I didn't like that there were many hidden costs. You don't even get a soft drink without paying for it. The usual practice for international travel is to allow one checked bag free, not so with Jetstar. We booked the ticket because of the cost and it ended up costing more than if we would have booked on a better airline like Air New Zealand.

Aafriendly staff, very friendly and informative pilots on the communication side.

I thoght i had free check inluggage, but was told that ihave to pay $160 each for my daughter and I. So I paid $320 for the two luggages which would normally cost $40. I just think its not right to jcharge six times as much,

Customer service and ticket counter staff pleasant--that's it. Everything else disappointing -- will not fly them again -- Air New Zealand or Quantas only; don't know about United Emirates; paid $100 for baggage greater than 7K on international travel -- only $50 for domestic travel -- beware!! Must get luggage allowance on line at least 4 hours in advance of departure. Seats are tighter than any U.S. carrier including Spirit and Frontier. Kayak should somehow warn passengers unfamiliar with Jetstar airlines policy!!!

Cheap price

Very little leg room. The bottom of each seat back was just one layer of (fake) leather: I could constantly feel the knees of the person behind me hitting my posterior. I've never seen a seat configuration like this before. Other things were expected for a low coster: checked-in bags cost money, there is no free food and even coffee is for sale. But paper thin seats were not.

Price was competitive.

Check in crew late arrival at gate made passengers uncomfortable, uneasy and rushed during gate check in Even drinks (coffee, water, juice, soda) were an extra cost In seat entertainment was expensive ($10) Seats were very crowded, no space even to read if the person in front of you reclined.

Nothing to like about this flight.

We were charged $320 for 2 bags. We had no idea we had to buy a ticket for our luggage that cost more than our own tickets... We checked in 2:30 hour prior and were told if 3:00 hours prior we would have been able to buy luggage ticket for a lot less... but it could not be done from the airport anyway... one excuse after another... terrible service. Staff unwilling to help and it was a long wait at the counter as well because they did not want to deal with our bags. What kind of business is this? How more ridiculous can it get? We were told it is low cost... well, so is the staff as it seems they are equally unhappy. Unacceptable.

Ít’s a terrible experience with Jetstar!

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

We waited 45 minutes for a passenger that was late.. Since when did a plain full of two hundred people wait for one idiot that couldn't make it there on time. He arrives, we begin to push back. Captain announcement, "We have been requested to go back to the gate, unsure as to why". We get back, turns out the first officer has exceeded his flying hours. I sincerely hope I never end up on a Jetstar flight ever again.

Don't fall for the scam where Kayak doesn't redirect you to the airline site, but rather has you book the flight within the Kayak site. They charge you a $10US surcharge on top of the flight cost. You can just as easily type in the airline site and book (for the same cost) without paying Kayak $10. It's not well disclosed and you can google all the complaints about Travelfuson (Kayak owner) online.

Mediocre 2.0

Nothing to like about this flight.

We were charged $320 for 2 bags. We had no idea we had to buy a ticket for our luggage that cost more than our own tickets... We checked in 2:30 hour prior and were told if 3:00 hours prior we would have been able to buy luggage ticket for a lot less... but it could not be done from the airport anyway... one excuse after another... terrible service. Staff unwilling to help and it was a long wait at the counter as well because they did not want to deal with our bags. What kind of business is this? How more ridiculous can it get? We were told it is low cost... well, so is the staff as it seems they are equally unhappy. Unacceptable.

Customer service and ticket counter staff pleasant--that's it. Everything else disappointing -- will not fly them again -- Air New Zealand or Quantas only; don't know about United Emirates; paid $100 for baggage greater than 7K on international travel -- only $50 for domestic travel -- beware!! Must get luggage allowance on line at least 4 hours in advance of departure. Seats are tighter than any U.S. carrier including Spirit and Frontier. Kayak should somehow warn passengers unfamiliar with Jetstar airlines policy!!!

Don't fall for the scam where Kayak doesn't redirect you to the airline site, but rather has you book the flight within the Kayak site. They charge you a $10US surcharge on top of the flight cost. You can just as easily type in the airline site and book (for the same cost) without paying Kayak $10. It's not well disclosed and you can google all the complaints about Travelfuson (Kayak owner) online.

I didn't like that there were many hidden costs. You don't even get a soft drink without paying for it. The usual practice for international travel is to allow one checked bag free, not so with Jetstar. We booked the ticket because of the cost and it ended up costing more than if we would have booked on a better airline like Air New Zealand.

Ít’s a terrible experience with Jetstar!

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

Cheap price

Very little leg room. The bottom of each seat back was just one layer of (fake) leather: I could constantly feel the knees of the person behind me hitting my posterior. I've never seen a seat configuration like this before. Other things were expected for a low coster: checked-in bags cost money, there is no free food and even coffee is for sale. But paper thin seats were not.

Aafriendly staff, very friendly and informative pilots on the communication side.

I thoght i had free check inluggage, but was told that ihave to pay $160 each for my daughter and I. So I paid $320 for the two luggages which would normally cost $40. I just think its not right to jcharge six times as much,

We waited 45 minutes for a passenger that was late.. Since when did a plain full of two hundred people wait for one idiot that couldn't make it there on time. He arrives, we begin to push back. Captain announcement, "We have been requested to go back to the gate, unsure as to why". We get back, turns out the first officer has exceeded his flying hours. I sincerely hope I never end up on a Jetstar flight ever again.

Didn't crash

Misleading baggage policy cost additional $150 for a single bag at check in. Agent unwilling to find a different fare / baggage rate. On board they charge everything. Seats uncomfortable, felt passenger behind knees into my back. Overall terrible, cheap airline.

Efficient boarding.

NO legroom in standard seats. I'm 6' tall and my knees touched the seat in front of me when seated all the way back in the seat. Closest spaced seating I've seen on an airline.

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.
