Delay - The flight got delayed by an hour, no one knows why? the screen at the boarding area show on time despite online flight stats say dealyed Boarding - We were in economy and no one cares to smile, assistance is too far to think Food - Only two meals, one when we were asleep around 1am - 2am LA Time. After 12 hours into the trip breakfast was served, announcement was omelette, ham & cheese or French toast, but when they came to the seat, they had only omelette. Crew - One of the worst crew, they chat for hours together but no help to economy customer, no smile, no coffee, no snacks in long haul flight, wish had them on camera but didn't want to invade privacy of others, they offer rotten fruits if one asks for snack

The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight.

The view

Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen.

Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water.

There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies.

One flight attendant in particular. Wish I knew her name to commend her. Also, had a bassinet for my grandson!! Frequent beverages offered, especially water. Allowed to move seats once in the air!! Able to help my daughter with her baby. Chicken dish was actually really good.

No movie screens at all!? Odd; especially for an International flight. Check bathroom paper supplies more frequently. Ran out of paper towels two bathrooms. No fault of yours, but the Venice airport was a nightmare. I am use to airports in the US and was shocked how long the line was to get through to our gate. We couldn’t even find the end because it wrapped around like an “S”. Surprised we had to print our boarding pass (but was never asked for it); couldn’t do a mobile boarding pass.

The only challenge for me was they couldn't take my form of payment on the plane for some food so I was out of luck. I had a Mastercard debit from the states. It is also a loss of revenue for you guys as well. They couldn't take the apple pay from the passenger next to me either. I know it's a lot of systems to update

Good flight, punctual, comfortable.

Even though I supplied my frequent flyer number when booking, it was not linked to my booking. That means a whole lot of time chasing up getting my flight added to my frequent flyer account. The Virgin website is at times frustrating and non-functional especially in regards to the link between it and the Velocity frequent flyer programme.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
