Cons: "The ride..."
Cons: "Flight attendants skipped/didnt serve our row any drinks."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible ride was bumpy and no entertainment was provided"
Cons: "Food smooth"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule departure and arrival"

Pros: "Early departure and arrival by over 45mins ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food and lack of IFE and WiFi"

Cons: "Install seatback IFE or at least provide WiFi to access streaming content/movies/music/e-zines"
Pros: "Decent seat, plane was clean enough"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour, food was terrible"
Pros: "Was very much on time, quick flight and boarding."
Cons: "Airport is not very well organized. Airline is ok but crew did not show the importance of addressing customer service. We paid for choice seats but others got the same without paying. We should have been allowed to move to wider leg room seats since we paid."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful in assisting older women and men going to/from the toilet back to their seats."
Pros: "Good staff and inflight crew service/attitude."
Cons: "Poor IFE and snacks"
Pros: "Overall experience and the room in economy was execellent."
Cons: "Food quality needs lot of improvement"
Pros: "Fantastic onboard product in Business Class. Superb seating with all direct aisle access, excellent meals and friendly F/A's."
Cons: "I was a little concerned at the lax approach to securing the cabin for take off and landing the F/A's had. The Philippine Airlines lounge is an embarrassment for an airlines hub airport."
Pros: "Non-stop flight."
Cons: "About four hours before boarding, the gate assignment was changed from a comfortable gate with plenty of seats for passengers to another gate that was already occupied by another PAL flight that has not even boarded yet. So there were no place to sit down. Food can be so much better, especially the dessert. Crew didn't come across as happy with their job. When I asked for soda water, the serving stewardess didn't tell me that she'll give it later; she just proceeded to push the food cart, so I thought she didn't hear me since she didn't acknowledge my request. The bathroom was filthy!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor. No relatively new films . All TV programs were American. The Wi-Fi was slow at best . The crew tried hard but the attention to detail was lacking"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "No direct contact details to change flight"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Cons: "Broken entertainment acreens. Mine was broken on the way over and on the way back I had a another broken one , they moved me and that one was broken too."
Pros: "Flight took off early landed early"
Cons: "The seats obviously and the nead trolley dolly was quite rude she spoke about me to another passenger like i wasnt tgere"
Pros: "Most ofit"
Cons: "Transfers in manill"
Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "the bnew a321neo plane. love the new business class seats for its short haul flight"
Pros: "Had to upgrade to sit at the bulkhead area. Seating areas are too tight."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom smelled very bad."
Cons: "The flight was 1.5 hours late and when we were supposed to board I was told that the plan hadn't even left Manila. This was at 9PM at night. There was no notice given so we arrived at the airport on time only to wait for almost 2 hours. PAL has a monopoly on the route and charges almost $100 for a 45 minute flight. I understand the pricing but not notifying passengers when a flight is going to be that late simply reflects a lack of concern on the part of PAL."
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew was really good"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. Took over an hour and a half to just board the plane. Could have been done better. Left almost 50 minutes late because of boarding"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment movies"
Cons: "Sitting too close to other passenger"
Pros: "Gave me food after they had stop serving since I slept through the whole flight. Very nice about it."
Pros: "Nice crew. Delicious food"
Pros: "Philippines Airlines ground staff expedited our immigration and customs clearance in MNL because of a flawed system for international transfers between terminals. We would have missed our connection despite a 2 hour connection time if not for their assistance."
Cons: "Despite having our bags tagged from TPE via MNL to DXB and a 2 hour transit window in MNL, we were forced to clear immigration in MNL, claim our bags, clear customs and then pay for taxi transfer between terminals to check in again for our PR flight from MNL to DXB. At the very least Philippines Airlines should have provided transport betweeen terminals. We will NOT transit through MNL again until this is fixed."
Pros: "Fast boarding and very nice staff."
Cons: "Seats were hard to recline"
Pros: "The ipad loaded with movies and magazines"
Cons: "The food needs improvement"
Pros: "The crew was fine.I appreciated that it was non-stop."
Cons: "There was about 8" of leg room in the economy section. Not enough to move my feet around. The beef sausage breakfast was tasteless and not very warm; the eggs were watery. The movie was extremely violent. I worry about the children on board who could see it even if they couln't hear it."
Pros: "Nonstop route, and entertainment."
Cons: "The ticket was never processed! Hence, when I arrived at the airport, I was unable to actually fly. Really, really disappointing. I recommend that Kayak reconsider its association with "Flight Network Sales.""
Cons: "Everything. Truly a horrendous experience. Worst airline I've ever flown."
Pros: "I've always enjoyed the service I receive on Asian carriers. Last night was the first time I have experienced PAL. I had read some not so good reviews so I was skeptical and canceled my first booking. After looking at other options, I discovered PAL's direct flight from Los Angeles to Manila was the best option so I took a chance. From the moment I check in at the ticket counter in Los Angeles until we landed in Manila, I received exceptional service, tasty food and a clean environment. I have flown several Asian air carriers and have had great experiences on them all. PAL delivered the same experience I have come to love when traveling to Asia. I will definitely fly them again."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was not having discovered PAL before"
Pros: "The flight crew definitely took good care of us"
Cons: "1. Poor seat comfort. Very high density exactly same as with a budget airlines.2. No inseat entertainment system. 3 the worse boarding process : elites and general boarding are started simultaneously 4. Online check In is impossible:"
Cons: "Both flights, first from Guam and then to Bangkok were MISERABLY HOT. I thought the first flight was a fluke but after the second flight, I knew it's just your airplanes. Terrible. Won't book again."
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Cons: "there was no separation in the boarding process. General boarding started when announcement that elites can baord already. No blankets, no entertainment"
Pros: "No tv inside the flight"
Pros: "Philippine service is always good"
Cons: "Food not so good and small seats."
Pros: "Personnel were kind"
Cons: "the space of the seat is too narrow. the announcers can barely be heard. White bread at meals should be eliminated and whole wheat or more nutritious grains should be used."
Pros: "Earlier arrival in MNL on the return flight than expected. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Delay in flight from MNL to LAX but not really that much of an issue considering traffic in LAX on a Friday night. Online check-in was not working for the return flight to MNL on Dec 30. Was a little too strict on the check-in luggage. Should consider total weight rather than per luggage piece."
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.."
Pros: "awsome deal awsome flight"
Cons: "nothing great flight."
Pros: "the flight was comfy"
Cons: "some drinks!!!! NOT alcohol but like water or soda."
Cons: "Seats that recline and quieter announcements especially the game"
Pros: "Nothing.the cebu pacific employee told me that my flight was changed from 12pm to 6pm when I checked in but I did not have any notification. He said that he can get me in, in an earliest flight they have and only to find out that the flight they he wanted me in is my flight and ask money."
Cons: "Screen employees and make sure they don’t deceive people."
Pros: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Cons: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Stop charging passengers for water."
Pros: "Price and convenient"
Cons: "Service and flight comfort"
Pros: "I enjoyed the captains announcements"
Cons: "Typical one hour delay due to manila traffic...does this airline every depart or arrive on time?? Nooooo! Boarding was a cattle call as usual its a stampeed. The new 321 aircraft is crammed like cattle car, no legroom and a backpack can barely go under the seat....no recline so very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarded early - then sat on runway in queue almost 1/2 hour - fault of Manila airport which has more traffic than it can handle, not of Cebu"
Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
Cons: "customer service"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Lavatory was spacious. Airplane was clean."
Cons: "I know that the ground crew can’t control passengers from lining up even if it’s not their turn yet but there should be enough space for families with small kids and senior citizens to go up to the front to board ahead."
Pros: "Was kindly moved to exit row after inquiring at checkin..very nice agent. Very comfortable and great legroom...unlike the hideous crammed in rows behind. Boarded early wjich is unusual for this airline to ever be on time...then sure enough 30 min delay due t9 manila traffic?? This country needs a new major airport or updated traffic control and another runway! This pilot had the smoothest landing...the last few flights have been awful landings, hard and scary"
Cons: "Unsmiling flight attendants...what has happened? The ladt two flights ver sober looks, never smile?"
Cons: "I didn't like everything"
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: "The crew"
Cons: "Hidden fees..Baggage fees are ridiculous..Just skip this airline,and pay the extra for,Philippine,Air..The price is really the same"
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."
Cons: "Crew seemed unfriendly, many small delays . There, passengers were no allowed in galley area to use toilet, had to walk through aisle #1"
Cons: "No food, no check in luggage but extra fee, no movies, no , no blanket."
Pros: "New ish planes"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"
Pros: "The view from the plane was ok. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We were the second flight out of Manila, and the plane was 3 hours late. You have to pay for everything on the plane, even water. The terminal had to be 90 degrees."
Cons: "Horrible experience.. Will never fly this airline"
Pros: "I wish I had something to like about it."
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: "Thank you for the great services."
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."
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."
Cons: "The flight was 45 minutes late"
Pros: "We boarded the plane just on time. I wasn't expected ot would be that food."

Pros: "Late arrival of plane meant knock on problems with air traffic in manila... over an hour late ... cebu airlines ok but system poor"
Cons: "Unfortunately delays caused by late arrival of plane - 1 hr late"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "It's a budget airline so don't expect complimentary food or drinks. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "All - Competitive price and service"
Cons: "Nothing - No negative experience with CP"
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: "Airline has very strict overweight policy and will charge you even if you are a few grams above 7 kg... not nice, not friendly and left a bad taste in my mouth. I will surly try to avoid venus Pacific in the future of possible."
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: "Late leaving the gate then waited an additional 45+ minutes in a line of planes waiting to take off because NAIA is down to one runway."
Cons: "Longest lines in teh world at check in. Get your act together CEbu. No in flight entertainment."
