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!!

Excellent 8.0

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.

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: We had a row of drunk boys directly behind us. They drank non-stop, were extremely noisy and obnoxious - standing in the aisles, shaking seats, and yelling/singing non-stop. Worst flight I have been on this year as the crew did nothing to address this issue despite numerous complaints. P

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!!

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: 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: 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.

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.
