Pros: Plane seats are ok - a bit annoying that there is no on board entertainment and you have to use your own phone etc. The butter chicken was edible.

Cons: It'd be better if there were a selection of direct flights to Canberra. It's quicker to fly to Bali! We spent over 8 hours including wait time to travel from Canberra to Perth - via Sydney. No bag drop in Canberra - that was a surprise.

Pros: Food and crew!

Cons: The moment they gave out the ice cream it broke in half and began melting. Its hard to eat in the dark and turning on the light with a sleeping neighbor is no fun. Not the best choice to provide it as a popsicle... maybe a cup would be best.

Pros: Neat in flight entertainment app that lets you watch, read, listen while you fly, right on your own device. Very nice touch.

Cons: The check in process. No one got there right when the airport opened at 0400 and they took their time getting the check in counters clean and ready for the day, having us all stand in line waiting to be checked in.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: The crew was SO polite, hospitable, professional the helpful. They were so kind when someone (us!) had a screaming four year old we were trying to calm down. They offered her a hot chocolate.... so kind and helped immensely. We were very impressed and will look to fly internationally with Virgin AU.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

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.

Pros: First rate crew, friendly and professional through the long flight. The food was excellent and the crew offered snacks and drinks between meals. I paid the extra to sit in a section upstairs that I was able to get up and move around frequently.

Cons: It’s a long flight but that can’t be helped. Economy seats are really cramped and so I paid $190 for more leg room on the way back. Would highly recommend. I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
