Pros: Flight was good. Good snacks and beverages. There was no entertainment so we were on our own.. Plane was comfortable

Cons: The cabin baggage restrictions are very, very strict. 7kg (15lbs) limit for carryon combined with your personal item. So strict that they take the time to weigh your luggage before going through the gate. Very frustrating because a small case already weighs up to 6.2lbs. Add your chargers, camera, phone, voltage converter, book and you are over the limit. Flight attendants were grumpy and the over head storage was occupied by the flight attendants personal belongings and items for the plane. Very little space for our 1 carryon.

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.

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.

Cons: The seat leg room is getting smaller and smaller. You can't put your seat back- you'll crush the person behind! And I'm short!!

Okay 4.0

Pros: I checked in online and wasn't able to add my bags to my reservation, so figured I would do it when I got to the airport. Big mistake. It cost me NZ$ 215 to heck my two bags (one was admittedly heavy, but that is still an insane amount). I knew I would have to pay for bags but more money because of something that I was unable to adress is absurd.

Pros: Check in was quick, but our flight was delayed. We received an email notification which helped. Of course we wish the flight wasn't delayed but having an extra hour in queenstown is amazing.

Cons: Delayed flight

Mediocre 2.0

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.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Check in was fast and friendly. You MUST buy checked luggage on line before you get to the airport or you will pay. We did this and had no problems at all. Also get there early and be nice. Were told our CPAPs would count as part of our free carry on allowance and were infuriated as this has NEV

Cons: Misinformation on CPAP policy.

Okay 4.5

Pros: Good ticket price.

Cons: They charge $60 per checked bag at check-in, and weight limits on carry-on luggage are unreasonably low.

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.
