Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "Great flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "No dairy-free food, no option to request it on booking."

Cons: "Baggage restrictions"

Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Seat uncleaned. Last seat on plane separate from family with people constantly standing next to and bumping at toilets - little consideration fro Covid-19"

Pros: "Lovely cabin crew."
Cons: "So little leg room in economy! When the very large man in front of me put his seat back, It nearly hit me in the face!"

Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"

Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"

Pros: "Great flight, service, food and crew."

Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around."
Cons: "For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water."

Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."

Pros: "The movie selection was broad and current."
Cons: "There were plenty of movies to watch, but having more would be awesome!"

Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."

Cons: "I wasn’t given the seats I had chosen when purchasing the ($3,000) tickets. The seats in the “Dreamliner” were cramped and hard—uncomfortable."

Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"

Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "They provided much more than a seat. One of us was overcome with air sickness. The flight attendants provided all the help and comfort necessary to recover from sickness. They were indeed very helpful. We are very thankful and grateful for all the care they gave us during the flight."

Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."

Pros: "Seat was more comfortable than I had expected."

Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"

Pros: "A crew member saw that I was crying upon departure and left a stack of tissues in the seat next to me. Then the crew member checked on me later to make sure I was ok. It was very nice and touching."

Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The 3 Hour Delay in Sydney!!!"

Pros: "Service! Dinner was good, breakfast was a bit more hit and miss. Plane is quieter than most."
Cons: "Seats were like rocks. Business class, lay flat beds - even with the padded "sheet" they provide are abysmal. So much so that I cannot recommend the airline and will not fly them again."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."

Pros: "Good flight. Staff was excellent and attentive."

Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"

Pros: "Awesome service!"

Pros: "On time efficient service"

Pros: "Crew was reasonably friendly."
Cons: "Lack of space made it impossible to sleep. Aisle was dangerously dark. Would not surprise me if people experience falls. I know there is a trade off between sleep-friendly darkness and safety for those walking in the cabin. I think you err too much on the side of darkness"

Pros: "Our boarding & flight crew were excellent. They went above & beyond to help us through the delay that ocutred due to engine cover repairs."
Cons: "I was told LAX would have corrected flight/boarding info upon arrival. They did not. They made us wait & go through 2 lines that made us miss any connection home. The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."

Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"

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."

Pros: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."

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: "So easy to get from international to domestic. Which was such a releif when trying to get home to a family emergency"

Pros: "I have a nut allergy and there are no nut free meal options to select prior to my flight. Worse still the attendants didn't bother to check the meal ingredients, something that was offered to me by the budget airline Fly Dubai."

Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"

Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."

Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"

Pros: "Nice seats and television screens. Want service"
Cons: "Boarding with AA is always a fight with no order."

Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"
Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."

Cons: "1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes."

Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Pros: "It was on time"

Cons: "The Melbourne connecting plane left without waiting for the 90 people who got off the LA flight 2 minutes after the plane departed."

Pros: "At the check-in counter, Alieta was extremely helpful and went out of her way to assist me with a mistake on my travel visa. The flight attendant crew was superb, attentive, and friendly."

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: "Boarding and disembarking were very smooth, and our bags were ready for collection very quickly."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that Virgin doesn't include more food on their flights anymore, especially as this flight was over lunch time."

Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "Better food and choice of drinks"

Pros: "Food and crew!"
Cons: "The moment they gave out the ice cream it broke in half and began melting. Its hard to eat in the dark and turning on the light with a sleeping neighbor is no fun. Not the best choice to provide it as a popsicle... maybe a cup would be best."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Everything is good."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. The plane was nice and clean"
Cons: "Nothing. It was all good"

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "food choices in business class ordinary"

Pros: "My Mum has mild dementia and was going to Sydney from Maroochydore to visit family. From check in at MCY to arrival back at MCY the staff looked after her very well. She needed assistance boarding and disembarking and they were very helpful and courteous and that's why I choose Virgin over the other airline that flies the same route."

Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness of stewards, seats."

Pros: "Free drink and snack Courteous service Arrived on time Free registered luggage"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The orange juice. Good crew."
Cons: "Magazine pocket had rubbish in it. The oat slice is too sticky even though it has a great taste."

Pros: "Easy flight and transfer to domestic."

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: "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 :("

Pros: "Plane an easy boarding process. Attendant was very helpful when processing our baggage with an interrupting phone we jad to take."

Pros: "Short distance, so don't care"
Cons: "Little bit of delay"

Pros: "Nil complaints"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Literally had to cut in front of people exiting the landed flight in LA and run to the next flight, which was going from LA to Sydney. Same thing happened after landing in Sydney. Had to collect my bags, go through customs, recheck bags, take a shuttle to a domestic flight terminal, go through security, then I hear over the speaker it was the final boarding call for my flight, had to run again. I am a 56 y/o woman, was not fun. When I arrived in Cairns at about noon, I found that my bag missed the flight. I was told my bag would be delivered to my hotel in Palm Cove that evening, I received my bag the next morning. The flights into and out of LA were run by Delta, the flight from Sydney to Cairns was VIrgin Australia."

Pros: "Everything was a pleasure, the staff, the flight were all great,I will definately be recommending virgin to all my friends. Thanks for making the experience most enjoyable!!"

Pros: "Prompt take off after seeing the jetstar flights around us being delayed"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about 5*"

Pros: "The service of Kayak and Virgin was wonderful. The flight was comfortable and smooth. I usually hate flying but this flight I actually enjoyed in a way. The food was surprisingly good as well. Overall excellent - a tick in all the boxes!"

Pros: ""

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight cancelled and their rescheduling efforts were not any consolation."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled the last minute and I called the carrier airlines and they say that nothing can be done and I asked to speak to someone from Kayak and I called a mobile number and had no answer , I will never book again"

Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Appalling that in this day and age, Virgin does not cater for gluten intolerance. It's not hard to have meals without wheat, yet there's never a gluten free option even when there are non-Pasta based dishes such as curries and stir-fries. Gluten intolerance is so common these days so it's unbelievable that Virgin doesn't try to ensure at least one of the dishes doesn't have wheat/gluten. A 5 hour trip to/from Perth to Brisbane is a very long time to have no savoury meals. I never thought I'd say this, being a loyal Virgin flyer; Qantas is looking more appealing as they cater for GF meals Alim domestic flight and have started to improve their customer service."
