Cons: "nothing I didn’t like!"

Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"

Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."

Cons: "Lack of food for dinner..they ran out."

Pros: "Pleasant, clean & comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."

Cons: "went i couldn't use my Qantas membership to access Melbourne lounge"

Pros: "Looking out the window."
Cons: "Flight changed from an A330 to a B737 perhaps as Resukt if the public holiday"

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: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"

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: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"

Cons: "Seats too closely squashed together Screen faulty towards end of flight Tried unsuccessfully to check in online - did not get an aisle seat which I specifically requested all along"

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 :)"

Cons: "Lack of ipads for inflight entertainment"

Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Cons: "The check in process for baggage at Sydney."

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: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"

Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"

Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Pros: "Always organised"

Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."

Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."

Cons: "The food was terrible. By the time the meal cart came to ou row, all the got meals was out and we have no choice and was served with the cold ham salad that looks like left overs, both my son and I lost our appetite looking at it. The crew didn't apologize and gave the impression that we either take it or too bad. Won't be recommending this airline."

Pros: "First time I flew Qantas and it was a flight from Melb- Dubai and then Dubai - London. I sat in row 62 and the food three times the food selection had run out the fruits and beef curry. I wasn't able to check in online which was quite annoying. The crew from Melb-Dubai were fantastic. So friendly and talkative and I think one was called Jordan."

Pros: "it was nice to get an early phone call about flight delay and given a food credit for the delay, pleasant check-in, smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "the poor boarding control and information. delayed boarding time and no-one from Qantas at gate until 45 minutes past the time scheduled on ticket and no communication of why nor when we would board. new passengers arriving were allowed to start getting in at gate before notifying us who had been waiting there to be told to get in or in what order. seat arm rest (between seat 58b and 58c) was wobbly. Entertainment movies need newer choices specially for people like me who can't sleep on long flights and have seen all this movies. where's the classical music?."

Pros: "I just enjoy Virgin as the crew are always nice"
Cons: "I find the seats a little uncomfortable. But it’s possible just me"

Pros: "Movies good Boarding and luggage retrieval good"
Cons: "Arrived an hour late Was another passengers fault tho but annoying"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and boarding was slow due to only using one aircraft door."

Cons: "great water service"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and responsive."
Cons: "1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time."

Pros: "Virgin lounge staff were super friendly and helpful - getting me on an earlier flight and giving me a spare seat next to me!"
Cons: "nothing negative to say"

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

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

Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "better movies"

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

Cons: "flight cancelled"

Cons: "Missed my flight due to lost luggage"

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

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: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "No entertainment if you didn’t have their app installed. Food was average. No room near our seats for our bags in the overhead bins because crew & other passengers further down the plane had already used them. Had to wait outside in the cold to board. One of my bags was broken on this leg! Tight seating! Not impressed."

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

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: "Easy checkin online. Easy bag drop at airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Snack enjoyable."
Cons: "Typical seating, far too cramped. Person beside me encroached on my personal space throughout the flight. Thank goodness it was only a 2hr flight between Melbourne & Brisbane."

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!"

Cons: "Going Melbourne delayed nearly 1.5hour Back home Brisbane another nearly 1.5hour and gate change a few times Very very bad experience"

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: "they eventually returned it"
Cons: "they lost my bag"

Cons: "they lost our bag on a direct flight, how can they do that? when we got there they only have an agent who told us to contact virgin airlines in melbourne!!!"

Pros: "Good Service"

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

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

Pros: "The flight was good, there was enough leg room."
Cons: "My husband and I are seniors, luckily we exercise daily, because we were told to take the stairs down to the airplane and had to walk to the plane in the rain and then walk up the stairs to the plane. When we boarded we actually should have gone through the plane as our seats were closer to the front. The stewardess should have used common sense and directed everyone through the plane, there was absolutely no reason to send people through the rain."

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."

Cons: "Flight cancelled, then booked by Virgin without consultation, onto a flight via Sydney that would take 6 1/2 hrs to get there, had to request another flight but still lost most of the day of my holiday, plus left with many phone calls re change of rental car, arrival , parking bookings, and no compensation and then stress when I got to the airport and was told that despite being "booked " on the much later flight, now I might not actually have a seat. I had to wait while attendant at counter tried to find seats and only watch as they were taken by someone else several times. So unnecessarily stressful and misleading. Lost my original seats, had to sit separate from my companion, and no real concern by Virgin about their impact on customers' plans. Last time I flew, the plane was cancelled, and we had to wait hours for another one in the terminal, so I missed the body corporate meeting that was the ONLY reason I was flying to Brisbane, paying for overnight accommodation and car rental and flight and I MISSED it. Huge cost for NOTHING, as despite driving straight to the meeting, it was just finishing. Whilst at the airport trying to fly home, I heard another Virgin flight cancelled , again due to "unscheduled maintenance". Seems that maintenance and mechanical problems are common and way more common than they should be. So that is a big worry!"

Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed without any explanation, and the staff member at the boarding desk was extremely rude when anyone dared approach her to ask what the hold-up was"

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight Inaccurate baggage carousel information Lack of communication from Virgin"

Cons: "my seat got changed"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Kids spilling drinks on me, no entertainment, no wifi"

Cons: "Plane interior was nauseatingly hot"

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: "entertainment is good"
Cons: "surely the food can be better than half a muesli bar"

Cons: "my flight got cancelled, and was not notified. got put on the next flight which was 6 hours later, So had to wait 6 hours to fly to melbourne."

Pros: "Virgin Australia is fine, it's eDreams travel agency who is shoddy"
Cons: "eDreams are incompetent and unethical. In my opinion they are scammers And operate an entrapment operation. Do not book through them and kayak should reconsider their association with third party booking group"

Pros: "Attentive crew"

Pros: "Friendly staff, ease of getting on and off the plane."
Cons: "Small nibbles...."

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: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment old, seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "everything was great, more movie options would be better"

Pros: "it is really fast to check in, but the seat is just in front of the toilet, the smells are disjusting."

Pros: "- 30kg checking bag. - service"
Cons: "complementary snack is not healthy at all."

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"

Pros: "The snack and OJ eere ok."
Cons: "Not picking my own seat, boarding from front AND rear is a nightmare, crew could care less! My seat was next to the bathroom (the front bathroom was unusable) so I had people hanging on my seat the entire flight...entertainment ap must be downloaded before flight! Not to mention we were an hour late due to weather even though every other flight was on time!"

Pros: "Both good"
Cons: "Entertainment"

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: "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!"

Cons: "Coffee free"

Pros: "I had 3 seats which was nice."
Cons: "I asked for a blanket - had to pay agreed lady never returned. Everything except the flight was an additional cost. The plane temp was set to freezing - very uncomfortable."

Pros: "The seating was comfortable"

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

Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Need free movies"

Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour then kept waiting another half hour on runway. Couldn't land straight away in Denpasar and had to circle for another 15mins"

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

Pros: "Nice seats."

Pros: "not many sitting accommadtion chairs were at gate 47 Melb Airport no reading papers were available"
Cons: "not many seats at gate 47"

Pros: "Boarded well, wasn’t overly populated"
Cons: "The staff were so rude and acted like they didn’t want to be there, acted like pouring you a glass of water was the biggest inconvenience in the world. Had to pay for inflight entertainment, no snacks or food whatsoever. But the attendants weren’t attentive or even in the slightest bit polite."

Pros: "We were surprised when we boarded the plane that we were flying with the new dremliner. The boarding was extremely efficient. They provided us with free movie too on board."

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: "Good movies.. they paid for my hotel and shuttle once flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hrs then it was cancelled due to pilot being sick. They never said on the flight how much the baggage fee would be which ended up being 150$.. which is unprecedented. Had to pay for food and drinks even after getting delayed and cancelled.. they should have been included"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Our complaint is the flight was over 5 hours long and you could not even get a complimentary glass of water, soda or juice. We found this to be a major out point with regards to service. The other issue was the no free TV. Lastly, I have never in all my flights had to pay such an outrageous fee to pre-check a suitcase. Thank you for listening."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything....no food, no entertainment"

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: "Nothing it was horrendous"
Cons: "My seat was broken with a big metal bar digging into my back all the flight and got given the thinnest blanket to try had and stop the problem total and utter was of time"

Cons: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."

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: "Friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Lateness of flight"

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: "Nil"
Cons: "Late leaving.late arriving.delays after landing"

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: "Staff very professional, food is decent"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."

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: "Very bad entertainment food not that good. Check in at Melbourne airport very mess"
Cons: "Everything. Food not good. Entertainment very bad check in at Melbourne airport very bad. The seat of the business class are not comfortable very small not worth the price we pay"

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 find the whole paying for all the extras a pain and probably won't do it again. Otherwise okay."

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: "On an international connection I had to collect my baggage, clear customs, and re-check for my onward trip."

Pros: "Kayak never told me that there is going to be check in bag fees. I was charged 160 dollars for 1 bag. Kayak should have informed me upfront. Thanks Sameer"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "9 hour flight with no meals or beverages or snacks of any kind. Had to pay for entertainment and Still had a service interruption for 30 mins. Power port did not work. Bumpy flight and seatbelt icon was never illuminated. Charged 160 per bag at the airport (unbelievable!). Filthy touch screen and food tray. Jet star claimed to 'help children with every flight' however the company donated nothing, they just went around to collect even more money from passengers. Worst flight ever. Will be calling customer service for a service recovery."
