“Left on time”
Review of Virgin Australia


Reviewed 10 March 2020

I was flying back to Perth after spending time in Melbourne, despite airlines having a history of departing late this flight departed on time and arrived in Perth early which meant that I got home earlier, it was a 737 which didn't have any in flight entertainment so if you are travelling on this plane make sure you bring your own device but I had some people sitting next to me who talked with me the whole flight, if you are lucky enough to get an A 330 in flight entertainment is provided

VAustralia (or Virgin Australia as we know it) is an excellent airline. Business Class is the only way to travel on a long journey. The service is fantastic and the flatbed seats are very comfortable. As usual you can do with a little more storage space and their entertainment system (the movie selection) needs to be kept up to date. The movie choice was not very good. However if you are happy with the fact that you just want to sleep and get to your destination then this is the airline for you. The airline staff could not be more accomodating and the food is incredible. Its the small things that matter, the hot towels, the warm nuts, the endless comforts are top notch. The lounge bar (onboard) is fantastic however if you get some loud passengers at the bar this can be disturbing. If you only mention it to the staff they will get them to settle down. Qantas was good but far more expensive and the seating was as hard as a rock which then makes it hard to sleep. The lounge access at the airport was amazing with everything you could ever ask for including hot showers. Try VAustralia as you will never again fly any other airline to Australia.

Australian domestic flights need to be more competitive especially long haul flights Perth to anywhere on East coast is expensive and most flights are full so the demand is there

Comfortable seats, good food, flight attendants understaffed and often unseen. Bar unattended for hours at a time.
