  1. Qantas used to be renowned for customer service ranked second to none – Now all I have experienced is Customer service ranked None. My daughter tried to reach Qantas – frequent flyer customer service last week – there was over 1 hr wait times on the phone – it was a medical emergency . This week I tried calling Qantas – to book an urgent flight on the phone – Less than 24 hrs before departure – again – over an hour wait – This is not customer service – This airline is investing its money in self promotion instead caring for customers as it used to – I wrote and email – requesting urgent response – and no reply . Instead I get stupid destinational offers – Im not going to book any offers id the airline i used to support does not support me.
