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."

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: "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: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."

Cons: "can not think of any."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"

Cons: "Food a tiny chocalate bar. If VA advertises that it serves food on domestic flights, it should be proper food!"
Pros: "I didn’t die"
Cons: "Where’s the coffee? What about a proper snack? Why are the stewardesses so grumpy?"
Cons: "I am very dissatisfied with virgins service as described above I will certainly be telling all about that and I will likely transfer my velocity membership to qantas upon return to Australia If you want me to yell you how you could have improved your I have many ideas but I’ll slso say you won’t be getting them for nothing !!"

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

Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Minimal amenities"
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."
Cons: "Half hour delay"
Pros: "A cold drink just when I needed it. Thank you"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."

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"

Pros: "Quick check-in"
