This trip was canceled by the airline and we have never been repaid or rescheduled despite many inquiries.
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Pros: "Amazing crew , both ground and in fligbt"
Cons: "The food (fish and rice) was tasteless."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process. Everyone rushed in when the gate was opened. No sequential boarding."
Pros: "yes the crew are good and accomodating"
Cons: "hoping the seats can adjust a little bit more to recline"
Cons: "Adding cookies and drinks to relieve hunger or low blood sugar of passengers."
Pros: "you ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Cons: "Seat configuration in economy is exactly like a budget airline cebu pacific a330 both at 3-3-3..meal was just peanuts. It would actually be cheaper to use Cebu pacific and buy a proper meal"
Pros: "Entertainment was good and food and snacls"
Cons: "Communication with passengers about the 7 hour flight delay I experienced. We were not given food and drink vouchers"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival by over 45mins ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food and lack of IFE and WiFi"
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."
Cons: "Stellar service from check-in especially cabin staff was on point. Thank you PAL"
Pros: "Leg room was small."
Pros: "Everything but the inflight entertainment. Nothing impressive."
Pros: "Theno del crew were polite and cheerful, efficient in their work. Seats are okay, more legroom would be better."
Cons: "no delays on schedules."
Pros: "Crew male"
Cons: "Should be ontime"
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
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: "All good. New plane, pleasant staff, on timr"
Pros: "There was some form of entertainment that they provided in the form of iPads so I didn't feel bored on the flight as I have trouble sleeping on flights. Because Dubai has an issue with transferring my bags, the airline did find and place my bag on the next flight"
Cons: "Some of the programs had audio only and no videos. The food on the flight was subpar at best, the breakfast meal had scrambled eggs that had no form at all. THEY WERE RUNNY EGGS AND HAD THE CONSISTENCY OF BABY FOOD. Dubai has a habit of not transferring my checked bag to my continuing flight. And Dubai placed me on the wrong bus upon arrival so I couldn't get my bag to transfer my bag"
Cons: "delayed take-off and took 20 extra minutes before disembarking"
Pros: "Access to myPAL Player"
Pros: "In flight meal was respectable, plane was clean, staff very professional."
Cons: "Terminal 2 lacked amenities and there’s no way to transit to other terminals to use their services. Multiple security checks (3) completing the same procedures."
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."
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."
Cons: "I had to pay again for the ticket even when I did my confirmation with time."
Pros: "Food was warmed to my liking. Crew were professional - but a bit too rigid. I was seated with a guy that was coughing all the entire 16 hours flight and I requested to be seated somewhere else but attendant simply said they can't do anything. I asked if they can ask someone a bit younger and fit to change seat with me but crew never got back to me. In fairness, they said they'll try."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."
Pros: "Both the flights were high quality and easy."
Cons: "The 13 hour layover in Manila was terrible. Philippine airlines has one room with very few good places to sleep. That night of sleep was really uncomfortable and staying in one room for so long drove us crazy."
Cons: "It was horrible. A Delayed flight and then it took forever to get off the plane when we got to cebu"
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."
Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"
Pros: "On time Departure, quick flight. comfortable seat"
Cons: "No wifi. No entertainment"
Pros: "On time departure Short wait for checked luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No inflight wifi Sparce terminal, very few food options"
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: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "One hour delay starting and 45 min. at the end, no Gate available."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive. Anticipated the passengers needs. The food was delicious too."
Pros: "It's an old aircraft so we were given a personal ipad each passenger which is so good! We were emailed for flight time changed but didn't know our aircraft was changed too so our reserve seats were gone too."
Cons: "Food is very dull. Our flight coming in and out were both delayed."
Cons: "I need more legroom."
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"
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: "It seems like Philippine airlines is determined to be the lowest quality airline still flying. Too bad."
Pros: "Not much to speak of"
Cons: "They didn't mention the $20 airline use fee when I booked the flight"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive to our needs"
Cons: "Comfortability wasn't great."
Poor service in Bangkok. Flight attendant is not friendly. You have to buy everything like water and coffee. Expecting for International should have free food or free snacks.
Flight was 2 hours delayed. No explanation provided. Gates changes twice.
Pros: "Fun crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "I will never fly with them again they tried to charge me 114 us dollars for 1 bag. I only paid 43 dollars for my ticket.."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but the beer wasn't cold. Then the plane became painfully cold during the flight."
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!"
Cons: "Want to have a USB charging port on a seat"
Pros: "Serge and the cabin crew were grey. The pilot made up 20 minutes on a 1 hour flight, came in late from previous flight."
Cons: "Scheduling. CP is ALWAYS late, and messes up connections. Hard to coordinate remedies with my phone turned off. It hadn't been once, 10, or 20 times, but EVERY time."
Cons: "Boarding is a fiasco with cebu pacific they should try zones and separate lines like japan!"
Cons: "No food. Major delay without announcement"
Cons: "Super delayed flight they dont offer even water and to think we are travelling with children."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t full so crew should have let us spread out"
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: "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: "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: "Its a cheap airline.what do u expect?"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly service."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac as take-off was delayed by 45 minutes."
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: "Boarding was quick and flight was on time."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, but you get what you pay for."
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: "cheap flight"
Cons: "delayed flight by almost 1 hour. no discipline officer to impose noisy and disturbing co-passengers"
Pros: "Nice new equipment A321 and FA always nice"
Cons: "Baording is always a cattle call, they attempt to go by rows this time but still a mess of crowding and shoving. The gate announced boarding and everyone jumped, then they tried to refuse those in line making it even worse. Poor gate agents!!! Then as always they blame manila teaffic for delays....so irritating. Almost an hour late...no reason it was sunny at both airports and this schedule is set weeks ahead and they still claim heavy traffic..ridiculous"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, landed ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too cold!!"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Was kindly moved to exit row after inquiring at checkin..very nice agent. Very comfortable and great legroom...unlike the hideous crammed in rows behind. 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: "So delayed!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "On time. Organized boarding. Roomy seats"
Pros: "Flight was ahead of time. Friendly crew."
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Disorganised handling of passengers"
Pros: "I was as european preferred being offered a seat at the emergency exit, if I was healthy and able to assist..leaving me much more leg space.....being not so small and tiny as many asians.... !!!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "It's a budget airline so don't expect complimentary food or drinks. You get what you pay for."
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."
Not even water served - in the tropics, can at least give each passenger a small bottle! How much will that cost Air Asia? … less than 1% of a ticket price.
Cons: "Ramp instead of stairs. Offer free drinks"
Cons: "Poor airport, stranded in lines for 2.5 hours and almost missed the flight."
Pros: "I am missing my luggage’s"
Cons: "Where is my luggage"
Cons: "Every time I’ve used AirAsia it’s been delayed. Instead of being apologetic they’re always smug about how I can take a different airline. So I did!! Never fly with this airline again. Poor service poor flight planning and poor attitude. Shame on you AirAsia."
Cons: "CUSTOMER SERVICE"
Pros: "The comfort of the seat, its wider... Since I am broad shouldered I need a comfy seat."
Cons: "We just landed and the two cabin crews were chatting. One passenger stood up since she couldn't hold it and that she really needs to vomit one cabin crew laughed loud when the guest went inside the restroom. Maybe the cabin crew was surprised, but it wasn't a good to see."
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "Seats could be better"

Cons: "not taking off hours late"
Cons: "Delayed 30min The Manila Domestic terminal is really bas"
Pros: "I have seen some bad reviews abt airaisa and for sure i was afraid when i booked with them but i think each experience is different. I use airaisa to go to 2 city and 3 country and i have zero negatie comment . It was a nice experience with them . Always on time . Clean plane ."
Cons: "The connecting flight in between was not very clear during search. It was only Manila to Cebu but there was a connecting flight to Taiwan. I would have forfeited my flight if I had not brought my passport along. So the route was MANILA to TAIWAN to Cebu WHY DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SUCH A STUPID ROUTE??? AND UNLIKE OTHER TRAVEL SITES, YOURS DO NOT EMPHASIZE CONNECTING FLIGHTS VERY CLEARLY!!! Also, there was no way to cancel it. I was really disappointed in your site!"
Cons: "Flight was very late... in the airplane it was way too cold, like we entered in a freezer.. and they didnt even offered blanket so we didnt qppreciate that part at all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible"
Pros: "Accommodating staff. Arrived safely."

Cons: "Flight was delayed (as most of Air Asia flights)"
Cons: "Their customer service and check-in policy."
Pros: "I guess sometimes it's cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "There are always delays"
Pros: "Vegan food was surprisingly okay! Very friendly staff."
Cons: "No entertainment. [TV & Audio]"
Pros: "Flight time Cost"
Cons: "They don’t fly from Clark to KL Seat pitch excruciating for most average height people Particularly on a four hour flight Everything is penny pinched Crew are verging on brusque Some very loud music on boarding with some American rap music, hardly appropriate on a south east Asia airline"
Cons: "This has worse delays than any airlines I've tried."
Cons: "No space for luggage due to lack of enforcement of one carry on policy. Seats are way too close and they lean back, knee was in the seat in front the whole flight. Plane is old and landing was hard."
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."
Pros: "Nothing. There’s nothing to like on air Asia. I don’t understand how they won best low cost airline. But lol, it can’t even properly fit a 175cm/62kg man."
Cons: "The flight was on time. The food was disgusting. Ordered chicken adobo and it came in a form that I guess even a dog won’t eat it! Even my cat food looks much better, and it has the sauce. Their adobo missed the... adobo sauce. Flew twice with them but nah. Not gonna do it again. And I’ve got more than 10 low cost companies. Cebu too. And all European low costs. Cebu, is much much better than airasia. At least their food is delicious and you have enough space."
Pros: "Just Point to Point, Nothing Else."
Cons: "Ground Staff and Cabin Crew needs training on Proper handling of guests. Just saying.. Theres a better way of herding cattle at check-in"
Cons: "not bad"
Pros: "I always like the flight attendants. The staff at Air Asia was great in helping me book an alternative flight because of flight delays from China."
Cons: "The flights are always delayed."
Cons: "Act to us like we are stupid and inssit the weight each bag. The check in crew gave us bad vibe. Like they got somtging with us."
Pros: "Making it from one point to the other was the only thing that went well."
Cons: "I was double charged for the ticket. Customer service has been researching this for little over two weeks. Flight was delayed for just over two hours with multiple gate changes. Customer service at the terminal was no better than the customer service on the hotline."
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: "It was just a one hour flight but no complimentary dribks seved."
Cons: "Instead of getting to manila in 20:00 ive got there on 1:00 am!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Delays, seats are poor, unclean. Leg room is too little.very bad customer service"
Pros: "everything was ok"
Pros: "Not really anything good to say"
Cons: "Terminal 4 is old and hard to get to if you are transferring from an international flight"
Pros: "The price was low, but I believe there were other airlines in the same price range."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed for over an hour. They did not report all the delays to the flight status sites. I think it was in an effort to keep their on time percentages higher. Choose a different airline if you prefer to be on time."
Pros: "LOW fares"
Cons: "Hey I know its the Philippines, I've been here many times, but ALL of the Air Asia flights were delayed, ours 2 hours...we flew Air Asia to Kalibo last week, delayed 4 hours. But Cebu Pacific flights were all delayed too. Just prepare for long waits at waiting area. Ferry boats are often cancelled or delayed too, its just the way it is here in the PI."
Cons: "Deleted flight"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, for an airline that is. F/A's were very polite, and professional."
Cons: "First flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours. Second flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours. Seats were very uncomfortable. Head rest doesn't adjust. Lost my phone on the airplane back to Manila. I tried to call Air Asia, and they sent me to airport lost and found. Airport lost and found sends me to Air Asia,........... after about 10 times of doing that I finally got an Air Asia rep on the phone to take me seriously. But she didn't see too concerned or interested in finding my phone for me. I told her to check the plane, and contact me if they found it or not....... NO reply! So I called back the day after, and again, got the run around...... Now, this second assistant I told the same thing. No communications or customer care with this airline. I worked for the airlines for 14 years, and I could check a plane for a cell phone in about 10 minutes, and get back to you... Air Asia that's like pulling hens teeth!"
Pros: "Nice, efficient crew, comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 5 hours from the original time, a lot of confusion in the boarding room, and only gave out a box of fried chicken for the meal, and I m a vegetarian. would have even eaten a bag of peanuts...."
Pros: "Air Asia said, my ticket was refunded back to my account, I called my card company and talked to the air Asia crew teller at the airport's counter at the same time. My card said, my purchased went through successfully but air Asia at Manila airport didn't understand that! My parents went home straight front the airport frustrated!! So I had to purchased another plane tickets with anothe airline, and now they're enjoying Macau and Hong Kong!! I will not give you my business ever again and my whole family. :( P.s I even got a flight reminder email on 1/22/16 and their flight with you was supposedly yesterday 1/28/16. -not a happy customer-"
Pros: "Attentive and approachable"
Cons: "Just the departure too delayed"
Cons: "Rescheduling flights, then rescheduled flight is late departing. Poor staff. Very poor web design."

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and the pilot gave good updates. Leather seats."
Cons: "Seats were way to compressed, much like every other short-haul plane. A lot of items were unavailable; we flew around lunchtime."
Cons: "Air Asia doesn't provide water, which is fine if they air a "budget" airline, but they don't take credit card which is a huge hassle when trying to purchase things in flight."
Pros: "On line check in was awesome. Was able to avoid long queues. Smooth flight. We arrived earlier than scheduled. Friendly staff."
