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

Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"
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: "Thanks Simone and team."
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited"
Cons: "When booking nothing was said if you are traveling short hours like 3 or less even you are traveling international you have to pay for every baggage that you have to check in so we were surprised that we have to pay $230 for the 2 package we check in . Last time we have to use this airline"
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: "Easy access from both front and back of plane."
Cons: "Stewardess got frustrated with my son ( almost yelling at him) instructing him to open the shade after the flight ended speaking Chinese to him. Though my son is half Asian, he doesn't speak a word of Chinese, she should have started with English !!! It was a flight from Australia for god sake."
Pros: "Virgin does a great job for a great price. Having Resided in the USA for 12 years I've flow many times across the pacific on each of the airlines and I can confidently says they are lightyears better than any of the American Airlines. On my return trip from Sydney I had hit some extraordinary traffic and it took 2hrs to get to the airport in what is usually a 40min drive. This resulted in me arriving less than 1hour from the flights departure time, the checkin staff did what they could to keep me on the flight as planned. Staff in all areas were great, it always a fresh breath of air when I board a virgin Australia flight, so different than traveling in the US of A...."
Cons: "The Food on Virgin Australia is ok. From the United States to Sydney it was average, on the return leg the quality was much better. They served 2 meals and a mid-flight snack. Their snacks and water station Mid plane is a very welcome touch on the long haul flights. Perhaps one more pass with the full drinks cart will help them join the heavyweights at Qantas."
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"
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"
Pros: "The time it took to get to Brisbane"
Cons: "My bags were tampered with in some way"
Cons: "the food, esp breakfast. Very poor"
Cons: "An earlier flight was apparently got cancelled so my husband and I got split up, each landing a middle seat, not together. That was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "the crew was amazing"
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "May be offered water to everyone."
Cons: "I cannot believe that when I put the table down I could not move & at 80 kg I was by no means the biggest person on that plane!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew is beautifull"
Cons: "The time schedule"
Pros: "Base price for flight was insanely cheap, booked six months in advance."
Cons: "Drastically different bag weight requirements than my connecting flight meant I had to shuffle everything around to meet the carry-on limits, then pay $100+ as my check bag went up two levels. Even anticipating this, it still cost double what I was expecting; must have been the difference between advance payment and day-of rates, but the degree of difference in cost left me feeling swindled."
Cons: "Hardly any ice When the people in front reclined their seats I couldn’t hardly move Late as udual"
Pros: "Efficient on time"
Cons: "One young cabin crew member was very polite and welcoming - ? Angela The other older woman would not even acknowledge me or say hello / goodbye despite me saying hello"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."
Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."
Pros: "Low initial fair if you have no luggage."
Cons: "Jetstar Charges for everything. Each bag over 7 kg. $360 charge for luggage. 4 bags. Obscene. If you wait until the airport to add bags they charge more. Unfortunately I waited. They claim the check in process should have been clear to me that I needed to check in bags in advance. It really did not. The website is deceptive and tries to get you to check-in without mentioning the excess charge. Employees seem to enjoy gouging customers at the terminal. Charge for soda? Employees were rude. Terrible service and airline. Avoid at all costs."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The rear of the plane was filled with screaming babies, loud uncontrolled children kicking the seats in front of them (mine). Equally loud mothers baby-talked continuously to their offending offspring with no effect. Cabin staff made no attempt to control the noise levels. I recognize some of these small children could have been suffering ear pain from the cabin pressure changes but trained cabin staff could have offered remedies for this. It does not explain the continuous screaming at cruising altitude. I recognize that JETSTAR is an intentionally cheap and nasty airline. I reluctantly took this flight because there was no quality service (like QANTAS) at the time I required. I accept the lack of amenities offered by REAL airlines like complimentary food, drink, entertainment and healthy legroom are the cost of cheap travel but I would have happily paid a higher price for QANTAS had there been a flight. I will not fly JETSTAR again and if no alternative exists with QANTAS, I will choose another airline in spite of my long allegiance to QANTAS CC: QANTAS"
Cons: "One of the flight attendent was not nice with us"
Cons: "They didn’t advise of the extreme low weight limit for carryon luggage until you get to the gate! Then slap on extreme checkin rates to get the bag onto the plan!"
Cons: "Unexpected fees"
Pros: "I wasn’t able to select a seat and was assigned a middle seat, but the service desk agent at ADL moved me to an aisle seat without charge. Food was reasonable value and tasty, if cold (who refrigerates a muffin?!)"
Cons: "Usual Jetstar pain having to call to add extra luggage (qantas booking) and then curiously Jetstar telling me to ring qantas for an updated itinerary"
Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"
Pros: "Decent leg room for a 6ft person. More than most US flights"
Cons: "Zero entertainment"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No water"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 3 hours but communication was good."
Pros: "Fairly much on time"
Cons: "My muffin was served to me cold. $5 for a cold muffin. Next time I’ll get a hot chocolate instead."
Pros: "Extra leg room with upgrade"
Cons: "Seat too close to tiolet"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "I'm a thin man and am 5'9" (pretty average height) and I couldn't fit comfortably in my seat. The space between rows was so tight my knees were squished into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was relatively nice."
Cons: "A lot of crying babies. No food or entertainment included for the 9.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and arriving good checking."
Cons: "The plane is very basic no entertainment very dull."
Cons: "The carry-on baggage policy is ridiculously unfair and they don't tell you about the 7kg carry-on restriction at the desk but charge you 50 dollars at the gate when you don't have any other options but pay before you miss the flight"
Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"
Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."
Pros: "Smooth transition for daughter who needed assistance to board"
Cons: "Having to sit apart especially when there were vacant seats"
Cons: "Children 12 and 10 booked online to fly to Melbourne for Easter. I rang the call centre to ensure they could travel together unaccompanied, as website was not clear. I was advised they could, and because I was concerned I asked this be noted on our booking so we wouldn't have any issues at the gate. I was reassured the children could travel and they made a note as requested. Turn up for our flight today and at the gate after saying goodbye to my children, they're stopped from entering the plane and I'm told they can't travel, despite the advice I received from the call centre and the note on our booking showing we were given this advice. We did everything right to make sure we could travel, just to be refused at the gate. Disgusting."
Cons: "Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. 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: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."
Pros: "We had to change our flight and were still able to get a good flight and seats"
Cons: "Paying for food and drink"
Pros: "I like the fact that when you book a flight you then have to pay for a seat .... What do you expect us to stand ! then you have to pay for baggage and all the other hidden costs .... after you have payed !"
Cons: "Dont have a credit card and they say we will be only taking credit card for beverages . On the flight over they said the reason was because we came from Bali and had no change but why the flight from Adelaide so again couldn't buy anything... Great service !"
Pros: "Even when delayed, the outcome is still alright. I love it when the pilot informs the passengers of the delay. The crew were really nice and the pilot too."
Cons: "The staff in the check in counter could be a bit friendlier. The person seemed angry ,no smile at all."
Pros: "JetStar was the only carrier offering a non-stop from Adelaide to Cairns. That's why we chose it."
Cons: "Be aware that you get a 7 kg carry-on allowance, and pay for checked luggage, by weight. Cheapest to buy when you book the ticket, can be purchased before you get to the airport, and very expensive at the airport. Seats are jammed together, very little legroom. Best to know going in that it is a low-cost, no frills, no space airlines."
Cons: "We booked through Kayak and weren't told that when you book a flight with Jetstar, you get NO BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE. ZERO, ZIP, NIL. We didn't know this and assumed like other Australian and New Zealand carriers, we would each get one free bag, so I went online and paid $25 for a third bag. When we checked in for a domestic flight, we were told that we would have to pay $400 to send our luggage with us. THAT WAS MORE THAN WE PAID FOR OUR SEATS! We were also told that had we paid for our luggage ahead of time, it would have only been $60. Be very careful if you fly this airline. Make sure you know what is and what is not included with your ticket, especially if you use a third party to purchase your tickets. PS - All drinks (including coffee, tea, soda, etc.)are extra. Frankly, I'm surprised they don't charge for using the toilet in flight"
Pros: "personality of the team - very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "When I booked from USA thru kayak I was told I would have 1 checked bag & 1 carry on . At airport I was charged $682 for luggage cause " I didn't say I was flying with luggage "supposedly opting out of the $ 35.00 fee for luggage. Only other option was to re-book for next day loosing out of bookings in Cairns which was not an option. Many other passengers on our flight faced same predatory practices by Jetstar. Gate agent said website changed to be more transparent. This is not true Luggage fees more than doubled cost of flight. This is only direct flight from Adelaide and you're trapped .""
Pros: "When we finally worked out where we were suposed to go the staff were very nice. Good diversity of people although nearly all very young."
Cons: "long queues again for checking in and baggage check. No signage for bus to domestic air terminal or even a general direction. Just have to keep asking randome people in flouro jackets where we should go. Then bus very crowded."
Cons: "The original flight was canceled and Jetstar put us on a later Qantss flight. The Qantss flight was good, but there was a lot of stress and uncertainty up until we were able to check in for our flight the day of the trip. It is clear Jetstar canceled its flight because the plane would not have been full."
Cons: "Spent 260 dollars on extra baggage fees, and you had to buy everything on board as an extra charge coffee, juice, anything. Total rip off"
Pros: "Awesome lady at check in."
Cons: "Just disappointing to need to pay for a cup of coffee. This is just too cheap to feel good about."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Crew were not aware I had a starter plus package which included a food voucher. This often happens with Jetstar and is annoying when you have paid for the extras. Also flight was delayed and I had to make a connecting flight. Would have been good if crew ensured people did not straggle when boarding with the appropriate announcements."
Cons: "over charging for carry on"
Pros: "The crew was reasonably friendly"
Cons: "Be aware of baggage weight limits and hi bag fees. Limited drink options on plane."
Cons: "Seat in front was up against my knees, and it was very hot on the plan. Pay the extra if traveling anymore than a few hours."
Cons: "excessive baggage fees unfair for international travelers...should state on their web site this airlines is not international traveler friendly we charge high rates for baggage so do not use us unless you have no bags...crew was unfriendly and land reps must get paid commission on what they can overcharge passengers."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. In addition, At time of boarding, I was carrying a very light carry on. 9lbs. Only airline I've heard charging $50AUS, if it's over 7lb. Unheard of. (For safety reasons). Bull. Many other passengers had plenty of larger and heavier baggage of which I pointed out. Matthew (at the gate) mentioned it didn't matter, because I was the one being selected, (in other words, I was the one that looked most like a tourist). I had a very light LV carry on duffle bag. People were carrying rolling luggage.... While the payment didn't bother me, what bothered me was the fact of having to put my luggage understand. Seats in plane were ridiculously uncomfortable. Unlike anything else."
Cons: "I was charged $50 dollars for the check-in luggage that I was not happy. I booked the airticket very early so I was not sure the weight of my luggage would be. I get used to have the free check- in luggage so I forgot about it until I did it at the airport. I prefer the airline to have the charge including the luggage into the airfare than check how many Kg of luggage the customers take at the airport. This makes the procedure of check-in take more time."
