I had 12 kg of excess baggage so was charged $400 cdn for a flight that cost $350 cdn for my seat and 20 kg . The reservation agent refused to give me my ticket back until h the excess baggage charge was paid. I boarded the 1/2 empty plane along with many, many chinese passengers carrying 2 or 3 bags, but as a foreigner, the company rules were enforced on me only.
We had to pay bag fees that cost more than our flights! Was also an international flight where bags are free on all other airlines. Finally, there was no leg room so the guy in seat behind me had his knees digging into my back the entire flight.
Bag fees not clear and totally unreasonable, no way to check in or check bags online unless you register with their nosy BIG Points. Late by 1.5 hours! Can't get ANYTHING to eat or drink without paying in local currency cash, not even water. Seats squished together and really uncomfortable. Baggage takes a long time to come out. Poor wayfinding at Kuala Lumpur Airport.
Didn't realize AAsia was a budget carrier until I experienced and asked questions. Terribly long lines and no organization at the CNX check in. Requested a wheelchair for my father but never recieved one and no explanation. We are Thai so language was definitely not a barrier. NEVER AGAIN!!
Horrible, tv not working. I asked for no vegan and they forgot to bring my food. After I mentioned, they finally brought and was vegan! Plane very unconfortable and old. Totally different than the connection place that was way less time on air.
Unusual traffic jam in Jakarta caused me and friend to miss our flight. When booking next avail flight we were ticks regardless of why we were late, zero dollars would be allowed. Note flight was scheduled for 8 PM. We left our hotel at 1600hrs for a 20 mile ride to airport- should have been plenty of travel time!
Excellent budget airline! Yes, amenities are cut out, there is little leg room, and it's cheaper to pay for your luggage when purchasing your flight ticket, but this is the point of a budget airline this keeps your flight ticket prices low. Adding on seat choices was only a few dollars more and included a delicious meal. You can purchase food and drinks/water on board. Tip: fill up a water bottle or purchase water in airport gate area before boarding plane to save money. Crew is very friendly and helpful. Flight offered purchase of Singapore SIM card with so many GBs for a great price - $15SGD.
The leg room is deplorable. My knees were continuously hitting the hard seat in front of me and going sideways wasn't even an option. I've never had this happen to me before. I'm a female and 5'9 and this is the least space I've ever had on a flight. So uncomfortable I can't imagine a long flight with this airline, which is good to know because now I will not use them for flying to Malaysia from NYC.
Also both flights were delayed by nearly an hour each.
The boarding process went well and was organized. The cabin staff was welcoming and very presentable. The seats were fine, even in economy. The uniforms on the cabin staff were attractive andnthey looked well on the girls. The staff, both male and female, were friendly and pleasant. The flight was fine, a little late, but not the fault of the airline. I would fly this airline again.
Great overall economic airline to travel with considering the price paid. I am glad to have the options to NOT pay for the food and entertainment since I never used it during a flight less than 6 hours. I am sure the food and entertainment is good for many passengers paid for them. The flight is on time, the boarding is well organized, the crew is courteous and bathroom is clean.
I lost something before boarding and a member of the Jetstar flight personnel was amazing: he went beyond the call of duty to secure my belongings with ground staff.
It offsets an easier bad experience with Jetstar I had a few months before.
Well done, Asfar!
I don't anything about JetStar. This is my second time flying with them. First time delayed 2 hours both ways. No explanation on why it is delay. No weather issues on both sides. This time it was delay 3 times and a total of 8 hours wasted in the airport. Now return flight I got noticed that it will be delay for another 4 hours. Now I don't feel confident about this airlines will ever be on time. They might hit me with more delays. I hope not.
I don't like that there is no explanation on the delay and their only explanation is operation requirement. What does that mean? Does not explain anything. You pay cheap flight u get headaches. Next time I pay more for better reliable service. Jet Star I told everyone not to fly with your company again. It is terrible experience.
