    Red face Is it safe + good to fly with Jetstar?

    i was looking around on their main page, i don't believe a return flight to Japan (Nagoya) would cost only $318 (JetSaver) do anyone think it's a good idea, would it be safe, etc? or should i stick with the destination's own airline + more money if i plan to fly overseas?

    Someone I know was told by a Jetstar pilot that it is only a matter of time before one of their planes makes a burning hole in the ground. I don't remember exactly why, overworking pilots to cut costs or something.

    ...but I am still flying with them in a couple weeks.

    I've flown with Jetstar interstate, seriously, no less than a dozen times in the past 2 years and I have never had a problem with them. They're generally on time unless weather is an issue, and I haven't had a problem with baggage or anything else either.

    ok firstly you have more chance of dying by getting hit by lightning than u do flying, having flown with many airlines and jetstar comparably they are fine and the airline would not be able to operate if it didnt comply with the strict safety measures

    Yeh its pretty safe, so long as you travel overseas because they have their brand new A330-300 which has a high standard of safety and maintainence, Whereas the interstate A320's are alright, but they are quite sky worthy.

    you're in a 1st world country... safety isn't really an issue. S


    I remember being on a bus on a 3rd world country. While we are all sitting on the bus, the bus driver jumps out and refills the bus (with the engine running), then he pulls out a cigarette to enjoy oh yeah.

    hahahahahahaha people are idiots. reminds me dad was telling me about this patient he had at work who checked the level of petrol in a petrol tanker by sticking his head in for a look and then lighting his lighter because it was too dark to see anything. goodbye face. also a woman who stuck lit firecrackers in her mouth "to see what would happen". well she found out didn't she. fools.

    No, it is not safe.

    There is only one safe airline.

    Re: Is it safe + good to fly with Jetstar?

    Haha one of my friends' rellies said "Jetstar flights are too bumpy". I lol'd. Obviously they order the wrong weather to fly in.

    I travelled to and from Nagoya with Jetstar in December/early January, and the flight was great. I paid for food and entertainment beforehand but I could have lived without it. The new airbuses are awesome, as comfy as any regular airline. Great service too.

    The only problem is that the flights were late, to and from Japan, as a result of planes arriving late and a small radio problem. My friend travelled separately to us and her flight from Cairns was cancelled so she had to go to Osaka and transfer and was 4 hours late.

    I'm sure this happens periodically with most airlines, though. Australia is a really safe country to fly in/from.

    I've actually travelled with them to Vietnam before. Their seats are actually quite omfortable. The only downside was that you ned to bring your own food, but for me i don't really like aeroplane food anyway.

    Re: Is it safe + good to fly with Jetstar?

    I've flown Jetstar interstate twice, and to Japan last month. It's really not that bad at all. The seats are quite comfortable. It just felt like any other plane.
    The only downside to the international flight is paying an extra $30 each way for food. It was the worst tasting plane food I'd ever had and I wouldn't even pay $5 for it. So it's best to bring your own if you don't wanna starve.

    As far as budget airlines go, you're not likely to end up a smoking hole in the ground with Jetstar, because they're owned by Qantas.

    And dude, plane food is plane food. It has a reputation.

    I have been to a few countries. Not that i have flown overseas with JetStar.

    But i have flown to Queensland and Perth on it. I thought it was comfortable. Plus Mum said next time we go overseas we might try the Business Class JetStar.

    haha or the plane in the Island (lano and woodley, not the other one about robots lol)...Just a short notice ...you might want to try some yoga in your seats...for those in first class, no running by the pool
    lmao!!!

    Asian lines are less safe than Australian..just look at the Indonesian crashes, reputation for crashes and ones that kill!!

    Ive never flown Jetstar or Qantas, only Virgin Blue. My bro and sis got a flight back from Cairns to Brissie during easter and were late..but so was mum's qantas plane, so yeah not just Jetstar.

    Though i found one time a trip to Melbourne at the last minute in november, it was much cheaper to fly qantas and virgin than it was to fly jetstar!! how stuffed up is that?

    Sounds silly, but if the flight is 95% full, theywont sell the last two or so seats cheap, they will charge some gigantic price, as they will most likely make this money, theres always those last minute people out there

    I found a $59.95 fare to the Sunshine Coast from Melbourne, THE DAY BEFORE TRAVELING, i was so tempted
