Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."

Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."

Pros: "an amazing flying experience with pleasant crews who served their customers with hearts and their lovely smiles!"

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."

Pros: "Crew was good. Seats somehow seemed narrower than normal flights I have taken with Qantas. Sat in middle not even enough space to drink tea comfortably. Wouldn't want to be in that position for any longer flights."

Pros: "Wine and speed of service was excellent. Friendly and approachable crew."

Pros: "I liked that my baggage was returned to an address I gave the staff. However, my baggage was recovered and only delivered to me the Next evening at 6 p.m:(. It was most inconvenient as I had clothing For a graduation function I had to miss due to no baggage. :(:(:"
Cons: "I was most surprised to have NO baggage to arrive in Tokyo Especially as business class priority baggage.

Cons: "Quick service"

Pros: "Great service as always!"

Pros: "Warm service, provide healthy high fiber choice of food"
Cons: "I asked for some drink but it's not delivered until the crew started serving drinks to all passengers. I guess she forgot about my request. The aircraft is also a quite old one so entertainment facilities are not so updated."

Pros: "great flight and staff very nice and helpful. Arrived early even better"

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: "Good solid Qantas service, comfortable seating, flight on time and just a nice all round product."
Cons: "Aircraft swapped from a 332 to a 738. I'd specificity booked this flight to avoid the 738."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat material (leather) and cushion was comfortable."
Cons: "No leg room, my knees were pressed into the back of the seat in front, which became very painful. No wriggle room without disturbing person alongside. A ridiculous "snack". What happened to biscuits and cheese? Not trendy any longer i presume. Even Qantas serve that! No wine. Again, ridiculous. Condescending stewards, if that's what you are supposed to call them these "woke" days."

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: "Everything"

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

Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Never ever EVER book thru byo jet. Business breakfast was shocking obviously budget driven not presentation nor taste. Who declared that Arab cheese was consumable. Never book thru BYO jet"

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 a window seat with great views of the countryside- 2 hours seemed to pass quickly and the crew were good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "An hour only"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Cons: "Delayed departure."

Pros: "Very nice staff"

Pros: "Comfortable seat than other airlines. Good movies choices."
Cons: "Didn't have wifi"

Pros: "Great crew and good service."
Cons: "Two things - I dont like is the size of the seats. They are far too small. Most people are relatively big these days and when you sit next to a large person or between two large people the whole flight is so uncomfortable. The other thing is the air vents - no where near enough air coming through those - please fix :("

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Flight crew were great."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."

Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off. Was also told the flight was being held, then when I arrived at the desk was told my bags wouldn't make it on the plane."

Cons: "Flight was very bumpy, and the air inside the plane was stuffy. I felt nauseated all the way through from take off to landing"

Pros: "The new App for you mobile device is good. I enjoyed watching the movies to help pass the time."
Cons: "There is never enough room in the seats. I am not a big person, but when a big man is sitting in the seat next to me I do not have my own space."

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: "Boarded and departed on time. Good smooth flight."
Cons: "No window at seating. Disappointing for child traveller"

Pros: "Smooth flight, departed on time"

Cons: "No umbrellas offered on disembarkation in heavy rain"

Pros: "On time & comfortable, with reasonable food."
Cons: "Service from flight attendants wasn't as friendly as usual."

Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."

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: "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: "Free bag, easy going staff, very quick boarding, quite nice overall"
Cons: "Only the weather delay, but that cannot be helped."

Pros: ""

Cons: "The flight was cancelled the last minute and I called the carrier airlines and they say that nothing can be done and I asked to speak to someone from Kayak and I called a mobile number and had no answer , I will never book again"

Pros: "Everything was above expectation"

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."
