Pros: That is was a cheap flight

Cons: The baggage fees were ridiculously pricey! As travelers coming from the States with an infant, we did not know at the time how many bags we would check though we knew it would be at least 1. Unlike flights in the States that we are used to, if you did not specify that you would check a bag at the time of purchase ( we purchased 1 month in advance!), what would normally cost you maybe $40 cost us $140! For this reason, we will either not recommend this flight or warn our friends if they insist on flying Jetstar. Also, the leg room was horrible on the flight/

Okay 4.3

Pros: The fare was cheap and my body physically was moved from the origin to the destination...

Cons: The website and customer service are annoyingly difficult to use, potentially designed to force you to pay more for extras like bags. For instance, if you pay for your bag ahead of time, it is meant to be cheaper. I tried to pay for my bag ahead of time and it took me to a check-in page. I tried multiple times but only ever got to the same check-in page. Figuring that perhaps I needed to check in first, I did this step only to find that if you pay for your bag after check in, it costs more money!! On the return trip, I felt wiser so I refused to fill in the check-in page before paying for baggage. I exhausted every possible link on their website and ultimately had to call customer service. This took an annoyingly long time. I was told when I tried to pay for a 15kg bag that they had run out of space on the plane and I couldn't pay for this; however, I COULD pay for a 20kg bag at a higher price. WHAT? As I was told this was my only option, I took it, but the logic defies reason and makes me conclude that their systems are simply designed to force you to pay for extras. If I had it to do over, I would just book Air New Zealand for an extra $50-- it would save me plenty of time and hassle.

This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers.

Which is absurd. Any regular flight allows bag up to 23 Kg before additional charges. This is extortion. Yet there was nothing we could do unless we wanted to leave our bags in Queenstown.

Pros: Plane landed safely at destination. That's the only good thing I can say.

Cons: Baggage fee not made clear when booking. Because we did not prepay, had to spend way more than the cost of ticket to check bags. And you can't even get a free cup of water on plane - that comes with a cost too! Will never fly Jetstar again.

Mediocre 2.3

Cons: We were charged $215 at check in to check our luggage because we hadn't "ticked" that we'd be bringing luggage when we purchased our tickets. We purchased our tickets on Kayak and never were we warned or even been informed that this would be the case. The fee for baggage turned out to be $70 per bag plus $15 per Kg for each Kg over 15 Kg. Which is absurd. Any regular flight allows bag up to 23 Kg before additional charges. This is extortion. Yet there was nothing we could do unless we wanted to leave our bags in Queenstown.

Pros: quick boarding options.

Cons: No snacks or drink options. Also I think paying for luggage is a lot more than it should be, especially if not done ahead of time. Seats are not that comfortable.

Cons: They have a baggage racket where they trick you in to checking your luggage at the airport to charge you $70NZD at the counter not to mention the staff are less than helpful. Also, the seats are so thin you can feel the person behind you breath. I'd give it zero starts if I could.

Okay 5.0

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.

Good 6.3

Cons: I made a small gift purchase in Queenstown and they were going to charge me $70 to put it under the plane. They could have easily put it in a small box, put it under the plane, and charge me $25 at the most for it. Instead I had to give it to the clerk at the counter because I only paid $20 for the item. I didn't mind having to put it under the plane but for $70?

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: We selected this flight with no knowledge of this airline, as we were coming from the states. Being international traveling for three weeks obviously we had some luggage with us. This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers.

Cons: The delay of 2 1/2 hours created havoc and proved to be very expensive for me. El write a letter on this in a couple of days.

Okay 5.0

Pros: That is was a cheap flight

Cons: The baggage fees were ridiculously pricey! As travelers coming from the States with an infant, we did not know at the time how many bags we would check though we knew it would be at least 1. Unlike flights in the States that we are used to, if you did not specify that you would check a bag at the time of purchase ( we purchased 1 month in advance!), what would normally cost you maybe $40 cost us $140! For this reason, we will either not recommend this flight or warn our friends if they insist on flying Jetstar. Also, the leg room was horrible on the flight/

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.
