Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "Super easy"

Pros: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."

Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that"

Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Food was reasonable and staff as amazing as ever."
Cons: "The flight was extremely packed making the experience a bit less comfortable. The transit through LA was chaos, although and explanation was given including an apology."

Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Due to limited internet in Rarotonga, we weren’t able to fully check in until we got to the counter. The flight in came with two checked bags and not our flight to Auckland. We were expected to pay a fee at the counter but was charged $170 for the counter checkin of one bag. This price was not listed or posted anywhere during the booking or via email for mobile check-in."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"
Cons: "Check -in staff said that there were no seats available in emergency exit rows so put us in the row in front. We couldn't recline and thete were several seats empty in the emergency exit row behind us."

Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."

Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."

Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."

Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We did not receive Food and entertainment because the website was not clear that you have to pay extra for these things"

Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, crew was very fun! Food was good. Nice leg room at my seat. Carry-on compartments are very high in these planes, great for tall people, one can actually stand without hitting the head."
Cons: "I could not select my seat (for free) at booking. Later I could not checkin via internet on my mobile, I needed the APP but couldn't download it (not enough battery at the time), consequently I had to take seat given at checkin at airport but attendant kindly found me a seat that was best in what was left on a fully booked plane."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."

Cons: "Boarding is an issue. Please have more staff in the early stages of boarding to make sure people go to the correct lines . It's not immediately obvious and leads to frustration . I wasn't too bothered as I worked it out quickly but I could hear many others expressing their frustration around me . I was disappointed in the movie selection. I wanted more new release movies to choose from . Cabin crew friendly and polite . Love the wine ! Put up with being cramped .. would love more leg room but overall very happy ! Thank You everyone involved !"

Pros: "We were allowed to check one bag for free...that's awesome. And we were provided with two full meals on the flight, more food than we could eat. And even a complimentary alcoholic drink! Great selection of movies. New Zealand Air is one of the best flying experiences I've had"

Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."

Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."

Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."

Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."

Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"

Pros: "Crew were very human unlike in the industry. Seat next to me was empty, I requested to change the seat Ms. Aimee the crew let me after safe cruising. Best part is, the seat was sky couch or premium economy and she let me use it. If it would be other airlines they would mindlessly refuse it. High level of courteousy and sense of exellent service displayed. All airlines should learn"
Cons: "Food could get better."

Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."

Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."

Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"

Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."

Pros: "Free cookie!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Keeping flights and terminals accurate and on time. Not loosing thousands of dollars of my belongings they lost my luggage"

Cons: "Seat"

Cons: "don't know of anything"

Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."

Pros: "My flight attendant, Grace, was delightful. There were several challenging passengers around me and I observed her handle them with the grace of someone who embodied their name—Grace."
Cons: "No wifi on board. The plane was one of the older ones, but still perfectly nice."

Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"

Cons: "The flight was excellent and the service was impeccable. The attention that they gave all the passengers including myself was excellent. Would Recomend to take Qatar from Bombay to Miami"

Pros: "Great crew!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "On time. No problems"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was good. Seat is roomy and able to stretch leg."
Cons: "toilet is smaller"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Cons: "The time of flight changed 1:30 hour erlier and we did get noticed we were about to miss the flight it’s so annoying but at the end we catch it"

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "The hospitality of this airliners is unprecedented"
Cons: "Nothing. Although the flight was delayed, we made up the time inflight. And the hospitality as 5 star."

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "Everything ok"

Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "The staff are great, the food is good."
Cons: "The seats are awful, especially on the 7 hour flight from Doha to Barcelona. Very narrow, marginal recline. Also the flight was very hot, my watch thermometer said 33° at one point"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."

Pros: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"

Pros: "The leg space the reclining chair the personal tv the head rest The food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"

Pros: "Comfy, good food, good service"
Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."

Pros: "Cabin was very nice with modern equipment and food and refreshments were provided frequently. Entertainment options were great too. Cabin crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "Connecting flight from Philadelphia to Doha was delayed by 5 hours due to some technical errors. By the time we arrived in Doha, there were no more planes heading to Manila. We did get booked a free night's stay in a hotel in Doha along with transport to the airport"

Pros: "Gate crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding seemed haphazard as it took quite awhile for all of the pasengers to stow their luggage and settle down."

Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Pros: "It was much better flight then JFK-Doha, crew was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Dirty washrooms."

Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."

Pros: "Personal courteous service"
Cons: "Quality of food"

Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! Terrible customer service. Would not offer us complimentary airport hotel stay for a 19 hour layover. Wanted us to switch and pay to an earlier flight. Never again."

Cons: "Food is not fresh and seats are not comfortable. Very little leg room."

Cons: "Engine problem. Everybody off of aircraft after sitting in it 3 hours!. No airline representitives inside airport to help. Slept in airport with various ppl from qatar popping up and giving untrue information"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."

Pros: "The courtesy and efficiency of the crd, an acceptable level of comfort inf the economy class."
Cons: "Food below average, command of the entertainment screen not convenient."

Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"

Pros: "13+ hour flight is never an "excellent" experienced but QA does its best. Great cabin service. Decent legroom. Food is good but not *quite* up to the standards of some competitors. Doha airport is great. Modern, convenient and clean."

Pros: "free good"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."

Cons: "Emirates have a big name in the industry but their presentation was really disappointing."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, good entertainment"
Cons: "Poor gluten free options"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficiently carried out, considering there were hundreds of passengers"
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for a variety of reasons and sat in the plane for 2 hours before taking off. That was difficult for everyone."

Cons: "I could not check in to book my preferred seating because my flight connections was a mixed carrier flight. Website did not tell me what was the issue so I kept trying. Also would have preferred it if I could have checked in online for my emirates routes but that option was not available."

Pros: "Crew were good though snacks weren't on offer without asking."
Cons: "The seat I was had water dripping from the roof shortly before landing. Guess it was the condensation from the airconditioner"

Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."

Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Amazing flight to travel for long travel! Relaxing! Easy to adjust in the whole flight! Crew was giving an awesome service!!"

Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Pros: "staff is nice"
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as other airlines. Baggage lost. Took 30 hours for us to receive. Flight to jfk seems to be cancelled due to weather, but it is very unclear due to no communication from Emirates."

Pros: "My third time with Emirates. This time on an Airbus A380 from Prague to Dubai. Simply put, wow! Everything about this aircraft and flight was outstanding, from the aircraft itself, to the crew to the in flight service and the comfort of the seat,"
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Really."

Cons: "Emirates checkin staff in India charging fees unnecessarily. Don’t know it is Emirates decision or Indian staff . I hate to travel again through Emirates ."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I loved everything from the food, the crew, the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I think this is hard to fix which is the comfort level. I was not avale to sleep well as the seats were a bit stiff. But it still one of the better seats I have been on for a long flight."

Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."

Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "It was amazing."

Pros: "They were able to give me some medicine for my stomach ache and were so kind."
Cons: "Nothing that I can say..."

Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"

Cons: "Food was not very good. Lightly tested. The crew never came beside serving food"

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"

Pros: "Always my number one airline."

Pros: "Everything was on time. Very comfortable. Nice service."

Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."

Pros: "Crew is very accommodating and nice. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is horrible and the plane is unclean. Bathrooms need to be cleaned often on a 15 hour flight."

Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."

Cons: "Great movie selection and food."

Pros: "Continues"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "very poor food and seating"

Pros: "Great airline"

Pros: "The good hospitality and customer service from the airline staff and agents over the phone."
Cons: "I disliked the feeling of being targeted and discriminated against. I was forced to undergo additional unwarranted extensive security checks as I was boarding the plane. I was asked to step aside and have my carry on rechecked while I was being interrogated by an officer. This is all in addition to going through an extensive security check at the security checkpoint. This procedure is Unjust and Humiliating for innocent passengers try to take a flight with absolutely nothing to hide."

Pros: "The crew The food The entertainment The comfortable seats"
Cons: "The airport in Dubai is a little too cold and open to catch a snooze on the floor or at a corner."

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"

Pros: "The crew could be less curt and more engaging. Coming from Guest Services in hospitality, leisure and tourism it is obvious that body language and sincere engagement stands out. That wasn’t the case for the Qantas flight."
Cons: "I was unable to checkin or select seats. Understandably this is governed by immigration laws and not airlines but on three attempts I was able to pay for the seats without a receipt only to learn later that the charge did not go through. A little bit of transparency never costs anyone."

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great crew and good food."
Cons: "Delayed departing."

Pros: "Nice crew. Comfy seats. Fresh fruit was great!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable & I loved the flexible head rest. The food was good. The flight attendant were friendly & attentive. It was my first time flying Qantas & it is my new favorite airline!"

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."

Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"

Cons: "The entertaimnet headset socket was faulty and I had to hold the jack in a specific way so I could hear the vocal channels. Sometimes it just dropped out all together. Tried multiple headsets but having the socket and jack on the inside of the armrest where it was so easily knocked by you leg was so incredibly stupid and made it hard to get comfortable or move position in the seat. First time I've ever seen this on a plane. Ok, so Qantas got us there safely but the inflight movies its what makes it bearable."

Pros: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"
Cons: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."

Pros: "Flight departed slightly late but arrived on time. Great movies to choose from. They gave you little kits that had a sleep mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, and ear plugs. The food and drinks available were good. There was a USB and outlet for charging."
Cons: "My husband’s screen didn’t work for watching movies and his seat did not recline, but mine did."

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I am tall so the seats a really a little close together. It was particularly bad when the person in front reclined full for a sleep."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"

Pros: "Variety and regular serving of food. Great entertainment. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Everything was great - a bit cramped in the seats when people recline, but as expected on all airlines."

Pros: "The wide selection of free movies and TV shows. The food is tasty!"
Cons: "Our first flight to LAX was delayed by 7 hours so we spent the day in Sydney airport, spending more money on meals that hadn’t been planned. Because of the delay, we missed our connecting flight from LAX to JFK. The flight we were re-booked on was also delayed for mechanical/paperwork issues so we arrived back home in NYC 8 hours later than originally scheduled. This caused us to spend more money on a taxi since it was too late to take public transportation. it also made it difficult to settle back in at home because both my husband and I had to get up early for work the next day and we missed several hours of unpacking and cooking time we would have had had our flight not been delayed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight without any explanation. Unable to check in on phone. Checking into this flight at the airport took over 2 hours. Hated everything."

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Pros: "A lot of snacks"

Cons: "My seat got moved when I had pre-selected them. The power outlet between the seats didn't work so I couldn't use my CPAP. The earphones/jack would only have sound in 1 ear."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I'm satisfied"

Pros: "Flight was delayed. Entertainment, movies wasn't that great for long haul flight. They could have included more interesting movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Attention by cabin crew was ok. They can be more friendly and approachable. I didn't experience customer care."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight, food, boarding, minimum entertainment"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"

Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"

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: "Crew wa very pleasant and willing to help"
Cons: "Old plane, food was average, luggage wasn't sent first as it usually is for business class and had to wait forever to pick it up"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."

Pros: "Friendly cabin attendants"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was not only friendly but interactive which was appreciated on such a long flight. They have a decent movie/TV selection."
Cons: "The headphones were poor quality so I would consider bringing your own to hook up to the port they provide. The food was mediocre but I don't expect a 5-star meal. The seats were not comfortable for 15 hours but I'm not sure I'd be comfortable in any seat for 15 hours."

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "flight was not full and crew allowed folks to move around and spread out."
Cons: "food was a miss. Too salty, mushy."

Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."

Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"

Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."

Pros: "They still serve free food and beverages, even on cross country flights. There were plenty of movie choices to keep us occupied."

Pros: "Best price for derect flight. Crew was pleaant , food was ok. Would fly same flight again."

Cons: "Seats where narrow"

Pros: "Flying business class on quantas is awesome"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly personnel; efficient and timely boarding: surprisingly good meals"

Cons: "We got off onto a shaky set of stairs that surely would have been a safety violation in the states."

Cons: "They bumped 60 of us off the plane with no warning"

Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"

Cons: "I got a middle seat. Any other seat would’ve been better."

Cons: "This connection was 1 hour and 20 minutes and I was asked to pickup my luggage and do check-in again, when I arrived to the desk they said that I needed to be there 2 hours ago and just after arguing my connection situation they let my pass"

Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"

When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."

Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
