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: "The crew could be less curt and more engaging. Coming from Guest Services in hospitality, leisure and tourism it is obvious that body language and sincere engagement stands out. That wasn’t the case for the Qantas flight."
Cons: "I was unable to checkin or select seats. Understandably this is governed by immigration laws and not airlines but on three attempts I was able to pay for the seats without a receipt only to learn later that the charge did not go through. A little bit of transparency never costs anyone."
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."
Cons: "I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings."
Pros: "Crew were nice and entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Flight was 1hr 40 minutes late and had to catch a bus to the end of the airport to even board. As well as shared terminal gates..."
Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"
Pros: "Amazing food and entertainment."
Cons: "I’ve been on more comfortable plane seats."
Cons: "Best flight ever all time"
Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."
Pros: "I had to change flights to LA."
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: "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."
Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."
Pros: "Singapore airline best for Australia"
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Pros: "Efficient loading & unloading. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were way too close together!!"
Pros: "Liked the food, flight attendants, entertainment and overall comfort even though it's just economy. You just have to come prepared with what you need to stay entertained and comfortable ie snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, jacket or sweater, pillow, headphones, music. Better of you can bring your own headphones that use bluetooth and headphone jack cable."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic at best and starts 20 minutes before take off. It works but it's very chaotic for economy passengers. I am sure it's much easier and nicer for premium economy and business select and first class passengers so you get what you pay for lol."
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"
Cons: "Food - too institutional. Bread over cooked, meats tough so couldn’t eat more than half of any meal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed flight without any explanation. Unable to check in on phone. Checking into this flight at the airport took over 2 hours. Hated everything."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great. Boarding was quick and easy. Luggage came out quickly at lax and they gave us express connect cards to make our next flight."
Cons: "Individual lights should be smaller and more direct. Person behind us had on whole flight - no sleeping for anyone near us. Flight leaves at 1115. Means you travel through the day and arrive in la in the am. If you didn't get to sleep it's torture. Also flight attendants put on full lights to serve breakfast 3 hours before flight landed! Which was around midnight to the passengers body clocks. United and virgin let passengers sleep"
Pros: "the size of the aircraft and leg room in coach."
Cons: "I had ordered a special meal which was never delivered. I also don't like the weight restriction for carryon luggage. I got from the US to Australia without my luggage weighted and carried it on, but on my return to the US was told I had to check it. DO NOT like checking luggage."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Pros: "on time friendly team comfy seats"
Cons: "Coach food is typically not good, but I've had a few coach experiences that were impressive. GOOD is a good rating for their good for coach."
Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"
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: "The flight attendants we're really fun and the food is great!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there wasn't a lot of communication about it."
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."
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: "Excellent people who made the flight very nice. Extremely personable."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
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)"
Pros: "Good meal - pasta"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Could use a better description of chicken dish. Did not say that it was curry flavors"
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."
Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and they serve free meals! Entertainment system is excellent when it works though the supplied headphones are not the best."
Cons: "Flight was little late because of a small delay."
Pros: "Best price for derect flight. Crew was pleaant , food was ok. Would fly same flight again."
Pros: "The food was great along with the movies. Everything went smoothly and made it home no problems."
Pros: "It was a safe and clean flight. We left BNE an hour late (due to late plane arrival form SYD) but landed on time."
Cons: "I have always been a fan of Qantas but I do not recall your food offerings to be this bad from my last flight in 2012. It is less than meh. Most passengers relied on inflight entertainment system (I preloaded my iPad Pro with what I wanted to watch). The system was down most of the flight. They finally got it back after consulting with the ground tech support and rebooting it many times. This impacted most people's experience."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Wasn't too crowded"
