Airline reviews

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"

Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"

Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."

Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"

Cons: "Great! On time"

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."

Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"

Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."

Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"

Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Cons: "Food was awful."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Overall feel of the flight. The focus in safety"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours. Limited selection of movied"

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "It got me home in one piece safe and sound, what more can you ask for."

Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"

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

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

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

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."

Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"

Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"

Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"

Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Pros: "The virgin lounge."
Cons: "Bit more variety."

Pros: "Great luggage allowance and best prices."
Cons: "Not Applicable"

Pros: "Quick and easy service. Very friendly and polite."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "flight cancelled"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Row 10 seats were extremely cramped. Seemed worse than usual. Was placed in middle seat and was unable to even read a magazine. Hostess saw how cramped I was and commented that I should purchase a x class fare, Perhaps virgin should ensure they supply adequate basic seating"

Pros: "Seats, entertainment, meals."
Cons: "Late out of the gate. Missed connecting flight."

Pros: "Taking my elderly mother up to the Gold Coast to visit my sister is always a challenge but thanks to the beautiful staff at Virgin it was made so easy. Just outstanding customer service. Thank you so much."

Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"

Cons: "My ticket was deemed void when I was checking in and I could not get on the flight. I will never book via kayak again."

Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."

Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."

Cons: "That the flight didn't wait 15 minutes for me to get on it."

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: "We arrived in Adelaide"
Cons: "Having to wait in a massive line for an hour to check in our bags after landing in Melbourne from a Virgin Australia international flight - there should be a special counter for guests who are transferring."

Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Pros: "Nice staff, entertainment system quite good , wide rage of films and music."
Cons: "Range of snacks and drinks served. Only water and juice covered in the air fare."

Pros: "Great service and staff."
Cons: "The non existent baggage drop at Tullamarine. The in flight snacks needs improving."

Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."

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."

Pros: "Sufficient."

Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by two hours, the earphone jack only worked through one side."

Cons: "I usually buy Eco X seats but this time forgot."

Pros: "Everything was great. On time and very nice service Thanks"

Pros: "attentive service and relatively comfortable, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Meal/snack/food was atrocious, was the most disappointing excuse of a snack. We had a choice of a few pieces of cut apple or an extremely thin sad looking granola bar. Expect airlines that offer “full service” to offer something better for the price, also the fact that no fixed TVs or iPads and you have to use your phone to watch movies, at least get a phone holder on the back of the seat."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Half hour delay"

Pros: "Very quick flight - after all the other hours spent in the air this was most welcome."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."

Pros: "A cold drink just when I needed it. Thank you"

Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."
Cons: "I don't understand why we had a 4hr 40 min flight plan which went way up the Australian coast instead of going in a direct line from Melbourne to Christchurch, when the ticket noted about a 3hr 40 min flight time. If you can enlighten me that would be appreciated."

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

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "legroom too small and food was minor snack."

Pros: "Good cup of tea. Good crew."
Cons: "the double biscuit is difficult to eat because it is too thick. It is quite tasty. However something savoury would be better e.g. cheese and jatz."

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Economy X is fantastic, and really enjoy the boarding experience and the crew. left on time and arrived early. Excellent trip in that regard."
Cons: "Almost every time I travel on virgin, which is a lot. They serve a minim muesli bar. Come on Virgin what about changing that a bit. Qantas offer some really good options for not much more of a ticket price. This part of the Virgin Experience needs to change."

Cons: "Delayed."

Cons: "my seat got changed"

Pros: "All went well, smooth flight, more or less on time"
Cons: "Over priced food, in- flight entertainment, through an app had a poor selection of programs - seats feel more cramped than other airlines- lucky it was only a 1 hr flight..."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Breakfast was a muesli bar but only half the size. Over all it felt like a budget airline. i will not spend extra money to fly Virgin Airlines again."

Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Virgin is always well organised and the flights kept to time. The staff were very helpful and I had a comfortable trip"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Luggage of 23kg per piece and not able to share across allocated family total"

Pros: "Like the corporate image & modern design of different facilities etc. The check-in was nice & smooth."
Cons: "No greeting or smile from crew staff (I think it's important as it shows welcoming)."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Had to pay extra $70 because I couldnt take some spare parts as cabin luggage which should have been accepted."

Pros: "Flight crew were lovely."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."

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"

Pros: "Agent service"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "I paid $65 for a seat with extra legroom, 13F, but at the airport found that I had been moved to 8A. Couldn't get my seat back, so spent 25 minutes on the phone to Virgin Australia today getting a refund."

Pros: "Reached Sydney, eventually"
Cons: "Hour late. Crowded plane, cramped. No service. Poor communication about delays."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."

Pros: "Efficiency at the check-in and the excellent service by the crew on board."

Pros: "Food & service fine- no complaints"
Cons: "Perhaps food could be better"

Cons: "Absolutely nothing - well done Jetstar"

Pros: "It was a full flight and all went smoothly"
Cons: "It could have been on time bu these things happen"

Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"

Cons: "There're unoccupied rows, but still pack passenger together instead of offering the empty seats to couples."

Cons: "Tray table came down almost into my stomach .... why can’t you push them back towards the rear of the seat ???"

Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"

Cons: "Slugged $60 for having one kg extra than on the flight down. Rep Australia in senior golf event ..given a wine box this was weighed too. What a rip off!"

Pros: "The seating was comfortable"

Pros: "yes it was"
Cons: "Music!!"

Pros: "I got home. Eventually."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2hrs with no real explanation"

Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Jetstar terminal has a lack of seating"

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"

Pros: "great flight - fast and easy."
Cons: "it's jetstar so seats aren't the most comfy, but for a few hours, it's just fine."

Cons: "Delayed as usual - luggage check again"

Cons: "Well I thought I was never going to see my family again as there was so much turbulence. At one time I thought the plane was going to tip over. I’m a regular traveler and have traveled the world but never encountered anything like this before. The weather seemed fine . There was no rain or thunder. So what could have caused so much turbulence?"

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"

Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"

Pros: "Perfect landing!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time - early even"
Cons: "Seats are just too cramped Timing is woeful. 2:30am flight to arrive at 6:30am is awful!"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The landing was super rocky"

Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"
Cons: "A metal bar was poking into my back from the seat (17D) - as if the padding had worn away and the seat frame exposed. Tray table had not been cleaned and was covered in crumbs"

Pros: "There is nothing to like about the trip - glad I made it."
Cons: "Baggage handling, treatment and flight crew should all be avoided"

Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"

Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"

Pros: "The cabin staff were friendly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to excess baggage weight in hull. The baggage had to be unloaded and then reloaded again, while we sat on the tarmac for an hour."

Cons: "Since more chairs have been added there is no leg room! My husband had difficulty getting in and out. We will not be flying jet star for longer flights"

Pros: "All"

Cons: "Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers."

Pros: "Customer service was great.Flight was on time and the weather was good for a day and a half"
Cons: "I did not like it when i got to the airport up there at 7:15 pm and when my Brand new suitcase came around on the carousel it had 2 smashed handles on it.I Reported it straight away to the people in departures.The young guy their gave me a number to ring, which i will be doing tomorrow"

Pros: "Hot chocolate was good, and toasty was large. Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner"

Pros: "Very little. The seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING, including entertainment. You may think you have found a great deal, but look at the extras before you purchase. This is the mistake I made. I didn't have a meal because their website was not working for me to pre-order. When I mentioned this to them through chat, they said they have food available for purchase in flight. When I was ready to purchase (the second time they were walking the isles) they said they have no food left and offered me cheese and crackers, to which they then asked me to pay for! So on our 11 hour flight we had 4 crackers and some cheese. Before boarding the plane we were told we were only allowed 1 carry-on and 1 personal item. We left some luggage behind thinking we would not be allowed to take it on our flight. Upon boarding, we saw that the row behind us had large amounts of carry-on forcing our entire row to stow out luggage 4 rows away. I'll never be flying with jet star again."

Pros: "Safe."
Cons: "Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead."

Pros: "They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before."
Cons: "No further updates when revised departure time had past and we were still waiting in line. Delay avoidable and not acceptable for first flight of the morning"

Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."

Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lack of legroom."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"

Cons: "They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Shame the staff were not more friendly, I took my rubbish to find a bin and the flight attendant expressed her annoyance and me. Asking her where I can put it. They don't smile and when you asked a question they treated me like I was a nuisance"

Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"

Pros: "Efficient on time departure and arrival. Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Credit card only for purchases without advance notice is a bit ordinary"

Pros: "It was a good flight, good pilot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed It is a 7+ hour flight I think you could offer some snacks and coffee or tea for free At least one good movie for free Every airline I've chosen to fly with does it but Jetstar It was quite disappointing"

Pros: "Service is very good"
Cons: "Food is inadequate for vegetarians and vegans. It is not too difficult to adjust the menus to include more interesting food variations. Virgin, Tiger domestically make a bigger effort. Jetstar cheeses have animal rennet - not necessary in this day and age. Toastie could be cheese and tomato, not only with bacon.. I complained to Jetstar head office, and the response was inadequate. Proof is if they make an effort and change. If another airlines is similar price with better food, I would automatically go with the other carrier. It's all part of hospitality. Jetstar are stubborn. Irrespective of being a low cost airlines - no excuse."

Pros: "Due to storms a 1 1/2 hour delay which is understandable until I found a friend on Qantas left on time. Delay on all Jetstar to Sydney and that afternoon but unaccountably Qantas mostly in time."

Pros: "The smooth takeoff and landing, the staff cortesies"
Cons: "The 5min wait but perfect otherwise"

Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
