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: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Seats are too Small"
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: "on time."
Cons: "seat spacing/legroom too small. food sucks."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Direct flight to Los Angeles is convenient. Overall the flight crew was hospitable. The food was enjoyable and they keep restrooms clean"
Cons: "Terminal 2 at the Manila International Airport is aweful. The redundancy of screening at the gate is laughable. The terminal is too warm and there are not nearly enough seating for everyone at every gate I viewed. This experience alone may influence future use of Philippine Airlines. The flight attendant who served my section never smiled. I was suprised she is entrusted with serving passengers."
Pros: "The prompt boarding and courteous staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time..staff was courteous"
Cons: "Good was ok"
Pros: "YOU NEED TO ADVISE PASSENGERS TO BRING WARM CLOTHING BECAUSE THE PLANE WAS VERY COLD DURING FLIGHT. I NEEDED TWO BLANKETS"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. At least this time they sent me a notification via email. On the flight from SFO to Manila, the flight was cancelled and we had to be reaccommodated the next day and I wasn't even notified that that was going to happen."
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!!!!!"
Cons: "It was several hours delayed, they finally boarded us, then told us they were closing the airport. They kept us on the place for another 2.5 hours while they were trying to figure out what to do. By time they let us off the plane it was 3:30 AM. Took another 2.5 hours to get our baggage back and another 1.5 hours to get the flight refunded. I travel weekly, and this has been the worst airline experience I have had so far."
Pros: "The flight was late. Then, after we boarded d at around 1AM, we were advised that the runways were due to close at 1:30 AM and negotiations were underway to extend runway operations so we could take off. We waited on the plane only to later learn that the flight was cancelled and we had to deplane! After more waiting at the gate in the terminal we were to hotels. We went to bed at around 4:45 AM, only to get a wake up call at 7 AM whilst we were not leaving the hotel until 11:00 AM for a 1:30 PM departure! Horrible! We ended up leaving even later, at around 2:30 PM. Throughout, communication from the company was abysmal. Never again Philippine Airlines for me !"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I could really feel the heart of the Filipino"
Pros: "I liked the service , the friendliest crew, quick ease for boarding"
Cons: "Food was not that good. They could have done better in that department. I've had better airline food. Needs work there."

Cons: "My attendant Anesha Juan PR 112 June 5 11:30 am Manila to Los Angeles was too slow and 3x , food were gone when it's my turn to receive. Due to her slowness , other crew/attendant got other trays of foods from her cart and have it to the other side . I didn't eat breakfast because I am unhappy with the way she work."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Very nice and friendly"
Pros: "the seats were comfortable and the staff was very nice"
Cons: "i was business class and had to wait to board for 60 (YES SIXTY) passengers in wheelchairs to board first. And most of those people were ambulating fine before and after. I believe they should have a doctors note. Apparently this is the norm with this airline in Manilla."
Pros: "I like that the plane was not very full and I had no seatmate beside me. The staff were attentive to the needs of the passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses, transferring."
Cons: "Like all four of my flights on Philippines Airlines, over 3 hour delay. They could not leave on time on any flights, over head speaker in terminal was just constant flight being delayed-significantly. Hawaii to Manila and back, you had to down load an app onto your phone prior to leaving for any in flight entertainment, on your phone only. Terrible food. This was my worst flying experience ever and I do 4 international trips a year. Save time and money, fly another airline even if it means a connecting flight, you will still get there quicker. Pathetic."
Cons: "All four of my flight on Philippines Airlines were over 3 hours delayed. Nothing good about this airline. Horrible food. But the delays were beyond the pale. Do not fly this airline and if you have to, don't have a connecting flight the same day, you WILL NOT make it."
Pros: "flight update via email"
Cons: "late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly"
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: "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: "Quickest flight available"
Cons: "Philippine Airlines food is bland and very soggy"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "No entertainment. Boarding was slow and inefficient. Lack of information on the delay at airport. No notification on change of gate."
Pros: "Excellent service and nice people"
Cons: "They left my luggage behind. But I got it back the next day on the first flight out at no expense. The flight was slightly delayed - no fault to PAL, just a couple of super-late passengers."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be cleaner."
Cons: "Creaky seats in business class, below average selection of inflight movies and food that was substandard. This was a very oddly configured A330 with the seats in business way too close to each other. Every time they make an announcement you have to deselect whatever you were watching again."
Pros: "Economy seats arent different from other airlines. Flight was good in general"
Cons: "Transfer desk was hard to find for first timers. Send "ask me" staffs to greet on arrival for connecting passengers or info board will help."
Pros: "This flight nothign"
Cons: "Major delay, should have offered passengers water or beverages. Food was very poor, no assistance for transfer on late flight."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "But the flight left and arrived 30 minn late!"
Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was an excellent experience The seats were so comfortable as well, and the customer service on and off the plane was amazing"
Pros: "Everimg went smoothly, from check in to boarding and flight. The ground and flight crew were helpful."
Cons: "Nothing for this trip"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant, the staff were delightful, and the plane (a new 737-800) was very comfortably configured."
Cons: "Check-in took an intolerably long time (45 minutes)."
Pros: "Crew on board did their best."
Cons: "Because of an accident at Manila, all flights were delayed. This can happen, but the information provided by ground staff was far below standard. I assume they have procedures in place to inform passengers, and to make any estimations and guidance on what to do next. Absolutely no courtesy for passengers with connecting flights with different airliners. Usually, MH is a professional organisation, but this was an all time low in their service. Sorry."
Cons: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Fight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. . The food bland but warm. But the seats were microscopic"
Cons: "Seats were tiny. My knees pressed to seat in front of me. I’m 73 inches tall"
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate reflected on the boarding pass for the third time already. And to make it worse, this was the most difficult problem that me and my friends encountered throughout all the flights that we took. We nearly miss this flight as we actually went to the boarding gate that was reflected incorrectly on our boarding pass as stated earlier. There was also an unannounced delay. Flight estimated departure is at 1720HRS, but the flight only took off 1750HRS."
Pros: "Attendants were kind."
Cons: "Frequent delays to flight timings, and it was hard to find where the flight gate was as I couldn't find one on the screen. It was a little bit crowded. No food was given (probably because it's only 50mins flight but I wished there were snacks or drinks given for us)"
Cons: "Prebooking a seat with Malaysian Airlines requires calling KL office which is always busy. It costs a lot if calling from the US, in addition to paying for the seats. It really turned me off."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating enough to provide for us during this cancelled flight."
Cons: "Better and open communications with what's going on. They were helpful and efficient but needed a clearer and more concise communication line to get us mobilized and ready to go."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "One of our luggage was delayed during transit."
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Cons: "The boarding process from at Langkawi airport could have been better if more staff are to deploy to do the processing.As the que is not in one line, it could create misunderstanding among other passengers."
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "Quick on and off boarding."
Cons: "Food was average at best."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Forced to check a carry-on used all over the world for years. Then they lose it"
Cons: "Losing my luggage"
Pros: "the staff were pleasant"
Cons: "the food was ok as I like spicy. But one mouthful of water and a small wine. soft drink, etc was not enough on a 4 hour flight. Leg room was very bad. I am average hight 5 ft 10 inch but could only sit sideways aas not enough room"
Cons: "I wasn't aware I was in Malaysian airline, I thought it was silk just as it was when I arrived... could of been a little clearer but other then that everything was great"
Pros: "Malaysian airlines airport crew at least tried to get us back to Singapore."
Cons: "Malaysian airlines did not offer us any incentives or better seats after removing us from our flight. We were seated separately and all in the middle row."
Pros: "Despite recent tragedies that led to loss of life and aircraft, the flag carrier of Malaysia seems to be well on the road back to good health and prosperity. This is a win-win situation all 'round. From being re-booked to an earlier flight by their impressive ground staff to excellent in-flight service and airmanship during the ride, the experience was truly one of the nicest airline experiences in recent memory. With improvements at MNL coupled with this fine experience, I now have another option to choose from when traveling by air both within SEA and beyond. Kudos to all."
Cons: "Though not MH's fault, having to queue for nearly 2 hours at KLIA to clear immigration formalities was an extremely rude welcome back here, considering that it took me less than 30 minutes in June to clear formalities at the "Budget Terminal.""
Cons: "They damaged MY OVER 400 Euro suitcase handle and said that they dont take any responsibility!!!"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad landing,"
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."
Pros: "Flight was on time - to the detriment of my late connecting MAS flight from DAR"
Cons: "Food was okay but entertainment was non existent"
Pros: "Flight to Penang was delayed for more than 3 hours for unclear reasons. These was not a clear announcement as to what was going on. Then after that, they were waiting on the crew from Langkawi. We arrived at 2 a.m. or so as a resluy"
Cons: "Lateness and lack of transparency from MAS staff"
Cons: "The quality of the in-flight meal (noodles and fish) very poor!"
Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."
Pros: "Massage chair, very relaxing for long hour journey"
Pros: "Efficient check in"
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff"
Pros: "Prompt and great service."
Cons: "Two hour in late and still waiting for boarding. Awful experience..."
Cons: "Crew Service is horrible. They get angry very easily."
Cons: "Seats feel super cramped"
Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."
Pros: "We missed our flight connection in KL due entirely to our fault. M-Air staff helped us get onto the next flight. Economy was full so we paid for an upgrade to business class but we were seated in first class. Wonderful crew, service, cabin and flight."
Pros: "Crew was good in flight."
Cons: "The flight was excessively delayed. What was supposed to be a flight leaving at 2:25 AM left only at 4:15 AM or so. This is AFTER my original flight which I had booked for 1 AM was changed to 2:25 AM."
Pros: "The ice cream is a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "prepacked juice. Could be more option."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Cabin crew was courteous. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "More thought should be given to the snack offering as it was heavily sugar laden. Flight was delayed by almost an hour to accommodate 1 family."
Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"
Cons: "Need to cleanup the cabin."
Cons: "GROUND STAFF LETTING ME CHECK IN AS I HAD NO BAGS AND WAS GIVEN HALF HOUR TO GET ACROSS 4 TERMINALS TO MAKE FLIGHT. MISSED BY 5 MINUTES AND GROUND STAFF VERY UNACCOMODATING"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Nothing. It's cheap and really not because you pay for everything extra."
Cons: "Rude customer service. Baggage cost more than the flight."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "Self-service boarding didn't work fully, causing some delay for my wife even though everything was in order. The flight was delayed and no over-the-air announcement or explanation or apology was given."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "provide accesible wifi"
Pros: "good budget airline."
Cons: "seats are very close, legroom is uncomfortable"
Pros: "The new seats are good. I didn't get any back pain."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "Very understanding and helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Such a poor on time record"
Cons: "Luggage check-in weighs luggage 22 kilos more than its actual weight and I was asked to pay almost RM650 ~ ($170), when I was asked to recheck they had to pull my luggage back and that took almost 40 minutes to later know that they made a huge mistake! 20 minutes to the boarding time I got confirmation that my luggage weights are correct and given a boarding pass to gate P11. walked to gate P11 and saw no one there, and there were no signs of what was happening, I checked Kayak app then I noticed that they changed the gate to L10 which is a totally different building ( 16 minutes before gate closure ), I had to run the whole airport to go to gate L10. not to mention that flight was delayed by a good 1 hour!"
Pros: "Flight was v smooth"
Cons: "Lazy crew"
Pros: "The customer service representatives were very cordial"
Cons: "My bag was sent to Kuala Lumpur for no reason. I checked in with plenty of time and when I arrived in Singapore I was advised that not only could they not call to Panang to inquire about my bag -it had to be arranged through email but also bags aren’t destination scanned! I work for United airlines and it seems primitive not to know where a bag is in today’s day and age. The following day, knowing that I was departing back to the United States miraculously my bag showed up at the airport the same time as my minimum required check in time."
Pros: "On time both times. Ground staff especially very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing we didn’t really not like"
Pros: "This is now our airline of choice between KL and Singapore and the next time we fly to Australia we will try flying with Air Asia. It was a very short flight so entertainment was not provided, and we were perfectly happy with that. Very reasonable fare. All staff were charming and very helpful. Highly recommend."
Pros: "Captain address on delayed update and get free meal"
Cons: "Initialy no staff at gate to update the delay. Passenger left wondering. Luckly received alert from Kayak.com on the delay. Received sms at 9.05pm after 1 hour delay from Airasia."
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "convenient times"
Cons: "your machines i hate that you now employ less humans and more machines. no one wants to fly anywhere without humans in control"
Pros: "Short inexpensive fligh"
Cons: "Seat rows were very close & limited room."
Pros: "The aircraf was brand new"
Pros: "friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "delayed flights"
Pros: "The food is shockingly decent. Yeah you have to pay cash and it’s not convenient, but the food is edible and there is lots of variety."
Cons: "AirAsia sucks balls. Or at least, it was fine leaving Singapore, but returning from a crappy small town airport to it was a fraudulent nightmare. We were told to check in online and add baggage at least two days before flying to avoid excessive baggage fees. So we paid them the first time, no problem. But AirAsias website is clearly coded by bricks with fingers. Because 6,5,4, and 3 days prior, it says such service is unavailable. Okay, we’ll do it at the airport then, it’ll be nice and easy just like at Changi. Only at this crappy subpar excuse for an airport, they live by no rules and want to charge $300USD - more than double what was charged at Changi - for two 20kg bags. 20kg, which my boarding pass and my booking both say we are entitled to, is suddenly 5kg in excess, so they want to screw your American wallet hard, long, and good because even if you had a good time, chances are you will never pass through the half baked gas station that is Langkawi again. Oh yeah and don’t bother paying for the WiFi - they get you good there too - 10mb which is basically a couple jpegs but you won’t get squat anyway. Literally nothing, and then suddenly your puny 10mb has disappeared, along with your money and what’s left of AirAsias credibility."
Pros: "Efficient service & great crew"
Pros: "Being updated of the status of flight periodically"
Cons: "Airport was crowded. As many other flights were delayed too."
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Check in staff was trying to ensure me that hoping the cabin crew can help me changed seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. What's worst my 5 years old daughter have to be seperated from me. And instead of them asking the passengers to swap they'd expect me to solve their stuffed up. Not very impressed at all"
Pros: "Quick easy and simple. Staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Cons: "No a ala carte food available due to insufficient staff, no towel for shower and i need to use my own towel and carry the wet towel on the way back to Singapore, no hot water for shower, staff sitting down there to chit chat and a cleaner was preparing my lousy latte. Worst Plaza Premium Lounge experience!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. We missed our connecting flight and the next flight wouldn't be until the next day. Customer service was ridiculously slow."
Cons: "No attention to our needs. I booked a wheelchair for my mom from manila to bkk. No wheelchair was provided from malaysia to bkk. I even push my mom in manila airport coz they said they dont have enough staff. My mom had a stroke and she walked all the way in kuala lumpur. What a lousy airline you have"
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."
Cons: "Ground check in crew at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Azureen) was damn rude. I'm appalled with her customer service level. Rude and not helping at all. Worst Airport staff I've met so far."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I was charged over $200 for luggage overweight because I did not purchase it at time of booking. That's disgraceful. They should make it clear for people outside Asia who are not familiar with their policies what they should do to avoid these charges Jackie"
Pros: "Pilots made a great effort to cut down the delay, kudos to them."
Cons: "No organization whatsoever in boarding procedures. No announcement made on the flight being delayed, only a message passed down from passengers at the very front. Plane was not cleaned and emptied of rubbish before we were boarded. Most shocking of all, the plane was being refueled while passengers were boarding. All in all, pretty appalling. I take budget flights 2-3 times a year and this is the worst experience I've had with budget carriers (including the European budget carriers with dirt cheap fares and sometimes non-existence customer service)."
Cons: "They lost a passenger after the boarding pass was presented. Seems impossible but they managed it They charge you for luggage but only allow you 15 kilograms which is too little for a standard suitcase"
Pros: "Cabin crew were proactive, hard working and super friendly. Upgraded to "hot" seats at check in without charge. Wide range of food and beverages available despite being a short 1.5 hour flight. Aircrafts were clean and well maintained. Both flights landed either on time or early despite weather issues."
Cons: "Check in process, hidden fees, unworkable app for iPhone. I tried to use the app to check in and pay for a bag, it didn't allow me and I had to pay the much more expensive fee at the airport to check the bag. App in general didn't work well at all, it never showed the return leg journey so I couldn't make any amendments to the booking. Check in process took ages in Langkawi, only two desks open for all of AK's flights. None of the self service kiosks were working despite being advertised as functioning."
Cons: "All thing baaaaad"
Cons: "Not great seats for comfort"
Pros: "it was a very nice and clean plane."
Cons: "They dont give anything complimentary - not even drinks or water!"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Charged for everything . We paid $1.50 USD for a small cup of tea."
Pros: "All god no food"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "It was nice to see a vegetarian option on an in flight menu. The vegetarian curry was nice."
Cons: "We arrived a full 2 hours before our flight, as did many other people. Unfortunately, as they only had 2 people working at the check-in desk, we waited in line for over an hour to get checked in. Everyone was telling the staff that we were all at risk of missing our flight (as we still needed to clear security and immigration), however nothing changed. The girls behind the desk seemed genuinely flustered and sorry about the situation, but unfortunately no one else came to support. We made our flight by the skin of our teeth, but it seems that people in line behind us weren't so lucky."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Took 2 hours to check in. They charged me $130 to check one bag. Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Low price...friendly, courteous, helpful staff..."
Cons: "No free food or drink...not even water. Tightest seating I've ever experienced. No in flight entertainment. No alcohol available whatsoever. Chaotic boarding by passengers crawling all over one another reminds one of the clambering patrons at popular night markets. Considerable flutter and vibration in port side main flap. Excessive blow by of bleed air into cabin at start up (heavy jet fuel odor inside). Somewhat sketchy landing...but not too bad considering heavy crosswind combined with good old fashioned seat of the pants flying (no computer aided landing assists here). All in all a decent flight for around these parts I guess...I mean at least the thing wasn't brush painted with house paint...been there before."
Cons: "Curt treatment at check-in."
Pros: "Fun crew, smooth flight."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and quick."
Pros: "The quiz and prizes given by the service crew onboard"
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: "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?"
Pros: "Yes, the crews were super. They keep entertaining us the customers. Thanks guys"
Cons: "Seats do not recline"
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"
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"

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"

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: "It was almost 3 hours delayed."
Pros: "The flight was faster than the arrival time"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Ofcourse"
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: "More than 1 hr. delayed flyt"
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."
Cons: "Flight was updated with no other options at all. Original flight was cancelled and they booked us on a much later time. Supposedly, we are arriving in incheon at 8pm. With the updated booking, we are arriving at 10pm. On the day of our flight they informed us that ot would be delayed and we’ll arrive at Incheon at 12mn."
Cons: "Delayed flight."

Pros: "Thank you for the great services."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
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: "I like it because I arrived in Hong Kong earlier than the time we expect. So well done!"
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Cons: "Late leaving the gate then waited an additional 45+ minutes in a line of planes waiting to take off because NAIA is down to one runway."

Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Long queue"
Pros: "Fast boarding, Good landing and fast travel"
Cons: "Last minute change in Boarding Gate"
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"

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: "No free snacks"
Cons: "No refund oferred for my error"
Cons: "No cancellation refund for my error"

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."
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: "Timely, courteous Pilot Crew"
Cons: "No beverages ! Not even free water. That's really cheap. Service staff needs to be more polite, friendly and professional."
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."
Cons: "First of all, when you book with Kayak, it does not specify that you have 0 (zero) kg included for luggages. At the airport, Jetstar wanted to charge me 1200$ usd for my luggages on a little 2h fligh. I had no choice but to agree on that and when i ask to pay, they asked me to wait for the credit card machine. We waited at least an hour and then they told us they only accept cash! 5 min to boarding and we had to left the luggages behind. I had to call hotel to get luggages back and ship them to us at cost of 1900$ usd. Once onboard, they only accept credit cards for purchases, what the hell is that! the worst airline ever! To top the story, they never sent the baby car seat as it was supposed to be included, it just disapeared! Hell to Jetstar!"
Pros: "On time, better service, smile and friendly hostess. We can order hot meals in flight."
Cons: "It is oK with budget flight, we do not compare with premium flight like Singapore airline with higher ticket price."
Pros: "One of the most comfortable and spacious airline seats I've traveled in."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
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: "Over the PA system, it was announced that complimentary tea or coffee would be served. It never was."
Pros: "Our check in agent was efficient, fast and friendly - that's the best thing about this flight. There was no entertainment provided on our short flight, nor did we buy a meal, so those answers are meant to be a "not applicable "."
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."
Cons: "Takeoff delayed by 40 minutes Web checkin not recognized, they had to PRINT a boarding pass!!!!"
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: "For some odd reason 3 our of 4 of party received food, but for the fourth person they said we didn't book a meal with the ticket. We bought all the tickets together and saw no place when booking regarding meal service. It wasn't devastating, just odd. Weird check-in process in Vietnam. Wasn't very organized."
Pros: "I learned what a low cost airline is. I traveled no problem in Eva air from Seoul to Taipei with 1 check in bag at 20kg and two carry on bags 10kg and 5kg. To my surprise Jetstar Asia requires you to purchase your check in separately from your ticket. Furthermore you can only carry on 7kg. I ended up having to pay 1400 TSD to check at 15kg. Then 600 TSD per kg after that because I had to check in two bags or I was over the 7kg allotted carry on. I ended up paying an extra $286 for bags. I will never ever ever purchase another ticket from this airlIne ever again."
Cons: "the flight brought me to Singapore as I paid for. Except it's like I paid for two flights. Either way I learned what a low cost airline is."
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage even after purchasing the 20kg allowance separately online and baggage total weight under 20kg."
Pros: "Everything was ok for low cost airline"
Cons: "I heard bag fees were high, but so much worse than I expected. The baggage fees for my wife and I cost more than the flight, almost $300 USD. Will NEVER fly Jetstar again."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, but not severely. Fortunately, there was enough time in between connecting flights."
Cons: "So I didn't know that Qantas on the weekend makes you pay for wine/-alcohol when you fly on weekends. Doesn't matter if you pay a lot of money, you get budget airline treatment."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was just over 7kg but unless you pack well in advance Jetstar is always a pain in the arse. The old woman next to started picking the skin on her feet an hour into the flight- although that is probably more a review of China than Jetstar. With Jetstar, I am just waiting for what BS will happen, so generally avoid them if at all possible- whether it is your bag being 1kg overweight, or they inform you your flight was delayed- when it wasn't causing missed flight, as happened recently- of course they have good customer service though- not- you will be lucky to even get a reply, and that is if you manage to email them because they keep their customer service email a secret....What a joke of an airline."
Cons: "Having known about the delay a day before, the cabin attendant claimed he delay was caused by a late arrival and a sequence of delays. Which seems unlikely and more like they have just rescheduled the flights."
Pros: "Nothing.... charged me 110$ USD last minute for 22 kg baggage! No in flight beverages or snacks and staff very rude !!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing.... charged me 110$ USD last minute for 22 kg baggage! No in flight beverages or snacks and staff very rude !!!!!"
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."
