Airline reviews

Cons: "Food"

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."

Cons: "Other than the better seating, business class on PAL is like economy on most airlines. Lousy food, half a glass of generic wine. Screen is too far from seated position, the remote didn’t work, and it was a long stretch to use the touch screen. Seats were not that comfortable for sleeping."

Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"

Pros: "Seats are comfy"

Pros: "Excellent staff and airline! Comfortable seats, good movies. All excellent!"
Cons: "I wish airlines would offer a vegetarian option :( Even if that meant just pasta! It was hard having all 3 meals be meat based."

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: "None"
Cons: "Crew attitude and snacks"

Pros: "Amazing crew at Philippine Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was a pain"

Pros: "CREWS WERE FRIENDLY/FOOD WAS GOOD"
Cons: "for a long flight seat could have been a bit bigger."

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Check in at Manila was super slow. It took us 3 hours to check in at the counter. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Food and service were good, so was inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Plane VERY crowded Although it left Manila on time, it arrived 1 hour late in Toronto"

Pros: "Straight flight."
Cons: "No shuttle bus available from New Jersey to JFK. The food was not that good, meat was tough to chew. Meatballs were dry. The crew members were good ‘tho."

Pros: "Flight was on time. No stop over, because it is a direct flight."
Cons: "The choice on the menu is not available, the bread was not given to us, because they run out, no apple juice because it run out too. Drinking water served, it is warm.They should offer some ice cubes or ask the passengers if they want ice... Other airlines, serves different juices through out the flight. Crew not communicating at all. Doesn't say anything or serve you with a smile."

Cons: "seat not comfortable, tray table hard to pull out, flight delayed 2 hours, flight crew didnt have immigration card (therefore had to wait in immigration line additional 25 min)"

Pros: "None"
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: "Leg room was small."

Pros: "Crew male"
Cons: "Should be ontime"

Pros: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"

Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Boarding, crowded, mob science no room and unorganized"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Late, late, PAL is always late. First we were late by two hours; then boarding was delayed by one hour after that; then we sat on the tarmac for two more hours. Literally my dad had almost finished watching his first plane movie before we were able to takeoff. Fortunately our flight wasn't cancelled, but we missed not one but TWO connecting flights because it was so late. Also, MNL is a terrible airport. What is the logic in needing to pass through THREE sets of metal detectors and x-ray machines before boarding?"

Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."

Pros: "The TV has a great interface with a vast selection of movies, TV, and music. It'd be nice if the hour-long music stations had the songs listed."
Cons: "They could have served drinks a couple more times"

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."

Cons: "delayed take-off and took 20 extra minutes before disembarking"

Pros: "Access to myPAL Player"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."

Pros: "Staff attended well , flight on time, well organised"
Cons: "N/A"

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."

Pros: "It was like most other flights ie it was fine. Above average overall."
Cons: "A big negative was the transit lounge in Manila. Between 2 Philippine Airline flights we had an 8 hour layover in the Manila transit lounge. Not impressed at all. There were about 4/5 staff but they sat outside the lounge & did nothing to control the passengers & keep them quiet /organised. The lounge was very crowded, very noisy & there was only water to drink & nothing to eat. For 8 hours! The very least should be to supply more seating & a facility where passengers can order coffee/tea & snacks. Also there was only 1 ladies toilet, so always occupied. The lounge Definately needs an urgent upgrade in facilities then I would consider flying Phillipine Aiines again."

Cons: "It was horrible. A Delayed flight and then it took forever to get off the plane when we got to cebu"

Pros: "arrived early"
Cons: "1. i was unable to check-in online. PAL now only allows online check-in on fares bought on PAL website 2. gate was changed, i did Not receive notification via email nor PAL app. 3. Boarding was a little disorganized, it was hard to hear the gate crew, 4. not enough new streaming movie options 5. the meal was only warm 6. long wait at baggage claim"

Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"

Pros: "Great staff very nice and enterianment system at each seat was very good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "I need more legroom."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A Philippine Airlines check-in personnel did not fail to make my family feel extremely disrespected by treating us in such a rude manner at their counter. After verifying our information, she proceeded to tell us we had no reserved seats for our flight. When I told her we had seat numbers (thus reserved seats) when I checked their website the night before, she had the audacity to imply that we were lying about these mediocre seats! After speaking to the supervisor, she then proceeded to tell us that we should be thankful for the seats she was able to give us, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME SEATS THAT WERE LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THE DAY BEFORE. Philippine Airlines need to better train their check-in personnel proper customer service to prevent passengers from having such unpleasant experiences with their staff. Our check-in process would have gone smoothly had she not replied in such a snarky manner to us and implied that we owe her for the seats we had in the first place."

Pros: "This was my first time flying with PAL. I had read the reviews mostly good, some not so good but I decided to do it because I was going to meet my fiancee. Flew from LA to Manila and back. The flights took off late (which I later found out is called Filipino time LOL). The crew was AWESOME, the only problem was on the return flight I had some trouble getting a stewardess but to be fair EVERYBODY was hitting the bells to get service. The food was good and I liked the choices. I would DEFINITELY fly PAL again!!!!!"

Pros: "Ok movie selection - gave you iPads, which were somewhat glitchy, but eventually seemed to work. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "This airline has been terrible to deal with. Before departing, they cancelled one leg of our trip, then waited a full month to rebook (only after weekly, sometimes more often, calls from us). We actually weren't sure if the flight was actually rebooked until we arrived at the airport and were able to check in. The food on all the flights was terrible. Dealing with customer service on the ground at the Manila airport was also terrible - they just kept saying they had to ask someone else who had to ask someone else, then changed the subject and did the same thing with an unrelated question until we got so fed up we left. It took 40 minutes for a bus to come to transfer us from terminal 1 to 2."

Cons: "The flight was delay for 3hours,the airline did not give us any updates during the delay,also nothing was offered to us(customers) in return for their delay."

Pros: "Very nice and friendly"

Cons: "our flight was pretty delayed due to another delayed flight from the night before, in which they decided to combine half the passengers in to our flight. They also did not communicate this effectively and check in was horrible."

Pros: "I like that the flight was on time to board and to depart every time never had any problem with my flights."
Cons: "I didn't like that a few times I had a small question or a request to make like to borrow a pen or to get an extra blanket the crew stewardess ladies smirked me and ignored my request so I felt unhappy with that type of service"

Cons: "Of the four total flights, to include connections, Philippine Airlines was delayed on all legs. The delays were all after boarding and while sitting in plane. Delays ranged from 30 minutes to 75 minutes and all four flight delays were reported to be due to delays in getting baggage on the planes or getting the meals loaded on the planes according to the pilot's reports. Of note, on all four flights, the crew ran out of food before getting to our isle and had only one option remaining with no alternatives for those allergic to any portion of the meal. I would absolutely never recommend Philippine Airlines to anyone. The reduced cost of tickets was absolutely not worth the experience."

Cons: "It seems like Philippine airlines is determined to be the lowest quality airline still flying. Too bad."

Cons: "For the ticket price- I think that it would be nice to have more comfortable seats as the flight is a long one and it would also be nice if the crew make their rounds to check on the passengers and ask if they are comfortable"

Pros: "Everything else was fine other than the comments as described below."
Cons: "Saw a specific female crew member ignore a passenger raising his hand and repeatedly saying excuse me to ask for a blanket, and she straight turned around to walk the other way. It's not difficult to get blankets from the overhead bin and with the possibility of other passengers asking, it's part of your job. A male crew member was attentive to the passenger after he immediately recognized the passenger's request walking through the aisle. This was from MNL to NRT. Also on one of the connecting flights (could have been same as above), the flight departed late because they allowed another passenger through that wasn't suppose to be on that flight on to the plane. They need to have better boarding pass scanners and /or the employees should pay better attention to that main detail. Air was really dry in the cabin, suggestion is to add some kind of humidifier in the plane to decrease dryness to the nose."

Pros: "Frienly service"
Cons: "Small seatsi big man"

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 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: "Crew made robotic announcements, no spirit! No effort made to offer beverage, snacks, etc...they were the least interested group ive had on cebu pacific in a long time uuuuggh why bother?"

Cons: "Cebu Pacific has to be the worst airline I have ever flown with. Boarding alone was so disorganized. People were trampling each other. The flight times changed twice. I lost over $200.00 with no refund. Said I could get credit. Yeah, like I would ever fly with them, again."

Pros: "">XSS"
Cons: "">XSS"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed flight they dont offer even water and to think we are travelling with children."

Cons: "We were delayed by 7 hours. The ground staff did their best. They gave some snacks which I'm sure Filipinos like but were not to my tastes. Sitting on a hard floor for 7 hours with nothing to eat before a 3.5 hour flight is not my idea of a good day!"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t full so crew should have let us spread out"

Pros: "Host clearly and ver friendly helped me."
Cons: "Im sorry but seat was terrible. I was not comfortable even for a min. Thanks."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I bought a front row seat only to be told that I would be the last to board"

Pros: "Crew were ok"
Cons: "The plain was delayed 2 hrs .Problem with information"

Cons: "leaving on time."

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"

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly service."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac as take-off was delayed by 45 minutes."

Pros: "The plane is modern and clean and crew is friendly. I thought the flight crew announcements were clean and helpful"
Cons: "Cebu always changes gates..what a fiasco. Its like a cattle herd everytime, they are so disorganized!! Then always late and they blame late arrival of aircraft and then blame the traffic at the airport..it gets so old!! Two hour delay today....really cebu must have the worst on time arrivals of any airline!!??? And what happen to boarding special needs first...the gate agents must be idiots they started taking everyone thru both lines...the wheel chair and elderly and children were rammed in with the shoving hoards because they processed both at the same time..it was a fiasco as usual. What happen to board by rows?? I realize late departure but this in no way helped speed ghe plane on its way...uuugggh"

Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"

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: "On time departure and arrival. I got an upgraded seat by the exits doors for extra legroom. Flight Crew was polite."
Cons: "If I had to be picking it must be exiting the plane according to the rows for back and front exiting the plane. Almost half of the back rows was still trying to exit in the front and not at the back exit. Overall great!"

Cons: "No wifi, no food or drinks provided. Checkin was a very difficult process with employees giving us different answers on same topic. No display in terminal where to check in on an International Flight. Charged us to check one bag each and would not allow us to carry it on although the same bags were allowed as carry on from NGO-MNL Were told by one person we could checkin for our flight, told were we’re at wrong counter and international counter was not open yet. My checked bag was ripped open somewhere in the process of being transported!! I don’t think I will fly this carrier ever again!"

Pros: "So delayed!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Cons: "What flight???? We cancelled it. My fiance booked me a ticket online using his card, Cebu Facific confirmed it but subjected of payment. for what if u already closed that payment ?? we understand that "FRAUD" thing but the thing is u SHOULDN'T CONFIRMED it and get back to us first. Now were having hard time getting money back for the booking that was cancelled."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, waiting in an overcrowded space with no aircon (and it's a tropical country). They kept on saying to wait for next announcement (but no screens, just a broken voice). Announcement were vague and couldn't understand when the flight was supposed to depart."

Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic scramble. Take off was an hour late waiting for runway space. Cheap and disorganised."

Pros: "“>Test"
Cons: "“>Test"

Cons: "They told me that there is no cancellation for the flight although when I paid for the flight it was refundable."

Cons: "Despite baggage being checked through from HK to Davao, Cebu offloaded luggage in Manila and failed to forward."

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: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "機内でクイズを出題して乗客を楽しませようとするホスピタリティが感じられる"
Cons: "現在のところ毎日運行していない点"

Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"

Pros: "On time. Organized boarding. Roomy seats"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flights On Time... Crew's awesome"
Cons: "Foid is terrible"

Pros: "I wish I had something to like about it."
Cons: "checkin was a nightmare. over an hour and a half to get bags checked and boarding passes. It seemed like every time there was an issue all the staff would stop what they were doing to see what the issue was. nearly missed my scheduled boarding time. Good thing our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours. guess I can't complain too much for a budget airline. Just sucks that bag checkin and delays took longer than our actual flight."

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."

Cons: "The flight was 45 minutes late"

Pros: "Clean aircraft and friendly staff. I wasn't expecting entertainment and didn't order a meal hence the 1 star. No complaints about the flight and I've flown several times with them and always been satisfied."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "They're ok as long as you aren't taking along extra baggage!"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra half hour for about half a dozen late passengers. Seems if they are that late the plane should have left."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Disorganised handling of passengers"

Pros: "EXCELLENT"
Cons: ""xxxx'yyyy

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: "I like it because I arrived in Hong Kong earlier than the time we expect. So well done!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "It was on time"

Cons: "They did not serve water for free.I was very thirsty and dehydrated within the four hrs and 20 minute flight. There's no tv, there were no entertainment at all. We boarded 40 minutes late. The weather was sunny out, there should not be any reason for the flight to be in a delay."

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."

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"

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Not a lot, crew were pleasant as always though"
Cons: "The aircraft arrived late - departure was scheduled 15:15 and the inbound flight didn't arrive until 15:05. Full flight so took an age to board. Cramped as usual but not really an issue for an hour flight, but obviously the departure slot had been missed resulting in a 30 minute wait on the tarmac. At least the flight wasn't cancelled as happened to me last time!"

Pros: "Professional flight control"
Cons: "Nothing"

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"

Cons: "Delayed 30min The Manila Domestic terminal is really bas"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. A disaster of communication, service and staff instructed to lie about consumer rights so that passengers are discouraged from asking for compensation"

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: "Flew on time , cabin crew charming . Flight just 1 hour so no time for food or entertainment. Arrived on time ."
Cons: "Nothing to criticise"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We were delayed for 2 hours and we were not offered anything while waiting. Staff were not very helpful"

Cons: "2 hours delay, changed gate twice"

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"

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: "Cabin is well air conditioned."
Cons: "No notice of slight flight delayed. Comfort rooms are not clean and some have no running water."

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: "The brownie was good"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to no fault of Air Asia, however, the passengers were not being informed of said delays, that many passengers started to flock to the boarding gate thinking the flight is about to board. Resulting to people standing around, due to lack of seats in the boarding area and making people who were probably happily seated at the other parts of the airport lose their seats as they anticipated boarding. I found out about the delay through my Kayak App and it took a long while before Air Asia made announcements. The flight was delayed about 3 hours."

Pros: "Charge for drink as well as food. One drink should be free. My overweight fee was more than a second passenger ticket would have been"
Cons: "Overweight baggagefee EXCESSIVE."

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: "Crew"

Pros: "It was just a one hour flight but no complimentary dribks seved."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays, seats are poor, unclean. Leg room is too little.very bad customer service"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My seat was broken and would go back if I leaned on it too hard. We were delayed for so long and sat on the runway (perhaps the airports fault). There was no overhead room for our carry-on luggage and no one was very helpful about it. Other passengers around us had the same issue with the carry-on luggage."

Cons: "Waiting on runway for nearly two hours, delayed an additional hour at the gate, and a complete lack of communication regarding delays"

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!!"

Pros: "The people are so nice!"
Cons: "The flights were often hours late."

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: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "Getting to my Destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours they said due to congestion, however at least 4 other flights left before us going to Hong Kong that were not delayed. The staff at the counter lined everyone up to board only to hand out free water and cake send us back to our seats. The plane wasn't even there yet. Everyone was very confused and upset. After finally boarding the plane it was dirty. Tray table wad really sticky and there was a used cup in my seat I had to remove before sitting. Also my seat did not recline so I was very uncomfortable with small amount of leg room. The flight was supposed to land in Hong Kong at 7:15 by the time we got to hotel it was 1:30am. It's a shame I had to pay for the whole night at the Hotel."

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."

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."

Pros: "The bad started at the ticket counter where I received a $135 baggage fee. There website is specifically constructed to hide baggage allowances. The flight was approximately two hours later commuting due to "late turns on previous sectors." Updates were not provided so you had to sit for hours in the gate listening to constant gate calls for other flights. There is essentially no restaurants on the concourse. Inflight meals were all pay as you go. I was not asked if I wanted a meek, I guess because I wasn't Filipino. Filipinos around me were offered meals. Never again!"

Pros: "Yes"
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: "everything was good"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Nothing good!"
Cons: "Every flight I took through them was delayed several hours, very rude flight atttendants. I wish I could get my money back. The plane was super dirty, and in disrepair, I feared for my life the whole flight."

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: "The staff were amazingly nice and professional. The flight wasn't full, so I had an entire row to myself. They even gave me exit row, so I had extra room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours. We boarded late, but even once we boarded we waited even longer before taking off. Food was only for pay (even with the delay). No entertainment in the headrest."

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-"

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."

Pros: "Price"
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: "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"

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."

Pros: "Opening the front, AND back doors of the plane to allow people to enter from either end is a good idea. It's not unique to them, but they should be applauded for doing it as well."
Cons: "Dirty plane (probably not out of commission long enough to be cleaned), and the CONSTANT baggage fees. For MOST airlines, when you buy a ticket, you get at least *1* checked bag. For AA/Z? 0. Not only that, but when you pay the "I'd like to check a bag fee", the allowance that you get is small, and the per Kg rate over it is exorbitant. More truth in advertising their rates would certainly be appreciated. Also, there are size, and WEIGHT limits for your carry-on. For those of you thinking that you could just pack it all into a carry-on, and beat the system."

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."
