Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."

Pros: "The food selection, there is several pre-order meal based on diet or your religion"
Cons: "The seat pitch at least 33""
Cons: "Luggages did not arrive with the flight as it should be. It got lost in Sydney from Queenstown on flight SQ 6683 operated by Virgin Australia (VA 162)."
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."
Cons: "Transit time is way too tight. You need at least 2 hrs in between to account for landing and transfer time between terminals"
Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."
Cons: "See above. No in flight entertainment makes you feel like you're flying with the low cost carrier rather than a full service airline."
Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"
Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."
Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."
Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"
Cons: "Seats were bit hard without proper head rest.entertainment kiosk was not working."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "Is Singapore Airlines food quality slipping? First time I’ve been really unenthusiastic about it..."
Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."
Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"
Pros: "Crew is big on service and being true professionals. Always smiling and being attentive"
Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."
Pros: "Flight Delhi to Singapore was uncomfortable. Flight to SFWas very comfortable. Roomy seats. Good service."
Cons: "Segment Delhi to Singapore."
Cons: "Business cabin is not as good as the Air France one"
Cons: "The Manchester stopover was just a lot of standing in lines. From Manchester to Singapore, the plane was full and my seat mates didn't get up when we needed out. So, we escaped to the back for a while where we were "hushed" by a stewardess. The stewards didn't seem to like it when we were out of our seats, but 12 hours is too long to be stuck in a middle seat."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, food, boarding was easy, crew gave a warm welcome and was comfortable"
Cons: "I'm good with everything as there was really no down side"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"

Cons: "Less confusing controls on the equipmentl"
Pros: "Double seat on economy class upper deck"
Pros: "v cooperative crew & helpful"
Cons: "Availability of livesport tv channels"
Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."
Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"
Pros: "Interior of plane was very comfortable and entertainment options were excellent."

Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Pros: "My first flight with Emirates. Excellent all round"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff"
Pros: "Comfortable overall, not much turbulance"
Pros: "Although a short trip it was a great experience especially the bar The seat setup is very good and facilities cannot be faulted."

Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"
Cons: "in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Pros: "Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Asian Meal is not good at all"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "Everything. The service, food, entertainment. This airline is phenomenal!"
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment only."
Cons: "I was surprised when i got on the plane because i always hear great thinhs about the Emirates airplanes, this one was very low quality airplane, and for a long distance flights the flight must have been a better one."
Pros: "It felt comfortable."
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."
Cons: "Crew didn't check properly the needs of other passengers,like blankets they didn't give to other passengers including me"
Pros: "The flight itself was great, though it was 4 hours delayed. The interface between Jet Blue and Emirates didn't work."
Cons: "I booked roundtrip flights in two legs, so Jet Blue, Emirates, Emirates, Jet Blue. The two airlines didn't seem to interface. In each direction for some reason, I was unable to check in online for the second flight, which didn't make sense (so Emirates there and Jet Blue back). On top of that, neither could give me boarding passes that would work for the other. The customer service kiosk took about 15 minutes to get this done for Jet Blue in JFK."
Cons: "Food baf"
Pros: "Crew and the upgraded entertainment system. Especially, the nee touch screen and 3.5 mm support in the headphone jack."
Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Cons: "I was not allowed onto this flight (Dubai to Hong Kong) because my previous flight (London to Dubai) was a little late, but I made it to the gate before it was closed. My fellow passengers from my flight were also not allowed onto the plane, and while we were arguing (including being told that the plane was full) other passengers from an even later flight were allowed on board! Instead I had to wait many hours in the terminal (because apparently there were no hotel rooms available!?) to get a flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (!!!?) where I could get a Cathay flight to Hong Kong. This meant I arrived 14 hours later than scheduled. Absolutely abysmal service, with no sympathy and no responsibility from any employees."
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Cons: "The crew wasn't as attentive to me as they were to the gentlemen on the plane. Felt a ignored quite a bit."
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Pros: "Departure and arrival on time. Pleasant, attractive and efficient crew. Decent choice of entertainment for domestic flight. Baggage delivered after only 15 minutes of arrival at baggage belt. Overall great!"
Cons: "Passengers push from the back to leave the aircraft and don't like to allow you to enter the exit line so you also have to push your way in. Very rude and sad most travelers are so impolite."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane, walking distance to board the plane is so far"
Cons: "No TV on cjr1000"
Pros: "Cabin crew services very friendly"
Cons: "Mediocre food, old movie list mostly. The biggest complain is both duiring the CGK T3 international outbound and inbound flight makes you walk the whole length of t3 from the departure gate as the plane for this international flight was parked at the most corner part of domestic terminal. No travellator, no buggy. Terrible for the elders.and bi assistance can be seen"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't like your time tables where you use only 12 hrs. It's okay to go all the way to 24 instead of 12/12 I had to rebook my ticket at additional expenses"
Pros: "The female air crews. Indonesian female air stewardess are simply beautiful and shapely!"
Cons: "My entertainment set’s headphone plug doesn’t work at all. So I’m watching movie with no sound throughout the whole flight."
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 . Overall my exsperience with your airline was a disaster for a so called international airline and i would never recomend to my friends to fly with you ."
Cons: "Garuda played loud “music” on arrival so we couldn’t watch the entertainment system. Getting onto the flight was horrid with long long long wait on the bus to go from terminal to airplane. Food was ultra salty and dreadful."
Pros: "Service on board was good, Entertainment and seat comfort too"
Cons: "Too cold in the plane, chichen curry, always a risk to serve this in a plane your chef should know why. Dessert very poor."

Cons: "I'm a bit get bored with the food."
Pros: "Excellent and plentiful food."
Cons: "Limited storage in business class seat"
Cons: "I purchased 3 legs of a trip on-line and tried daily for 50+ days to make a seat reservation. Occasionally, a screen would appear that stated a fee would be charged. I had no problem with that and was prepared with my credit card to make payment only to be told "oops there was an error" and the transaction could not be completed. I called the Garuda contact number in the U.S. twice and was told there was nothing that could be done from the US and I would have to take care of it when I arrived in Bangkok. I probably will never fly Garuda again so it really will not be a problem."
Pros: "Staff was great, and plane was nice. Entertainment options very good."
Cons: "Didn't like you can't use your phone to read. They make you completely put away. Not impressed by food options."

Cons: "Operational Delay? 75 min?! Unacceptable for a country flagship carrier.. The explanation Operational issue is lack of respect to Garuda customers.. It say nothing at all."
Pros: "Flight was good, easy to board, friendly service, reasonably comfortable. On time."
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: "Organised, well turned out, polite and efficient, a refreshing change to British Airways"
Pros: "I met with a best friend whom I didn't meet for a decades, and he was I the same GA flight but not a member of GFF. Lounge Team give me a courtesy access so we can have a quite discussion in GA Lounge"

Cons: "the balikpapan to jakata leg departed late due to a late incoming plane and we had a connecting flight to make. so ended up havng less than an hour to make our flight to melbourne! we made it though- just!"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."

Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."

Pros: "Overall, good flight"

Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "Crew was good!"
Cons: "Manila airport business lounge full, not accessible, croweded with too many airlines; Processing at the Manila airport too complicated for passengers in transit (completely different when we traveled from Vancouver through Manila, why is that? Boarding gate (Manila) terrible, crowded, no available seats, “business” section small and with so dirty sests that it was not possible to use them!"
Pros: "The plane was good, comfortable, service excellent! Business lounge at Singapore airport is excellent!"
Pros: "Leaving the gate early, and take off right on time, landing early and at the gate right on time: amazing!"

Pros: "Despite a shortage of Flight Attendants on the Flight the ones that were working did an AWESOME Job serving the Passengers ."

Pros: "Most everything was very good expierence. Entertainment selection is excellent. Crew was friendly and full of energy. Plane was pristinely clean."
Cons: "I see a comment about letting people board when it wasn't their turn. This did happen a little and it is shameful more of the people that think they can get away with it. Eventually, the ground crew did start yelling and organizing people, which helped correct the situation. I do think that all people should be kicked back to the end of the line for not following the procedure. Food was only okay (Fish in shrimp sauce)."
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: "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."
Pros: "Wasnt bothered as compared to previous flights."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding and taking off and NO explanation from any airline personnel."
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Great service Super friendly crew"
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."
Cons: "I was expecting that they will compensate for the time loss but unfortunately they did not. I asked for an earlier flight and a good seat, but they just kept me waiting."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Nice plane. They fed us even though it was less than 2 hour flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, late take off. Chicken nuggets I had we're bland."
Pros: "Thw flight was on time."
Cons: "None so far."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "only water available, carrot cake snack given, no headphones issued. delay of 30 min"
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."
Pros: "The service for my flight was excellent. I really had nothing that bothered me at all that was under the control of the flight crew. This was my first time on Philippines airline, but I would do it again."
Pros: "Seat 31A"
Pros: "Getting onboard"
Cons: "Being in a cramped seat for 4 hours and I’m 6’2” with disabilities and I can not get no accommodations from your airline"
Pros: "Comfortable, good selection of entertainment"
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A Philippine Airlines check-in personnel did not fail to make my family feel extremely disrespected by treating us in such a rude manner at their counter. After verifying our information, she proceeded to tell us we had no reserved seats for our flight. When I told her we had seat numbers (thus reserved seats) when I checked their website the night before, she had the audacity to imply that we were lying about these mediocre seats! After speaking to the supervisor, she then proceeded to tell us that we should be thankful for the seats she was able to give us, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME SEATS THAT WERE LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THE DAY BEFORE. Philippine Airlines need to better train their check-in personnel proper customer service to prevent passengers from having such unpleasant experiences with their staff. Our check-in process would have gone smoothly had she not replied in such a snarky manner to us and implied that we owe her for the seats we had in the first place."
Cons: "flight canceled"
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: "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."
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Narrow seat and no leg room"
Cons: "Departure time of 10pm..... didn't leave til after 11pm. and then we are sent to Guam. Nowhere on my ticket said we were to go to Guam. HORRIBLE SERVICE"
Cons: "It was the shortest flight time I've ever had from cebu going back to LA"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin staff. Still the most covenient flight to and from the Philippines."
Cons: "The line at JFK. There we not enough seats for passengers. Sink was clogged in one restroom and remained so even after the "technical" layover at YVR."
Cons: "There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English."
Pros: "Philappo all very nice"
Cons: "nothing i didnt like"
Pros: "A very accomodating crew. Truly filipino."
Cons: "No entertainment onboard. Wifi is limited. The toilets seem to be poorly maintained. I sat next to the toilet and i can soetimes smell the urine from my seat and the fact that the toilets have small space."
Pros: "Cheapest price for a flight from Denpensar to Bangkok"
Cons: "Crew was rude. I paid for an emergency exit seat, only to find out the manager at the check-in counter gave me a seat with hardly (if any) extra leg room. I moved to the back of the plane where there were 6 open emergency exit seats with no one in front of them. I sat down and was immediately told you had to pay for these seats. I explained the situation and they ended up having me get my receipt to prove I had paid. Overall bad experience."
Pros: "Philippines Airlines is quite comfortable in economy class and the staff are friendly."
Cons: "Too many times people I talk to have a problem with connecting flights because of PAL's lateness. Again, my flight was delayed. I will say that they held my PAL connecting flight to Cebu which was great for me but would suck for all the passengers waiting for my flight!"
