Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and they had good movies."
Cons: "The food can be a little better"
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"
Cons: "From worst to worst."
Pros: "None at all."
Cons: "If they give you the seat assignment you pay for."
Pros: "The crew was good and professional. Friendly."
Cons: "Conduct an organized boarding procedure instead of just allowing anyone to board without making any prior announcements."
Pros: "Food and cleanliness!"
Pros: "Since it was over booked, my seat was upgraded to business class."
Pros: "crew was courteous overall."
Cons: "Younger male crew stewards spend a little too much time appeasing female passengers and female stewards. I asked a male steward for something very easy to do, instead he wasted about 30 minutes talking to two female passengers (that had moved from their assigned seats). Lacked discipline."
Pros: "Overall great"
Cons: "Was not able to online check in"
Pros: "Crew was great Seat could be better, recline and full bed hard to operate"
Cons: "Seat adjust buttons difficult to use"
Pros: "Ground and flight crew were great"
Cons: "Quality of in-flight snacks, beverages and IFE systems were very poor"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Terminal 2 in Manila has very few options for dining and gifts. Plane was late in arriving to Terminal 2; apparently had to offload in Terminal 1, then taxi to Terminal 2, then had to be inspected extensively before we could board. Due to late boarding and ~25 wheelchairs, boarding was disorganized."
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."
Pros: "The plane itself was very clean and well maintained"
Cons: "Staff was rude to customers, with poor responses and a lack of customer service skills. After a long delay of over two hours, you would have thought they would've have been more understanding and accomadating. They also displayed poor communication through all stages of the flight."
Pros: "Leg room was small."
Pros: "Horrible airline."
Cons: "tiny seats for tiny people, crappy food, cold in the jet, Really a low class airline."
Pros: "The flight was faster than going to Philippines and movies is convenient"
Cons: "when you ask for extra food coz youre hungry but crew tells you wait"
Pros: "Crew male"
Cons: "Should be ontime"
Pros: "Entertainment was good... boarding was good."
Cons: "Totally uncomfortable.... big guy had his legs almost on top of mine under the seat in front of me. He was so wide, his shoulders and arms were on top of my chest at some points of the journey. Bigger people should not be able to buy coach seats. They should have size and weight restrictions."
Pros: "Paid a little more for the bulk head seat in economy so had more leg room, however, less storage. Direct flight from SFO to MNL The flight attendant were okay"
Cons: "Boarding process in Manila is confusing as once you go through security they run your bag through again AT THE GATE. I don't think I've experience this at any airport and I've been to many countries. Also, once "corralled" in your assigned gate, there is limited seating. Getting in and out to go to the bathroom or get something to eat is a hassle. PAL international has it's own terminal (2) but all the airport lounges are in 3 or 1, and you have no access to those terminal once your in 2. Finally, the food option at PAL terminal is awful. For a major Philippines airline, I wish they would upgrade their terminal and make it more appealing for international travelers. For these reasons, I would consider flying another airline from US to Manila, e.g. Cathay Pacific, United, etc."
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: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate. The reason I was given was that the US rules require water is not allowed to be carried into the plane... In-flight entertainment did nto have many choices of action films."
Cons: "delayed take-off and took 20 extra minutes before disembarking"
Pros: "The flights themselves were good and the crew members were attentive to requests."
Cons: "The worst part was my departure flight was delayed a full 24 hours due to the airline combining two flights to ensure max capacity on board. No concessions were given and unfortunately I lost out on a whole day of my vacation, so beware if you book on Phillipine Airlines, you may not receive the flight dates which were originally booked."
Pros: "Excellent service, very organized boarding to airplane, nice food"
Cons: "On my Departure to Manila it's was almost 6 hours dealy which I lose my transport booking and reaching the hotel by 9 pm."

Pros: "The best flight crew and customer service was provided."
Cons: "my seat was broken and would not lock in a either upright or reclined position"
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."
Pros: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"
Cons: "The lounge was terrible , the food was average in the lounge , no international magazines or newspaper, the plane was so so so , food mediocre, entertainment was not good either ,"
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."
Pros: "The flight crew and seats"
Cons: "The poor communication and control of ground staff during boarding in Manila. Will not use PAL again due to the chaos there. Communication with customers was non existent"
Pros: "Great service, lots of movies to watch with free headsets provided, seats reclined even in the economy seats, and flight was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Un-organized boarding with late gate change"
Cons: "It was horrible. A Delayed flight and then it took forever to get off the plane when we got to cebu"
Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable aircraft, and pleasant staff. Would use them again!"
Cons: "Wish they would have warned us that we would be on lock down in the terminal at Manila when we went through security early. Cause we had to wait by the gate for 6 hours in a terminal that didn't have much else. Upstairs of Terminal 2 had no accommodations or restaurants/cafes. Just food stands. Still not bad though, would have been a nice warning though."
Pros: "the first time a strong turbulence happened, people were screaming and started praying. The pilot got on the speaker and assured the passengers that the plane is ok and able to handle any turbulence. He spoke in a very calm voice and I think it also calmed most of the passengers. I went back to sleep."
Cons: "I need more legroom."
Cons: "The ticket was never processed! Hence, when I arrived at the airport, I was unable to actually fly. Really, really disappointing. I recommend that Kayak reconsider its association with "Flight Network Sales.""

Pros: "the crew friendliness"
Cons: "twice delayed boarding"
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: "Fun crew, smooth flight."
Pros: "awsome deal awsome 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!"
Pros: "The boarding was organized"
Cons: "Free snacks?"
Pros: "The airline assigned the latest airplane to my flight. Its USB charging port was good."
Cons: "I do not know why the cabin crew provided a meal on 3 pm than much later around 5 pm. The flight arrived to the destination on 7 pm. I thought I ordered a dinner."

Cons: "Everything else"
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: "All is helpful"
Cons: "Make the plane clean..."
Pros: "Nothing. Website did not notify me when booking that visa for us was required so I did not even get to fly to my destination which was a waste of my time and money to drive 5hrs to the city and not get any of my money back."
Cons: "Put a notification when rsvp’n ticket that certain countries need a visa approval from their country before booking. Wasted my time/money so I didnt even get to go to Vietnam n wasted a 5hr drive to my city. At least could have gave me some future discount code since I couldn’t get any money back"
Pros: "Seat was ok. A little hard, but reclined enough to help. On time-a rarity for Cebu Pacific."
Cons: "At least a small meal and drinks on a 8.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Boarded early - then sat on runway in queue almost 1/2 hour - fault of Manila airport which has more traffic than it can handle, not of Cebu"
Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
Pros: "On time, allowed very early check in up to 4 hours before flight time"
Pros: "At least no gate change or delay..shock shock"
Cons: "Checkin as usual was understaff and slow....agent refused to enter our getgo numbers or change our seat assgnment as had been done in the past. Refused to orint boarding pass because i had on my phone....i dislike this and want paper backup! Speaker system for gate announcements at term 3 is the worst! Boarding is always bad but now a new system to read tickets is worse than ever! My knees touch the seat in front it is so crammed...at least short one hour of discomfort."
Pros: "cheap flight"
Cons: "delayed flight by almost 1 hour. no discipline officer to impose noisy and disturbing co-passengers"
Cons: "customer service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, landed ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too cold!!"
Cons: "Why do we have to pay for the smallest snacks? On a 4 hour flight??"
Cons: "My flight reservation couldn’t be found when I tried to check in online so I have to buy another ticket the day of for $400. When I got to the check in counter it turns out I already had a ticket. Kayak and Cebu were very unhelpful."
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: "So delayed!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "I was placed in a middle seat between a family, even though there was was 5 empty rows of seats. Thought that was annoying, but I moved to my own row and was happy."
Pros: "The seats by the window were large which was nice."
Cons: "They charge you for snacks and drinks. Despite the low price I already paid for the ticket and those amenities should be automatically included."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seat was small and uncomfortable. Had to pay for food and coffee for a 4 hour international flight. Never again"
Cons: "Crew seemed unfriendly, many small delays . There, passengers were no allowed in galley area to use toilet, had to walk through aisle #1"
Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"
Pros: "On time. Organized boarding. Roomy seats"
Pros: "While booking I tried to buy luggage allowance. Impossible. Hence at check-in Cebu Pacific unpleasant staff charged me US$55 on top of a $100 fare for my normal suitcase of clothes. The worst theft in my travel history of 110 countries world wide. Shameless greed and extortion once they have your trapped. It gets worse. Due family reasons I needed to fly home a couple days early, having every reason to believe my ticket was flexible. Nowhere did it say otherwise, nor did the booking site warn me. But rudely I was told too bad, zero flexibility. ZERO! They had empty seats on many suitable flights, just wanted to steal my return ticket, simple. Theft. Extortion. The worst imaginable. I went ahead and bought a 2nd return ticket with Philippines Airlines (far far superior airline). My Cebu Pacific seat was zero refund and was sold to someone else I guess. Too bad for Stupid Mr Customer (me) who mistakenly flies Cebu Pacific! NEVER EVER FLY CEBU PACIFIC! This 71-year-old 110-country travel veteran has warned you factually. An utterly disgusting company whose staff indifferently spits in the face of customers, the rudeness is delivered in a could-not-care-less tone followed by a hang up the phone after saying "No way, it's impossible speak to the travel agent for help. good-bye. Click.""

Pros: "Can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Unforeseen luggage charges that were way too expensive. Would not have flown the airline had I realized they charged for luggage on international flights. The charge was about $150, for the same luggage I brought with me for free on two prior international flights that were part of the same trip, on much better airlines for about the same ticket price. I could have tolerated a charge of $50, but I found $150 to be outrageous. Seats were narrow, legs hit the back of the seat in front. No need for such a configuration, since the flight was only 1/3 full. I won't fly Cebu Pacific again. Congratulations, you lost my business."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The entire process was a breeze"
Pros: "I like it because I arrived in Hong Kong earlier than the time we expect. So well done!"
Pros: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight twice. But still late."
Pros: "Clean plane nice space"
Cons: "Too much late ! Delay for 45 minutes"
Pros: "Nice and friendly crew and on-time arrival and departure - big difference from my past cebu pacific experiences where flight attendants were unprofessional, mean/impatient to older and foreign passengers, and delays were always expected."
Cons: "Crew were so slow to take food orders. It wasn't free and not everyone wanted to order so I didn't see any other reason."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by almost an hour and we waited on the tarmac. Terrible service. Terrible flight. Will never fly Cebu by choice."
Cons: "Ramp instead of stairs. Offer free drinks"
Cons: "No indication that the flight would be delayed was given until way late in the game. We could have taken our time getting from one terminal to another and saved on an expensive taxi ride had we known. The crew were being unreasonable to a couple of passengers for moving to an empty row. Seems like that would do the plane a favor by evening out the weight distribution."
Cons: "Delay Delay Delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Check in was ok iwith all our checked in bags tagged as Fragile to signify priority baggage that came with our AirAsia Visa credit card perks. Boarding was slightly chaotic."
Cons: "Room for improvement for priority checked in baggage upon arrival in Manila -- only 1 out of our 5 priority bags came out first while the other 4 came in last together with all the other non-priority bags."
Pros: "Very good, I like Air Asia"
Cons: "Delayed 30min The Manila Domestic terminal is really bas"
Pros: "Actual flight wasn’t bad."
Cons: "I spent 2 hours on the baggage drop queue even though there weren’t that many people in front of me. Airline shouldn’t offer web check-in if they’re going to take ages interviewing each passenger. Gate changed three times so it was chaos for all the flights involved. Plane left an hour 15 after scheduled take-off. No apology extended."
Pros: "Food was tasty, check-in was simple, flight arrived on time."
Cons: "None - no entertainment but didn’t expect any on budget airline."
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: "Price was OK, perfect timing, kind staff."
Cons: "Flight was delayed (as most of Air Asia flights)"
Pros: "It was just ok"
Cons: "If you almost 180cm and 95 kilos the leg room just not very comftable in economy seats. That why I say just ok for short flight. Then departing Hong Kong 2 trains and a bus to plane once inside airport crazy to find if not expirenced traveler"
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."
Pros: "No hassle checking in"
Cons: "The seat was a little unc"
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."
Cons: "We had fallen asleep right before food service, and were not even attempted to be served lunch,, I woke up soon after to see everyone else eating, yet the attendents were of course busy, and simply passed us, In us carriers, the attendent would pay attention and ask us a few minutes later if we wanted food. This could have been improved, as I didnt feel comfortable asking, there were 2 of us, not just one so we went hungry"
Pros: "The ladies at the counter were helpful and got me on earlier flight because mine was delayed for 3rd time."
Cons: "Always delay. Worst airline ever! I will not book Airasia again."
Pros: "It was just a one hour flight but no complimentary dribks seved."
Pros: "The air conditioning was great"
Cons: "It was postponed for 2 hours, the plane was full and apparently the check in employee thought it would be funny to give separate seats to a newly wed couple...Not Funny At All!!"
Pros: "I was with my girl"
Cons: "Flight delayed,then when we boarded the plane,we waited to lift off for 1 hour and 15 minutes.Other than that everything else was convenient."
Cons: "Delays, seats are poor, unclean. Leg room is too little.very bad customer service"
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: "Waiting on runway for nearly two hours, delayed an additional hour at the gate, and a complete lack of communication regarding delays"
Cons: "flight from puerto princesa to manila was delayed by four hours and we missed connection to Europe. We had to stay other terrible day in Manila and had to buy a new expensive ticket :-("
Pros: "Flying on Airbus 320"
Cons: "Meal and baggage choices must be made before flight or additional charges will be paid. Delayed 45 minutes for 1.5 hour flight!!"
Cons: "A new low in tight packing. Tray was too close to go down"
Cons: "Was charged for baggage for child even tho she had paid same fare as adults - staff said child not eliginle for carry on baggage allowance"
Pros: "Staff at the checkin counter were very polite and very reassuring - although as I checked in they didn't mention that the flight would be delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours before our flight, only to be told that there was a delay of 2 hours, then before our flight delay time another 2 hours was added, and a further 2 hours. We were supposed to land in Kalibo at 6.40pm, and didn't arrive until 1.15am!! The even more annoying thing is that i paid double the cost of the evening flight to arrive at our original time, I should have just taken the ferry at least then we could have enjoyed the near 12hour journey it took us to travel less than hour hour in the plane!! Poor piece of food whilst waiting 9 hours also!!"
Pros: "There was not much I liked about this flight. However was was rather inexpensive to pay for baggage prior to getting to the airport."
Cons: "I hate the fact that food, including water, was only available for purchase. It was a very tight squeeze sitting on this plane. My seat didn't hardly recline."
Pros: "Check-in online process was easy. Price was good. Staff was very helpful at the counter. Aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "The terminal bathrooms were awful in Aquino airport, not the airline's fault. Was so hard to board with 2 small kids amongst all the people rushing onto the plane. Would be better to have us board first or last. No free peanuts or water, I guess something only American companies do. No entertainment."
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"
Cons: "flight schedule was a disaster. from 230pm-545pm-730pm and finally departs 10pm. due to cancelled flights and delays, there's only one boat travelling from caticlan to boracay. we reach the hotel around 5am. same thing when we fly back 430 hours delay. I'm not going to book airasia anymore and tell my friends not to book airasia."
Cons: "Plane left 2 hours late. Charged for carry-on Charged for water and sodas Plane was dirty"
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: "everything was good"
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: "THERE IS NO FREE CHECK BAGS, I HAD TO PAY FOR 2 CHECKED BAGS BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY ARE TOO BIG TO BE CARRY ON. NO FREE BEVERAGE OR SNACKS FOR THE FLIGHT AND EVEN WHEN I ASKED FOR HOT WATER FOR MY BABIES MILK, THEY SAID I WOULD HAVE TO PURCHASE SOMETHING FIRST BEFORE GIVING ME HOT WATER! WHEN I ASKED TO BORROW A PEN THEY ALSO WANTED ME TO PAY FOR THE PEN! MOST RIDICULOUS AIRLINE I HAVE EVER RODE IN. NEVER AGAIN."
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."
Cons: "I don't like the two times charging of check-in baggage. One charge for each way rather than doing a discounted roundtrip charge given the fact the my ticket was a roundtrip one."
Cons: "4 hr flight delay and 1 1/2 hour on the Tarmac before takeoff! On a 1 hour flight what's there to like."
Pros: "Staff at the Manila Airport were extremely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My flight departed 3 hours late from Manila. There was only a couple centimetres to spare between my knees and the seat in front of me. I am glad the flight was only 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "That we actually made it to Manila on the right day... Just It's was over 6hours in the airport with little to no information about further delays"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and the pilot gave good updates. Leather seats."

Pros: "On line check in was awesome. Was able to avoid long queues. Smooth flight. We arrived earlier than scheduled. Friendly staff."
Pros: "I got a call a few weeks ahead to say my flight time had been changed to a half hour ahead of schedule. That was nice for a heads up."
Cons: "However, it's a good thing we arrived at the airport 4 hours in advance (had nothing else to do...) because our flight was actually 2 hours ahead of schedule. Also, we sat on the tarmac for an hour. This was to be expected though, because it's manila."
