Cons: The service was terrible and the charging of luggage by weight is ridiculous. I really don’t look forward to flying home on this airline and will not be flying with them any more.

Good 6.8

Pros: After our long and horrendous delay of the flight from Honolulu to Melbourne, we were relieved that this flight back was on time. The plane was comfortable.

Cons: At least the offer of a free drink and snack on the 10.5 hour flight.

SYD
CNS
Mediocre 2.5

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Jetstar is just an airline that charges for everything. No customer service or personality. The carry-on bag rules apparently are not the same for everyone. Several people had multiple bags well exceeding 7kg. Of course the rest of us had to pay the bag fees. Just a company of crooks.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: I should have been informed that I would not be allowed into the country without a return flight booked. Also it should have been more clear that I would have been charged nearly as much for my luggage as I paid for my flight. Not happy at all with buying through this app

OK 4.0

Pros: The airlines stewardess was very helpful and friendly; However I would not recommend that anyone choose to use Jetstar unless they only have an under 7 kg Carry on bag.

Cons: There was literally no where to check in our bags online. We even asked our hotel concierge to look into how we could claim our bags and they could not find anything either . Thankfully we went to the airport early, were told to look at our confirmation online from the check in folks and found absolutely nothing regarding baggage there . and ended up paying for our bags at a reasonable rate because it was prior to check in ; however , other travelers were not so fortunate and ended up paying $70 per check through bag because it was literally impossible to find any place to check them in and people were stuck in a difficult situation without a choice . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg poor person carry on Travelers beware of this - to our knowledge it happened to international travelers, May have been New Zealander as well but are not sure about that . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg per person for our carry-on total carry on. This also is nowhere to be found on the Jetstar website !!!! for every killer that you are over you are charged an additional $15! We did arrive safely and the flight was fine .

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in NZD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
