Cons: "The plane needs upgrade business class seats"

The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Pros: "easy check in process and the crew was awesome. friendly and attentive to all passengers. great food as well."
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"

Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Pros: "everything are okey"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Loved the hot towels, socks & tooth brush set, flight attendants were always really helpful and friendly"

Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now.

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."
Cons: "- The check-in counters opened at least 30 minutes late. The agents arrived late, they seemed to be having a good time and didn't feel the need to explain the reason for the delay nor apologize for it. - On my flight to Manila from Los Angeles, I did not check in any luggage. I had a carry-on and a backpack that fit perfectly well into the overhead bins and underneath the front seat. On my flight from Manila to Los Angeles, I was not allowed to take the same set on board because the total weight exceeded 7 kg. This put me in a bind because the heaviest item I had was my small LCD monitor which was in my backpack. I had to put it into the carry-on with wheels which I had to be checked-in. I would have prepared to carry it in my backpack because it is a fragile item. When I was told to sign a document that absolves the carrier of any liability for the checked-in luggage and I refused, the China Airlines Duty Officer in Manila informed me that unless I sign the document, my luggage will not be loaded on the plane. I felt extremely frustrated by the attitude of the Duty Officer who didn't hesitate to threaten me and insisted that the rule was imposed on them by the TSA in the US. Instead of helping me work out a solution to the difficulty I was facing, he simply walked away with a dismissive attitude."

Cons: "2 hrs delayed in our first flight and one hour in our connection"

Cons: "My ears were painful the whole time probably because it was a small aircraft."
Pros: "Boarding was organized by zones. Pretty smooth and quick."
Cons: "Having to checkin a carry on that was supposedly bulky when a) many people had backpacks at the same time as a hard case carry-on and b) this was the same carryon my son had on the outbound. Supposedly, FAA is more strict going into the US. The supervisors in the Manila-Taipei (10:45AM Jan 3, CI702) were very petty and inconsistent. The laptop backpack and carryon bag were already weighed and they demanded to re-weigh them."
Pros: "It’s takes s long time checking in due to long lines."

Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on a330, food is lackluster, overhead bins in a330 can be a little hard to reach. Maybe not an issue on newer planes? Tight aisles. Leg space could be a little bit better. Non adjustable headrest (height wise). Poor boarding procedures at manila but that's a given"
Pros: "Crew are courteous and efficient and food was good"
Cons: "Check isn't organized at all"
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"
Pros: "Lot of food, good entertainment selections, friendly"
Cons: "Did not appreciate the Delayson the flights, and this is annoying that you are making me type a certain amount of characters for a review"
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: "Plane was clean and staff were accommodating."
Cons: "Entertainment needed"
Cons: "To simply find how much weight I’m allowed in every section of the flight. Also I couldn’t check in online with ELAL maybe because the ticket was a Hong Kong Airlines ticket operated by ELAL"
Cons: "Get better food"
Pros: "The attitude of the crew was not acceptable. They are mean and rude to paying guest. The service was unacceptable. It was a cheap airfare and you also get cheap service. First time I flew with this airlines and It was super disappointment that I got from the crew. The airplane was newer but they could be better. They can learn better service from other airlines I booked with. Also, better quality of overall experience."
Cons: "Better touches on the seats, more cleanliness, doing it rightly than cheaply and most of all they should learn SERVICE from other airlines. Not because I bought a cheap fare does not mean we deserve a rude and mean service from the crew!"

Cons: "Delays in the air and on the ground going in and out of Hong Kong. On the return trip, 4hrs to Check In from Manila because of protests in Hong Kong. Flight was 2hrs late, my luggage didn’t make the connection. 2 days, no luggage, no communication. Never again will I fly Hong Kong Airlines."
Pros: "I bought tickets with just less than 4 hr layover, but when we were returning to the San Francisco, we had mire than 12 hour layover. I saw this in the listing when I was booking and did not buy this ticket. HK airlines just gave us food allowance not even enough to buy a descent meal!"
Cons: "HK Airlines should have notified us the reason of the long layover. I got perhaps this treatment because of the cheap ticket"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Tv screen wasn’t working properly"

The crew was attentive to passenger’s needs. The pilots did an excellent job specially in landing and take off. The ride was smooth."

Cons: "Leg room quite tight Ipad instead of a built-in screen"
Pros: "Good price"
Pros: "Crews inflight service"
Cons: "Unorganized of check in counters, on-line check in luggage drop waiting in the same line as others who needs check in, making waiting in line much longer for on line check in one"
Pros: "Everything went on smoothly from the check in up to arrival in hongkong"
Pros: "HK to Bangkok (same airline) was really different: enough room, good entertainment system, but still good crew. (Food was just a snack. But bags didn't make the exchange in time."
Cons: "Plane missed the runway. Plane was to high for runway and had to do a go around and line up for second landing"
Pros: "Plane was new and service was good!"
Cons: "For a 15 hour flight, they gave us lunch after 2 hours into takeoff and then dinner only 2 hours before landing. Portions were small too. The snack only consisted of about 10 pieces of popcorn. Next time I'll know to bring my own food for sustenance. No water offered either"
Pros: "I expected this to be a discount airline for the cost, but it ended up being a higher quality experience than my friends who took Cathay Pacific on the same trip. I was in Economy Class, cheapest seat possible. Boarding went smoothly, each seat was provided with a blanket, pillow, headphones, and a sleeping kit with blindfold, earplugs, and even a toothbrush. Each seat had built-in entertainment with a number of movies, tv shows, games, and music. I'm 6'2" and had plenty of legroom in my standard economy seat. Sitting next to the window made it very easy to stretch out and get some rest. Snacks, drinks, and meals were very tasty."
Cons: "The only very minor issue I could talk about would be that the Wifi was not free, and even when purchased, the connection was very spotty and inconsistent. I ended up just turning it off and occupying myself other ways. I didn't have any other issues with the airline. I went into the flight expecting to have a low-quality experience for my ticket price, but was blown away by the service and quality provided by HK Airlines. If I visit Hong Kong again, I will definitely be using their service."
Cons: "It is a conveniomal airline tailored for travellers seeking cheap tickets. Low expectations, and it was just it."
Pros: "They serve food on a 90 minute flight."
Pros: "I never thought that Hong Kong airlines was this good"
Cons: "The courtesy of the airline stewardess"

Pros: "Good value for the price paid. Entertainment selection was extensive. I was happy that my luggage was not lost in the transfer between airlines/planes during my long layover."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have come around more often. They served a mid-flight snack/meal but never came around to collect the trash."
Pros: "Decent plane"
Cons: "Lots of delays"
Pros: "The flight got us to our destination, with minimal fuss and no frills, which is what we paid for - so while the stars I gave aren’t amazing, it was exactly what we paid for"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and roomy. I also enjoyed the entertainment aviation. It made the flight go by very quickly."
Pros: "Fast loading to plane and out, very friendly staff"
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: "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."
Cons: "I don’t know why but I felt like they just didn’t care about your needs, I’m diabetic, and I needed to eat something sweet because my sugar levels dropped low, I asked the stewardess for a cookie but she didn’t want to give me one, I had to bagg her for a cookie, Very disappointing."

Cons: "Include the travel tax or watn clients the tickets included all taxes except the Philippine Travel Tax for tesidents of Philippines."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I booked the more expensive route through manila to Bangkok to maximize my time there but due to the delay I spent more money and got less time for the 1 day I had in Bangkok before connecting the next day. The airline offered me nothing, not even a meal to compensate for the inconvenience. The problem was mechanical, not weather. MNL is also an uncomfortable airport for layovers. Never agai. Sign Philippine Airlines!"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
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: "Friendly Staff"

Pros: "Everything no complaints."
Cons: "Unexpected pit stop added stress to our trip."
Pros: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."
Cons: "the airport in Manila is terrible. Elevator broken so had to carry my carryon up 6 or 7 flights of stairs. Not enough seats for the voucher breakfast and the breakfast was mainly tiny and full of carbohydrates."
Cons: "Traffic getting to the airport. Advice to others is allow plenty of time getting into manila"
Pros: "Comfortable seating."
Pros: "Philappo all very nice"
Cons: "nothing i didnt like"
Cons: "Always delay never been on time"
Cons: "Budget air because knee space is very tight."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Wanted to upgrade & was denied due to price being promotional fare which I don't believe was explicit @ time of purchase. In any event even though I was willing to pay was denied & entire process from checkin to boarding was terrible. THEN when bags were put on conveyor they were placed with no concern & I literally saw one TEAR OPEN on the belt! Mine ended up at the wrong carousel. Lovely."
Cons: "Very bad, delay 90 minutes"
Pros: "clean and well maintained"
Cons: "everything was great"
