Pros: "I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too. The lamb curry is sublime. I would have it every day to be honest. I was also lucky that I had passengers who sat next to me, who were kind and lovely."
Cons: "Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious."

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "Crew were great!"

Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Better meal as the meat dish was a bit cold when it arrived."

Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"

Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

Pros: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."

Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."

Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."

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."

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: "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: "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: "Landing."
Cons: "Huge delays on check-in. System failures but also elderly people not knowing the check in process and causing further delays. People taking too much luggage inside the cabin. No food options for gluten free. No water served. Smooth flight though. Check-in staff at luggage short tempered."

Pros: "Amazing crew, food, and experience."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Crew were amazing, food was delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed with no explanation, we sat once boarded waiting to take off not knowing what the further delay was, ended up arriving and clearing customs an hour behind schedule. This is becoming more common with my flights with Virgin Australia."

Pros: "Loved the amount of leg room and food choices."
Cons: "Maybe more offers for drinks throughout the flight. Check in of the bags was automated in some areas but there didn’t appear to be sufficient staff to assist. That and as travellers we tend to move slower that a Virgin worker would so I couldn’t put all my bags on board. More assistance at checkin"

Pros: "The plane had few people so it was quiet."
Cons: "Meal was very average, captain speakers were very low and we couldn’t hear. The landing was rushed and rough even though it was good weather and plenty of space to slow down aircraft. No entertainment or offer to purchase/rent. The flight was delayed and we arrived one hour later."

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

Pros: "Plane was clean, crew were fantastic, food was acceptable"
Cons: "Seating doesnt allow a lot of leg room for taller people unless you want to pay more for Premium Economy, We travelled early December and the Entertainment still referred to the November listings"

Cons: "flight cancelled"

Pros: "The food was pretty damn good Staff were friendly"

Pros: "Little interruption from pilot"
Cons: "Simon and His team were wooden and lazy."

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were booked with a 45 min layover between flights, however they offboarded us and said that the minimum booking run is 1 hr required. Poor on Kayak end."

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."

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

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."

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!"

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Cons: "I didn't like seeing the build up of food and small rubbish in the seat tracks in front of me on both trips, there and back. It was revolting. Clearly the company vacuuming the carpet doesn't bother doing the job properly and doesn't take the time to look from the window seat position. Shocking indeed."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Speed of service and willingness to help"

Pros: "The flight was good. On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bag drop check in was terrible. So slow. Boarding wasn't efficient"

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: "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"

Cons: "Plane interior was nauseatingly hot"

Pros: "Very roomy and comfortable seats, which was important on a 15 hour flight! Great service, good food, endless supply of drinks ( water) . Bathrooms were kept clean and neat the entire flight. Great experience overall"

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

Pros: "Every employee I've met has made my trip seamless and delightful. Your employees are very professional. Wish you were in the US!!"

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: "Friendly service and they gave me an exit row seat!"

Pros: "Attentive crew"

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

Pros: "flight attendants have great attitude"
Cons: "1 hour delayed , not hot drinks nor entertainment"

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."

Cons: "The crew"

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

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

Cons: "Absolutely nothing - well done Jetstar"

Pros: "On check in we were offered the extra legroom right at the front, with just the two of us on the row!"

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

Cons: "If the boarding time had remained unchanged and there was more legroom"

Cons: "Flight from Napier to Auckland was delayed"

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!"

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."

Cons: "Over all it's ok good"

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: "Carryon luggage is restricted to 7 kg. Conflicts with worldcstandards and then they apply it to foreigners, but not to Kiwis! They would not let me take on my roller bag, but many locals got to! 9"
Cons: "See above"

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: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."
Cons: "It was a flight we've done heaps before. It would be nice to have all luggage actually transferred through from Napier to Manchester as it's an added challenge when also carting babies around."

Pros: "The ease of boarding"

Pros: "flight comfort was as expected"
Cons: "plane was over an hour late. a week before another Jetstar flight to Queenstown was 2 hours late. seems Jetstar is often late."

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: "The lady at the check-in counter was very helpful!"
Cons: "The seat were pretty uncomfortable for a almost 4 hour flight. It felt like we were squeezed into a tuna can. Also was surprised there was not a movie playing or wifi available to pass the time on a long flight."

Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"

Pros: "Head rests on bigger flight Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Having to pay 100 dollars to pay for baggage I didn't even know I had to pre buy. Just ridiculous! This is not common and should be able to be purchased when you check in like everywhere else. "Read the fine print" is not a right cause to screw people over. Having to pay to watch movies. Free section a complete joke!"

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

Cons: "I had to pay extra for my luggage, food, and alcohol."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and no delays. Didn't order any food and no entertainment on planes from Nelson to Auckland"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to come out. Likely due to Jetstar only having one carousel."

Cons: "Was so cold on the flight and couldn't sleep."

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

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

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

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: "We didn't crash and everything apart from the leg room being smaller was okay."
Cons: "They have taken two inches off the leg room. I know cause my legs now don't fit sitting straight."

Pros: "courtesy baggage for carry on"
Cons: "Late flight 1.5 hr delay....so missed business meeting...will not use again for business or time critical travel And seated next to a fat passenger who spilled into my seat...most uncomfortable flight leaning into aisle to get some space meant I was bumped by the crew. lame experience all round"

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

Cons: "The baggage prices is very expensive"

Pros: "Speed of flight time and being advised of our delay"
Cons: "Cramped boarding gate and slow boarding via Tarmac. Food and inflight drinks too expensive."

Pros: "flight smooth with bad weather, competent pilots"
Cons: "Bagage fee extortion, we were a family of four and had to pay $200 US dollars for 4 bags because it was not paid online. I wasn't sure what everyone was bringing yet when I booked tickets. the baggage agent told us it would have been less than ten dollars per bag if booked online. I can see doubling the price but not quadrupling... the luggage is still boarding the plane, whether you pay 10 or 50 dollars, it doesn't change anything other than they make more money off of the passengers."

Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"

Cons: "Legroom was really tight"

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

Cons: "Because we didn't guess how many bags we would have when we bought the tickets, or how heavy they would be, we had to pay an excess baggage fee of almost $500 for two bags (20 kg and 22 kg) at the airport. I can see getting a discount for paying for baggage fees ahead of time, but such a high "excess fee" when they are your first bags seem ridiculous. And being charged $4 for a bottle of water on a 9 hour flight?? I have never flown with an airline with such absurd fees and never will again."

Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."

Cons: "It was our first experience with a low-cost flight and we did not receive any information about the cost of the baggage when paid prior to the flight in the airport. It costed us more than the tickets!!!"

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"
