Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled and we were not notified by justfly. Just fly also accepted the flights on our behalf so it mean we couldn't chose the new flights"

Cons: "No screaming children"
Pros: "timely and comfortable"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "Everything went well. boarding and check in."
Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."

Pros: "The efficiency of the process from boarding to disembarkation."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, however I understand this happens in aviation."
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: "Crew were very attentive and polite. Better than Singapore or Air NZ."
Cons: "Self check in was chaos. Labeling suitcases was difficult to do yourself and many needed help. If you didn't follow instructions to the letter the auto reader didn't work. Many were very frustrated including Virgin staff who were clearly run off their feet trying to cope. Scrap the system ."

Pros: "I like Virgin Australia -- luggage allowances are generous and it's nice to have a snack."
Cons: "Flight was late, snack was not nearly as nice as on my previous trip (little crunchy snacks instead of cheese & crackers), they didn't want to serve hot drinks but offered no caffeinated substitute (in my opinion, if they are going to halt hot beverage service due to turbulence, they should offer free soft drinks instead, or at least free beer & wine since that would have been offered anyway if the flight had been on NSW time). Nothing major, just not as great as my previous experience with this airline."
Pros: "Director flight at a good time"
Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."
Pros: "Service and crew is very great Comfortable"
Pros: "How fast the process of checking in Munich bags and getting to the plain on time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Virgin Australia from LAX to Sydney return. I LOVE this airline. The staff at every point are friendly, responsive, professional and helpful. I loved the service on board. Nothing seems to be too difficult (this was refreshing as I have flown on many flights throughout Asia and America where the service ethic was not strong. Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service."
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: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."
Pros: "People were nice, and hoarding and disembarking was efficient."
Cons: "My bag got lost, and they didn't deliver it until very late. Also, the taxi driver somehow had the wrong address, so I had to give the correct one to him over the phone after he called me, confused about where he was."
Pros: "I didn’t die"
Cons: "Where’s the coffee? What about a proper snack? Why are the stewardesses so grumpy?"
Pros: "Food, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat was terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "staff were wonderful!"
Cons: "not enough vegetarian meals brought on board for everyone in business class who wants one.... disgraceful for what it costs"
Pros: "Great service and a free hot meal! Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Staff attitude on board very poor Overall experience very mediocre Entertainment selection very Asian biased"
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "Complimentary snack and drink."
Cons: "I was offered a seat near an exit door on the proviso I would help people in an emergency. I assumed this was because I am about 2 metres tall with my shoes on i.e. bit hard not to notice when I am at the counter. I actually got given a seat in Row 25 on an Airbus 321, which is the row in front of the spacious row 26, and row 25 has less kneeroom than the ordinary rows. Uncomfortable trip"
Pros: "pleasant staff"
Cons: "business class seats ordinary and poor food choices"
Pros: "Rebooked on earlier flight and it was early!"
Pros: "Legroom and seats"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The falafel wrap (lightly curry) was delicious"
Cons: "We reserved seats together and there were changed without reason"
Pros: "The entire service is great I'd be happy to pay more for a flight with virgin then any other airline"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "flight was delayed."
Cons: "Checking in staff insisted that I check my 2nd bag even though it is within the carry-on bag limits."
Pros: "Virgin are consistent"
Pros: "Virgin does a great job for a great price. Having Resided in the USA for 12 years I've flow many times across the pacific on each of the airlines and I can confidently says they are lightyears better than any of the American Airlines. On my return trip from Sydney I had hit some extraordinary traffic and it took 2hrs to get to the airport in what is usually a 40min drive. This resulted in me arriving less than 1hour from the flights departure time, the checkin staff did what they could to keep me on the flight as planned. Staff in all areas were great, it always a fresh breath of air when I board a virgin Australia flight, so different than traveling in the US of A...."
Cons: "The Food on Virgin Australia is ok. From the United States to Sydney it was average, on the return leg the quality was much better. They served 2 meals and a mid-flight snack. Their snacks and water station Mid plane is a very welcome touch on the long haul flights. Perhaps one more pass with the full drinks cart will help them join the heavyweights at Qantas."
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies, nibbles and snacks suitable."
Cons: "The seat was a little uncomfortable on that plane. Not sure why."
Pros: "From booking to checking in to flights - all worked seamlessly - I would recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "When boarding the plane I enquired about headphones. The flight attendant told me they don't usually give out headphones on my particular flight, however 15 minutes into the flight she walked past and had a pair for me to use. I was really impressed by the level of service and the fact she remembered where I was sitting. Great customer experience!"
Cons: "Received a chewy muesli bar Aussie bikkies wd have been much nicer Thank you"
Pros: "The flights left on time"
Cons: "We will pay extra to fly on an airline with better customer service and assistance for check in, in future. We had a pusher and two little kids plus a baby so having to self check in from the Gold Coast was a nightmare. We only flew virgin to get a direct flight but will change our holiday destination to fly Qantas in future"
Pros: "Cheap - perhaps too cheap."
Cons: "The fact that the food doled out was so small as to be insulting (a hummus pita bread that was in a plastic container actually small enough to fit in your hand); coupled with the fact that to eat actual food or have a drink one had to pay additional. No headphones; poor entertainment choices."
Cons: "Despite being offered for sale an hour prior to departure, the ticket didn't issue before flight closing. Missed the flight and had to spend time getting a refund from the issuing company instead of spending the time working out how to get home!"
Cons: "Extra luggage charges for a children's stroller."
Pros: "Easy flight and transfer to domestic."
