Excellent 8.3

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.

Good 7.6

Pros: Overall this flight from Brisbane to LAX was fairly pleasant. Despite being reluctant to commit to any changes in the (uncomfortably cold) cabin temperature, one of the crew did respond to my inquiry by returning to say they had adjusted the temp upward to 24C, which in my mind earns them an A for Effort. What I had of the food was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. The touch screens seemed to work much more effectively than in the past, so those may have been upgraded. The crew I dealt with were generally very pleasant and responsive. The restrooms had sufficient toilet paper (never a guarantee), and as a stroke of luck, there was virtually no turbulence, that always makes things nicer.

Cons: I was right by the gate before the flight but never heard any announcement calling out rows, the economy passengers just started herding themselves (as always) and eventually got in line/on the plane in what seemed to be a haphazard fashion. Like so many times before, the air conditioning was set too cold (they said it was set to 22C as if this is normal - that might be an average setting of comfort for a grown male wearing a full suit and walking around in an office setting, but not for a plane half full of females who aren't able to move around and get their blood circulating). The music and movie selections seemed to have changed over the years. I have pleasant memories of Virgin Australia offering virtually anything your heart could desire at the touch of a button, but this time around I couldn't find any artists that I recognized let alone liked, and the movie selection seemed much thinner. Licensing issues perhaps? For me this was actually 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: 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.
