Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."
Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"
Pros: "Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European."
Cons: "The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane's interior needed a makeover, as is old"
Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"
Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."
Pros: "Good crew"

Cons: "The economy Seating area is very small for such a long trip."
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."

Pros: "Good flight. Staff was excellent and attentive."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "I noticed duct tape repairs on the chair in front of me. Also the armrest between my partner and my chair was broken and wouldn't stay up. The food was average. I've noticed a huge decline in food quality from 4 years ago. Also the airline's choice to serve stinky fish on a plane was questionable."
Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."

Pros: "The crew was helpful. Food was good. Really like the individual entertainment screens!"

Cons: "Very cramped. Food was poor. Limited games choices in the entertainment."
Pros: "it was nice to get an early phone call about flight delay and given a food credit for the delay, pleasant check-in, smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "the poor boarding control and information. delayed boarding time and no-one from Qantas at gate until 45 minutes past the time scheduled on ticket and no communication of why nor when we would board. new passengers arriving were allowed to start getting in at gate before notifying us who had been waiting there to be told to get in or in what order. seat arm rest (between seat 58b and 58c) was wobbly. Entertainment movies need newer choices specially for people like me who can't sleep on long flights and have seen all this movies. where's the classical music?."
Pros: "Again, top quality service and support from all qantas employees. Good was yum also! And the Rv made time go by fast."
Pros: "Quantas is great, great food, staff, seats were pretty roomy. Entertainment options were very good."

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"
Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"
Cons: "the air conditioning didn't work well, constantly fluctuating between freezing and hot"
Pros: "Good crew on the ground and in the air."

Cons: "The fight was significantly delayed due to weather, which is not their fault, but they did not update us or the departure time toward the end, which they clearly knew and didn't communicate that it would be further delayed. They forgot cups for tea and coffee, so we only had water or juice."

Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Pros: "Travel was easy, and the flight crew was great"
Pros: "The snack and OJ eere ok."
Cons: "Not picking my own seat, boarding from front AND rear is a nightmare, crew could care less! My seat was next to the bathroom (the front bathroom was unusable) so I had people hanging on my seat the entire flight...entertainment ap must be downloaded before flight! Not to mention we were an hour late due to weather even though every other flight was on time!"
Cons: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Had to pay extra $70 because I couldnt take some spare parts as cabin luggage which should have been accepted."

Pros: "Liked that they boarded from front and back"
Pros: "2 free checked bags when flying domestically is a big plus!"

Pros: "Great customer service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Computer system was down and check in counter could have used a few more employees to service the long line of customers waiting for about 45 minutes to check in."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were beautiful. The falafel was tasty. Smooth landing."
Pros: "personal treatment and friendly cabin staff"
