Jetstar to Hawaii - flights changed by 4 days.

Flying to Hawaii in March with Jetstar. Booked during a sale in May. Checked my flight last night and they have put my return flight home forward by 4 days( no notification). I am not at all upset as i am happy to spend the extra time in Hawaii but it means i have to change my hotel dates and maybe get an extra couple of days leave from work. My question is, are they likely to change again, should i change my hotel booking to match now or wait a bit.

1. Re: Jetstar to Hawaii - flights changed by 4 days.

I find that there can be some movement in the JQ schedules that far out & it may change again. Mine haven't been more than a day though, nor have they changed close to departure date (more than about 10 minutes).

Schedules could also be a bit unsettled with the introduction of the Boeing 787's. Chances are you will get one to HNL. But not so good for economy with 3-3-3 seating - get an exit row seat if in economy. Keep monitoring your booking, I've had a schedule change without being advised.

Four days difference sounds more like a cancellation than a change.

With Jetstar, anything is possible.

We had the flight time on a JQ flight changed 4 times from 4 pm to 1:30 am once and were only notified of the first change.

I'd call them and find out what's going on and ask o be put on a more suitable flight.

Flying to Hawaii and they have brought your return flight forward 4 days?

Doesn't that mean 4 days LESS in Hawaii?

Forward/back? I have 4 days more in Hawaii. If it was 4 days less i WOULD be making a fuss.

Rang Jetstar to be told the flight on the new date has been cancelled and there is nothing available after January for our trip home. My option was a refund or to wait and ring back mid October to see if anything is available then. I believe Jetstar are updating their planes and my son says all the flights will change. I told Jetstar to leave the the booking as is and i will call back. The flights were cheap so i don't want a refund at this stage because it will cost much more to reschedule .
