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"

Cons: "We were late leaving HK but that is all. Minor in overall scheme of the journey."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare.

Cons: "Our plane was late leaving Shanghai so we missed our connection to Hyd. Then it was routed to nearby airport for refeuling. Once in Hong Kong we were assigned a hotel but it took 2 hours in a Taxi line then an hour to the hotel. I wad so tired i could only sleep at the hotel while resting to return to the airport the next day!"

Pros: "movies, pillow, blanket, plenty of water and OJ"

Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"

Pros: "I liked that nothing was a hassle to get to, the staff were amazing and the pilot was well-skilled."

Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"

Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"

Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."

Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."
Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"

Pros: "Always organised"

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "First time I flew Qantas and it was a flight from Melb- Dubai and then Dubai - London. I sat in row 62 and the food three times the food selection had run out the fruits and beef curry. I wasn't able to check in online which was quite annoying. The crew from Melb-Dubai were fantastic. So friendly and talkative and I think one was called Jordan."

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "All round excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."

Pros: "I was fortunate to a e a points upgrade to 1st Class Like a dream"

Pros: "Nice seats in business, good food, nice crew."
Cons: "Door closed ten minutes ahead of schedule yet had to wait on stand nearly half an hour to push back due to airport congestion. Arrived in HKG late at a remote stand and had to use stairs and be bussed to the terminal. I missed the last HKIA Express train to HK"

Pros: "comfort is alright"
Cons: "no entertainment not even music"

Cons: "The lounge is awful."

Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth. Take-off and landing likewise."
Cons: "The barbecue chicken supposedly from Aristocrat was served with hardly any sauce so it was dry and needless to say, disappointing..I just ate it just to fill up my stomach. I was looking for the music selections in the inflight magazine to help me choose the station but didn't see anything listed. The aisle of the Airbus 320 is quite narrow so it is difficult to pass the aisle w/out bumping into seats."

Pros: "Great experuance. Caring staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2 and a half hour flight! Amazing service."
Cons: "It was a bit tight. Not much legroom."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."

Pros: "The service on the flight was superb."

Pros: "Friendly filipino airport staff and PAL stewardess are friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Very long que at HK immigration"

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: "It's a Philippine Flag carrier. It's a privilege to patronize our own carrier."
Cons: "No hassles at all. Generally a smooth flight to HongKong."

Pros: "It was like most other flights ie it was fine. Above average overall."
Cons: "A big negative was the transit lounge in Manila. Between 2 Philippine Airline flights we had an 8 hour layover in the Manila transit lounge. Not impressed at all. There were about 4/5 staff but they sat outside the lounge & did nothing to control the passengers & keep them quiet /organised. The lounge was very crowded, very noisy & there was only water to drink & nothing to eat. For 8 hours! The very least should be to supply more seating & a facility where passengers can order coffee/tea & snacks. Also there was only 1 ladies toilet, so always occupied. The lounge Definately needs an urgent upgrade in facilities then I would consider flying Phillipine Aiines again."

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: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."

Pros: "Great staff very nice and enterianment system at each seat was very good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Transit at Manila was terrible. Terrible crowded airport with poor signage. Very confusing."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."

Pros: "I"
Cons: "First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous."

Pros: "Great staff, pleasant cabin temperature and seats, lovely staff, and super quick boarding/unboarding."

Pros: "Vwry pleasant flight"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The crew"

Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Little Delayed"

Cons: "It was fine."

Pros: "The crews (all crews)"
Cons: "Can't watch the tv cause no earphone"

Pros: "The in flight meal was very. The cabin crew was friendly and gave good service."
Cons: "Legroom could have been better."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "The crew seemed to be more interested in chatting w/ each other than serving. I had to go to the service area at least 5x to ask for water. We were in a "holding" area for 3 hrs prior to flight. Was asked to vacate another area in the terminal because we didn't want to b in this cramped holding area."

Pros: "Boarding formalities were smooth and flight departed in schedule. Crew were attentive and friendly. All in all, a pleasant flight."

Pros: "1"
Cons: "0"

Cons: "Very bad, delay 90 minutes"

Pros: "Good service, but the food was HORABLE. !!"

Pros: "Good seats and crew."
Cons: "Choice of movies"

Cons: "It will be nice if there’s choice for vegetarian meal"

Cons: "Custom check line 200 meters long, security check line another 120 meter long, why not combine them together and open two machine in parallel"

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Flight status went from check in status to final call....not boarding announcement as promised in lounge. Rude check in lady at counter. Misguided info about check in. Old ratty plane. Bad food. Luggage damaged on arrival. Awful seats."

Pros: "excellent staff"
Cons: "ship needed cleaning"

Pros: "crew provided attentive and excellent service. Good food and beverage."
Cons: "cabin, seats and table cleanliness need to be improved. decline angle of seat and foot rest angle so limit."

Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was a 5 star experience, friendly hostess’s and friendly & helpful staff"

Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was an excellent experience The seats were so comfortable as well, and the customer service on and off the plane was amazing"

Pros: "Everimg went smoothly, from check in to boarding and flight. The ground and flight crew were helpful."
Cons: "Nothing for this trip"

Pros: "easy securityand boarding at kl"
Cons: "food bland"

Pros: "Overall is great"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Similarly delayed departure and arrived at HongKong over 11/2 hour later- poor service!"

Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."

Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."

Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate reflected on the boarding pass for the third time already. And to make it worse, this was the most difficult problem that me and my friends encountered throughout all the flights that we took. We nearly miss this flight as we actually went to the boarding gate that was reflected incorrectly on our boarding pass as stated earlier. There was also an unannounced delay. Flight estimated departure is at 1720HRS, but the flight only took off 1750HRS."

Pros: "Service and integtity"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."

Pros: "Satay, flatbed."
Cons: "No amenities kit, no mattress pad, no champagne, no menu for business class. And the forgot to serve the main course of my travelling partner."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. We had problem getting the attention of the crew as all of them were just hanging around the galley."

Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."

Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Why did the entertainment get shut off more than 30 minutes before landing?"

Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"

Cons: "Initial flight was one hour late....almost missed my connecting flight, bags didn't make it to my destination. Not much help or info given about the late flight and how to connect to the next flight. First plane was old and beat-up."

Pros: "Food and hospitality"

Cons: "Delayed"

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"

Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad landing,"

Pros: "Massage chair, very relaxing for long hour journey"

Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."

Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."

Pros: "Good food for airplane although I was in the back of the plane and they ran out of what I preferred to have. Lots of free drink options."
Cons: "Small seating area, hard to sleep on a 13 hour flight"

Pros: "Just fly."

Pros: "They left on time"
Cons: "Website is a debacle, asked to preorder meals for business but can't, can't check in on line, business menu was limited, what was on the menu wasn't offered. Seats are uncomfortable, short & narrow. In general for the amount of money paid for business, it's the worst yet"

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."

Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Crew was attentive and friendly."

Pros: "The crew were reasonably friendly and our experience at check in was positive with an accomodating staff member."
Cons: "Very tight seating with little leg room. Meal was forgettable. Only flight where seating wasn't changed from original booking."

Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "Service excellent"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"

Pros: "The seats are good recently"
Cons: "Delayed for around 25mins. Boarding is getting worst recently; either chaotic or implementing the new stupid policy of boarding according to seat letters."

Pros: "All thing"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Flight delayed for more than one hour. Check in counters not enough resulting in long queue."

Pros: "The plane seemed relatively new and the entertainment system had good choices. The seats were comfortable and business class was fairly empty"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic at best. The gate had long lines to go through security for 2 flights departing from that area which caused big delays. The plane managed to be loaded relatively on time but removing baggage from a customer who chose not to fly took almost an hour as compared to the 10 minute estimate. By the time we taxied, I was certain that I was in danger of missing my Hong Kong connection and asked the flight attendant to have the pilot radio American to inform them, I got the impression that my request was a low priority for the disinterested crew and, as feared, I missed my connection which forced a daylong wait in Hong Kong. The plane was a 737-800. Malaysia, unlike it's peers, flies mostly narrow bodies inter Asia as they disposed of all their 777's after the second 777 was shot down. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."

Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."

Pros: "Our plane was late coming from Bangkok. We had to run in KL to catch the next flight. We did not get our luggage when we arrived in Bali. Still don't have it after 24 hours."

Cons: "Flight purchase did not go through and found out too late to try and rebook it again. Tried calling booking company to sort it out and was on hold for 40 minutes which caused me to miss my flight."

Pros: "Cheapest nonstop between KUL and HKG on one of the 3 major alliances."
Cons: "Dated planes, inadequate recline and seat pitch. Economy on MH 737s is POOR, with no recline seats. Pay the extra money and fly business, with MHUpgrade. A 50% bid usually will win you an upgrade"

Pros: "Not Satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "Price was great and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "All food and even water cost money. The check in line took extremely long. The seat was not padded enough so I was sitting on a lump the whole trip"

Cons: "No food. Major delay without announcement"

Pros: "Crew was professional and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "It is almost a given that most domestic flights to Manila are delayed and our flight was 1 hour and 10 min delayed. Fortunately, I was getting frequent updates that helped with the planning on when to leave for the airport."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "3 hr delay plus I got bumped off my return flight"

Pros: "Did not like the flight at all."
Cons: "5 1/2 hour flight- not even water was offered. Better explanation of baggage allowances. I got a shock of paying an extra $962 U SD . We were coming from international flight and did not have to pay for baggage’s . Had I been informed of baggage cost I would have selected a different carrier."

Pros: "Host clearly and ver friendly helped me."
Cons: "Im sorry but seat was terrible. I was not comfortable even for a min. Thanks."

Cons: "Cebu always changes gates..what a fiasco. Its like a cattle herd everytime, they are so disorganized!! Then always late and they blame late arrival of aircraft and then blame the traffic at the airport..it gets so old!! Two hour delay today....really cebu must have the worst on time arrivals of any airline!!??? And what happen to boarding special needs first...the gate agents must be idiots they started taking everyone thru both lines...the wheel chair and elderly and children were rammed in with the shoving hoards because they processed both at the same time..it was a fiasco as usual. What happen to board by rows?? I realize late departure but this in no way helped speed ghe plane on its way...uuugggh"

Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"
Cons: "Too cold in the aircrat"

Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."

Cons: "It was almost 3 hours delayed."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The seats by the window were large which was nice."
Cons: "They charge you for snacks and drinks. Despite the low price I already paid for the ticket and those amenities should be automatically included."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Hidden fees..Baggage fees are ridiculous..Just skip this airline,and pay the extra for,Philippine,Air..The price is really the same"

Pros: "Flights On Time... Crew's awesome"
Cons: "Foid is terrible"

Pros: "Thank you for the great services."

Pros: "While booking I tried to buy luggage allowance. Impossible. Hence at check-in Cebu Pacific unpleasant staff charged me US$55 on top of a $100 fare for my normal suitcase of clothes. The worst theft in my travel history of 110 countries world wide. Shameless greed and extortion once they have your trapped. It gets worse. Due family reasons I needed to fly home a couple days early, having every reason to believe my ticket was flexible. Nowhere did it say otherwise, nor did the booking site warn me. But rudely I was told too bad, zero flexibility. ZERO! They had empty seats on many suitable flights, just wanted to steal my return ticket, simple. Theft. Extortion. The worst imaginable. I went ahead and bought a 2nd return ticket with Philippines Airlines (far far superior airline). My Cebu Pacific seat was zero refund and was sold to someone else I guess. Too bad for Stupid Mr Customer (me) who mistakenly flies Cebu Pacific! NEVER EVER FLY CEBU PACIFIC! This 71-year-old 110-country travel veteran has warned you factually. An utterly disgusting company whose staff indifferently spits in the face of customers, the rudeness is delivered in a could-not-care-less tone followed by a hang up the phone after saying "No way, it's impossible speak to the travel agent for help. good-bye. Click.""
Cons: "REPEATING THE WORST EVER. While booking I tried to buy luggage allowance. Impossible.

Click.""

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."

Pros: "Can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Unforeseen luggage charges that were way too expensive. Would not have flown the airline had I realized they charged for luggage on international flights. The charge was about $150, for the same luggage I brought with me for free on two prior international flights that were part of the same trip, on much better airlines for about the same ticket price. I could have tolerated a charge of $50, but I found $150 to be outrageous. Seats were narrow, legs hit the back of the seat in front. No need for such a configuration, since the flight was only 1/3 full. I won't fly Cebu Pacific again. Congratulations, you lost my business."

Cons: "Its a shame—Singapore is a first-class city and its people are beautiful; except for one zealous person who made it her goal to ruin Singapore. Cebu Pacific (MNL) required our umbrella to be checked-in without incurring additional expense since it does not make sense to charge us because the umbrella price is way less than the shipping cost. However, Cebu Pacific (SGN) Counter Supervisor was rigid and unprofessional; she wouldn’t listen to reasons and logic. She said that this is SGN and not MNL and therefore, its totally different. She was correct because we were able to go home and security did not say anything about our umbrella. Basically, we do not have to check-in our umbrella in the first place. But the Supervisor was adamant and combative regarding our umbrella. We told her we’ll just throw it in the trash can instead of shipping it."

Pros: "Affordable price"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Disorganised handling of passengers"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "It’s 4hrs flight and they didn’t even offer not a free water you have to pay for food ? This is international flight for crying out loud. It’s not worth for what you pay for worst airline ever."

Pros: "Nice modern plane, great crew."
Cons: "Modern compact seats not very comfortable, and very little kneeroom. But fair prices, so overall a good value."

Pros: "I like it because I arrived in Hong Kong earlier than the time we expect. So well done!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Very good check-in"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit. I didn’t buy anything to eat so can’t comment on that also there’s not really entertainment on board"

Cons: "Our flight was 1 hr late!"

Cons: "One of the tightest legroom. Said they were giving out sim cards but never got one even after asking for one. It was ok that we didn't get one but not ok that 2 crew members said they will get us one and never did. If you don't have it, just honestly say you don't have enough. Or just don't offer it in the first place!! No drinks... not even a glass of water without having you pay for it."

Cons: "In addition to lack of communication of any updates from the staff"

Cons: "Airline has very strict overweight policy and will charge you even if you are a few grams above 7 kg... not nice, not friendly and left a bad taste in my mouth. I will surly try to avoid venus Pacific in the future of possible."

Cons: "Crew were so slow to take food orders. It wasn't free and not everyone wanted to order so I didn't see any other reason."

Cons: "Flight delayed"
