Pros: "The crew was okay And the seats good it’s little wide In general was okay"
Cons: "The food not so good I like service on the plane was good"

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."

Pros: "Amazing flight and service. Would fly Emirates all the time if I could."

Cons: "I do not find anything to complain. My first choice will be Emirates."

Cons: "Couldn't get boarding passes for all three flights when I checked in. Screaming kids."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If you want upgrade you should bay 2100 USD why it’s a upgrade not new ticket !!"

Cons: "I paid extra to have an exit row for this long flight. Just before taxiing a man moved seats into the exit row seat next to me (not paying for it like I had) and was intrusive and sprawling out over into my space the entire very long flight. I am extremely unhappy about this and the willingness to allow him to move seats that I had to pay extra for and then left me zero comfort on the flight."

Cons: "The cabin crew seemed to be too overwhelmed by their responsibilities and were rude at times."

Cons: "Because the airline kept changing the gate numbers an this was my first time to fly alone. Plus I had to take a bus to a plane on the tarmac. I missed my flight. Tried to charge 600 for the same flight the next day. The people were rude an impolite at Dubai. It’s very expensive airport. Do Not Fly with United emerites at all. Terrible just terrible"

Pros: "Excellent. All the staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I forgot to ask them to put to add my quantas points for the flight home and an worries I can’t noe but need to try and do that tomorrow. There was no where to add them when I booked the flights."

Pros: "Seats were comfy and as expected perfect seat 79k"
Cons: "Stewards took a while to respond to the buzzer yet I was sat by the quarters Also food wasn’t offered the choice as they had ran out"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very poor service overall"

Pros: "Emirates deserves its reputation for providing an overall enjoyable experience"
Cons: "New Jersey airport is seriously lacking in functioning systems"

Pros: "Love the A380 - the sheer size of it allowed for more personal space. Consequently, it was a much more comfortable flight."

Pros: "Wonderful airline, great movie collection, ended up leaving one of my bags behind in Dubai but they were delivered to my home in one pice"
Cons: "The time between flights was so little and with a big airport, literally had to run from one end to the other"

Cons: "high price and long waiting time"

Cons: "Food. And also seats. We r silver class and should have been assigned better seats."

Pros: "one of the best flights I have had going to zanzibar"

Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "food is the same as last flight."

Cons: "seats wouldn't recline, they say it is a mechanical, I had to sit uncomfortably for 16 hrs"

Cons: "Didn't leave the UK, volcano"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Some customers were allowed to drink to excess. Staff lacked the discipline to say no. Cabin staff showed clear bias to some customers. They chose to chat with passengers and neglected their duties. Little clusters of drinkers gathered in non seat areas away from their seats causing noise. Staff did not challenge this. Female staff too busy giggling with drunk men"

Pros: "Got a promotional upgrade and was incredibly impressed ! Flying will never be the same !"
Cons: "The fact that my next flight is going to be economy"

Pros: "The staff were pleasant and the food was passable"
Cons: "The number of children screaming and running up and down the aisles was ridiculous. Since parents can’t be trusted to stop their darlings from raising hell, the flight attendants need to. The poor old guy next to me looked like he might die from exhaustion after this long-haul hell. In other news, rushing us into the bus and then leaving us standing there for 30 minutes is not my idea of a good start to the journey."

Pros: "The staff & the service"
Cons: "The entertainment set up was dated and malfunctioning"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"

Pros: "Service."

Cons: "Hindu Meal was a repeat of the DEL DXB and DXB JFK sectors."

Pros: "Food and entertainment and punctuality"
Cons: "Quite a long wait to disembark"

Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Facilities and Crewe in business class were great"
Cons: "The food was not great. The pheasant was hard and dry and my mums gluten free meals where not very appetising"

Cons: "THe Entertainment system did not work. which meant no tv, info or seat adjustment. this was in First Class. horrible"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Screaming kids the entire 14 hours. The staff should have at least spoke to the family and kindly asked for them to take care of calming the child down. Instead, he screamed the entire flight and did as he pleased, with no regard to any of the customers on the flight."

Cons: "Too long layover"

Pros: "PLenty of room (for tourist class), great entertainment system."
Cons: "The crew did not pass through the cabin frequently enough to collect trash. As a result, a lot of trash built up in the seats and aisles during the 16 hour flight."

Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."

Pros: "Entertainment great."
Cons: "Scratch on screen. WiFi stopped intermittently and too early at end of trip. When disconnected, the 30 minute free allocation kept counting down to zero minutes."

Cons: "The fact that I can only carry 30 kg and also that it is very expensive to add extra luggage."

Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"

Pros: "Short flight, but they fed us great food, great service, even good wine."

Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "flight delayed - but that happens..."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful, and the food options for vegetarians were great, and the entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "My seat did not recline, but I told a flight attendant and I was able to get a better seat."

Cons: "Have a choice of both sweet & savoury snacks onboard."

Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was fine, seating was ok. Appreciated food and snacks, boarding - and disembarking- was handled super well."
Cons: "How do you enforce 'quiet time' when there are chatty children in the row in front and in back of you? Was constant distraction."

Cons: "Arrival at Terminal 3 at Perth Airport was a real disappointment. It took more than an hour to get through passport control and customs. Woefully understaffed and exhausting after flying from Heathrow and arriving at 11.45pm. Makes me think twice about flying qantas into Perth"

Pros: "crew was very nice"
Cons: "entertainment system malfunction needed a long time to reboot"

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "More information about the ongoing delays. Cabin crew seemed aloof."

Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"

Cons: "The seats were much too close together for any comfort. Quite frankly, I booked with Qantas because I heard it was a good airline and comfortable. Riding on AA was NOT comfortable. If I wanted to ride AA, I would have booked them."

Pros: "Free entertainment when it actually worked."

Pros: "Crew was nice and ready to help"

Pros: "Excellent in-flight service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."

Cons: "Couldn't get on the flight, thanks to the airline counter person."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I am tall so the seats a really a little close together. It was particularly bad when the person in front reclined full for a sleep."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Love those seat covers and overall comfort"
Cons: "My wife's headset channel, not the headset, was defective and was heavy with distortion. Overall, the plane seemed a bit worn. However, good floght overall."

Cons: "We did not make this flight"

Pros: "Fabulous service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Food on Qantas is better than domestic U.S. carriers and it's nice to still experience good service."
Cons: "It is frustrating that most airlines never leave on time anymore. They should be required to pay each passenger $50 for every 15 minutes they are late. It's also terrible that seats have become so cramped. My biggest fear is to drop something at my feet because then I can never reach it. Sigh."

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."

Cons: "cramped seats. a miniscule snack, with no napkin to clean up with"

Cons: "The QF 73 was more than 4 hrs late. The boarding ticket states boarding @16:30, but no one said anything and the PA gave no announcement. The actual boarding did not happen until after 17:00."

Pros: "Good price and pleasantly surprised with Quantas (first time flying with them)"
Cons: "I didn't get to choose my seats this time so I got stuck in middles both ways"

Pros: "Staff was very accommodating"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Assistant at luggage drop off was very pleasant and helpful"

Pros: "Staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "First of all, they gave my boyfriend and me separate seats when I checked in online. I called and they said I had to sort it out when we arrived at the airport and they'd leave a note for staff. But when we got to the airport we were told they couldn't do anything because they can't move assigned seats even if the person hadn't checked in yet. Thankfully they managed to find us new seats at the gate. The gate was a bit ridiculous. It was at the far end of the airport and we had to take a decent bus ride to get to the plane. Once we all piled out of the buses, they still were t ready to board so we all had to wait in a line. The plane ended up leaving about an hour and a half late due to the location of the gate and the slow boarding process. Also, we checked in online but there was no expedient bag drop line for people already checked in, so we had to wait in a very long line to drop off our bags."

Pros: "I don't injure about anyone else but when I fly such long distances you get anxious over being cared for. Stewards were great, food was great and plenty of it. Anything you needed just let them online and they will accommodate"
Cons: "We were delayed due to wheel problems which ultimately affected my connecting flight. Missed the flight"

Pros: "Qantas is my favorite airline. I will always fly with them given the choice."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "It's Australian."
Cons: "Typical overnight flight."

Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."

Pros: "Flight was full and was delayed. Food was awful this time and the service wasn't excellent. It seems like the crew were tired."

Pros: "I have a nut allergy and there are no nut free meal options to select prior to my flight. Worse still the attendants didn't bother to check the meal ingredients, something that was offered to me by the budget airline Fly Dubai."

Pros: "Friendly service, reasonable food"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."

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: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."

Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."

Pros: "Nothin"

Pros: "Staff very friendly"

Pros: "The staff where excellent as was the full process from getting to the airport to disembarking. Would like to fly with them again"
Cons: "We have an autistic child and to get the seats that are most suitable for us proved very difficult. We got there in the end but basically they have said that that if we want to get our seats before check in opens we need the pay. We have never had to do this before and I was very shocked and surprised. They eventually relented and resolved the issue however the damage was already done. For a company that is associated with the local autism society I was very disappointed that they don't recognise it for the challenge that it can be."

Pros: "Great everything by Qantas - couldn't fault any aspect of the service"
Cons: "Not good that traffic backed up 800 metres to get to drop off zone!"

Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Cons: "Was not the original scheduled flight."

Pros: "Entertainment system was good as usual"
Cons: "No food on plane due to issues after extended delay Woke up 4 1/2 hours before flight due to land with a frozen orange juice and a muffin. Too much wind to land and a final vomitus landing. Not the best."
