Top tips for finding a cheap flight

  • The cheapest flight from Melbourne to Brisbane was found, on average, 89 days before departure.
  • Book at least 3 weeks before departure in order to get a below-average price.
  • High season is considered to be November, December and January. The cheapest month to fly is February.
  • Passengers taking a taxi from Brisbane Airport (BNE) into the city should be aware that there is an airport toll, which will add around A$ 4 to your cab fare.
  • If you would like to hire a car at Brisbane Airport, there are counters for car hire agencies near the baggage claim areas at both the Qantas and Virgin ends of the domestic terminal. If your preferred hire company does not operate directly from the airport, check with them before your arrival, as many companies will pick you up and take you to the agency.
  • As an alternative to taking a taxi from Brisbane Airport, you might like to consider Uber or Ola instead. Rideshare apps are usually cheaper than a taxi travelling the same distance, sometimes significantly so.

Airline reviews

Wasnt full so that’s a plus. Staff were outstanding. Patient, curteous, responsive. Masks were enfoced which is great. I’ve travelled with young kids of my own and have had some rough experiences with them but there is ALWAYS some way to pasify a screeming child. Many parents on this flight didnt care at all. I was awoken by a toddler running past me, bumping into my elbow, screaming “tee non, tee non, tee non”. On these transcontinental flights, parents with little children should be given a special section, and parents need to be more reponsive to the issues causing their little ones to scream and cry nonstop for 16.5 hrs. Its not the kids’ fault. Also, why cant airlines get rid of static charged fleece throws? All that said, Qatar remains one of the better international carriers out there.

Service should have been better

They did not let my uncle fly at all

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor entertainment systems"
Cons: "More refreshments"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"
Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK is very bad. They do not know the meaning of priority. Food from JFK to Doha pretty bad."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Cons: "Food and seat comfort could be better"
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Cons: "Entertainment for a 4 hr flight was terrible"
Pros: "Service is great, planes were on time or only minimal delay. Wifi access, food is pretty descent, blanket and pillow plus small package with toothbrush. Stewardess very friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food Plane was freezing on international flights and at 3:50am in the morning pls provide blankets to all"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Qatar has the best crews. The 777-300 is the most comfortable aircraft I've ever flown on, and I'm always in the cheap seats. Plenty of food."
Cons: "Some of the food dishes weren't appealing to me. But I get that trying to please everyone with everything on diverse international flights is impossible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."
Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and helpful, wheel chair provided at Doha airport by helpful and friendly staff, comfortable seating in business class. Overall I would give my flight an A rating."
Cons: "I do not have any complaints, except one bathroom I used was not as clean as I would have preferred."
Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"
Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"
Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."
Pros: "Excellent friendly service"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Always fun flying with them."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Pros: "It was much better flight then JFK-Doha, crew was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Dirty washrooms."
Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."
Pros: "Enterment"
Cons: "Crew nice alway take care customer"
Pros: "The Plane was good but not updated with new data"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and patient. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. The food was mediocre and could have been more creative"
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "They had a surprise business class update waiting for me. Wonderful experience."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."
Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"
Cons: "Food was awful."
Pros: "Could not fault"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Overall feel of the flight. The focus in safety"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours. Limited selection of movied"
Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."
Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"
Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."
Pros: "good"
Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"
Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."
Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "Business class seats are private and allow for lay flat sleeping"
Cons: "my wife and i were subjected to very harsh treatment at check in...we were harassed over being 100 grams overweight on a check in bag...100 grams... both flying on a paid business class ticket."
Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "crew were the best part being proactive asking if needed anything or getting a pillow. Boarding, I was one of the stragglers so got on easy"
Cons: "Leg room is awful, food for breakfast is a bit soggy with baked beans making hash brown soggy"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"
Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"
Pros: "I booked by flight last minute due to a family emergency overseas. As such, I arrived to the airport a little later than I should have, the passengers had boarded the flight. The ground crew couldn't have been nicer in expediting my boarding and getting me on the flight. I can't thank them enough. Top service. Thank you. The flight still arrived 25 min early after great snack and smooth flight."
Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"
Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."
Pros: "Crew were really good"
Cons: "Using an old plane for a cross country flight was ridiculous"
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "We did not use this flight and I was told that I could not receive a refund."
Cons: "On time boarding and availability of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Landing."
Cons: "Huge delays on check-in. System failures but also elderly people not knowing the check in process and causing further delays. People taking too much luggage inside the cabin. No food options for gluten free. No water served. Smooth flight though. Check-in staff at luggage short tempered."
Pros: "Business class manager really looked after my food allergy requirement."
Cons: "New crew member - belatedly realised I was in business."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "better movies"
Pros: "Smooth access and staff persona."
Pros: "Taking my elderly mother up to the Gold Coast to visit my sister is always a challenge but thanks to the beautiful staff at Virgin it was made so easy. Just outstanding customer service. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"
Cons: "My ticket was deemed void when I was checking in and I could not get on the flight. I will never book via kayak again."
Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."
Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."
Pros: "Easy checkin online. Easy bag drop at airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Snack enjoyable."
Cons: "Typical seating, far too cramped. Person beside me encroached on my personal space throughout the flight. Thank goodness it was only a 2hr flight between Melbourne & Brisbane."

Pros: "Attendants were pleasant enough"
Pros: "Great service and staff."
Cons: "The non existent baggage drop at Tullamarine. The in flight snacks needs improving."
Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."
Pros: "Flight where great"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing?"
Cons: "The staff were very rude. The seats did not recline. The flight sucked. I will NEVER EVER FLY VIRGIN EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Sufficient."
Pros: "attentive service and relatively comfortable, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Meal/snack/food was atrocious, was the most disappointing excuse of a snack. We had a choice of a few pieces of cut apple or an extremely thin sad looking granola bar. Expect airlines that offer “full service” to offer something better for the price, also the fact that no fixed TVs or iPads and you have to use your phone to watch movies, at least get a phone holder on the back of the seat."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Half hour delay"
Pros: "Priority boarding is great"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The staff and service was nice and friendly. The plane took off right on time and I liked that it even arrived early. The price was good too."

Pros: "A cold drink just when I needed it. Thank you"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."
Cons: "I don't understand why we had a 4hr 40 min flight plan which went way up the Australian coast instead of going in a direct line from Melbourne to Christchurch, when the ticket noted about a 3hr 40 min flight time. If you can enlighten me that would be appreciated."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "legroom too small and food was minor snack."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, then booked by Virgin without consultation, onto a flight via Sydney that would take 6 1/2 hrs to get there, had to request another flight but still lost most of the day of my holiday, plus left with many phone calls re change of rental car, arrival , parking bookings, and no compensation and then stress when I got to the airport and was told that despite being "booked " on the much later flight, now I might not actually have a seat. I had to wait while attendant at counter tried to find seats and only watch as they were taken by someone else several times. So unnecessarily stressful and misleading. Lost my original seats, had to sit separate from my companion, and no real concern by Virgin about their impact on customers' plans. Last time I flew, the plane was cancelled, and we had to wait hours for another one in the terminal, so I missed the body corporate meeting that was the ONLY reason I was flying to Brisbane, paying for overnight accommodation and car rental and flight and I MISSED it. Huge cost for NOTHING, as despite driving straight to the meeting, it was just finishing. Whilst at the airport trying to fly home, I heard another Virgin flight cancelled , again due to "unscheduled maintenance". Seems that maintenance and mechanical problems are common and way more common than they should be. So that is a big worry!"
Pros: "The flight was good. On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bag drop check in was terrible. So slow. Boarding wasn't efficient"
Pros: "Alot"
Cons: "NOting"
Pros: "Great boarding and efficient flight"

Cons: "my seat got changed"
Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "The flight was very good."
Cons: "What I didn't like was having my flight changed from the original 7 pm to 5 hours earlier! It messed up our arrangements and meetings with others."
Pros: "Virgin is always well organised and the flights kept to time. The staff were very helpful and I had a comfortable trip"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The snack and OJ eere ok."
Cons: "Not picking my own seat, boarding from front AND rear is a nightmare, crew could care less! My seat was next to the bathroom (the front bathroom was unusable) so I had people hanging on my seat the entire flight...entertainment ap must be downloaded before flight! Not to mention we were an hour late due to weather even though every other flight was on time!"
Pros: "The checking-in in Perth domestic terminal was very fast. The flight was less uncomfortable than usual for the economy class."
Cons: "The lack of food options."
Cons: "Luggage of 23kg per piece and not able to share across allocated family total"
Pros: "Like the corporate image & modern design of different facilities etc. The check-in was nice & smooth."
Cons: "No greeting or smile from crew staff (I think it's important as it shows welcoming)."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Liked that they boarded from front and back"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight crew were lovely."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."
Pros: "Agent service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I didnt like anything because i didnt flight because of your shitty company that didnt tell me about my decline"
Pros: "Reached Sydney, eventually"
Cons: "Hour late. Crowded plane, cramped. No service. Poor communication about delays."
Pros: "Efficiency at the check-in and the excellent service by the crew on board."
Pros: "unexpectedly about an hour into the flight an announcement came over the loudspeaker. It was something like this : Attention Attention please pull on your oxygen mask when it drops and place it firmly over your mouth and breathe calmly. I was shocked and everyone that I could see looked shocked. Then nothing. It was the announcement that you never want to hear when on an aeroplane. About 5-10 minutes later another announcement that it was an error and a wrong button had been pushed. It certainly was the wrong button to push."
Cons: "Late"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "Staff rude..was very cold and we also dindt get any glass of water never use this company anymore"
Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"
Pros: "great flight - fast and easy."
Cons: "it's jetstar so seats aren't the most comfy, but for a few hours, it's just fine."
Cons: "Delayed as usual - luggage check again"
Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"
Pros: "Loved we departed on time & landed a little early"
Cons: "That we had to abort a landing & circle round to try again."
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was disgusted that I had only a 6kg small carryon suitcase & a laptop in my handbag (6kg) and had my carryon taken off me & put on the next flight & not getting delivered until 10pm tonight!!! Plus had to pay $60 and buy some clothes to wear to event tonight as luggage won’t arrive in time. Will never fly Jetstar again!!!"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"
Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"
Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The landing was super rocky"
Cons: "Crew attitude"
Cons: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."
Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "The end. Getting off the plane."
Cons: "4th Jetstar flight in a row for the holiday that was late. 2nd flight at Melbourtne airport that was delayed over 2 hours after a 3 hour stopover between flights."
Cons: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."
Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Stormy weather made for a bumpy ride but that is no ones fault. Everything else as one would expect from a short flight"
Pros: "The cabin staff were friendly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to excess baggage weight in hull. The baggage had to be unloaded and then reloaded again, while we sat on the tarmac for an hour."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "40 min delayed!!"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers."
Pros: "Customer service was great.Flight was on time and the weather was good for a day and a half"
Cons: "I did not like it when i got to the airport up there at 7:15 pm and when my Brand new suitcase came around on the carousel it had 2 smashed handles on it.I Reported it straight away to the people in departures.The young guy their gave me a number to ring, which i will be doing tomorrow"
Pros: "Was a short flight"
Cons: "I paid nearly $900 for a trip to Brisbane return. found that it was not what I expected. There was no lounge access. The only food available had to be paid for. They gave no water. I had to pay $4 for a cup of tea. I had to deal with immigration because the flight was international to Bali. Checkin place hard to find because of international flight for domestic destination. Signs misleading. Staff not friendly. Just want money."
Pros: "Safe."
Cons: "Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead."
Pros: "They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before."
Cons: "No further updates when revised departure time had past and we were still waiting in line. Delay avoidable and not acceptable for first flight of the morning"
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."
Cons: "There's little to like. Extremely cramped conditions. Poor food and beverage. Avoid if you possibly can."
Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lack of legroom."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"
Cons: "Nil to report"
Cons: "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"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Shame the staff were not more friendly, I took my rubbish to find a bin and the flight attendant expressed her annoyance and me. Asking her where I can put it. They don't smile and when you asked a question they treated me like I was a nuisance"
Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."
Pros: "Need to replace seat."
Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"
Pros: "Efficient on time departure and arrival. Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Credit card only for purchases without advance notice is a bit ordinary"
Pros: "It was a good flight, good pilot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed It is a 7+ hour flight I think you could offer some snacks and coffee or tea for free At least one good movie for free Every airline I've chosen to fly with does it but Jetstar It was quite disappointing"
Pros: "Due to storms a 1 1/2 hour delay which is understandable until I found a friend on Qantas left on time. Delay on all Jetstar to Sydney and that afternoon but unaccountably Qantas mostly in time."
Pros: "The smooth takeoff and landing, the staff cortesies"
Cons: "The 5min wait but perfect otherwise"
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
Pros: "The cabin crew were most helpful in helping me get out of the plane first, and escorting me into the terminal to find the fastest way of getting to the international terminal. I am most thankful to them."
Cons: "The flight left 2+ hours late and I nearly missed my international connection in Brisbane"
