Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too! Super nice check in agent as well."
Pros: "Once I made it through the long line at check in everything went very well. Check in was a bit of a nightmare since Air Busan is shared with Asiana Airlines."
Cons: "I had to stand in line at both Asiana and Air Busan to check in. Made checking in a lot longer than normal."

Pros: "The food was delicious and interesting. Also, the flight crew allowed me to sleep through the rest of the night after dinner service was complete."
Cons: "I don't recall having seen an option for a vegetarian dinner, either when I was booking my ticket or after I was on the plane. Perhaps I just missed that part of the booking process."
Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "turbulence was awful."
Pros: "I always find the service on Japan Airline to be excellent. What I really liked, and didn't expect, was that there was individual inflight entertainment systems. Most other carriers on short flights out of Busan don't have that available, so it was a nice option. The meals were excellent!"
Pros: "JAL in general."
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."

Pros: "Korean Air service was good."
Cons: "When I left Atlanta for Incheon, I thought it was Korean Air, but I got on Delta Air Lines. I was a little embarrassed then."

Pros: "Everything was good, excellent. No complaint at all!"

Pros: "Boarding for Any KA flight is excellent. They actually tell the crowders to sit down, which makes it easier to figure out if you're supposed to be in line or not."
Cons: "This flight was a Delta flight, with Delta crew on a Delta plane. Delta is great for domestic, but this crew was definitely not a Korean Air crew. The result is a lower quality of service, with more than half of the flight attendants not being nearly as cordial as they should have been."

Cons: "Loved it"

Cons: "The seats."
Pros: "The flight attendant uniforms"

Pros: "As good as Economy gets. Blanket & pillow, slippers and toothbrush; clean bathrooms; decent legroom. Would fly them any time."
Pros: "Amazing service, very polite and professional. The food was very good and the facilities were clean/thoughtful, and the seats fairly spacious and comfortable. Tv screens worked well with good sound. Will fly again!"
Cons: "Justfly has the worst customer service. There is no way to complain either. There is no executive office. They are not on any rating sites. They just don't care, because they are not held accountable for their actions."

Cons: "No complain. The crew did great service."
Pros: "Ground staff at JFK did a great job changing my seat assignment - that was really appreciated."

Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "The crew are friendly, the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "The attention to detail and excellent service was better than I had expected. I was especially impressed by the stickers the cabin attendants used to notify sleeping passengers upon waking up that the meal/drinks were still available upon request."
Cons: "I didn't realize that my flight was not actually Korean Air. It was Korean Air "Powered by American Airlines". So it was actually not really Korean Air. I was a bit disappointed by that."
Pros: "The air hostess is very kind and helpful when she noticed that I was not well and she has offered me a honey lemon drink even I didn't request."
Pros: "Plane was on time and it was a large and full flight that got off the ground on time"
Cons: "Difficult to get hand luggage on board as people had so many carry on items and there was no boarding by seat number"
Pros: "KA broke handle in my luggage and it was difficult to make them pay back some reasonable amount of money for that (my suitcase was just one year old) but at the end they did a lot. Love their metal cutlery instead of plastic ones. It's not only better to eat with them but also better for environment."
Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."
Cons: "China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane"

Pros: "the food, the snacks, the special amenities for pregnant passenger, the transit airport"

They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Cons: "Transfer in Busan is a disaster"
Pros: "the crew was very accomodating,the food was nice,but everything is great"
Cons: "well what to say its not comfortable sitting 16 hours and last time from korea to manila my baggage was delayed so i have to wait for 24 hours to recieved it."
Cons: "Changing schedules 4 times! And changing flights on the day of departure.. totally different airlines from asiana to eva.. very last minute notification"
Pros: "Service staff was great, excellent service"
Cons: "Planes are a bit dat d"
Pros: "On our flights to Palau and our return flight to Incheon, I had entire rows to myself, which was sweet!! I was able to stretch out a bit and get come good sleep."
Cons: "Airlines have done a disservice to travelers by adding rows and packing passengers in like sardines. Thus making travel an uncomfortable nightmare for economy seats. Take out a few rows and add a premium economy section - that would be awesome! Plus the plane we flew on was old - still had ash trays. The attendants, while courteous were not very friendly and cocktails poured were not very good. And, the charger in my seat did not work - bummer. while I appreciate very much uneventful and safe flights to and from our destination, I will more than likely not fly Asiana again. I don't like giving poor reviews, but you can't know to fix something if you don't know it is broken."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Pros: "Arriving on time even though it took off 45 min late"
Cons: "They lost all of our luggages(five pieces) and never attempted to locate them at LAX. Which were transferred from United airlines. It took eight contacts and finally reaching out to LAX office in 36 hours later, they located the luggages in 45 minutes. asiana from Inchon office kept on telling me that it is in LA office’s hand and yet they weren’t willing to call for LA office’s assistance. They were simply relying on the process which has been broken. Then upon the delivery, the driver informed us the severe damage in my tumi bag."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Old style seating arrangement Many young kids in business?"
Pros: "The crew were efficient, nice and friendly. There was a sick passenger and I think they were able to help them out. Even though there was a slight delay in the take off but we managed to stay on time."
Cons: "The bathroom was slightly flooded, one bathroom the water wasn't running so I couldn't wash my hands. There are not enough amenities in the bathroom. The food could use a little improvement. Waiting for the baggage claim took too long."
Pros: "the safety and flight over all is great."
Cons: "the entertanement not much option. and the food for the last meal no taste and not enough pasta sauce no salt."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Of all the flights that I’ve taken in Asia this one has been the most comfortable. I had tons of leg room and I like how the seats reclined."
Cons: "I don’t like how you can purchase an additional bag online you can only do it at the counter. And the prices for an extra bag is a little pricy."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from check in to boarding. Flight was on time. Flight Attendants were very friendly and one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of flying with. Leg room was adequate."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for comfort on long flights. Used airline pillow to provide additional cushioning."
Pros: "Kind and professional service."
Cons: "Food I like to have was run out so I had to eat whatever available."
Cons: "film selection not good enough and not new enough"
Pros: "I liked everything about the airlines, the flight attendants are so respectful and kind. They go out of their way to help the packager get comfortable and settle in there seat before and after take off. I have been a member with Asian Airlines for 6 years and won't change airlines for nothing even if I have to pay a little extra for great service."
Cons: "I have no complaints with this Asian Airlines."
Pros: "I enjoyed the USB charger available at my seat."

Pros: "I truly appreciate, especially on a long flight, the extra leg room in between the seats. All the flight attendants were super nice & the food was awesome!"
Cons: "My only "annoyance" was the touch screen tv was a little difficult to use. Due to the over use of the tv, I had to touch the screen several times to complete the function I was asking it to do. So overall an excellent flight!"
Pros: "Good leg room, clean aircraft, short flight. I'm 6'2" and had good leg room. All you can ask for on a fairly short flight."
Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin. We were told that it was airline policy to keep the cabin that temperature. There is no way to adjust the temperature yourself. Also the chicken entrees should be avoided. If given the option chose the Korean meal."
Pros: "We liked the efficiency with which everything went. It was smooth from check in to arriving at destination."
Cons: "On the plane the stewardess were always behind the curtain in the prep centers. They were always polite and efficient when asked for anything but did not seem accessible in the way other airlines do it. Everything was still very good overall. Thank you,"
Cons: "nothing special. delayed."
Cons: "This was tough Journey. We though we got window seat, but it was not. We wanted to switch our seats because there were some seats who were opened all thru the flight. With all the respect, I asked crew member if we can change the seats, she said no. I said we are willing to pay more, she said no. NO ONE was sitting on those seats from Seoul to Delhi. Second, lay over from 2 1/2 hrs. became 5 1/2 hr. After all the wait, we did not even get the change the seats. I did not expect this form Asiana. This was very disappointing."

Cons: "Not a thing."
Cons: "2 and half hours delay made me crazy and caused a lot of damages for the time and parking fee for my entire family, who were waiting for me at the airport!"
Pros: "The food was decent for airline food, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence. Not sure if this was due to being at the back of the plane or if the weather was bad, but it was constant and very jarring. For a 12 hour flight this makes things extremely uncomfortable. Also the plane was a little older and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. The in flight entertainment system was also hard to use, unresponsive touch screen and strange little remote. Additionally we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for flight documentation. This not only caused us to miss our bus once we arrived at our final destination, but also added another hour to an already very long flight. The captain was not very forthcoming with information about the delay. Overall the experience was unpleasant and I don't look forward to having to repeat it."
Cons: "Entertainment console was broken."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. I checked in two bags and did not get charged."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and it was very hot inside the airplane. I woke up a few times because it was very hot and had to drink water to cool down. Also, the day before my flight I had a medical emergency and had to be sent to the hospital. I missed my flight and Asiana does not cover medical emergencies...other airlines do! Way to go! Had to pay extra to get another flight."
Pros: "The service and food were good."

Pros: "A bit delayed but still arrived almost on schedule"

Cons: "Luggage didn't make the connection."
Pros: "THE staff were really nice and kind."
Cons: "Not enough snack small amount of wine usually you get 1 small bottle. NOT enough movies choice. No control on the air over your head."
Cons: "The entertainment console was very outdated. You couldn't select a movie as it played on a reel--so you had to wait until it was over to watch it. ALso, the screen would go blank or black and would be fuzzy not due to turbulence but just plain bad equipment. The stewardess couldn't help as it was something they could obviously not correct. This made the 12 hour flight not fun."
Pros: "The diabetic meals"
Cons: "Headphones and more snacks."
Pros: "Mechanics of aircraft. Boarding."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Not enough staff for such a large plane. Food was not good and took a long time to get our first meal. Could not understand English announcements because she was not very fluent. Probably would not fly China air again."

Cons: "Food and quality of entertainment screen for economy."
Pros: "Very enjoyable and comfortable flight"
Cons: "The food from Canada was very Canadian, but on the way back way more traditional chinese"
Cons: "Sorry, I’m always picky about the thinness of the seat cushions, the meals, and the IFE. But I still rate China Airlines as the best affordable Chinese Airlines I’ve flown. And it’s super convenient that China Airlines flies out of Ontario CA now. ONT vs LAX. It’s a no brainer. ONT every time."
Pros: "Service & price"

Pros: "Lots of selections on entertainment during flight, good movies and music."

Cons: "The food is a little too authentic for my taste but the presentation is excellent."
Pros: "Better couch legroom than any of the US carries I have flown overseas. Newer plane and attentive flight crew. There was a decent movie and entertainment selection and the meals were reasonably good. Crew was very attentive to keeping the bathrooms clean, which on a long flight is a very nice. Checking staff in Los Angeles to insuring the comfort of a taller customer was excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays, but they where at the gate to insure I made my connection."
Pros: "China Airlines does an excellent job at doing their best to accommodate passengers that do not speak the native language. During my whole experience with China Airlines, I really felt I was a valued customer."
Cons: "The only problem with the flight was out of China Airlines control. A shuttle bus to terminal had issues and we had to wait onboard for another bus. The crew still did a great job keeping us informed of the situation."
Cons: "When two people are travelling together and adjoining seats were needed, it was impossible to make the seat changes online. Only one seat was able to be moved. We finally had to wait to ask crew members at check-in. It was an anxious time."

Pros: "Lay over too long"
Pros: "I've been taking CI to Taiwan since I was a little kid. My flight to Seoul via Taipei was a bit uncomfortable bc the flight was fully packed and even though I had an aisle seat, the person sitting in the middle was hogging up all my space . Once I landed in Taipei and went on next flight to my destination at Seoul, that flight was much more comfortable and less people. On my return direct flight from Taipei to JFK seats were comfy and service is always attentive. I enjoy taking china airlines and can always rely on their service and clean planes"
Cons: "The new interior decoration seems outdated and gives a weird vibe."
Pros: "They were so helpful and kind at the check in counter. They allowed us to change our flight so we could arrive in Hong Kong early. We really appreciate that."
Pros: "on time and cordial staffs"
Cons: "seats are small , no refreshment at the back room like water drinks snacks to be self serving"
Pros: "Crew worked diligently."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online. Was within the 24 hours check in time."
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "No information, lack of communication"
Cons: "No entertainment for kids, no toes, TVs were not functioning and several times I asked the crew that kids bored and want to play or have something to watch but nobody cared. My children didn't liked the food at all, as there was no fish or egg or veg meals, only pork at breakfast. I had two young kids with me, but were treated as regular passengers and we lined up for long time for boarding and kids got very tired. At washrooms there was no soap, tissue or towel papers."
Pros: "The food was excellent, service equals any other airline I've flown on and better than most. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment selection was outstanding."
Cons: "I can't think of a thing that wasn't to my liking."
Pros: "food and crew members were great."
Pros: "Service was nice"
Cons: "Late Old 747 Very very poor food"
Cons: "I had surgery on my leg a few days before my flight and it was doctors order to have my leg elevated on the flight home. I spoke to the airline at the desk before boarding and told them my condition and that i needed a seat to lay down and prop my leg up and they assured me i was going to have that. Once i boarded they gave me a seat with not enough leg room and i couldn't elevate my leg. I tried to tell they flight attendants over and over about my condition and they moved me to another seat that didn't even make a difference. My leg got extremely swollen on the plane ride and i had to go to urgent care as soon as i landed at LAX. i will never fly China Airlines again, i want a refund!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Good service"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly organized."
Pros: "Very accomodating. From the check-in ccounter to the plane, such a nice coordination. Almost everybody are concern about your safety."
Cons: "I'm concern about helping elderly, I noticed one of the male staff helping an elderly woman, asking if he can help her to put her bag at the overhead cabin, it seems that his not a very willing help."
Pros: "Like the family couch , able to lie down."
Cons: "Flight Delayed."
Pros: "The customer service and the food."
Pros: "Boarding process very efficient Slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seat slightly narrower, slightly more uncomfortable Nice soft blankets Cabin too warm"
Pros: "The crew of this leg was very nice and spoke good English. Although, the boarding was delayed by about 30 minutes and the flight arrival was delayed the same, it wasn't a big deal since it was pretty comfortable throughout. China Airlines in-flight entertainment is great; lots of good options and new movies with a really good quality screen (better than most I've seen)."
Cons: "The food this time around was not that great. The flight attendant mentioned "pork noodle" or "curry pork". I chose the pork noodle, but would have chosen differently if I had known it was actually fried noodles (炒麵) instead of boiled noodles. Also, the hot buns were delayed so I didn't get it until I was finished everything. Thankfully I was too exhausted from my trip to care, and it tasted good nevertheless."
Pros: "Food and movies."
Cons: "Seat not comfy enough for long distance flight."
Pros: "first time on china airlines and would use them again. the plane was near new, leg room and staff was nice. good job!!!"
Pros: "Decent food & friendly staff. good selection of movies."
Pros: "Crew was good!"
Cons: "Manila airport business lounge full, not accessible, croweded with too many airlines; Processing at the Manila airport too complicated for passengers in transit (completely different when we traveled from Vancouver through Manila, why is that? Boarding gate (Manila) terrible, crowded, no available seats, “business” section small and with so dirty sests that it was not possible to use them!"
Pros: "The crew did above and beyond what was expected. They were nice, friendly, and professional."
Cons: "The line up at the check in counter was a bit of a mess and it took longer to check in. I was extremely upset at not being able to check in online and select a seat, I was therefore assigned a seat towards the end of the plane which I am not very happy with but it was rectified during boarding."
Cons: "Adding cookies and drinks to relieve hunger or low blood sugar of passengers."
Pros: "Food & drinks"
Cons: "more sauce in food selection."
Pros: "i didnt like when we had to come out of plane and do a transit."
Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."
Pros: "The most unorganized airline"
Cons: "Better staff and communication."
Pros: "Theno del crew were polite and cheerful, efficient in their work. Seats are okay, more legroom would be better."
Cons: "no delays on schedules."
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
Pros: "free wifi."
Pros: "Great service and so much leg room"
Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "I was seated in row 38 and our flight attendant was very attentive, helpful and always smiling. I think she was the the best flight attendant that I had for a long time, she’s always ready to help to needy passengers and always has a smile on her face."
Pros: "The best flight crew and customer service was provided."
Cons: "my seat was broken and would not lock in a either upright or reclined position"
Cons: "The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "REad above"
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Pros: "The direct flight, without stop overs was nice. The crew was well mannered and attentive. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My seat as well as the passenger beside mine would not stay reclined. Neither of them would lock in place. Passenger's USB didn't work neither. Despite handing everyone a menu, there was no choice of meal for breakfast because they ran out of the Filipino food. There was inedible sausage."
Pros: "Food was warmed to my liking. Crew were professional - but a bit too rigid. I was seated with a guy that was coughing all the entire 16 hours flight and I requested to be seated somewhere else but attendant simply said they can't do anything. I asked if they can ask someone a bit younger and fit to change seat with me but crew never got back to me. In fairness, they said they'll try."
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: "food when it finally arrived"
Cons: "waiting in plane 4 hours with no updates on status"
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: "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."
Cons: "seats is too tight/noarow"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "organized departure / arrival aircraft cleanliness pleasant staff great food & entertainment / free alcohol great leg room"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "huge delay"
Pros: "What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment equipment on board is outdated"
Pros: "YOU NEED TO ADVISE PASSENGERS TO BRING WARM CLOTHING BECAUSE THE PLANE WAS VERY COLD DURING FLIGHT. I NEEDED TWO BLANKETS"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow."
Cons: "No myPal"
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Cons: "First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "our flight was pretty delayed due to another delayed flight from the night before, in which they decided to combine half the passengers in to our flight. They also did not communicate this effectively and check in was horrible."
Pros: "Philippine airlines was a great airline to travel with, with friendly staff good food comfortable seats and lots of entertainment options for the flight there and back will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Good flight with excellent Serb=vice form the crew"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment US for one whole sections of the aircraft. The aircraft looked tired the table fittingwas broken ,"
Pros: "We got 2 food vouchers one at night, the other early in the morning. However the food establishment was so pricy a chocolate bar was $7 USD."
Cons: "13 hour delay, would not let us go home, would not cancel the flight, instead pushed the boarding time back one hour every hour starting at 4am. Flight was supposed to leave JFK by 11:55pm, we left at 1pm the following day. It wasn't solely due to the weather (we expected a slight delay), but in the morning, plenty of other flights were running regularly, while there were no updates. No one that cared, all the staff just told us it wasn't their fault. (Which is true to an extent), but all so mentioned that they were tired too, and they're exhausted too, which made many people angrier. They deflected a lot of statements."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Cons: "There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English."
Pros: "Great service and wifi on board!!!!"
Cons: "Didn't get my bags onto the connecting flight"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the service give by PAL. Good meals, good utensils, and blanket and pillow provided to each passenger as well as current tv shows and movies on the entertainment system for free."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the plane seemed dated and didn't work so that was a bummer. The attendants offered to move me to a another spot, but couldn't due to it being a full flight. Also the plane was two hours delayed leaving."
Pros: "Smiling crew members"
Pros: "the flight is an hour in advance!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, though I wish they were given more information on boarding time due to the late arrival of the plane. The flight was half empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "The food was abysmal. I chose the beef option — a small lump of "beef" that was overcooked and under sauced, accompanied by a sad pied of steamed broccoli and a disproportionately large portion of white rice. The quinoa salad was passable, but the "peach cobbler" dessert course was a flavorless mass of gelatinous goo."
Pros: "1st time to fly, the flight was good experience, the preflight delay was not good."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 2 hours before takeoff"
Cons: "The food was disgusting The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours however there was no information given the ought the delay"
