The flight is like Southeast Airlines, so don't expect any entertainment or special features. The ride was a bit bumpy, but the plane handled the conditions well. The flight was for only 2 hours and 48 minutes. We didn't get anything to eat unless you paid for it; the food didn't look that appealing to me. Overall, I just happy to be in Australia safely.

The baggage fees ended up costing $100 more than the flight.... I guess this is a lesson in reading the fine print!? Seems like Kayak and Jetstar could have been a lot more forthcoming. Methods seem predatory and I will avoid Jetstar in future. I feel ripped off!

Nothing in the service that would warrant any positive discussion

Upon attempting to checkin online, Jetstar indicated that checkin had to be undertaken at the Queenstown airport. No prompt was provided to indicate that baggage registration and payment would have to be handled via the general website, in spite of being denied the ability to checkin online. To our surprise, we faced a $75/bag checkin fee at the airport, being told registration of baggage at the airport would face a premium fee. Unfair or what...?

Nothing, whole dealings was disappointing.

Baggage fees not included in flight cost. Baggage fees was costly. They didn't even offer free water on the flight.

The service was terrible. The entire experience was really incredibly disappointing. I will never book Jetstar again.

They charged me the price of my ticket because my carry on weighed too much. The staff was very rude!

I had to pay $160 for luggage. I didn't want to check it, I wanted to carry on my backpack and small luggage case. Didn't realize BOTH had to be below 7 kg which is absolutely nothing. The check in man was rude and definitely could've helped a backpacking student as myself out... the flight was practically empty I don't think weight of luggage mattered!

Good 7.3

The flight is like Southeast Airlines, so don't expect any entertainment or special features. The ride was a bit bumpy, but the plane handled the conditions well. The flight was for only 2 hours and 48 minutes. We didn't get anything to eat unless you paid for it; the food didn't look that appealing to me. Overall, I just happy to be in Australia safely.

No entertainment or good service.

It's a flight that takes you where you want to go. Nothing more.

7kg carry on limit. But I paid ahead of time for my suitcase knowing this.

Nothing. They are a bunch of criminals.

They are a bunch of criminals. They stole $320 from us in baggage fees, just because we didn't check in online. THIS WAS MENTIONED NOWHERE ON THEIR WEBSITE OR DURING BOOKING OR IN EMAILS THEY SENT BEDORE THE FLIGHT. They are a cheap criminal airline and I will never fly with them again.

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.
