Okay 4.3

Cons: 3.5 hr international flight with a small snack, but no meal. They even wanted to charge for OJ. I never flew a Virgin flight before, but had been under the impression they were a notch above the US airlines - that was not the case. Seat pitch was minimal. I'm only 5'8" & barely had enough space for my knees. I'm scheduled for a Virgin America flight from SFO-EWR. I sure hope that's better. A week ago I flew Air New Zealand with a 3 hr and 4 hr segments. We were fed full meals on both legs.

Excellent 8.3

Pros: I called several days in advance to request a gluten free meal, they said they processed the request, but there was not a gluten free meal for me on board. When the crew found out the problem they rummaged in the gallery and came up with a couple snack bars without gluten for me. They were awesome.

Cons: Requesting a special meal in the time frame required and then it not being on board was really heard with Celiac's.

Pros: I cannot say enough good things especially about the Air New Zealand staff on this flight, they were truly amazing, went above and beyond to help me and others. They were personable & caring! The seat was comfortable and the dinner was the best tasting airline food I have eaten in years. Happy!

Cons: I’m really not sure.

Excellent 8.5

Pros: The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay.

Cons: Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable.

Good 7.0

Pros: Crew were very helpful

Cons: First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good

Pros: The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats.

Cons: The TV screen interferes with the tray table and could knock off food from the table.

Pros: Comfotable flight, Good landing.

Cons: Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages.

Cons: It was 1 hr delayed then when boarded there was some technical fault and we were left boarded with door open for about an hour. There was no offer of water or any drink. Seats I didn’t find comfortable. The cabin had significant rattle. Overall a very poor experience in today’s day and age.

Pros: The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely.

Cons: I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats.

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.
