Onestar airlines… that’s how we roll.
But seriously, if you want a review that compares all airlines of the world, Jetstar is rated 3 stars: http://www.airlinequality.com/ratings/jetstar-airways-star-rating/

So the world’s best airline owns the world’s worst airline. That’s something new

How is this possible??? It’s owned by Qantas!
I’ve been on Jetstar. I don’t see how bad it is. Food and service was great!

Same, every flight I’ve had on Jetstar has been perfect (and I’ve had around 10). No delays, good service, everything was average.

I’m 100% sure Lion Air is far worse than Jetstar in matter of passengers satisfication… (cough Delays, Last Minute Cancellation, Lost Baggage, etc cough). So I think JQ doesn’t deserve this title

I don’t think it’s fair either, Tigerair would definitely be behind too. They need more airlines in this survey to call Jetstar the world’s worst airline. I think they mean the world’s worst 3 star airline.

Surveys aren’t realible lately. So I won’t take it seriously as there are more airlines which are worse than Jetstar

Haha, I am currently finding this active post that you have previously published pretty hilarious for some odd reason in my opinion as of right now!

Why am I not surprised that a budget airline ends up with the title…

There is no such thing as worst airline in the world. People have different expectations from different airlines. If I paid much less for my ticket, I’d be much more receptive to having worse seats, not as good service and etc. If I had a huge delay on a supposed 5-star airline that caused me to lose my job (extreme case here), I don’t care what you would say about how soft the carpets in the lounge are, this airline is now the “worst airline in the world” to me.

Jetstar, as stated above is just another budget airline. Personally my experience with them (or at least Jetstar Asia) has been okay, nothing special to report.

Besides, do you really expect that much when travelling with a budget airline? Just bring a good book, pop on the QC25s and just hunker down for the next few hours, I do it and so far its been quite bearable for me!

However, that said, a list of the worst 5-10 airlines, not ranked in order would probably be more fair.

The thing is, I think most people making these reviews are expecting more from a low-cost airline, or don’t even know that Jetstar is a low cost! They get what they pay for. You can fly $200 with Virgin Australia or $80 with Jetstar.

Exactly! People complain about the fares but don’t change their expectations accordingly.

They just assume all airlines will give them the exact same service just for different prices.

I’ve done all I can to educate the people around me about this, luckily their not as bad as others I’ve met…
