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

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Cons: "Our family nearly missed the trip due to delayed from Melbourne"

Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."

Pros: "The flight was on time, staff courteous and we made good time to the destination."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"

Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."

Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."

Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."

Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"

Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."

Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."

Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"

Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."

Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"

Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."

Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."

Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"

Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."

Pros: "Snack ordering system Good service (picked up passenger's eye glasses when person was sleeping)"

Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."

Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."

Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."

Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"

Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Made me run from connecting flight in Sydney."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"

Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."

Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."

Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"

Pros: "I always enjoy the flights that have the in-seat entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."

Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "2 hours late leaving"

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."

Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."

Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Good crew, spacious seats for economy. Good food."
Cons: "I wish they let us pick our seats, but they were assigned."

Pros: "The check in process was seamless - we did not queue at all The crew were great and gave us a bottle of bubbles when we landed The food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "The entertainment on board was really disappointing"

Pros: "Great Airplane i felt awesome tha movies the food everything was great with this flight"

Pros: "Not much I can think of"
Cons: "Undisclosed charges for bags and a check on that lasted over 30 minutes and my entire family ogn6 people were scattered throughout plane with absolutely no effort to put young kids next to parents"

Cons: "The Latam check in person charged me $30.00 USA,for my check in bag even though my reservation says 1 carry on and 1 check in. This is not right , you guys can check this information. Maybe I have to look for a different web site for service."

Cons: "The check-in and boarding process was chaotic. Only one check-in station accepted credit cards to pay for check bags, creating a long delay when the printer broke."

Cons: "Fo"

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Domestic flight had no transfer to onward domestic on same airline. Had to go though arrival then check back in."

Pros: "The inflight crew was nice."
Cons: "I hate checking in with LATAM! I swear they make up new bag rules for every person that walks up. There were people with 2 carry ones, purses, and shopping bags.

Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."

Pros: "About as comfortable as it could be given a 10 hour flight and a pretty full plane."
Cons: "Boarding at LAX was unpleasant. Waited in a crowded shuttle bus for at least 20 minutes then long drive to a remote boarding gate."

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent Business class seating quite roomy"
Cons: "Food was ok but not to the standards of Qantas / Emirates or Etihad The cabin seating etc, looked a little tired & dated & the seats mechanical operation was clunky. Toiletries bag provided was quite limited, but was fit for purpose."

Cons: "Delay meant I missed a meeting deadline."

Pros: "We are an American Family. We traveled on LATAM Sydney to Auckland round trip. The plane was brand new Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 with all the bells and whistles. The attendants who are Spanish speakers but bilingual were delightful. We had one meal on each flight and 2 rounds of drinks. We had no issues with carry on or checked luggage. To summarize we had 2 perfect on-time flights with no fuss or drama. I couldn't recommend them more even if I tried.."

Cons: "Because we didn't know Spanish, we were confused as to which line we should board for the flight. After waiting for 15 minutes in the line, we were told we should have been on another line. there were alot of english-speaking persons on the plane and it would have been good to make announcements in english also."

Pros: "Crew were ok , but all looked like they had had a long day. Functional but not outstanding."
Cons: "Late departing"

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!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Overall great experience"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "I liked the organisation"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Overall experience very good"
Cons: "All goid"

Pros: "Easy check in, bag drop and courteous staff"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food or water"

Cons: "Was 3 hours late with no reason"

Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"

Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"

Pros: "cost effective, good flight."

Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"

Pros: "First time flyer very good"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Cons: "Poor/no communication when flights were delayed, then cancelled, then delayed, then cancelled again! Resulted in waiting at the airport until after 12pm and very little of any sleep."

Pros: "The plane was not full plenty of room to move to a better seat with a window."
Cons: "No entertainment so was a bit boring plus why pay for seats when they move you to a different anyway."

Pros: "Up front seat, very comfortable! Comfortable enough for me to sleep through the flight which it doesn't happen ever on any flight I've been on"
Cons: "First flight I've been on that I got nothing to complain about! Crew were friendly everything was awesome!"

Cons: "Food was horrendous and staff service was poor considering we were in business."

Cons: "Ridiculously over priced baggage fees. I couldn't believe I was being charged just as much for my flight as I was my checked bags. They hope you book with them because they're slightly more affordable than other companies but then charge you for absolutely everything once you get to the airport. Staff seem to know its unfair, but unwilling to do anything to help you. I'll never fly with them again."

Cons: "160 dollars to check a bag. I'll never fly with this airline again"

Pros: "At least I got notification about delay right before going to the bed and did not have to wake up at 4 am"
Cons: "Flight status online at Jetstar website indicated on time departure, had to call to verify delay. Our boarding pass, issued at 2:30 pm still had 7:30 am boarding time. Flight was delayed because of airplane maintenance but we got no compensation, just $10 Australian voucher to use at the airport to buy food."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Return journey of our flight was moved so disrupted our onward flights. Getting in touch with customer services was impossible. Only way is to 'live chat' then they tell you their hands are tied and to speak to the 'refunds team' who don't have a number and will 'be in touch with you'. They won't be. Then outbound flight was cancelled at the last minute. Waiting for a refund........and waiting. If it's a choice between jet star or swimming to your next destination, swim."

Pros: "Not much about JetStar or Kayak"
Cons: "I like many others, had to pay $320 to get our suitcase on the plane. JetStar said that it was kayak's fault for not including the luggage allowance at the time of booking. First off no one in this world has ever heard of this predatory way to rip people off. I consider it dirty and extremely underhanded. So you book your "economical flight through Kayak and they do not include this fee for $11. Big deal you say, well it gets to be a very big deal. We paid about $600 for our seats only, without knowing that Jetstar would want to also be paid extra for our baggage. They call it baggage allowance. If Kayak knew what the hell they were doing ( they are supposed to that is why we pay them) they would also know about the baggage allowance and it would have been $11. However when we arrived at the airport Jetstar wanted another $640 for our two 20kg bags. We were able to talk them down to $320. We went from Auckland to Sydney and for our connecting flight they wanted an additional $640. I said no, and that they could keep the bags. At that point I was told to get control of my emotions. Eventually we did not have to pay any additional "baggage allowance" to get to the Sunshine Coast. If I had kept control of my emotions they would have charged us at total of $1280.00 for our luggage on a $600 pair of connecting flights. What bullshit!!!!!!! Also wanted $4.00 for any kind of drink on board the plane. don't even think of food or a drink on board the plane unless you have money to burn!"

Cons: "This would have been my 4th and final flight with Jetstar. I was allowed to board the 3 previous flights with my luggage without any problems but when I got to the gate to board the plane this 4th time I was refused because of the weight of my luggage which forced me to stay in the Auckland airport for 24 hours. I was given two choices at the gate (after already passing through check in and security), I could either pay $160 or throw away half of my luggage. This was outrageous and unethical as Jetstar offered my two impossible choices. I did not have $160 nor did I seem to have time to sort through half my luggage to throw it away which left me missing my flight. The Jetstar employee, who was as cold as ice, then walked me out where I was told I would have to catch the next flight, the next day, and needed to pay $75 to transfer my ticket and pay the normal fee of $40 to get my luggage checked. AFter sleeping in the airport, the next morning I went to check in only to be told the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues and was transferred to another airline (Qantas: which was very good! You should use them). I would have been happy to pay the normal fee of $40 at the gate but once they open the gate the fee goes through the roof. This is unethical when it forces a person to not board there flight to another country. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH JETSTAR UNLESS YOU HAVE ONLY 7KILOS OF LUGGAGE WHICH IS BASICALLY A BACKPACK."

Pros: "Left & arrived on time -AKL to SYD."
Cons: "Not as low cost as advertised. Hidden costs: pay extra to pick a seat. Any seat. No luggage allowance, must pay extra for 1st checked bag. No complimentary drinks, must pay top price for coffee, water, juice. Airline coffee in paper cup. Credit card or debit only. Toilet use might be free... did not ch check."

Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"

Cons: "Website was not clear on baggage policy during booking and upon checking in, we were slammed with baggage fees of $160.00 NZ for each bag. Not happy."

Cons: "I dont know if it was kayak, flight network or their fault, i just know that once i got to the check in counter i had to pay an additional 160 to ship my luggage absurd. The inly thing i know is that i ll not use them anymore. Plus plane was so old i had a spring coming out of my seat on the plane."

Pros: "Frustrated by how late I was allowed to Check-in, then had to rush to the plane. Classic problem, but, why you don't pay for a budget flight."

Pros: "Our flight suddenly changed from 7:20am to 3:45pm and then 4:15pm. There was little to no apologies, explanation or communication. We got a $20 food voucher for the entire delay."

Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."

Pros: "Nothing - terrible service."
Cons: "All they cared about was charging us for our carryon. They lost my luggage and I missed my meetings in Sydney. Nobody to complain to they have no staff in Sydney. They also tagged my luggage to the wrong passenger and it was an ordeal to get it back once they found it. Talk about a security breach !! Never fly them again !!! Will be sending info to media!! Paid $320 for extra baggage fees coming from an Air Canada business flight ticket with carry-on - they didn't care!! Kelta at ck in only cared about charging us and when I told her to put the bags in my name she said don't tell me how to do my job I know - and then bag is in another person's name and he had to leave asap in Sydney and it was an ordeal to get report done!! They charge for coffee on board and flight attendants were also rude!! Where is the customer service? Terrible !!"

Pros: "Definitely no frills. Pay for coffee? No water?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge me for a luggage $230.00 for 19 kg. It's a rob. The plane was late.No offer for a glass of water.Staff not to much friendly"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They left my luggage in Auckland (I live in Dallas) AFTER forcing me to pack everything into it due to the dumbest "1 carry on" rule I've ever heard. The check in counter was severely understaffed. The whole experience was terrible and it was literally my first experience."

Cons: "On time"

Cons: "Extremely disappointed in this airline. Got to the airport for my flight from Auckland to Sydney to discover my checked bag for my flight had been canceled on my ticket and then was forced to pay $116 USD to check one bag for a 3 hour flight because of a mistake made by THEIR system! When I asked if there was any other options I was told to make my bag lighter for carry on by abandoning some of my belongings or that I needed to pay the fee. None of the staff was willing to even check if there was any other option or to look into why my baggage allowance mysteriously disappeared off my ticket. God help anyone who can't afford to pay this ridiculous "airport baggage fee", they'll be left stranded. Jetstar is obviously more interested in profits than their customers. I will NEVER fly with this "airline" again!"

Cons: "plane was half hour late leaving because JetStar does not allow enough time for turn arounds from plane arriving from elsewhere. That said, the pilot did do his best to catch up for lost time once in the air."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"

Cons: "There was no entertainment"

Pros: "That we landed"

Cons: "They offered to forward my baggage to my final destination and it got delayed for 4 days."

Cons: "Terrible exchange rate and high transaction costs for food puchases made on plane."

Cons: "The flight was delayed then check in staff were rude"

Pros: "I liked that Jetstar communicated with me and kept me informed about what was happening with my flights. I liked that the Jetstar staff in Sydney helped me to get a room for the night, the hotel people were helpful and friendly, the shuttle bus drivers were helpful and friendly. I liked that Qantas helped me transfer my Jetstar cancelled flight to QF148, so I was able to fly Auck to SYD. I did like that Jetstar provided free in-flight entertainment to all passengers after the flight form SYD - DPS was dallied 3 hours on departure."
Cons: "I didn't like that my Jetstar flight was cancelled and I missed my connecting flight to Denpasar. I didn't like that I lost a whole day of my holiday due to the flight cancellation, I missed my pick up transfer from DPS airport to my hotel in Ubud late at night, and I was not refunded my night's booked accomodation at my Ubud hotel. I didn't like that I had to go through immigration, pick up my baggage in SYD before I could get to the Jetstar counter to connect with my flight to DPS. because of this delay I missed my connecting flight. I did not like that My one day delayed connecting flight from SYD to DPS was delayed a further 3 hours departing from Sydney."

Pros: "Pilot did a great job ensuring the flight arrived on time despite the initial delay not within their control. Food was good."
Cons: "Passengers reclined seats well before seat belt sign was off and plane had barely taken off! I think clear instructions need to be communicated to prevent such behaviour. Seats were reclined throughout meal service, this is not the case on other airlines. Bag handlers took forever to commence delivering bags to conveyor. I was highly concerned I would miss my connecting flight."
