Cons: "Seats need better padding"
Pros: "The technical aspects of the flight were fine. Boarding, the flight, and the aircraft. Very nice plane."
Cons: "The crew was not very friendly and it didn’t seem like there were enough staf for such a large plane. It took a long time to get our first meal, and the food was terrible in comparison to other flights, even other China air flights we’ve been on. We could not understand the English announcements as she was not a fluent speaker. I would probabalynavoid flying with China air again."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "15-20min delay to board"
Pros: "I like the staff was very nice, and boarding process was not bad."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely dirty, also my seat was saturated with a spilled drink and it was all over the seat and the tray table and tv, there was old food crusted on the seat back. I didn’t want to touch a thing thank god it was only a two hour flight. Very very outdated."
Pros: "Friendly airline staff. Ease of obtaining boarding pass at the counter. Clean, modern aircraft. Thanks China Airlines!"
Cons: "As with all airlines, the "the hurry up and wait" processes associated with getting onto the plane are tiring."

Pros: "Crew are courteous and efficient and food was good"
Cons: "Check isn't organized at all"
Cons: "Warm wash cloth must not be eliminated especially for long flights. I was not able to charge my phone since the outlet was non-functional. The flight experience wasn't that bad with the budget price of the ticket. Over-all it was okay."
Pros: "Food and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "Not too much room in terms of seating. Back pain felt after flight."
Cons: "Plane delayed 7 hours for a maintenance problem and all I got for my wait was a $25 voucher. That is an insult!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 8 hours"
Cons: "Originating flight in Manila to Taipei to connect to our SFO flight was cancelled late in Manila due to 'technical' issues (waiting in terminal, 4 hours past scheduled departure, which meant missing our connection to SFO), and the ensuing parade through having to stay in Manila overnight (on CA's dime, plus food), then rushed back to the airport the following morning (very short notice), then to have to wait again as CA figured out how to get a previously scheduled flight into the flight plan management systems, and obviously without a proper method to coordinate this sort of thing - ultimately all of this lack of 'control' over their situation, lead to a feeling that China Airlines does not know how to contend with interruptions, or how to make their customers feel informed so that they may be more understanding. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers). Bad image CA, bad image."
Pros: "Professional staff"
Pros: "I have flown on many airlines to include many US carriers for domestic travel, as well as, many international carriers. I have flown around the world 4 times in the 2016-2017. These flights were flown in Coach. I have to say that China Air was remarkable in its service, cleanliness, on-time departure and arrival, and all around airline operation. The meals were decent, the entertainment was well rounded, the aircraft was clean, the seats were wider and had greater leg room, the flight attendants were responsive and trained, and the on ground support was very helpful. I don't have anything negative to say about China Air and I have crossed the Pacific on thief airline three times now."
Cons: "Their web interface for miles account and general information needs a great deal of attention. I would love tosee them make improvements to their web and smart phone applications because they detract from the great service that they providein Air."
Pros: "Decent leg room iand comfort seats n coach, unlike US carriers without paying more for it, and selection of movies. Food was decent and service fast and efficient. For a 2 hr flight, Big THumbs Up!"
Cons: "All Good"
Pros: "Very nice short trip."
Pros: "Overall, polite service staff"
Cons: "Only few open counters for check in unlike at San francisco"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "Lay over too long"
Pros: "Never rebooted entertainment after it shut off until we were ready to land and left it in boarding mode"
Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."
Pros: "Flew Business and the seats and the service were excellent as expected. The food was OK. Good price for business class."
Pros: "China Airlines was very understanding with my carry-on situation as I had important medical equipment to hand carry."
Pros: "Love the leg room and hot ladies of China airlines.i enjoyed the flight entertainment, watched newly released movies. Oh and did I mention their stewardes were hot?"
Cons: "The breakfast noodles need more salt. Lol jk nothing really I loved it overall."
Pros: "first time on china airlines and would use them again. the plane was near new, leg room and staff was nice. good job!!!"
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "PAL flights always delayed"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment, low cost, service okay"
Cons: "Bad service in terms of understanding things."
Pros: "Very nice crew!!!"
Cons: "Everything is perfect for me."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. when there was announcement for boarding, they delayed again when everyone was already standing in line. Then they asked us to sit down but there was no seats. it was hot and no aircon. the security process was strict and prisonlike because it was a USA bound flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice!"
Cons: "The beef with rice meal tasted weird."
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: "Completing the trip"
Cons: "Timeliness of the boarding process"
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: "Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse."
Cons: "Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists."
Pros: "Crew was great. Kept the wine flowing"
Pros: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"
Pros: "Yes PAL FA are always excellent and the Pilot Captain n Co Pilot really made us all safe."
Pros: "Nice seats in business, good food, nice crew."
Cons: "Door closed ten minutes ahead of schedule yet had to wait on stand nearly half an hour to push back due to airport congestion. Arrived in HKG late at a remote stand and had to use stairs and be bussed to the terminal. I missed the last HKIA Express train to HK"
Cons: "The lounge is awful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor. No relatively new films . All TV programs were American. The Wi-Fi was slow at best . The crew tried hard but the attention to detail was lacking"
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."
Pros: "Clean toilets."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."
Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and attentive and found was simple but OK, with a choice."
Cons: "Legroom appalling. For anyone 6ft Plus it was a struggle and uncomfortable for the 3hr flight. Holding for 25 minutes after landing until parking spot became available didn’t help."
Pros: "Japan is so nice and clean. People were very helpful. Good food."
Cons: "During my Manila 8 hour layover, someone forced tonight unlock my luggage, opened some gifts inside( canned candies) envelope containing money and gifts. At this point while writing this review, im not finish unpacking and will continue to check next day to make sure im not missing anything else."
Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "I was very lucky to have two spaces beside me so plenty of room however I know this is not always the case. This plaine was modern with a good selection of inflight entertainment. The on board staff were extreamly courteous and helpful. Food was okay was a good selection of beverages on this flight. You are provided with inlight comforts like blackets etc if you wished to sleep -"
Cons: "No complaints on this flight"
Pros: "The food was brilliant, the flight attendants were friendly and helpful and the films were updated. It was a lovely touch providing the toiletry bag for all passengers."
Cons: "Limited access to water facilities."
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: "Honestly one of the best flights I had compared to my previous flight over from Hong Kong with same airline. Plane was newer with entertainment module with a huge list of movies and shows to choose from. food was the best airplane meal I had ever had. Had no issues during baggage or boarding,"
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that checking in online was impossible because I was booked from another airline (air Canada). I wish they could co-ordinate to make online booking available even though we were booked through another airline just so we had a better choice for our seats."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
Pros: "The ipad loaded with movies and magazines"
Cons: "The food needs improvement"
Pros: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."
Pros: "Flight left on time arrived early, bags were fast getting to the carousel. A good flight no hassles or dramas."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Screen too far from seat in business class."
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: "Getting off the flight."
Cons: "More often than not, Philippine Airlines has been our airline of choice because we found their rates to be fair and flights direct and easy. Despite the fact that the PAL terminal was pretty poor, and the food on board was never really decent, we remained loyal to PAL for quite a few years. On our way back to Melbourne from Manila on June 17, Saturday, Colin, Hendrix and I were awaiting boarding at gate 10 for flight PR 209. Having flown with PAL from Melbourne to Manila (as well as with another airline from Manila to Manchester and back), we understood that the usual procedure was to allow passengers with infants to board first. Due to the lack of order (there were no clear queues in sight), Colin decided to ask 3 different PAL personnel if there was, indeed, a priority queue for people travelling with infants. ALL THREE PERSONNEL ASSURED US THAT THEY WERE NOT YET BOARDING AND THAT WE WOULD BE CALLED UPON PRIOR TO THEM LETTING ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANE. 2 minutes later, a PAL personnel appears with signage that reads certain row numbers and begins to call out to ALL PASSENGERS FOR BOARDING. Colin swiftly rushes to the front (me and baby in tow) and demands an explanation as to why we were told one thing but are watching them act upon something completely different. I wish I was joking when I tell you that the personnel just stared blankly at us and then carried on checking boarding passes. No apologies, no explanation offered. As soon as we boarded, Colin turned to the first flight steward he saw and asked for a complaint form and told this could ONLY be done online, to which Colin requested we be given the email/web address upon take off. The seats assigned to us were on the right most side of the aircraft, a window and a middle seat. As Colin was placing our bags in the overhead compartment, the steward called to Colin from across the aisle (past the 3 seats in the middle of the plane) to introduce the purser, Jolly Bello. Please note this was happening while people were also trying to get past and get to their seats -and Mr. bello called out across the aisle, "I heard you have a complaint??" to which Colin, baffled, replied "yes do you want to come over here so we aren’t shouting over these people?". Colin yet again told this purser what the complaint was about and was asked (verbatim) "so would you like to make a complaint against THEM?" Would the correct protocol not be to 1. Apologise for any confusion, miscommunication or poor service, 2. Take some responsibility and acknowledge the complaint and 3. Maybe come approach us AFTER TAKE OFF and not while everyone is trying to board the plane? We are no longer choosing Philippine Airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 5 hours - Connection from Manila was going to be very close. Flight attendant assured me multiple times they would hold the connecting plane, and give us an escort off the plane to make it to the other gate as fast as possible. We arrive in Manila, and there is no special escort. They take us at a regular pace to a connections desk in the terminal. They delayed helping us so we missed the only other flight leaving that night for Bali. While the person at the transfer desk was supposed to be helping us get new connecting flights, they would stop helping us, and take care of other people that showed up at the desk. It took them 1 1/2 hours to rebook our flight. They tried to put us on a flight that took over 20 hours with connections for a direct flight we had missed that would take about 4 hours of flying. We had to get on Kayak.com ourselves to find a better connecting flight that left the next morning. After 1 1/2 hours, the attendant finally put on a flight that was similar to the one we found but slightly worse. They said they could not work with certain airlines leaving from Manila, which I did not understand. Then, they proceed to tell us to go wait in the terminal overnight for the flight leaving the next day. We had to directly ask them to give us a hotel room for the night, which they did upon our request, but were not going to offer it without us asking for it. I understand delays and missed flights are part of air travel. But we were routinely lied to, ignored, and flat out pushed aside during the rebooking process. It was a completely unacceptable way to treat a customer. Never fly Philippine Airlines if you can avoid it."
Pros: "Food wasn't too bad, stewards were pleasant but had to wait ages for water. Like the 2 4 2 layout so we didn't have to disturb anyone for "comfort" breaks."
Cons: "Checking in, a few kg overweight, they made us put the excess into our hand baggage, it meant opening our 4 cases, actually moving things which weighs less than half a kg, complete waste of time, over half an hour. Complete waste of time as it's on the same plane FFS. Entertainment via iPads, poor selection of films."
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"
Pros: "got lucky and no one sat next to me. Boarding was fast"
Cons: "No Entertainment module, have to pay for Wifi"
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."
Pros: "Budget airlines that flies through Manila."
Cons: "I was not allowed to carry on my guitar, despite it being short enough and there being plenty of room in the overhead bins. I was told that this is the official policy, but there is nothing written on the website about a no carry-on-guitar policy or in the emails for my e-ticket. If I had known, I would have come prepared or flown another airline."
Pros: "I like the flight times if they depart on time."
Cons: "They were 4hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Ground staff said don't worry someone will assist you and provide a free flight. After arriving in Manila, they ground staff said sorry nothing we can do, it's impossible. I was stranded thanks to PhilAir delays and they refused to help me. I was on time to the airport, they were delayed big time and wouldn't help when they have the ability to help."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines airport was convoluted, no signage, no screens, horrible. Checked-in online to speed things up, but the ladies at the "Online check-in counter" was not there, and when they turned up, there were in training. Then the boarding gates/lounge. None of the restaurants accepted credit or debit cards (?). It's an international airport!?! Unbelievable. Once boarded, realised none of the seats had screens or any onboard entertainment unless you had downloaded the myPal app. It would have been handy if the check-in staff informed us of this. Then there were flight delays, with no explanation. No screens with any live updates. Nothing. Worst terminal on planet earth! Now the plane. It must be a plane bought from another airline who completed their 30 year lease of the aircraft, because it looked like from the 1980's or older. Falling apart, uncomfortable, toilets not working, dirty, run down. The air-crew were lazy and rude and were inconsistent. One would say they ran out of something, then the person next to me would ask another crew, and received what they requested (food, assistance, pens, etc). Horrible. The pilots rarely informed us of the flight updates. Just utterly horrible! I cannot believe I have to fly with them on my return leg back home :("
Cons: "Everything. 6 hr delay, unhelpful clueless staff, food, comfort of seats, lack of entertainment, crappy terminal in Manila"
Cons: "We boarded the plane approx on time but we were sitting for a while when an announcement asked for 2 passengers to identify themselves with the crew. Nothing more was said until we were now 40 minutes past departure time and the Captain comes on to say we were waiting for a take off slot from the Air Traffic Control!!! No apologies or advice as to what had happened. We finally were on the runway at approx 12 midnight or 1 hr 25 mins late. To top it all I get an email from PAL at 1.56am (I saw this after arrival of course) which said the plane had changed its arrival time to 9.30am - but the departure time remained the same!!! How am I also going to receive an email when I am already flying?? Food was aweful Entertainment system was also aweful - my future flights on PAL will be only a last resort"
Cons: "It was an A330 plane and the configuration was 3-3-3. Usually, it's 2-4-2. This is not the way if you want to be a 5-star airline in 2020."
Pros: "Boarding was ok Crew was great and very friendly Entertainment was ok on the flight there there was tv in the head rest on the way back there was none you had to have your own devices and watch over the planes WIFI"
Cons: "When I was boarding my carry on was 2 kg over and they wanted to charge me $100 with no other option just pay the money or throw your things away. On both flights going a and coming there was no way to charge your devices I.E. plugs or USB ports... This become much more important with flights don't have tv in the headrests and you have to use your own devices to watch movies over the planes WIFI The food is airplane food and being a cheap airline it's worse than most."
Scoot is always great value for money.
Cons: "Flight delayed. Please be punctual if can’t be earlier."
Pros: "Air Crew was polite. Ground crew was the slowest and most inefficient group of people I've witnessed. There'd be 3 people working, but 2 of them would be talking to each other, letting the queues build up."
Cons: "Ground experience was pretty terrible at the airport. Most likely I'd avoid flying through here again."
Pros: "The crew were super patient (a must when dealing with the quality of passengers from Trichy who were lacking in manners and etiquette)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The majority of passengers seem to not be used to the normal manners and etiquette of queuing and it was chaotic with pushing. Some discipline and order needs to be enforced by ground crew (and this will no doubt make the cabin crews' lives easier)."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Seats are very tight if you are over 5’6"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "It was very good value for money."
Pros: "Not sure if I have much trust in the crew. Most of the female crew would walk past passengers who had their seats reclined or in the toilets and other situations and wouldn’t notice (during take off and landing) and the guy would come past later and do her job for them. Ground staff in Bangkok"
Pros: "Crew were kindly"
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"
Pros: "Can't complain"
Cons: "Cheaper? :) !"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Overpriced drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Extremely rude."
Cons: "I got sick on the flight from some food poisoning and the crew acted put out when I asked for some water."
Pros: "Loved the tinted windows on the Dreamliner! And the rainbow lights at the end of the flight. Scoot personal were excellant!"
Cons: "Things to know: Need to download an app before getting on the flight to get ScootTV. Plane was a little loud."
Pros: "Overall okay. Food was not in our list because the flight is about one and a half hour. No entertainment as it was a short one and we departed earlier than the estimated time."
Pros: "Good price. Was on time, seats were comfortable, helpful staff"
Cons: "No use of headphones 30 minutes before take off and arrival"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The long delay......"
Pros: "Organised well. Clean plane. Excellnt comms from pilot and staff presented well."
Cons: "Could not recline chair"
Pros: "Crew were professional, friendly and efficient. Aircraft was clean in the cabin and in good serviced condition. Check in Staff were efficient, friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating configuration in economy very small. My Husband is a tall, big man and was cramped by the seat pitch, which made his trip very uncomfortable. To think that we have to pay for such an essential item to life as WATER, when it is free on most other airlines....or at the very least you can get a glass of water. I couldn’t believe the charge price for a tiny bottle of water and the fact that you can’t even get a glass of water either. This is an outrage and a rip off to customers."
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "No offer to book my seat assignment during the booking process. A kiosk check-in would be a nice addition."
Cons: "Seats we given did not recline .as they were just in front of emergency exit . The extra leg room seats were empty, but would have to pay extra to sit on them"
Pros: "boarding is thru gate and not tarmac"
Cons: "food are expensive."
Pros: "great check in staff fast boarding comfortable temperature in cabin very good crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 30 mins."
Pros: "Food are excellent. Legroom is good for a budget airlines. Crew are nice"
Cons: "We were given just one very small water about 150ml and told we have to pay if we need more water. Restriction on providing drinking water in Business class seems unfair. Please reconsider"
Pros: "very nice while Landed and take off."
Cons: "We did not order any foods. No suggestion."
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Pros: "Punctuality was good. No complaints generally."
Cons: "Temp in cabin too high."
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Cons: "If they have a policy that passengers cant eat food bought outside the aircraft they should make sure that they have variations/choices on their menu. I can only eat fish but they dont have it on their menu so i brought my own food but the crew asked me to stop eating it because it was not allowed. Im hungry and tired and was upset that time."
Pros: "The departure time was delayed but the crew made every effort to arrive on time. Kudos to the pilots. The cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "I get that it’s a budget flight, so no frills. I wasn’t expecting bottled water but at least offer some water in a cup. The water bottles being sold was expensive and too small. They encourage us to stay hydrated but not everybody can keep shelling out money for water, and strictly no outside food or drinks. Can they at least allow us to bring water, short flights not so much a problem but long flights, not so good for that strict rule."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, saw them help several people put their luggage in the overhead bin."
Cons: "There was absolutely no complimentary service at all, a bit unusual compared to flights we've taken in the past (domestic and international). No offer of free water, what's up with that?!?! There was no entertainment on board for an overnight flight, no blanket, no pillow. And on top of that we paid too much to check in a bag when we arrived at the airline desk because we didn't include it through our Kayak booking. Had we known there was a method to follow, we would have to avoid the excessive fee."
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "QUIET ZONE"
Cons: "FLIGHT AIR CON TO COLD NOT ENOUGH TOILETS"
Pros: "Scoot Business is excellent value for money. 35 seats at the front of a Dreamliner with comfortable seats and some recline. The flight took off on time and landed in Sydney on time. I will go again."
Cons: "Not much really. It does not compare with Business on the national carriers but at half the price what do you expect?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and plane embarked on time. ScootBiz seats pretty comfortable although don’t seem to recline much more than economy. Overall good flight though."
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "Nothing other than punctuality."
Cons: "After boarding started there was no Aircon the flight was boiling hot and hugely suffocated. Also so many mosquito surely need better service."
Cons: "Boarding was quite messy as flight was delayed but many passengers were not informed. Only one service officer was being bombarded with questions from passengers when it would save so much trouble just making a proper announcement in the first place. Boarding queue also merged with another flight departing at a similar time, causing a massive bottleneck. Whilst on board, pre-ordered food was not served with cutlery and it took another 15 mins to get the attn of the stewardess to get the cutlery served. Would have been faster to just get it myself."
Pros: "It's a no frills airline! Plane on time, clean, arrived on time. What more do you want?"
Pros: "Early baggage check and fast boarding. The flight was on time, too."
Cons: "Least amount of leg room I have ever had. I will not complain too much because the flight was only 2 hours."
Pros: "Safe smooth flight. No frills."
Waited Over 5 Hours for a 1 1/2 hour Flight. Manila AirPort is absolutely pathetic. This was after Cebu Pacific personnel tried to overcharge me for excess baggage.
Pros: "Fun crew, smooth flight."
Pros: "awsome deal awsome flight"
Cons: "nothing great flight."
Pros: "The quiz and prizes given by the service crew onboard"
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 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."
Pros: "Yes, the crews were super. They keep entertaining us the customers. Thanks guys"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t full so crew should have let us spread out"
Pros: "All is helpful"
Cons: "Make the plane clean..."
Pros: "Nothing. Website did not notify me when booking that visa for us was required so I did not even get to fly to my destination which was a waste of my time and money to drive 5hrs to the city and not get any of my money back."
Cons: "Put a notification when rsvp’n ticket that certain countries need a visa approval from their country before booking. Wasted my time/money so I didnt even get to go to Vietnam n wasted a 5hr drive to my city. At least could have gave me some future discount code since I couldn’t get any money back"
Pros: "Seat was ok. A little hard, but reclined enough to help. On time-a rarity for Cebu Pacific."
Cons: "At least a small meal and drinks on a 8.5 hour flight."
Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
Pros: "On time, allowed very early check in up to 4 hours before flight time"
Pros: "At least no gate change or delay..shock shock"
Cons: "Checkin as usual was understaff and slow....agent refused to enter our getgo numbers or change our seat assgnment as had been done in the past. Refused to orint boarding pass because i had on my phone....i dislike this and want paper backup! Speaker system for gate announcements at term 3 is the worst! Boarding is always bad but now a new system to read tickets is worse than ever! My knees touch the seat in front it is so crammed...at least short one hour of discomfort."
Cons: "customer service"
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: "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."
Cons: "My flight reservation couldn’t be found when I tried to check in online so I have to buy another ticket the day of for $400. When I got to the check in counter it turns out I already had a ticket. Kayak and Cebu were very unhelpful."
Pros: "After dozens of flights finally left and arrived on time. Actually had a jetway at manila too! Was seated in premium seats row 2 ...what a difference cimpared with the crapoy cramped rows in the back!"
Cons: "Boarding was a fiasco, no zones called. Wheelchairs and children were ignored and were treated no different. Flight sttendants never smiled and just were going thru the motions..very disappointing Cebu"
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: "I was placed in a middle seat between a family, even though there was was 5 empty rows of seats. Thought that was annoying, but I moved to my own row and was happy."
Pros: "The seats by the window were large which was nice."
Cons: "They charge you for snacks and drinks. Despite the low price I already paid for the ticket and those amenities should be automatically included."
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."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seat was small and uncomfortable. Had to pay for food and coffee for a 4 hour international flight. Never again"
Cons: "Crew seemed unfriendly, many small delays . There, passengers were no allowed in galley area to use toilet, had to walk through aisle #1"
Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"
Pros: "On time. Organized boarding. Roomy seats"
Pros: "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: "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: "Boarding went swiftly and without issues. On board catering however rely's more on pre-booking your meals else there are hardly any options left. Seat was ok and punctuality too."
Cons: "The check-in was a mess.. we were the first at the counter but among the last to board. The clerc disappeared with my passport and asked me to transfer luggage on the spot. On top she did not return the booking form. Luckily I had a second copy or my filipino friend would have been stopped by filipino immigration."
Pros: "Clean plane nice space"
Cons: "Too much late ! Delay for 45 minutes"
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."
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."
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."
Pros: "I am missing my luggage’s"
Cons: "Where is my luggage"
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Check in was ok iwith all our checked in bags tagged as Fragile to signify priority baggage that came with our AirAsia Visa credit card perks. Boarding was slightly chaotic."
Cons: "Room for improvement for priority checked in baggage upon arrival in Manila -- only 1 out of our 5 priority bags came out first while the other 4 came in last together with all the other non-priority bags."
Pros: "Very good, I like Air Asia"
Cons: "Delayed 30min The Manila Domestic terminal is really bas"
Cons: "Everything. A disaster of communication, service and staff instructed to lie about consumer rights so that passengers are discouraged from asking for compensation"
Pros: "Food was tasty, check-in was simple, flight arrived on time."
Cons: "None - no entertainment but didn’t expect any on budget airline."
Pros: "The music"
Cons: "No free food, very cold. Flight was delayed. Ordinary"
Cons: "I booked through kayak which redirected to kiwi. On the boarding pass it gave the wrong terminal (domestuc terminal, when i was flying internationally) then to find out the terminal got updated online. In addition, the flught was delayed and gates were changed and i found out AFTER i already boarded the plane. Terrible."
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: "It was just ok"
Cons: "If you almost 180cm and 95 kilos the leg room just not very comftable in economy seats. That why I say just ok for short flight. Then departing Hong Kong 2 trains and a bus to plane once inside airport crazy to find if not expirenced traveler"
Pros: "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"
Cons: "No space for luggage due to lack of enforcement of one carry on policy. Seats are way too close and they lean back, knee was in the seat in front the whole flight. Plane is old and landing was hard."
Pros: "Cabin is well air conditioned."
Cons: "No notice of slight flight delayed. Comfort rooms are not clean and some have no running water."
Cons: "The crew hate their jobs."
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."
Pros: "No hassle checking in"
Cons: "The seat was a little unc"
Cons: "The boarding was always late"
Pros: "They have online check in."
Cons: "Scheduling. Flight was scheduled initially at 3:30PM , moved to 5:50 and finally left past 8PM."
Pros: "The ladies at the counter were helpful and got me on earlier flight because mine was delayed for 3rd time."
Cons: "Always delay. Worst airline ever! I will not book Airasia again."
Pros: "The air conditioning was great"
Cons: "It was postponed for 2 hours, the plane was full and apparently the check in employee thought it would be funny to give separate seats to a newly wed couple...Not Funny At All!!"
Cons: "Waiting on runway for nearly two hours, delayed an additional hour at the gate, and a complete lack of communication regarding delays"
Pros: "Much better than cebupacific. More flights to more places please so I never have to fly cebupacific again."
Cons: "I checked in online. No checked bags. Went straight through security. Departure screen not working AGAIN. No company logo identifying Air Asia at gate. Asked employees at 3 other airlines and security. All of them told me they couldn't or wouldn't help. Had to crisscross the terminal for 90 minutes trying to find any sign of where AA was flying from. Inexcusable."
Cons: "flight from puerto princesa to manila was delayed by four hours and we missed connection to Europe. We had to stay other terrible day in Manila and had to buy a new expensive ticket :-("
Pros: "Flying on Airbus 320"
Cons: "Meal and baggage choices must be made before flight or additional charges will be paid. Delayed 45 minutes for 1.5 hour flight!!"
Cons: "A new low in tight packing. Tray was too close to go down"
Cons: "Was charged for baggage for child even tho she had paid same fare as adults - staff said child not eliginle for carry on baggage allowance"
Pros: "Made a reservation at a time because we were flying in from elsewhere. They moved our flight time up 2 hours, canceled all the later ones,and they were 30 minutes away from where we landed 1 1/2 hours before. We called and got no help. Had to pay $25 for a ripoff taxi to get us there on time. Then they were 40 minutes late anyway. No complimentary anything, no water nothing just buy buy buy."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours before our flight, only to be told that there was a delay of 2 hours, then before our flight delay time another 2 hours was added, and a further 2 hours. We were supposed to land in Kalibo at 6.40pm, and didn't arrive until 1.15am!! The even more annoying thing is that i paid double the cost of the evening flight to arrive at our original time, I should have just taken the ferry at least then we could have enjoyed the near 12hour journey it took us to travel less than hour hour in the plane!! Poor piece of food whilst waiting 9 hours also!!"
Pros: "There was not much I liked about this flight. However was was rather inexpensive to pay for baggage prior to getting to the airport."
Cons: "I hate the fact that food, including water, was only available for purchase. It was a very tight squeeze sitting on this plane. My seat didn't hardly recline."
Pros: "Check-in online process was easy. Price was good. Staff was very helpful at the counter. Aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "The terminal bathrooms were awful in Aquino airport, not the airline's fault. Was so hard to board with 2 small kids amongst all the people rushing onto the plane. Would be better to have us board first or last. No free peanuts or water, I guess something only American companies do. No entertainment."
Pros: "Old plane and seats in Row 14 were broken and angled down so you practically slid off the seat! Flight crew all knew about it and said nobody has fixed it yet for a while!"
Cons: "Plane left 2 hours late. Charged for carry-on Charged for water and sodas Plane was dirty"
Pros: "The price was low, but I believe there were other airlines in the same price range."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed for over an hour. They did not report all the delays to the flight status sites. I think it was in an effort to keep their on time percentages higher. Choose a different airline if you prefer to be on time."
Pros: "LOW fares"
Cons: "Hey I know its the Philippines, I've been here many times, but ALL of the Air Asia flights were delayed, ours 2 hours...we flew Air Asia to Kalibo last week, delayed 4 hours. But Cebu Pacific flights were all delayed too. Just prepare for long waits at waiting area. Ferry boats are often cancelled or delayed too, its just the way it is here in the PI."
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "I was trying to rebook not luck. Lost my $400 no refund."
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."
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: "I don't like the two times charging of check-in baggage. One charge for each way rather than doing a discounted roundtrip charge given the fact the my ticket was a roundtrip one."
Pros: "Staff at the Manila Airport were extremely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My flight departed 3 hours late from Manila. There was only a couple centimetres to spare between my knees and the seat in front of me. I am glad the flight was only 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and the pilot gave good updates. Leather seats."
Cons: "Seats were way to compressed, much like every other short-haul plane. A lot of items were unavailable; we flew around lunchtime."
