    We are intending on going to SYD - DPS next year for our twice delayed trip to Bali. QF flights are nearly booked out. JQ are not (in fact almost no seats taken). We are really hoping for reward seats, but JQ is not even appearing in the QF booking engine (for either revenue or reward...

    Amex Travel and Jetstar

    Just noticed that Jetstar now appears to be bookable through Amex Travel online. Flights are showing without fare options e.g. to book a bundle, so you're stuck with the Starter fare and you can't seem to add baggage. They're also pricing around $6-7 higher (there's a $5 tax listed) regardless...

    Loading of Jetstar flights on web site.

    I can see flights loaded up to 30th April 2022 on the Jetstar web site. Are they loaded once a month? And when do they do that? I am looking at booking ADL to CNS next July. Thank you to anyone who could answer my questions.

    Jetstar (NZ) $5 credit card fee for $9.75 payment

    I've just redeemed a Jetstar credit voucher for a flight in New Zealand. The voucher covered most of the cost of the flight, but there was an extra amount of NZD9.75 to pay. The only way to pay for this was by credit card, and Jetstar very kindly added on a NZD5 credit card fee! I realise...

    Jetstar cost of a reward seat?

    I could be completely incorrect but it seems the Jetstar website may be revealing the amount they get paid by Qantas for an award seat. I was just searching for some domestic Jetstar award flights and similar to any other redemptions when you reach the payment stage (but before you make...

    Apologies if this has been answered before but does anyone know why Qantas codeshare on Jetstar domestic flights when you can’t even earn points or SCs with the QF codeshare? There are heaps of QF codeshare flights on Jetstar at the Melb T4 terminal but why do they need to codeshare? Is it to...
