Pros: "good privacy"
Cons: "business class bathroom queue in the morning was troublesome"

Pros: "enjoyed the newer planes"
Cons: "less use of single use plastics. air canada could become a pioneer and use compostavle plastics or better yet the new paper box water bottles!"

Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"

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 leg room. Good food and entertainment."

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work or was buggy for the entire flight and while we got an apology, we got no other compensation. Also, with 2 hours left in the flight, the flight attendants loudly woke everyone up in the plane and forcefully raised everyone's seats, even if they were asleep, so that they could serve breakfast to everyone. That was an incredibly rude awakening."

Pros: "The boarding was on time. The crews were great. Food were good."
Cons: "I reserved for a window seat but I still end up in the aisle."

Pros: "Rob Cumming was the supervisor crew for our section. He was very good at trying to compensate for the big problems that Qantas had created for us."
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Pros: "Direct flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Good price, on sale."
Cons: "Leg room okay unless person in front puts there seat back and then it is almost impossible to be comfortable, even if you put your seat back. Food distribution is done in mysterious ways. Movies were the same coming and going even though it was more than a month between flights."

Cons: "The seat space is a bit small, there is too less Chinese and Japanese movies to choose from."

Cons: "Long delay for the flight"

Pros: "The food"

Cons: "The seat for leg was discomfort!"

Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Very good service"

Pros: "Seats were fine, crew was cherry nice and professional. Enough toilets for the size of the plane."
Cons: "Airplane food is always what it is."

Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Nice airline with lots of room for a very long flight. Seats next to me were empty so I could lay down but unfortunately a bad respiratory illness prevented me from doing that. But still comfortable. Nice variety of food."
Cons: "All good. Movie selection could have been a little better maybe."

Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The 3 Hour Delay in Sydney!!!"

Pros: "Despite the delay in boarding, we were greeted with a smile from the crew. Meal service went well and love the 3 choices of meals offered in economy"
Cons: "Would be nice to check-in for flight on app instead of laptop or tablet"

Pros: "Unfortunately I didn't get to travel, yet I paid $625! What a load of sh!& How is this legal? Sorry I wasn't able to understand 100% of what I read, and was naive to think that your company wasn't profiting off of deceiving customers. It's ridiculous to make someone read through 3 different "terms and conditions" and expect them to check all of the policies of the airline before they commit to the reservation. The wording also doesn't read easy and requires an attorney to read through. This is a scam."
Cons: "I would like to know who is telling me the truth regarding why i $500 was taken from my refund when I was forced to cancel my flight due to not getting my visa. I think it's interesting that as I typed this, as soon as I typed justfly.com or kayak.com, a window popped up encouraging me to write my comment in feedback, not here, yet when I wrote kiwi.com or priceline.com, nothing popped up. This just confirms that there are many people out there that believe they were deceived by these two companies and it's unfortunate that Qantas is looking just as guilty of cheating people out of their hard EARNED money."

Pros: "The food, movies and service."

Cons: "The QF 73 was more than 4 hrs late. The boarding ticket states boarding @16:30, but no one said anything and the PA gave no announcement. The actual boarding did not happen until after 17:00."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"

Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."

Cons: "I had pre-requested a seat and got moved when I arrived but I didn't notice so I couldn't ask to be reseated until I got on the plane and realized. I also found the crew to be blunt and not friendly."

Pros: "We had comfortable seats and a pleasant flight. Food was good for airline food. Plenty of water and fresh fruit available all through the flight"
Cons: "Wasn't able to complete on line check in."

Pros: "Gf food was good"
Cons: "Tight searing"

Pros: "Service and food where good"
Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Passengers were given "meal" vouchers for terminal restaurants but they weren't valid on alcohol (which was needed after 4 hours of waiting!) Boarding was chaotic with everyone anxious to GO! Crew was cranky."

Cons: "No any explanation to delayed about 2 hours that resulted in missing the connected flight for more than 10 hours."

Pros: "Tivi was broken"
Cons: "the crew gave me 50.00$ credit back to next fly I am very impress"

Pros: "food service PJs"

Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."

Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"
Cons: "No dairy and gluten free option"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, and just felt very welcomed from the moment I stepped in. Overall super super awesome"

Pros: "Helpful staff, good vegetarian foods"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very rough ride"

Cons: "My boyfriend and I paid extra to have our seats next to our friends and each other, and they messed up on all 4 flights we had. The first flight they couldn't even make it right and the service lady was very rude and not helpful. I hope I never have to use their service in the future. They should take a page from Alaska Airlines whose service is always amazing."

Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. Qantas was not helpful in rebooking or any type of customer service. The food was awful and we spent an extra 24 hours of waiting/ travel time. Miserable end to a wonderful trip. Terrible!"

Pros: "That it got me home"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."

Pros: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"

Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"

Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"

In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."

Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"

Cons: "Trip was too short."

Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"

Cons: "."

Cons: "i ordered food but it wasnt provided. i havent checked to see if money was withdrawn from my account. i also would have prefered to have westjet connect. there is better selection and i could use my bluetooth headphones"

Soft daily blanket to sleep on. The kennel is strapped shut. WJ. Brings me a tag that shows me my dog is on board. I love flying Weat Jet with my dog. Be sure your dog is in a hard covered kennel with lots of room to stretch. Make sure it's strapped solidly shut. Weat Jet gives you plastic straps to do that. DO IT. Don't be lazy about it. Your dog depends on you to make it safe."

Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."

AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
