To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."

Pros: "no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies"
Cons: "Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like."

Pros: "Service was great. Best food hubby and I ever had on a flight, international or domestic!"
Cons: "No issues!"
Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."

Pros: "Italy a okay flight"

Pros: "The cabin staff were friendly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to excess baggage weight in hull. The baggage had to be unloaded and then reloaded again, while we sat on the tarmac for an hour."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff on board and land crew. Difficult to judge food as it was only a snack and as the flight was only just over the hour there was no entertainment ."
Pros: "Check in worked well"
Cons: "Significant delay because an intoxicated passenger was taken off flight, and her bag had to be found. Why was she allowed to check the bag in if she wasbthatvdrunk! No immigration slips for Australia available on plane. This meant another delay to complete when on ground."

Pros: "It was all on time. A good flight."
Pros: "They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before."

Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"
Pros: "First time flyer very good"
Pros: "On time departure/arrival"
Pros: "All very straightforward from boarding to landing. Pleasant and helpful crew. As comfortable as could be for a small plane."
Cons: "No entertainment available - although flight was only an hour so not really a big deal"
Cons: "Poor/no communication when flights were delayed, then cancelled, then delayed, then cancelled again! Resulted in waiting at the airport until after 12pm and very little of any sleep."
Cons: "Hardly any staff, we had to load & check in our own bags. The mechanical baggage belt was initially not working so the lines of people waiting grew. There was no-one to explain what we had to do so we only printed our boarding passes, and didnt realise we had to ALSO print baggage labels, so we consequently lost our place in the queue. NOT HAPPY!"
Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."
Pros: "At least I got notification about delay right before going to the bed and did not have to wake up at 4 am"
Cons: "Flight status online at Jetstar website indicated on time departure, had to call to verify delay. Our boarding pass, issued at 2:30 pm still had 7:30 am boarding time. Flight was delayed because of airplane maintenance but we got no compensation, just $10 Australian voucher to use at the airport to buy food."
Pros: "The price, service, punctuality and the excellent service of all personal involved. Excellent service"
Cons: "A little de organized the boarding process but I have to say caused by passengers behavior, in addition some of the passengers didn't follow the luggage rule and nothing happened. I would like to suggest some information during the fligh. Where were be and what could we be seeing during our flight."
