Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "Crew are helpful"

Cons: "Poor/No IFE system, no wifi onboard and poor snack quality"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival by over 45mins ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food and lack of IFE and WiFi"

Cons: "Communication on flight delays/ cancellations. Left our hotel room early to go to sleep in the airport for 8 hours because there was no information emailed out to inform us of a 6.5 hour delay"
Pros: "Straight flight."
Cons: "No shuttle bus available from New Jersey to JFK. The food was not that good, meat was tough to chew. Meatballs were dry. The crew members were good ‘tho."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by 2 hours, so I didn’t make it to my connecting flight. The airline put me on the next available flight, but that one got delayed too. As a matter of fact, I’m still sitting on my connecting flight waiting to take off and I boarded an hour ago."
Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "The lost my luggage from Manila to Bangkok. I had to travel on to Phuket without my luggage for 4 days. It was mind over matter to get to speak to anyone. I called 3 to 4 times a day to get my luggage. What a nightmare. I had to by extra clothes to survive. Nothing like flying 15.5 hrs, 5 hrs."
Pros: "Leg room was small."
Pros: "Crew male"
Cons: "Should be ontime"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Most everything was very good expierence. Entertainment selection is excellent. Crew was friendly and full of energy. Plane was pristinely clean."
Cons: "I see a comment about letting people board when it wasn't their turn. This did happen a little and it is shameful more of the people that think they can get away with it. Eventually, the ground crew did start yelling and organizing people, which helped correct the situation. I do think that all people should be kicked back to the end of the line for not following the procedure. Food was only okay (Fish in shrimp sauce)."
Pros: "The safety belt works"
Cons: "3hours late for a one hour flight. Hour and half boarding then after sitting on the plane foe a hour they announced the plane w Needs repair and were waiting on a mechanic to finish the repairs. Why would they put us on a broken plane? I guess our flight was a test for the repairs. We could of sat in the terminal for the time instead of the plane."
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Pros: "Clean comfortable plane. Decent leg room. Attentive staff"
Cons: "Manila airport needs upgrades"
Cons: "delayed take-off and took 20 extra minutes before disembarking"
Pros: "Access to myPAL Player"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Crew service was satisfactory it"
Cons: "It’s been three days and they haven’t located my 1 of my 4 luggage’s . Nobody deserves this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The airline is great! The airport is horrible, not enough toliets, no place to sit down to eat. Standup tables is all! Too small for for passing travelers, not enough place to sit!"
Pros: "Movies"
Pros: "The service given from the flight attendants. They are very nice and make you feel comfortable. The flight was fast and we arrived 22mins ahead of our schedule time which was good."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "It was relatively on time (although eventually delayed in the tarmac) and the boarding was orderly. PAL usually has courteous and polite staff."
Cons: "Seats are cramped- you cannot put out a laptop and expect to be able to type normally. Your elbow will hit the passenger next to you."
Cons: "I was expecting that they will compensate for the time loss but unfortunately they did not. I asked for an earlier flight and a good seat, but they just kept me waiting."

Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "We booked this flight months ago and made plans to meet people. We wanted to arrive early to avoid traffic but since the flight as 3 hours delayed we arrived at 5 and did not get to the hotel that was 20 miles away in 2 hours. When I am late for my flight you cancel my ticket and make me purchase a more expensive one. More than the round trip I purchased so why don't you compensate me when your delayed"
Cons: "Your tardiness and inconsiderate way of doing business. Your irresponsible attitude towards your paying customers."
Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "I need more legroom."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "My son didn't receive any goodies at all on our way to Cebu but coming back to LA, he received Madagascar coloring book with crayons, headset, and a stuff toy. Over all it was excellent."
Pros: "It was very organized and on time"
Cons: "poor food no entertainment terminal 2"
Cons: "Flight delayed for about 2 hours"
Cons: "The logistics at Manila airport are horrible. I spent more time working around the terminal changes and flight delays than I actually did in the air. I will avoid Manila and PAL in the future"
Pros: "Very nice and friendly"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "There was only entertainment on your phone or iPad"
Cons: "They only allow 7 kilos of carry ons. My bag is a carry on with every other airline in the world except Philippine Airlines. 7 kilos is crazy."
Cons: "Of the four total flights, to include connections, Philippine Airlines was delayed on all legs. The delays were all after boarding and while sitting in plane. Delays ranged from 30 minutes to 75 minutes and all four flight delays were reported to be due to delays in getting baggage on the planes or getting the meals loaded on the planes according to the pilot's reports. Of note, on all four flights, the crew ran out of food before getting to our isle and had only one option remaining with no alternatives for those allergic to any portion of the meal. I would absolutely never recommend Philippine Airlines to anyone. The reduced cost of tickets was absolutely not worth the experience."
Cons: "It seems like Philippine airlines is determined to be the lowest quality airline still flying. Too bad."
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "terminal at NAIA"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. During the flight, you need to have your tablet or phone with installed PAL apps to able to access and play their online entertainments."
Pros: "Not much to speak of"
Cons: "They didn't mention the $20 airline use fee when I booked the flight"

I am 74 hrs old and I appreciate walking on the ramp instead of using the stairs. Too bad they didn’t have that on the return.

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and quick."
Pros: "The seat has a bit more space than regular economy in competitor airline"
Cons: "The cabin crews on this flight need some passenger service training!"
Pros: "The airline assigned the latest airplane to my flight. Its USB charging port was good."
Cons: "I do not know why the cabin crew provided a meal on 3 pm than much later around 5 pm. The flight arrived to the destination on 7 pm. I thought I ordered a dinner."
Pros: "Nothing.the cebu pacific employee told me that my flight was changed from 12pm to 6pm when I checked in but I did not have any notification. He said that he can get me in, in an earliest flight they have and only to find out that the flight they he wanted me in is my flight and ask money."
Cons: "Screen employees and make sure they don’t deceive people."
Pros: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Cons: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Cons: "The flight I was booked on late so they changed my reservation to the previous flight which was late as well, still.later than my original flight . But smart move by them. The only issue was the terrible terminal building at Dumagete.."

Pros: "Since I checked In early, they let me in on an earlier flight. Thanks!"
Pros: "Did not like the flight at all."
Cons: "5 1/2 hour flight- not even water was offered. Better explanation of baggage allowances. I got a shock of paying an extra $962 U SD .

Pros: "Nothing much. The flight crew were ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Boarding and departure lounge area was utter chaos because the Cebu Pacific staff were not clear about which flight waa boarding. The plane was horribly cramped. Extra seat rows had been installed to get more seating on the plane. That might be ok for the average 5'4" Filipino, but at 6'1", I literally could not fit my knees behind the seat in front of me. As a result I had to twist my legs into an uncomfortable position for 2 hours. Not fun."

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: "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."
Pros: "So delayed!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"

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: "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.""

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Super delayed."
Pros: "we had a very tight connection from landing in Manila to catching our flight to El Nido.

I was very impressed and will be telling everyone I know how great Cebu is."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

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.
