Flight with Qantas was great! As a caution to others - Immigration in LA was terrible. They were soooo slow, I nearly missed my connection which was 2hrs 25mins after landing. Very stressful! Thanks for the easy booking Wotif!
When I booked my flights many many months ago (last year) I was advised no seat selection available. But, when I went to check on my flights etc much later seat allocation was available but I missed out and ended up squashed in the back row. Now have extremely sore knee, hip and shoulder trying to get into a reasonable position for a very long flight. You should remind early bookers to come back and select their seat on a particular date. I booked well in advance and should not be penalised. I guess I now have the dame problem going home. 樂
Thank you for making my flight comfortable and relaxing
