Plane could do with a refurbish looking a bit tatty for Qantas.

Food was low grade. Only 2 toilets at the far back of the plane for entire economy class. No screens for personal entertainment.

On this trip my mum required a wheelchair through the airports - Jetstar staff were brilliant right from the moment of booking the wheelchair, through to fasttracking our queues and boarding .
