Cons: "Seat adjust buttons difficult to use"
Pros: "Crew very helpful and gave extra care."
Cons: "Soup was too salty."

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: "Better choice of foods"
Cons: "Those of us in Biz Class had to be on the same bus out to plane on tarmac. No real priority boarding. Would be better to provide transport for BC out to plane first. Only aspect of trip I found unpleasant."
Pros: "Little less food."
Pros: "Im tall so as usual the leg room was difficult but that is every flight im on"
Cons: "Traveling with kids we paid the higher price for a supposely non-stop flight (other better airlines were cheaper with 1 stop). In reality, it made a refueling stop in Guam. This was not disclosed when we bought the tickets. We got an email the morning of the flight telling us the arrival was delayed by one hour still nothing about a stop. We found out when we were checking in at the airport. Then, while stop on Guam, we got email saying the flight is 2 hours late! WTF"

Pros: "everything was perfect"
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."

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: "All is helpful"
Cons: "Make the plane clean..."

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: "Clean and new plane"

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."

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"
Cons: "Why do we have to pay for the smallest snacks? On a 4 hour flight??"
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: "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."

Pros: "On time. Organized boarding. Roomy seats"
Pros: "Thank you for the great services."
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.""
Cons: "REPEATING THE WORST EVER. While booking I tried to buy luggage allowance. Impossible.

Click.""
Pros: "Can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Unforeseen luggage charges that were way too expensive. Would not have flown the airline had I realized they charged for luggage on international flights. The charge was about $150, for the same luggage I brought with me for free on two prior international flights that were part of the same trip, on much better airlines for about the same ticket price. I could have tolerated a charge of $50, but I found $150 to be outrageous. Seats were narrow, legs hit the back of the seat in front. No need for such a configuration, since the flight was only 1/3 full. I won't fly Cebu Pacific again. Congratulations, you lost my business."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The entire process was a breeze"
Pros: "I like it because I arrived in Hong Kong earlier than the time we expect. So well done!"
Pros: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight twice. But still late."
Pros: "Clean plane nice space"
Cons: "Too much late ! Delay for 45 minutes"
Pros: "Nice and friendly crew and on-time arrival and departure - big difference from my past cebu pacific experiences where flight attendants were unprofessional, mean/impatient to older and foreign passengers, and delays were always expected."
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."
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: "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"
Cons: "Delay Delay Delay"
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"
Pros: "Actual flight wasn’t bad."
Cons: "I spent 2 hours on the baggage drop queue even though there weren’t that many people in front of me. Airline shouldn’t offer web check-in if they’re going to take ages interviewing each passenger. Gate changed three times so it was chaos for all the flights involved. Plane left an hour 15 after scheduled take-off. No apology extended."
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."
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: "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: "I always like the flight attendants. The staff at Air Asia was great in helping me book an alternative flight because of flight delays from China."
Cons: "The flights are always delayed."
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: "No hassle checking in"
Cons: "The seat was a little unc"
Cons: "We had fallen asleep right before food service, and were not even attempted to be served lunch,, I woke up soon after to see everyone else eating, yet the attendents were of course busy, and simply passed us, In us carriers, the attendent would pay attention and ask us a few minutes later if we wanted food. This could have been improved, as I didnt feel comfortable asking, there were 2 of us, not just one so we went hungry"
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!!"
Pros: "I was with my girl"
Cons: "Flight delayed,then when we boarded the plane,we waited to lift off for 1 hour and 15 minutes.Other than that everything else was convenient."
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "No customer service. very hard to contact. Airline will nickel and dime you on everything. Very difficult to make changes. Once checked in, you can't make changes unless you call, but hard to get through. Always a delay."
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."
Pros: "Staff at the checkin counter were very polite and very reassuring - although as I checked in they didn't mention that the flight would be delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation."
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: "flight schedule was a disaster. from 230pm-545pm-730pm and finally departs 10pm. due to cancelled flights and delays, there's only one boat travelling from caticlan to boracay. we reach the hotel around 5am. same thing when we fly back 430 hours delay. I'm not going to book airasia anymore and tell my friends not to book airasia."
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"
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."
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: "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."
Pros: "I got a call a few weeks ahead to say my flight time had been changed to a half hour ahead of schedule. That was nice for a heads up."
Cons: "However, it's a good thing we arrived at the airport 4 hours in advance (had nothing else to do...) because our flight was actually 2 hours ahead of schedule. Also, we sat on the tarmac for an hour. This was to be expected though, because it's manila."
