Pros: "Our plane was delayed on the tarmac in Melbourne and we then missed our connecting flight to Mildura. Virgin could not organize another flight for us so we had to hire a car to drive to Mildura. We then had to cancel our flights Mildura to Melbourne Melbourne to Brisbane because we had to return the hire car to Melbourne. I had to book new flight from Melbourne to Brisbane and was told on Thursday when I cancelled our flights for Sunday that we could not get a refund. Unhappy about the entire experience. We were going to a funeral on Friday and to see my Mother on Saturday who is dying of cancer. We had to cut our stay with my mother short so we could drive 6 hours back to Melbourne to catch our plane on Sunday."
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was tight."
Cons: "Was sitting next to a drunk guy, but was Ok, he slept most of the way. Police and paramedics met him at arrival. Caused some delays. Not Virgin's fault."

Cons: "Food options on the menu are very limited"
Pros: "Business class seats require improvement"

Cons: "Headrest low for a tall person. Shoulders sort of rested on it. Notconfy"

Cons: "Everything is good."
Pros: "The virgin lounge."
Cons: "Bit more variety."
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: "I called several days in advance to request a gluten free meal, they said they processed the request, but there was not a gluten free meal for me on board. When the crew found out the problem they rummaged in the gallery and came up with a couple snack bars without gluten for me. They were awesome."
Cons: "Requesting a special meal in the time frame required and then it not being on board was really heard with Celiac's."
Cons: "I really appreciate very comfort seat more legs room than other aircraft and crew member very helpful And regarding food it’s just ok, rest is find"
Cons: "The flight was fine but it was 4 hours behind schedule."
Pros: "Yes excellent!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "despite being an international flight, there was no charging station in the gate or on the plane the food was subpar to competing airlines that fly the same route serious lack of entertainment options again despite being an international flight"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Delayed almost an hour. Landed and had to wait in another queue to get off the plane. Been waiting 15 minutes on the runway. This is really ruining the only holiday weekend I get for months."
Pros: "Food was super tasty and we were well looked after with refreshments"
Cons: "Lost one of our bags on the connecting flight. One of our bags were left at Sydney Airport and didn't get to us until 4 days later. Lucky we had travel insurance."
Pros: "The actual flight on Virgin Australia was great! The comfort level for economy was especially surprising and very nice."
Cons: "The transfer in between flights was very hectic and they couldn't find my ticket on my Delta transfer. This happened because they e-mailed the week before trying to change my itinerary but then clearly didn't let Delta know so there was definitely confusion and I missed my original transfer. That aspect was frustrating, but the flight itself was LOVELY."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Cons: "Crew asking borderline rude questions, e.g., didn’t you hear..."
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: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure due to headwinds for incoming aircraft"
Pros: "Take off was smooth"
Pros: "Aircraft seating Good notification of possible delay"
Cons: "Crew Long it at bag drop Checked website about delay, said it was on time."
Pros: "Quick flight and great food"
Cons: "Meal on board was probably the worst I’ve ever had on any airline, including the very cheap Asian ones. Virgin has set a new low in customer service"
Cons: "No food or entertainment provided as part of cost. When compared with service initially provided it's hugely disappointing. No fault of the crew of course. C'est la vie."
Pros: "Nice ppl"
Cons: "Nothing it was great!"
Pros: "Love economy X on VA!! MCY is awesome to fly out of. Small and easy"
Pros: "Nice smooth fligj t staff were very nice"
Cons: "The ground crew not their to get us off the plane so we had to wait for them."
Pros: "Exit row seat"
Cons: "Thieving bastards charging $230 because i made a mistake doing the booking and then they lost my bloody suitcase. !!!!! ."
Pros: "Flight on time and all that is expected for a short flight."
Cons: "Automatic ticketing for the baggage drop was not working and signed as such by the airport staff (i.e. so they were aware of the malfunction). I had to wait around to for an hour before the counter opened and one could check bags the old way which meant I (& everyone else on the flight) had to stand around with luggage. If the auto machines are not working surely one desk could have been provided for luggage drop-off."
Cons: "That the flight didn't wait 15 minutes for me to get on it."
Cons: "Very small amount of food! The chair was not comfortable. Small space to move . Qantas have more space ."
Pros: "Crew is always lovely"
Cons: "The delay and then needing to fly low and take longer to reach destination But I’m saying that I understand it was unavoidable and necessary Just an inconvenience"
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "This was the only airline you had to pay for a soft drink."
Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"
Cons: "Loved every bit"
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant enough"
Pros: "It was ok."
Pros: "Quick and efficient loading process"
Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."
Pros: "My Mum has mild dementia and was going to Sydney from Maroochydore to visit family. From check in at MCY to arrival back at MCY the staff looked after her very well. She needed assistance boarding and disembarking and they were very helpful and courteous and that's why I choose Virgin over the other airline that flies the same route."
Cons: "Terrible take off and landing. No screen on seat back. Crew handling of problems not good. Ground crew not ready. No advice of 25 min late arrival. Worst flight by Virgin ever."
