Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "It’s okay"

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: "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?"
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: "cheap bare bones flights do the job for short jaunts. But their automated on line customer service is abysmal!"
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: "The assisted mobility did not work at all well, Perth it didn’t turn up, no help on or off the plane, Melbourne only took you as far as the eating area, with a lot further to go to the luggage reclaim, no one to help me with my luggage!"
Cons: "Rude ground staff."
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: "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: "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: "This was the least legroom I've ever had in a plane. The seats were so close together that they hardly reclined at all. This was very disappointing since we were on a red-eye that left at midnight. Most uncomfortable I've ever been on a plane. I was also surprised to see trash in most of the seat pockets around where I was seated."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the landing was very smooth"
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: "Good price/value for money."
Cons: "Paperwork issues caused a 1 hour delay leaving Perth, could have been handled better."
Cons: "With an aisle seat, bumped several times by crew everyone they walked up and down the aircraft"
Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "The process from baggage check-in to boarding was seamless!"
Cons: "Baggage fees were not included in the original cost."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable as the Padding wasn't attached to the seat"
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: "Inexpensive, relatively speaking."
