Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."

Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Cons: "nil"

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Also - who thought putting call buttons in the armrest was a good idea? We had 10 accidental calls from the people around us alone."

Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."

Pros: "The seat is narrow compare with other airlines."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"

Pros: "Sleeping did not disturb me and happy to miss meal. So polite was the crew I wish I could fly Qantas all the time."
Cons: "MIssed out on my bloody mary!"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Pros: "Quality of interior"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "warm food even on domestic flight"

Cons: "The seat space is a bit small, there is too less Chinese and Japanese movies to choose from."

Pros: "The Qantas lounge in Singapore is very nice. Nothing special relative to some others like Cathay, but lots of showers and good food are the key for a stopover, and the Qantas Lounge has that. The meal options are better out of Singapore than coming in to Singapore, The "order ahead" breakfast concept, where you place your order for breakfast when you board has it pros and cons. The personal service is nice, but one needs to know almost 12 hours ahead of time what they feel like eating. Overall a positive, but for me, it's hard for me to anticipate my appetite. It was my first A380 flight (together with the Sydney - Singapore leg), and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful."
Cons: "Mostly an issue with security, two separate very long lines. The lines are marked priority and economy, but those are not adhered to. The seats in business class are not very comfortable. I feel like I had more comfortable seats 15 years ago on BA, and the world has come a long way since then. The planned upgrades are sorely needed."

Pros: "Showing their age. Forget WiFi or USB ports. Food ok but can be vastly improved."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"

Cons: "Unnecessary delays"

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "All the services"

Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."

Cons: "Delayed!! It’s hilarious.. He didn’t arrived on time"

Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The entire staff was wonderful and friendly!! Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Cons: "We had a delay as they could not get the lift for food to put onto the plane, so we were delayed 1 hour. Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"

Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."

Pros: "Friendly Service and free drinks"
Cons: "Long flight"

Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"

Cons: "Not enough legroom or seating area... Obviously you are downsizing, hoping that people will spend more to upgrade."

Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "I fly many airlines. I had never flow Qantas before. I was expecting it to be amazing and it was not. The seats are very uncomfortable and not roomy compared to other airlines. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Gf food was good"
Cons: "Tight searing"

Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."

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: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."

Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"

Pros: "They gave us loaner strollers to get the kids through the airport. So family friendly. Food was great too."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Food: Japanese fried chicken was soggy. Economy space is cramped, and stuck next to a guy who invaded into my space and guy in front leant his seat back. Overnight flight but couldn't sleep when it was so cramped (when usually I can without problem on other flights)"

Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "I have a nut allergy and there are no nut free meal options to select prior to my flight. Worse still the attendants didn't bother to check the meal ingredients, something that was offered to me by the budget airline Fly Dubai."

Pros: "I flew over NYE and liked the complimentary sparking wine provided so we didn't miss out on the celebrations. Also food, staff and service was really good!"
Cons: "My preference is to not sit towards the back, but I couldn't check in online and there wasn't anything else available at the counter"

Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"

Pros: "The service on flight was excellent. Attendants were very helpful and professional. I was pleasantly surprised with the food, especially for an international flight. They were also very helpful with seating when it came to putting me and my partner next to each other and in seats with extra legroom (we did pay for it so I guess it was expected)"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone was HORRIBLE! I waited almost 2 hours on the phone and got NOTHING accomplished! Purchased my seats online, then got a notification saying it didn't go through. Called to fix the issue, but the man on the phone put me on hold for almost an hour! Only to accidentally put my partner and I in different rows. When I complained at the lack of professionalism from him over the phone, he offered some sort of compensation. When I agreed, he transferred me to his supervisor who said they do not compensate in any form! So why offer it then?! I then called the reservation department like I was told to, and they said they would look into the issue and call me back. This was about a month or two before my flight, and even though it's been a week after my flight, I have yet to get that call I was promised (nor the compensation). WORST PHONE CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED! As for the flight, my only complaints are the messy boarding process and the uncomfortable seats in economy. Although you can't really expect more from old planes such as these."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."

Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."

Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."

Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."

Pros: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection put on another carrier that flight then delayed arriving 4.5 hours late. Second leg frequent flyer points claim on other leg denied even though original flight qualified. Still chasing Qantas to get points."
