Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."

Pros: "Good entertainment, tasty food, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "nil"

Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."

Pros: "Good food and entertainment"

Pros: "Great flight. Efficient and great service."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable.. glad it was only a few hours."

Pros: "Crew a was good - Seat was not so great. I tried to book my seat/boarding pass when you sent through the notice to do so in the morning but at that stage there was only 1 seat available to sit in?? Seamed a little odd to be completely booked out at that stage"
Cons: "Isle Seat"

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "I had to change flights to LA."

Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"

Pros: "all good"
Cons: "all good"

Cons: "Boarding is very haphazard, not according to seat numbers, no pre boarding for small babies. Flight attendant spilled juice on me, very unprofessional."

Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."

Pros: "Everything was barely adequate. All the flights on this trip was substandard. Planes seemed old and dirty. Really disappointed."
Cons: "Barely made the connection."

Cons: "Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement. Flight attendant sounded unprofessional over PA Would like more snacks - savoury and sweet, instead of just savoury. Snack was not sufficient for a 3 hour flight landing at 9pm. Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!"

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "The sitting arrangements was great"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "In flight wifi and entertainment didnt work"

Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."

Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"

Cons: "Boarding is a gong show. Not very clear signage for premium line so there’s always a ton of people jamming up the queue"

Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."

Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."

Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."

Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."
Cons: "Seat room on the international flight - became uncomfortable after over 17 hours and could not afford upgrade to business or 1st class."

Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The business class seats are average at best. The dinner service is good but not well coordinated. The cheese platter at dessert is really anticlimactic. I look forward to international biz class meals, but I want this to be better."

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "very narrow seating. no snacks at back of plane no plug in for computer or cell phones. outdated plug in for headphones"

Pros: "Smooth flight, good breakfast options, easy check-in, flight was on time."
Cons: "I"

Pros: "Chargers in all the seats, great movies, great food."

Cons: "Hot food disgusting."

Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."
Cons: "The 747 we flew was older and noisy. Our trip to Sydney from LAX was aboard an Airbus A-380 ... much quieter, roomier, and equipped with the latest technology."

Pros: "Quick and easy to board Overall everything was good Food was above average Crew were accommodating and friendly"
Cons: "Headphones poor quality"

Pros: "Comfortable flight. I sat on a window seat this time and it was really roomy. I was in disbelief how more roomy it is compared to an aisle seat."
Cons: "2hr delay leaving LAX"

Cons: "Seats were incredibly cramped, very little legroom for such a long flight."
