Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."

Cons: "We were delayed and stayed in the plane for 3 hours and flight was almost cancelled. Could not really understand why there was a delay or why it would have been cancelled."

Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."

Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."

Cons: "Flight 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Amazing crew lounge just great airline"
Pros: "We landed safely. Ultimately, that’s all that matters."
Cons: "Thai seems to be the only major airline without a transit desk in DPS, so connecting passengers have to waste hours going through immigration and customs, checking in again, then going through security and immigration all over again.

Cons: "Same limited entertainment options and despite being a new plane would 3 degrees on the tilt of the seats kill you?"
Cons: "The plane was a very old B777-300 and the air conditioning did not work so the whole flight was very warm. The cabin in general was very dated and cramped. Having flown the A350 to Bangkok which was newer and much better, did not see why they couldn’t operate the flight back on the same platform"
Pros: "return flight on a brand new plane - always helps Excellent movies selection"
Pros: "Crew was very professional. A warm meal was a pleasant surprise on such a short flight."

The head of Boarding crew told before the flight they would ask for a volunteer to exchange seat. They never did A German speaking Thai Disablef persons are not in Bulkhead. I am partially deaf.all the bulk head sits were given to Thai. The food were unpalatable.The worst I had.No tooth brushes no snacks in between. I will never fly this horrible airlines."
Pros: "They had good movie choices"
Cons: "The stewardesses, for the most part were rude, almost because they were lazy. I had one get pissed because I asked for oolong tea when she was offering coffee or hot tea. Well the cabin was so hot during the whole flight, I didn't want anything hot. She made it seem like she had to go out her way to get it for me. It was on her cart!!! They rarely walked around the cabin to make sure they couldn't get something for you or even take your trash. I held an empty cup during almost an entire movie. When I finally got up to toss it, I gave it to a stewardess who was standing right there by the closes curtain who acted like that it was beneath him to do so. They would rush up and down the isle and pretty much shove your meal on you. Ugh they were just rude. None of want to be there either, especially when it's so hot in the cabin and the seats were so narrow!!"
Pros: "The flight was awesome, the food was delicious and the delay was shot"
Cons: "Worn out old 777. The seat cushion could’ve been made of wood!! Not good for a 12 hour flight!!!"
Cons: "Due to the late arrival of the previous Thai Smile flight in BKK we had to literally run the length of the airport to catch our next flight. We were taken at pace by an airport staff member who kept telling us that they were closing the gate so we had to hurry. Fair enough but having raced for a very long distance, minus shoes after the security check, we arrived at the gate to find that boarding had not even begun and did not for at least 10 minutes after we arrived at the gate."

Pros: "I really love Thai Air business class internal flights. Great seat layout like the long haul privacy. Thai Air staff always excellent and even on this 70 min flight they serve a hot Thai meal rather than cop out with sarnies. Also was llucky on the flight down to HKt was on a brand new Dreamliner, I think they were testing. Wow! Multi coloured calming lighting and no window blinds ! 5heh work electinically like polarised glasses! What next! Highly recommend Thai Air for business class."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight from koh samui to bkk cancelled and has to spend 2 hours on phone to arrange another flight. Catamaran gave me the wrong phone number for calling thai airways. Thai airways/vayama had originally booked me on another flight without confirming it would have been ok. Terrible in flight service especially on way back."
Pros: "staffs were helpful and smiling, food was nice and plenty"
Cons: "seat reclination and shape were not so comfortable, PTV was old and not sharp"
Pros: "quick flight"
Pros: "The experience starts in the Brisbane lounge. Thai Airways has the use of the Air New Zealand loung and it has to rate as one of the best. Modern, Open feeling well lot by natural light, comfortable chairs and so many electrical and USB outlets. The food is magnificent. The 787 to BKK has flat beds so it's very easy to get some sleep. Staff were attentive"
Cons: "The food was a little lacking in quality my beef tasted decidedly off! My stomach reacted accordingly 5 hours later."
Pros: "It was drizzling, as is often the case in the monsoon season. There were so many clouds and I didn't expect Himalaya mountains. However, I was surprised to find majestic Mt. Everest! It was a great farewell gift from Nepal! After being impressed with Himalaya, I could enjoy movies during the flight."
Cons: "The seat pocket was broken."
Pros: "Great movie choices and free headphones. Overall a great experience."
Cons: "I had to deduct one star because we were seated in the emergency exit row. As there were no chairs in front of me we had a ton of legroom which was nice, but our screens were on folding arms. The screens in our row had to be folded and put away for landing, while the rest of the passengers got to finish their movies, I had to miss the last 15 minutes of mine."
Pros: "Knowledgeable and attentive staff who all have some experience with English. Great food and entertainment with plenty of options (just remember to select your meal choice online 48hrs+ before departure). To top it off you are supplied with a clean blanket and a pillow to insure your comfort."
Cons: "You just can never seem to get completely comfortable particularly when trying to sleep, but that is the same on most planes."

Cons: "The temperature fluctuations of the aircraft. This is really for all airlines, usually too hot upon boarding & too cold 3hrs in... Also, no coach class amenity kit. I think BR gave us "sleeping" face masks for a similar length trip..."
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill !

Cons: "Different option other than hot sandwiches for mid flight snack"
Pros: "Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse."
Cons: "Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists."
Pros: "Philippine Air staff are amazing. They will do everything possible within their power to make you comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are a little thin and the angle does not give adequate lower back support."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"
Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."
Cons: "Better way to deal with lost luggage, and they need to automatically deliver it to our address instead of tell us that we need to go back to the airport to pick it up ourselves. It’s been a huge hassle."
Pros: "Yes PAL FA are always excellent and the Pilot Captain n Co Pilot really made us all safe."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."
Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and was not overcrowded. Flight crew was polite."
Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"
Pros: "Beautiful plane and crew. On time. Comfortable economy seats. I can’t complain. The food was no worse than any other carrier in economy."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"
Pros: "From the moment I entered the plane, I was greeted by smiling faces, smooth jazz, and a perfectly air conditioned temperature. It was at this moment that I knew I was in for a treat. There was so much leg room, I closed my eyes at one point and felt like I was laying on a beach in Hawaii. The plane had a fantastic movie selection and great cuisine. Even the crying baby in the row over was such a delight!"
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was how much I liked it!"
Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "No options for vegan or vegetarian meals"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."
Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"
Pros: "Boarding was organized. Food was excellent. A couple of complaints from fellow passengers were handled very professionally by crews. Leg room was not an issue for me as I am an average Asian height but for medical purposes - there should be a policy for them to separate sick-looking passengers from older passengers and children."
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: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"
Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first . Crew was exceptional w their service and the washrooms were kept clean even towards the end of the flight. Very important."
Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"
Pros: "The service for my flight was excellent. I really had nothing that bothered me at all that was under the control of the flight crew. This was my first time on Philippines airline, but I would do it again."
Cons: "Delayed flight and suddenly PAL require each one of us to check in our carry baggage."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was efficient and flight departed and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Food is awful, and options are limited. I also think they need to reconsider playing music on the aircraft, it’s quite irritating."
Pros: "Seats and service in business class Crew"
Cons: "Food and choice of after dinner drinks No amenity bag Earphones were not noise canceling"
Pros: "Entertainment, Meal options, Baggage Allowance, Plane."
Cons: "Slow check in, strollers can't be taken to the plane and are not left outside the plane at arrival this is extremely inconvenient for families with small children. The website is useless. You cant check your reservation or select a seat until 24 hours before your flight."
Pros: "Excellent flight despite 90 minute delay at Vancouver. They emailed and called me several hours earlier"
Cons: "Everything. Truly a horrendous experience. Worst airline I've ever flown."
Cons: "Delayed boarding & not organized"
Pros: "flight, service --great"
Cons: "check in --vry problematic."
Cons: "Delayed boarding ( can be expected ) but very little information given about it"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Excellent crews"
Pros: "flight update via email"
Cons: "late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly"
Cons: "paid extra for a seat with leg room ...no tv . this is going to manila on a round trip ticket.coming back was ok."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond and made sure I had a meal that I could eat despite not having ordered ahead. Everyone was friendly and things ran very smoothly."
Pros: "the service and overall quality and comfort of plane"
Pros: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."
