I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"

Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."

Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"
Cons: "The length of the flight but that's not anyone's fault!!!"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Pros: "I love Qantas and mostly fly the airline. Love the 380 airbus for long hauls."
Cons: "On this flight the attendants were very un-organised to a point of almost tripping over themselves. meal delivery over an hour apart The standard of meals seems to have dropped by a star. Not wanting to post a gloomy picture as the staff area nearly always friendly and great. These guys were also. Perhaps they were tired."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew with adequate concern for hydration of passengers. Food was very good for airline fare."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable and I was able to get much sleep on the 14 hr flight"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, crew accommodating, and amenities were great. I thought the flight would seem like forever but it didn't."
Cons: "Can't think of anything to make it better"
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Pros: "Another successful mission with QantasI like the overall experience and the way that Qantas recognise my platinum status it's always a great pleasure to fly to mystically and internationally with Qantas"
Cons: "I think the stream the in-flight entertainment is a bit of a cheat and then I should go back to providing entertainment those messages without a laptop or iPad"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The Qantas legs of the flight were their usual stellar levels."
Cons: "The Jet Airways flight was to their usual ok level. Nothing especially wrong with fit, but it was not five-star level."

Cons: "Lounge is disorganised with bad coffee"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and responsive."
Cons: "1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time."

Pros: "Very quick flight - after all the other hours spent in the air this was most welcome."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent legroom in economy - seemed to be more than the 32" stated. Also, the seat was comfortable and the food was excellent on this long flight (MEL-LAX). Overall, a better experience than any US carrier we've flown."
Pros: "Rebooked on earlier flight and it was early!"
Pros: "The crew, the food, the overall experience was positive and pleasurable - especially since it was a 14 hour flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "The seats cushions - not the width of the seats or arm rests, but the cushions themselves could use some additional padding. I used a few blankets and pillow for extra comfort but that's the only negative I can think of. Again it was a 14 hour flight. Thanks! :-)"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "way too noisy from the engines--was very draining horrible space in economy--jammed packed like cattle-this alone may cause me not to fly you again"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Liked that they boarded from front and back"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and changed to two hours later with only 5 hours notice."
Cons: "I would have liked to know about the virgin entertainment app ahead of time. By the time the captain announced the option to use the app it was too late to download."
Pros: "I didnt like anything because i didnt flight because of your shitty company that didnt tell me about my decline"
Pros: "Had to pick up my luggage and check in again, almost missed my flight. Actual time on the plane was fine."
Cons: "Seats didn't have USB charging and would like to see more recline and comfort. Also more food options to cater for dietary needs."
Cons: "In flight entertainment. Need more documentaries"
Pros: "On time. Courteous employees."
Pros: "The Virgin crew on this flight were amazing. So friendly and welcoming. Amazing!"
Cons: "There're unoccupied rows, but still pack passenger together instead of offering the empty seats to couples."
Pros: "The crew in the Melbourne airport were amazing! There was confusion with my bags and they sorted it out without any stress!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but it was a very clean plane!"
Pros: "unexpectedly about an hour into the flight an announcement came over the loudspeaker. It was something like this : Attention Attention please pull on your oxygen mask when it drops and place it firmly over your mouth and breathe calmly. I was shocked and everyone that I could see looked shocked. Then nothing. It was the announcement that you never want to hear when on an aeroplane. About 5-10 minutes later another announcement that it was an error and a wrong button had been pushed. It certainly was the wrong button to push."
Pros: "The full refund."
Cons: "Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!"
Pros: "We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option)."
Cons: "Seats on Jetstar are a bit uncomfortable but for a short flight, it doesn't matter as much. Also, the luggage went to the wrong carousel for many folks on our flight."
Pros: "The crew were amazing."
Cons: "The cost to check baggage was very high and hard to complete ahead of time."
Pros: "Was a smaller aircraft and a spacious flight"
Cons: "No complimentary food or snack or drinks!!"
Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "The check in at Melbourne. It is not straight forward and took more time than using a check n counter. Was not on time and I had to pick up someone when i got ome."
Pros: "Everything went well and was as advertised. This is a low cost carrier so their business model relies on extra charges for everything. Prepaid my luggage for $19 each way and decided not to order any food (much cheaper at the airport anyway). People just have to be aware that low cost carriers like Jetstar can offer such affordable fares by excluding many things. Qantas would have been approximately 2x as expensive per flight and would have included more things, but the appeal of low cost is to be able to choose what you need."
Pros: "Seats were clean and comfortable. Staff were lovely."
Cons: "The self check in system was a joke. Glad we weren’t in too much of a hurry. Also disregard my rating of food and entertainment as we had none on the plane."
Pros: "The lady at the check-in counter was very helpful!"
Cons: "The seat were pretty uncomfortable for a almost 4 hour flight. It felt like we were squeezed into a tuna can. Also was surprised there was not a movie playing or wifi available to pass the time on a long flight."
Pros: "Out Jetstar flight from Cairns arrived late and we had unacceptable assistance to make our connecting flight to Queenstown. Missed our flight. Rebooked ourselves for tomorrow. Cost us $1000."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "No redeeming factors with awful customer service. I missed my connecting flight due to another flight being late. As a result, I called them to notify them I would not be able to make the flight and asked to switch flights. After explaining the situation, they refused to waive the flight change fee and even charged additional fees even though I had no control of the situation. They took advantage of the situation I was forced into and have no ethics. Absolute garbage."
Cons: "See above. A terrible airline who treats paying customers with disrespect and takes advantage of the situation. I will never fly with this airline again."
Cons: "5 people checked in but didn’t show up at the gate Which made for a late take off so when we landed in Brisbane I didn’t have enough time to even get food or exchange my money as I had planned. Which in the airline industry happens often I understand just crazy how many things went wrong that day."
Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No legroom"
Pros: "Very bad entertainment food not that good. Check in at Melbourne airport very mess"
Cons: "Everything. Food not good. Entertainment very bad check in at Melbourne airport very bad. The seat of the business class are not comfortable very small not worth the price we pay"
Pros: "Smooth flight, easy interstate flight with no hassle."
Cons: "Jetstar boarding pass system is very silly. You can't use the email ones on your phone and have to actually print it out. As a suggestion.. maybe have a unified option instead? Charging sms service is ridiculous.. it is 2017!"
Cons: "On an international connection I had to collect my baggage, clear customs, and re-check for my onward trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour. Then another hour plus on the tarmac. Concerns regarding weather at destination, and not having enough fuel to divert to alternative airport- but how can you attempt to fly without enough fuel for such emergencies? Isn't that routine procedure? Poor customer service, captain stated we may have to land at airport 2+ hours flight away from original destination. All worked out in the end, despite (rather than because of) Jetstar."
Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Baggage fees, but that is to be expected now"
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Flight attendant that yanked my boarding pass out of my hand. 2d flight attendant who twice "forgot" to tell me whether she had looked for or found my luggage lock which had gotten lost when 1st flight attendant yanked my boarding pass out of my hand."
Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."
Pros: "Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates. We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time. Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket.

We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time."
Cons: "Each bag costs $50 plus there was a charge for any food or drink."
Cons: "Worst flight ever, no leg room, no free glass of water even, and got raped on luggage charges, won't fly with them again."
Pros: "Flights with direct connections that other airlines dont offer. Seats are normal for a budget airline. Just bring your own food and things to do on the plane so you dont have to pay for extras. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Variable policy on luggage. On the international flight they didn't get the weight of carry on luggage, if they did you would get a huge fine for paying for the extra weight. Better to just pay the cost ahead of time if you know you need to check luggage. Check in onto the plane is still a bit of a mess, always seems to be "every just get on" type of process."
Cons: "They look like they are offering a cheap price, but then charge you $160 NZ per bag. Only 7k allowed per carry on & they give no leeway. Don't even get complementary coffee or tea. No leg room seats are so crammed together. Take another airline you will save in the long run."
Cons: "Jet star counter at Melbourne has the WORST customer service I've ever encountered. Literally 3 employees standing around chatting while I'm trying to find someone to help with my passport not reading. Then standing at another counter waiting to be helped while being completely ignored. I understand when you're busy (even though he didn't seem busy) but at least acknowledging my presence would've been lovely. Also- baggage fees for this airline should be criminal."
Pros: "Good entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not great food for money spent on meal-$24 for 2 oz of chicken and minimal sides; also charged double to get visa to get into Australia in the fi"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good."
Cons: "For s three hour flight we weren't given anything to eat or drink, even water. You had to buy it, very poor not to offer tea/coffee/water."
Pros: "Nothing. JetStar used unethical business practices to force us to pay $160 dollars for our baggage. Usually baggage costs $13. They clearly have pulled this extortion trick on customers many times before. We were left to choose between abandoning all of our clothing and souvenirs and other possessions, or paying them an absurdly high fee. So we didn't really have much choice. F JetStar. I'll never fly with them again. If you're smart you won't either."
Cons: "Hassled at luggage check in. Had to throw out clothes and shoes to meet weight requirements as they charge $25 a kilogram for extra weight which was not disclosed when we received our confirmation. We were the only ones hassled over being a few kilos over each. Many people hand large luggage carry ons which wouldn't even fit in the luggage testers yet no one said anything to them. 90 percent of the people were easily over the 7KG weight allowance for carry on luggage and were not hassled at all. It was pure discrimination and perhaps it was because I was italian or my wife had blond hair. Who knows. I have been on hundreds of flights in my life and have never been so humiliated in my life. The blonde luggage counter and boarding ticket taker, was insulting and even insisted on seeing our australian visitors permit which is not required according to Australian customs once you have paid for it and are registered. She even tried to force my wife to check her bag even though it fit in their luggage sizing testers. Another tall lady with glasses at the luggage check in area, was also very insulting and discriminated against us. Horrible experience. Both of those people would be fired if I was running the airline. Its a service business and while I understand rules, you have to have some discretion and if your going to enforce them, they must apply to all passengers, not just 2 people out of 150!"
Pros: "Cheap flight and I felt baggage weight prices were reasonable separate. If you plan any baggage, I suggest considering buying the max up front. It's much cheaper that way and gives you flexibility since it's by weight and not bag count. Second best is anytime prior to airport. If you are overweight at the airport, you're doing it wrong. Bring your own food (I like Subway), water container, and entertainment for minimum discomfort. I would fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding in Melbourne was a mess. They would not let passengers use the gate seating so most people stood in a stupid diagonal line and blocked the terminal walkway until boarding. Also, water from a flight attendant was not free. If you fly on a 787, please go to the back of the cabin and fill a cup/bottle there. Lastly, on flight food seemed meh and overpriced."
Cons: "Had to pay a surcharge for bags that was not clear at the time of booking, was supposed to be "per bag" but the airline did us a favor and only charged us for one bag. While that seems nice, it's clear it's a bogus charge if rules don't need to be followed. One flight the baggage fee was $50, another was $160 - with these costs included they are actually more expensive than other airlines. Took an international flight and all food and drinks on the flight had to be purchased, pretty ridiculous that the airline does not include water over a three hour travel time."
Pros: "Please notify kayak customers at time of purchase the need to prepurchase the food. The flight ran out of non prepurchased food. Also, allow the kayak customer to purchase in flight entertainment at time of checkout if cheaper as it was for jetstar"
Pros: "Horrible service, rude staff, even when the plane was rerouted because of a gps issue, the staff was horrendous. Would never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Good cabin crew. Clean modern aircraft."
Cons: "When purchasing ticket through an outside website you are not advised that luggage is a $320 option when purchased at the airport. Use Jetstar website only."
Cons: "Flight was delayed - Then the Jetstar staff were ;late so a flight that was already late was delayed even further. I know you are a discount airline, but the seats are truly awful. I will never fly with you again and will tell friends and family never to either - The small saving made from flying with you is not worth the constat delays and how uncomfortable the whole journey is"
Pros: "Non Stop Flight"
Cons: "All Bad. Worst airline every"
Cons: "I did not expect to fly an international flight that I have to pay for extra luggage and your company did not put that on an options"
Pros: "The stewardesses were gorgeous. I could've waited 10 hours on the Tarmac with Natalie's beautiful smile..."
Cons: "2 hours delay, ran out of food, almost the whole operation seemed chaotic and confused. Reference number from quantas though flight was jetstar, had me on wild goose chase in unfamiliar terminal"
Cons: "The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ."
Pros: "You pay for everything extra (like most budget airlines), but the entertainment package well worth it, and Sumo salads/toasties on the menu very tasty. People who complain about luggage restrictions should be aware international travel is much more strict, and will not "look the other way" as American airlines do. Do your research, people!"
Cons: "Not notified about US requirements to fill out back of ticket, so got pulled aside at the gate to do it. Passengers included large group of obnoxious children who ran up and down aisles, chattered loudly, and disturbed other passengers. Adults who were traveling with them did nothing (if you see a group with huge bows in their hair, avoid at all costs), so flight attendants should be better about enforcing rules and keeping order."
Pros: "On time service and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "No complimentary beverage service"
Pros: "The plane is reasonably comfortable The tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Boarded late and the signs lied to the passengers saying the gate is closing Long walk to the boarding gate and no powerpoints in the gate Food is overpriced and mediocre"
Cons: "I had had to fly international as the flight originated from Japan. I had to clear customs in a special assistance line as the smart Gate didn't understand. So add 30_45 minutes to when you think you will be exciting the airport or transferring. Bring your own water and food. Nothing is complimentary or speedy. Don't bring coffee, hot liquids are not allowed. Also, make sure you booked the option with a checked bag or it's charged as excess and it's an exuberant amount."
Pros: "The staff were very good."
Cons: "I booked a seat and did not get the seat l had booked."
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 3 hours and there was no attempt to make us passengers comfortable during that time. Poor service."
Pros: "Upon check in, I was unable to proceed with checking my luggage because apparently when I booked the flight through Kayak, it did not prompt me to indicate how many bags I would be checking on this flight. On the day of the flight, it costs $160 AUD to check a bag that is 15kg! $160AUD!!! That is an insanely high amount of money to check 1 piece of luggage. For every 1kg over 15, it is an additional $25AUD. Can you believe that? The airline refused to waive the fee and blamed the 3rd party booking company (Kayak) for the oversight. They did, however, let me sit in a exit row, free of charge. This is so backwards. I would have much rather just sat in a normal seat and checked my bag for free."
Cons: "Once I boarded the flight, I was seated in an exit row, and something was leaking from the area above me. It looked like the color of coca-cola and/or urine. I called the flight attendant over to my seat once the seat-belt sign was off, and he immediately assumed that my bag in the overhead was causing the leak rather than running to bring something to clean it up and stop the leak. He kept checking the overhead luggage area when the leak was clearly coming from the air conditioning unit. The leak splattered onto my arm, book and passport. It was disgusting. I had to ask the flight attendant if I could move seats. I was not given any type of voucher for a free drink, free seat upgrade or free luggage check. Yuck. Thankfully the leak eventually stopped."
