Read more about PAL Express reviews
Pros: "Movie selection was ok"
Cons: "They ran out of meals offered me cracker and bread"
Cons: "My connecting flight going to CGY from MNL August 24th was really depressing - took very long on the runway, assuming it's due to runway traffic? BUT, don't they know these problem occurs almost daily? then my luggage wasn't on my flight? had to stay 1night in hotel which PAL should've pay for."
Pros: "Nothing special about this flight but everything up to standard."
Cons: "30 min delay due to Manila airport constraints. Is there any plan to actually finish the construction of Manila airport? Seems like my whole adult life the reconstruction is still going on and on. Probably my grandchildren will see the finish but I lost hope."
Cons: "Not good for elderly passengers w/ health issues and traveling alone!!! Ridiculous delays. Extremely inconvenienced at the Holiday Inn Hotel, where PAL bused us early morning b/c plane was grounded. Waited too long to check into hotel room until PAL resolved payment issue. Departed SF next day."
Pros: "They bumped us up to seats with unlimited leg room (no seats in front of us). It was an incredibly comfortable flight. Since it was also a very short flight, I can't say all that much"
Pros: "Seat was okay but mine was not the seat assigned to me - which was non- existent."
Cons: "Punctuality to fly to destination was lacking."
Cons: "If the stewardes would at least smile and made me feel welcome"

When I checked in, there was no option available for selecting a gluten-free meal. The lounge offerings were inadequate for someone with a gluten-free diet, and the staff in the lounge were not helpful at all.

I’m 6’2” and the seats were too close together for my knees, very uncomfortable.

The return flight has been a nightmare. I am stuck in Singapore right now because PAL has not managed to resolve my return to Manila. The engine blew up on take off

Everything could better always late always rescheduled flight is worse and costs me a hotel room! The dirtiest planes I’ve ever flown on slowest to board . Just awful will never fly again with them

Boarded the plane last even while I was seated at the back and had to have my bag separate. The same exact special request meal was served as the flight an hour beforehand

The food was ordinary, this could be improved. Sleeping was comfortable enough for several hours sleep. The layover time in Manila Mabuhay lounge for 17 hours was awful. Surely I could have been given a flight to Perth within that time on another airline. At 74 years of age I find that far too long and stressful and will probably not travel with Philippine Airlines again for that reason. The food offering on board and in the lounge was also a little underwhelming. The crew were wonderful and the flight comfort was good also.

I paid for an aisle seat on my booking but for my return flight back in the US I was ina middle seat. I didnt realize this until i was already on the plane.

The flight itself was ok. However, the plane has 2 bathrooms for about 200 people. After the meal service there was a line between 10-15 people deep standing in the aisle waiting to use the bathroom. This went on for over an hour. The airlines tell us safety is their priority and to keep seatbelts on whenever on the plane but they allow a line of people to stand in the aisle for over an hour waiting for a bathroom. Absurd and unacceptable.

Flight delayed by hour for departure. No real announcements or updates until told to start boarding

I’ve had previous bad experiences with Philippine Airlines so i was pleasantly surprised with the vast improvement in comfort, service and food quality.

Terrible, I will never ever ever attempt to fly on Cebu Pacific. I understand that it’s a cheap flight option but they take cheap experience to the next level.

The front desk and early check in was fantastic and the flight did not have any turbulence

better handling of the checked in luggage. they destroyed mine

Should’ve not separated those who checked-in online and those who checked-in at the airport

the process of paying for the excess baggage weight, the check in process and the boarding process are subhuman. this is an airline devoid of customer service

Cebu Pac has a habit of changing boarding gates. They do a lot of remote boarding. So just be attentive to the announcements, especially if it's near your boarding time.

It was a low cost flight, so no high expectations. The experience was average.

Crew was very helpful because I used a wheelchair to get around

Flight was delayed for almost 30 minutea, I had difficulties to catch up the connecting flight. Bit due to tje well organized Singapore airport I was able to make it

The flight was delayed for 3 hours and I missed my transit flight.
