Flying business cannot quench your thirst. Not even a glass(in this case a paper cup) of water is onboard. I wonder if the COVID virus can survive in the longer legs.

Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
Pros: "Food, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "Excellent service and food!"

Cons: "Middle seat stinks for a 15 hour flight"

Cons: "Everything great but delayed waiting on another flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good movie selection, USB port."
Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Good leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work, so I was moved to another seat."
Cons: "The temperature was incredibly hot. Despite being a 5 hour red-eye that took off at 2300, they kept the lights on for an hour at the start of the flight. Then they turn them on again an hour later to do meal service. They made it impossible to sleep."
Cons: "Only real complaint I have and I don't even know if it's a valid complaint but seats were small and the remote to control the in flight entertainment was broken."
Pros: "More legroom Excellent service Good good"
Cons: "Entertainment is dated - not much options and both videos and songs are not the latest. This can definitely be improved with more options"

Pros: "The food was delicious. Stewardesses awesome."
Cons: "Ths length of the flight, but that is normal."
Pros: "Korean Air hosted us on four separate flights to SE Asia, a trip from which we have just returned. Of all of the airlines that we have used over the decades, Korean Air rates at the very top. We have no complaints, only a sense of what a first-class operation it was for us."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and even though it was a quick flight they still provided a light meal. They were very efficient getting people on and off the plane."
Pros: "I'm just about 6ft and really do appreciate the plentiful legroom on business class."
Cons: "Since long flights with reduced body movement tend to create constipation, would be good to increase vegetables, reduce other stuff."
Pros: "The crew are friendly, the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Service and leg room!"
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."
Pros: "Great service overall . Crew was very nice."

Pros: "I liked that i had two seats to myself"
Cons: "No VR goggles"
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: "The crew was very attentive and so pleasant."
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: "perfect service"
Pros: "I requested a special meal which was accommodated and quite tasty. The flight attendants were very nice and always brought water and juice around the aisles. The warm towel was a pleasant surprise."

Pros: "The customer service was fabulous. There were a lot more amenities than I expected. Lots of variety of new movies to watch during the flight."
Cons: "since it is the overnight flight, everyone was so tired but still serve food....... for the poeple who was sleeping, the smell was unpleasant."

Pros: "I like the space between seats. A couple inches helps"
Cons: "Staff just not as friendly as last time on This airline. Audio earphones just doesn’t work welll. It’s double prong so you can’t use your own and there ear buds very uncomfortable and earphones from previous flight didn’t work well either. This really needs fixing. 12 hours this should be a big priority."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Pros: "The service was friendly"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and service was great on all China airlines."
Cons: "On this particular plane it was very uncomfortable. It was extremely noisy (the plane not people) and the exhaust was so strong it made me feel so sick, nauseous and from what I can tell others felt the same. This was the only plane that was like this of the four planes I took on this trip. The rest were excellent overall. Thank you."
Cons: "ran out of food options, was not given a choice and served meat I could not eat."

Pros: "It was very organized ."
Cons: "Nothing ."

Pros: "Your system Kayak in general"
Cons: "You do not know what has happend to the bookings of your customers. With some routes, I completed my trips, then, you still run marketing email on those. For cancellation, even you still hold my original amount of money once placing booking, then, you charged again the second time for cancellation fees"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new looking. Customer service from all employees was terrific."
Cons: "On both China Airlines flights, the wifi system did not allow my phone to access the link to purchase access. The food options were just OK."
Pros: "My seat was spacious while my wife's seat was up in the front and cramped."
Cons: "I don't understand what was going through the China Airlines check in agents mind when he never asked us where we wanted to sit and decided on his own to seat us 10 rows apart from each other? Very very disappointed."

Cons: "The food was bad and the staff was not serving the beverage until my food was almost at the end"
Pros: "My very first time flying china airlines and loved everything about it... food, service, comfort, etc."
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."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour to allow delayed passengers to arrive but kept us on the plane the whole time which was very inconvenient"
Pros: "Customer Care details and safety placed first. Restrooms always cleaned. Attentive staff."
Cons: "Getting seat assignment late. No choices. Ended up window seat on emergency exit row. Three bulky men together shoulder to shoulder. CAL needs to seat us with more space"
Cons: "Horrible seating, entertainment needs to be updated. Customer service at counter not so good."
Cons: "Warm wash cloth must not be eliminated especially for long flights. I was not able to charge my phone since the outlet was non-functional. The flight experience wasn't that bad with the budget price of the ticket. Over-all it was okay."

Cons: "I had a pleasant ride. So I enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "Terrible food and movie selection"
Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "The crews were unorganized and rude. The food has no taste."
Pros: "Had a nice flight back from Taipei to JFK on China Airlines in premium economy. Compared to economy, I was quite happy with the comfortable far-reclining seats and more than enough leg room. My one complaint is food. I'm a vegetarian and the veg options were awful...simply not acceptable. And giving passengers the full can of soda/beverage would be nice. Most adults drink more than a shot glass worth of soda or juice. Or at least fill the cup a bit more."
Cons: "Check in online process and meal selrction"
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness if the aircraft. Pillows and blankets plentiful. Did not overbook the flight. On time"
Cons: "Food awful"
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Pros: "Flight onboard: Nice interior on 777, food was mediocre, but overall pleasant experience. Flight before takeoff: due to 3 hour delay flying out of Pudong, they passed out water and sandwiches. Then we waited almost another hour before we could taxi to the runway. I blame this on Pudong airport. One of the worst airports for delays."
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."
Cons: "It catered to our unique (Muslim) food and satisfied our needs. They paid special attention to my physical needs that required a wheelchair. The cabin crew were especially helpful. Thank you!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Good service"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly organized."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
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: "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!"
Cons: "Adding cookies and drinks to relieve hunger or low blood sugar of passengers."
Pros: "Food & drinks"
Cons: "more sauce in food selection."
Cons: "Let’s passenger choice the seats with time"
Cons: "Delay in arrival caused us to miss this connection"

Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."

Cons: "Price is a bit higher compare to other airlines"
Pros: "Crew was nice plane was comfortable"
Cons: "I have flown to Philippines many times with other airlines i hate to say it but PAL food is terrible The flight is long already but there was almost 2 hour delay and once i arrived in Canada it took about an hour to retrieve luggage Because i couldnt charge my phone due to no functional USB at my seat i was afraid i wouldnt be able to contact hotel shuttle"
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"
Pros: "What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!"
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS, AIRPORT ATTENDANTS WERE VERY SUPPORTIVE & PROACTIVE TO OUR NEEDS."
Cons: "OCCASIONAL LAPSES IN FOOD QUALITY (LIKE THE BREAKFAST STEAK THAT TASTED LIKE CARDBOARD). THE IFE RADIO WAS HARD TO TURN ON."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and comfy blankets."
