Cons: "Jam packed flight. Qantas is squeezing people in and squeezing the profits. Happening way to frequently now."

Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Boarding time"

Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."

Pros: "I slept for 12 of the 15 hours so? Food was good!"
Cons: "More leg room."

Pros: "Good seats in exit row"

Pros: "NOTHING - THE TRIP WAS A NIGHTMARE AND I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH QANTAS AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT.

I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"
Cons: "Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing.

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: "On time. Smooth ride. Shorter than expected. Great service."
Cons: "Headset broken on entertainment system. Ancient hardware. Food. Meh."

Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "I'm 6'4"... no legroom in economy"

Pros: "I liked the fact that there was a water refilling station so I could get water when I needed/wanted it. The people were friendly and there were lots of times when the lights remained off so that people could sleep. There weren't a lot of interruptions during the flight so people could rest or do what they wanted! I also like that Quantas is associated with American so I got a ton of miles!"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't stay upright so any movement made it go back, which was fine for resting but when eating or sitting up, I kept falling back. Luckily the person behind me was understanding."

Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"

Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

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: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"

Cons: "It was late"

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."

Cons: "I didn't board this flight because of the restrictions imposed by the Australian government not to let passengers transit through their country. I received no communication about this from the airline prior to my check in at the airport. They were not helpful with any options as to what I should do."

Cons: "A bigger, more comfortable aircraft"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and boarding was slow due to only using one aircraft door."

Pros: "Despite the delay, bording was quick and efficient, crew were welcoming"

Pros: "Virgin lounge staff were super friendly and helpful - getting me on an earlier flight and giving me a spare seat next to me!"
Cons: "nothing negative to say"

Cons: "flight cancelled"

Pros: "Good seat, plenty of space for my long legs."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized."

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: "Not much"
Cons: "Food VERY basic SErvice just OK"

Cons: "We still in Auckland as without any notification airline staff has cancelled our ticket and we had so much drama at the airport and we couldn’t catch the flight and we had to come back home please explain why this is happened? Contact email- priyanka27.patel@gmail.com"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful Stewards. Virgin Australia 1 free checked luggage is great."
Cons: "The queue for the loo was a bit ridiculous. Passengers were lining up in the isle besides our seats instead of waiting in thier seat for a vacancy."

Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."

Pros: "My Mum has mild dementia and was going to Sydney from Maroochydore to visit family. From check in at MCY to arrival back at MCY the staff looked after her very well. She needed assistance boarding and disembarking and they were very helpful and courteous and that's why I choose Virgin over the other airline that flies the same route."

Pros: "arrived on time crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "when boarding the plane from rear maybe passengers in the front should board first to save the mayhem."

Pros: "The lumbar support in the Virgin seat makes all the difference, plus the info re toilets, either get up now or wait till food service stops, and the instruction to put seat in upright position for eating much appreciated. I also LOVED the unexpected brilliant in-house video of psychology. Dr Andrew Ley(?) Food was great, nothing ridiculous, hot tasty and healthy. I liked there was no over packaging that took up my tray table room. Jetstar is a torture chamber with those seats that cause your back to curl over."

Pros: "-Professional, clean. Staff seemed happy to be there. -Use of both front and rear boarding allows for faster departure."
Cons: "-Need clearer instructions or a crew member to direct passengers to front or back of plane. -In flight entertainment depends on predownload of an app."

Pros: "nice aircraft. hosts were promt to address any issue."
Cons: "lack of movie options especially hindi movies"

Cons: "I don’t think it’s acceptable to not give any food on a 6 hour flight. Also to pay for food we need to wait for the cart. I sat hungry for awhile."

Pros: "The flight was good, there was enough leg room."
Cons: "My husband and I are seniors, luckily we exercise daily, because we were told to take the stairs down to the airplane and had to walk to the plane in the rain and then walk up the stairs to the plane. When we boarded we actually should have gone through the plane as our seats were closer to the front. The stewardess should have used common sense and directed everyone through the plane, there was absolutely no reason to send people through the rain."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 and a half hours. Ground staff were rude and dismissive and just huddled together to chat to each other and joke."
Cons: "Ground service - once airborne it was ok"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight Inaccurate baggage carousel information Lack of communication from Virgin"

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: "No ability to use entertainment unless app downloaded prior to flight."

Pros: "Punctuality is the most important and they achieved it."

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: "When boarding the plane I enquired about headphones. The flight attendant told me they don't usually give out headphones on my particular flight, however 15 minutes into the flight she walked past and had a pair for me to use. I was really impressed by the level of service and the fact she remembered where I was sitting. Great customer experience!"

Cons: "Breakfast "cafe style" was just soggy bread. Not edible. The interface on the inflight screen is very, very fiddly....many, many touches required to get your show as it kept defaulting to the show under the next arrow."

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: "Staff were good. Comfortable."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding."

Pros: "Plane an easy boarding process. Attendant was very helpful when processing our baggage with an interrupting phone we jad to take."

Cons: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"

Pros: "on-board entertainment"

Pros: "Movies were good but the entertainment system wasnot easy to use."
Cons: "Food was rather ordinary."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Checking in was unfriendly"

Pros: "I liked everything but my chair was very uncomfortable but otherwise everything was great the staff were really good too"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chair"

Pros: "Kept us informed of progress, snacks and drinks, upgrade to extra legroom at no charge"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy check-in, on-time arrival"
Cons: "The snacks are very boring."

Pros: "The whole service"

Pros: "It was the usual type of flight, no dramas, lovely crew, and fair price."

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."

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

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

Pros: "Crew were ok , but all looked like they had had a long day. Functional but not outstanding."
Cons: "Late departing"

Pros: "Good coffee"
Cons: "A better selection of movies"

Pros: "Punctuality"

Pros: "That l got sms messages regarding my flight details and where to collect my luggage!! Awesome"

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

Pros: "I liked the organisation"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Lateness of flight"

Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."

Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you My luggage was not automatically transferred into the connecting flight"

Pros: "Quick and easy, just as expected, staff professional and. Friendly"

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!"

Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"

Pros: "Speed of flight time and being advised of our delay"
Cons: "Cramped boarding gate and slow boarding via Tarmac. Food and inflight drinks too expensive."

Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"

Cons: "Legroom was really tight"

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: "Plane was unable to get to a gate after landing but we were kept informed."
Cons: "Paying four dollars for an orange juice."

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"

Cons: "Ordered food online. Would be better just buying when on flight. Egg sandwich both flights. No choice."

Cons: "Got to the desk at 9:03pm to check in for a international flight departing at 9:45 at an empty airport only to be turned away and told we had to check in 45min before flight (not stated in confirmation email) so 3 min late and they wouldn't let us check in, and no refunds and zero willingness to help, the ticket gate people only wanted to go home since that was the last flight of the day. So again I say VERY POOR SERVICE!! Jet Star sucks big Harry ones!!"

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: "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: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Delayed more than 1hr"

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: "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 !!"

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!"
