Hello. I am Luna from Auckland. My friends and I booked a ticket to Apia, our first stop in Samoa. We booked our ticket with Virgin Australia. We must say that we are very much impressed with their service. Check-in and boarding process was fast and efficient. The seats were okay, the leg space was just right. The flight itself was good, there was little turbulence along the way. Although they forgot my luggage back in Auckland, I was lucky that they move and respond fast enough.
