Could have handled that a whole lot better."

The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."

Cons: "Food choices could be better"

Pros: "Meals, comfort, and crew all above average."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "We requested wheelchair assistance for my grandmother (3 days before the flight), but at the departing airport, the person with the wheelchair left early and we had to walk her on to the plane. When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one. The ground staff kept trying to convince us to just walk which seemed very unprofessional."

Cons: "Suggest online check-in providing change seat options"
Cons: "About cabin crew for for more smile"

Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and diligent !"
Cons: "Food could have been better with some more options available onboard!"

Cons: "Seats too narrow in Economy."
Pros: "All gud"

Cons: "Our flight from HK to LAX we were told that the pilot refused to wait for us even if we arrived in HK from cebu at 11:35 of July 29 and our flight to lax was at 12:05 .Cathay couldn’t do anything about it. We were billeted in a hotel far from the airport with free breakfast but no lunch was provided and the earliest flight they could give us was scheduled at 16:35 of Juy 30. Upon returning to the airport I asked a cathay staff regarding provisions for lunch but I was told there’s none.Overall our trip both to and from LAX were very uncomfortable and inconvenient. I hope Cathay will do something better in situations like we encountered. As of this writing I and my husband are still at HK airport waiting for our flight to LAX."
Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."

Pros: "Little more leg room! A good flight overall"
Cons: "Flying time too long!"

Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."
Cons: "Flight was late. I understand that there could be unexpected problems. But please do not say that due to 'operational reasons'. Sounds like BS. Tell us he actual reason. Arrived late, engine problems, passenger missing, etc."

Cons: "On the first leg of our journey the seats were very difficult to adjust. We required the help of the attendants."

No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Very efficient with the timing of take off and landing. The crew members were lovely and polite."
Cons: "The time was a bit awkward esp the overnight flight back from Colombo to Hong Kong left us shattered all day long as the seats are too small and congested which makes it difficult for us to sleep or even sit comfortably. Wish they arranged the flight to earlier times."
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Cons: "Late boarding and departures from LA to CGK and from CGK to LA. Seats were uncomfortable for 14 hours flight. Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef. Flight attendant yelled out loud to tell the passenger to seat down instead of approach the passenger."

Pros: "excellent flight attendents"
Pros: "Pretty much self serving at the back of the plane ( like it)"

Pros: "Crew, comfort, snacks"
Cons: "When boarding stick to boarding from back to front, and stick to rows and not a free for all half way through"
Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"
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: "Crew were nice and entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Flight was 1hr 40 minutes late and had to catch a bus to the end of the airport to even board. As well as shared terminal gates..."
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: "The most uncomfortable experience ever! I was disturbed and/or woken up several times, during flight, by the flight attendances to place my seat in the upright position to accommodate the person sitting behind me who either wanted to drink alcoholic beverages every hour on the hour."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable,"
Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."

Pros: "Crew was nice, seat not so comfortable"
Cons: "too crowded for such a long flight"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."
Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."
Pros: "Showing their age. Forget WiFi or USB ports. Food ok but can be vastly improved."
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "Clean, timely, organized, good food, good entertainment, smooth... Aussome! :)"
Cons: "My remote in my arm rest (58D) was a bit broken. While it still worked, the flap was missing some screws to hold it in place. Also, the touch screen oftentimes had issues sensing my finger on the pause button. Overall it did not hinder me from enjoying the entertainment services provided."
Cons: "Lack of food for dinner..they ran out."
Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."

Cons: "I would loike more music concerts on the entertainment system"
Pros: "Liked the food, flight attendants, entertainment and overall comfort even though it's just economy. You just have to come prepared with what you need to stay entertained and comfortable ie snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, jacket or sweater, pillow, headphones, music. Better of you can bring your own headphones that use bluetooth and headphone jack cable."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic at best and starts 20 minutes before take off. It works but it's very chaotic for economy passengers. I am sure it's much easier and nicer for premium economy and business select and first class passengers so you get what you pay for lol."
Pros: "Good was good"
Cons: "I sat in seat 77c the seat in front of me had something broken so my seat table kept falling down. Other than that it was good"
Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."
Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."
Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Cons: "Very hot in the Flight to LAX. Crew was trying to do a good job, just didn’t see them much. Food was bad. Will think twice about booking with quantas again ☹️"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."
Pros: "The entire staff was wonderful and friendly!! Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Cons: "We had a delay as they could not get the lift for food to put onto the plane, so we were delayed 1 hour. Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Pros: "Again, cabin crew is friendly and no last minute gate changes,"
Cons: "The food was gross, which could be a just a cultural difference in food tastes. There were no functioning USB charger ports on the return flight even though the ports were present. No wifi, which is a first. Most airlines I fly on these days always have some type of wifi. Lastly, the 'touch-screen' on the seat for entertainment barely worked. Buttons didn't work no matter how much you touched them. There was a delay and the selection of movies and tv were pathetic. I will not be flying Qantas again."
Pros: "The food and the crew were very good!"
Cons: "The seat had a large box at my feet and the headset/charger didn’t work at my armrest, which meant I had zero audio for the entire flight."
Pros: "The staff was so attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The seats could use a little more leg room"
Pros: "Flight crew were not enthusiastic about their job. Need to do service with a smile & not act like we are burdening when a request for certain service was made."
Cons: "Plenty of movies to watch"
Pros: "I didn't die; also was able to change from middle seat to aisle"
Cons: "- unable to check in online - unable to check in at kisok at airport - belts broke while waiting to drop bag, took forever - there was a leak above my seat, water kept dripping on me - only 1 of 3 options available for dinner meal, did not get the one I wanted; chicken was disgusting - person in front of me was given first choice of breakfast since he didn't get his dinner choice, I was not offered the same preference - my breakfast choice ran out right before the attendants got to me, got screwed again - crew did not apologize or make it up to me"
Pros: "I watched heaps of movies and programs."
Pros: "Ok selection of TV content. Pilot focussed on getting us to Perth quickly."
Cons: "Crew put lights out right after take off - hoping to shut us up and keep us out of the way. Poor movie selection due to streaming limitations (license issues for wireless streaming of content)"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence"
Pros: "The food and drinks were so lovely, it felt like I was in first class rather than the cheapest economy seat. Great entertainment selection and comfortable seat that let me sleep well."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."

Cons: "N A"
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."
Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"
Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."
Cons: "Ran 2 1/2 hours late, poor customer communication"
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
Cons: "Went from LA to Guangzhou, China. My family checked 6 bags in. Only 5 arrived in China. My bag with ALL my clothes and ALL my meds was the one missing. I had nothing to wear (and that includes underwear) and no meds for 2 freakin’ days. Worst experience EVER!!!!"

Cons: "delta security in the UK is an absolute farce. The security screening at LHR was long and understaffed"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat in 1st class. Poor quality video screen, too small, too far away, poor sound."
Pros: "Staff and flight were good"
Cons: "The chicken dinner was mediocre"
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch."
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, and I appreciate the eye shades. There was a tremendous amount of turbulence on the flight that seemed to last for hours without a break. I have flown this route many times before and don’t remember turbulence that lasted so long without a change. The seatbelt sign was not on and the plane felt like a small boat in choppy waters."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
