Top airlines flying Sydney Kingsford Smith to Coolangatta Gold Coast
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew were amazing, food was delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed with no explanation, we sat once boarded waiting to take off not knowing what the further delay was, ended up arriving and clearing customs an hour behind schedule. This is becoming more common with my flights with Virgin Australia."
Cons: "Missed my flight due to lost luggage"
Pros: "The service on board was excellent and the flight atendants really nice"
Pros: "Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home."
Cons: "Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip."
Cons: "No organization in check in process. Staff unfriendly and unhelpful. No control over situation."
Pros: "Happy hour Is great marketing move for us tired working people to start our journey Like flights used to be"
Pros: "Crew was good, and water was served frequently."
Cons: "Got out late from Sydney and got stuck in a holding pattern in Bali. We had to take a shuttle to and from the plane was was cramped with screaming children. Due to the delay we got stuck at immigration for 50min. We weren’t told about the entertainment until already on the plane when we couldn’t download the app."

Cons: "We arrived at the gate early and they made us move to another area. There was no reason for this since our flight was the next flight.

Pros: "overall excellent service"

Cons: "Turbulence and I slept through to beverage/snack service"
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Cons: "nothing specific"

Cons: "The first row in economy does not have armrests that raise. I'd prefer to be provided seats further back that have armrests that raise."
Pros: "Nothing, per say"
Cons: "I booked flights AND paid for seat locations. Quantas switched all to better fit their needs, including separating us on two different flights (we almost missed one). Every other aspect was as poor as any flight I have been on...never again."
Pros: "Like Virgin Australia's inflight entertainment app which works on board."
Cons: "Long lines for baggage drop in Sydney Domestic airport. That airport needs some improvement."
Pros: "It was a very welcoming experience from the flight crew"

Pros: "The lounge in Melbourne and Sydney are excellent."
Pros: "Service is always wonderful!!"
Cons: "Kayak or virgin have offered no assistance, just that the flight was cancelled.. very poor on both sides. Bit of a shame seeing as you are paying good money for a service. Will be thinking again when choosing my flights"
Pros: "seats comfortable, boarding efficient, check baggage arrived quickly, staff friendly"
Pros: "Good crew, very friendly. Went above and beyond to find a passenger at baggage claim who left something on board."
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed."
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy."
Cons: "I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in."
Pros: "business seats did not reclined ..... if i knew that not buying jetstar"
Cons: "Ok so. With ticket purchase you only get a carry on bag in economy. To pay for a checked 15kg bag is $68, but only if you pay ahead of time. If you pay at the counter it will cost you $100. The woman at our gate was completely alone, and clearly frustrated by the situation and kept radio-ing for information about where the rest of her crew was. They are flying 787 Dreamliner now and just squeezing as many people as they can on them. I am a 5’10” female and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. Want to recline your seat? Go ahead, but the bottom of the seat now slides forward as well to compensate for the lack of space. So if you’re tall like myself, you can’t recline your seat because it forces your knees further into the seat in front of you. Lastly, they have this ‘amazing entertainment service’. It’s $8 to watch a movie or play a game of solitaire. Such a scam. Water is the only drink included and the power outlet in my seat didn’t work. They are exactly what they have always been, but dressed up nicer, cheap and crappy airline looking to make as much money as possible. Won’t be flying with them again. For the money I paid to check a bag plus ticket cost, I could have flown a much nicer airline. will do next time!"
Pros: "Jetstar staff we able to change all my flight details"
Cons: "Better communication between Jetstar and passages as it was me who notified them that I would miss my connecting flight due to the rescheduled departure of my original flight from Melbourne to Sydney."
Cons: "Jetstar is the worst airline around. Its absolutely ridiculous that they charge you 10X more for checked luggage at airport check-in. When I booked my flight 5 months in advance, I didn't see the option of buying luggage (and also didn't think it mattered at the time because normal airlines like Delta, United, etc. charge the same rate no matter when you decide). Thank goodness I knew to buy luggage before getting to the airport but was still charge $60 AUD (when it would have only been $35 if I did it when I originally booked). And it would have been over $150 if I waited for the airport. WHO THE F CARES WHEN I DECIDE TO CHECK A BAG??? YOU STILL HAVE TO GO TO THE COUNTER NO MATTER WHAT. Jetstar is such a low class airline. Then they wanted to weigh my carry-on which was 9kilo (2k over the limit)... full of all camera gear. The guy literally started yelling at me, made me feel so uncomfortable, and my eyes began to water. He was screaming to another woman in front of everyone that I was WAY over the weight limit and was to be charged $210. He was extremely aggressive. (This was a moment I wish I would have whipped out my phone and took a video... would have gone viral). The woman wasn't any better either. At first she was really aggressive and I hadn't said a word. I just watched them react as if I brought a weapon. She raised her voice at me yelling about the stupid luggage being too heavy.... and at that point I told her that she needed to lower her voice and talk to me like a human (let alone a customer). At that point she did realize that she was being ridiculous and lowered her voice (I might even give her the benefit of the doubt and say the guy may have rattled her). I explained to her that I was carrying expensive camera gear and batteries (which you cannot put in checked luggage) and that I'd be happy to put it in the checked bag (especially since I had extra kilos that I hadn't used). She said I would need to sign a waiver exempting them from being responsible if anything was stolen from my bag. I politely said absolutely not. If you cannot get my luggage to my destination safely then I would happily not get on the plane and walk over to the Air New Zealand desk and buy a ticket. At that point she looked me up and saw how much I flew with them and then decided to let me on the plane. Which mind you, the plane was 75% EMPTY. After all that. Geez. Never again Jetstar. Never again."
Pros: "Few crew members who went out of their way to ease our frustration"
Cons: "Surprise expenses Most people who buy directly through the Jetstar website add baggage allowance. You don't get this option when buying on Kayak. Poor connection and wait time The long layover was annoying, and proved costly, too. You need to buy a Visa in Australia if your layover is longer than 8 hours. Kayak doesn't warn you about this, and so you have to collect your baggage, go through customs, and buy a Visa. In sum, Kayak shouldn't allow you to purchasing strings-attached tickets from this airline."
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "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."
Cons: "There are no complimentary snacks. Also, we had to pay for the movies. I wish the entertainment was free like on all other airlines."
Pros: "The plane was relatively new."
Cons: "Boarding was late. Food selection was poor Entertainment choices were slim And obviously charging for luggage and food sucks."
Pros: "The check-in woman was a gem! Due to Australia's strict carry-on policy - one item, period - I had to repack my luggage, which contained a fragie printer that had been in my carry-on when I could have it AND a computer bag. The Jet Star allowed two checked pieces, and the agent gave me all the time I needed to make the changes. She then marked the bag fragile, and sent me to the oversize/fragile bay with it. It arrived in PNG rattled, but working normally.The woman was a peach!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "Horrible airline. Can't understand the reservation people. Misleading on what you are paying for. Worst airline I've ever seen. Fly Virgin, which is much better."
Cons: "All the customer phone people speak in heavy accents you can't understand. Airline makes false statements on its website. Awful company."
Cons: "No entertainment or food at all even for long flight, all is sold individually. Even for really old movies you are charged, tv or anything at all!"
Pros: "The service was good, the staff were friendly"
Cons: "I was told I'd have a window seat for the flight and I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "Economical and value for money"
Cons: "We couldn't check in until an hour before boarding and weren't allowed to take the 2 carry-on bags each as advertised. Had to repack quickly to get the things that had to be hand carried (CPAP's, cameras, medicines, etc.) into the backpacks and then got charged $28/bag for the 2 bags that should have been carry-on. Unimpressed."
Pros: "They crew was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I felt like I had to pay for so many things as upgrades. To have an aisle seat, I had to pay extra. To take one bag that was less than 20 k, I had to pay extra. I paid extra for in-flight entertainment. My flight from Denpasar to Sydney did not have working entertainment; however, I did not get a refund for my entertainment purchase. The flight from Sydney to Denpasar had complimentary entertainment; again, no refund for the entertainment purchase."
Cons: "The hidden baggage cost more than taking a first class flight on a different airline, normal 50lb bags traveling over seas for 2 weeks."
Pros: "The crew was efficient"
Cons: "I wasn't aware JetStar operated on a "budget" airline level worse than that of a second world country airline. Were there alcohol, movies, terrible food, bottled water, and pillows available? Yes. Did JetStar take every opportunity to charge customers for any and all services? Yes. Perhaps I should have rearranged my expectations, knowing that this was a "budget" line, but their fees for additional services were worse than AirAsia."
Cons: "Customer Service was terrible. I had issues with checking in, I was made to stand in a queue, 4 times, for the same issue. Unacceptable. I will not fly with Jet Star again if I am in Australia. I would pay double for a better experience."
Pros: "Low fares!"
Cons: "Given the low fare it was fine, Very limited choices on entertainment package."
Cons: "I booked a flight from Sydney to Bali online and was horrified to see outrageous charges for checked baggage - flight ended up costing almost double the original price. There was a no cancellation policy on the booking so I couldn't back out of the flight. When I arrived at Sydney airport the flight was delayed, then delayed again, then finally cancelled. Chaos ensued and I was stranded in Sydney airport overnight. I managed to rebook another flight that took me to Brisbane airport the next day where a new flight was scheduled to take me to Bali. This flight was also cancelled. I am now stuck in Brisbane airport and have been rescheduled AGAIN to 7 AM tomorrow. I haven't slept in 2 days. The customer service rep in the Brisbane airport was very rude and not understanding at all. I have lost money in scheduled airport pickups and hotel reservations, and have had to rebook other arrangements. I'm actually nervous to fly with this airline now, but don't trust that they will refund my money. STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE!"
Cons: "I was charged $50 per checked bag when there was no option to select check bag option through booking."
Pros: "The flight was on time and reasonably comfortable, partly because it was a short flight. No real problems. I was afraid that it may have been a mistake booking a cut-rate airline because of horrible experiences with such airlines in the USA (Allegiant, Spirit), but Jetstar is better than those airlines."
Cons: "Luggage policy is awful. Southwest Airlines has great luggage policies, and sets the standard every other airline should try to match."
Pros: "One of us was not feeling well and crew member noticed and provided help. They needed more staff at check in"
Pros: "Got me there safe"
Cons: "The seats are horrible."
Cons: "To be told at the counter before my flight that it would have cost me a lot less to pay for my luggage online. This is very frustrating."
Cons: "i was offered a refund, but I'm still waiting for this to be confirmed."
Pros: "Entertainment was worth it for 10 hour flight."
Cons: "On previous flight they wanted me to pay for water, so on return I bought a bottle to drink on flight. When I asked for a glass of ice was accused of bringing liquor onboard. When I showed the bottle of water, they stormed off and didn't return for entire flight."
Cons: "Really cheap airline, seats are very uncomfortable and crew are arrogant."
Pros: "Planes are new and nice!"
Cons: "Seat had a lump in it"
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Jetstar had great ticket prices, but if you don't prepay to check bags or get decent food, you'll be nickeled and dimed. $160 to check one bag if you don't prepay! And you can only carry on 7 kilos which is about 15 pounds, which isn't much. Otherwise, the crew was really nice and the seats pretty comfy and a nice, new plane."
Pros: "Both metatarsal flights were comfortable and smooth. I purchased better seats for just $25, since the flights were so long. The airplanes are brand new and very modern."
Cons: "Upon being tickets there was no information about pre-buying luggage, Check in was a mad house. The check on attendant was tired and already frustrated training a new coworker so she showed him how to be rude to customers...US (he later apologized for her, she never did). Luggage cost us $900 AUD for 4 back packs (more than the tickets). The flight was over 1 hour delayed. Boarding was not organized - just a free-for-all so by the time we did board there was no overhead storage. Water, soft drinks, coffee and tea were offered - for $3 to $4.50 I hated everything about this experience and I will avoid Jetstar for the rest of my life - there is too many other options to give them my patronage again."
Pros: "speedy boarding"
Cons: "flight was delayed, baggage policy wasn't clear"
Cons: "I can see why this airline is called a low cost carrier! The boarding agents to flight attendants were extremely rude. The F/A were yelling at customers and locked the restrooms. On top of it, everything has to be purchased before hand if not, they would charge you even more at the time of requesting it (from baggage weight to sodas to blankets). This is a newer aircraft and it was filthy. The toilet seat would not stay up, mold noted on the vents, and something was splattered above the window panels. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Pros: "The plane itself was really nice"
Cons: "The ticket counter process was subpar. We got to the airport over two hours before our flight and stood in line to check in for over a hour. We had to rush to get through security just to get to our flight. I was not able to check into my flight via mobile phone, which is a huge inconvenience. I'm also used to flight attendants coming through to offer items for purchase. It just seems like if you didn't prepurchase any food through them, they don't really care about you. I know it's a low cost airline, but they really do nickel and dime you for everything and the cost of check in bags are pretty pricey. If I ever go back to Sydney, I'll probably just pay the extra money and go Hawaiian or Qantas."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Check in was a snap at the Kiosk. Legroom on the plane was good."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed on board with my just purchased coffee."
Pros: "Business class check was good with agent very helpful., flight attendants were excellent, flight smooth and on time."
Cons: "Business class seats small, foot rest uncomfortable food was fair, some of the entertainment offered did not work properly."
Cons: "They lost my baggage payment fee before check in. They then charged me 200 dollars to check my bag even though I paid the fee online beforehand. I had the charge to prove it. When I called the company to discuss both charges, they refunded the pre-charge because the 200 fee was more. Avoid at all costs Also seat was unclean and flight was 1 hour delayed"
Pros: "I'm still trying to get carry on luggage. they weighed it in Honolulu and said it was fine but the stewardess in Sydney said she could tell it was too heavy by just picking it up. Still don't have it"
Pros: "Seating on exit row was spacious . Low fare ."
Cons: "Their baggage fees !! Watch out, you can really get stung ! They don't really do a good job of explaining their rules on the web site. . I had a family of three traveling and bought 20 kilos of baggage allowance each . Didn't know if we could share the weight allowance between us or not. Also was not clear you could not just purchase another bag allowance at airport , although they do say purchasing at the airport will be more expensive. Got that right !! They charge $25 a kilo for overage at the counter !! So any overage adds up fast."
Cons: "They wanted $1000 to checked 2 bags because 2 boxes were not checked. Absurd charge for what is usually free. We will never fly them again. This is their cheap way to make money."
Pros: "check in was smooth and effortless, did the online checkin and luggage drop off at the counter"
Cons: "service was hit and miss, one fa asked us to wait to pick up the finished food while she was not doing anything, while the other fa was very thoughtful and asked us if we would want to have the rubbing collected. a bumpy landing experience, maybe it was controlled by a rookie first officer rather than the captain from the decending part. 2 passengers were ill and required assistance after landing."
Pros: "Competitive rates"
Cons: "Crew was late to check-in gate and all passengers had to stand outside gate for 30-45 minutes waiting for them to show up at the last minute then were rushed to get on the flight so they could take off on time, then there was a problem with the bathroom so everyone had to sit on the plane for 20 minutes before push-back. Seats were so uncomfortable and crowded it felt like a cattle truck. First time ever paying for drinks, including water and coffee on a flight. Not worth the few dollars you save on the flight purchase. Will not fly JetStar again."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable busines class seats"
