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: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."

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."
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: "Plane was 3+ hours late to depart from San Francisco to San Diego on Christmas Eve. Flight attendants could have been much friendlier. Although it didn't apply to me, I didn't like the manner in which the heavyset female flight attendant asked people to store their items under their seats as we were arriving in San Diego. She was very grumpy. Not polite. No smile. Very bossy. Her poor attitude was definitely not necessary. Alaska can do a lot better."
Cons: "I didn't like that all of the shades for the windows were down for the whole flight. It's too many hours in the dark. We took off at noon and spent the entire flight in the dark. Too many hours in the dark. Then land when night time. More darkness. With flight and wait till sun rise it's like 26 hours of darkness."

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: "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."

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: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."

Pros: "Friendly filipino airport staff and PAL stewardess are friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Very long que at HK immigration"
Cons: "There are no rock or metal selections for music on the entertainment system."
Cons: "#philippineairlines is one of the worst airline. Let's start with the moronic airport system where you have to go the security 3time and then your not allowed to bring water in the airline? They keep mentioning that is the US Dept of Homeland security guidance but Philippines is the only place I travelled with this stupidity. Then they gave you water while waiting and a bottle cap is considered a security hazard? Come on. The airline has few open seat at the first and business class, I offered to buy and told me that it'll cost $1000 and the plane is not even full! #philippineairlines is willing to have empty seats rather getting some needed cash. The flight attendant are so uptight and would give you attitude when ask for assistance...this is a customer service industry, if you don't want to be at your workplace then leave. The plane is old and no entertainment offer."
Cons: "The food on both flights was pretty disgusting. And I was never given the option to order a diabetic meal."
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Cons: "The crew ran out of meal choices for those in the back rows. Then there were no hot towels again for everyone in the back rows. There were no apologies for running out of hot towels even when it was asked about."
Pros: "arrived early"
Cons: "1. i was unable to check-in online. PAL now only allows online check-in on fares bought on PAL website 2. gate was changed, i did Not receive notification via email nor PAL app. 3. Boarding was a little disorganized, it was hard to hear the gate crew, 4. not enough new streaming movie options 5. the meal was only warm 6. long wait at baggage claim"
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: "Efficient airline, on time, easy enough check-in and airport processing"
Cons: "Barebones, no Wi-Fi on plane and no entertainment of any type"

Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow."
Pros: "The food was better."
Cons: "The flight got delay for 1 hour."
Cons: "The flight was delay for 3hours,the airline did not give us any updates during the delay,also nothing was offered to us(customers) in return for their delay."
Cons: "need better control in boarding...passengers that were called to board at the very beginning couldn't get to the front of the line because everybody is already in line. Need to advise passengers that boarding is based on seating assignments and enforce it."
Pros: "The crews are nice."
Cons: "The plane was shaking and gave me nauseas"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight with professional staff. The ground crews did a great job in both locations!"
Cons: "leg room is always a challenge."
Pros: "Smiling crew members"
Pros: "The movie selection was good which made the 14 hour flight bearable. The flight crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed until the following morning which reduced our trip by a day so we lost money on our hotel for a night. The airline didn't automatically adjust our connecting flight so had to call and make the adjustments. Also, it was really hard to check our flight information online since we went through a third party to book the flights. It's like they don't communicate with each other so neither seemed to be able to release the information to us."
