Pros: The overall service and polite crew and ticketing staff. They couldn't be more helpful. I've crossed the Pacific several times and Virgin get my vote.

Cons: The distance to the aircraft after going through boarding! In Melbourne several people just stopped and sat down on the floor to rest as it was a long, long walk to the actual aircraft. Construction being the cause so probably out of Virgins control.

Pros: The boarding process, on board entertainment, and the flight condition were good.

Cons: I ordered Muslim meal for myself and Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter. While going to Australia they provided Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter and said they forgot to get the Muslim meal. The air hostess said she will look into this so that it would not repeat. During my return from Australia they did not provide Asian vegetarian for my daughter and no Muslim meal for me. And the air host said they would look into this and see that it does not happen during my return. I said this is the return trip. They provided some vegetarian food that not good. And during the return there was no vegetarian choices for the breakfast. The air host didn't even bother to ask my daughter about the food. Very sad.

Good 6.0

Pros: I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken.

Cons: See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress.

Good 7.3

Pros: The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good.

Cons: Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best.

Pros: Business class from Bangkok to San Francisco was good overall, especially for $1400 one way. Food was not very good for business class, was more in line with JAL, EVA, Korean or ANA econo class but again, for the price, no complaints. Great friendly service, quick boarding. Priority Pass didn't have a lounge in Manila but thankfully, Philippines Air had their own lounge with great food and drinks for 1st Class and Business class ticket holders. Plane from Manila to SFO was older, screen way too far away, not even reachable without getting out of the seat. Business class seats don't quite lay flat but no complaints for the price. Would fly with them again!

Good 7.0

Pros: Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances.

Cons: Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking).

Pros: The food on the way to China and on the way home was horrible. They stopped serving cup noodles too. Only sandwiches when I asked for other option when the main course weren’t good.

Cons: I didn’t like the food choice at all. The fish didn’t taste good. Chicken with pasta tasted cheap and the beef with potatoes were spicy. Should have make the spicy sauce on the side in case for people who can’t eat spicy food. They used to serve 3 meals now cut down to 2 meals... maybe it’s time to reconsider another airline.

Pros: The Chinese people were wonderful! But I was required to pass thru security checks 3 times arriving. 3 times transiting and 3 times leaving. At customs, transit and departure. No common sense to their process only"letter of the law". For example I was taking beef jerky to my friends in Thailand but the Chinese security has a meat sniffing dog and they confiscated it as well as the girl in front of me More than $100 worth of jerky. They should have given it back at departure gate. I had to buy more in their duty free shop. Also they cancelled my flight without advising me but did get me on Thai airways later that day. Too much hassle to Transit China

Pros: My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee.

Cons: The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers.

Pros: Didn't have to pay for in-flight entertainment. Plane boarding and exiting was smooth. No delays. Plenty of overhead baggage space.

MEL
LAX
OK 5.6

Pros: The cabin crew were very kind and helpful, always smiling and happy to be of service.

Cons: It wasn't Air New Zealand, but operated by United Airlines. The plane was uncomfortable, and the entertainment system seemed clunky, unintuitive and outdated. The selection of entertainment, poor in quality, I thought. There were lost of things to watch, but a lot of it was of poor quality. The food was acceptable, but again, it felt like it was done on-the-cheap, and I was eating airline food a la 20 years ago.

Pros: The aircraft was spacious and well appointed. The crew MEL to LAX were very friendly and offered food and beverages at regular intervals, and walked the aisles regularly in case the passengers needed anything...

Pros: Great food and pleasant staff. We were delayed on leaving but they made up the time in the air. I was pleasantly surprised after flying budget airlines for so long.

LAX
Excellent 10.0

Pros: The overall service and polite crew and ticketing staff. They couldn't be more helpful. I've crossed the Pacific several times and Virgin get my vote.

Cons: The distance to the aircraft after going through boarding! In Melbourne several people just stopped and sat down on the floor to rest as it was a long, long walk to the actual aircraft. Construction being the cause so probably out of Virgins control.

Good 6.3

Pros: The boarding process, on board entertainment, and the flight condition were good.

Cons: I ordered Muslim meal for myself and Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter. While going to Australia they provided Asian vegetarian meals for my daughter and said they forgot to get the Muslim meal. The air hostess said she will look into this so that it would not repeat. During my return from Australia they did not provide Asian vegetarian for my daughter and no Muslim meal for me. And the air host said they would look into this and see that it does not happen during my return. I said this is the return trip. They provided some vegetarian food that not good. And during the return there was no vegetarian choices for the breakfast. The air host didn't even bother to ask my daughter about the food. Very sad.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller.

Cons: Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport

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 and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
