OK 5.0

Cons: I had an urgent connection to another flight. The staff at Butuan and at Cebu were very helpful, trying to get me on it. The cabin crew were also helpful, but after being advised of my situation the pilot laughed and parked on the tarmac for 25 minutes guaranteeing I missed the flight.

Excellent 10.0

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: Boarding was efficient. Everything else was average.

Cons: With the exception of one Asian cabin crew, others were cold. Food has worsened on Lufthansa. Portion and quality are not as good as 1 year ago. I find the seat average in comfort for premium economy. If only the seat would move forward, I keep sliding off it. Cathay Pacific has a much better seat.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
