Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "This flight was purchased as business/first class and upon checking economy seat tickets were printed. We are NOT happy with the downgrade after American Airlines was more than happy to take our money for the higher class ticket. We would not have booked this flight as a red eye had we known we would have had economy seating. On top of which, the unseat entertainment for the row we were seated in was not working. I am usually quite happy with the American Airlines flights between Boston and LA, however this unexpected downgrade was not only surprising but extremely disappointing."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Dinner choices could be better. Slow boarding process."
Pros: "Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European."
Cons: "The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE."
Pros: "Good seat, great service. Typical quality QANTAS flight - perfect"
Cons: "Maybe the seat could have been more comfortable."
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"
Cons: "Older plane so entertainment system left a bit to be desired"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Cons: "Very good airlines"
Pros: "Although this is a small plane the seats seemed to have more room than the larger plane from Sydney to Brisbane We weren't delayed by much. The onboard snacks were nice."
Cons: "The plane from Wagga Wagga to Sydney was hot while we were waiting for take off as no air was circulated until we started to taxi."
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("
Pros: "Food was nice, could have been a little bigger. Staff were friendly ... well, except one lady."
Cons: "expected to need the Qantas entertainment app, so didn't pick up headphones from the terminal before departure. However, it was an older plane with seat back TVs (and less choice)."
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"
Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "on time, easy flight"
Cons: "overcharged for second bag"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
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."
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."
Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."
Pros: "toddler seat. Staff took care of my family and went out of their way to find us and got us situated."
Cons: "food selection"
Pros: "Smooth flight, good breakfast options, easy check-in, flight was on time."
Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"
Pros: "The crew was lovely and fairly attentive in business class. I had access to the First Class lounge in Sydney and it is wonderful. Even has a spa, though don't expect first class spa treatment. Uh, plane was clean and food was ok, but getting a cocktail was difficult."
Cons: "Business class seats are uncomfortable and there is nowhere to store and easily access something as simple as a book. There is a storage compartment on the seat in front of you, which you cannot reach without getting out of your seat.. While the seats do go flat, it's not something you can sleep on your side for long. Ended up reclined and sleeping on my back, which is not ideal. accessing my reservation was impossible and had to call Australia to get a seat assignment, which was reassigned by the time we checked in anyway. I care where I sit and book early to have choices. I hate to say it but I was not impressed."
Pros: "Very comfortable business class seat, great business lounge in Singapore."
Pros: "Loved the crew, very friendly and helpful. Liked having my own tv screen on the back of the seat. Food was great."
Cons: "Wish there was more leg room and ability to lie down. It was a 12-13 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."
Cons: "I landed in Sydney but had a Qantas connecting flight to Melbourne. The baggage was checked in at Dallas thru to Melbourne. You need to drop off the baggage back to Qantas after clearing Customs in Sydney. Unfortunately Qantas makes you walk quite a long distance to to baggage drop off point. The experience made me think of experiences I have had in developing countries. I expected more thoughtful logistical arrangements from Qantas in Australia."
Cons: "I was right by the toilets"
Pros: "Crew were outstanding. Great service, attention to detail and simply better than I have experienced in the past 10+ years travelling Business. Well done!"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
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: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "Poor food not a proper meal on a 12 hour flight neither outbound nor return. IFE outdated"
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: "I got a great deal on this flight, I will look to KAYAK For all my travel needs."
Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Food: tasty,noise: minimal"
Cons: "Space: legroom minimal, seats: not comfy"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well"
Cons: "Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people"
Cons: "We booked two vegan meals at the time we purchased plane tickets but the crew said they couldn't find our meal reservation, and didn't seem to care much that all they could offer us on a 14-hour flight was a couple fruit cups. Additionally, we had to land in Brisbane to refuel due to the "fog" in Sydney -- I checked other flights into Sydney later in the day and none others were re-routed due to fog -- which added almost 2 hours to our flight."
