The plane required the note book to view current movie but the note book has to have the app installed before take off. It was not properly draw my attention in advance via e-mail or text messages. For such a long flight, Qantas should have a better plane to server this route. Totally disappointed.

Cheap biz flight from ruh to mnl, non stop service

If ur in economy and westerner, seats are tiny. I went biz class and seats are old, food just ok, stewardesses just ok. Movies are Vina iPad mini and the headphones are the old foam style and you can’t hear the movie well. If u want to be pampered with champagne, great food, etc., go elsewhere. If u just want to get from point a to point b, this is the airline for you

Atrocious legroom & my legs are NOT long; like being in a stress position entire haul. BRUTAL. Flown many airlines to SEA, this was so bad it shocked me. The food (every 'meal' was poor, gross all-around but the "bacon & eggs" ....the egg didn't taste like real egg, bacon left raw. Inedible. The one exception was the chicken breast, that was actually a good standard... but they never have enough for everyone, and the rest of the meal was inedible. Almost no snacks offered, variety of drinks non-existent.

Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit.
