Cons: At Sydney, 6-7 check-in agents for probably 400+ passengers, nearly an hour wait. Airline model is cheap seats, then charge like hell for everything else. Want seat selection or movies or preassigned seat or uncramped seat? Pay up. Ended up assigned next to toilet on a 10-hr red-eye flight.

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: Seating on exit row was spacious . Low fare .

Cons: Their baggage fees !! Watch out, you can really get stung ! They don't really do a good job of explaining their rules on the web site. . I had a family of three traveling and bought 20 kilos of baggage allowance each . Didn't know if we could share the weight allowance between us or not. Also was not clear you could not just purchase another bag allowance at airport , although they do say purchasing at the airport will be more expensive. Got that right !! They charge $25 a kilo for overage at the counter !! So any overage adds up fast.

Okay 5.0

Pros: Efficient boarding and grateful for the spare seat with the baby on our lap. Crew was nice enough.

Cons: We waited for a $9 toastie for 25 minutes- and had to remind the crew to get it. Disappointed that they are so cheap the only free thing on a 10 hour flight was water- after paying for checked bags, one coffee, and one sandwich, the extras made them more expensive then other "non budget" airlines.

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.
