Pros: "We were in business class, and everything was just awesome, considering there were only 4 passengers in the cabin. So it was quiet and private."
Cons: "It’s BYOE. Zero entertainment amenities. (They do offer you IPAD). No slippers or eye shades.... its a four flight to Guam."
Pros: "Great aircraft"
Pros: "excellent check in, they accommodated me despite my late arrival due to traffic from an airport transfer from another terminal"
Pros: "The crew was good and professional. Friendly."
Pros: "This time I didn’t have to go into the corral till close to boarding I still can’t believe you cannot bring bottles of water from vendors to bring on the plane if it was allowed I wouldn’t have to keep calling the crew to bring water.. after second request the crew knew I wanted water... flight late"
Cons: "Allow bottled water on the plane ... or at least sealed bottled water!!"
Pros: "The plane and crew were excellent."
Cons: "The food was very bad, not taste. Departure was over one hour late."
Pros: "The lay flat bed was amazing and I like the privacy of the seats; this Philippines Airline business class is enjoyable!!"
Cons: "Don’t ask the stewardess for recommendations on what dishes to eat for meals; their taste is quite different from yours!! My stewardess recommended a pork dish that she said was tasty, but I found it dry and chewy!! But that’s Filipino taste!!"
Pros: "Crew was very caring and service was excellent."
Cons: "The security agents at the boarding gate was rude and juvenile. I’m not happy to have to walk on my socks to get my shoes after a hand search. I don’t mind the search; I do mind the lack of assistance in retrieving my hand carry and shoes."
Pros: "Knowing that we might have a tight connection (prior to the plan being delayed another hour and missing our flight) the check in desk moved our seats to the front to give us optimal time to make our tight connection."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours which caused us to miss our connection. Once arriving in Manila we were given the next flight to make it to our destination. While I appreciated this, the first location was not able to do anything for us and left us with some uncertainty."
Pros: "They are all polite!"
Cons: "Need to improve food selection."
Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."
Pros: "Horrible airline."
Cons: "tiny seats for tiny people, crappy food, cold in the jet, Really a low class airline."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Ran out of chicken for the paid meal. Fish was terrible."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Late, late, PAL is always late. First we were late by two hours; then boarding was delayed by one hour after that; then we sat on the tarmac for two more hours. Literally my dad had almost finished watching his first plane movie before we were able to takeoff. Fortunately our flight wasn't cancelled, but we missed not one but TWO connecting flights because it was so late. Also, MNL is a terrible airport. What is the logic in needing to pass through THREE sets of metal detectors and x-ray machines before boarding?"
Cons: "Slow checking and too much time to wait"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous!"
Cons: "My bag is lost- still lost - third day in Bangkok!"
Pros: "Great crew, good food"
Cons: "No entertainment either flight or snacks to purchase."
Pros: "Wasnt bothered as compared to previous flights."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding and taking off and NO explanation from any airline personnel."
Pros: "The flights themselves were good and the crew members were attentive to requests."
Cons: "The worst part was my departure flight was delayed a full 24 hours due to the airline combining two flights to ensure max capacity on board. No concessions were given and unfortunately I lost out on a whole day of my vacation, so beware if you book on Phillipine Airlines, you may not receive the flight dates which were originally booked."
Pros: "Flight took off early landed early"
Cons: "The seats obviously and the nead trolley dolly was quite rude she spoke about me to another passenger like i wasnt tgere"
Pros: "Luckily we were not on the plane when they announced the 45 minute delay"
Cons: "Lately I have been hearing the flight delays, but dang everyday??? Flight was delayed and announcement wasn’t made until the departure time."
Pros: "Add veggie food as an option for vegetarians people"
Cons: "To cold and no veggie food"
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "Did not get the seat I requested. Food took a long time to be served and food was cold as well."
Pros: "Great service Super friendly crew"
Pros: "Help because the delay caused us to miss our next flight"
Cons: "Delay, crew didn’t prioritize us getting off the plane when they knew our situation of missing our flight. We didnt get food choice because they ran out when they got to us."
Cons: "Passengers waited extra 20 mins on the tarmac prior to parking and extra 30 mins for the baggage claim"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment movies"
Cons: "Sitting too close to other passenger"
Pros: "Both the flights were high quality and easy."
Cons: "The 13 hour layover in Manila was terrible. Philippine airlines has one room with very few good places to sleep. That night of sleep was really uncomfortable and staying in one room for so long drove us crazy."
Pros: "Overall a very nice flight. Crew was helpful when asked to assist and provide additional beverages."
Cons: "Food was pretty awful. Needed more beverage service throughout the flight, just water would have been fine. Shouldn't have to constantly ask for water, the crew should pick up on the need and respond to it."
Pros: "‘‘Twas great experience , FAs are always with good smiles while serving . Thanks."
Pros: "the plane landed with out feeling it"
Cons: "great flight."
Cons: "By the time the food got to us (and we weren't in the wayyyy back) all that was left was fish! Needless to say, I didn't eat much :("
Pros: "Plane from HNL to MNL is brand new with free entertainment in every headrest. Crew was pleasant and helpful, came by with water often."
Cons: "Food on return flight was terrible. Got stuck with pork selection for first meal, which was extremely fatty. Second meal, pork again, with eggs. Completely inedible. Disgusting, and Im not a very picky eater."
Cons: "Why are there so many security lines to go through. Before going to the check in counter there's a security line; at the immigration there's a security line which I believe is required there; then at the gate there's a security line. There are just too many security lines to go through"
Pros: "Flight was on time..staff was courteous"
Cons: "Good was ok"
Cons: "First flight delayed, which caused us to miss connecting flight. Second rescheduled flight was delayed, extending travel time by over 8 hours. Never again."
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: "the food was good; fish with shite sauce."
Cons: "the hard seat and the shorter leg room."
Cons: "Like all four of my flights on Philippines Airlines, over 3 hour delay. They could not leave on time on any flights, over head speaker in terminal was just constant flight being delayed-significantly. Hawaii to Manila and back, you had to down load an app onto your phone prior to leaving for any in flight entertainment, on your phone only. Terrible food. This was my worst flying experience ever and I do 4 international trips a year. Save time and money, fly another airline even if it means a connecting flight, you will still get there quicker. Pathetic."
Pros: "most all the touchdowns are seamless no bouncy on the tarmac. the only thing a bit un nerving is the wind blowing on landing and the rear of the plane swings from side to side"
Cons: "sometimes only sometimes, the tea is steeped in a coffee pot ug ug ug change the pot dedicate a pot for tea, perhaps a different color."
Pros: "Good standard service."
Pros: "Food, gift pack, in-flight wi-fi based entertainment."
Cons: "Seating a little bit cramped in coach."

Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Entertainment center."
Cons: "There was no lunch"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the seats were uncomfortable and the air cabin was very cold."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, cancelled then on again. Communication regarding the flight changes were very confusing and had guest running though the airport not knowing what to do. My suitcase was busted and destroyed.There were not enough blankets for everyone in the cold plane. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Baggage handlers in Honolulu let you down. We arrived 10 minutes early but absolutely no bags in baggage claim for more than 30 minutes"
Cons: "Our BOS-SFO flight was delayed several times that would have caused us to miss our connection to HNL. Instead we were diverted to IAH where we spent the night at our expense. We are still in Houston awaiting our return to HNL. Too long a delay."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Cons: "Not having videos on plane in seat sucked! Mediocre over priced Food"
Pros: "Excellent crew members."
Cons: "Warm ac."
Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Really great service! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Spotty Wi-Fi. Only on an American flight"
Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Airfare price. Friends were able to get a better deal connecting through Japan."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "My dear was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Everything else and being really late"
Pros: "quick overall flight"
Cons: "No food options other than purchased snacks on an 8-9 hour flight"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants except for Linda were nice and friendly. The entertainment selection was great and made a 10 hour flight go quickly."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant named Linda on the flight who was very condescending. I tapped her on the shoulder for a request and she told me it was not appropriate to do so because “as flight attendants, we get tapped so often.” Then she skipped over me when serving the snack options because she didn’t make “eye contact” with me although my tray was down and I had my wallet and credit card ready for payment. I have been flying with United to go home to Hawaii for over a decade and have never been treated so poorly by a flight attendant on this airline. I am seriously considering flying with Delta, Southwest, and JetBlue exclusively from now on after this experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and nice"
Cons: "Being it’s a flight from Japan a more Japanese meal would’ve been better"
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "Flight Crew was helpful & apologetic for the inconvenience I incurred."
Cons: "The Who,e entire flight I had no Wifi and it was almost a seven hour flight."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Cons: "Crew members were not friendly. There was no in-flight entertainment available, and no snacks that were complimentary."
Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"
Pros: "Non-stop flight. We had an early arrival!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like how much it was to watch tv. Could have provided a blanket."
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"
Cons: "Had to buy entertainment"
Cons: "No free meals"
Cons: "Crew and food could be better"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly for the most part."
Cons: "On both flghts we requested a bassinet for our 3 month old. We were told on the phone if one was available we were able to have it. Both flights had bassinets but we weren't allowed access to them. On our first leg the bassinet was in economy plus and we were economy. On the way home our fight was downsized to a smaller plane and the airline was too busy trying to cut 25 people off the fight they weren't able to give us a seat where the bassinet would be. We asked several flight attendants and got different answers from each one."
Cons: "Honestly, the customer service with United was in need of serious improvement, from the moment we checked our bags to the time we were in flight, we were given very poor service, the man at baggage check in was extremely condescending, acting like we should know everything about United's processing instead of just helping us with our needs in the first place and it added unnecessary extra stress to our travels from Colorado to Hawaii. I don't even want to blame the employees as it was very obvious that they hated their jobs and just wanted the shift to be done with; something needs to be addressed about how they can accommodate both employees and paying customers alike. Let's just say I can't wait until Hawaiian Airlines expands to Denver flights so we never have to deal with United again, as this is the only reason we used this airline."
Pros: "We flew in comfort the entire trip! Plenty to drink and eat. Too much actually. The business class cabin was clean, seats ample and comfortable. It definitely made the 6-7 hours of flying more bearable."
Cons: "Poor wifi service."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "They offered complementary snacks and water at the gate when the flight was delayed by 2 hours for mechanical reasons. After such a long and tiring day, when I went to buy a drink onboard, the flight attendant didn't charge me. It was done as a courtesy for the lengthy delays. This was much appreciated and honestly made the irritation with the delays disappear. It's amazing what a little thing like that can do for a person. All the flight attendants were gracious and helpful. Overall, they made the flight good."
Cons: "I had to run to make this connecting flight due to the previous flight leaving an hour late, only to learn the flight was delayed. It was delayed 2.5 hours for maintenance."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "The spacious seats and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "The cost of food products on the plane. Could have been better food for the price."
Cons: "personal entertainment connection was spotty."
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"
Cons: "No leg room"
