Very happy for the free entertainment. Cross country flights are typically challenging and the free entertainment sets Virgin apart. Food was fairly good.

Seats were loose and had a hard time adjusting. We could not get to seat back up until my wife and I had to push it together. The outlets are very difficult to use. The passenger in the aisle had to share an outlet with me which made my seating arrangements uncomfortable due to the positioning of the plug.

There were no free snacks which most other airlines provide. I ordered a meal which was soggy and disappointing. The wifi went in and out and I felt they offered less movie options than delta.

The plane itself seemed fine, nice to have a TV with free movies and shows, and the inflight crew was fine as well.

Flight was delayed out of Newark. Boarded, then deplaned and waited, reboarded. Fine, these things happen, but the staff announcing what was happening were very amature-ish and gave different information in different announcements. Finally departed, got to SF, were delayed once we arrived bc no gates were available, then finally got to baggage claim and it took over 40 minutes for the bags to arrive. The whole thing was just messy and amature-ish and did not inspire confidence in me that we were in safe hands.

Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight.

— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
