No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up.

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"

Cons: "Transfer process from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 in MNL."

Bathrooms are dirty. Not baby friendly. Food is poor quality. I didn’t get a drink during my meal. I had to flag a flight attendant down to get juice."
Cons: "Food quality"
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: "On time gate opening when landing"

Cons: "flight was delayed by 1hr 13mins."

Cons: "Everything is perfect for me."
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: "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: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, movie and tv options were great."
Cons: "I appreciated that I was given a gluten free meal but one side was hot and the other side was slightly cold still. I am not sure how that could be possible, but it was my experience on that flight."
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."
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: "i like d plane used. its 330 wd new biz class lie flat seats."
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: "Check in counter ground staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Boarding gates have too many flights assigned to it making waiting area very crowded. Toilets are too far. Flight attendants could be more helpful to passengers with infants and small children."
Cons: "Smooth flight and friendly crews."
Pros: "The flight was underbooked so I had a row to myself. That always makes a happy flight."
Pros: "All good. New plane, pleasant staff, on timr"
Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth. Take-off and landing likewise."
Cons: "The barbecue chicken supposedly from Aristocrat was served with hardly any sauce so it was dry and needless to say, disappointing..I just ate it just to fill up my stomach. I was looking for the music selections in the inflight magazine to help me choose the station but didn't see anything listed. The aisle of the Airbus 320 is quite narrow so it is difficult to pass the aisle w/out bumping into seats."
Pros: "Staff attended well , flight on time, well organised"
Pros: "Very good and confortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing to refer."
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."
Pros: "This time the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "I was updated ahead of time about the status of my flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."
Cons: "Put us on separate seat...we should seating close"
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."
Pros: "staff were really nice. the lounge kinda sucks but at least it exists."
Cons: "no wifi, connection in manila airport. manila airport is the worst experience in the world. limited wifi to 2 hours. one of the staff in the lounge kept touching me and making weird eye and lip guestures at me and felt really uncomfortable. i complained to the ground staff."
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: "delayed, unsatisfying service"
Pros: "the crew and food were both good."
Cons: "too much much delay , the were delay at every stop over"
Pros: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."
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."
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: "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: "We arrived safe. And they had movies."
Cons: "Terrible, terrible experience. We were weather delayed. Fine. Very inconvenient but have to accept it. However, THEY LOST MY LUGGAGE!!! The worse part was that they acted like no big deal, it happens all the time. And THAT is why I will never ever recommend PAL to anyone. It took them 4 days to get my luggage to me. No compensation whatsoever for their incompetence in arranging my luggage to fly along with me. They should refund 25% of the flight since they only delivered me, and not my luggage."
Pros: "Quickest flight available"
Cons: "Philippine Airlines food is bland and very soggy"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and quick."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but the beer wasn't cold. Then the plane became painfully cold during the flight."
Cons: "They should have allowed my wife to board and the. Sent her bags on next flight instead of having to rebook a whole new ticket for next day"
Pros: "The boarding was organized"
Cons: "Free snacks?"
Pros: "Yes, the crews were super. They keep entertaining us the customers. Thanks guys"
Cons: "Seats do not recline"
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."
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: "All is helpful"
Cons: "Make the plane clean..."
Pros: "Price and convenient"
Cons: "Service and flight comfort"
Pros: "Since I checked In early, they let me in on an earlier flight. Thanks!"
Pros: "check in went smoothly and boarding was orderly. The flight departed on time and arrived in Singapore on schedule.The flight deck kept us well informed and the cabin crew were very helpful, willing and able to keep the passengers happy."
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"
Pros: "cheap flight"
Cons: "delayed flight by almost 1 hour. no discipline officer to impose noisy and disturbing co-passengers"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, landed ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too cold!!"
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"
Cons: "Why do we have to pay for the smallest snacks? On a 4 hour flight??"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"
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!"
Cons: "More than 1 hr. delayed flyt"
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."
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."
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."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"
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: "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."
Cons: "The flight was 45 minutes late"
Pros: "Affordable price"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
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."
Pros: "The entire process was a breeze"
Pros: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight twice. But still late."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
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."
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: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Long queue"
Pros: "Crew is efficient as always."
Cons: "I don't remember being asked to purchase baggage fees. I don't remember how much baggage was allowed. All of our bags were weighed together, even though we had small backpacks and should have been considered as personal item. We ended up paying more than $100 for baggage fees! Also, even water is for purchase. I don't think it was even put in fine print. Entertainment is non existent."
Pros: "It was on time. Seat comfort was good."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, and no water."
Pros: "Crew were nice seats are a bit small for a standard person like me.my knees can touch the seat infront."
Cons: "I was a bit under one kilo heavy and they made me check in my bag and pay 50 sgd. It felt like a scam to increase revenue for the airline. I traveled with the same stuff, but only the Manila crew flagged me on my return flight"
Cons: "No water No legroom Bad seats Old plane"
Pros: "They didn’t weigh my carry-on at check-in. Boarding was rear-to-front. Toilets were clean."
Cons: "Seat pitch quite narrow."
Cons: "Food can be included in the payment."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Checkin lines were long"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight overall was delayed. Before we boarded, everyone's bags were unnecessarily searched (why is that necessary when we went through security already?)."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant. Nice waiting area at Manila International Terminal 1."
Cons: "1 hour delay. No vegetarian food offered. No Customs card offered for travellers to fill in."
Pros: "I liked the seats and new 320 flight. Flight attendants and check in personal doing their best."
Cons: "Nevertheless I NEVER AGAIN fly Jet Star due to needy greedy prices and ectra! extra! extra! and discussions with check in personnel, which is unfair to them."
Cons: "Jetstar refuses to inform its customers about any upcoming flight delays. People waiting to pick you up: bad luck. Meetings planned after arrival: bad luck. Just sit, shut up and wait until they think the time is right to start boarding, usually an hour after scheduled department time (at least on this trip in both directions). Your ground staff is a total disaster, no matter how much your flight attendants will smile during the flight, they can't compensate for your pre-boarding mess."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked! Never made the flight. Got offloaded!"
Cons: "Not a heap of leg room but is Jetstar and only a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Fast Check In and Boarding"
Cons: "Old Aircrafe Totally no Service"
Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness of the flight"
Cons: "Food and Drinks Menu Pricing"
Pros: "Friendly crew, food actually very good"
Cons: "Aircraft not clean, several seats with trash when we boarded! Seats to close to each other, no space for legs for anyone 1.70 plus"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "The boarding was non sense when inviting passangers from the particular rows. People were not given enough time to qeue in so that it actually didn’t matter where you sit coz it only caused chaos. The seats in the plane were ripped and would definitely require some maintanance. It was a late flight and the cabine crew seemed to have enough for that date so that the only smile you could get was when saying goodbye. However, they did the job in a proffessional manner."
Cons: "No refund oferred for my error"
Cons: "No cancellation refund for my error"
Pros: "The service of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Keito and Viviene were great. They let me disembark first so I can catch my connecting flight from SG."
Pros: "It was on time and efficient. All staff very helpful."
Cons: "Hidden baggage fees and lost our luggage"
Pros: "Stewardesses served well."
Cons: "Leg room is too tight!"
Pros: "I was impressed"
Cons: "Load from the back, but let the people in the back load the bins in the front with their bags."
Pros: "The flight board on time"
Cons: "The airport didn't show the gate correctly. When the passenger ask the airport staff also don't know everything. My goodness."
Pros: "crew members were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "flight was delayed but it was okay."
Cons: "Would not recommend using them since they don't care if you were impacted by the Typhoon even if other airlines make changes to waive change fees."
Pros: "Service in the overall was great."
Cons: "Nothing, it all was perfect."
Cons: "You have to be consistent in your rule implementation because sometimes you dont even care about the handcarry bag. Just for a kilo of excess baggage you demand to pay for a the minimum upgrade. It is better to book major airline then since if you add all the must buy, the price is at par with them."
Pros: "The crew was very diverse. They were multilingual. My flight was also on time. It was only delayed because of the busy runway schedule."
Cons: "Just like any other LCC, you get what you paid for. The aircon in the plane was freezing! Haha I don't know why they changed their 10kgs baggage allowance for hand carry items to just 7kgs. Maybe it's only applicable in the Phils."
Cons: "does not allow even small iPods or iPhones in airplane mode use during take offs and landings. i can understand take offs, since they want us to hear the same seat belts and exits speech over and over. but for landings? no other airline is like this."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "The seat was terrible, looks like old airplane. No entertainment system. This is really a budget flight."
Pros: "Airfare very reasonable but there are so many hidden fees if one is a first timer using Jetstar."
Cons: "Not ordering meal in advance water cost that much not included in the meal."
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage even after purchasing the 20kg allowance separately online and baggage total weight under 20kg."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, but not severely. Fortunately, there was enough time in between connecting flights."
Cons: "So I didn't know that Qantas on the weekend makes you pay for wine/-alcohol when you fly on weekends. Doesn't matter if you pay a lot of money, you get budget airline treatment."
Cons: "The seats were very tight."
Pros: "1. I was lucky enough to get the row to myself. 2. Timely departure out of MNL which is rare"
Cons: "1. Long line and wait at the check-in counter. 2. Inconsistent enforcement of carry-on weight restriction. I noticed many other passengers with heavy carry-ons boarding. 3. Extremely cramped seat. 4. The seat had strange stains."
Pros: "Food was OK."
Cons: "Seats were tight, even for a budget airline."
Pros: "The service was very bad especially when I checked in my luggages. They have changed me 13400 bat Thailand for the lugged and when I checked the bill when I left. She gave me two bills only and nothing else. We were three she charged us 13400 bat why is that. We have lugged for me 2 luggages total weight 28.8 kg. Plus 15.6 kg for my friend and 20 kg for the third ticket. Why is that?"
