Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."

Cons: "Almost missed the flight, havent noticed the passengers in prior"
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"

Pros: "New movies! Yes!"

Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."

Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
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."

Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."
Pros: "Uneventful but good. Lots of new movies"
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.

Pros: "We arrived late again."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
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. He used profanity in telling his story."

Pros: "Whole experience was very good"
Pros: "I had two flight crew that went out of their way to exceed my expectations on my BKK to HKG flight. One was the onflight manager, Bingo, and the other was the flight attendant, Carol. They are a testament to Cathay Pacific, and they should be acknowledged for their exceptional customer service!"
Cons: "Cobrar 45 euros por kilo extra no es normal"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding is messy. Just one very long queue for everyone in economy. No method for organizing by groups. So if you are unlucky, you might end up with no luggage space in the overhead bins that are supposed to be for passengers at that point. Food was a measly 'roll' with generic water diluted juice."
Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"

Pros: "the aircraft is new and comfortable."
Cons: "the meals are not as good as the past. the meal did not have entree and dessert even the maincourse was not as good as previous flight. i think the CX was curbing the expense on its meals."
Pros: "Snack was served for a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "This airline is going out of business in the US. They have had great fares from LAX to Hong Kong and Bangkok. It seems the airline has been mismanaged or has had political restraints despite always being full. I was lucky to purchase the last roundtrip flight LAX HKG BKK before the online bookings were pulled for the LAX route. Hence, my flight to HKG and the return to LAX were empty flights, which is such a loss for an already dying airline. The crew were still polite and hardworking unlike US airlines."
Cons: "Now you cant fly LAX or SFO to Asia on this airline. Bezos or Gates should buy the airline."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "The female flight attendants were great. For some reason the male flight attendants had a sour face all the time and were unfriendly. Entertainment and comfort were good. Plenty of selections and decent leg room."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized, but I think half of the fault belongs to Hong Kong Airport. The boarding in LAX and Bangkok were good. The food was extremely low quality (fatty, muscle, tendon, skin, bone chips in the "meat"). Bad food, even for plane food."
Pros: "The crew are Good"
Cons: "It could have been better if they improve the meal and crew are smiling. Please do not serve meal with hot Chilli sauce it irritated my stomach"
Pros: "New plane A350. Lots of in-flight entertainment options. I like the external cameras. this flight was cheap and 50% full so i could actually sleep on three seats for this short hop."
Cons: "The pilot could speak slower and more clear."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 5hrs. The same flight the next day was also delayed for 5 hrs. Probably cancelling this flight due to low number of passengers."
Pros: "Crew was great Food was good Seats are nice"
Pros: "I liked the reclining seats and the comfort packs they gave that included ear plugs, eye covers socks blankets pillows."
Cons: "There was plenty of food but the type of food was not typical of the west. And was acceptable but not great. I would have liked masks because there was someone coughing in front of us and I didn’t want to get sick."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Can I get some vegetarian/vegan options?"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely wonderful. Boarding was fast and efficient, the staff were wonderful in keeping us informed on any delays. I was pleasantly surprised at how much leg room I had sitting in economy. I would book Hong Kong Airlines again."
Cons: "The food could be better, but I bought food before boarding so it wasn't that big of a deal and the first plane I was on appeared to be a newer model as the seats were comfortable however the 2 planes between Hong Kong and Bangkok appeared to be older so the seats were not as comfortable."
Cons: "Did not have special meal boarded. Aisles in business class were too narrow for Rolling carry-ons."
Cons: "The ground staff at the airport were not organized when boarding they just threw everbody in a line as compared to LA where we were in groups"
Cons: "The in flight early morning snack was a thrown together cheese and ham something... No butter and very bland"
Pros: "It was fine. The price was good."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that despite using the online checkin and having been issued my electronic boarding pass, it was not accepted by the system at the airport and I still had to queue for over half an hour for a manual check in."
Pros: "Ok time. Great service."
Pros: "They checked our bags all the way through! Even with a 24 hour layover in Hong Kong"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Nice and quiet"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Food was plenty...but no coffee."
Cons: "It was delayed for over an hour!"
Pros: "Crew we're great"

Pros: "Crew was friendly this time around. More vegan snack options would be awesome!"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Why is there check in on line if it doesn’t work? I chose seat 38 and I was given 61 and I always feel sick when I flew at the back. Horrible!!! I even showed my confirmation on my phone and I was said the 38 wasn’t available anymore."
Pros: "The staff was much better this time."

Pros: "Great service and kind flight attendants!"
Cons: "All well"
Pros: "Easy transfer process, and super professional crew. There was plenty of leg space, and lots of TV and games options. I was pleasantly surprised to get decent and substantial food despite it being a short flight leg."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online: it told me to select a seat even though they were all "taken". So I was forced to check in at the airport. I was surprised that the lunch main was spicy, maybe they should indicate that it's spicy."
Pros: "Lots is space. Flying at 4:15am. Not much people."
Cons: "Tried (2) entertainment systems, both had no sound"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "An average experience. The seat is large enough for economy. The flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "I wish slippers were provided as our flight was in the middle of the night. The in-flight entertainment was a local TV program on a shared screen. I wore an eye mask so it didn't bother me too much, but it sucked that I couldn't just turn it off."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Lost my bags again. I have flown with Hong Kong airlines 3 times and they have lost my luggage twice"
Pros: "The crew at the BKK airport were nice and helpful, smiling on their faces. But, your crew at the Honghong airport were NOT very helpful and not friendly, no smiling.... hardly. I do not think I would pass through Hongkong airport again! The Crew on airplane were friendly and food was.... could be better!"
Cons: "Friendly service from ground up won't hurt at Hongkong airport. Smiling and friendly cost you, nothing.... but gain!"
Cons: "Food was just okay, entertainment technology was quite old"
Pros: "The airplane was quite new and very spacy. Both the ground and aircrew was extremely kind, professional, courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Earphone quality was low - consider the additional option of distributing a standard earphones adapter, so anyone can use her own. VGML sandwich was too simple and dry (just few roasted vegetables) - consider something more... Tasty? :)"
Pros: "Great friendly service, decent snack,"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I have flown several millions of miles on Star Alliance and with the top airlines, e.g., Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways as well as Cathay Pacific. Thus, I have my share of travel experiences: from poor to superb. This is my Hong Kong Airlines experience. Courteous and friendly crew. Nice but light snacks on late evening flight. Lunch was delicious and on the lighter side. Also, provided priority card in and out of the airport screening. Overall, excellent experience. Can compete with the top carriers in the world from my experience on a roundtrip travel to and from Hong Kong."
Cons: "HK Airlines refused to allow us to use the outbound until we appealed to a manager. The reason for our no show was the fault of Etihad. They did not notify HK evidently. Get it right people!"
Pros: "Best sandwich on an airplane we have had. Was hot chicken & cheese and delicious."
Pros: "quick, painless boarding friendly, happy flight attendants"
Cons: "no vegetarian meal options"
Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer. Very attentive and friendly."

Cons: "I would be happier if they flew Boeing Airplanes!!!"
Cons: "The food (fish and rice) was tasteless."
Pros: "food and service"

Cons: "Terrible transfer facility in Manila. Poor security staff with bad attitudes. Poor and inadequate waiting areas"
Cons: "Long lines at check-in counter. We waited for almost 2 hours!"
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"
Pros: "Always great service on pal flights"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and fake leather. Staff were surly."
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "A little more leg room."
Pros: "The flight, service, hospitality."
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
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: "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."
Cons: "The food on both flights was pretty disgusting. And I was never given the option to order a diabetic meal."
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: "Efficient airline, on time, easy enough check-in and airport processing"
Cons: "Barebones, no Wi-Fi on plane and no entertainment of any type"
Pros: "I like the hot meals and cold drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment. Very limiting to those who are low in their mobile's batt supply. You should have with you an earphone or headphone. Planes wifi not responding."
Pros: "Flight crew did a great job."
Cons: "Flight check-in was total disaster. Unorganized lines and only for ticket counter agents compared to Emirates 28 ticket agent."
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."
Cons: "My Check-in Baggage was lost"
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 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 service, the crews profesionality"
Cons: "Leck of electronics....no Gps of flyght."
Pros: "The comped us a hotel room in Manila after we missed our connecting flight."
Cons: "6 hour delay for take off."
