Cons: "Quick service"

Pros: "Great service as always!"

Pros: "Warm service, provide healthy high fiber choice of food"

Cons: "Can't believe they charged me $240 for an extra bag!!"

Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"

Pros: "Friendliness and punctuality"
Cons: "Not enough room. More head reclining"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "Movies good Boarding and luggage retrieval good"
Cons: "Arrived an hour late Was another passengers fault tho but annoying"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged"

Pros: "No problem apart from left a tad late"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "An attendant working in the check-in was very rude. I was unable to check in using the kiosk so I requested assistance from an attendant near the kiosks.The attendant refused to assist me and told me to wait until the other attendant was free. That attendant then helped the white man next to me."

Pros: "Comfy for a cheap flight."

Pros: "Virgin Australia crew members have been extremely courteous in my recent flights with them."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Better Movies"

Pros: "Took off a bit late but good communication around it. Comfortable easy and accommodating"

Pros: "Boarding the plane from both sides was efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment system inoperative"

Pros: "Check in was easy and I could not have asked for a better crew who were pleasant and helpful . Each and every flight in Australia on Virgin Australia has been made so easy for me with the help I have received from the crew with my husband who has mobility problems . seats very comfortable"
Cons: "There is no negative with this airline from ground crew to air flight attendants"

Cons: "If I could give zero stars or negative star rating , I would!!!! The scale should have a zero as this is the worst airline in the WORLD!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Had more then normal snacks."
Cons: "High numbered srat assignments board fron back of plane. This requires you to climb down & up stairs with carry-on bags. Would be good to mention when making reservation & seat assignments."

Cons: "There was an extremely long line at check-in with only a couple of Virgin Australia attendants working. Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."

Cons: "Boarding made half passengers drag their carryon luggage down stairs, then drag them up the plane. Not acceptable! Almost pulled my back out."

Pros: "Very helpful"
Cons: "Pleasant"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "All food had to be purchased and there was no wifi"

Pros: "Easy check-in, on-time arrival"
Cons: "The snacks are very boring."

Pros: "Glad I wasnt conecting internationally..Plane problems..Other airlines might have offerred some compensation for 2.5 hrs late.."
Cons: "Otherwise fine"

Pros: "Helpful train people arriving and leaving Brisbane airporr"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The new App for you mobile device is good. I enjoyed watching the movies to help pass the time."

Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."

Cons: "Wasn't happy that my suitcase was broken for such a short flight from Brisbane to Cairns"

Pros: "Great pilot in very bad weather"
Cons: "No umbrellas offered on disembarkation in heavy rain"

Pros: "All stages went well, which is just what we wanted after a very early start. We just wanted to get home with the minimum of fuss....and that's exactly what happened. Plenty of notice was given about the change of departure gate so that wasn't a problem. Friendly staff, nice snack and a good cup of coffee to keep us going."
Cons: "Just the seats. We flew Virgin both ways and overall had a great return trip. Thankyou"

Pros: "Nice that they had a tasty snack with a chocolate biscuit"
Cons: "Alcoholic beverages would be better if"

Pros: "Everything was a pleasure, the staff, the flight were all great,I will definately be recommending virgin to all my friends. Thanks for making the experience most enjoyable!!"

Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Appalling that in this day and age, Virgin does not cater for gluten intolerance. It's not hard to have meals without wheat, yet there's never a gluten free option even when there are non-Pasta based dishes such as curries and stir-fries. Gluten intolerance is so common these days so it's unbelievable that Virgin doesn't try to ensure at least one of the dishes doesn't have wheat/gluten. A 5 hour trip to/from Perth to Brisbane is a very long time to have no savoury meals. I never thought I'd say this, being a loyal Virgin flyer; Qantas is looking more appealing as they cater for GF meals Alim domestic flight and have started to improve their customer service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To start things off the women at the ticket counter to check us in was the rudest woman I have ever dealt with whilst traveling. I wish I had her name. It seemed as if she'd had something against us, this was in Brisbane by the way."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly. Mum needed wheelchair assistance and they made it easy for us."
Cons: "Only cow's milk was available for tea and coffee. No option for non-dairy. There were no snacks or sandwiches or hot food that did not contain animal products."

Pros: "Good points : Staff Aircraft Boarding Seating WiFi entertainment"
Cons: "Bad points: Meals/drinks (just ok....) Coffee :( (don't even think of it)"

Pros: "Being offered the emergency exit row as my partner is tall."
Cons: "Having to be at the gate 20 min earlier than usual to board a bus and be driven to the plane."

Pros: "Everything else was great with Virgin other than bus transfers to plane."
Cons: "Id prefer loading onto the plane directly at the gate, as with this flight today we had to be bussed from the gate to the plane which means loading onto the 20min earlier than usual for an already early flight."

Pros: "Staff were reasonable positive and trip was enjoyable."
Cons: "There was no on-board entertainment hence rated as POOR. Flight was delayed but that did not affect me - just arrived late."

Pros: "I love that economy has USB ports for every seat. Access to snacks and drink. Seat tilts back enough to get you by. Provided noise cancelling headphones is a major plus in my books. Extra room to spread out. I prefer Virgin planes over Qantas. Smooth easy take off and landing."
Cons: "The food was ordinary. Naturally I'm going to wish the seat went down further. The seat separators do not go up."

Pros: "VA has an it problem and allegedly they know it, but inability to check in was ameliorated by excellent counter service. Felt treated like a human being. The rating form is interesting. You can rate overall experience, boarding, crew, but how do you rate comfort ( their bed of nails is better than others) or food ( this is as good as Garudain the 1970's). Bottom line: Virgin cattle transport is better than competitors."

Cons: "No leg room."

Pros: "For that price it was a great flight"

Cons: "They wouldnt let me board because they said I was 5 min late, yet I was 30 min before the flight. The internal Brisbane airport shuttle had a problem. They should have let me board because this was the airport’s fault. They charged me 75 extra dollars too. Very lame"

Pros: "Adequate"
Cons: "In this day and age, i expect to have free entertainment even with a short hall"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "getting out on time, complimentary food."

Cons: "No complaints at all."

Cons: "Why are their flights always delayed?"

Pros: "Crew wasn’t that polite."
Cons: "Anything extra"

Cons: "Lack of common sense by passengers with which door they should be using when boarding the flight. Crew may want to emphasis their directions more."

Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."
Cons: "Don't know what hours they work, but the crew were clearly fatigued and couldn't be bothered. They were still polite but really just could not be a***d! Flight delayed by 20 mins and no explanation until airborne."

Pros: "The crew were great. Very clear on the p.a. System and good service."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and horribly cramped. No shaping to support your back and the tray table crushed my stomach and I am quite slim. Goodness knows how big people cope. We recently did a round The world trip with 11 flights and none were as bad as this."

Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."

Cons: "Rude service"

Pros: "Very smooth flight and the best landing ever! did not feel or know we had touched down."

Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you Australian airports and immigration is a pain, even for an Australian!"

Pros: "Good seat and small load so could move around"
Cons: "No entertainment and charges for everything."

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "I'm a thin man and am 5'9" (pretty average height) and I couldn't fit comfortably in my seat. The space between rows was so tight my knees were squished into the seat in front of me."

Cons: "This was the least legroom I've ever had in a plane. The seats were so close together that they hardly reclined at all. This was very disappointing since we were on a red-eye that left at midnight. Most uncomfortable I've ever been on a plane. I was also surprised to see trash in most of the seat pockets around where I was seated."

Pros: "Be careful. I booked a return flight from Narita. I was NOT prompted in any vidible way about luggage. As qantas FF and based upon ALL past experience i expected an allownace of 25 kgs to be included. I had NO luggage allwoance. I was charged apprx 400 AUD $ for a 22.8kg bag. I asked to redress thsi for the retrun trip and have since discovered that the details have NOT been updated despite paying! So now I need to call Jetstar and worknthrough the issue."
Cons: "I was not not noticeably propmoted about luggae allowances or onboard food ent and beverage costs which ultimately added 55% to the ticket cost, so a reasobale priced tocket ended up an expensive one."

Pros: "Nothing, because I didn't have had any food."
Cons: "Nothing, Because I didn't have had any food."

Cons: "Hardly any staff, we had to load & check in our own bags. The mechanical baggage belt was initially not working so the lines of people waiting grew. There was no-one to explain what we had to do so we only printed our boarding passes, and didnt realise we had to ALSO print baggage labels, so we consequently lost our place in the queue. NOT HAPPY!"

Pros: "Did not order any food, so there were no surprise charges."

Cons: "Beware, they charge $15 per kilogram for over weight luggage."

Pros: "Take off and landing was very smooth. Great staff"

Pros: "Onboard staff are friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Jetstar are unreliable, and do their best to extort more money from customers than the seemingly low initial price. Since they don't refund anything, if you need to make a change, they charge like wounded bulls and push you onto flights with inconvenient times and connections, then lie barefacedly, telling you the better flights are full."

Pros: "No hassles, great flight. No issues!!"

Pros: "I wish all airlines were as professional and prompt."

Cons: "Just stay away from this airline. One of the worst in the world. Don't care about their customers at all."

Pros: "Even when delayed, the outcome is still alright. I love it when the pilot informs the passengers of the delay. The crew were really nice and the pilot too."
Cons: "The staff in the check in counter could be a bit friendlier. The person seemed angry ,no smile at all."

Pros: "The plane was relatively new."
Cons: "Boarding was late. Food selection was poor Entertainment choices were slim And obviously charging for luggage and food sucks."

Cons: "Flights were delayed each direction."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "On time; baggage fees are by weight"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable; you pay extra for anything;"

Pros: "The prompt service and friendly staff"
Cons: "The flight delay which couldn't be helped"

Cons: "Was not on the flight because the international flight was canceled. Had to get a direct flight from Gold Coast to Japan."

Pros: "Amenity pack and entertainment were good. More movies to offer would have made the entertainment even better."
Cons: "We flew business class and it didn't feel too much like a business class experience. Welcome drinks were a nice touch but from there the service was not very attentive, we had to ask for empty glasses and plates to be cleared after they sat with us for over an hour. The meal was not great - pretty lack luster. No priority bag tags and our bags took over an hour to come out the other end."

Pros: "Crew really weighted in carry on luggages"
Cons: "They let me through although mine combined up to 8 Kg"

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "No vegan food option"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service is terrible, they constantly change the rules so its different every time. They don't serve beverages on domestic flights but they also don't let you bring your own. They charge per kilo for bags being overweight. They weigh your carry on plus your personal items which can only add up to 7 kg and will charge you if you are over even if by just 1kg. Do not ever fly with jetstar."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 35mins. Seats very crowded, we all had to get out of our seats to let the window passenger in and out. No screens on seat backs, lucky I had my iPad and could listen to podcasts in the 3+hr flight."

Pros: "Awesome lady at check in."
Cons: "Just disappointing to need to pay for a cup of coffee. This is just too cheap to feel good about."

Cons: "it delay too late at night. Others services were very good"

Pros: "The check-in woman was a gem! Due to Australia's strict carry-on policy - one item, period - I had to repack my luggage, which contained a fragie printer that had been in my carry-on when I could have it AND a computer bag. The Jet Star allowed two checked pieces, and the agent gave me all the time I needed to make the changes. She then marked the bag fragile, and sent me to the oversize/fragile bay with it. It arrived in PNG rattled, but working normally.The woman was a peach!"

Pros: "Quick travel."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and hot."

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Restricted carry on weight limit"

Pros: "simple - get from A to B straight"
Cons: "Not clean"

Pros: "Very friendly check in and welcoming staff"
Cons: "All food and drink had to be purchased"

Pros: "One of us was not feeling well and crew member noticed and provided help. They needed more staff at check in"
