Pros: "Amazing crew, excellent drinks and decent food. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Very friendly crew. We boarded about an hour before so we were ready to go well before time."
Cons: "The economy seats are not that comfortable and the screen for entertainment is sometimes difficult to use."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"

Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"

Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."

Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Poor drink selection. Food mediocre. I felt like I was in the living room of the Beverley Hillbillies. Loud people, dressed like slobs. No manners"

Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"

Pros: "2 bags each 23 kilogram each total 46"
Cons: "Coffee. I don't know what it was but the worst coffee I have ever had and I tried it 3 times"

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Cons: "These seats are small"

Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."

Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"

Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."

Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"

Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"

Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("

Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"

Pros: "Very courteous and professional crews. Clean and comfortable plane. Pilots handled delay and weather superbly. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "Dinner was great but could have used more snacks. Breakfast was ok. Movies were dated but okay."

Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."

Pros: "First off,the staff is awesome. From the check in people to the flight attendants .... The entertainment was up to date and the safety video was awesome.. Great conditions for economy class.good leg room...I give them a 5 star rating ... I only wish they would do more flights to other countries overseas ..."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like"

Cons: "Boarding process was unorganized. Food was mediocre compared to emirates. Video monitor was poorly designed and limited options on movies and languages. Crew is just average compared to other airlines Online checkin and seating choices were difficult to do and not user friendly"

Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Pros: "Food was very good crew were pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very hard"

Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"

Pros: "Very good on board services and nice crew"
Cons: "At boarding in Atlanta, they only checked in 1 of my 3 luggages to my final destination, the 2 others are lost..."

Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Food was not good, they served snacks and did not serve drinks with snacks. Seats were tight"

Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."

Pros: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."

Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."

Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"

Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."

Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."

Pros: "Wasn't overcrowded, the food and service were great"
Cons: "They ran out of beer!"

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Pros: "a very good experience Felt as if the crew cared"
