Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "No plugs for laptops, 14 hour flight and no way to work is terrible, luggage took to long to come out and made it so I missed the connecting flight, have to stay at the airport for 5 extra hours - and terrible service with dealing with it and getting my family on the next flight -"

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 ."

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: "Arrived early, departure was on time"
Pros: "How fast the process of checking in Munich bags and getting to the plain on time"

Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."

Pros: "The service from the crew was great."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian, the Meals offered were really bad and i was disappointed that I wasn’t offered some of the more appealing vegetarian options that were available for the rest of the passengers"

Pros: "On-time, friendly crew, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food - please don't advertise that you will feed us when all the food is is a tiny packet of pretzels."
Pros: "Clean uniforms. Young staff."
Cons: "Price did not include luggage at all. Paid over $200 for luggage and no offer to assist disabled (I had open surgery two months prior). So told to check in all bags with their inflated prices."
Cons: "Staff attitude on board very poor Overall experience very mediocre Entertainment selection very Asian biased"
Pros: "On time (the only one of three Virgin flights within two days that was on time!)."
Cons: "The food was half a muesli bar!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "The bag drop queue was stationery as the belt was broken down. It was a very long wait for elderly people and meant we had no time for anything at the airport despite setting out far earlier than we needed to. Then when we reached Newcastle no bag arrived. It wa The worse part is trying to sort it out. Phone calls get lots of menus but no one to talk to"
Pros: "Things went smoothly and on time thanks"
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: "Plane was clean and the service crew was capable."
Cons: "Flight took off a half hour late and this 4 plus hour international flight from Australia to New Zealand had NOTHING TO EAT. This flight didn't offer a muffin or power bar only beverages. I have never been on a 4 hour flight where the passengers were not given some small complimentary snack. Shame on Virgin Australia."
Pros: "pleasant staff"
Cons: "business class seats ordinary and poor food choices"
Pros: "Crew blocked the seats in our row as we had a small child and they had the room... awesome!"
Pros: "Helpful checking in agent smoothed boarding."
Cons: "It was not clear at the time of booking that baggage was not included, causing delays and confusing at the airport."
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"

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!"
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."
Cons: "Extra luggage charges for a children's stroller."
Pros: "It is a short trip and it is easy to get on and off the flight without too much hassle. Except when it is raining as you have to walk from the terminal to the plane. No Food or Entertainment is provided as it is such a short flight"
Pros: "Service was great. Best food hubby and I ever had on a flight, international or domestic!"
Cons: "No issues!"
Cons: "tv entertainment,i wish i had realised that there was no TV for the children. ."
Pros: "Love the cheap fares and easy check in"
Cons: "So cramped! No leg room"
Pros: "Boarding and flight was ok for a budget airline"
Cons: "Flight attendant let a drunk male on the plane. Male was disruptive and rude in front of children. The flight attendant then tried to serve the male more alcohol on the flight. Not professional or safe behavior."
Cons: "Service was fast and efficient"
Pros: "Older plane with uncomfortable seat"
Cons: "The seat on the plane was old and uncomfortable"
Cons: "It was 1 hr delayed then when boarded there was some technical fault and we were left boarded with door open for about an hour. There was no offer of water or any drink. Seats I didn’t find comfortable. The cabin had significant rattle. Overall a very poor experience in today’s day and age."

Cons: "Another passenger was rude and disrespectful to personal space in my seating"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Great staff/crew"
Cons: "The flight left late. It just made it to landing in Sydney before an electrical storm shut down the airport. If the flight had left on Tim e it would have made it to Sydney before the shut down. We spent 3 hours in the plane on the Sydney tarmac."
Pros: "That l got sms messages regarding my flight details and where to collect my luggage!! Awesome"
Cons: "Got charged $120 at the gate as my bags were 7.5kg not 7kg. Blatant money grab."
Cons: "Lack of common sense by passengers with which door they should be using when boarding the flight. Crew may want to emphasis their directions more."

Cons: "Flight delayed getting away"
Pros: "It took off and landed"

Pros: "Newer plane, arrived on time."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!"
Pros: "What did I like... er..... I got home !"
Cons: "Where to begin: 1. The staff. the rudest flight crew i have ever come across in my professional career 2. The flight, well, as always, the flight was delayed for no reason, no explanations, no apologies, nothing 3. Comfort.... the Airbus A321 is a good airframe, other airlines engage seat manufactures with comfort in mind... nope.. not jetstar 4. Food. What food??? Was there any food?? nope.. there was a bag of nuts and some chips... 5. Entertainment. Well, I had fun listening to the cabin crew moan about passengers, so that was entertaining.. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time."
Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Extra fees were unexpected."
Cons: "How close the seats are."
Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."
Cons: "Don't fall for the scam where Kayak doesn't redirect you to the airline site, but rather has you book the flight within the Kayak site. They charge you a $10US surcharge on top of the flight cost. You can just as easily type in the airline site and book (for the same cost) without paying Kayak $10. It's not well disclosed and you can google all the complaints about Travelfuson (Kayak owner) online."

Pros: "Flight was smooth. No one bothered me while I was sleeping."

Cons: "Some of the cabin crew including the manager need to lighten up and smile occasionally"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Felt safe"
Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."
Cons: "Walk from gate 49 to closest exit doors 1.9km, no travellators. Are you kidding me? Never again."
Pros: "Have flown with jet star and I always have a great flight and I really enjoy how amazing the flight crew always are. Will continue to choose Jetstar for my domestic flights."
