Pros: "This is my third time flying with Virgin Australia from LAX to Sydney return. I LOVE this airline. The staff at every point are friendly, responsive, professional and helpful. I loved the service on board. Nothing seems to be too difficult (this was refreshing as I have flown on many flights throughout Asia and America where the service ethic was not strong. Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Trip was pretty standard."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, as soon as we landed in Melbourne, the plane had to shut down on the tarmac which then meant I missed my connecting flight and had to wait in the airport for 6 hours until the next flight.

Cons: "That the flight didn't wait 15 minutes for me to get on it."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Food (a muffin) was pretty basic, especially for an early morning flight."
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"

Pros: "Seat not very wide"
Cons: "Screaming kids in business & just behind business"
Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."
Cons: "Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages."

Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable, very noisy toilette"
Pros: "All were very good."
Pros: "Good coffee"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Plane was clean."
Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Be sure to pay for checking baggage when you purchase your ticket. I didn't because I thought we could carry our two small roller bags on board. We were not allowed to and had to pay $120!"
Cons: "Delayed as usual - luggage check again"
Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."
Cons: "Don't know what hours they work, but the crew were clearly fatigued and couldn't be bothered. They were still polite but really just could not be a***d! Flight delayed by 20 mins and no explanation until airborne."
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."
Pros: "Good service and nice people"
Cons: "Nothing everything was good"
Pros: "Good choices of flight times"
Cons: "Charge to check even 1 bag. Limited what we could buy."
Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."
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"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The landing was super rocky"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation."
Pros: "The price, the timing of the flights"
Cons: "Cheap thin seats squashed together means you can feel every time the person behind you moves. There were people yelling at each other because they were getting so annoyed by it."
Pros: "Magazine on the plane was good."
Cons: "We had to pay $400 dollars to check 4 bags (2 bags per person). The bags were not overweight or oversized. We were told we had purchased a ticket with no baggage. I am a frequent traveler ( 10 flights in 6 weeks) and have never experienced such charges for baggage. It was not clear at the time of purchase that there were different levels of tickets. The agents at the counter was only interested in maximizing the fees we were charged and not helping us with other options. The plane was late and there was very limited seating in the waiting area, so most people stood for the extra 40 minutes of the delay."
Cons: "very rude service from ground crew while disembarking the plane in hobart....find that lady another job or fire her"
Cons: "Didn’t even receive a cup of water"
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: "Considerate crew on the plane."
Cons: "Took us 3 attempts to send our 23kg luggage through automated stations due to multiple issues. We did not receive a gate number on the departure boards until 5 mins AFTER we were suppose to start boarding according to our boarding pass, so we had to rush through the airport to make the plane on time. Once we reached the gate with only minutes to spare Jetstar brought out a scale and decided it was time to weight the carry on luggage, anything over 7kg then had to be checked, no opportunity to move items into the bags already check that we had already paid for. Any refreshments on the plane had to be purchased seperately, cheap as!! This experience just felt like they were trying to take your money at every turn. Treat the service like a taxi, point A to point B only and KNOW THIER RULES before you show up otherwise the will screw you over."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No water"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very good"
Cons: "The flight was 5hrs 45 mins late"
Pros: "Ummm...ummm...the flight attendances had nice, orange jackets? I'm grasping at straws here..."
Cons: "Many, many things, starting with their ridiculous practice of weighing luggage and charging accordingly. I'm used to airlines charging for checked luggage, that's no problem, but to only allow 7 kg of weight on checked bags is basically forcing everyone to just check their luggage. I figured my bag, which could easily fit in their tight bins, would be fine for carry on. I was wrong. Then, because i didn't realize their ludicrous system, I had to pay more than double because 'the flight has already opened for checking in'. This airline is laughable. They might start out the 'least expensive' option but by the time you're done with them nickel and diming you it's better to just book the more expensive flight with a legitimate airline. Oh, and did I mention that I paid for seats up front (again, another tactic for milking you dry) and I was so crammed that I couldn't move my legs? This airline is pathetic. I learned my lesson and will never fly Jetstar"
Cons: "Too bad you have to pay for every service...seats, TV, food."
Pros: "cost effective, good flight."
Cons: "My flight was changed and I was not notified. I had to purchase another flight, which turned out to be quite expensive. I would like to be put in touch with someone that has the ability to provide me with a refund. Will you please send me the direct phone and/or email of said person. Thank you, Dean Cortez firstname.lastname@example.org 619-246-4647"
Pros: "The cabin staff were friendly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to excess baggage weight in hull. The baggage had to be unloaded and then reloaded again, while we sat on the tarmac for an hour."
