Flight to Perth excellent .crew very attentive and looked after all .seats comfortable as they reclined a little and paid extra for extra leg room .Perfect.
Return was totally different trip .staff not on their game .biggest problem the seat didnt recline even small amount. Ok i understand why but surely its not a engineering problem to restrict the recline to one notch back. to relieve back pressure on flights at 4 hours +..i wont fly Virgin for that reason !
Flight Brisbane to Hervey bay .nice comfortable old plane .taxing out there was a loud whine on the starboard side .other passengers commented and i answered it sounds like a hydraulic engine ,getting a bit tired . Landing at Hervey Bay i mentioned it to the cabin crew .Comment oh yes its a hydraulic motor . I had to say well its twice as bad as in Brisbane now, and grinding on to a failure .you should tell the captain .as if i was flying it i i`d ground it in the maintenance book until further confirmation.
Hope thy passed on as there were a number of passengers looking worried .
