Airline reviews

Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"

Pros: "Service, food entertainment and catching up the lost time"

Cons: "Seats are too small, uncomfortable. We had a 50 minute delay in departure."

Pros: "Crew were super helpful. Have flown with other airlines, but have to say Qantas crews are very professional and helpful. They go that extra mile."

Pros: "Good entertainment, tasty food, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Good crew, efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "1. The entertainment system had good choice, but screen resolution wasn't as good as recent flights with Lufthansa, SIA, Malaysia Airlines and AirNZ 2. Nowhere near enough toilets in the middle of the cabin, had to queue over 20 minutes 3. The announcement said water refill stations - where?"

Cons: "Food. They ran out of the fruit plate and the other was inedible."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Not enough toilets - always a queue. More leg room."

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

Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"

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: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"

Pros: "Food and comfort of the seat"
Cons: "The USB charger, the whole entertainment, anything on the remote including light control and bell, stopped working! I wasn't given enough attention, i had to chase the crew a few times, it was a 14 hour flight with nothing working, miserable experience. I was offered a window seat, which i hate, without considering to give me an upgrade. I was given 5,000 Qantas points, i don't know if they can be moved to my AVIOS."

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

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

Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."

Pros: "The Qantas lounge in Singapore is very nice. Nothing special relative to some others like Cathay, but lots of showers and good food are the key for a stopover, and the Qantas Lounge has that. The meal options are better out of Singapore than coming in to Singapore, The "order ahead" breakfast concept, where you place your order for breakfast when you board has it pros and cons. The personal service is nice, but one needs to know almost 12 hours ahead of time what they feel like eating. Overall a positive, but for me, it's hard for me to anticipate my appetite. It was my first A380 flight (together with the Sydney - Singapore leg), and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful."
Cons: "Mostly an issue with security, two separate very long lines. The lines are marked priority and economy, but those are not adhered to. The seats in business class are not very comfortable. I feel like I had more comfortable seats 15 years ago on BA, and the world has come a long way since then. The planned upgrades are sorely needed."

Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food choices, great service."

Pros: "Excellent service and helpful staff."
Cons: "Some seats including mine did not recline, looked like the engineering service have missed checking mechanisms."

Pros: "Excellent value for money, great food which is normally a no no for me, Charming and attentive cabin crew service, making a journey enjoyable !"

Cons: "We did not make this flight"

Pros: "Staff were friendly but emeriates offer a much better overall service"
Cons: "Long wait times onew calling quantas customer service"

Pros: "Flight ran on time Cabin staff good"
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for normal sized person Food choice poor Maybe seat backs could be fixed in place (as in the US)"

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

Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"

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: "Flight from LAX was delayed 2 hours so I've missed my flight to Auckland. I'm still in Sydney.....a debacle!"

Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."

Pros: "Flight crew were not enthusiastic about their job. Need to do service with a smile & not act like we are burdening when a request for certain service was made."
Cons: "Plenty of movies to watch"

Pros: "I didn't die; also was able to change from middle seat to aisle"
Cons: "- unable to check in online - unable to check in at kisok at airport - belts broke while waiting to drop bag, took forever - there was a leak above my seat, water kept dripping on me - only 1 of 3 options available for dinner meal, did not get the one I wanted; chicken was disgusting - person in front of me was given first choice of breakfast since he didn't get his dinner choice, I was not offered the same preference - my breakfast choice ran out right before the attendants got to me, got screwed again - crew did not apologize or make it up to me"

Pros: "The crew was pleasantly pleasent when passengers make mistakes but firm as need, thus getting what needed done as pleasantly as possible."
Cons: "Entertainment system was stuck and stay stuck on kids program and system had no way to get back to main entry point. Software programmers had either failed to put in a "home" icon / link on the Kids home page. Also, turning system off, and leaving it off for 3+ minutes did not do so either; this likely a failure of software designers to specific such or system itself not functioning per design."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "i wanted to add a bag to my itinerary but 3rd party didnt get back to me in time and i couldnt afford to upgrade at the airport. a little disapointed, probably wont go 3rd party again ."
Cons: "i wanted to add a bag to my itinerary but 3rd party didnt get back to me in time and i couldnt afford to upgrade at the airport. a little disapointed, probably wont go 3rd party again ."

Pros: "Nice crew. Nice food. Nice movies. Smooth ride"

Pros: "Crew was nice and offered extra drinks when asked."
Cons: "Screaming crying babies"

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: "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: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "flight was not full and crew allowed folks to move around and spread out."
Cons: "food was a miss. Too salty, mushy."

Cons: "Didn't bother to offer acting other than fruit juice, water and tea or coffee with the meal seemed in a hurry to get the meal service over"

Pros: "First time I flew Qantas and it was a flight from Melb- Dubai and then Dubai - London. I sat in row 62 and the food three times the food selection had run out the fruits and beef curry. I wasn't able to check in online which was quite annoying. The crew from Melb-Dubai were fantastic. So friendly and talkative and I think one was called Jordan."

Cons: "It was late"

Pros: "The crew was lovely. Food was good, but the presentation is not what it used to be. Rushed. Flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "Plane was a little dated. Boarding the flight in Sydney was a bit chaotic. No fruit like they usually have. Not everything on the menu card was provided."

Pros: "Prompt and efficient with helpful informative checkin (warned that luggage would probably need to be cleared and rechecked in Sydney). Reasonable choice of snacks (inc. crisps that were I think GF - same as in lounge)."
Cons: "BA (FF) lounge facilities at Tegel are pretty limited, but some reasonable snack choices (crisps, fruit, biscuits, ...)"

Pros: "The overall fought was great. The crew was amazing, especially since they had been up since at least midnight to get everything ready for us. They were cheerful and extremely kind."
Cons: "The only reason the food is not ranked lower is the great wrap we had when we boarded. But, the breakfast was just awful. To be fair, I have never had breakfast on a plane that I have enjoyed. But, word to the wise, skip the eggs and always go for the fruit!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled, not told"
