Pros: "all good"
Cons: "all good"

Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."

Pros: ":("
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("

Cons: "Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement. Flight attendant sounded unprofessional over PA Would like more snacks - savoury and sweet, instead of just savoury. Snack was not sufficient for a 3 hour flight landing at 9pm. Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!"

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

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 entertaimnet headset socket was faulty and I had to hold the jack in a specific way so I could hear the vocal channels. Sometimes it just dropped out all together. Tried multiple headsets but having the socket and jack on the inside of the armrest where it was so easily knocked by you leg was so incredibly stupid and made it hard to get comfortable or move position in the seat. First time I've ever seen this on a plane. Ok, so Qantas got us there safely but the inflight movies its what makes it bearable."

Pros: "4 flights in 2 weeks Melbourne Cairns return & Melbourne Coolangatta return. Great staff induction from Qantas all flights were excellent"

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Cons: "Do you really need to be provided with a meal at 11pm just after departure? A decent snack pack would be a better get, and allow people to get to sleep."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."

Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"
Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."

Cons: "See above"
