Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Way cramped"
Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."
Cons: "Qantas is always delayed leaving"
Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"
Pros: "CREW WAS HELPFUL AND OBLIGING."
Cons: "IT WAS AN OVERNIGHT FLIGHT FROM DARWIN TO MELOURNE. THE 'SNACK' OF 2 PORK BOA BUNS AND JUICE/TEA/COFFEE OR AN APPLE AND SOME CRISPS, WAS POOR AND COULD DO WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT. RATHER UNSATISFACTORY."
Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available."

Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"
Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."

Pros: "The service was really good"
Cons: "My bag was broken when it came off the plane so I wasn’t happy about that."
Pros: "Service fantastic"
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"
Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient and on time - flight was exceptionally smooth and arrival in Brisbane was 45 minutes early - keep up yjr good schedule"
Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"
Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."

Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Business class seats are private and allow for lay flat sleeping"
Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."
Cons: "I was not able to board the plane and was told that I needed to apply for ETA. I did and was not able to do it online. Then I needed to call the embassy about a required visa as a visitor. None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement."
Cons: "They do not offer any options to passengers who have allergies i.e Onion and Garlic"
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Pros: "Qantas Launge"
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: "Close to two hours delay leaving Australia"
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."
Pros: "Very punctual and well managed"
Cons: "Not the best landing and could've moved people from allocated seats to make flight more spacious"
Pros: "Virgin are great."
Pros: "They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking were very smooth, and our bags were ready for collection very quickly."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that Virgin doesn't include more food on their flights anymore, especially as this flight was over lunch time."
Pros: "The booking process was incompetent One could not stand next to ones seat in bus. class. The toilets were poorly designed. Food was poor"
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches after only servicing 1/4 of the plane, and they are the only substantial pieces of food to buy for dinner! I was starving."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and we had decent leg room for economy. Flight was on-time unlike Quantas"
Cons: "Food was not appealing but the beverages were great."
Pros: "All goid"
Cons: "Leaving the day before. Not having just one but three delays and three changes of flights."
Cons: "Food could improve"
Cons: "The air pressure in the plane not good causing significant pain I’m my ears"

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and we arrived safely and timely."

Pros: "Quick, efficient, all you want and need for a flight to Melbourne."
Pros: "Good boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Seat and legroom"

Pros: "Nice smooth fligj t staff were very nice"
Cons: "The ground crew not their to get us off the plane so we had to wait for them."
Cons: "Long delay before take off."
Pros: "It wasn’t outstanding but no major problems Whereas the boarding process for the flight from Melbourne to LAX was poor 3 and half hour delay on tarmac no air flow Only to have a person disembark as well further delay ( dont blame her) The staff were ok but their hollow reassurances about support that would be given on the ground in LAX because of the delays were just that Told virgin staff would be on hand to assist TOTALLY UNTRUE yes they we’re there but didNOTHING to assist with ongoing flight delays"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Departed on time. Arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Leg room - very cramped"
Pros: "Crew is always lovely"
Cons: "The delay and then needing to fly low and take longer to reach destination But I’m saying that I understand it was unavoidable and necessary Just an inconvenience"
Pros: "Information on departure delays was forthcoming"
Cons: "The checkin machine kept giving me my fellow travelor boarding pass and not one for me."
Cons: "Loved every bit"
Pros: "did not load bags"
Cons: "did not load bags and didnt tell us. we had to find out ourselves and then missed our connection because they were soooooooooo slow doing paperwork. they only had an agent who wasnt that interested. Godd luck with getting any compensation!! Virgin's response was that this is normal and some flights have too much weight so not all bags are loaded and they dont tell the people concerned"
Cons: "Terrible take off and landing. No screen on seat back. Crew handling of problems not good. Ground crew not ready. No advice of 25 min late arrival. Worst flight by Virgin ever."
Pros: "Staff where great, plane was clean, and we left on time"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
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: "The ride on the plane was all good"
Cons: "I didn’t like that when I purchased the tickets it gave me no option to add bags to my ticket. My itinerary that was emailed to me didn’t even say anything about paying for the bags before I got there. I got a huge shock when I was first in line and I was told I would have to pay 370 dollars for both my bags. I was livid and quite frankly don’t want to fly or book with virgin ever again. That couldn’t even help me out with anything so overall I’m upset and will never fly with you Virgin. I will also let it be known about this. I’m just a young traveler traveling for education and I get stuck with this bill to where I shouldn’t even go because I spent so much money just for my bags :("

Cons: "30 minutes delayed due to errors in paperwork."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "The line to bag check was ridiculous and to the door in Sydney."
Pros: "Generally a good flight"
Cons: "Check in & Bag Drop Procedure is very poor. The process needs to be looked at"
Pros: "Check in agent was fantastic."
Cons: "Nothing. All good. Small delay but that happens occasionally."
Pros: "Check in online easy, I had bags to drop; all they needed to see was my boarding pass on my phone. Boarding & the flight itself was terrific."
Cons: "My bag was missing the identification ribbon I'd put on it, although bag handlers at Melbourne airport probably did that."
Cons: "Extra luggage charges for a children's stroller."
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. Why. Not quite sure."
Pros: "For that price it was a great flight"
Pros: "Crew wasn’t that polite."
Cons: "Anything extra"
Cons: "We had a row of drunk boys directly behind us. They drank non-stop, were extremely noisy and obnoxious - standing in the aisles, shaking seats, and yelling/singing non-stop. Worst flight I have been on this year as the crew did nothing to address this issue despite numerous complaints. P"
Pros: "Nothing, would not fly with jetstar again"
Pros: "great flight - fast and easy."
Cons: "it's jetstar so seats aren't the most comfy, but for a few hours, it's just fine."
Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."
Cons: "Don't know what hours they work, but the crew were clearly fatigued and couldn't be bothered. They were still polite but really just could not be a***d! Flight delayed by 20 mins and no explanation until airborne."
Pros: "Fine crew"
Cons: "Worst seats, cushions have wires jabbed in your back."
Pros: "The crew were great. Very clear on the p.a. System and good service."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and horribly cramped. No shaping to support your back and the tray table crushed my stomach and I am quite slim. Goodness knows how big people cope. We recently did a round The world trip with 11 flights and none were as bad as this."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "On time - early even"
Cons: "Seats are just too cramped Timing is woeful. 2:30am flight to arrive at 6:30am is awful!"
Cons: "By the time we paid for luggage fee and seat fee, it ended up to be more expensive than Qantas. Also, after our flight was cancelled due to weather, they were not very cooperative to take care of us - they put us on a flight two days later and didn't help us to get on an earlier flight on Qantas (their parent company)."
Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"
Cons: "A metal bar was poking into my back from the seat (17D) - as if the padding had worn away and the seat frame exposed. Tray table had not been cleaned and was covered in crumbs"
Cons: "No food or entertainment. Seats do narrow and MINIMAL leg room"
Pros: "Same as the previous review"
Pros: "Excessive bag fee. Terrible food purchased. No a good airline."
Pros: "Not confusing. Just goid travel. The flight attendants eere friendly. Pretzels were crisp. Juice chilled. Short flight. And I felt like I had room for my legs v. others olans I traveled on recently. All in all, satisfactory."
Cons: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Nice plane on the interior."
Cons: "That there was no entertainment option. Food was limited to snacks and they weren't cheap."
Cons: "Kayak and Jetstar should tell customers on line ahead of booking what the additional fees will be and offer the option to add those fees to the ticket price at the time of online reservation. It is a pain in the ... to be in a foreign country trying to use your iPhone to deal with these last minute charges so it is not at the airport counter last minute which they double the fees by the way (if you wait until you're in the airport)! Leaves a bad impression of Kayak and Jetstar. Lesson learned the hard way. Won't happen to me again. Buyers beware!"
Cons: "Rude service"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and the best landing ever! did not feel or know we had touched down."
Cons: "The entire experience"
Cons: "Not confortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you Australian airports and immigration is a pain, even for an Australian!"
Pros: "Good seat and small load so could move around"
Cons: "No entertainment and charges for everything."
Pros: "Hot chocolate was good, and toasty was large. Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "$60 for the first 15kg bag then $15 per KILO for any overage. Our extra bag (cold weather gear from New Zealand leg) cost $225 additional- wow!!! Be sure to add in baggage fees when comparing prices. On plus side, they didn't enforce 7(yes, seven) kg carry on limit."
Pros: "Be careful. I booked a return flight from Narita. I was NOT prompted in any vidible way about luggage. As qantas FF and based upon ALL past experience i expected an allownace of 25 kgs to be included. I had NO luggage allwoance. I was charged apprx 400 AUD $ for a 22.8kg bag. I asked to redress thsi for the retrun trip and have since discovered that the details have NOT been updated despite paying! So now I need to call Jetstar and worknthrough the issue."
Cons: "I was not not noticeably propmoted about luggae allowances or onboard food ent and beverage costs which ultimately added 55% to the ticket cost, so a reasobale priced tocket ended up an expensive one."
Pros: "We got there no leg room"
Cons: "No leg room a320"
Pros: "Nothing, because I didn't have had any food."
Cons: "Nothing, Because I didn't have had any food."
Pros: "Did not order any food, so there were no surprise charges."
Cons: "Beware, they charge $15 per kilogram for over weight luggage."
Pros: "Take off and landing was very smooth. Great staff"
Pros: "Onboard staff are friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Jetstar are unreliable, and do their best to extort more money from customers than the seemingly low initial price. Since they don't refund anything, if you need to make a change, they charge like wounded bulls and push you onto flights with inconvenient times and connections, then lie barefacedly, telling you the better flights are full."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hours late. We didn't know we needed to pay for luggage. The allowance was also much less than on other airlines- traveling for 2 months made this a real surprise and made us shuffle things around at the counter. Awkward and we were able to carry the extra on so what was the point of the inconvenience. Kayak should have provided option to purchase at time of booking. Not even water included in flight."
Pros: "No hassles, great flight. No issues!!"
Pros: "I wish all airlines were as professional and prompt."
Pros: "We landed safely. That's about it."
Cons: "Airline cares more about money than happy customers. Disappointed. Customer service was far from helpful and passive aggressive, despite the fact that the error was on their mobile website (wouldn't let me add baggage) and so I was forced to buy it at the airport which cost like 2x as much. They wouldn't help adjust. Plane was also very dirty."
Cons: "Just stay away from this airline. One of the worst in the world. Don't care about their customers at all."
Pros: "The plane was relatively new."
Cons: "Boarding was late. Food selection was poor Entertainment choices were slim And obviously charging for luggage and food sucks."
Pros: "Check in staff member was nice"
Cons: "No food or drink - at least you could offer complimentary bag of peanuts and orange juice two times during the flight!! Unfriendly crew member on board - she said in a very.bossy way 'Careful of your foor sir' then later intentionally ran into my foot even though I did my best to keep all parts of my body out of the aisle and the offending foot wouldn't have been more than an inch or two at the most into the aisle!! Also the legroom and arm room is very poor indeed - who did you use as your models, pygmies? Also I was charged $100+ for a date change - but I was SURE I clicked the right date, and even if I didn't, you should have a confirmation screen which confirms what the customer is ordering before they finally approve the order."
Pros: "Speed and efficiency."
Cons: "Quality of food available for purchase on board."
Pros: "Crew really weighted in carry on luggages"
Cons: "They let me through although mine combined up to 8 Kg"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 35mins. Seats very crowded, we all had to get out of our seats to let the window passenger in and out. No screens on seat backs, lucky I had my iPad and could listen to podcasts in the 3+hr flight."
Pros: "I arrived safety, and the crew were nice."
Cons: "There was NO inflight entertainment. The seats are to upright,. The new Terminal 4 is a very long walk. The Lounge facilities are at the other end of the airport in terminal 1."
Pros: "Awesome lady at check in."
Cons: "Just disappointing to need to pay for a cup of coffee. This is just too cheap to feel good about."
Cons: "it delay too late at night. Others services were very good"
Pros: "The check-in woman was a gem! Due to Australia's strict carry-on policy - one item, period - I had to repack my luggage, which contained a fragie printer that had been in my carry-on when I could have it AND a computer bag. The Jet Star allowed two checked pieces, and the agent gave me all the time I needed to make the changes. She then marked the bag fragile, and sent me to the oversize/fragile bay with it. It arrived in PNG rattled, but working normally.The woman was a peach!"
Pros: "Quick travel."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and hot."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Restricted carry on weight limit"
