I'm planning a holiday to Japan in late Jan/ early Feb. Anyway, here in Australia, there's a low-cost airline called Jetstar that earned a reputation for being pretty crappy and cancelling flights a lot when it first started up about two years ago. However, if I fly with them, I can save $600 off the next cheapest airfare. Does anyone know if their suckitude has lessened? Has anyone here flown with them recently? Is my peace of mind worth the extra $600?
For anyone who's visited Japan, what should I do in the Kansai area? I want to see Osaka and possibly Kobe for the first time and Kyoto for a second, but I'm not sure exactly what to do there.
For anyone who's never been/going to Japan, what are your best/ worst airline experiences? What should you not forget to bring/do under any circumstances when travelling overseas?
