The flight is on time unlike my previous flights/vacations
Unfortunately when I went to check-in they couldn't find me in the system and I wasn't showing a reservation. The Airline crew was great and allowed me to board but I had to wait 30 minutes for them to get approval even though I had my electronic ticket and I had paid for the flight
Everything was really good, actually first time flying with PAL and it was great.
Pros: "Leaving the gate early, and take off right on time, landing early and at the gate right on time: amazing!"
Cons: "The crew is enforcing strictly the rule that the "forward seats" need to pay extra, even though entire rows are empty... No exception for any reason."
Pros: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in for flight was not very good. Counter help was not well informed/trained."
Cons: "Food smooth"
Pros: "Since I was upgraded to business class for free due to overbooking, there really is nothing I didn’t like! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!"
Cons: "The dual headphone jack at my seat designed for use with the provided headsets outputted only a constant clicking noise on the right channel, so I ended up using my own earbuds."
Pros: "Everything is superb!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The screens were all broken. There was no food or water for 10 hours and the flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Crew was great Seat could be better, recline and full bed hard to operate"
Cons: "Seat adjust buttons difficult to use"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful in assisting older women and men going to/from the toilet back to their seats."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Cons: "Food was alright but could have been better."
Pros: "The crew is totally unprofessional and uptight"
Cons: "A more professional and well trained crew"
Pros: "Short leg room"
Cons: "Better snack and more leg room"
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."
Pros: "The rest was ok."
Cons: "They broke our baggage."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful Aircraft ? Great Bad. Awesome awful. All of those. I really was to say nice things as it’s just basics that were bad"
Cons: "Business lounge ? Ummm totally unacceptable. It’s a PAYG uncomfortable Un stocked unstaffed waste. Food Was extremely basic. If economy fine but business!!! Very poor"
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: "Broken tv control and head sets x 2 wish I could have used my bose"
Pros: "Add veggie food as an option for vegetarians people"
Cons: "To cold and no veggie food"
Pros: "The seats are not that comfortable and the flight delay was very had. Food just ok."
Cons: "Delay, food, chair"
Pros: "the bnew a321neo plane. love the new business class seats for its short haul flight"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, good selection of movies (economy)"
Pros: "Help because the delay caused us to miss our next flight"
Cons: "Delay, crew didn’t prioritize us getting off the plane when they knew our situation of missing our flight. We didnt get food choice because they ran out when they got to us."
Pros: "I liked being able to have seat selection, one checked baggage and a snack, even if it was simple"
Cons: "Having to wait in the tarmac for 45 minutes.. I would ha e rather wait at the terminal where there is WiFi and more space.."
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: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"
Cons: "The lounge was terrible , the food was average in the lounge , no international magazines or newspaper, the plane was so so so , food mediocre, entertainment was not good either ,"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so tidy. They tied their hair neatly. Their smiles are warm."
Cons: "Slight delay in the flight."
Pros: "Food was warmed to my liking. Crew were professional - but a bit too rigid. I was seated with a guy that was coughing all the entire 16 hours flight and I requested to be seated somewhere else but attendant simply said they can't do anything. I asked if they can ask someone a bit younger and fit to change seat with me but crew never got back to me. In fairness, they said they'll try."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."
Pros: "Nothing terrible everything"
Cons: "Poor service, rude flight attendants, didn’t give me seat they told me they were giving me, terrible food, flight attendants run past you instead of taking their time to give people beverages."
Cons: "The choice for the movie was horrible !"
Cons: "The food, the seats, no entertainment. Old school flight!!"
Pros: "Comfortable, good selection of entertainment"
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: "Crew staff were nice and friendly"
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."
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."

Cons: "My flight lax- going mnla was very uncomfortable.. the plane was so small. No tv, movie and music.. it was an old plane of PAL.. i was upset and other passengers. But going back was better.. I'll rate them 5/10"

Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"
Pros: "On time arrival and spacious modern fleet"
Cons: "Food wasn't up to par with vegetarians"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours!! It was so frustrating!"
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.
Cons: "I will never fly with them again they tried to charge me 114 us dollars for 1 bag. I only paid 43 dollars for my ticket.."

Cons: "Seats that recline and quieter announcements especially the game"
Cons: "Check the general volume off their audio system (recorded voice messages/info/guideline) for the passengers on the plane. It was too loud."
Cons: "Want to have a USB charging port on a seat"
Pros: "The airline assigned the latest airplane to my flight. Its USB charging port was good."
Cons: "I do not know why the cabin crew provided a meal on 3 pm than much later around 5 pm. The flight arrived to the destination on 7 pm. I thought I ordered a dinner."
Cons: "Crew made robotic announcements, no spirit! No effort made to offer beverage, snacks, etc...they were the least interested group ive had on cebu pacific in a long time uuuuggh why bother?"
Pros: "Yes, the crews were super. They keep entertaining us the customers. Thanks guys"
Cons: "They should improve tge delayed flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t full so crew should have let us spread out"
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: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
Cons: "So late, I missed a 3 hour connection."

Pros: "I liked that everything was fast and easy with no issues"
Pros: "Great customer service! Checking in was very fast!"
Pros: "Nice new equipment A321 and FA always nice"
Cons: "Baording is always a cattle call, they attempt to go by rows this time but still a mess of crowding and shoving. The gate announced boarding and everyone jumped, then they tried to refuse those in line making it even worse. Poor gate agents!!! Then as always they blame manila teaffic for delays....so irritating. Almost an hour late...no reason it was sunny at both airports and this schedule is set weeks ahead and they still claim heavy traffic..ridiculous"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, landed ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too cold!!"
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: "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!"
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"
Pros: "The flight was faster than the arrival time"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Ofcourse"
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: "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: "Flight was updated with no other options at all. Original flight was cancelled and they booked us on a much later time. Supposedly, we are arriving in incheon at 8pm. With the updated booking, we are arriving at 10pm. On the day of our flight they informed us that ot would be delayed and we’ll arrive at Incheon at 12mn."
Pros: "No hassles check in"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic scramble. Take off was an hour late waiting for runway space. Cheap and disorganised."
Cons: "First we pur Cebu Pac flight to davao at 7 am was cancelled dn we book another flight to davao at 5 pm dn it was delayed it is so stressful and inconvenient specially i have a 1 year old baby boy"
Cons: "Despite baggage being checked through from HK to Davao, Cebu offloaded luggage in Manila and failed to forward."

Pros: "The view from the plane was ok. The seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Foid is terrible"
Pros: "Very efficient!i was very happy with whole flight!"
Pros: "Thank you for the great services."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "They're ok as long as you aren't taking along extra baggage!"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra half hour for about half a dozen late passengers. Seems if they are that late the plane should have left."
Pros: "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: "Very good check-in"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit. I didn’t buy anything to eat so can’t comment on that also there’s not really entertainment on board"
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "a bit of a delay"
Pros: "Our flight was comfortable and problem free."
Cons: "The only thing that was a little inconvenient was the flight was more than an hour late."
Cons: "Crew were so slow to take food orders. It wasn't free and not everyone wanted to order so I didn't see any other reason."
Pros: "This is budget no frills airline and it handles the flight pretty well. Seats are small, no entertainment or free food, but staff are very helpful."
Cons: "Check in was appalling! Queue for almost 2 hours with no control of passenger flow so one queue has 5 check in desks the other has just 2. When asked to try and arrange it more fairly the Cebu Pacific staff shrugged their shoulders didn't even smile and said "there is nothing we can do". All they had to do was direct passengers to a check in desk. It was awful service"
Clark security personnel are absolutely the worst. I was threatened by their chief of security for asking a question about what is allowed as a carry on.
Cons: "Ramp instead of stairs. Offer free drinks"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats too small for 6’ person"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and comfort was good."
Cons: "It wasn’t so much AsiaAir as it was the terminal. Terminal 4 in Manila is a mess as far as trying to check in. There isn’t enough room for the amount of flights boarding there."
Pros: "The comfort of the seat, its wider... Since I am broad shouldered I need a comfy seat."
Cons: "We just landed and the two cabin crews were chatting. One passenger stood up since she couldn't hold it and that she really needs to vomit one cabin crew laughed loud when the guest went inside the restroom. Maybe the cabin crew was surprised, but it wasn't a good to see."
Pros: "Crew at the front desk helped"
Cons: "Maybe more flights"
Cons: "not taking off hours late"
Pros: "Early boarding and arrival!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "Some flights attendent need to be more friendly and smile a little more"
Pros: "It was only an hour flight"
Cons: "Flight was late, and if you're over 6 feet, prepare to be cramped. No food or drinks."
Cons: "The connecting flight in between was not very clear during search. It was only Manila to Cebu but there was a connecting flight to Taiwan. I would have forfeited my flight if I had not brought my passport along. So the route was MANILA to TAIWAN to Cebu WHY DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SUCH A STUPID ROUTE??? AND UNLIKE OTHER TRAVEL SITES, YOURS DO NOT EMPHASIZE CONNECTING FLIGHTS VERY CLEARLY!!! Also, there was no way to cancel it. I was really disappointed in your site!"
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."
Pros: "Accommodating staff. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Delayed over a delayed flight. Overcharged price, they charged you for processing fee which is not necessary I think for the card."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Significant delays."
Cons: "Two hours late Poor communication about gate, timing with broken plane"
Pros: "I guess sometimes it's cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "There are always delays"
Pros: "Plane departed and arrived early"
Cons: "They let everyone board via the Zone 1 lane, so my wife and I, carrying a 14kg cranky 2 year old, had to line up behind a long queue of others who didn't have to pay the most expensive premium you can pay on an AirAsia flight. Nonsense."
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."
Pros: "Plane was on time.."
Pros: "No hassle checking in"
Cons: "The seat was a little unc"
Cons: "I WAS NOT INFORMED THAT I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY CHECK-IN LUGGAGE LIKE MOST DOMESTIC AIRLINES BUT WITH A LIMIT OF 15 KGS, I THOUGHT IT WAS INCLUDED IN THE FARE,"
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."
Cons: "Seating leg room service delays customer service"
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!!"
Pros: "I appreciated the boarding speed in the heat on both ends of the trip."
Cons: "Had no idea that the maximum for a checked bag was 10kgs (which is nothing if your bag is large enough to check). Having already paid to check a bag I had to fork out another $100 to check my bag (a mid-sized duffle) what a total rip-off and bummer. Then there was the drama about whether I could take my scuba regulator through security or not and then there was the drama about a tripod and then there was the flight! No food (unless you had pre-booked it) and then you had to pay for water.....a new level of low class in low class airlines."
Cons: "There was horrible warm cabin air during pre-flight takeoff. We felt nauseous because of it. On our flight back AirAsia was late for 2 hours. Horrible airline."
Pros: "The cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "BAD COMMUNICATION - The flight was delayed and they sent me an email however no details were ever updated on the screens in the terminal. Once at the airport they knew the flight was late but never updated the boarding time. I had to get up every 15 minutes to ask someone. At one point there wasn't even a jet but the screen said the flight was boarding. Boarding area is this small contained seating area in the airport with very limited food options (an issue when you sit there for hours). The plane was filthy and oddly enough you cannot bring your "own food" onboard you must buy everything onboard...even a bottle of water....which you will need have queuing on the tarmac to get on the plane. You have to pay in local currency---they won't accept a credit card. You have to board a bus, to be driven, to then walk, to then queue on a tarmac, to walk up a stairway to get on the plane. The weight restrictions on luggage are ridiculous. 7 kg allowed on cabin bags which are weighed otherwise you stand there an unpack because there is a different charge for in-person purchase of luggage versus online. Bring a shopping bag, unpack your carry-on, weigh it, get your tag (cabin baggage), walk away from the checkin country and put the items back into your carry-on. Lastly, they damaged my luggage. Note: if you use this airline, tell them you have breakable items in your suitcase and get a fragile sticker put onto all of your checked bags to keep them from being tossed like the Samsonite gorilla."
Cons: "our flight is 2x delayed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice adding up to a five hour delay. The crew gave no reason , no apology, complete lack of communication was astounding. When i mentioned it to other travel agents they all said the same thing, Air Asia is always delayed, i was told to use other airlines. Indeed, while awaiting my flight to Manilla I saw 2 Philippines Air flights depart on time. One of my fellow travellers had given themselves7 hours between flights and missed their flight to Dubai because of the delay."
Cons: "Plane left 2 hours late. Charged for carry-on Charged for water and sodas Plane was dirty"
Cons: "My sister in law was not allowed on the flight they refused to let her on the flight. I hope you did not charge my credit card. I want reimbursement if so. 1209-480-8796 James please call me"
Pros: "Tube boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "Walking ; not even a bus?"
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: "Left early, arrived early"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "Both flights delayed!"
Cons: "We flew 1hr and 45 mins delayed."
Cons: "Late but that's expected"
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
Cons: "4 hr flight delay and 1 1/2 hour on the Tarmac before takeoff! On a 1 hour flight what's there to like."
Pros: "On line check in was awesome. Was able to avoid long queues. Smooth flight. We arrived earlier than scheduled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "They charge me 70 dollars more for my bag... They said that's its only aloud 7 kilo hand bag"
Pros: "Very profesional company... Bags arrive fast everything taken care of very well organized teams"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike about air asia"
