Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request.

Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."
Cons: "See above. No in flight entertainment makes you feel like you're flying with the low cost carrier rather than a full service airline."

Pros: "Great service always"

Pros: "Keith the baby whisperer. Who took the babies one by one from there clueless mothers and stopped them crying and screaming. Kieth deserves his own commercial."
Cons: "The food and the seat comfort."
Cons: "Great! On time"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand. It helped that we were on an A380 and because of the lack of the plane being filled both my travel companion and I had 3 seats to ourselves to stretch out. In economy, without that, nothing would have made the trip bearable. That said, the food was good, the entertainment options good, and the after hours water/liquid/snack options were quite good."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Cons: "Qantas actually had to book me on jet star since they failed. Waiting 12 hrs now"
Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."
Pros: "Very smooth, made it alive."

Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."
Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."
Cons: "Seat room on the international flight - became uncomfortable after over 17 hours and could not afford upgrade to business or 1st class."
Pros: "I liked everything from crew to the plane"
Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great. Boarding was quick and easy. Luggage came out quickly at lax and they gave us express connect cards to make our next flight."
Cons: "Individual lights should be smaller and more direct. Person behind us had on whole flight - no sleeping for anyone near us. Flight leaves at 1115. Means you travel through the day and arrive in la in the am. If you didn't get to sleep it's torture. Also flight attendants put on full lights to serve breakfast 3 hours before flight landed! Which was around midnight to the passengers body clocks. United and virgin let passengers sleep"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

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: "Great services."
Cons: "When seat in front was pulled down for sleeping left little room for moving and was too squeezy and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Plane, when I boarded, at least in Coach, smelled like vendors hot-dog water. Took an hour and a half to be offered a drink of anything other than a bottle water. By the end of the flight, trash in the aisles, lavatories were nasty."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Good food. You"
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."
Pros: "I loved the food and snacks and the endless selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Leg space could be a bit better. When people put there seat back the back of their head was right in my face and so I had to recline mine back Hahaha"
Pros: "The staff was great, the individual screens and entertainment options were great. Boarding and service was excellent. Included meal and meal options."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. My husband and I are both 6ft / 1.8m and on such a long flight, 13hrs it got uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very accommodating for such a long flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down causing the plane to be delayed 70 min in an already 15 hour long flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."

Pros: "Good meal - pasta"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Pros: "The crew in the ground and plane were very accommodating for Sydney to New York flight."
Cons: "On the flight from New York to Sydney the crew were rude and indifferent to needs even condescending."
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: "Crew was very attentive. The boarding was slow at first but moved along quickly. We ordered our meal online and got our meal first. Very good food."
Cons: "The seat was small and we are not tall. The bathrooms were always crowded and hard to clean."
Pros: "On Time performance"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled at 2:30am and then I had to try and find another flight rather than the airline automatically rescheduling 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."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Quality of food especially the main meal."
Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. A nice, calm trip."
Cons: "It would have been nice if members of my group could have flown together instead of being scattered around the airplane."
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "Uneventful as it should be!"
Cons: "Non functioning personal lights for reading etc."

Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight.

Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "AA had fantastic service, no complaints"
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
