Onboard staff are friendly and efficient.

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.

This companies business model is high friction. I ended up with two tickets for my daughter on the same flights as one of their affiliates had problems with their website so it told me I wasn’t successful booking when i later found out the message was wrong. In the interim i booked the small flights on Tiger. I called both companies 4 times got the usual Asian call center responses and finally someone had the guts to tell me they would do nothing about it. Just insane and that’s what you will be if you ignore my advice. My daughter ended up with two flights she could never use and they would not do a single thing to help apart from go through their call center script to keep their jobs. You have been warned. Kayak should never refer people to gotogate.com. They offer similar customer service and would also do nothing.

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.

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

There is no negative with this airline from ground crew to air flight attendants

They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin.

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.

Everything went smoothly as on earlier experiences. Friendly and helpful staff at airport.

The departure gate was not displayed on the electronic board at the airport until an announcement that boarding was 'commencing' which caused some unnecessary anxiety.

Not much.

Boarding exceptionally slow due to intensive screening of each passengers hand luggage. Opportunististic for making an extra $36/bag if a gram over 7. Seat unable to recline. Literally not enough room for legs and needed to sit sideways and I’m not that tall!

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.
