Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"

Pros: "Not confortable at all! I was in the middle seat in the center of the plane and hD to get up every time people had to use the restroom. I could not sleep at all in the 14 hour flight - not to mention after a 6 hour delay - with poor communication on what the delays were all about. 4 different times the flight was delayed with no explanation. I liked nothing about this overpriced, under served flight."
Cons: "6 hours delayed in Sydney and nobody was telling us what was going on. I got sick while waiting, and was in a lot of pain all the way home. Also i had to pay $304 change fee to change my flight to Sydney to SFO from the original Melbourne to LAX To SFO thinking since I was coming home from Sydney I could change to a direct flight to SFO and get home early, but it took about 6 hours later because of the delay and I lost $304 in change fees even though I booked the fight via reward mileage and gave up 80,000 miles for this flight, and on top of that, when I changed the Sydney to SFO flight the system would not let me change my seat and I was booked in the middle of the plane in the middle in a 4 person row with 3 seats on the right and 3 on the left. I always fly in the window seat to help me sleep easier and not have to get up every time someone had to use the restroom. This was a 14 hour flight and I got no sleep at all and the 6 hour delay killed me. This was an awful experience and I don’t believe the $304 charge was worth it considering I paid 80,000 miles + taxes. I am complaining to executive management all the way to the top about this terrible expensive poor experience."

Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."

Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."

Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Also - who thought putting call buttons in the armrest was a good idea? We had 10 accidental calls from the people around us alone."

Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Slightly wider seats"

Pros: "What was there to like!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed a bit."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Terrible meals. Ran out if nany items. Only one refreshment s tree and in the back of the plane."

Cons: "Lack of food for dinner..they ran out."

Pros: "The plane was brand new, and the seats were very comfortable. They served food often, and the movie selection was perfect. Overall it was a good trip."
Cons: "They would not serve more than one alcohol drink at a time, so I had to get up often."

Pros: "Check-in & flight staff were very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was one hour late. There was no entertainment system on the flight. The snack was mediocre."

Pros: "Overall the flight was smooth, we boarded and off loaded quickly and were fortunate to not have a very full flight."
Cons: "The chairs had very uncomfortable seats, the arms did not go up all the way, so limited laying down. The food was overall poor and not very rapid service. Also for such an empty flight they ran out of menu options quickly. I believe our flight was not on a qantas plane but American airlines, which I suspect had something to do with the difference from previous qantas flights which were much nicer."

Pros: "Personality and communication with passengers by Asian-featured cabin crew team member in my area was excellent Movies selection very good"
Cons: "Quality of food seems to have dropped."

Pros: "Good crew"

Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"

Pros: "The staff are some of the best in the sky"
Cons: "The usual riff raff amongst passengers"

Pros: "Overall it was an excellent flight, delicious food, wonderful crew and flight mainly smooth."
Cons: "To get to the gate for boarding was like going from Terminal 2 to Terminal 7 too far for many people to walk and to eventually find when you are not familiar with the airport, thought for a minute Qantas had not paid their airport duties."

Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."

Pros: "The airline cares about every passenger from the departure terminal thru the flight and even at the destination terminal for a layover. You feel they care about you as a passenger, even tho we sat in economy,"
Cons: "Could not think of a single thing."

Pros: "I always enjoy the flights that have the in-seat entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Upper deck and lower deck economy seats don’t have the same amenities on the A380-800 plane"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Everything. No complains"
Cons: "Transfer at Melbourne was erratic. But I think after renovation it should be ok. Otherwise perfect"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Pros: "On schedule departure & arrival times Seamless easy check-in at Learmonth"
Cons: "On board food offering was poor Expensive for distance travelled No onboard entertainment"

Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."

Cons: "I made the same flight last year on a newer plane. This time I missed having water bottles available at all times."

Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."

Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, and just felt very welcomed from the moment I stepped in. Overall super super awesome"

Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."

Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment system. Unfortunately, I discovered season 6 of "Game of Thrones" too late to binge the entire season. The crew was friendly-- it was as comfortable as a 16 hour flight in the economy cabin can be."
Cons: "I did not get much sleep-- I was watching movies and TV!"

Pros: "crew always pleasant big pillows & blankets"
