I have attempted, so far unsuccessfully, to navigate Jetstar’s frustrating website to purchase two extra pieces of baggage (one being a musical instrument) on a JetStar sector from Ballina to Sydney.
I understand that Jetstar’s the sort of airline that does everything on the cheap and......Read Complaint

Hey I haven't even flown Jetstar yet and I already regret purchasing flights with them.
Booked a package Holiday through RAC travel to Bali from Perth and my family leaves for the holiday mid April.
Despite Bali being a surfing Mecca for surfers travelling from Perth, today I uncovered that JetStar imposes a ban on all surfboards over 1.9mtrs or 6'3 in the old scale. This is apparently because it uses a smaller A320 plane even though it's an international flight.
So my Surfboards at 6'6in will be refused onboard...Read Complaint

This is an email from my mother who is getting married, she asked me to put this up as she does not have a Facebook account -
I am getting married in Bali in August - we have 72 guests travelling from Australia - apart from about 8 guests - they are all travelling with Jetstar.
We had a booking for a young lady who due to a death in her family is no longer able to travel and we have someone who would like to take the ticket. I rang Jetstar on Monday to do a name change - expecting that we will have to pay a small fee for a name change to cover any admin costs....Read Complaint

Knowing first hand of how hard it can be to contact Jetstar and also seeing how many people get to this site when searching for a way to contact Jetstar, I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of contact phone numbers and email addresses people could try. These contacts may or may not get your through to Jetstar, but they may be worth a try.
I will also add more contacts as I learn of them.
Booked a flight with Jetstar over the 2019 Christmas period? You may want to a have some sort of contingency plan as Jetstar ground crew, baggage handlers and pilots expected to strike in the weeks leading up to Christmas, specifically between 13th and 20th December according to the Jetstar travel alert on the strike.
Jetstar has been ordered by the Federal Court to pay fines totaling $545,000 for misleading it's online customers with it's 'price dripping' tactic when purchasing online.
Alan Jarman and his complaint about Jetstar's credit card surcharges.
Wait till you hear about the charges when he tried to use a $50 Jetstar voucher.
None of this will come as a surprise to regular visitors to DontFlyJetstar.

After my long battle with the Jetstar Customer Rep, I decided to post this online so that Jetstar users at least know what they are getting into before calling for a refund. Here is the Unofficial Jetstar Refund Policy Guidelines:
- Offer of a full refund is not a commitment that Jetstar will refund your fare.
- After receiving the offer a full refund, you may call customer service to ‘request’ a refund.
- There are no defined guidelines that determine a refund request’s success.
- Jetstar’s decision is final and will be made known 15 business days after you make your refund request....Read Complaint
My partner and I booked a flight from Sydney to Melbourne over the phone.something I will never do again..however we finally got sorted only to find that my partners name was spelt wrong . This was fixed quiclkly . Then a circumstance occured that meant we had to change our flight date. According to the Fare Rules included in the flight comfirmation it clearly states that changes can be made . Now all we wanted to do was change the date by one month.. same flight No ,same destination and same time. We found like so many others it seems that a $50 EACH non-refundable charge is applicable . There is absolutely NO mention of the amount of this charge and I guess like others we assuned that it may be like the $6 booking fee maybe a bit more.. but $50 is outrageous. I have been fobbed off......Read Complaint

I booked four tickets for my family on 16th January via Jetstar website. Fortunately, I saved a copy of the booking page and the booking number. I took Jetstar's advice from their web site and paid by bank transfer as I have an account in Australia. My bank completed the transfer the following day. I still don't have confirmed tickets and my booking has disappeared from their website. When I log in to my Jetstar account, there is also no record of my booking. When I phoned Jetstar it took twenty minutes before anyone answered (costly, even on Skype as I live outside Australia) The Jetstar representative took my booking number and said I should wait 7 days for my booking to be processed! I have booked scores of airline tickets over the years and have never had to wait 14 days to receive......Read Complaint
how bloody annoying
I know of 3 people - one travelling to japan in april the others on may 10th and may 20th...ALL called jetstar and were given refunds...
im travelling on the 14th and after speaking to maybe 5 operators and one supervisor...they would not grant me a refund.
i was as vocal as i could be...doesn't make sense to give other people refunds (esp those travelling after the April 18th deadline as noted on their website) and not me?
are the operators simply telling these people that a refund will be given just to get them off the phone?...Read Complaint
