Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Announce the app download well before boarding so that I can get it. I never had a chance"

Pros: "Plane seats are ok - a bit annoying that there is no on board entertainment and you have to use your own phone etc. The butter chicken was edible."
Cons: "It'd be better if there were a selection of direct flights to Canberra. It's quicker to fly to Bali! We spent over 8 hours including wait time to travel from Canberra to Perth - via Sydney. No bag drop in Canberra - that was a surprise."

Pros: "No power at the seats USB or otherwise"

Cons: "No comment all ok"

Pros: "Easy checkin"
Cons: "Flight was late in leaving. Sat in seat for 45 minutes without moving."

Cons: "On time."

Pros: "First time trying the new inflight Wifi - great!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Movie selection was good. Complimentary wine was excellent and plentiful."
Cons: "Seat room was cramped."

Pros: "The flight was fantastic boarding crew were great and the onboard crew were very nice. I enjoyed the onboard wifi and the meal."
Cons: "I didn't like that my gate and terminal numbers were changed so many times. It messed up the meeting of family. Also I really hate that there is not much leg room."

Cons: "No organization in check in process. Staff unfriendly and unhelpful. No control over situation."

Pros: "Information on departure delays was forthcoming"
Cons: "The checkin machine kept giving me my fellow travelor boarding pass and not one for me."

Pros: "Very friendly"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There was an extremely long line at check-in with only a couple of Virgin Australia attendants working. Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Lovely plane, good entertainment, great refreshments!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad!"

Pros: "Free booze. That was literally the only redeeming quality of this 30+ hour trip."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane I flew on (Delta) was different than the company I booked with (Virgin Air). The 15 hour Delta flight was extremely uncomfortable with little leg room (I'm only 5' 3") and no outlets to charge devices. Additionally, my virgin air flight from Perth to Sydney that ran from 12 am to 6 am had no blankets or pillows. I was freezing cold. The stranger next to me saw me trying to wrap my jumper around my feet to keep them warm and offered me his wool jacket to stay warm. Wifi would have also been nice... no wifi."

Cons: "45 minutes queuing for a bag drop is not good enough - plenty of spare check-in desks just not enough staff"

Pros: "Friendly staff; good value refreshment; arrival in Perth was early."
Cons: "On this occasion, all went well. Top marks!"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and as we were overseas and did not know we had been put on a flight 4hrs earlier and as we got to the airport to later than that earlier flight had to buy new tickets with another airline. We are very disappointed as it cost up extra money."

Pros: "Fast Check in & Boading using their self check in system."
Cons: "There were only two toilets at the rear of the plane as the front ones were reserved for Business Class. This caused constant queues from the rear of the plane making it difficult for those leaving the toilet as they worked their way back through the queue. This made it very uncomfortable for the passengers in aisle seats at the rear as people had to invade their space to get past each other, particularly when the food and drinks trolley came through. Entertainment was available only on your own device by planes wifi system. Unfortunately you needed to download an app before flying, so was not able to try this out. Virgin should of communicated this requirement prior to the flight."

Pros: "No significant problem"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no compensation, had to find somewhere to stay, travel to and from airport for a flight the next day instead."

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: "Check in staff most helpful,traveling with oversize lougage,surf board and kites along with carry on.no fuss and searched seating so l had a spear seat on red trip home.thanks"

Pros: "It was an enjoyable flight and we were well looked after by the staff"

Pros: "Service"

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

Pros: "Coffee"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over two hours"

Pros: "I liked the food, and friendly staff. Pilot landed plane very well"
Cons: "We all had to use one run way due to heavy winds and waited on the small plane with nothing to do. I didn't bring my ipad as virgin has always had a screen even if it be 4 from the roof of the plane, there's music with a headset. This plane had nothing at all, I choose virgin for the reason you generally get a good plane. My suggestion is to sell of the bad planes like this one before you loose the customers that trust you."

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

Pros: "2 free checked bags when flying domestically is a big plus!"

Pros: "everything was great"

Pros: "Very little, again delayed in leaving resulting in arrival quite late"
Cons: "Unknowlingly dropped teeth which went under the seat and Virgin has no means of contacting airport to put mind at rest after flight and phone contact almost impossible as staff unable or unwilling to assist. No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice. Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"

Pros: "Empty, friendly staff"
Cons: "Late for my conference"

Pros: "Efficiency at the check-in and the excellent service by the crew on board."

Pros: "The egg and lettuce sandwich was fresh and delicious! A bigger serving would have been nice. The Cadbury biscuit chocolate was also a perfect match with a coffee."

Due to Australia's strict carry-on policy - one item, period - I had to repack my luggage, which contained a fragie printer that had been in my carry-on when I could have it AND a computer bag. The Jet Star allowed two checked pieces, and the agent gave me all the time I needed to make the changes. She then marked the bag fragile, and sent me to the oversize/fragile bay with it.

As upset as we were about that situation they were extremely accommodating. They said the Landon strip in Bali had broke so we couldn't land. They Bieber, gave us free coffee, tea and juices and gave us all free onboard entertainment. When we got to Melbourne they had set up free shuttle server and out us all up in a very very nice suite and gave us a voucher for breakfast which was more than enough!
