Pros: I didn’t book a seatbelt beforehand so when I checked in and was assigned the front row, which is an emergency exit row, I was very pleased because it meant I could board early and had extra legroom. The check in agent was also very patient with me while I tried to sort out my bags

Good 7.5

Pros: Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward.

Cons: Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra

Cons: After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it.

OK 4.0

Cons: We waited 45 minutes for a passenger that was late.. Since when did a plain full of two hundred people wait for one idiot that couldn't make it there on time. He arrives, we begin to push back. Captain announcement, "We have been requested to go back to the gate, unsure as to why". We get back, turns out the first officer has exceeded his flying hours. I sincerely hope I never end up on a Jetstar flight ever again.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Most importantly on time and friendly staff.

Cons: For a discount airline everything was as expected. As said above, being in time and friendly employees made it an excellent flight.

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.
