Airline reviews

Pros: "Pretty much all my needs/wants were seen to! Likewise, on the trans-ocean flight leg."
Cons: "Some fashion model wishing me happy flying? I really don't know. :)"

Pros: "Included check-in baggage"
Cons: "Food options on the menu are very limited"

Pros: "No delays!"
Cons: "I noticed some travellers confused by gate changes, I suspect this is due to a lack of attention on their behalf but clearly the messages hadn't gotten through."

Pros: "Boarding and flight time"
Cons: "Lounges were dirty"

Pros: "Crew were very attentive and polite. Better than Singapore or Air NZ."
Cons: "Self check in was chaos. Labeling suitcases was difficult to do yourself and many needed help. If you didn't follow instructions to the letter the auto reader didn't work. Many were very frustrated including Virgin staff who were clearly run off their feet trying to cope. Scrap the system ."

Pros: "The seat was ok. The cabin crew good"
Cons: "The food options both free and purchased."

Pros: "Amazing crew, food, and experience."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Crew were amazing, food was delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed with no explanation, we sat once boarded waiting to take off not knowing what the further delay was, ended up arriving and clearing customs an hour behind schedule. This is becoming more common with my flights with Virgin Australia."

Pros: "I was able to sleep"
Cons: "Making sure there was a vegan food option and the crew knew."

Pros: "All the crew were exceptional and the Captain was upbeat which was refreshing."

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: "The plane had few people so it was quiet."
Cons: "Meal was very average, captain speakers were very low and we couldn’t hear. The landing was rushed and rough even though it was good weather and plenty of space to slow down aircraft. No entertainment or offer to purchase/rent. The flight was delayed and we arrived one hour later."

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

Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t working"

Cons: "boarding, takeoff and landing all late, and forgot to serve my row with snack..."

Pros: "Plane was clean, crew were fantastic, food was acceptable"
Cons: "Seating doesnt allow a lot of leg room for taller people unless you want to pay more for Premium Economy, We travelled early December and the Entertainment still referred to the November listings"

Pros: "Crew was great as usual"
Cons: "2 young women begind me loud all they way, kicking the back of the seat and thumping on tray table, screaming bloody murder children"

Cons: "We were booked with a 45 min layover between flights, however they offboarded us and said that the minimum booking run is 1 hr required. Poor on Kayak end."

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."

Pros: "Everything was great. On time and very nice service Thanks"

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. Check-in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Boarding calls and process seemed a little disorganized. No in-flight entertainment system, only boy device, but with no ability to charge in-flight, battery length became a problem on a 3 hour flight."

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

Cons: "Dropping off bag queue took longer than checking in. Isnt the whole point of drop bag is to avoid waiting? Took so much longer. Nearly an hour on the queue"

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seat pitch was possibly the worst I have ever experienced. The plane was very old and totally cramped inside."

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

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."

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: "It was fine"
Cons: "Staff are rude sometimes."

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."

It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport."

Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Overcharged for baggage. $535 at the airport. Very surprised at the charge. I thought $50-$60 a bag...more like $135 a bag."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "smooth,effortless"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Baggage process is dumb."

Pros: "They left on time."
Cons: "The Jetstar checkin staff. They are not very friendly. I was a few kilos overweight and I had nothing but grief from them - as well as my purse put on the scales - which added to the weight. I have never had my purse put on the scales before. I ended up having to pay $160.00 Australian for a few kilos. My fare did not even cost that much. As far as I am concerned Jetstar need a watchdog to take this up on travellers behalf. How can a few filos cost that much - when you can book your luggage through for $25.00."

Cons: "Oberstar nickels and dimes you. $4.00 coffee, you have to be kidding"

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ripped me and my sis off for over 120 bucks in luggage fees!!!! No one could explain ability to pay online for a lot less!!!!! So freaking unacceptable!!!!! Plus they damaged a new bag and tell me they aren't liable!!!! Don't ever buy a ticket with JETSTAR! Freaking waste of money! Stick with air New Zealand"

Pros: "Easy booking"
Cons: "Maybe"
