Cons: "0"

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

Cons: "Have a choice of both sweet & savoury snacks onboard."

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."

Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."

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."

Cons: "Lost 2 of 3 bags. Still don’t have them. Some staff very helpful and empathetic. Some staff very rude and abrasive. Didn’t want to take ownership and work to correct the problem. Had a “not my problem” attitude"

Cons: "very cramped"

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

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: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"

Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."

Cons: "Never went, why would you not know that?"

Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"

Pros: "Excellet service. I liked where I seat that was very much appreciated. Its nice to have delightful meal and having bottle of water in seat pocket was a nice thought. Boarding was excelent. It was called section by section. Cabin crew were very friendly and attentive. I always like to fly with Qantas"

Pros: "Roomy, boarding was efficient, clean"
Cons: "some crew member favoring, service attitude"

Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There was an extremely long line at check-in with only a couple of Virgin Australia attendants working. Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."

Cons: "Boarding made half passengers drag their carryon luggage down stairs, then drag them up the plane. Not acceptable! Almost pulled my back out."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment no food or drinks"

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Good Service"

Pros: "Boarding in Sydney was easier than anticipated. Crew were good"
Cons: "Stop off in Darwin? Really? Star Alliance is a bit of a joke-poor coordination between VA and Air NZ. No lounge access given we’re Air NZ elite members"

Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. Why. Not quite sure."

Pros: "The staff was lovely. Flight was on time, smooth and landed a bit early."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault, but the woman sitting next to me was so large that I was squished against the window. And I couldn't fully put my tray down because of her leg size. I feel terrible complaining about it. She did warn me. But it was very uncomfortable. Luckily it was just an hour's flight."

Cons: "The time"

Pros: "Arrived early"

Pros: "Baggage price"

Pros: "cheese and tomato SW"
Cons: "too many yuppies"

Cons: "upon arrival in LA, I was advised that my luggage has been checked in straight to Seattle, but upon reaching Seattle I was advised that the luggage has been misplaced and they would deliver it in the afternoon to my hotel. Upon waiting for over 12 hours and a number of phone calls to both delta and virgin I was advised that my luggage hasn't even left Sydney and they are not sure when they can deliver it. I have now missed an important work meeting that I came over for and have been in the same clothes for 48 hours Without my clothes and my critical blood pressure medication. I am frustrated/disappointed/furious would be an understatement. I have travelled with a number of other airlines, but this was by far the worst experience"

Pros: "Good crew, very friendly. Went above and beyond to find a passenger at baggage claim who left something on board."
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed."

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

Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy."

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: "business seats did not reclined ..... if i knew that not buying jetstar"

Pros: "They did try to make up time in the air"

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

Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "Good seat and small load so could move around"
Cons: "No entertainment and charges for everything."

Cons: "It was discouraging to know after the posted fare and slapped with different pricing of luggage weight, etc."

Pros: "Very good everything"

Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"

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."

Pros: "Clean planes."
Cons: "Hidden last minute weight fees on carry ons. In our case an extra $360. This is apparently a common complaint. Terrible scam."

Cons: "Beware, they charge $15 per kilogram for over weight luggage."

Cons: "Over one hour at check in."

Pros: "Very smooth boarding and pleasant on board crew."

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"

Pros: "Jetstar, only because we had a wheelchair request was our experience okay"
Cons: "we felt like just a number otherwise"

Cons: "Q"

Cons: "2h delay"

Pros: "Everyone was very polite, to compensate for ripping us off on the cost of our luggage... By the kilo!"
Cons: "No info when we purchased the ticket on Kayak that this airline does not charge by the bag, but by the kilo. No chance to buy kilos when we bought the ticket. Got ripped off at the airport. This airline is is for backpackers, NOT for the international traveler"

Pros: "It was good. Nothing extra. It was efficient. We arrived safely on time."

Pros: "Easy online check in hassle free flight"
Cons: "Worker was too loud while I was trying to nap"

Cons: "All food and drink had to be purchased"

Pros: "I'm still trying to get carry on luggage. they weighed it in Honolulu and said it was fine but the stewardess in Sydney said she could tell it was too heavy by just picking it up. Still don't have it"
