Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"

Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"

Pros: "Very friendly ground service staff member, lovely to be transferred to an earlier flight and my seating request was granted, flight service was also excellent."

Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."

Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."

Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."

Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"

Pros: "We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat."
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"
Cons: "Check -in staff said that there were no seats available in emergency exit rows so put us in the row in front. We couldn't recline and thete were several seats empty in the emergency exit row behind us."

Cons: "ANZ changed the flight time to 3 hours EARLIER, and they sent NO notification of the change. Missed the flight, and there were no ANZ staff to help, so had to buy a new ticket ( to the tune of $1700.)"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."

Pros: "Cree"
Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"

Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."

Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

Pros: "Air NZwas a good carrier"
Cons: "Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was old. Seats were old and stained. Multiple monitors did not work so no entertainment."

Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."

Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."

Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."

Cons: "Issue with baggage, i.e. no indication of what was included in the ticket and no way to pre-pay for luggage (at what I already considered an exorbitant rate of 60$ per piece) so ended up having to pay120$ each for 2 checked bags at the airport!"

Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."

Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."

Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"

Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."

Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"

Cons: "Tv didn't work to Australia so they moved us to the back row and tv quit working again on the return flight. The flight attendant wasn't helpful and I would rather fly with Jetstar this flight was below budget airlines"

Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."

Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"

Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."

Pros: "Comfortable, clean, helpful crew, charging for devices, good meal, very pleasant experience altogether would definitely fly Air NZ again."

Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was hard to interact with."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything - no crew or pilots so delayed. Then engineers on the plane so delayed. No in flight entertainment as broken - plane appeared to be from the 90s as no way to charge devices. Over 2 hours late and the plane was so old we felt like we were going to break up on landing. Terrible experience"

Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"

Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"

Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Great crew, nice clean aircraft with lots to watch via their streaming service Flight left ontime and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was good but not great"

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the headrest was smaller than an ipad screen"

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas domestic is always chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers"

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"

Pros: "Seat so small , lack of back support and cushioning"
Cons: "Seat is so uncomfortable. For the 6 hr trip need a back adjustment for such a cramped environment. Need review my future travel on Qantas"

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no Sauvignon blanc on the wine list"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Appologises for the delay and the pilots attempt to make up time. The care taken during the turbulent period."

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"

Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Despite software issues and timtams out of stock, crew were lighthearted and joked around with passengers. V refreshing."
Cons: "Comfort still has room to improve, a foot rest would be a step in the right direction. Particularly for us shorter types or those who like to curl up and sleep. Also random upgrades (eg. Exit rows) is always appreciated. Online dinner special was excellent. Breakfast was terrible, maybe because it was the last meal so not as fresh?"

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Pros: "Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well"
Cons: "Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

Pros: "Very smooth flight"
Cons: "No food options by row 29"

Pros: "Seat comfortable, we paid extra for emergency exit"
Cons: "The entertainment system for a 5 hour flight was poor quality and for limited time only. Also the quality of the vegetarian meal was average"

Pros: "We boarded and left on time, the service was good."
Cons: "The picture on the screen for the movie was very poor, although the selection of movies was really good."

Pros: "Good price but not too good services"
Cons: "Better service management to avoid delay flight. Invest in better quality seats for passengers plus better entertainment value to increase more passenger"

Cons: "Older planes are very outdated."

Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."

Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."
Cons: "Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Audio for in flight entertainment did not work midway through the movie. Video was unclear. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"

Pros: "Fantastic crew on board. Great service. Food left a bit to be desired. Entertainment a bit dated but great value for money & extremely punctual"

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Pros: "The crew on Fiji Air is incomparable in friendliness."

Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."

Pros: "Most people who work for the airline are kind."
Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."

Pros: "Love Fiji Airways coz the attendants are always smiling and happy! Prompt service and Captain Das made the take off and landing very smooth! Excellent trip! Thank you!"

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "They did hand out thin blankets."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane... Couldn't feel my body!"

Cons: "Despite buying my ticket with virgin and being a platinum Fiji air tried to charge me $300 for an extra bag."

Pros: "Thank you for allowing 1 free bag since many carriers now charge even for the 1st one. Hot meal was good but serving curry may not appeal to all passengers."
Cons: "The lines were long to check our bags. I enjoyed the chicken curry meal but other people did not like it since it was a little spicy."

Pros: "Crew's service"
Cons: "Better organizing of boarding"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Our flight to NAN was delayed five hours ; however, when we came to the check-in desk, they knew immediately who we were and informed us of a change. The staff at the desk [a man and a woman] were extremely helpful and verified a change would be acceptable and they put in all of the work to make it happen - we returned an hour later and they had switched us to a flight from SYD - SFO - LAX on Qantas airlines. Things from there went off without a hitch ; while our departure time was still 5 hours later, we arrived to the US earlier than we would have on the SYD-NAN-LAX flight."
Cons: "The five hour delay ; however one cannot have qualms with inclement weather."

Pros: "Staff very good, food and beverage service was delayed or postponed due to turbulence but staff made up for it when service resumed."
Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."

Pros: "We have our seats by the window on our flight from Sydney to Nadi, we're so happy for that."
Cons: "We have our seats in the middle of the four (4) seats in the isle of the plane, it's so hard to go to the bathroom, which I do need to go often. We really were not happy and suffering during the flight from Nadi to Los Angeles."

Pros: "The staff was friendly, food delicious, and cabin not too chilly."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Small tight seating and horrible food."

Pros: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."

Pros: "Very nice plane and it includes food and drinks and wonderful service"
Cons: "Extra bag was pretty expensive"

Cons: "Narrow aisles"

Cons: "The gate agent was extremely rude and asked to see our passports. She insisted our carry on be checked in. My son is disabled and requires an isle chair. The gate staff did not allow time for him to get to his seat before letting the rest of the passengers board and the staff assisting him were very upset as were the passengers who were wondering what was taking so long to get to their seats."

Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. My 8th international flight in business class with 3 different airlines and Fiji Airways crew beat them hands down. Loved the Fiji Chicken curry."
Cons: "Angled seats Limited choice on IFE"

Pros: "IT was a quick flight."
Cons: "People always used my the way at my comfort seat to shortn there way...so it wasnt really comfortable. The Crew seemed really stressed."

Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"

Pros: "As described above."

Pros: "It was very good, the crew were amazing, and I didn't have any issue traveling all the way to my destination. Thank you Fiji Airway and the airlines cooperated with you."

Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."
Cons: "Seats are narrow for some people. It can be uncomfortable if the person in front reclines their seat, since the rows are close together."

Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "It was crazy cold on the plane. I'm a frequent flyer and never in my life had I been this cold. I had a sweater, a scarf and a blanket, but couldn't relax to sleep as I was shivering the whole time. My friend traveling with me and the people in our row were feeling the same way. Plus they make you remove your blanket for take off and landing, which I've never had to do with other companies. It went from shivering to teeth chattering. I couldn't understand why they served us a hot meal when we got on the plane. Anyone boarding at 11:30 pm should have already eaten, at that point you just want to sleep, not wait another two hours for food to be served and the trays cleaned up."

Pros: "Great crew and seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me was extra nervous which was a little un nerving"

Cons: "Delayed so long."

Pros: "Nice crew inside the plane"
Cons: "It is outrageous the price for overweight cabin that was not even 10kg. Not food or entertainment included in ticket price. Even if it's a short flight, at least water to keep passengers hydrated should provide. Really uncomfortable with this situation."

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "tons of leg room in emergency aisle + fast on/off loading of plane"
Cons: "weird boarding via bus that was kinda annoying"

Cons: "I paid for for “sports equipment” when I purchased my ticket, however was still made to pay an extra 275$ For my bike upon arrival at the boarding gate. Not happy. I lined up for 1hr 7 minutes before I was able to check in, ridiculous - I just got to the gate as it was boarding and I Arrived 3 hours early for my international flight."

Cons: "I missed it"

Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"

Pros: "Modern aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason at all. Rude staff. Forced a domestic flight to land/take off at an international terminal so we had to go through customs control before taking off and after arrival. Pay some more money and fly Qantas or anything but awful Jetstar..."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation."

Cons: "Was 3 hours late with no reason"

Pros: "Surprised with a great (in air) Uluru shot, 10min before we landed"

Cons: "Too bad you have to pay for every service...seats, TV, food."

Pros: "The price of food etc. The norm!"

Cons: "THE SERVICE WAS EXTREMELY POOR AND THE STAFF WERE RUDE...MY DAUGHTER WAS STANDING DUE TO A BACKACHE AND WAS TOLD BY A STEWARD THAT SHE COULD NOT STAND IN ONE SPOT BUT HAD TO WALK UP AND DOWN THE AISLE OR SIT....DISGRACEFUL ATTITUDE BORDERING ON HARRASSMENT... WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"

Pros: "non"
Cons: "Jetstar"

Pros: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "For some reason I thought I had extra legroom but apparently not I was squished in between two people in the back of the plane the person in front of me was moving around a lot and hurting and knocking my knees"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and arriving good checking."
Cons: "The plane is very basic no entertainment very dull."

Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."

Pros: "On time Polite and friendly crew Way better than Qantas"

Cons: "How is it that a chair on a public train can be more comfortable than one I pay thousands to use"

Pros: "Need to replace seat."

Pros: "the price was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "we had to pay to check bags, change flights, etc. also, no free little snacks or movies, radio, etc."

Pros: "The ease of online check-in and printing my baggage stickers upon arrival at the airport. The staff at the check-in desk were lovely, the staff on the plane were lovely; it was great."
Cons: "Nothing. I've previously had very average experiences with Jetstar which made me uncertain about booking these flights but I was completely overthrown by the service turn-around. I'm now a Jetstar advocate."

Cons: "Nosie"

Cons: "Beer was warm. At that price for average beer it would be nice to have it cold!"

Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"

Pros: "Polite staff well organized"
