Pros: Although we were seated in economy and legroom would be tight, we had a truly great flight. The staff are all sweet, smiling, considerate and helpful. The snacks kept coming and the meals were delicious! We’re were treated so nicely, I hope to always travel on Qantas to visit my grandkids. My last United flight wasn’t even close to being comparable. In fact, I dreaded the thought of the long flight but Qantas has changed my view and now I have NO reservations when contemplating future visits.
Cons: My husband is a lacto ova vegetarian. If I checked that, then he wouldn’t have been able to pre-order the delicious vegetarian bechamel lasagne. He would’ve received a meal specifically designed for him. Best way to order next time in order to get the pre-ordered dinner/lunch and then the lacto ova for the breakfast?
Pros: I liked that it was comfortable and they had good movies.
Cons: The food can be a little better
Pros: Wonderful staff, always smiling even though they were exhausted!
Cons: Too many kids. The child seated by me kept kicking me and climbing on me during the whole 13.5 hour flight. His parent did nothing. I had a 20 hour layover in Sydney arranged after the flight was booked due to changes.
Pros: Great aircraft

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
