Cant understand why the separated my two luggage bags 1 on a later flight, should have separated a single travelers and their one bag not a one of two bags.

overall what we got was done well but will try never to fly jetstar again due to having to pay for everything. Our flight was not cheaper than other flights we have taken with full free service.

The flight was actually a quantas flight (operated by emerites). Unfortunately we thought we were paying for an emerites flight and the quality of Quantas is still not as good as Emerites. The plane seats were very small, but luckily we could move to an empty row and stretch out.

Plane interior dated and entertainment system very old. Screen not very clear.

Melbourne Flights

Diversely populated, culturally rich, and endlessly exciting, Melbourne is a rare location that blends the intrigue of a big city with the tranquility of a small town. Although you may have one itinerary planned when you arrive, you will quickly find things change the second you step into this city. From the entertaining attractions at the historic Luna Park to the sweeping views from the Eureka Tower, the chic restaurants and shops on Chapel St to the fast-paced cricket matches at the MCG, there is no shortage of things to do. Because this is such a tourist hub, cheap flights to Melbourne from NZ$439 are easy to find, regardless of the season.

Best time to go to Melbourne

Peak Season:

Melbourne is a quiet city from December to February, as many of the locals go on annual leave during these months. Because of this, flights and accommodation are inexpensive, giving visitors free rein to soak up the sun in St Kilda, visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, and browse the Queen Victoria Market in the company of other tourists.

Shoulder Season:

March through May, and September through November make up the shoulder season in this city. Despite the temperate weather during these periods, tourists are few, making inexpensive flights to Melbourne readily accessible. Because of the mild climate, this is a great time to immerse yourself in the history and natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road, mingle with the locals at Federation Square, or take in some music at one of the bars in Fitzroy.

Off Season:

From June to August the weather cools down, and tourists flee the city, so if you prefer solitude, this is the best time to go, as crowds are thinner, and the city sees an influx of events, such as the Writers Festival and the International Animation Festival.
