Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

Recently flew Jetstar from Melbourne to Townsville and had an interesting situation occur. The once a day direct flight was full, so their system gave an option to book two flights, with a short stopover in Brisbane of just over an hour. I had one booking reference number covering both flights and no checked baggage, just a small carry on. On check-in at Melbourne, the computer issued one boarding pass only for Melbourne to Brisbane leg.

You could have done online check-in 48 hours prior, surely??

Does Jetstar have a service desk upstairs in Brisbane? You may have also been able to obtain your boarding pass there, or even at the gate if asking nicely (before check-in closes).If you have Qantas lounge access, the lounge staff also have access to Jetstar systems and can issue Jetstar boarding passes there too.
Thanks for the replies. Yeah you're both right, online check-in could have worked and possibly the other boarding gate staff might have been able to issue the pass.

You could have checked in for a JQ flight at the QF lounge which meant you wouldnt have had to go back through security.
I regularly check in for JQ flights at the QF lounge
Also there is no JQ service desk security side at BNE. It is all land side
