I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line.

Excellent 8.0

Cons: Good seat on Virgin VA1 51H and lucky for me there's no one seated beside me I had two seats all to myself. They run out of chicken and had to settle for vege curry which was ok. Purchased the wifi the entire flight which was awesome.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around.

Cons: For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water.

Good 7.6

Pros: I like the fact that qantas boards the passengers in the back and works their way forward! Ive seen airlines do the opposite and it takes forever and very inefficient. So good job qantas. Much appreciated.

Cons: Food could be better and cabin and bathroom cleaned more thoroughly.

Okay 5.0

Pros: The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi

Cons: Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Luckily the flight was only 3 hours

Cons: Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing.

Good 6.0

Pros: Comfotable flight, Good landing.

Cons: Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: tons of leg room in emergency aisle + fast on/off loading of plane

Cons: weird boarding via bus that was kinda annoying

Good 6.3

Pros: The crew members were very nice and easy going.

Cons: The flight took off 25 minutes late. The boarding started later than it should have and took way too long. The airport was understaffed from the security point to the boarding point. That was surprising how in smooth both of those processes were based on seamless experiences at the same airport

Good 7.6

Pros: The crew were excellent. Seating ok.

Cons: The flight could have been better if there was entrainment on the Boeing 464 return flight from Brisbane to Perth for the travellers that do not know how to use a laptop, IPad etc.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The plane had few people so it was quiet.

Cons: Meal was very average, captain speakers were very low and we couldn’t hear. The landing was rushed and rough even though it was good weather and plenty of space to slow down aircraft. No entertainment or offer to purchase/rent. The flight was delayed and we arrived one hour later.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: Landing.

Cons: Huge delays on check-in. System failures but also elderly people not knowing the check in process and causing further delays. People taking too much luggage inside the cabin. No food options for gluten free. No water served. Smooth flight though. Check-in staff at luggage short tempered.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
