Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Free checked Bags"
Cons: "If we could have a free select seat after booking."
Pros: "Not confortable at all! I was in the middle seat in the center of the plane and hD to get up every time people had to use the restroom. I could not sleep at all in the 14 hour flight - not to mention after a 6 hour delay - with poor communication on what the delays were all about. 4 different times the flight was delayed with no explanation. I liked nothing about this overpriced, under served flight."
Cons: "6 hours delayed in Sydney and nobody was telling us what was going on. I got sick while waiting, and was in a lot of pain all the way home. Also i had to pay $304 change fee to change my flight to Sydney to SFO from the original Melbourne to LAX To SFO thinking since I was coming home from Sydney I could change to a direct flight to SFO and get home early, but it took about 6 hours later because of the delay and I lost $304 in change fees even though I booked the fight via reward mileage and gave up 80,000 miles for this flight, and on top of that, when I changed the Sydney to SFO flight the system would not let me change my seat and I was booked in the middle of the plane in the middle in a 4 person row with 3 seats on the right and 3 on the left. I always fly in the window seat to help me sleep easier and not have to get up every time someone had to use the restroom. This was a 14 hour flight and I got no sleep at all and the 6 hour delay killed me. This was an awful experience and I don’t believe the $304 charge was worth it considering I paid 80,000 miles + taxes. I am complaining to executive management all the way to the top about this terrible expensive poor experience."
Pros: "Great flight, service, food and crew."
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"
Pros: "Good entertainment, tasty food, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "The seats were really cramped"
Cons: "Wifi was horrible. Selection of movies was weak."
Pros: "CREW WAS HELPFUL AND OBLIGING."
Cons: "IT WAS AN OVERNIGHT FLIGHT FROM DARWIN TO MELOURNE. THE 'SNACK' OF 2 PORK BOA BUNS AND JUICE/TEA/COFFEE OR AN APPLE AND SOME CRISPS, WAS POOR AND COULD DO WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT. RATHER UNSATISFACTORY."

Pros: "All as expected."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant."
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"

Pros: "fast trip from japan all ontime quick boarding and unloading"
Cons: "the food main meal on an australian airline consisted of meal a) sushi etc b)Japanese style chicken and boiled rice (chicken thigh full of fat and sauce was greasy) could not eat c)pasta twists with dried up sauce (could not eat) very poor quality food will bring my own next time no plain option"

Cons: "Nothing. It was a great flight."
Cons: "I paid extra to pick a seat so I can sit with my friends and once I boarded the plane I realized it had been changed. So I spent $60 for nothing. Why charge for seat assignment if it will change??!!"
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: "Everything went well. boarding and check in."
Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."
Pros: "Overall a good flight"

Cons: "food wasn't good"
Pros: "The sitting arrangements was great"
Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."
Cons: "One stewardess said I could fill in an empty bulkhead seat (Row 50) after we were airborne and the seat belt sign was off. So I moved, to be removed by Sarah (stewardess) and put back in Tow 75. Then she put two of her friends in Row 50. When I walked up later to get my bag, there was still an empty Row 50 seat, but her friiends’ purses were in the seat, and they reluctantly removed the items when I insisted to sit there. Sarah should have left me in Row 50 and not made me move back to 75."
Cons: "Food was awful."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Cons: "An hour late"
Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "I like the A380 plane, the respect that the crew provide, the quality of the food, and the variety of entertainment"
Cons: "I would loike more music concerts on the entertainment system"
Pros: "I'm not sure the reason I wasn't able to change my food selection on QANTAS, but the site never allowed me. I bought the flight thru Justfly.com"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."
Cons: "Seats too cramped and very difficult to get in and out of when the seats in front recline.” Dreadful mid flight snack."
Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "The staff on board were very kind."
Cons: "Being delayed 3 1/2 hours...but at least now I know the ' friends' I traveled w/aren't the people I though they were. Their American Airlines flight was on time. They arrived at LAX at 6:30 a.m. By the time I landed at 10, they were already home. Without me."
Pros: "Crew were great and service was polite"
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable...need more lumbar support and not much leg room but plane was not crowded so it was ok for the four hour flight"

Pros: "Easy check in on line and at baggage check in at Nadi, landing was good, the fact that we made it safely was also good, great crew - I felt sorry for them too!"
Cons: "Screaming kids, I had one kicking the back of my seat pretty much the whole trip, as well as throwing tantrums (I know this isn't the fault of the airline but the crew could've helped a tad more - can't blame them for not wanting to go near them though I didn't want to be seated in front oft them either!!!) No tv for inflight entertainment, meal very average, they ran out of one of the choices early on (probably the only good choice!), landing was good…very relieved to arrive!"

Pros: "The booking process was incompetent One could not stand next to ones seat in bus. class. The toilets were poorly designed. Food was poor"

Pros: "Crew are good and seat is comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was like a fire drill. Seemed unorganized."

Cons: "Felt Cheap. Not even an entertainment center and no one on flight could make the app download or work."
Pros: "I like Virgin Australia -- luggage allowances are generous and it's nice to have a snack."
Cons: "Flight was late, snack was not nearly as nice as on my previous trip (little crunchy snacks instead of cheese & crackers), they didn't want to serve hot drinks but offered no caffeinated substitute (in my opinion, if they are going to halt hot beverage service due to turbulence, they should offer free soft drinks instead, or at least free beer & wine since that would have been offered anyway if the flight had been on NSW time). Nothing major, just not as great as my previous experience with this airline."
Pros: "Efficient flight"
Cons: "Surly check in staff."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and we arrived safely and timely."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment was broken."
Cons: "Crew was rude and discriminatory with Passports, for 18 hours stay layover I had to sit in chairs,. Not hotel or Lounge provided. Which is against international laws."
Pros: "Leave and Arrived on time"
Pros: "Economy X was excellent value for getting 3 seats between 2, best I've ever slept in economy. Plane was late arriving before departure so boarding was late but we did leave and arrive on time. As I had an upset stomach the crew were nice enough to give me extra crackers and it was no hassle getting me herbal tea."
Cons: "Would be nice to have onboard entertainment included"
Pros: "There was no clear indication that we were not allowed to check any bags. We had to check 2 bags at $230. Not impressed wth how this went. I’ll be booking direct next time."
Pros: "Can't complain at all with Virgin's A380"
Cons: "No hot drink. Only small amount of water."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Never ever EVER book thru byo jet. Business breakfast was shocking obviously budget driven not presentation nor taste. Who declared that Arab cheese was consumable. Never book thru BYO jet"

Pros: "Good boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Seat and legroom"
Cons: "I could not check in, my e-ticket was deemed voided. Called BYOJet, could not fix. Got full refund because 100% not my fault."
Pros: "Uneventful flight but only drinks and not even a snack! Qantas fed us a meal on the way to New Zealand"
Cons: "I thought I had read all the fine print properly for baggage allowed but apparently not. NZ 130 charged at the airport for a checked bag. Ridiculous! And not even a snack for the flight from New Zealand to Australia. This is something else that is not obvious on t I booking."
Cons: "Has it really come down to this To the Vegan that put this on the menu as the snack for the masses do you really find this appropriate"
Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"
Pros: "service was great."
Cons: "problem with foot rest falling to ground under weight of legs/feet"

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late"
Pros: "Staff where great, plane was clean, and we left on time"
Cons: "Seats are tight"

Cons: "There is no negative with this airline from ground crew to air flight attendants"
Pros: "Clean uniforms. Young staff."
Cons: "Price did not include luggage at all. Paid over $200 for luggage and no offer to assist disabled (I had open surgery two months prior). So told to check in all bags with their inflated prices."
Pros: "The leg room in the seats was great. Also the attendants attitude has led me to rate my trip 5 stars"
