You have to pay extra luggage fees for all these airlines.. Consider Garuda if you do not wish to pay luggage fees.. It is sometimes cheaper than any of the airlines that you mentioned and way more comfortable..

Definitely Garuda if you can get a good price. 30kg plus 7kg hand luggage with economy fare. Not sure about the others. We always go with Garuda.

We're flying with Garuda at Christmas.

It was only slighty more than Air Asia, and once you added luggage and meals on, it would've been the same. :)

Just remember you get what you pay for. these 3 airlines are generally cheaper for a reason I agree with the other 3 posts I prefer Garuda but I have also gone with the other 3 and I would probably choose Virgin over Jetstar and never going Air asia again!

All 3 of them will sting you for excess baggage.

Jetstar do have really good deals sometimes tho but I find they are always changing flight times and messing people around.

And Air Asia dont serve alcohol, its not even available to purchase (heaven forbid i arrive in Bali sober)

The other problem with these 3 is if for any reason you need to change your flight, you pretty much have to forfeit your ticket and buy a new one where as Garuda will change it for a fee.

If you get in early you can get good deals with Garuda but you have to keep an eye out for them. and being able to take 30 kilo's is great!
