Again the staff were great but that’s it for this flight. The rest was a pretty poor experience.

I paid extra for a window seat NOT over a wing but given the flight switch was given a window seat with no view (over wing) and no recline (against a bulk head wall). So I paid extra for worse seat to the wrong destination!

Flight was late boarding at LAX and at Sydney had to be bused to terminal which was slow. Otherwise all was great.

Mediocre 2.6

Again, cabin crew is friendly and no last minute gate changes,

The food was gross, which could be a just a cultural difference in food tastes. There were no functioning USB charger ports on the return flight even though the ports were present. No wifi, which is a first. Most airlines I fly on these days always have some type of wifi. Lastly, the 'touch-screen' on the seat for entertainment barely worked. Buttons didn't work no matter how much you touched them. There was a delay and the selection of movies and tv were pathetic. I will not be flying Qantas again.

Horrible communicatuon between the crew and passengers. Poor entertainment and comfort. The delay in Chicago was poorly updated and once the plane landed the flight taxied for upwards of a half hour.

The staff put on a smiley face despite the delays and upset passengers.

Delays from an earlier flight getting in and then maintenance delays. It was an overcrowded, uncomfortable flight. We didn't even get an apology from it being over 40 minutes late. Then you want us to buy tv? I'm thinking of flying Jet Blue next time!

Staff were respectful Plane was warm enough Left on time Extended leg room seats were actually comfortable Not next to toilets

Food was somewhat disappointing. Ordered a gluten free meal which somehow turned into a vegetarian meal - that was disappointing.

The Pilot

Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Had to get off the plane to get a visa. Delayed even more when we arrived in Australia. Didn’t have a gate ready when we landed. Lost my luggage in a flight to Brisbane.

Okay 5.3

The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances.

Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
