Cons: Flight cancelled because internet went down on site. However, Virgin Australia and Qantas airlines were able to paper book their passengers and fly to destination. Jet star couldn’t do the same. Even though the internet came back up Jetstar couldn’t complete the passenger flight check in. The Airport staff stated the internet was a risk and instead put 200 people on buses and drove us 5 hours across a 42C desert. Somehow driving across the desert was safer. The icing on the cake was the Internet stayed up for the next hour prior to our bus ride and within the flight crews crew day. So, we could all have flown home with the Jetstar flight crew who actually flew back to Sydney. Yes missed the fireworks and expensive hotel stay on New Years Eve. Finally, Jetstar rebooked is on a flight to Adelaide then to Sydney so we wouldn’t arrive until 945pm. I certainly didn’t appreciate my direct 3 hour flight being turned into a 5 hour bus ride then a 7 hour flight. Oh, please tell them thanks for the piece of cheese and two crackers, apple and apple juice for dinner. What could be done better.....eliminate Jetstar from your list of service providers.

Would pay more to fly with another 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.

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.

Cons: Horribly expensive bag check in if your bag is over the weight limit. It's $26 online at time of booking, but we found that our carry ons were barely over the size limit, in weight, and we were charged $60 PER BAG at the check in.

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Flight cancelled because internet went down on site. However, Virgin Australia and Qantas airlines were able to paper book their passengers and fly to destination. Jet star couldn’t do the same. Even though the internet came back up Jetstar couldn’t complete the passenger flight check in. The Airport staff stated the internet was a risk and instead put 200 people on buses and drove us 5 hours across a 42C desert. Somehow driving across the desert was safer. The icing on the cake was the Internet stayed up for the next hour prior to our bus ride and within the flight crews crew day. So, we could all have flown home with the Jetstar flight crew who actually flew back to Sydney. Yes missed the fireworks and expensive hotel stay on New Years Eve. Finally, Jetstar rebooked is on a flight to Adelaide then to Sydney so we wouldn’t arrive until 945pm. I certainly didn’t appreciate my direct 3 hour flight being turned into a 5 hour bus ride then a 7 hour flight. Oh, please tell them thanks for the piece of cheese and two crackers, apple and apple juice for dinner. What could be done better.....eliminate Jetstar from your list of service providers.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Departure was on time (only fifteen minutes late).

Cons: Check-in was a shambles, long lines for bag-drop, despite having booked several months in advance my partner and I could not sit together, the flight and landing was particularly rough, no crew announcements, and our arrival airport was chaotic with no signs indicating which baggage carousel to use for baggage collection. It took us nearly 3 hours to collect luggage and depart the airport.

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.
