Cons: "Glad to have an isle seat"
Pros: "Flight was great except the turbulence but that is expected"
Cons: "Hardly any legroom"
Pros: "Free entertainment was a pleasant surprise. Luggage check-in was another, my luggage made it from Perth to Queenstown even though the 2 fights were separate bookings and changed from Virgin to Air New Zealand."
Cons: "NO legroom. Thank God for the short (3.5 hrs) flight. Tall people are definitely being discriminated against if we have to pay more for equivalent comfort."
Pros: "Larger plane."
Cons: "Stewards missed serving me twice. I pressed call button and was ignored. Kids meal and vegetarian preferences were ignored. Abu Dhabi made all Sydney passengers go through security including full cabin luggage checks twice. Abu Dhabi made me check in the duty free that I bought in Dublin. It was a connecting flight so why on earth was that something I had to do. I could not check in online, choose seats or update preferences. They sat my daughter separately and I was fobbed off in each airport and until Abu Dhabi where the cabin manager took so long I had to ask another passenger to swap. My son was sick as he walked off the ramp and I had to stand and direct people around the vomit for over 10 minutes while staff dragged their feet getting help. I will never fly Virgin with etihad again."
Pros: "Friendly crew who offered to make me a cup of tea and offered me refreshments whilst rest of passengers were asleep. Perfect and just what I needed :)"
Cons: "Tasteless unappetising vegetarian dinner, uncomfortable seats, no duty free shopping offered"
Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."
Pros: "Miss Rankin was on board with me. She traveled to the back of the plane to an empty seat next to me from seat 9F."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in from the kayak app..."
Pros: "Thanks Simone and team."
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited"
Pros: "Great service and a free hot meal! Couldn't ask for more."
Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Pros: "The crew service was amazing. The flight attendant went the extra mile and actually put another blanket on me as I slept, which was a comforting extra touch. This was in Business Class."
Cons: "For a night flight of 4 hours duration, the business class meal service should be express, to maximize opportunity to sleep."
Pros: "The lumbar support in the Virgin seat makes all the difference, plus the info re toilets, either get up now or wait till food service stops, and the instruction to put seat in upright position for eating much appreciated. I also LOVED the unexpected brilliant in-house video of psychology. Dr Andrew Ley(?) Food was great, nothing ridiculous, hot tasty and healthy. I liked there was no over packaging that took up my tray table room. Jetstar is a torture chamber with those seats that cause your back to curl over."
Cons: "The boarding had not started at the time due 22:25, I went to the rest room and on return the gate was closed for boarding. Staff advised they had commenced removing my luggage from the plane. The plane was still there but they would not let me board.! There was no call or final call or even a personal call with my name., staff said they were not required to do that. Then after pleading with no result, I requested my baggage. Staff sent me to baggage claim 2. There was no baggage, and by that time no Virgin Australia staff in the airport until 3pm the following day. I was stuck in a foreign airport, no luggage, no assistance at all from Virgin Australia to get my luggage, find accommodation, rebook a flight which resultingly cost US$900. I was distraught, the plane was still there and my luggage had not yet been removed and they refused me to board the flight!! The Virgin guy in charge was obnoxious and could not have cared less about my welfare, he personally accused me of swearing and I calmly reminded him I had not once used derogitorive language, that language was from another customer who was also refused to board. I question W that the flight was overbooked? This is not the airline Sir Richard Branson whom I have briefly met in Cairns airport promotes. Pitiful service.!!"
Pros: "Priority boarding is great"
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no announcement.Delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, roomy seats. Smiling , friendly staff. Very helpful to all passengers"

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."
Pros: "The entire service is great I'd be happy to pay more for a flight with virgin then any other airline"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "Impeccable and attentive service More spacious seats"
Cons: "Crying babies during the entire flight, not that the flight could help it but wish there were more quiet areas for passengers without families"
Cons: "my seat got changed"
Pros: "I like that the plane landed safely. The crew on the plane were nice and the food was good for airplane food. There seemed to be an abundance of entertainment options but I was working so didn't really get a chance to use them. Staff on board the plane and on board experience was great."
Cons: "The people who were working at the front desk at check in seemed to be very inconvenienced by the fact I was checking into my flight, which seems like it's supposed to be their jobs, if I'm not mistaken. I had golf clubs and was told to wait at a desk were I stood for 10 mins while a woman looked at the computer, not looking up from it in the whole time. There was another lady checking clubs too, and you would thing it was the fist time they had ever had to check golf clubs into a flight; I assume that's not true."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"
Pros: "High degree of professionalism and friendly service."
Cons: "I could not find anywhere on your website to either cancel the flight or re-schedule for after I'd recovered from a ruptured appendix operation. I won't therefore be using kayak again to book airfares."
Pros: "Check in awesome. Personnel awesome. Movie selection is limited and music seems to be all rock for young people. Could not find any classical music."
Cons: "The club at Sydney airport did not open until around 8:40AM while our incoming flight came in at 6:00AM. Needed club service upon arrival."
Pros: "VA ticketing representatives were as helpful as they could be once we figured out why my reservation wasn't popping up. They let me know BYOjet had charged me, but had not yet paid VA for my flight to Sydney so my reservation was on hold and I needed to contact BYOjet."
Cons: "BYOjet charged my card $1300 but cancelled my reservation because they needed card authorization (which they did not notify me!) After going back and forth with BYOjet for 72 minutes I ended up having to purchase a seperate ticket at the VA counter for $299 because BYOjet has the WORST customer service ever."
Cons: "Food service was terrible. We were given biscuits. They charge for drinks. Give me qantus any day. Nothing to read in my chair."
Pros: "The checking-in in Perth domestic terminal was very fast. The flight was less uncomfortable than usual for the economy class."
Cons: "The lack of food options."
Pros: "Plane an easy boarding process. Attendant was very helpful when processing our baggage with an interrupting phone we jad to take."
Pros: "The whole service"
Cons: "Vegetarian option and hot food very important especially for elderly people."
Cons: "no entertainment only back lab was available long ques i only fly virgin at least 6 x times a year"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Beef dish was mainly rice with insufficient meat or gravy to flavour the rice and there were no vegetables. Entertainment selection was of little choice with documentaries that were not only unsuitable for children but in my opinion unsatisfactory for adults."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All perfect recomendable thanks"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Overall great experience"
Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"
Pros: "I liked the organisation"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Long flight but staff attentive"
Cons: "Baggage at Sydney was extremely slow coming almost an hour !"
Pros: "Overall experience very good"
Cons: "All goid"
Cons: "Appalling service got a text about 20 hours before departure cancelling the flight. Alternatives totally unsuitable. 1am or 5 am when I had a daytime flight"
Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"
Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."
Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"
Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Didn't get the food i ordered. Not even close. Entertainment choices very low. No value for extra cost. Staff would not deal with passengers congregating in aisle for majority of journey."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."
Pros: "cost effective, good flight."
Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed earlier than time."
Cons: "Domestic flights don't offer food and entertainment which is difficult for families with children."
Pros: "The plane was not full plenty of room to move to a better seat with a window."
Cons: "No entertainment so was a bit boring plus why pay for seats when they move you to a different anyway."
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: "Swift check in and boarding and exit."
Cons: "Terrible seating. I'm 6ft 1 and I felt cramped and couldn't get comfortable. I was constantly kicking the person in front of me in the back and under the seat."
Cons: "Food was horrendous and staff service was poor considering we were in business."
Pros: "Jetstar is a comparatively budget airline owned by Qantas. We were in Business class from Honolulu to Sydney and that's a well timed flight considering it takes a little over 10 hours, leaving Honolulu at 8:30am and arriving in Sydney at 3:00pm. We normally fly Qantas business for international flights but in this case it's almost double the cost. Jetstar Business doesn't have lie flat beds, it provides wide and comfortable seats and they don't recline very far, but as this particular flight is completely in daylight hours it doesn't matter too much. We will always choose this particular flight because of the combination of timing and cost, so well done Jetstar."
Pros: "Boarding was good and check in!"
Cons: "Dont have any entertainement and dont have usb to charge cellphones!"
Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Lack of room when seated"
Cons: "Return journey of our flight was moved so disrupted our onward flights. Getting in touch with customer services was impossible. Only way is to 'live chat' then they tell you their hands are tied and to speak to the 'refunds team' who don't have a number and will 'be in touch with you'. They won't be. Then outbound flight was cancelled at the last minute. Waiting for a refund........and waiting. If it's a choice between jet star or swimming to your next destination, swim."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."
Cons: "Had a misunderstanding with a visa waiver for my girlfriend who's is English. The particular hostess that brought it to our attention was quite dull and sour with the whole situation. After about 15 minutes of basically saying she couldn't board the flight, another jet star person came over and quickly ingot Ed us that we could purchase a visa waiver on the spot for 750 baht. Problem solved and his mannerism were far more bright and cheerful. A smile goes a long way"
Pros: "it was on time..."
Cons: "charging for entertainment...no blankets for an overnight 6hour long flight... customer service is just the worse I've seen on an airline. Don't get me started on the baggage allowance surcharges... Still found one very friendly staff at the Sydney Airport though, there is still hope. Get on it Jetstar, get on it."
Pros: "Terrible seat"
Pros: "On checking in, they charged us a penalty fee, and then our flight got cancelled at the last minute without any options to get back to the city in time for work. Had to book a last minute flight with a different airline and couldn't get luggage back in time to take it along!"
Pros: "Have flown with jet star and I always have a great flight and I really enjoy how amazing the flight crew always are. Will continue to choose Jetstar for my domestic flights."
Pros: "Due to storms a 1 1/2 hour delay which is understandable until I found a friend on Qantas left on time. Delay on all Jetstar to Sydney and that afternoon but unaccountably Qantas mostly in time."
Pros: "Left & arrived on time -AKL to SYD."
Cons: "Not as low cost as advertised. Hidden costs: pay extra to pick a seat. Any seat. No luggage allowance, must pay extra for 1st checked bag. No complimentary drinks, must pay top price for coffee, water, juice. Airline coffee in paper cup. Credit card or debit only. Toilet use might be free... did not ch check."
Cons: "I obviously purchased my tickets too fast. I missed the hidden check-in option online which is a UX recommendation I have for Jetstar, to make this more visible (particularly on international flight selection). This was my fault, but being charged $160 at the airport to check a 9kg bag in made me feel I was being ripped off and left a sour taste in my mouth towards the Jetstar brand. I'll never fly with them again. Even movies and water needed to be purchased on the flight."
Pros: "Very convenient."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"
Pros: "On time both ways"
Cons: "Paying extra for food and only use credit card not cash Paying extra for entertainment Extra for baggage & seating all these extra costs make the cheaper flight not so cheap!"
Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."
Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."
Pros: "The smooth takeoff and landing, the staff cortesies"
Cons: "The 5min wait but perfect otherwise"
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable as the Padding wasn't attached to the seat"
Cons: "On time"
