I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

Pros: "You get what you pay for. Can't complain."
Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."
Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."
Pros: "Easy flight."
Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"
Pros: "slightly more roomy than most carriers"
Cons: "since it was a Friday during Lent, there could have been non-meat options on the meals. One lunch and one supper offered only chicken and beef both times."
Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Seats near bathroom were very noisy"
Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Cons: "I was not able to pay for excess luggage online because I was told that I had to do it 48 hours in advance. I did not know I need and extra bag until the day before i left. So instead of paying the 1 dollar promotional fee advertised online i have to pay 191 dollars at the airport. That is ridiclous."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Flight was onetime plane was clean and the staff was courteous.

The absolute best in service and comfort.

At Cairo air port when we were checking the officer asked about documents that proof we were injected against karona which is not required fortunately we have them and showed him then he processed the boarding pass

Liked food. Service could have been better. More water trips would have been good.

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "The comfort ,food"
Cons: "Crew was not polite and had an attitude when requests was made."
Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."

Pros: "Food and beverage choices were excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was delayed a lot and not properly handled. I was in Business class, still there was no information about what would happen when. Onboard, the TV (ICE) and internet were struggling to keep up with user demand. Did not load or connect sometimes. Different crew members had same standard answer - try later. While sleeping in Business class, I was woken up twice by a rude crew member (Velma Ndubi). She even refused to tell me her name because she did not want me to complain. Her attitude ruined the flight for me."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, nice amenities near the gate."
Cons: "The menu had a vegetarian and a chicken option, but when the trolley came around, they only had vegetarian options. We were in the fourth or fifth row from the front (in Economy), so it's surprising if they ran out of the chicken option that early."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and timely flights"
Cons: "Very poor planning/organizing , as we starved after boarding the a plane because of the bad time management of the food service We also boarded very late in Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "Legroom and how attentive and pleasant the fight crew was."

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"
Pros: "awosam"

Cons: "Hard to sleep with multiple service times"

Pros: "Like everything"
Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

Would like it if my seat could recline.

Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."

Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"

Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."
Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."

Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
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: "Service was poor."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"

Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "I don't injure about anyone else but when I fly such long distances you get anxious over being cared for. Stewards were great, food was great and plenty of it. Anything you needed just let them online and they will accommodate"
Cons: "We were delayed due to wheel problems which ultimately affected my connecting flight. Missed the flight"
Pros: "Service and food was pretty good."
Cons: "Didn't care for the movie selection. Not much of a variety."

Cons: "The wing in the Brisbane terminal had no charging stations and only two toilet stalls in the women's bathroom."

Pros: "I loved the food and snacks and the endless selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Leg space could be a bit better. When people put there seat back the back of their head was right in my face and so I had to recline mine back Hahaha"
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."
Cons: "older aircraft"
Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."
Cons: "The 747 we flew was older and noisy. Our trip to Sydney from LAX was aboard an Airbus A-380 ... much quieter, roomier, and equipped with the latest technology."
Pros: "Seat spacing was bigger than my flights to Bangkok/Taipei, loved movie choices"
Cons: "sanitation wipes for trays and arm rests"

Pros: "China airlines service is very good"
Cons: "Newer planes to Manila"
Pros: "Food was good. Seating is very tight. Bathrooms were clean and well-stocked."
Cons: "I smelled the breakfast food, but it was “optional” or something? We had to ask for it special; I must have missed the announcement. Don’t know why they didn’t just serve it with over an hour before we reached destination."
Cons: "The food could have been more tasty and warm."
Pros: "Very enjoyable and comfortable flight"
Pros: "The Flight was awesome in all aspects, And the Seats were exceptionally comfortable"
Pros: "We have now been on both TAIWAN based carriers in the past six months. CI aircraft interiors were more visually appealing- I remember BR being too dark..."
Cons: "The temperature fluctuations of the aircraft. This is really for all airlines, usually too hot upon boarding & too cold 3hrs in... Also, no coach class amenity kit. I think BR gave us "sleeping" face masks for a similar length trip..."
Pros: "Services verygood"

Pros: "Nice clean plane. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Couldn’t fault anything"

Cons: "you will be the first to go inside and come out last. food is not impressive at sll!"
Pros: "cheap ticket buf it comes with a cost-- a seat on the end rear section of the plane!"
Cons: "the cheap ticket that you reserved on line puts you at the tail portion of the plane where you will have to endure a 14 hours of turbulence. food is not impressive! the plane left lax so late that we have to run to our connecting gate in taipei!"

Cons: "The food was not great but got the job done. Could use a wider movie selection."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent, there were so many choices to choose from, it made the long flight less stressful....The Boeing 777-300ER was smooth and quiet for a twin aisle plane of its size. Lavatory was clean most of the time"
Cons: "Even booking 3 months in advance, we could not select the seats. Our seats were assigned while checking in. Thus our family of 3 had to sit apart from each other."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."

Pros: "I wish I could say something, but I cant."
Cons: "Flight was initally delayed 1 1/2 hours to depart at 1:00am it happens. Upon boarding, I noticed the planes legroom was close to none. Within 10 minutes of being on the plane the power shut off, lights out, air flow cut off. Lights turn back on although air doesn't and the captain re assures 10-15 minutes. 2 1/2 hours yes 2 1/2 hours later he says 10-15 minutes again and says the same skit explaining they fixed the problem. Plane turned off again. At this time it was close to 5am and I chose to take my carry on and head towards the front of the plane. The captain has no answers for the alarmed passengers, in which all they could say is if we step off tge plane we choose to leave the flight. Almost in the tone of a threat. We were all fewring our safety for the 9 hour trek over the pacifac ocean. After going back and forth for about 45 mins they finally said if you dont feel comfortable follow me and we will try and locate later flights for you all. 60 of us left the plane and ultimately got flights 12-24 hours later. Horrible experience, horrible communication, no appologies, and on top of that they did not send my bag with the correcr plane, in which I had recieved it 4 days later. My replacement flight wqs on EVA air. Much better airline in which I will never travel with China Airlines ever again."
Pros: "Overall staff was pleasant. Food was ok. Leg room was pretty tight. For a short 3 hour flight it was bearable."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and quick despite the size of the plan."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and not much leg room."
Pros: "Need more movies and newer movies"
Pros: "Never rebooted entertainment after it shut off until we were ready to land and left it in boarding mode"
Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours and when we boarded we sat at the gate for 40 min and then sat waiting taxing on the runway for another 45 min. The flight became more than 3+ hours late in total."
Pros: "- Very helpful flight attendants - Surprisingly decent airline food"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "direct fight"
Cons: "rude passenger who refused to put down his arm rest in between us. the food was really bad. our seats got switch after airport check in."
Pros: "Entertainment system and the interior of the plane cabin."
Cons: "Crammed seats and how one female flight attendant yelled at a passenger out of impatience."
Pros: "China Airlines was very understanding with my carry-on situation as I had important medical equipment to hand carry."
Pros: "schedule was still on time inspite of airport deficiency."
Cons: "waited for an hour inside the plane for take-off due to damaged airport runway assigned seat had poor leg room as expected when you are in economy was not assigned a seat for connecting flight to LA until we reached Taipei's pre boarding area. when we did we got the last 2 rows in the plane - 71 D & E. Turbulence is more pronounced. My head was shaking"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Long delay."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Short flight, and getting a meal made it go faster"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"

Pros: "Comfortable economy class, food throughout the flight."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. No seat charging. It would have been nice to know this a head of time so we could have prepared (tracing with 3 kids). Right before we took off crew told everyone to down load virgin app, they didn’t specify the entertainment app. So we were not able to watch any movies."
Cons: "Flight left late... I missed my Delta connection from LAX to New York. The Delta staff told me that this flight routinely arrives late. Also, my previous flight that I was booked on, VA7, was canceled the day before. It’s been a nightmare"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Internet service was terribly spotty, but then again you're flying over vast amounts of ocean. Other than that, comfy and reliable flight that I could actually sleep on."
Pros: "The crew were OK. I had no personal interactions. I found the seating uncomfortable and not what I had requested for medical issues."

Pros: "I’ve been on dozens of flights prior to this one, this is the first flight I’ve really enjoyed. The service was so good that I was smiling in my seat thinking how great this is. The food was delicious! And free! And very high quality. Coconut, pistachios, frittata, muesli, omelette. Amazing!"
Cons: "Best airline ever! Add movies though, everyone loves staring into lit screens while the world passes by them, quite literally in this case."

Cons: "Didn't have enough landing cards."
Pros: "Nice ppl"
Cons: "Nothing it was great!"
Pros: "Great flight. Nice and roomy, one of the few airlines left that only has 9 across on a Boeing 777 (I will not fly on airlines that have 10 across). Well done Virgin Australia for not treating us like sardines! Friendly crew. Great entertainment options."

Cons: "There is no negative with this airline from ground crew to air flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The food was okay but not at good as my previous Virgin flight"
Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."
Pros: "Efficiency and kindness were evident in all my interactions with Virgin"
Pros: "Crew friendly Plane half full"

It was a very long wait for elderly people and meant we had no time for anything at the airport despite setting out far earlier than we needed to. Then when we reached Newcastle no bag arrived. It wa The worse part is trying to sort it out. Phone calls get lots of menus but no one to talk to"

Cons: "Only 2 toilets for economy passengers on a full flight."
Pros: "Things went smoothly and on time thanks"
Pros: "Plane was clean and the service crew was capable."
Cons: "Flight took off a half hour late and this 4 plus hour international flight from Australia to New Zealand had NOTHING TO EAT. This flight didn't offer a muffin or power bar only beverages. I have never been on a 4 hour flight where the passengers were not given some small complimentary snack. Shame on Virgin Australia."
Pros: "Check in was easy as they had plenty of representatives available. Short flight so did not experience food / entertainment, but everything was on time, crew was friendly, and they quickly had our bags out at the other end. We sat in the exit row so had plenty of legroom."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Check in was horrible. Why have automated machines when they don't work and cause twice as much work for your employees. That was the only thing bad about me experience"
