Pros: "Food only pork and no other choice"

Cons: "Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "Delayed flight for almost two hours while all passengers were already inside the plane( korea to manila) . So hot inside the plane, no air condition, no food, no comfort measures given to passengers. They should have not let passengers to board knowing that there is mechanical problem. It would have been more comfortable if passenger just waited at the airport gate."
Pros: "Meals, comfort, and crew all above average."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "A great flight with friendly staff, comfy seats, good food, and great inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The international transfer process at Manila airport was the worst I’ve ever seen. They had about 20 people standing at a desk for about 90 minutes with no explanation as to what was going on. In that time, nobody was released to go to their gate, but they wouldn’t explain what was happening. There were about 10 airport staff standing there, mostly doing nothing. The process was inefficient, to say the least. There was no place to sit, no toilets, no order to any of it. In most international airports, after you deplane, you just walk to your next gate. There seemed to be no logical reason for that awful experience. It would have been much faster to go through customs and then go through security, walking directly to the gate."
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"

Cons: "The check in counter service is terrible. Very unprofessional with terrible attitude. Can not pronounce the gate number clearly. After I clear up with him, he started gossiping with his colleague as it was my fault for not comprehending his English. How did Cathay Pacific become this way?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Food even for short flights"
Pros: "seats that i selected was change when we enter the boarding gate without informing us"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed 45 in Chicago due to ice on the wings. Then about 10 mins of holding to land. With a 90 min lay over, unboarding and reboarding was rushed......but Cathay and security did their best I feel, It was only a 90 min flight and I didn't eat or watch a movie."
Cons: "Again, being 6-4, I struggle with comfort and after having no time to rest while switching planes, I was exhausted when I arrived in Manila."

Cons: "Flight was late. I understand that there could be unexpected problems. But please do not say that due to 'operational reasons'. Sounds like BS. Tell us he actual reason. Arrived late, engine problems, passenger missing, etc."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "That they continuously made mistakes and wasted my time and money. Let alone no sleep and carrying everything to 3 different terminals not completing my trip on any of them. Now I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone in a hotel in Hong Kong instead of meeting my gfs family and sleeping with her the first time in Manila."
Pros: "We arrived late again."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it""
Pros: "All was good until missed connection"
Cons: "Missed connection due to late arrival. CP switched us to AC. 7 hour layover"
Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding was slow. We had to wait for connecting passsangers. Delay ruined the experience. We didn’t leave in a timely manner. Flight crew was nice. There was a male crew member from LAX to Hong Kong, I could heard talking to the other crew members and he was using profanity. Nothing aggressive but not professional in my opinion.

Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Pros: "The fight took off and landed in good time."
Cons: "I expected dinner but got a pie with water. My IFE system acted up a little. Programmes were not great."

Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"

Pros: "Good staff and inflight crew service/attitude."
Cons: "Poor IFE and snacks"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."
Cons: "The business seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Almost 4 hours. Reason 'traffic." Lame"
Pros: "3 meals, drinks, pillow, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste and sleep mask were included. Staff was friendly and kind. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Great staff, pleasant cabin temperature and seats, lovely staff, and super quick boarding/unboarding."
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: "No monitor"
Pros: "Wide seats."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous at times."
Cons: "The poor service at the Sydney airport. Not having my special meal and not being flexible enough onboard to compensate or resolve the situation. (I mean, why not have extra vegetarian options available; and beef being the only option is unacceptable for so many reasons, including that there are some religions that don't allow beef.) Lack of wifi and entertainment for an 8 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal - way better than delta"
Cons: "Everything, so I bought a ticket back with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "i would like to suggest that if there be any chance that vegetarian meals for vegetarians can also be served during international flights. Thank you so much! So far so goog! Keep up!"
Pros: "That the plane took off on time and landed ahead of schedule - not like the trip down to Sydney"
Cons: "The entertainment system is non existent and is something that needs to be addressed. The food was a bit better than what was served on the trip down to Sydney but also needs to improve."
Cons: "The staff were unprofessional. They seldom smile and it's as if they are still in apprenticeship. Also, I hate it when they don't serve meals when the seatbelt sign is on. I understand in the case of hot beverages"

Pros: "The lower level cabin attendant did her best to make a better impression than her supervisor. I am grateful to her."
Cons: "The purser was not even polite. Was it because she was veiled and I was wearing a cross? I really hope not. The normal economy seats are cramped to an unacceptable level. I will avoid flying MH economy again. Malindo, a low-cost flying the same routes (SGN-KUL and KUL-CMB) I often fly, has a much better level of service than MH, supposedly a full service airline."

Cons: "Many hours delay at Miri, MAS staff abandoned posts so they didn't have to deal with passengers. Apalling service"
Cons: "The crew at the check in counter were generally helpful and courteous, however the staff on the flight we're often short or generally rude; thus continuing the airlines reputation for poor service. The food wasn't great either, but we knew to expect this and brought food purchased from Sydney airport (which was a saving grace)!"
Pros: "Service and integtity"
Pros: "Nothing other than the connection time and the airport was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hrs then took them another hour to departure from JED to KUL. The airplane was an old 330 with shitty bathrooms, and I can't forget how one of crew keeped knocking on me in the toilet and he actually opened the door and said nothing at all which pissed me off,because I work for airline company and I had been in many once before but that behavior is amature once from supposedly experienced Crew member. Anyway save your money and time and avoid this airlines."

Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."
Pros: "The flight was fairly typical. However, it left on time and arrived on time. This was a positive."
Cons: "As usual, the flight was completely full. Everyone carries on as many bags as allowed and there is no bin space for all the luggage. I bring only my briefcase and had to search for space."

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing special on this flight. Entertainment system didn't actually work at the beginning for everyone on board and had to be rebooted. you would think everything would be thoroughly checked prior to a flight. It started to work about an hour later into the flight."
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."
