It looks like you had your Jetstar flight cancelled

Jetstar Complaints

  • Cheap Fair Scam

    Saul Steed

    After much convincing from my wife we booked cheap return tickets back on 2nd July to go to and from Darwin at the very end of October. The return date was to be about a week after arrival.
    We both booked our holidays in with our respective employers as did my daughter in Katherine so she could spend time with us.

  • Not one but two cancelled flights!

    Amy Crow

    Trip to bali recently ruined by Jetstar who cancelled our flight to Bali when we were at the departure gate, rescheduled us on to a new flight the next day which was delayed by 4 hours and we weren't informed until arriving at the airport and finally to top it off, cancelled our flight home. When the flight home was cancelled we were given appalling assistance. I can deal with one cancelled flight but two? Surely not this many planes can have "engineering" problems. We suspect they are simply cancelling non profitable flights. Shame on you Jetstar.

  • Jetstar attempt to ruin our Happy Memories of Bali

    Tom Collins

    We Love Bali..
    Sadly JetStar Airlines attempted to spoil our memories of Bali.

  • JQ37 Cancellation

    Richard Olsen

    I was supposed to fly out to Bali for a week yesterday afternoon. I'd booked and paid in advance for a business class ticket, return from Sydney to Bali. I did my web checkin at around 11am, no notification that the flight would be cancelled. I got to the airport, just over two hours before my flight, took my place in the business class queue, and was then asked to come forward. On the way to the counter, the staff member asked me where I was going. I said Bali, and she said, oh, the flight has been cancelled due to "engineering issues". I was told to stand and wait at the service counter.

    My family (husband and two teenagers) and I recently went to Honolulu. We booked Economy but were able to upgrade to business for $300.00 each person each way - an extra $2400.00. Everything was lovely until the dinner service and the alcohol started flowing - especially to the passenger seated across the aisle from me. Her and her friend explained that they were Qantas Staff travelling on a $150.00 ticket - good for them I thought. That was until she was served so much alcohol from the Cabin Crew that she became out of control.

  • 11 hour delay

    Benjamin Thompson Ovieghara

    Arrived at Melbourne only to be advised are flight would be delayed by 2 hours due to technical issues with the plane, 10 mins before are new departure time another announcement our flight is now delayed by 6 hours and to top it off 5 mins after that announcement we are informed our flight will be delayed by 12 hours yes 12 hours the staff are unless and rude and the company is by far the worst carrier I know please people don't fly with Jetstar

  • Won't ever fly them again!

    Linda Vogels

    Picked Jetstar because the times were the most suitable for our trip. Perth to Singapore flight delayed 3 hours. Annoying but bearable but the return flight on 29th July was unbelievable! We checked before leaving our hotel and everything was as scheduled but when we got to the airport we were told there was a delay of almost 11 hours and would not now be leaving until 4.50am. No offer of a hotel or anything! The excuse was 'weather' in Perth. The weather in Perth was fine and other airlines flights from Singapore to Perth left on time, it was just unfortunate for us they were full!

  • Cancelled flight with elderly parents

    Janene Anne Grinham

    I am still waiting to pick up my parents who were supposed to arrive in Sydney at 5PM, their flight was cancelled, they were then put on a bus from Sunshine Coast to Brisbane and they are now on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney, they arrived at Sunshine Coast airport at 2pm, the flight was supposed to leave at 3.20pm.

  • Incorrect return date due to idiot not knowing English!!!!!!!!!!

    Leonie Phillips

    I spent over an hour trying to make an online booking on the night of Wednesday, 27th July, for a simple return flight from Melbourne (Tulla) to Perth, leaving Saturday, 16 August and coming back last flight Sunday, 07 September. I viewed the email booking today, Thursday 31 July only to find that the goose I spoke to has made the return flight for Sunday, 14 September. Bloody hell, I have a very important medical appointment on Thursday, 11 September, so why the heck would I ask for a return flight after this date???

  • Jetstar valuair medan-singapore delayed

    Yo Man

    Flight delay due to crewing requirement ? are not jetstar knowing that now is holiday season and should have done enough preparation? It called valuair instead of jetstar when you reached the airport, felt like being cheated by the brand where the actual operator might not be jetstar but still valuair,


    Marcel Hilmer

    Unfortunately many, if not most of the stories start by referring to the "cheaper" cost in booking with Jetstar. The reality is different and in our case, unfair treatment with bags and then a 6 weather delay (light rain only in Perth!). Long story but really not necessary to explain as my epiphany came from reading through similar harrowing experiences. Avoid using them at all cost and enjoy life regardless of the tempting price, its just not worth it.

  • Bad experience

    Happy Oil

    I bought take a friend for free ticket for myself and family which is total of 4 from Mel to BKK direct flight. It cost s me $1700 includes 20 kg luggage and seat selection. Then I got mail that I have been re schedule so I need to stopover in Singapore on the who to BKK for 7 hours. I called call centre they said can change to earlier flight but I have to pay $1700 for 4 passenger because 2 of us is free ticket so need to purchase new ticket. Then she recommend that if I leave this ticket And buy another one from SIN to BKK. It will cost me $95 SG dollar per passenger.

  • My very bad experience with Jetstar.

    Fifi A. Hussien

    I will never fly with Jetstar ever again. I was travelling from Sydney to Auckland and I was surprised to find that when I arrived Auckland that Jetstar hadn't loaded my bag onto the flight for some unknow reason. It took up to six long days for my bag to finally arrived but during those six days I had a very bad experience with the Jetstar staff. I called up the Skycare (who manage Jetstar Baggage Service) service manager in Auckland and he was so unhelpful and rude.

  • Zero customer service

    Steve James

    Typical of Jetstar. It is what I expect of their continuing low standards. Once again they excelled. Despite having to put up with smaller leg room than other carriers and having to pay for everything as an extra you may at least expect some customer service. Wrong! After the staff took more time than it should have to offer a drink and food to passengers (for a fee of course) where were they for the rest of the flight? At the back of course where they remained for most of the entire flight reading magazines, drinking coffee and idly chatting. Absolutely no customer service.

  • Goodbye Jetstar

    David Loh

    Well, I have been a Jetstar customer all these while mainly because of their competitive air fares. My experiences with Jetstar has been fairly okay despite of the few incidents where my flight was rescheduled for up to a day earlier. I didn't mind it them because my travel plan was very flexible. However, around April this year, I've booked my Jetstar flights from Singapore - Melbourne - Adelaide for an important business trip with a tight schedule. I realized that was not a good idea after payment and I've decided to call Jetstar to negotiate a refund or credit of some sort.

  • The Perils of being helpful

    Jon Vowles

    We live in Singapore and have a Filipino helper.
    We thought it would be nice to pay for her to go and see her family in the Philippines so we bought her a flight on Jetstar.

  • The change policy when you don't have a change policy.

    Linda Clarke

    So.... 1 week and multiple lengthy phone calls later I learn the harsh lesson that if you are planning on being ill, busy, having unavoidable circumstances in life occur or just in general intend to live a relatively normal life - don't book with Jetstar.

  • Adding 1 bag to booking before check in

    Joanne Smith

    I logged onto the Jetstar website to manage my booking. The booking could not be found.

    I then connected to live chat and Jetstar staff member, Mylo (employee No. c5mde01) asked me for the booking reference number. He could not find my booking. Eventually the booking was found and I requested the cost of adding 1 bag to my booking from Melbourne - Adelaide return. He told me $25 per leg. I asked how much if I paid on check in. He said $70 per leg. I asked how much if I had included 1 bag at the time of booking. He said $18 per booking - not per leg.

  • Misrepresentation from Jetstar OS Call Centre!!!!

    Mark Kebblewhite

    Unbelievable is the only way to describe Jetstar's attitude!

    I booked our family holiday to Hawaii months ago and made it clear to the overseas Jetstar representative that we would likely extend the stay, however would need to confirm that closer to our September departure. I requested the agent confirm this prior to making any airline booking. The agent made it very clear that this would not be a problem from the airline side but clearly subject to seat availability.

  • When a free change is not a free change

    Billie Blue

    I booked 3 sale flights to Denpasar from Sydney for mid-September, and took the plus bundle for an additional cost as my plans were still a bit up in the air. The plus bundle, according to the clearly printed fare rules, allows the customer to change to another flight at no cost other than for the difference in fares if the new flight is more expensive No refund if it's cheaper - fair enough. Yesterday, I decided that we would need to leave a week earlier so I had a look on the website and discovered that the flights were still on sale - in fact $10 cheaper. Yay!

  • I wish I was an Elephant!

    Tubby Lardarse

    I wish I was an Elephant?


    So I wouldn’t forget.

    …Forget what?

    Forget that I had promised myself a year ago that I would never ever again fly with those orange and black 'so called aviators' of the Australian airline industry!

    ….Why’s that?

  • disgusting- worst airline ever!

    Simonne Cohen

    I have had the worst experience with Jetstar recently and I would never chose to fly this airline again. This airline has no integrity and the customer service is appalling/ non-existant. My flight on the 10th of Aprile from Melbourne to Sydney was cancelled and I was told that the airline would reimburse for all costs incurred including a hotel and new flight. I received an email from Jetstar that night saying I can go and book my own accommodation and flight and Jetstar will reimburse for all costs ( I have email proof and written evidence of this) .

  • This website is great

    Dan Tankerous

    Had a few horror stories on Jetstar with domestic NZ flights, such as cancellations, lost baggage, huge delays and inabilities to fly (back on cancellations) when AirNZ are taking off to the same destinations at the same times but after reading through this I realise their international flights are no different and that it wasn't a one off and just bad luck for me.

    I hadn't heard much about their international flights but considered the risk to save a few hundred each way per person.

  • How a $448 return ticket cost me over $1200 Sydney Queenstown NZ return!

    Chris Wilson

    On 26 May 2014, I was booked on flight JQ224 from Queenstown New Zealand to Sydney Australia.
    The flight was cancelled due to heavy snowfall at the airport.
    Jetstar staff announced the cancellation and gave us an 0800 number to call. They told us to return to our hotels and that they would call us when they knew what was going to happen to get us on another flight. I stayed at the airport and called the number.
