Qantas - good or bad?

I'm flying with Qantas to Melbourne next month, and i was wondering if anyone had any feedback, good or bad regarding their economy service? What's the legroom like? Good seats to request, etc.

no doubt people will have either really good or really bad stories to post, but i consider qantas to be a par airline longhaul. They will get you there, with around 32 inches seatpitch (about average) and supply free meals and bar service. If your on the 747 (which is most likely) then the majority of flights have seatback tvs, if your on 767 you will deffinatly have a seatback tv. The staff in my experiance are polite. I hope you have a good journey.

If you think BA is ok... and don't mind airlines like Lufthansa, KLM or SAS then you'll find Qantas ok....

If you expect service like the Singapore Airlines standard... then you'll be disappointed.

You may need to trip the drinks trolley driver to catch it....

In short, and in general agreement with the previous posts, Qantas might be rated as being similar to an intercity bus service. No serious issues, but nothing much to reccommend the experience, either.

They'll get you there whilst offering you a bland and unremarkable experience. They are about exciting and interesting as a kiss from your sister. (well, *my* sister, anyway).
