OK 4.0

Pros: Return flight was not full, extra space to stretch

Cons: Had to carry carry-on suit case up and down stairs when boarded the plane. Based on the seat, half of the passengers boarded through regular ramped hall way, half boarded through back door that went downstairs to get out of the building, then up the stairs to the airplane. In Auckland airport international terminal, all passengers had to weight their carry-on and personal bags, and if it's more than seven kg, you have to check it in. This was the first time I experienced that. I bought gifts in the airport and planned to buy more. Our carry ons were a few kg over the limit, and we were sent back to the check in counter, where we just got our boarding passes and no warnings were given. We were lucky we had plenty of time during this transfer to go through all the back and forth hassles. Paying the extra $$ for the surprise check ins was not pleasant. There was another scale at the gate counter, which totally cancelled my shopping plan. To be fair, weight limit was not enforced when we boarded the plane, but you never know when that scale will be used. During the flight, I asked a flight attendant for water, and she told me to get it myself pointing the curtain half a plane away. Another new experience. This was the first time we took Jetstar, and on the way to New Zealand, we didn't feel it was too much different from the other airlines we flew before except you have to pay for everything from a cup of tea to meals and entertainment, and of course we didn't go through Auckland. The return trip really made us realize you get what you pay for.

Cons: This fight was cancelled because of an engine problem. This is understandable and we know it happens. The problem was we had to book another flight immediately with another airline in order to make the other connecting flights to complete our trip home. Jetstar only was going to refund the amount of the cost for their flight and not the difference for a new flight as well. The new flight with New Zealand air cost us double what our original flight with Jetstar cost. We incurred an additional unplanned cost of over $1000. We would like to be reimbursed for the additional costs! We feel like this is the responsibility of Jetstar to its customers.

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: They charged us $140 to check two carryon-sized bags (which we were able to fit in overhead bins on all of our other flights during the trip). VERY disappointed. It was either abandon our carryons, or pay the $140. We felt like we were held hostage by this airline's policy and will never fly with Jetstar again.

Pros: The initial price.

Cons: Jet star is a super cheap company. Everything is extra. We purchased extra baggage but didn't have a scale and we weighed over. Make sure to purchase the heavy side because it cost an arm and a leg. The lady at the desk didn't know the rules for fishing rods and almost made us pack them. Luckily we had just flown a different airline and knew we could carry them on. If you decide to change your flight it's cheaper just to purchase new tickets.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: So I showed up to find out that my ticket didn't include luggage, ok, no big deal I will pay for the bag, what 75$, no problem. oh wait a minute they wanted 300$ for the bag. the flight was less than 250$, I ended up walking over to Air NZ and got a flight with them. I will never, ever, ever, ever book with these jokers again. This should be illegal, showing up at the airport and then being told the baggage charge is over 100% of the price of the ticket. I could have bought another ticket just for my bag and put it in the seat beside me for less. How does an airline justify this???

Pros: Crew and staff were nice.

Cons: Baggage fees are super expensive if you don't prepay. Can be as much as the flight itself. Be sure to prepay for your baggage!!

Cons: Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good.

Cons: Charge for extra luggage was very high. Did not get a fare chance to book for baggage on booking and not clear that it would cosr more than a ticket to have baggage on flight. As to carry on bag, they let us take a bag on board and than took it of the aircraft saying it was too big, even thought there was lots of space for bags on cabin.

OK 5.3

Pros: The flight was ordinary, on time and okay service. There was no food or entertainment on this short flight.

Cons: We were charged an extra $140 to check our bags (2) because we had not indicated in advance that we had luggage to check. These were our only 2 bags (one each), not extra baggage. I don't think the contents were even worth $140. Will never flly JetStar again, and will tell fellow travelers to avoid this airline.

OK 5.0

Pros: Take-off and landing were smooth.

Cons: 1) Online check-in wanted our weight of our checked-in bag, and because I didn’t know it, we checked at airport but then had to pay $60 instead of the $25 or so online. 2) while they were making us pay, they didn’t mention that the flight was delayed so we got to our gate almost 2 hours too soon with no clue. 3) they wouldn’t even give a cup of water. Had to pay $4 for a bottle.

Pros: Flight was on time

Cons: we paid some NZ 200 to take luggage 38kg When I booked I did not realize that the allowance was 8kg only. The explanation for the high rate was that we should have informed Jetstar earlier. But.. how to change this when travelling ? This was the only nasty surprise during our 35 days stay in NZ Some warning on your website or lower rates are necessary regards Max

Cons: We had to be bussed from the terminal to our flight in both Auckland and Sydney which made the flight delayed and thus me having to run for my connecting flight. Naturally my bags didn't make it past Sydney. There was no in flight breakfast or complimentary snacks nor was there any TVs for the 3 hour flight. Overall, not the best experience.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in NZD.

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

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 don'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.
