It took over an hour to disembark and almost made me miss my connecting flight. Maybe they could have let the other airlines know passengers with connecting flights were running late. The flight was long and the seat space was very tight. The food was excellent. Crew was friendly and helpful.
iwas thirsty the whole night, no one approach me to ask if I needed a drink!
Cons: "couldnt change it"
Pros: "Movie selection was ok"
Cons: "Ran out of meals offered me crackers and bread boarding was a mess long delays I will never fly Philippines airline again!"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane, air is very dry, seats are very uncomfortable. The seats are hard. No cushion. No foot rest."
Pros: "The leg rest in premium economy should have been longer & seat should have been wider"
Cons: "See above note"
Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "None at all."
Cons: "If they give you the seat assignment you pay for."
Pros: "The flights were fine. The service good. The airplanes clean."
Cons: "The food was not as good as other Asian airlines. Transferring planes in Manila is a nightmare. They performed an extensive passport check and 2 additional security checks for everyone. Took almost 2 hours. Had to be chaperoned to the next terminal. Manila airport is a disorganized mess. Not the airlines fault but be aware when transferring through Manila"
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Pros: "Food and cleanliness!"
Cons: "I don’t recommend to fly with philippine airlines It will really mess up your schedule. They keep changing and changing their flight schedule Very disappointed."
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment but did have free wifi"
Pros: "Great Flight Crew very Pleasant"
Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Crew, service, comfort, food extra superb,"
Cons: "Add games on your entertainment, as you have movies for all ages, and have music as well like country song or old favourites would be much appreciated.."
Cons: "We were left behind because of the long line and slow service. On top of that, they open all our eight luggages that made four of us missed our flight and the rebooking fee is too expensive. We'll never fly with PAL again. It cost us a fortune because of their poor customer service."
Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."
Cons: "Better way to deal with lost luggage, and they need to automatically deliver it to our address instead of tell us that we need to go back to the airport to pick it up ourselves. It’s been a huge hassle."
Pros: "Crew and check in were very accommodating to our family with two small children."
Cons: "Food served did not have any vegetarian choices."
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."
Cons: "No movies in thePR301"
Pros: "Add veggie food as an option for vegetarians people"
Cons: "To cold and no veggie food"
Pros: "Im tall so as usual the leg room was difficult but that is every flight im on"
Pros: "The great service and hospitality of the flight crew. Was upgraded to business class, thanks PAL."
Cons: "In flight entertainment is through an iPad device which is not fully charged."
Pros: "Service from the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I’m over 6 feet tall and the seating was cramped for someone my size. Full service international flights should have in flight entertainment systems."
Pros: "The crew are professionals"
Cons: "The plane. Its an old airbus a340. Was expecting the new boeing 777-300er new business class."
Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"
Pros: "On Time. Courteous crew, great service"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, good food, decent wines, inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Service was even better on the second leg of the trip and the leg room and seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Cons: "People trip me indiscriminate"
Pros: "Crews were attentive and very helpful. They were all nice and very accommodating. But please add a personal AVOD on your aircrafts. A 10 hour flight is really boring without entertainment system."
Cons: "The portion of the food was very little. And they only serve full meal once on a 10-hour flight. Snack was served 1 hour prior to arrival but was not enough as the passengers were starving already."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Very rude employees"
Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."
Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."
Cons: "Food was just okay. Nothing to rave about. Could be improved."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "only water available, carrot cake snack given, no headphones issued. delay of 30 min"
Pros: "Like the MYPAL but should have USB to help charge phone / tablet while watching on ALL planes."
Cons: "For having you own airport should have better shops and stalls for people waiting and lingering. There are no healthy options, fresh food, good coffee/tea. Please improve services offered at your head quartered terminal. Even the souvenirs available is very limited and over priced."
Pros: "The boarding was on time and it was a smooth landing."
Pros: "I got to the airport at 4:45 am (who urs and 15 min before scheduled departure). The airport employees couldn't find my flight. They said the 1st ANA flight is not till 9:30 am. Then after 30-40 min of confusion, searching, etc, they sent me to another terminal which was 40 min away! Where they couldn't find my flight either at first. Then they finally came back and said that per their schedule, the first flight out is on ANA is at 6:45, not 7. And the reason why they couldn't find it is because it was only code share ANA but operated by Philippines airlines. As a result I missed my flight, missed my work and had to deal with co sequences. Unacceptable"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "terminal at NAIA"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous at times."
Cons: "The poor service at the Sydney airport. Not having my special meal and not being flexible enough onboard to compensate or resolve the situation. (I mean, why not have extra vegetarian options available; and beef being the only option is unacceptable for so many reasons, including that there are some religions that don't allow beef.) Lack of wifi and entertainment for an 8 hour flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "Good service. Comfortable."
Cons: "Every flight from Manila to Honolulu was delayed at least 1 hour."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Pros: "Quiet, food was good Good seating organization for separating family with babies and single person. I enjoyed my flight very much."
Pros: "it was nice flying with philippine airlines , just the laid over was very long , 8 hrs.."
Flight was 2 hours delayed. No explanation provided. Gates changes twice.
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: "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: "All the crew were super pleasant and friendly despite attending to very rude European passengers."
Cons: "Keep up the excellent work!"
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."
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: "Everything else"
Pros: "Price and convenient"
Cons: "Service and flight comfort"
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 . We were coming from international flight and did not have to pay for baggage’s . Had I been informed of baggage cost I would have selected a different carrier."
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"
Cons: "So late, I missed a 3 hour connection."
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."
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: "cheap flight"
Cons: "delayed flight by almost 1 hour. no discipline officer to impose noisy and disturbing co-passengers"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly and curtious"
Cons: "Checking in seemed long, snacks or meals weren't available unless prearranged at an additional cost....scheduled connecting flight to catarman, very long wait in amundane terminal lacking enough seating....suggesting that both airlines,PAL & Cebu Pacific coordinate flights better to cut down layover time in the inadequate Clark terminal."
Pros: "Staff was helpful pre boarding"
Cons: "There was absolutely no ventilation while on ground. It was so hot on the plane too!!!!!"
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: "When we got to Manila, it was raining so bad. We had to get off the plane onto a bus. They handed us an umbrella to keep dry from the deluge. It was much needed, under the circumstances."
Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Lavatory was spacious. Airplane was clean."
Cons: "I know that the ground crew can’t control passengers from lining up even if it’s not their turn yet but there should be enough space for families with small kids and senior citizens to go up to the front to board ahead."
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 timing of the Cebu Pacific flight from Bali to Manila was fantastic. Short immigrations lines in Bali and upon arrival in Manila. Seats were better than expected, although we paid extra for the 2nd row. Crew was professional."
Cons: "We pre-ordered food and it was soggy and over cooked. Not worth it. Flight left late. Flight attendants were not helpful,"
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: "What flight???? We cancelled it. My fiance booked me a ticket online using his card, Cebu Facific confirmed it but subjected of payment. for what if u already closed that payment ?? we understand that "FRAUD" thing but the thing is u SHOULDN'T CONFIRMED it and get back to us first. Now were having hard time getting money back for the booking that was cancelled."
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: "Crew seemed unfriendly, many small delays . There, passengers were no allowed in galley area to use toilet, had to walk through aisle #1"
Pros: "Flight was ahead of time. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Very efficient!i was very happy with whole flight!"
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."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Its a shame—Singapore is a first-class city and its people are beautiful; except for one zealous person who made it her goal to ruin Singapore. Cebu Pacific (MNL) required our umbrella to be checked-in without incurring additional expense since it does not make sense to charge us because the umbrella price is way less than the shipping cost. However, Cebu Pacific (SGN) Counter Supervisor was rigid and unprofessional; she wouldn’t listen to reasons and logic. She said that this is SGN and not MNL and therefore, its totally different. She was correct because we were able to go home and security did not say anything about our umbrella. Basically, we do not have to check-in our umbrella in the first place. But the Supervisor was adamant and combative regarding our umbrella. We told her we’ll just throw it in the trash can instead of shipping it."
Pros: "we had a very tight connection from landing in Manila to catching our flight to El Nido. Cebu's team lead us through the check in process to expedite and save time and even ordered a special shuttle bus for us to take between terminals at the airport. I was very impressed and will be telling everyone I know how great Cebu is."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "Clean aircraft and friendly staff. I wasn't expecting entertainment and didn't order a meal hence the 1 star. No complaints about the flight and I've flown several times with them and always been satisfied."
Pros: "Late arrival of plane meant knock on problems with air traffic in manila... over an hour late ... cebu airlines ok but system poor"
Cons: "Unfortunately delays caused by late arrival of plane - 1 hr late"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Don't expect to get more into your hand carry than 7kgs. They weigh it at check in. Hand carry allowance should be more than just 7kgs."
Cons: "It’s 4hrs flight and they didn’t even offer not a free water you have to pay for food ? This is international flight for crying out loud. It’s not worth for what you pay for worst airline ever."
Pros: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight twice. But still late."
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"
Cons: "I like my choice to fly another airline and that I'm able to deny payment for the flight thru my Credit Card,. ASIANA airlines for $300 and bags included"
Pros: "Accommodating gate agent. Flight was on time"
Cons: "During flight, it's quite shaky."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"
