Not a straight flight, they lied! After paying for the plane ticket, I received an email that will stop in Incheon, delayed my connecting flight to Vegas. I missed my flight, and my wife had to rebook for same day flight. I will never fly Philippine Airlines again.

Cons: "for a long flight seat could have been a bit bigger."
Cons: "It’s a complete torture to be in transit at Manila airport.a large number of Passengers are kept hostage in a small room with a capacity of about 40 persons.

Pros: "Good Crew"
Cons: "Lower their fare"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "We had to wait for additional passengers after boarding and then again after they came in to take off, so waited an additional 2 hours on the plane (it really adds up on 12+ hour flights). Communication about he delay was mediocre, and the website did not have updated flight info for pickup."
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: "We had about a 35 minute wait once on the plane before we could take off. Not sure why it took so long (other than they said we were number 7 for takeoff). Also once we went through airport security and sat around we had to go through security again before getting to our waiting area (or hold area) but we had to throw out our water. Not sure why seeing as we purchased the water in the airport."
Pros: "The plane we use airbus 321"
Cons: "None so far so good , the only downside was we use stair in manila airport not the bridge which is connected to the airport building"

I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward."

Cons: "I was not allowed to carry on my guitar, despite it being short enough and there being plenty of room in the overhead bins. I was told that this is the official policy, but there is nothing written on the website about a no carry-on-guitar policy or in the emails for my e-ticket.

The space between seats are a bit narrow

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."

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"
Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
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 about lastminute.com"

Cons: "I had the fattish person next to me who had most of his body in my seat."
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: "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 were the second flight out of Manila, and the plane was 3 hours late. You have to pay for everything on the plane, even water. The terminal had to be 90 degrees."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. No information about refund"
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!"

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"
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."
Pros: "Our flight was comfortable and problem free."
Cons: "The only thing that was a little inconvenient was the flight was more than an hour late."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "There is nothing to like about Cebu Air"
Cons: "They're totally classless-inprocessing stinks, charge for just one bag, charge for food, and then run out of everything except potato chips. Cebu Air is the bag-lady of discount airlines!"
