Plane, when I boarded, at least in Coach, smelled like vendors hot-dog water. Took an hour and a half to be offered a drink of anything other than a bottle water. By the end of the flight, trash in the aisles, lavatories were nasty.
Checking in and boarding was good and reasonably fast. Room available for everyone's hand luggage. Toilets were reasonable. Food in economy was ok.
No hot USB port in economy. Inflight information system is old and screen resolution and contrast is not so good. Best to use own headphones.
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.
The headphone connection in my seat was wonky on both flights to and from SFO-SYD. It was the same aircraft.
Not many people on plane. Excellent food & staff couldn't do enough for you.
Plane was delayed for 2 hours with little information as to what the Elat was for. Seat mechanisms in premium economy not working effectively. Water dripping from above as plane started. Things the planes need a good overhaul!
Case was off quickly
No choice in seating
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.
