This companies business model is high friction. I ended up with two tickets for my daughter on the same flights as one of their affiliates had problems with their website so it told me I wasn’t successful booking when i later found out the message was wrong. In the interim i booked the small flights on Tiger. I called both companies 4 times got the usual Asian call center responses and finally someone had the guts to tell me they would do nothing about it. Just insane and that’s what you will be if you ignore my advice. My daughter ended up with two flights she could never use and they would not do a single thing to help apart from go through their call center script to keep their jobs. You have been warned. Kayak should never refer people to gotogate.com. They offer similar customer service and would also do nothing.

They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin.

Don't know what hours they work, but the crew were clearly fatigued and couldn't be bothered. They were still polite but really just could not be a***d! Flight delayed by 20 mins and no explanation until airborne.

Onboard staff are friendly and efficient.

Jetstar are unreliable, and do their best to extort more money from customers than the seemingly low initial price. Since they don't refund anything, if you need to make a change, they charge like wounded bulls and push you onto flights with inconvenient times and connections, then lie barefacedly, telling you the better flights are full.

So I told them I was going to have luggage but they didn’t have it at the check in counter. Then they charged me $195 for 1 bag that weighed 24kg. Are you joking?? Then, the woman says we’ll we can upgrade you to an exit row seat for free. I thought that sounded awesome, extra legroom and all, so of course I accepted. When I get on the plane, my seat was in the row ahead of the exit row, with no extra legroom. The flight attendant said that the row i was in is considered an exit row as well. Here are the problems: 1 even if I didn’t tell them I was taking luggage, who the hell would pay to take one goddamned bag for $195 when the entire flight cost $150?! 2 imagine I paid for the exit row seat and they stuck me in the row ahead of the exit area so I had no extra leg room I would be extremely angry. Lastly, everything on the flight is for order, nothing is free not even water. I would never, ever, fly jetstar again even if the only alternative was to walk.

Nothing.

Flight time rescheduled meaning we had very little time for connecting flight. Then they checked our luggage in (weighed 8.5kg and only 7 allowed (charged $108). The booking in of the bags meant one of our party missed connecting flight. She arrived at gate while plane was still there and Capt said he would wait but ground staff over-ruled decision. Not happy.

I hadn’t seen the option to book my luggage so when I arrived in the airport I had to pay extra for my luggage (I assume this is more feedback for kayak then for Jetstar). The crew helped me really well to add my luggage but the extra fee was kind of a bummer.. Had a great flight, beautiful airplane and wonderful crew.

Didn’t get food or entertainment so not applicable

Don't fall for the scam where Kayak doesn't redirect you to the airline site, but rather has you book the flight within the Kayak site. They charge you a $10US surcharge on top of the flight cost. You can just as easily type in the airline site and book (for the same cost) without paying Kayak $10. It's not well disclosed and you can google all the complaints about Travelfuson (Kayak owner) online.

*
Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
