All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."

Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."

Cons: "i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!"
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."

Cons: "The food was not good and it was not enough"

Cons: "Ancient plane in bad need of a refurb."

Cons: "Lounges were dirty"
Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "Lounge in melb was dirty, food average. Lounge in Adelaide was over packed - couldn't get a seat"
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 ."
Cons: "Plane was too hot near the end during a holding pattern"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and we had decent leg room for economy. Flight was on-time unlike Quantas"
Cons: "Food was not appealing but the beverages were great."
Pros: "The crew was SO polite, hospitable, professional the helpful. They were so kind when someone (us!) had a screaming four year old we were trying to calm down. They offered her a hot chocolate.... so kind and helped immensely. We were very impressed and will look to fly internationally with Virgin AU."
Cons: "Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight."
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process"
Cons: "Seats too close together"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Cons: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "Happy crew"
Cons: "Melbourne weather lol"
Cons: "The flight was fine but it was 4 hours behind schedule."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly crew!"
Cons: "Leaving the day before. Not having just one but three delays and three changes of flights."
Cons: "The computers continue to be problematic. It took 25 minutes at the checkin desk to get the system to take my document numbers. Also the in flight movie system has issues with touch sensing, often being slow to respond and misreading the location of the touch."
Cons: "Economy boarding was in just 2 batches with the front rows first. This results in a lot of standing waiting for people to get into their seats. Entertainment was ok but could have used a better selection of movies. I ended up watching movies I had seen before."
Cons: "Food could improve"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Efficient in flight service including a bev and energy bar."
Cons: "Queuing lines could have been more organizered. Using stanchions would have helped organized the process. Also no one could hear the queuing instructions. Otherwise great flight!"
Cons: "vegetarian meal was a small side salad and soggy. this over lunchtime so was a disgrace for business class"
Pros: "I like Virgin Australia -- luggage allowances are generous and it's nice to have a snack."
Cons: "Flight was late, snack was not nearly as nice as on my previous trip (little crunchy snacks instead of cheese & crackers), they didn't want to serve hot drinks but offered no caffeinated substitute (in my opinion, if they are going to halt hot beverage service due to turbulence, they should offer free soft drinks instead, or at least free beer & wine since that would have been offered anyway if the flight had been on NSW time). Nothing major, just not as great as my previous experience with this airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants Movie selections Food All Great!!!!!"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay"
Cons: "Initial temperature was a little low but it improved"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was great as usual"

Pros: "Flight crew"
Pros: "I loved wverything the check in lines, service was great, the seats were that i chose was given to me all and all, i will be a returning customer, hopefully the flight home will be just as smooth"
Cons: "I tried to check in online it didnt let me butt it might of just been my fault"
Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1:hour 10 minutes"
Pros: "Free wifi is amazing! This is something all airlines need to take more attention of!! Some airlines have ridiculous charges for wifi."
Cons: "Annoying that they didn’t board via the front and rear exit, but this was probably because it was raining. Half the plane boarded via the “priority pass” would be kinda disappointed if I had a high status only to board with half the plane."
Cons: "Flight delayed initially because of a cracked window, was an hour late before it was communicated. Then on a new aircraft, forced to return to the gate when cabin crew identified a vacuum cleaner part as a suspicious item. All told 2hrs 15 mins late."
Pros: "Politeness of staff Check in"
Cons: "Using the back stairs Inflight wifi Costs"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff were very respectful and hospitable"
Pros: "Can't complain at all with Virgin's A380"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "15 hour flight and the crew walked up and down the isle every 3-4 minutes shining a flashlight in your face and over all the seats. I asked if this would continue all night and they said yes as it’s how they check on drunk passengers etc and that it was part of the aircraft safety. Was very intrusive and impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Another delay by 1 hour"
Cons: "I should only book qantas .... virgin are never in time."
Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."
Pros: "Good movies. Food was good. Flight was good."

Pros: "Flight attendants made the trip very nice."
Cons: "A little more legroom on a long international flight would be helpful."
Pros: "People were nice, and hoarding and disembarking was efficient."
Cons: "My bag got lost, and they didn't deliver it until very late. Also, the taxi driver somehow had the wrong address, so I had to give the correct one to him over the phone after he called me, confused about where he was."
Pros: "Great flight, punctual, great movie options, great food, friendly and helpful flight attendants. After the chaos of boarding and disembarking that marks domestic US flights, Virgin's quick and painless boarding and disembarking of a much larger aircraft was a breath of fresh air. Great job VA!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was all good."
Pros: "It wasn’t outstanding but no major problems Whereas the boarding process for the flight from Melbourne to LAX was poor 3 and half hour delay on tarmac no air flow Only to have a person disembark as well further delay ( dont blame her) The staff were ok but their hollow reassurances about support that would be given on the ground in LAX because of the delays were just that Told virgin staff would be on hand to assist TOTALLY UNTRUE yes they we’re there but didNOTHING to assist with ongoing flight delays"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Friendly staff willing to make sure that trip was comfortable"
Cons: "A broader range of movies on Virgin Entertainment"
Pros: "Virgin Australia’s staff is some of the most friendly and professional staff I’ve flown with. They go above and beyond to be hospitable. Also, this particular flight was an evening flight and they even had complimentary snacks- not just peanuts but actual crackers and cheese. There was a small delay in the beginning due to crew having to come from another late aircraft but they handled it very professionally and despite starting late, still got us to our destination ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Fast check in, friendly staff"
Pros: "Departed on time. Arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Leg room - very cramped"
Cons: "In this day and age, i expect to have free entertainment even with a short hall"
Pros: "Not much. 1hr 5min flight was 1 hr 10 min late. The cabin crew seemed disinterested."
Cons: "The crew was poor. One chewing gum, another picking her hair/head throughout the flight like she has nits. The third lolling around and chatting/gossiping to the others. This is a short flight. The least they could have done was behave professionally."
Pros: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "Late departure, uncomfortable seats, rude staff"
Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and great collection of entertainment even tho had pay"
Cons: "Checking process in Denpasar was really bad. Had to wait almost 45 min at the counter even tho I had all the visa documents. Lack of knowledge of the ground staff of Jetstar. They need to get trained well."
Pros: "Nothing it’s budget for a reason. Not comfortable just anfl flight. You even pay for a blanket if your cold!"
Cons: "I was unwell had paid for a seat and requested if not a full flight to be moved so not sitting next to someone. Staff declined said it was full flight and rolled eyes. Asked on flight. Got told I could try to love after take off to a spare row 4 rows back."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free food or water"
Pros: "The crew heard this person carrying on and did nothing"
Cons: "Another passenger was rude and disrespectful to personal space in my seating"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Great staff/crew"
Pros: "Chic muffin"
Cons: "Flight was delayed .... it’s always delayed!!!! I just gate this airline but sometimes there just is no choice !"
Pros: "It took off and landed"
Cons: "Rude Jetstar staff at Coolingatta found we had 4 items weighing 15.5 kg instead of 14 and wanted to charge us $60 to load a bag on plane. Last Jetstar flight for me"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment facilities or capabilities"
Cons: "My father passed away this morning, and I couldn’t call anyone to change my flight. The number didn’t work. So I had to purchase 2 new tkts for the 11.30 flight home."
Pros: "Before departure and On board staff is good."
Cons: "it is more like a Cage Chicken situation, where the seats and spaces are shrinking every day. No room to move and keens from people behind you is pinching your arse all the time. Should have pay bit more in Virgin or Qantas and get some space to breath. Kayak does not offer extra luggage at time of you booking and jetstar sucks you like a leach on upgrading after booking. One of the passengers were not able to travel and ticket was complete lost , where as the inbound flight on Qantas gave us credit for the future. In the end , the total cost ends up close to other airlines with all the discomfort on the flight free."
Pros: "Newer plane, arrived on time."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time."
Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Cons: "Seats are very worn out, and quite uncomfortable at the lower back part."
Pros: "Plane delayed 1.5 hours late"
Cons: "That you had to walk all the way to the back water fountain for water. Water should be given out. It is very important to hydrate whilst flying"
Pros: "I honestly can't think of a single thing I liked about this flight, but if pressed, perhaps I enjoyed the staff in Honolulu during check in. The rest was horrible. Hated it all."
Cons: "Absolutely horrible. This airline is truly the Greyhound of the sky. There was an absurd amount of families on this flight with really young screaming, ill-behaved children and their indifferent parents. The flight attendants were equally indifferent and unhelpful. You get absolutely nothing for free - everything cost - food, blankets, pillows, etc. on this 10 hour flight. AND when water was requested, it was a small, mouthwash size cup with a note, that "we charge for water." $4. Wow. Probably one of the worst experiences in the air ever. I won't be back. The price was stellar, but after paying for seats, luggage and enduring the people on the flight, I'd prefer to pay more and get A LOT MORE from an airline like Virgin Australia. If you're cutting corners and trying to save money, save yourself and your sanity and spend a little more on quality airline."
Pros: "At least it was on-time, but nothing much is good about budget airlines."
Cons: "Out of all aircraft I've flown, Jetstar seem to have the smallest space allocated to passengers, it's not about comfort, just about the money and how many people they can cramp into their economy space. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. No one bothered me while I was sleeping."
Cons: "Food not complementary. No entertainment option"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the landing was very smooth"
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff and arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable and it's a very bad time to have to fly"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Staff unfriendly, it helpful... more interested in sell you more things than those of us that have bought tickets. They need to smile a bit more"
Cons: "Impossible to sleep"
Pros: "On time Polite and friendly crew Way better than Qantas"
Cons: "Jetstar's communications with us by e-mail did not include our eTicket number, as a result our other carrier could not onforward our baggage directly, and we had to do passport/baggage/checkin/passport again at Bangkok."
Pros: "Everything, except luggages were not included"
Cons: "We had to pay for any entertainment"
Pros: "Jack at the customer service desk dealt with my problem in the perfect professional manner. He didn't stop until he found a solution for me. I was very impressed with this airline"
Pros: "My seat 12F...."
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: "the cost"
Cons: "the fact that my flight was pushed back. no big deal, but would have been nice if it was on time."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "NEW check in procedure with lack of instruction Seat spacing and lack of room in cattle class, first seat I have ever had that it's so called upright position actually bent you uncomfortably forward during take off and landing and I used to work in the industry"
Pros: "Ease of boarding n checking in."
Cons: "Took awhile before we found out the gate. Not ur fault but too many crying babies on flt"
Pros: "Good price/value for money."
Cons: "Paperwork issues caused a 1 hour delay leaving Perth, could have been handled better."
Pros: "The took me from Singapore to Melbourne and that's the only thing I am happy with"
Cons: "Very rude and not friendly staff My carry-on weighted 9.5 kilos and they forced me to check in my carry on. The cost was 160 SGD which is insane. They said it's airline's policy and my response was that it's a stupid policy The entertainment service sucks. You have to pay for everything No food /snack provided during the flight. Oh sorry they were willing to sell you a small snack for 20$. I found that this airline just tries to gauge people. Pro ide minimal information during ticket purchase and the surprise you at the gate and during the flight. Not happy at all...Never will fly with jetstar again."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly staff on board. Easy check in and boarding. Slight departure delay but arrived on time."
Cons: "Food options aren't great or cheap, but it's a budget airline so what do you really expect? Same goes for baggage. 7kg carry-on isn't a lot but prepare for it properly and you'll have no problems - you can't complain when you're charged for being a few kilos over."
Pros: "We got everything we paid for"
Cons: "Some of the cabin crew including the manager need to lighten up and smile occasionally"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Felt safe"
Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."
Pros: "Free TV"
Cons: "Staff.... hot dogs for breakfast"
Cons: "Walk from gate 49 to closest exit doors 1.9km, no travellators. Are you kidding me? Never again."
Pros: "Smooth transition for daughter who needed assistance to board"
Cons: "Having to sit apart especially when there were vacant seats"
Pros: "the price was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "we had to pay to check bags, change flights, etc. also, no free little snacks or movies, radio, etc."
Pros: "The ease of online check-in and printing my baggage stickers upon arrival at the airport. The staff at the check-in desk were lovely, the staff on the plane were lovely; it was great."
Cons: "Nothing. I've previously had very average experiences with Jetstar which made me uncertain about booking these flights but I was completely overthrown by the service turn-around. I'm now a Jetstar advocate."
Cons: "Smell of sewage throughout flight."
