Great flight, only downside is you have to watch entertainment on your phone. I thought this was falsely advertised when tickets were purchased. No chargers either so doesn't make much sence for an airline that isn't a budget airline

Entertainment on flight was poor. TV screens have been replaced with IPads. There were numerous issues with connectivity etc.

Food was terrible and really needs improvement. To be honest I would have flown Emirates if I hadn't booked last minute

Flew Air New Zealand on the forward flight, and the price was about doubled.

Will always fly Jetstar now. Beautiful takeoff and very smooth riding. For someone that had anxiety flying overseas. Bad experience when I flew with Virgin never again. Thanks Jetstar
