Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Aircraft and crew service was excellent. Seats were not too comfortable"
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice for 14+ hours flight"
Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"
Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."
Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."
Cons: "Crew was extremely noisy and not mindful of most of the cabin sleeping. Speaking loudly, joking with one another. Very unprofessional. In some instances woke people up (in economy) and made them put their seat up because someone behind them wanted to eat at 23:20. Not friendly either."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfy seats. Fresh fruit was great!"
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alot of the check-in consoles were closed when we got to Brisbane which is the only way to check if you can't do it on line."
Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great food, great service!"
Cons: "Too dark to see to get into my carryon and then lost something out of it but couldn’t see it"
Pros: "On time, could have actually been early, but no."
Cons: "Uncomfortable cramped seats, selection of entertainment was dire, nothing I wanted to watch."
Cons: "Great! On time"
Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"
Pros: "A 1950 flight from PVG-SYD and Qantas did everything well to gear it toward a restful flight."
Cons: "Not exiting from the front door after the flight while sitting in Business was slightly unpleasant."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
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."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."
Cons: "Waiting at Brisbane Airport to fix the AC."
Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."
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."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."
Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; the section at the back of the plan with drinks and small snacks was also good music selection was also excellent"
Cons: "the meals were not great and spaced out a lot. no green tea, no eyemasks and socks provided"
Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; music selection was also excellent"
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."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "I was seated between a couple who were both overweight and spilling into my seat leaving me with less room. If I pay for a seat I should get a whole seat."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Comfy flight. The staff were really helpful."
Pros: "Relatively roomy"
Pros: "Smoked salmon kale salad delicious"
Cons: "Space cramped in economy"
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Room was quite cold."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
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: "Very little. Even though I'm sure I wasn't suppose to, my seat allowed me to put my feet up on the wall. At least I was able to elevate them a bit."
Cons: "First, the flight was delayed an hour and a half. No gate was announced until just before boarding. Afraid of missing my flight, I didn't doze even though I had been awake for 20 hours at this point. Once I got on the plane, the seats were so small in economy my hips were pressed against the arm rests and I am not a large person. The man next to me was pressing through over to my side. We both had difficulty opening the tray for meals because they were in the arm rests (not that it mattered, we were never served good). The controls for the entertainment and lights were in the arm rests as well and there was no way to see them because your thighs were pressed against them. The screen for my entertainment was crooked and flickered. The charging port did not work for my cell phone. The earphone jack had to be wiggled and wiggled and then I had to hold my leg perfectly still not to bump it. I eventually gave up trying to use the entertainment screen. I preordered my meal online, but waiting for dinner, already exhausted, I dozed off. I didn't get dinner and no one came around the rest of the trip and offered any refreshments. No water, no snack, nothing. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I saw a crew member for the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Absolutely wonderful flying experience!!"
Cons: "A little more leg room would have been nice."
Pros: "I like the services"
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: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."
Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and beverage service."
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Pros: "crew always pleasant big pillows & blankets"
Pros: "Very well organized. Crew is very friendly. Lots of little perks on the flight that many other companies don't provide."
Pros: "I was able to make a connection without too much hassle"
Cons: "I had a economy plus flight booked and should have been on a Qantas from LA to JFK but due to delays I was put on an AA flight and downgraded to economy. I could have just as easily been upgraded to business - you chose not to do that."
Cons: "Seats did not fully recline in business class"
