AMAZING CREW

No music available on screen

Flight was great, and the crew was outstanding. The check in process in Brisbane was frustrating. Very few staff, long wait, and ridiculous process for the bag check. We were not the only ones frustrated. The system could definitely use improvement. We love this airline overall, and truly - this was our only complaint.

Staff are great, the transfer process from International to Domestic terminals was an utter mess! Zero communication and nobody knew what bus to take.

Pros: "All was good"
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: "The service, comfort. Flight was 20 minutes early, our luggage came out quickly. This was the first flight for us on the dream airline in business. It was fantastic."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "This is my 2nd International Flight and Qantas outrated the other airline 100x’s over. Thank you"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food isn’t tasty at all"
Cons: "We left about a half hour late, but made up some of the time in the air."
Pros: "Excellent food and service."
Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"
Cons: "Food is below average!"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Pros: "Great crew and good was good"
Cons: "A bit of turbulence during the flight"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Seat space and leg room Food and service"
Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"
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."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Pros: "on time, easy flight"
Cons: "overcharged for second bag"
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "Service and flight attendants were great"
Cons: "Breakfast the food was over heated and dry."
Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."
Pros: "Great flight. Staff very friendly. Good food too!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."
Pros: "The land crew helped get us onto an earlier flight without hesitation."
Cons: "Not very comfortable at the back but we were late to board a different flight. The original seats we chose at booking we cancelled and we were left separated at time of checkin until the crew helped sort it"
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "2 hours late leaving"
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "I'm 6'4"... no legroom in economy"
Pros: "I had a nose bleed (a side effect of treatment that I had), and although it wasnt causing me great distress, a crew member noticed it and slipped me a few extra tissues without making a fuss about it. That was very much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
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: "Nice flight. I like how much water they offered and the food was the best I have ever had on a flight."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "charging extra money for seat selection cabin service"
Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew with adequate concern for hydration of passengers. Food was very good for airline fare."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable and I was able to get much sleep on the 14 hr flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seat in coach on a long haul flight"
Cons: "Rude crew, sub par food, weird boarding process and ride boarding agent that kept my passport for an extended time, poor on flight entertainment aystwm"
Cons: "Either though I am a good frequent flyer I am try to find an alternative to qantas. Surprise there is many"
Pros: "Even though the delay caused me to miss my connecting flight to Perth Qantas booked me onto the next available one so my overall delay was reduced to one hour. Thanks for not screwing me over."
Cons: "They don’t offer refunds only vouchers. That robbery for anyone traveling internationally, they cannot use a voucher in a year"
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: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "The touch down landing was PERFECTLY smooth!! Thank you Captain!"
Pros: "Check in people were great. Staff very cheerful thanks."
Pros: "We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early which was too soon to check in. Instead of making us wait, the Jetstar attendant offered us an earlier flight. Very accommodating and thoughtful! Thanks so much Jetstar!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I luved the attendants and the service"
Cons: "THE AIRPORT IS NOT IN MELBOURNE! We had to hire an Uber for 100 dollars to drive us the hour to Melbourne. It should be clearer when booking this airport is significantly farther away. It would have been more convenient and economical to fly into melbournes international airport."
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: "Service on the plane and in the terminal was good"
Cons: "Walking on the runway to the plane was uncomfortable with wind rai and noise"
Pros: "Attention to details"
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Cons: "The flight was late with no explanation as to why. We missed our connection to the second flight. We had to change our car rental plans, and it cost us twice as much. We had to spend 6 extra hours in the Auckland airport."
Pros: "The initial posted economy fair was very attractive and the timing for our route fit well"
Cons: "Minimal bagage allowance for carry-on Big extra price for booked luggage Nothing provided (even water!) without an extra fee during the flight Minimal seat size and legroom"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight change fee within 24h of booking would have been $120 for a $49 flight. Carry-on was 9kg instead of 7kg - $60 extra fee. Never again."
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: "it was a short and very smooth flight. all the flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "the flight we originally had booked got cancelled while we were in line to check our luggage. luckily we were 3 hours early for the flight and were able to catch a sooner flight."
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: "We survived."
Cons: "Screaming children, obnoxious passengers, forced to pay $120 to check two back packs, $5 coffee, rude staff... Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "And different from other international carriers ( 20 kg instead of 23 kg). I had to pay 105 AUS for a carry-on from Sydney to Melbourne. It would have been less expensive for the carry-on to buy a seat."
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: "The fact that we tried to check our bags 10 minutes too early but the bag check desk used the ten minutes to train new staff and allowed us to shave $25 off a potential bag weight fee."
Cons: "Need to repeat several times if you change a gate number for our flight."
Cons: "Check in staff were rude."
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: "With an aisle seat, bumped several times by crew everyone they walked up and down the aircraft"
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: "Efficiency, timeliness, friendly crew"
Cons: "1. Center of seat was so thin I could feel some part of the structure pushing against my spine to the point of discomfort. 2. Temperature was quite cold for both flights (row 19 & 21). Not sure if it was my location or something else, but I fly a fair amount and the temp was below what was comfortable for me."
Pros: "Would not provide boarding for next flight causing us to be remove from flight wanted to charge for a glass of water."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Debbie at Avalon was very kind and helpful!"
Cons: "Upon boarding a flight from Sydney to Avalon I was told my duffel bag was too large to carry on the plane even though I had been allowed to fly a few days prior with the same bag. I even placed my bag in the sizer at the gate but she still told me it was too large and "too heavy" although she did not weigh nor pick up my bag. About 5 minutes prior I had seen her walk a guitar that had been gate checked down to the plane. My bag was not so lucky. I arrived at Avalon and my bag didn't. My bag was going to arrive on the next plane which wasn't coming in for 3 hours. We were staying about an hour from the airport and boarding an early morning flight from Tullamarine to Los Angeles. Deliveries of missed luggage ceased 2 hours before my bag was due at the airport and didn't commence until after I was due at Tullamarine the next morning. The flight attendant who made me check my bag was on my flight and easily could have told me my bag wouldn't be making it on our flight but she didn't. She was rude, smug, and unaccomodating. The customer service representative at Avalon, Debbie, was more than helpful trying to figure out the best option for me to retrieve my luggage before my flight home to Los Angeles. She made a stressful situation a little less so. Thank you Debbie!"
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 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: "Ticket agent was so very kind. Not to mention the staff found and retuned my phone after we landed."
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"
Pros: "Forgot to add check bag to my fair. Arrived early and was to add a check bag for $17. The service was great for the price of a short domestic flight."
Cons: "Website set for not allowing early payment of baggage fees in order to charge penalties."
Cons: "The fact that they did not mention ahead of time that if I check bag at airport there was going to be a 50 dollar charge but if I had checked the night before on line only a 25 dollar charge. That does not seem fair expecially since they don't seen you email or anything telling you this in advance. The ticket agent at the airport told me."
Cons: "Check-in was poor, the check-in clerk was rude."
Cons: "Q"
Cons: "There's no entertainment however the flight is only one hour"
Pros: "Deplane at both front and rear of plane."
Cons: "Gate was chaotic, trying to load a bus to the plane."
Cons: "The ridiculously excessive charge to check a bag at the check-in counter!!!! Outrageous behaviour by airlines to have a policy of ripping people off! Never again Jetstar!!!!"
Pros: "The leg room associated with have a seat in an emergency exit"
Cons: "They changed our gate 3 times. They changed the flight time over 5 times."
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."
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: "Didn't know about the low weight allowance for carry-on; glad you didn't weigh my bag ..."
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."
Pros: "Could get rebate by phone."
Cons: "Were slow to let us know that flight was cancelled and that it could not be rescheduled for a few days. Had to personally book on another airline--missed two earlier flights on the other airline due to Jetstar's delay."
Cons: "Check-in crew tried to earn money, tried to rip off. Didn't allow even 1kg extra on cabin bag. Just trying to make $50 for check-in bag by any means possible. Many passengers were traveling with excess luggage but lady got picky with us for last kg. Had to throw so much of our stuff, gifts/souvenirs that we bought during our sydney/melbourne vacation."
Pros: "This is an inexpensive airline where nothing is included in the price of your ticket. The cost is great."
Cons: "You pay for all the extras, luggage, seat assignments, drinks, and snacks. This was not easily identifiable on the website."
Pros: "As good as you can get, considering it was economy. I think that the 787 made it that way--wonderful plane! I love Jet Star--being able to up-grade to comfort without much problem."
Cons: "Ordering food, even though a better value than most cut-rate airlines, is a pain to remember, and was difficult for some on board. When you say there will be no other food, people don't want to believe you."
