Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the plane was nice."
Cons: "I bought a bottle of water to take on the plane and had to get rid of it as there was a baggage check for liquids after security and before boarding. Every thing on board cost, even a can of pop but we were not allowed to bring any drinks. Seems like a way of gouging customers. Also no free entertainment option."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."
Cons: "Staff rude..was very cold and we also dindt get any glass of water never use this company anymore"
Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"
Pros: "Loved we departed on time & landed a little early"
Cons: "That we had to abort a landing & circle round to try again."
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Cons: "Charged $310 for one suitcase under 30 kg because not prepaid. No inflight entertainment system."
Cons: "Was disgusted that I had only a 6kg small carryon suitcase & a laptop in my handbag (6kg) and had my carryon taken off me & put on the next flight & not getting delivered until 10pm tonight!!! Plus had to pay $60 and buy some clothes to wear to event tonight as luggage won’t arrive in time. Will never fly Jetstar again!!!"
Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Pros: "Staff was courteous On time"
Cons: "We had to pay to check in our luggage Seats were uncomfortable Nothing to drink for free, coffee or water would Ben appreciated No entertainment"
Pros: "They gave me some biscuits"
Cons: "Delayed nearly 2 hours"
Cons: "Unexpected fees"
Cons: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."
Pros: "Stormy weather made for a bumpy ride but that is no ones fault. Everything else as one would expect from a short flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "40 min delayed!!"
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."
Cons: "There's little to like. Extremely cramped conditions. Poor food and beverage. Avoid if you possibly can."
Cons: "Nil to report"
Pros: "Clean planes."
Cons: "Hidden last minute weight fees on carry ons. In our case an extra $360. This is apparently a common complaint. Terrible scam."
Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Need to replace seat."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "There was a huge delay, all the flights I bypassed with Virgin because they didn't leave early enough left long before us. While we were waiting they didn't even post anything at the gate. Once on the plane the seats were among the tightest I have ever experienced. They even charge for coffee. I won't use them again if I have an option."
Pros: "Boarded on time"
Cons: "15 mins late departing"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled due to Cyclone Debbie. We requested a refund as we had already made other travel arrangements but were refused and told that we will receive a voucher. Since we live in the US a voucher is worthless to us. The right thing for JetStar to do is refund our airfare and luggage fees."
Cons: "Was charged over $400 because I didn't know I had to add how many bags and how much weight when booking ahead of time, and had two large bags. Never use!!!"
Pros: "Although a budget carrier, much better experience than US carriers, even supposed full service carriers. Would definitely fly them again."
Cons: "Very picky on baggage weight, even carry on items."
Pros: "So many problems with them trying to add baggage fees at gate that there is nothing that can get me to fly Jet Star again. We were under the 7kg checkin bag requirements so they started weighing our personal items to put us over so they could charge another $50. The line got slowed to the point they had to stop this scam."
Pros: "I have used this airline several times for short (2h30) and long (8h) haul flights and they are just aweful. Only certain people get food (even on the long haul), horrible staff that look down on you and ignore you, uncomfortable seats that make you feel like a sardine. Just aweful"
Pros: "Won't book with jet star again"
Pros: "I have taken 2 Jetstar flights this week and both departed over an hour late ! Frustrating!"
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: "Speed and efficiency."
Cons: "Quality of food available for purchase on board."
Pros: "Fast check in process, fast boarding"
Cons: "Overpriced excess of luggage. Classic trick only used by the cheapest airline companies."
Cons: "Serve a hot pot pie without cutlery! Charge for coffee and pop, not even getting one free?"
Pros: "They charged $94 for a bag at the airport. It is NOT CLEAR on Kayak that you have to book baggage ahead or face STEEP charges."
Pros: "Nothing. Thought we had booked Qantas and got Jetstar"
Cons: "That the flight ran late That the menu is disgusting. Nothing fresh. No originaliry"
Cons: "2h delay"
Pros: "The jetstar staff at check in counter were very helpful"
Pros: "Nice newish 787"
Cons: "We couldn't bring our own water on board, but that might be Aussie policy and not just jetstar. As far as luggage, just know you have to prebook how many kg of luggage you are bringing ahead of time or pay big bucks at the airport, luckily we knew"
Cons: "The made me pay $50 for my skateboard as checked luggage! Skateboarding is not a crime and I'm not a f ucking terrorist! If I was forewarned I could have pre paid and it would only have cost me $12. Either way, it's feking bullshite!"
