Pros: "All the flight attendants were very nice and they had amazing attitudes--especially on my flight going TO Hawai'i. All the flight attendants had smiles on their faces and they were always ready and willing to assist passengers. Every time they delivered something, they were always smiling; even when passengers asked for more assistance, the flight attendants delivered service with a smile!! Amazing!! This was my first time flying Korean Air, but it will not be my last!! My experience with Korean Air was fantastic!! I will definitely fly Korean Air again!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "Seats more comfortable than other planes"

Cons: "Staff were oddly unfriendly and I was awakened twice"

Cons: "long hours"

Pros: "I took me to my destination."
Cons: "I bought a Korean Air flight but it was a flight with another airline Jin Air. I felt ripped off, i could have bought the same flight for a whole lot cheaper. Well, i learned another lesson about business and how bigger airline uses their name to sell flights. Never again for me."

Pros: "Nice in-flight movie options. Friendly staff. Plenty to drink and enough to eat."
Cons: "Meal was chicken and rice and plenty to drink: water, coffee, soda. There was also pickled vegetables and tofu, but I was satisfied not eating those. Numerous intermittent announcements: [The usual preflight safety briefing, the mid-flight seat-belt and arrival eta announcements, the mid-flight turbulence and temperature comments, the customs-forms hand-outs, the duty-free inflight shopping opportunity announcement, the eventual apologetic conclusion of the duty-free, inflight shopping opportunity] together spoiled my calculated chance of finishing a short movie."

Pros: "Light flight, extra space."
Cons: "One of the luggage wheels is broken. No ground personal in the airport to take care of the matter. Called and eMailed the claim. However, KAL refuses to look into the matter."

Pros: "Lots of room, most space I have ever seen in an economy class. Nice attendants and good food."
Cons: "Every Korean flight I had this trip was delayed. Created problems when Korean Air gives you 1 hour to transfer at Incheon. When transferring, all passengers need to go through security again and there are long lines. Airport attendants were not nice and made us ask people to cut in line. After running through the airport, we then find out the plane was delayed an hour to accommodate other delayed connections! They could have told us this before but only rushed us off."

Cons: "Still no laptop plug"

Pros: "crew, entertainment, overall a great flight(s)"

Pros: "I liked that i had two seats to myself"
Cons: "No VR goggles"

Pros: "KA broke handle in my luggage and it was difficult to make them pay back some reasonable amount of money for that (my suitcase was just one year old) but at the end they did a lot. Love their metal cutlery instead of plastic ones. It's not only better to eat with them but also better for environment."

Pros: "Boarding was like any other airline, but once you got on the plane everything was at least a step above the US Air flight I just got off of."

Pros: "We were thrilled to be upgraded to business class for this long flight. Korean Air does it up proper., and I managed 5 hours of sleep en route. The food and cabin crew were excellent. It was tough to return to the economy class for our onward flight."

Pros: "The distance to Hilo."
Cons: "The boarding process."

Pros: "Need more TSA inspector and more conveyor to keep the line going to all gates."

Pros: "I liked that the flight ended."
Cons: "They undersold the flight and made us get iff the plane and wait for another. It was pretty obvious, but they claimed ‘maintenance issues’ as the reason. My guess is so that they wouldn’t have to give us anything for the inconvenience. Shady. I was looking to get a decent meal on my layover in Honolulu but instead I got a power walk workout in trying to catch my next flight. The food was pretty bad. No Baileys for my coffee? Bad Airline. Bad."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I like to being an honolulu for a while"

Cons: "We picked seats online next to each other and got separated during check in with different seats"

Pros: "Honolulu to San Fran left on time and arrived a little early. My hip had started to hurt so they gave me assistance and arranged for assistance to meet me at my final destination. I had roughly 1 1/2 hrs between my three flights and it all flowed like butter."
Cons: "No coffee when we woke up in San Fran, but once in the terminal I used one of the excellent concession stands. Perhaps a compromise could be serving the coffee that comes in 12oz cans. Ito- En? is the brand. Simple choice- comes with or without milk.Ice coffee is better than NO coffee."

Pros: "it got me there"
Cons: "paid entertainment, very little food"

Pros: "Free wine! Easy to reach USB charging port!"

Pros: "We took off early and landed early. Maybe 10 minutes early landing. Departed 7 minutes early. No entertainment to evaluate. Flight was too quick."

Cons: "I didn't like going to Honolulu to get to Kahului from Hilo."

Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"

Pros: "Hawaiian sets new low standards with rude employees, incompetence and dirty, uncomfortable planes. Truly a chicken bus in the sky."

Cons: "Your announcements are redundant slow enough I felt as if you think we're morons. You charge for movies allow them to start then promptly interrupt them for 5 minutes! You push credit cards like condominiums at a Mexican resort without the free drinks or trip. I've been living and working in the islands for years and will be avoiding your mainland flights when possible."

Pros: "The crew did a great job and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Getting to know the crew who served me in delta one was great! Food service was done pretty quickly and good snacks available."

Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"

Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."

Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."

Pros: "same"

Pros: "Left on time, smooth flight"

Pros: "Amazing crew , both ground and in fligbt"

Cons: "Please balance your serving with what you pair with the rice, there’s a lot of rice little vayand"

Pros: "The crew, the meals, the on time departure and arrival . Philippine Airlines got my attention . I was in BC, and their lounge was awesome and so was the service on board. And the flight attendants as well! A five star airline, thank you !!!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "The food improved compare from last year but during the 16 hours and 40 minutes flight the crew should have come out and ask the passenger or offer some drinks. They only came out when then they serve the meals. It’s a long travel, they should have checks the passengers if they needed anythin"
Cons: "Checking in your luggage take too long. The staff specially the Manila, seems not well train because they keep going to each other and discuss things or asked the other crew what to do. I started checking in at 4:08 pm and I finished past 6:00. Crews should checks the passengers every now and the"

Cons: "I don’t recommend to fly with philippine airlines It will really mess up your schedule. They keep changing and changing their flight schedule Very disappointed."

Pros: "The plane and crew were excellent."
Cons: "The food was very bad, not taste. Departure was over one hour late."

Pros: "i didnt like when we had to come out of plane and do a transit."
Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."

Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."

Pros: "Everything but the inflight entertainment. Nothing impressive."

Pros: "On time. Good service"
Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Food is better than most economy boarding and friendly cabin crew service."
Cons: "The tv screens and navigation feels dated, and earphones are a bit combersome. Probably got an older plane though."

Pros: "The flight, service, hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Their flight attendants are cordial and well trained."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as usual and their boarding system is terrible."

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: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."

Pros: "Flight was fine and food was adequate."
Cons: "No entertainment options for the three and a half hour flight. No tv or music available. Arrived in Bali 12:40 am. Very early and wasted hotel cost for arrival time."

Pros: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate. The reason I was given was that the US rules require water is not allowed to be carried into the plane... In-flight entertainment did nto have many choices of action films."

Pros: "I love watching all the movies"

Pros: "The service given from the flight attendants. They are very nice and make you feel comfortable. The flight was fast and we arrived 22mins ahead of our schedule time which was good."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Serice and selection of in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Japan is so nice and clean. People were very helpful. Good food."
Cons: "During my Manila 8 hour layover, someone forced tonight unlock my luggage, opened some gifts inside( canned candies) envelope containing money and gifts. At this point while writing this review, im not finish unpacking and will continue to check next day to make sure im not missing anything else."

Pros: "Service and food"

Pros: "The flight crew and seats"
Cons: "The poor communication and control of ground staff during boarding in Manila. Will not use PAL again due to the chaos there. Communication with customers was non existent"

Pros: "Densapar was a very easy airport to move around in and the boarding seating area was very comfortable. The stewardesses and loading crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "I’m not sure what is going on with airline seats. I feel like I have to slouch to be comfortable."

Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"

Pros: "The airport exclusive for PAL, smooth landing."
Cons: "The leg room was too tight , the seats look dirty and old. They run out of choice of food, so they keep on apologizing that you don’t have a choice. But take what ever they have."

Pros: "the plane landing without feeling it"
Cons: "good flight"

Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "One hour delay starting and 45 min. at the end, no Gate available."

Pros: "Smooth journey"

Pros: "Excellent customer service from the crew and airport staff. Very nice people."
Cons: "This flight we took was an older plane, no USB ports or entertainment was available. They do offer an app to watch free movies but you have to download it where your phone has good service. They also offer free in flight wifi, but that didn't really work too well for us. Not sure if that has to do with our carrier."

Pros: "PAL express from LAX to Manila had accommodation for their passangers"
Cons: "I could not connect to WiFi even though it was free."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment, small small seating space especially for tall passengers, flight crew who keep talking and gossiping out loud during the flight."

Pros: "Left on time, super friendly staff which is rare in my other options (usa carriers), the only non stop flight without layover available to me, faster than before by an hour, food really pretty good for airline food and lots of it. Good entertainment options for no extra charge. Did not get nickel and dimed over crappy movies and a bag of peanuts like USA based airlines love to do. Will use again as usual."
Cons: "Nothing except business class is so damn expensive. I would love to try it someday."

Pros: "I've always enjoyed the service I receive on Asian carriers. Last night was the first time I have experienced PAL. I had read some not so good reviews so I was skeptical and canceled my first booking. After looking at other options, I discovered PAL's direct flight from Los Angeles to Manila was the best option so I took a chance. From the moment I check in at the ticket counter in Los Angeles until we landed in Manila, I received exceptional service, tasty food and a clean environment. I have flown several Asian air carriers and have had great experiences on them all. PAL delivered the same experience I have come to love when traveling to Asia. I will definitely fly them again."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was not having discovered PAL before"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. At least this time they sent me a notification via email. On the flight from SFO to Manila, the flight was cancelled and we had to be reaccommodated the next day and I wasn't even notified that that was going to happen."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties. 9 pm delayed then new flight next day around 10/11am"

Pros: "The flight was late. Then, after we boarded d at around 1AM, we were advised that the runways were due to close at 1:30 AM and negotiations were underway to extend runway operations so we could take off. We waited on the plane only to later learn that the flight was cancelled and we had to deplane! After more waiting at the gate in the terminal we were to hotels. We went to bed at around 4:45 AM, only to get a wake up call at 7 AM whilst we were not leaving the hotel until 11:00 AM for a 1:30 PM departure! Horrible! We ended up leaving even later, at around 2:30 PM. Throughout, communication from the company was abysmal. Never again Philippine Airlines for me !"
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "They make it hard to upgrade your seat in route. No on board entertainment."

Cons: "Manila logistics are horrible. Flight schedule inconvenient for connections and all four of my flights were delayed more than an hour"

Pros: "Good service on the flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Manila airport is not well maintained - poor bathroom condition in the international terminal."

Cons: "there was no separation in the boarding process. General boarding started when announcement that elites can baord already. No blankets, no entertainment"

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."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Online check in and seating was not available so we had a hard time at the airport check in desk Flight was 1hr delayed"

Cons: "My Check-in Baggage was lost"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Not used to Red-eye flights"

Cons: "Both departure and arrival flights were delayed"

Cons: "It was an A330 plane and the configuration was 3-3-3. Usually, it's 2-4-2. This is not the way if you want to be a 5-star airline in 2020."

Pros: "it was nice flying with philippine airlines , just the laid over was very long , 8 hrs.."

Pros: "The food is ok and thy serve you plenty of it."
Cons: "Worn out seats, dated aircraft, our 12hr return flight had no in-seat entertainment, they are playing an obnoxious theme song on an infinite loop during boarding and exiting. Unless you need to fly directly to the Philippines, I would avoid this airline for connections to other points in Asia. There are just way better airlines that will get you to Asian cities for a little more money. Pay the extra, as it will be worth it for that long of a flight."
