The food was decent, plane was delayed and we flew business. It would’ve been good if they brought over some more drinks during the delay. Maybe they should’ve started preparing the supper meals on the ground too so they were ready to go when we finally took off just because it was a red eye flight of just 5 hours and it would have made much more sense to allow us more sleep time.

The seats in business are totally weird. There is a metal foot rest that’s quite common in premium economy but the stretch seemed very short. I’m a short guy and I found my feet hanging over this bar which was uncomfortable. Also the pitch of the seat and short seat made both my partner and I slide down the seat. Perhaps the seats Jet star selects for its business could have calf rests that are located higher up so our legs are elevated more like in a chaise lounge or hammock for don’t slide down. The absolute worst thing about Jetstar flights are the passengers. The lowest common denominator Australians book budget airlines (especially Jetstar) and they rush the gate, over pack their 7kg of carryon, they are rough and loud and have little control of their children. They don’t know the difference beteeen inside and outside voices and speaking to someone face to face instead of shouting from a distance. Perhaps Jetstar should have a flying etiquette email and in seat card to remind people of how to behave. One braided head wench was berating the poor guy checking tickets at the gate who asked her to finish her water as a condition of EVERY AIRLINE and AIRPORT. He didn’t deserve her uneducated rudeness.

The cabin crew were most helpful in helping me get out of the plane first, and escorting me into the terminal to find the fastest way of getting to the international terminal. I am most thankful to them.

The flight left 2+ hours late and I nearly missed my international connection in Brisbane

Flight was delayed by 1hour, then by another 20 min, then we sat and waited without any information as to what was going on for another 40 min before we finally boarded. Not good enough Jetstar!

check in easy at Adelaide airport

The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can.

15 hour flight and the crew walked up and down the isle every 3-4 minutes shining a flashlight in your face and over all the seats.

Free entertainment was a pleasant surprise. Luggage check-in was another, my luggage made it from Perth to Queenstown even though the 2 fights were separate bookings and changed from Virgin to Air New Zealand.

NO legroom. Thank God for the short (3.5 hrs) flight. Tall people are definitely being discriminated against if we have to pay more for equivalent comfort.

Seemed like a good pilot - that's most important. Modern Plane.

1) The boarding from the rear/tarmac/stairs. 2) The officious attendant at check in. 3) The insane rule that a small carry on (that meets all international guidelines) cannot weigh more than 7 kg. 4) The pitiful beverage service (water/juice/coffee/tea) not even sparkling water. The price was high enough - not to have to put up with these issues.

This is my third time flying with Virgin Australia from LAX to Sydney return. I LOVE this airline. The staff at every point are friendly, responsive, professional and helpful. I loved the service on board. Nothing seems to be too difficult (this was refreshing as I have flown on many flights throughout Asia and America where the service ethic was not strong. Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service.

The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer.

Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home.

Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip.

Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service.

Free entertainment was a pleasant surprise. Luggage check-in was another, my luggage made it from Perth to Queenstown even though the 2 fights were separate bookings and changed from Virgin to Air New Zealand.

NO legroom. Thank God for the short (3.5 hrs) flight. Tall people are definitely being discriminated against if we have to pay more for equivalent comfort.

The fact that we arrived at our destination.

Flight was delayed by 1hour, then by another 20 min, then we sat and waited without any information as to what was going on for another 40 min before we finally boarded. Not good enough Jetstar!

The crew was polite.

Food: all food cost. Coffee/tea was four dollars. We pre-ordered our food and it was not available. They substituted our food with a large “cup of noodles“ which was terrible. Very surprised that all food cost. Too many unexpected fees. I’m uncomfortable plane! Way too crowded! Was charged and unexpected fee for a visa. Jetstar charged $50 per person! Flight was 9 1/2 hours late!

The food was decent, plane was delayed and we flew business. It would’ve been good if they brought over some more drinks during the delay. Maybe they should’ve started preparing the supper meals on the ground too so they were ready to go when we finally took off just because it was a red eye flight of just 5 hours and it would have made much more sense to allow us more sleep time.

The seats in business are totally weird. There is a metal foot rest that’s quite common in premium economy but the stretch seemed very short. I’m a short guy and I found my feet hanging over this bar which was uncomfortable. Also the pitch of the seat and short seat made both my partner and I slide down the seat. Perhaps the seats Jet star selects for its business could have calf rests that are located higher up so our legs are elevated more like in a chaise lounge or hammock for don’t slide down. The absolute worst thing about Jetstar flights are the passengers. The lowest common denominator Australians book budget airlines (especially Jetstar) and they rush the gate, over pack their 7kg of carryon, they are rough and loud and have little control of their children. They don’t know the difference beteeen inside and outside voices and speaking to someone face to face instead of shouting from a distance. Perhaps Jetstar should have a flying etiquette email and in seat card to remind people of how to behave. One braided head wench was berating the poor guy checking tickets at the gate who asked her to finish her water as a condition of EVERY AIRLINE and AIRPORT. He didn’t deserve her uneducated rudeness.

Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home.

Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip.

Seemed like a good pilot - that's most important. Modern Plane.

1) The boarding from the rear/tarmac/stairs. 2) The officious attendant at check in. 3) The insane rule that a small carry on (that meets all international guidelines) cannot weigh more than 7 kg. 4) The pitiful beverage service (water/juice/coffee/tea) not even sparkling water. The price was high enough - not to have to put up with these issues.

The cabin crew were most helpful in helping me get out of the plane first, and escorting me into the terminal to find the fastest way of getting to the international terminal. I am most thankful to them.

The base price is very low. We were slightly over ~1kg our allotted 7kg/passenger and they let us go.

No entertainment on the flight whatsoever. The space in the seat is a bit tight, doesn't recline very much either.

15 hour flight and the crew walked up and down the isle every 3-4 minutes shining a flashlight in your face and over all the seats. I asked if this would continue all night and they said yes as it’s how they check on drunk passengers etc and that it was part of the aircraft safety. Was very intrusive and impossible to sleep.

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.
