Top airlines flying to Adelaide
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Movies good Boarding and luggage retrieval good"
Cons: "Arrived an hour late Was another passengers fault tho but annoying"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and boarding was slow due to only using one aircraft door."
Cons: "great water service"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and responsive."
Cons: "1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time."

Cons: "Bit more variety."

Pros: "Seats, entertainment, meals."
Cons: "Late out of the gate. Missed connecting flight."
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: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "No entertainment if you didn’t have their app installed. Food was average. No room near our seats for our bags in the overhead bins because crew & other passengers further down the plane had already used them. Had to wait outside in the cold to board. One of my bags was broken on this leg! Tight seating! Not impressed."
Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."
Pros: "We arrived in Adelaide"
Cons: "Having to wait in a massive line for an hour to check in our bags after landing in Melbourne from a Virgin Australia international flight - there should be a special counter for guests who are transferring."
Pros: "Easy checkin online. Easy bag drop at airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Snack enjoyable."
Cons: "Typical seating, far too cramped. Person beside me encroached on my personal space throughout the flight. Thank goodness it was only a 2hr flight between Melbourne & Brisbane."
Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"
Cons: "Going Melbourne delayed nearly 1.5hour Back home Brisbane another nearly 1.5hour and gate change a few times Very very bad experience"
Pros: "Virgin are usually one of the most competitive, efficient and pleasant airlines to fly."
Cons: "Plane delayed for over an hour with minimal updates. We finally boarded when we ought to have been arriving. A regular ipdate would have helped managed things at the other end better."
Pros: "they eventually returned it"
Cons: "they lost my bag"
Cons: "they lost our bag on a direct flight, how can they do that? when we got there they only have an agent who told us to contact virgin airlines in melbourne!!!"
Pros: "Good Service"
Pros: "Very quick flight - after all the other hours spent in the air this was most welcome."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Free drink and snack Courteous service Arrived on time Free registered luggage"
Pros: "Good cup of tea. Good crew."
Cons: "the double biscuit is difficult to eat because it is too thick. It is quite tasty. However something savoury would be better e.g. cheese and jatz."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, then booked by Virgin without consultation, onto a flight via Sydney that would take 6 1/2 hrs to get there, had to request another flight but still lost most of the day of my holiday, plus left with many phone calls re change of rental car, arrival , parking bookings, and no compensation and then stress when I got to the airport and was told that despite being "booked " on the much later flight, now I might not actually have a seat. I had to wait while attendant at counter tried to find seats and only watch as they were taken by someone else several times. So unnecessarily stressful and misleading. Lost my original seats, had to sit separate from my companion, and no real concern by Virgin about their impact on customers' plans. Last time I flew, the plane was cancelled, and we had to wait hours for another one in the terminal, so I missed the body corporate meeting that was the ONLY reason I was flying to Brisbane, paying for overnight accommodation and car rental and flight and I MISSED it. Huge cost for NOTHING, as despite driving straight to the meeting, it was just finishing. Whilst at the airport trying to fly home, I heard another Virgin flight cancelled , again due to "unscheduled maintenance". Seems that maintenance and mechanical problems are common and way more common than they should be. So that is a big worry!"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "I didn't like seeing the build up of food and small rubbish in the seat tracks in front of me on both trips, there and back. It was revolting. Clearly the company vacuuming the carpet doesn't bother doing the job properly and doesn't take the time to look from the window seat position. Shocking indeed."
Pros: "Speed of service and willingness to help"
Pros: "Fast boarding, new aircraft, comfortable seats, flight was on time."
Cons: "Advertised as full service airline but food was lacking, general cleaning between flights not great."
Pros: "The flight was good. On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bag drop check in was terrible. So slow. Boarding wasn't efficient"
Pros: "The crew, the food, the overall experience was positive and pleasurable - especially since it was a 14 hour flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "The seats cushions - not the width of the seats or arm rests, but the cushions themselves could use some additional padding. I used a few blankets and pillow for extra comfort but that's the only negative I can think of. Again it was a 14 hour flight. Thanks! :-)"
Pros: "Every thing was smooth from check in to boarding. Flight on time. Crew were attentive."
Pros: "Economy X is fantastic, and really enjoy the boarding experience and the crew. left on time and arrived early. Excellent trip in that regard."
Cons: "Almost every time I travel on virgin, which is a lot. They serve a minim muesli bar. Come on Virgin what about changing that a bit. Qantas offer some really good options for not much more of a ticket price. This part of the Virgin Experience needs to change."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "way too noisy from the engines--was very draining horrible space in economy--jammed packed like cattle-this alone may cause me not to fly you again"
Cons: "I was unable to check in online and arrived in Melbourne 3 hours in advance of my flight. I had to stand in line for over an hour just to check in for my flight. It was a complete mess at the check in desk. There were several issues with other passengers that caused two gate agents to be tied up for upper 30 minutes. Rather than taking them to customer service they continued to block the line. Then with Economy gates being down to only 3 (with my guess at over 100 people waiting to check in) one of the agents used the economy line to service business class pasangers, when there were already 3 agents serving the business class patrons. While I understand business entitles you to special priorities but to have your economy passengers (who are all paying over $1500 a ticket) to have to wait so long for business passages to all walk straight get up can waiting 5 minutes felt very wrong and made many people upset. My family was waiting to see me off and subsequently got charges $30 in parking due to the delay in check in. Also communication at the gate was very poor. Flight was delayed several times due to wind and no announcement came from ground staff, only way I knew was due to an email. I could tell a lot of guests were very distressed. Very disappointed from a company that prides itself on service."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed without any explanation, and the staff member at the boarding desk was extremely rude when anyone dared approach her to ask what the hold-up was"
Cons: "Delayed flight Inaccurate baggage carousel information Lack of communication from Virgin"
Pros: "Good service, great flying, great experience."
Cons: "A larger variety of snacks would be nice (granola bars or pretzels for between meals)"
Cons: "my seat got changed"
Cons: "Plane interior was nauseatingly hot"
Pros: "All went well, smooth flight, more or less on time"
Cons: "Over priced food, in- flight entertainment, through an app had a poor selection of programs - seats feel more cramped than other airlines- lucky it was only a 1 hr flight..."
Pros: "entertainment is good"
Cons: "surely the food can be better than half a muesli bar"
Cons: "my flight got cancelled, and was not notified. got put on the next flight which was 6 hours later, So had to wait 6 hours to fly to melbourne."
Pros: "Virgin Australia is fine, it's eDreams travel agency who is shoddy"
Cons: "eDreams are incompetent and unethical. In my opinion they are scammers And operate an entrapment operation. Do not book through them and kayak should reconsider their association with third party booking group"

Pros: "Great crew and seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me was extra nervous which was a little un nerving"

Pros: "Nothing it’s budget for a reason. Not comfortable just anfl flight. You even pay for a blanket if your cold!"
Cons: "I was unwell had paid for a seat and requested if not a full flight to be moved so not sitting next to someone. Staff declined said it was full flight and rolled eyes. Asked on flight. Got told I could try to love after take off to a spare row 4 rows back."
Cons: "Slugged $60 for having one kg extra than on the flight down. Rep Australia in senior golf event ..given a wine box this was weighed too. What a rip off!"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable"
Pros: "Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward."
Cons: "Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra"

Cons: "No room and EVERYTHING was an extra charge---we didn't even get water without a charge."
Pros: "The advertised price before finding out about the Bundles."
Cons: "All the ridiculous add-ones for seat preference, food, entertainment, extra leg room, etc. Very misleading!! Difficulty with online check-in and trying to determine baggage needs before actually getting to the airport and then having to pay a ridiculously higher amount. Would have been better to pay the extra and fly on an airlines that puts customer service first."
Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"
Cons: "A metal bar was poking into my back from the seat (17D) - as if the padding had worn away and the seat frame exposed. Tray table had not been cleaned and was covered in crumbs"
Pros: "Accommodating crew & staff. She tried to help add ff miles at airport and when I thought I had lost my p'port tried helping. (I had put it in other side pouch & misplaced it). Found just prior to boarding. First time Jetstar, cheap and what I expected. Overnight Bali to ADL. My carry-on was under 7 kg & small 11 kg bag I checked ahead online for under $50 US. Already have booked economy fare to DRW, also CAIRNS."

Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Pros: "Good crew, easy flight. Front and rear plane entrance and exit."

Cons: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."
Cons: "didnt answer baggage questions ahead of time and wasn't clear on website, ended up costing over $100 *extra* to check bags than anticipated due to this - long lines, poor customer service"

Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats weren't the comfortable"
