Qantas: a three star airline
► International Business Class Seat is brand new, and very good, all aisle access. Food good, small quanties, but can pre-book meal. Lounges being updated at all major ports.
► International Economy Class Seat is OK, but not leading the pack. Entertainment Ok, limited selection, but Aussie content Food & Drinks so-so food, generally OK. Free bar is good. Aircraft older 747s are not so great.
► Domestic Economy Class Frequent Flyer Scheme generally good, but poor availability thanks to many point earning oppotunities

The service was friendly and attentive,the legroom was decent, but not great, for economy, there were lots of good TV to watch, and the food was good.For such a long transoceanic 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 closedcurtain area) and ask for water. But that's is a small issue.Generally, pretty good flight..

Qantas Review: Great flight, couldn't be better
Value for Money
This is a regular run for me on Qantas from Sydney to Dallas so as a known quantity it really is very familiar. I was in the economy cabin and sat just in front of the galley so it was a bit busy but nothing too disruptive. Could recline my seat without having anybody behind complaining. Being a Platinum frequent flyer has its perks with a personal meet and greet, Jack and Coke to start of the journey and the CSM dropped off some noise cancelling headphones. Food was untouched as I had loaded up in the lounge. The flight itself was uneventful and had a spare seat next to me so could spread out a little. The IFE was not used much save to check the flight map. Have discovered the joys of Netflix. Many folk complain about Qantas and its service but honestly I'm not sure what they anticipate. If you are in a premium cabin then the level of service is different. In Y, the FA's have a lot of people to feed and look after so personal touches may not be there all the time. All in all a satisfying flight as always with on time arrival.

Qantas Review: Great, healthy food in economy
Value for Money
Qantas is one of the few domestic airlines to still offer free food. Their latest menu includes two choices on most flights. I've had the chickpea salad with duck (three small slices) and a good mixed coleslaw with one large but thin slice of roast beef over it.These new choices are both healthy and fresh but also an appropriate size for a meal. Enough to be filling but not bloating. Just the right amount of meat to satisfy meat eaters.A huge improvement from recent fare and certainly from the bad old days of one brown, one white slice sandwich with stodgy filling guaranteed to please noone.IFE is nonexistant on domestic, they have some wistreamed thing that I couldn't be bothered installing on my full android phone. Businesses should stop assuming that your phone is for them to clutter up with apps. I don't have memory for an app from everyone I do business with get real.

Qantas Review: Be careful with your seats
Value for Money
A pretty dire experience. On checking in, we were offered "better" seats, and we were moved from the middle of the plane (seats which we had chosen well in advance) to seats in the back of the plane which did not recline. Also, we were stuck next to the bathroom, with the lights on throughout the flight and the fully reclined passengers in front of us. The best part was the guy in front of us throwing our carry on around in the bin so he could get his two very large suitcases in. The cabin crew never said a word. Next time we'll fly the other airline.
