Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "no problems"

Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "Food not hood"
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."

Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."

Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."
Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."

Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and no apologies were made. We had to rush to our connecting flight."

Cons: "I didn't like food options on the way back....."
Cons: "i didnt like the fact that the flight was cancelled and i was not notified the staff there were no help at all , overall pathetic by then having to take a later flight i then missed my connecting flight to Melbourne which in turn caused me to delay my return by a day then causing me to miss my transport back to my home which is three hours from the airport , i was told in Jakarta that someone would meet me in Melbourne on my arrival to make arrangment for my travel home but no one was there so i had to make my own way home costing me extra money .

Pros: "The quality of the food was truly outstanding. A personal chef on board - very happy to vary the food to get it just right, Also to suggest an alternative. I asked for something with a little spice. The flight attendent suggest one dish but then discussing it with the chef he suggested alterning another. Presentation expectional."
Cons: "The cabin is good but the style is a little old fashioned compared to other airlines - although the cabin wasn’t tattty. In the same way that Emirates is really old fashioned to westerners eyes."

Cons: "Having to change my ticket was a nightmare. I had to call Garuda in the U.S. and after 45 minutes, was told I had to call Indonesia who took another 45 minutes to process the change. All of this cost time and money, not only for the ticket change but for the calls."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. The seats were spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "The food could have been better."
Cons: "This was my mother in law traveling. Upon arrival in Jakarta, no Garuda staff assisted her in changing terminals for connecting flight.

When we got to Soekarno Hatta, it took a while before they could open the door of the plane and let everyone out because they were waiting for some equipment (the stairs i'm guessing). Then they put us in a bus which took a loooong time to get to the right terminal. I was sick at that time so this was very inconvenient."

Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."

However, the seats are relatively spacious, even in economy and my knees weren't hitting the back of the seat in front of me. I also appreciated that we could get up to grab water or juice at any time during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding could be more organized."
Pros: "Love the plane, seats"
Cons: "Food has gone down"
Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."
Cons: "Lost bags. Stranded in Sri Lanka in sweatsuit worn on freezing plane. Cathay has no agent in airport to speak with...must communicate through local airport personnel, who have no information, nor authority to help. Cathay wouldn't track down bag or deliver in readonable amount of time, so we had to go back next day at midnight when nxt plane arrived + hope bags were on it. We were shocked as crew was so organized getting us (people) to connecting flight in Hong Kong. Woman met us at gate and personally led us to connection gate. Only a few gates down in same terminal. In case you're curious: not that we expect Michelin star dining, but the food is dismal. Some of the worst airline food ever. It's like pure sodium + tastes very much like the aluminum can it surely came out of."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding please setup separate lines for end and front cabin seats. Since everyone where mingled during boarding the flight the aisle was blocked by front cabin passengers loading their cabin languages.. Try boardning end of the cabin passengers first like from seats 60-75 and then front cabin seats."
Pros: "Food was decent, staff was friendly and they wasted no time getting us in the air and off the plane"
Cons: "Not very good seats, no wifi, weak movie selection, the bottled water is like 2 ounces (on a 16 hr flight i had to drink 100 of them), we couldn't pick seats in advance."
Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
Pros: "Nothing wrong with the flights, but big issues with Cathay Pacific coordinating connecting flights after first flight was canceled."
Cons: "I was waiting and standing to find out about my rebooked flight for 3 hours. The Cathay pacific employees in Manila tried their best to get everyone on the next connecting flights out, but there was no proper system. Everyone was trying to handle the cases of multiple passengers rather than delegating tasks. PLUS the new flight went through an additional stopover in Vancouver... Was not messaged about any compensation."
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "3 and a half hour delay at airport, with no compensation from Cathay."

Cons: "Very cold inside plane I catch cold"
Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were worse than the ones on the shorter flight. Maybe it was just an older aircraft, but you'd think the longer flights would have the more comfortable seats."
Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was excellent."

Pros: "Nice cree"
Cons: "All perfect"
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "PAL flights always delayed"
Cons: "Didn’t like the portion in Manila airport where they take away your passport! I understand you don’t have a say in that but maybe giving customers clear instructions or expectations would help"
Cons: "E mail up dates of change of gates or times."
Pros: "crew were great"
Pros: "Superb service!"
Cons: "Hoping to have a flight on time and not delayed."
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Pros: "Service was great, took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was average"
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: "Overall great"
Cons: "Was not able to online check in"
Pros: "Despite a shortage of Flight Attendants on the Flight the ones that were working did an AWESOME Job serving the Passengers ."
Cons: "For the sake of the Flight Attendants more Of them to help."
Pros: "The plane is new and clean"
Cons: "If the flight was on time. The flight was delayed which resulted on missing my connecting fllight to Denver. I have to stay and wait at the San Francisco airport for 19 hours"
Cons: "Pillows for business class as seat posture hurts the lower back. Needs improvement on loading priority luggages as mine came out together with the economy passengers."
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Pros: "Flight is amazing, sacious seats and best quality entertainment. Most importantly only airlines to give inflight free wifi"
Cons: "Airport crew can be better trained. They have 2step interview process about my travel which is annoying and irrelevant."
Pros: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Late, late, PAL is always late. First we were late by two hours; then boarding was delayed by one hour after that; then we sat on the tarmac for two more hours. Literally my dad had almost finished watching his first plane movie before we were able to takeoff. Fortunately our flight wasn't cancelled, but we missed not one but TWO connecting flights because it was so late. Also, MNL is a terrible airport. What is the logic in needing to pass through THREE sets of metal detectors and x-ray machines before boarding?"
Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."
Pros: "I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in."
Cons: "I am about 6 feet tall and the leg room was terrible. I was thankful that the person in front of me did not recline, other side their head would have been in my face."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "the bnew a321neo plane. love the new business class seats for its short haul flight"
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "Very nice crew. They were quiet efficient and very nice . Food was delivered quickly and was the usual airline quality food."
Cons: "We waited almost 30 minutes at the gate after the door closed. Then we waited on the tarmac for another 20 minutes. We taxied out and waited some more. No entertainment options to pass the time. Finally got clearance and took off."
Pros: "The crew are professionals"
Cons: "The plane. Its an old airbus a340. Was expecting the new boeing 777-300er new business class."
Pros: "Price.... $138 USD from HK to Manila at the last minute is fantastic. Also, very helpful ticket counter moved my flight to an earlier one than originally booked, at no extra charge."
Pros: "Crew was fine food mediocre"
Cons: "Leg room is real tight. Hardly any space to move. Compared to other airlines the A320-200 Philippine Airlines aircraft has been packed with way too many seats. Will not fly them again."
Pros: "The Inflight crew is very good."
Cons: "The transfer process and layover experience is very poor."
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."
Cons: "seats is too tight/noarow"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing."
Cons: "They choose to serve beef curry on a flight from a Indian minority country. Surprise, 20 of us were stuck with it because that is all that was left... All that is left is beef, is that ok? Like we have a choice. Late as always too."
Cons: "They should raise the baggage allowance to 20K. People travel to Palawan from all over the world and probably would bring home more souvenirs if they had a higher baggage allowance. Otherwise flight was great."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "It was Xiamen airlines again so bad"
Pros: "It's an old aircraft so we were given a personal ipad each passenger which is so good! We were emailed for flight time changed but didn't know our aircraft was changed too so our reserve seats were gone too."
Cons: "Food is very dull. Our flight coming in and out were both delayed."
Pros: "Direct flight to Los Angeles is convenient. Overall the flight crew was hospitable. The food was enjoyable and they keep restrooms clean"
Cons: "Terminal 2 at the Manila International Airport is aweful. The redundancy of screening at the gate is laughable. The terminal is too warm and there are not nearly enough seating for everyone at every gate I viewed. This experience alone may influence future use of Philippine Airlines. The flight attendant who served my section never smiled. I was suprised she is entrusted with serving passengers."
Pros: "It was good value, and landed a little early."
Cons: "No power plug or USB charging port."
Cons: "flight canceled"
Pros: "Getting off the flight."
Cons: "More often than not, Philippine Airlines has been our airline of choice because we found their rates to be fair and flights direct and easy. Despite the fact that the PAL terminal was pretty poor, and the food on board was never really decent, we remained loyal to PAL for quite a few years. On our way back to Melbourne from Manila on June 17, Saturday, Colin, Hendrix and I were awaiting boarding at gate 10 for flight PR 209. Having flown with PAL from Melbourne to Manila (as well as with another airline from Manila to Manchester and back), we understood that the usual procedure was to allow passengers with infants to board first. Due to the lack of order (there were no clear queues in sight), Colin decided to ask 3 different PAL personnel if there was, indeed, a priority queue for people travelling with infants. ALL THREE PERSONNEL ASSURED US THAT THEY WERE NOT YET BOARDING AND THAT WE WOULD BE CALLED UPON PRIOR TO THEM LETTING ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANE. 2 minutes later, a PAL personnel appears with signage that reads certain row numbers and begins to call out to ALL PASSENGERS FOR BOARDING. Colin swiftly rushes to the front (me and baby in tow) and demands an explanation as to why we were told one thing but are watching them act upon something completely different. I wish I was joking when I tell you that the personnel just stared blankly at us and then carried on checking boarding passes. No apologies, no explanation offered. As soon as we boarded, Colin turned to the first flight steward he saw and asked for a complaint form and told this could ONLY be done online, to which Colin requested we be given the email/web address upon take off. The seats assigned to us were on the right most side of the aircraft, a window and a middle seat. As Colin was placing our bags in the overhead compartment, the steward called to Colin from across the aisle (past the 3 seats in the middle of the plane) to introduce the purser, Jolly Bello. Please note this was happening while people were also trying to get past and get to their seats -and Mr. bello called out across the aisle, "I heard you have a complaint??" to which Colin, baffled, replied "yes do you want to come over here so we aren’t shouting over these people?". Colin yet again told this purser what the complaint was about and was asked (verbatim) "so would you like to make a complaint against THEM?" Would the correct protocol not be to 1. Apologise for any confusion, miscommunication or poor service, 2. Take some responsibility and acknowledge the complaint and 3. Maybe come approach us AFTER TAKE OFF and not while everyone is trying to board the plane? We are no longer choosing Philippine Airlines."
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."
Pros: "Food, gift pack, in-flight wi-fi based entertainment."
Cons: "Seating a little bit cramped in coach."
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and just barely fit into my seat. Two inches taller and I wouldn't have fit at all. I know they're marketed towards a primarily Asian audience, and the plane was totally full, but don't expect to be comfortable if you're bigger than 6'."
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: "I was very impressed with the service give by PAL. Good meals, good utensils, and blanket and pillow provided to each passenger as well as current tv shows and movies on the entertainment system for free."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the plane seemed dated and didn't work so that was a bummer. The attendants offered to move me to a another spot, but couldn't due to it being a full flight. Also the plane was two hours delayed leaving."
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled for 'operational reasons' - was put on next day flight instead. Repeatedly called Philippine Airlines customer service to ask about them providing overnight hotel accommodation given the new flight time, but was either told to call back later, that they had entered the wrong date for the request for hotel accommodation - in the end received no reply at all!! Worst airline customer service experience ever!"
