The seats that we had were right next to the toilet, meaning that every time someone used the lavatory, light shone directly on to us and the noise was quite loud.

We were in premium economy, needs to be renamed as it certainly was not economy. Great service food slept very soundly. Well worth the price

Only one complaint, the stuff The check-in counter, would not help out with the required visa to Sydney Australia, even though there was no lineups . An easy process if you know how.

Would definitely recommend flying with Qantas. The staff were really helpful and patient with all questions. When our flight was cancelled due to engine failure, they made sure we were well fed and had a place to rest with a shuttle bus to and from the hotel. The staff really made the whole ordeal a lot more bearable and the seats on the airplane had quite a bit more leg space.

Re-booking after flight cancelation very smooth and painless
