    I am seeing super cheap flights second week of Jan. So cheap it seems too good to be true, since judging by online seat selection, the planes are empty.
    Do they often cancel flights if there are not enough passengers to make the flight profitable?
    Should I book a flight earlier in the day so if I get stuck, there are later flights I can catch?

    I've flown Jetstar at least a dozen times and have yet to have a flight cancelled -- that's been my personal experience.

    Fact 1: I'm Australian and Jetstar is an Australian Company (subsiduary of Qantas). But, Jetstar Asia is only 49% owned by Jetstar (Aust).

    Fact 2: I choose any other airline over Jetsar (Australia). Reason, they're constantly changing cancelling/flights. They shunt pax off to accommodate higher paying pax.

    Fact 3: Jetstar (Australia) will NOT abandon you. You'll get moved to another flight/day.

    So, if the price is good, go for it, but don't rely on the time to connect with something else.

    I took the Jetstar just few days ago, from Danang to Hanoi. It's something like 600,000 Dong per person (inclusive of all charges).

    If you have your plan already, please buy as soon as possible because the fare will increase when it come closer to the departure date.

    My experience with it (though once only) is that it's very good and on time. No accident at all.

    Hi, I've got a flight booke with jetstar, going from HCMC to Haiphong. Does anybody know if you must do web check in or if you can simply do your check in at the airport with only your booking number as you would do with any other flight?

    Thank you!

    At airport check-in. Always best to have a print out of your itinerary/receipt.

    I'm going Darwin-HCMC by Jetstar in OCT. Very cheap, just remember to book your connecting flights early too. For example, I live in Brisbane and was waiting for my Bris-Darwin flight to get cheaper when they offered cheap fares from Darwin-Bali around the same time as my flight, so all the connecting flights to Darwin started selling out for the cheap Bali flights.

    Hi adam,
    Jetstar pacific are pretty reliable but yes they do change flight times.
    Would suggest when you book you give them your e-mail address so you will be informed of changes.
