Got to airport and was told second bag was $150 and not $25. Said I should have purchased online. Explained that in one web session I was able to purchase one bag but denied option to buy second. No help or explanation. Not a fan of Jetstar or their web site.

Pros: Anything I liked has been ruined by the baggage fees. I am expecting to be reimbursed and look forward to some contact from a company representative.

Cons: The price of the flight advertised clearly stated that there were no baggage fees, it was written as £0 after the words 'baggage fees', so I was clearly surprised to be asked to pay $70 upon arrival at the airport from my baggage. Would someone like to explain this? I will be taking this up with the senior partners at your company as I feel this is complete miss advertising. The fact that you can state zero fees and then expect customers to pay extra is RIDICULOUS!!! I WILL NEVER BE USING THIS COMPANY AGAIN, EVEN IF THE PRICE IS CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN A COMPETITOR.

Cons: I am typically careful to prebook my baggage, but somehow forgot. I was then charged fees that were more than 6x what they would have been if my advance booking had gone through.

I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight.

Pros: the crew were awesome, the food okay, it's the first time I've been able to say exellent to flying with air new Zealand today, the past trips have been stinkers, there crew really bad, they put us off flying with my own country's airline so sad, the first leg was cancelled because the flight got in late, with no txt or any warning before we got to the gate, so maybe we will just try them again, because this last trip from Christchurch has eased some of the past pain

Cons: The baggage handlers destoyed my case, there the same the world over because of the furious pace, they don't care for your posesions weather there precious or not, this is the real sad point when ones flying a lot,

Okay 4.6

Cons: I am typically careful to prebook my baggage, but somehow forgot. I was then charged fees that were more than 6x what they would have been if my advance booking had gone through. Their customer support and willingness to help were horrible, and the $145 in fees put a huge damper on my trip. I will never travel with JerStar again.

Okay 4.0

Cons: We were charged over $300 (NZ) for the check in luggage!!! I told the agent this is ridiculous, our seats were only $159 (NZ). She said that I should have read the "terms & conditions." Like other reviewers, I booked this flight over 3 months ago and didn't take note of any extra charges for checked-in luggage. After reading the comments of others in the same situation, I realize that I'm not alone. I wish I had checked out these reviews of Jetstar BEFORE I booked. You would be doing your clients a big favor to include mention of this strange practice of not including luggage fees by Jetstar..and warn them that these fees could bring the total cost of their airfare to over $500 for a 100 minute domestic flight for 2 travelers. My husband said next time we're going through a travel agent. Sorry

Pros: As always Jetstar knocked it out of the park. Great crew and service. On time despite a passenger issue that was handled extremely delicately and professionally. This is a budget airline with a full service attitude. Never ever have they let me down.

Cons: Nothing. Everything was first class.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment.

Cons: Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible.

Mediocre 2.0

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.

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.

We aggregate tons 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 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.
