Cons: "Quality of snacks Quality of in flight entertainment still very poor"

Pros: "The virgin lounge."
Cons: "Bit more variety."

Pros: "friendly efficient crew, good food, and good luggage allowance"

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "food choices in business class ordinary"

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "I arrived home safely!"
Cons: "The hostess ran out of tea and when I asked for a top up she did not come back"

Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless, food was great, crew was o.k. and there was entertainment/access to movies."
Cons: "The chairs...they must do something about the cushions. Too thin for me especially on long 14/15 hour flight."

Pros: "Taking my elderly mother up to the Gold Coast to visit my sister is always a challenge but thanks to the beautiful staff at Virgin it was made so easy. Just outstanding customer service. Thank you so much."

Cons: "Has it really come down to this To the Vegan that put this on the menu as the snack for the masses do you really find this appropriate"

Pros: "Happy hour Is great marketing move for us tired working people to start our journey Like flights used to be"

Cons: "Poor office counter skills of customer service. I could not use their online software through my cell phone, so as a result I could not add my additional luggage that I had, and still wanted to charge me 70 dollars for this."

Cons: "Entertainment is very B if not C grade At least the crew was a lot happier than my previous flight"

Cons: "I didn't get a ticket through the reservation and had to pay extra at the airport for another seat."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "I missed my plane.so i lost money.but you wouldn't care you made money..sad"

Cons: "Refer to heading Virgin I think you are taking cheap too far"

Pros: "Great boarding and efficient flight"
Cons: "The crew - unsmiling, unfriendly and seemed to hate their jobs. Food - meusli bar !"

Pros: "Very nice staff"

Pros: "Comfortable. Enough leg room."
Cons: "Our departure time kept changing every 10 mins. If we had known, we could have stayed/roamed around town for an extra couple of hours."

Pros: "The service was great, as well as the entertainment and food"
Cons: "Felt too cramped in seat"

Cons: "30 mins on the phone to get a meal voucher that covered less than half the cost of the. Meal"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no compensation, had to find somewhere to stay, travel to and from airport for a flight the next day instead."

Pros: "Baggage price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seating was ok and staff friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment or even papers on a 2 hour flight. Refreshment menu is pretty awful and expensive."

Cons: "I would have liked to know about the virgin entertainment app ahead of time. By the time the captain announced the option to use the app it was too late to download."

Pros: "Virgin service has always been great in my experience"

Pros: "Boarded and departed on time. Good smooth flight."
Cons: "No window at seating. Disappointing for child traveller"

Pros: "Short distance, so don't care"
Cons: "Little bit of delay"

Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment system and no WiFi. No food onboard. No credit card use. All soft drinks were purchase only. Cheap and nasty airline. Onboard Crew are miserable, ground crew just as miserable. Won't use again."

Pros: "The egg and lettuce sandwich was fresh and delicious! A bigger serving would have been nice. The Cadbury biscuit chocolate was also a perfect match with a coffee."
Cons: "The inflight entrainment could have been more extensive. For example the big fat Greek wedding advertised in the inflight magazine wasn't available as a selection."

Cons: "Would've liked to know the inflight entertainment required you to download an app onto your phone or tablet before the flight. No screens on the plane, and you have to watch stuff on your own device. If you don't have international data, you need to use the wifi in the airport first. Once you're on the flight, it's too late."

Cons: "In flight entertainment. Need more documentaries"

Pros: "On time. Courteous employees."

Cons: "Travelled business class for a change expecting a meal. But there was not meal only nuts cheese and crackers. The red wine was excellent"

Pros: "Good crew, very friendly. Went above and beyond to find a passenger at baggage claim who left something on board."
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed."

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."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and tickets were a great price"
Cons: "No legroom at all, very cramped"

Pros: "It was a full flight and all went smoothly"
Cons: "It could have been on time bu these things happen"

Pros: "Not much. 1hr 5min flight was 1 hr 10 min late. The cabin crew seemed disinterested."
Cons: "The crew was poor. One chewing gum, another picking her hair/head throughout the flight like she has nits. The third lolling around and chatting/gossiping to the others. This is a short flight. The least they could have done was behave professionally."

Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable, crew was lovely"
Cons: "Tired seats should be updated."

Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and landing. Flight time is great. Not very many disruptions in the overnight flight."
Cons: "The check-in process is overly long. Being a low cost carrier doesn't mean you need to sacrifice efficiency on this part. This could be much smoother with an automated bag drop are for international flights or a check-in at the oversized X-ray machine (since so many people bring skis & surfboards."

Cons: "Could have left on time 2 hours late leaveing NZ"

Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy."

Cons: "I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They do not tell you about cheaper online baggage check in and then charge 10 times at the gate. We had to pay $605 for 3 checked in suitcases!"

Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"

Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"

Pros: "Got here early! Love that!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew and flight were ok."
Cons: "The checked baggage policy is lacking"

Pros: "They did try to make up time in the air"
Cons: "Plane was a little late arriving so boarding was delayed which then resulted in longer delays as wind gusts kicked in and could not take off after boarding the plane result missed bus connections"

Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"

Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"

Pros: "Flights today on time"
Cons: "Never in 30+ years of flying have I not been able to ticket both legs of a trip at the start, especially both legs on same airline. We had to pay $60 AUS to Check my daughter’s carry on at the gate because her backpack was over 7 kilos, with no option to have it count toward our overall max weight. Also had 4 hour layover but could not do the manual transfer to next leg until 3 hours before flight, putting a dent into our layover plans. I will avoid using this airline due to hassles in the future."

Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."

Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "The whole Jetstar team"

Pros: "Stormy weather made for a bumpy ride but that is no ones fault. Everything else as one would expect from a short flight"

Cons: "Kayak didn’t allow me to add luggage to my booking and forced me to go through Jetstars website and alter my booking. Here, the site only let me add luggage to my trip up. At the airport, completely unaware of the situation, I was made to look stupid then hit with a $60 “amendment” fee. On top of all that, my flight home was delayed an hour. This is the second time in 2 months this flight has been delayed."

Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"

Pros: "Staff were kind and attentive. Got the emergency aisle seat without asking which is always a bonus."
Cons: "Because I booked through Kayak it wasn't clear to me that baggage and in fact meals were not included! I got stung 16000 yen for my bag and was too late to order meal service . I had to grab what I could in departures. I would like this to be clearer in the price comparison on the kayak website. Wouldn't have chosen this flight if I'd known."

Cons: "Nil to report"

Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."

Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"

Pros: "The ice with my champagne"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours with no nappies for my 1 year old ... no priority boarding for families with shattered children ... lying boarding staff Vallentyn or something like that ... no ability to check in online due to a message saying we had a special request ... we didn't and have checked online to HNL and SIN recently with JQ without a problem."

Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Crew attitude."

Pros: "Newcastle airport has made it so easy"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and Jetstardid not bother to send an email advising flight cancellation."

Cons: "Flight cancelled Had to recheck in. Boarding gate changed 3 times"

Cons: "I flew from New Zealand to Australia and did not get a meal, or any media. I had just previously flown the other way with another airline and got both of these things since it is an international flight. The weirdest thing is that there was no complementary snacks or even water. You had to pay for it."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled at short notice without explanation"

Pros: "Not really anything."
Cons: "Our first flight from queenstown to Gold Coast was delayed for 4 hours, so we were going to miss our connecting flight to cairns. The desk agent in queenstown told us that we could catch the Sydney flight and due to the mistakes that Jetstar made, we would be able to spend our layover in the Qantas lounge. Once we landed, we tried to go to the Qantas lounge and were denied entry and told that we needed Jetstar to call Qantas and give us access. We then went back to Jetstar and they told us there was nothing we could do. We were stuck in the airport, unable to check our luggage as Jetstar has a 2 hour check in policy, and nowhere to go. Will NEVER fly with them again."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "This airline is worse than most low cost US based airlines. Both times I have flown with them it has been a disaster. I only booked with them because of price and because I did not know they were low cost. You get no food, no drinks, no entertainment, they gouge u for baggage. Stay away from jet star pay just a little more to fly a good airline."

Pros: "Great friendly cabin crew Only slightly delayed."
Cons: "Checkin staff gave us back row seats that sit straight up with less legroom without asking if we were OK with that and different than we asked for. Stewardess moved us forward into empty seats after we objected.."

Pros: "Seats were tolerable and crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed for half an hour. Not an issue for me personally, but I've flown Jetstar six times in the past two months and only one of those weren't delayed. Tiger is better these days."

Pros: "The staff were very warm & professional from the beginning at check in to the end of departing our flight. Would recommend again."
Cons: "You can only purchase food with a debit card or Credit card."

Pros: "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."
Cons: "The flight left 2+ hours late and I nearly missed my international connection in Brisbane"

Cons: "Inconsistencies in interpretation of cabin baggage Browns cows boarding procedures, lack of organization, time wasting system of issuing boarding pass at the gate after scanning tablet or phone, perhaps that should be done at bag drop"

Cons: "I arrived for my flight from Narita to Melbourne only to find that I had to walk over 1,000 meters to get to the check-in and terminal even though I was told to go to the Terminal 2 / 3 stop in the Narita train. Once I got to the check-in counter, the line was very long and everyone seemed overworked. By the time I go tot he counter it was getting late. I tried to check in but apparently my eVisa had expired. I have been traveling to Australia countless number of times and normally they process a new visa directly at the airport. I was told by the staff that "this was not possible" and waved me away. They said there was no way to check-in. I stood by the side of the counter and quickly found my own on line service to process a visa. I was able to get my Visa in 10 minutes, and applied for it on my iPhone! My Visa came through, but only just after the cut off time for the flight check in. Despite that fact that flight had not departed, and would not for another 30 minutes or so, they simply closed up the booking counter and left me standing there... They wouldn't even give me any information on what to do or whether my flight would be canceled or credited back. This rates as one of my worst travel experiences. I went back to my hotel in Tokyo, and then decided to fly the next morning on Singapore air. I did not book on Kayak the second time. I don't think I would ever fly JetStar again."

Pros: "I was surprised how comfortable the seats were and how much legroom there was for a low cost airline to fly internationally such a long distance (Tokyo to Sydney). The crew were friendly and we did receive water and tea for free, which was a surprise. The entertainment selection was pretty good and the screens were the nicest HD screens I've seen on an international flight."
Cons: "Had to connect in Gold Coast before arriving in Sydney. I know this is normal for many international flights, but it would have been nice to have a nonstop Tokyo to Sydney. I guess that is why it is a discount airline!"

Cons: "We (I, my wife and son ) did not know our booking with no baggage. The woman asked me $100 baggage fee when we checked in. However, total weight with our three baggages is only about 30 Kg. Each baggage is accord to the carry on boarding rule. In fact, we only want to check in one baggage. But, she told me $50 per baggage. She cheat us. Buy 20 Kg baggage only need $24 in Jetstar internet."

Pros: "Best crew I've ever had on a flight."
