No blankets were provided, the cabin was cold. Headsets were for rent. Really ? The selection for food to buy is poor.

It was a nice ride, arrived a hour sooner than expected. It was a very nice and clean plane.

Seats were small, made it hard to sleep. Not much selection on the TV.

I like being able to order on screen or not. I can eat if I’m hungry or just watch movies if I’m not.

Some people still bring “carry-ons” that are much too large. Forcing the Later boarders to have to check their legitimate sized carry-ons. I don’t think this is fair.

Worst experience ever.

While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again.

Friendly, helpful, kind, confident and easy going flight attendants really made this flight stand out. The seats in economy were comfy and new; the touch screen Tvs were updated and functioned properly. The snacks were healthier. Way to go, Delta! Keep it up!

Security line at JFK is awful. They only let expedited boarders through, and didn't process other lines for 30 minutes. Many people missed their flights. Even worse, a free screener was standing there, but didn't want to work. Only after many people complained did he start processing our line. And then the TVs on our airplane were broken.

The staff was rude and so incredibly unpleasant to every passenger they came into contact with. In fact I over heard them multiple times connecting with each other on incidents with other passengers, so unprofessional. it's the holiday season and there was such a lack of cheer. Flying is more of a chore than a luxury particularly when having to interact with any flight attendant these days, which is unfortunate.

LAX
JFK
OK 4.6

It is pretty ridiculous that airlines get away with treating cross-country flights as if they were 2 hours long. While “domestic”, they are long and often overnight. Passengers should get the same amenities as trans-Atlantic flights: pillow, blanket, and a meal. These rules should be based on flight duration, not destination.
