JetStar is one of the most frequent Australian airlines. The other two being Virgin Australia and Qantas.

I booked my flight from Melbourne to Sydney and back on JetStar. The Qantas-owned airline reminds me JetBlue or Southwest. They are a low-cost airline based out of Melbourne and created to compete with Virgin Blue — Virgin Australia’s low-cost carrier. They handle Australian flights, New Zealand, Asia and Pacific flights.
They got off to a rocky start with me. My flight was delayed an hour; but, the service on board was pleasant. It definitely cancel each other out. The airplane had decent leg room unlike Europe’s RyanAir. RyanAir had enough leg-room for a hobbit. I felt like Gandalf walking into Frodo’s home.
The carry-on limits are pretty standard. They allowed 56cm (height) x 36cm (width) x 23cm (depth) carry-on for the overhead bin plus another small carry-on for under the seat. The overhead bin item can’t weight more than 7 kg (i.e., 15.5 lbs). In addition, Economy gets complementary non-alcoholic beverages when I flew with them. I know. I can’t believe they make you pay for alcohol. Bastards.
Lastly, I would definitely recommend JetStar if you’re flying domestic within Australia. They provide good service and the leg-room is sufficient. The seats had enough elbow room. The only negative would be making you pay for your alcohol.
