“One hour of torture each way.”
Review of Qantas


Reviewed 6 April 2018

Flew from Sydney to Melbourne after our cruise. Was only several minutes late but the first flight in the other direction was a half hour late. Provided with a quiche for lunch - was actually not bad but a very small lunch. Where are the screens now - had miniscule drop down sets that were almost unwatchable. Listened to static affected comedy on headphones. Was an old 737 with miniscule seats & legs hitting the seat in front. Could not fold up my isle arm rest so was super hard to exit or entry. Why do they make this so uncomfortable?

737 should not be used on flights over 3 hours and especially not on Interantional travel. They is hardly any leg room in Economy. There are only 2 toilets at the rear of the plane which is not enough, especially when the plane is full. The Galley is small and located near the toiltes. This makes it very difficult for staff to serve customers as they have to push past passengers waithing to use the bathroom.
I fly Qantas fairly frequently but these planes are not good enough.

The Qantas A380s are a little older now but still one of my favourite aircraft to fly.
On a recent trip back from Hong Kong, I was treated to seat 5A in First Class.
The space was amazing and the ambience quiet.
While the décor might seem a little dated compared to more recent offerings from Asia and the Middle East, it was still super nice.
The vintage bubbles kicked off the journey.
The super prawn laksa was delicious.
After that it was sleep in a rather decent bed with quilt and pillow until 45 min out of Sydney.
Perfect!

Flight was great. Flight is almost three hours long but went quickly. The cabin crew were great, we were served a snake as we left Sydney at 9.35. The snake was ok, ham and cheese foccasia. When we checked out the ingredients on the side of the pack it was VERY high in sodium, so not healthy at all.
The flight left on time and we arrived on Cairns a few minutes early. Great trip
