Airline reviews

Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."

Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"

Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."

Cons: "Boarding is a gong show. Not very clear signage for premium line so there’s always a ton of people jamming up the queue"

Pros: "The business class attention, and the quietness of an A380"
Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"

Cons: "1. Food option ran out quickly 2. The row I was sitting in had limited leg room (61)"

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "A crew member saw that I was crying upon departure and left a stack of tissues in the seat next to me. Then the crew member checked on me later to make sure I was ok. It was very nice and touching."
Cons: "My chicken was raw in my lunch."

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'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: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."

Pros: "Great service, easy flight."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Flight ran on time Cabin staff good"
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for normal sized person Food choice poor Maybe seat backs could be fixed in place (as in the US)"

Cons: "Flight attendants and staff were extremely rude and condescending"

Pros: "Great staff and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Flight was almost 1 hr behind."

Pros: "Seriously, in all my years of flying this was the best experience I've ever had - and that includes comparing my Economy ticket at Qantas to previous First Class flights with Delta and US Air. Very coordinated, very well setup and prepared. The stewards were wonderful. Food and service outstanding through the entire 13hr flight."
Cons: "My seat screen did not work, but I was ok with that as I had a charged iPad with me."

Pros: "Staff was very helpful and everything moved quickly and on time!"
Cons: "The arm rest next to mine would not stay in the upright position. That is the biggest problem I had."

Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were quite excellent. I appreciate that Qantas still makes available a toothbrush and muesli bars, tho the selection of in-flight snacks has been greatly reduced."
Cons: "Seating is far too tight - of course, Qantas is not the only one guilty of this. If there were a true emergency, evacuating the plane would be nightmarish under the "packed-in" scenario we are faced with these days."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"

Pros: "i wanted to add a bag to my itinerary but 3rd party didnt get back to me in time and i couldnt afford to upgrade at the airport. a little disapointed, probably wont go 3rd party again ."
Cons: "i wanted to add a bag to my itinerary but 3rd party didnt get back to me in time and i couldnt afford to upgrade at the airport. a little disapointed, probably wont go 3rd party again ."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Fast and reliable. Grand cup of tea too. Would recommend and would fly again. Different Safety demo got my attention."

Pros: "Lots of room plane not full. LUCKY !!!! Crew helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Took a while for me to figure out audio media system ??"

Pros: "The Wide Body 747, the friendliness of the Crew. The Food and Entertainment was Excellent Embarking and Disembarking was Fast and Orderly"
Cons: "Turbulence along the Route"

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: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."

Pros: "Not enough food"

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."

Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."

Pros: "Spacious, good food, attentive flight. I would fly again if I can sit closer up. Very generous and gave us a 20 dollar food and drink voucher because our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for 45 min before they let us out. The flight was delayed for about 2 hrs but they let us out and gave us a voucher to spend. We sat in row 73 from Sydney to SFO and it was really hot, the AC didnt really kick in. It was uncomfortable. But it did finally got colder. It just took a long time."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and supportive. The premium economy meal was excellent."

Pros: "I got a great deal on this flight, I will look to KAYAK For all my travel needs."

Cons: "I went to the counter to check in 1 hour before the flight (at around 6am), and the counter has already closed. The lady at the counter said that we had to check in at least 3 hours before the flight, which is a lie. I asked if there is anything she can help re-schedule, and she simple refused to help in anyway. I am very disappointed on the service of Quanta airline."

Pros: "The flight was early into Brisbane! The attendants were friendly and helpful and the food was good."

Cons: "I missed my flights due to thief in my hotel.. Devastated because I couldn't get a refund and I'm on a Disability Pension.. This is my one & only trip each year to see my children & grand children.. I can't go now.."
