Pros: "Crew always competent & professional"

Cons: "Special Assistance not provided inspite of it being booked with ticket."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."

Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"

Pros: "All of the staff are friendly and helpful and is a good flight."
Cons: "It was raining and I don't like to fly in the rain especially landing."

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"

Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."

Pros: "Qantas kept us informed about a delay and were so reliable on making sure everyone was comfortable with the day."
Cons: "Our entertainment console wasn’t working properly. We didn’t have access to our in flight maps or the majority of entertainment options. This hasn’t happened before but it di but it did mean that it was a long flight made longer."

Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system was ancient, with small screens, loose sockets for headphones, flaky performance. Only the content was decent (not good). They announce boarding sequence and then fail to honor/enforce it, allowing a free for all."

Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "The check in process was seamless - we did not queue at all The crew were great and gave us a bottle of bubbles when we landed The food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "The entertainment on board was really disappointing"

Pros: "Was impressed with all aspects of Air Calin. Great staff - nice plan - lovely service including food."

Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"

Pros: "The crew were friendly and supportive. The premium economy meal was excellent."
Cons: "The seats were small so the overweight person next to me used up a lot of my personal space."

Cons: "It was late"

Cons: "Hot food disgusting."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"

Pros: "The crew were really very good kind and could not have done more. I have crew members who are patients of mine and I know the stress they undergo and I wa actually very proud of the crew in my section of the aircraft"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"

Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."

Pros: "Another successful mission with QantasI like the overall experience and the way that Qantas recognise my platinum status it's always a great pleasure to fly to mystically and internationally with Qantas"
Cons: "I think the stream the in-flight entertainment is a bit of a cheat and then I should go back to providing entertainment those messages without a laptop or iPad"

Cons: "No veg option No screen for movies."

Pros: "Nothing! !"
Cons: "Flights delayed for 4 hours. .service poor. .after 14 hours another 25 min waiting on runway. .and 35 min waiting for luggage. Qantas-NEVER AGAIN! !"

Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "No super comfortable seat but yes great crew."

Pros: "Good value flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then put into stack in Sydney - but given the Sydney weather over the weekend maybe that was to be expected. Flight crew could be more aware of annoying teenagers and others being disruptive in the cabin and painful for other passengers."

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. Brady Palmerino 858-386-3339"

Pros: "Crew was great - boarding was efficient and on time"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable/ergonomic, all movies, tv, games and everything is for purchase - it would be nice to have some free options. Also - no complimentary beverage/snack service."

Cons: "The attitude of the crew towards passengers with children. They made us wake up our sleeping child because she was on a blow up cushion that obstructed her leg space. Even though we explained it could be deflated in a single second and was not causing harm to anyone else they still made us move it. Also, they gave us a guilt trip for changing a peepee diaper in our seat (careful not to touch any seats) and wouldn't take the trash. As any parents knows, changing a diaper in an airline bathroom is one of the most unsanitary and awful things you can do with your young child due to the extreme lack of space. Airlines in general should make a "family bathroom" with more space for parents to change their kids."

Pros: "No intermediate stop"
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable, very noisy toilette"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Got no messages from anyone"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cheaper add booked luggage costs."

Pros: "Nothing, was not booked on flight I "purchased", kayak search redirects to scam website"
Cons: "Justfly.com is a scam website, don't use them!"

Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I just don't like Jetstar. An airline of pick pockets, and crooks. You're best to only bring your toothbrush, and nothing else."

Pros: "It was clean and spacious."
Cons: "I wish entertainment and/or snacks were provided."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "We missed our international connection after being forced to check a bag."

Pros: "Punctuality"

Cons: "The personnal was rude and unhelpful, the second flight was late and nobody told us why or apologized. I dont think that you should charger food in ten hours flights and special not that expensive for such awful food."

Pros: "Price. Ease of boarding. Crew."
Cons: "Fees for everything. Even water."

Pros: "The base price is very low. We were slightly over ~1kg our allotted 7kg/passenger and they let us go."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight whatsoever. The space in the seat is a bit tight, doesn't recline very much either."

Pros: "Sunshine Coast airport is so small getting through security is a five minute process."

Pros: "THE PRICE OF THE TICKET IS WHY YOU WOULD FLY JETSTAR. OTHERWISE, YOU WOULDN'T FLY JETSTAR."
Cons: "The food menu is very limited to bready, carbohydrates - not a single salad or actual meal is available. Everything is tv dinner style. The entertainment only changes every few months so if you are frequent flyer with JetStar, you'll get bored of the movie and TV selection within three flights. The customer service varies wildly. I had one flight where a steward spilled a cup (literally) of water on me and handed me two napkins, and another flight where they moved me to a more comfortable seat upon request. Also, the JetStar membership is a JOKE! I paid for a year membership with the offer of deals and lower, membership prices. HA! I have yet to see an international offer, and they only reduce prices of say entertainment by $1. Also, they don't have an actual MILES program. If I was flying with ANY other company, I would have received some type of positive upgrade for all my flying with them. I must have flown 100,000 miles with them this year already."

Cons: "I have put past a lot of things that jetstar airlines have done in the past, including the 140$ that I had to pay to change and pay to rebook or pay to cancel and there were no given supports with credits, so I ended up abandoning the flight altogether losing the money. I flew jetstar from Sydney to Sunshine Coast with my backpack a personal bag and a tote bag. I had previously paid 20$ for checked luggage. Making my total for the flight 80$ no one asked to weigh my bags or questioned them. Making the 20$ extra just disappear? . They did make me throw out my beverage upon entered the aircraft that I just purchased, I would assume because it’s a ‘safety issue’ even though the airline does not give complimentary anything so I’m assuming it’s mostly competition of sales.In Gold Coast I checked my bags through security got to the gate and they had a trolly weighing bags. They asked me if I was traveling with someone else which I replied with a no. They then weighed my backpack saying it was 7kgs and I had to come with them to the front. So my backpack personal item and tote bag was too much all of a sudden. I offered to give up the tote bag which then turned the situation into that all of my bags were over weight and it was going to charge me 60$ for my 7kg backpack. I said 60$ was expensive and I paid 20$ last time for my checked bags on the way here that I hadn’t used and he said too bad. Meanwhile the majority of people boarding past me had had rolling luggage and an additional bag or a personal item and when I said something to the employee he told me I’m wrong and they were all weighed and it’s 60$ for my belongings to be checked and put under the plane? Because 60$ somehow made the weight of the flight more light? Horrible customer service. I didn’t get I’m sorry any compassion I got what are you paying with? I paid 60$ or miss my flight. 60$ could have given me one more flight. Also to mention the flight was not even completely full so what did that 60$ accomplish? Awful awful awful . So in the future I suppose I’m just going to donate 20$ regardless if I have checked luggage or not because paying for everything is the only consistent thing on jetstar. On the positive side they let me jump the line after I paid 60$ for my “overweight luggage” and I got to my assigned seat more quickly."

Pros: "Staff and crew"
Cons: "Very strict baggage policy you have to be exactly same weight or less with baggage"

Pros: "Nothing in the service that would warrant any positive discussion"
Cons: "Upon attempting to checkin online, Jetstar indicated that checkin had to be undertaken at the Queenstown airport. No prompt was provided to indicate that baggage registration and payment would have to be handled via the general website, in spite of being denied the ability to checkin online. To our surprise, we faced a $75/bag checkin fee at the airport, being told registration of baggage at the airport would face a premium fee. Unfair or what...?"

Pros: "The advertised price before finding out about the Bundles."
Cons: "All the ridiculous add-ones for seat preference, food, entertainment, extra leg room, etc. Very misleading!! Difficulty with online check-in and trying to determine baggage needs before actually getting to the airport and then having to pay a ridiculously higher amount. Would have been better to pay the extra and fly on an airlines that puts customer service first."

Pros: "They were super nice and did not charge me for boiling water and tap water as I made my own meal on the plane. They gave me an extra-large cup which made it easy for me to make my freeze-dried meal!"
Cons: "Reading the reviews - I also got the impression from Kayak that there would be 1 free checked bag. It took 2 hours for me to get my bags upon arrival, so I was almost unable to re-check my bags when the layover was almost 3 hours. I had to take a cab from the international airport to the domestic one, rushing to make the bag check-in deadline, and then get there to see the flight delayed 30 mins. The delay is not the problem, stuff happens, it was the lack of communication, from start to finish that was frustrating. Other airlines have texting and email services, and offer to check bags right outside of customs. I was glad to have brought my own food - $10 for 5 tablespoons of rice? $7.50 for instant noodles? at least the portion size looked OK. The flight staff were very nice, but I felt like the girl at the bar only drinking water."

Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "That the flight was on time and the baggage arrived quickly."
Cons: "Bag check was difficult. I neglected to purchase my one bag’s space in the hold either because I forgot or neglected this task. Nevertheless, when I tried to purchase the checked bag, I was misdirected twice and separate scales were 7kilos apart! Thus my “budget airfare” from Sydney to Coolangatta was $94, my checked bag in the other direction cost $124! This was the only hiccup, but the bag check process was unnecessarily expensive, unwieldy, and confusing."

Pros: "The crew including the check in and ground crew were excellent, very friendly and patient."

Cons: "The carry-on baggage policy is ridiculously unfair and they don't tell you about the 7kg carry-on restriction at the desk but charge you 50 dollars at the gate when you don't have any other options but pay before you miss the flight"

Cons: "Kayak did not disclosed the price quoted did not include fees for luggage. I would never buy a ticket thru Kayak again."

Cons: "Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport."

Cons: "Departing with 2 hour delay was unacceptable. Had to purchase a new ticket on a different airline."

Cons: "Website was not clear on baggage policy during booking and upon checking in, we were slammed with baggage fees of $160.00 NZ for each bag. Not happy."

Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "the extra service fees for luggage, and they didnt actually check at the gate"

Pros: "Frustrated by how late I was allowed to Check-in, then had to rush to the plane. Classic problem, but, why you don't pay for a budget flight."

Pros: "I was charged $300 and forced to check my bag (weighing less than 50 pounds) and my carry on. These charges were absolutely not predictable."

Cons: "On top of ticket price, Jetstar charged me over $300USD to check one bag from Phuket to Cairns."

Pros: "Nothing - terrible service."
Cons: "All they cared about was charging us for our carryon. They lost my luggage and I missed my meetings in Sydney. Nobody to complain to they have no staff in Sydney. They also tagged my luggage to the wrong passenger and it was an ordeal to get it back once they found it. Talk about a security breach !! Never fly them again !!! Will be sending info to media!! Paid $320 for extra baggage fees coming from an Air Canada business flight ticket with carry-on - they didn't care!! Kelta at ck in only cared about charging us and when I told her to put the bags in my name she said don't tell me how to do my job I know - and then bag is in another person's name and he had to leave asap in Sydney and it was an ordeal to get report done!! They charge for coffee on board and flight attendants were also rude!! Where is the customer service? Terrible !!"

Cons: "Flight was changed to earlier flight - was guaranteed a window and did not get a window; had to change from the domestic to international terminal and then had to go through CUSTOMS for this domestic flight because it came out of international terminal adding time to my travel. Almost lost my luggage. Carousel took forever to retrieve luggage. Flight left 50 minutes late. Reduced airport staff = 80 people not checked in by 10 minutes till boarding. Everyone was going through security when the flight was calling "final boarding". Poor entertainment and food selection. A lot of Asians were on this flight and no staff member spoke Asian for those who didn't speak English - which is strange for an Asia predominant airline. This led to some confusion between the crew and passengers delaying departure due to head count issues."

Cons: "I highly recommend to never fly Jetstar. I am a frequent flyer and this was my first time using Jetstar. With extremely limited access to WiFi while traveling in New Zealand I was unable to check-in my bag prior to arriving at the airport which lead to a bag fee of $360!! Never in my life have I had a bag fee this high. It would have been cheaper for me to outright book a completely different flight at that moment of finding out what they were charging me - on a competitor airline for the same departure time that very day!"

Cons: "We booked through Kayak and weren't told that when you book a flight with Jetstar, you get NO BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE. ZERO, ZIP, NIL. We didn't know this and assumed like other Australian and New Zealand carriers, we would each get one free bag, so I went online and paid $25 for a third bag. When we checked in for a domestic flight, we were told that we would have to pay $400 to send our luggage with us. THAT WAS MORE THAN WE PAID FOR OUR SEATS! We were also told that had we paid for our luggage ahead of time, it would have only been $60. Be very careful if you fly this airline. Make sure you know what is and what is not included with your ticket, especially if you use a third party to purchase your tickets. PS - All drinks (including coffee, tea, soda, etc.)are extra. Frankly, I'm surprised they don't charge for using the toilet in flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that the website did not make it clear that I had to put in how many kilos my luggage was. There fore I was charged $50!"

Pros: "Pilot did an outstanding job while landing in Sydney! Smoothest landing during my recent 11 leg journey...5 of which were jet star."
Cons: "I was charged $50 and made to check a bag that I had previously carried on during 5 other flights."

Pros: "Flight was on time The airplane was clean"
Cons: "This is the cheapest company I ever used. During the booking process they did not mention that they have a 7 kg limit on carry on items. This is not the case when you attempt to book a flight within Australia; clearly deceiving foreign travelers. In any case, I paid extra $24 to check in a (20 kg) bag. When arrived to the airport I voluntarily weighted the hand bag which was 8.2 kg. I explained that I am an international traveler with no mean of exactly weighing the bag. They insisted on checking in the extra bag and charged me additional $50 to do so. With those hidden fees, I ended up paying more for the flight than the competitors. During the flight, they offer nothing for free (not even water or coffee)."

Pros: "i would never travel to jetstar again they discriminate people we are indian we had some carry on bags they charge us extra they didm check any body els"

Cons: "The listed price did not include luggage and they gouged me for almost additional $300 USD to fly from Cairnes to Sydney. Yes my two bags were heavier but I was not charged additional fees on either Hong Kong Airlines, Quantas or JAL."

Cons: "First of all, while booking my flight online, the site canceled my transaction 3 times because the price had risen up while I was completing the forms. I ended up paying more than the initial price. Also, the site never asked me about my bagages and when I tried adding one, it wouldn't let me. Therefore, I figured that it wasn't required to mark how many bags I was checking in and that it will be done once I get to the airport. Biggest mistake! Not only did we need to pay 50$ for a bag of 15kg and 15$ for every kg over this limit, but the employee at the check-in counter was the ruddest person and was treating us as if we we're stupid. Indeed, I tried explaining to her the situation and how the website never asked for our bags but she kept saying how it was all our fault and didn't sympathize one bit. Worst service I've ever received in an airport."

Cons: "Delays happened the entire trip. I had my bag weighed on the way to Australia and they said it was fine to carry on. Then, on my way back they tried to make me pay for it to be checked. The bag was lighter. They also moved me because they had double booked my seat to a middle seat. Overall, very terrible experience. My first flight was delayed to Sydney and I missed my flight to Brisbane. They got me a hotel in Sydney for the night but the didn't tell us where to go to get the voucher. So after 10 hours of flying after 4 hours of delays, I was wondering around helplessly to try to find their office. They told us to go to the Jetstar counter, but no one was there. I got help from another airline as to where to find the office. By the way, their office is marked with a very little sign that is incredibly hard to find. Crazy experience, and I travel quite often."

Pros: "Plane was nice and comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was second leg of an international flight but that wasn't indicated anywhere nor were there any alerts. So, nearly missed the flight even while arriving in plenty of time for boarding, we had to pay another $8 for the shuttle to the international terminal even though it was a domestic flight. Staff was not understanding of why that might be confusing, and kept referencing the amount of numbers in the flight number that should have magically indicated to us that it was an international flight."

Pros: "It was cheap, that's about all I can say about the flight. Wasn't crowded either which was nice"
Cons: "Jetstar tried to literally charge me over $1,500 with a straight face. Every single other airline in the world charges a flat fee for this. Jetstar has a rate of $25 per kilo. At 39 kilos each way, that is $1,950 round trip. Once in the air a majority of the flight crew went to sleep. I was sitting in the back and wondered why there were so many empty seats. No not seats, but entire rows. The crew proceeded to all take an entire row and just passed out for the last 5 hours or so of the flight."
