Not good at all

Cons: "The dim sums could be changed for something else."
Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around."
Cons: "For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and considerate."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"
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: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Pros: "What was there to like!"
Cons: "That i couldn't board this flight. Duh!"
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: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"
Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "The crew, food and the entertainment were great."
Cons: "I booked for a window seat but I ended sitting on the aisle. I will double check the seating on my return flight so it won't happen again."
Cons: "This airport is disorganised and undersized for the volume of patrons passing through. Was frustrated with the poor response of Sydney airport go manage an obvious failure of their baggage handling system. No fallback procedure was activated(manual for eg) to actually progress baggsge hangling even for those with connections to make. Disappointed and embarrassed by the defensive attitudes of staff who were given no Support by mgt of either airport or airline."
Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"
Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food choices, great service."
Pros: "."
Cons: "Crew kept skipping over me and trying to laugh it off. Annoying and unprofessional"
Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Great service, easy flight."
Pros: "*Our flight from LA to Melbourne on January 7th was cancelled. Fortunately, Qantas crew members were able to place us on an American Airlines flight to JFK the very same day."
Cons: "Flight turned around after being in the air for two hours. No compensation was provided for the incovinevnce. rebooked on a Virgin flight. I want to be refunded for the qantas flight."
Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"
Pros: "Attentive staff"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "very narrow seating. no snacks at back of plane no plug in for computer or cell phones. outdated plug in for headphones"
Cons: "Flight from LAX was delayed 2 hours so I've missed my flight to Auckland. I'm still in Sydney.....a debacle!"
Pros: "Again, cabin crew is friendly and no last minute gate changes,"
Cons: "The food was gross, which could be a just a cultural difference in food tastes. There were no functioning USB charger ports on the return flight even though the ports were present. No wifi, which is a first. Most airlines I fly on these days always have some type of wifi. Lastly, the 'touch-screen' on the seat for entertainment barely worked. Buttons didn't work no matter how much you touched them. There was a delay and the selection of movies and tv were pathetic. I will not be flying Qantas again."
Pros: "Got away on time and landed early."
Cons: "Boarding pass scanners broken - so couldn't scan from a phone. And then the boarding pass printer wasn't working properly either. Also these planes are very noisy."
Pros: "I was worried about the long flight; but it went very well. The crew was so friendly and I felt very taken care of. The food services were well-timed. Awesome selection of movies and shows. We were provided a blanket, pillow, eye mask etc."
Cons: "I wish business class was not so expensive."
Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."
Cons: "The check in process for baggage at Sydney."
Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."
Pros: "Dinner on a 1 hr flight! Unheard of in US in coach."
Cons: "Small seats (but same as our 13hr United flight from SYdney to Sam Francisco). Tolerable on 1hr flight."
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, and just felt very welcomed from the moment I stepped in. Overall super super awesome"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat cushions are stiff and uncomfortable. And the seat backs were in my face the whole time."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very rough ride"
Pros: "Boarding food choices actually got drinks and food with Ticket price. Didn't have to buy extra food or drink They actually serviced toilets on flight. Got headsets and you could choose your own entertainment at your seat"
Cons: "There is no room between seat if person in front of you Puts their seat back. You have zero leg room and you can't Get out of your seat to go to bathroom. If all seats are taken in coach you are quite screwed"
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment system. Unfortunately, I discovered season 6 of "Game of Thrones" too late to binge the entire season. The crew was friendly-- it was as comfortable as a 16 hour flight in the economy cabin can be."
Cons: "I did not get much sleep-- I was watching movies and TV!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. I sat on a window seat this time and it was really roomy. I was in disbelief how more roomy it is compared to an aisle seat."
Cons: "2hr delay leaving LAX"
Cons: "It's a long flight, so I get that the crew aren't necessarily in the cheeriest mood at all times. But it's a long flight for the passengers as well. Approaching one's duties with something more than stone-faced grimness would go a long way."
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection put on another carrier that flight then delayed arriving 4.5 hours late. Second leg frequent flyer points claim on other leg denied even though original flight qualified. Still chasing Qantas to get points."
