Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now.

Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. This was is our first experience with EVA Air. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad. The food was great! Both my wife and I like the dinner and the breakfast served. Also, the price of EVA Air’s Premium Economy is great compared to similar Asian Airlines from Vancouver to Manila. EVA Air was the cheapest when we started shopping for flights from Vancouver-Taipei-Manila."
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Was asked if I could check in my carryon because flight was full. I refused because I had something fragile in the bag. after boarding several overhead bins were empty."
Pros: "Good good movies"
Cons: "I was stuck in a window seat with 2 handi capped women in the middle am Nd aisle seats. I felt trapped. I could not use toilet because these women had so many bags that it was all but impossible to get out of my seat. In an emergency i would have died. Bottom line. I would have died."
Pros: "Everything Hello Kitty."
Cons: "Ugly uniform."
Cons: "The 6 hours layover."
Pros: "Everything was good as always."
Cons: "Circled over Manila for 30 minutes but that is more of an airport issue not an Eva airline problem."
Pros: "appreciate staff moving things along quickly so that passengers can get settled and enjoy short trip while resting."
Cons: "The 2.5 hour flight was delayed by 2.5 hours due to F.O.D. on the tarmac. Plane had to be towered back to the terminal for refueling. Ground crew in Manila was not helpful in assisting passengers with connecting flights."
Pros: "Food was ok and crews were great. It was a two hour flight and I didn't notice we we're about to land. Hahaha"
Cons: "Well, the long hour flights have a better movie selection. Hopefully, that will also be the same with short hour flights."

Pros: "I like the service."
Cons: "The Taiwanese food wasn't really that great. I hope they can change the menu."
Pros: "Everything. They fed us and it was just a short flight."
Pros: "Fast actions by tha FAs"
Cons: "Very small in the plane"
Pros: "the noodle snack and food was good"
Cons: "more leg room would be nice on a long flight"
Cons: "Delayed too much except that, everything was good"
Pros: "When do you need help they always happy Helping"
Cons: "The best"
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "The breakfast vegetarian food didn’t have any taste! Serve some real food!"
Cons: "The check in counter service is terrible. Very unprofessional with terrible attitude. Can not pronounce the gate number clearly. After I clear up with him, he started gossiping with his colleague as it was my fault for not comprehending his English. How did Cathay Pacific become this way?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Food even for short flights"
Pros: "The crew was so polite and kind!"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "seats that i selected was change when we enter the boarding gate without informing us"

Cons: "snack was too little"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Air hostess did not offer hot drinks"
Cons: "The crew service very lack"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled new departure time is 7:20am"
Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."
Pros: "Comfortable Economy class on A330. Adequate seating and a good breakfast pastry for a short duration flight."
Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."
Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "That they continuously made mistakes and wasted my time and money. Let alone no sleep and carrying everything to 3 different terminals not completing my trip on any of them. Now I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone in a hotel in Hong Kong instead of meeting my gfs family and sleeping with her the first time in Manila."
Pros: "We arrived late again."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it""
Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding was slow. We had to wait for connecting passsangers. Delay ruined the experience. We didn’t leave in a timely manner. Flight crew was nice. There was a male crew member from LAX to Hong Kong, I could heard talking to the other crew members and he was using profanity. Nothing aggressive but not professional in my opinion. He used profanity in telling his story."
Pros: "Good food, service, and inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Not boarding by zone, made it disorganized and hectic."
Pros: "Timely and professional."
Cons: "I would like a different food selection...."
Pros: "Improve quality of the food."

Pros: "comfort and service is always great on cathay pacific"
Cons: "bathroom were dirty"
Pros: "Even though the line to board seemed massive and very long the crew boarded everyone very quickly and timely I anticipated a very long wait and in reality it wasn’t"
Cons: "Nothing stood out negatively"
Cons: "Luggage was damage and I didnt notice it till I arrived at connecting airport terminal in manila. Didnt have time to file a claim as I have to rush for my local connecting flight. Hopefully Cathay Pacific can take a late damage claim without a report for my luggage"
Pros: "Quick boarding and very polite crew"
Cons: "The only issue was 30 minutes waiting in HK to take off and 30 mins circling Manila waiting to land....... both of which were neither an issue with CP."
Pros: "Thank you for your services."
Pros: "Great service attitude. Friendly with smile. Love their service"
Cons: "A short flight with just snacks. Seems downgraded the international flight standard."
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "We were all supoosed to sit together (there were 3 of us) but my sister got separated at the last minute and put on a center seat elsewhere with no explanation."
Cons: "Simply excellent service"
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Short gap between flight and long walk going to the next flight gate. Passing the security alone take time plus u have to walk then ride a train after that long walk again going to the gate."
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "Seats too cram feels like sardines in a can"
Cons: "Cobrar 45 euros por kilo extra no es normal"
Pros: "The seat in the economy is very comfortable. The cabin is very clean."
Pros: "The A350 aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was not long enough...."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding is messy. Just one very long queue for everyone in economy. No method for organizing by groups. So if you are unlucky, you might end up with no luggage space in the overhead bins that are supposed to be for passengers at that point. Food was a measly 'roll' with generic water diluted juice."
Pros: "Only complaint was the disembarking routine. They emptied all of business and first before coach could even begin to leave the coach cabin. I am all in favor of giving business and first preference in getting off the plane, but this was just too much, waiting for the slowest person in business to get off before a single person could leave the coach cabin."
Pros: "Easy check in, and a pleasant flight! Thank You!!!"
Cons: "Bad food and bad FA"
Pros: "A Great Crew"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "The whole Experience was Amazing. From Comfortable Seat, Great Flight Crew, Tastey Food"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and allowed me to change my seat to be near the door as I had a connecting flight fairly soon after arriving in Manila. This flight was very comfortable and excellent."
Cons: "There was no movie but that is Ok. I just read"
Pros: "Planecdmlty. Had the tow to myself! Food and crew excellent ."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Even for a short flight there was a nice meal! Fantastic!"
Pros: "The food they served was very good."
Pros: "good it was not a long flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit negligent. They passed me when serving the food just because the aisle seat passenger next to me was served his special meal earlier, so they did not notice that the passenger at the window seat (which was me) had no tray in front of him when running the regular meal service. Isn't this sloppy !? Problem is that once they passed you, it's hard to get their attention, as they are always in a hurry, and not looking over the cabin just to check if someone needs something or wants to call on them for any reason, and there are no attendant calling buttons available. So you have to wait until they come by your seat again. Finally I got my meal with apologies 15 minutes later, but the experience was already ruined and the negative impression built.. Also, when departing from Taipei, the boarding process was a bit disorganized, compared with the one we had in Vancouver. As for as the entertainment, the LCD monitor at my seat was pretty worn out, with very poor contrast, making it difficult to watch a movie or read information. Same airline with two opposing experiences: Vancouver-to-Taipei very good, Taipei-to-Manila: poor."
Cons: "Staff treatment, food, cabin pressure was off"
Pros: "cheap ticket will put you in seats that are in the very end of the plane where you will feel most of the turbulence."
Cons: "you will be the first to go inside and come out last. food is not impressive at sll!"
Pros: "Nothing!. My brother and I got to the Airport 45 mins before the Check In Counter Closed but we didn't make it Thedue to the fact that we had a flat tire unexpectedly so my flight was cancelled and rescheduled to January 10, 2018 and paid extra $480.00 including penalty. If the Check in Counter did not close early, I could still be able to check in on time while there was still 45 mins remaining."
Cons: "The Check in Counter closed early while there was still 45 minutes remaining."
Pros: "Flight was fully booked and we had a tight connection, but everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."

Pros: "Flight left on time landed on time. Boarding was as smooth as could be expected. All in all a very good flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, decent seat size, decent leg space, lots of movie and TV options"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on a330, food is lackluster, overhead bins in a330 can be a little hard to reach. Maybe not an issue on newer planes? Tight aisles. Leg space could be a little bit better. Non adjustable headrest (height wise)"
Pros: "The meatballs were fairly tasty."
Cons: "The seats didn't have much space between them."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines his chair, there is no room to move around at all. It would be helpful to announce that passengers should recline their seats only during sleep time."
Pros: "All staff were really attentive and delivered an excellent service quickly and efficiently."
Pros: "Plane and entertainment. The "family couch"."
Cons: "The flight attendants. With the exception of a couple they were very impersonal, and cold. Rushing through services, basically throwing food at you. They would get you what you needed, but always seemed to be a hassle. If it wasn't for the nice new plane and couch option I wouldn't consider flying them again. I was expextinf much better service from an Asian carrier."
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: "Boarding was disorganized"
Pros: "- Onboard entertainment - Meals were reflective of Taiwanese meals - the minced pork rice was yummy! - Crew was attentive and came by often to address any needs"
Cons: "- Little leg room in Economy class - Air conditioning could not be adjusted (but helped with ventilation)"
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS SMOOTH AND QUICK"
Cons: "ONLY WATER TO DRINK WITH THE FOOD NO ORANGEJUICE APPLE JUICE OR COKE OR 7 UP"
Pros: "Lots of food and good entertainment selections, friendly"
Cons: "DelaysDid not appreciate the Delayson the flights.........."
Pros: "No issues, no delays, food and services on par."
Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."
Pros: "Very accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was impressive. Very efficient with exceptional customer service and appearance."
Cons: "Food was awful. Flight was 1hr late"
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."
Pros: "Affordable efficient"
Cons: "Food just so so"
Cons: "Flights were delayed taking off from LAX and Taipei."
Pros: "Staff and crew were nice and courteous to passengers."
Cons: "Digital Screen are too small. Video quality is not good."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "The food was not as good as other China airlines flights we have done, but was still above average."
Pros: "Flight boarded in reasonable time, crew was professional, courteous."
Pros: "Just want to give a shout out to China Airlines for our flight from LAX to Tapei - they were so great about making a card for my daughter's 12th birthday, along with a dessert. It really made the 14 hour flight so much easier and enjoyable. The crew was so great on both flights - thanks so much! :)"
Cons: "It was much appreciated! I do wish being able to chose flights easier and having a number to contact them was available"
Pros: "Very disappointing because we didn't get our luggage up to now"
Pros: "Entertainment like new movies are great to watch"
Cons: "Crew must be aware that some passengers only speak & understand English."
Pros: "everything was good including leg room"
Pros: "Entertainment - good choices of movies and newer LCDs."
Cons: "Compared to Delta where they proactively offer unli cocktails and drinks to business class and comfort, I've never had one offer in my return trip. Had a technical malfunction twice which caused me to miss my 7am connecting flight by 2 mins. The next plane didn't even bother to wear for 2 mins even if they caused the delay. They gave a 250NT lunch voucher and asked to what til the next flight in the afternoon. That was the longest flight I experienced coming from New York."
Cons: "missing baggage"
Cons: "Chose western style dish, not very good."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "Space was good. Seats were just right space from one another"
Cons: "We were assigned seats apart from my companion"
Pros: "747. Older aircraft, not much to make the passenger smile here. Flight was short!"
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Not done by zones. Everything is willy-nilly at boarding in Taiwan. First to board were families with small children (even before first class). Fine, except: There were several families with small children lined up at first. The gate agent was about to board them, then she stopped and went out into the gate's seating area and started grabbing families with teenagers (only) to board with the families with small children. Seriously, she went and got several families that had teens (no kids in the fam under age 10) only, and lined them up behind the fams with smaller kids. What an interesting look on the faces of the first-class passengers waiting in a separate line to board. After boarding the new category of "All Families", first class boarded. Then the masses. Once again, zones were not utilized by gate agents, and we all boarded at the same time, ignoring the zones (front/middle/rear). Once in my seat I could not find a charging outlet, nor a USB outlet. And wifi? I asked the F/A. Her response: "We don't have. Sorry. Its 1 hour 50 minute flight. You are OK." Really! No, sweet woman, YOU will be OK, working. I will have to waste 2 hours not getting something productive done. Entertainment unit on seatback: Waste of time. Even if it worked, the sound requires the old twin-male plugin jack on the armrest. Nobody has one of those in his pocket, and the F/A's never passed any out. I can hear it now, had I asked for one: "1 hour and 50 minute flight. You are OK.""
Pros: "Like the family couch , able to lie down."
Cons: "Flight Delayed."
Pros: "Same. Movies, staff, food."
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "Attentive staff, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, very cramped seating"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No entertainment was provided."
Cons: "The online check in for Hong Kong Airlines is very poor. I was unable to check in online and had to go to the airport counter. Not Kayak's fault."
Pros: "The crew were good. The seats are Okey"
Pros: "Very good service in every possible aspect with limited food choice"
Pros: "the seat was okay just a bit old (given with that price, it's acceptable), however the aircraft changed last minute for both legs, i almost need to sit separately with my companion."
Cons: "the crews are polite but not as attentive. Pilot Gary Emmanuel (Philippino) on HX692 - Aug 13 was a shock, being extremely rude in knocking my bathroom door fiercely for 20secs, i opened the door and asked why, he answered with his head up high "yes, i just knocked" and rolled his eyes..what?"
Pros: "Staff is friendly. Food is ok"
Cons: "Explain the real reason why the flight is 6 hours delayed. They said “ operational issues.” If we never asked for further instructions, we would never get $ 9 meal vouchers. In other words, some of passengers didn’t get it"
Pros: "The food was not bad."
Cons: "Passenger, largely Chinese people, don’t have common sense of not walking around while food is serving, or not standing until the plane stops etc. Instead of being too nice to those bad-mannered passengers, the crew should have made announcements to deter their action."
Cons: "Will never fly Hong Kong airlines again. Lost all luggage. 2nd day at Intercontinential hotel without clothes!!!!! This is unacceptable. What compensation for this horrible inconvenience? Please call me at +1-541-980-6101 and let me know. This was my daughter's birthday present, Hong Kong destroyed"
Cons: "It’s better If no delay 30 minutes."

Cons: "Again, we got very good service for what we paid."
Cons: "IMAGINE the flight back from TPE-Hong Kong-CNX. “I thought” I book with Hong Kong Airlines BUT the second part was Hong Kong Express; a cheaper subsidiary by someone ? They blanking sell EVERYTHING; seats, food, drinks & likely to go to the bathroom. The flight IS suppose to take off at 16:45 ("
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 5hrs. The same flight the next day was also delayed for 5 hrs. Probably cancelling this flight due to low number of passengers."

Cons: "4.5 hr delay in Hong Kong"
Cons: "The ground staff at the airport were not organized when boarding they just threw everbody in a line as compared to LA where we were in groups"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "Really friendly crew, quick boarding, and safe flight."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment for our aircraft (Airbus A330) was only via airline-provided iPads. If you were sleeping and missed them, you had to go find one of the crew members to get one. Food was eh - nothing to write home about, but it was fine for a long plane ride."
Pros: "They gave us a meal. Hkg to tpe"
Pros: "Nice and quiet"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Asked for extra bread , didn't give but other than that it was nice"
Pros: "Very helpful cabin cabin crew and attitude"
Cons: "cabin was old, dirty and beat up. Old A330 cabin. the fleet has not refurbished all A330 at this stage."
Cons: "They destroyed one if our luggage.the plane was very loud"
Pros: "The flight was cheaper by a couple hundred dollars."
Cons: "It felt cheap. The plane won't fall out of the sky, but it was lackluster."
Cons: "Crew should have informed pssengers if they want water you, feel free to go tonthe rear, not in a rude manner"
Cons: "I was placed in the emergency exit row (not the seat I originally booked) where the seats don’t recline. The entertainment facilities were lacking; every two rows shared a small tv in the middle and my seat didn’t even have a headphone jack."
Pros: "Food was plenty...but no coffee."
Cons: "It was delayed for over an hour!"

Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac and the delaying of our exit. I do not think that it had anything to do with the crew! More on the airports side!"
Pros: "They got me to my destination. I had an aisle seat which was nice. There is a screen in each seat with a mediocre film selection."
Cons: "Boarding took an hour - they boarded first class and economy at the same time. Woke me up an hour and a half before we landed."
Pros: "Fast loading to plane and out, very friendly staff"
Cons: "My flight one way was delayed 3 hours and they broke my suitcase. They had us waiting at the check in desk while a huge line formed and made no effort to start up computers and start faster once they arrived. When I explained about the airline destroying my suitcase, they said I could not prove they broke and it and refused to offer any assistance."
Cons: "Very hot in the cabin."
Pros: "Good service . Did there best to please."
Cons: "Attitude ... aircraft is good , food no comment cos thrrrs only a pathetic sandwich lookalike being served .. I guess the worst is the attitude ur being treated because we pay for a cheap ticket and we have to receive that sort of attitude inline with the price of ticket (only referring to ground staff of Hong Kong airline in Hong Kong airport )... an unforgettable annoying disrespectful experience"
Cons: "Unexpectedly had to check bag because of weight; no charge though so not a big deal. Confusing self-check-in kiosks at airport in Taiwan, but also not a big problem."
Cons: "It was freezing inside the cab; you cab see the fog condensing from the humid air."
