Pros: "Service, food entertainment and catching up the lost time"
Pros: "Crew were nice and entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Flight was 1hr 40 minutes late and had to catch a bus to the end of the airport to even board. As well as shared terminal gates..."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight could not be shorter. Otherwise a perfect flight, and well worth the price."
Pros: "New screens new seats and very modern"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been shorter."
Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"
Pros: "Great experience - love travelling Qantas on International flights"
Pros: "crew was very nice"
Cons: "entertainment system malfunction needed a long time to reboot"
Cons: "Meal for children first"
Cons: "Very good airlines"
Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"
Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."
Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"
Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."
Pros: "Flight departed slightly late but arrived on time. Great movies to choose from. They gave you little kits that had a sleep mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, and ear plugs. The food and drinks available were good. There was a USB and outlet for charging."
Cons: "My husband’s screen didn’t work for watching movies and his seat did not recline, but mine did."
Pros: "It was my first A380 flight, and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful. The staff was pleasant, but could have been more attentive. It felt like some cared and others did not."
Cons: "I have flown millions of miles with Qantas, but it's been more than 10 years since my last flights. My expectations were high and i the end I only felt "OK" about the experience. The seats are not competitive with other business classes in the sky. I realize that is about to change. I flew Air Canada into Australia, and while my seat was unfortunately broken, the capabilities and overall comfort of their seats is far superior to Qantas. The business class lounge in Sydney had very poor food options in my opinion, and I was quite peckish after having skipped lunch to travel to the airport for a 4pm flight. The food options on the flight were much better, though overall options / taste were just OK."
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."
Pros: "Crew fantastic, food was delicious, boarding efficient - but they use a 737 on this leisure route which is a bit arduous for what is a 6+ hour flight."
Cons: "Use of 737 and lacklustre entertainment system compared to A330"
Cons: "Never went, why would you not know that?"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."
Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"
Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"
Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."
Pros: "Excellet service. I liked where I seat that was very much appreciated. Its nice to have delightful meal and having bottle of water in seat pocket was a nice thought. Boarding was excelent. It was called section by section. Cabin crew were very friendly and attentive. I always like to fly with Qantas"
Cons: "What I don’t like is always late in boarding... But having said never be late in arrival. Always arrived in time .."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas domestic is always chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers"
Pros: "Great service, flight was not packed and had an exit row to myself."
Cons: "Delayed by a half hour. Better than the 2 hours the last time I took this flight 3 weeks ago."
Pros: "Roomy, boarding was efficient, clean"
Cons: "some crew member favoring, service attitude"
Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."
Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "With an almost 3 hour delay the lack of information from Qantas staff was infuriating and we were held in what felt like a ‘holding pen’"
Pros: "I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage."
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "Seat so small , lack of back support and cushioning"
Cons: "Seat is so uncomfortable. For the 6 hr trip need a back adjustment for such a cramped environment. Need review my future travel on Qantas"
Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."
Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"
Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"
Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."
Cons: "Lack of ipads for inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."
Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."
Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Angle lie seats. Controls for seating and entertainment fidgety"
Cons: "No any explanation to delayed about 2 hours that resulted in missing the connected flight for more than 10 hours."
Pros: "Close to two hours delay leaving Australia"
Pros: "The crew in the ground and plane were very accommodating for Sydney to New York flight."
Cons: "On the flight from New York to Sydney the crew were rude and indifferent to needs even condescending."
Pros: "I just enjoy Virgin as the crew are always nice"
Cons: "I find the seats a little uncomfortable. But it’s possible just me"
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."
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: "Virgin lounge staff were super friendly and helpful - getting me on an earlier flight and giving me a spare seat next to me!"
Cons: "nothing negative to say"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "better movies"
Cons: "flight cancelled"
Pros: "I did not like anything at all"
Cons: "They have problem finding my ticket because they say delta rebooked my ticket and they don’t have the information. I almost missed my flight for that reason. I don’t think I will ever book with Virgin Australia again"
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: "Taking my elderly mother up to the Gold Coast to visit my sister is always a challenge but thanks to the beautiful staff at Virgin it was made so easy. Just outstanding customer service. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"
Cons: "My ticket was deemed void when I was checking in and I could not get on the flight. I will never book via kayak again."
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."
Pros: "Left a few minutes late but arrived early, so all good. Comfortable, flight, friendly crew. Well done."
Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."
Pros: "Good flight, punctual, on time."
Cons: "Food a tiny chocalate bar. If VA advertises that it serves food on domestic flights, it should be proper food!"
Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."
Cons: "That the flight didn't wait 15 minutes for me to get on it."
Pros: "The service from the crew was great."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian, the Meals offered were really bad and i was disappointed that I wasn’t offered some of the more appealing vegetarian options that were available for the rest of the passengers"
Cons: "In spite of the instructions I was served meat ."
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!"
Pros: "The boarding process, on board entertainment, and the flight condition were good."
Cons: "I ordered Muslim meal for myself and Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter. While going to Australia they provided Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter and said they forgot to get the Muslim meal. The air hostess said she will look into this so that it would not repeat. During my return from Australia they did not provide Asian vegetarian for my daughter and no Muslim meal for me. And the air host said they would look into this and see that it does not happen during my return. I said this is the return trip. They provided some vegetarian food that not good. And during the return there was no vegetarian choices for the breakfast. The air host didn't even bother to ask my daughter about the food. Very sad."
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: "Attendants were pleasant enough"
Pros: "Quick and efficient loading process"
Pros: "Great service and staff."
Cons: "The non existent baggage drop at Tullamarine. The in flight snacks needs improving."
Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Minimal amenities"
Pros: "Great flight, easy-no delays."
Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness of stewards, seats."
Cons: "a more substantial breakfast snack would have been nice and then the option to select meal type. I left the supplied cookie as I am vegan."
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!!!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by two hours, the earphone jack only worked through one side."
Pros: "Everything was great. On time and very nice service Thanks"
Cons: "Really tight seating. My knees hit back of other seat."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable flight."
Cons: "Stuck sitting on plane for 3 hours, caused missing connection, next flight 9 hours later! Had to fight for and day connection and meal allowance despite long delay."
Pros: "attentive service and relatively comfortable, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Meal/snack/food was atrocious, was the most disappointing excuse of a snack. We had a choice of a few pieces of cut apple or an extremely thin sad looking granola bar. Expect airlines that offer “full service” to offer something better for the price, also the fact that no fixed TVs or iPads and you have to use your phone to watch movies, at least get a phone holder on the back of the seat."
Cons: "Half hour delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew, landed on time"
Cons: "Atrocious food"
Pros: "Very quick flight - after all the other hours spent in the air this was most welcome."

Pros: "liked the seats they were big an comfy"
Cons: "food is NON-EDIBLE"
Pros: "A cold drink just when I needed it. Thank you"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."
Cons: "I don't understand why we had a 4hr 40 min flight plan which went way up the Australian coast instead of going in a direct line from Melbourne to Christchurch, when the ticket noted about a 3hr 40 min flight time. If you can enlighten me that would be appreciated."
Pros: "Free drink and snack Courteous service Arrived on time Free registered luggage"
Pros: "The flight was good, there was enough leg room."
Cons: "My husband and I are seniors, luckily we exercise daily, because we were told to take the stairs down to the airplane and had to walk to the plane in the rain and then walk up the stairs to the plane. When we boarded we actually should have gone through the plane as our seats were closer to the front. The stewardess should have used common sense and directed everyone through the plane, there was absolutely no reason to send people through the rain."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing - well done Jetstar"
Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"
Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "Coffee free"
Pros: "I had 3 seats which was nice."

Cons: "Flight delayed by almost an hour."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"
Cons: "The coffee"
Cons: "Delayed as usual - luggage check again"
Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"
Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Pros: "not many sitting accommadtion chairs were at gate 47 Melb Airport no reading papers were available"
Cons: "not many seats at gate 47"
Pros: "Boarded well, wasn’t overly populated"
Cons: "The staff were so rude and acted like they didn’t want to be there, acted like pouring you a glass of water was the biggest inconvenience in the world. Had to pay for inflight entertainment, no snacks or food whatsoever. But the attendants weren’t attentive or even in the slightest bit polite."
Pros: "We were surprised when we boarded the plane that we were flying with the new dremliner. The boarding was extremely efficient. They provided us with free movie too on board."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The landing was super rocky"
Pros: "Good movies.. they paid for my hotel and shuttle once flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hrs then it was cancelled due to pilot being sick. They never said on the flight how much the baggage fee would be which ended up being 150$.. which is unprecedented. Had to pay for food and drinks even after getting delayed and cancelled.. they should have been included"
Cons: "Crew attitude"
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."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Our complaint is the flight was over 5 hours long and you could not even get a complimentary glass of water, soda or juice. We found this to be a major out point with regards to service. The other issue was the no free TV. Lastly, I have never in all my flights had to pay such an outrageous fee to pre-check a suitcase. Thank you for listening."
Cons: "Everything....no food, no entertainment"
Cons: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."
Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Lateness of flight"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
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."
Cons: "Late leaving.late arriving.delays after landing"
Cons: "Jetstar's smooth checking in process, customer service, timeliness."
Cons: "Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers."
Pros: "Customer service was great.Flight was on time and the weather was good for a day and a half"
Cons: "I did not like it when i got to the airport up there at 7:15 pm and when my Brand new suitcase came around on the carousel it had 2 smashed handles on it.I Reported it straight away to the people in departures.The young guy their gave me a number to ring, which i will be doing tomorrow"
Pros: "Staff very professional, food is decent"
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."
Pros: "Very bad entertainment food not that good. Check in at Melbourne airport very mess"
Cons: "Everything. Food not good. Entertainment very bad check in at Melbourne airport very bad. The seat of the business class are not comfortable very small not worth the price we pay"
Cons: "Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead."
Pros: "They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before."
Cons: "No further updates when revised departure time had past and we were still waiting in line. Delay avoidable and not acceptable for first flight of the morning"
Cons: "I find the whole paying for all the extras a pain and probably won't do it again. Otherwise okay."
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"
Cons: "Lack of legroom."
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"
Cons: "On an international connection I had to collect my baggage, clear customs, and re-check for my onward trip."
Pros: "Kayak never told me that there is going to be check in bag fees. I was charged 160 dollars for 1 bag. Kayak should have informed me upfront. Thanks Sameer"
