Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew did their best, but that wasn't great."
Cons: "We pre ordered vegetarian meals for my vegetarian daughter, and the flight attendant went out of her way to mention that there was nothing ordered. Original direct flight from LAX to Sydney was delayed by almost 12 hours for "maintenance", so we were rerouted via SFO and Brisbane. 15 hours took 24"

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: "all automatic check in without any stress"
Cons: "service is prefunctory without heart"
Pros: "We strayed to competing airlines the last few trips, but can't best Qantas for friendly service, inclusive and on time departure"
Pros: "Staff, seat (exit seet)"
Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Cons: "Long delay for the flight"
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."
Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process for economy passengers."

Pros: "It was all good, start to finish."
Pros: "Fantastic cabin crew and fantastic maître’d in the first class lounge at Melb International airport. Honestly the best service we have ever received from start to finish from Qantas. Thank youalso the vegetarian and vegan meals were great unlike previous years. Thanks again"
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."
Cons: "breakfast service slow and comlcated"
Pros: "Food was very good and crew was excellent"
Cons: "As always, the seats felt too cramped"
Pros: "The food, movies and service."
Pros: "Individual usb charge port and meal"
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."
Cons: "I made the same flight last year on a newer plane. This time I missed having water bottles available at all times."
Pros: "Great customer service on board the plane. Super service at check in."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Cons: "The wait time for checked baggage in Melbourne was unacceptable ... 45minutes. This is disgraceful in comparison with other countries. It adds a significant delay to overall journey time."
Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"
Cons: "No dairy and gluten free option"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "I had a flight Auckland-London, booked through Emirates but operated by Qantas. The flight got to London with a delay of 2 hours 20 min, because they made us wait 2 hours 20 min more than planned in Dubai, where incidentally all the other Emirates flights had no delay, only our Qantas one. This made me lose my next flight (to Luxembourg) and have to pay for a new flight and stay that night in London. Since I had booked them separately, no one helped or offered any compensation."
Pros: "I was really looking forward to flying international on Qantas to NZ, only to find out the flight was actually on American Airlines instead. The plane was dirty, the seats crammed together, and the flight attendants seemed genuinely pissed off to have to serve the passengers. American just doesn't have the level of service or cleanliness for international flights. Avoid this airline if possible."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding to help with a defect entertainment centre. They really went out of their way to keep us happy and to solve the problem. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "The seating, streaming movie choice and food exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Five hour delay due to faulty maintenance at LAX. Pilot (rightly) refused to fly until maintenance work correctly completed. Plane then diverted to Brisbane to change crew, en route to Melbourne."
Pros: "I liked flying with Qantas, crew service was okay, food was okay, however, ticketing agents were very helpful during both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Crew was a little rude to cabin passengers, airline points didn't transfer well, and food was a little bland."
Cons: "7hr+ stopover for a trip that takes 4.5hrs to drive. Next time I'll just drive and park at the airport."
Pros: "It was a safe and clean flight. We left BNE an hour late (due to late plane arrival form SYD) but landed on time."
Cons: "I have always been a fan of Qantas but I do not recall your food offerings to be this bad from my last flight in 2012. It is less than meh. Most passengers relied on inflight entertainment system (I preloaded my iPad Pro with what I wanted to watch). The system was down most of the flight. They finally got it back after consulting with the ground tech support and rebooting it many times. This impacted most people's experience."
Pros: "offer every passenger a iPad mini"
Cons: "Poor landing, not confortable from decending to touch down"
Pros: "I left my cell phone on my seat. When checking in for connecting flight in Sydney notified agent. He took info and gave me the number to call for lost items. The phone was returned prior to take off. Had to be retrieved from Domestic Terminal and transferred to International Terminal"
Cons: "The plane was old"
