Mediocre 3.3

Pros: The free entertainment was nice.

Cons: We didn't book our bags when we booked our flight because we didn't know how much luggage we were going to need. At checkin at the airport, they wanted to CHARGE US $1,535 for 55kg!!!! I will NEVER use this airlines again, no matter how much cheaper they are than the others. Also, Nothing on the menu was complementary- not even the water.

Okay 5.3

Pros: The planes were clean.

Cons: When we purchasing tickets through Kayak we were not informed that we would have to pay $25 per kilogram on our checked bags. These bags are normally roller wheel carry-ons, but we were not allowed to carry them on. The cost was $640! We were told only when we got to the counter (there are no electronic tickets or electronic check in.) we received a 'discount' and had to pay $360. The jet star agent admitted that she gets multiple complaints DAILY about these fees. Jet Star scams its customers. The reviews are poor precisely because of this. Avoid this airline.

HNL
SYD
Okay 5.0

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.

Pros: The crew was very friendly & everything seemed clean.

Cons: Being able to gate check my stroller would have been really helpful. I’ve always been able to with other airlines & the website says you can so I was surprised that I couldn’t. Carrying two young kids & all the carry on luggage by myself through all the airports & international checkpoints without my stroller was *very* challenging. I would have planned differently had I known.

Excellent 8.6

Pros: The cost of the flight couldn't be beat. And aside from the last minute change in flights due to a cancelled flight the actual flights and flight crew on both flight were excellent.

Cons: Having my original direct flight cancelled and being rebooked with a stop before Sydney. Caused issues with having to go through customs then to recheck bags and transfer from an international terminal to a domestic terminal with a very minimal amount of time afforded between connections especially since the 1st leg landed late. The only compensation was a $50 discount on another flight which in all honesty is no compensation at all since I don't fly to Australia on a regular basis so not likely to be flying with Jetstar over the next 3 months. A comp meal would have been more appreciated for the disruption in my flight plans that caused me to get into my destination later then planned.

Pros: The only thing i liked wad the quick boarding and the fact that the flight was direct.

Cons: I think it's ridiculous to have a 10 hour flight and not give anything complimentary no soft drink no snacks nothing. I have been on domestic flights of two hours and gotten more. I also think its crazy to charge people $10 for entertainment like every other flight ive ever been on its included. For quite a long fight i thought it was a shame.

SYD
Okay 4.0

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.

Good 7.6

Cons: The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Good food on the plane; friendly staff.

Cons: Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food.

FAQs for booking United States to Sydney flights

How does KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool help me choose the right time to buy?
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
*
Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
