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: Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late.

Cons: I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time.

Good 6.0

Cons: It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that

Excellent 8.5

Pros: The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay.

Cons: Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable.

LAX
Okay 4.3

Okay 5.3

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

Good 7.2

Pros: All the basics were good- comfort, service, and the flight itself.

Cons: The fight was significantly delayed due to weather, which is not their fault, but they did not update us or the departure time toward the end, which they clearly knew and didn't communicate that it would be further delayed. They forgot cups for tea and coffee, so we only had water or juice.

Excellent 8.4

Pros: Seat spacing decent by comparison to other carriers. Good drink selection. Offered regularly.

Cons: Snack was good but small for a 4 hour flight. Pleat of drinks offered.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: They ran out of sandwiches after only servicing 1/4 of the plane, and they are the only substantial pieces of food to buy for dinner! I was starving.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Food and crew!

Cons: The moment they gave out the ice cream it broke in half and began melting. Its hard to eat in the dark and turning on the light with a sleeping neighbor is no fun. Not the best choice to provide it as a popsicle... maybe a cup would be best.

Good 6.8

Pros: Crew were very attentive and polite. Better than Singapore or Air NZ.

Cons: Self check in was chaos. Labeling suitcases was difficult to do yourself and many needed help. If you didn't follow instructions to the letter the auto reader didn't work. Many were very frustrated including Virgin staff who were clearly run off their feet trying to cope. Scrap the system .

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in NZD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
