Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
Pros: "Everything on the 787 except the seats in Biz Class"

Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"

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!!"

Cons: "Cold food"
Cons: "Seats too small for a seven hour flight"

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

Pros: "I loved the aircraft and the great service. They offered great food and the service was fast"
Cons: "Everything ok"
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: "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."
Pros: "A proactive, kind and proper treat on board"
Pros: "Air Korea continued to be awesome"
Cons: "Still no laptop plug"
Pros: "crew, entertainment, overall a great flight(s)"
Cons: "air so dry in cabin"
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: "While I slept for part of the flight they placed a note telling me that they let me sleep and didn't want to disturb me."
Cons: "There were no outlets on the plane to charge my devices and it was very cramped in my seating area."

Cons: "Everything was enjoyable on return flight"
Pros: "Food n staffing"
Pros: "I loved the caring & attentiveness of all the flight attendants, the individual videos for each seat, the spaciousness between seats, & the complimentary wine service. My flying experience in Coach felt like other carriers First Class. Can't wait to fly again."
Pros: "Wow! That sums it up. Premium coach was like first class on some other airlines. This is by far the best airline I've ever flown."
Cons: "The website doesn't work very well. It's also difficult to navigate."
Pros: "the food was god. the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Purchased tickets through Kayak on ANA with confirmation. Bumped to United after confirmation. Although I realize both companies are Star Alliance, the bait & switch is unacceptable & I would NOT have purchased these tickets for United. Flight had much more turbulence than my experience on ANA which is why I refuse to fly any other airlines. Will recommend against Kayak to everyone I know."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow near the window."
Pros: "Great service, great flight"
Cons: "Warm not much as."
Pros: "Service and the fact that flight was not full provided for a better experience. Staff was super friendly and attentive. The films were new and tv was big! Food was ok."
Cons: "The business lounge in honolulu"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight at convenient times. Great cabin crew and service."
Cons: "It was a packed flight. I'm assuming that given this, I could not change seats. While the ANA staff were helpful, I myself had trouble on this flight and became unwell. I sought help from ANA upon landing and received it."
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
Cons: "Seats could be better"
Cons: "Salad and fruit came Frozen"
Pros: "I loved that the interior was completely darkened for about seven of the 12 hours of flight time."
Cons: "I just couldn't get comfortable in economy class. Traveling in business or first class was visibly MUCH more comfortable, so be aware that it may be difficult to get to sleep."
Pros: "ANA did a great job of keeping customers informed about every detail regarding the delays we experienced with the flight. ANA did a great job of finding me a new flight when delays caused by the ground crew caused me to miss a connecting flight."
Cons: "Late boarding caused us to miss connecting flights."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic (except that I didn’t watch or listen to any of the entertainment"
Pros: "Wish there was more movies in English"
Pros: "It was an awesome flight, very nice and great service,"
Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"
Pros: "Great service and good food"
Cons: "Nothing felt like they were glad to have me onboard."
Pros: "Didn't realize I'm flying united airlines. Nowhere on my itinerary was it mentioned. The whole time I thought I'm with ANA all the way"
Cons: "The flight itself was good but booking with bayaan, never again. I have used kayak many times but for the first time since I booked vayama changed me flight 6 times. They also could have mentioned my first 2 legs of my flight was with united. I tried to check in online thru ANA, couldn't go thru with many attempts until finally I called and the agent mentioned to check in thru united."
Cons: "The food quality was slightly lower than that on the outboud flight. I ordered Hindu Meal."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Cons: "Boarding bridge was not available at Narita airport. Stairs (trap) to ground were tough for my mother who has bad legs."
Pros: "highly efficient processes on ground (Narita airport), clean and enough space in airplane, exteremely supportive and polite staff"
Pros: "crew was awesome! Service was outstanding"
Cons: "a little warm on the plane. food was ordinary"
Pros: "I fly around often, at least 10 times a year, and ANA has always had the best service, cleanest planes, and the best entertainment. I recommend flying with ANA anytime you travel."
Cons: "I booked my meal while booking my tickets, but still I didn't get the food. They told me that they don't have any information about my meal.. I paid so much money for tickets and they are saying they don't have meal . When I talked to ground staff about this they also said the same thing and when I asked them what about my next flight meals they said that will let me know at the the time of boarding that they can provide me with food or not. Hell it was so disgusting that you guys will tell me at the time of boarding that you are going to let me know whether you are going to give me food or not.. And they know that I am not alone I was traveling with my 5 year old son also. They are really hopeless. I am really disappointed"
Pros: "This flight seemed to go very quickly. A wonderful selection of good movies and TV, adjustable headrests (up and down as well as side wings), decent amount of room and foot space, polite crew, good food!"
Cons: "can't think of any.!"
Pros: "staff was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "movies were not sp good"
Pros: "Great comfort."

Cons: "food was barely passable. awful landing."
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice lighting. Not too bright"
Cons: "The overhead light is too far up and when I turn on the light it's lightning up more than just my seat. Other people beside me are sleeping and it's too bright to turn on the light."
Pros: "Not a single thing. I will be talking to a reporter about this since they are interested in the story"
Cons: "I left 3 hours early from my hotel. This was my first time ever being in the Philippines so I did not fully grasp the amount of traffic. I arrived at the check in counter with 52 minutes to spare and they told me I could not board. The plane wasnt even boarding passengers yet. I even went as far as to say that I would leave my luggage as I had to get on the flight. They did not allow this either. They said that I would need to get on another flight. To add insult to injury they did not credit me with ANY of what I had purchased for my previous flight since I ordered through Kayak. I am 100% dissatisfied with ANA and I am asking kayak to rectify what they have done. I have already emailed ANA upper management and will be taking this to social media, the news, and any other outlet I can find. I had to pay for a hotel, miss 2 days of work and pay for a 700 dollar "premium" seat ticket since that was all they claimed they had. I find that last part funny, since I saw about 12 empty seats on my flight. I am hoping to hear from kayak so they can explain why they do business with a company that clearly does not care about it's customers."
Pros: "Courteous crew good food and choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Would appreciate better seats"
Pros: "Excellent service! Previous notice me that boarding time & gate number~ I'd like to book the tickets here!!=)"

Cons: "No explanation on how to use entertainment."
Pros: "The food was amazing - they had no right to make food that good. I really was blown away."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "It was a rough landing."
Pros: "Food is good. Bottled water is provided during meal. Leg room in economy class is good"
Cons: "Seats are already auto assigned. I did online checkin as early as it opened but no more seats to choose from. On-flight movies are limited and old movies"
Pros: "ANA has always been a great airline to fly.They treat the passegers with respect.That is something the airlines from the United States needs to learn.Served a meal on a two hour flight.That is something you can't get on a six hour flight from airlines in the United States."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I was given the impression that i was flying on ANA planes when I booked the ticket. After I paid, I noticed that the planes with ANA flight numbers were actually United airline planes. The 11-12 hours traveling from Chicago was on an OLD plane that had TV screens way up high. Most unpleasant flight."
Pros: "Good on time"
Cons: "Small table"
Pros: "Very accomodating crew and they are all smiling all the time"
Pros: "The overall flight experience was great. Excellent entertainment system with touch screens attached to the seat in front. Good selection in meals and metal utensils were provided. Airplane wasn't full giving me the feeling of space. Earphones, pillow, and blanket were provided. Flight crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat could not recline back."

Cons: "The seats don't really recline at all"
Cons: "The flight was so packed. The boarding process took forever! No room for even small carry-ons. And as a 5' 4" 125lb woman, I had problems fitting in the seats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and I really value that."
Cons: "After boarding on time, we departed about 51 minutes late because of some baggage inspection issue. For the entire time, there was only one announcement about the delay. This delay ruined my schedule on the arrival."

Cons: "Wifi wasn’t working"
Pros: "Love HA"
Cons: "First Class Hehe"
Pros: "Free entertainment. Complimentary food"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "Took time check in too long. I have been just standing front of check in counter 1hour. It was bad service."
Pros: "I like biking through kayak. I just wished they could warm u.s but too book a1 way flight to NZ because your wasting money."
Cons: "I booked a 1 day trip not realizing I could only book a round trip tick to get in new Zealand. I almost missed my flight and had to book another 1 way trip.. wasting over $100 dollars. That ruined my flight exp."
Pros: "Great intro and conclusion to a tropical vacation"
Cons: "Temp too cold. Need free blanket"
Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."

Pros: "Great service and very attentive. Food was pretty good"

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Lines were too long. Processing of passengers need a massive overhaul."
Pros: "Large full plane that had friendly staff and left on time. No sooner had it taken off than it seemed we were prepping to land"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and entertaining! The food was awesome! The teri chicken sandwich was yummy!!"
Cons: "You have to pay to watch movies. I was hoping for a few free movies or television shows."

Cons: "No room,food so so, way charge for entertainment?"
Pros: "330-200 had upgraded lay flat first class seating. Very nice"
Pros: "Very good flight. They offered food and beverages as well as pillows and blankets. Will definitely recommend in the future."
Pros: "Crew and food we good luckily was on a flight that wasn't packed with riders"
Cons: "Kiosk system was poor and hard to understand then had to go way down outside to drop of bags then go back to where we were to go to security very confusing needs to be a smoother process also luggage tagging was confusing and a little different than others airlines fortunately someone helped us out"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and polite but not as attentive as normal."
Cons: "Food was not worthy of first class, the chairs were old and should recline more for a 10 hr flight if it's not going to lay flat. Not sure if legal prevents it from reclining more."
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."

Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was great. Left you alone if you wanted to sleep. Flight was uneventful and that's good."
Cons: "No wifi in the airport or on the plane?! So on a 6+ hour flight no entertainment unless you rent a $15 dollar tablet."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."
Pros: "More leg room."
Pros: "Smooth flight, with premium video somehow! No delays. Good array of movies, new and old."
Cons: "1 food 'option' of "sweet and sour bits of stuff with rice." Felt like public school cafeteria at best. Also not enough of it for a 6 hour flight (and I'm a skinny guy). Knee room in economy is killer for us tall guys (6'3). Swear it gets smaller every year."
Cons: "Pay for ipad"
Cons: "1/2 hour late getting to Hilo"
Pros: "Hawaiian fruit drink. Nice movie selection on Ipad. Nice staff. enough space eg empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Would be nice not to pay so much for Ipads to watch movies, shows. Nicer to have free screens on seats in front. No fault of the airline but there were really long lines at the airport to get through security."
Pros: "I just liked the feel and ambience. Crew made it nice"
Cons: "My bags not making it to my final destination"
Pros: "inflight service consistent good. my top favorite airline."
Pros: "I always love flying Hawaiian, nice planes, nice flight Attendants, they are always on time or early. Their food and beverage service is great too!!!! It's always a pleasure to fly with them. I make multiple trips per year."
Pros: "Flight 22 did not have a gate at SEATAC. We waited over a hour before we could disembark!!"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option on this flight for the meal, very disappointing. Other Hawaiian flights I've been on have all had one."
Pros: "individual entertainment"
Cons: "system was slow, unresponsive touch screen, issue resolved with system reboot"
Pros: "Best flights I've ever had! Complimentary meals and wine/drinks and snacks. Quick, with great service."
Pros: "Good customer service. Very peaceful environment"
Pros: "The Self Check-in computer terminal would recognize my credit card or my confirmation number. So I had to wait in line 20 minutes st the customer service desk. The staff person said the same problem was happening more frequently. And, I have a Hawaiian Air frequent flyer account. I bought my ticket through KAYAK, maybe that was the problem. Hawaiian Air planes are newer and quieter than Alaska Air. And there serve a real meal for free. They have more leg room too. I like Hawaiian a lot."
Cons: "Six non stop crying kids from Hawaii to seattle. That's all I have 5o say. Unreal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hrs. Due to mechinal problems"
Pros: "I'm really glad I used Kayak, it was very easy to use the app, it quickly guided me through the fields, booked my flight and excepted my payment the first try"
Pros: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in for flight was not very good. Counter help was not well informed/trained."
Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"
Pros: "Nice crew, direct flight to LAX."
Cons: "Philippines Airlines has two things it could improve on: one is the food, which is probably the worst of any airline I’ve flown on in recent years. But the thing that is most problematic is that it is not a member of any alliance. I live in Manila, but only for a year or two, so would be nice for those miles to be transferable. If PAL didn’t have the only direct flight from Manila to LAX, I would avoid the airline altogether for long international flights."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment, low cost, service okay"
Cons: "Bad service in terms of understanding things."
Pros: "Business class was good but sears small"
Cons: "Flight to BKK better seats"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment but did have free wifi"
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!!"
Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Pros: "Good check in and inflight crew service and attitude."
Cons: "Poor IFE (overhead LCD screens too small and no headsets provided for sound), seat quality/pitch, no wifi, poor snack quality/type (barely edible choco cupcake)"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Terminal 2 in Manila has very few options for dining and gifts. Plane was late in arriving to Terminal 2; apparently had to offload in Terminal 1, then taxi to Terminal 2, then had to be inspected extensively before we could board. Due to late boarding and ~25 wheelchairs, boarding was disorganized."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, movie and tv options were great."
Cons: "I appreciated that I was given a gluten free meal but one side was hot and the other side was slightly cold still. I am not sure how that could be possible, but it was my experience on that flight."
Pros: "The crew is totally unprofessional and uptight"
Cons: "A more professional and well trained crew"
Pros: "On time. Good service"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Cons: "I don’t know why but I felt like they just didn’t care about your needs, I’m diabetic, and I needed to eat something sweet because my sugar levels dropped low, I asked the stewardess for a cookie but she didn’t want to give me one, I had to bagg her for a cookie, Very disappointing."
Pros: "comfort is alright"
Cons: "no entertainment not even music"
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and small. My knees were in the seat in front of me the entire thing. I was in a middle seat and was elbowed by the guests on either side of me. Luckily, they were nice. The flight attendants were really unorganized during meal service. Some people had no drink until after their meal. The food was average. They played Infinity Wars, which was cool, but you had to watch as people get in get up and move around."
Cons: "No movies in thePR301"
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: "the people"
Cons: "flight was delayed But what else is new with PI. AIR. My husband has flown many times with pi air and he says you care about your bottom line only. it takes money out of our pockets every time we are delayed and or our luggage is lost. Now go and do the right thing."
Pros: "The crew and staff"
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline"
Pros: "Service was even better on the second leg of the trip and the leg room and seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."
Pros: "Fast boarding and very nice staff."
Cons: "Seats were hard to recline"
Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."
Pros: "It's an old aircraft so we were given a personal ipad each passenger which is so good! We were emailed for flight time changed but didn't know our aircraft was changed too so our reserve seats were gone too."
Cons: "Food is very dull. Our flight coming in and out were both delayed."
Pros: "It landed safely."
Cons: "It was an hour late leaving Hawaii THAT'S NOT GOOD! And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Pros: "The prompt boarding and courteous staff."
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."
Pros: "The boarding was on time and it was a smooth landing."
Pros: "the airline crew were very accommodating to get the family seated together when everybody were boarded."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Pros: "I got to the airport at 4:45 am (who urs and 15 min before scheduled departure). The airport employees couldn't find my flight. They said the 1st ANA flight is not till 9:30 am. Then after 30-40 min of confusion, searching, etc, they sent me to another terminal which was 40 min away! Where they couldn't find my flight either at first. Then they finally came back and said that per their schedule, the first flight out is on ANA is at 6:45, not 7. And the reason why they couldn't find it is because it was only code share ANA but operated by Philippines airlines. As a result I missed my flight, missed my work and had to deal with co sequences. Unacceptable"
Cons: "It was fine."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and just barely fit into my seat. Two inches taller and I wouldn't have fit at all. I know they're marketed towards a primarily Asian audience, and the plane was totally full, but don't expect to be comfortable if you're bigger than 6'."
Pros: "Overall flight and crew service were excellent"
Cons: "I wasn't able to enjoy the entertainment due to poor wifi connection"
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Pros: "comfortable plane, nice crew, on time"
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Few passengers during the flight."
Cons: "They served meal an hour after the take off. Then another meal an hour before landing. I was starving. Some stewardess are not friendly. One stewardess spilled water on me and she didn't even say sorry."
Pros: "Quiet, food was good Good seating organization for separating family with babies and single person. I enjoyed my flight very much."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "For an international flight to not have individual monitors is very unappealing. The expectation is that we're to use our own individual mobile devices and yet no one informs passengers ahead of time that this particular airplane has no monitors so you should download the app. Then if we did manage to have the app, there are no USB or plugs to allow passengers to charge their devices in order to use the app?! Makes no sense. This flight (PR 102 MNL-LAX) was also terrible due to the fact that it was delayed more than 1hr 45 mins. I know several passengers that missed connecting flights upon arrival to LAX. When we finally landed at 8:51 pm (orig 7 pm), we were held on the plane and finally able to deplane at 9:30 PM. During the time waiting, the power (air, lights, etc) were turned off so we were essentially sitting/standing in darkness for approximately 30 mins. Then baggage wasn't unloaded until almost 10:45 pm. All the passengers were standing around waiting for their luggage for an extremely long time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding took too long, overhead compartment to small"
