Airline reviews

They canceled the flight on Nov 2 and changed it to Nov 1st but did not change connecting flight date. It took me 21/2 hours each day for 3 days to talk to Air NZ to fix my schedule. The aircraft is old and looks like the one Cathay Pacific used in the late 1990s. Their vegetarian meal is so bad that you skip the meals. In short this airline is going downhill so fast and I will not use them again.

Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"
Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too.

Cons: "Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious."
Pros: ":)"
Pros: "Sat in business class pods. Best flights we’ve ever taken !"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I couldn’t get the seat to recline."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for more than one hour which we did not have sufficient time for transfer to LA. We have to run instead of walking."
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "Larding is shambullick from LAX! Needs improving your system . No one to tell you early which line and existing signs for economy and Premium do not stand out .. staff need to be on the ground sooner letting people know and asking them which seats to prevent most people being in the wrong queue"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."
Pros: "The timing of the flight and available entertainment"
Cons: "For economy class, maybe more variety to meals?"
Pros: "Crew was professional, qiality of food great"
Cons: "Boarding is better done row-wise than by alphabetical groups which is arbitrary"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable flight"
Cons: "the inflight food needs to be more accommodative"
Pros: "Everything was outstanding"
Cons: "Nothinng really"
Pros: "Staff, food and service Dubai to Islamabad"
Cons: "Arrogant staff on Houston to Dibai"
Pros: "Loved the spaciuos seats and great leg room. Food superb!"
Cons: "Annoying passenfer who peobably drank too much"
Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "Plane was cramped and old. We watched all of our luggage sit on the tarmac and told attendants who did nothing. Who knows when we will get it back"
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"
Pros: "Airbus from Melbourne to Dubai is very comfortable for a long haul flight"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Air Plan 380 is comfortable"
Cons: "Delay in flight, for food there was in the menu to option, but actually only one available. The touchscreen was not responding well."
Pros: "I forgot my laptop in the flight and called almost inertial but could not find it yet."
Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Awesome plane, lovely cabin crew, overall went above and beyond to make it as best a flight they could for us! I will definitely fly (and prioritise) emirates as a preferred airline from now on."
Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "No tea only coffee. No extra drinks. Crew unenthusiastic. Fewer decent English movies. Will be looking elsewhere after 14 years of being emirates-loyal."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."
Pros: "Enerttainment"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."
Pros: "Over all experience"
Pros: "So roomy on the a380 Vegetarian food great"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fanatics"
Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Hostesses were professional and very service oriented - not forgetting your request. Service with a smile Very sooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "Attentive service, had a special treat for me as it was my birthday."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Had a few hours sleep also. Very happy."
Pros: "Food, Service"
Cons: "Lack of Restrooms"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment on a comfortable sized tv screen."
Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."
Pros: "Excellent all the way."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Cons: "Not enough food and snacks"
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "1. Crew was nice"
Cons: "1. Less new bollywood movie choices 2. Delay in boarding 3. Less and repetitive vegetarian food options"
Pros: "Treated superbly!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
Cons: "Slow cleanup after food service."
Pros: "Accommodating flight attendants. Easy transfer between flights."
Cons: "The length oh the flight, but Emirates can't help that. It was 14 to 15 hours."
Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"
Pros: "Short flight, but they fed us great food, great service, even good wine."
Pros: "Everything, I was upgraded to the upper cabin, crews are wonderfully friendly and warm."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food isn’t tasty at all"
Pros: "movie selection was good"
Cons: "air was stale, food was just okay"
Cons: "We left about a half hour late, but made up some of the time in the air."
Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."
Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Excellent in-flight service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "The business class attention, and the quietness of an A380"
Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"
Pros: "The plane was newish and had some more modern conveniences. Foot rest, phone spot with USB plug. New light/shade window shades. Newer style tough screen TV."
Cons: "My only fault was that the food was not terribly good. Pasta was gluey."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Terrible meals. Ran out if nany items. Only one refreshment s tree and in the back of the plane."
Pros: "Vegetarian food was good!"
Cons: "Seats too cramped and very difficult to get in and out of when the seats in front recline.” Dreadful mid flight snack."
Pros: "Kind, kept us fed."
Pros: "Gracious flight attendants. Gluten free meals were good too."
Cons: "Only wish they had WiFi on the plane."
Pros: "Great staff and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Flight was almost 1 hr behind."
Pros: "Outstanding service and a nice mid day snack."
Cons: "Ride a bit bumpy due to rain and cloud cover descending into Brisbane."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "Food on Qantas is better than domestic U.S. carriers and it's nice to still experience good service."
Cons: "It is frustrating that most airlines never leave on time anymore. They should be required to pay each passenger $50 for every 15 minutes they are late. It's also terrible that seats have become so cramped. My biggest fear is to drop something at my feet because then I can never reach it. Sigh."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful and mostly delicious. Every attempt was made to make the trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The economy Seating area is very small for such a long trip."
Pros: "The crew take time to talk to you, and everyone of them has a smile. The in flight meals were great, not typical airline TV dinners. They were good meals. The entertainment selection is outstanding, especially for a 14-hour flight. power outlets work, and they even have snacks in the galley area like Lufthansa so if you need a soft drink, coffee or candy...it is there all during the flight. A long flight could not be made easier"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the size of the aircraft and leg room in coach."
Cons: "I had ordered a special meal which was never delivered. I also don't like the weight restriction for carryon luggage. I got from the US to Australia without my luggage weighted and carried it on, but on my return to the US was told I had to check it. DO NOT like checking luggage."
Pros: "A lot of snacks"
Pros: "Quick boarding, punctual flight, nice snack for a short flight."
Cons: "Dash 8 is a bit cramped when it is full."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"
Pros: "toddler seat. Staff took care of my family and went out of their way to find us and got us situated."
Cons: "food selection"
Pros: "Food was good and service was excellent."
Pros: "The Qantas staff in both LAX and MEL were polite, helpful, and professional. No problems checking in, online or at the airport. Flights were punctual and aside from major delays, went as planned. The kindness and responsiveness of the crew made the flight more bearable. What can I say? Everything went very smoothly. To me, a sign of competent management and good work ethic among Qantas employees. Very impressed. Good job Aussies!"
Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Cons: "I was right by the toilets"
Pros: "lovely stewards and stewardesses, most needed warm soft blankets"
Cons: "vegan food was awful and poor nutrition, cold, huge plane with light panels so high up in the ceiling that when and if you turned them on to read, it was bothersome and intrusive to others, poor choices of movies, few currents ones, seats, though leather, had been used too many times before me and were not comfortable, had to put my seat up so person behind me could eat aisles so small I could not walk and stretch if carts would being used, aisle handles don't raise so when my companions had to go to the bathroom, I had to ask the person in front of me to raise their seat!!?? Insufficient leg room better trip on my return mostly because of the plane, it was smaller and better seats..it was a 380"
Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Pros: "The service on flight was excellent. Attendants were very helpful and professional. I was pleasantly surprised with the food, especially for an international flight. They were also very helpful with seating when it came to putting me and my partner next to each other and in seats with extra legroom (we did pay for it so I guess it was expected)"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone was HORRIBLE! I waited almost 2 hours on the phone and got NOTHING accomplished! Purchased my seats online, then got a notification saying it didn't go through. Called to fix the issue, but the man on the phone put me on hold for almost an hour! Only to accidentally put my partner and I in different rows. When I complained at the lack of professionalism from him over the phone, he offered some sort of compensation. When I agreed, he transferred me to his supervisor who said they do not compensate in any form! So why offer it then?! I then called the reservation department like I was told to, and they said they would look into the issue and call me back. This was about a month or two before my flight, and even though it's been a week after my flight, I have yet to get that call I was promised (nor the compensation). WORST PHONE CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED! As for the flight, my only complaints are the messy boarding process and the uncomfortable seats in economy. Although you can't really expect more from old planes such as these."
Pros: "registration was easy and well organized. Kosher food was perfect and served timely. Crew was polite and helping immediately. Everything was comfortable, except the quality of earphones ."
Cons: "The food was terrible. By the time the meal cart came to ou row, all the got meals was out and we have no choice and was served with the cold ham salad that looks like left overs, both my son and I lost our appetite looking at it. The crew didn't apologize and gave the impression that we either take it or too bad. Won't be recommending this airline."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor boarding procedure in Melbourne. Delay badly handled, missed important connection. Business class inflight entertainment dos not work!"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew attentive."
Cons: "Needs better, current movies"
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working twice and I had to ask the crew to fix it for me twice. They were helpful and fixed it, but it was a bit of a hassle."
Pros: "Great check in, comfy plane, with arm rests that go fully up, even when the plane is taking off and landing."
Cons: "The lamb meatballs with couscous was the worst tasting thing I've ever eaten on a plane ever."
Pros: "check in, boarding, and baggage claim was relatively quick"
Cons: "online check in did not work at 9pm before the flight- i was unable to select a seat woman at the check in counter was not friendly. i also asked if it was possible to have a window seat and she said " i dont think there are any available" *prints boarding pass* rather than "let me check" *checks seats* food options were limited- in past experiences with qantas i wouldve assumed meal was chicken or beef and a vegetarian option. this flight was fish pork or beef. fish and pork are polarizing proteins for many people. fish is also malodorous."
Pros: "Boarding and flight was ok for a budget airline"
Cons: "Flight attendant let a drunk male on the plane. Male was disruptive and rude in front of children. The flight attendant then tried to serve the male more alcohol on the flight. Not professional or safe behavior."
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!"
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: "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: "Everything went well and was as advertised. This is a low cost carrier so their business model relies on extra charges for everything. Prepaid my luggage for $19 each way and decided not to order any food (much cheaper at the airport anyway). People just have to be aware that low cost carriers like Jetstar can offer such affordable fares by excluding many things. Qantas would have been approximately 2x as expensive per flight and would have included more things, but the appeal of low cost is to be able to choose what you need."
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."
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: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No legroom"
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!"
Cons: "On an international connection I had to collect my baggage, clear customs, and re-check for my onward trip."
Cons: "Check in and payment for baggage was confusing and not well organized."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour. Then another hour plus on the tarmac. Concerns regarding weather at destination, and not having enough fuel to divert to alternative airport- but how can you attempt to fly without enough fuel for such emergencies? Isn't that routine procedure? Poor customer service, captain stated we may have to land at airport 2+ hours flight away from original destination. All worked out in the end, despite (rather than because of) Jetstar."
Cons: "The fee for checked bags was outrageous."
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Flight attendant that yanked my boarding pass out of my hand. 2d flight attendant who twice "forgot" to tell me whether she had looked for or found my luggage lock which had gotten lost when 1st flight attendant yanked my boarding pass out of my hand."
Cons: "Because we didn't guess how many bags we would have when we bought the tickets, or how heavy they would be, we had to pay an excess baggage fee of almost $500 for two bags (20 kg and 22 kg) at the airport. I can see getting a discount for paying for baggage fees ahead of time, but such a high "excess fee" when they are your first bags seem ridiculous. And being charged $4 for a bottle of water on a 9 hour flight?? I have never flown with an airline with such absurd fees and never will again."
Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."
Pros: "The check in team was very cordial. The pilot did a great job in landing the airplane in difficult weather conditions."
Pros: "Allowed us to sit with bassinet for our three month old baby. Flight was very smooth and staff were friendly. Make sure to order meal ahead of time as that's what we did and that way you get served first."
Cons: "Meals are expensive for what you get."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding on tarmac in the rain, no cover over walkway. Smallest and tightest seating in the airline business."
Pros: "Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates. We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time. Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket.

Cons: "First time on a domestic airline in Australia, I read the information which appeared to say you could bring a 7 kg carry on item and a computer bag and a women could bring a small purse. When we checked in my wife's purse and my laptop in bag were all added as additional weight. So we were forced to pay additional excess weight charges of $50."
Pros: "Soo friendly and the discount flight, with a review f the luggage rules, I. Advance, led to a great experience."
Cons: "All good for a cheap flight"
Pros: "Flights with direct connections that other airlines dont offer. Seats are normal for a budget airline. Just bring your own food and things to do on the plane so you dont have to pay for extras. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Variable policy on luggage. On the international flight they didn't get the weight of carry on luggage, if they did you would get a huge fine for paying for the extra weight. Better to just pay the cost ahead of time if you know you need to check luggage. Check in onto the plane is still a bit of a mess, always seems to be "every just get on" type of process."
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: "Good entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not great food for money spent on meal-$24 for 2 oz of chicken and minimal sides; also charged double to get visa to get into Australia in the fi"
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 was charged for checked bags when there was no indication on their website that this would happen. Also there were several tiers of luggage weight with increasing charges. They made me check a rolled-up expensive picture I had bought rather than letting me put it in the overhead bin."
Cons: "App didn't ask for baggage and then got charged 170 dollars to check bags. Worst airline that I have flown."
Pros: "Good cabin crew. Clean modern aircraft."
Cons: "When purchasing ticket through an outside website you are not advised that luggage is a $320 option when purchased at the airport. Use Jetstar website only."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight with many departure times"
Cons: "The flight was just under an hour and a half. It felt like the intercom was running constantly. They were selling raffle tickets for a car, they were selling snacks, they were asking for donations to a charity. The constant intercom communications were very frustrating. There is also a hidden $50 fee per checked bag with a limit of 15Kg. After that there is a charge for every kilogram over 15. We ended up paying $220 in baggage fees. It would have been cheaper to buy two more seats and buckle our luggage in."
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: "Non Stop Flight"
Cons: "All Bad. Worst airline every"
Cons: "I did not expect to fly an international flight that I have to pay for extra luggage and your company did not put that on an options"
Cons: "The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ."
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."
Pros: "On time service and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "No complimentary beverage service"
Pros: "The plane is reasonably comfortable The tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Boarded late and the signs lied to the passengers saying the gate is closing Long walk to the boarding gate and no powerpoints in the gate Food is overpriced and mediocre"
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."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable and reclined nicely. Very bright reading light."
Cons: "I wish they had foot rests for the economy class seats. Also didn't realize meals would be additional costs for a 9 hour flight until we got on the plane."
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: "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."
Cons: "Had to carry luggage from one terminal to the next and have to recheck baggage for a connecting flight. Automated check in machines don't work well and are not at all user friendly. Not enough staff present to help with the process. The whole rechecking in was a nightmare at Melbourne."
Pros: "Straightforward."
Cons: "I had to pay fees for two extra luggage, there was no pre-warning about this."
