Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The technical aspects of the flight were fine. Boarding, the flight, and the aircraft. Very nice plane."
Cons: "The crew was not very friendly and it didn’t seem like there were enough staf for such a large plane. It took a long time to get our first meal, and the food was terrible in comparison to other flights, even other China air flights we’ve been on. We could not understand the English announcements as she was not a fluent speaker. I would probabalynavoid flying with China air again."
Cons: "The temperature inside the cabin was too hot! It was warm and hot enough that chocolate I bought at duty free before the flight was melted!!"
Pros: "Legroom, seat amenities, boarding process"
Cons: "The crew could have been a bit more attentive, especially when clearing the service. I had an armrest dining tray which was very small and snug (same for the seatbelt as well) and it was hard to move with the tray still there. Also, Iwith fruit platter for meal, they served a side of fruit!"
Pros: "Good boarding procedure. Attentive crew and good quality food even in Economy. Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "Seats were tight but the seat pitch was decent. WiFi available but very expensive."
Cons: "The food could have been more tasty and warm."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. Airline officials did not board according to zones printed on boarding pass. Arm rest in seats were locked in place and did not pivot up to allow using the adjacent empty seat."
Pros: "We have now been on both TAIWAN based carriers in the past six months. CI aircraft interiors were more visually appealing- I remember BR being too dark..."
Cons: "The temperature fluctuations of the aircraft. This is really for all airlines, usually too hot upon boarding & too cold 3hrs in... Also, no coach class amenity kit. I think BR gave us "sleeping" face masks for a similar length trip..."

Pros: "Though the boarding process for this flight had the passengers take a shuttle to board the plane, I actually preferred this, because it seemed that the process was more efficient. The crew was quick to get everyone settled and our flight departed within just a couple of minutes from the original departure time. Seemed as though it was way faster than the normal gate departures of most flights I've been on."
Pros: "Very clean and on time"
Cons: "Legroom was tight. Much less than the sfo/Tiapie leg"
Pros: "I like because they used a new aircraft."

Pros: "Overall flight was OK. Seems like a good value for the price paid."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Pros: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."

Pros: "I didn't feel crammed."
Cons: "Food was not great. No diet soft drinks."
Pros: "Ground crew check in girl was very nice and accommodating, the plane was new with power access and big entertainment screens good touch screen, food could be a little better but most airplane food is not that good. Overall a good flight."
Cons: "When the person in front of you recline their seat all the way back, you can't adjust the viewing angle of your entertainment screen. Boarding was chaotic as we were in a small gate area. That's the airport's fault though."

Cons: "My husband has quite long legs, and although I had plenty of room, he was a bit close (though not tight) in legroom."
Pros: "Beautiful plane, clean and well serviced, unlike American carriers"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour on the tarmac in Taipei with no explanation. I was told there were no aisle seats and when we finished boarding I could see that the attendant on the ground had not been truthful. I did get a bulkhead aisle seat after the doors were closed, but I would like to know the truth from service people."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful! Good was served three times over this incredibly long flight. It wasn't horrible or delicious as it is airplane food."
Cons: "Wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "well organized boarding. Crew communicated with passengers. Seat was very good. On time, even little early."
Cons: "I DIDNT GET BORDING PASSES FOT THE ENTIRE ITINERARY. THE TWO REMAINING FLIGHTS WERE INVISIBLE SO NO BORDING PASSES AND NO SEATS. THIS LED TO VERY UNLEASANT EXPERIENCE FOR THE REST OF THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "Enjoyed everything about my flight.Awesome service from the crew most welcoming.Plenty of leg room and comfortable seating.I have already recommend this airline to family and friends."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, staff was friendly. Seats were okay, fairly spacious. It was nice that they gave everyone both a blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty and the selection was terrible. I was given the same pasta for two meals (first time I had a choice, second time only pasta again). Even the same type of pasta but the second time there was some chicken in it too. It was gross."
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."
Pros: "Full range of movies. Lights down much of the flight for sleeping."
Cons: "They don't offer the long flight supply bad with eye mask, ear plugs, tooth brush etc. They don't come around often enough with water or drinks."
Pros: "The restrooms were very clean, and I appreciated that some even offered lotion. Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I felt cold during the flight from Taipei to Los Angeles. I felt warmer with my jacket and two blankets, but it would have been nice to maybe have the air conditioning lower."
Pros: "My emergency row seat"
Cons: "The food was iffy, but w/e"
Pros: "My seat was upgraded the first class so I received the first class service. It was excellent service and the flight was comfortable. Thank you for the great service."
Pros: "Good Service and very comfortable business class seat"
Pros: "Airplanes are fairly new. Everything seemed fairly clean. Movie choices were good. The staff was really accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Narrow seats in Economy. With every move, I had to be careful not to disturb the person next to me. I am a fairly skinny guy. This was quite challenging when I tried to eat. It was too easy to trigger the flight-attendant call button by accident with the touch screen. The icon is not really obvious and it is close to the screen on and off icon."
Pros: "I've been taking CI to Taiwan since I was a little kid. My flight to Seoul via Taipei was a bit uncomfortable bc the flight was fully packed and even though I had an aisle seat, the person sitting in the middle was hogging up all my space . Once I landed in Taipei and went on next flight to my destination at Seoul, that flight was much more comfortable and less people. On my return direct flight from Taipei to JFK seats were comfy and service is always attentive. I enjoy taking china airlines and can always rely on their service and clean planes"
Cons: "The new interior decoration seems outdated and gives a weird vibe."
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff. Excellent food service."
Cons: "Seats were not that good. Needs upgrading."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Pros: "I had a sudden swelling of my feet and ankles while flying to Asia.. China Airlines was very accommodating to me and had a wheel chair waiting for me at the gate... Never had this happen,,, So they were very helpful and considerate..."
Pros: "The food was excellent, service equals any other airline I've flown on and better than most. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment selection was outstanding."
Cons: "I can't think of a thing that wasn't to my liking."
Pros: "Since there is no Premium Economy class on this route, I was upgraded to business. Good, but not great experience."
Cons: "No complaints, except that the business lounge at TPE, after the very long ordeal of going through security, is out of the way. Why the lights there would be so dim is a mystery to me, but the lounge is great."
Pros: "The flight I was on was leaving at 1:45AM. It took about 15-20 minutes to check in our bags and there were about 75 people ahead of us. We didn't wait at all for TSA, just walked up and there was absolutely no line. The China airlines staff was very nice and helpful. Also, there were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free and they even provided earphones."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable but it wasn't unbearable."
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "Service, Seat, food, and movies."
Cons: "having to get up and ask for more beverages"
Pros: "The crew very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was nice, and we landed in JFK an hour earlier"
Pros: "The flights were fine. The service good. The airplanes clean."
Cons: "The food was not as good as other Asian airlines. Transferring planes in Manila is a nightmare. They performed an extensive passport check and 2 additional security checks for everyone. Took almost 2 hours. Had to be chaperoned to the next terminal. Manila airport is a disorganized mess. Not the airlines fault but be aware when transferring through Manila"
Cons: "Conduct an organized boarding procedure instead of just allowing anyone to board without making any prior announcements."
Cons: "Very dense seating. Essentially it's like a budget airlines: very dense seating, no IFE. Blankets are given only on request"
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Pros: "The food improved compare from last year but during the 16 hours and 40 minutes flight the crew should have come out and ask the passenger or offer some drinks. They only came out when then they serve the meals. It’s a long travel, they should have checks the passengers if they needed anythin"
Cons: "Checking in your luggage take too long. The staff specially the Manila, seems not well train because they keep going to each other and discuss things or asked the other crew what to do. I started checking in at 4:08 pm and I finished past 6:00. Crews should checks the passengers every now and the"
Pros: "Everything is superb!"
Pros: "Service was great, took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It’s such a shame that Philippine Airlines (PAL) charged extra for aisle and window seats! There was so much vacant seats during the flight. This was a deliberate way of PAL to extract more money from their passengers. In the future, my family and I will not choose PAL anymore. We felt cheated."
Pros: "Courteous and efficient check in counter staff and inflight crew."
Cons: "Barely edible inflight snack"
Pros: "Great Flight Crew very Pleasant"
Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice!"
Cons: "The beef with rice meal tasted weird."
Cons: "The PAL terminal in MNL is one of the worst airports in the world. PAL's in flight service is fine. But they really need to improve their terminal if they want to keep customers"
Pros: "Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances."
Cons: "Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking)."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Cons: "Flight was dalyed 1h. We were heading to siargao but went back to cebu!!!! Lost 2 h for no reason!! Thats unacceptable! Now we have paid a room in siargao for nothing. Cant skip siargao cause our next flight is from there!!!! I hate you"
Pros: "Flight was pretty smooth.. takeoffs and landing was great.."
Cons: "Crew was not trained in customer service enough.. they where walking and serving at different times..most of the times you can see them bumping at each other.."
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."
Pros: "Flight was on time; crew was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "Cabin temperature was good. Staff were excellent!"

Cons: "Not enough leg room on the small airbus we had on the Vietnam - Manila leg for someone my height ( 1.83 m )"
Pros: "The onboard crew was very professional and pleasant"
Cons: "The Transfer Desk staff lacked knowledge and was not courteous and made the transit time very difficult and very uncomfertable"
Pros: "Crews were attentive and very helpful. They were all nice and very accommodating. But please add a personal AVOD on your aircrafts. A 10 hour flight is really boring without entertainment system."
Cons: "The portion of the food was very little. And they only serve full meal once on a 10-hour flight. Snack was served 1 hour prior to arrival but was not enough as the passengers were starving already."
Pros: "nothing to really like. the crew and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "kind of hard to believe my other flight through PAL was the best I've taken. This must have been an older plane or something. No entertainment minimal leg room. Must have just been luck of the draw"
Pros: "Honestly one of the best flights I had compared to my previous flight over from Hong Kong with same airline. Plane was newer with entertainment module with a huge list of movies and shows to choose from. food was the best airplane meal I had ever had. Had no issues during baggage or boarding,"
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that checking in online was impossible because I was booked from another airline (air Canada). I wish they could co-ordinate to make online booking available even though we were booked through another airline just so we had a better choice for our seats."
Pros: "Loved that the crew boarded everyone accorsig to seat zone starting with the backmost part... enabled speedy boarding and you'd think this would be SOP but many PAL flights don't do this. Always happy with the refurbished aircraft and selection of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online due to the kind of ticket I bought. Was willing to pay for bulkhead seats but had no chance due to unavailability."
Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. Didn't realize there was in flight entertainment until after the flight was over."
Pros: "‘‘Twas great experience , FAs are always with good smiles while serving . Thanks."
Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."
Pros: "The ipad loaded with movies and magazines"
Cons: "The food needs improvement"
Pros: "The shuttle from terminals 3 to 2 could have been more organized. The sign says they leave every half hour, but they were waiting for 2 more passengers to arrive which made the wait almost an hour. Our flight was scheduled to board at 9:15 and they weren’t going to depart the shuttle until 9. We we’re panicked because we still needed to go through customs. They ended up leaving earlier after we talked to the reps for a bit. We made our fight but wow that was stressful."
Cons: "It was Xiamen airlines again so bad"
Pros: "It was good value, and landed a little early."
Cons: "No power plug or USB charging port."
Cons: "Check in at Kuala was a chaos. The agents were at a lost not knowing how to handle the family in front of me. It took them more than 30 minutes to handle just one family. I think there must be something wrong with the booking system. It took me 45 minutes to complete my check in."
Cons: "They make it hard to upgrade your seat in route. No on board entertainment."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an email with wrong Terminal. It said in Terminal B. But there's no Terminal B. They are Terminal 1, 2, 3. So my pick up by my relatives was delayed by 1.5 hours looking for the terminal in the email. I had a headache due to hunger and stress ."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "Terminal 2 Manila is really going down the drain check in one row, immigration endless inside depart only one toilet to s eve a totally overcrowded check in Zone, not sure who the genius is deciding to close down additional toilets on one of the most busy travel days"
Pros: "crew was very helpful"
Pros: "the service and overall quality and comfort of plane"
Cons: "Of the four total flights, to include connections, Philippine Airlines was delayed on all legs. The delays were all after boarding and while sitting in plane. Delays ranged from 30 minutes to 75 minutes and all four flight delays were reported to be due to delays in getting baggage on the planes or getting the meals loaded on the planes according to the pilot's reports. Of note, on all four flights, the crew ran out of food before getting to our isle and had only one option remaining with no alternatives for those allergic to any portion of the meal. I would absolutely never recommend Philippine Airlines to anyone. The reduced cost of tickets was absolutely not worth the experience."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "flight delayed without a heads up. no entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Quickest flight available"
Cons: "Philippine Airlines food is bland and very soggy"
