Cons: "If you are transiting flying with kids- avoid this carrier like plague. My 10 year old threw up- had air sickness while take off and they offboarded us saying they will keep us for observation. We didn't realize that we would not be able to get tickets on the next flight as it was sold out and the ground staff would want to fleece us for fare difference etc etc. I was traveling alone with 2 kids in a foreign country where I had never beem before and the airline ground staff were horrible. I went through hours or stress and eventually when I broke down in stress they accomodated me on the next flight. I wouldn't recommend traveling with this airline if you are traveling alone with kids."

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."

Cons: "checkin was a nightmare. over an hour and a half to get bags checked and boarding passes. It seemed like every time there was an issue all the staff would stop what they were doing to see what the issue was. nearly missed my scheduled boarding time. Good thing our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours. guess I can't complain too much for a budget airline. Just sucks that bag checkin and delays took longer than our actual flight."
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.""

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The entire process was a breeze"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Don't expect to get more into your hand carry than 7kgs. They weigh it at check in. Hand carry allowance should be more than just 7kgs."
Cons: "It’s 4hrs flight and they didn’t even offer not a free water you have to pay for food ? This is international flight for crying out loud. It’s not worth for what you pay for worst airline ever."
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: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight twice. But still late."
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.

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."

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: "Value for money"
Cons: "Seats could be better"

Cons: "Some flights attendent need to be more friendly and smile a little more"
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: "Price was OK, perfect timing, kind staff."
Cons: "Flight was delayed (as most of Air Asia flights)"
Pros: "It was only a 50 minutes flight and the cabin crew were very nice , the seats were leather and all in all very comfortable"

Pros: "I guess sometimes it's cheaper than other airlines"

Pros: "Nothing. There’s nothing to like on air Asia. I don’t understand how they won best low cost airline. But lol, it can’t even properly fit a 175cm/62kg man."
Cons: "The flight was on time. The food was disgusting. Ordered chicken adobo and it came in a form that I guess even a dog won’t eat it! Even my cat food looks much better, and it has the sauce. Their adobo missed the... adobo sauce. Flew twice with them but nah. Not gonna do it again. And I’ve got more than 10 low cost companies. Cebu too. And all European low costs. Cebu, is much much better than airasia. At least their food is delicious and you have enough space."
Pros: "Just Point to Point, Nothing Else."
Cons: "Ground Staff and Cabin Crew needs training on Proper handling of guests. Just saying.. Theres a better way of herding cattle at check-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: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "Some food that we bought taste good"
Pros: "It was just a one hour flight but no complimentary dribks seved."

Pros: "I appreciated the boarding speed in the heat on both ends of the trip."
Cons: "This airline is a complete joke They have NO IDEA what customer service is Three of us had to rebook an earlier flight, same day as original ticket... NO REIMBURSEMENT, had to pay for three more tickets They broke a fragile purchase and said, too bad. Again, zero compensation. Fly with CEBU AIR!!!!!"
Pros: "Check in was fast, crew was helpful, provided meal in airport for long flight delay"
Cons: "The airlines was great overall. Friendly staff, clean planes. My complaint, albeit a minor one, was that they didn't offer any type of free snack or drink. Most American airlines offer this and it's expected from most foreign passengers. Secondly, our plane was delayed about 5 hours for "traffic congestion" at Manila Airport. It looks like they only have one plane that travels the Puerto Princessa to Manila route so keep that in mind if you need to be somewhere on time. Philippines Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air had multiple planes coming and going durongbthis delay. I saw not a single AirAsia plane durong this delay. They sent an update email about a week or so that the flight was being moved up 2 hours, but no text saying that the flight was delayed. We could've spent an extra half day in El Nido if we had known. But still, I would probably fly with then again."
Cons: "our flight is 2x delayed."
Pros: "everything was ok"
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."
Cons: "Deleted flight"
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "The plane was late for 1.5 hours!! We almost missed our next flight from the same company ant the staff didn't want to help us at all to get to the next flight no matter how much we asked them. Unbelievable!!!"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours without any informations ..."
Cons: "flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "I tried to cancel my reservation, no refunds, no changes and no cancellations. Lost all my $400 for nothing. I would not recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Air Asia said, my ticket was refunded back to my account, I called my card company and talked to the air Asia crew teller at the airport's counter at the same time. My card said, my purchased went through successfully but air Asia at Manila airport didn't understand that! My parents went home straight front the airport frustrated!! So I had to purchased another plane tickets with anothe airline, and now they're enjoying Macau and Hong Kong!! I will not give you my business ever again and my whole family. :( P.s I even got a flight reminder email on 1/22/16 and their flight with you was supposedly yesterday 1/28/16. -not a happy customer-"
Pros: "Not much but the flight crew was alright."
Cons: "I've taken AirAsia twice on my travels in the Philippines, one of the times, the flight was very very delayed.The other, they changed the flight time 2 hours AHEAD of schedule and made that flight the last flight out for a day. Called the customer service hotline and they have terrible customer service, did not really come up with any solutions and I was placed on hold numerous times for a very long time. I ended up having to wait until the next day to get on a flight, which made me lose a day at my other destination."

Pros: "Friendly staff and plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours returning from Palawan"
Cons: "Delayed flights. no compensation for customers that had to pay more for hotels Bec of their delays. no considerations"
