The best, Qatar Airways is incompatible

great

Cons: "My baggage got missing"
Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."
Cons: "Qatar Air! So refreshing to have good service just when I thought it was gone in this "modern" world..."
Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "The layover was hell. They put me in a warehouse with wooden benches for beds. Never again"
Cons: "Horrible service. The US part of the journey was fine but the rest was aweful."
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
Cons: "My meal preference was not available."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Excellent overall"
Cons: "LAX boarding was chaotic I think they should announce First people with disabilities Then Business class After that board Economy class from last rows"
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"
Pros: "quick"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The treatment"
Cons: "It was too late"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Preboarding area had no bathrooms. Boarding process was erratic with conflicting calls for zones. Discomfort with people bumping you as they walked down the aisle..toilets unkempt. Exit row USB port misaligned with seating area, so my USB cable bent and broke."
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."
Pros: "Service great and on time"
Cons: "Lounge in Cape Town was bad."
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "My family was happy with the service provided by Qatar airline."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "Crews and quality of food was great"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall service excellent"
Cons: "Seating... our seating was changed so we did not sit how we would like"
Cons: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Qatar airways equipment very good."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "When it was time to leave Doha, Qatar there was a massive delay which caused us to be late for any upcoming transfer in BKK. That told me that my would be delivered the next day. I am currently trying to figure out whether they have my bags or not."
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal. Felt safe and cared fir on flight."
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline. Not airlines fault but took too long to get yo terminal at IAD Leg room a little tight in economy of 777"
Pros: "Flights out of and to Philadelphia cuts out the whole traveling to and from NY or DC. This is a big plus for me since I live in Delaware."
Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."
Pros: "More comfortable than expected."
Cons: "Could not check in online or at the kiosk (the flight was part of an overall ticket bought on Air New Zealand). Only one checked bag per ticket, but we had an extra bag because of the international legs. An employee got us checked in, bags tagged, and convinced us to carry on one more bag."
Pros: "an amazing flying experience with pleasant crews who served their customers with hearts and their lovely smiles!"
Pros: "Crew were great - happy & fun. Seats 19B & C"
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "More than a biscuit for lunch"
Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."
Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"
Pros: "Food was nice, could have been a little bigger. Staff were friendly ... well, except one lady."
Cons: "expected to need the Qantas entertainment app, so didn't pick up headphones from the terminal before departure. However, it was an older plane with seat back TVs (and less choice)."
Cons: "The entertaimnet headset socket was faulty and I had to hold the jack in a specific way so I could hear the vocal channels. Sometimes it just dropped out all together. Tried multiple headsets but having the socket and jack on the inside of the armrest where it was so easily knocked by you leg was so incredibly stupid and made it hard to get comfortable or move position in the seat. First time I've ever seen this on a plane. Ok, so Qantas got us there safely but the inflight movies its what makes it bearable."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "4 flights in 2 weeks Melbourne Cairns return & Melbourne Coolangatta return. Great staff induction from Qantas all flights were excellent"
Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"
Pros: "Nice friendly staff."
Cons: "The snack provided was very unhealthy, and they did not have any alcohol available."
Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"
Cons: "Little more leg room required"
Cons: "Seated in middle seat next to a very large and very smelly person I could hardly move and certainly not attlempt to eat or drink . Airlines do need to address this situation with people who are large . Non existent entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"
Pros: "Singapore airline best for Australia"
Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."
Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
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."
Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"
Pros: "I liked the service, the friendly cabin crews. The food was good. We had a bit of turbulence on the way but all good. Thank you QF"
Cons: "On this particular flight, we had to wait like 30 minutes to get our baggage. Maybe because of the rain but otherwise all was good. Thank you QF"

Pros: "I liked everything from crew to the plane"

Pros: "Crew was amazingly helpful in all my enquiries"
Cons: "All amazing nothing to complain about it"
Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "The crew were so so friendly, as are most Australians, I've come to learn. I love the complimentary adult beverages!"
Cons: "I have no complaints that are unique to Qantas and this flight (cramped leg room, okay ish food, etc.)."
Pros: "I was accommodated excellently as I required wheelchair access and ease and comfort as I was recovering from major surgery. The return seating in upper level was most appreciated . A big thanks to the cabin crew especially Oscar."
Cons: "When I originally had to call to organise seating requirements and wheelchair access, I was in hold for 1.5 hours before I spoke to someone ."
Pros: "Thank you for keeping track of our luggage throughout the massive delays and rebookings."
Cons: "Gate staff at all locations seemed stressed, under informed and overwhelmed."
Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat in last row very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."
Pros: "Good meal - pasta"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Pros: "Didn't eat anything over airline food as it was my 3rd flight to get home to Melbourne"
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
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."
Cons: "Do you really need to be provided with a meal at 11pm just after departure? A decent snack pack would be a better get, and allow people to get to sleep."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold even with multiple layers and a blanket"
Pros: "Another successful mission with QantasI like the overall experience and the way that Qantas recognise my platinum status it's always a great pleasure to fly to mystically and internationally with Qantas"
Cons: "I think the stream the in-flight entertainment is a bit of a cheat and then I should go back to providing entertainment those messages without a laptop or iPad"
Pros: "Got away on time"
Cons: "No wifi on board or entertainment"
Pros: "I got alive to my destination"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. Next flight was full. The flight I was booked on got delayed because it was raining heavy in Brisbane... No food or coffee was offered during the whole experience."
Pros: "They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged"
Pros: "Communication was not existent"
Cons: "I find the communication about late flights not existent. This one only left a few mins late but if we check in late we get no refund and no boarding. Should go both ways."
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "a screen at the seat."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "15 hour flight and the crew walked up and down the isle every 3-4 minutes shining a flashlight in your face and over all the seats. I asked if this would continue all night and they said yes as it’s how they check on drunk passengers etc and that it was part of the aircraft safety. Was very intrusive and impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Good boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Seat and legroom"
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Trip was pretty standard."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, as soon as we landed in Melbourne, the plane had to shut down on the tarmac which then meant I missed my connecting flight and had to wait in the airport for 6 hours until the next flight. All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"
Cons: "I could not check in, my e-ticket was deemed voided. Called BYOJet, could not fix. Got full refund because 100% not my fault."
Pros: "Staff,service, ease of boarding"
Cons: "Small space leg room, lack of content on entertainment"
Pros: "Departed on time. Arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Leg room - very cramped"
Pros: "Crew is always lovely"
Cons: "The delay and then needing to fly low and take longer to reach destination But I’m saying that I understand it was unavoidable and necessary Just an inconvenience"
Pros: "Information on departure delays was forthcoming"
Cons: "The checkin machine kept giving me my fellow travelor boarding pass and not one for me."
Cons: "Loved every bit"
Pros: "did not load bags"
Cons: "did not load bags and didnt tell us. we had to find out ourselves and then missed our connection because they were soooooooooo slow doing paperwork. they only had an agent who wasnt that interested. Godd luck with getting any compensation!! Virgin's response was that this is normal and some flights have too much weight so not all bags are loaded and they dont tell the people concerned"
Pros: "although late leaving we made up a bit of time."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy"
Cons: "Un-personal and clinical in approach to guests...especially as we are paying guests! Had just returned from overseas, flying Qantas and Singapore airlines.... virgin was decades away."
Cons: "Terrible take off and landing. No screen on seat back. Crew handling of problems not good. Ground crew not ready. No advice of 25 min late arrival. Worst flight by Virgin ever."
Pros: "Nice crew and fast and smooth flight"
Cons: "Didn't go much on the snack food!"
Pros: "On-time, friendly crew, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food - please don't advertise that you will feed us when all the food is is a tiny packet of pretzels."
Pros: "Staff where great, plane was clean, and we left on time"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Pros: "We paid for Premium Seating- not quite Business Class, but supposedly like Business on a domestic flight. Boarding was great, right after business. We had problems with my seating, but the crew did everything they could to amend the issues. The crew was wonderful and really took great care of us."
Cons: "Right away we found out my chair was broken, and couldn't recline. Also, we had been placed in the first row of Premium and there are no automatic footrests. The crew has to bring those out. But there weren't any on board the plane at all. And since I'm only 5'2" tall, my feet don't reach the floor, causing blood circulation to be cut off in my legs from the pressure of hanging on the seat. No recline for 12+ hours, and no foot rest = a lot of pain and discomfort. I've been to the doctor twice since arriving home and am still in pain."
Pros: "Had a window seat with great views of the countryside- 2 hours seemed to pass quickly and the crew were good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Long queue in the toilet"
Pros: "Very helpful"
Cons: "Pleasant"
Pros: "I fell asleep on the way to Mackay and the crew placed snacks out for me so I didn't miss out when I woke up, they read my signals and ensured I was looked after. Thanks & Merry Christmas"
Cons: "30 minutes delayed due to errors in paperwork."
Pros: "It was a good flight. Arrived on time"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "In finish line, that media muchine not working"
Pros: "Food was terrible!"
Pros: "The crew - smiling, friendly and seemed to like their jobs"
Cons: "Food - meusli bar again!"
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"
Pros: "Comfortable short flight"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay and was told they had to wait for the paint to dry????"
Pros: "Check in staff most helpful,traveling with oversize lougage,surf board and kites along with carry on.no fuss and searched seating so l had a spear seat on red trip home.thanks"
Pros: "Great crew and good service."
Cons: "Two things - I dont like is the size of the seats. They are far too small. Most people are relatively big these days and when you sit next to a large person or between two large people the whole flight is so uncomfortable. The other thing is the air vents - no where near enough air coming through those - please fix :("
Pros: "It was an enjoyable flight and we were well looked after by the staff"
Cons: "Difficulty in correcting name on ticket"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was put on another flight 1 hour 20min later, this meant having to rush. I bought the tickets based on time, and did not expect to have to run"
Pros: "It was a very bumpy flight due to the 100km/h+ wind in Melbourne that day. The landing was nice and easy in such bad weather. The cabin gave the pilots a round of applause."
Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Left late."
Pros: "Flight crew were great."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."
Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off. Was also told the flight was being held, then when I arrived at the desk was told my bags wouldn't make it on the plane."
Pros: "I was very pleased and will continue to book with you."
Cons: "The PRICE!!!! with my favourite airline"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."
Pros: "On time & comfortable, with reasonable food."
Cons: "Service from flight attendants wasn't as friendly as usual."
Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."
Pros: "The crew were not particularly friendly. They were somewhat abrupt."
Cons: "The crew’s attitude to passengers and manner of communication. The flight was delayed by about 20 to 25 minutes but there were no announcements about it or apologies for the inconvenience."
Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":)"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "Lack of common sense by passengers with which door they should be using when boarding the flight. Crew may want to emphasis their directions more."
Pros: "Chic muffin"
Cons: "LATELATELATELATE"
Cons: "Flight was delayed .... it’s always delayed!!!! I just gate this airline but sometimes there just is no choice !"
Pros: "The food was decent, plane was delayed and we flew business. It would’ve been good if they brought over some more drinks during the delay. Maybe they should’ve started preparing the supper meals on the ground too so they were ready to go when we finally took off just because it was a red eye flight of just 5 hours and it would have made much more sense to allow us more sleep time."
Cons: "The seats in business are totally weird. There is a metal foot rest that’s quite common in premium economy but the stretch seemed very short. I’m a short guy and I found my feet hanging over this bar which was uncomfortable. Also the pitch of the seat and short seat made both my partner and I slide down the seat. Perhaps the seats Jet star selects for its business could have calf rests that are located higher up so our legs are elevated more like in a chaise lounge or hammock for don’t slide down. The absolute worst thing about Jetstar flights are the passengers. The lowest common denominator Australians book budget airlines (especially Jetstar) and they rush the gate, over pack their 7kg of carryon, they are rough and loud and have little control of their children. They don’t know the difference beteeen inside and outside voices and speaking to someone face to face instead of shouting from a distance. Perhaps Jetstar should have a flying etiquette email and in seat card to remind people of how to behave. One braided head wench was berating the poor guy checking tickets at the gate who asked her to finish her water as a condition of EVERY AIRLINE and AIRPORT. He didn’t deserve her uneducated rudeness."
Pros: "It took off and landed"
Cons: "Rude Jetstar staff at Coolingatta found we had 4 items weighing 15.5 kg instead of 14 and wanted to charge us $60 to load a bag on plane. Last Jetstar flight for me"
Pros: "The crew were great. Very clear on the p.a. System and good service."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and horribly cramped. No shaping to support your back and the tray table crushed my stomach and I am quite slim. Goodness knows how big people cope. We recently did a round The world trip with 11 flights and none were as bad as this."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment facilities or capabilities"
Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"
Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Appalling service got a text about 20 hours before departure cancelling the flight. Alternatives totally unsuitable. 1am or 5 am when I had a daytime flight"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The 6 hour delay. The price of food"
Pros: "Staff was very polite it is just a shame that the airline don’t get the same standard of results the staff get."
Cons: "No vegan food options, No adjustable head rest, No entertainment, Will not choose to fly with them again."
Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."
Pros: "Very smooth flight and the best landing ever! did not feel or know we had touched down."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable Baggage rules - I overpaid for baggage in advance Carry on weight should be reconsidered (limit should increase)"
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."
Pros: "Steward tried to make most of bad thing Flight left late"
Cons: "Flight left late Was Bali flight filled up with domestic passengers Crew not allowed to accept legal tender Seat broken, footrest permanently out partially Leg room compromised by things on floor Magazines and safety card dirty and pages stuck together Business not really business In Melbourne Long queues to get out. Line up for id. Line up again to surrender boarding pass. No special lines for business in Melbourne Took an hour and a half to get out of airport."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Staff unfriendly, it helpful... more interested in sell you more things than those of us that have bought tickets. They need to smile a bit more"
Pros: "Jack at the customer service desk dealt with my problem in the perfect professional manner. He didn't stop until he found a solution for me. I was very impressed with this airline"
Pros: "My seat 12F...."
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "the fact that my flight was pushed back. no big deal, but would have been nice if it was on time."
Cons: "Hardly any staff, we had to load & check in our own bags. The mechanical baggage belt was initially not working so the lines of people waiting grew. There was no-one to explain what we had to do so we only printed our boarding passes, and didnt realise we had to ALSO print baggage labels, so we consequently lost our place in the queue. NOT HAPPY!"
Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."
Pros: "Smooth transition for daughter who needed assistance to board"
Cons: "Having to sit apart especially when there were vacant seats"
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: "Smell of sewage throughout flight."
Cons: "Children 12 and 10 booked online to fly to Melbourne for Easter. I rang the call centre to ensure they could travel together unaccompanied, as website was not clear. I was advised they could, and because I was concerned I asked this be noted on our booking so we wouldn't have any issues at the gate. I was reassured the children could travel and they made a note as requested. Turn up for our flight today and at the gate after saying goodbye to my children, they're stopped from entering the plane and I'm told they can't travel, despite the advice I received from the call centre and the note on our booking showing we were given this advice. We did everything right to make sure we could travel, just to be refused at the gate. Disgusting."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "You should be able to offer at least some chips or something small for free"
Pros: "it was only a short flight"
Cons: "delayed flight and having to take time to get every piece of carry on luggage weighed - having to move 1 kg from one suitcase to another when we were traveling together fro goodness sake"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was informed 5 days in advance that my mid morning flight was cancelled due to "engineering reasons" via an unapologetic and unhelpful email. The burden was on me to reschedule (to a very inconvenient ultra early departure), and I had to twist the customer service fellow's arm to give me a beverage voucher in compensation. Then, when boarding I was mugged for my back pack. 50$ because it was over their utterly disingenuous 7kg "safety limit". It's not a safety rule - the CAA sets that. It's a revenue rule."
Pros: "Slightly better pricing than other airlines"
Cons: "Very unclear about baggage allowance and other hidden costs Unable to buy reasonable meals without pre-ordering Very small seats No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Both departure and arrival time were punctual Staff were professional"
Cons: "Dinner was full of weird tasting tomato sauce Breakfast was comprised of all sugar including super sweet sugary drink and banana cake"
Pros: "I didn't get to fly as I had 3 brain surgeries in NY in May last year and I got sick and couldn't fly so I rang and no one could help me save the tickets so I'm very disappointed and won't use this app again. I have used this app so many times flying to America and back to Tasmania and this is how I was treated after 4 phone calls begging for help as it was the first trip my son and I were going alone as I hadn't seen him for two years. Qantas paid for my airfares to come home after surgery and I'll stay with them from now on"
Cons: "5th time out of 7 times I've used Jetstar that the flight has been cancelled. At least this time I was fast enough to rebook for the next day. And then what happens? They delay that flight by 12hrs. These jokers should not be allowed to take money for a service they can rarely provide."
Pros: "All"
Pros: "Only good point was we were able to book thru KAYAK for a reasonable price."
Cons: "flight was delayed which appears the norm with Jetstar.!!! Ridiculous walking distance to get to and from at Melbourne end!!!! Pity the elderly and infirm!!! You get nothing for your money EVERYTHING is EXTRA cost and expensive. From baggage to basic snacks, if you are silly enough to buy. Not even a radio outlet. Seats are hard and uncomfortable, but the "icing on the cake", is the removal of the pockets behind the seats to make the leg room look more, so you now have nowhere to put a water bottle or a drink down. JETSTAR/QANTAS should be very (proud) ashamed of themselves. By the way has anyone noticed the prospective destruction of the iconic Kangaroo symbol on QANTAS planes known all over the world as AUSTRALIAN, that the Irish CEO of Qantas is happily removing at enormous cost, over the next months to be replaced by an indescribable symbol, that is so similar to CHINA AIRLINES, it is not funny. Takeover in the wind?No wonder QANTAS is so expensive and its cheaper arm JETSTAR are cut to the bone. Staff can only do so much."
Pros: "Never purchased these two items. Can't rate. But you score does not allow to indicate neutral."
Pros: "The cabine crew"
Cons: "40 mn delay on a 3h45 flight is a little bit too much. Airplane not really comfortable and noisy. But that is what low cost means, right?!"
Pros: "Great to have a direct flight from Melbourn to Hawaii - cuts out a big chunk of transit time in Sydney."
Cons: "Pre-booked meals were on the small side, and the website gave very limited options (like veg or non-veg) - not much help if you're gluten intolerant. Why can't they just show their onboard menu for selection?"
Cons: "Flights were delayed each direction."
Pros: "Happy with the whole process, all too easy"
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable as the Padding wasn't attached to the seat"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
