Cons: upon arrival in LA, I was advised that my luggage has been checked in straight to Seattle, but upon reaching Seattle I was advised that the luggage has been misplaced and they would deliver it in the afternoon to my hotel. Upon waiting for over 12 hours and a number of phone calls to both delta and virgin I was advised that my luggage hasn't even left Sydney and they are not sure when they can deliver it. I have now missed an important work meeting that I came over for and have been in the same clothes for 48 hours Without my clothes and my critical blood pressure medication. I am frustrated/disappointed/furious would be an understatement. I have travelled with a number of other airlines, but this was by far the worst experience
Pros: It was a very good flight and on time. The food was very authentic and tasty!
Cons: The airport need to expand the number of runways. Always late leaving or arriving because they can't handle the traffic and especially in bad weather.
Pros: I liked that nothing was a hassle to get to, the staff were amazing and the pilot was well-skilled.
Cons: My only con was the fact that there were many people around me coughing. That's not your fault though, I understand. But still, it was nasty.
Pros: This time I didn’t have to go into the corral till close to boarding I still can’t believe you cannot bring bottles of water from vendors to bring on the plane if it was allowed I wouldn’t have to keep calling the crew to bring water.. after second request the crew knew I wanted water... flight late
Cons: Allow bottled water on the plane ... or at least sealed bottled water!!
Cons: Good seat on Virgin VA1 51H and lucky for me there's no one seated beside me I had two seats all to myself. They run out of chicken and had to settle for vege curry which was ok. Purchased the wifi the entire flight which was awesome.
Pros: Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst.
Cons: Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies.
