Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was very efficient and crew was very pleasant and helpful. Seats were reasonable for economy."
Cons: "Meals were very small but tasty. Movie options were random but enough to keep you occupied."
Cons: "Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous"
Cons: "Good overall"
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 was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected."
Cons: "It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity."
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: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."
Cons: "The flight change the gate number immediately so I missed my flight"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"
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."
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
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."
Cons: "Delayed 40mins"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well. Good choices."
Cons: "Food decent, but not enough fluids offered during flight . Was very dehydrated by end."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
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: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
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: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."
Cons: "If the luggage fees were to be included in the price, I would have gladly chosen Emirates for its comfort at that price."
Pros: "Superior comfort, class, and style. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the pilots kept you up to date with flight info and departure/arrival time (and kept the seat belt light off almost the entire trip), the food was delicious and offered throughout, and the entertainment was top notch. Seats were comfortable (we had bulkhead row Space+ and they were worth every cent for the international long haul from LAX-BNE and SYD-LAX) and everyone got a pillow/blanket. We got premium noise-canceling headsets, water, and a little care kit including an eye mask and earplugs and a pen to fill out your travel documents. The overhead bin space was huge and we got two free checked bags of luggage up to 50lbs each (I don't know of that's standard or not, or if it came with Space+ seats). SERIOUSLY the best airline."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. For a long haul flight, Virgin Australia is TOP NOTCH!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Pros: "Flight crew were awesome! I got super sick with Bali belly and the crew did everything in their ability to comfort me."
Cons: "Sitting in the galley vomiting for 6h. Flight was completely packed since flights the day before had been canceled, but a full flight isn't really something you can complain about."
Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
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: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "Westjet crew are always amazing"
Pros: "the flight crew made our flight very comfortable and pleasant. One flight attendant ( didn't spot her name) had such a gentle sense of humour while serving us-it was nice. Flight attendants at times seem like strict teachers - so it was nice to smile and laugh - especially now with such fear of flying due to COVID-19"
Cons: "Boarding process could be a little smoother and less frantic"
Pros: "Average comfort compatible with all airlines"
Cons: "WestJet is a good airline"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "The dreamliner is an amazing plane. I really liked the window tinting feature it has."
Pros: "Very kind. Gave my daughter an extra snack because we had not had a solid meal in a while."
Cons: "Boarding process is never good. Obviously need to board the plane from the back to the front in reverse numerical order."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants. Comfort was great. Nothing really was bad about the flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of...."
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn't delayed got hours while we were stuck on a plane!!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "For a 5hours flight meals should be served onboard"
Pros: "The crew went out of his way to help us!"
Cons: "The landing was the worst I have ever experienced! Must be a student pilot or something! Been traveling for many years and never once vomit! I almost did in this flight! twice!!"
Cons: "More food!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and no on board entertainment"
Pros: "Hmmmm... I got free earbuds. Though movies were “pay per watch” grrr... I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the 67 movie trailers...."
Cons: "The seat hurt, it really should be comfortable if you’re going to sit in it for upwards of 7 hours. FOOOOD... something complimentary to give to your passengers who payed so much for a great trip and are now starving to death in the back seat, chewing on the magazines as nourishment."
Pros: "Friendly staff; A relatively painless check-in and boarding procedure; Flight arrived a bit earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "No power outlet at seat on 4+ hour flight meant dead phone on arrival when used for in-flight entertainment; Now have to pay extra for basic seat selection even after check-in opens at 24-hours prior to departure (I opted not to pay, and got literally the worst seat on the plane... back row, middle seat by the lavatory); Even the for-purchase snacks taste terrible."
Pros: "The crew was polite and prot"
Cons: "It wasn’t free"
Pros: "Flight was only delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Super fast. All on time."
Cons: "I didn't like in a middle seat and being told that in order to move to an aisle seat I would have to pay $13.50. Normally with Westjet it was always free to change seats at Check in. It's frustrating when things change and you only find out at the time of check in rather than at time of booking."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided great service."
Pros: "Flight was on time and WJ does provide quite a lot of leg room on their jets."
Cons: "no refund at all worst outcome"

Pros: "seated in plus, more legroom"
Cons: "30 minute delay boarding/ arrival"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly, super helpful. Wasn't as jam packed as most flights so it was nice to have some extra leg room."
Cons: "No in flight movie or distraction of some sort but was still a very calm quiet flight which is just as good."
Pros: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"

Pros: "reasonably priced ticket for a no-frills short haul flight. no complaints."
Cons: "Slight delay, but not much communications re the incident"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. On time flight."
Cons: "Bathroom was filthy but that's a reflection on the patrons not West jet."
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"
Pros: "On time & pleasant people."
Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."
Cons: "Both departure and return flights delayed by over an hour. All I hear is the same reason over and over again. Figure it out."

Pros: "Smooth flight, food wasn't to bad either"
Cons: "The amount of juice or drink you get could be a bit more"

Pros: "On time, great cabin crew"

Pros: "compliance in the boarding"
Cons: "in general the male flight attendant was very disinterested in resolving nonconformities such as that the light of the chair did not turn on or request for support in completing Customs form and uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Generally flight attendant was nice and efficient. Excellent service and"
Cons: "Food was poor quality. Sometimes water taste like bad tap water. There are very nice crews but some of them are not. Some flight attendant bumped my knee a little when she passed by but didn’t care or noticed."
Pros: "Easy online check in and was able to pay for baggage at the same time. Staff friendly and helpful. Comfortable flight and decent food. A little late taking off but we still arrived at our destination on time."
Pros: "OK service"
Cons: "was not offered a direct flight to Vancouver when it was obvious that I would miss the connecting flight."
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Pros: "Clear and stress free check in."
Cons: "Everything was on point nothing to report."
Cons: "Plane was cramp, no inflight refreshments offered other than beverage. No entertainment available on flight."

Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."

Cons: "Worst experience !!!!"
Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Cons: "Crew did not seem to want to do anything extra. Movies seem to be out of date. Unpopular TV shows. A little cramped seating. I paid for a premium seat, no real difference I could tell."
Cons: "Air Canada did everything wrong except for the actual flying of planes. Repeated delays and cancellations with NO organization or communication to the passengers. I made it to my final destination 24 hours later than original itinerary, almost all of which was spent in airport lines. My bag didn't arrive until 5 days later...on the wrong porch."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Pros: "The upgrade with the food, and the entertainment"
Cons: "This flight and my next connecting one (also Air Canada) were both delayed by 45 minutes each. That's an hour and a half of wasted time. Thankfully, I just assumed there would be a delay so I booked a later connection in advance. The weather was perfect and there was no explanation on either flight as the why we were almost an hour delayed. I'm expected to arrive 2 hours in advance of a flight. Why is it so hard for this airline to be on time?"
Pros: "Flight from STL to YYZ was unremarkable, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to air transportation. Bit of a delay leaving, waiting for de-icing trucks to show up and do their work, but I'm not sure that's Air Canada's fault."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the boarding and de-planing process went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was really cold, and we were told that they couldn't adjust the temperature, but we could have a blanket - at a cost. We have heard from other people who travelled Rouge about how cold their flight was, too. I also didn't realize that there wouldn't be in-flight movies - unless you rented an i-pad, etc. That was a bit disappointing for a 6-hour flight. I think that I would rather have paid a little higher fee for the flight and have some of the things built into the ticket than have to keep paying out money for all the different things."
Pros: "The entertainment on the air Canada app had good selection bjt i couldn't vet it to play after selecting tv, I movie, or podcast. There was no in flight movie to choose from either."
Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant."
Cons: "Entertainment options very poor considering it is a 5 hr flight. Hadn't realized that they actually made planes without a seat back screen these days! Too many people allowed to bring too much hand luggage on board. Significantly delayed the process of getting people seated. Also, anxiety levels of passengers increases when they start to realize they will have nowhere to put their luggage. Not the perfect start to any flight."
Cons: "I know it's a growing practice, but to charge for food is a policy that I think is short-sighted."
Pros: "I loved the whole experience. The food was decent and the flight attendants were great and accommodated me with all my necessities. I also enjoyed the entertainment that was accessible on our personal screens and the entire flight was smooth."
Pros: "People working at the check-in counter in Sydney were friendly"
Cons: "Delayed departure and while I was rebooked for the possibly missed connections already in Sydney it was a premature decision as I would have made the connection in Vancouver. Food on a long flight is important - lousy meals and worst sandwich ever!"
Pros: "Got an upgraded seat without asking for it due to overbooking."
Cons: "Checking was more complicated than necessary. Was asked to use the machine to check in even though I made it clear I wanted to use the counter and there were only a few people waiting. Didn't get to watch a movie as I wasn't told you need to download the apps before getting on the plane."
Cons: "The overall service was poor. One male flight attendant was very rude and disrespectful to two elderly passengers. It was NOT David. Charging $10 for entertainment was is terrible!!! Restrooms were filthy!!!"
Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats seemed to have a little more room. The "red eye" flight was quiet and dark. All in all, pretty good."
Cons: "My movie/tv screen was broken on one flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, no delays"
Cons: "The food was so awful and very unhealthy! No TV for entertainment on our 9 hour international flight was absurd. Lastly, we purchased the tickets together, when we checked in, our seats were not together on both the flight to and from Italy, thankfully other people switched seats with us. When we asked the flight crew at the desk to switch seats, they couldn't both times. We definitely will not be flying Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "The crew was nice, accommodate well. Sit lean back okay, good convenience of charging mobile device. Food was okay. Entertainment good choices."
Cons: "Where do I start? Baggage check in is horrible and long. Wait in line for 1 hr with all counter open. Process just too long and too slow. Unclear of instruction for paying extra baggage. Security at gate taking too long to get through. Seat is too small, a larger person took almost 1/3 of my seat for the duration of flight and he wasn't that big. No noise control in aircraft, couldn't sleep at all (9hrs flight), kids and adult taking, playing like there home. The cabin smell very very unpleasant, due to body odor of passengers. Only 4 restroom for whole economy class, but 6 restrooms for 40 passengers of business class Due to the region of the air liner at, majority of passengers were rude, obnoxious, loud, and really really smell."
Cons: "My original flight supposed to be at 19:30 but went at 18:30,no body inform me about the change and i stuck in the airport for 4 hours more"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed very helpful and friendly. The pasta meal was good."
Cons: "Too many people are allowed to bring too much carry-on baggage on board. I saw a family of 3 with 7 large bags using all of the overhead storage space on 2 sides of the aisle. Women were bringing on 2 carry on bags plus their huge, oversized purses. The limits should be strict and enforced- one bag, one personal item. Their selfishness causes problems for other passengers and the flight crew."
Pros: "They have television screens"

Pros: "Good service, pleasant hosts."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of seat cover. I ate well, but food had to be stopped (couldn't help it, as it was due to turbulence) Couldn't recline because in last row."
Pros: "The fact that there is a way to have on board entertainment but this was clitchy. Hot snack was welcome. Pillows and blankets. Direct flight from Casa."
Cons: "Rude and filthy airline hostess. Having greasy hair and being rude is totally unprofessional. Requesting that a sleeping passenger bring their chair to upright position so that the passenger behind can have a snack? It doesn't make sense.This flight was not full at all and we were strongly urged to check our carry-on due to this. Well they didn't apparently see the fragile sticker as our latern and ceramics were damaged and the bag came out on the main conveyor. Also the door wouldn't open for baggage upon arrival so we were delayed an hour?"
Pros: "good staff, very courteous and caring"
Cons: "took a long time to board, couldn't watch videos bc of bad sound"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Coach"
Pros: "The Flight Attendants were excellent helpful and very pleasant"
Cons: "NOTHING !!!"
Pros: "That this flight had entertain system that was on broad. Did not have to down load or use your horrible app."
Cons: "You should provide food or snacks for flights over 2hours with no charge. We were only offered a drink. Some people do not carry credit cards to purchase items."
Pros: "The crews were okay, they tried."
Cons: "First, the plane was a 767, rode a plane of that size cross the Pacific was extremely uncomfortable. We sat inside the plane for over 2 hours because of some unknown luggage/passenger problem before taking off! I found there were no entertainment. That was the first time I flew oversea without entertainment (TV). The tightness of the seating and boredom made the trip extremely long and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Small seats, no legroom, mediocre food"
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No entertainment. Great person sat next to me."
Pros: "Quick non stop flight from Vancouver to Calgary. Has to change my flight last minute and wasn't charged for doing that. That on its own was a relief and great surprise."
Cons: "The plan was hot - no AC it was hard to sit through. The snacks on Air Canada flights get worse and worse every year. Pay more get less."
Cons: "There is streaming provided over local wifi, but no way to charge devices so once devices are dead there is nothing you can do."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy flight. Very friendly staff."
