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!!!"
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: "You were rewarded at check-in if you had checked-in online. On-liners had their own line and no-one was in it! Also passport control & security were very streamlined...much better than NA or Europe."
Cons: "At least the coffee & water were free!"
Pros: "Clean uniforms. Young staff."
Cons: "Price did not include luggage at all. Paid over $200 for luggage and no offer to assist disabled (I had open surgery two months prior). So told to check in all bags with their inflated prices."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "We were stuck in the tarmac for two hours"
Pros: "The staff were nice but you made me pay almost as much as my ticket cost to change 3 letters on my name"
Cons: "Paying so much for a name change"
Pros: "Nothing !!!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 12 hours!!!!!! Baggage lost!!!! Entertainment system broken!!! Air con on plane warm and very stuffy on flight!!! Virgin is ruining my holiday!!! I will never fly with them again!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "This airline sucks!!!!!!!!!!!! I will never fly them again!!!! 12 hr delay then they lost my bag!!!! Virgin you Ruined my trip!!! Then the entertainment system was broken and the air con was hot, the stuffiest flight of my life!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff at check in really tried to help my family."
Cons: "The ticketing and upgrading of my families tickets wasn't possible apparently. Also baggages without a baggage allowance was very expensive."
Pros: "The ride on the plane was all good"
Cons: "I didn’t like that when I purchased the tickets it gave me no option to add bags to my ticket. My itinerary that was emailed to me didn’t even say anything about paying for the bags before I got there. I got a huge shock when I was first in line and I was told I would have to pay 370 dollars for both my bags. I was livid and quite frankly don’t want to fly or book with virgin ever again. That couldn’t even help me out with anything so overall I’m upset and will never fly with you Virgin. I will also let it be known about this. I’m just a young traveler traveling for education and I get stuck with this bill to where I shouldn’t even go because I spent so much money just for my bags :("
Cons: "Long queue in the toilet"
Pros: "the seating was amazing had enough space to spread my legs out and service was amazing."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "All food had to be purchased and there was no WiFi"
Pros: "Crew friendly Plane half full"
Cons: "Left 10mins late Crew forgot to serve us drinks Poor choices NO choices for those with allergies Person being sick and grumpy woman in front didn’t help travelling with very tired & active five year old at 10pm"
Pros: "It was timely"
Cons: "Not that clean as I had a dirty tissue in the seat pocket and I had a greasy window - not the best"
Pros: "It got me there."
Cons: "In regards to the flight: you have to download the VA app to get any entertainment on your own personal device and they do not have powerpoints on the plane to charge your device and the seats are very tight and at an uncomfortable pitch. Otherwise: The baggage situation is out of control. I've never had an international flight that didn't include a checked bag and did not even give you the option to add a checked bag when you are checking in. I booked my flight through Kayak which actually booked through BYOjet--whom you should avoid at all costs. With this booking I never got asked about my baggage requirements or had the option to add baggage--so when I went to check-in on Virgin Australia I was surprised that nothing was included and I needed to add it by calling VA. I called VA and they said they cannot add it over the phone and that I need to do it at the airport at the cost of $130 (!!!!) if plane had the load capacity available (!!!!) and to maybe give my booking agency a call to see if they could help. BYOjet had me on hold for 15 minutes before I gave up and e-mailed (they didn't respond) and I eventually got a hold of them on the phone a couple of hours later--they could not provide any assistance in this situation and they do not have the capacity to ask about baggage needs during online booking (seriously, get a new web developer in that case). In short--do not book through BYOjet and avoid Virgin Australia if you want a pleasant check-in and flight experience."
Cons: "I don’t think it’s acceptable to not give any food on a 6 hour flight. Also to pay for food we need to wait for the cart. I sat hungry for awhile."
Cons: "I missed my plane.so i lost money.but you wouldn't care you made money..sad"
Pros: "The crew - smiling, friendly and seemed to like their jobs"
Cons: "Food - meusli bar again!"
Cons: "45 minutes queuing for a bag drop is not good enough - plenty of spare check-in desks just not enough staff"
Pros: "Comfortable. Enough leg room."
Cons: "Our departure time kept changing every 10 mins. If we had known, we could have stayed/roamed around town for an extra couple of hours."
Pros: "several options for lunch, new terminal in perth, friendly crew, comfortable chair, good entertainment selection, on time"
Pros: "Professionalism. Check--in online was smooth. Boarding smooth. In flight services good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no announcement until the last min as to why. Extremely frustrating when no information is passed on to passengers."
Cons: "The flight was diverted (with no explanation or warning) which resulted in more than an hours delay!"
Cons: "Didn't clearly mention to me that I have to buy extra ticket for my luggage. It is a cheap plane, but the expense actually is not cheap."
Pros: "Crews are always nice on Virgin, had priority seating which was really nice given my status is with a partner airline"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and then over an hour late into destination so was late for work and an important meeting missed. The flight was full of very smelly passengers. I understand this is not something the airline can manage but here should be standards for boarding passengers. It is difficult situation I realise, but I was across the isle from a person with incredibly poor personal hygiene and the smell was almost unbearable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, meals were decent. Very nice and wide selection of in flight entertainment options."
Cons: "staff member on microphone spoke too quickly to understand clearly"
Pros: "The plane arrived safely and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Specifically booked a flight that included luggage and then charged at the airport to check luggage. No savings here - more expensive than booking directly with the airline."
Cons: "Nasty surprise at the cost of an extra checked bag - $130 - the airline should be more up front and honest about the cost and option to pay less in advance. Otherwise service and crew average."
Pros: "relationship with Delta - sky team so preference on seating"
Cons: "Minimal food/beverage service for an international flight"
