Cons: "Food was a bit too rich, maybe a lighter option in the menu would be useful as both were quite thick sauces."
Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Pros: "Crew were great!"
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."

Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."

I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep.

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"

Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best... no water bottles provided... chronically thirsty on that flight."
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: "Seated at the back of the plane. Ran out of food options."
Pros: "Communication was not existent"

Pros: "Amazing crew, food, and experience."
Pros: "Crew were amazing, food was delicious"

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: "I did not like anything at all"
Cons: "They have problem finding my ticket because they say delta rebooked my ticket and they don’t have the information. I almost missed my flight for that reason. I don’t think I will ever book with Virgin Australia again"
Cons: "Delayed flight VA1519 Sydney to Townsville. Received sms that new flight is 2pm Received email that new flight is 3pm Called virgin who guaranteed me it’s 3pm so I asked for that in writing...no was the answer Asked to speak to mgr, same lady came back to now “guarantee “ it’s 2pm. Spoke to mgr this time guaranteed 2pm and Will email in half hour (I’ll be boarding by then ! Sorry best I can do but you are now in seat 3a economy x. Asked for complaint to be lodged, unsure if she did? At virgin check in no details of everything above. Showed lady two conflicting msgs from virgin and the above so she put me in 3a... I could have been there at 3pm if I didn’t ask for it in writing. That potentially could have cost me upwards of a grand if I had to stay another night in Sydney and another ticket... not happy!!!"
Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."
Cons: "We were booked with a 45 min layover between flights, however they offboarded us and said that the minimum booking run is 1 hr required. Poor on Kayak end."
Pros: "Happy to be on last leg. Good crew one of whom told some guests to shut up while she delivered the safety information. I thought that was great that she had the guts and did the right thing. Give her a bonus as we are all taking the delivery for granted."
Cons: "who would you ever satisfy with food on a plane on short flights???"
Pros: "We arrived in Adelaide"
Cons: "Having to wait in a massive line for an hour to check in our bags after landing in Melbourne from a Virgin Australia international flight - there should be a special counter for guests who are transferring."
Pros: "Easy checkin online. Easy bag drop at airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Snack enjoyable."
Cons: "Typical seating, far too cramped. Person beside me encroached on my personal space throughout the flight. Thank goodness it was only a 2hr flight between Melbourne & Brisbane."

Pros: "although late leaving we made up a bit of time."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy"
Pros: "Great snack!!"
Cons: "I had a cold air vent blowing on me. Crew did nothing even though I asked 3 times to turn the AC down or provide me with a blanket. I will not fly on this airline again or recommend it to my friends."
Pros: "Nothing,the flight was full of young children,who waited hours before flight after getting in plane we were told the flight will be further delayed,we would reach Auckland 3;15 am, people were hungry the airline should have had the decency to feed the passenger."
Pros: "The overall service and polite crew and ticketing staff. They couldn't be more helpful. I've crossed the Pacific several times and Virgin get my vote."
Cons: "The distance to the aircraft after going through boarding! In Melbourne several people just stopped and sat down on the floor to rest as it was a long, long walk to the actual aircraft. Construction being the cause so probably out of Virgins control."
Cons: "When booking nothing was said if you are traveling short hours like 3 or less even you are traveling international you have to pay for every baggage that you have to check in so we were surprised that we have to pay $230 for the 2 package we check in . Last time we have to use this airline"
Pros: "We paid for Premium Seating- not quite Business Class, but supposedly like Business on a domestic flight. Boarding was great, right after business. We had problems with my seating, but the crew did everything they could to amend the issues. The crew was wonderful and really took great care of us."
Cons: "Right away we found out my chair was broken, and couldn't recline. Also, we had been placed in the first row of Premium and there are no automatic footrests. The crew has to bring those out. But there weren't any on board the plane at all. And since I'm only 5'2" tall, my feet don't reach the floor, causing blood circulation to be cut off in my legs from the pressure of hanging on the seat. No recline for 12+ hours, and no foot rest = a lot of pain and discomfort. I've been to the doctor twice since arriving home and am still in pain."
Pros: "Complimentary snack and drink."
