I asked her to give me the same window seat and not back row. She seems to ignore my request. Although I got the free seat on Exit Row, I feel bad how she ignores me. Overall, Philippine Airlines is still far better than Cebu Pacific."

Pros: "comfortable plane, nice crew, on time"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful. Food was enjoyable."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Got worse as hours went by. Business class in front of my seat sat empty the entire trip. I understand everybody cannot be upgraded but I paid extra for aisle seat and extra leg room. Maybe passengers that paid extra for seats could get an upgrade when available? It would have been a nice treat to be able to sit in a seat that was actually comfortable. I guess the padding gets worn down from all the passenger travel an that's understandable but for passengers with 13-15 hr trips, sleeping isn't an option really and the seats are just not soft enough. Perhaps a nominal $100 upgrade fee when seats are empty in business class? I'm assuming the reason business was empty is it's just too expensive? Maybe a price adjustment is in order rather than letting those seats sit empty? Overall, the flight was a pleasant experience. The seat situation was just a blemish on the trip. I will continue to use Philippine Airlines though probably in the future. Thank you."

In any event even though I was willing to pay was denied & entire process from checkin to boarding was terrible. THEN when bags were put on conveyor they were placed with no concern & I literally saw one TEAR OPEN on the belt! Mine ended up at the wrong carousel. Lovely."
Pros: "Fluid check in and on time departure. Pleasant staff"
Pros: "The crew was great."

Pros: "I wish I had something to like about it."
Cons: "checkin was a nightmare. over an hour and a half to get bags checked and boarding passes. It seemed like every time there was an issue all the staff would stop what they were doing to see what the issue was. nearly missed my scheduled boarding time. Good thing our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours. guess I can't complain too much for a budget airline. Just sucks that bag checkin and delays took longer than our actual flight."

Pros: "Seats and timeliness were good"
Cons: "Checking in process should be improved"

Cons: "Free snacks and drinks"
Cons: "I’ve been to over 15 airports in the last month and Since when does the airport have a terminal fee of $17 And they made us check in our bag for $60 per person, I’ve been on many budget airlines before and they never made us do this, never flying with AirAsia again."
Pros: "The comfort of the seat, its wider... Since I am broad shouldered I need a comfy seat."

Pros: "The comfort of the seat"
Cons: "If they clean the plane before we even boarded... I saw trash on my seat, literally, when I just boarded the plane. Also if the cabin crew were attentive.. 2 male cabin crews were not as attentive to their passengers, but I want to thank the flight supervisor who was very attentive to our needs."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled on the way there and on the way back without any notifications. On the way there, I had to run through the airport to catch an earlier flight. On the way back, I waited 4 hrs to catch a later flight. Air Asia did not compensate for my valuable extra time wasted but in addition charged a $30 USD bag fee each time. I will never fly with Air Asia again and will advise friends and family to avoid Air Asia."

Cons: "Having to pay luggage check in"
Pros: "Making it from one point to the other was the only thing that went well."

Cons: "The flight was delayed twice adding up to a five hour delay. The crew gave no reason , no apology, complete lack of communication was astounding. When i mentioned it to other travel agents they all said the same thing, Air Asia is always delayed, i was told to use other airlines. Indeed, while awaiting my flight to Manilla I saw 2 Philippines Air flights depart on time.
