Excellent 10.0

Pros: We were pleasantly surprised by the legroom for the regular economy seats. We usually opt extra legroom because my husband is 6'4" but he was very comfortable on this flight. We fly often and on many different airlines, but Virgin always stands out for exceptional service, modern and clean planes (continuously attended to throughout the flight), better meals, friendly staff, extensive entertainment options...definitely one of the best overhaul international flights we've had.

Cons: The check-in procedure at Sydney Airport was a bit of a nightmare. Even the people who had checked in online had to wait in line (for 30 minutes-1 hour) to get boarding pass and check bags. We had carry-on bags only and still had to do this. I understand they need to recheck everyone's documents since the flight was headed to the US, but the available counters and process for moving customers along was very slow. Other than that, we had an excellent 5* star experience.

When they would come around with tea or coffee they would walk so fast I kept having to wave my hands and sometimes they would keep walking and not get to me.

Pros: Virgin does a great job for a great price. Having Resided in the USA for 12 years I've flow many times across the pacific on each of the airlines and I can confidently says they are lightyears better than any of the American Airlines. On my return trip from Sydney I had hit some extraordinary traffic and it took 2hrs to get to the airport in what is usually a 40min drive. This resulted in me arriving less than 1hour from the flights departure time, the checkin staff did what they could to keep me on the flight as planned. Staff in all areas were great, it always a fresh breath of air when I board a virgin Australia flight, so different than traveling in the US of A....

Cons: The Food on Virgin Australia is ok. From the United States to Sydney it was average, on the return leg the quality was much better. They served 2 meals and a mid-flight snack. Their snacks and water station Mid plane is a very welcome touch on the long haul flights. Perhaps one more pass with the full drinks cart will help them join the heavyweights at Qantas.

Pros: This is my third time flying with Virgin Australia from LAX to Sydney return. I LOVE this airline. The staff at every point are friendly, responsive, professional and helpful. I loved the service on board. Nothing seems to be too difficult (this was refreshing as I have flown on many flights throughout Asia and America where the service ethic was not strong. Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service.

I have now missed an important work meeting that I came over for and have been in the same clothes for 48 hours Without my clothes and my critical blood pressure medication. I am frustrated/disappointed/furious would be an understatement. I have travelled with a number of other airlines, but this was by far the worst experience

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Be careful with this airline if you have connections with them. If you’re delayed and miss your connection, they will not help get you onto another flight. You’ll be stranded. Because of this, I had to spend about $1000 to rebook things when my itinerary fell apart because of this one miss.

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.
