Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"

I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

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

Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

I get to the desk to pay £100 for checking luggage. My first flight and I get court out. Never again!!!! Making money by being closed with information is not the way to make profit!!!!"
Cons: "3rd party booking should be Cristal clear on what you are buying!!!!! Over half an hour spent on the phone and I didn’t even get though to help. JOKERS, this is No help when you are paying the bill. Cost more, you pay in the end. Cheap it is not!!!!"

Cons: "Jetstar is the worst airline I’ve ever taken"
Pros: "I'm a regular flyer, and can't count how often I've been on planes. This was the best, smoothest and least stressful of any shirt hop I've ever taken, and while it can't rival a big plane for food or entertainment, the seats were cozy, I had legroom and it was simply very well done!!"

WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Got in slightly ahead of schedule."
Cons: "No lounge access, no complimentary snacks and drinks, miserable cabin crew, seating very very cramped in 3 3 3 config so not suitable for couples wanting a row to selves. Mosquito's flying round the plane. The pilot told us to "Rest in peace" at the beginning of the flight. Looking around at the passengers faces a better choice of words could have been used. Noise levels were terrible, couldn't hear the safety instructions because of the sound traveling around the aircraft.Luggage took a very long time to come off the plane."
Cons: "Not confortable seats"
Pros: "Ít’s a terrible experience with Jetstar!"
Cons: "Agent at the counter gave us headache just because she request information that is not necessary. I had to run more than one hour from counter to counter and it near the boarding time and until when I asked another agent, she said that I don’t need that information for my flight. Thanks God! I think She has poor training"

Cons: "1 star for entertainment and food because the flight is only 40 minutes!"
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."
Cons: "There's little to like. Extremely cramped conditions. Poor food and beverage. Avoid if you possibly can."
