Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic patient & I couldn’t get my aisle seat so, I had to wake up my both side passenger too often. Missing my Hindi movies."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, crew was good"
Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful, the kind of people I wish that I could have spent time to get to know."
Cons: "It would have been really nice to have taller seats. I’m only a little over 6’3” with shoes on and the seats were still quit short and uncomfortable for me."
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "Outstanding service as always - ANA rocks!"
Cons: "Too many (redundant) service announcements. Suggest simplifying and keeping them short and less repetitive to avoid inconvenience, esp while enjoying entertainment."

Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."
Cons: "It was too hot in the plane. The plane lacked individual cooling control. We mentioned how warm it was to the flight attendant. It did cool down momentarily, but remained uncomfortably hot the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"
Pros: "service..service..service and ontime performance"
Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."
Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"

Cons: "I didn't like part of the journey to USA to be run by UNITED."
Cons: "Disappointed that they would not do anything to allow my son and I to sit together. I ended up in a window seat and my son was in a middle seat 5 rows apart. You would think they could find some combination of a middle & window by moving a couple of single travelers but NO. Kept saying that it was a full flight so no go. It's not like we demanded an aisle seat. Just left a "bad taste in my mouth". Not the ANA service that I am used too."

The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."

Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "Food not hood"
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"

Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."

Cons: "Old B777-200 with small personal screen. And they don't have pillows on board."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."

Pros: "Friendly and approachable"
Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."

Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."

Cons: "Good everything"
Pros: "Very great!"
Cons: "Very great time!"
Pros: "Wide variety of entertainment choices made time go much faster."

Cons: "Could have a better"
Cons: "Thieves cut the lock on my luggage and robbed me of valuables during my 2 hr layover in Bangkok. Spoiled my trip"

Cons: "luggages delayed for nearly one hr. Many ppl waiting for luggage at the luggage bell"

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "It was very organized ."
Cons: "Nothing ."
Pros: "Your system Kayak in general"
Cons: "You do not know what has happend to the bookings of your customers. With some routes, I completed my trips, then, you still run marketing email on those. For cancellation, even you still hold my original amount of money once placing booking, then, you charged again the second time for cancellation fees"
Pros: "China Airlines has generally been a step above the average. The name is a bit represented as this is really a Taiwan Run and based airline that has been influenced by the western business practice."
Pros: "Fly China airlines you won't be sorry"
Cons: "They damaged my luggage"
Cons: "Older entertainment system and still decent"
Cons: "I dont eat pork and both meals have pork in it."
Cons: "Curry chicken noodles"
Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."

Pros: "Very good."
Pros: "Entertainment - good choices of movies and newer LCDs."
Cons: "Compared to Delta where they proactively offer unli cocktails and drinks to business class and comfort, I've never had one offer in my return trip. Had a technical malfunction twice which caused me to miss my 7am connecting flight by 2 mins. The next plane didn't even bother to wear for 2 mins even if they caused the delay. They gave a 250NT lunch voucher and asked to what til the next flight in the afternoon. That was the longest flight I experienced coming from New York."

Cons: "Delayed boarding and take off."
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Pros: "Great crew. Old plane. Late arrival. Great food."
Cons: "Business class seats are old."
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"

Pros: "The crew was good and professional. Friendly."
Cons: "Conduct an organized boarding procedure instead of just allowing anyone to board without making any prior announcements."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seat was excellent"

Cons: "More information about the terminals"
Pros: "not any games to play on the behind seat screen, it helps to pass the time..."
Cons: "The food was just ok,,,,could have been better.."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The screens were all broken. There was no food or water for 10 hours and the flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "The PAL Pilot and Cabin crew was very attentive and friendly. they showed professionalism to every passengers they have encountered. They were very attentive to the needs of each passenger due to 3 hrs delayed arrival. The food taste really good (Strawberry shortcake + chicken penne with red sauce). The plane is well cleaned."
Cons: "I have experienced 1 hr delay departure + 3 hours waiting inside the plane to land, but it was because of uncontrolled situation (force majuere). but despite of the delay, for me PAL served its finest world class service."
Cons: "the business class seats were not comfortable, badly designed. also it seems some staff (i think manager) are just sitting around, only one young guy was really doing all the work."
Cons: "The business seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "New A350 plane with excellent business class and great service, food and the entire James Bond movie collection on the entertainment system..."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late after the captain said we would have an on-time departure. Terminal 1 at MNL is just aweful!"
Cons: "It was all good, the crew were very accomodating and keeping us comfortable during the flight. It became uncofortable midflight because of one passenger, named Rachelle Marie Perez Herrera Lim sitting in 54 B started to complain about one female crew. She was unreasonable, unccoperative."
Pros: "Yes crew and plane were ok."
Pros: "There was some form of entertainment that they provided in the form of iPads so I didn't feel bored on the flight as I have trouble sleeping on flights. Because Dubai has an issue with transferring my bags, the airline did find and place my bag on the next flight"
Cons: "Some of the programs had audio only and no videos. The food on the flight was subpar at best, the breakfast meal had scrambled eggs that had no form at all. THEY WERE RUNNY EGGS AND HAD THE CONSISTENCY OF BABY FOOD. Dubai has a habit of not transferring my checked bag to my continuing flight. And Dubai placed me on the wrong bus upon arrival so I couldn't get my bag to transfer my bag"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and was quick to address any needs of the customers"
Cons: "Better choice of foods"
Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."
Pros: "Had to upgrade to sit at the bulkhead area. Seating areas are too tight."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom smelled very bad."
Pros: "I liked being able to have seat selection, one checked baggage and a snack, even if it was simple"
Cons: "Having to wait in the tarmac for 45 minutes.. I would ha e rather wait at the terminal where there is WiFi and more space.."
Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."
Cons: "My checkin luggage with my powerbank and my nintendo switch left controller was confiscated. I only find out when I arrived home and I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Great on-board service. Also, the food was very good for such a short flight."
Cons: "Inexplicable why the counter staff in Taipei would not begin issuing boarding passes until 4:05PM for a flight that LEAVES at 6:35PM! I was very concerned that the huge line would prevent me from processing through security and make the flight."
Pros: "The staff was friendly."
Cons: "The airplane was over booked, there was not enough food for everyone, the food was stale and expired, the bathrooms exuded a stench to which you had to endure throughout the entore flight, there was not enough crew so requesting things took very long and we had turbulence for 90% of the flight, on a flight that was 11 hours long."
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: "Once you got on the plane, the flight crew themselves were great."
Cons: "There was nothing about the airport and transfer experience to like. Going: The transfer from terminals was near impossible to figure out. There was no help and no signs to assist. Coming: They allowed us to transfer to the international terminal where we were made to wait 8 hours OUTSIDE the terminal area. There were few seats, it was cold and NO food venders. Will NEVER fly into Manilla again."
Pros: "I like the direct flight to Vancouver"
Cons: "I checked in early and was given a middle seat. I have back problems and walk with a cane and asked at the check in desk if I could have a window or aisle. I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward."
Pros: "Legroom is wider than cheap airline, service is better. Ticket price is able to compete with cheap airline. What should a traveler ask more for?"
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: "Nothing..... I guess once the plane arrived, things worked normally"
Cons: "8 hour delay"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Seats are too Small"
Pros: "PAL express from LAX to Manila had accommodation for their passangers"
Cons: "I could not connect to WiFi even though it was free."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties. 9 pm delayed then new flight next day around 10/11am"
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: "Seats were very small. Think Asian size. I am 5foot 10 inches and it was a struggle to sit there for 3 hours. There is no tv on the plane. They want you to use your personal device which I would not do as this would drain my battery. There is no charging station on the plane. 3 out of the 4 PAL flights were delayed each by two hours or more. I would not take this airline again. I got a cheap fare of $600 roundtrip and now I know why it was so cheap. The airport in Manila is so shitty limited seating and limited choices of food."
Cons: "My outbound flight (Manila to Taipei) was rescheduled so I had to make alternative plans. On the day itself, we were told that the flight was cancelled with very little warning. I wasted a total of 8 hours waiting to be put on another flight. They transferred us to the cheaper Cebu Pacific flight that left 5 hours later (at 10 pm!) than the PAL flight. Most horrible flying experience I've ever had in my entire life and I've been flying internationally for almost 20 years. Their customer service is terrible, not transparent and not helpful. They took longer than necessary to rebook people to other flights. Completely horrible. I have another flight booked with PAL that I can no longer cancel, but after that one, never flying them again!"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal - way better than delta"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful. Food was enjoyable."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Got worse as hours went by. Business class in front of my seat sat empty the entire trip. I understand everybody cannot be upgraded but I paid extra for aisle seat and extra leg room. Maybe passengers that paid extra for seats could get an upgrade when available? It would have been a nice treat to be able to sit in a seat that was actually comfortable. I guess the padding gets worn down from all the passenger travel an that's understandable but for passengers with 13-15 hr trips, sleeping isn't an option really and the seats are just not soft enough. Perhaps a nominal $100 upgrade fee when seats are empty in business class? I'm assuming the reason business was empty is it's just too expensive? Maybe a price adjustment is in order rather than letting those seats sit empty? Overall, the flight was a pleasant experience. The seat situation was just a blemish on the trip. I will continue to use Philippine Airlines though probably in the future. Thank you."
Cons: "The food was disgusting The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours however there was no information given the ought the delay"
Cons: "We boarded the plane approx on time but we were sitting for a while when an announcement asked for 2 passengers to identify themselves with the crew. Nothing more was said until we were now 40 minutes past departure time and the Captain comes on to say we were waiting for a take off slot from the Air Traffic Control!!! No apologies or advice as to what had happened. We finally were on the runway at approx 12 midnight or 1 hr 25 mins late. To top it all I get an email from PAL at 1.56am (I saw this after arrival of course) which said the plane had changed its arrival time to 9.30am - but the departure time remained the same!!! How am I also going to receive an email when I am already flying?? Food was aweful Entertainment system was also aweful - my future flights on PAL will be only a last resort"

Pros: "Web checkin and Baggage Drop were precise which saved time. Few passengers do not matter these two (2) important features but this is efficiency to a minimum!"
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."
Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food. The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"
Cons: "Temperature was very low."
Pros: "comfort and entertainment"
Pros: "Rapid boarding"
Cons: "Food was not very nice"
Pros: "The regular plane was swapped out for the A380"

Cons: "Could do with more legroom, tall people exist"
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: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Forced to check a carry-on used all over the world for years. Then they lose it"
Pros: "The boarding is a bit mess up as it was delayed by Malindo Air which share the same gate, I wonder Malaysia Airport authorities has run out of resources why cramp 2 airlines in same gate departing 30 minutes apart, crew is OK seats is comfortable but landing is quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and landing"
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."
Pros: "The first and second flight of the four were on time. The food was surprisingly pretty good- probably some of the best airplane food I've had. Not much variety, but still good. One of the four flights had entertainment, and the movies were of good selection."
Cons: "Planes poorly taken care of inside. First flight back delayed so long, missed our connection. Ended up having to stay in KL, where the hotel they put us in was an hour away from the airport. No direction, terrible communication. The attendant in Bali lied to me, knowingly. I had to miss a day of work due to this. And this all could have been avoided if they would have held the second plane just 30 more minutes."
Pros: "the staff were pleasant"
Cons: "the food was ok as I like spicy. But one mouthful of water and a small wine. soft drink, etc was not enough on a 4 hour flight. Leg room was very bad. I am average hight 5 ft 10 inch but could only sit sideways aas not enough room"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food is not good"
Cons: "I was having 10hrs of layover in Malaysia, the airline neither facilitates with any transit lounge, room, and lunch. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"
Cons: "The food, at least it was better than the food out of KUL"
Pros: "Took off on time, landed early, business class cabin was comfortable and food was ok."
Pros: "Nothing much"

Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"
Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."
Pros: "The ice cream is a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "prepacked juice. Could be more option."
Pros: "Flight was full ...so felt cramped. Towards back of plane so only 1 toilet. The Veg pie was slightly warm and unappetising , took 1 bite and left rest. Steward saw this and gave me extra peanuts instead. The brekkie was awfulll, the supposed scrambled eggs was congealed into the shape of the holder and again lukewarm the grilled tomatoe looked washed out....unappetiising...so ate the squahed croissant , yoghurt and fruit. What happened to international food standards . Crew was nice...though if wanted water later on had to get yourself.They didn't come around much offering water before Brekkie. No game option eg Sudoku on Entertainment site. My bag come off carousel more scratched than with other Airlines, so poor handling. Disembarked by stairs at Sydney Airport near Cargo plane area and had bus to Airport. Never had that before on an International flight , so took much longer to get into terminal....last thing you want after a long flight."
Cons: "The first meal that was given was poor. a single roll for the fist of two meals offered on an 8 hour flight, is the poorest meal i have had on a flight of this duration."
Pros: "Although I only gave it 4 for comfort, that is mainly because it wasn't a fully reclinable seat which I don't think it's available on a 737. Otherwise the level of service from the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Relatively little to complain of. As noted above the lack of a fully reclining seat is due to the aircraft type in general. Otherwise no complaints."
