Virgin Australia - food and in-flight entertainment

Hi there,

Does anyone know what sort of costs one would be looking at for food and in-flight entertainment onboard a flight from Sydney - LAX?

I think you'll find it's all free. Have a look at the 'Experience' section of their website.

It's all included in the cost of the flight for International travel.

Virgin have in-seat individual screens with a wide range of shows , movies , music for you to choose for free, food is fairly bland standard airline food , if you want good food and comfy seats fly Qantas , alot better food , even icecream bars and help yourself snacks

Thanks everyone. We aren't selecting an airline based on quality of food but rather price difference between Virgin and Qantas. A friend told me that you had to pay for it onboard Virgin which is why I put the question out there. Thank you for your reponses.

I have flown this route with Virgin Australia, and was very happy, especially with the price.

I enjoyed the food, and the flight attendants were great, as was the in-flight entertainment.

I had read that some people thought the seats were a bit hard, but I didn't notice with it.

from memory u get a couple of alcoholic drinks free then u have to pay.

other than that the service is fine and the food passable. IFE is good esp if u like kids punching the back of your seat playing games.

and yes, we found the seats extemely hard and uncomfortable....and is the major reason we wouldn't fly them again.
