Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked.

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.

It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."

Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."

Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."

Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "Just the check in"
Cons: "was travelling with a 1 yr old. And it was really difficult. She was a bit sick. At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."

Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"

Pros: "They gave us food vouchers and snacks for our delayed flight. The choice of movies available was great. the flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Our international flight was delayed by over 2 hours. When we called to rebook our connection flight from Brisbane to Cairns, the agent on the phone told us they were unable to help us. The online website also did not allow us to rebook. When we got to Brisbane, the only flight remaining for us was a flight 2hours later with connection. Also, the phone jack was so poor that half of the time you couldn’t hear the movie."
Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."

Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Qantas Launge"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I didn't ask for any upgrades, but the ground crew were attentive enough to offer me a direct flight back which was 30 minutes earlier. Everything was perfect. Food, seats, entertainment. Can't complain about anything."
Cons: "Not much of a biggie, but one of the middle aged lady flight attendant was a little rude. Perhaps had a bad passenger before serving me."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."
Cons: "Small plane and short flight so given a small snack but no entertainment."
Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"
Pros: "Direct flight to Brisbane. Cheerful crew doing their best with what they had to deal with."
Cons: "Late departure. Remote boarding gate to bus. Even more remote field from which plane departed. Overcrowded flight. Poor quality food. Access to Qantas Club denied (only for first class passengers)"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Pros: "I booked by flight last minute due to a family emergency overseas. As such, I arrived to the airport a little later than I should have, the passengers had boarded the flight. The ground crew couldn't have been nicer in expediting my boarding and getting me on the flight. I can't thank them enough. Top service. Thank you. The flight still arrived 25 min early after great snack and smooth flight."
Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"
Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."
Pros: "Crew were really good"
Cons: "Using an old plane for a cross country flight was ridiculous"
Pros: "The staff takes very good care of you"
Cons: "The seats are getting closer to each other and you knees touch the next seat. Also the seats are only reclining a few inches.For an international trip it's hard on your back and to be comfortable. Meals are only ok."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "The pricing seems low when purchasing the ticket, but we were charged $45/bag for our carryon bags that could easily have fit in the overhead bins (and on a separate flight with another airline that is what we did). Seems like a money grab to charge for the carryon if it weighs more than 7g or whatever small amount. Just take that cost into account when booking your flight."
Pros: "Check in people were great. Staff very cheerful thanks."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "Staff rude..was very cold and we also dindt get any glass of water never use this company anymore"
Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"
Pros: "Loved we departed on time & landed a little early"
Cons: "That we had to abort a landing & circle round to try again."
Pros: "Carryon luggage is restricted to 7 kg. Conflicts with worldcstandards and then they apply it to foreigners, but not to Kiwis! They would not let me take on my roller bag, but many locals got to! 9"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was disgusted that I had only a 6kg small carryon suitcase & a laptop in my handbag (6kg) and had my carryon taken off me & put on the next flight & not getting delivered until 10pm tonight!!! Plus had to pay $60 and buy some clothes to wear to event tonight as luggage won’t arrive in time. Will never fly Jetstar again!!!"
Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "On time, no nonsence, get the job done flight! Well done Jetstar. I must say after having just visited the US where boarding is chaotic, that I really appreciate the way boarding and disembarking on all the Australian airlines is done so well and quickly."
Cons: "Went online to check in and buy bags. Was able to buy one bag but was given message that I must finish check in and bag purchase at the airport. 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: "Staff apologized for slight delay due to weather which was no big deal. Fast boarding because they use the front door and aft door."
Cons: "I overpaid for my checked luggage and couldn't get a refund. I prepaid. You might as well tell people if you are bringing a suitcase, you have to pay. Ticket price should include one suitcase up top 15 kg- 20 kg."
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: "Great boarding process. Happy/smiling staff. Great experience overall."
Cons: "No onboard entertaibment but it is a budget airline on a short haul flight so...."
Pros: "Stormy weather made for a bumpy ride but that is no ones fault. Everything else as one would expect from a short flight"
Pros: "cost effective, good flight."
Pros: "To charge $260 for baggage for a $90 flight without choice to prepay or warning there would be any charge or such extortionist charges for a suitcase at he Counter as a student was shocking"
Cons: "To charge $260 for baggage for a $90 flight without choice to prepay or warning there would be any charge or such extortionist charges for a suitcase at he Counter as a student was shocking"
Pros: "Note too expensive"
Cons: "Jet star wanted to charge us $60 at gate for our hand bags after we checked our two carry on bags with 10kg balance. Very confusing baggage policy for people originating from USA"
Pros: "Was a short flight"
Cons: "I paid nearly $900 for a trip to Brisbane return. found that it was not what I expected. There was no lounge access. The only food available had to be paid for. They gave no water. I had to pay $4 for a cup of tea. I had to deal with immigration because the flight was international to Bali. Checkin place hard to find because of international flight for domestic destination. Signs misleading. Staff not friendly. Just want money."
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."
Cons: "There's little to like. Extremely cramped conditions. Poor food and beverage. Avoid if you possibly can."
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."
Cons: "Nil to report"
Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."
Pros: "Need to replace seat."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "There was a huge delay, all the flights I bypassed with Virgin because they didn't leave early enough left long before us. While we were waiting they didn't even post anything at the gate. Once on the plane the seats were among the tightest I have ever experienced. They even charge for coffee. I won't use them again if I have an option."
Pros: "Nothing unless being over chargered gets me points when in heaven."
Cons: "When I ordered the flight the process never gave me a chance to pay for bags like it did from Auckland to Christchurch. However, on the return flight when I went to check the bags in they said I would have to pay $210 for 2 bags. Thanks jetsatr and kayak for not having a good process to order a head of time. Won't use either again unless someone reads this and gives me a refund."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "You should be able to offer at least some chips or something small for free"
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."
Pros: "Very convenient."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The cabin, crew and aircraft met and exceeded our expectations for this flight. Everything ran smoothly and we were both very impressed with this domestic flight. Thank you Jetstar!"
Pros: "Cheap Mostly on time"
Cons: "Crew does not enforce boarding so anyone can get on at any time They'll resell your seat if you don't show up - no refunds"
Cons: "Website set for not allowing early payment of baggage fees in order to charge penalties."
Pros: "The cabin crew were most helpful in helping me get out of the plane first, and escorting me into the terminal to find the fastest way of getting to the international terminal. I am most thankful to them."
Cons: "The flight left 2+ hours late and I nearly missed my international connection in Brisbane"
Cons: "Communication of luggage restrictions was not communicated by Kayak and the customer care from Jet Star provided inaccurate communication regarding luggage restriction. We had to ship 2 of our luggage with another carrier. When we arrived at the airport, we saw others with large luggage that the customer care indicated was not allowed on the flight. Crew was not friendly - rude. A nine hour flight should provide food and drinks - complimentary. At the very least water should be provided. Boarding - they did not open the lounge area so everybody was sitting on the floor for a long period of time. Seating - crammed (narrow and we are small) Charge for entertainment - we were charged in advance for entertainment and then they provided free to all passengers - no mention of a refund for those that were incorrectly charged."
Pros: "Speed and efficiency."
Cons: "Quality of food available for purchase on board."
Pros: "Fast check in process, fast boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Jetstar long distance. The experience was much better than my low expectations. It may have been partly because the seat next to me was empty so cramped seats were not a problem. The plane was the modern Dreamliner and the entertainment system kept me entertained."
Cons: "The inbound flight was heavily delayed and we left some 5 hours after our flight was scheduled."
Cons: "Serve a hot pot pie without cutlery! Charge for coffee and pop, not even getting one free?"
Cons: "Check-in was poor, the check-in clerk was rude."
Pros: "Nothing. Thought we had booked Qantas and got Jetstar"
Cons: "That the flight ran late That the menu is disgusting. Nothing fresh. No originaliry"
Pros: "I had a whole route to myself which was nice. Plane looked new and very clean. Fire economy I thought the seats were good and had ok legroom."
Cons: "If you don't buy good you get nothing. No crackers, no peanuts . I couldn't even get water and it was a 10 hour flight. Also make sure you buy a luggage allowance. I didn't see it listed on kayaks website but maybe it was there and I missed it. They wanted to charge me 25.00 per kilo for my luggage. That would have made the coast of my luggage twice that of the flight for me."
Cons: "The made me pay $50 for my skateboard as checked luggage! Skateboarding is not a crime and I'm not a f ucking terrorist! If I was forewarned I could have pre paid and it would only have cost me $12. Either way, it's feking bullshite!"
Pros: "Quick flight. Had no check luggage which made it very easy; just on and off plane from Wellington to Christchurch in 35 minutes. For a such a short flight it was ok, would not fly with them for a longer flight."
Cons: "Fees and charges for everything."
Cons: "Didn't know about the low weight allowance for carry-on; glad you didn't weigh my bag ..."
Cons: "I booked baggage online when I booked my flight and it wasn't on my ticket causing the OUTRAGEOUS additional fee of 160.00! I feel completely scammed by your airline because I got told if I paid cash they would give me a "deal". What kind of deal is it when I already clicked a checked bag when I booked? Completely dishonest and no integrity company. As a foreign traveler, I felt completely lied to with zero options. I will NEVER book your airline again."
Cons: "I don't happy to change our flight. We have to arranged all the schedule,if jet star don't fly at that time please do not sell the tickets.(we book the flight at 21:10 changed to 18:15)"
Cons: "I will never fly Jetstar again. Was asked to pay $160.00 for each of my checked bags after there was a booking error on their end. Never again. Not worth it."
