Cons: "The upper deck 747 windows are a weird angle so looking out means you crane your neck."
Pros: "Staff were courteous, efficient and well presented. Aircraft was clean. Entertainment was par with the usual awful resistive screen and slow response time making the UX just that little bit worse."

She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am. Then only to find out I'm to go from terminal 1 to 3. Had 10 min. together there and go threw customs. Ran with injured knee."

The entertainment selection is outstanding, especially for a 14-hour flight. power outlets work, and they even have snacks in the galley area like Lufthansa so if you need a soft drink, coffee or candy...it is there all during the flight. A long flight could not be made easier"

Pros: "No issues."
Pros: "Qantas crew were amazing. Entertainment offered was excellent."
Cons: "Not suitable meals for a long flight. E.g. Chili dogs way too messy, garlic bread should not contain garlic! Was charged an additional $35 per seat to get seat assignments 24 hrs before. Then, seats not together & changed again before flight. Why the fee for nothing?"
Pros: "Qantas is my favorite airline. I will always fly with them given the choice."

The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"

Cons: "Was not the original scheduled flight."
Pros: "Food and courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and tried to make us as comfortable as possible in an old plane"
Cons: "The plane was clearly old. The leg room was horrible. I am 5'10" which is not super tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. The entertainment was great, but the screen are so tiny and the picture quality was terrible. Comfort is huge on flights that long and it was not comfortable. I felt like $1600 should have gotten me a bit more."
