Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Air Crew was polite. Ground crew was the slowest and most inefficient group of people I've witnessed. There'd be 3 people working, but 2 of them would be talking to each other, letting the queues build up."
Cons: "Ground experience was pretty terrible at the airport. Most likely I'd avoid flying through here again."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, good crew, early landing."
Cons: "15 minutes stuck on the bus at disembarkation sucked."
Pros: "The crew were super patient (a must when dealing with the quality of passengers from Trichy who were lacking in manners and etiquette)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The majority of passengers seem to not be used to the normal manners and etiquette of queuing and it was chaotic with pushing. Some discipline and order needs to be enforced by ground crew (and this will no doubt make the cabin crews' lives easier)."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but could not find the queue easily to check in as well as there was no priority boarding line up during boarding. My seat did not decline at all. I paid for a window seat but got a completely blank wall. Flights were late."
Pros: "Nothing. We had to sit on the runway for an 1 hour 40 mins. Staff didn’t even give away water, you had to purchase it... outrageous"
Pros: "Not sure if I have much trust in the crew. Most of the female crew would walk past passengers who had their seats reclined or in the toilets and other situations and wouldn’t notice (during take off and landing) and the guy would come past later and do her job for them. Ground staff in Bangkok"
Cons: "Allow us to upgrade class"
Pros: "Crew were kindly"
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"
Pros: "Can't complain"
Cons: "Cheaper? :) !"
Cons: "Music or movie will be good."
Pros: "I hope never to fly Scoot again."
Cons: "Extremely rude and uncaring staff. I hate not being booked through with boarding passes. You have to wait in line at every stop, go through security and wait to get your ongoing boarding pass. The Scoot transfer people in Singapore are the most rude people I've ever met."
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to board the plane because my passport only had five months left on it but you still let me book the flight and I was not refunded"
Cons: "The flight cancelled.first we boarded twice and been waiting for 7 hours Inside and outside the plane thereafter they gave up and decided to cancel it ..it was nightmare"
Pros: "Overall okay. Food was not in our list because the flight is about one and a half hour. No entertainment as it was a short one and we departed earlier than the estimated time."
Pros: "Good price. Was on time, seats were comfortable, helpful staff"
Cons: "No use of headphones 30 minutes before take off and arrival"
Pros: "Everything worked"
Cons: "Unfair policy of no outside food, treating its customers in a captive state; cabin is dirty with little cleaning work done. Won't fly if it were not cheap."
Pros: "Crew on Singapore airlines were very helpful, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "They had 0 entertainment on an 8 hour flight. Tv turned off. One small meal after 20 minutes of flying. Would not fly with scoot again."
Cons: "Seats we given did not recline .as they were just in front of emergency exit . The extra leg room seats were empty, but would have to pay extra to sit on them"
Pros: "Ok time"
Cons: "No free drink"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Journey / organisation"
Cons: "Boarding process Delayed flight"
Pros: "very nice while Landed and take off."
Cons: "We did not order any foods. No suggestion."
Pros: "Punctuality was good. No complaints generally."
Cons: "Temp in cabin too high."
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Cons: "If they have a policy that passengers cant eat food bought outside the aircraft they should make sure that they have variations/choices on their menu. I can only eat fish but they dont have it on their menu so i brought my own food but the crew asked me to stop eating it because it was not allowed. Im hungry and tired and was upset that time."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "How can the the airline serve such terrible food that smells of processed plastic!!! It is served burning hot and unedivle."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, saw them help several people put their luggage in the overhead bin."
Cons: "There was absolutely no complimentary service at all, a bit unusual compared to flights we've taken in the past (domestic and international). No offer of free water, what's up with that?!?! There was no entertainment on board for an overnight flight, no blanket, no pillow. And on top of that we paid too much to check in a bag when we arrived at the airline desk because we didn't include it through our Kayak booking. Had we known there was a method to follow, we would have to avoid the excessive fee."
Pros: "Good value. Some leg room in Biz."
Cons: "Paid $30 for wi-fi: It never connected. Just failed to work. “Failed to load page”. Paid for priority check-in: The people in the economy queue checked in faster. Paid for priority boarding: No priority security queue, no priority boarding. Paid for priority baggage: Took 60 minutes from landing for baggage to arrive. No priority, except for crew bags. Food was disgusting. Hard to determine where the plastic finished and the pasta started. There was no service, other than dumping a hot plastic box in your lap."
Pros: "Relaxed boarding and inflight experience Offer of refreshments when baggage delivery was delayed"
Cons: "Delay in delivering baggage"
Cons: "Going from one hot country to another so had no need for a winter coat... it was so cold on that flight I caught a cold"
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "They were very professional, polite and helpful"
Pros: "QUIET ZONE"
Cons: "FLIGHT AIR CON TO COLD NOT ENOUGH TOILETS"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "All in all a pretty good flight. Nothing much to write home about but nothing really went wrong. Pretty Good and what you'd expect."
Cons: "Wasn't thrilled that I had to pay SGD48 both ways for up to 15kg check in. That extra SGD96 would have made a difference when comparing flights on Kayak. Delays leaving HK and SG but all of it was on the tarmac so not really Scoots fault."
Pros: "Easy and cheap"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Scoot Airlines is a budget airline and is a great choice hopping from one spot to another in SE Asia. I use it quite a bit for travel between Singapore and Bangkok."
Pros: "It was all great. Paid extra for the quiet area. Worth it"
Pros: "Nothing other than punctuality."
Cons: "After boarding started there was no Aircon the flight was boiling hot and hugely suffocated. Also so many mosquito surely need better service."
Cons: "Boarding was quite messy as flight was delayed but many passengers were not informed. Only one service officer was being bombarded with questions from passengers when it would save so much trouble just making a proper announcement in the first place. Boarding queue also merged with another flight departing at a similar time, causing a massive bottleneck. Whilst on board, pre-ordered food was not served with cutlery and it took another 15 mins to get the attn of the stewardess to get the cutlery served. Would have been faster to just get it myself."
Pros: "It's a no frills airline! Plane on time, clean, arrived on time. What more do you want?"
Pros: "It was a full flight and all went smoothly"
Cons: "It could have been on time bu these things happen"
Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"
Cons: "There're unoccupied rows, but still pack passenger together instead of offering the empty seats to couples."
Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"
Cons: "Slugged $60 for having one kg extra than on the flight down. Rep Australia in senior golf event ..given a wine box this was weighed too. What a rip off!"
Pros: "I got home. Eventually."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2hrs with no real explanation"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Jetstar terminal has a lack of seating"
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"
Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"
Pros: "great flight - fast and easy."
Cons: "it's jetstar so seats aren't the most comfy, but for a few hours, it's just fine."
Cons: "Delayed as usual - luggage check again"
Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"
Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"
Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The landing was super rocky"
Cons: "Crew attitude"
Cons: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."
Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "The cabin staff were friendly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to excess baggage weight in hull. The baggage had to be unloaded and then reloaded again, while we sat on the tarmac for an hour."
Cons: "Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers."
Pros: "Customer service was great.Flight was on time and the weather was good for a day and a half"
Cons: "I did not like it when i got to the airport up there at 7:15 pm and when my Brand new suitcase came around on the carousel it had 2 smashed handles on it.I Reported it straight away to the people in departures.The young guy their gave me a number to ring, which i will be doing tomorrow"
Cons: "Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead."
Pros: "They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before."
Cons: "No further updates when revised departure time had past and we were still waiting in line. Delay avoidable and not acceptable for first flight of the morning"
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"
Cons: "Lack of legroom."
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"
Pros: "Kayak never told me that there is going to be check in bag fees. I was charged 160 dollars for 1 bag. Kayak should have informed me upfront. Thanks Sameer"
Cons: "They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Shame the staff were not more friendly, I took my rubbish to find a bin and the flight attendant expressed her annoyance and me. Asking her where I can put it. They don't smile and when you asked a question they treated me like I was a nuisance"
Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"
Pros: "Efficient on time departure and arrival. Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Credit card only for purchases without advance notice is a bit ordinary"
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Configuration 2 3 2 and seat pitch and reclining"
Pros: "It was a good flight, good pilot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed It is a 7+ hour flight I think you could offer some snacks and coffee or tea for free At least one good movie for free Every airline I've chosen to fly with does it but Jetstar It was quite disappointing"
Pros: "I could not get my boarding pass from Melbourne airport for my subsequent trip Singapore to Dhaka. So, travel experience was not good. Otherwise it was okay. Razzaque"
Pros: "Due to storms a 1 1/2 hour delay which is understandable until I found a friend on Qantas left on time. Delay on all Jetstar to Sydney and that afternoon but unaccountably Qantas mostly in time."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time which was great for a tight schedule. In fact it arrived a little earlier than scheduled. The cabin crew noted my One World status with a light meal. Preferential boarding from the boarding lounge was OK."
Cons: "No preferential checkin counter, and the staff made me negotiate my own entry to the Premier Lounge in the terminal. Surely the airline can recognise its One World obligations without the hassle I had to put up."
Pros: "The smooth takeoff and landing, the staff cortesies"
Cons: "The 5min wait but perfect otherwise"
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
Cons: "plane was half hour late leaving because JetStar does not allow enough time for turn arounds from plane arriving from elsewhere. That said, the pilot did do his best to catch up for lost time once in the air."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 35mins. Seats very crowded, we all had to get out of our seats to let the window passenger in and out. No screens on seat backs, lucky I had my iPad and could listen to podcasts in the 3+hr flight."
Cons: "it delay too late at night. Others services were very good"
Pros: "Extra leg room seats"
Cons: "Lack of movie choices"
Cons: "Seats have no lumbar support. Uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great people , completely happy with my trip ' ! Thanks jets star"
