Cons: "nothing I didn’t like!"

Pros: "Punctual flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The iPads for the entertainment system were cumbersome. Initially they didn't work for the whole cabin and the FAs had to reboot the system. They were also finnicky to operate. Also, needing to stow them for take-off and landing was a bit cumbersome. It would be much better to use the traditional fixed screens."

Cons: "Flight delayed out of Melbourne."

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

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"

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

Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"

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: "On board food offering was poor Expensive for distance travelled No onboard entertainment"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"

Cons: "Ran a bit late and boarding queue was unusually chaotic."

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: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment options. New iPad system cheaper for airline, but offers less than the in built wired system it replaced."

Pros: "Always organised"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

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."

Pros: "Staff were pleasant enough"
Cons: "Boarded about 40 mins late (understandable but still a negative), entertainment system didn't work at all the entire flight for anyone except Business Class, and the food portion (dinner apparently) was miniscule. I was starving by the time I disembarked."

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 late and Sydney departures chaotic AND CROWDED"

Pros: "Always on time, good range of movies/shows and free wifi"
Cons: "Long wait at the airport checkin, seat was so uncomfortable and paid drinks (including soft drink) after the first meal service... so odd!"

Pros: "Virgin Australia is the best! From the boarding crew to in flight service, everything was above and beyond."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."

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: "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"

Cons: "Plane arrived late Seats I reserved were not honored Asked to move before takeoff and was told no and then someone else just took the seat"

Cons: "Food was really bad. Couldn't take a second bite. Avoid the beef stir fry."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

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: "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!"

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

Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."

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

Pros: "Plane"
Cons: "Delays"

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!"

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

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

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

Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and pleasant throughout the flight. Service was faultless. The choice of entertainment was the best I have come across, movies, games etc. for all ages. The seating was very spacious with plenty of leg room.Thanks Virgin"

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: "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: "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: "It was an uneventful flight, nothing to really complain about that paying more for a better seat couldn't cure; but that's really the decision of the passenger."

Pros: "Staff were good. Comfortable."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding."

Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"

Cons: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"

Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."

Pros: "friendly staff"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Screaming babies!! But that can't be helped!!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and service was excellent."
Cons: "No entertainment on board."

Pros: "friendly staff smooth trip"
Cons: "it got abit stuffy the aircon wasnt great but it was a nice flight"

Pros: "Liked that they boarded from front and back"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing I arrived an hour and half early for my flight line was out the door , I waited just over a hour in line flight was delayed so 23 of us missed our connecting flight ,,, the staff were sarcastic and uppity do we had a 6 hour stopped over ,, staff could have handle the situations better by not lying ,,,,,, I have never complained about a air flight before but I did on this occasion ,,,, definitely will avoid Virgin flights in future and everything on Virgin flights cost money it's ridiculous that people have to go through their bags for money ,,,, just included it all from the start like want. Qantas will Be my future airline"

Pros: "Service excellence"

Pros: "great service, good crew... everything was fine - except for alternative food options - as I've mentioned here."
Cons: "there wasn't any gluten free food options on board, even though food was served as part of the flight. I didn't see anywhere on the website it mentioned that alternative meal options weren't available. fortunately, I took my own food on board for the 5 hour flight."

Cons: "Absolutely nothing - well done Jetstar"

Pros: "Crew always happy and polite."
Cons: "all travellers were polite this trip, which I’m sure was appreciated by the crew."

Pros: "Service was great. Best food hubby and I ever had on a flight, international or domestic!"
Cons: "No issues!"

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

Pros: "Crew were awesome."
Cons: "Free coffee as opposed to paying $4 for an ordinary coffee"

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."

Pros: "The full refund."
Cons: "Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!"

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: "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"

Cons: "Crew attitude"

Cons: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."

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"

Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"

Cons: "How close the seats are."

Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"

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: "Relaxed and no frills service."
Cons: "Budget seats with no decent pockets, hooks or cushioning"

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."

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: "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: "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."

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

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."

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."
