Airline reviews

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."

Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."

Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."

Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"

Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"

Cons: "Less gate changes"

Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."

Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"

Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"

Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."

Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"

Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."

Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Pros: "I liked the empty seat beside me."
Cons: "No complaints, really. Wish I hadn't slept through the midnight snack. But I was able to sleep! That's a hit!"

Pros: "Great staff and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Flight was almost 1 hr behind."

Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."

Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."

Pros: "The food and the crew were very good!"
Cons: "The seat had a large box at my feet and the headset/charger didn’t work at my armrest, which meant I had zero audio for the entire flight."

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: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"

Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."

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: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."

Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."

Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"

Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."

Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"

Pros: "Crew: helpful/cheery, cabin: clean"
Cons: "Reclined seats intrude on passenger behind"

Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."

Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."

Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."

Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."

Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."

Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."

Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"

Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"

Pros: "Good entertainment on seatback screens, pretty good food for an airplane (dinner, breakfast and lots of snacks and drinks), clean and good sized bathrooms."
Cons: "Seat comfort sucked obviously!"

Pros: "Great crew and seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me was extra nervous which was a little un nerving"

Pros: "On check in we were offered the extra legroom right at the front, with just the two of us on the row!"

Cons: "tv entertainment,i wish i had realised that there was no TV for the children. ."

Pros: "It was OK"
Cons: "It would of been nice to know why we were delayed."

Cons: "If the boarding time had remained unchanged and there was more legroom"

Cons: "Flight from Napier to Auckland was delayed"

Cons: "The seat leg room is getting smaller and smaller. You can't put your seat back- you'll crush the person behind! And I'm short!!"

Pros: "On time if not ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The price is in good relation with the quality of service."
Cons: "The attention of the flight coordinator was poor, is a gross person under pressure and with really bad manners"

Pros: "The price was OK"
Cons: "The flight (scheduled for 80 minutes) was almost 6 HOURS LATE!!! The information we received whilst waiting was inconsistent. Very frustrating."

Pros: "yes it was"
Cons: "Music!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly as scheduled."
Cons: "The waiting"

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were patient & helpful"
Cons: "The fact that both my recent Jetstar flights have been delayed (to & from Rarotonga, and today’s flight was so late I missed my connecting flight & it meant a disadvantage to my family plus $221 extra for me to buy another ticket."

Pros: "The pilot made such a smooth landing, it was one of the best I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"

Pros: "Early departure, smooth operation, efficient service"
Cons: "Seats a bit close for Clive’s 6 foot frame"

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."
Cons: "It was a flight we've done heaps before. It would be nice to have all luggage actually transferred through from Napier to Manchester as it's an added challenge when also carting babies around."

Pros: "No mess airline, fast and efficient"

Pros: "Arrangement when flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Cancel the flight without letting me know"

Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"

Cons: "The floor next to my seat looked like someone had emptied their chip packet on it. The plane was late arriving but surely there’s time to vacuum up the mess!"

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: "The crew were friendly enough and were accommodating in handling my baggage"
Cons: "The plane was an older model airbus configured to maximize seating. as a result the flight was uncomfortable. You think this may be the reason for the fairly low fare but they stick it to you with baggage fees. The maximum is 15kgs [ most airlines allow 23kgs ] In addition you have to pay for all items on board. There is no such thing as free coffee or soft drinks. I would recommend this airline if you have little or no baggage and are going on a day trip to Wellington or Auckland. Otherwise, stick with Air New Zealand."

Cons: "Since more chairs have been added there is no leg room! My husband had difficulty getting in and out. We will not be flying jet star for longer flights"

Cons: "I thought it was poor I had to pay $60 for carry on luggage. Absolute rip off"

Pros: "Quick and easy, just as expected, staff professional and. Friendly"

Pros: "Boarded quickly and no delays. Didn't order any food and no entertainment on planes from Nelson to Auckland"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to come out. Likely due to Jetstar only having one carousel."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."

Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "We didn't crash and everything apart from the leg room being smaller was okay."
Cons: "They have taken two inches off the leg room. I know cause my legs now don't fit sitting straight."

Pros: "courtesy baggage for carry on"
Cons: "Late flight 1.5 hr delay....so missed business meeting...will not use again for business or time critical travel And seated next to a fat passenger who spilled into my seat...most uncomfortable flight leaning into aisle to get some space meant I was bumped by the crew. lame experience all round"

Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"

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: "Crew very helpful thanks. A bit rough to have to pay 4 baggage in top of paying 4 flight.On international flights, yr baggage is included in the price ."

Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."

Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"

Pros: "The fare was cheap and my body physically was moved from the origin to the destination..."
Cons: "The website and customer service are annoyingly difficult to use, potentially designed to force you to pay more for extras like bags. For instance, if you pay for your bag ahead of time, it is meant to be cheaper. I tried to pay for my bag ahead of time and it took me to a check-in page. I tried multiple times but only ever got to the same check-in page. Figuring that perhaps I needed to check in first, I did this step only to find that if you pay for your bag after check in, it costs more money!! On the return trip, I felt wiser so I refused to fill in the check-in page before paying for baggage. I exhausted every possible link on their website and ultimately had to call customer service. This took an annoyingly long time. I was told when I tried to pay for a 15kg bag that they had run out of space on the plane and I couldn't pay for this; however, I COULD pay for a 20kg bag at a higher price. WHAT? As I was told this was my only option, I took it, but the logic defies reason and makes me conclude that their systems are simply designed to force you to pay for extras. If I had it to do over, I would just book Air New Zealand for an extra $50-- it would save me plenty of time and hassle."

Pros: "We selected this flight with no knowledge of this airline, as we were coming from the states. Being international traveling for three weeks obviously we had some luggage with us. This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers."

Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."

Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."

Pros: "Cheerful, pleasant and helpful ground crew and flight attendant"
Cons: "Not even a cup of water available in flight??"

Pros: "Easy, efficient"
Cons: "Very expensive"

Pros: "They left on time."
Cons: "The Jetstar checkin staff. They are not very friendly. I was a few kilos overweight and I had nothing but grief from them - as well as my purse put on the scales - which added to the weight. I have never had my purse put on the scales before. I ended up having to pay $160.00 Australian for a few kilos. My fare did not even cost that much. As far as I am concerned Jetstar need a watchdog to take this up on travellers behalf. How can a few filos cost that much - when you can book your luggage through for $25.00."

Cons: "Left late and ripped the handle off my case."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ground staff attitude, very inconsiderate, we thought that being an international flight , we were entitled to checked baggage so did not include that when we did booking. Found out at the airport that we did not have any checked baggage allowance. Although we explained that this was an error as we were under the impression that checked baggage was always included for international flights they were very in considerate and made us pay $ 320.00. Will inform everyone to avoid Jet Star airlines when they travel."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew , baggage price , food"
