Airline reviews

Pros: "Super smooth flight, flight attendants were incredibly friendly and hospitable"

Pros: "The service and entertainment provided"

Cons: "We left about a half hour late, but made up some of the time in the air."

Pros: "Crew was good. Seats somehow seemed narrower than normal flights I have taken with Qantas. Sat in middle not even enough space to drink tea comfortably. Wouldn't want to be in that position for any longer flights."
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"

Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."

She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am.

Pros: "The crew was helpful. Food was good. Really like the individual entertainment screens!"
Cons: "Sad because it was more crowded and we couldn't get by a window. On top of that, the sky cam must have been broken so we couldn't even watch from our screens. I won't travel on a Friday again. Would be nice to have a bit more leg room!"

Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"

Pros: "All the good qualities are there. Check in was a breeze and very friendly handling our surfboard.

Pros: "Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system"

Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."

Cons: "The delay was out of there hands and other passengers did not listen to instructions So not there fault really"

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: "Entertainment system wasn’t working"

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

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

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"

Cons: "It got very cold and I was freezing"

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: "The Virgin Airline does a GREAT job of making flights "top notched!" We've flown both Virgin America & Virgin Australia and found both to be both comfortable and entertaining. The food was tasty and filling and came at good intervals. We loved the "free" wine served with our meals! Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "I'd like more choices in the music department. Some blues, light classicals, smooth jazz, etc."

Cons: "No entertainment"

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: "We reserved seats together and there were changed without reason"

Pros: "Nice crew."

Cons: "They claim to be full service and dinner was a bag of stale pretzels"

Pros: "Virgin Australia is fine, it's eDreams travel agency who is shoddy"

Pros: "flight attendants have great attitude"
Cons: "1 hour delayed , not hot drinks nor 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."

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"
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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and changed to two hours later with only 5 hours notice."

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: "In this time of Covid-19 the few passengers on the plane were all sat in the same area. There was plenty of room to put at least one seat between passengers"

Pros: "Check-in staff excellent, helped me get through a tight schedule."

Cons: "Refused to refund my purchase when I wasn't able to use my ticket"
