Pros: "Premium Economy was a good upgrade for me, it really helped on my way to my destination so I could sleep on the flight and then start my day when we landed. The Movie & Menu selection was enjoyable. This was a good flight with an attentive and courteous crew!"
Cons: "Overall, the cabin could use some updates. Seats feel's very 1980's. The older LCD screens generate a lot of heat and wash out the picture a bit, there are better LED/OLED options for airlines on the market."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "Dinner on a 1 hr flight! Unheard of in US in coach."
Cons: "Small seats (but same as our 13hr United flight from SYdney to Sam Francisco). Tolerable on 1hr flight."
Cons: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways! I tried to change my dates after I bought it and dealing with Flight network -where i bought it from - was a nightmare!! I wouldnt recomment this at all."
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and refused to give me another bottle of water although this was a 15 hr flight. She should really retire. The flight was delayed, which extended the whole trip by several hours. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "The menu offered a pre dinner drink however this was never offered. Touch pad screen did not function very well."
Pros: "The ES on my failed three hrs into a 13 hr flight. No music no movies just a black screen. Staff unable to help. The cold salad option included raw potatoes, inedible raw broccoli stocks & green beans. Tough grisly ham bits. More like rubbish bin material than food."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no ES, poor quality food options"
Cons: "The airline used a codeshare that did not seem to signify anything. They would not provide me with any help when it became clear I would miss my connection. Furthermore, I purchased an extra legroom seat and was charged for it twice. Avoid if at all possible"
Pros: "Left on time. Clean plane."
Cons: "I don't like the music that plays before leaving. I would rather silence than music which doesn't suit everyone's taste. I find it irritating."
Pros: "Included check-in baggage"

Cons: "If Virgin advertise that food is included, please make it real food and not just a tiny packet of nibblies."
Cons: "Flight delayed initially because of a cracked window, was an hour late before it was communicated. Then on a new aircraft, forced to return to the gate when cabin crew identified a vacuum cleaner part as a suspicious item. All told 2hrs 15 mins late."
Pros: "Good flight, punctual, comfortable."
Cons: "Even though I supplied my frequent flyer number when booking, it was not linked to my booking. That means a whole lot of time chasing up getting my flight added to my frequent flyer account. The Virgin website is at times frustrating and non-functional especially in regards to the link between it and the Velocity frequent flyer programme."
Pros: "Another delay by 1 hour"
Cons: "I should only book qantas .... virgin are never in time."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Trip was pretty standard."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, as soon as we landed in Melbourne, the plane had to shut down on the tarmac which then meant I missed my connecting flight and had to wait in the airport for 6 hours until the next flight. All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"
Pros: "Left a few minutes late but arrived early, so all good. Comfortable, flight, friendly crew. Well done."
Pros: "Good flight, punctual, on time."
Cons: "Food a tiny chocalate bar. If VA advertises that it serves food on domestic flights, it should be proper food!"

Cons: "Entertainment choices limited"
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Minimal amenities"
Pros: "Staff where great, plane was clean, and we left on time"

Pros: "The crew service was amazing. The flight attendant went the extra mile and actually put another blanket on me as I slept, which was a comforting extra touch. This was in Business Class."
Cons: "For a night flight of 4 hours duration, the business class meal service should be express, to maximize opportunity to sleep."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Staff need training in using the sound system, speaking slowly and clearly."
Pros: "Because the flight was short, we had no entertainment options offered. I think I’d like flying more if movies were show, even if the whole airplane shows one movie like they used to do. Otherwise, it was a normal flight...nothing memorable. Though, my fiancé did love the granola bars and raves about them after the flight. I didn’t eat mine so I gave mine to him."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "Quick boarding efficient on time smooth 'sailing'. No luggage so I was on the bus 5 minutes after the flight landed"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable the pads around the neck push my head forward. Would be great to have better support for the back making the seat shaper like an L. Tall person problem."

Pros: "staff were wonderful"
Cons: "Very difficult boarding for my mother with stairs& steps Also no tine whatsoever to drink tea and nutty thing too hard to attempt to rat"
Cons: "Refer to heading Virgin I think you are taking cheap too far"
Pros: "Everything went well. I came through security right to the gate, onto the plane and into the air. Great flight, timing, they were spot on that day."
Pros: "Flight from Sydney to LA was fine, no issues. Issue on connection from LAX to JFK."
Cons: "We were delayed getting out of Sydney so late getting to LAX. Ran to get through customs, then airline rep said we might not make flight connection but to run...so we ran through two terminals, dropped baggage, ran through security to our gate...made it while flight still open...but...gate agent said Virgin had re-booked us already on flight 5 hours later and we no longer had seats on that flight. So two very serious questions that I have not yet gotten a satisfactory answer... 1) why were they allowed to re-book me without my consent? Every other situation, including changes to this itinerary in the past, I was told no changes could be made without my approval? 2) if they had already give away our confirmed seats, why in heavens did they tell us to run? At the airport I got a variety of answers that seemed to be pointing fingers since Sydney flight was Virgin Australia and LAX was Delta....despite codeshare seems these two companies do not work so seamlesslessly and one has no real idea what the other is doing....to the travelers detriment."
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment old, seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "it is really fast to check in, but the seat is just in front of the toilet, the smells are disjusting."
Pros: "Everything was carried out efficiently with a smile."
Cons: "Our 2 previous flights were carried out by New Zealand Airlines, even though we booked Virgin Australua. They have no service at all. They do not understand what it means. Especially from Christchurch to Melbourne with chief stewardess Catherine. She was rude and arrogant. The Staff did nothing for the travelers. They laughed loudly in their cabin and disturbed."
Pros: "Like the corporate image & modern design of different facilities etc. The check-in was nice & smooth."
Cons: "No greeting or smile from crew staff (I think it's important as it shows welcoming)."
Pros: "Movies were good but the entertainment system wasnot easy to use."
Cons: "Food was rather ordinary."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Would have liked a little more to eat, especially with the early rise to get to the airport in time. Qantas serves breakfast."
Pros: "Usually i fly Qantas... however since this trip ihave been very impressed with Virgin's services. In particular - quick & streamlined boarding, very comfortable and new seating, complementary snacks & drinks (with gluten free snacks!), and friendly professional staff :)"
Cons: "Difficulty hearing the pilot over the speaker system during the flight"
