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.

Mediocre 3.3

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.

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: The flight was extremely delayed and appeared to be the turn around time due to the flight arrival time and the passengers on the flight unloading. I note that my departure flight was also delayed significantly. This return flight delay caused me to miss my flight, even though I had a good buffer.

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.
