Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Great seats! Little extras like toothbrush are wonderful!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Pros: "The service, comfort. Flight was 20 minutes early, our luggage came out quickly. This was the first flight for us on the dream airline in business. It was fantastic."
Cons: "Nothing"

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

Cons: "More entertainment options"

Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."

Pros: "All as expected."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant."

Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"

Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful. Good choice of movies, tv shows, podcasts and music."
Cons: "When the person in front put his seat back there was no room at all for me. He had it back for the whole 12 hour flight except when the staff asked him to put it up for service."

Pros: "The crew was amazing , the seats comfortable abd the food and refreshments very good."
Cons: "It would be better if there was a media screen between Sydney and Perth."

Pros: "Great Business Class Lounge close to departure gate."
Cons: "Connecting from a domestic flight with Virgin Australia to the International Terminal carrying 5 large pieces of luggage was a bit stressful and complicated. Train or Bus ? Lots of Lifts up and down. Boarding security was excessive."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Needs vegetarian options"

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"

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Pros: "Despite being fully booked, the 14 hour flight was peaceful and easy. Every seat had a pillow & blanket upon embarkation, the lights were dimmed after dinner and it wasn't difficult to sleep. Staff were very friendly & accommodating."
Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"

Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."

Pros: "Nice friendly staff."
Cons: "The snack provided was very unhealthy, and they did not have any alcohol available."

Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."

Pros: "Got a good price for RT ticket."
Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."

Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."

Pros: "Flight left on time, arrived 20 mins ahead of time. And great landing"

Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Pros: "Crew member Alex in the Economy main cabin was wonderful. He tried to memorise as many passenger names as he could as they boarded, and clearly has an amazing capacity to do so. His attitude -- that doing this is worthwhile -- is unusual and highly commendable. He immediately put people at ease. He was attentive, helpful, and very pleasant to all passengers throughout the very long journey. He was a remarkable crew member, turning a journey I had dreaded into one that was memorable."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Cons: "Felt squished"

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

Pros: "Decent plane, good staff, very clean"
Cons: "Food was only ok, limited entertainment choices"

Cons: "Awful baggage claim process. Plane has landed for one hour and still no mention of which belt you can retrieve it. Qantas is horrible in customer service."

Pros: "One of the representatives was genuinely helpful. She made a better effort than others to help me find another flight replacement."
Cons: "Most representative/consultants were not helpful. I was given inconsistent information by different representatives."

Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "No issues, quick and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"

Pros: "Felt looks after by crew"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "when my bag got lost"

Pros: "Ok selection of TV content. Pilot focussed on getting us to Perth quickly."
Cons: "Crew put lights out right after take off - hoping to shut us up and keep us out of the way. Poor movie selection due to streaming limitations (license issues for wireless streaming of content)"

Pros: "Great food and service, enjoyable flight home. Cabin was clean and seats as good as airlines are."
Cons: "What horrible uniforms...... they are shockers."

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"
Cons: "I would have liked another round of drinks. Also people were still walking around and to the toilet when the fasten seat belt sign was on..."

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: "The crew was always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The kind chap behind me who insisted he had to bounce my seat every time he made contact with the entertainment screen. All night long. In hindsight, I should have asked to be moved."

Pros: "It was nice that the flight was not full and we were able to stretch out in neighbouring seats. It was nice that the lights were left low for longer than a night's sleep, as not everyone wants to sleep at the same time on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food service was slow, and refills were not offered as has been the case on many other trans Pacific flights I have been on. Also we did not receive the mid flight snack that was listed on the menu. The meals themselves were not as tasty, varied, nor as filling as those on Fiji Airways and United Airlines. My dinner had only pasta with sauce in the container, with no other vegetable offered. I was still hungry after eating my breakfast, and I was only offered tea, when I expected both a choice of juice and tea."

Pros: "Not enough food"

Pros: "Nice flight. I like how much water they offered and the food was the best I have ever had on a flight."

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."

Pros: "no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies"
Cons: "Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like."

Cons: "A little more leg room"

Pros: "The crew were friendly and tickets were a great price"
Cons: "No legroom at all, very cramped"

Pros: "It was a full flight and all went smoothly"
Cons: "It could have been on time bu these things happen"

Pros: "They cancelled return flight and were rude when I tried to rebook; they also weigh luggage and charge extra; had one kind agent who helped; won’t fly again and won’t use cheap flights"

Cons: "Flights to & from Sydney to Melbourne were ok!"

Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"

Cons: "The seat leg room is getting smaller and smaller. You can't put your seat back- you'll crush the person behind! And I'm short!!"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable, crew was lovely"
Cons: "Tired seats should be updated."

Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"

Pros: "The price is in good relation with the quality of service."
Cons: "The attention of the flight coordinator was poor, is a gross person under pressure and with really bad manners"

Pros: "yes it was"
Cons: "Music!!"

Cons: "I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Travel good"
Cons: "There was a delate"

Pros: "Leg room was sufficient, boarding fast and plane next to new"
Cons: "Luggage limits- but that’s life!"

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"

Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"

Pros: "They did try to make up time in the air"
Cons: "Plane was a little late arriving so boarding was delayed which then resulted in longer delays as wind gusts kicked in and could not take off after boarding the plane result missed bus connections"

Cons: "On time. Friendly staff"

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"

Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"

Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."

Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "The whole Jetstar team"

Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."

Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"

Pros: "Easy check in, child's play room even though we are not parents, spacious lobby"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."

Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"

Pros: "The ice with my champagne"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours with no nappies for my 1 year old ... no priority boarding for families with shattered children ... lying boarding staff Vallentyn or something like that ... no ability to check in online due to a message saying we had a special request ... we didn't and have checked online to HNL and SIN recently with JQ without a problem."

Pros: "Newcastle airport has made it so easy"

Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"

Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time, even a bit early."

Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."

Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."

Pros: "The staff were very warm & professional from the beginning at check in to the end of departing our flight. Would recommend again."
Cons: "You can only purchase food with a debit card or Credit card."

Cons: "Jetstar nickels and dimes you to death. $4.00 for a cup of coffee as an example."

Cons: "On time"

Cons: "Inconsistencies in interpretation of cabin baggage Browns cows boarding procedures, lack of organization, time wasting system of issuing boarding pass at the gate after scanning tablet or phone, perhaps that should be done at bag drop"

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Exactly at time"
