Our rating:
Advantages of Qantas are the number of destinations in Australia and the Pacific. The fleet is very well maintained. It is also possible to select a seat and check in online. Qantas has several in-flight entertainment systems installed on its aircraft. Apart from the QantasLink-operated Boeing 717s and Dash 8s, every Qantas aircraft has some form of audio video entertainment.
Disadvantages of Qantas are the seat pitch in economy class on long distances. Not too much legroom and on flights via Asia most Asian competitors offer more legroom.

Qantas is a good but average airline. No extraordinary performance but a decent airline with good service. Qantas has many flights to destinations in Australia and the Pacific. It is also possible to book a Round-The-World ticket in combination with British Airways.
