Qantas personnel have a high opinion of themselves and don’t really like to serve the client. This is compounded by the overall experience of traveling in Australia. I get the felling that they would rather I didn’t.

For 5 hours and 1/2 they just ignore passengers needs

Fabulous crew

No changes needed. All good. Very smooth landing. 👍

Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Cons: "0"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. The entertainment options were excellent. The food and drink options were pretty good."
Cons: "Better power options (universal plugs/power)"
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Less single use plastic on the flight"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Flight was not comfortable, when seats are pushed back, there is no leg room left. Entertainment system and contents both were poor. Flight delayed by 4 hours."
Pros: "The service during the flights"
Cons: "None.."
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Pros: "Great leg room. Good food and entertainment."
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."
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."
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."
Cons: "On"
Pros: "Entertainment"
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."
Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"
Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."
Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "staff"
Pros: "I had a nice seat."
Cons: "Staff were unattentive, nasty"
Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. The pilot communicated frequently about the delay. Efforts were made to connect passengers to their missed connections."
Cons: "Several of the flight attendants were rude. The food was not good. I should have known since the flight attendant serving me had not tried any of the options and couldn't recommend any to me. The plane does not have enough bathrooms for the number of passengers."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and filled my water bottle through the night. Seat was comfortable and the movies were good."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. I wasn’t offered dessert. No one offered to put the mattress pad on my chair."
Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."
Cons: "Food and service was appallling. ... an insult to be assed a Lindt choc (1) ... by hand."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Gracious flight attendants. Gluten free meals were good too."
Cons: "Only wish they had WiFi on the plane."
Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Still cramped esp when front seat reclines. Seats are very uncomfortable by end of flight."
Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."
Pros: "Very professional, nice crew, smooth flight. Loved the tail outside camera. Had fun watching that. Very enjoyable for such a long flight."
Cons: "Wasn’t thrilled that only salmon salad was left as a choice for dinner. Hubby can’t do salad, and I can’t do fish. Crew brought us some snacks."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Chargers in all the seats, great movies, great food."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Crew is great and helpful!"
Cons: "Delay was long. Instructions on re-booking was dodgy. Luggage took for ever to come up and it caused alot of anxiety for many people. Some customers got "Express Passes" due to tight connections and some didn't. General confusion among Quantas' ground staff."
Pros: "Everything! Best Airline!"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Cons: "No any explanation to delayed about 2 hours that resulted in missing the connected flight for more than 10 hours."
Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "Excellent"
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: "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 am blind and travel alone. The special assistance Qantas offers is outstanding. Each crew member I interacted with both on board and on the ground were attentive, respectful, helpful, and just warm and lovely overall."
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and beverage service."
Pros: "The seats are great in 380 compared to 777 - I'm 187cm and I can stretch out Food seems to be improving - breakfast wasn't soggy!"
Cons: "Crew service is slack as usual, and hasn't improved much - you have to ask for everything - breakfast they forgot the coffee - had to ask, second drink before evening meal - forget it they are just too busy - all 23 of them! On Cathay or Singapore or even United - they help as much as they can."
Pros: "The gate counter gentleman was fantastic. I was seated at the window and I had lost my compression socks on the flight just a couple days before so I wanted to be able to get up and stand without climbing over a passenger. Since I am over 60 years of age, I asked if there was an opportunity in the very back to have an empty seat next to me. Me did find me one and I TOTALLY appreciated it. I used to have the status to have the better seats and it was hard to lose that...this was wonderful. Thanks for making me feel valued."
Cons: "The communication while we were awaiting the delay due to thunderstorm. We did get 2 updates, but I feel over communication better than under ;)"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely professional. My seat was very comfortable. The food was very good and the portion size exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Pros: "All was perfect!"
Cons: "Overall, flawless"
Cons: "Clean"
Cons: "The breakfast could have been more substantial than just a muffin. But everything else was very good!"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Delay caused missed flight. Staff did not accomidate efficiently. Ended up on a much later flight and was treated unfairly."
Pros: "The flight was nice crew was nice"
Cons: "The fact it took three calls to get chair to the gate my knees and back is not good.. Some places on a flight the airline took one call few min chair was there this was the longest I had to wait and get someone to call and call"

Cons: "Wi fi didn't function on my section of the plane"
Pros: "I slept most of the way"
Cons: "They were out of the crackers & cheese snack"
Cons: "I had a basic economy seat. Even though I had seat 7D I was zone 5 to board. Because I was basic I was not permitted to bring a bag. I wasn't able to check in. I had to go to the desk to prove I didnt have a bag to check. When I got on the plane because I was zone 5 there wasnt any space above for my personal item and the staff was rude and unhelpful. Never again."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly and crew was very nice."
Pros: "Great flight attendants. Nice plane. Left early."
Cons: "You have taken the enjoyment of flying first class to a whole new low with the new seats they have designed and put in. The lack a privacy from the cabin as well as the design in how the seat is set, comfort and utility of the seat - my tray table didn't even function. It was an expensive 4 hour flight that was not comfortable ..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, customer service was useless."
Cons: "I was seated right behind first class. While still on the runway and for about the first 15 minutes of flight, There was literally a few frozen water drops, condensation I guess, dripping down on me because it was like a walk-in cooler. I asked for a blanket and the flight attendant said they were for first class only. He did then get me one and said "I had one left." Obviously a lie... but I was grateful for the blanket at that point because I was very cold. Other than that it was a fine flight and check-in was a breeze online."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed don't like the fact that sleeping in the airport don't accommodate hotel for passenger"

Cons: "We were 3 hrs delayed getting out of RDU because a 'test button' wasn't working. Missed my original connecting flight and the two connecting flights they had me on standby for. got to ohare, the united customer 'service' rep said "there are no more flights to Madison today - I don't even have to look. If you want to get there today, you need to go get on the bus". They didn't even offer to pay for the bus ticket ! Just rude and no customer 'service' at all !"
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "On time. Service was good"
Pros: "It's good flight, get on time"
Pros: "Not bad overall. I was exhausted at one point and passed out in my chair. I would have missed my flight if the gentleman boarding people hadn't noticed and woke me up to ask if I should be on the flight. I was out so deeply that I hadn't heard any announcements. There wasn't any food on the three flights but a cookie waffle thing and that was all I had during the 13ish hours I was on planes. The staff was super awesome and nice. Space wasn't any different than other planes, but tight on the first flight. I got lucky on the last two."
Cons: "I was starving and literally dehydrated. I was so thirsty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a few times , learned once i got to the airport flight was delayed .. and delayed 2 more times while on the plane .... They didnt know which way the bags were located ...(baggage claim or at the door way of exit of the plane )"

Pros: "The way home"
Cons: "The way to NC. Flight attendant rude."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Cons: "We had to sit and wait for a while because nobody picked up the captain and co-pilot at their hotel. There was no AC in Raleigh while we were waiting, so the plane got pretty hot. The captain said "they should've known this plane has no AC and hooked up the external power, and I apologize". It wasn't great."

Cons: "Pilot landed us very hard in good weather."

Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Pros: "this flight was only an hour long but it was enjoyable. made it home earlier which is always great. I like having only two seats on each side rather than 3."
Cons: "as short as the flight was, there were a few disturbances. first, the two kids behind me were off the wall. it wasn't a baby crying, they had to be 5 and 7 just screaming and being so loud when their parents just laughed. at 8pm It would have been nice for a crew to quiet them down. second, there was a disturbance by a woman who had to be escorted off the plane which caused us to sit not knowing anything going on for the extra 20 minutes on the runway. I'm so glad they got her off for our safety but we were in the dark about the situation. And United, you need to up your snacks."
Pros: "All was very good"
Cons: ". Before boarding they said flight was full and there wouldn't be enough room in overhead compartment, so I checked in my carry all. After landing I expected to pick it up as we exited the plane and was told it was on the carousel ."

Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Pros: "On time"
