Easy and straightforward.
It was a short flight. But it went very well. Staff was nice and friendly.
This trip was canceled by the airline and we have never been repaid or rescheduled despite many inquiries.

Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite. Cannot complain. The seat in Premium Economy was better than expected. Certainly worth the upgrade."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better. I don't really know what to normally expect. The cloth napkins and metal flatware were certainly appreciated."
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: "Crew was nice!"
Cons: "The beef with rice meal tasted weird."
Cons: "It was all good, the crew were very accomodating and keeping us comfortable during the flight. It became uncofortable midflight because of one passenger, named Rachelle Marie Perez Herrera Lim sitting in 54 B started to complain about one female crew. She was unreasonable, unccoperative."

Cons: "Delay last min gate change when they knew earlier Boarding not orderly"
Pros: "Check in counter ground staff was very helpful"

Cons: "Food served did not have any vegetarian choices."
Pros: "All good. New plane, pleasant staff, on timr"

Pros: "Everything was on time and quick all"
Cons: "All went well"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, the boarding process was fantastic."

Pros: "This time the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "I was updated ahead of time about the status of my flight."
Cons: "it is the worst airline I ever fly."
Pros: "Getting onboard"

Cons: "Put us on separate seat...we should seating close"
Cons: "The menu mainly. I have to understand that passengers are Filipino. Everything is so with sugar! It is not a complain. just I will have to get organized next time to buy some fruit or something more in accordance with diabetes and high blood pressure. overall great trip!"

Pros: "the crew and food were both good."
Cons: "too much much delay , the were delay at every stop over"
Pros: "Personnel were kind"
Cons: "the space of the seat is too narrow. the announcers can barely be heard. White bread at meals should be eliminated and whole wheat or more nutritious grains should be used."
Pros: "Their website would not let us manage our booking, ie. change seats or pay for additional luggage. Thus incurring larger fees at airport. Customer Service at airport was worthless and condescending at best!"
Pros: "Service and movies"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, though I wish they were given more information on boarding time due to the late arrival of the plane. The flight was half empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "The food was abysmal. I chose the beef option — a small lump of "beef" that was overcooked and under sauced, accompanied by a sad pied of steamed broccoli and a disproportionately large portion of white rice. The quinoa salad was passable, but the "peach cobbler" dessert course was a flavorless mass of gelatinous goo."
Pros: "Quickest flight available"
Cons: "Philippine Airlines food is bland and very soggy"
Pros: "Basic airline services were provided"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we weren't given the reasons for the delay. No apologies were given either."
Pros: "The seats were larger than most international coach flights with enough leg room that when the person in front of me reclined, my knees were left untouched. They also had very well organized transfers at both of my layover locations, alleviating stress in 1-2 hour international transfers. Cabin crew was more than friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The meals could have been better and they frequently ran out of options. Meal portions were smaller than I've seen on previous flights and I was left wishing I'd brought more snacks."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "No entertainment. Boarding was slow and inefficient. Lack of information on the delay at airport. No notification on change of gate."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and comfy blankets."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "If you are transiting flying with kids- avoid this carrier like plague. My 10 year old threw up- had air sickness while take off and they offboarded us saying they will keep us for observation. We didn't realize that we would not be able to get tickets on the next flight as it was sold out and the ground staff would want to fleece us for fare difference etc etc. I was traveling alone with 2 kids in a foreign country where I had never beem before and the airline ground staff were horrible. I went through hours or stress and eventually when I broke down in stress they accomodated me on the next flight. I wouldn't recommend traveling with this airline if you are traveling alone with kids."
Cons: "They left my luggage behind. But I got it back the next day on the first flight out at no expense. The flight was slightly delayed - no fault to PAL, just a couple of super-late passengers."
Pros: "it was on time crew are very nice."
Cons: "there no entertainment system, everything is charged even water bottle. some airlines give small water bottle."
Pros: "Seats and timeliness were good"
Cons: "Checking in process should be improved"
Pros: "Provided good service and snacks."
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."
Cons: "CUSTOMER SERVICE"
Pros: "Very friendly - free water & snack."
Pros: "Clean plane Nice team Great job"
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: "Best plane landing I have had in a long time"
Cons: "Take off delay from HKG"
Pros: "We arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "No entertaimenf of any kind. Uncomfotable seats"
Cons: "I booked through kayak which redirected to kiwi. On the boarding pass it gave the wrong terminal (domestuc terminal, when i was flying internationally) then to find out the terminal got updated online. In addition, the flught was delayed and gates were changed and i found out AFTER i already boarded the plane. Terrible."
Cons: "I did not like how slow they were at Manila airport. It was a shame how long they took with each person."
Cons: "Very long time to wait"
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: "Price was OK, perfect timing, kind staff."
Cons: "Flight was delayed (as most of Air Asia flights)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Cons: "Their customer service and check-in policy."
Cons: "This has worse delays than any airlines I've tried."
Pros: "Cabin is well air conditioned."
Cons: "No notice of slight flight delayed. Comfort rooms are not clean and some have no running water."
Cons: "The crew hate their jobs."
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."
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: "The boarding was always late"
Cons: "Plane is always late."
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "No customer service. very hard to contact. Airline will nickel and dime you on everything. Very difficult to make changes. Once checked in, you can't make changes unless you call, but hard to get through. Always a delay."
Cons: "There was horrible warm cabin air during pre-flight takeoff. We felt nauseous because of it. On our flight back AirAsia was late for 2 hours. Horrible airline."
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: "Not Much"
Cons: "Old plane that was delayed at every possible point in the process."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice adding up to a five hour delay. The crew gave no reason , no apology, complete lack of communication was astounding. When i mentioned it to other travel agents they all said the same thing, Air Asia is always delayed, i was told to use other airlines. Indeed, while awaiting my flight to Manilla I saw 2 Philippines Air flights depart on time. One of my fellow travellers had given themselves7 hours between flights and missed their flight to Dubai because of the delay."
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: "everything was ok"
Cons: "Did not fly Due to 2 delays and after waiting in departure area for 5 hours ++ I decided not to fly. Had to go through Immigration to re enter Manila Very disappointed, no airline reps available to talk to. Had hotel pre paid in Macau, all up lost AUD$2400."
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: "Left early, arrived early"
Cons: "Late but that's expected"
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: "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...."
Cons: "Frustrating sitting on the aircraft waiting for clearance. Really? Heavy traffic in Kalibo? No weather issues."
Pros: "Friendly staff and plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours returning from Palawan"
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
Cons: "Rescheduling flights, then rescheduled flight is late departing. Poor staff. Very poor web design."
Cons: "Our helper who got the ticket were made to pay for her carry-on baggage because the allowance was only 2 kilos. The penalty was almost the price of the ticket. I already paid for the check in baggage which is around a third of the ticket cost. Next time you know, you will pay just to use the toilet."
Pros: "Boarding from the front, or the back. Short flight time."
Cons: "4+ hour delays with no explanation, NO FOOD THAT YOU DON'T PURCHASE, and the always present exorbitant baggage fees. You get NO checked bag for your standard fare. You must pay to check ANY bag, and that payment doesn't cover much weight. Anything overweight is WAY too expensive. They also want to weigh your carry-on, to make sure you're not using a carry-on bag to beat their crappy baggage fees."
