Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was super kind and friendly. Food and beverages were good as well."

Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."

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

Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."

Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."

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: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Crew were very accommodating to the needs to the passengers."

Cons: "As above"

Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."

Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."

Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"

Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Our boarding & flight crew were excellent. They went above & beyond to help us through the delay that ocutred due to engine cover repairs."
Cons: "I was told LAX would have corrected flight/boarding info upon arrival. They did not. They made us wait & go through 2 lines that made us miss any connection home. The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."

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: "Baggage allowance is good and cause of choice this airline but bad staff specially the check in"

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"

Pros: "The flight was 45 minutes because they put on the burner"
Cons: "The fact that 8.30 flight is delayed 2.5 hours and they had no other aircraft available to schedule ."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless, food was great, crew was o.k. and there was entertainment/access to movies."
Cons: "The chairs...they must do something about the cushions. Too thin for me especially on long 14/15 hour flight."

Pros: "Departed on time. Arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Leg room - very cramped"

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: "-Professional, clean. Staff seemed happy to be there. -Use of both front and rear boarding allows for faster departure."
Cons: "-Need clearer instructions or a crew member to direct passengers to front or back of plane. -In flight entertainment depends on predownload of an app."

Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As it is alliance with Singapore Airlines for international connecting but didn't felt any reasonable reason for not serving snacks."

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

Pros: "Rebooked on earlier flight and it was early!"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seat pitch was possibly the worst I have ever experienced. The plane was very old and totally cramped inside."

Cons: "Delayed departure."

Pros: "Check in was easy as they had plenty of representatives available. Short flight so did not experience food / entertainment, but everything was on time, crew was friendly, and they quickly had our bags out at the other end. We sat in the exit row so had plenty of legroom."

Pros: "service"

Pros: "Great customer service"

Cons: "Check in was horrible. Why have automated machines when they don't work and cause twice as much work for your employees. That was the only thing bad about me experience"

Pros: "Tried to make up for lunch with getting first choice for breakfast."
Cons: "I was in the last row of the plane and found myself treated like essentially second class citizens due to being in the back, as we did not get any selection for the first meal service, and there werent enough hot snacks ready when they got to us so they had to make new ones which took an extra ten minutes. (By the time the snack was served it was long after meal service too, so we were already quite hungry). It just made for an annoying experience feeling like because we were at the back, we had to just take what we were given. They could make more of an effort to make sure ALL passengers are treated well."

Pros: "Very nice staff"

Pros: "More leg room on this plane than any other economy plane I have been on"

Pros: "Lounge access as a gold member, good facilities, full service on the plane, helpful crew"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, there was only a small sandwich for dinner which was a bit disappointing"

Cons: "My flight was delayed and upon landing I was told by 2 virgin staff that I was booked on the 2:10pm flight to MIA. When checking in a Delta they advised I wasn't booked on the flight and that I had to head to the VA terminal to get my flight reissued. I walked 10 minutes with a lot of luggage to the VA terminal only to find it not staffed. I then had to walk back to the DL counter and due to the issues wasn't able to be put on a flight with a connection at 10:30pm."

Pros: "Counter staff at check-in was very helpful. Made sure our bags were clearly tagged for all legs of our flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"

Cons: "Didn't have wifi"

Pros: "- 30kg checking bag. - service"
Cons: "complementary snack is not healthy at all."

Cons: "30 mins on the phone to get a meal voucher that covered less than half the cost of the. Meal"

Cons: "I called Virgin a couple of weeks before the flight to confirm, but they could not find me on the passenger list. Told me to buy a new ticket. Then at the airport they miraculously found the original booking and WONT GIVE ME A REFUND!!!!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable short flight"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay and was told they had to wait for the paint to dry????"

Pros: "We sat on the plane for 2.5 hours before take off but it was not the fault of the airline. Extending a long flight is unpleasant. No additional water bottles available on the flight so you have to refill what're you have. Very little seating at the boarding gate so we stood in line for over an hour. The return flight was fine. Airline staff was great. Customer service is obviously important to them."
Cons: "I would have liked some sort of notification that we had to retain our water bottles if we wanted any water on the flight. Refills only. I'm inexperienced with international flight so it was new to me."

Pros: "Check in staff most helpful,traveling with oversize lougage,surf board and kites along with carry on.no fuss and searched seating so l had a spear seat on red trip home.thanks"

Pros: "Easy flight and transfer to domestic."

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: "It was an enjoyable flight and we were well looked after by the staff"

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

Pros: "The crew was awesome! It was our first time in Sydney and the crew went out of their way to make us a "to do" list of must sees!!"
Cons: "Nothing- everything was wonderful!"

Cons: "The flight was diverted (with no explanation or warning) which resulted in more than an hours delay!"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was put on another flight 1 hour 20min later, this meant having to rush. I bought the tickets based on time, and did not expect to have to run"

Pros: "It was a very bumpy flight due to the 100km/h+ wind in Melbourne that day. The landing was nice and easy in such bad weather. The cabin gave the pilots a round of applause."

Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "food quality has declined - clear cost saving tactic with the disposable packaging."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. The pilot was informative and landed well in windy conditions."
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat chaotic. Zones are ignored when boarding. The biscuit snack was so stake I could hardly bite the center of it. I almost broke a tooth."
