Cons: "I sit in 2K of A350-900. Though it is known as a throne seat, there is an error on the installation of this seat. The foot rest that comes up and supposedly joined with the ottoman to make up the flat bed is too long so this seat never can actually go to full 180 degree mode."

Pros: "Attendants were kind."

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food.

Pros: "Most of it, especially having a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "Could do with more legroom, tall people exist"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"

Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."

Cons: "Had to change gates last minute in Kuala Lumpur. Since security is at the gate, that meant going through security twice. When we went to the new gate there was much confusion among security staff as they were not informed of the gate change."

It was as t even 7:30 when they dimmed the long guts. Only one bathroom in the back and we never saw someone go forward so we were t sure if there was one in the front. Very tight seats."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left a little late still arrived on time. I was traveling with one extra bag. 18 kilos. Cost at counter was $150.00. (Ouch) Anyway after paying the extra bag fee I went there office in the airport and purchased the same extra bag for my return flight for $28.00. Nice flight but make sure you purchase ample baggage when booking your flight."

Cons: "Don’t recall the greetings from cockpit and lack of announcements on potential turbulence and heavy rain plus lightning closer to destination. Only heard from cockpit almost nearing landing."
Cons: "Jetstar refuses to inform its customers about any upcoming flight delays. People waiting to pick you up: bad luck. Meetings planned after arrival: bad luck. Just sit, shut up and wait until they think the time is right to start boarding, usually an hour after scheduled department time (at least on this trip in both directions). Your ground staff is a total disaster, no matter how much your flight attendants will smile during the flight, they can't compensate for your pre-boarding mess."
Pros: "Flight is good, it's Jetstar so no food or entertainment was required, flight leaves Singapore at 23:00. Sleep and wake up in Darwin"
Cons: "Not a heap of leg room but is Jetstar and only a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Fast Check In and Boarding"
Cons: "Old Aircrafe Totally no Service"
Cons: "The absolute smallest seats I've ever seen in Coach. I am 5'4''/64cm and my knees barely fit without hitting the seat in front of me. Cannot imagine what taller people experience."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful. Trip was very short so for entertainment and food there was no need of it."
Cons: "The night before the flight, I tried to add more to my baggage allowance and the website would not take my credit card (I was within the correct time frame to add the extra baggage). When I explained this to them, they did nothing. The additional cost of 9 kg of baggage doubled the price of my flight. Never again. There are lots of other choices out there and I will choose something else. May karma bite them in the butt."
Pros: "Friendly crew, food actually very good"
Cons: "Aircraft not clean, several seats with trash when we boarded! Seats to close to each other, no space for legs for anyone 1.70 plus"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Many people brought suitcases onboard that were obviously over the 7kg acceptable weight. seems very unfair that they didn't have to pay to check in."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, smooth boarding and arrival (incl baggage)"
Cons: "Automated check-in is a pain for a family. There's really no room for your legs (I'm 1.8m and no chance I don't touch the next seat) - esp for old people not to recommend as definitely not healthy to be that squeezed. Worse than any other low cost carried from a space perspective."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "The screaming children and being put at the very back of the plane. Also the bus to call next to flight service is annoying."
Cons: "We bought JetAir tickets because they were cheap. Thought we could get by with carry-on. But carry-on is only 7Kg, and that's like 15 lbs. Had to pay for check in the baggages and the extra weight came out to $65 to $80 extra per bag. When you add that back into the price of the ticket, then the ticket is comparable to a premium ticket. Plus, the service is so bad and they lost our luggage and gave us the runaround. Next time, we'll just pay the premium ticket with another airline and get better service and no run-arounds. So, the only cheap thing about this airline is the service. They nickle and dime you for everything, so you end up paying more and getting less. I've learned my lesson. Beware."
Cons: "3 hour delay without s good explanation....after arrival in Bangkok wait 30 minutes before leaving aircraft....madness..."
Pros: "Everything was generally fine"
Cons: "They wouldn’t allow me to check in and couldn’t explain why at SIN airport. Later the lady at the airport info desk clarified it was because of possible volcanic activity in Bali. Seems like the people at jet star might of known this instead of assuming their system was broken?"
Pros: "Seats weren’t terrible"
Cons: "They severely overcharged me for luggage. When we were on the flight, they wouldn’t allow me to move from a middle seat to an open seat in the rows and rows and rows of empty seats. Then, when I asked for water, which is a basic necessity, they tried to charge me $4. Terrible airline. Will advise others to stay away."
Pros: "Don't be fooled by the low price. You pay extra for everything. Initial fare does not include any luggage, a seat assignment or even a soda. Staff were helpful and friendly helping folks use the check in kiosks and automated luggage checking machines. There was no traditional check in counter. At the Singapore airport. You do it all yourself. Flight was on time. The aircraft was newer and clean. This airline is perhaps more dependable than some of the other smaller low cost Asian airlines. Food and entertainment got low rating because there was none really but this was only an hour long flight."
Pros: "The service of the cabin crew"
Pros: "750pm flight. Hope they add mor late night flight."
Cons: "I dont have checkin luggage. Web checkin did not give me straight to gate boarding even on FasT booth. Old system allows me straight to gate."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old. Seats are a bit narrow."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "flight was delayed. had to change gate"
Cons: "No basic newspapers available."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I liked watching the check in clerks walking people down to the excess baggage payment window to demand more money."
Cons: "You have to pay $60 to check one bag. Zero free drinks or snack, not even water. Not sure what we paid for for our tickets which we’rent exactly cheap..."
Pros: "Fast Check In and Boarding."
Cons: "Totally no services for the passenger and seats are not comfortable."
