Pros: "One of the flight attendants from my flight to Manila from Bangkok was very helpful in getting the ground crew to help me transfer from terminal 2 to terminal 3 by using the transfer bus. One of the taxi drivers wanted to take me for 800 pesos. But not only did I not have to deal with traffic on the street but be cause we were riding on the tarmac we saved a lot of time. Thanks to the helpful flight attendant."

Cons: "My outbound flight (Manila to Taipei) was rescheduled so I had to make alternative plans. On the day itself, we were told that the flight was cancelled with very little warning. I wasted a total of 8 hours waiting to be put on another flight. They transferred us to the cheaper Cebu Pacific flight that left 5 hours later (at 10 pm!) than the PAL flight. Most horrible flying experience I've ever had in my entire life and I've been flying internationally for almost 20 years. Their customer service is terrible, not transparent and not helpful. They took longer than necessary to rebook people to other flights. Completely horrible. I have another flight booked with PAL that I can no longer cancel, but after that one, never flying them again!"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal - way better than delta"
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Cons: "Everything, so I bought a ticket back with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "The pilot tried to stick to the schedule."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline properly. A lot of turbulence (over 90% of flight time) due to the monsoon season, I guess. The aircraft was somewhat small, Airbus A320-200."
Pros: "Few passengers during the flight."
Cons: "They served meal an hour after the take off. Then another meal an hour before landing. I was starving. Some stewardess are not friendly. One stewardess spilled water on me and she didn't even say sorry."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Service was bad, delayed flight, etc."
Cons: "The staff were unprofessional. They seldom smile and it's as if they are still in apprenticeship. Also, I hate it when they don't serve meals when the seatbelt sign is on. I understand in the case of hot beverages"
Pros: "I really liked how the crew was very understanding and went above and beyond to fulfill the customers' requests."
Cons: "That you actually had to ask for certain plane amenities such as blankets, hot drinks, etc. I suppose it's just because I'm used to being asked first instead of expecting to request these things."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and inefficient as there was no phased boarding by rows. Food was found very wanting. No entertainment."
Pros: "Philippine Air didn't disappoint, which it has at times because it seems to always be delayed. However, not this time, and the service Philippine Air provides is very good."
Cons: "I never heard the airport announce boarding for this flight, but simply saw people slowly begin to head through the gate, so I did likewise. For that matter, Busan's Gimhae airport is third-class at best, IMO. I flew out of Busan once before and the experience was terrible again. Would always recommend travelers take the KTX to Incheon where you'll have more options, probably lower fares and less aggravation."
Cons: "I don't like the the schedule of the flights to Butuan."
Pros: "Philippines Airlines is quite comfortable in economy class and the staff are friendly."
Cons: "Too many times people I talk to have a problem with connecting flights because of PAL's lateness. Again, my flight was delayed. I will say that they held my PAL connecting flight to Cebu which was great for me but would suck for all the passengers waiting for my flight!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding took too long, overhead compartment to small"
Pros: "the service, the crews profesionality"

Cons: "6 hour delay for take off."
Pros: "I'm quite tall and the flight attendants quickly moved me (without even me having to ask!) to an exit row with more leg room. And I must admit that these were some of the friendliest flight attendants I've ever had...always smiling and polite."
Cons: "I don't know because j never made the flight. I got a completely different time of the flight than what the time really was which caused me to missed the flight. On top of that I was treated rudely whenever I called to get another flight and I was unable to be helped. Additionally I never got a a refund. I am in the military and was out of 1400 moving costs on a flight that wasn't worth it. Never using again"
Cons: "Delay. With no info being related"
Pros: "Crews are nice"
Cons: "Flight was more than 1 hour delayed , luggage took 1 hour to arrive."
Pros: "About what I would expect from a local airline. Typical chaotic free frail boarding processes (all though the did have some people board from the back of the plane by seat row number). Standard space allotment for seats and they offered a complimentary snack."
Cons: "I was annoyed with the excess baggage fee as it was not clearly written on the purchase ticket agreement. I checked before on their website on the baggage allotment. I was under the impression that the allowance was 20kg, but the women indicated it was only 10kg!"

Pros: "The A330 is used from MNL to SIN is horrible... Lay out is 3x3x3 (yes the same as a budget carrier), no IFE (same as a budget carrier)..Seat pitch and width same as a budget Carrier. The difference: you have a hot meal"
Pros: "They said they couldn't gaurntee my luggage would arrive because I was 1 minute late for checking in. They charged me 980hkd more to change my flight and my girlfriend 1400hk. It was the worst ever and would like to talk to customer service"
Cons: "That I was not told before booking my flight I would need to show my Ticket leaving the Philippines before checking in to leave Bangkok.."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were very good."

Cons: "Boarding is a fiasco with cebu pacific they should try zones and separate lines like japan!"

Pros: "Staff was helpful pre boarding"
Cons: "There was absolutely no ventilation while on ground. It was so hot on the plane too!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice new equipment A321 and FA always nice"
Cons: "Baording is always a cattle call, they attempt to go by rows this time but still a mess of crowding and shoving. The gate announced boarding and everyone jumped, then they tried to refuse those in line making it even worse. Poor gate agents!!! Then as always they blame manila teaffic for delays....so irritating. Almost an hour late...no reason it was sunny at both airports and this schedule is set weeks ahead and they still claim heavy traffic..ridiculous"
Pros: "I was sleepless getting on the flight, so I slept most of the way. I didn’t buy the in-flight food since I wasn’t hungry."
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."
Pros: "Was kindly moved to exit row after inquiring at checkin..very nice agent. Very comfortable and great legroom...unlike the hideous crammed in rows behind. Boarded early wjich is unusual for this airline to ever be on time...then sure enough 30 min delay due t9 manila traffic?? This country needs a new major airport or updated traffic control and another runway! This pilot had the smoothest landing...the last few flights have been awful landings, hard and scary"
Cons: "Unsmiling flight attendants...what has happened? The ladt two flights ver sober looks, never smile?"
Cons: "I didn't like everything"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants on the plane were very good very sweet very attentive. I also enjoyed the fact that we got a free meal without a ticket."
Cons: "The service at the airports for your company was abysmal to say the least. The fact that I had to pay over $100 for my bag to be checked was absolutely ridiculous. The personnel for Cebu Pacific at the Denspar airport were borderline hostile, racially discriminating and nasty. If you’re airport employees were half as good as the in-flight attendance I would fly with your company again as of right now you couldn’t pay me to get on your airplane."
Pros: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"

Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were delayed by 2+ hours"
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."
Cons: "Its a shame—Singapore is a first-class city and its people are beautiful; except for one zealous person who made it her goal to ruin Singapore. Cebu Pacific (MNL) required our umbrella to be checked-in without incurring additional expense since it does not make sense to charge us because the umbrella price is way less than the shipping cost. However, Cebu Pacific (SGN) Counter Supervisor was rigid and unprofessional; she wouldn’t listen to reasons and logic. She said that this is SGN and not MNL and therefore, its totally different. She was correct because we were able to go home and security did not say anything about our umbrella. Basically, we do not have to check-in our umbrella in the first place. But the Supervisor was adamant and combative regarding our umbrella. We told her we’ll just throw it in the trash can instead of shipping it."
Cons: "Check-in, baggage allowance - virtually none, snacks drinks none, will never use again"
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: "They put me in front row...nice crew"
Cons: "Interesting condensation coming from plane due to intense humidity - looked like smoke in entire plane!"
Pros: "Landing was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours!"
Cons: "Indeferent staff"
Pros: "I'm so sick of this HORRIBLE Airline,. I could not check in online and even called them, they said oh SORRY SIR ,( TYPICAL ) AND WANTED ME TO PAY $595 for my bags on a $290 one way ticket,. Never AGAIN WILL I FLY THESE IDIOTS AIRLINE"
Cons: "I like my choice to fly another airline and that I'm able to deny payment for the flight thru my Credit Card,. ASIANA airlines for $300 and bags included"
Cons: "Flight delayed over two hours."
Pros: "Accommodating gate agent. Flight was on time"
Cons: "During flight, it's quite shaky."
Cons: "One of the tightest legroom. Said they were giving out sim cards but never got one even after asking for one. It was ok that we didn't get one but not ok that 2 crew members said they will get us one and never did. If you don't have it, just honestly say you don't have enough. Or just don't offer it in the first place!! No drinks... not even a glass of water without having you pay for it."
Pros: "Really cool"
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "a bit of a delay"
Cons: "In addition to lack of communication of any updates from the staff"
Pros: "very cheap fare"

Pros: "The staff tried to board the flight efficiently."
Cons: "Why do Cebu Pacific flights always have to be late? Always always always."
