Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "Always great crew but the 737-800 is too cramped for east-west flights and hardly any leg room."
Cons: "Larger less cramped jet. Toilets at rear and everytime someone tried to move around a guy standing in aisle next to me talking to another passenger i got hit. After about the 3rd time i almost landed in the back of the seat infront of me. I had words and he moved. Couldnt put seat back as not enough room. Got off jet with neck cramped...got on jet via rear door after walk and wait about 10 minutes on hot tarnac with sun belting into back of the unfortunate rear seaters...hostess apologised but i felt sorry for any older/ sick people.

Pros: "Toilets were more spacious than normal"
Cons: "Not that much space."
Cons: "Virgin appears to have lost its way in its treatment of business class passengers from Fiji to Brisbane. Gone is the lounge to relax in prior to boarding , long ques and bottlenecks in "priority " lines whilst trying to board and then there is that other affliction that they now suffer from poor quality meals and selection of same Oh well so much for that wonderful experience of flying at the front of the aircraft"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure due to headwinds for incoming aircraft"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Meal on board was probably the worst I’ve ever had on any airline, including the very cheap Asian ones. Virgin has set a new low in customer service"

Cons: "No legroom"
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The plane was clean."
Cons: "Needed to use a desk since I was unable to check in online. Luckily I got there early enough but waited an hour and a half on line and when finally getting there learned it's because I didn't have an ETA which the website could have told me but didn't so had to keep our fingers crossed that it went through within 5 minutes. To be honest they also could have had someone talking to people on the line to see if they had all the necessary paper work horrible experience."
Pros: "attentive service and relatively comfortable, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Meal/snack/food was atrocious, was the most disappointing excuse of a snack. We had a choice of a few pieces of cut apple or an extremely thin sad looking granola bar. Expect airlines that offer “full service” to offer something better for the price, also the fact that no fixed TVs or iPads and you have to use your phone to watch movies, at least get a phone holder on the back of the seat."

Pros: "The staff and service was nice and friendly. The plane took off right on time and I liked that it even arrived early. The price was good too."

Pros: "The flight was good. On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bag drop check in was terrible. So slow. Boarding wasn't efficient"
Pros: "Great boarding and efficient flight"
Cons: "The crew - unsmiling, unfriendly and seemed to hate their jobs. Food - meusli bar !"
Cons: "Virgin was responsible for our transfer and did very little to help their international travelers"
Pros: "I paid extra for the new Economy plus seats. Completely worth it and not too expensive. I always fly Virgin Australia to Los Angeles"
Cons: "Airplane food is never great but it's the best you can get."
Pros: "Service was great, aircraft okay"
Cons: "Would have liked a charging point on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food was a couple of cookies....There was no entertainment."

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: "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!"
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"
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: "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: "Quick service."
Cons: "There was confusion about I checking a bag and I didn't book the ticket with a checked bag so when I got to the airport it cost me $50 to check my bag. I think that it was an excessive price"
Pros: "At Cairns they placed me on an earlier flight Thank you"
Cons: "As above"
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"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Jetstar long distance. The experience was much better than my low expectations. It may have been partly because the seat next to me was empty so cramped seats were not a problem. The plane was the modern Dreamliner and the entertainment system kept me entertained."
Cons: "The inbound flight was heavily delayed and we left some 5 hours after our flight was scheduled."
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: "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: "Nice new plane. On time. Infant travel cot can be checked for free."
Cons: "Turned up at the airport and they wanted $50 for the first 15 kg then $15 PER KILO for checked baggage. I had tried prepaying on my mobile phone and they wanted $50 plus a $25 service fee. Turns out if you use a laptop there is no additional $25 fee. Don't wait until you get to the airport to pay for checked baggage! Only free beverage is water. Soft drinks are charged for. No free pretzels or anything."
Pros: "The jetstar staff at check in counter were very helpful"
Pros: "The airplane was very nice. Thank God we made it to Our final destination safely"
Cons: "They don't even offer you a glass of water Flight attendants were kind of rude We had to deplane by stairs, it was raining Got sick because of that After being confined in the plane for 9.35 hrs got out in the windy/rainy condition. They Could not afford to pay to get to a gate"
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!"
Pros: "Competitive and cheap prices"
Cons: "Poor service - white wine was served warm and they refused to exchange for another. Poor hygiene - there was crumbs all over the floor and on my seat, and used gum stuck to the seat in front of me."
Cons: "I don't happy to change our flight. We have to arranged all the schedule,if jet star don't fly at that time please do not sell the tickets.(we book the flight at 21:10 changed to 18:15)"
Cons: "i was offered a refund, but I'm still waiting for this to be confirmed."
