Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."
Pros: "Business class on the 737 is somewhat basic compared to Virgin Australia's A330, but you still get the same great service, and the food is terrific."
Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "The crew were informative and friendly and attentive. We fly often and the food on this flight was the best we have had in a very long time, and we weren’t even expecting any. Thank you for a great flight Virgin ,"
Cons: "Long walk to the gate but no problem"
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: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Loved the food and ambiance"
Cons: "The on air entertainment was surprisingly low quality"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
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: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Cons: "You charged me for a checked bag. This wasn't made clear when I booked the flight."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"
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"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "The Business - was The Business! Loved it."
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "The speed of boarding, then the frequency of service. Cabin crew were very dedicated. All in all, a very smooth flight. Ps. my first Virgin was called Carole. ;)"
Cons: "The food left a lot to be desired, but apart from my flight on Emirates to Auckland, Airoplne food does tend to be somewhat......mmmm not sure what the word is, but room for improvement describes it."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "Neat plane, good food and service"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was very dark. To bad since there was an ample selection of movies."
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "Very good service, plenty of food, food was pretty good, entertainment system was great and the seats in economy with very comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Food, service, attendant, on-time etc,"
Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"
Cons: "Small aircraft, 2 seats on each side of the aisle, but that’s what you get when you fly short legs now."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Cons: "Flight attendant in First class was visibly frustrated and unfriendly. He was not helping with my simple request for a blanket. Also, the were no food service in first class."
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew was okay. Seat was uncomfortable. Fold down table was broken."
Cons: "Delayed several times. switched to a later flight hoping that flight would not be delayed. That flight was delayed. I had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we took off. Didn’t make it to Chattanooga until almost12 am. hoping to fly delta for next trip to Dominican Rep. but now I’m unsure"
Pros: "The crew. The option of movies! The plane ride."
Cons: "Took 20 min on the run way before deplaning at the gate. Luggage took 15 minutes to come. No entertainment."
Cons: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours."
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Pros: "It was short and fast."
Pros: "Everything went fast & smooth"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "This small craft flight was tight but friendly and comfortable"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Cons: "I dont like that we wasted 3 hours delay in the fiarst fly, makimg us waste more time at los angeles it was a really nightmare"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Pros: "The staff was excellent, and very patient with the customers"
Cons: "Being 6'2", the leg room left a lot to be desired, and I was cramping after approximately 9 hours flight time (flight to Tokyo)."

Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."

Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Small airplane for the route and terrible terminal"
Pros: "Plane got to NY."
Cons: "Plane got to NY an hour late due to a maintenance issue, and we missed a connection because of it. Delta staff very unhelpful regarding connections and rebooking... we got redirected to a wall of phones to call for help."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "The flight was much smoother than our flight out."
Cons: "We bought two tickets at the same time months in advance. However, when we checked in they gave us two seats at completely opposite ends of the plane. My husband was placed in 10B, the first row behind first class and I was placed in 36B, the back row against the wall. We both had middle seats, which means that the people on either side if us were single travelers. Why couldn't one of them be reassigned so that we could have sat together?"
Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."
Cons: "The first 2 hours were so bumpy that I got sick. I was also in the middle seat and was so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep."
Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."
Cons: "For some reason there were 4 really young children seated all in the same area. Kids will be kids, but perhaps spreading them out wouldn’t make one particular area so loud and disturbing. Boarding the plane I a more orderly way would also help."
Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."

Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Pros: "Service and hospitality. On dot service with no major delays."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Cons: "Business class is a rip off. They are economy class seats. They don't recline. No entertainment whatsoever!! Horrible experience."

Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"

Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."
Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was on time, the food was basic, just like drink."
Cons: "Staff didn't ask a lady next to me to sit properly whilst she was almost laying with her shoes very near to my seat. I had to be careful not to clean her shoe soles with my clothes. Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."

Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "The polite stewards The food and drinks given for free."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"
Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."
Pros: "Quick and easy in all aspects"
Pros: "Even though we were a little late boarding and taking off, we still arrived 15 minutes early. The on board snack was pretty good (cheese sandwich) and the coffee was lovely - good quality and just what I needed."
Pros: "Quality of service, personable flight attendants, comfortable seats, decent food quality."
Cons: "Entertainment system is average at best. More current and popular options for music and movies should be included. My system quit working during the flight and did not return to operation."
Pros: "The flight was on time enough that I comfortably got to my connecting flight. It was still late and some other passengers were anxious they wouldn't get theirs. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seats were regular seats with the middle seat unused. The "meal" on this early flight (had to leave the house around 4:30am to get to it) was light. I'm glad I had the time to stop at the business lounge first. I don't recall any entertainment system, which isn't a big issue on this short flight."
Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"
Pros: "Loved the staff, very nice! The food options were good & I appreciated the veggie options. Desert could be optional since I never eat it. Oh & the beverage cart with all the options is the absolute BEST."
Cons: "No noise barriers. I realize people will bring babies on flights, but after 11 straight hours (seriously, 11!) of screaming babies, the whole plane was tired & on edge."
Pros: "I love their pilot and crew members."
Cons: "The lady who are the weighing baggage in Lagos is very rude and need to be removed and others that pass instructions to her. The same baggage I brought from US is the same weight but hostile to removed down all my clothes. The weight used in Nigeria is not acceptable to many people and it can make passenger run from them"
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
Cons: "Space between seats and leg room. Very compact for an international flight."
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"

Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."

Pros: "Everything is alright"

Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Pros: "Onboard crew was friendly. Dinner was good"
Cons: "Cabin was very cold. Not enough legroom compared to orher international carriers. Male flight attendant kept bumping into my husband sitting in aisle seat so he unable to get any sleep. We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"

Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
