Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."
Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"

Pros: "Professional and friendly staff amazing cabin crew and pilots"
Cons: "The inflight wifi was not working the snack was only a biscuit"

Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"
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: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."

Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."

Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "Thanks Qantas staff members. You all rock! I was seated next to a sick passager and I spoke to crew members from LA to Sydney.

Great experience with staff in domestic flights too!!. Flight from Gold Coast to Sydney was excellent. Great service, indeed !!!"
Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."
Pros: "Awesome service!"
Pros: "On time efficient service"
Pros: "We were late arriving due to roadworks at the entrance to the airport leading us miles out of our way due to poor signage Baggage had closed and the Qantas staff were excellent in ensuring that we caught the flight .Well done !"

Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."

Pros: "comfortable seats. Okay food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Flights were almost all delayed. Was told I didnt have to pick up luggage during connecting flight, but did have to."

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: "Safe trip"
Cons: "Better food and choice of drinks"
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches after only servicing 1/4 of the plane, and they are the only substantial pieces of food to buy for dinner! I was starving."
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 ."

Cons: "Planes are old"
Cons: "vegetarian meal was a small side salad and soggy. this over lunchtime so was a disgrace for business class"
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: "Free wifi is amazing! This is something all airlines need to take more attention of!! Some airlines have ridiculous charges for wifi."
Cons: "Annoying that they didn’t board via the front and rear exit, but this was probably because it was raining. Half the plane boarded via the “priority pass” would be kinda disappointed if I had a high status only to board with half the plane."
Pros: "How fast the process of checking in Munich bags and getting to the plain on time"
Cons: "Small seats"
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: "Good movies. Food was good. Flight was good."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
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: "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."
Pros: "arriving in Brisbane!"
Cons: "Delay as for some reason it appeared there was no knowledge of length of Dunedin runway. Plane old, not very clean. No entertainment and no food. Did not book a meal but felt that due to 3 hour delay there could have been a slice of bread, a bun, or something, on offer."
Pros: "Virgin are usually one of the most competitive, efficient and pleasant airlines to fly."
Cons: "Plane delayed for over an hour with minimal updates. We finally boarded when we ought to have been arriving. A regular ipdate would have helped managed things at the other end better."
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: "The crew made it worth while. Great hospitality"
Cons: "The seats all around could have been more comfortable"
Pros: "Rebooked on earlier flight and it was early!"

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: "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."
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 :("
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"
Cons: "Flight to go on time"
Pros: "The flight was during very bad weather and the pilots did a great job of keeping us informed and feeling safe."
Cons: "Due to the weather snacks were handed out but no water. Water used to be provided in single serves. As it is now poured into cups it was not provided on the flight. This seems like cost saving that is unacceptable to customers paying the same price with no access to a drink on the flight."
Pros: "The service was good even for such a short flight (20 mins)"
Cons: "Was an old aircraft so the interior could do with updating"
Pros: "The sense of really flying!"
Cons: "Some of the turbulence."
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. Great landing!"
Cons: "Leg room a little tight."
Pros: "25 minute flight, no need for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Could use some more leg room."
Cons: "Limited baggage allowance , check in clerk over officious and totally unhelpful. "Safety" factor re weight used interminably, why not upgrade fleet if safety is so important ? Asked how I was to get luggage not on flight , told " not my problem , read fine print ""
Cons: "Rang 6 hours in advance to say miss a fight from Brisbane to Adelaide due to flooding in mount isa bus delayed for 3 hours and was only let know 20 minutes after bus was suppose to leave charleville . Would have been nice to get a credit."
Pros: "Beautiful polite and professional ladies air hostesses"
