Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."

Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Pros: "The staff was very accommodating and were able to provide me a seat with more leg room last minute."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! Terrible customer service. Would not offer us complimentary airport hotel stay for a 19 hour layover. Wanted us to switch and pay to an earlier flight. Never again."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"

Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Dessert was disappointing, more choice could have been good."
Pros: "they have a good movie selection"
Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."

Use a plane other than th"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."

I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."
Pros: "Somewhat disorganized bec. People lined up even if swat numbers have not been called."
Cons: "People trying to push their way in the line. Color coding of tockets associated with colored line coding may improve situation."

Pros: "Every aspect was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."

Pros: "Timely and professional."

Cons: "General boarding was first come, first served vs by zone or seats."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"

Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "The staff on Cathay, as always, was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was extremely outdated - I felt like I stepped into a time capsule and somehow made it back to the late 80's. The seats were hard plastic, 21st century headphones didn't properly work because their inputs required two jacks instead of the now standard one, half of the seat belt had what can only be described as a fun noodle attached around it, and instead of the seat back reclining the actual seat just slid outwards, making you slouch instead of recline. While the staff was lovely, I honestly can't believe airplanes like this are still in commission. All it was missing was an ash tray in the arm rest."
Pros: "Flight went up and down at the right time and place. Can't ask for much more than that. All else was very nice."
Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Pros: "Direct and quick flight to bali"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and dirty. Overall, the plane was very dirty. Floors were dirty. Plane was freezing and they didn't provide us with blankets. The staff was slightly aggressive and didn't want to help. They were more transactional in wanting to just do the basics of their jobs and not go beyond - unlike singapore airlines, Turkish airlines, or emirates."
Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."

Cons: "Remind passengers when sick, to wear masks or cough into tissue."
Pros: "Nice service!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and responsive."
Cons: "1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best... no water bottles provided... chronically thirsty on that flight."
Cons: "On time boarding and availability of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. No seat charging. It would have been nice to know this a head of time so we could have prepared (tracing with 3 kids). Right before we took off crew told everyone to down load virgin app, they didn’t specify the entertainment app. So we were not able to watch any movies."

Pros: "Seats, entertainment, meals."
Cons: "Late out of the gate. Missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "No entertainment if you didn’t have their app installed. Food was average. No room near our seats for our bags in the overhead bins because crew & other passengers further down the plane had already used them. Had to wait outside in the cold to board. One of my bags was broken on this leg! Tight seating! Not impressed."

Pros: "Rebooked on earlier flight and it was early!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, new aircraft, comfortable seats, flight was on time."

Pros: "The crew, the food, the overall experience was positive and pleasurable - especially since it was a 14 hour flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "The seats cushions - not the width of the seats or arm rests, but the cushions themselves could use some additional padding. I used a few blankets and pillow for extra comfort but that's the only negative I can think of. Again it was a 14 hour flight. Thanks! :-)"

Cons: "No entertainment, food or charging port"
Pros: "Every thing was smooth from check in to boarding. Flight on time. Crew were attentive."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "way too noisy from the engines--was very draining horrible space in economy--jammed packed like cattle-this alone may cause me not to fly you again"
Cons: "I was unable to check in online and arrived in Melbourne 3 hours in advance of my flight. I had to stand in line for over an hour just to check in for my flight. It was a complete mess at the check in desk. There were several issues with other passengers that caused two gate agents to be tied up for upper 30 minutes. Rather than taking them to customer service they continued to block the line. Then with Economy gates being down to only 3 (with my guess at over 100 people waiting to check in) one of the agents used the economy line to service business class pasangers, when there were already 3 agents serving the business class patrons. While I understand business entitles you to special priorities but to have your economy passengers (who are all paying over $1500 a ticket) to have to wait so long for business passages to all walk straight get up can waiting 5 minutes felt very wrong and made many people upset. My family was waiting to see me off and subsequently got charges $30 in parking due to the delay in check in. Also communication at the gate was very poor. Flight was delayed several times due to wind and no announcement came from ground staff, only way I knew was due to an email. I could tell a lot of guests were very distressed. Very disappointed from a company that prides itself on service."

Pros: "The Virgin crew on this flight were amazing. So friendly and welcoming. Amazing!"

I've never in my life had to exit an airport on a layover to re-enter again and go through the entire check-in process from scratch. There are no signs anywhere that tell you you will have to go through security a SECOND time once you're at the gate. I'm diabetic and need to have water on me at all times. I can't get dehydrated. I had no clue I woudn't be able to take the bottles of water I PURCHASED AT THE AIRPORT!!! with me on the plane. I've never experienced that in all my years of flying. No other airline or airport has ever made you throw out the water that you purchased at the airport. So I wasted my money there. PLUS, the only vendor that had any sort of appetizing food that I could eat as a diabetic was a cash only vendor. They took USD, great, but they were using a conversion chart from May 2017 (I was flying in March 2018) so the exchange rate was in THEIR favor. And they won't give you USD in change. They give you Philippine money in change. So I get screwed on the exchange rate on BOTH sides of the transaction. Plus, what am I going to do with Philippine money when I'm only in the airport for a layover??? So I'm going to lose money again to change it back to USD once I get home. Archaic. We are living in the 21st century. This shouldn't happen. The plane was sooooo uncomfortable for a 13 hour flight. The entertainment system at my seat wasn't working so I had to be moved once we were in the air. The new seat was so worn in, there was virtually no padding underneath my saecrum (butt bone) for the 13 hours. No foot rest, either. And the temperature in the plane fluxuated the whole time between hot and cold (although mostly hot). You should take some lessons from Singapore Airlines.....so much more comfortable in ALL aspects."
Pros: "Air hostesses very helpful and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "good crew and entertainment"
Cons: "stinky food, fat girl beside me taking up all the room"
Pros: "take off and landing was smooth.I am particularly nervous about take-off and landing.Its my second time to fly with PAL.So I was surprised it was smooth.But after maybe 2 hours in the air,flying became shaky.I got worried.I got headache bcoz of nervousness."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane."
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: "It was an almost perfect flight. We just had the wrong travellers sitting behind us. it was a late night flight and these teenagers were playing UNO. So can you imagine the noise they are making???"
Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first . Crew was exceptional w their service and the washrooms were kept clean even towards the end of the flight. Very important."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "the first time a strong turbulence happened, people were screaming and started praying. The pilot got on the speaker and assured the passengers that the plane is ok and able to handle any turbulence. He spoke in a very calm voice and I think it also calmed most of the passengers. I went back to sleep."
Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices and then food was good."
Cons: "I was notified once I arrived to the airport that the fight had been cancelled. This created a great inconvenience since I had a work meeting that I had to attend and was not able due to cancellation. I was moved to a separate flight within a different airline, which I appreciate but I still missed my work meeting due to the new schedule."
Pros: "staff were really nice. the lounge kinda sucks but at least it exists."
Cons: "no wifi, connection in manila airport. manila airport is the worst experience in the world. limited wifi to 2 hours. one of the staff in the lounge kept touching me and making weird eye and lip guestures at me and felt really uncomfortable. i complained to the ground staff."
Pros: "It has a USB charging port, and it wasn't too full."
Cons: "When we arrived, we sat on the runway for about an hour."
Pros: "It was very organized and on time"
Pros: "For a short trip of almost two hours going to and from Taipei, I did not expect to receive such accomodating treatment from PAL. Crews are efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 5 hours - Connection from Manila was going to be very close. Flight attendant assured me multiple times they would hold the connecting plane, and give us an escort off the plane to make it to the other gate as fast as possible. We arrive in Manila, and there is no special escort. They take us at a regular pace to a connections desk in the terminal. They delayed helping us so we missed the only other flight leaving that night for Bali. While the person at the transfer desk was supposed to be helping us get new connecting flights, they would stop helping us, and take care of other people that showed up at the desk. It took them 1 1/2 hours to rebook our flight. They tried to put us on a flight that took over 20 hours with connections for a direct flight we had missed that would take about 4 hours of flying. We had to get on Kayak.com ourselves to find a better connecting flight that left the next morning. After 1 1/2 hours, the attendant finally put on a flight that was similar to the one we found but slightly worse. They said they could not work with certain airlines leaving from Manila, which I did not understand. Then, they proceed to tell us to go wait in the terminal overnight for the flight leaving the next day. We had to directly ask them to give us a hotel room for the night, which they did upon our request, but were not going to offer it without us asking for it. I understand delays and missed flights are part of air travel. But we were routinely lied to, ignored, and flat out pushed aside during the rebooking process. It was a completely unacceptable way to treat a customer. Never fly Philippine Airlines if you can avoid it."
Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."
Cons: "I don't like the iPad entertainment. I prefer seat mounted screens. The chairs are too cramped as well. Boarding was a bit slow and the waiting area was so cramped."
Pros: "crew was very helpful"
Cons: "It was fine."
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: "Courteous Staff altogether."
Cons: "Delays should have been posted earlier. Long lay-overs."
Pros: "Nothing hated every minute of the cattle car ride from hell"
Cons: "Delays horrible flight attendants extremely small seats"
Pros: "The ground crew were extremely helpful and friendly. The airport in Manila is not very good, but that's not PA's fault."
Cons: "Seats are a bit small and the WIFI both in the aircraft and in the airport was horrible."
Pros: "I travel all the world many countries all the time and this landing in guam was on the top ten maybe number 2 of all times congrats pilots very good so good happy"
Cons: "the window was dirty [ someone wiped nose on it maybe] please chek the clean crews for the windows ."
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
Cons: "Everything, so I bought a ticket back with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Pros: "Terrible airline company. It’s a ripoff!"
Cons: "Honesty. Ripoff!"
Pros: "The staff was really nice when I asked for the green tea they make sure you get it"
Cons: "If the assigned seat reclined. I had to Move to a different seat which Worked."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't ask me if I need ice cream or any drink but they asked another seat of passages. It's not fair..."
Pros: "Because I had missed my original connecting flight, the airlines booked me at an overnight hotel and my new flight seat number was premium economy. This was fine in the end, but in the moment I practically cried."
Cons: "Again, not being delayed and having to miss my original connecting flight would have been best."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, however I had a very serious problem upon checking in as I DISCOVERED AM NOT ALLOWED A SINGLE KG OF LUGGAGE.THE AIRLINE ASKED ME TO INFORM THE AGENT WHO DID NOT MAKE IT CLEAR WHEN I WAS BUYING THE TICKET.THAT HAS COST ME A LOT OF ANXIETY AND BIG$$"
Cons: "TICKETS ON SALE THAT HAS NOT LUGGAGE MUST BE CLEARLY STATED THAT NO LUGGAGE ALLOWED"
Pros: "Malayasia airlines made me sad since they left my luggage in KL on my trip to Shanghai today. The agent in Shanghai was really bad to handle situation. He doesnt care at all. No one from Malaysia Airlines showed off to explain the situation. Me and my wife dont have any clothes to change. Very bad"
Cons: "Malaysia airlines need to Change the behavior of the staffs in shanghai especially the agent or the station manager of MAS"
Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"
Cons: "It will be nice if there’s choice for vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Toilets should never be wet."
Pros: "the crew was flexible enough to allow change of seat to emergency exit after takeoff. Some of the crew are friendly, but not all."
Cons: "the seats. I am 5'9 tall and my knees are touching the seat in front of me. Entertainment system needs to be upgraded. Food is so-so. Overall, MH flights, not just this recent one was just what was expected as the bare minimum."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Very old plane."
Cons: "I haven't even made it to my destination yet."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Good food. Comfortable seats even in coach."
Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."
Pros: "Excellent as well!"
Cons: "Everything good as well."
Pros: "Brand new A350!"
Cons: "Hmm, nothing really. Lucky I was not in a hurry.."
Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."
Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
Pros: "There were choices of foods. I really liked the fact that they considered Korean natives as they gave kimchi together with their dishes. Attendants were polite and kind. 30kg allowance is a great merit too."
Cons: "Frequent delays in flights and changes in timings. There were many passengers and it's quite hard to carry my carrier through the alley. The foods may be in variety but did not taste very nice."
Pros: "Attendants were very good"
Cons: "12 hrs in the air!!!"
Pros: "They provided us with a hotel to stay in until everything was arranged."
Cons: "No communications with KL that our flight was cancelled and marked me as a no show on my next flight. Which cancelled my next flights. I'm not too impressed."
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Pros: "Second flight was quite empty and the plane was in much better shape"
Cons: "My checked bag did not arrive at my work city of Singapore. It took 2 days to be brought to my hotel despite my being told they would be on the next flight. I arrived back in Denpasar yesterday and, again, my bags are lost and I again I was told they would be on the next flight. I still do not have my bag. Seems to be a pattern with Malaysian Airways and I will avoid them in the future, Also, I left my Ipad plugged in at the Premier Lounge in Denpasar and realized it as I was boarding the plane. The Malaysian Air boarding staff got on radios and appeared to try to help by telling them to put aside for pick up upon my return. Yesterday, The Premiere lounge said they did not have it despite my name, email and phone number being written on the Ipad. Between Malaysian Air and the Lounge and their lack of concern and professionalism it was not a good trip. As One World Emerald member, I steer a lot of business towards these One World Airlines. I expect better treatment."
Pros: "Food and hospitality"
Pros: "Leg room. Thanks Charles. Legend!!! 9c but prefer 10"
Cons: "My screen didn't stay up. Needs fixing"
Pros: "Nothing at all!"
Cons: "Worst handling of delays and cancellations I have ever experienced. Worst management ever! More than 17 hours delay before I finally got on another plane. No hotel, no food, no nothing."
Pros: "Good on the plane and in the business class lounge was excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours resulting in us missing our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to China and then Los Angeles . Malaysia airlines did not apologize or help us with rebooking our flights or offering hotel accommodation. They just left a family of five with no flight, stuck in Malaysia with no options of getting home. . Flight crew had very hard bumpy landing on both legs of flight and maybe they need to go review landing protocol so that we don't have to have a hard rough landing"
Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights were delayed for hours. Terrible."
Cons: "3 hour delay Food quality could have been better"
Pros: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."
Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."
Pros: "Massage chair, very relaxing for long hour journey"
Cons: "Lost baggage took 24 hours to arrive. Rude staff."
Pros: "I actually thought the seats were pretty comfy. And they have in flight entertainment, no need to download an app or anything."
Cons: "Wish I had known there would be a meal on the short flight. I usually request a vegetarian meal so I couldn't do it this time."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Cons: "Flight networkintl booked our tickets very late later mistake in name , faces lot of difficulties in boarding every time..."
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Cons: "our vegan food was not provided"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
