Cons: Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke.

Cons: Flight was delayed - Then the Jetstar staff were ;late so a flight that was already late was delayed even further. I know you are a discount airline, but the seats are truly awful. I will never fly with you again and will tell friends and family never to either - The small saving made from flying with you is not worth the constat delays and how uncomfortable the whole journey is

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: Hassled at luggage check in. Had to throw out clothes and shoes to meet weight requirements as they charge $25 a kilogram for extra weight which was not disclosed when we received our confirmation. We were the only ones hassled over being a few kilos over each. Many people hand large luggage carry ons which wouldn't even fit in the luggage testers yet no one said anything to them. 90 percent of the people were easily over the 7KG weight allowance for carry on luggage and were not hassled at all. It was pure discrimination and perhaps it was because I was italian or my wife had blond hair. Who knows. I have been on hundreds of flights in my life and have never been so humiliated in my life. The blonde luggage counter and boarding ticket taker, was insulting and even insisted on seeing our australian visitors permit which is not required according to Australian customs once you have paid for it and are registered. She even tried to force my wife to check her bag even though it fit in their luggage sizing testers. Another tall lady with glasses at the luggage check in area, was also very insulting and discriminated against us. Horrible experience. Both of those people would be fired if I was running the airline. Its a service business and while I understand rules, you have to have some discretion and if your going to enforce them, they must apply to all passengers, not just 2 people out of 150!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Ground staff attitude, very inconsiderate, we thought that being an international flight , we were entitled to checked baggage so did not include that when we did booking. Found out at the airport that we did not have any checked baggage allowance. Although we explained that this was an error as we were under the impression that checked baggage was always included for international flights they were very in considerate and made us pay $ 320.00. Will inform everyone to avoid Jet Star airlines when they travel.

Cons: Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again.

Pros: no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies

Cons: Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like.

Pros: Nickled and dimed for literally every single thing, paid $100 to check my bag, not even a free cup of water, jetstar is literally the worst version of budget airline hell. Absolutely made me regret my entire trip, I was never so uncomfortable while traveling . I will never fly jetstar again.

Cons: Paying, not just for extras, but for basic human needs like water is a terrible feeling. jetstar was uncaring and exploitative of the fact that the minute we purchased tickets., we were under their power completely. There was no regard for human feelings or really life of any kinds. I felt like cattle

Okay 4.0

Pros: They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The flight was scheduled to leave just after 6 in the morning. However the time kept on being pushed back because they couldn't fix the problem. I understand things happen but the plane was sitting there overnight. They could have checked it earlier to determine if it was ready to go which might have allowed them to fix the problem instead of canceling the flight.

Cons: Turns out while I thought luggage was included in the package it wasn't and was a massive rush at check in to get luggage balanced and paid for without going over the $160 for 15kg limit. Reminded me why I won't be flying Jetstar again and the KAYAK system did not make it clear what i was buying. Very disappointed

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Flight cancelled because internet went down on site. However, Virgin Australia and Qantas airlines were able to paper book their passengers and fly to destination. Jet star couldn’t do the same. Even though the internet came back up Jetstar couldn’t complete the passenger flight check in. The Airport staff stated the internet was a risk and instead put 200 people on buses and drove us 5 hours across a 42C desert. Somehow driving across the desert was safer. The icing on the cake was the Internet stayed up for the next hour prior to our bus ride and within the flight crews crew day. So, we could all have flown home with the Jetstar flight crew who actually flew back to Sydney. Yes missed the fireworks and expensive hotel stay on New Years Eve. Finally, Jetstar rebooked is on a flight to Adelaide then to Sydney so we wouldn’t arrive until 945pm. I certainly didn’t appreciate my direct 3 hour flight being turned into a 5 hour bus ride then a 7 hour flight. Oh, please tell them thanks for the piece of cheese and two crackers, apple and apple juice for dinner. What could be done better.....eliminate Jetstar from your list of service providers.

Pros: I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too. The lamb curry is sublime. I would have it every day to be honest. I was also lucky that I had passengers who sat next to me, who were kind and lovely.

Cons: Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious.

Good 7.3

Pros: Friendly flight attendant, good food, clean seat

Cons: They checked in my mag with knowing my transfer time to the connecting flight in another country is only 10 mins delayed despite I kept questioning them. They told me there would be people "escort " me through the security check point and the flight would help us. And they even told me they knew I had "enough" time to transfer that's why airline did not change my flight. But once I checked in my luggage and passed the security check, I received a new flight ticket through email. They totally changed my connecting flight to a much later one. Only 20 mins later after they told me to check in my luggage and promise the connecting flight would wait for me. Later the manager said" I don't know who told you that, but no one could catch a connecting flight in 10 mins."

No one to tell you early which line and existing signs for economy and Premium do not stand out .. staff need to be on the ground sooner letting people know and asking them which seats to prevent most people being in the wrong queue

Pros: Head rests on bigger flight Nice flight attendants

Cons: Having to pay 100 dollars to pay for baggage I didn't even know I had to pre buy. Just ridiculous! This is not common and should be able to be purchased when you check in like everywhere else. "Read the fine print" is not a right cause to screw people over. Having to pay to watch movies. Free section a complete joke!

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
