Pros: "Free space"
Cons: "Layover switch"
Cons: "Baggage delayed for days"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and was not able to catch up my cebu flight. I was accommodated in a flight about 5 hrs after my original mla ceb flight and was not allowed access to PAL lounge as I was told I only have an economy flight. Very frustrated considering I flew as a PWD."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The ride..."
Cons: "Flight attendants skipped/didnt serve our row any drinks."
Cons: "Food on time"
Pros: "None!!!!!!! Because i pay for my seat assignment and they give me the wrong seat and they say no refunds because they cannot allocate the seat assignment that i bought."
Cons: "They have should have a refund policy and they should have hire more profesional when in comes to customer service."
Pros: "The flights were fine. Airplanes clean. Food and service good"
Cons: "Manila airport is chaos. Transferring planes on international flights is horrible. 2 additional security checks and disorganized chaos"

Pros: "Left on time. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Food and service. Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. Lots of choice. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to come around more often to offer water or other beverages because dehydration is such an issue on a 16+ hour flight. In addition, we boarded on time at 1:00 for a 1:45am flight but did not leave the gate until 4:00am. This jeopardized my connection in Manila."
Pros: "The PAL Pilot and Cabin crew was very attentive and friendly. they showed professionalism to every passengers they have encountered. They were very attentive to the needs of each passenger due to 3 hrs delayed arrival. The food taste really good (Strawberry shortcake + chicken penne with red sauce). The plane is well cleaned."
Cons: "I have experienced 1 hr delay departure + 3 hours waiting inside the plane to land, but it was because of uncontrolled situation (force majuere). but despite of the delay, for me PAL served its finest world class service."
Cons: "Checking in was terrible. We had 2 luggage each allowed by Japan airlines. When we checked in to our connecting flight with Philippines airlines, we were told we were very excessively overweight. We had to pay almost 10,000 pesos for the excess weight.What is acceptable to one airline is not with Pa"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful in assisting older women and men going to/from the toilet back to their seats."
Cons: "Stellar service from check-in especially cabin staff was on point. Thank you PAL"
Pros: "Philippine Air staff are amazing. They will do everything possible within their power to make you comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are a little thin and the angle does not give adequate lower back support."
Pros: "nothing good about this airlines they sell cheap fares and overcrowded planes"
Cons: "they do not offer any veg food"
Cons: "The PAL terminal in MNL is one of the worst airports in the world. PAL's in flight service is fine. But they really need to improve their terminal if they want to keep customers"
Pros: "I loved the space in Business class. It was comfortable and great for sleeping."
Cons: "The movies in the entertainment system were boring and the food fell short of what I would expect from business class."
Pros: "Food is better than most economy boarding and friendly cabin crew service."
Cons: "The tv screens and navigation feels dated, and earphones are a bit combersome. Probably got an older plane though."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Cons: "Food, be ontime, inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."
Pros: "3 meals, drinks, pillow, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste and sleep mask were included. Staff was friendly and kind. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Aside from the scare of not making my flight because it was overbooked. I think the boarding process could have been a little more efficient. The staff are amazing as always which is why PAL is my preferred airline when traveling to and within Philippines."
Cons: "Since I have pretty broad shoulders, it’s difficult to sleep in the isles. Not to mention the multiple babies crying. Outside of that, everything was wonderful."
Pros: "Business class from Bangkok to San Francisco was good overall, especially for $1400 one way. Food was not very good for business class, was more in line with JAL, EVA, Korean or ANA econo class but again, for the price, no complaints. Great friendly service, quick boarding. Priority Pass didn't have a lounge in Manila but thankfully, Philippines Air had their own lounge with great food and drinks for 1st Class and Business class ticket holders. Plane from BKK to Manila was NICE and comfy, all latest technology with beautiful fully adjustable chairs that lay flat. Would fly with them again!"
Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."
Pros: "Flights to Manila and Denpasar were fine."
Cons: "During the long 15hour layover to Bali, lunch and dinner vouchers were provided as long as you stay in the terminal. However, if you decide to leave the terminal, you had to relinquish the vouchers. No access was given to use the Mabuhay lounge and there’s not much options for rest or entertainment at Terminal 2."
Pros: "Flight itself was good"
Cons: "Delay left me with back pain in business lounge. The chairs were really uncomfortable for long stay and left me jet lagged"
Pros: "Most of the flight was excellent. The food was really good, the seats were comfortable and I got sleep easily. The cabin crew was excellent. No words to say about that. The inflight entrainment was the best. The IFE improved a lot. Overall a really good experience indeed"
Cons: "The flight was 1.5 hours late and when we were supposed to board I was told that the plan hadn't even left Manila. This was at 9PM at night. There was no notice given so we arrived at the airport on time only to wait for almost 2 hours. PAL has a monopoly on the route and charges almost $100 for a 45 minute flight. I understand the pricing but not notifying passengers when a flight is going to be that late simply reflects a lack of concern on the part of PAL."
Pros: "Normal flight. It was fine"
Cons: "The transit lounge was awful. Only water available & only 1 ladies toilet. Very crowded & noisy. The staff sat outside the lounge talking & did nothing about what was going on inside the lounge. Needs alot of attention"
Pros: "Up to date and WORKING entertainment system. Ample charging options. Business class seat operation a little cumbersome and complex, but fully reclining"
Cons: "Came down with flu right after flying, again! Most likely sources are passaenger poor hygiene, poor cleaning practice between flight and poor air recirculation with inadequate filtration...hope to fix those things one day"
Pros: "Other than a crew member that was quite rude all else was ok"
Cons: "Flight attendant was quite rude and snippy... all other crew members were just fine"
Pros: "The airport exclusive for PAL, smooth landing."
Cons: "The leg room was too tight , the seats look dirty and old. They run out of choice of food, so they keep on apologizing that you don’t have a choice. But take what ever they have."
Pros: "Once you got on the plane, the flight crew themselves were great."
Cons: "There was nothing about the airport and transfer experience to like. Going: The transfer from terminals was near impossible to figure out. There was no help and no signs to assist. Coming: They allowed us to transfer to the international terminal where we were made to wait 8 hours OUTSIDE the terminal area. There were few seats, it was cold and NO food venders. Will NEVER fly into Manilla again."
Cons: "By the time the food got to us (and we weren't in the wayyyy back) all that was left was fish! Needless to say, I didn't eat much :("
Pros: "I like the hot meals and cold drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment. Very limiting to those who are low in their mobile's batt supply. You should have with you an earphone or headphone. Planes wifi not responding."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats are very tight and the only bathrooms were completely at the end of the aircraft."
Pros: "Flight from SFO to Manila was fine. On time without delay. Once we landed in Manila, our connecting flight was delayed. We were stuck at Manila international airport and not allowed to leave after coming through immigration! 8 hours in a terrible airport with no proper restaurant or bar! Only snack and coffee shops. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so that we could have at least gone into town."
Cons: "8 hour delay Being stuck at airport unable to leave Lack of a sit down restaurant or bar"
Cons: "Better signage at the airport for those that already checked in online. I waited in the long line since the signs were obscure."

Cons: "Personnel were not listening to situation and issues that would be affecting passengersdespite taking to supervisor."
Pros: "It was cheap. The seats were ok. Flight attendant made me a special vegetarian tray, really appreciated that."
Cons: "Very no frills. Very old airplane. Only 1 tv screen in the front of the airplane, no individual tvs. Bathroom got very dirty by the end of the flight, trash bin overflowing. Food was inedible."
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Not Satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Friendly staff; value for the money"
Cons: "Boarding procedures not very organized"
Pros: "Price was great and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "All food and even water cost money. The check in line took extremely long. The seat was not padded enough so I was sitting on a lump the whole trip"
Cons: "Check the general volume off their audio system (recorded voice messages/info/guideline) for the passengers on the plane. It was too loud."
Pros: "All the crew were super pleasant and friendly despite attending to very rude European passengers."
Cons: "Keep up the excellent work!"
Cons: "Want to have a USB charging port on a seat"
Cons: "Boarding is a fiasco with cebu pacific they should try zones and separate lines like japan!"
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Stop charging passengers for water."
Cons: "Improve on the congestion of DVO"
Pros: "Crew was professional and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "It is almost a given that most domestic flights to Manila are delayed and our flight was 1 hour and 10 min delayed. Fortunately, I was getting frequent updates that helped with the planning on when to leave for the airport."
Pros: "I enjoyed the captains announcements"
Cons: "Typical one hour delay due to manila traffic...does this airline every depart or arrive on time?? Nooooo! Boarding was a cattle call as usual its a stampeed. The new 321 aircraft is crammed like cattle car, no legroom and a backpack can barely go under the seat....no recline so very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Its a cheap airline.what do u expect?"
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "Be ontime"
Pros: "Nothing much. The flight crew were ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Boarding and departure lounge area was utter chaos because the Cebu Pacific staff were not clear about which flight waa boarding. The plane was horribly cramped. Extra seat rows had been installed to get more seating on the plane. That might be ok for the average 5'4" Filipino, but at 6'1", I literally could not fit my knees behind the seat in front of me. As a result I had to twist my legs into an uncomfortable position for 2 hours. Not fun."
Pros: "Boarding was organized if there is such a thing in the philippines, but at least they tried. Iloilo airport is very nice and allows more room than manila fiasco. The flight for once left early and arrived early and low and behold we had a jetway and no bus!! Luggage was off in record time"
Cons: "No recline on seats and cramming too many in to such narrow rows..its worse than a new york city bus in the 70s."
Cons: "I had the fattish person next to me who had most of his body in my seat."
Cons: "The delay of my flight was not acceptable."
Pros: "I was sleepless getting on the flight, so I slept most of the way. I didn’t buy the in-flight food since I wasn’t hungry."
Pros: "When we got to Manila, it was raining so bad. We had to get off the plane onto a bus. They handed us an umbrella to keep dry from the deluge. It was much needed, under the circumstances."
Cons: "Because of the weather delay, I made it by the skin of my teeth to my next flight. It was quite stressful waiting for my baggage to come out so I could re-check in to my next destination."
Pros: "Was kindly moved to exit row after inquiring at checkin..very nice agent. Very comfortable and great legroom...unlike the hideous crammed in rows behind. Boarded early wjich is unusual for this airline to ever be on time...then sure enough 30 min delay due t9 manila traffic?? This country needs a new major airport or updated traffic control and another runway! This pilot had the smoothest landing...the last few flights have been awful landings, hard and scary"
Cons: "Unsmiling flight attendants...what has happened? The ladt two flights ver sober looks, never smile?"
Cons: "I didn't like everything"
Pros: "The timing of the Cebu Pacific flight from Bali to Manila was fantastic. Short immigrations lines in Bali and upon arrival in Manila. Seats were better than expected, although we paid extra for the 2nd row. Crew was professional."
Cons: "We pre-ordered food and it was soggy and over cooked. Not worth it. Flight left late. Flight attendants were not helpful,"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants on the plane were very good very sweet very attentive. I also enjoyed the fact that we got a free meal without a ticket."
Cons: "The service at the airports for your company was abysmal to say the least. The fact that I had to pay over $100 for my bag to be checked was absolutely ridiculous. The personnel for Cebu Pacific at the Denspar airport were borderline hostile, racially discriminating and nasty. If you’re airport employees were half as good as the in-flight attendance I would fly with your company again as of right now you couldn’t pay me to get on your airplane."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Hidden fees..Baggage fees are ridiculous..Just skip this airline,and pay the extra for,Philippine,Air..The price is really the same"
Pros: "They are very accommodating ."
Cons: "They are not on time. They are always late like other plane."
Cons: "Line for check-in was terrible. Wait was more than 45 minutes just to check in."
Pros: "Early and on time"
Cons: "The Allocation of 5 kg per customer for the check in was too small, and they didn’t have an option to upgrade or increase"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "Worst seats I have ever sat in, took a red eye out of Dubai and the cabin lights were on for over half the flights."
Cons: "We have travelled 3 times in 2 weeks by Cebu Pacific and all flights were delayed and NOBODY gave us an announcement"
Cons: "No food, no check in luggage but extra fee, no movies, no , no blanket."
Cons: "Flight time was changed from Sunday 6pm to Monday 4am! No space between rows on the flight to Singapore, EXTREMELY incomfortable!"
Pros: "Flight was ahead of time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Horrible experience.. Will never fly this airline"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were delayed by 2+ hours"
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "we had a very tight connection from landing in Manila to catching our flight to El Nido. Cebu's team lead us through the check in process to expedite and save time and even ordered a special shuttle bus for us to take between terminals at the airport. I was very impressed and will be telling everyone I know how great Cebu is."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "We boarded the plane just on time. I wasn't expected ot would be that food."

Cons: "Our flight was 1 hr late!"
Pros: "I'm so sick of this HORRIBLE Airline,. I could not check in online and even called them, they said oh SORRY SIR ,( TYPICAL ) AND WANTED ME TO PAY $595 for my bags on a $290 one way ticket,. Never AGAIN WILL I FLY THESE IDIOTS AIRLINE"
Cons: "I like my choice to fly another airline and that I'm able to deny payment for the flight thru my Credit Card,. ASIANA airlines for $300 and bags included"
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "a bit of a delay"
Cons: "The gate on our boarding pass initially indicated E4 and it was changed to E2 without any notification. The gate was not manned by any airline staff and only the assigned gate had bathrooms. Basically, you have to hold your bodily functions in the general waiting area at the Jakarta airport. Flight was supposed to depart at 12:30pm and a gate change was announced at midnight. We had to move to another part of the terminal, Gate D6 I believe and had to go through security check again. Another badly managed budget airline."
Cons: "In addition to lack of communication of any updates from the staff"
Pros: "very cheap fare"
Cons: "noisy co-passengers, the crew should ask them to stay quiet but they didn't do anything"
