Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"
Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."
Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Pros: "Keith the baby whisperer. Who took the babies one by one from there clueless mothers and stopped them crying and screaming. Kieth deserves his own commercial."
Cons: "The food and the seat comfort."
Pros: "I liked the disabled service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. And why aren’t all the people flying with babies and young children all in one part of the plan?"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"
Pros: "Love going to Yancey when we are pushed by the tail winds!"
Cons: "Breakfast was dire"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Terrible meals. Ran out if nany items. Only one refreshment s tree and in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after 8 hours of Rebooked flight included an additonal stop, as well as overnight layover. Qantas made no attempt to give have better flights or offer any vouchers for the trouble (they provided the bare minimum of hotel, but no additional perks)."
Pros: "The crew we're wonderful and very attentive."
Cons: "For being one of the longest flights in the world, there is little in the way if accommodations to make it any easier. The food was less than desirable and the seats not nearly as comfortable as they should be."
Cons: "My business class seat was the bulk head seat. I paid dearly for this ticket and was scheduled to do business in Sydney when we landed. Having both the bathroom and food prep just beside the bulk head seat means that the staff needs to mandate a quite environment so that those persons in those seats can sleep. The staff fraternized with the passenger and I was unable to sleep. I should have been warned about this seat selection. Also the curtain that separates the areas should provide more sound proofing ability. Devastated upon arrival. This was one of my worst Qantas experiences."
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."
Pros: "freindly staff."
Cons: "First I wasn't told I'd be going domestic . Arrived at the airport 4:30 to catch the internation flight @7:20. Funny thing is I was the only person around. There was the changing of shifts for ground & cleaning etc. No ticket booths. Put passport in kiosk,it said basically no. Finally a ticket agent showed up. She tried my passport ,and nothing. Checked threw the computer & it said leaving out of domestic. Go down to the end of the hall, can check in there. It's Qantas alright, not open till 7:00. Start to panic a bit. Stopped someone and asked. They told me I was at the wrong terminal! Get to other, check in. Ask if I have to collect luggage and customs at LAX. No goes right threw. Wrong. Waited for cases at LAX. Have to collect & go threw customs. No cases, lost in Melbourne. Then I was ignored."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "The movies would not play until two hours outside of LA."

Pros: "Food was better than expected. Appreciate the multiple snacks in the middle of the flight. Appreciated the 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. The crew serving the food had excellent customer service skills. The movies listed on the website were different than the actual flight. I really wanted to see a couple that weren't available."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that was disappointing that stands out to me."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Hostess did not allow 2 ounce drink every other time traveled by qantas 10 times in last 5 yrs had no issue This time qantas made us take our baggage to terminal 2 west jet check in counter which head office should know is a far distance should have arranged to do so like other times in the past"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Crew is great and helpful!"
Cons: "Delay was long. Instructions on re-booking was dodgy. Luggage took for ever to come up and it caused alot of anxiety for many people. Some customers got "Express Passes" due to tight connections and some didn't. General confusion among Quantas' ground staff."
Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."
Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, and just felt very welcomed from the moment I stepped in. Overall super super awesome"
Pros: "it was nice to get an early phone call about flight delay and given a food credit for the delay, pleasant check-in, smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "the poor boarding control and information. delayed boarding time and no-one from Qantas at gate until 45 minutes past the time scheduled on ticket and no communication of why nor when we would board. new passengers arriving were allowed to start getting in at gate before notifying us who had been waiting there to be told to get in or in what order. seat arm rest (between seat 58b and 58c) was wobbly. Entertainment movies need newer choices specially for people like me who can't sleep on long flights and have seen all this movies. where's the classical music?."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "Despite the fact that there was a nearly 9 hour delay in Sydney, Qantas handled it as best they could. I received three $15 meal vouchers to use in the airport. And, since I missed my connecting flight, Qantas booked a hotel for me, free shuttle service to the hotel from the airport and rebooked me on the earliest connecting flight. I was of course inconvenient for this to happen but it was handled well."
Pros: "The staff takes very good care of you"
Cons: "The seats are getting closer to each other and you knees touch the next seat. Also the seats are only reclining a few inches.For an international trip it's hard on your back and to be comfortable. Meals are only ok."
Pros: "Very well organized. Crew is very friendly. Lots of little perks on the flight that many other companies don't provide."
Cons: "Was forced to check my carry-on by very unaccommodating desk staff only to board the aircraft to see tons of overhead bin space..."
Pros: "Food on 1 leg of journey NY to LA was remarkably good!"
Cons: "Staff was miserable, complaining to each other which I feel need not be overheard by passengers."
Pros: "On board staff was friendly. Good entertainment system but that's about it."
Cons: "We were delayed for re-catering reasons. But there was no vegetarian option for the snack (just a chicken sandwich). I also asked for a window seat and the check in counter said it was all full. There were PLENTY of window seats. I don't appreciate being lied to. I usually select seats during online checkin for all my Qantas flights but did not have that option as I only have my mobile and there is no mobile friendly capability on the app/mobile browser. What is the point of the app?!"
Cons: "Old 747"
Pros: "Qantas Airlines really made traveling a pleasure. The little extras like, chocolate snacks, ice cream, a huge selection of entertainment, the most current navigation systems that allowed you to know and see at ever minute exactly where you were on the journey, just to name a few. I also found the staff especially pleasant. Thank you Qantas"
Cons: "Our plane home was a little older and the seats weren't as comfortable as they could have been."
Pros: "Attendants were polite; wine was nice"
Cons: "Food was awful"
