Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"

Pros: "The cabin crew was pretty good. This was the only saving grace in otherwise very poor experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and they changed the gate from one end of the terminal (A15) to the other (C1). The waiting area was cramped. This being the home of Singapore Airlines, the way managed this entire thing was pathetic. Boarding announcements were also confusing."

Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"

Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"
Cons: "Food , both quality and quantity was poor. Entertainment - world movies did not have many choices for such a long flight"
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."

Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."
Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."

The television had every new movie you could watch. Food, for an airline, was great. All drink service was included. Best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."
Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Attentive Staff - Fabulous"
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Pros: "Exceptional service!"

Pros: "nice food, plenty of water, good service, quite comfortable & on board wifi if you need it"

Cons: "Great that they served two warm meals without extra charge? But the meals were quite bland, with little imagination."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."
Cons: "They were not able to seat me next to my partner despite us having booked/selected our seats 6 months in advance. Additionally, the check in process took forever and we had a bunch of issues getting on the flight"
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."

Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Cons: "We were not told that we had to buy meals and drinks ahead of time?! We had no food for an 8 hour flight and couldn't even buy a soft drink?! We were on an outdated plane leased plane from EVA Air and there were maybe 10 movies to choose from? Also, my reading light was broken.

Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."

Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."
Cons: "Paid for business class so I could Relax and sleep on the 10+ hour flight. Unfortunately, I was in seat 1G which was adjacent to the galley and storage compartments for the flight crew.

Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "How caring and involved the flight crew made everyone comfortable during the long haul."

Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and two of the fight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I didn't care for the family that was surrounding us from all angles; they were constantly in and out of their seats visiting one another while pulling, kicking, and opening and closing the tray tables over and over again. I didn't care for one of the unpleasant flight attendants as well."
Pros: "Free booze."
Cons: "Not worth the extra money for preferred seats. Food was terrible. I figured I could just buy a sandwich or something but they didnt have anything except for pretzels. Even the options they had available on the menu the crew said they didn't have any of it on board. Then the in flight entertainment wasn't working for some people so they had to reboot the system which took about half an hour and I lost my place in the movie I was watchIMG. I guess it helped that they give you free booze, which was helpful in relaxing after all the issues. Overall I did not enjoy this flight even half as much as I did the way there."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."

Cons: "Small seats, no room."
Pros: "Air New Zealand provided the best service Iʻve had in a while!"
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service"
Pros: "Premium Economy is worth it on long flights, especially if they're overnight flights!"
Pros: "We think Air New Zealand is by far the best airline we've ever flown on. Service, food, entertainment were all superlative"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"
Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."

Pros: "The crew in the plane was very supportive and assisted us with the baby and have provided all possible comfort"

However QA did not provide a wheelchair during check-in at Paris Charles de Gaulle for whatever unjustified reason"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane and entertainment offered is excellent"
Cons: "Headphones way too big (even when made as small as possible) 2 of 3 checked bags sustained damage to the structure of the bags! Passenger control was poor. Guy behind us was watching videos on his phone throughout flight without headphones-broadcasting to the rest of the seats around him."

Cons: "Some of the crew members where “to green”, perhaps a bit more of experience is needed."

Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"
Pros: "Excellent on board staff"
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."

Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Quality food and hospitality"
Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."
Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."
Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"
Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient."
Cons: "Check in with partner airline was super glitchy"

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The convenience of the flight route was appreciated. Hawaiian has an excellent safety record which gave us peace of mind."

Pros: "Early departure early arrival"
Cons: "Food options, more prompt service,"
Cons: "Honestly, this was my first time flying with Hawaiian Airlines and I was very impressed with the overall professionalism and how thorough the staff was in making sure everyone had their seatbelts on when necessary. They were also very kind and friendly."

Cons: "Incredibly slow baggage handling. Extremely tight seating"

Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Pros: "Fantastic attendants, clean, overal A+"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."
Cons: "I received more updates on delay, gate changes and expected departure time from Kayak by text messages than from the airline. There were regular gate area updates. Passengers were not given any 'make-up' benefits for the 6-hour delay, like access to pay movies or discounted pay for snacks. I don't favor free booze. Even the meal was crappy, not that the crew could change loaded meals. Passengers felt like the delay was not big deal to the airline and crew."
Pros: "Flight staff was pleasant. Ticket agent at the gate got my mom and I a seat together closer up."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours leaving Sacramento, I booked seats together for myself and my mom but when I checked in they had us across the plane from each other. In order to get seats together we had to move from row 17 to row 43. The plane was freezing."
Cons: "Husband and I upgraded our seats, only to board and settle in and be asked that one of us leave the seat we paid for because they made an error and double booked one of the two seats."
Pros: "Quick problem solving and excellent service when my assigned seats were not the same on the boarding pass. The awesome safety video from around the islands. The crew was very efficient and kind. The breakfast mea was just right. Milk with good coffee! Especially liked that HA offers plenty of water! Mahalo nui loa!"
Pros: "Fantastic in comparison to the many I have flown. Service was great, up graded economic seats had plenty of room and were fairly comfortable. Nice big plane. I did feel swished in like a sardine."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "aircraft was old and small for the distance and seats had zero legroom. Nothing good to watch in way of movies."
Pros: "The fact the plane arrived in Honolulu ahead of schedule. Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was about par with other experiences."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work. The conditions on then plane were warm - was the first flight ever taken where it was not cool. The food was unappealing."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, lights were dimmed for rest cause of early flight and comfortable environment."
Pros: "I like that they gave a meal during the flight, especially since it was a 6 hour one. Food wasn’t too special: a hot sandwich, chips, and cookie. Good overall atmosphere. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "When checking in, there wasn’t any seats available. Needed to wait at the gate to finally get seat assignment, after boarding already started. Traveling as a party of two, was lucky to be able to sit together for a full flight. Also, all entertainment options cost money. For other airlines, some cost money and some did not. For a long flight, I would expect free entertainment, but I might be spoiled by flights to China."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The plane maintenance for the video equipment seems to be lacking and the plane interior was dated."
Pros: "Friendly service. Clean nice plane."
Cons: "The landing was harsh."
Cons: "Stiff seats"
Cons: "TVs should not charge to watch anything (many other airlines offer this). Also, offering wifi would be a big improvement."
Pros: "Nice seats, and staff and good food."
Cons: "Plane should be equipped with wifi."
Cons: "Why is there no complimentary food service on a 10 hour flight?! If I was flying internationally there would be two complimentary meals served."
Pros: "The service of the flight."
Cons: "Hawaiian air didn't provide much food"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and I appreciated the in-flight meal."
Pros: "The seats and space were great. The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The plane was very hot and uncomfortable. When asked to turn the a/c temperature down, it took about 20 minutes to become comfortable, but then about an hour later it started getting warm again."
Pros: "That you fed us even if the quality was just fair."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and very helpful getting us to our connecting flight to Kona since we arrived late, due to equipment problems leaving Sacramento. A free meal was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Cancelled our flight, after that we didn't get our luggages ☹️ That's why we didn't take part of our trip to Polynesian Cultural Center, the flight was delayed 9 hours"
Cons: "You have the odacity to charge for entertainment on a trans-pacific flight. Your crew members did a poor job of redirecting the travelers-- they were constantly ignoring the seatbelt sign and were standing during landing."
Pros: "I loved this airline. The crew is definitely Aloha Spirit minded with Fierce resolve and great food, on time boarding and landing and I got the best blanket from Moana Mahalo, Linda"
Pros: "Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)"
Cons: "Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(."
Pros: "crew was friendly and helpful and the seats in economy plus were more than adequate."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."
Pros: "Loved the customer service all the way. All of the employees were very attentive and were genuinely interested in helping everyone."
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like. I really liked everything."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier."
Cons: "I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and the captain made a landing so perfect we didn't know we had landed!"
Cons: "The food was disappointing. The sandwich in particular was dry and tasteless. Other passengers mentioned this too."
Pros: "Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price."
Cons: "Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome."
Pros: "I upgraded my seat while checking in and was satisfied with the amount of leg room I had."
Cons: "While I apprecite the airline wanting to stand out and serving food, but I'm allergic to eggs. Egg sandwiches were served for breakfast."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seating arrangement took longer then my usual experiences but it wasn't horrific it's the only negative thing I have to say"
Pros: "Everything was great, the food, the movies and my seat was great I was able to change my seat online if I didnt like where I was siting."
Pros: "Thank for the great staff"
Cons: "The chicken dish was a disappointment q"
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew was super kind and friendly. Food and beverages were good as well."
Cons: "Seat space in main cabin was a little cramped. The seats themselves were a little hard."
Pros: "Everything was marvelous. The staff, food, and entertainment were excellent just like on our flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "More comfortable than expected."
Cons: "Could not check in online or at the kiosk (the flight was part of an overall ticket bought on Air New Zealand). Only one checked bag per ticket, but we had an extra bag because of the international legs. An employee got us checked in, bags tagged, and convinced us to carry on one more bag."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "Same as previous answer!"
Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alot of the check-in consoles were closed when we got to Brisbane which is the only way to check if you can't do it on line."
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."
Cons: "Waiting at Brisbane Airport to fix the AC."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Cons: "Our bags were put on the wrong belt and we didn't receive them for over an hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed no updates in lounge then was rung to ask where i was as bostding closed. Told girl on phone on way bit thete was no flight status on tv in lounge... basically didnt believe me.. rude!!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Cons: "i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!"
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."
Cons: "Service was poor."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"
Cons: "Food was not as good as previous Qantas flights. Probably because it was catering to American crowd."
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"
Cons: "Nil."
Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "I don't injure about anyone else but when I fly such long distances you get anxious over being cared for. Stewards were great, food was great and plenty of it. Anything you needed just let them online and they will accommodate"
Cons: "We were delayed due to wheel problems which ultimately affected my connecting flight. Missed the flight"
Pros: "Service and food was pretty good."
Cons: "Didn't care for the movie selection. Not much of a variety."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good seats. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Qantas seems to be notorious late. This flight was no exception. The food was terrible. They called it a pulled pork sandwich. Jikes. Very crowded"
Pros: "Complimentary meals/snacks, socks, toothbrushes, eye masks, blankets and pillows"
Cons: "The wing in the Brisbane terminal had no charging stations and only two toilet stalls in the women's bathroom."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"
Pros: "I loved the food and snacks and the endless selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Leg space could be a bit better. When people put there seat back the back of their head was right in my face and so I had to recline mine back Hahaha"
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."
Cons: "older aircraft"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled at 2:30am and then I had to try and find another flight rather than the airline automatically rescheduling me"
Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."
Cons: "The 747 we flew was older and noisy. Our trip to Sydney from LAX was aboard an Airbus A-380 ... much quieter, roomier, and equipped with the latest technology."
Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."
