Pros: because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US.

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: quick flight

Cons: At the airport I had the very bad surprise to learn that we were only allowed one carry-on luggage. Traveling in Australia from the US, we of course each had a suitcase to check-in in addition to our carry-on. I asked for an arrangement at the airport, but they could not provide any help like booking luggage on-line for a cheaper price and moving us to a different flight. In addition, customer service was very disorganized and inefficient at the airport. We received conflicting instructions from many different people, they did not want to help us. Fortunately, someone finally decided to get it done and helped us buy the luggage tickets. We paid $533 in luggage for two people for an hour flight!!

Pros: Inexpensive flight with many departure times

Cons: The flight was just under an hour and a half. It felt like the intercom was running constantly. They were selling raffle tickets for a car, they were selling snacks, they were asking for donations to a charity. The constant intercom communications were very frustrating. There is also a hidden $50 fee per checked bag with a limit of 15Kg. After that there is a charge for every kilogram over 15. We ended up paying $220 in baggage fees. It would have been cheaper to buy two more seats and buckle our luggage in.

So, nearly missed the flight even while arriving in plenty of time for boarding, we had to pay another $8 for the shuttle to the international terminal even though it was a domestic flight. Staff was not understanding of why that might be confusing, and kept referencing the amount of numbers in the flight number that should have magically indicated to us that it was an international flight.

Pros: Only one of the staff was friendly.

Cons: Only allowed 7 kilos of baggage, would have been nice to know that, the charge for my 10 kilo bag was $75, same price as my ticket, you find this out at the gate, what a scam. Flight was 1 hour late. Gate check in lady was yelling at customers to take out headphones and listen to her! Will not use them again.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Inexpensive flight with many departure times

Cons: The flight was just under an hour and a half. It felt like the intercom was running constantly. They were selling raffle tickets for a car, they were selling snacks, they were asking for donations to a charity. The constant intercom communications were very frustrating. There is also a hidden $50 fee per checked bag with a limit of 15Kg. After that there is a charge for every kilogram over 15. We ended up paying $220 in baggage fees. It would have been cheaper to buy two more seats and buckle our luggage in.

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: quick flight

Cons: At the airport I had the very bad surprise to learn that we were only allowed one carry-on luggage. Traveling in Australia from the US, we of course each had a suitcase to check-in in addition to our carry-on. I asked for an arrangement at the airport, but they could not provide any help like booking luggage on-line for a cheaper price and moving us to a different flight. In addition, customer service was very disorganized and inefficient at the airport. We received conflicting instructions from many different people, they did not want to help us. Fortunately, someone finally decided to get it done and helped us buy the luggage tickets. We paid $533 in luggage for two people for an hour flight!!

Okay 5.0

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.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Everything went well and was as advertised. This is a low cost carrier so their business model relies on extra charges for everything. Prepaid my luggage for $19 each way and decided not to order any food (much cheaper at the airport anyway). People just have to be aware that low cost carriers like Jetstar can offer such affordable fares by excluding many things. Qantas would have been approximately 2x as expensive per flight and would have included more things, but the appeal of low cost is to be able to choose what you need.

Pros: It is a budget airline so don't expect royal treatment. However, compared to other budget airlines I've flew on, this one is pretty decent. You can bring carry on, only it has to be under a certain weight. The chairs recline and the staff is very nice.

Okay 4.0

Pros: the cabin crew had personality and weren't as rigid as others. the were natural yet professional.

Cons: firstly, flight was delayed which make the third consecutive time I've flown tiger, boarding, was limited communication from staff as to who was boarding, confusing customers from to flights causing both to line up simultaneously then one told to sit back back after reaching the front. the next line on to the tarmac was positioned incorrectly, being that every customer had to walk past gate to the back of an inconspicuous line that wasn't clearly marked, prompting 70% of the customers to ask the lady directing people to the correct ends of the plane for boarding, which inevitably resulted in the lady to get quite short with them. then we boarded and this is an isolated personal issues, I'm quite tall and had issue with actually fitting my knees in the spacing provided, but that was the least of what i saw to be fundamental issues with easy solutions that were simply being over looked. the cabin crew were lovely.

Cons: check in was poor. could not even check in online. small crampy seats food was the worse I have ever eaten - there was terrible selection and what was given was poor. You basically get a one course meal. The food badly made and tasteless. coffee was blend and watered down. Ultimately this was like going on a budget airline paying for full price.

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.

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.
