Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."

Pros: "Happy crew."

Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."

Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"
Pros: "Plane was not sold out, I was able to have the roll with my girlfriend. All flights should be like this."

OTHER AIRLINES WOULD CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT FOR A FEE BUT ANA DID NOT!!!!!!!!!
Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible.

Cons: "Entertainment - didn't have to many movies I liked. Food was ok."

Cons: "Boarding is a bit chaotic. Only people at the front of the queue can see the correct places to stand, so many people were trying to push in the front of the queue because the signs weren't visible from some angles or from far away. Basically couldn't see the inflight safety videos from my seat (17K) because of the curvature of the overhead bins and positions of the few screens (no seat-back monitors)."

Pros: "Entertainment is always highlight"
Cons: "Crew services- trying to put my backpack up the space on the rack. But the crew says it is better to put my backpack under the chair. He explain it is more convenient to me.

Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"
Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"
Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."
Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."
Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"
Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"

Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew throughout flight, good plane configuration, even economy comfortable. Really impressed!"
Cons: "Maybe more veg selections on main menu and more/better beer."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and was not able to catch up my cebu flight. I was accommodated in a flight about 5 hrs after my original mla ceb flight and was not allowed access to PAL lounge as I was told I only have an economy flight. Very frustrated considering I flew as a PWD."

Cons: "more sauce on the meat."

Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Never on time. Almst missed connection. Planned on 4 hours. Downn to the wire. Nevermore."
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Pros: "Very nice purser and her crew. Accomodating. Love the safety video!"
Cons: "Different option other than hot sandwiches for mid flight snack"
Pros: "Philippine Air staff are amazing. They will do everything possible within their power to make you comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are a little thin and the angle does not give adequate lower back support."
Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."
Cons: "Better way to deal with lost luggage, and they need to automatically deliver it to our address instead of tell us that we need to go back to the airport to pick it up ourselves. It’s been a huge hassle."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."
Pros: "The service of Philippine Airlines have greatly improved. I have flown over 20 international airlines like Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Etihad Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa Airways, JAL, ANA, EVA Air, Korean Air, ASIANA Air , LAN Chile, Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airlines to name a few. And these airlines gave good service. The service of Philippine Airlines is good. They just need to add movies in all the regional flights ."
Cons: "The airlines need to add videos and movies. Without it, the airlines is like flying in the JURASSIC era!"
Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and was not overcrowded. Flight crew was polite."
Pros: "Flight started out by being delayed. I thought we would be delayed at least one hour plus. Did a great job delay time was only 30 min. Then everything was seamless. Great job of getting us to our destination on time."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and small. My knees were in the seat in front of me the entire thing. I was in a middle seat and was elbowed by the guests on either side of me. Luckily, they were nice. The flight attendants were really unorganized during meal service. Some people had no drink until after their meal. The food was average. They played Infinity Wars, which was cool, but you had to watch as people get in get up and move around."
Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"
Pros: "Beautiful plane and crew. On time. Comfortable economy seats. I can’t complain. The food was no worse than any other carrier in economy."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"
Pros: "From the moment I entered the plane, I was greeted by smiling faces, smooth jazz, and a perfectly air conditioned temperature. It was at this moment that I knew I was in for a treat. There was so much leg room, I closed my eyes at one point and felt like I was laying on a beach in Hawaii. The plane had a fantastic movie selection and great cuisine. Even the crying baby in the row over was such a delight!"
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was how much I liked it!"
Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "No options for vegan or vegetarian meals"
Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."
Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"
Pros: "Boarding was organized. Food was excellent. A couple of complaints from fellow passengers were handled very professionally by crews. Leg room was not an issue for me as I am an average Asian height but for medical purposes - there should be a policy for them to separate sick-looking passengers from older passengers and children."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."
Pros: "On Time. Courteous crew, great service"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, good food, decent wines, inexpensive tickets"
Pros: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"
Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first .

Pros: "Crew were good early on but didn’t check later on"

Cons: "We went to Gatwick(75.00 Uber) to reschedule in person and we were told there were no refunds and if we wanted to change it would be 250 pounds. It is my wife’s and my 35 year anniversary and this wants a mood dampener"

Cons: "Short comfortable and smooth journey"
Pros: "Nice plane, good food"
Cons: "One flight attendant was exceedingly rude during the boarding process, but thankfully she was not in our area."

If you asked for a second travel size bag of Pretzel, I had to wait until they completed the distribution for all travellers. Give me some. Real. Have we gotten that"
Cons: "I Couldn’t pre book a bag with BA prior to arriving at the airport. Faced an extra charge because of this. I tried to call. Apparently because I booked through a third party. So I went to the aorbitz website and tried to book an extra bag but just redirected me to BA! Disgraceful. So many other problems such as 2 hour flight delay then another 2 hours for the bags to come out."

Pros: "The food was excellent. The service was one of the better ones."

Pros: "We made it safely. The Pilot was excellent in making sure the plane was safe and keeping us informed."
Cons: "We were a little late."

Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seats. Minimal legroom. Food and beverage for purchase. Luggage charged for. Group boarding. All on a so called premium airline, for a premium price. If I want Ryanair, I’ll fly Ryanair."
Pros: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."

Pros: "It’s was very good thanks"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and friendly crew members."
Cons: "I booked via Lastminute.com and I was unable to check in online due to a system error. I called BA who said this is a fairly common issue with booking with some travel providers for BA flights. As a result I was only able to check in at the airport (which was 19 hours after I planned to check in online) and hence got a mediocre seat. This issue should be resolved, especially between such an established airline and such an established travel website. The entertainment is poor. The music available only caters for certain tastes (either it is ultra modern or classical) and the selection is markedly inferior to that of other airlines. The film selection is very limited."

Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Pros: "Blanket and quiet to sleep"
Cons: "my screen didn't work"
Cons: "Could not get seat assigned until I was at the gate. Same thing occurred on the way to Edinburg. Not sure what the issue is but it happened both ways and was a problem."
