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.

Pros: Onboard staff are friendly and efficient.

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.

Good 6.3

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: We flew Virgin Airlines from Perth to Brisbane and we were not charges extra for my son's surfboard because his total luggage was with in the 20kg. When we flew to Cairns from Brisbane they made us pay $70 for the surfboard and they would not listen to reason. Based on your inconsistencies in your rules, we will not fly Virgin airlines ever again even if it is the cheapest option (which it isnt). Alexandra Mills

Excellent 8.0

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Flight time rescheduled meaning we had very little time for connecting flight. Then they checked our luggage in (weighed 8.5kg and only 7 allowed (charged $108). The booking in of the bags meant one of our party missed connecting flight. She arrived at gate while plane was still there and Capt said he would wait but ground staff over-ruled decision. Not happy.

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.
