The crew went out of their way to help us board three sleeping children, and made what could have been a very stressful experience pretty much seamless. The seats even in economy were comfortable and not unreasonably small, and inflight entertainment is much appreciated and kept my kids happy. Both the flights there and back were the best I've had in a while, and genuinely made me consider no longer searching flights for price but based on airline.

It was no frills but there was plenty of overhead storage, video screens for each seat, and friendly flight attendants. I will fly with them again.

All good.

I tried to cancel this flight due to hurricane Irma. I live in Florida and was unable to make my trip to LA because of storm preparations. They refused to cancel flight because it was not to or from an affected area despite them knowing my address. The inflexibility to help people facing disaster is unscrupulous. I will never fly virgin American again.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
