The flight was really fine. No on board movies or TV. Food was nothing to brag about, but just ok.
The flight is on time unlike my previous flights/vacations
luggage checked has been ridiculous. it was checked 4 times prior to boarding.
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Fix the engine beforegand to prevent any delays"
Cons: "Food smooth"
Pros: "The food improved compare from last year but during the 16 hours and 40 minutes flight the crew should have come out and ask the passenger or offer some drinks. They only came out when then they serve the meals. It’s a long travel, they should have checks the passengers if they needed anythin"
Cons: "Checking in your luggage take too long. The staff specially the Manila, seems not well train because they keep going to each other and discuss things or asked the other crew what to do. I started checking in at 4:08 pm and I finished past 6:00. Crews should checks the passengers every now and the"
Cons: "Food and service. Seat comfort."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and very attentive to passenger needs. Airbus 350 very comfortable in economy class good leg room and large entertainment screen with good selection.Manila airport is"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. when there was announcement for boarding, they delayed again when everyone was already standing in line. Then they asked us to sit down but there was no seats. it was hot and no aircon. the security process was strict and prisonlike because it was a USA bound flight."
Pros: "Great Flight Crew very Pleasant"
Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, movie and tv options were great."
Cons: "I appreciated that I was given a gluten free meal but one side was hot and the other side was slightly cold still. I am not sure how that could be possible, but it was my experience on that flight."
Pros: "Overall experience and the room in economy was execellent."
Cons: "Food was alright but could have been better."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and fake leather. Staff were surly."
Pros: "I like how the flight was non- stop."
Cons: "The seat was cramped and uncomfortable. Although I am a person of short stature, my back was achy throughout the flight."
Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "The salmon dish was however good and more than made up for it."
Pros: "Crew service was satisfactory it"
Cons: "It’s been three days and they haven’t located my 1 of my 4 luggage’s . Nobody deserves this kind of treatment."
Cons: "7:55 pilot says we will take off on time at 8:00. Then sat on plane for hour, finally took off at 9:20."
Pros: "the bnew a321neo plane. love the new business class seats for its short haul flight"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."
Pros: "early arrival"
Cons: "to many security check in art Airport."
Cons: "Delayed no announcement made no compensation I am on an official schedule this is very unfortunate"
Pros: "The ground stewardess assisted me in boarding my flight since the boarding gate was almost close"

Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."

Cons: "Because of Long lines at Thai immigration, I made it the gate as my Group was boarding. I was afraid I was going to be late."
Pros: "The crew was fine.I appreciated that it was non-stop."
Cons: "There was about 8" of leg room in the economy section. Not enough to move my feet around. The beef sausage breakfast was tasteless and not very warm; the eggs were watery. The movie was extremely violent. I worry about the children on board who could see it even if they couln't hear it."
Pros: "Flights were on time! Food was good. Service was great!"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "More leg room for tall people because this is a disability issue for us being crammed and cramp up"
Pros: "great cabin upgrade...competitive to other airlines with newer planes"
Cons: "Why are there so many security lines to go through. Before going to the check in counter there's a security line; at the immigration there's a security line which I believe is required there; then at the gate there's a security line. There are just too many security lines to go through"
Pros: "Liked the smooth flight"
Cons: "Took too long at check in"
Pros: "YOU NEED TO ADVISE PASSENGERS TO BRING WARM CLOTHING BECAUSE THE PLANE WAS VERY COLD DURING FLIGHT. I NEEDED TWO BLANKETS"

Cons: "Seating a little bit cramped in coach."
Pros: "Seat is good and nes"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours!! It was so frustrating!"
Pros: "The flight staff was more than accommodating to my husband and myself as we both had become very ill . They did everything they could do to make us comfortable. The airline put us up in a hotel for the evening and got us on a flight the next day."
Cons: "First I would like to say I understand things go wrong that are out of the airlines control but being grounded on a run way for ten hours is absolutely ridiculous . We both became very ill about two hours after eating on the flight to the point of needing medical attention. The delay ended up costing us $179 extra dollars for our car parked and it would be more than reasonable and expected for you reimburse us for this cost. We have a receipt for the proof of this cost . You can reach me by email email@example.com Sincerely Michelle bennett"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Flight said on time but we sat on the tarmac for an hour just to depart. Arrival was supposed to be "on Time" but in reality 1 hour late. It is an inconvenience for family members picking you up and the flight is not on time as noted. Please advise properly so arrangements for pick up at the destination can be scheduled properly. Other than that , all was good."
Cons: "My seat from Los Angeles airport was giving to another passenger..I was ask if I paid extra??? They gave a middle seat for 14hrs flight same as coming back Manila to Los Angeles ... No priority at all.."
Pros: "Great staff on the plane & at the counter! They helped us get our luggage from customs."
i book the extra luggage through the site. but the next day i gat the mail that can not book and it was refused. and once i go to airport counter and did not even take the luggage to airport because it was refused. but the airport the airline charged me hkd 240 and then only issue the boarding pass. and they said it is in their system. point is it is miss communications between your and the airline. but you forcefully charge the money to me. i appreciate to check the issue and do the necessary refund.
Waited Over 5 Hours for a 1 1/2 hour Flight. Manila AirPort is absolutely pathetic. This was after Cebu Pacific personnel tried to overcharge me for excess baggage.

Pros: "All the crew were super pleasant and friendly despite attending to very rude European passengers."
Cons: "Keep up the excellent work!"
Cons: "Cebu Pacific has to be the worst airline I have ever flown with. Boarding alone was so disorganized. People were trampling each other. The flight times changed twice. I lost over $200.00 with no refund. Said I could get credit. Yeah, like I would ever fly with them, again."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Super delayed flight they dont offer even water and to think we are travelling with children."
Cons: "We were delayed by 7 hours. The ground staff did their best. They gave some snacks which I'm sure Filipinos like but were not to my tastes. Sitting on a hard floor for 7 hours with nothing to eat before a 3.5 hour flight is not my idea of a good day!"
Pros: "All is helpful"
Cons: "Make the plane clean..."
Pros: "Nothing. Website did not notify me when booking that visa for us was required so I did not even get to fly to my destination which was a waste of my time and money to drive 5hrs to the city and not get any of my money back."
Cons: "Put a notification when rsvp’n ticket that certain countries need a visa approval from their country before booking. Wasted my time/money so I didnt even get to go to Vietnam n wasted a 5hr drive to my city. At least could have gave me some future discount code since I couldn’t get any money back"
Pros: "Crew was professional and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "It is almost a given that most domestic flights to Manila are delayed and our flight was 1 hour and 10 min delayed. Fortunately, I was getting frequent updates that helped with the planning on when to leave for the airport."
Pros: "Clean and new plane"
Cons: "Delay of one hour after biarding due to congestion at manila...this has to be the worlds worst for delays"
Cons: "Its a cheap airline.what do u expect?"

Cons: "At least a small meal and drinks on a 8.5 hour flight."

Pros: "In time departure"
Pros: "At least no gate change or delay..shock shock"
Cons: "Checkin as usual was understaff and slow....agent refused to enter our getgo numbers or change our seat assgnment as had been done in the past. Refused to orint boarding pass because i had on my phone....i dislike this and want paper backup! Speaker system for gate announcements at term 3 is the worst! Boarding is always bad but now a new system to read tickets is worse than ever! My knees touch the seat in front it is so crammed...at least short one hour of discomfort."
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"
Pros: "When we got to Manila, it was raining so bad. We had to get off the plane onto a bus. They handed us an umbrella to keep dry from the deluge. It was much needed, under the circumstances."
Cons: "Because of the weather delay, I made it by the skin of my teeth to my next flight. It was quite stressful waiting for my baggage to come out so I could re-check in to my next destination."
Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "After dozens of flights finally left and arrived on time. Actually had a jetway at manila too! Was seated in premium seats row 2 ...what a difference cimpared with the crapoy cramped rows in the back!"
Cons: "Boarding was a fiasco, no zones called. Wheelchairs and children were ignored and were treated no different. Flight sttendants never smiled and just were going thru the motions..very disappointing Cebu"
Pros: "The timing of the Cebu Pacific flight from Bali to Manila was fantastic. Short immigrations lines in Bali and upon arrival in Manila. Seats were better than expected, although we paid extra for the 2nd row. Crew was professional."
Cons: "We pre-ordered food and it was soggy and over cooked. Not worth it. Flight left late. Flight attendants were not helpful,"
Pros: "Everyone is profession and the food is great. The value is spot on!"
Cons: "No wifi, no food or drinks provided. Checkin was a very difficult process with employees giving us different answers on same topic. No display in terminal where to check in on an International Flight. Charged us to check one bag each and would not allow us to carry it on although the same bags were allowed as carry on from NGO-MNL Were told by one person we could checkin for our flight, told were we’re at wrong counter and international counter was not open yet. My checked bag was ripped open somewhere in the process of being transported!! I don’t think I will fly this carrier ever again!"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic scramble. Take off was an hour late waiting for runway space. Cheap and disorganised."
Cons: "Line for check-in was terrible. Wait was more than 45 minutes just to check in."
Cons: "First we pur Cebu Pac flight to davao at 7 am was cancelled dn we book another flight to davao at 5 pm dn it was delayed it is so stressful and inconvenient specially i have a 1 year old baby boy"

Pros: "The view from the plane was ok. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We were the second flight out of Manila, and the plane was 3 hours late. You have to pay for everything on the plane, even water. The terminal had to be 90 degrees."
Pros: "Very efficient!i was very happy with whole flight!"
Pros: "we had a very tight connection from landing in Manila to catching our flight to El Nido. Cebu's team lead us through the check in process to expedite and save time and even ordered a special shuttle bus for us to take between terminals at the airport. I was very impressed and will be telling everyone I know how great Cebu is."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "We boarded the plane just on time. I wasn't expected ot would be that food."
Cons: "We landed pretty late. ETA was 11:25pm. We landed almosg 12midnight."

Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Flight delayed over two hours."
Pros: "very cheap fare"
Cons: "noisy co-passengers, the crew should ask them to stay quiet but they didn't do anything"
No REFUND!!! My flight was delayed by 5 hours then 6 more hours making it unusable. No refunds!!!! They called it a minor delay. Because my connecting flight wasn't with kayak, no refund.
Clark security personnel are absolutely the worst. I was threatened by their chief of security for asking a question about what is allowed as a carry on.

Cons: "CUSTOMER SERVICE"
Pros: "The comfort of the seat, its wider... Since I am broad shouldered I need a comfy seat."
Cons: "We just landed and the two cabin crews were chatting. One passenger stood up since she couldn't hold it and that she really needs to vomit one cabin crew laughed loud when the guest went inside the restroom. Maybe the cabin crew was surprised, but it wasn't a good to see."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Check in was ok iwith all our checked in bags tagged as Fragile to signify priority baggage that came with our AirAsia Visa credit card perks. Boarding was slightly chaotic."
Cons: "Room for improvement for priority checked in baggage upon arrival in Manila -- only 1 out of our 5 priority bags came out first while the other 4 came in last together with all the other non-priority bags."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants, very good and efficient check-in, food on-Board was acceptable."
Cons: "Narrow seats, cramped, flight time change, gate changes, crazy and inefficient terminal in KL with long walks."
Cons: "Some flights attendent need to be more friendly and smile a little more"
Pros: "I have seen some bad reviews abt airaisa and for sure i was afraid when i booked with them but i think each experience is different. I use airaisa to go to 2 city and 3 country and i have zero negatie comment . It was a nice experience with them . Always on time . Clean plane ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Pretty much everything. Won’t be flying AirAsia again."
Cons: "The connecting flight in between was not very clear during search. It was only Manila to Cebu but there was a connecting flight to Taiwan. I would have forfeited my flight if I had not brought my passport along. So the route was MANILA to TAIWAN to Cebu WHY DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SUCH A STUPID ROUTE??? AND UNLIKE OTHER TRAVEL SITES, YOURS DO NOT EMPHASIZE CONNECTING FLIGHTS VERY CLEARLY!!! Also, there was no way to cancel it. I was really disappointed in your site!"
Cons: "Very long time to wait"
Pros: "I guess sometimes it's cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "There are always delays"
Pros: "Flight time Cost"

Pros: "Crew went out of the way to assist us after a terrible checkin experiance"
Cons: "Received a notification that flight was delayed and given an option to reschedule after we checked in only. Checkin countervseperated my family and I even though we checked in early. Sent to Lounge and forced to pay even though directed by them."
Pros: "the crew was friendly"
Cons: "the flight was delayed"

Pros: "No hassle checking in"
Cons: "The seat was a little unc"
Pros: "Making it from one point to the other was the only thing that went well."

Pros: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My seat was broken and would go back if I leaned on it too hard. We were delayed for so long and sat on the runway (perhaps the airports fault). There was no overhead room for our carry-on luggage and no one was very helpful about it. Other passengers around us had the same issue with the carry-on luggage."
Cons: "flight from puerto princesa to manila was delayed by four hours and we missed connection to Europe. We had to stay other terrible day in Manila and had to buy a new expensive ticket :-("
Cons: "Horribly late. Glad I didn't book a connection the same day."
Cons: "This airline is a complete joke They have NO IDEA what customer service is Three of us had to rebook an earlier flight, same day as original ticket... NO REIMBURSEMENT, had to pay for three more tickets They broke a fragile purchase and said, too bad. Again, zero compensation. Fly with CEBU AIR!!!!!"
Pros: "I'd like my money I spent on a hotel back"

Cons: "Does not leave on time."
Pros: "The price the price the price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Not really anything good to say"
Cons: "Terminal 4 is old and hard to get to if you are transferring from an international flight"
Pros: "Nothing since we all got sick and tried to cancel the trip. The HELP and LIVE CHAT feature they have is worth nothing! After they kept me on for 14 minutes the first time, kept saying I was first on the waiting list and will be less than ONE minute. This took at least 12 minutes before I repeated that, and did this 3 times. Also, trying to see how much luggage allowed, ticket indicated 32kg each but avoided to say clearly allowed to check in or what? Tried to find out more, but not possible through their website. If are allowed or not allowed must tell us clearly so know how to plan, from the start, rather than surprise me at the airport with a big over weight!"

Cons: "flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "We flew 1hr and 45 mins delayed."
Pros: "Nothing good!"
Cons: "Every flight I took through them was delayed several hours, very rude flight atttendants. I wish I could get my money back. The plane was super dirty, and in disrepair, I feared for my life the whole flight."
Pros: "We eventually made it to manila. That was the only positive of the flight."
Cons: "I received 3 emails alerting me to the fact the flight was delayed. The first blamed operations and estimated a 45 minute delay, the next 2 had the same explanation but with a 1.5 hour delay. The final count was almost 5 hours. The terminal was sterile looking with awful lighting, and uncomfortable benches. There was no wifi (free or for a charge), and updates from the ground crew were few and far between and generally only happend after a question from a customer . They provided a meal due to the delay(there is no food in the terminal except a small kiosk that closed earlier that evening), but a greasy chicken leg and ball of white rice don't do much to make up for losing 4 hours of sleep before a 20 hour trek to America the next day (rather the same day as we got in at 330 am). We will never fly through manila or kalibo again as a result of this trip, and never again fly airasia."
Pros: "Nice, efficient crew, comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 5 hours from the original time, a lot of confusion in the boarding room, and only gave out a box of fried chicken for the meal, and I m a vegetarian. would have even eaten a bag of peanuts...."
Pros: "Air Asia said, my ticket was refunded back to my account, I called my card company and talked to the air Asia crew teller at the airport's counter at the same time. My card said, my purchased went through successfully but air Asia at Manila airport didn't understand that! My parents went home straight front the airport frustrated!! So I had to purchased another plane tickets with anothe airline, and now they're enjoying Macau and Hong Kong!! I will not give you my business ever again and my whole family. :( P.s I even got a flight reminder email on 1/22/16 and their flight with you was supposedly yesterday 1/28/16. -not a happy customer-"
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
Pros: "Very organized on board and staff is very professional."
Cons: "It would have been nice if drinks were complimentary."
Pros: "Boarding from the front, or the back. Short flight time."
Cons: "4+ hour delays with no explanation, NO FOOD THAT YOU DON'T PURCHASE, and the always present exorbitant baggage fees. You get NO checked bag for your standard fare. You must pay to check ANY bag, and that payment doesn't cover much weight. Anything overweight is WAY too expensive. They also want to weigh your carry-on, to make sure you're not using a carry-on bag to beat their crappy baggage fees."
Cons: "They charge me 70 dollars more for my bag... They said that's its only aloud 7 kilo hand bag"
