Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Every person that works for this airline (that I came in contact with) was very helpful, extremely nice, and very supprtive."
Pros: "Documentaries, food, wine, service, seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, excellent customer service from staff, and excellent in-flight entertainment. Meals from JFK -> Sydney was good."
Cons: "Meals from Sydney -> JFK was terrible, not sure why since going to Sydney was great."
Pros: "altho we departed late due to some technical issue, they still took care of us. we embarked to the boarding area and they arranged a snack for us.which is good given that it was already 10pm and our departure time should be 7pm."
Cons: "the chair.not that comfortable especially for my nape.i suggest the hard pillow like on the top of the chair should be replaced with a soft one that has a curve that will fit the nape. i didn't like the salad meal.it was like all raw.i wish they somehow made the meat tender and like medium well."
Pros: "A bit of extra leg room was nice."
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary."
Pros: "BKK Qantas lounge predictable and consistently good"
Cons: "Poor food choice, cramped tight conditions with poor service at best. No difference to Jetstar and plenty of better choices."
Cons: "I couldn't sit next to my partner even though we booked under one booking and I didn't get a meal when everyone else did."
Pros: "Much improved from the 'old' Qantas. Crew friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney a little messy. Only one attendant at gate. Longest queue ever."
Pros: "The crew were nice and the entertainment selection is always wide and varied, if a little out of date (the new releases in the music section can be pretty old)"
Cons: "Food can be pretty tasteless but I hear this is something that cannot be helped. The seating space in economy can, though, and it's pretty bad for long flights."
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
