EVERYTHING

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"
Pros: "Fast checking and good service on board"
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Short flight, but they fed us great food, great service, even good wine."
Pros: "Good crew, efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "1. The entertainment system had good choice, but screen resolution wasn't as good as recent flights with Lufthansa, SIA, Malaysia Airlines and AirNZ 2. Nowhere near enough toilets in the middle of the cabin, had to queue over 20 minutes 3. The announcement said water refill stations - where?"
Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized and confusing."
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: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Pros: "I was very surprised that a short domestic flight offered a free drink and dinner service."
Cons: "My only fault was that they didn’t offer a non meat option on their selection."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."
Pros: "good"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Cons: "Regarding Qantas flight 568 on March 11, 2018, from Perth to Sydney: the plane was old, extremely filthy, and falling apart."
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Pros: "The flight was perfect, good leg space in economy, food was good both breakfast and dinner, even snacks were available during the flight."
Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Pros: "Customer service...very helpful and accommodating. Good food. Easy transfer from domestic to international. On one of our flights, a 39 minute one, they served a substantial snack (yogurt, breakfast biscuits, oj) and tea, coffee, etc. Amazing in that amount of time!"
Cons: "I tried to think of something but I couldn’t."
Pros: "Very professional, nice crew, smooth flight. Loved the tail outside camera. Had fun watching that. Very enjoyable for such a long flight."
Cons: "Wasn’t thrilled that only salmon salad was left as a choice for dinner. Hubby can’t do salad, and I can’t do fish. Crew brought us some snacks."
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was very poor and the entertainment was awful. The touch screen barely worked and the sound system was hard to listen to. I was forced to use the airline headphones. I was always losing sound."
Pros: "Looking out the window."
Cons: "Flight changed from an A330 to a B737 perhaps as Resukt if the public holiday"
Pros: "Entire flight there was no comfort- crew was brash and unfriendly -"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."
Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"
Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Awesome service!"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "We were two hours late taking off because of mechanical glitches. We missed our original connection and our baggage was lost on our additional flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and refused to give me another bottle of water although this was a 15 hr flight. She should really retire. The flight was delayed, which extended the whole trip by several hours. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant enough"
Cons: "Boarded about 40 mins late (understandable but still a negative), entertainment system didn't work at all the entire flight for anyone except Business Class, and the food portion (dinner apparently) was miniscule. I was starving by the time I disembarked."
Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Service was pleasant. Entertainment selections were quite nice -- great to have so many movies and music from which to choose."
Cons: "Dinner portions were insufficient -- a tiny box of food, though delicious, left me feeling hungry. Legroom was cramped -- As a 6'2" (188 cm) man, I always have request aisle seating but was given a middle row seat. These should be reserved for shorter passengers only who do not require many ups and downs from their seats during the flight. No one should have to pay to choose a seat ahead of time! Except Qantas, I've never seen an airline charge to choose a regular, non-premium seat. That is ridiculous to charge $30, especially when the airfare was over $1300."
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Pros: "The space and comfort was excellent"
Cons: "Just wanted a few more snacks during the flight. Apart from that everything else was superb."
Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."

Because I upgraded to business class

It was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. The upgrade (premium economy) was the best idea I have ever had. I had trouble understanding all of the stewards accents so sometimes I would just nod my head yes or no and see what would happen. 🙃 The personal monitor kept me entertained. The one problem I had was getting a cup of hot water for my chamomile tea bag. It took 3 requests and 45 minutes. If that's the worst I'd say, "good job British!"

Pros: "Fast and good service"
Pros: "everything was fine. uneventful"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "The breakfast scone was disgusting but dinner was great!"
Pros: "We were early"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Sorry the attitude to help people after a cancelled flight is sucks,"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "The flight was 9hr each leg which is not baf of elder people. The food was fine. Entertainment was good. Austin to london flight was a little spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "You need to display gate information for connecting flight well in advance for thr elder people to get to the gate on time. We had the gate information displayed just 1 hour before departure. London to hyderabad flight was too cold. If the temperature was adjusted above 72 degrees it would have been appreciated. London to hyderabad flight was cramped up. Not at all spacious, my knees started to hurt after the flight."
Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Error on kayak.com resulted in me losing approx. £600 and having to take the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Pros: "Ran into some turbulence and the pilot did a great job calming down the passengers and explain the weather situation."
Cons: "food option were limited, only one meal choice left"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Cons: "1-1/2 hour late departure. Charging for coffee and tea!"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Good light supper."
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable."
Cons: "Business class seat configuration remains a problem. Meal service changes means no acknowledgment of frequent fliers with status. Meals assigned in row order so no choices left if you sit at back of business class. If your loyalty is not recognised why be loyal to BA????"
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch with few exceptions. Safe journey. Great price tag with what should have been limited connections."
Cons: "BA used to be one of my three favorite airlines, especially the international. Sat on tarmac for over 2 hours because no one thought to load luggage of a couple hundred people or de-ice the wings for the sprinkle of snowflakes that terrified London. Cancelled our first flight to London a few hours before we were to leave home and after two hours on the phone, we were instructed to cancel our remaining flights and purchase a connecting flight to our destination ON OUR OWN DIME with the hope BA May reimburse. Had to fly into another COUNTRY, pay for our own hotel room and transfers and got to our final destination a day later, with only crossed fingers BA will take care of some of those expenses or at very least reimburse for the cancelled flight. They Lost our luggage on the way home because of a 2-hour delay (tarmac story above^), because they involved 3 airlines in their efforts to help us connect back home. Staff and crew we saw face to face were great to help...though not all customers shared that experience as we witnessed. Administratively, based on our 2 weeks of multi-country travel with them, BA seems to have lost the ability to manage themselves. 2.5 hour flight from Rome to London has terrible service and we had to ask for water to drink. Everything else was paid...I’m accustomed to that on regionals Euro commuter flights but very surprising on a full-fledged BA plane covering that distance. So many extra inches given to the thirty folks in first and business that commoners get sardine seats across the pond to America. That being said, the seats themselves are plenty comfortable withthe exception of arm rests that do not fully position upright. BA used to make you feel incredibly fortunate to fly with them. Now, I appreciate the crew who worked very hard to make-up for such an ugly delay on the ground and in baggage and flightbmanagement. The rest left me with a migraine."
Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"
Pros: "The movie and television options were fairly good."
Cons: "I usually enjoy the BA flight from London to Austin, but this flight was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were cramped, and when the woman in front of me leaned her seat back, I didn't have enough space on my tray table to even keep a laptop fully open. The food (chicken casserole) was also terrible, and the airline ran out of other lunch options by the time they got to the back row where I was seated."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Cons: "Very big delay!!!"
Pros: "Flat bed to sleep"
Cons: "not enough Indian Movies"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"
Pros: "We arrive twenty minutes early."
Cons: "We lost a half hour because of defective equipment and had to exist the back of the plane on to the runway."
Cons: "For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid."
Cons: "The customer service I a disaster. They ripped off my suitcase and I never got a refund despite all my emails nd infos I gave them after the claim done at the airport."
Cons: "No drink"
Cons: "Short haul flights food not served and need to be purchased"
Pros: "The crew apologized for the late departure"
Cons: "We were left waiting for the technical issue to be fixe for more than an hour"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Long wait in boarding - flight was delayed"
Pros: "The duration"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The update"
Cons: "Paid extra for seats that I did not get"
Cons: "While I prefer beef to be cooked rare to medium-rare (and mentioned this) on both legs the meat was well-done and dry. This is common to many airline steaks, and may be an unavoidable consequence of the limitations of preparing food on board. (Though I have had reasonably prepared meat dishes on certain AA flights). All dishes are highly under-seasoned, but a packet of salt and paper is provided, so this is not a curial concern."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Crew diffused grumbling of passengers for delays."
Cons: "Late."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and in good humor."
Cons: "In que for boarding so long, couldn't get food or drink - hungry family!! Our flight from Rome to London in Premium Economy was disappointing. Not even the smallest snack or drink of water for free. No food available for purchase, only potato crisps. No ice for warm bottle of water purchased....come on!"
Cons: "Computer malfunction cased for tons of flight delays and cancellations making for a long and not pleasant experience"
Pros: "Check in, flight was on time"
Cons: "The time it takes for getting from 5 to 3. Almost missed my plane on the trip in."
Pros: "Flights attend"
Cons: "Movie"
Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very good"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was a little warm."
Cons: "Rude staff, messy service, lack of information and communication"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "The tannoy was difficult to hear at the airport, guess that is not the fault of the airline but it made boarding difficult. Stewardess whizzed past when offering duty free shopping on board."
Pros: "Im 55 and slightly over weight getting a middle seat when the arm rests don't raise and seats so close together was a major issue getting in and out on such a long flight and I watched other women experiencing the same issue."
Cons: "Armrests to raise up 2 to 3 inches more between seat front to back. Especially if the persons in front of you have reclined there seats"
