The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "In flight entertainment systems"
Cons: "I had beef with mashed potatoes but I found the beef was quite tough."

Cons: "There was not much leg room in the seatings"
Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."

Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "Free seat next to me. Brilliant entertainment Very tasty food Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing! Best daytime flight to europe! And home before midnight"
Pros: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."

Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."

Cons: "My husband reacted to the spicy beef/rice dish served for breakfast."
Cons: "Earphones were poor and when replaced still did t work well"
Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"
Thai Smile must be the only airline in the world that still doesn’t allow mobiles and iPads to be used during taxi, takeoff and landing. No inflight service due to COVID but a little snack and water handed out as we left the plane. I also like the deplaning by row, I wish more airlines did this
Pros: "We forgot to pack our liquid products into the check in baggage. After we went through the security check, we brought the liquid products back to the boarding pass counter, our baggage had already been sent to downstream. But the staffs was very helpful, they provided a box, packed the liquid products for us and checked it in as the second luggage. This solved our headache and it was a huge deal for us, making us smile. Thanks to your crew/staffs again."
Cons: "Providing some snacks would be helpful when getting off the board."
Cons: "We got drinking water after landing. Would be better to provide some snacks on the way out."
Pros: "Brilliantly safety-conscious crew but very personable."
Cons: "It would been very nice to not have to board a shuttle bus to be taken to the flight in BKK."
Pros: "The crew was the most expert crew I have seen. I fly thousands of miles every year. Their alertness to safety was unprecedented for me. In Yangon the counter personnel were equally excellent, safety-conscious and personable."

Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"

Pros: "Easy to book, travel and get around with."
Cons: "The on board snack isn’t great."
Pros: "Friendly staff overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue is there is no alchohol on these flights."
Pros: "We paid for a thai international flight which includes allowing us to use the lounge. We were told in china that WE was the airline not thai international and we could not use the lounge, had no baggage allowance other than the minimum. We chose TG because it was star alliance and we are permanent lifetime gold members. There is no reason to pay a premium for TG if it is not a TG flight and we cannot use the lounge or have a low baggage limit. The check in staff noted our bags were exactly 20 kgs each and said there would be a charge of USD45 per kilo if we had exceeded that amount. This is ridiculous given that we should have the same as UA or SG."
Cons: "I have already mentioned the false advertising and poor service in china. TG cannot tell its loyal customers it is a TG flight and then charge for TG and then say it is not a TG flight. Nothing works right in China but i hope now that we are in thailand TG will honor its normal benefits to star alliance gold and platinum members. Otherwise, we wont fly TG any more."
Pros: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Cons: "Vegetarian food option"
Pros: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Not Allowed to read on my kindle in airplane mode. Made for dry boring and long flight!!!"
Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"
Cons: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."
Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."
Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"
Cons: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"
Pros: "Ground and in flight service, food, aircraft"
Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."
Pros: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."

Pros: "Such a quick flight Bangkok to Phuket, I wouldn't expect food, especially on Thai Smile which I think is the economy version of regular Thai Air, but they had very neat pre packed snack bags with Shu Mai. Efficient staff, always love flying Thai Air."

Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Pros: "their services in the plain and they are very discipline as well"
Cons: "they don't do well in their transit point they should employ more people who speaks English to direct passengers in the airport. English is international language so they should train some people to direct passengers who comes there everyday"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Pros: "Friendly crew Good food Clean plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. The gate agent herded us all toward a set of doors but didn't open them for about 5 min."
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."
Pros: "The food is great, nice entertainment, we good travel essentials!"
Cons: "One of the crews looked a little grumpy. I was referring to the lady who was handing out food. She was not at all happy everytime she serves the meal."
Pros: "Service, timing of flight, entertainment system."
Cons: "There used to be more variety of food choices."
Pros: "Nobody wants to sit on a plane for 10-14 hours but Turkish airlines made it enjoyable! Excellent customer service. We had plenty of beverages, sleeping kits, a wide range of entertainment on the screens, and they had my vegetarian meals ready. Always friendly and helpful."

Cons: "It was very hot during the entire flight."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."
Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."
Pros: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."

Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."
Pros: "Everything was great! Flight iand boarding was on time and the service provided by crew was simply the best. I enjoyed the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."

Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfortable. For airline food, it was actually pretty tasty. The in-flight entertainment was very good. I wish Vietnam Air was available in the States!"
Cons: "Was denied entrance fir my wife to the lounge even having two passes both in my name. Was given one in Da Nang however lounge not open at 4:30 AM. My wife was traveling economy I was in business. Nasty reception at the Vietnam Air lounge in Hanoi. The other lounge great not affiliated with Vietnam."
Cons: "They changed the time without notice and wouldn’t even accept checked baggage."

I feel I cannot use Kayak in China anymore."

Cons: "The choice of English language films were limited. I did not enjoy the food too much"

Pros: "Good boarding process, punctual,great cabin service"
Cons: "Baggage arrival"
Pros: "Crew and airplane were great!"
Cons: "Food was not as good as I'd remembered on previous trips."
Pros: "A modern aircraft - the Boeing Dreamliner with plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Only two check-in counters were available. The waiting time for check in was, therefore, quite long, and the time was very tight until the boarding. The seat allocation was horrible, and I was surrounded by nasty neighbors, who were chatting throughout the 10+hour flight, even after my verbal warning, not to mention the way children were taken care of. I am not blaming children making noise. I am blaming the lack of control over the parents who bring noisy toys for children and play videos loud enough to disturb the neighbor's sleep throughout the flight."
Pros: "The evening meal was far better than the mystery cold cuts and drowned slaw on the daytime flight out of Hanoi. Crew were pro -- if a little terse at times. Pilot launched and landed the aircraft successfully, always a big plus in my books."
Cons: "Seat was hard and somewhat uncomfortable. I wanted bottomless refills of white wine but the stewardesses had other ideas. Pours were on the skimpy side, too. Passengers were fiddling with their damned devices during takeoff and landing, and the crew shoulda laid down the law there."
Pros: "The schedule on time"
Pros: "The whole flight"
Cons: "Nil by"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't switched on immediately after take off and safety demos"
Pros: "Airplane food is usually drab & this fish in chili sauce was really tasty. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Miss channels fir tv or music or movies. No wi-fi"
Pros: "Legroom, comfortable seats, window darkening technology allowed quite a bit of sleep on board."
Cons: "Computer changed our Premium Economy seat allocation, separating us but not told until boarding. Then it was a hassle while they rearranged other people on board and tried to tell us it was caused by us checking in late whereas we'd been among the first."
Pros: "The crew was really polite, nice and helpful, a good change for someone that uses Chinese airlines"
Cons: "The food was really dreadful and I am used to the Chinese airlines standards so the bar is really low. Beef or pork as options, the meat was really bad"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "plane a little old"
Pros: "Good weather and a quick smooth flight"
Cons: "They kept shutting the lights off. The plane was very hot when we first boarded. In the air the air conditioner slowly began to cool off the plane."
Pros: "Food was nice and plane was clean and not too crowded."
Cons: "Before and during flight the plane released a gas into the seating area that made us feel sick, with a headache, and suddenly feeling very sleepy. Right after we got off the plane, we suddenly felt better. If we didn't get a sick feeling, the flight would have been good."
Pros: "Easy to change flight. Lots of leg room. Friendly service."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "seats seem "cheap" plastic. They crackle as you move in them and don't seem to be a very high quality."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike about this flight"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:15 pm. We decided to grab a quick bite to eat before boarding. Our boarding pass indicated that boarding would begin at 6:45. They called "final boarding" at 6:35, just as we were wrapping up. I believe we were the last to board at about 6:35 or 6:40. Once we were on board the plane pulled away and departed a full half-hour before schedule. The early departure was welcome, but unexpected and made us feel more rushed than necessary without prior notice."
Pros: "For flying overseas the airplane was old and uncomfortable. I've flown overseas before and the seats have been a lot more comfy. The crew was fantastic and the food just crappy like any plane food."
Cons: "The seats and the food."
Cons: "There was no luggage requirment on my flight plan. I thought that it was 32 kg since it was international flight. At the counter I wad told I am over 20 kg allowed on that flight since this fligh was code shared with Vietnam Airlines but operated by Cambodia Angkor Airlines. After manager intervention my suitcase was accepted. I would appreciate clear communication about allowed suitcade weight on code shared flights."
Pros: "Managed to take off close to scheduled time despite inclement weather. Offered disposable raincoats for passengers for transfer from tarmac bus to plane. Staff are always polite and courteous."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken and only had fish. Not a fan of fish. Was offered "chicken or fish" but when I selected chicken there was none!!! Not a fan of the bus transfer."
Pros: "The rolls were warm. That is literally the only positive thing I have to say."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled, which I wasn't alerted to until after I arrived at the airport. They booked me on another one leaving 2 hours later, which was delayed by about another 5 hours. I suppose it was the weather, but a flight going to the same destination on the same airline managed to take off on time, and it was supposed to be leaving 40 minutes after my second flight. I have a hard time believing it was the weather, but who knows? There were absolutely zero gatw agents there to offer any helpful information. They eventually gave us food vouchers, but it was about 5 minutes after 90 percent of the applicable restaurants closed. Everyone on the flight was forced to eat at dairy queen, which quickly ran out of everything anyone wanted. I will never fly Vietnam Airlines again."
Cons: "I received at least 4 emails from Vietnam Airlines prior to my visit informing me of changes in our booking. All added time to our layover in either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh on our return. Once we arrived in Hanoi we were informed of 2 more delays in our departure. I am traveling alone with 3 children all under 12 yrs &I make a concerted effort to book flight with the shortest layover possible. What would have been a 10hr door to door travel time turned into 16 hrs. Needless to say, I will not fly Vietnam Airlines by choice again."
Pros: "No baggage charge."
Pros: "Good value over all, good on board entertainment"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Excellent experience and service. Appreciated the transfer process and shuttle service in Manila fromTerminal 2 to Terminal 1 to make the connection to NYC. Very smooth and efficient with a a 2 hour window to do all the security checks etc. Very good communications."
Cons: "All very good except the VGML could be better and more creative."
Pros: "Gates was opened on time and the staffs already scanned the boarding pass while waiting for the actual boarding. This is efficient and saved time."
Cons: "Passengers were already queueing in the checkin while waiting for Oman Air to finish their checkin. This created piles of passengers waiting for the checkin counters to open."
Cons: "Very dense seating. Essentially it's like a budget airlines: very dense seating, no IFE. Blankets are given only on request"
Cons: "The terminal for Phillipine airlines is greatly lacking. There are hardly any amenities and unless you get there before 0900 the next connecting flight is not until 2300. There need to be improvements on at least one for us to ever fly this route again."
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."
Cons: "Ventilation/in flight air conditioning, checkin lanes and waiting time"
Cons: "The PAL terminal in MNL is one of the worst airports in the world. PAL's in flight service is fine. But they really need to improve their terminal if they want to keep customers"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and fake leather. Staff were surly."
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "A little more leg room."
Pros: "Crew was fine, FOOD HORRIBLE, NO BLANKETS NO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM, AND WE WERE 70 MIN LATE AGAIN"
Cons: "They are never ontime, over 100 flights in 2 yrs with them and 85 % of time they are delayed and very late, usually 45 min up to 90 min i've flown 245 flights in 3 yrs, the 2nd worst airline I have to deal with,"
Pros: "The flight, service, hospitality."
Pros: "More stores are taking US $, there is a small duty free shopping area. These are improvements."
Cons: "air conditioning was not working in the terminal. It far too small for the amount of passengers. Connecting flight was delayed for two hours!"
Pros: "Attentive, polite,, cheerful attendants, very service oriented. Very nice airplane and nice business class at very good price."
Pros: "Business class from Bangkok to San Francisco was good overall, especially for $1400 one way. Food was not very good for business class, was more in line with JAL, EVA, Korean or ANA econo class but again, for the price, no complaints. Great friendly service, quick boarding. Priority Pass didn't have a lounge in Manila but thankfully, Philippines Air had their own lounge with great food and drinks for 1st Class and Business class ticket holders. Plane from BKK to Manila was NICE and comfy, all latest technology with beautiful fully adjustable chairs that lay flat. Would fly with them again!"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "Food was good. My dinner was beef with noodles. Check in was fast. Boarding and plane departure was on time. We arrived Manila Airport 15 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board."
Pros: "The airline is great! The airport is horrible, not enough toliets, no place to sit down to eat. Standup tables is all! Too small for for passing travelers, not enough place to sit!"
Pros: "Great food and free wine. American carriers should learn about service from Phillipines Airlines!"
Cons: "Better entertainment options would be nice, but I needed a nap anyway."
Pros: "LLeg room for seats. Newer aircrFT Staff pleasant Food edable"
Cons: "Same shows and movies on different segments of flights. Same shows etc 4 weeks later on return trips, 15 to 11 hours long time. Also limited selection Red wine undrinkable What would stop me flying again next year! Manila Airport!!!! Small cramped smelly. Most food shacks do not take credit card and no atms to get cash, come on this is 2018. Also my wife was unable to get her seats confirmed in Thailand for comection in Manila to Vancouver which meant having to line up in the basement in Manila and then argue that we wanted our seats together for the long haul home."
Pros: "Arrival to first flight was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "During flight- attendant would put her hands all over the cups when filling up water etc. I could not even get water after watching how she handled things that guests would be drinking out of. The flight was - freezing. I turned my light on, no one came to me. I then went and found an attendent (2 different times) and discussed that it was very very cold. I asked to see if they had another blanket, they said no. They didn't do much to change the temperature. I watched for 15 minutes, and no one went to change it. Once they did, it didn't help the situation. Later I requested again, and similarly nothing happened. The food- terrible. Dried up hashbrowns, that were overcooked. Meat, I couldn't even eat."
Pros: "Normal flight. It was fine"
Cons: "The transit lounge was awful. Only water available & only 1 ladies toilet. Very crowded & noisy. The staff sat outside the lounge talking & did nothing about what was going on inside the lounge. Needs alot of attention"
Pros: "The airport exclusive for PAL, smooth landing."
Cons: "The leg room was too tight , the seats look dirty and old. They run out of choice of food, so they keep on apologizing that you don’t have a choice. But take what ever they have."
Cons: "The choice for the movie was horrible !"
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: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Because of Long lines at Thai immigration, I made it the gate as my Group was boarding. I was afraid I was going to be late."
Pros: "Getting onboard"
Cons: "Being in a cramped seat for 4 hours and I’m 6’2” with disabilities and I can not get no accommodations from your airline"
Pros: "Crew staff were nice and friendly"
Cons: "Lousy plane business class. Seats recline 20 degrees For entertainment. One has to download app Before flight"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants from my flight to Manila from Bangkok was very helpful in getting the ground crew to help me transfer from terminal 2 to terminal 3 by using the transfer bus. One of the taxi drivers wanted to take me for 800 pesos. But not only did I not have to deal with traffic on the street but be cause we were riding on the tarmac we saved a lot of time. Thanks to the helpful flight attendant."
Cons: "We left late from Bangkok and I was afraid I would not make my connection."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines makes it hard to upgrade seats. No on board entertainment."
Cons: "poor food no entertainment terminal 2"
Pros: "4 flights all delayed more than 4 hours."
Cons: "Whoever is in charge of their logistics need to be fired. rheu. An figure it what plane needs to be at what gate when. They tired to buy us off with tuna sandwiches. Their Terminal in Manilla is hands down the worst I have visited. On the flight my TV was broken so I was forced to watch the bald spot on the guy in front of me for 13 hours. Will never fly again."
Cons: "Flight is always late Seats are very small no screen at your seat meals are so-so"
Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed 1.5 hours which became 2.5 hours without notice. Had to run through airport to catch flight back to LAX which almost did not happen. Luggage did not make it despite prior assurances. Luggage was finally delivered more than 24 hours later. Employees were without information and only apologetic after much protest. No compensation offered. Writing formal complaint."
Cons: "The fact that u would not let me board without a leaving ticket. I have a wife and daughter there, and also PI ID. I missed my daughter's birthday. I will never forgive that"
Cons: "Of the four total flights, to include connections, Philippine Airlines was delayed on all legs. The delays were all after boarding and while sitting in plane. Delays ranged from 30 minutes to 75 minutes and all four flight delays were reported to be due to delays in getting baggage on the planes or getting the meals loaded on the planes according to the pilot's reports. Of note, on all four flights, the crew ran out of food before getting to our isle and had only one option remaining with no alternatives for those allergic to any portion of the meal. I would absolutely never recommend Philippine Airlines to anyone. The reduced cost of tickets was absolutely not worth the experience."
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."
Pros: "Ice cream"
Cons: "No monitor"
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "leg room only enough for shorter people. Tall people will have their knees pressed against the seat in front. If you are tall and ask for a bulk-head seat, you will be asked to pay a huge increase in price. Zero consideration will be given to weather the seat is adequate. If you want an adequate seat, you must pay as if you wanted luxury. Also, the food was horrible. Also, even some international flights will have NO entertainment system at all and no means to charge your cell phone so you can entertain yourself."
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Terminal in NAIA"
Pros: "Nothing hated every minute of the cattle car ride from hell"
Cons: "Delays horrible flight attendants extremely small seats"
Pros: "For group check inc check-in personnel were inflexible. Nearly missed flight despite being in airport 2.5 hours before flight."
Cons: "Personnel were not listening to situation and issues that would be affecting passengersdespite taking to supervisor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good which made the 14 hour flight bearable. The flight crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed until the following morning which reduced our trip by a day so we lost money on our hotel for a night. The airline didn't automatically adjust our connecting flight so had to call and make the adjustments. Also, it was really hard to check our flight information online since we went through a third party to book the flights. It's like they don't communicate with each other so neither seemed to be able to release the information to us."
Pros: "The pilot tried to stick to the schedule."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline properly. A lot of turbulence (over 90% of flight time) due to the monsoon season, I guess. The aircraft was somewhat small, Airbus A320-200."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Service was bad, delayed flight, etc."
Pros: "The flight staff was more than accommodating to my husband and myself as we both had become very ill . They did everything they could do to make us comfortable. The airline put us up in a hotel for the evening and got us on a flight the next day."
Cons: "First I would like to say I understand things go wrong that are out of the airlines control but being grounded on a run way for ten hours is absolutely ridiculous . We both became very ill about two hours after eating on the flight to the point of needing medical attention. The delay ended up costing us $179 extra dollars for our car parked and it would be more than reasonable and expected for you reimburse us for this cost. We have a receipt for the proof of this cost . You can reach me by email email@example.com Sincerely Michelle bennett"
Pros: "the service, the crews profesionality"
Cons: "Leck of electronics....no Gps of flyght."
