Excellent 9.2

Pros: I’ve been on dozens of flights prior to this one, this is the first flight I’ve really enjoyed. The service was so good that I was smiling in my seat thinking how great this is. The food was delicious! And free! And very high quality. Coconut, pistachios, frittata, muesli, omelette. Amazing!

Cons: Best airline ever! Add movies though, everyone loves staring into lit screens while the world passes by them, quite literally in this case.

Cons: PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL

Pros: Good food.

Cons: The lost my luggage from Manila to Bangkok. I had to travel on to Phuket without my luggage for 4 days. It was mind over matter to get to speak to anyone. I called 3 to 4 times a day to get my luggage. What a nightmare. I had to by extra clothes to survive. Nothing like flying 15.5 hrs, 5 hrs.

Pros: MU had been terrible on this trip. My flight MU544 was delayed from 00:55am to 12:10pm due to weather in Shanghai as they said. This made me miss my next flight to HNL. Next day i’m flying to LA and hotel they put me in in shanhgai was terrible :(

Cons: Could be honest about delay cause. Could put stranded passengers in better hotel rooms and not make strangers share a room. Could send bigger van so everyone and their luggages fit. (I have pics of packed van)

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.
