Upon check in, I was unable to proceed with checking my luggage because apparently when I booked the flight through Kayak, it did not prompt me to indicate how many bags I would be checking on this flight. On the day of the flight, it costs $160 AUD to check a bag that is 15kg! $160AUD!!! That is an insanely high amount of money to check 1 piece of luggage. For every 1kg over 15, it is an additional $25AUD. Can you believe that? The airline refused to waive the fee and blamed the 3rd party booking company (Kayak) for the oversight. They did, however, let me sit in a exit row, free of charge. This is so backwards. I would have much rather just sat in a normal seat and checked my bag for free.

Once I boarded the flight, I was seated in an exit row, and something was leaking from the area above me. It looked like the color of coca-cola and/or urine. I called the flight attendant over to my seat once the seat-belt sign was off, and he immediately assumed that my bag in the overhead was causing the leak rather than running to bring something to clean it up and stop the leak. He kept checking the overhead luggage area when the leak was clearly coming from the air conditioning unit. The leak splattered onto my arm, book and passport. It was disgusting. I had to ask the flight attendant if I could move seats. I was not given any type of voucher for a free drink, free seat upgrade or free luggage check. Yuck. Thankfully the leak eventually stopped.

The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ.

I got there.

From check in to unboarding, the JetStar experience is absolutely awful. Their baggage policies are ridiculous, the airport staff are unhelpful, the website is useless, there is no true online check in (no electronic boarding passes). I get off every JetStar flight feeling like they've done everything in their power to discourage me from flying with them again.

Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates. We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time. Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket.

Mediocre 3.3

Meal on board was probably the worst I’ve ever had on any airline, including the very cheap Asian ones. Virgin has set a new low in customer service

Nothing I liked about virgin Australia airlines

Delay - The flight got delayed by an hour, no one knows why? the screen at the boarding area show on time despite online flight stats say dealyed Boarding - We were in economy and no one cares to smile, assistance is too far to think Food - Only two meals, one when we were asleep around 1am - 2am LA Time. After 12 hours into the trip breakfast was served, announcement was omelette, ham & cheese or French toast, but when they came to the seat, they had only omelette. Crew - One of the worst crew, they chat for hours together but no help to economy customer, no smile, no coffee, no snacks in long haul flight, wish had them on camera but didn't want to invade privacy of others, they offer rotten fruits if one asks for snack

Worst flight ever, no leg room, no free glass of water even, and got raped on luggage charges, won't fly with them again.

Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious

They look like they are offering a cheap price, but then charge you $160 NZ per bag. Only 7k allowed per carry on & they give no leeway. Don't even get complementary coffee or tea. No leg room seats are so crammed together. Take another airline you will save in the long run.

OK 4.0

Each bag costs $50 plus there was a charge for any food or drink.

I got there.

From check in to unboarding, the JetStar experience is absolutely awful. Their baggage policies are ridiculous, the airport staff are unhelpful, the website is useless, there is no true online check in (no electronic boarding passes). I get off every JetStar flight feeling like they've done everything in their power to discourage me from flying with them again.

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.
