Pros: I liked the entertainment that's it lol

Cons: Didn't like the delayed flight at all which had us literally running for our connecting flight which meant we didn't have time to eat after a 10 hour flight which had the most horrible food and menu I've ever seen so I literally starved for a whole day thanks to jetstars horrible menu and also did not get my luggage till 2 days later worst experience I've ever had not happy to pay $1200 and starve #worst experience ever!!!!

Okay 5.0

Pros: THE PRICE OF THE TICKET IS WHY YOU WOULD FLY JETSTAR. OTHERWISE, YOU WOULDN'T FLY JETSTAR.

Cons: The food menu is very limited to bready, carbohydrates - not a single salad or actual meal is available. Everything is tv dinner style. The entertainment only changes every few months so if you are frequent flyer with JetStar, you'll get bored of the movie and TV selection within three flights. The customer service varies wildly. I had one flight where a steward spilled a cup (literally) of water on me and handed me two napkins, and another flight where they moved me to a more comfortable seat upon request. Also, the JetStar membership is a JOKE! I paid for a year membership with the offer of deals and lower, membership prices. HA! I have yet to see an international offer, and they only reduce prices of say entertainment by $1. Also, they don't have an actual MILES program. If I was flying with ANY other company, I would have received some type of positive upgrade for all my flying with them. I must have flown 100,000 miles with them this year already.

Pros: I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!

Pros: For the price, expectations were exceeded. Food was adequate, entertainment was adequate (bring your own ear buds or headphones; older 2-prong connection so took a bit of wiggling to get sound from both ears), seats were adequate with a bit of legroom (I'm 6'-1" and fit okay, but with shorter legs)

Cons: It is a Chinese airline, so rules are very rigid (no handheld or earphones 30 minutes before landing, seatbacks up 30 minutes, etc.). Boarding was mass boarding for an A330.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Have a pinched nerve that is causing loss of fine motor skills in my left hand a great pain. I am 6'5" and can't make myself any smaller. Despite informing a crew member of my medical condition, they made no effort to be careful when they came through the cabin. I thought sitting in the bulkhead right behind first class it would limit the traffic but the aisle was used heavily and with the first class aisle being more inline with my seat than the aisle for the rest of the plane, the attendants literally ran into me constantly causing me much pain.

Pros: Economy X was definitely worth the minimal cost to upgrade. I loved more leg room (which used to be a "normal" economy size), upgraded noise-cancelling headphones, and having my food earlier so it was piping hot (although still not-so-great airline food).

Cons: The touch screen of my monitor barely worked. Aside from that, the jack for my audio was not working properly. Once I could finally watch a movie, the sound would cut off for a while. I'd have to do my darndest to rewind the movie, while trying to get the audio jack to work. It took a lot of work to get the movie to rewind, and then after it started, I couldn't get the touch screen to work for it to stop & play again. Sometimes it would rewind the movie 20-30 minutes before I could get it to play again. All very frustrating.

Pros: I liked how easy it was to check in, the pleasantness of the crew, and the entertainment that was provided (should you purchase it).

Cons: I didn't like how people just rushed to get in front of the line and didn't wait for their row numbers to be called when boarding the plane. I understand that everyone wants the overhead compartment space, but it was just rude. Also, it is frustrating that the airline will nickel and dime you for everything. My suggestion is to make you sure you buy the Kilograms for your luggage before you get to the airport (if you are checking luggage in) or else you are going to be paying a hefty price to check your bags. Also you are only allowed 7 Kgs (15 lbs) for carry on luggage...if you go over that you will be charged. The seats were comfortable, but way too close together.

Cons: Spent almost 200 dollars for baggage and seating. They lost my luggage and it took 3 days to get it back, finally. On my flight back they messed up my seat. I booked an aisle seat and got something right in the middle. When I told them I payed for seating they told me that you can pay for it but they still don't guarantee that you get the seat. Why exactly do I spent money on seating then? I'll never fly jetstar again.

Excellent 8.6

Pros: The cost of the flight couldn't be beat. And aside from the last minute change in flights due to a cancelled flight the actual flights and flight crew on both flight were excellent.

Cons: Having my original direct flight cancelled and being rebooked with a stop before Sydney. Caused issues with having to go through customs then to recheck bags and transfer from an international terminal to a domestic terminal with a very minimal amount of time afforded between connections especially since the 1st leg landed late. The only compensation was a $50 discount on another flight which in all honesty is no compensation at all since I don't fly to Australia on a regular basis so not likely to be flying with Jetstar over the next 3 months. A comp meal would have been more appreciated for the disruption in my flight plans that caused me to get into my destination later then planned.

Okay 4.6

Pros: The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)

Cons: My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred.

Pros: I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi.

Cons: I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch.

Excellent 8.5

Pros: Our stewardess was very helpful for our tight connection. She helped with instructions on finding our next gate and gave specific information on making the airport easier to maneuver.

Cons: On time fights would have made our day better and less stressful.

Excellent 9.3

Cons: Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good.

Okay 5.3

Pros: The flights were fairly punctual. We had a delay in landing at our destination but this was due to the airport, not the airline. The food was good for airline food.

Cons: The seats are small and have a strange design. I am not overweight but was unable to sit comfortably throughout the flight. The staff were fine, but not overly friendly.

Pros: Straightforward, get-what-you-pay-for experience. Fairly standard seats, personal entertainment options on the trans-pacific flight, but not within asia. Food served on all flights. Check-in at the airport was also straightforward.

Cons: Would not recommend connecting in Nanjing, as the airport handles international transfers a bit oddly. Expect to wait in a group in a handful of different lines, while being herded quite closely by a customs agent from point to point, passports collected when you get off the plane.

Pros: Great flight, punctual, great movie options, great food, friendly and helpful flight attendants. After the chaos of boarding and disembarking that marks domestic US flights, Virgin's quick and painless boarding and disembarking of a much larger aircraft was a breath of fresh air. Great job VA!

Cons: Nothing, it was all good.

Okay 4.0

Pros: They were super nice and did not charge me for boiling water and tap water as I made my own meal on the plane. They gave me an extra-large cup which made it easy for me to make my freeze-dried meal!

Cons: Reading the reviews - I also got the impression from Kayak that there would be 1 free checked bag. It took 2 hours for me to get my bags upon arrival, so I was almost unable to re-check my bags when the layover was almost 3 hours. I had to take a cab from the international airport to the domestic one, rushing to make the bag check-in deadline, and then get there to see the flight delayed 30 mins. The delay is not the problem, stuff happens, it was the lack of communication, from start to finish that was frustrating. Other airlines have texting and email services, and offer to check bags right outside of customs. I was glad to have brought my own food - $10 for 5 tablespoons of rice? $7.50 for instant noodles? at least the portion size looked OK. The flight staff were very nice, but I felt like the girl at the bar only drinking water.

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.
