Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Burnie - King Island
Domestic
We booked REX flights from Tassie to King Island. I was honestly a little nervous as we had flown Jetstar down from Brisbane to Hobart and the seats were small and uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest etc. I need not have been concerned. There was ample legroom and the seats were more comfy than the Jetstar flight despite it being a much smaller plane (they flew the Saab on this route). It's such a short 35min flight we weren't expecting any kind of refreshment, however the minute we took off the Captain advised that we'd have a smooth flight and then the Air Stewardess commenced the refreshment service. I just chose a glass of water but we were given a sweet AND a savoury snack. Honestly, the three REX staff onboard could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our return flight a few days later was just as good. I highly recommend REX and will be flying interstate with them soon!
