Quick boarding, when it did eventually happen, almost 45 minutes late, due to late arrival of incoming flight.
I didn't like arriving at a different terminal and then having to walk through long corridors for nearly 10 minutes.
I didn't like having to wait over 40 minutes for my baggage in a hall where the lights kept being turned off and on.
I didn't like that there was no official there to apologise and offer some compensation, even in the way of a coffee voucher.
I didn't like the fact that the luggage customer service guy couldn't get anyone in loading to answer his call, and that his only option then was to fill out a report. Not really much help to the guy whose wheelchair had so far failed to materialise.
I didn't like the total lack of explanation or apology when it became clear that our luggage had seemingly been loaded on a later flight and that we were waiting for that plane to land.
I didn't like that there are about 10 seats in the entire baggage hall, totally inadequate when a flightfull of people is waiting.
Finally, I didn't like that it took 80 from the plane landing to my leaving the car park.
It wasn't clear that we would need to pay to check our luggage, especially since every international flight I have ever been on allows you a checked bag at no cost. When we got to the airport it cost us $130 each to check our bag which we were told it would have been around $50 if we had done it online ahead of time (if we knew). $130 per bag is excessive for checked luggage and we were extremely frustrated and disappointed. I like to fly Virgin when I can due to comfort but that experience left much to be desired.
