Hi all, I'm going to Australia in february and would like to experience a flight with a LCC when I'm there... I've checked that Jetstar and Virgin Blue sometimes offer the same fare for a SYD-MEL flight, what carrier would you choose ? Any other option ?

I would definitely choose Jetstar over Virgin Blue. They seem like a great airline!

Jetstar's seat pitch is 30 inches. The new Airbus A320s feature all leather slim-line seats with 1 inch of extra width providing additional space and comfort. You won't find any Economy seats in Australia wider and more comfortable.

But then you may also want to take note that Jetstar doesn't really fly SYD-MEL!! What the airline puts as "MELBOURNE" is indeed AVV, where is rougly an hour ride from the CBD. That shall cost you $90 in a taxi.
