Check In Experience

We were taken through the ‘flight closure’ counter having arrived at the airport later than expected.

As I’ve said in the past…take away the stress of running late and the quick processing of the ‘flight closure’ counter is bliss!

The staff member assisted me with adding my frequent flyer number to the booking as well which I was very thankful for, having forgotten to do so whilst making the booking online.

On Time Service

The flight departed on time but was delayed in air by traffic control for 7 minutes.

Cabin/Seat Condition

The seats were in great condition but the headrests were quite uncomfortable and firm.

Thankfully you could adjust them to sit higher and relatively out of the way of your head but it wasn’t the most comfortable seat to say the least.

Food & Beverage

I enjoyed a cup of tea (now complimentary) and a ‘Spotted Cow Cookies’ cranberry and white chocolate cookie served by the lovely and affable David.


I’m always pleased when I board a flight complete with screens on the seat backs and this flight was no exception.

It gives me the chance to catch up on Foxtel given that I don’t have cable at home and ‘The View’ was my program of choice en route to Melbourne.


Service was brilliant as usual with special mention to David who epitomizes the Virgin Australia service ethic.
