No pillows provided. Crew very friendly

It was a very comfortable journey. Everything was good and should be maintained

Pros: "Crews were great. Seats space could be better ... overall caring & attentiveness of crew members make a lot of difference."
Cons: "Food! 40 years ago Singapore Airlines was second to none in my book! Now I feel like I was away somewhere and Singapore Airlines has changed dramatically....Must be a lot of moving pieces have changed that I was wondering again during my journey whether I was really flying Singapore Airlines..."
Cons: "Rather long wait at business check-in, friendliness there ok, on board service slow with the champagne, old aircraft with old configuration of seats, nothing really bad, but it's not like this that you win an airline of the year award!"
Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew miss my drink"
Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"
Cons: "I think the food - I dont know exactly what, because we're on a plane - but I think it could be a bit more appealing? More greens, colors? Not sure, but it was okay."
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
Pros: "Flight was full but crew was attentive and very pleasant. Star Alliance Lounge at LAX had a good variety of food and drinks - Asian, western, small bites, snacks; red, white, bubbly and even a bartender who'll mix up cocktails. I love flying SQ."

Cons: "Very cramped. Worst leg of the journey"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans.

Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"
Cons: "Very nice services"
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had.

Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "trivia was fun"
Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Cons: "Nothing#"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Cons: "No free movies"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, arrived on time - run of the mill stuff for Air NZ. Crew very good as per normal"

Pros: "The crew was great and the Hawaiian fruit drinks were a great introduction to Hawaii."
Cons: "The check in, the baggage drop off and pickup were very confusing and it made it a little stressful having to change flights. Boarding passes are also difficult to obtain through other airlines."

Cons: "Friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks"
Cons: "No plug in"
Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."
Pros: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Cons: "nothing!"
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"

Cons: "No issues. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

Cons: "Long distance from arrival gate to departure gate"
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."

Pros: "Smoothe flight"
Cons: "1/2 hour late to depart"
Pros: "Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!!!! Flight Crew was very friendly, helpful, and always smiling."
Pros: "All flights were on time and all worked well. The booking of the flight via kayak and payment via vayama was a week long process that involved lots of calls to their customer service which couldn't help their poor website and in the process the flight price rose 3 times, so next time, I'll better book directly with Lufthansa and save some nightmares."
Cons: "Full plane, no options to spread out."
Pros: "Legeoom"
Pros: "I was most impressed with the lovely flight attendants who were friendly and very kind and caring with my young adult daughter who has flying anxiety. They were so fantastic and really made a difference to her flight."

Pros: "aisle seat"
Cons: "no food...not even orange juice."

Cons: "Great seats in Premium Economy, although not all the functions seemed to be working! Crew were very helpful but the one in my area was very slow with the main meal - had to wait 90mins after we took off before I got my food"

Airport staff are rued and unhelpful. On a 9 hour flight only one drinks service was done.

Cons: "Food was not enough and it was served after very long hours."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment is good."
Cons: "Crew is insulting passengers and really bad attitude"
Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"
Pros: "The overall experience was good."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good food."
Pros: "Of the enormous amount of entertainment available, even I found something to keep me occupied."
Cons: "Perhaps boarding."
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Emirates handling of the crisis was good.they delivered snacks at the boarding gate. Considerate ground staff kept us informed and profusely apologetic."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "I had really high expectations for this trip but they were unmet. The service was indifferent. The chair wasnuncomfortable. The aisle was super narrow. I was bumped the entire flight. I didn’t like the food. And it was obvious by the end of the trip the staff was just done. Leaving the plane I passed several attendants and they did not say anything. They didn’t thank me for my business. They did t say goodbye or encourage me to come again — they were oblivious and no caring."
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding process"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly"
Pros: "Booked a window seat and luckily the middle seat wasn’t taken. I was able to fade in and out of sleep ... much needed!"
Cons: "Wish I could afford to upgrade for a proper sleep!"
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful, food goood !"
Cons: "More you to stretch out"
Pros: "The planes are comfortable, the entertainment has plenty of options and plugs for your chargers if you want to use your own. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Emirates understands service. We had one cabin crew (on our flight to New York) named Amor who was was “on it” - attentive, helpful...everything you want on a long-haul flight!"
Cons: "This isn’t Emirates’s fault, but it took over 45 minutes (after we had come through passport control) for the bags from our flight to come out and we almost missed our train into Milan. But that is the fault of Malpensa airport."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Spacious for the kid to walk"
Cons: "For this flight boarding was smooth as my previous flight was late and an Emirates employee ran us through security and to this flight on time. For the people reading this review who might think my kid would have been messy or cranky on the flight so we were treated this way, that was not the case, she not even cried once or made a mess. Same as my previous flight with crew, Crew were so late in responses, my wife actually walked to their place 2 times to get milk for the baby. Also she was not served food at all when they served breakfast. We requested Hindu meal and I was served hindu meal and she was missed and when they served lunch she was told she has not requested prior to the flight and can only be served a regular meal, which she gladly accepted. Kid was not served any food again, so we gave her solid from our meal. When we requested some food for the baby she was given a banana baby food(Kid did not even eat it). Taste of the food was edible(Not great). Overall do not fly emirates with a kid"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Everything was well done! Great customer service."
Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Attentive crew (Busines cabin was near empty). Highlights the deficit caused by large occupancy A380 Business cabin. A380 business cabin has been economy classed to within an inch of its life, too few crew and those that are on duty disorganised and stressed. 777 crew ratio was 3 crew to 1 pax :)"
Cons: "Engine noise. Boarding in Dubai was a farce as called to gate even though aircraft was severely delayed inbound. Surly lounge staff didn’t help. Business Class gate desk ‘closed’ even though staffed as person was busy on the phone. Weird 2 - 3 - 2 layout means window and centre seats have to clamber over reclined neighbours. Seat width better than A380 and also less tomb like when reclined to nearly flat bed."
Pros: "Crew members were great. Was on time and early."
Cons: "1. Seats seemed tighter than I'm used to. 3-4-3 setup from ATH to EWR. I flew it today. 2. Food: standard. Not ethnic which I was expecting for a Dubai airline. 3. Color scheme: overhead lighting was your yellow incandescent light bulb color. Made the interior feel dated. However the ceilings had tiny lines like stars. This was a nice touch."
Pros: "Overall experiance."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "The time to board and arrival was on time"
Cons: "They didn't have mango juice"

Cons: "Other than the delay in boarding, which resulted in a bit of chaos, everything went very well."
Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."
Pros: "The staff, food, everything! Best flight and airline ever"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."
Pros: "Big screen"
Cons: "I and my friend booked together but we had to sit separate. All round trip. What the hell?"

Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew can be more helpful"
Pros: "Entertainment, movies"
Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Nothing so far"
Pros: "Roomy seats, friendly, attentive attendants, food vouchers in Dubai"
Cons: "Boarding was always late and a bit crowded"
Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Good entertainment, tasty food, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Good food and snacks. Great boarding and off boarding experience. Appreciated the help by Qantas ground crew who helped me with my wheelchair in Sydney."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable economy seating. Crew came by infrequently but were attentive when they came."
Cons: "on line check in more difficult than others"
Pros: "This flight was pretty roomy since I had a whole row to myself."
Cons: "When I checked in there were 2 employees behind the counter ignoring the line of people dropping off checked bags and 1 employee actually working to take checked bags. This is the third time in a row that this has happened on a Qantas flight for me."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"
Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Pros: "Quick!"
Cons: "We sprinted to make our connecting flight - bags didn't make it. Got woken up at 2am to collect them after a whole day traveling."
Pros: "Exit row seat. Lovely aircraft and cabin crew."
Pros: "Twice this trip, 2 qantas staff rectified our seating allocation so we could sit together as a family and i didn't even have to ask. The staff are always so pleasant and engaging."
Cons: "A mishap when allocating seats online, when i chose seats for us online (my fault i left it too late) there weren't any together...but the staff rectified this..."
Pros: "Friendly flight staff"
Cons: "Cramped conditions in economy but you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."
Pros: "Flight left on time, arrived 20 mins ahead of time. And great landing"
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Pros: "Staff of Quantas was helpful getting us on the plane after Emerites suspended our tickets We had to pay for a second set of tickets at a higher price on the day of our flight Lucky we made the flight"
Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"
Pros: "Speed of flight was excellent. Overheard storage was good."
Cons: "Seats impossible to sleep on as they don’t recline enough to stop head from falling forward. Wings on headrest too small."
Pros: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."
Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."
Pros: "I like ice cream (TipTop icecream). It was okay and much better then meal. The dark chocolate after meal was also good."
Cons: "I didn't like food in flight. I don't eat beef and the other option was not tasteful."
Pros: "Ok"
Pros: "Looking out the window."
Cons: "Flight changed from an A330 to a B737 perhaps as Resukt if the public holiday"
Pros: "Our flight with qantas was fantastic. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Premium economy makes a difference on a 15 he flight."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "when my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system was ancient, with small screens, loose sockets for headphones, flaky performance. Only the content was decent (not good). They announce boarding sequence and then fail to honor/enforce it, allowing a free for all."
Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Pros: "Smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "The egg salad sandwich."
Pros: "Service always great. Smooth lift off and landing. Just feels so safe. I trust Qantas 100%."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "I did not at all like the fact that the Qantas supplied headphones did not come with an adaptor to convert my pwn noise cancelling earphones to stereo sound."
Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"
Pros: "Almost 17h is a LOOOONG flight, so it could have been awful... Thankfully it was not crowded, though, so I had a centre row to myself! Actually managed to get more than 4h of sleep. Loved the SkyCam, especially since we followed the full moon all the way."
Pros: "I paid for an extra legroom seat - really makes a difference to getting some sleep on the two overnight legs of QF2, but you might want to bring your own blindfold and slippersocks as these are not provided in Economy."
Cons: "Gluten-free food in particular needn't be milk/lactose or meat free, and needn't be based around those gluten-free breads (Qantas GF bread was better than some others but still not great). There are good gluten free noodles, and most of the NORMAL meals would be find as long as gratuitous adding of wheat products to sauces was avoided (there is no excuse for soysauce or cornflour containing gluten - wheat and flour are additives that should not be present in ANY product that isn't specifically a wheat product). If the Asian meals, curry and rice, etc. were made with care they would be GF and many (Australian) restaurants offer GF variants of their meals. Still don't understand why they didn't give me real butter or real milk... Should have announced explicitly that we needed to pick up and clear and recheck baggage (on same tag) before our domestic flight."
Pros: "Food off the menu was excellent. Tummy wasn't feeling well so I liked having carb-free options. The Asian salad for dinner and fruit platter for brekkie went down well."
Cons: "Have always booked tickets and flown with my partner. Set alarm to check-in online exactly 24hrs prior to departure as usual and found my partner and I seated in different seats with no available seats to switch. How can this be on an aircraft this big? Thought we might be able to fix it at the counter next day, we headed to the airport early by 3hrs to sort it out. Maybe it was the end of a long day, our flight was close to midnight... Check-in lady was lovely and all smiles but it went downhill from here... No option to sit together and no offer of an upgrade at the counter or at boarding (we didn't ask). Duty-free collection instructions weren't clear prior to boarding ("board as you will and pick up after") and during boarding the staff member seemed over it ("pick up after boarding"). Wouldn't it be easier to advise over the PA so we don't have to ask or if we have to ask explain something along the lines of "you can collect your duty free from the cart after you scan you ticket, prior to boarding the aircraft". The worst part of our experience was the aircraft itself. The plane was obviously very old and tired. My partner's seat kept reclining and wouldn't stay upright (we didn't complain). Rows were so close together that you could smell the person in front's hair when they reclined their chair fully (which they did for the entirety of the flight) and your eyes feel cross-eyed it was so close. The entertainment system was old - we couldn't choose when to watch our movies and as movies aren't the same duration we missed out on a lot of the movies we did want to watch. Finally the selection of movies could've made up for this downfall but it was incredibly limited in selection for a long haul flight. Not sure if it was us but the flight crew also seemed tired and over it too. Luckily we had sleeping pills so we slept through much of the flight but what we did experience wasn't good at all. V disappointed."
Cons: "I'm a qantas frequent flyer and have always been loyal. But next trip, I will try a different carrier (Etihad, Emirates even Singapore). Standards have slipped, customer care is lacking. I heard this from people I was sitting with as well, so not just my opinion."
Pros: "The food was great along with the movies. Everything went smoothly and made it home no problems."
Pros: "fewer rows of seats in my section upstairs quiet - no children darkness for the overnight flight"
Cons: "would have preferred more foreign movies - with English subtitles - for the more discerning movie watcher - most movies were populist rubbish"
Pros: "Flgiht attendants and airline presentation and friendliness"
Cons: "The last time i flew was in 1999 when i was single and traveling NZ and Australia. This time i was taking my family. I had boasted to my fam that Quantas (was famous in my memory) as having economy seats that felt more like other airlines Business Seats. My kids were eager to experience the "Quantas" seats. I was severely dissapointed to find that your economy seats, now, are even smaller than the Chinese seats we regularly fly (we are in our 5th year of ex-pat assignment in China). You should have seen the look on my kids faces. Evidently, i must have "talked Quantas up too much", because there was a great deal of dissapointment. We will travel back to NZ and Aus., this fall, but will no longer prioritize Quantas as our airline of choise. I guess times change, and a little bit of nastalgia lost.... :("
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "crew were nasty Ran down aisle with without stopping I had to call her back twice"
Pros: "Poor food. Not as good as domestic."
Cons: "Helpful and aware."
Pros: "This was an Emirates flight. Codeshare means you get attentive staff and decent food. Always happy to be on a Qantas codeshare partner instead of the Qantas planes. The gap from Emirates back to Qantas is vast."
Cons: "seats are very tight on this plane food was confusing - had a $10 voucher - we didn't understand"
Pros: "The flight was great had a smooth transition from plane to terminal"
Cons: "Food was very ordinary"
Cons: "The headphone jack in my seat was broken - the crew gave me a new headset, but it didn't do anything. It was difficult to get them to take me seriously. Also, fix the website. This is the second time I have not been able to book my seat correctly."
Pros: "Movie selection pretty good"
Cons: "Terminal at LAX only allowed use of Admiral Club not Qantas lounge LAX international. 5 hr layover. No food. Poor facilities. 2 drink voucher. Not up to Qantas standard by a long shot. More importantly seats economy on American Airlines flight fro LAX to SYD very narrow and incredibly uncomfortable. Unable to rest comfortably to any degree or be able to have a meal when seat in front reclined and i am not a big guy. I fly often for work and also pay for Qantas club but this experience is making me think very differently about booking flights according to what the codeshare airline is. Dissapointed and not what I expect the standard of a Qantas codeshare airline to be."
Pros: "The Qantas service is generally good, and they do acknowledge Platinum members. Also the boarding delay was well advised."
Cons: "More the Dubai airport side, and the fact that the loung boarding arrangements are not intuitive."
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: "The crew did well checking up on everyone regularly and the plane was comfortable."
Cons: "The meal was not very good. I would have really appreciated a small snack or desert also. The crew also seemed easily irritated at times."
Pros: "Take off was smooth"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Crew was rude and discriminatory with Passports, for 18 hours stay layover I had to sit in chairs,. Not hotel or Lounge provided. Which is against international laws."
Pros: "Flight crew"
Pros: "Quick, efficient, all you want and need for a flight to Melbourne."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed initially because of a cracked window, was an hour late before it was communicated. Then on a new aircraft, forced to return to the gate when cabin crew identified a vacuum cleaner part as a suspicious item. All told 2hrs 15 mins late."
Pros: "On time and arrived 5 minutes early. Newer 737 plane so seats didn't have that worn look and feel"
Cons: "Only had slices of apple or energy ball."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Good movies. Food was good. Flight was good."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
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: "The coke"
Cons: "Not bloody much. I'm passed I'm not with my wife now"
Pros: "It wasn’t outstanding but no major problems Whereas the boarding process for the flight from Melbourne to LAX was poor 3 and half hour delay on tarmac no air flow Only to have a person disembark as well further delay ( dont blame her) The staff were ok but their hollow reassurances about support that would be given on the ground in LAX because of the delays were just that Told virgin staff would be on hand to assist TOTALLY UNTRUE yes they we’re there but didNOTHING to assist with ongoing flight delays"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Friendly staff willing to make sure that trip was comfortable"
Cons: "A broader range of movies on Virgin Entertainment"
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: "clean planes, easy security, good boarding."
Cons: "flight was delayed - we sat on tarmac with doors"
Pros: "staff were wonderful!"
Cons: "not enough vegetarian meals brought on board for everyone in business class who wants one.... disgraceful for what it costs"
Cons: "didnt send baggage as claimed the plain was overweight and didnt inform us until we contacted there agent to try to find the bags and we have received no compensation. they informed us that this is normal on their flights and they do not inform passengers concerned"
Pros: "Had a window seat with great views of the countryside- 2 hours seemed to pass quickly and the crew were good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff were fantastic"
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "Quick boarding efficient on time smooth 'sailing'. No luggage so I was on the bus 5 minutes after the flight landed"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable the pads around the neck push my head forward. Would be great to have better support for the back making the seat shaper like an L. Tall person problem."
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: "On time. Friendly crew. Smooth landing. All you can ask."
Cons: "Checking in took a while longer than expected. But I was still very happy with the service."
Cons: "30 minutes delayed due to errors in paperwork."
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 was a good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "I was offered a seat near an exit door on the proviso I would help people in an emergency. I assumed this was because I am about 2 metres tall with my shoes on i.e. bit hard not to notice when I am at the counter. I actually got given a seat in Row 25 on an Airbus 321, which is the row in front of the spacious row 26, and row 25 has less kneeroom than the ordinary rows. Uncomfortable trip"
Pros: "Better departure gate, more room onboard, so close to the baggage claim and passenger pickup after landing. I fly to Melbourne often, and generally with other airlines....virgin was like a treat."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Virgin staff were great"
Pros: "Economy is most often how I connect. Certainty felt a little more upgraded this flight"
Cons: "Efficiency, schedule retained, in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The flights left on time"
Cons: "We will pay extra to fly on an airline with better customer service and assistance for check in, in future. We had a pusher and two little kids plus a baby so having to self check in from the Gold Coast was a nightmare. We only flew virgin to get a direct flight but will change our holiday destination to fly Qantas in future"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Left late."
Pros: "Flight was on time, landed early, service was good."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Excellent cabin attendance ratiio to passengers."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off. Was also told the flight was being held, then when I arrived at the desk was told my bags wouldn't make it on the plane."
Pros: "I was very pleased and will continue to book with you."
Cons: "The PRICE!!!! with my favourite airline"
Pros: "simple and not fussy. I love priority boarding"
Cons: "can never get enough air when stuck on the tarmac. those overhead vents do very little"
Pros: "Was quick and painless"
Cons: "That we had to go via Sydney wish they were direct to Melbourne"
Pros: "Nil complaints"
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: "The flight per se was fine"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight and rescheduled us for four hours later midnight before our flight, and as we were on vacation we lost a half day in the airport."
Pros: "Very courteous steward."
Cons: "Small food servings"
Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."
Pros: "Excellent crew & service"
Cons: "Boarding started (& almost finished) before boarding time, sounds silly but ended up being a little stressful"
Pros: "Prompt take off after seeing the jetstar flights around us being delayed"
