Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Cons: "It'd be better if there were a selection of direct flights to Canberra. It's quicker to fly to Bali! We spent over 8 hours including wait time to travel from Canberra to Perth - via Sydney. No bag drop in Canberra - that was a surprise."
Pros: "No power at the seats USB or otherwise"
Cons: "No comment all ok"
Pros: "Easy checkin"
Cons: "Flight was late in leaving. Sat in seat for 45 minutes without moving."
Pros: "Movie selection was good. Complimentary wine was excellent and plentiful."
Cons: "Seat room was cramped."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic boarding crew were great and the onboard crew were very nice. I enjoyed the onboard wifi and the meal."
Cons: "I didn't like that my gate and terminal numbers were changed so many times. It messed up the meeting of family. Also I really hate that there is not much leg room."
Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"
Pros: "Check in staff did the best to accommodate, however it later turned out that their knowledge of the aircraft seat plan was incorrect"
Cons: "A330 was too small for this distance. Seat pitch felt worse than newer domestic aircraft. Left the whole exit row free. I know you have to pay for this but as a gold member you might have thought they could accommodate if vacant and me being unable to fit my legs behind the chair. Only 3 working toilets for all of economy wasn’t enough either. Entertainment didn’t seem to be as good as previous American flights."
Pros: "Information on departure delays was forthcoming"
Cons: "The checkin machine kept giving me my fellow travelor boarding pass and not one for me."
Pros: "Nice staff, entertainment system quite good , wide rage of films and music."
Cons: "Range of snacks and drinks served. Only water and juice covered in the air fare."
Pros: "Crew were professional & flight ran ahead of time"
Cons: "Crowded seat & light meal wasn’t something I enjoyed"

Pros: "Lovely plane, good entertainment, great refreshments!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad!"
Cons: "Half hour delay"
Cons: "30 minutes delayed due to errors in paperwork."
Pros: "Free booze. That was literally the only redeeming quality of this 30+ hour trip."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane I flew on (Delta) was different than the company I booked with (Virgin Air). The 15 hour Delta flight was extremely uncomfortable with little leg room (I'm only 5' 3") and no outlets to charge devices. Additionally, my virgin air flight from Perth to Sydney that ran from 12 am to 6 am had no blankets or pillows. I was freezing cold. The stranger next to me saw me trying to wrap my jumper around my feet to keep them warm and offered me his wool jacket to stay warm. Wifi would have also been nice... no wifi."
Cons: "45 minutes queuing for a bag drop is not good enough - plenty of spare check-in desks just not enough staff"
Pros: "Friendly staff; good value refreshment; arrival in Perth was early."
Cons: "On this occasion, all went well. Top marks!"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and as we were overseas and did not know we had been put on a flight 4hrs earlier and as we got to the airport to later than that earlier flight had to buy new tickets with another airline. We are very disappointed as it cost up extra money."
Pros: "Fast Check in & Boading using their self check in system."
Cons: "There were only two toilets at the rear of the plane as the front ones were reserved for Business Class. This caused constant queues from the rear of the plane making it difficult for those leaving the toilet as they worked their way back through the queue. This made it very uncomfortable for the passengers in aisle seats at the rear as people had to invade their space to get past each other, particularly when the food and drinks trolley came through. Entertainment was available only on your own device by planes wifi system. Unfortunately you needed to download an app before flying, so was not able to try this out. Virgin should of communicated this requirement prior to the flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no compensation, had to find somewhere to stay, travel to and from airport for a flight the next day instead."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and pleasant throughout the flight. Service was faultless. The choice of entertainment was the best I have come across, movies, games etc. for all ages. The seating was very spacious with plenty of leg room.Thanks Virgin"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "I liked the food, and friendly staff. Pilot landed plane very well"
Cons: "We all had to use one run way due to heavy winds and waited on the small plane with nothing to do. I didn't bring my ipad as virgin has always had a screen even if it be 4 from the roof of the plane, there's music with a headset. This plane had nothing at all, I choose virgin for the reason you generally get a good plane. My suggestion is to sell of the bad planes like this one before you loose the customers that trust you."
Pros: "friendly staff smooth trip"
Cons: "it got abit stuffy the aircon wasnt great but it was a nice flight"
Pros: "Baggage price"
Pros: "Service excellence"
Pros: "Very little, again delayed in leaving resulting in arrival quite late"
Cons: "Unknowlingly dropped teeth which went under the seat and Virgin has no means of contacting airport to put mind at rest after flight and phone contact almost impossible as staff unable or unwilling to assist. No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice. Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"
Pros: "Empty, friendly staff"
Cons: "Late for my conference"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac while we were told it was delayed in Perth taking off and that it would be departing 40 min late. Then we taxied to the takeoff point and were then informed that there was a light showing in the cockpit and so we taxied back to the departure point, waited while the light was presumably repaired then eventually departed 90 minutes late arriving in Perth 100 minutes later than scheduled. Thus we would have missed our evening meal if we had travelled back to our home and instead had to obtain a meal elsewhere."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No food, small can of soft drink $3.50???(Theft). Miserable staff."
Pros: "Staff Are Lovely and so Helpfull"

Pros: "The egg and lettuce sandwich was fresh and delicious! A bigger serving would have been nice. The Cadbury biscuit chocolate was also a perfect match with a coffee."
Cons: "The inflight entrainment could have been more extensive. For example the big fat Greek wedding advertised in the inflight magazine wasn't available as a selection."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment this was especially annoying on an almost 5 hour flight. Seats were too squashy."
Pros: "Check in process and Perth terminal"
Cons: "Cabin crew professional but a little rude, no in seat entertainment."

Cons: "If the boarding time had remained unchanged and there was more legroom"
Cons: "Delayed so long."
Pros: "Nice crew inside the plane"
Cons: "It is outrageous the price for overweight cabin that was not even 10kg. Not food or entertainment included in ticket price. Even if it's a short flight, at least water to keep passengers hydrated should provide. Really uncomfortable with this situation."
Cons: "Small walkway and seats."
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable, crew was lovely"
Cons: "Tired seats should be updated."
Pros: "the crew was patient and supportive (both flight and ground crew)."
Cons: "the temperature could have been warmer."
Cons: "Easy to book and check in"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly 40 mins late"
Cons: "The coffee"
Cons: "I paid for for “sports equipment” when I purchased my ticket, however was still made to pay an extra 275$ For my bike upon arrival at the boarding gate. Not happy. I lined up for 1hr 7 minutes before I was able to check in, ridiculous - I just got to the gate as it was boarding and I Arrived 3 hours early for my international flight."
Cons: "And no announcements re the delay until the very last minute."
Cons: "I missed it"
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The rear of the plane was filled with screaming babies, loud uncontrolled children kicking the seats in front of them (mine). Equally loud mothers baby-talked continuously to their offending offspring with no effect. Cabin staff made no attempt to control the noise levels. I recognize some of these small children could have been suffering ear pain from the cabin pressure changes but trained cabin staff could have offered remedies for this. It does not explain the continuous screaming at cruising altitude. I recognize that JETSTAR is an intentionally cheap and nasty airline. I reluctantly took this flight because there was no quality service (like QANTAS) at the time I required. I accept the lack of amenities offered by REAL airlines like complimentary food, drink, entertainment and healthy legroom are the cost of cheap travel but I would have happily paid a higher price for QANTAS had there been a flight. I will not fly JETSTAR again and if no alternative exists with QANTAS, I will choose another airline in spite of my long allegiance to QANTAS CC: QANTAS"
Pros: "Modern aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason at all. Rude staff. Forced a domestic flight to land/take off at an international terminal so we had to go through customs control before taking off and after arrival. Pay some more money and fly Qantas or anything but awful Jetstar..."
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: "Surprised with a great (in air) Uluru shot, 10min before we landed"
Cons: "How close the seats are."
Cons: "Too bad you have to pay for every service...seats, TV, food."
Cons: "THE SERVICE WAS EXTREMELY POOR AND THE STAFF WERE RUDE...MY DAUGHTER WAS STANDING DUE TO A BACKACHE AND WAS TOLD BY A STEWARD THAT SHE COULD NOT STAND IN ONE SPOT BUT HAD TO WALK UP AND DOWN THE AISLE OR SIT....DISGRACEFUL ATTITUDE BORDERING ON HARRASSMENT... WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "For some reason I thought I had extra legroom but apparently not I was squished in between two people in the back of the plane the person in front of me was moving around a lot and hurting and knocking my knees"
Cons: "Eat and sleep"
Pros: "On time. Captain lovely, Crew lovely."
Cons: "My chair would recline, it kept going back up."
Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"
Pros: "Air conditioning comfortable"
Cons: "Will not travel again on jetstar as seating is very uncomfortable..not good for aussies probably suitable for asians who have shorter legs."
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."

Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and arriving good checking."
Cons: "The plane is very basic no entertainment very dull."
Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."
Pros: "On time Polite and friendly crew Way better than Qantas"
Cons: "How is it that a chair on a public train can be more comfortable than one I pay thousands to use"
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."
Pros: "The ease of online check-in and printing my baggage stickers upon arrival at the airport. The staff at the check-in desk were lovely, the staff on the plane were lovely; it was great."
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"
Pros: "Polite staff well organized"
Cons: "My flight was 45 minutes late Absolutely no room when seated"
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: "Service is very good"
Cons: "Food is inadequate for vegetarians and vegans. It is not too difficult to adjust the menus to include more interesting food variations. Virgin, Tiger domestically make a bigger effort. Jetstar cheeses have animal rennet - not necessary in this day and age. Toastie could be cheese and tomato, not only with bacon.. I complained to Jetstar head office, and the response was inadequate. Proof is if they make an effort and change. If another airlines is similar price with better food, I would automatically go with the other carrier. It's all part of hospitality. Jetstar are stubborn. Irrespective of being a low cost airlines - no excuse."
Pros: "Nothing, had I known Jetstar was such a poor quality airline I would've never booked the flight. not to be rude just being honest they didn't even offer me water. For a five hour flight that is absolutely ridiculous,"
Cons: "Zero in-flight entertainment once again for a five hour flight. I would not recommend this airline to anybody and will not be flying jetstar ever again"
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."
