Pros: We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option).

Cons: Seats on Jetstar are a bit uncomfortable but for a short flight, it doesn't matter as much. Also, the luggage went to the wrong carousel for many folks on our flight.

Pros: Flight was good.

Cons: Check is cthe confusing. First you cannot check in online. It was a domestic flight but check in was in international terminal. The lines were confusing and we had to change lines because of the confusion. There was no one to answer your querstions. I had to interrupt an check in person who was helping someone else so not to be late for flight.

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: Plane was nice and comfortable

Cons: Flight was second leg of an international flight but that wasn't indicated anywhere nor were there any alerts. 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.

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.

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!!

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!!

OK 4.0

Pros: Charges for more than 7kg for carryon (all combined carryon)! Geez, the bag weighs 3-4 kg empty and the charge is exorbitant! Where’s the focus on customers first? Prefer Qantas and will stick with them in the future. My first and only Jetstar experience was a 2

Cons: See above

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Seats were comfortable and great collection of entertainment even tho had pay

Cons: Checking process in Denpasar was really bad. Had to wait almost 45 min at the counter even tho I had all the visa documents. Lack of knowledge of the ground staff of Jetstar. They need to get trained well.

Pros: Smooth flight, easy interstate flight with no hassle.

Cons: Jetstar boarding pass system is very silly. You can't use the email ones on your phone and have to actually print it out. As a suggestion.. maybe have a unified option instead? Charging sms service is ridiculous.. it is 2017!

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Flight was good.

Cons: Check is cthe confusing. First you cannot check in online. It was a domestic flight but check in was in international terminal. The lines were confusing and we had to change lines because of the confusion. There was no one to answer your querstions. I had to interrupt an check in person who was helping someone else so not to be late for 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: Not much. We booked the tickets in a package with other flights operated by other airlines.

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.
