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."

We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service."

Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one.

Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"

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."
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Pros: "Despite the fact that there was a nearly 9 hour delay in Sydney, Qantas handled it as best they could. I received three $15 meal vouchers to use in the airport. And, since I missed my connecting flight, Qantas booked a hotel for me, free shuttle service to the hotel from the airport and rebooked me on the earliest connecting flight. I was of course inconvenient for this to happen but it was handled well."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants were more interested in socializing with each other than working. More interested in talking about what they were going to do in NY. They were not neatly dressed as compared to others Quantas crew members on other flights, before our meal was served they were eating rolls before serving us. Changing flights was a mess, getting your bags, going though customs, picking up bags and having to go so far in the airport to go check in again was disorganized. Food was not good, fish was fishy, worst meal in three weeks of traveling off and on plans in and out of AU."
Pros: "The special meals for my son and daughter were amazing!"
Pros: "Qantas Airlines really made traveling a pleasure. The little extras like, chocolate snacks, ice cream, a huge selection of entertainment, the most current navigation systems that allowed you to know and see at ever minute exactly where you were on the journey, just to name a few. I also found the staff especially pleasant. Thank you Qantas"
Cons: "Our plane home was a little older and the seats weren't as comfortable as they could have been."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful food much better this leg although the scrambled eggs arent nice at all"
Cons: "The seat did not tilt back but was so happy not to be cramped it did not matter. Meant to tell crew before I left plane but forgot"
Pros: "Nothing because they did not allow us to take the flight. We had to buy new sets of tickets."
Cons: "They did not do their best to help us talk to the Australian embassy to allow us to re enter Sydney even as transit passengers just to be able to take our flight with Philippine airlines early the next morning. I know we made a mistake of getting flight to Manila in Sydney. We should have just gotten flight from Auckland instead but it was an honest mistake. They should have just allowed us since we know it's possible. We spent 14, 000NZ additional for that mistake."
Pros: "Food is good which is being served hot , even the bread is being served hot . The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"
Pros: "Their assistance with w/c , food & staff being so helpful! Thanks Qantas!"

Cons: "No legroom at all, very cramped"
Pros: "It was OK"
Cons: "It would of been nice to know why we were delayed."
Pros: "Nice crew inside the plane"
Cons: "It is outrageous the price for overweight cabin that was not even 10kg. Not food or entertainment included in ticket price. Even if it's a short flight, at least water to keep passengers hydrated should provide. Really uncomfortable with this situation."
Pros: "No drama."
Pros: "The touch down landing was PERFECTLY smooth!! Thank you Captain!"
Cons: "Small walkway and seats."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "it was fast and effective"
Pros: "I didn’t book a seatbelt beforehand so when I checked in and was assigned the front row, which is an emergency exit row, I was very pleased because it meant I could board early and had extra legroom. The check in agent was also very patient with me while I tried to sort out my bags"
Cons: "Easy to book and check in"
Pros: "Very easy flight, especially the Wellington airport part, with polite and efficient security."
Cons: "Nothing, it’s a LCC on a short flight doing its job very well. Pity my legs are longer than the distance between the seats though."

Pros: "I luved the attendants and the service"

Cons: "I didn’t really like the fact that we had to pay for seats."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Service on the plane and in the terminal was good"
Cons: "Walking on the runway to the plane was uncomfortable with wind rai and noise"
Cons: "And no announcements re the delay until the very last minute."
Pros: "the actual flight was fine"
Cons: "When I looked up the flight option through your site I selected one checked bag per person and it showed the price and I decided to purchase. Then when I tried to check in at Jetstar online it showed I had no checked bags WHY?! then I complained about it in an online chat and the chat agent would not agree and said I had to pay for checked bags if I had any and said he/she could do that and asked how much the bags weighed. Since I did not know and could not answer how much the weighed I decided to check them online myself since it gave me options for weight/price I knew our bags would be under - the chat ended and I proceeded to try to pay for one bag each online. However, after more than a half dozen attempts which were all rejected I had to close the online check in and leave as we were running short on time to get things done and get to the airport. At the airport I told all this to the agent at bag check and she would do noting but charged me about $240 for the two bags - grossly more than the $28 for one and $38 for the other that I was trying to pay online & roughly as much as the cost of the flights! Will you please let me know what can be done to get my money back as this is just not right?"
Pros: "Economic overall. Check in staff very helpful in resolving baggage issue ( see below). As long as you undertstand your ticket/ baggage cost, you'll be fine."
Cons: "Tried to pay in advance for baggage. Online system wouldn't accept our credit card (needed a signature) so entire booking put on hold. A little stressful, but airport staff sorted it out with no added cost."
Cons: "Flight change fee within 24h of booking would have been $120 for a $49 flight. Carry-on was 9kg instead of 7kg - $60 extra fee. Never again."
Pros: "Arrangement when flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Cancel the flight without letting me know"
Pros: "Avalon is quiet, decent facilities"
Cons: "Should give water on the flight. Didn’t buy food didn’t use entertainment"
Cons: "It was good flight"
Cons: "Rude ground staff."
Cons: "Didn't realize when I booked I'd be charged $60 for a lightweight duffel, one way. Will not repeat."
Cons: "Jetstar is the worst airline I’ve ever taken"
Pros: "And different from other international carriers ( 20 kg instead of 23 kg). I had to pay 105 AUS for a carry-on from Sydney to Melbourne. It would have been less expensive for the carry-on to buy a seat."
Pros: "flight was on time, moved everyone efficiently, quickly through boarding gates, luggage arrived quickly - not a long wait to get it, staff nice, professional, polite, greeted us in friendly way"
Cons: "seats - squashed in close to seat in front and behind - can't tilt seat back into relaxing position"
Pros: "Excellent leg room in the dash 8 plane."
Cons: "1 star for entertainment and food because the flight is only 40 minutes!"
Cons: "Eat and sleep"
Pros: "On time departure/arrival"
Pros: "I got to my next destination"
Cons: "The $320 charge for our bags at check in!!!! No mention from kayak that there is a higher charge for bags if u pay after U buy the ticket. The walk outside To get on and off the plane. Nothing good about this airline or the lack of adequate description of their ridiculous policies from Kayak"
Pros: "Reasonable price, quite helpful at check-in, got extra leg room for this 6ft. plus frame."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time, even a bit early."
Pros: "flight smooth with bad weather, competent pilots"
Cons: "Bagage fee extortion, we were a family of four and had to pay $200 US dollars for 4 bags because it was not paid online. I wasn't sure what everyone was bringing yet when I booked tickets. the baggage agent told us it would have been less than ten dollars per bag if booked online. I can see doubling the price but not quadrupling... the luggage is still boarding the plane, whether you pay 10 or 50 dollars, it doesn't change anything other than they make more money off of the passengers."
Cons: "Butchered by prices that were offered on Kayak and then taken to the airline sites where the prices are different. Jetstar rips you up with baggage prices at the gate. Nowhere does Kayak state that you have to pay upfront for Jetstar baggage......"
Cons: "Delayed due to "engineering problems longer than usual" for incoming flight into Wellington. Then jet bridge door at AKL wouldn't open which added more time. Frustrating when travel is time sensitive."
Pros: "boarding and crew were great"
Cons: "if I put on one more kilo I would not fit in a seat, I am 90kg"
Pros: "Debbie at Avalon was very kind and helpful!"
Cons: "Upon boarding a flight from Sydney to Avalon I was told my duffel bag was too large to carry on the plane even though I had been allowed to fly a few days prior with the same bag. I even placed my bag in the sizer at the gate but she still told me it was too large and "too heavy" although she did not weigh nor pick up my bag. About 5 minutes prior I had seen her walk a guitar that had been gate checked down to the plane. My bag was not so lucky. I arrived at Avalon and my bag didn't. My bag was going to arrive on the next plane which wasn't coming in for 3 hours. We were staying about an hour from the airport and boarding an early morning flight from Tullamarine to Los Angeles. Deliveries of missed luggage ceased 2 hours before my bag was due at the airport and didn't commence until after I was due at Tullamarine the next morning. The flight attendant who made me check my bag was on my flight and easily could have told me my bag wouldn't be making it on our flight but she didn't. She was rude, smug, and unaccomodating. The customer service representative at Avalon, Debbie, was more than helpful trying to figure out the best option for me to retrieve my luggage before my flight home to Los Angeles. She made a stressful situation a little less so. Thank you Debbie!"
Cons: "Customer service is terrible. Seats are uncomfortable. No food or entertainment provided."
Pros: "The cabine crew"
Cons: "40 mn delay on a 3h45 flight is a little bit too much. Airplane not really comfortable and noisy. But that is what low cost means, right?!"
Pros: "Low price, on time departure"
Cons: "No food or entertainment options. Seats mediocre in comfort."
Pros: "Service. Timings. Pro attitude"
Cons: "I don't like how you charge outrageous fees for bags if you make the mistake of checking your bag at the airport instead of online. I just got my phone in March and someone else made the reservation for me. He didn't know about checking the bag online either. I needed my bag, so I was forced to pay the outrageous fee. I feel ripped off and very unhappy about it."
Cons: "The fact that they did not mention ahead of time that if I check bag at airport there was going to be a 50 dollar charge but if I had checked the night before on line only a 25 dollar charge. That does not seem fair expecially since they don't seen you email or anything telling you this in advance. The ticket agent at the airport told me."
