Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."

Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "I was not able to travel. When I reached the airport, I was told that I needed a transit visa for my 1.5 hr stopover in Auckland."
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"
Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."

Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Good entertainment, tasty food, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

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: "Flight left on time, arrived 20 mins ahead of time. And great landing"
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."

Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
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."

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"

Cons: "Hot food disgusting."
Pros: "Excellent service"

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: "Lovely friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Melbourne has got self check in and bag drop working well....Sydney, take note and passengers be ready for it. That said the ground crew are there to help, but read the signs and don't get cranky if you hey sent back to do what you're meant to. On board, the cheese and cracker snack pack I got was great, nice to see complimentary snacks and drinks being maintained. Onboatd wifi via the app worked well and was actually able to use inflight entertainment on hand held device online the Sydney to Melbourne leg"
Cons: "It was a full flight but there was too much cabin luggage. Ppl had oversized bags and too much of it. Get stricter with the measurements would be my suggestion."
Pros: "Economy X was excellent value for getting 3 seats between 2, best I've ever slept in economy. Plane was late arriving before departure so boarding was late but we did leave and arrive on time. As I had an upset stomach the crew were nice enough to give me extra crackers and it was no hassle getting me herbal tea."
Cons: "Would be nice to have onboard entertainment included"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Row 10 seats were extremely cramped. Seemed worse than usual. Was placed in middle seat and was unable to even read a magazine. Hostess saw how cramped I was and commented that I should purchase a x class fare, Perhaps virgin should ensure they supply adequate basic seating"

Pros: "Leg room was great as we had exit row"
Cons: "Body odour of one of the male cabin crew"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Larger plane."
Cons: "Stewards missed serving me twice. I pressed call button and was ignored. Kids meal and vegetarian preferences were ignored. Abu Dhabi made all Sydney passengers go through security including full cabin luggage checks twice. Abu Dhabi made me check in the duty free that I bought in Dublin. It was a connecting flight so why on earth was that something I had to do. I could not check in online, choose seats or update preferences. They sat my daughter separately and I was fobbed off in each airport and until Abu Dhabi where the cabin manager took so long I had to ask another passenger to swap. My son was sick as he walked off the ramp and I had to stand and direct people around the vomit for over 10 minutes while staff dragged their feet getting help. I will never fly Virgin with etihad again."
Pros: "Code share with Singapore Airlines made this a fantastic flight from start to finish. Other airlines have much to learn from SIngapore Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew who offered to make me a cup of tea and offered me refreshments whilst rest of passengers were asleep. Perfect and just what I needed :)"
Cons: "Tasteless unappetising vegetarian dinner, uncomfortable seats, no duty free shopping offered"

Pros: "Sufficient."
Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "The boarding had not started at the time due 22:25, I went to the rest room and on return the gate was closed for boarding. Staff advised they had commenced removing my luggage from the plane. The plane was still there but they would not let me board.! There was no call or final call or even a personal call with my name., staff said they were not required to do that. Then after pleading with no result, I requested my baggage. Staff sent me to baggage claim 2. There was no baggage, and by that time no Virgin Australia staff in the airport until 3pm the following day. I was stuck in a foreign airport, no luggage, no assistance at all from Virgin Australia to get my luggage, find accommodation, rebook a flight which resultingly cost US$900. I was distraught, the plane was still there and my luggage had not yet been removed and they refused me to board the flight!! The Virgin guy in charge was obnoxious and could not have cared less about my welfare, he personally accused me of swearing and I calmly reminded him I had not once used derogitorive language, that language was from another customer who was also refused to board. I question W that the flight was overbooked? This is not the airline Sir Richard Branson whom I have briefly met in Cairns airport promotes. Pitiful service.!!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient once we boarded"
Cons: "Seats small. One crew member had massive attitude Was getting very upset at Asians who kept trying to switch seats. She was, in my opinion, unprofessional with her comments and was taking it very personal."

Pros: "Economy X is fantastic, and really enjoy the boarding experience and the crew. left on time and arrived early. Excellent trip in that regard."
Cons: "Almost every time I travel on virgin, which is a lot. They serve a minim muesli bar. Come on Virgin what about changing that a bit. Qantas offer some really good options for not much more of a ticket price. This part of the Virgin Experience needs to change."
Pros: "The entire service is great I'd be happy to pay more for a flight with virgin then any other airline"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed without any explanation, and the staff member at the boarding desk was extremely rude when anyone dared approach her to ask what the hold-up was"
Cons: "Delayed."
Pros: "Impeccable and attentive service More spacious seats"
Cons: "Crying babies during the entire flight, not that the flight could help it but wish there were more quiet areas for passengers without families"
Cons: "my seat got changed"
Cons: "Plane interior was nauseatingly hot"
Cons: "Lack of signposting/ difficulty of obtaining information about location of terminal for departure. Our ticket had us flying Las Vegas to Los Angeles/Los Angeles to Sydney. Information about appropriate terminal/gate in LA was difficult to find and conflicting resulting in long walks and retracing steps. Would probably make me pay extra & fly Qantas again next time where the change of planes is usually streamlined."
Cons: "No ability to use entertainment unless app downloaded prior to flight."
Cons: "my flight got cancelled, and was not notified. got put on the next flight which was 6 hours later, So had to wait 6 hours to fly to melbourne."
Pros: "Virgin Australia is fine, it's eDreams travel agency who is shoddy"
Cons: "eDreams are incompetent and unethical. In my opinion they are scammers And operate an entrapment operation. Do not book through them and kayak should reconsider their association with third party booking group"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"
Pros: "The modern clean Boeing 737 aircraft. The opportunity with Premium Economy to gain extra leg room without an excessive feee, which also allowed priority boarding and baggage collection. Good efficient flight service. Good headphones."
Cons: "Our departure was delayed 75 minutes due t heavy traffic from LAX but this was almost made up during the flight. The food was very frugal and served in cardboard containers. Have had a lot better! Limited and old movies available."
Pros: "the plane was only half full so we got to take up a whole row for each of my four family members, it was such a treat. we had travelled from bali in the early hours of the morning and spent some time hanging around darwin airport so we were very tired the extra room was very much appreciated. free light meal was also a nice touch and the free entertainment app was a bonus.."
Cons: "nothing."
Pros: "I found my experience with Virgin very good. I don't fly too often. I am over 70 and found both the ground staff and on board so courteous and helpful. Would fly again with them. Take off and landings were so gentle which is something I fear, but they have inspired me to "take-off" and enjoy my life."
Cons: "I could not find anywhere on your website to either cancel the flight or re-schedule for after I'd recovered from a ruptured appendix operation. I won't therefore be using kayak again to book airfares."
Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no announcement until the last min as to why. Extremely frustrating when no information is passed on to passengers."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Vegetarian option and hot food very important especially for elderly people."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Beef dish was mainly rice with insufficient meat or gravy to flavour the rice and there were no vegetables. Entertainment selection was of little choice with documentaries that were not only unsuitable for children but in my opinion unsatisfactory for adults."
Pros: "I could stay in Sydney."
Cons: "Poor communication"
Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "Food was not very appetising"
Pros: "Fantastic service!"

The flight, well, as always, the flight was delayed for no reason, no explanations, no apologies, nothing 3. Comfort.... the Airbus A321 is a good airframe, other airlines engage seat manufactures with comfort in mind... nope.. not jetstar 4. Food. What food??? Was there any food?? nope.. there was a bag of nuts and some chips... 5. Entertainment. Well, I had fun listening to the cabin crew moan about passengers, so that was entertaining.. NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"
Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"
Cons: "1 hour later we took off. Departure gates were changed from 9 the whole way down to 1 after we all walked there! The carousel didn’t give us our luggage until 45 mins of standing there waiting after an overnight flight!! Aircraft was way too cold. And had to ask for 1 cup of water, not even offered to us."
Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"
Pros: "Getting to destination"

Pros: "Sleep well"
Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."

Cons: "No leg room... so uncomfortable trip...most of us aussies have long legs..i think planes are designed for Asians who are shorter limbed. Will not travel again on jetstar overseas"
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed earlier than time."
Cons: "Domestic flights don't offer food and entertainment which is difficult for families with children."
Pros: "The plane was not full plenty of room to move to a better seat with a window."
Cons: "No entertainment so was a bit boring plus why pay for seats when they move you to a different anyway."
Cons: "They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar"
Pros: "Although the AirPort was struggling with an electricity problem, the waiting didn't take that long. They only had 2 people working with tablets instead of the computers with scanners. So i commend them on still getting everyone done so fast! The plane ride was just basic,"
Cons: "I couldn't recline my seat, probably due to the fact I was located at the emergency exit of the wing. So sleeping was soooo uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food was horrendous and staff service was poor considering we were in business."
Pros: "Jetstar is a comparatively budget airline owned by Qantas. We were in Business class from Honolulu to Sydney and that's a well timed flight considering it takes a little over 10 hours, leaving Honolulu at 8:30am and arriving in Sydney at 3:00pm. We normally fly Qantas business for international flights but in this case it's almost double the cost. Jetstar Business doesn't have lie flat beds, it provides wide and comfortable seats and they don't recline very far, but as this particular flight is completely in daylight hours it doesn't matter too much. We will always choose this particular flight because of the combination of timing and cost, so well done Jetstar."
Pros: "Boarding was good and check in!"
Cons: "Dont have any entertainement and dont have usb to charge cellphones!"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Lack of room when seated"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Return journey of our flight was moved so disrupted our onward flights. Getting in touch with customer services was impossible. Only way is to 'live chat' then they tell you their hands are tied and to speak to the 'refunds team' who don't have a number and will 'be in touch with you'. They won't be. Then outbound flight was cancelled at the last minute. Waiting for a refund........and waiting. If it's a choice between jet star or swimming to your next destination, swim."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."
Cons: "Had a misunderstanding with a visa waiver for my girlfriend who's is English. The particular hostess that brought it to our attention was quite dull and sour with the whole situation. After about 15 minutes of basically saying she couldn't board the flight, another jet star person came over and quickly ingot Ed us that we could purchase a visa waiver on the spot for 750 baht. Problem solved and his mannerism were far more bright and cheerful. A smile goes a long way"
Pros: "it was on time..."
Cons: "charging for entertainment...no blankets for an overnight 6hour long flight... customer service is just the worse I've seen on an airline. Don't get me started on the baggage allowance surcharges... Still found one very friendly staff at the Sydney Airport though, there is still hope. Get on it Jetstar, get on it."
Pros: "Terrible seat"
Pros: "On checking in, they charged us a penalty fee, and then our flight got cancelled at the last minute without any options to get back to the city in time for work. Had to book a last minute flight with a different airline and couldn't get luggage back in time to take it along!"
Pros: "Have flown with jet star and I always have a great flight and I really enjoy how amazing the flight crew always are. Will continue to choose Jetstar for my domestic flights."
Pros: "Due to storms a 1 1/2 hour delay which is understandable until I found a friend on Qantas left on time. Delay on all Jetstar to Sydney and that afternoon but unaccountably Qantas mostly in time."
Cons: "Departing with 2 hour delay was unacceptable. Had to purchase a new ticket on a different airline."
Pros: "Left & arrived on time -AKL to SYD."
Cons: "Not as low cost as advertised. Hidden costs: pay extra to pick a seat. Any seat. No luggage allowance, must pay extra for 1st checked bag. No complimentary drinks, must pay top price for coffee, water, juice. Airline coffee in paper cup. Credit card or debit only. Toilet use might be free... did not ch check."
Cons: "I obviously purchased my tickets too fast. I missed the hidden check-in option online which is a UX recommendation I have for Jetstar, to make this more visible (particularly on international flight selection). This was my fault, but being charged $160 at the airport to check a 9kg bag in made me feel I was being ripped off and left a sour taste in my mouth towards the Jetstar brand. I'll never fly with them again. Even movies and water needed to be purchased on the flight."
Pros: "Very convenient."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"
Pros: "On time both ways"
Cons: "Paying extra for food and only use credit card not cash Paying extra for entertainment Extra for baggage & seating all these extra costs make the cheaper flight not so cheap!"
Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."
Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."
Pros: "The smooth takeoff and landing, the staff cortesies"
Cons: "The 5min wait but perfect otherwise"
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!"
