Easy on and off

The flights with delta were far more pleasantly staffed then the flights with united....

Nov 7, 2018

Not happy about luggage charges. I wasn't charged for my 2 bags going to New Zealand but I couldn't check the 2nd bag coming home without a charge. If you're not charged going you shouldn't be charged on the returned flight.

This return flight was a much better flight than the one over.

Aug 17, 2018

The staff was very efficient and friendly on all 3 of my Qantas flights today

Jul 21, 2018

The woman at the check-in, Nicole, was wonderful. She was incredibly helpful, organized, professional, and efficient. I needed a little help getting my boarding pass and getting my bag checked and she did it all. She's been there 4 years and she should be rewarded for being wonderful.
