Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.
Cons: We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.
Pros: New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft).
Pros: Time management
Cons: More information about the terminals
Pros: The Dreamliner jet was fun to ride. The higher humidity levels allowed in it was definitely noticeable. The touch screens were responsive albeit the fact they'd have to occasionally reboot itself from system crashes. Tons of overhead compartment space.
Cons: They had problems finding my wife's name in check-in. Customer service on-board wasn't horrible, but I've experienced better. Bad bathroom maintenance on one flight left it without paper the entire trip.
Pros: The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment.
Cons: Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible.
Pros: We were pleasantly surprised by the legroom for the regular economy seats. We usually opt extra legroom because my husband is 6'4" but he was very comfortable on this flight. We fly often and on many different airlines, but Virgin always stands out for exceptional service, modern and clean planes (continuously attended to throughout the flight), better meals, friendly staff, extensive entertainment options...definitely one of the best overhaul international flights we've had.
Cons: The check-in procedure at Sydney Airport was a bit of a nightmare. Even the people who had checked in online had to wait in line (for 30 minutes-1 hour) to get boarding pass and check bags. We had carry-on bags only and still had to do this. I understand they need to recheck everyone's documents since the flight was headed to the US, but the available counters and process for moving customers along was very slow. Other than that, we had an excellent 5* star experience.
Cons: Hidden fees for baggage are exceptionally high and are structured to take advantage of first-time users who are not aware of Jetstar's baggage policies. They burned my wife and I for $695 on checked bag fees on our golf clubs. This after they were "nice enough" to round the weight down a bit. Even in $AUS, that is a nasty surprise at the airport. The only way I would fly Jetstar again is for a short-haul, no-checked-baggage flight.
Cons: THE SERVICE WAS EXTREMELY POOR AND THE STAFF WERE RUDE...MY DAUGHTER WAS STANDING DUE TO A BACKACHE AND WAS TOLD BY A STEWARD THAT SHE COULD NOT STAND IN ONE SPOT BUT HAD TO WALK UP AND DOWN THE AISLE OR SIT....DISGRACEFUL ATTITUDE BORDERING ON HARRASSMENT... WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!
Pros: The actual flight on Virgin Australia was great! The comfort level for economy was especially surprising and very nice.
Cons: The transfer in between flights was very hectic and they couldn't find my ticket on my Delta transfer. This happened because they e-mailed the week before trying to change my itinerary but then clearly didn't let Delta know so there was definitely confusion and I missed my original transfer. That aspect was frustrating, but the flight itself was LOVELY.
