Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."

Pros: "Clean and very good service."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."
Pros: "The space, the courtesy of the staff, the food. Loved the noodle breakfast."
Cons: "Could not understand the announcements ... what a thing to "complain" about. Could not choose out seats online."
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."

Cons: "food can always be better but overall ok"

Cons: "They need to smile and respect the passengers"
Cons: "Don't delay"
Pros: "Seats are alright... good thing I don’t have a seatmate so I have a little bit more room to move."

Pros: "Reverse herringbone seating is always one of my business class seating favorites. The crew was quick and efficient. We arrived on time for both the outgoing and return flights."
Cons: "Food was lacking. Our outgoing flight had much better food than our return. For example, they provided two or three snack options on the outgoing flight. They only had an asian soup for our return. Since we left at 1:00 am, I slept through the dinner and woke up about six hours later quite hungry."
Pros: "flight attendants were very sweet."
Cons: "Food, late both from and back ways."
Cons: "Great service and got back earlier than expected."
Pros: "It’s tough to make a 15 hour flight in coach very pleasant, but with the seats and entertainment system in the 777, it was really fine. I recently took a 6 hour flight on Wow airlines in a A320 and the seats were terrible and no entertainment. The Cathay flight, though it was more than twice as long on the air, was much more pleasant."
Cons: "I wasn’t crazy about the meals on the flight. A choice of chicken or pork was pretty limiting, at least for me. The plane did have a snack area which was open throughout the flight, which was good."
Pros: "The very nice lady at Hong Kong station who checked me in was kind enough to give me an upgrade when the flight was full."
Cons: "The food on Cathay still has not improved compared to other airlines'"
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room"
Cons: "Cabin crew did not offer much service. No coffee, tea or water offered."
Pros: "Cleanliness and no disruptions"
Cons: "The crew were slow to clear the food trays"
Pros: "On this trip being able to sleep huge a huge benefit"
Cons: "The plane couldn’t take off on time. Delayed arrival at HK and our connecting flight didn’t want to wait for us."
Pros: "Other than loading and lack of information, the in-flight service was world class."
Cons: "Four travelers were seated in 4 different areas on flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco flight. Three of us of us were senior citizens. Two had disabilities and were.not accommodated in any way by Cathay Pacific (CP) while loading in the four areas of the plane. Those of us that we're physically able could not help those with mobility issues because of the proximity of the seating, I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well. I traveled internationally to Asia three times now on CP and the first two were excellent. In the past had had flown other carriers on out trips to asia. This experience on this flight was beyond bad. I had plan on several more trips to Asia the next three years, and I will say that at this point, I will not fly CP again. Something needs to change. A call to me is in order. I witnessed several gaps in CP systems and other issues with training the staff. Your survey did not specify the flight crew. Except for the loading issues and the lack of information about Customs being.closed at SF, the service was world class...what I had come to expect from CP"

Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Boarding and staff"

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."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Lots of movie selections."
Cons: "Only serving tea and coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Transfer is excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "Checking in from Manila was excellent. The staff was nice and accommodating. The food was good. The flight was on time."
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: "Excellent condition of Aircraft"

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: "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."

Cons: "entertainment non-existent for business class, or for my row (row 1). flight only 2.5 hours so no big deal, but entertainment on longer flight would have been a problem (no personal screen) suggest something like a competitor airline does (american company name, begins with "U"). use on-board wi-fi and we stream in entertainment onto our personal devices...."
Pros: "Lay over too long"
Pros: "Never rebooted entertainment after it shut off until we were ready to land and left it in boarding mode"

Pros: "The plane itself was very clean and well maintained"

Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead.

Pros: "Great service, comfortable aircraft, and pleasant staff. Would use them again!"
Cons: "Wish they would have warned us that we would be on lock down in the terminal at Manila when we went through security early. Cause we had to wait by the gate for 6 hours in a terminal that didn't have much else. Upstairs of Terminal 2 had no accommodations or restaurants/cafes. Just food stands. Still not bad though, would have been a nice warning though."

Pros: "I like the level of professionalism compared to Cebu Pacific."
Cons: "Except for one woman crew on my CGY-CEB flight, I don't like her. I tried my best to get that seat even with the very slow internet connection, and here comes that row was under repair. I asked her to give me the same window seat and not back row. She seems to ignore my request. Although I got the free seat on Exit Row, I feel bad how she ignores me. Overall, Philippine Airlines is still far better than Cebu Pacific."
Pros: "Drink and snack service on a short flight. Great flight crew and comfortable plane."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed"

Pros: "They gave extra fried chicken, in addition to the meals on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late and they made no accommodations for that fact. I had to rely on my wits the kindness of my connecting Airline and my ability to run across 5 terminals to make it. They did not even give me the correct time as to when their flight was scheduled to arrive. They were off by an hour"
Pros: "comfortable plane, nice crew, on time"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful. Food was enjoyable."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Got worse as hours went by. Business class in front of my seat sat empty the entire trip. I understand everybody cannot be upgraded but I paid extra for aisle seat and extra leg room. Maybe passengers that paid extra for seats could get an upgrade when available? It would have been a nice treat to be able to sit in a seat that was actually comfortable. I guess the padding gets worn down from all the passenger travel an that's understandable but for passengers with 13-15 hr trips, sleeping isn't an option really and the seats are just not soft enough. Perhaps a nominal $100 upgrade fee when seats are empty in business class? I'm assuming the reason business was empty is it's just too expensive? Maybe a price adjustment is in order rather than letting those seats sit empty? Overall, the flight was a pleasant experience. The seat situation was just a blemish on the trip. I will continue to use Philippine Airlines though probably in the future. Thank you."
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing made me felt safe to fly."
Cons: "Flight attendant pay more attention and nicer to foreigners than filipino passengers."
Pros: "Loved the cuisine. I had the beef and rice dinner and it was probably one of the best airplane meals I've ever had."
Cons: "The seating arrangement was a bit weird. All of us were crammed into the back of the plane, and the middle front seating area was wide open. We all could have used a bit more space since it was an overnight flight and most of us just wanted to sleep."
Cons: "Middle seat for 15 hours was tough. Otherwise flight was fine."
Pros: "it was nice flying with philippine airlines , just the laid over was very long , 8 hrs.."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very tiny seats, tough for a westerner."
Cons: "No entertainment, no place to plug in devices, extremely uncomfortable. The worst part was the Dixie cup of water served. Really?!? A bottle or larger cup would have broke the bank? Was so thirsty by the time we landed even though I had the attendants bring me water three times."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Got upgraded to first class, there wasn’t any TVs but it was only an hour long flight. Staff was also really nice"

Cons: "Bad ticketing system. Too narrow seat position. Crews are using too strong perfume. Bad altitude changing. Overally it was worst experience in my life."
Pros: "Good value for the money. Flight crew was young and exuberant, very willing to make the passengers journey as comfy as possible. Surprised an inflight meal and two checked bags were included in my fare. Other international carriers would have charged extra! Hope this Korean Air economy carrier sticks around. Hope to fly them again!"
Cons: "The plane was on the old side with worn seat cushions. Not the most comfy for long haul flights. No pillows, blankets or inflight entertainment. Do bring your own blanket or jacket and do not forget the snacks!"

Pros: "Service and crew"
Cons: "It was a older plane with very little legroom. I’m 5’7”"
Pros: "We were actually on Korean Air, not Jin Air due to our change in schedule. Korean Air staff in Hanoi were truly excellent. They even followed thru so that staff in Seoul assisted us with our connection. We were very impressed. Korean Air's flight attendants have always been professional and courteous. The level of service is superior to most airlines we've used."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Ancient plane! It still has ashtray!"
Cons: "Please indicate in bold print which airline you check in with if two or more are listed! Due to the ambiguity on our reservation we nearly missed our flight. Many other passengers on this flight had the same problem."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to be a direct flight but we end up stoping at Hongkong. We were on the plane for over 12 hours instead of 5 hours and 20 mins."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Good for a short hop from Korea to Japan"
Pros: "I paid for Korean air tickets only to realize I got cheap flight on Jin air. I puposely paid more for a real airline. Not some tiny seat budget airline that can't even serve a proper meal. This is the last time I buy on kayak!"

Cons: "No entertainment and the food is few and no other choice for free drinks"
Cons: "Delay from Japan to Korea 7 hours."

Cons: "Very tight on legroom."
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "I could only check-in 2 hours before hand and that annoyed me because it's very stressful to check-in that close to departure and get through security and customs.

Cons: "It was quite late"
Pros: "It was awesome"
Pros: "IT was ok"

They did allow her access to a short cut through the terminals; however she had collapsed, broke her watch, cover to the cell phone, injured both legs and right arm. She kept yelling for help and no one arrived, she managed while in intense pain to get up make her flight. When she arrived in Bangkok she went immediately to the Emergency Room and received treatment. I am appalled at the indifference of the members of the boarding crew that didn't offer assistance to my wife."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight at all, food was ok. Lucky that I got bump to prestige otherwise I will have comment on seat as well"
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours Staff not accomodating Staff dressed unprofessionally"
Pros: "I would not use Gin Air in the future. Will stay with Koran Air."
Cons: "Nothing was good about the flight. Sub standard . Transfer was not good either."
Cons: "Almost everything. Jin boarding system is suck. They can't give me the boarding pass for the transit flight and they don't know what should I do when I am going transit. This is even more frustrating when the flight is delayed and you have 1 hour of international flight transiting. Food is cool and tasteless. I won't fly with Jin air ever again. I would say that after all these years of at least 70000 miles of air traveling. This is the WORSE of my experience."
Cons: "No movies, one small snack, this was a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer internationally and domestically in the USA, and flown multiple airlines but have never ever felt offended by a flight crew until my return flight to the US from Clark airport in the Philippines scheduled to depart on 1-13-2016 at 11:55pm. The cabin flight stewardess in her navy blue top and jeans asked me to sit down when she saw me standing at the front of the plane while the plane was cruising. There was no turbulence at that time, the seat belt sign was off and the captain did not announce a need to stay seated with the seat belt on. I explained that my back and left leg hurts so I needed to stretch, shake it off and stand. She insisted that I sit for my safety. I did not argue because I did not want to cause trouble. Then I asked her for the toilet which was behind her, hidden as she keeps the curtain pulled around the toilet and galley. She directed me to the tail of the plane when I am seated at #28B at first row at the front of the plane, 4-5 steps away from me. She kept still, standing in front of the toilet until I walked away to the back of the plane. Again, I did not complain nor argue. I thought to myself that maybe the front toilet if off limits to passengers. Then later when I returned to my seat, I watched all other passengers who appear of her same race and talked same language as hers, pull the curtain covering the toilet and galley, use the toilet and get drinks from her freely. I felt very offended that I was not allowed to use this toilet as every one else have and did not receive the same friendly service as those passengers. I wanted to keep to myself about this but I realized I was treated unequally. So I told her that I was offended that she directed me to the back of the plane to use the toilet while everyone else used the front of the plane toilet. I also told her I felt I was not treated equally and felt very hurt. She kept apologizing after I explained how I feel but her apology does not take away the fact that I was treated differently and unequally. I advised her that she should not treat her passengers as if we are ignorant of flying, of our rights and of flying etiquette. She kept apologizing every time she passes by me throughout the flight but this did not ease my feelings at all. This was the last blow to my dissatisfaction with this trip beginning with the 2-hour flight delay. With many other airlines flying to Clark airport in the Philippines, I choose not to fly Jin Air again. In fact, I already booked with another airline today for my next trip with my family in 6 months for a wedding. I will not recommend Jin Air to everyone I know."

Pros: "For a 6 hours flight there should be some form of in flight entertainment. There was nothing. It also took over an hour to board and we were delayed to our connecting flight by 30 min and almost didn't catch our second flight."
