“First time experience”
Review of Virgin Australia


Reviewed 19 October 2018

First time flew Virgin Australia to Australia, normally the other two main carriers. Booked economy and paid extra for the extra legroom. Immediately on getting to my seat, member of crew was helpful, explained I could have my meal/drinks when I wanted and much better head phones. Seats as good as other carriers. Basically very friendly and helpful. Good service too.
Same on return light from Sydney to HK

Recently flew on VA in The Business. Let me tell you this is the most logically planned and laid out seat. Comfort is right up there too.. I flew from Sydney to Hong Kong, great in flight service, wonderful food and the inservice entertainment was exceptional. The wonderful India (cabin crew member) was great, welcoming passengers, assisting and ensuring that they had a great flight. This seat is worth every dollar and if you have not tried it then I would suggest you place it on your to do list. Thanks VA looking forward to my next flight in the business.

Premium economy was worth it. Extra leg room, great headsets. I love this airline. Excellent food and plenty of it. Lovely, friendly service from the flight attendants; nothing was too much trouble.
