Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Great seats! Little extras like toothbrush are wonderful!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "The tv size, charging station, foot hammock"
Cons: "No delay,"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Aircraft are very dated"
Pros: "Fantastic crew members who were very helpful with our infant."
Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"
Pros: "The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was very smooth and arrived early"
Cons: "All I got for breakfast was a muffin, they ran out of fruit and yogurt before they got to my seat"
Cons: "Bigger seats, more room between the seets."
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"
Cons: "Older plane so entertainment system left a bit to be desired"
Cons: "Have a choice of both sweet & savoury snacks onboard."
Pros: "The seats were smaller which is fine for a 1.5 hr flight but if I had to compare it to the first leg of the trip, these things stick out."
Cons: "The flight time seemed late. The plane was already there, the airport was empty and the gate was full. It would’ve been nicer if it was a little earlier, although getting through customs again might not be as easy for some people on a 3 hour layover?"
Cons: "Arrival at Terminal 3 at Perth Airport was a real disappointment. It took more than an hour to get through passport control and customs. Woefully understaffed and exhausting after flying from Heathrow and arriving at 11.45pm. Makes me think twice about flying qantas into Perth"
Pros: "Good seats in exit row"
Cons: "Couldn't check in on mobile"
Pros: "Everything went well. boarding and check in."
Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized and confusing."
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "Direct flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Good price, on sale."
Cons: "Leg room okay unless person in front puts there seat back and then it is almost impossible to be comfortable, even if you put your seat back. Food distribution is done in mysterious ways. Movies were the same coming and going even though it was more than a month between flights."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours. We were stuck on the plane 2 of the 3 hours! Terrible!"
Pros: "Ahh Qantas. What a relief after an internal US flight on a US carrier. Spacious, comfortable, on time, good food.They even comped us for luggage delayed that was not their fault."
Cons: "Nothing - all good. Thanks Qantas for showing us how it can and should be done."
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: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."
Pros: "As my partner and I got on board, flight attendants greeted us with a smile. Upon deplaning, each flight attendant we passed by said "thank you" for flying Qantas to Sydney"
Cons: "My partner and I wish we could check-in on the App instead of checking in for flight on the web site via laptop"
Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."
Pros: "on time friendly team comfy seats"
Cons: "Coach food is typically not good, but I've had a few coach experiences that were impressive. GOOD is a good rating for their good for coach."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and fairly attentive in business class. I had access to the First Class lounge in Sydney and it is wonderful. Even has a spa, though don't expect first class spa treatment. Uh, plane was clean and food was ok, but getting a cocktail was difficult."
Cons: "Business class seats are uncomfortable and there is nowhere to store and easily access something as simple as a book. There is a storage compartment on the seat in front of you, which you cannot reach without getting out of your seat.. While the seats do go flat, it's not something you can sleep on your side for long. Ended up reclined and sleeping on my back, which is not ideal. accessing my reservation was impossible and had to call Australia to get a seat assignment, which was reassigned by the time we checked in anyway. I care where I sit and book early to have choices. I hate to say it but I was not impressed."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."
Pros: "We were late arriving due to roadworks at the entrance to the airport leading us miles out of our way due to poor signage Baggage had closed and the Qantas staff were excellent in ensuring that we caught the flight .Well done !"
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: "Crew was very attentive. The boarding was slow at first but moved along quickly. We ordered our meal online and got our meal first. Very good food."
Cons: "The seat was small and we are not tall. The bathrooms were always crowded and hard to clean."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Pros: "the flight left on time which is always a boon, and the crew were efficient, altho i got the sense that they had done it all many times before, and they were only going thru the motions. the flight was incredibly full, so little room to move around, and leg room is a definite challenge! the bathrooms were good, they didn't smell like most airlines do! Food was generous in portion size, and there were yummy snacks also."
Cons: "the aisles in the plane were very narrow, so getting up to go to the bathroon with everyone else became a challenge! apart from the narrow aisles and the lack of leg room it was a good flight."
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
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: "Almost 17h is a LOOOONG flight, so it could have been awful... Thankfully it was not crowded, though, so I had a centre row to myself! Actually managed to get more than 4h of sleep. Loved the SkyCam, especially since we followed the full moon all the way."
Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."
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."
Pros: "I was in Seat 44C The flight crew who comprised of Elsie Fao ( excuse me if I have the name slighly incorrect ) Susan and the gentleman whose name I do not know could not have been better in their professional manner I short they were superb"
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Cons: "Kept getting delayed"
Pros: "The crew was great However my neighboring seat mate tray was stuck. They compensated both of us however those should be check in first class."
Cons: "Overall good thanks"
Cons: "Delayed on tarmac 20mins in Chicago, then delayed getting to the get in Philly, bags took 40 mins to get to carousel"
Pros: "I typically have a way better experience with United than I do with the cheaper airlines (such as Frontier & Spirit.) I like that I can check a bag for free when I book with my mileage credit card and that I can carry on a bag without hidden fees."
Pros: "Flight crew. Entertainment."
Cons: "2 hours late. No room for 22 inch carry-on in the overhead."
Cons: "Worst crew, bad food, small personal space. Cheapskate company."
Pros: "Had an entire row to myself. So I stretched out to sleep all the way on the red eye."

Cons: "Delayed departure and several gate changes"
Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."
Cons: "The woman next to me had her computer angled toward my face with the brightness all the way up. On a red eye. It was rude, and she prevented me from sleeping at all on the flight."
Pros: "There was a delay due to thunderstorms and the female pilot handled it extremely well"
Pros: "Flight was timely and crew was very nice - good flight!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
Cons: "Flight never happened. American Airlines saved the day. It seems to me, the issues with United are deeper than we ever thought. I was highly disappointed with their inability to rectify the situation."
Cons: "i sat in front of the exit row which was feeezing. My boyfriend and I needed extra blankets because it is a red eye and sleeping is important but they would not give them to us. We were pretty much shivering the entire way home and could not sleep."
Cons: "Flight attendant were not courteous"
Cons: "No internet so made for a boring flight"
Pros: "Staff was very kind and genuine"
Cons: "the plane was absolutely freezing cold!"
Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Cons: "Internet was down the whole time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room or seat size. Just uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flihht was cancelled night before. Rep said impossoble to get him home the same day. Looking online there were flights available, just more expensive and doesnt follow their policy. Very disapointed"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "very smooth and fast"
Cons: "some of the united employees were rude"
Pros: "The man at the counter gave me a much better seat than I originally had. He was pleasant and very customer-friendly. I can't remember his name but he had brown hair, glasses and a mustache. I was extremely exhausted from my Las Vegas flight and it helped me greatly."
Cons: "Slow, rude check-in staff almost made us miss our flight. Crew was unpleasant to us. One member was wearing a repulsive, visibly dirty uniform shirt. No service due to turbulent flight."
Cons: "What food? A little snack mix. And once again, needed to get in and out with a shoe horn."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned"
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "No entertainment screens & last seat didn't recline."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "My seat was a tad bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "There was a sick passenger on board. The crew spent 40 minutes trying to convince him to get off the plane. He refused and after 40 minutes, they left him on and we finally left the gate."

Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Cons: "Had to pay for my own shuttle to the train station (an hour away) and sit on an overcrowded train for hours. Extremely disappointed. Flight was canceled do to "air traffic control." No attempt was made to put me on other carrier's flights even though there were open seats with another airline."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Pros: "Everything was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to pay for Internet to watch airline movies on my device. Not enough leg room."
