I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy but was put on seat E next to a huge fat guy so was unable to sit properly. I couldn't get out of the seat once as he just slept and must of drempt as kept jumping and banging me. I had 1 meal on the over 13hr flight, which I couldn't eat properly as was unable to use the knife & fork due to the huge obese guy next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at all meal times. Which she didn't. So missed all the meals and tea/coffee. I was looking forward to the put a too. The London to Singapore flight was a total let down and I expected so much more from Quantus as they have always been top standard before. Overall disgusted in the service.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon.

Cons: Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: 13 hours might seem long but other carriers had longer flight times. Qantas was friendly and efficient. The flight itself was smooth. The B747-400 aircraft, while old, was comfortable. I slept for most of the flight with the help of some melatonin. The entertainment selection was good. The service was good. I would happily fly Qantas again on my next Australian adventure.

Cons: The headphone connection in my seat was wonky on both flights to and from SFO-SYD. It was the same aircraft.

Pros: The food was good. They had this pizza on focaccia bread that was amazing!

Cons: Same type of staff as my inbound flight. Some of the same folks too. Pushy, rushed, grabby, unfriendly. There were a few good stewards, but most could give 2 sh*ts about you.

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.
