Pros: This review is less about the actual flight and more about the lengths to which Virgin Australia went to get us to our destination as quickly as possible. Cyclone Gita made landfall the night before we were supposed to depart from Wellington on through to Phoenix, Arizona. Our first flight was canceled because of the storm, and we used the travel agency to get on the next flight out. Then that flight got significantly delayed, which would cause us to miss our connections. We spent time talking to the booking agents at VA and, although they were helpful, said that they could not rebook subsequent segments as it was all booked together. We decided that we would just get on the delayed flight and then have them rebook us once we got to our destination. However, later that same day I got a call from VA, and they informed me that they had kept us on the delayed flight but re-booked the following segments to get us to our final destination as soon as possible. This involved an overnight stay in Australia, which we not only did not have to pay for, but were also given $50 vouchers (per person) to eat at the hotel restaurant, a cab voucher to get there, and specific instructions about how to catch our next flight. I was quite prepared to have a very hectic journey home, but with their level of service they basically turned a stressful delay into an extra night of vacation. I am very pleased with how they handled our situation, as the problems were weather-related and out of their control.
Pros: I was very late and the gate was closed but the staff helped me make it on time.
Cons: I booked on Emirates and on my way back I flew with Fly Dubai it wasn’t specified in the ticket. There were no pillows, no covers and I was freezing! No entertainment it is a downgrade from Emirates. At least the ticket should have costed less.
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: The food and entertainment was excellent. Thr crew are friendly and luxurious plane comforts make it worth the trip paid for.
Cons: Not enough fresh air, breathing quality was poor before take off. We had fumes from jet gases leaking in through the air conditioning, but once the plane departed the quality improved.
