Airline reviews

Cons: "Waited 55 minutes for baggage claim in Auckland. No reason given. I expect better service from Air New Zealand even though I understand the baggage handler’s are different group"

Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"

Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"

Pros: "great seats + wifi. Was treated like a human being."

Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."

Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."

Cons: "Generally ok for econ"

Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Pros: "Great customer service. We flew on Air New Zealand and United, and the contrast was big. ANZ stewards showed much higher level of pride in serving their passengers."

Pros: "The crew was great and the Hawaiian fruit drinks were a great introduction to Hawaii."

Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing stands out as great or bad."

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"

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Pros: "Great crew, food, lots of free wine"
Cons: "Nothin"

Cons: "Better power options (universal plugs/power)"

Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."

Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."

Cons: "I paid extra to pick a seat so I can sit with my friends and once I boarded the plane I realized it had been changed. So I spent $60 for nothing. Why charge for seat assignment if it will change??!!"

Pros: "Good food and snacks. Great boarding and off boarding experience. Appreciated the help by Qantas ground crew who helped me with my wheelchair in Sydney."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable economy seating. Crew came by infrequently but were attentive when they came."

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

Cons: "I missed my flight. My flight from Melbourne with Qantas was delayed. I received an express connection ticket to go through Immigration, customs, etcetera. I ran, all for nothing. I should have known better, for sure. 2 hours is unrealistic. But this tickets shouldn't be offered, they give the impression that you can make it. And the staff in Melbourne, and the crew on the plane, all were extremely reassuring. I got to the gate of Alaska Airlines, the people there could only offer me a ticket two days later. And basically they said it was Qantas fault. Having almost no time and no clear way to communicate with Qantas (the 1800 number is useless), I had to book and pay a new ticket. Now I am going to try to contact Qantas for reimbursement but I am not optimistic. In summary, do not buy these types of tickets "in collaboration" with two companies. Especially if you make the connection in the US. It is a scam. 2 hours is no time. And even if you have 3 or 4 hours and there is a delay, you are basically on your own, and the companies give the responsibilities to each other."

Pros: "This flight was pretty roomy since I had a whole row to myself."
Cons: "When I checked in there were 2 employees behind the counter ignoring the line of people dropping off checked bags and 1 employee actually working to take checked bags. This is the third time in a row that this has happened on a Qantas flight for me."

Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Excellent seat comfort & entertainment options. Food was average."
Cons: "No vegetarian meal options"

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"

Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."

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

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food choices, great service."

Pros: "."
Cons: "Crew kept skipping over me and trying to laugh it off. Annoying and unprofessional"

Cons: "Seats are old and small. Not worth the cost of business class ticket. Dreamliner a million times better than a380"

Pros: "Pleasant, clean & comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."

Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."

Pros: "I had a nice seat."
Cons: "Staff were unattentive, nasty"

Pros: "Staff of Quantas was helpful getting us on the plane after Emerites suspended our tickets We had to pay for a second set of tickets at a higher price on the day of our flight Lucky we made the flight"
Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Great choice of entertainment. Served good food often with nice menu selection. Seats a bit tight as with all airlines. Fruit was fabulous and fresh - there were none left when I requested mine, but the flight attendant said there may be some left from other servers. Within a few minutes, she did bring one which I was thankful as I didn’t care for the other selection."
Cons: "Close seats especially when others recline, but we were lucky on this flight no one did as it wasn’t a full flight so people moved around."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, little to no turbulence, all around a great flight!"
Cons: "When seat in front of you is reclined it takes away a lot of your personal space and makes it impossible to get up to go to bathroom"

Pros: "Checking in was quick, fast through security, very enjoyable visit to the Qantas Lounge and off to board. Boarding was fast, the service was pleasant and the flight right on time."
Cons: "If I must be critical the onboard screens are a bit difficult to control. But fine for a short flight."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The 3 Hour Delay in Sydney!!!"

Pros: "I like ice cream (TipTop icecream). It was okay and much better then meal. The dark chocolate after meal was also good."
Cons: "I didn't like food in flight. I don't eat beef and the other option was not tasteful."

Pros: "Excellent flight on all counts. The staff was extremely responsive to the passengers' needs. The food was marvelous. The entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not many people on plane. Excellent food & staff couldn't do enough for you."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 2 hours with little information as to what the Elat was for. Seat mechanisms in premium economy not working effectively. Water dripping from above as plane started. Things the planes need a good overhaul!"

Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

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: "Service and food where good"
Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly, food was great and the wide variety of entertainment offered made the 16+ hour flight go by quickly"
Cons: "Only downside was fellow travelers being inconsiderate."

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"
Cons: "No dairy and gluten free option"

Pros: "Smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "The egg salad sandwich."

Pros: "Fortunately for me my wife had to cancel her return flight in the last minute so seat was ok"
Cons: "Type of seats not comfortable. Even MD380 seats were better"

Pros: "Helpful staff, good vegetarian foods"

Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."

Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."

Cons: "You cannot choose and secure your seat. I was not given the seats I was assigned at the time of booking. The food on quantas is also bad. Moreover, the flight attendants left the food in front of us for nearly An hour after service. I ultimately, in order to use the bathroom, had to remove my own tray."

Cons: "The attitude of the crew towards passengers with children. They made us wake up our sleeping child because she was on a blow up cushion that obstructed her leg space. Even though we explained it could be deflated in a single second and was not causing harm to anyone else they still made us move it. Also, they gave us a guilt trip for changing a peepee diaper in our seat (careful not to touch any seats) and wouldn't take the trash. As any parents knows, changing a diaper in an airline bathroom is one of the most unsanitary and awful things you can do with your young child due to the extreme lack of space. Airlines in general should make a "family bathroom" with more space for parents to change their kids."

Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "More leg space on the economy seats, It makes you wish you could afford the upgrade to business class."

Cons: "Flights to & from Sydney to Melbourne were ok!"

Pros: "Much better than any airline in the states."
Cons: "A few more trash pickups from the crew. I had a few times I was left holding trash."

Pros: "No intermediate stop"
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable, very noisy toilette"

Pros: "The crew members were very nice and easy going."
Cons: "The flight took off 25 minutes late. The boarding started later than it should have and took way too long. The airport was understaffed from the security point to the boarding point. That was surprising how in smooth both of those processes were based on seamless experiences at the same airport"

Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"

Pros: "It was clean and spacious."
Cons: "I wish entertainment and/or snacks were provided."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Not much"

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!"

Cons: "It's like traveling on Spirit in the USA...you have to pay for everything"

Cons: "The queue at the Queenstown airport was an hour long to be processed. Many more people were behind us and an agent at the counter left with many standing in the queue behind. Too long of s wait!"

Cons: "For some reason my bags were not checked all the way to the final destination, which caused problems later"

Pros: "food"
Cons: "delay"

Pros: "I did like the price of airfare. The aircraft was clean."
Cons: "No legroom, no complementary snacks or drink. No entertainment."

Pros: "Travel good"
Cons: "There was a delate"

Cons: "Got charged $120 at the gate as my bags were 7.5kg not 7kg. Blatant money grab."

Pros: "Overall great experience"

Pros: "Nothing in the service that would warrant any positive discussion"
Cons: "Upon attempting to checkin online, Jetstar indicated that checkin had to be undertaken at the Queenstown airport. No prompt was provided to indicate that baggage registration and payment would have to be handled via the general website, in spite of being denied the ability to checkin online. To our surprise, we faced a $75/bag checkin fee at the airport, being told registration of baggage at the airport would face a premium fee. Unfair or what...?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "90 minute wait in check in line"

Cons: "The baggage fees ended up costing $100 more than the flight.... I guess this is a lesson in reading the fine print!? Seems like Kayak and Jetstar could have been a lot more forthcoming. Methods seem predatory and I will avoid Jetstar in future. I feel ripped off!"

Pros: "Nothing, whole dealings was disappointing."
Cons: "Baggage fees not included in flight cost. Baggage fees was costly. They didn't even offer free water on the flight."

Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service was terrible. The entire experience was really incredibly disappointing. I will never book Jetstar again."
Cons: "They charged me the price of my ticket because my carry on weighed too much. The staff was very rude!"

Pros: "It's a flight that takes you where you want to go. Nothing more."
Cons: "7kg carry on limit. But I paid ahead of time for my suitcase knowing this."

Cons: "I had to pay $160 for luggage. I didn't want to check it, I wanted to carry on my backpack and small luggage case. Didn't realize BOTH had to be below 7 kg which is absolutely nothing. The check in man was rude and definitely could've helped a backpacking student as myself out... the flight was practically empty I don't think weight of luggage mattered!"

Cons: "Who knows the weight of the bag ahead of time. Should allow for bags to be check day of without penalty."

Cons: "Worst airline experience in my 40 years of travel"

Pros: "Nothing. They are a bunch of criminals."
Cons: "They are a bunch of criminals. They stole $320 from us in baggage fees, just because we didn't check in online. THIS WAS MENTIONED NOWHERE ON THEIR WEBSITE OR DURING BOOKING OR IN EMAILS THEY SENT BEDORE THE FLIGHT. They are a cheap criminal airline and I will never fly with them again."

Pros: "The flight is like Southeast Airlines, so don't expect any entertainment or special features. The ride was a bit bumpy, but the plane handled the conditions well. The flight was for only 2 hours and 48 minutes. We didn't get anything to eat unless you paid for it; the food didn't look that appealing to me. Overall, I just happy to be in Australia safely."
Cons: "No entertainment or good service."

Pros: "Our airline didn't inform us that we needed a visa for our over night flight layover !"
Cons: "We had plans and accomidations made for whenwe touched down in Sydney ! But unfortunately the airline we booked with didn't inform us or set us up with our visa !"

Pros: "Boarding was good and check in!"
Cons: "Dont have any entertainement and dont have usb to charge cellphones!"

Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"

Pros: "Friendly crew, budget price"
Cons: "No drink service at all"

Pros: "To get a drink faster - preorder online when booking"

Cons: "Baggage fees not clear"

Pros: "Basic price for the flight."
Cons: "Extra charges for unrealistic carry on weight restriction. I understand the need for profit, but I felt gouged by the charges. Would not fly with them again if there were other choices."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No online checkin facility at Queenstown and on top they have Limited staff at Airport. By the time I reached the counter in the que I had to miss the flight. Not travelling again."

Pros: "Lost our bag. Awful customer service. Rip off on bag fees. Worse than Spirit. Do not fly!!"

Pros: "They are very unclear about baggage fees and we had to pay at the counter. 2 bags $300. Really!!!"

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Delayed more than 1hr"

Cons: "The flight was an hour late and then we waited on the plane while they unloaded all the cargo bins to find three golfers bags who evidently did not make the flight. That extra time made us miss our connecting flight to the US. We spent almost 3 hours in the Sydney airport getting the run around on what we were supposed to do. When we checked in Queenstown for our flight the person at the desk must have know we would not make our flight as she did not give us a boarding pass for the Sydney to the US flight, but gave no directions on what to do if it was missed. I mentioned our connecting flight and the close connection to the flight attendant and she said it was not their fault."

Cons: "It was very discouraging having to pay almost as much as our flight for our small checked baggage - and it was confusing regarding how much we had to pay, I still don't understand what it was we actually paid for. There was not clear indication about this policy when I purchased the ticket, and we were traveling without internet access and unable to add a bag to our booking before hand. I've flown hundreds of times and never encountered this kind of fee. This frustration alone will likely lead me to choose another company next time."

Pros: "Before purchasing tickets, i confirmed with Jetstar agent that i could purchase bag fees anytime before the flight. I was even quoted a price. 3 weeks before my flight i went on to prepay for 1 piece of luggage and they wouldn't honor the quoted price. I had to pay almost double! BEWARE of luggage fees!"
Cons: "Huge luggage fees. Won't honor price quoted"

Cons: "Check in process is extremely slow with long lines. You are not able to check bags and are charged significant amounts to check in which cost even higher if you do it at the airport. Anything other Jen water is charged while on the flight."

Cons: "There's no kiosk to check in. You have to wait in line and if you're unlucky like me, you get behind a whole load of people off of a tour bus. Ugh."

Pros: "i would never travel to jetstar again they discriminate people we are indian we had some carry on bags they charge us extra they didm check any body els"

Cons: "Long flt not offered any water/tea/coffee"

Pros: "Nothing."
