Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."

Cons: "The food was terrible. Why can’t you just serve a regular plain meal. Why try to be fancy with all these nasty sauces. Give me a regular sandwich for lunch and some simple pasta or something. The only things edible was the fruit."

Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."

Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."

Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled and we were not notified by justfly. Just fly also accepted the flights on our behalf so it mean we couldn't chose the new flights"

Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"

Pros: "CREW WAS HELPFUL AND OBLIGING."
Cons: "IT WAS AN OVERNIGHT FLIGHT FROM DARWIN TO MELOURNE. THE 'SNACK' OF 2 PORK BOA BUNS AND JUICE/TEA/COFFEE OR AN APPLE AND SOME CRISPS, WAS POOR AND COULD DO WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT. RATHER UNSATISFACTORY."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Also - who thought putting call buttons in the armrest was a good idea? We had 10 accidental calls from the people around us alone."

Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "Service fantastic"
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"

Pros: "The 787 dreamliner does an excellent job flying, with reduced cabin noise."
Cons: "The passengers with a small child behind us were very noisy and bumping/pushing into our seat-backs way too much. The boarding was a bit chaotic. Defining the boarding sequence based on row numbers should help."

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"

Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"

Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."

Pros: "We strayed to competing airlines the last few trips, but can't best Qantas for friendly service, inclusive and on time departure"

Pros: "warm food even on domestic flight"

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: "staff were very friendly"
Cons: "the entertainment equipment had a glitch and not function properly"

Pros: "Lunch served was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a bit."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Qantas kept us informed about a delay and were so reliable on making sure everyone was comfortable with the day."
Cons: "Our entertainment console wasn’t working properly. We didn’t have access to our in flight maps or the majority of entertainment options. This hasn’t happened before but it di but it did mean that it was a long flight made longer."

Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"

Pros: "Check-in & flight staff were very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was one hour late. There was no entertainment system on the flight. The snack was mediocre."

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

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Poor meals in cardboard boxes"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"

Pros: "Personnel were very pleasant and helpful. Service was great. Plane was clean and organized."
Cons: "Economy seating is cramped, but I was traveling with my adult son so all was good! Night flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, not fun when there's nothing to do and no place to eat/drink in the waiting area."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."

Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."

Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."

Pros: "Fast efficient. Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Tray table dirty :("

Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."

Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."

Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my dietary needs. The vegetarian meals were all given out leaving nothing for me to eat. He spent the time and effort to prepare and bring me a meal from Business Class. 2 free checked bags is also a big plus."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline. You need to pay extra to be able to preselect your seat. The amount of leg room is atrociously small. The 15 kg. carry on weight limitation is a joke. There were too few bathrooms and one was out of commission to boot."

Cons: "Sold as Qantas. In fact it is Jetstar. No food, no drinks, no entertainment. Qantas personal unfriendly when we went to Qantas desk to check in for, what we thought was a Qantas flight."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "On both my flights, vegetarian wraps were served. They were really unappetising."

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"

Pros: "Staff was great. Friendly, helpful, informative flight crew."
Cons: "Older plane offered nothing to support technology and provided poor entertainment choices."

Pros: "Everything! In the past year, I have flown on 9 flights with Qantas between the US and Australia. Each and every every flight has been comfortable and enjoyable. The flight crew is always friendly and accommodating, the food is satisfactory and I've never experienced a delay. Keep up the wonderful service."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The food was absolutely incredible for such a short and domestic flight. The in-flight entertainment app was also amazing."
