Brisbane-Longreach-Brisbane, Brisbane-Biloela-Brisbane, Melbourne-Launceston and Hobart-Sydney mostly in Q400s. I enjoy QantasLink, often more than their parent company, Qantas. Almost always good friendly service and pleasant flights with good quality (free) wine and snacks - business class level! The only exception was Hobart-Sydney in the Boeing 717 which, these days, feels claustrophobic with the new seats. This latter flight had below par service for QantasLink.

Brisbane - Bundaberg. 6 August. Very friendly service. For a short 50 minute flight, it was a nice surprise to get a tasty snack that was more substantial then the 2 hour QANTAS flight from Melbourne to Brisbane. The free drinks was a nice surprise as well.

Got hit with a 4 hour delay on Ayers Rock to Cairns flight which spoilt an otherwise good flight. Check in team decided that adults couldn't sit in emergency row with under 15 year old in non exit row behind despite being able to reserve on line. Initially suggested we sat 16 rows away which is far less safe, very bizarre. Eventually got 4 seats split by the aisle. Beef curry served for dinner by a very efficient and friendly crew.

HBA-SYD on the new old 717-200. A fantastic step up from the Q400 service offered on the first and last service to Melbourne each day. The 2-3 seating is great. The other bonus is 2 direct services each way per day to Sydney. My flights left on time and arrived on time each way. Staff were friendly and engaging. iPad for entertainment were good to. Cabins were clean and fresh. Positive experience all round.

Darwin to Alice Springs on a B-717. A smooth flight which operated on time. The service was friendly. The seats were quite tight, but OK for a 2-hr flight. The hot part of my vegetarian breakfast was tasteless and unappetising. Ironically, my partner's ordinary breakfast, which was tasty and hot, was vegetarian!

QF 2117, CFS-SYD, June 6 2014. Boarding was easy. The seat was comfortable, enough leg room. We waited while the airport prepared the paperwork for departure. Snacks were served and a good range of drinks offered. The view out the window was good. Magazines provided. Staff were fine. Booking ahead it was cheap.

This past weekend we flew in a turboprop to Launceston. A lovely experience, it flies low enough to enjoy the scenery of Port Phillip Bay and then the landing. On the way we had cold or hot drinks offered, two cookies in a bag. On the way back which was early Monday morning, we had 2 small quiches each, apple, water, little muesli bite, cold/hot drinks which is pretty good for such a short flight. The crew were probably not as immaculate as on longer haul flights but made up for that in warm friendliness. The seats probably had more room than we had in our last long haul flight (Cathay Pacific) and were quite comfy. Of course there is no entertainment but it's such a short flight you don't really need it. A good positive experience I'd happily do again.

I took flight QF1509 from Sydney to Hobart and flight QF1502 from Hobart to Melbourne. Both flights were on the B717-200. The departure and arrival on both flight was on time. Despite only having two cabin crew on board, The customer service was great and they were happy to help. I would definitely take Qantaslink if I have the chance.

Yesterday I flew Qantaslink from Sydney to Dubbo. I was impressed with a staff member taking me aside as I immediately entered the check in area and checking me in, putting in my frequent flyer number and arranging me to have the seat I requested. Check in was completed within 2 minutes as I was not checking luggage. The lounge / waiting area where gates 18 / 19 was not in the best condition, many seats threadbare and torn, but that area offered a great viewing area to watch aircraft taking off, better than the Virgin lounge. The aircraft was a Bombardier Q400, beautiful looking aircraft, clean and tidy inside, seats were very small however, but this was to be expected with a turbo prop aircraft and I was comfortable enough. Crew were friendly and professional, the flight was only 50 minutes and it was great to be in the taxi within 5 minutes of the aircraft arriving at Dubbo.

Flew QantasLink, Melbourne to Launceston, April 2014. Terminal gates at Melbourne are shared with Jetstar - in other words congestion, confusion and poor communication at the terminal are the norm. The flight itself was uneventful. On-time performance was reasonable, so was baggage recovery on arrival.

Flew the Dash 8 -400 service from Melbourne to Adelaide over the weekend. I really like the Dash 8 aircraft and enjoy Qantaslink's service. The aircraft was approximately 30% full on today's flight. The Cabin Manager was very engaging and always smiling, whilst her offsider had that bad QF attitude that their famous for. We were served a small refreshment (which came in a small box consisting of feta cheese, crackers, some chocolate and mints) and a beer. The journey over to Adelaide was generally a good one and will continue to use QF for this Dash 8 service.

Flew Melbourne to Perth and then to Paraburdoo last week. At Perth all checked in ok, the flight left on time but when seated in 25A and partner in B it started to go wrong. No windows and a screaming jet engine beside me. The noise level would have exceeded safe noise levels and only decreased when on decent into PBO. Returned a few days later, arriving at airport to check in. I would think we were about 2/3rds the way in the line. Get to check in and given 25 D and E. Locals we talked to said the flights now are nearly all booked for FIFO's. (Fly In, Fly Outs). You can't even check in online and they said that it is common not get on the flight even though it is booked and paid for and then be placed on standby. Not an enjoyable experience.

First time on the early service HBA-MEL since the change from a jet to a Dash-8 Q400. It was about half an hour slower but otherwise was fine. Staff friendly and the food pack edible. Don't agree with what used to be the busiest Qantas flight out of Hobart being downgraded to a turboprop.

Had a short break in Broome flying QantasLink on their 717 aircraft. Slightly delayed outbound, on time for the return leg. Seats looked new and were reasonably comfortable, but these aircraft are configured with 125 seats not 115 as stated in the inflight magazine, so pitch is only 30 inches. I ordered vegetarian meals - slightly disappointing dry-bread sandwich outbound, but on the return flight they served a small but tasty curry - nice. The cabin crew were friendly and pro-active on both flights - it seems you can count on this with QantasLink, whereas on Qantas it's hit and miss.

Flew Canberra - Sydney return. On time, friendly crew, tasty snack and drink (had just flown an international flight with another airline and Qantas's snack was better). Our bags were left behind but I cannot complain as we barely made the flight due to customs delays and staff did everything they could to actually get us on the plane. Bags were delivered to our home a few hours later.

Melbourne-Launceston. How hard is it to seat Husband and Wife (same booking) together? Small plane, 2 seats either side of aisle - apparently very hard. Called Qantas to see if they could change seating, only to be told I should have chosen seats at time of booking, tried to point out that is not an option on this route, told seat selection is available on all Qantas operated domestic flights!

Perth-Ayers Rock-Cairns return. B717. I am a bigger person and found that the seats were more than adequate with plenty of leg room. Aircraft very clean and in good condition. Cabin crew excellent on both trips, food was light snacks to Cairns and light snacks and a light meal on return which was adequate. Only negative was the lack of in flight entertainment on a flight of approx. 5 1/2 hours in the air.

SYD-CNB-BNE-MKY-BNE in a variety of aircraft, mostly Q400 and B717. Surely one of Australia's best airlines. Excellent service throughout with always, surprisingly, good wines (free). Only negative is occasional loud pop music piped through the cabin before departure (I still have not worked out why some airlines do this? if they think it calms passengers nerves they are very mistaken). Flying on the 'new Boeing 717' on QantasLink is superb.

Fly BNE-EMD-BNE regularly for work. Cabin is tidy, small but comfy and always get fed and watered (choice of red or white or beer after 3pm). Luckily work pays for the flights as a return trip can easily cost $900+! Cabin can be a little noisy due to the propellers but chuck some headphones in and watch a short movie or TV.

Very pleasant flight on fully loaded Dash-8 from BNE to NTL. Flight departed 10 minutes late but arrived on time. Was given emergency exit seat with a bit more legroom to make this journey as comfortable as possible for a guy with my height of 201 cms. Skipped to drink and snack service but seems standard fare.

PER-GER-PER. Annoying start as you have to be bussed to Dash-8-400, and they insist on boarding you 40 minutes before so you can stand in the bus until everyone is loaded. Geraldton is a walk to the terminal which is much faster. New Dash-8 plane specifically for this route, fairly quiet but full flights. Don't sit near the engines if you can avoid it. Services onboard good and pilot good with information. Would prefer the F- 100 that Skywest are running, but QF has better times. On return the dreaded bus back to the terminal. Big disappointment there.

BNE-Hervey Bay-BNE as part of a return trip from MEL using FF points. Dash-8 400 less than 25% full in both directions. Noisy but otherwise comfortable flight with comfortable seats and good seat pitch for 40-45 minute flights. Tasty snacks and drinks offered on both flights by friendly cabin staff. Our carry-on bags were too large for the overhead lockers and were tagged and placed in the hold in BNE and handed back to us on the tarmac at Hervey Bay. We checked them in on the return flight. Qantaslink-Sunstate has a good product on this service and we'd happily fly again.

BNE-MKY-BNE QantasLink Flights but Alliance Airlines operated the sectors I was on this week so the flight standard should be viewed in that respect. The FA's on the Brisbane-Mackay run were not good, one with a terrible attitude, especially towards other crew members which was unfortunately easy to witness. However, the return run from Mackay to Brisbane more than made up for the first leg due to exceptionally good cabin service, including superb wines!, and very good on-time performance in the quick and quiet F-100s.

Perth to Geraldton. Trapped on the ground at Perth for 50 mins - not Qantas' fault as Perth is so busy nowadays. FA's served water and managed to do some work while waiting. Captain kept all informed on PA. Seems to be plenty of legroom even for me at 187cm. Qantaslink 717 services in WA are by Cobham, and of a very high standard. Cabin staff are uniformly excellent. The Geraldton service is by Dash 8-400. Did the return on Skywest - they've taken to using F-100 jets to replace the F-50 turboprop when available. This makes for a very quick trip. Couldn't fault either carrier but glad QF has arrived to give some competition.

Regular traveller on Qantaslink. Snacks on all services good. I find the leg room great and the seats quite comfortable although there is a small recline. All my flights have been on time. Usually fly out of Dubbo, Albury or Brisbane. Crew love to have long chats in the galley while customers sitting with rubbish on tray table waiting to be collected. Standards have dropped over the last couple of years. From chewing gum to no smiles, you just expect it now.

I do 2 or 3 sectors a week on their noisy Dash 8's. When they are late they don't tell you. When boarding - especially CNS - they do not have enough ground crew/gate staff. When flying into HTI you have to race to make your boat connection as they are invariably late. Today I had the misfortune to do GLT-ROK-MKY-TSV-CNS. Both cabin crew yawned all the way. I wanted to apologise for keeping them awake. Their social chatter was their focus. The flight was of course late out of GLT but at every intermediate port there was no effort from flight or ground crews to make up time. If at all possible travel using BNE as a hub instead of the coastal nightmare and use VB for service and efficiency. The days of Qantaslink are surely numbered as VB progressively take them on. Unless of course they get their act together at the last minute.

Have flown SYD-ARM return at least 8 time the past 4 months. Dash 8-300's a little old but plugging away with seats still in good condition. Most of the flight is taken up with the cabin crew serving either a refreshment/light meal, drinks and sometimes mints. In my opinion, better than QANTAS mainline.

What a lovely way to fly compared to Jetstar. I have business in Northern NSW with a choice of Jetstar to Ballina or Qantas Link to Coffs Harbour. Give me Qantas Link every time - more room - a decent snack - a drink in the afternoon - friendly service and far more chance of being on time! Good value for money into Coffs as there is competition from Virgin.

SYD-WGA-SYD. Trip down on morning flight was on the larger Q400. The crew weren't present for most of the flight, and were very robotic offering bare minimum service. The refreshment, whilst nice, was not substantial and handed out in a rushed manner. However, one positive is that the crew phoned ahead for taxis, due to the small size of Wagga's airport and distance from the town centre. Flight back to Sydney was on the smaller Q300. The crew were very friendly, constantly making their way through the cabin to talk to passengers. The service on this flight was a stark contrast to the first flight. Both flights were on time and cabins were clean.

Port Moresby to Cairns return. I think this is the first Qantaslink international sector. Compared to Air Niugini flight is a dream. Good crew, functional catering and plenty of wine if required. It is great to finally see some real competition on this route.

CBR-MEL-CBR. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I thought that there was a noticeable improvement compared to what it used to be like. Was served a fruit bar and some sort of savoury scone along with beverage. The flights were on-time, boarding and check-in wasn't a hassle.

CNS-TSV. Missed flight due to late arrival of Jetstar flight from DRW. Advised to go to Qantas service desk at Cairns airport to obtain new flight details. Only took a couple of minutes to be booked on to next available flight. Received snack on 50 minute flight.

BNE-HVB-BNE. Was a little irritated on the return trip that there was no wine offered, despite departing at 35 minutes late at 1545. Legroom is satisfactory for a 45 minute sector. The snacks are on-par with mainline Qantas economy. Luggage was tagged appropriately for my connection to Qantas Business class at BNE. All-in-all, QantasLink is doing a reasonable job on their short routes, but I can't get past not being offered a glass of wine to apologise for a late departure, especially 15 minutes before the bar service officially begins, and even more-so since the full economy fare is almost the same as the BNE-SYD full economy fare on Qantas.

SYD-CFS: return flight on Qantaslink Bombardier Q400. Flight was smooth (despite inclement weather) and quiet. Food was very good and served from boutique style Australian food producers. Although I am not generally a Chardonnay drinker, I would happily enjoy the Chardonnay served on the flight at home. Service was with a smile, personal and efficient. Overall, it was an excellent flight. A nice change from the plastic faced Virgin Blue staff and the magazines with Richard Branson on nearly every page.

EMD-BNE Dash 8 400 one class cabin, good flight with friendly attentive cabin staff who did all they could. Snack and coffee served (no alcohol before 4pm), seats were leather and comfortable for short haul but no recline. I am 6' and found there to be more than adequate leg room. An excellent service that other airlines could learn from.

BNE-HVB-BNE in Dash 8 300 and Q400 aircraft, excellent flights. I would happily fly QantasLink all around Australia if I could. Superb service for short flights which were on-time despite poor weather. Excellent wine (free) on these short flights. Often the best service on Qantas family of airlines is the smaller internal flights with young and enthusiastic staff of QantasLink - they have an entirely better attitude compared with many of their long-serving senior colleagues on the long-haul services of Qantas.

Alice Springs to Darwin. Whilst no entertainment options, I found the flight rather pleasant with a service that was that bit more personal than regular Cityflyer. The food was good and ample. Leg room was sufficient, quiet aircraft and friendly staff made what would have been an otherwise average trip more bearable.

MEL-LST-MEL on Qantaslink Q400s - excellent on-time and comfortable flights with hardworking flight attendants. Return late afternoon flight from Launceston offers free top quality wine plus a snack and coffee - better than some business class flights I have had on other carriers.

Perth/AyerRock/ Cairns on B717. Great legroom, far superior to the others. Great service which on each leg included a drink and snack followed by a meal. Cabin staff very good. Pity I cant fly them on main routes. My only very small gripe is no entertainment options.

Melbourne-Devonport return on the Q400. Pleasant flights, friendly service and a tasty snack each time. The return flight operated 35 minutes late. The main let-downs concerned handling at Melbourne Airport. Qantas needs better signage to the bag drop counter for people who have checked in online. The QantasLink departure lounge is a dark and cavernous place. And the baggage from our flight was offloaded onto a carousel with baggage from two JetStar flights: people were milling 4-deep around the carousel trying to see their bags, while the next carousel was not being used at all!

MEL-Devonport. Some 10 minutes after scheduled departure time, a very embarrassed pilot announced that not a single checked bag had been delivered to the plane. After yet more delays, we finally left some 45 minutes late. I regretted not choosing REX into Burnie instead of this carrier. On arrival into Devonport, the captain stated he still could not find any explanation for this logistics breakdown at Tullamarine. (I assume it was industrial as unloading off my return Jetstar flight into the same terminal was extremely slow.

MEL-LST on Dash-8. The 300 series not as nice as new Q400 due to vibration and cabin noise, but comfortable seat with ample leg room. Warmly welcomed by FA with two crew serving a tasty scone, OJ and hot drinks. 1/5th of the cost of other carries for this Christmas eve flight. Priority hand luggage accepted on boarding in Melbourne and handed back on the tarmac in Lauunceston with a cheery Merry Christmas, would rate as excellent except for the older aircraft.

BNE-HVB-BNE superb evening flight on QantasLink in a somewhat small Dash8 200 Series. However, this was ideal for a short 40 minute flight gliding over the northern beaches and Fraser Island and being served snacks and repeat serves of an excellent wine (as good as business class wines on many airlines) and all this for an economy airfare. FA attentive and very competent to get so much accomplished and provide good service for such a short flight. Return morning flight serves coffee with the same FA with good service. Flights all on-time with courteous check in service at the adequate regional Hervey Bay Airport.

Perth to Bundaberg return. Except for the wait at Brisbane (4 hours on return) was happy with the aircraft and the service. Loved being able to put our luggage on at Perth (and Bundaberg on the way home) and not having to check in again at Brisbane.

BNE-HVB-BNE. Surprisingly good experience. Q400 was nice little aircraft, during 50 minutes flight, cake, tea and coffee was served. Professional and pleasant cabin crews, no Qantas club at Hervey Bay airport, not even security check, it was a little bit scary. In general it was really pleasant and surprising trip.

I recently travelled on a Qantaslink dash 8 300 Mel-LST service and found the service remarkable. I was greeted in such a friendly manner, legroom was excellent considering the size of aircraft and snack service and the complimentary wine was quite unexpected for a regional service and flight time just over an hour. I have also heard that LST dash services are being upgrade to Q400 services can anyone comfirm this?

Weipa-Cairns. I could hardly believe the comments below about this Qantas Link route. I have been travelling this route regularly in the past year. It is usually late and often by hours. When delays occur there is no information available at Weipa airport and the Qantas call centre cannot tell you what is happening.
