I had to keep calling them to restore it back to original flight but was unsuccessful. This is the worst customer service and business model ever!!!!! I will have to get rid of my membership... Food- They ran out of the beef dinner I wanted so they served a substitute. It tasted awful!!!! The seafood dinner on the return trip home was also awful! They need to find a vendor that can cook western dishes well. Comfort- The seat for the economy doesn't have enough leg room esp for a 16 hours flight. Crew- can be more friendly. No one is smiling or accommodating to a small request! They are very stingy in terms of offering extra water, ginger ale or juices."

They wanted me and my 80 year old Mom siting in different places. I refuse and explained she can’t be by herself and showed my confirmed itinerary seats. She then found seats for both of us to sit together."
Pros: "Food and space"
Pros: "The food is so good."
Cons: "The check in counter is not fully organized. I encounter so much delay in checking in my luggage. The new employee must be properly assisted by the old personnel to avoid long hours of waiting and standing in the counter of the passengers who arrived early so they can check in their baggage ahead of time. I availed of your web check in but was waiting for so long in the check in counter."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. The flight was on time"

Pros: "The trip was uneventful, food was good, service was excellent, restrooms were clean, couteous fight attendants."
Cons: "The check in time to board was very long-understandably that may be out of Asiana's control. The check in procedures at the gate was inefficient-again, out of Asiana's control. Seats were tight-seems to be made for a petite person. I'm 5-7 with broader shoulders."
Pros: "free seating in the emergency row was nice. the sick lady next to me should never have been in that same row however. the food was marginal, I don't do Korean at all. I actually call it bait..."
Cons: "booking at a web site the problem. Asiania landed in seattle ahead of schedule. I still missed my connection. the fact I had flight insurance just meant I could go after the taxi fare home due to this missed connection and then wait a year for the money back. seattle as well as Vancouver BC are both terrible entry points to the USA. I slept on the Vancouver airport floor last year. this trip it was very close to sleeping in seattle because immigration and customs take so long, then require going back thru security at a 2 check point choke hold in the basement of the seattle international section. next trip I think I will take a boat."
Pros: "Crew members. .."
Pros: "Professional and efficient cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "Boarding from Korea ro JFK well organized but had us waiting in line forever. Boarding in Manila by rows starting in the rear as it should be."
Cons: "My dietary restrictions were not addressed and I went 8 hours without food or snacks even when I asked for anything else. The flight attendants ignored my friend and I but were very attentive to the others on the plane. Our luggage (same amount of weight) was scrutinized from Manila and we had to leave 10 kg of items in Manila while we flew with the same weight for carry ons. The desk crew was speaking in Tagalog about my friend and I not knowing we understood. One passenger waited in line so long (the one directly in front of us) she passed out. They had us go back and forth 4 times because the luggage was .3 kg over. Overall, the discrimination we faced, the lack of accommodation for non beef/pork options, the lack of customer service and the blatant disregard for my travel group is unacceptable. I should have paid the extra 50$ and gone with a different airline. The savings were not worth the discomfort and the workers were beyond inept."
Pros: "I love this airlines everything about it is just great"
Cons: "Stopping in Korea I just wish it was a direct flight"
Pros: "Aside from being late in boarding the plane the food flight and staff were good."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Finest Airline and service I have encountered and I am almost 2 million miles!"
Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."
Cons: "Sitting place too small"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "Crew and the food"
Cons: "Seating was tight for me a big guy"
Pros: "They are amazing"

Pros: "Just fine.."
Pros: "Crew was helpful but 1 crew forgot my dinner drink which was a hot tea drink."

Pros: "Food choices were great"
Cons: "flight was super bumpy but not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "Service and plane"
Pros: "Friendly service on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding for premium economy had no special boarding. We were forced to stay in a long long line even though we paid almost double the fair with premium economy. All our other flights we got earlier boarding. There was no explanation given when I asked"
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "Somewhat disorganized bec. People lined up even if swat numbers have not been called."
Cons: "People trying to push their way in the line. Color coding of tockets associated with colored line coding may improve situation."
Cons: "Too cramped not enough space staff are not friendly will not fly Cathay again"
Pros: "their korean movies"
Cons: "they have worst coordination between airline crew and airport personnel who is in charge with services taking care for the handicap they forgot to board my aunt so i had to help my aunt board then the crew informed me i am not allowed to bring her in the plane and leave the wheelchair in the tube i had to bring her in the plane since my aunt was anxious other people in wheelchair was already brought in and she was left behind"
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Flight is an hour delayed ☹️. I don’t like the fact that u can’t choose ur own seat online"
Cons: "Unhealthy meals and snacks.,unappetizing,used plastics. Not enough bathroom supplies for international flight. Landed in JFK instead of newark"
Pros: "Had a nice meal, 2 hours 20 min flight. very nice"
Pros: "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
Cons: "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."
Pros: "Ana toyko has 3meals cathay has 2 almpst 16 hours and long fliggt ana has better spacing and bring snacks to you you dont have ask. And i couldnt choose seats till check in ana i coul f"
Cons: "I was seated at the last seats and by the time it was my turn to choose from the menu, there was none left but just one option for me. Hope Cathay pacific will add extra food selections to accommodate passengers in the last seats."
Pros: "Crew is polite and always willing to serve. Cathay always boards quickly and is always on schedule."
Cons: "I just don't care much for airline food .....I'm 6-4 so I'm never comfortable on long flights. There needs to be more popular movie selections."
Pros: "The crew assisted my wife on boarding the plane."
Cons: "Because of her condition we should get more legroom for her."

Cons: "Flight was delayed leading to harried connection."
Pros: "Service and courtesy"
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Cons: "Food was awful flight and cr"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic all services was really awesome. It was my first time to flight Cathy and i was amazed"
Cons: "We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again."

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: "The cabin was very cold. A little warmer would have been nice."

Pros: "The only good thing I can say about this experience with Hong Kong Airlines is that the On Board Flight Crew was very good and the IFE had a good selection of titles."
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: "Crew is not happy"
Cons: "Be on time but if not help reroute Broke wheels on luggage"
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: "Cleanliness of the restroom which can be improved. The temperature inside the cabin was a little on the warm side."
Pros: "Good food Cheap airfare considering it’s Dec. Boarded/departed/arrived on time/ahead of time"
Cons: "Leg room quite tight Ipad instead of a built-in screen"
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"
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: "online check in process convenient; bag drop off at LAX counter was seamless. in-cabin entertainment adequate. usb portplug for charging personal electronics."

Pros: "Food and entertainment we're solid. Creature comforts we're solid for economy international (toothbrush, blanket, socks, and sleep mask.)"
Cons: "Never got an e-ticket until the night before outbound flight. Combined with the airline's outsourced customer service, lack of record keeping, and mediocre customer service skills on both sides of the Pacific, boarding was a traumatic experience. Never booking another international flight through Kayak, nor flying Hong Kong Airlines again. Domestic may not be totally out though."
Cons: "Delayed all the time.. and the stressed that this airline put me thru.. i didnt get my luggage until a week after i already arrived.. and no compensation for that!. I do not have any clothes and underwear to wear for 6 days!"

Pros: "Fast loading to plane and out, very friendly staff"
Pros: "We were traveling Hanoi-Hong Kong...Looking at HK airlines website I found that my flight to/from HongKong to Southwest Pacific should be 30kg.Whe I got to airport to check in the agent said it was 20kg...I showed him the website...He claims southwestPacific is Aus/New Zealand even though Aus/NZ had there own category under Zone 3...It was very confusing and could have been quite expensive as they charge $10/kg excess weight.Other than that it was a nice experience.."
Pros: "The staff were fast, friendly, and helpful. They all spoke good enough English to communicate properly at all times. Drinks and food came in a timely manner. The fight felt like it ended as soon as it started. Possibly the fastest disembarkment I've ever had."
Cons: "On the first flight, the plane was equipped with newer technology, including a touch screen entertainment set. But, the flight announcements came over headsets at full blast volume. The return flight was using older equipment, no touch screens involved, but the announcements were not loud over headsets (thankfully)."
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."
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: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "On time arrival"
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."
Pros: "We arrived safely to Guam."
Cons: "Flight is 3 hours delayed. Takes long time for boarding process."
Pros: "The price is quite competitive. That is my only reason to choose Philippine Airline."
Cons: "In the Manila Airport, once you entered into the waiting area, it would be a hassle to go to the washroom, for you have to go through the security check lineup again to go back to the waiting area."
Pros: "Vwry pleasant flight"
Pros: "The food was better."
Cons: "The flight got delay for 1 hour."
Pros: "Most things went smoothly and the return leg arrived 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Late change of gate for opening leg"

Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Narrow seat and no leg room"
Cons: "Flight delayed for about 2 hours"
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding ."
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"
Pros: "Philippine service is always good"
Cons: "Food not so good and small seats."
Pros: "the crew and food were both good."
Cons: "too much much delay , the were delay at every stop over"

Pros: "Flight was in time and service was good as expected"
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy but still on time"
Pros: "Everything no complaints."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Little Delayed"
Pros: "Good food and staff. Arrived to destination 30 min early"
Cons: "Plane was way too hot. No AC it seemed. Made for an uncomfortable 4 hours."
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: "Excellent service and nice people"
Pros: "The food is ok and thy serve you plenty of it."
Cons: "Worn out seats, dated aircraft, our 12hr return flight had no in-seat entertainment, they are playing an obnoxious theme song on an infinite loop during boarding and exiting. Unless you need to fly directly to the Philippines, I would avoid this airline for connections to other points in Asia. There are just way better airlines that will get you to Asian cities for a little more money. Pay the extra, as it will be worth it for that long of a flight."
