Pros: "Crew was extremely nice and helpful"
Cons: "Ancient 777 seating"

Pros: "Ahead of departure time"
Cons: "Snacks and should have inflight"

Cons: "The food (fish and rice) was tasteless."

Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"

Pros: "The crew, the meals, the on time departure and arrival . Philippine Airlines got my attention . I was in BC, and their lounge was awesome and so was the service on board. And the flight attendants as well! A five star airline, thank you !!!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Crew was very good. The food was better than most."
Cons: "The toilets should be checked for cleanliness more often, and supplies replenished."

Pros: "We were in business class, and everything was just awesome, considering there were only 4 passengers in the cabin. So it was quiet and private."
Cons: "It’s BYOE. Zero entertainment amenities. (They do offer you IPAD). No slippers or eye shades.... its a four flight to Guam."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible ride was bumpy and no entertainment was provided"

Pros: "Superb service!"

Cons: "4 hours late departure from jfk."

Pros: "The crew is all right helpful."
Cons: "The flight time keep on changing:("

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was attentive. The main flight attendant knew our names and greeted us as we entered and left the plane by name. The food was very good and wine pairing appropriate."
Cons: "They did security checks at the gate rather than upon entry to the concourse. It slowed everything down on boarding. Any double check caused a delay."

Pros: "Business class was good but sears small"
Cons: "Flight to BKK better seats"

Cons: "Terrible transfer facility in Manila. Poor security staff with bad attitudes. Poor and inadequate waiting areas"

Cons: "Long lines at check-in counter. We waited for almost 2 hours!"

Cons: "Biz class was so so"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."

Pros: "the airline I've heard is habitualy late. It was on this flight."
Cons: "Food was barely passable and coffee tasted like toasted wood."

Cons: "Pillows for business class as seat posture hurts the lower back. Needs improvement on loading priority luggages as mine came out together with the economy passengers."

Pros: "The crew was really good and professional."
Cons: "Pls add quantity to the food. There was not enough meat to the amount of rice or pasta served. I got hungry between meals. Water was also not offered often enough between meals."

Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times at take off, then upon landing we waited on tarmac for another hour waiting for gate to open"

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.."

Pros: "Lots of space and warm, soft, pillows and blankets."
Cons: "My entertainment remote didn’t work and they ran out of mango juice and the bangus."

Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was very tight. I can’t imagine how the tall people can fit."

Pros: "Crew was fine, FOOD HORRIBLE, NO BLANKETS NO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM, AND WE WERE 70 MIN LATE AGAIN"
Cons: "They are never ontime, over 100 flights in 2 yrs with them and 85 % of time they are delayed and very late, usually 45 min up to 90 min i've flown 245 flights in 3 yrs, the 2nd worst airline I have to deal with,"

Pros: "Great crew, good food"
Cons: "No entertainment either flight or snacks to purchase."

Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."

Pros: "I observed that the crew were doing there very best to help with the passengers and their concerns. I also saw that they were on top with regards to cleanliness especially the lavatories. I also like how they treat each and everyone with respect especially the older people that we are with."
Cons: "PAL - Plane Always Late! it seems that this meaning to the acronym sticks really good with our flag carrier. I was observing and trying to get some information on what is happening or reason for our delayed flight but to no avail. The captain's explanation makes no sense. With a 3 hour delay, I knew and felt that It would not be a great ride because right from the very start it already started wrong. I was already stressed out from the very beginning even though i saw in the cabin crew's effort and super great service towards especially to our older passengers their dedication and passion to serve. I was really looking forward to this flight but I guess this was one of those days that all you could do is close your eyes and stretch your patience. One other bad experience was getting on Terminal 1. Great improvement but it could be still better. Can't connect to Wifi (its asking me my number on the US when I did not sign up for roaming and for sure will not be able to get the code that they will send on my number) Last year was better, just log on and boom! Impressively lightning wifi speed connection. No questions or log ins and you can safely assure and text your relatives waiting patiently outside that you are there waiting. I just wished we went to Terminal 2 instead. But I guessed it will also be the same because everything started on a bad start with that 3hour delay. They were lucky most of the passengers were excited to be home and sleeping!"

Pros: "Wasnt bothered as compared to previous flights."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding and taking off and NO explanation from any airline personnel."

Pros: "I liked that the lady at the front desk turned us away and we weren’t able to board our flight due to not having a passport that extended out six months to expiration."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I booked my flights months in advance and would have done this adjustment with Our ample time and not one person informed us about our passports from kayak or Philippine Airlines. It was disgusting that I had to lose my flight and not even receive any kind of courtesy from them or you as far as even a partial refund or any kind of acknowledgement. We just booked other flights without your product. Terrible experience. i am just appalled at the kind of service kayak offers."

Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "Did not get the seat I requested. Food took a long time to be served and food was cold as well."

Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, good selection of movies (economy)"

Pros: "the people"
Cons: "flight was delayed But what else is new with PI. AIR. My husband has flown many times with pi air and he says you care about your bottom line only. it takes money out of our pockets every time we are delayed and or our luggage is lost. Now go and do the right thing."

Cons: "Traveling with kids we paid the higher price for a supposely non-stop flight (other better airlines were cheaper with 1 stop). In reality, it made a refueling stop in Guam. This was not disclosed when we bought the tickets. We got an email the morning of the flight telling us the arrival was delayed by one hour still nothing about a stop. We found out when we were checking in at the airport. Then, while stop on Guam, we got email saying the flight is 2 hours late! WTF"

Pros: "Great on-board service. Also, the food was very good for such a short flight."
Cons: "Inexplicable why the counter staff in Taipei would not begin issuing boarding passes until 4:05PM for a flight that LEAVES at 6:35PM! I was very concerned that the huge line would prevent me from processing through security and make the flight."

Pros: "Arrival to first flight was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "During flight- attendant would put her hands all over the cups when filling up water etc. I could not even get water after watching how she handled things that guests would be drinking out of. The flight was - freezing. I turned my light on, no one came to me. I then went and found an attendent (2 different times) and discussed that it was very very cold. I asked to see if they had another blanket, they said no. They didn't do much to change the temperature. I watched for 15 minutes, and no one went to change it. Once they did, it didn't help the situation. Later I requested again, and similarly nothing happened. The food- terrible. Dried up hashbrowns, that were overcooked. Meat, I couldn't even eat."

Pros: "The service was excellent - warm, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough leg room on the small airbus we had on the Vietnam - Manila leg for someone my height ( 1.83 m )"

Pros: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"

Pros: "Crew was nice, flight was smooth"
Cons: "Boarding was quite unorganised. Their system wasn’t efficient because they let people board even when it wasn’t their turn. Food was average, no entertainment in Economy class, took a while to dim the lights on a overnight flight then when it was time to wake up the lights were turned on fully rather than gradually."

Pros: "The boarding, crew & food."
Cons: "Comfort: Not enough leg room. Entertainment: None . Only a magazine to browse through. Investment in TV screens & inflight movies etc. would aid greatly!"

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was relatively efficient terms of service on the plane. Flight attendants were courteous and hospitable, despite the fact that the flight was full. It was also a relatively smooth flight."
Cons: "First of all, it took a very long time to check-in, despite the fact that I had done web check-in the night before. I think a lot of people felt the same way. It took also a very long time before we took off. We were told that it was because of the luggage being loaded but it took almost 2 hours before we finally took off. In the plane, there was a man who was obviously intoxicated and was talking in a very loud voice. I think that someone should have spoken to him about his behavior and proper decorum on the plane. Also, the flight didn't have WiFi working on the plane as well (we were told that it wasn't working) and the seat back was broken. I wish that they had told us that ahead of time to manage expectations. I hope that the next flight that I take on Philippine Airlines will be better. I hope that these comments/suggestions will really be taken into consideration so that they can make their service even better because I would really want to use Philippine Airlines again."

Cons: "They should raise the baggage allowance to 20K. People travel to Palawan from all over the world and probably would bring home more souvenirs if they had a higher baggage allowance. Otherwise flight was great."

Pros: "crew is very caring and attentive, food was delicious,"
Cons: "the business class seats should be upgraded into more comfortable flat beds, biz class bathrooms too cramped!"

Pros: "Flight from SFO to Manila was fine. On time without delay. Once we landed in Manila, our connecting flight was delayed. We were stuck at Manila international airport and not allowed to leave after coming through immigration! 8 hours in a terrible airport with no proper restaurant or bar! Only snack and coffee shops. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so that we could have at least gone into town."
Cons: "8 hour delay Being stuck at airport unable to leave Lack of a sit down restaurant or bar"

Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."

Pros: "For a short trip of almost two hours going to and from Taipei, I did not expect to receive such accomodating treatment from PAL. Crews are efficient and helpful."

Cons: "Seats were very small. Think Asian size. I am 5foot 10 inches and it was a struggle to sit there for 3 hours. There is no tv on the plane. They want you to use your personal device which I would not do as this would drain my battery. There is no charging station on the plane. 3 out of the 4 PAL flights were delayed each by two hours or more. I would not take this airline again. I got a cheap fare of $600 roundtrip and now I know why it was so cheap. The airport in Manila is so shitty limited seating and limited choices of food."

Pros: "Ok its flight are nice and accomodation are nice"
Cons: "Foods are poor because they have only two choices!!!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Service was bad, delayed flight, etc."

Pros: "Friendly staff; value for the money"
Cons: "Boarding procedures not very organized"

Pros: "The boarding and landing was okay."
Cons: "Crew don’t engage well. Plane smells like poop the whole time."

Pros: "Price was great and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "All food and even water cost money. The check in line took extremely long. The seat was not padded enough so I was sitting on a lump the whole trip"

Cons: "Seats that recline and quieter announcements especially the game"

Pros: "All the crew were super pleasant and friendly despite attending to very rude European passengers."
Cons: "Keep up the excellent work!"

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: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Stop charging passengers for water."

Cons: "The luggage took ONE HOUR to come out after the flight!!!"

Cons: "They should improve tge delayed flight"

Pros: "Crew was professional and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "It is almost a given that most domestic flights to Manila are delayed and our flight was 1 hour and 10 min delayed. Fortunately, I was getting frequent updates that helped with the planning on when to leave for the airport."

Pros: "I enjoyed the captains announcements"
Cons: "Typical one hour delay due to manila traffic...does this airline every depart or arrive on time?? Nooooo! Boarding was a cattle call as usual its a stampeed. The new 321 aircraft is crammed like cattle car, no legroom and a backpack can barely go under the seat....no recline so very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly"

Pros: "None!"
Cons: "Its a cheap airline.what do u expect?"

Pros: "Seat was ok but could not sit with my husband"
Cons: "Check in queue at Bangkok Airport was very long nd took ages"

Pros: "Quick and fast boarding"
Cons: "So when I bought the tickets. I paid for extra luggage of 40 kgs, then I unselected the assigned seating since I didn’t care where I sat, and I would rather use that money to pay for the extra luggage. I double checked several times before proceeding. At the check in counter, guess who had to pay extra because apparently the 40 kgs did not go through."

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: "Boarding was organized if there is such a thing in the philippines, but at least they tried. Iloilo airport is very nice and allows more room than manila fiasco. The flight for once left early and arrived early and low and behold we had a jetway and no bus!! Luggage was off in record time"
Cons: "No recline on seats and cramming too many in to such narrow rows..its worse than a new york city bus in the 70s."

Pros: "Nothing about lastminute.com"
Cons: "Lastminute.com rebooked my outbound flight two dat past the original booked date then left the return flight the same which meant the return was before the outgoing. Then to make it worse they tried to charge me additional 80 pounds to change the return ticket."

Cons: "I had the fattish person next to me who had most of his body in my seat."

Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"
Cons: "Too cold in the aircrat"

Pros: "No thing about this flight"
Cons: "Not good good on board they don't have variety of food no credit card accepted"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Because of the weather delay, I made it by the skin of my teeth to my next flight. It was quite stressful waiting for my baggage to come out so I could re-check in to my next destination."

Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."

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: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"

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 hassles check in"

Cons: "Limited luggage"

Cons: "Despite baggage being checked through from HK to Davao, Cebu offloaded luggage in Manila and failed to forward."

Pros: "Early and on time"
Cons: "The Allocation of 5 kg per customer for the check in was too small, and they didn’t have an option to upgrade or increase"

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "Worst seats I have ever sat in, took a red eye out of Dubai and the cabin lights were on for over half the flights."

Cons: "We have travelled 3 times in 2 weeks by Cebu Pacific and all flights were delayed and NOBODY gave us an announcement"

Pros: "On board Staff was great. Made everyone as comfortable as possible."
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: "Flight was ahead of time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled. No information about refund"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."

Pros: "No fuss,simple budget air travel"
Cons: "Nothing,does the job for a 1 hr flight"

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."

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: "They put me in front row...nice crew"
Cons: "Interesting condensation coming from plane due to intense humidity - looked like smoke in entire plane!"

Pros: "Landing was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours!"

Pros: "Crew is great"
Cons: "Ticket agents are awful. Very horrible on baggage"

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: "Nice modern plane, great crew."
Cons: "Modern compact seats not very comfortable, and very little kneeroom. But fair prices, so overall a good value."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor food options. Seats were cramped for me (I’m 6 foot tall). No logical boarding organisation (free for all)."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "One of the tightest legroom. Said they were giving out sim cards but never got one even after asking for one. It was ok that we didn't get one but not ok that 2 crew members said they will get us one and never did. If you don't have it, just honestly say you don't have enough. Or just don't offer it in the first place!! No drinks... not even a glass of water without having you pay for it."

Cons: "I haven't been able to take the flight because of corona virus restrictions and haven't been refounded"

Cons: "More orderly boarding process by zone, on-time departure and arrival"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Provided good service and snacks."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No wonder Taoyuan International Airport is one of the worst airports in the world. Even if you have checked in online, there is no separate counter for baggage drop."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "CUSTOMER SERVICE"

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. Also if the cabin crew were attentive.. 2 male cabin crews were not as attentive to their passengers, but I want to thank the flight supervisor who was very attentive to our needs."

Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "Seats could be better"

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

Pros: "Our flight was delayed for 2 hours, and those people who are in charged for opening the gates for boarding was clueless to what row or zone are they welcoming first or what not. The lines were long and people were disappointed and unruly."
Cons: "Trained your staff!!"

Cons: "Even i asked for 3 times i still could not get a pen from blonde haired host to fill the visa application. i filled in the airport and took a long time to find a pen. Just wasted time, thanks."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At least free water would have been ok. Paying ng for a glass for a water? What a joke"

Pros: "Decent fare; organized boarding system"
Cons: "Delay both ways;"

Pros: "Good looking flight attendants"
Cons: "7 hrs late, freezing cold, Couldn't understand Captain's English. Terrible website - just doesn't work."

Pros: "Best plane landing I have had in a long time"
Cons: "Take off delay from HKG"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Pretty much everything. Won’t be flying AirAsia again."

Pros: "Accommodating staff. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Delayed over a delayed flight. Overcharged price, they charged you for processing fee which is not necessary I think for the card."

Pros: "After check in"
Cons: "Check in"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was only a 50 minutes flight and the cabin crew were very nice , the seats were leather and all in all very comfortable"
Cons: "Once on board all was fine , the flight was delayed by 27 minutes"

Pros: "リーズナブルな運賃"
Cons: "機内をもっと快適に過ごせるように努力してもらいたい"

Cons: "Because of a delayed flight, I missed the check-in by minutes. There was no one there to help me even though YOUR flight was delayed in taking off as well. It seems increasingly the case that flights are delayed and the reservations we pay for are merely suggestions rather than a commitment by the airline. Further, when these things happen there is no compensation. The airline just keeps the money for services not rendered. The Air Asia website doesn't work. The online chat doesn't work. Nothing works from Air Asia. Of the three airlines servicing the Philippines, Cebu Pacific is the worst, followed by Air Asia, and Philippine Airlines being the best."

Pros: "I guess sometimes it's cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "There are always delays"

Cons: "Super delayed flight, no special lanes for those who web checked in already and dirty seats"

Cons: "Waited for 25 minutes at the stand in Manila on arrival for the linkway to be connected Pretty poor really as it added another 30 minutes to the journey"

Cons: "This has worse delays than any airlines I've tried."

Pros: "Plane departed and arrived early"
Cons: "They let everyone board via the Zone 1 lane, so my wife and I, carrying a 14kg cranky 2 year old, had to line up behind a long queue of others who didn't have to pay the most expensive premium you can pay on an AirAsia flight. Nonsense."

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"
Cons: "Received a notification that flight was delayed and given an option to reschedule after we checked in only. Checkin countervseperated my family and I even though we checked in early. Sent to Lounge and forced to pay even though directed by them."

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: "I WAS NOT INFORMED THAT I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY CHECK-IN LUGGAGE LIKE MOST DOMESTIC AIRLINES BUT WITH A LIMIT OF 15 KGS, I THOUGHT IT WAS INCLUDED IN THE FARE,"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Seats are very poor. Leg room very poor. I am average size and my knees were touching the front seat. They did not provide even a glass of water that you had to buy. You had to buy food and soft drinks and even then the quality of food was poor. A Terrible airline."

Pros: "The baggage fee was extreme and after I paid it my name was called out in the airports intercom system just to have me come back to the counter and pay more. Very embarrassing. The flight was delayed by 3 hours. A company worried about their reputation might consider reimbursing some portion of the baggage fee when the flight is delayed by 3 hours."
Cons: "Plane was clean and comfortable,"

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding took a while and they only had one exit door open upon arrival."

Pros: "I don't like anything about this airlines, they charge us for our luggage. They were late, you couldn't confirm flight online. I WILL NEVER TAKE THIS AIRLINES AGAIN!"
Cons: "It was delayed twice on our trip to and from. They give box lunch of meal to compensate the 2 hrs delay. Very poor in information. Wish it could have been better because our stay in the province was great except the flight!"

Cons: "Had no idea that the maximum for a checked bag was 10kgs (which is nothing if your bag is large enough to check). Having already paid to check a bag I had to fork out another $100 to check my bag (a mid-sized duffle) what a total rip-off and bummer. Then there was the drama about whether I could take my scuba regulator through security or not and then there was the drama about a tripod and then there was the flight! No food (unless you had pre-booked it) and then you had to pay for water.....a new level of low class in low class airlines."

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: "I hated this Airline it was the worst Airline ever flown in my life I will never ever fly them again"

Cons: "This airline is a complete joke They have NO IDEA what customer service is Three of us had to rebook an earlier flight, same day as original ticket... NO REIMBURSEMENT, had to pay for three more tickets They broke a fragile purchase and said, too bad. Again, zero compensation. Fly with CEBU AIR!!!!!"

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."

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."

Pros: "I'd like my money I spent on a hotel back"
Cons: "Multiple delays of my flight cost me a full day at Boracay (not just on paradise island, but also the money spent on hotel for that day). Flight was pushed back 8 hours, so didn't end up getting to Boracay til 1AM. THANKS AIR ASIA"

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!"

Cons: "My sister in law was not allowed on the flight they refused to let her on the flight. I hope you did not charge my credit card. I want reimbursement if so. 1209-480-8796 James please call me"

Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Five hours sitting in the terminal in Kalibo!! No weather issues!! Baggage fees at ticket counter. Considering the fare we paid this is not a big deal. But the delays?? Leaving Manila, we sat on the plane at the gate for over 90 minutes!! Waiting for clearance to take off because of heavy air traffic in Kalibo?? They have five gates there!! Not a whole lot of sympathy doled out by theses folks either. A piece of chicken and ball of rice at the gate in Kalibo hardly compensates for the excessive inconvenience we endured on both legs of our journey. Might consider directing my business elsewhere on future travel endeavors."

Cons: "The plane was late for 1.5 hours!! We almost missed our next flight from the same company ant the staff didn't want to help us at all to get to the next flight no matter how much we asked them. Unbelievable!!!"

Cons: "I tried to cancel my reservation, no refunds, no changes and no cancellations. Lost all my $400 for nothing. I would not recommend them to anyone."

Pros: "We eventually made it to manila. That was the only positive of the flight."
Cons: "I received 3 emails alerting me to the fact the flight was delayed. The first blamed operations and estimated a 45 minute delay, the next 2 had the same explanation but with a 1.5 hour delay. The final count was almost 5 hours. The terminal was sterile looking with awful lighting, and uncomfortable benches. There was no wifi (free or for a charge), and updates from the ground crew were few and far between and generally only happend after a question from a customer . They provided a meal due to the delay(there is no food in the terminal except a small kiosk that closed earlier that evening), but a greasy chicken leg and ball of white rice don't do much to make up for losing 4 hours of sleep before a 20 hour trek to America the next day (rather the same day as we got in at 330 am). We will never fly through manila or kalibo again as a result of this trip, and never again fly airasia."

Pros: "Not much but the flight crew was alright."
Cons: "I've taken AirAsia twice on my travels in the Philippines, one of the times, the flight was very very delayed.The other, they changed the flight time 2 hours AHEAD of schedule and made that flight the last flight out for a day. Called the customer service hotline and they have terrible customer service, did not really come up with any solutions and I was placed on hold numerous times for a very long time. I ended up having to wait until the next day to get on a flight, which made me lose a day at my other destination."

Pros: "NONE"
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
