NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"

Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "In particular we give kudos to Tadaka, who seemed to be a manager and went above and beyond to help us with our boarding and seat assignments. She even recognized us the next day! Superior customer service."

Pros: "Nice flight, right on time."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
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: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."

I used to every time get excited to fly with Thai. this time i had two Thai connections between Tokyo - Bankgkok and Bangkok-Delhi, both times my two young minor children were automatically seated away from me and each other also during checkin process. it took a lot of time and convincing the agent to get my own children seated with me on long international flights!

Cons: "If there could have been some sort of service at DTW to take customers to the gate of their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said.

It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"

Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Cons: "First leg the server “ran” the aisle and I missed drinks/snacks twice. Seats are rediculously in lack of leg space hip to knee area—I’m a 5’10” female."
Pros: "Delta - best airline"
Cons: "Airbus - entertainment systems never work."
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"

Cons: "The seats were very close together which made for an uncomfortable experience due my knee injury and upcoming surgery."
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus. Movie."
Pros: "The food and enterntaibment are always nice. The captain was super friendly and opportune with his communications. Seating was as fast as possible and boarding was swift."

Pros: "Great friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller, expensive food"
Pros: "The flights were on time and they did two drink and snack services. Great crew!"
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "On time departure, actually got to Cabo early."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "N A"
Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."
Pros: "Once we boarded the plane, we still had to wait for the pilots to arrive and then for them to run through their pre-flight checking before we could get underway."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the departure gate moved at the Atlanta airport 3 times to 3 different concourses before we were finally able to depart around 1 hour later than scheduled."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Cons: "rescheduling Putting my wife on a different flight seating us in middle seats"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"
Cons: "Plane too warm."
Cons: "I always hate to hear erroneous announcements. I don't need to know why I need to keep my seatbelt on; just to do it and MAYBE how long I'll need to do it. You don't need to alert me when you're turning the seat belt sign off. There's a "ding" and the light goes off. You could wake me up, or my wife or my sleeping child. It's like they like to hear themselves talk."
Pros: "Newer plane with movies."
Cons: "Airlines pack you on so tight."
Pros: "Avg flight"
Cons: "They changed my seat to a worse one without any explanation. I picked my seats on line for a reason and dont like them changed. Older MD series plane from AUS to ATL."
Pros: "The time it takes from Atlanta to VPS is not long trip at all. The crew was courteous and glad to take off and land safely. Thanks to the Delta crew."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."

Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"

Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk.

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"

Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Cons: "Luggage lost and not found. Contact to executing airline KLM very difficult, because the case-nr. on the "lost-luggage-form" was unreadable. but without this number, you can do nothing, because it almost impossible to get someone on the phone at KLM. Mostly you talk to computers. Obviously the phone is oldfashioned and you need twitter and facebook. Poor service, KLM So you can have a pleasant flight, but if you need service, you are lost."
Pros: "Nonstop route, and entertainment."
Pros: "It landed safely."
Cons: "It was an hour late leaving Hawaii THAT'S NOT GOOD! And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The flght is on time nice plane"
Pros: "Crew staff were nice and friendly"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Transit at Manila was terrible. Terrible crowded airport with poor signage. Very confusing."
Cons: "Better signage at the airport for those that already checked in online. I waited in the long line since the signs were obscure."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Cons: "Don't delay the flight"
Pros: "It was good value, and landed a little early."
Cons: "No power plug or USB charging port."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties. 9 pm delayed then new flight next day around 10/11am"
Cons: "flight canceled"
Pros: "The in flight service is great with Philippine Air as you are given a meal for the four hour flight."
Cons: "The terminal for Philippine Air in Manila is probably one of the worst transit terminals I have been to...it is over crowded and in need of an expansion. There are also no places to eat a quality meal if you have descent layover. The food at all the kisoks were not well cooked and the sanitation is easily a D. Also, there is an expected delay of 30 min to an hour with every flight. So don't have any connecting flights with tight transit times."
Pros: "Great staff, pleasant cabin temperature and seats, lovely staff, and super quick boarding/unboarding."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "All of my PA flights were late for this trip and boarding was scattered like they didn't know what they were doing. This one was 45 mins late and we nearly missed our connection. Will not fly with them again"
Cons: "stopover twice from manila, so it is a 3-stop flight. terrible food. lousy airport, super high charge on changing dates. terrible experience with this philippines airlines."
Cons: "Check in at Kuala was a chaos. The agents were at a lost not knowing how to handle the family in front of me. It took them more than 30 minutes to handle just one family. I think there must be something wrong with the booking system. It took me 45 minutes to complete my check in."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines makes it hard to upgrade seats. No on board entertainment."
Cons: "poor food no entertainment terminal 2"
Pros: "For a short trip of almost two hours going to and from Taipei, I did not expect to receive such accomodating treatment from PAL. Crews are efficient and helpful."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "My husband had a very good experienced with his flight. Food was great and the flight was fast."
Cons: "The logistics at Manila airport are horrible. I spent more time working around the terminal changes and flight delays than I actually did in the air. I will avoid Manila and PAL in the future"
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."
Pros: "Business class comfortable with friendly staff"
Cons: "Food was not good. Had to wait for 20 wheelchairs to go ahead of me when boarding. Not all those people were disabled but they ask you if you need a wheelchair and people just say yes so they can board first. It's a blatant abuse of the system."
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "4 flights on Philippines Airlines, all 4 flights 3 plus hours late. There was not even a pretense of trying to be on time. Worst flying experience of my life, and I have been everywhere. PAL is their Acronym and the running joke is it stands for "Plane Always Late""
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."
Cons: "I don't like the iPad entertainment. I prefer seat mounted screens. The chairs are too cramped as well. Boarding was a bit slow and the waiting area was so cramped."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and they said they couldn't get another flight. We then had to re-buy tickets on another airline. They never said a thing about a refund"
Cons: "Flight is always late Seats are very small no screen at your seat meals are so-so"
Pros: "Liked the staff, friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Ran out of food options at the back of the plane."
Cons: "Loud and weight restrictions were not goodl"
Pros: "Service A+"
Pros: "Took off and landed on time. Ticket counter to aircraft crew were professional and kept me conformable."
Cons: "Well... I did ask for a window seat and got stuck in the middle seat. I am little so leg room was fine, but anyone the size of my hubby... the leg room would make him grouchy."
Pros: "Extremely helpful crew, friendly and with a genuine warm smile. Good food. What I like the most is, it is a direct flight from the US mainland to the Philippines."
Cons: "A bit worn out economy seats. No tears, but looks old."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was great"
Pros: "the friendlyness of the staff."
Cons: "everything else, an extremely old plane that was falling apart. the entertainment center above my head was shaking to the point i thought was going to detach. The over head light did NOT work. The headphones output did NOT work. the food was disgusting the only thing fammable was the dinner roll which had MOLD. Green MOLD all over it. It was horrific experience. I would never fly with them again. I took video to show the condition of my seat and the mold in the bread."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, and then sat on plan 1-1.5 hours before taking off."
Pros: "Oh PAL...how could you have gone so low. Flight delayed by at least an hour, waiting time painful. Worst before and during. I am so embarrassed to share my experience with friends. Food bland. Unappetizing. Bread chewy, fruit a little bit on the overripe side.I chose Bicol express. Disappointed.Just mostly grizzly meat that got stuck between my teeth. Plane smelled of urine as we got in. Table was hanging, unscrewed. Entertainment, dismal! Tv near seat was not working, watched a distant tvcwith intermittent sound."
Cons: "Not full, able to stretch."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay. Plus waiting another 45 min sitting in the plane until take-off. When we arrived at our destination, we again waited another 30 min or so in the plane until we were allowed to get out of the plane."
Pros: "This was a good flight for the price, I didn't pay a lot and got more than I paid for. Service was OK. Not great, bot terrible, maybe the word I am looking for is "offhand"."
Pros: "everyting was comfortable. the stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "we had no real complaints we would fly again using philippine airlines"
Cons: "Both their International Flights and domestic flights are very poor. My flight from Honolulu to Manila was delayed also my domestic flight to Coron, Palawan. My wife"s Philippine Airline flight from Honolulu to Manila on Jan. 21 (Flight PR 101) was cancelled without prior notice. I was only notified by my online booking company- Airfare.com 2 days before scheduled flight and scrambled to find another flight for her. This has been an on going proceedure by Philippine Airlines if they dont have enought passengers for their scheduled flights. It has also happened to many of our friends in Honolulu, Hawaii. If you dont want to ruin your business do not cater for this airline anymore."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "Pal In Air didn't have the two apps available for my iphone. The appstore only had one of the two. I was lucky that my husband had an andriod. The wifi signal was off in long periods and we had to ask the f.a. if the wifi/entertainment was working and she said they havent turned it on yet. Then it seems like they switched it off in the middle of the trip and turned it back on again. I'm not talking about the announcement times. Im okay with it [the wifi/entertainment] being switched off over announcement periods. Cheers! Valerie"
Pros: "The Filipinos are amazing. Kind, sweet, accommodating."
Cons: "The lack of a vegetarian meal (even though I requested it) and a 2 hour delay with no explanations or vouchers."
