We arrived at airport to find out we were ticketed on flight leaving 10:55PM rather than 11:35AM, and new flight routed through Sydney rather than non-stop.

Pros: "No food or entertainment, so we just gave an average rating. Should have an N/A option. Everything else from check-in to deplaning was very good."
Cons: "We were surprised by the baggage charge when we checked in. However, we may have missed that when we purchased our tickets online."
Cons: "My main complaint is what others describe, the luggage charge. However, for me it was 100 dollars per bag or an additional 200 dollars. By that time I could not change flights as was traveling with others. What was going to be a modest flight charge turned out to be a hefty one. The flight otherwise was good to excellent."
Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"
Cons: "A metal bar was poking into my back from the seat (17D) - as if the padding had worn away and the seat frame exposed. Tray table had not been cleaned and was covered in crumbs"
Pros: "cheap bare bones flights do the job for short jaunts. But their automated on line customer service is abysmal!"

Cons: "Appalling service got a text about 20 hours before departure cancelling the flight. Alternatives totally unsuitable. 1am or 5 am when I had a daytime flight"
Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."
Pros: "Nothing it was horrendous"
Cons: "My seat was broken with a big metal bar digging into my back all the flight and got given the thinnest blanket to try had and stop the problem total and utter was of time"
Pros: "Getting off at the other end (eventually)"
Cons: "Where do we start....didn't realise you have to pay extra for a bag when traveling overseas so spent just on $300 before even getting the boarding pass. One hour late leaving Perth, no apology or explanation provided. They wouldn't take exact money for a Solo, only credit card. Knees planted uncomfortably in the seat in front for the entire trip. Didn't hand out immigration cards claiming they'd run out.."
Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."
Cons: "Since more chairs have been added there is no leg room! My husband had difficulty getting in and out. We will not be flying jet star for longer flights"
Pros: "Hot chocolate was good, and toasty was large. Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner"
Pros: "Very little. The seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING, including entertainment. You may think you have found a great deal, but look at the extras before you purchase. This is the mistake I made. I didn't have a meal because their website was not working for me to pre-order. When I mentioned this to them through chat, they said they have food available for purchase in flight. When I was ready to purchase (the second time they were walking the isles) they said they have no food left and offered me cheese and crackers, to which they then asked me to pay for! So on our 11 hour flight we had 4 crackers and some cheese. Before boarding the plane we were told we were only allowed 1 carry-on and 1 personal item. We left some luggage behind thinking we would not be allowed to take it on our flight. Upon boarding, we saw that the row behind us had large amounts of carry-on forcing our entire row to stow out luggage 4 rows away. I'll never be flying with jet star again."
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Cons: "They don't tell you at the desk that they'd charge 50 dollars at the gate if you bring more than total 7 kilo of all your luggages"
Pros: "Everything except bag claim process"
Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"
Pros: "Swift check in and boarding and exit."
Cons: "Terrible seating. I'm 6ft 1 and I felt cramped and couldn't get comfortable. I was constantly kicking the person in front of me in the back and under the seat."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "NEW check in procedure with lack of instruction Seat spacing and lack of room in cattle class, first seat I have ever had that it's so called upright position actually bent you uncomfortably forward during take off and landing and I used to work in the industry"
Pros: "Good price/value for money."
Cons: "Paperwork issues caused a 1 hour delay leaving Perth, could have been handled better."
Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"
Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"
Pros: "That the flight is over"
Cons: "Terrible service, luggage scam,discourteous service unhelpful boarding personnel,check in personnel arrived twenty minutes late"
Pros: "Service is very good"
Cons: "Food is inadequate for vegetarians and vegans. It is not too difficult to adjust the menus to include more interesting food variations. Virgin, Tiger domestically make a bigger effort. Jetstar cheeses have animal rennet - not necessary in this day and age. Toastie could be cheese and tomato, not only with bacon.. I complained to Jetstar head office, and the response was inadequate. Proof is if they make an effort and change. If another airlines is similar price with better food, I would automatically go with the other carrier. It's all part of hospitality. Jetstar are stubborn. Irrespective of being a low cost airlines - no excuse."
Pros: "Had to pay $160 dollars for baggage. Did not specify that baggage was not included. Staff at the airport told us that how jetstar makes their money. I feel like if somebody stole money from me. Will try to fight to take that payment of my credit card. It is not written anything that your baggage is not included."
Pros: "Their website and web check in is too basic!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats,timeliness"
Cons: "Very upset about the over $400.00 charge for our two carry on luggage that were both only a little over 20 k. That was more than what we paid for the flight. I feel that Jet Star gouged us! We've never paid that much for chacked luggage! Never offered water, oh you could pay $4.00 for a cup of cola."
Cons: "Not understanding that online baggage allowance was for checked bags; then having to pay, at the counter, $50/bag and $15 for extra weight over 15 kg. was unreasonably exorbitant. Especially, as there was a notice stating the extra weight was for anything over 20 kgs."
Cons: "it is pitiful practice to charge baggage fees that are almost as much as the airfare. not an honourable practice. will take my money elsewhere."
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable as the Padding wasn't attached to the seat"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Easy boarding from front and rear of plane."
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage, very high $$."
Pros: "The planes were comfortable and boarding was easy. Staff was very gracious. I only gave the food and entertainment 1 star because there really wasn't any. But we weren't looking for any for the price we paid."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, no frills but nice and relaxed."
Cons: "Long walk to the boarding gate in Melbourne, poor design by Melbourne airport having check-in so far from the departure gates without travellators. Could be an issue for people that are less mobile."
Pros: "Quick travel."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and hot."
