Not too clear about the Covid-19 requirements. I ended up rebooking my flight. Vancouver Canada -connecting flight , staff aren’t helpful. Customer service sucks. Won’t fly Philippine Airlines again.

Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Flight was dalyed 1h. We were heading to siargao but went back to cebu!!!! Lost 2 h for no reason!! Thats unacceptable! Now we have paid a room in siargao for nothing. Cant skip siargao cause our next flight is from there!!!! I hate you"
Pros: "No direct contact details to change flight"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun."
Pros: "Flight took off early landed early"
Cons: "The seats obviously and the nead trolley dolly was quite rude she spoke about me to another passenger like i wasnt tgere"
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hours late, then bag pickup and extra security for transfer to LAX flight is confusing and multiple lineups."

Cons: "No Entertainment module, have to pay for Wifi"
Pros: "I like the level of professionalism compared to Cebu Pacific."
Cons: "Except for one woman crew on my CGY-CEB flight, I don't like her. I tried my best to get that seat even with the very slow internet connection, and here comes that row was under repair. 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: "Overall flight and crew service were excellent"
Cons: "I wasn't able to enjoy the entertainment due to poor wifi connection"
Pros: "Drink and snack service on a short flight. Great flight crew and comfortable plane."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed"
Pros: "Short flight time for the price"
Cons: "Even though it was shorter flight, the movie selection was even shorter. Had a broken arm so boarded last, counter announced for elderly, and disabled and stuff but did not waited for any takers. They probably didn't see me"
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."
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing made me felt safe to fly."
Cons: "Flight attendant pay more attention and nicer to foreigners than filipino passengers."
Cons: "Middle seat for 15 hours was tough. Otherwise flight was fine."
Pros: "it was nice flying with philippine airlines , just the laid over was very long , 8 hrs.."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay. Plus waiting another 45 min sitting in the plane until take-off. When we arrived at our destination, we again waited another 30 min or so in the plane until we were allowed to get out of the plane."
Pros: "Fun crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "I will never fly with them again they tried to charge me 114 us dollars for 1 bag. I only paid 43 dollars for my ticket.."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but the beer wasn't cold. Then the plane became painfully cold during the flight."
Pros: "The quiz and prizes given by the service crew onboard"
Pros: "Serge and the cabin crew were grey. The pilot made up 20 minutes on a 1 hour flight, came in late from previous flight."
Cons: "Scheduling. CP is ALWAYS late, and messes up connections. Hard to coordinate remedies with my phone turned off. It hadn't been once, 10, or 20 times, but EVERY time."
Cons: "Crew made robotic announcements, no spirit! No effort made to offer beverage, snacks, etc...they were the least interested group ive had on cebu pacific in a long time uuuuggh why bother?"
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: "The crew"
Cons: "I bought a front row seat only to be told that I would be the last to board"
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"
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: "Great customer service! Checking in was very fast!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, landed ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too cold!!"
Pros: "The plane is modern and clean and crew is friendly. I thought the flight crew announcements were clean and helpful"
Cons: "Cebu always changes gates..what a fiasco. Its like a cattle herd everytime, they are so disorganized!! Then always late and they blame late arrival of aircraft and then blame the traffic at the airport..it gets so old!! Two hour delay today....really cebu must have the worst on time arrivals of any airline!!??? And what happen to boarding special needs first...the gate agents must be idiots they started taking everyone thru both lines...the wheel chair and elderly and children were rammed in with the shoving hoards because they processed both at the same time..it was a fiasco as usual. What happen to board by rows?? I realize late departure but this in no way helped speed ghe plane on its way...uuugggh"
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?"
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 flight was faster than the arrival time"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Ofcourse"
Cons: "I didn't like everything"
Pros: "Everyone is profession and the food is great. The value is spot on!"
Pros: "Flgiht staff always nice"
Cons: "The cebu gate staff were awful, uninterested, never made announcemnts and as usual it was a cattle call to board. Rows were not followed. The sandwich i had paid for was all dry bread..it was awful."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, waiting in an overcrowded space with no aircon (and it's a tropical country). They kept on saying to wait for next announcement (but no screens, just a broken voice). Announcement were vague and couldn't understand when the flight was supposed to depart."
Pros: "They are very accommodating ."
Cons: "They are not on time. They are always late like other plane."
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: "Thank you for the great services."
Pros: "While booking I tried to buy luggage allowance. Impossible. Hence at check-in Cebu Pacific unpleasant staff charged me US$55 on top of a $100 fare for my normal suitcase of clothes. The worst theft in my travel history of 110 countries world wide. Shameless greed and extortion once they have your trapped. It gets worse. Due family reasons I needed to fly home a couple days early, having every reason to believe my ticket was flexible. Nowhere did it say otherwise, nor did the booking site warn me. But rudely I was told too bad, zero flexibility. ZERO! They had empty seats on many suitable flights, just wanted to steal my return ticket, simple. Theft. Extortion. The worst imaginable. I went ahead and bought a 2nd return ticket with Philippines Airlines (far far superior airline). My Cebu Pacific seat was zero refund and was sold to someone else I guess. Too bad for Stupid Mr Customer (me) who mistakenly flies Cebu Pacific! NEVER EVER FLY CEBU PACIFIC! This 71-year-old 110-country travel veteran has warned you factually. An utterly disgusting company whose staff indifferently spits in the face of customers, the rudeness is delivered in a could-not-care-less tone followed by a hang up the phone after saying "No way, it's impossible speak to the travel agent for help. good-bye. Click.""

Pros: "Boarding went swiftly and without issues. On board catering however rely's more on pre-booking your meals else there are hardly any options left. Seat was ok and punctuality too."
Cons: "The check-in was a mess.. we were the first at the counter but among the last to board. The clerc disappeared with my passport and asked me to transfer luggage on the spot. 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."

Cons: "Last minute change in Boarding Gate"
Cons: "Ramp instead of stairs. Offer free drinks"
Cons: "More orderly boarding process by zone, on-time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Every time I’ve used AirAsia it’s been delayed. Instead of being apologetic they’re always smug about how I can take a different airline. So I did!! Never fly with this airline again. Poor service poor flight planning and poor attitude. Shame on you AirAsia."
Cons: "Delay Delay Delay"
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"
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: "Flight time Cost"
Cons: "They don’t fly from Clark to KL Seat pitch excruciating for most average height people Particularly on a four hour flight Everything is penny pinched Crew are verging on brusque Some very loud music on boarding with some American rap music, hardly appropriate on a south east Asia airline"
Cons: "This has worse delays than any airlines I've tried."
Cons: "No space for luggage due to lack of enforcement of one carry on policy. Seats are way too close and they lean back, knee was in the seat in front the whole flight. Plane is old and landing was hard."
Pros: "Cabin is well air conditioned."
Cons: "No notice of slight flight delayed. Comfort rooms are not clean and some have no running water."
Cons: "Philippines AirAsia delayed our flight bound for Manila twice. They could have advised us earlier because we doubled our time this day just to get on time for our 17:25 flight. And, none of them even gave us food. We are all hungry."
Pros: "Crew went out of the way to assist us after a terrible checkin experiance"

Pros: "We arrived safe & sound"
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."
Pros: "It was wonderful I bought another round ticket for my wife I be there next year and use you again"
Cons: "Having to pay luggage check in"
Cons: "Act to us like we are stupid and inssit the weight each bag. The check in crew gave us bad vibe. Like they got somtging with us."
Pros: "Making it from one point to the other was the only thing that went well."
Cons: "I was double charged for the ticket. Customer service has been researching this for little over two weeks. Flight was delayed for just over two hours with multiple gate changes. Customer service at the terminal was no better than the customer service on the hotline."
Cons: "Seating leg room service delays customer service"
Cons: "Instead of getting to manila in 20:00 ive got there on 1:00 am!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this year like it was always two to three hours late of ways and the seats were being cramped"

Cons: "4 delays. Total of 9 hours stuck in the airport waiting. Seats were old/dirty looking."
Pros: "Check in was fast, crew was helpful, provided meal in airport for long flight delay"
Cons: "The airlines was great overall. Friendly staff, clean planes. My complaint, albeit a minor one, was that they didn't offer any type of free snack or drink. Most American airlines offer this and it's expected from most foreign passengers. Secondly, our plane was delayed about 5 hours for "traffic congestion" at Manila Airport. It looks like they only have one plane that travels the Puerto Princessa to Manila route so keep that in mind if you need to be somewhere on time. Philippines Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air had multiple planes coming and going durongbthis delay. I saw not a single AirAsia plane durong this delay. They sent an update email about a week or so that the flight was being moved up 2 hours, but no text saying that the flight was delayed. We could've spent an extra half day in El Nido if we had known. But still, I would probably fly with then again."
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."
Cons: "Does not leave on time."
Pros: "The price the price the price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Getting to my Destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours they said due to congestion, however at least 4 other flights left before us going to Hong Kong that were not delayed. The staff at the counter lined everyone up to board only to hand out free water and cake send us back to our seats. The plane wasn't even there yet. Everyone was very confused and upset. After finally boarding the plane it was dirty. Tray table wad really sticky and there was a used cup in my seat I had to remove before sitting. Also my seat did not recline so I was very uncomfortable with small amount of leg room. The flight was supposed to land in Hong Kong at 7:15 by the time we got to hotel it was 1:30am. It's a shame I had to pay for the whole night at the Hotel."
Pros: "Tube boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "Walking ; not even a bus?"
Pros: "The price was low, but I believe there were other airlines in the same price range."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed for over an hour. They did not report all the delays to the flight status sites. I think it was in an effort to keep their on time percentages higher. Choose a different airline if you prefer to be on time."
Cons: "Late but that's expected"
Cons: "Your flights are either late or rescheduled."
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
Cons: "Rescheduling flights, then rescheduled flight is late departing. Poor staff. Very poor web design."
Pros: "Nothing, never got there."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, took 2 months to get a refund. Alternative flights were never arranged. Hopeless airline."
Pros: "Overall it was an ok flight. But there are so many limits to baggage what your weight limit is and isn't. I have to put things in 2 separate bags to prevent extra cost. Gees. It was out of control. I had on carry on and everything was under 10kg. But the one bag was limited to 7. Hence extra bag to carry other stuff. Didn't make sense to me. So I'll never fly on this airline again. Ill go back to Cebu Pacific Airlines. So much more better flights."
