Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Had 3 seats to myself as plane wasn’t full."
Cons: "Long walk from connecting flights at LAX and incorrect gate number on schedule, necessitating even more walking. Exhausting before even getting on plane."
Pros: "- decent wine, fresh fruit, in-seat entertainment, smooth flight"
Cons: "- audio was buzzy, seats very thin, bathrooms not stocked with paper towels"
Cons: "The seats were really cramped"
Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic!"
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and crew."
Pros: "The seat is narrow compare with other airlines."
Pros: "The friendly crew, space for my legs and the food."
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was faulty."
Pros: "The movie selection was broad and current."
Cons: "There were plenty of movies to watch, but having more would be awesome!"
Pros: "Excellent seat comfort & entertainment options. Food was average."
Cons: "No vegetarian meal options"
Pros: "The food choices were lovely, plenty of bathrooms and touch screen entertainment (albeit with an outdated feeling and clunky interface.) The skycam was the best part of the entertainment interface options, giving you an outside view of the plane at all times from a camera at the top of the plane tail. Watching the plane during its descent and landing was very cool."
Cons: "I’ve flown in tight-spaced economy seats before, but the lack of space to even bend over to reach items on the floor was extreme on this plane and unacceptable for a 15+ hour flight. It truly felt like a straightjacket. Serious acrobatics were required to reach items on the floor. The tray table would also fly down on its own, the lever holding it would slide free while I was sleeping. There was no wifi at all, not even for using the qantas apps. My fiancé flew on Virgin the week before and was able to purchase wifi and stay in touch with me for $19 for the duration of the flight. Even my flight earlier this year with Qantas on the Dreamliner lacked usable wifi, but the experience of the Dreamliner plane itself was wonderful. In addition, the usb ports on the end of the armrests weren’t working. I feel it should be part of the safety briefing to point out where the usable power points are, given how vital charged phones are these days for boarding passes, reaching loved ones and entertainment when the wifi isn’t working. I didn’t realize there was a plug for laptops/ block plugs until I asked about the USB ports not working until the last 2 hours of the flight. The location of that was somewhere few would notice or look if not explicitly told. This will be the last time I ever book with Qantas when an a380 model is involved, unless great overhauls and updates are completed. Economy should not lack basic ergonomic comforts and while I’ve spent years touting my love for Qantas, having had wonderful experiences in the past, this one fell far below what I had come to expect from the Qantas name."
Pros: "They gave us food vouchers and snacks for our delayed flight. The choice of movies available was great. the flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Our international flight was delayed by over 2 hours. When we called to rebook our connection flight from Brisbane to Cairns, the agent on the phone told us they were unable to help us. The online website also did not allow us to rebook. When we got to Brisbane, the only flight remaining for us was a flight 2hours later with connection. Also, the phone jack was so poor that half of the time you couldn’t hear the movie."
Pros: "Pillows were comfy, seats reclined to a comfy position"
Pros: "Service and attitude"
Cons: "Very long flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants gotta be the happiest people in the biz. I didn't want to be there, but that they did made my whole trip better."
Cons: "They only offered pretzels."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. They worked hard to make the long flight as enjoyable as possible. The food was bland and uninspired. The in seat entertainment had a great variety though it stopped working with about an hour to go so that was frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."
Pros: "*Our flight from LA to Melbourne on January 7th was cancelled. Fortunately, Qantas crew members were able to place us on an American Airlines flight to JFK the very same day."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to technical difficulties. But the airline did not plan ahead and was understaffed to take care of the individuals on the airline to speed up the process of waiting in lines. They knew we were coming and still only had 2 individuals on staff to take care of hundreds of people so the lines were longer than needed to be. Poor planning and accommodating of individuals during this time has made me not want to fly with this airline again."
Cons: "It was just TOO COLD! I had the sniffles for four days after arriving. The reclining seat didn't have much lumbar support."
Pros: "Managed to reach destination safely. Only taking about 8 hrs more than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed. The made boarded passengers disembark and wait for an unpredictable amount of time with no updates. Then finally we boarded then the service was very poor. For example they did not remove the dishes for about three hours after serving dinner. The last straw was that they diverted to Sydney instead of the final destination Melbourne as the crew was going over 20 hrs. With the diversion they saved about 45 min , but the exhausted passengers lost another 3 hrs in their already miserable flight. Also quantas NOT friendly for people traveling with kids.... BEWARE."
Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."
Cons: "Awful baggage claim process. Plane has landed for one hour and still no mention of which belt you can retrieve it. Qantas is horrible in customer service."
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Room was quite cold."
Pros: "Crew was trying hard to make customers comfortable"
Cons: "Delay in departure, my seat was next to the “kitchen “, so I didn’t get any sleep due to to constant noise!"
Pros: "The food is excellent. The flying attendant is friendly"
Cons: "The plane was very late"
Pros: "The Pilot"
Cons: "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."
Cons: "floor of plane not clean full of crumbs"
Pros: "Crew, spacious seats and airplane."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, like bathrooms."
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "my console didn’t have sound but other than that it was excellent"
Pros: "easy boarding,efficient staff, lots of entertainment options, great pilot - very smooth flight and excellent landing"
Cons: "got stuck in middle seat, def not comfortable; crew not very cheery"
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight. Good snacks at back of plane. Plenty of bathrooms. Crew were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Headphone jack and USB charging jack didn't work. So wasn't able to watch any movies. Arm rest was broken. When the seat in front reclines it gets very tight forcing you to recline and do it to the person behind you. Needs refurbishing. The seats are in poor shape and are pretty tight."
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "The service of both inflight & gate agents were wonderful"
Cons: "The seats were a bit tight"
Pros: "Very accommodating for such a long flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down causing the plane to be delayed 70 min in an already 15 hour long flight."
Pros: "Worst food on flight m service"
Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."
Pros: "Great exportable the staff was very helpful and friendly I will fly again"
Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Cons: "The airline used a codeshare that did not seem to signify anything. They would not provide me with any help when it became clear I would miss my connection. Furthermore, I purchased an extra legroom seat and was charged for it twice. Avoid if at all possible"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions and that they supplied us with food for different parts of the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was delayed in the beginning of the flight"
Pros: "Should have put me on one of the Qantas flights that left sooner, no explanation, no compensation."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3.5 hours so we were stuck at LAX for a long long time, way passed the closing time of all the shops and restaurants at the international terminal :(. Otherwise a great flight w decent food and great service"
Pros: "I was able to make a connection without too much hassle"
Cons: "I had a economy plus flight booked and should have been on a Qantas from LA to JFK but due to delays I was put on an AA flight and downgraded to economy. I could have just as easily been upgraded to business - you chose not to do that."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants were more interested in socializing with each other than working. More interested in talking about what they were going to do in NY. They were not neatly dressed as compared to others Quantas crew members on other flights, before our meal was served they were eating rolls before serving us. Changing flights was a mess, getting your bags, going though customs, picking up bags and having to go so far in the airport to go check in again was disorganized. Food was not good, fish was fishy, worst meal in three weeks of traveling off and on plans in and out of AU."
Pros: "Attendants were congenial, though not much visible between meals..."
Cons: "My window seat was further from window than normal so could not lean against it to sleep. My overhead light was not positioned properly, so did not help much. It was centered between me and person beside, so while she slept and I wanted to use, I couldn't. Also had to push against connection plugging earphones in to make work. It was a constant effort and made hand sore. And even at best the sound was poor."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the seats were uncomfortable and the air cabin was very cold."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, cancelled then on again. Communication regarding the flight changes were very confusing and had guest running though the airport not knowing what to do. My suitcase was busted and destroyed.There were not enough blankets for everyone in the cold plane. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The entertainment app did not allow me to watch any of the quality programming and my seat to Chicago was extremely cramped and did not recline."
Cons: "there was no food on the flight"
Pros: "Professionalism and kindness"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "My tv screen did not work."
Pros: "Crew board and also on plane were accommodating and very friendly."
Cons: "Three people in row and all over 200lbs it felt like ever time to get seatbelt Or the horrible placed outlets between seats but under seat and you can not look under seat cause no space in front of you to access and can’t help but to rub against person in next too you. So had to apologize and explain what was trying to do before I tried. I try not to fly this airline or other large carries for"
Cons: "Spotty Wi-Fi. Only on an American flight"
Pros: "The on time performance and good friendly crew"
Cons: "The seat where I sat had minimum recline"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The seating space is to small"
Cons: "One hour on tarmac."
Pros: "Fast boarding and departure"
Cons: "No outlets or charging ports on the flight"
Cons: "Old plane, no service, TINY SEATS"
Pros: "the warm baked goods when we landed"
Cons: "not so much leg space"
Pros: "Noisy intrusive spoiled crying screaming kids kicking seats shaking rattles and crew was helpless"
Pros: "Amazing first time doing a first class flight and loved it!!! I would highly recommend it to my friends! Thank you"
Cons: "Rudeness of flight attendant Departure time changes Gate changes"
Pros: "crew members friendly and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "More leg room and need better snacks"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Overall the flight process was fine."
Cons: "Kayak is not transparent enough about highlighting which flights are low cost flights during purchasing. I thought I was purchasing a regular fare where I could bring a normal carry-on onto the flight, but this was a low cost flight and I had to check my bag. This information was not disclosed until after payment, and I believe this is dishonest on the part of Kayak. Kayak needs to be much more upfront about the details of the flights so that we passengers can select flights according to their needs. I felt deceived by the fare and would have purchased a different flight if I would have known ahead of time."
Cons: "They (united airlines) put my wife's luggage in the wrong flight and we are still waiting for it to arrive. It's already been 8 hrs since we landed and every time we call them, they're telling us it's scanned in a different city. Now she is without clothes and her necessities."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing all travel is ok."
Pros: "There was a nice selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was not comfortable at all for an International flight. United should invest in bigger planes for flights over 6 hours. I could hardly sleep since the seats were so uncomfortable. Further, I was unable to get up and move around as much as I had on other international flights. There was no room on this plane to walk around and stretch. The food was mediocre. Quantas, Air China and Japan Airlines have much better meals."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They offered refreshments when we needed."
Cons: "Crew and food could be better"
Pros: "The crew loading us didn't prepare properly before loading passengers. They called group #s together instead of one at a time. Which resulting in someone with a lower boarding # having to check their bag because their wasn't enough overhead space. Flight attendants were very rude when approached by the problem."
Pros: "Will never use united."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Had to pay to watch movie."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Everything went well with United at LAX. Baggage check-in and boarding were very easy. Interesting and fun entertainment options made the flight go extremely fast. Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Leg room seems to be getting smaller and smaller in economy class; could barely move in my window seat."
Pros: "Nice, big plane"
Cons: "The entertainment went out."
Pros: "Nice plane very smooth flight"
Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection to Wichita"
Pros: "The plane boarded smoothly and on time"
Cons: "The flight attendants ran over my foot with the cart and they kept bumping people as they went down the isle. I don't blame them for bumping into the passengers as much as the aisles being too narrow. The worst part, however, was the television. On my flight to California two weeks ago we had free television and movies. On the flight today we couldn't get anything without paying eight dollars. Ridiculous!!!"
Cons: "I was flying with 3 others and my screen didn't worked at all and 1 earphone port didn't worked from the other guys and when we asked the flight attendants what she can do she answered that she can't do anything"
Cons: "UA5132 SBP -> LAX -> ORD My return flight wasn’t better. I arrived at the airport early because I couldn't check in online. First United staff couldn't find my reservation for 10/9. When they finally did I was informed that the flight, once again, was delayed for more than an hour and that there was a high likelihood that I'd miss my connection, once again, to my final destination. I ended up having to select a completely different flight the following day. So I missed an entire day of work. Not surprisingly, this flight was also delayed, landing 30 minutes late."
Cons: "delayed for typhoon then delayed another day because air traffic control delayed my connector"
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Pros: "Gate agent moved us to first class due to lack of seats in main. Nice to see they can do that."
Pros: "The crew. The cheese plate."
Cons: "The TV kept going off. No news channels available."
Pros: "Price was great and flight crew was nice."
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"
Cons: "I received somewhat bad service at every point of contact with United. My flight was canceled in Houston, so I forced to stay overnight. I asked the rep at the customer service station if United pays for a hotel room if our flight gets canceled, I was told no. There were several canceled flights, do all the hotels were booked in the area. It was up to me to call every hotel in a 10 mile radius at midnight to find a room. I had to come out of pocket 150 dollars for the room and I missed work the following day due to my canceled flight. I was forced to stay in a hotel room with none of my clean clothes, no toiletries. I was told by a united rep, "we get off at midnight so you won't be able to get your suitcase today". All in all, it was one of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. I would like some one to call or email me."
Pros: "The boarding was ok"
Cons: "The entertainment was terrible you couldn't watch anything but direct tv commercials no wifi or anything they ask you to perches it but aren't we paying enough atleast to have a single movie or tv show but no we get commercials the whole flight"
