Pros: "Cebu pacific is one of airlines who prescribe to a pay as you go additude. Be prepared to pay for everything after you pay for your ticket 7kg carry on max limits pay for the food you may or may not eat, and if you get cold easily bring warm clothes. No joke this was the coldest airplane I have ever been on in my 15 years of travel, so cold in fact that upon taking off you can hear the ice crystals breaking loose and traveling through the air system. I am going to say that the plane was in good condition and the flight attendants and pilot crew seem to be well trained as well as very polite."

Pros: "No fuss,simple budget air travel"
Cons: "Nothing,does the job for a 1 hr flight"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled because of weather condition while we were at the boarding gate, they didn't care about compensations or consider not risking putting the passengers under last minute pressure, at least they should've notified us ahead of time, they automatically rolled us in the next flight, however, they didn't confirm if the next flight will be cancelled or not. In order to make sure I can catch my connecting flights, I booked another flight from Legazpi to Manila on a different airline, in addition, I had to pay the hotel booking cancellation fees in Manila, since these fees can only be waved if I cancelled 24hrs in advance. Moreover when I asked for my ticket refund, they made a big deal out of it and after a ruff struggle they agreed to refund me, but whatever the refund amount was, it barely covers anything of what I had to pay for a new ticket+ 1 extra night stay in Legazpi + hotel cancellation fees in Manila, I ended up paying 400USD in total while I only got around 50USD ticket refund from them, and of course, add to that the stress and hassle I went through in doing this!"

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.

Cons: "You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Great looking crew."
Cons: "Flight out of and into Manilla was changed and delayed."
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!"
