They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar

I was ignored in my requests to change my flight. All staff were not understanding and still have not responded to my calls and emails, even after the flight departed with an empty seat, for which I fully paid. Rude, contemptuous, money-grabbing. Malicious.

The customer service at bag drop was helpful, friendly and efficient. On board staff were very friendly.

Flight was delayed 1 hour, didn't find out until it was time to board at the gate lounge.

It is a budget airline so don't expect royal treatment. However, compared to other budget airlines I've flew on, this one is pretty decent. You can bring carry on, only it has to be under a certain weight. The chairs recline and the staff is very nice.

because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US.

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

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons 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 don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires 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.
