Pros: Not applicable... generic flight with nothing special.

Cons: Extremely terrible customer service with boarding. Our combined carry-on weight exceeded the 7kg. Fair enough, we paid $60 for check-in. However, the customer service rep was awful towards us and then informed us that they would not be able to put our bag on our flight as we would cause a delay. I have a feeling this was just a decision she made to spite us as there were still ~20 minutes until departure. Well, guess what... our flight was about 15 minutes delayed. I don’t work in the aviation industry, but I assume it wouldn’t have taken 35 minutes to load. Her attitude was awful and she provided zero help when asked how when our luggage would arrive and what the process to claim it is. She simply said “I don’t know, enjoy the flight” with a smug look on her face. Never flying this airline again. Thanks to Jetstar for causing an inconvenience on our honeymoon.

Good 6.0

Pros: I liked the convenience of the airport and getting on the flight.

Cons: I didn't like that there are a lot of hidden fees with Jetstar. I didn't realize you needed to purchase bags for the flight and was unpleasantly surprised when we got to the airport and were told it was going to be $160 to get our bags on our flight and that if we would be paid for it a day before it would have been substantially cheaper. Also, nothing was provided for free on the flight-not even water or the entertainment for a 6 hour long flight.

Pros: I missed my friend's wedding ceremony thanks to this daft airline.

Cons: They couldn't be bothered putting me on another flight last night, when I was meant to fly to Melbourne. Instead, simply said I could fly 18 hours later or not. Will never fly Jetstar again. They also had the nerve to charge me for seat selection even though I had already paid for it on the flight they cancelled. Easily, Jetstar is Australia's worst airline. They think that sending a text message two hours before boarding that my flight is cancelled is enough. The rest is up to me. Wow.

Pros: The plane left on time, the boarding took 25 minutes but was on time. My seat wasn't quite working properly but it only reclines a small amount anyway so no issues. Disembarkation was orderly and quick and I was on the train to the city in minutes. From the long term carpark the bus stops right out front and likewise to pick you up. Kiosk checkin was easy and the trip on the escalator upstairs was straightforward. for 50% cheaper than Qantas and Virgin Blue i am sold.

Cons: Seems strange that your boarding pass is checked three times. Arriving there and checking in 45 minutes beforehand given the new terminal seems a bit over the top but the plane does leave on time. Meals are expensive for what they offer on board but you can always bring your own.

OK 4.3

Pros: Watching the hand luggage scale being wheeled out by a cranky employee was delightful

Cons: A woman who clearly couldn’t speak English having her weighed parcel thrown off said scale when the worker got too impatient with her. A cup of sunshine wouldn’t have gone astray

Cons: Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation.

Pros: The seats are big

Cons: You have to pay for food and drinks- nothing for free Boarding was chaos- no organization- just everyone pushing their way on. Worried about security as no one at any point checked my ID or passport Line up for baggage drop off took half an hour- they need more staff working

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: I missed my friend's wedding ceremony thanks to this daft airline.

Cons: They couldn't be bothered putting me on another flight last night, when I was meant to fly to Melbourne. Instead, simply said I could fly 18 hours later or not. Will never fly Jetstar again. They also had the nerve to charge me for seat selection even though I had already paid for it on the flight they cancelled. Easily, Jetstar is Australia's worst airline. They think that sending a text message two hours before boarding that my flight is cancelled is enough. The rest is up to me. Wow.

Cons: Was delayed by 40 minutes for weather (fine), but then they boarded and we sat in the plane while they refueled and waited...for another hour. Seats were very narrow, not clean, and charged extra for 1 checked bag.

OK 4.6

Pros: Clean and got us there pretty fast.

Cons: The crew had to move people to the back of the plane to "balance the weight". Never heard of that before. So we sat for 30 minutes while they rearranged the passengers. The flight attendant seemed almost drunk. He kept rambling on the intercom and slurring his words. Very unprofessional.

Good 7.0

Pros: The flight was on time and reasonably comfortable, partly because it was a short flight. No real problems. I was afraid that it may have been a mistake booking a cut-rate airline because of horrible experiences with such airlines in the USA (Allegiant, Spirit), but Jetstar is better than those airlines.

Cons: Luggage policy is awful. Southwest Airlines has great luggage policies, and sets the standard every other airline should try to match.

Good 7.5

Pros: The plane left on time, the boarding took 25 minutes but was on time. My seat wasn't quite working properly but it only reclines a small amount anyway so no issues. Disembarkation was orderly and quick and I was on the train to the city in minutes. From the long term carpark the bus stops right out front and likewise to pick you up. Kiosk checkin was easy and the trip on the escalator upstairs was straightforward. for 50% cheaper than Qantas and Virgin Blue i am sold.

Cons: Seems strange that your boarding pass is checked three times. Arriving there and checking in 45 minutes beforehand given the new terminal seems a bit over the top but the plane does leave on time. Meals are expensive for what they offer on board but you can always bring your own.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Oversold flight. Paid for a ticket to get home to attend mother's 70th birthday...Tiger resolved the problem by putting me on a flight more than 4 hours later. Missed my mother's birthday. My compensation - an $85 credit on an airline I will NEVER fly again. They can never compensate me for my missing family memories.

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.

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.
