Cons: "Really no complaints"
Pros: "Food is better than most other airlines. Seamless check in and boarding"
Cons: "Seating space is quite cramped"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
Pros: "Great meal compared to other local airlines. Comfortable."
Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any help."
Cons: "Crew that joked around and made loud laughters during flight Nonchalant crew serving attitude with reckless, indifferent safety demonstration Tasteless snack Delayed takeoff and prolonged landing AC as cold as in a fridge"
Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"
Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"
Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"
Pros: "Great service. Great in flight entertainment. Served a meal. Had USB charge port. Spacious even though I was in the last row."
Cons: "Wish they offered a vegetarian meal, however the food was great and I still was satisfied with the parts I could eat."
Cons: "Didn't get to go. Thanks for selling me worthless insurance."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and gave a gift to my wife and I when they found out we were traveling for our anniversary! Everyone was so respectful and the food service was awesome. We even flew economy and had a great time!"

Pros: "food was great flight attendants are courteous and reliable"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "There were so many people who walk around an aisle but the flight attendant didn't control them. They kept pushing my seat and hit. I was so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Economy seats were far more generous than AA. Premium Economy was a great value! I will look to travel JAL over AA more in the future."
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"

Cons: "difficulty in figuring out how to use the controls on the entertainment remote"
Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."
Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"

Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."
Pros: "The crew was very well mannered."
Cons: "Trying to find the JAL counter at Hong Kong International Airport. There is no counter for this flight since it is run by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Very polite and fast service, international Languages"
Cons: "Food was a bit boring and bland, but since it was only from Seoul to Tokyo, it was okay. But I was hoping for Japanese food instead of that Egg dish, the entertainment system needs to be updated since the touch screens had a delay of about 10-15 seconds or didn't even function at all."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Took over an hour from the time we landed to have luggage at baggage claim."
Pros: "For a red eye flight we still got fed a lunch box."
Cons: "Movies and music were very poor."
Cons: "Charging outlets Staff could be friendlier"
Pros: "Cramped seats and no beverage service. No crew interaction."
Pros: "From Atlanta to Manila we were served 2 meals. The time gap between the two servings is just too long. For a 14 hour trip the first meal was just after take off and the second about 2-3 hours before landing. The snack was too small of which we were made to choose : a banana, a bread and a brownie."
Cons: "Adding more to the food. And also if crew can check on passengers who lie down in economy as if they are in business class taking space of the other passengers making it uncomfortable."
Pros: "Service w Korean air is always on point. Food boarding and flight has always been fine w me."
Cons: "I felt a little cramped in economy but still not the worst seats and still overall pretty nice flight"

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: "Crew, food, comfort, entertainment and many good things"
Cons: "I love everything"
Pros: "nothing, i regret flying west jet but i had no choice bc it was the only option for my layover."

Cons: "Crew does not pay attention to you"
Pros: "Business class lie flat bed"
Cons: "The Korean food was not that great. The crew was not clearing empty glasses They served food on Korean time rather than on destination time"
Pros: "Staff is so friendly. Amazing legroom in economy, comfy seats. The food was great. They even offered packets with tooth brush and tooth paste. The plane's cleanliness is also stellar. I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."
Pros: "The flight crews are friendly and very active I love the smooth airborne and landing the food was delicious"
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Pros: "The food was good"

Pros: "The meals were really good for plane food, the flight attendants came around often offering water or juice, and really competitive price for tickets."
Pros: "There was enough leg space even though we were couch and the flight attendants were nice. They also fed us regularly and gave out snacks and drinks so this made the 15 hours plane ride more pleasant."
Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been."
Pros: "Service was good... Entertainment and food was on par with what I expected"
Cons: "Delay leaving LAX, had a short connection, no one informed me that connecting flight was delayed also. I rushed to get to the gate to find out flight was delayed. Had to rush for no reason."

Pros: "By far the best airline i have ever travelled on"

Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The food was marginal and they have a very poor selection of movies ( Korean and all other movies)"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good meals, able to enjoy a few good movies"
Cons: "Can't book seat prior to check in"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, and entertainment system; best in all my travels and I travel quite a bit for work and pleasure. Bettween 2 meal services, 2 snacks, drinks, and free entertainment, time went quickly. Everyone gets pillows, blankets, slippers and a toothbrush upon boarding too."
Cons: "10 hr flight in economy from Korea is hard to get comfortable. Seats could be a bit more padded and space is still tight on such a long flight (better than normal and reclined more than avg)) but I guess thats what they want you to pay and upgrade."
Pros: "They listen to your request kindly."
Pros: "Timeliness Appearance of crew. More leg room. Variety of entertainment"
Cons: "It appears the flight attendants catered more for Koreans than others. On several occasions they would ask Korean passengers if they wanted coffee, tea or wine. They looked at me and deliberately ignored me. This happened on Flight from Houston to Manila. From Hong Kong to Seoul and especially from Seoul to Houston. I had to ask thrice for a head phone before I got one. I was wide awake."
Pros: "I liked everything, their friendly and professional service a board!"
Pros: "Beverage service satisfactory."
Cons: "The fact that this JAL Flight was operated by Korean Air meant that not only was the staff different, the the plane itself was an older and smaller model with extremely little room and zero entertainment systems. Both of these developments were severely disappointing given that the 2 hour round trip was 440USD, and flying on a budget airline would have provided basically the same experience for much cheaper. Furthermore the flight was delayed for over an hour taking off at almost 10:00pm instead of 8:40pm. The meal service was quite disappointing as well given the long wait. This delay nearly caused me to miss the last train into the city, in which case I would have needed to take an incredibly expensive Tokyo taxi ride to my accommodation. This was avoided by luck alone, as the airport immigration lines at Haneda airport were uncharacteristically empty. All in all, it was a surprisingly frustrating experience and remarkably stressful. I have known JAL and Korean Air to both be excellent carriers and was quite disappointed to have such a poor flight experience could have been exceeded by an average Peach or Vanilla Air flight."
Pros: "Boarding process was pretty smooth. Food was OK and the on-flight entertainment was good. I liked having the camera on the plane where you could see over where we were flying as well as the frontal camera. Also liked the map views."
Cons: "I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters..."
Pros: "Wonderful international flights - a bit more leg room from SFO to Seoul than Seoul to Hong Kong. Generous meals, snacks and beverages. Best service economy international flight!"
Cons: "I did not like having to rush through the transfer from Hong Kong to Seoul to SFO. customs in Seoul can be slow. wish their baggage limitations carried the same from initial flight to the transfers."
Pros: "Fast Chaco in and nice crew"
Cons: "The food was not great and no vegetarian options"
Cons: "food. antertaiment"
Pros: "I liked the flight entertainment and the food, generally. I found some staff members extremely friendly and others less so."
Pros: "Seat spacing is actually sane - so much better than US airlines"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Cons: "They didn’t have tv music videos like air canada"
Pros: "Crew and seat."
Cons: "Larger seat."

Cons: "The stewardesses could carry more smile when serving, a bit cold."
Pros: "Food and service always reliably good to excellent. If you're used to the North American style of "we are primarily here for your safety" service standard, then Asian airlines like EVA would be a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "Boarding time always seem to slip a few minutes lately."
Pros: "Self-service crackers, drinks."
Cons: "Self-selecting seat system is confusing and needs to be improved."
Pros: "How much are you going to pay me?"

Cons: "Food was cold - maybe can do room temperature but happy they feed you."

Pros: "Service was incredible"

Pros: "Flights with EVA are typically very good. A fine airline."

Cons: "I traveled with EVA in March and October and ate the same snack in both trips."
Pros: "Air craft was new, seats were wider. More comfortable. Flight attendant provided me with a pillow, even when I wasn't in first class."
Cons: "Food was absolutely terrible. Too Taiwanese for my taste, not all of us like asian versions of things. Boarding was late, AS ALWAYS"
Pros: "Eva air is all about comfort, even if you use economy class. Right on schedule, staff is very accomidating, attentive and professional no matter where in the world you are. Flight meals are delicious... I had the best experiencie in flying with Eva air. Highly recommended."

Cons: "The seats are terribly small."
Pros: "- Food - Crew - Entertainment Everything!"

Pros: "EVA airline is the second time I traveled between Toronto and Hong Kong. Its excellence service, which says all, is persistent."
Cons: "Don't understand why they would not give me airmail on my United Mileage Plus last time, and did not give me airmail from Toronto to Taipei this time, The trip from Hong Kong to Toronto is yet awaiting."
Pros: "The Crew was good but I think that they are not allowed to give any drinks, food or water or wine They need to improve their services"
Cons: "Food and drinks were not good at all and not enough"
Pros: "Crew is very professional and helpful. Really love the international movie selection. Food is good."
Cons: "They just seem overworked and perhaps that is why they don't smile as much as I would expect. I wished there is a way to be more environmental with the plastic cups. Perhaps give everybody a re-useable cup in the beginning and we keep it throughout the flight. By the end of the flight, each person wasted at least 8-10 cups. That is a lot of waste."
Pros: "For an economy flight, provided you're seated on an aisle, this is probably one of the more affordable luxury options."

Cons: "It’s nice to lay down, but it’s not completely comfortable. Difficult to get a restful sleep this time."
Cons: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Everything. Great staff, punctual departing yimes, good communications. I have taken many airlines and this is the best if not one of the best. Keep up the great work. Only suggestion I would say is showing what types of foods offered as special meals, menu i mean."
Pros: "Food is fine."
Cons: "washrooms are small and dirty."
Pros: "My flight delayed by 7 hrs. AC ground crews worked diligently to rearrange my connection flight to Halifax on the first flight out. And at the arrival gate in Toronto, AC already had a hotel package for me to stay overnight at Crowne Plaza Horel. Everything went so smoothly and professionally done. I am very impressed"
Cons: "Bulk head seats. People walked over me all night including staff"
Pros: "Cathy Pacific is always in the top 10 airlines of the world for a reason. The staff and service are top of class."
Cons: "The economy seats could recline a little more and be slightly wider for more comfort."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable in both flight , HK airport is clean , washroom are clean ,"
Cons: "The costumer service of pasific airline in HK airport and in Perth airport , were not skilled , I asked them many time if they can help me in my 10 hrs waiting time in HK airport with a food voucher or access to their lounge for rest and fresh in up , they said you bought your ticket this way and you accepted it , no voucher no access to lounge unless if you are business or first class !!"
Pros: "On time Nice crew Good service"
Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . Overall route of the flight was wrong"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good tasting meals, and excellent service!"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty...Given the quick flight change over it was not an issue. That's my only complaint!"
Pros: "Leg room and overall cleanliness was good. Special meal on this sector was very good compared to my previous flight."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude...not directly to me but to many fellow passengers. There was a teenage girl seated next to me and she requested the crew for some water and the hostess told her to wait till they served drinks which she said will take 5 mins. It was after 18 mins that the girl next to me finally got water. Seriously, you can't afford to give a glass of water , it's not like she was asking for coffee or some soft drink, its water ...and when we flew Korean and EVA airlines, they had a small bottle of water available on the seat when we boarded. Then my next row family asked for coffee and after a few minutes the fellow passengers wife decided to have some tea. So the husband called in the hostess and the hostess very rudely said , now you want both coffee and team , next time please let me know at the same time. Then when they served me my special meal, there was no butter in the meal tray, so I patiently waited for them to serve others and when they reached my row, I very nicely asked if I may have some butter...the hostess said, we don't have any butter. I was like...speechless. No butter, no water...and Cathay is a top class airline , HOW is it possible ? And the other crew was ok, this was one crew member a female and her name started from J , don't remember her full name. She was the laziest ever crew member I have ever seen and I am pretty sure she did not like her job. Cathay did not provide any tooth brush or mouth wash. No socks, slippers , eye patch...nothing. While flying to HKG from Toronto, I did not opt for special meal and the meal was just HORRIBLE. It was some beef and I couldn't even cut it with a knife. I think Korean Air is more or less the same as Cathay but in my opinion Korean is much better than Cathay. Cathay is only good for Business/First class. I seriously recommend EVA airlines and if not then Korean but if you are flying economy then stay away from Cathay."
Pros: "All but did not eat"
Pros: "Extra leg room upgrade, was well worth the cost. Bathrooms were kept clean by the staff on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "Could not get bottled water between meals and ,apparently an USA regulation, could not bring bottled water on the plane for an international flight into the u.s."
Pros: "Great crew and nice food. Flight was a little quieter than previous which meant faster service and more space aboard."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a good flight."
Pros: "there an attentive airline. Good service an on time flights"
Cons: "I had a flight from ZHR to HKG and further with another Airline to Shanghai. After 8 hours delay, I was not rebooked to another flight to Shanghai. Reason: We are only responsible to bring you to HKG - not further. Thanks a lot"
Pros: "Got upgraded to business - awesome"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly confusing/chaotic"
Pros: "Everything! Even coach was a great experience"
Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "business class seat was somewhat uncomfortable to sleep on either back or side positions."
Pros: "Overall, crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Food needs improvement! Didn't care for the omelette & chicken sausage."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice but that's the only thing I can say that was good about our flight."
Cons: "There was literally a "crazy man" on our flight. The flight attendants were having a hard time controlling him. He was climbing over seats, yelling at people, etc. My husband is a US Marshall, he finally got up and identified himself with his badge to the flight attendants and asked if they would like him to assist. He helped try and talk the crazy man down. So basically my husband was on guard for the whole flight, we couldn't sleep at all as he was watching and helping with the lunatic on the plane. When we landed, the police escorted the man off the flight and the head attendant said he would be placed on Cathay's "no fly list" I feel that Cathay should reimburse us for part of the flight due to the severity of the situation and the fact that my husband assisted the staff when he didn't have too! Again, not a way to spend your honeymoon flight having your husband have to work and not be able to relax and enjoy our time together."
Pros: "Checkin at Kowloon"
Cons: "Aircraft change"
Pros: "Seats not so comfortable Crew very loud & rude. Made a fuss about serving us ice creams, when it was being served to all other passengers. Said not included in special meal and was served to us as an extra as a favour. (Not a big deal, but the attitude was not appealing)."
Pros: "In Business clash the seats are larege and flexible. The crew is very accomodating."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is limited in choices. The second meal is served at an odd time and no breakfast (eggs and breakfast meat) offered"
Cons: "No good ! Flight attendant has no smile and no patient."
Cons: "I felt the crew was little rude to the passengers who did not speak english."
Cons: "This plane was a little old, and therefore the entertainment system was a little dated. Other than that, great flight!"
Cons: "Lost luggage in HK"
Pros: "This was like usuaL; excellent flight attendants, who really are kind and try to do their best to satisfy your needs. You never get "attitude" from them. Also, as this was an A330, it had decent legroom (they now fly 777's on long distance flights, which really awful legroom). Also, they did quite a good job of boarding us in HongKong."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight."
Cons: "I don't eat sausage or pork. I would have liked my scrambled egg breakfast to not include it. I mentioned that to the server but it was still served with sausage. I didn't want special hindu meal because it comes earlier than other meals and also I wanted to try all options. Generally, the food options seemed limited."
Pros: "Just needed to set the automatic volume lower on the PA. When someone is using headphones or earphones, it automatically is turned to LOUD. Making you have to rip your earplugs from your ear."
Cons: "I felt like a food beggar asking for a cup of noddle and never getting it. Also, flight did not arrived on time which made me missed my connecting flight and delaying my connection flight twice.I had to wait almost 7 hours."
Pros: "Everything was A CLASS"
Pros: "For some reason the service was slow. There seemed to be less staff than previous flights. The food was average too."
Cons: "There are two things that I was not impressed by. First, there was a delay but the information was ineffectively communicated. Second, I was given a sweet and sour chicken pie that had no chicken in it, and a caffeinated beverage (oolong tea) in 11 pm local time. I am going to focus on the first issue in the remaining text: This flight was delayed for about 45 minutes. A small, written sign about the delay was placed on the gate counter for some time without an audio announcement. I heard about the delay from other passengers who walked by talking about the delay. I sat really close to the gate, so I'm sure I did not miss any announcement. Then I walked up to gate to verify whether there was indeed a delay. That is when I saw a tiny sign about it. By the time I finished emailing my family about the delay, I finally heard this delay being announced, but I did not know how long the information had been already available. Why not communicate this (unfortunate, unpleasant) information ASAP to passengers so that they could inform their family and friends at the destination? This flight was scheduled to arrive by 12:30 am, and it ended up arriving by 1:30 am."
Pros: "Attentive and engaging flight team. Uncrowded flight."
Cons: "Older 777 on the end of its service before major overhaul. Plane needed some TLC. Short transfer time. So had to jog to flight."
Pros: "I liked Cathay's notifications to my cell phone and email re the flight status. I liked the pot noodles that are served as a snack. Baggage came out very fast at the destination. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "The food options are not cognizant of the fact that there are people who do not eat pork or pork products. After boarding, departure was delayed by one hour. The Hong Kong - Toronto flight is a very long flight as it is and to add an extra hour to this is quite tedious."
Pros: "The entertainment console was a good time killer for the long flight."
Cons: "My biggest concern was the staff. I found them to be rude and they didn't try to make my experience better when I complained. The person in front of me kept their seat reclined and it squashed my legs for the majority of the flight making my 12+ hour flight very uncomfortable. I complained early in the flight to the crew, but they brushed me off and told me it was that passengers right to do so. With 5 hours left in the flight, the person sitting beside me complained about the same thing and the crew member apologized and immediately had the person in front of her pull her chair up. The only reason I could think of was that my neighbour complained in mandarin and I only spoke English. Made me feel really aweful. Other things that were out of cathays control included too many screaming babies, and a very rude and inconsiderate couple who sat in front of me."
Pros: "Efficiency, and in flight entertainment quality"
Cons: "nothing much"
Pros: "The self check-in service was a breeze if it was open just a day earlier that would have been the best. The in flight comfort and service was as expected and without complaint. Even with a full flight going there was enough space I'm the overheads to store the carry-on which is really nice."
Cons: "The on board food was not that good. For such a long flight the food should be a little higher quality with better selection."
Pros: "Amazing crew , both ground and in fligbt"
Pros: "The flight boarded and left on time. A good variety of movies and tv shows to entertain all ages."
Cons: "The bathrooms needed to be restocked with towels and toilet paper."

Cons: "Seat adjust buttons difficult to use"
Pros: "crew is very cooperative and professionals"
Cons: "no other comment"
Pros: "The food was great and so was the entertainment."
Cons: "The service was overall very good, but the attendants would come drop off the food and then not come back to pick up the trash for an hour or so at times. Other than this, I would recommend"
Pros: "comfortable, clean washroom, superb food"
Cons: "Too many process checking. Right before boarding we were all asked to stand and go outside for another checking. Blue ladies should be on the table right before passengers come for another check. there is a store but coffee and bottled water are not allowed to bring on the chair..why?"
Pros: "The crew and food was amazing."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable for sitting on such a long flight. This prevented me from getting any sleep on the plane."
Pros: "New A350 plane with excellent business class and great service, food and the entire James Bond movie collection on the entertainment system..."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late after the captain said we would have an on-time departure. Terminal 1 at MNL is just aweful!"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Boarding, crowded, mob science no room and unorganized"
Pros: "Almost 4 hours. Reason 'traffic." Lame"
Pros: "No delays. Reached destination an hour early. Food was very good."
Cons: "My main issue is with the payment confusion between vayama and philippine airlines (unknown outstanding balance came out after managing my booking) which caused major hassle because both parties couldn't help me even after several calls/emails. Actually, another vayama-Philippine airlines passenger reached out to me after she experienced the same situation. Baggage allowance very strict. Would prefer more asian entertainment content."
Pros: "Most everything was very good expierence. Entertainment selection is excellent. Crew was friendly and full of energy. Plane was pristinely clean."
Cons: "I see a comment about letting people board when it wasn't their turn. This did happen a little and it is shameful more of the people that think they can get away with it. Eventually, the ground crew did start yelling and organizing people, which helped correct the situation. I do think that all people should be kicked back to the end of the line for not following the procedure. Food was only okay (Fish in shrimp sauce)."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Veeery narrow cheap lined seats."
Pros: "Flight was on time; crew was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. No priority boarding for business class passengers. Same thing happened on disembarkation in Manila. Crew didnt control the traffic flow going out from a single exit door."
Pros: "Though we are 50 mins late in departure we were given announcement early"
Cons: "The food we had ( fish and rice) for the flight was enough in quntity but lack a good taste."
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"

Cons: "Always delay never been on time"
