Pros: "I got the bulkhead seat, so legroom was superb. The inflight dinner was also good (vegetarian gnocchi)."

Pros: "I got the bulkhead seat, so legroom was superb. The inflight dinner was also good (vegetarian gnocchi)."
Pros: "The crew in the Melbourne airport were amazing! There was confusion with my bags and they sorted it out without any stress!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but it was a very clean plane!"
Cons: "Over all it's ok good"
Pros: "unexpectedly about an hour into the flight an announcement came over the loudspeaker. It was something like this : Attention Attention please pull on your oxygen mask when it drops and place it firmly over your mouth and breathe calmly. I was shocked and everyone that I could see looked shocked. Then nothing. It was the announcement that you never want to hear when on an aeroplane. About 5-10 minutes later another announcement that it was an error and a wrong button had been pushed. It certainly was the wrong button to push."
Pros: "The full refund."
Cons: "Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed 20 minutes, the staff were efficient, polite and helpful with my elderly mum."
Pros: "We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option)."
Cons: "Seats on Jetstar are a bit uncomfortable but for a short flight, it doesn't matter as much. Also, the luggage went to the wrong carousel for many folks on our flight."
Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "The check in at Melbourne. It is not straight forward and took more time than using a check n counter. Was not on time and I had to pick up someone when i got ome."
Pros: "Seats were clean and comfortable. Staff were lovely."
Cons: "The self check in system was a joke. Glad we weren’t in too much of a hurry. Also disregard my rating of food and entertainment as we had none on the plane."
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: "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: "The lady at the check-in counter was very helpful!"
Cons: "The seat were pretty uncomfortable for a almost 4 hour flight. It felt like we were squeezed into a tuna can. Also was surprised there was not a movie playing or wifi available to pass the time on a long flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "Noting out of the ordinary"
Cons: "The return flight was over 30 minutes late but was not announced. After the take-off time passed, I found an employee who told me it was going to be late; so although it was never announced, Jetstar knew the plane was late."
Pros: "Head rests on bigger flight Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Having to pay 100 dollars to pay for baggage I didn't even know I had to pre buy. Just ridiculous! This is not common and should be able to be purchased when you check in like everywhere else. "Read the fine print" is not a right cause to screw people over. Having to pay to watch movies. Free section a complete joke!"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for my luggage, food, and alcohol."
Cons: "Was so cold on the flight and couldn't sleep."
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."
Pros: "Very bad entertainment food not that good. Check in at Melbourne airport very mess"
Cons: "Everything. Food not good. Entertainment very bad check in at Melbourne airport very bad. The seat of the business class are not comfortable very small not worth the price we pay"
Pros: "Smooth flight, easy interstate flight with no hassle."
Cons: "Jetstar boarding pass system is very silly. You can't use the email ones on your phone and have to actually print it out. As a suggestion.. maybe have a unified option instead? Charging sms service is ridiculous.. it is 2017!"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and nice."
Cons: "We were charged $100 per bag and $50 per Kg over the weight limit. Baggage fees were not clearly listed when booking this flight. We found out about the cost when we were checking in to board. Jetstar should state up front in the flight cost area about their baggage fees, not hidden in the fine print. A side note, everything on the flight cost extra; water, Wi-Fi, etc. Once the added fees are calculated into the cost, Jetstar is not cheaper than the other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."
Cons: "Jet star counter at Melbourne has the WORST customer service I've ever encountered. Literally 3 employees standing around chatting while I'm trying to find someone to help with my passport not reading. Then standing at another counter waiting to be helped while being completely ignored. I understand when you're busy (even though he didn't seem busy) but at least acknowledging my presence would've been lovely. Also- baggage fees for this airline should be criminal."
Pros: "it got us there"
Cons: "2.5 hrs late an no idea when we were leaving"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good."
Cons: "For s three hour flight we weren't given anything to eat or drink, even water. You had to buy it, very poor not to offer tea/coffee/water."
Cons: "Hassled at luggage check in. Had to throw out clothes and shoes to meet weight requirements as they charge $25 a kilogram for extra weight which was not disclosed when we received our confirmation. We were the only ones hassled over being a few kilos over each. Many people hand large luggage carry ons which wouldn't even fit in the luggage testers yet no one said anything to them. 90 percent of the people were easily over the 7KG weight allowance for carry on luggage and were not hassled at all. It was pure discrimination and perhaps it was because I was italian or my wife had blond hair. Who knows. I have been on hundreds of flights in my life and have never been so humiliated in my life. The blonde luggage counter and boarding ticket taker, was insulting and even insisted on seeing our australian visitors permit which is not required according to Australian customs once you have paid for it and are registered. She even tried to force my wife to check her bag even though it fit in their luggage sizing testers. Another tall lady with glasses at the luggage check in area, was also very insulting and discriminated against us. Horrible experience. Both of those people would be fired if I was running the airline. Its a service business and while I understand rules, you have to have some discretion and if your going to enforce them, they must apply to all passengers, not just 2 people out of 150!"
Pros: "Cheap flight and I felt baggage weight prices were reasonable separate. If you plan any baggage, I suggest considering buying the max up front. It's much cheaper that way and gives you flexibility since it's by weight and not bag count. Second best is anytime prior to airport. If you are overweight at the airport, you're doing it wrong. Bring your own food (I like Subway), water container, and entertainment for minimum discomfort. I would fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding in Melbourne was a mess. They would not let passengers use the gate seating so most people stood in a stupid diagonal line and blocked the terminal walkway until boarding. Also, water from a flight attendant was not free. If you fly on a 787, please go to the back of the cabin and fill a cup/bottle there. Lastly, on flight food seemed meh and overpriced."
Pros: "Please notify kayak customers at time of purchase the need to prepurchase the food. The flight ran out of non prepurchased food. Also, allow the kayak customer to purchase in flight entertainment at time of checkout if cheaper as it was for jetstar"
Pros: "I wasn't happy about the boarding part of it. On our tickets we were boarding through gat 18B and was changed to gate three but there was a serious communication breakdown so much that we had to rush to gate 3 the last minute thing after we looked or made enquiries for ourselves"
Cons: "Fees for everything. By the time you get what you want, you end up paying double advertised price"
Cons: "It was $25 per kilo if I didn't pre add it on my ticket. Meals were for sale only, not complementary, same for entertainment. The plane was comfortable enough and the crew were kind. But the company pinched pennies and over charged at every turn. Don't fly with them!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed - Then the Jetstar staff were ;late so a flight that was already late was delayed even further. I know you are a discount airline, but the seats are truly awful. I will never fly with you again and will tell friends and family never to either - The small saving made from flying with you is not worth the constat delays and how uncomfortable the whole journey is"
Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ripped me and my sis off for over 120 bucks in luggage fees!!!! No one could explain ability to pay online for a lot less!!!!! So freaking unacceptable!!!!! Plus they damaged a new bag and tell me they aren't liable!!!! Don't ever buy a ticket with JETSTAR! Freaking waste of money! Stick with air New Zealand"
Pros: "Non Stop Flight"
Cons: "All Bad. Worst airline every"
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: "The stewardesses were gorgeous. I could've waited 10 hours on the Tarmac with Natalie's beautiful smile..."
Cons: "2 hours delay, ran out of food, almost the whole operation seemed chaotic and confused. Reference number from quantas though flight was jetstar, had me on wild goose chase in unfamiliar terminal"
Pros: "Initially I liked the price and time of the flight, but the amount you have to pay for luggage negated the first thing, so all I was left with was convenient timing. The plane crew was nice, though as there was no beverage or food service unless you paid for it (they will give you tap water for free), there wasn't much for them to do."
Cons: "They weigh your carry-on bag and have a ridiculous 7kg (combined personal and carry-on) limit. Then they blast you with a $25 per kg overage, so if you have the misfortune of being 5kg over (as I was) you get the pleasure of a $125 fee (which I just saw my card was charged $250 - I need to contest that). The seats are so thin you feel the tray of the seat behind you pressing into your back the whole flight, and they recline maybe a whole 2 inches. There is no entertainment, no beverage or snack service and the plane sounds and feels like a cheap car with terribly loud noise and no shocks. As I said in the title, I'd recommend quantas or new Zealand air and spend slightly more (or maybe less after the baggage overage fees) for a better all around experience."
Pros: "Great people , completely happy with my trip ' ! Thanks jets star"
Pros: "You pay for everything extra (like most budget airlines), but the entertainment package well worth it, and Sumo salads/toasties on the menu very tasty. People who complain about luggage restrictions should be aware international travel is much more strict, and will not "look the other way" as American airlines do. Do your research, people!"
Cons: "Not notified about US requirements to fill out back of ticket, so got pulled aside at the gate to do it. Passengers included large group of obnoxious children who ran up and down aisles, chattered loudly, and disturbed other passengers. Adults who were traveling with them did nothing (if you see a group with huge bows in their hair, avoid at all costs), so flight attendants should be better about enforcing rules and keeping order."
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!!!!"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight with no warning, we had to scramble to find an alternative connection to our international flight. The voucher they gave to compensate was more of an insult than anything. They also have ridiculously low maximum weight limits for carry on and then charged absurd rates for checked luggage."
Pros: "When booking the flight I somehow missed that I had to claim luggage beforehand (this was my first time using JetStar). Anyway 170.00 later we were off. The crew and staff were fine. There was no food, no drink, and no entertainment."
Cons: "Besides the luggage fees, the seats were terrible. They sit straight up at a 90 degree angle, almost forcing you to recline to get comfortable. Quite claustrophobic."
Cons: "I had had to fly international as the flight originated from Japan. I had to clear customs in a special assistance line as the smart Gate didn't understand. So add 30_45 minutes to when you think you will be exciting the airport or transferring. Bring your own water and food. Nothing is complimentary or speedy. Don't bring coffee, hot liquids are not allowed. Also, make sure you booked the option with a checked bag or it's charged as excess and it's an exuberant amount."
Pros: "The staff were very good."
Cons: "I booked a seat and did not get the seat l had booked."
Cons: "at check in we were told that there is normally a charge per kilo for all checked in baggage but that it would be waved. that was not stated at the time I bought the tickets online, otherwise I may have opted to use another airline. Using Jetstar was supposed to be an economical choice but given the baggage fees it ups the total and takes them out of consideration for me. I will not use them in the future, you inform people in advance, not hide fees until check in. I don't trust them now."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 3 hours and there was no attempt to make us passengers comfortable during that time. Poor service."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave just after 6 in the morning. However the time kept on being pushed back because they couldn't fix the problem. I understand things happen but the plane was sitting there overnight. They could have checked it earlier to determine if it was ready to go which might have allowed them to fix the problem instead of canceling the flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Had to pay for checked luggage $70 per bag. It was not clear when I booked the flight that checked luggage was not included in the price."
