Pros: "Managed to reach destination safely. Only taking about 8 hrs more than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed. The made boarded passengers disembark and wait for an unpredictable amount of time with no updates. Then finally we boarded then the service was very poor. For example they did not remove the dishes for about three hours after serving dinner. The last straw was that they diverted to Sydney instead of the final destination Melbourne as the crew was going over 20 hrs. With the diversion they saved about 45 min , but the exhausted passengers lost another 3 hrs in their already miserable flight. Also quantas NOT friendly for people traveling with kids.... BEWARE."

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."
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: "I didn't ask for any upgrades, but the ground crew were attentive enough to offer me a direct flight back which was 30 minutes earlier. Everything was perfect. Food, seats, entertainment. Can't complain about anything."
Cons: "Not much of a biggie, but one of the middle aged lady flight attendant was a little rude. Perhaps had a bad passenger before serving me."
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."

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"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Onboard service was pretty lousy, felt like the crew members didn't really want to be there. Not very friendly at all. Needs to be properly trained in customer service. The food was pretty average as well."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"
Cons: "The airline used a codeshare that did not seem to signify anything. They would not provide me with any help when it became clear I would miss my connection. Furthermore, I purchased an extra legroom seat and was charged for it twice. Avoid if at all possible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour"
Pros: "Left on time. Clean plane."

All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"
Pros: "Happy to be on last leg. Good crew one of whom told some guests to shut up while she delivered the safety information. I thought that was great that she had the guts and did the right thing. Give her a bonus as we are all taking the delivery for granted."

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"

Pros: "Friendly staff, ease of getting on and off the plane."
Cons: "Small nibbles...."
Pros: "Cheap - perhaps too cheap."
Cons: "The fact that the food doled out was so small as to be insulting (a hummus pita bread that was in a plastic container actually small enough to fit in your hand); coupled with the fact that to eat actual food or have a drink one had to pay additional. No headphones; poor entertainment choices."

Cons: "Difficulty hearing the pilot over the speaker system during the flight"
Pros: "The free snack us an unhealthy chocolate..ok for spinning freeinflight ad but insulting to the intelligence of customers"
