Airline reviews

Pros: "All as expected."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant."

Pros: "Super smooth flight, flight attendants were incredibly friendly and hospitable"

Pros: "The service and entertainment provided"

Cons: "We left about a half hour late, but made up some of the time in the air."

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."

Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"

Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"

Pros: "Quick boarding and deplaning on arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Online check in"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganised, food was cold and tasteless (chicken noodle) not helped that I had to wait for cutlery to be able to eat it"

Cons: "very cramped"

Pros: "Snacks and the drinks are good. Boarding are pretty smooth."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."

Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."

Pros: "Crew was nice and ready to help"

Pros: "FLIGHT TIME"
Cons: "UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS , NO SEATS FOR FAMILIES TO SIT TOGETHER"

Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."

Cons: "In flight wifi and entertainment didnt work"

Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."

Pros: "Quick!"
Cons: "We sprinted to make our connecting flight - bags didn't make it. Got woken up at 2am to collect them after a whole day traveling."

Pros: "Very smooth, made it alive."

Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"

Cons: "Little more leg room required"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "All ok really"

Pros: "Seat was more comfortable than I had expected."

Pros: "Excellent value for money, great food which is normally a no no for me, Charming and attentive cabin crew service, making a journey enjoyable !"

Pros: "Enough room.. 3 seats for myselfe"

Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"

Pros: "Smooth flight, good breakfast options, easy check-in, flight was on time."
Cons: "I"

Cons: "Not enough legroom or seating area... Obviously you are downsizing, hoping that people will spend more to upgrade."

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Cons: "I was not able to check-in on my mobile phone. I was not able to check-in at the Kiosk. I had to check my carry-on bag all the way through to Los Angeles."

Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"

Pros: "Excellent service!!! The flight attendants were amazing! Everyone seemed happy and was very pleasant. Would definitely fly with Quantas again. Thank you for making my trip more enjoyable."

Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"

Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"

Pros: "All the good qualities are there. Check in was a breeze and very friendly handling our surfboard. However, the plane is old and needs a refurbishment, I can't believe how small the personal screens are! Whilst the crew were very friendly, always searching for a specific drink you request, but the food quality was average - I'm taking my own sandwich next time."

Pros: "Not enough food"

Pros: "The staff showed they cared about you comfort and tried to make sure you were enjoying your flight"
Cons: "All was great"

Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"

Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."

Cons: "The delay was out of there hands and other passengers did not listen to instructions So not there fault really"

Cons: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "Despite the delay, bording was quick and efficient, crew were welcoming"

Pros: "No delays!"

Pros: "Seats recline far, great for sleeping. Crew members very helpful and cheery. Food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "There was no option through Kayak to choose a meal option, but the standard meals were ok so wasnt the end of the world."

Cons: "The food options both free and purchased."

Pros: "All the crew were exceptional and the Captain was upbeat which was refreshing."
Cons: "All the staff were all extremely professional, just the plane was a little tired looking and grubby. When you sit for quite a while you cannot help but notice the dirt."

Pros: "The seats have a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "It is nice that they offer a complimentary meal. However, the vegetarian option did not taste good."

Cons: "Leaving the day before. Not having just one but three delays and three changes of flights."

Cons: "The computers continue to be problematic. It took 25 minutes at the checkin desk to get the system to take my document numbers. Also the in flight movie system has issues with touch sensing, often being slow to respond and misreading the location of the touch."

Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Crew attitude/explanation of why not able to move into empty row (exit row). Not a nice attitude."

Pros: "Crew very helpful, friendly, and profession,"
Cons: "I don't like the delay at Boarding and staying so long time at Aircraft before taking off"

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

Pros: "Larger plane."
Cons: "Stewards missed serving me twice. I pressed call button and was ignored. Kids meal and vegetarian preferences were ignored. Abu Dhabi made all Sydney passengers go through security including full cabin luggage checks twice. Abu Dhabi made me check in the duty free that I bought in Dublin. It was a connecting flight so why on earth was that something I had to do. I could not check in online, choose seats or update preferences. They sat my daughter separately and I was fobbed off in each airport and until Abu Dhabi where the cabin manager took so long I had to ask another passenger to swap. My son was sick as he walked off the ramp and I had to stand and direct people around the vomit for over 10 minutes while staff dragged their feet getting help. I will never fly Virgin with Etihad again."

Pros: "Good movies. Food was good. Flight was good."
Cons: "Not much leg room."

Cons: "Long delay before take off."

Pros: "It wasn’t outstanding but no major problems Whereas the boarding process for the flight from Melbourne to LAX was poor 3 and half hour delay on tarmac no air flow Only to have a person disembark as well further delay ( dont blame her) The staff were ok but their hollow reassurances about support that would be given on the ground in LAX because of the delays were just that Told virgin staff would be on hand to assist TOTALLY UNTRUE yes they we’re there but didNOTHING to assist with ongoing flight delays"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Miss Rankin was on board with me. She traveled to the back of the plane to an empty seat next to me from seat 9F."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in from the kayak app..."

Pros: "Thanks Simone and team."
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited"

Pros: "late take off lame excuses"

Pros: "An hour only"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "His a combotable airline"
Cons: "Landeing it Wendy"

Cons: "Cramped quarters"

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "I dislike having to use my personal mobile phone for in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Efficient loading and unloading, very friendly team"
Cons: "They claim to be full service and dinner was a bag of stale pretzels"

Pros: "Overall good service"

Pros: "I found my experience with Virgin very good. I don't fly too often. I am over 70 and found both the ground staff and on board so courteous and helpful. Would fly again with them. Take off and landings were so gentle which is something I fear, but they have inspired me to "take-off" and enjoy my life."

Pros: "The flight was very good."
Cons: "What I didn't like was having my flight changed from the original 7 pm to 5 hours earlier! It messed up our arrangements and meetings with others."

Cons: "Flight Canceled because they did not have a first officer that was within legal regulations to fly the leg. I had to stay the night in Adelaide, missing my morning appointment in Sydney and still pay for the hotel I booked in Sydney for that night. I had to pay for the cab back to the airport. I'm told I can go on line for refund as if I haven't already been inconvenience enough I have to deal with that. To add insult to injury my aisle seat was changed to a middle."

Pros: "staff onboard the flight were helpful to mum, she said they were really nice"
Cons: "I booked this flight for my mum who has dementia. I was told o pick her up at the excess baggage area, where her walker would be and that she would be brought by staff there via wheelchair. After 45mins and no mum, I asked staff where she was. They said they were waiting for me at the gate as they didn't have enough staff to bring her, and I couldn't take her walker through security, so I had to go there and pick her up (passing 4 staff members with golf carts just sitting and waiting). luckily she wasn't distressed, but when I got to her, the man at the desk was then told over the radio tthat he could bring her down... poorly organised. Not the end of the world, because she was okay, but it could have been really upsetting for her otherwise."

Pros: "Always fly VBA and usually great"
Cons: "Madeleine my cabin staff member was extremely rude and less than accommodating and when I tried to broach it with the Cabin Supervisor - he asked me firstly "'have you done anything to upset her"? Terrible form Virgin Australia. A complaint has been tweeted and shared direct with VBA online."

Pros: "....rather than the Spirit Air of Australia, Jetstar. Free bag check and snack, better seats."

Pros: "on-board entertainment"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Left late."

Pros: "Flight was on time and service was excellent."
Cons: "No entertainment on board."

Pros: "Kept us informed of progress, snacks and drinks, upgrade to extra legroom at no charge"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was on time, landed early, service was good."

Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Had to disembark due to light malfunction. 6 hours later we took off. I had paid extra to depart in that early flight, Virgin only gave us an $8 voucher- $8 doesn't go very far in an airport restaurant. Issue should have been fixed before passengers boarded. First time flying with them and am pretty disappointed. However, am happy they didn't crash us. I guess that's what really matters. Excellent cabin crew, they all went the extra mile during the entire debacle."

Pros: "Seating was ok and staff friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment or even papers on a 2 hour flight. Refreshment menu is pretty awful and expensive."

Pros: "simple and not fussy. I love priority boarding"
Cons: "can never get enough air when stuck on the tarmac. those overhead vents do very little"
