Also they overcharged me by $50 to process my visa application before I was allowed to check in.

Pros: Roomy seats, modern entertainment tech although movie choices limited

Cons: Honestly the weight limits for carryon is extraordinarily stressful and they Charge for then checking it if even 1 kg over! Would not fly again with them for this reason. Qantas has the customer first philosophy in motion! By the time you pay luggage fees, seat & meal fees, overweight carryon luggage fees, Qantas a better deal a less hassle.

Okay 5.0

Pros: Seating was fine.

Cons: The Honolulu AP facility at midnight was completely closed down with the exception of Starbucks. There were only 2 drinking fountains in the whole place and required a search to locate them. A fellow passenger warned us that Jet Star does not even supply passengers with drinking water so I filled a bottle from one of the fountains. We discovered that Jet Star charges for every kilo of checked luggage unlike any other time I have made this flight with different airlines. I would advise anyone to think twice about using this airlines for any flights longer than 4 hours because your going to be pretty hungry and thirsty unless you want to pay $4 for 6 ounces of water. Make sure you have all the baggage costs figured into your ticket charge when you purchase a ticket from these cheapskates and make sure you carry on what you need to drink and eat. The food looked terrible.

Cons: It’s a long flight but that can’t be helped. Economy seats are really cramped and so I paid $190 for more leg room on the way back. Would highly recommend. I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line.

Okay 4.0

Cons: Jetstar is always a little subpar. food and drink are not included even though it's international and the food for purchase was not very good anyhow. Entertainment was also extra and the selection was poor. flights were delayed and rerouted. They got us there, but with no frills at all.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Seat was springy and broken, purser was rude and crew were not friendly or happy to work. Charging for tea, coffee and giving free tap water from a Crystal Geyser bottle refilled was a joke. Way to nickel and dime and jeopardize our health with bacteria filled water that is not in a sealed bottle.

Cons: Movies was limited and ok for $10. That was the only thing semi good about this 11 hour ordeal.

Mediocre 3.6

Cons: Flight was delayed by 45 minutes due to **insert one of many excuses here** and then Jetstar misplaced my luggage ( I arrived at 3 pm into Melbourne and my luggage arrived 10.30pm so I spent one of my two nights waiting for the bag to show up)

Cons: Entertainment system needs the ability to have closed captions in English. It’s in Chinese all the time—can’t even turn it off. The sound system is very poor so captions would help.

Good 6.0

Pros: I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken.

Cons: See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress.

Cons: Through the course of the kayak purchase process, there was never the option to pay for checked bags. With Jetstar, this means paying double later. Better to book through Jetstar direct once you have the flight details.

Okay 4.3

Pros: The staff were friendly

Cons: Some policies were not made clear before I arrived to check in. No skateboards as a carry-on. I’ve never had a problem before until Jetstar. Also they overcharged me by $50 to process my visa application before I was allowed to check in. The visa cost $20, Jetstar charged me $70 and would not allow me to apply for the visa on my own at the time of check-in.

MEL
Good 7.3

Pros: Base price for flight was insanely cheap, booked six months in advance.

Cons: Drastically different bag weight requirements than my connecting flight meant I had to shuffle everything around to meet the carry-on limits, then pay $100+ as my check bag went up two levels. Even anticipating this, it still cost double what I was expecting; must have been the difference between advance payment and day-of rates, but the degree of difference in cost left me feeling swindled.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
