Pros: They cancelled return flight and were rude when I tried to rebook; they also weigh luggage and charge extra; had one kind agent who helped; won’t fly again and won’t use cheap flights

Okay 4.6

Pros: Customer service was very helpful on rebooking our flight - when they explained the whole luggage thing and how I did not purchase the correct type of flight based on the luggage we had. Apparently a common problem - as I heard others having same issues. Be careful!! JetStar recommended booking through their site - so you are sure to purchase the correct amount of kilos for the luggage and no surprises at airport - very very expensive!!!

Cons: Absolutely nothing on the plane - water. Luckily it was a short flight. Everything is available for sale. This is a very stripped down flight - so be prepared to pay for any sort of add on. Which is okay, if you are prepared for that. Also - when you buy your ticket that is basically just for you (your physical body and a carry on) to get on the plane. And they have strict weight guidelines with the carry-ons to adhere to as well. If you are checking bags - know the weight you are checking - they are not concerned with the number of bags - it's the overall weight of everything you are checking. Amount of checked bags is an additional cost to the ticket mentioned above. All to be considered to be sure you and your bags/belongings get on the plane.

Pros: Jetstar notified 2 hour delay and when we reached airport after 2 hours they said flight is cancelled. We had to go to Auckland anyways to catch international flight next day morning.

Pros: stunning scenery of the southern alps... which had nothing to do with jetstar.

Cons: where to begin... 1) $455 in baggage charges. yes, you read that right. 2 tickets cost $150. bags cost $450. absurd. enough said. we were connecting from an international flight, 2 adults and a toddler. it's not like we had an obscene amount of luggage. 2) so i tried to buy an extra seat (we were traveling with our 23-month old son)... buying an extra ticket and baggage allowance with it would have cost $100 less than the baggage charge with 2 tickets. But they would not allow this. 3) they would, however, block the seat next to us for free, so it would remain empty for my son. So we were not allowed to buy it, but they would keep it free for us. 4) we get on the plane, and the seat next to us is not blocked... someone else sits in it. if the plane is full, that makes perfect sense... but the plane wasn't full.. there were 20 empty seats. 5) so my son is unhappy because he wants his own seat, we're crammed into a full row... and there's a completely empty row behind us. So I ask the flight attendant if we can move. She says no, not until after take-off... first person to get there wins. Really? So, thank you but no thank you to jet star. at every opportunity they might have had to make our trip easier... they failed. miserably.

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
