I love food and I do not like flying and not getting food.

I also have a frequent flyer programme with Qantas, so, no I have never flown Virgin.

I find they are really no cheaper for the times I want to fly anyway or perhaps $10 however I would rather pay a bit more and get the service.

Not sure if they still charge for everything?

I have heard good and bad about them.

I fly domestic and international with Virgin. Have found them to be better than Jetstar for example. They look after the children really well on international especially. Food was good too and plenty of fluids offered. As I don't sleep well the flight attendant came around and offered me turkey sandwiches and drinks and made sure I knew where to get snacks from if I felt like having them. Kids were 10 and 12 at the time and were made to feel as important as the adults were. Can't fault the service we've had anywhere we have flown. Can't say the same for the other airline though
WHICH other airline, helga?
by donjo
Jetstar. No notification to either my daughter or myself of cancellation of the flight home. We go to check in as we were early only to be told that as the flight we were now booked on was some 4 hours later, it was too early for check-in so had to fill in time with a 4 year old suffering severe tonsillitis so not happy all round. We sit waiting to check in for the flight only to be told that the flight is again delayed, and yet again, another announcement of more delays. Some 8 hours later we finally were on board and no offer of so much as a drink of water was made or a sandwich before boarding. You would have thought that the wine we bought on board was cold, but no, another let down. Never again!

Wow, helga, not good in any way!

I have not used Virgin at all.I have been so content with Qantas that I will always use them if and when I need to fly!
I have not used their service.
by Gia
Yes I have about 8-9 yrs ago.

They were fine, and service was quite good.
Having said that it was some time ago!
Nope. And won't.

Am very staunchly loyal to our rightful National Carrier, QANTAS!
Always have been, always will be.

I enjoy accruing QF FF points.

AND Qantas' safety record is THE best!
It's the ONLY Airline to have won the coveted Cumberbatch Trophy, TWICE! (Google it!)
Yes I have flown with Virgin Australia. I found it to be a good service and the food is included in the service
by AJ
My partner and I used to fly quite a lot and we always used Virgin. To be honest I would only ever fly virgin or QANTAS. We joined the Virgin frequent flyer program and actually accrued enough points for a couple of free flights.
Oh! lizzi, like the 'lunch', there's no such thing as a 'free flight', because there're Taxes to be paid! Lol!
by donjo
Yes - a few times. The last time was last year flying to Seattle. The seats were comfortable, food pretty good and the service and friendliness of the staff excellent, so would have no problem flying with them again. They also at the time had the cheapest fare on offer. I have flown Qantas a couple of times in the past and found them expensive, the staff unhelpful, and the airline itself is a bit over-hyped in my opinion.
QANTAS, over-hyped? Wow!
I suppose having THE best safety record of ANY Airline, could be classed as such........NOT!
by donjo
My preference is to fly Virgin Australia. I use them 80% of the time to fly to NZ and 90% of the time around Australia. After some very poor service on Qantas I will not use the National carrier.
Like what, Fiona?
by donjo
i will always fly with virgin airlines
I enjoy flying Virgin but I find their "Cheap" flights aren't cheap. My 3 children live in Sydney & I'm in Perth so it cost Me a fortune when I see them. If it was cheaper I definitely fly to Sydney more.
Why is it so ridiculously more expensive to fly anywhere within our own country(Australia) ???
I totallyu agree -I find them about $5 cheaper than Qantas.
by Finy
Oh! Gill, to answer your question: it's because over the years', the unions have pushed, & pushed, & pushed for higher wages.
THAT is THE most expensive commodity cost to Airlines, & other Companies', too!
That's the reason, if Companies' want to 'cost cut', they sack staff.
by donjo
Yes lots of times.
Yes, they are very good.
Yes in fact I recently went to Melb return and heading to Hobart return in November mainly because I now have a Velocity card. I flew to Europe return with Singapore airlines which is affiliated with Velocity and received good points so now going to use Virgin to build my points up.

I think I might have . . . . I have an idea that they ferried us to NZ once as a carrier for Air NZ. . . . but I could be wrong. We always try to fly Qantas if at all possible. We used Cathay Pacific once to go somewhere (over the rainbow . . . ?) and they were superb. Could not fault them in any way.
by Rice
No, we've never flown Virgin, always Qantas because we only pay about 10% with Qantas. We have flown Jetstar once or twice to Melbourne or return. Last August we flow Singapore airlines, because Qantas doesn't fly to Bali, but I think they should! Of cause they used too, before all these other airlines came about! The business class meals are not nearly as nice as the Qantas business class meals. Sorry, I'm way of the topic again!
