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!"

Cons: "ok flight"
Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"

On board, the cheese and cracker snack pack I got was great, nice to see complimentary snacks and drinks being maintained. Onboatd wifi via the app worked well and was actually able to use inflight entertainment on hand held device online the Sydney to Melbourne leg"

All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"
Pros: "The coke"
Cons: "Not bloody much. I'm passed I'm not with my wife now"
Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Pros: "Quick boarding efficient on time smooth 'sailing'. No luggage so I was on the bus 5 minutes after the flight landed"

Cons: "There was a lot of confusion for people trying to use the kiosks to check in. Finally a representative stood by the machine and told people not to bother, just queue up for the desk to get boarding passes and drop of luggage , which took for ever. Once on the plane the seats are very cramped."
Pros: "Everything worked out beautifully even after I missed my connecting flight. I was rebooked on Virgin and ended up with three open seats. Great flight, good food."
