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.

Pros: "Overall experience and the room in economy was execellent."
Pros: "No and No"
Cons: "Was in business class and service is poor. Food was mediocre and service was not at par as other business class airlines. Toilet is dirty most times and lacking toiletries. Very unsanitary. Only thing good is all service staff always smile but lack proper and on time service training."
Pros: "I love the service from the crew! I lost count after 6 glasses of coke and orange drinks. They had a lot of patience! I loved also the flight, there wasn’t or no air turbulence."
Cons: "The Manila international airport still needs improvement when checking in, the lines were incredible long and there wasn’t any space to walk around in terminal 2 PAL international departures. If you have big shoulders..you are better off with business class, the seats are for slimmer people."
Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."

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."
Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"
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: "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: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."
Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"
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: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Seats are too Small"
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."
