I flew LA to Sydney on V and was very happy with the service. Not only that, but I connected to a Virgin Blue flight once I got to Sydney. V Australia had a shuttle bus organised so that as soon as I was through customs my bags and I were collected and taken through to our flight with no delays.

I have flown VA AUS to USA twice. Service is good, hosties generally hot, food average, no free booze, seats are comfortable enough, entertainment is good. It is good value but it's not Singapore Airlines so don't expect it to be.
However, still kicks United's ass!
Also if you want to connect through Brisbane be prepared for an experience in lack of service. Last time I was there connecting to SYD it was pathetic and I was 2 mins off missing my flight at checkin. about 8 years ago
