    I think Jetstar provide a great level of service for the low price you pay for fares. I've flown with them many many times and certainly have had signifigant delays but I think this is to be expected with any airline. Especially one with such frequent services. The checkin policy is strict and annoying (espcially when the plane is delayed!), but I find online check in a great work around (obviously for when you don't have any luggage to check). You can arrive at the airport just in time to board your plane!

    The worst airline EVER!!!! My sister was all ready to board her Jetstar flight and they staff say no sorry you cant fly until we have photo ID. She missed her flight even tho she was nearly 14! She had to have a school report to prove she was in grade 7, they put her on the next flight which was delayed 30min. TERRIBLE DONT FLY WITH JETSTAR!!!!!!!!

    These dudes are awesome! The girls at the Sydney counter have checked in my bags/skateboards all the time FOR FREE! when I told them that I didn't have checked baggage allowance! Love Jetstar. They're sick!

    I think the added service fees which were not highlighted prior to payment are a disgrace. Tried to cancel the moment I received confirmation for the higher amount and was told that wasn't possible. Wrote a written complaint and they stand by their policies. They added $ 17 per passenger per booking without ever showing this prior to input of credit card. Have reported them to ACCC.

    For a short trip where they're cheaper by a fair bit than the competition I use jetstar. But I wouldn't use them long haul, nor if they're more expensive.
    Reasons? Averagely friendly (to downright unfriendly) staff, poor customer service at their call centre, over strict inflight policies that make you sit staring into space while the plane circles waiting to land, lack of inflight entertainment - and the list goes on.

    You pay for what you get, not saying that it is a bad thing. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The plane is small but they accomodated my partner as he is very tall and put us in the emergency exit. I would say that they need more variety on their food menu!

    Having experiencing one really good trip with Jetstar and one not so good I feel a little neutral about my feeling towards the company. The first trip taken to Melbourne was a dream with friendly air staff, great customer service through the boarding gate and a hassle free, trouble free flight, however our flights to/from Hamilton Island were not so pleasant. The flight was delayed leaving and for over half an hour no explanation was given by staff as to why for the delay or anything. The other staff damaged one of our luggage bags and the staff on Hamilton Island were not helpful at all, and the flight back - horrendous - turbulence, grumpy air staff and screaming babies :( I suppose you definitely get what you pay for and the Hamilton Island flights were on sale. Would still consider going with them again because as said I am quite neutral about the service

    "Jetstar Customer Service" ... what an oxymoron. They are the most unhelpful people I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. They all say different things and won't put anything in writing. I was trying to sell some tickets I had purchased and they told us 5 different prices to change them over each time we called. There was a difference of $1000 in the prices and yet nobody could explain why. They refused to even give a reference number, let alone put anything in writing. I will NEVER use Jetstar again and I recommend that if you don't either if you think you might actually need to change anything at all on your ticket.

    Reluctantly I booked 2 international flights to Tokyo on Jetstar as they were so cheap. For $500 return, I figured I could put up with a dismal flight. However, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and found the flight to exceed my own expectations. It was even better than flying Qantas. You definitely pay what you get for so I recommend buying the Feed Me pack for an extra $30. Also you can hire in-flight entertainment for another $15. So for an extra $45 it is the same as flying economy on any other airline. The only downsides were the 4 hour stop overs at the Gold Coast making the end to end travel time around 14 hours. Also cheap tickets also mean that it makes it affordable for families to travel so make sure you pack some sound proof ear plugs. If you want to upgrade to premium economy its an extra $250 at the airport but you can only do it on the way out of Australia not coming back. I would definitely fly them again if there were cheap tickets but not sure I would book a flight beyond 8 hours.
