Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I booked through justfly and then that flight was cancelled and they put me on a United flight to SFO and changed my seating to a middle seat, when I had paid for a window seat. They would do anything to change it back or refund me my money."
Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then didn't board on time"
Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "The ES on my failed three hrs into a 13 hr flight. No music no movies just a black screen. Staff unable to help. The cold salad option included raw potatoes, inedible raw broccoli stocks & green beans. Tough grisly ham bits. More like rubbish bin material than food."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no ES, poor quality food options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour"
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"
Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."
Pros: "I cannot thank the Qantas staff enough for our recent, very smooth trip from Melbourne to Dubai. I was a little worried about the 14 hour trip since I am 7 months pregnant and wanted to be sure I had enough room to move about as needed. Both the desk and plane staff arranged for my husband and myself to have 4 seats to ourselves (luckily, it wasn't a full flight!) which allowed me to rest and put my feet up (literally!) through our long journey. They also checked on us frequently to make sure we were comfortable throughout. Thanks so much Qantas, we will definitely be traveling with you again with our little one in tow!"
Pros: "Left on time. Clean plane."
Cons: "I don't like the music that plays before leaving. I would rather silence than music which doesn't suit everyone's taste. I find it irritating."
Pros: "Virgin are great."
Pros: "Crew were good but looks like they forgot to serve snacks for few of us at the back, otherwise service was good."
Cons: "Put more attention to customers."
Pros: "It's only an hour flight. Crew are fine."

Pros: "Business class manager really looked after my food allergy requirement."
Cons: "New crew member - belatedly realised I was in business."
Pros: "Economy X seat much better"
Pros: "Great, love the ATRs"

Pros: "Another delay by 1 hour"
Cons: "I should only book qantas .... virgin are never in time."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Trip was pretty standard."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, as soon as we landed in Melbourne, the plane had to shut down on the tarmac which then meant I missed my connecting flight and had to wait in the airport for 6 hours until the next flight. All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"
Pros: "clean planes, easy security, good boarding."
Cons: "flight was delayed - we sat on tarmac with doors"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Virgin Australia and Virgin America apparently do not share traveler info with each other. Neither airline could provide a seat assignment until I reached the counter at my departing city. I had to search for my connecting flight check-in desk to receive a boarding pass. This required a 2nd trip through TSA inspection."
Pros: "Staff where great, plane was clean, and we left on time"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Staff need training in using the sound system, speaking slowly and clearly."
Pros: "Because the flight was short, we had no entertainment options offered. I think I’d like flying more if movies were show, even if the whole airplane shows one movie like they used to do. Otherwise, it was a normal flight...nothing memorable. Though, my fiancé did love the granola bars and raves about them after the flight. I didn’t eat mine so I gave mine to him."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "Quick boarding efficient on time smooth 'sailing'. No luggage so I was on the bus 5 minutes after the flight landed"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable the pads around the neck push my head forward. Would be great to have better support for the back making the seat shaper like an L. Tall person problem."
Pros: "nice aircraft. hosts were promt to address any issue."
Cons: "lack of movie options especially hindi movies"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and ran smoothly"
Cons: "It left 50 mins so I got into Brisbane half an hour late"

Cons: "No headphones offered like Qantas."
Pros: "It was a good flight. Arrived on time"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."
Cons: "I don't understand why we had a 4hr 40 min flight plan which went way up the Australian coast instead of going in a direct line from Melbourne to Christchurch, when the ticket noted about a 3hr 40 min flight time. If you can enlighten me that would be appreciated."
Pros: "We know you want to make money. Have a heart and give us some more legroom. It’s cruel how you pack people in. It’s ridiculous. Luckily it’s a short flight, but, man, your greed is causing people pain."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 and a half hours. Ground staff were rude and dismissive and just huddled together to chat to each other and joke."
Cons: "Ground service - once airborne it was ok"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "legroom too small and food was minor snack."
Pros: "staff were wonderful"
Cons: "Very difficult boarding for my mother with stairs& steps Also no tine whatsoever to drink tea and nutty thing too hard to attempt to rat"
Pros: "Good cup of tea. Good crew."
Cons: "the double biscuit is difficult to eat because it is too thick. It is quite tasty. However something savoury would be better e.g. cheese and jatz."
Pros: "Easy access from both front and back of plane."
Cons: "Stewardess got frustrated with my son ( almost yelling at him) instructing him to open the shade after the flight ended speaking Chinese to him. Though my son is half Asian, he doesn't speak a word of Chinese, she should have started with English !!! It was a flight from Australia for god sake."
Cons: "Refer to heading Virgin I think you are taking cheap too far"
Pros: "Everything went well. I came through security right to the gate, onto the plane and into the air. Great flight, timing, they were spot on that day."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and polite from LA to Brisbane. Comfortable seats from LA to Brisbane, if we did not end up sitting 4 of us in 3 seats due to some very thoughtful seating assignment of my family. Food was good, but less compared to Quantas."
Cons: "1. Unable to check in online, which created a problem with seating assignment of my family. By default we were supposed to be separated 2 and 2 members of family, sitting each group with a stranger, each in aisle seat... well thought through, but my 2 year old would not sit still 14 hours in the middle seat as he wanted to walk and go to play with his dad and brother... anyway, good job Virgin Australia. 2. No botlarfing tickets from LA to Brisbane were given to us by not so nice lady at the checking in NY. We ended up looking for Virgin Australia booth in LA, which delayed us so much that the plane was waiting for our boradibg... I was unable to even change diaper or get mild for my little son.3. Another frustrating situation was when the same "virgin America" representative in Newark forgot to put out Global Entry on our boarding tickets and we had to go through a regular check in. 4. The same Virgin america person asked us to repackage 6 suitcases due to 1.5 pound over weight, although looking at the scale, scale was giving a different weight the same suitcase when measured a few times after.... 5. You have to pay for food from Ny to LA. I did not expect it as my experience with quantas on the way from NY to Brisbane via LA was different."
Pros: "it is really fast to check in, but the seat is just in front of the toilet, the smells are disjusting."
Pros: "First class was dirt"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Movies were good but the entertainment system wasnot easy to use."
Cons: "Food was rather ordinary."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Would have liked a little more to eat, especially with the early rise to get to the airport in time. Qantas serves breakfast."
Pros: "Usually i fly Qantas... however since this trip ihave been very impressed with Virgin's services. In particular - quick & streamlined boarding, very comfortable and new seating, complementary snacks & drinks (with gluten free snacks!), and friendly professional staff :)"
Cons: "Difficulty hearing the pilot over the speaker system during the flight"
Pros: "Attentive crew Aircraft accommodation"
Cons: "Better food offering Boarding per zones; people tend to be unorganized when boarding."
Pros: "The new App for you mobile device is good. I enjoyed watching the movies to help pass the time."
Cons: "There is never enough room in the seats. I am not a big person, but when a big man is sitting in the seat next to me I do not have my own space."
Pros: "I was very pleased and will continue to book with you."
Cons: "The PRICE!!!! with my favourite airline"
Pros: "Nothing that I like specifically or I didn't use.."
Cons: "The food was awful, the chair was extremely uncomfortable, no other entertainment provided. The crew was freindly and good, but the food I just can't.... And the chair seriously is the only thing I hate the most... Got sore neck after the flight ugh"
Pros: "Service from the crew was good, however it would have nice to have been woken & offered lunch."
Cons: "Too many screaming children! Very cold."
