Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Quality of snacks Quality of in flight entertainment still very poor"
Pros: "Plane seats are ok - a bit annoying that there is no on board entertainment and you have to use your own phone etc. The butter chicken was edible."

Thank you, Dean Cortez email@example.com 619-246-4647"

WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Flight was easy and quick two hours"
Cons: "Everything went perfect"
Pros: "It was a short flight."

Cons: "Hardly any staff, we had to load & check in our own bags. The mechanical baggage belt was initially not working so the lines of people waiting grew. There was no-one to explain what we had to do so we only printed our boarding passes, and didnt realise we had to ALSO print baggage labels, so we consequently lost our place in the queue. NOT HAPPY!"
Pros: "Need to replace seat."
Pros: "the price was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "we had to pay to check bags, change flights, etc. also, no free little snacks or movies, radio, etc."

Cons: "Nothing. I've previously had very average experiences with Jetstar which made me uncertain about booking these flights but I was completely overthrown by the service turn-around. I'm now a Jetstar advocate."
Cons: "Beer was warm. At that price for average beer it would be nice to have it cold!"
Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"
Cons: "Flight cancelled Had to recheck in. Boarding gate changed 3 times"
Cons: "delayed flight and having to take time to get every piece of carry on luggage weighed - having to move 1 kg from one suitcase to another when we were traveling together fro goodness sake"

Pros: "Movies... At least they provided headphones.... For a lack of everything else provided..."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed not to have a blanket provided without charge, or a small meal or even a tea beverage without a costly purchase! I paid for a flight from Australia to Honolulu, a minimum of almost 10 hours, and no meal, no beverages, no blanket for an overnight flight without a costly additional purchase. I have tellethto health issues as it is, nevermind no half warm sleep or supplementary beverages or meal. I felt very used and taken advantage of. Substantially disappointed with the way we were treated for such a long overnight flight."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at short notice without explanation"
