Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European."
Cons: "The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE."

Cons: "All I got for breakfast was a muffin, they ran out of fruit and yogurt before they got to my seat"

Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"

Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"

Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."

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: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."

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."
