American Airlines flight in LAX to CLT was delayed 4+ hours after we flew 16 hrs to get there. It was very uncomfortable waiting that long and the airport was freezing. Quantas flights were perfect! Couldn’t get any better! American Airlines also damaged our bags. When we got them in CLT they were damaged bad (handles broken off/huge dents) We were so tired and ready to get home we didn’t stand in the long AA line to make a claim but I took pictures of both Bags in baggage claim.

Some of the entertainment on board was old, should be reviewed.

Everything was fine except that there was no separate line for wheelchair/assistance needed people either to checkin luggage or for security clearance.

They don’t tell you to download the Qantas app ahead of time to get the rest of entertainment and (maybe?) WiFi services, so do this before you board!

Total carry on bags is 7 kg (15 lb) and they do weigh the bags. I had to check one of my carry on bags for an extra thirty bucks.
