Airline reviews

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

Pros: "Seat material (leather) and cushion was comfortable."
Cons: "No leg room, my knees were pressed into the back of the seat in front, which became very painful. No wriggle room without disturbing person alongside. A ridiculous "snack". What happened to biscuits and cheese? Not trendy any longer i presume. Even Qantas serve that! No wine. Again, ridiculous. Condescending stewards, if that's what you are supposed to call them these "woke" days."

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

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: "Safe trip"
Cons: "Better food and choice of drinks"

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

Pros: "The seat was ok. The cabin crew good"
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."

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."

Cons: "Virgin app did not authorise my boarding credentials"

Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t working"

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

Pros: "Director flight at a good time"
Cons: "nothing"

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: "Crew was rude and discriminatory with Passports, for 18 hours stay layover I had to sit in chairs,. Not hotel or Lounge provided. Which is against international laws."

Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."

Pros: "The flight was 45 minutes because they put on the burner"
Cons: "The fact that 8.30 flight is delayed 2.5 hours and they had no other aircraft available to schedule ."

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

Cons: "Long delay before take off."

Pros: "I didn’t die"
Cons: "Where’s the coffee? What about a proper snack? Why are the stewardesses so grumpy?"

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: "Great service and a free hot meal! Couldn't ask for more."

Pros: "Complimentary snack and drink."

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"

Pros: "flight was delayed."
Cons: "service"

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: "Easy flight and transfer to domestic."

Pros: "Great crew and good service."
Cons: "Two things - I dont like is the size of the seats. They are far too small. Most people are relatively big these days and when you sit next to a large person or between two large people the whole flight is so uncomfortable. The other thing is the air vents - no where near enough air coming through those - please fix :("

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."

Cons: "Flight was very bumpy, and the air inside the plane was stuffy. I felt nauseated all the way through from take off to landing"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight to go on time"

Pros: "The flight was during very bad weather and the pilots did a great job of keeping us informed and feeling safe."
Cons: "Due to the weather snacks were handed out but no water. Water used to be provided in single serves. As it is now poured into cups it was not provided on the flight. This seems like cost saving that is unacceptable to customers paying the same price with no access to a drink on the flight."

Pros: "The service was good even for such a short flight (20 mins)"
Cons: "Was an old aircraft so the interior could do with updating"

Pros: "The sense of really flying!"
Cons: "Some of the turbulence."

Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. Great landing!"
Cons: "Leg room a little tight."

Pros: "25 minute flight, no need for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Could use some more leg room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Limited baggage allowance , check in clerk over officious and totally unhelpful. "Safety" factor re weight used interminably, why not upgrade fleet if safety is so important ? Asked how I was to get luggage not on flight , told " not my problem , read fine print ""

Cons: "Rang 6 hours in advance to say miss a fight from Brisbane to Adelaide due to flooding in mount isa bus delayed for 3 hours and was only let know 20 minutes after bus was suppose to leave charleville . Would have been nice to get a credit."

Pros: "Beautiful polite and professional ladies air hostesses"
