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: "They gave extra fried chicken, in addition to the meals on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late and they made no accommodations for that fact. I had to rely on my wits the kindness of my connecting Airline and my ability to run across 5 terminals to make it. They did not even give me the correct time as to when their flight was scheduled to arrive. They were off by an hour"
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."

With the updated booking, we are arriving at 10pm. On the day of our flight they informed us that ot would be delayed and we’ll arrive at Incheon at 12mn."

Cons: "Agent misquoted me overweight baggage charge by half. The service agent that had to break the news to me was horrified. I paid as much for the bag as the original flight. Seats were very tight. ( I am 6'1") Next time I will fly a regular airline for the same price that I spent. Pay for bag. Pay for insurance pay for food and drink on an international flight. So wrong."
Pros: "No fuss,simple budget air travel"
Cons: "Nothing,does the job for a 1 hr flight"
Pros: "Can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Unforeseen luggage charges that were way too expensive. Would not have flown the airline had I realized they charged for luggage on international flights. The charge was about $150, for the same luggage I brought with me for free on two prior international flights that were part of the same trip, on much better airlines for about the same ticket price. I could have tolerated a charge of $50, but I found $150 to be outrageous. Seats were narrow, legs hit the back of the seat in front. No need for such a configuration, since the flight was only 1/3 full. I won't fly Cebu Pacific again. Congratulations, you lost my business."

On top she did not return the booking form. Luckily I had a second copy or my filipino friend would have been stopped by filipino immigration."
Pros: "The flight crew were great."
Cons: "Our international flight from Lonon to HK was 40kg per person and the HK to clark only allowed 20kg per person. I thought this may have been ok but caused many shopping plan changes and ruined our initial HK shopping."
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"

All they had to do was direct passengers to a check in desk. It was awful service"

Cons: "Seats had very little leg room. Chargers would have been nice. Would have liked to have headphone Jack's for music."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 31 minutes. So far, I’ve never departed on time with this airline. I will take responsibility for not prepaying for my check in luggage, but really, $154.00 for 3 suitcases on a 1 hour flight? It’s kinda sad."
Cons: "Free snacks and drinks"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and comfort was good."

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."
Cons: "The flight is delayed and they never notified us we stayed in the airport for almost 1:30 minutes delayed."

I will never fly with Air Asia again and will advise friends and family to avoid Air Asia."

Pros: "Staff at the checkin counter were very polite and very reassuring - although as I checked in they didn't mention that the flight would be delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation."
Pros: "The cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "BAD COMMUNICATION - The flight was delayed and they sent me an email however no details were ever updated on the screens in the terminal. Once at the airport they knew the flight was late but never updated the boarding time. I had to get up every 15 minutes to ask someone. At one point there wasn't even a jet but the screen said the flight was boarding. Boarding area is this small contained seating area in the airport with very limited food options (an issue when you sit there for hours). The plane was filthy and oddly enough you cannot bring your "own food" onboard you must buy everything onboard...even a bottle of water....which you will need have queuing on the tarmac to get on the plane. You have to pay in local currency---they won't accept a credit card. You have to board a bus, to be driven, to then walk, to then queue on a tarmac, to walk up a stairway to get on the plane. The weight restrictions on luggage are ridiculous. 7 kg allowed on cabin bags which are weighed otherwise you stand there an unpack because there is a different charge for in-person purchase of luggage versus online. Bring a shopping bag, unpack your carry-on, weigh it, get your tag (cabin baggage), walk away from the checkin country and put the items back into your carry-on. Lastly, they damaged my luggage. Note: if you use this airline, tell them you have breakable items in your suitcase and get a fragile sticker put onto all of your checked bags to keep them from being tossed like the Samsonite gorilla."
Cons: "4 delays. Total of 9 hours stuck in the airport waiting. Seats were old/dirty looking."
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. One of my fellow travellers had given themselves7 hours between flights and missed their flight to Dubai because of the delay."
