Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "No the crew weren’t amazing & the seats were just okay. The flight was pretty full. The guy driving made two safe landings at Avalon"
Cons: "Jetstar - c,mon, it’s an airborne bus really."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Nice crew inside the plane"
Cons: "It is outrageous the price for overweight cabin that was not even 10kg. Not food or entertainment included in ticket price. Even if it's a short flight, at least water to keep passengers hydrated should provide. Really uncomfortable with this situation."
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."
Pros: "The touch down landing was PERFECTLY smooth!! Thank you Captain!"
Cons: "Small walkway and seats."
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "It’s okay"
Pros: "I luved the attendants and the service"
Cons: "THE AIRPORT IS NOT IN MELBOURNE! We had to hire an Uber for 100 dollars to drive us the hour to Melbourne. It should be clearer when booking this airport is significantly farther away. It would have been more convenient and economical to fly into melbournes international airport."
Pros: "Got here early! Love that!"

Pros: "Attention to details"
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Pros: "the actual flight was fine"
Cons: "When I looked up the flight option through your site I selected one checked bag per person and it showed the price and I decided to purchase. Then when I tried to check in at Jetstar online it showed I had no checked bags WHY?! then I complained about it in an online chat and the chat agent would not agree and said I had to pay for checked bags if I had any and said he/she could do that and asked how much the bags weighed. Since I did not know and could not answer how much the weighed I decided to check them online myself since it gave me options for weight/price I knew our bags would be under - the chat ended and I proceeded to try to pay for one bag each online. However, after more than a half dozen attempts which were all rejected I had to close the online check in and leave as we were running short on time to get things done and get to the airport. At the airport I told all this to the agent at bag check and she would do noting but charged me about $240 for the two bags - grossly more than the $28 for one and $38 for the other that I was trying to pay online & roughly as much as the cost of the flights! Will you please let me know what can be done to get my money back as this is just not right?"
Cons: "Flight change fee within 24h of booking would have been $120 for a $49 flight. Carry-on was 9kg instead of 7kg - $60 extra fee. Never again."
Pros: "Avalon is quiet, decent facilities"
Cons: "Should give water on the flight. Didn’t buy food didn’t use entertainment"
Cons: "It was good flight"
Cons: "Rude ground staff."
Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."
Cons: "Didn't realize when I booked I'd be charged $60 for a lightweight duffel, one way. Will not repeat."
Pros: "And different from other international carriers ( 20 kg instead of 23 kg). I had to pay 105 AUS for a carry-on from Sydney to Melbourne. It would have been less expensive for the carry-on to buy a seat."
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: "Eat and sleep"
Pros: "The fact that we tried to check our bags 10 minutes too early but the bag check desk used the ten minutes to train new staff and allowed us to shave $25 off a potential bag weight fee."
Cons: "Need to repeat several times if you change a gate number for our flight."
Cons: "Nil to report"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the landing was very smooth"
Pros: "Newcastle airport has made it so easy"
Cons: "With an aisle seat, bumped several times by crew everyone they walked up and down the aircraft"
Pros: "Efficiency, timeliness, friendly crew"
Cons: "1. Center of seat was so thin I could feel some part of the structure pushing against my spine to the point of discomfort. 2. Temperature was quite cold for both flights (row 19 & 21). Not sure if it was my location or something else, but I fly a fair amount and the temp was below what was comfortable for me."
Pros: "boarding and crew were great"
Cons: "if I put on one more kilo I would not fit in a seat, I am 90kg"
Pros: "Debbie at Avalon was very kind and helpful!"
Cons: "Upon boarding a flight from Sydney to Avalon I was told my duffel bag was too large to carry on the plane even though I had been allowed to fly a few days prior with the same bag. I even placed my bag in the sizer at the gate but she still told me it was too large and "too heavy" although she did not weigh nor pick up my bag. About 5 minutes prior I had seen her walk a guitar that had been gate checked down to the plane. My bag was not so lucky. I arrived at Avalon and my bag didn't. My bag was going to arrive on the next plane which wasn't coming in for 3 hours. We were staying about an hour from the airport and boarding an early morning flight from Tullamarine to Los Angeles. Deliveries of missed luggage ceased 2 hours before my bag was due at the airport and didn't commence until after I was due at Tullamarine the next morning. The flight attendant who made me check my bag was on my flight and easily could have told me my bag wouldn't be making it on our flight but she didn't. She was rude, smug, and unaccomodating. The customer service representative at Avalon, Debbie, was more than helpful trying to figure out the best option for me to retrieve my luggage before my flight home to Los Angeles. She made a stressful situation a little less so. Thank you Debbie!"
Pros: "We packed very light for a ten-day trip to Australia (two small carry one, a messenger bag and a tote). Nevertheless, we ended up spending $50 each to check bags. So much for a bargain flight."
Cons: "It is one awful airline. First they fly from Avalon airport which is too far from Melbourne. Then they have a scheme to overcharge you for luggage. We went with two carry on, small suitcases and they charged us 100 Austrlian dollars. Nothing is offered on the plane. Service is bad all around. AWFUL"
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"
Pros: "Inexpensive, relatively speaking."
Cons: "The fact that they did not mention ahead of time that if I check bag at airport there was going to be a 50 dollar charge but if I had checked the night before on line only a 25 dollar charge. That does not seem fair expecially since they don't seen you email or anything telling you this in advance. The ticket agent at the airport told me."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Paying for seat and Niger luggage"
Cons: "There's no entertainment however the flight is only one hour"
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."
