Cons: "My son & I traveled together on a trip from Manila to USA in Taipei. We had a 3 hour transit time, and waited by the gate of the flight from Taipei to USA. To exercise, I left the gate and walked around the terminal. Coming back to the gate, I could not enter because the ground stewardess blocked the entrance to the gate. I had to wait for 30 minutes until I finally was able to sneak thru the rope barrier that was placed there after the stewardess left.

Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example they sent me an email before the departure date in Korean only."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, greeted everyone with smiles. They seem to accommodate most requests, just be polite! There were a few people on my flight that were not the most friendly to them, but the attendants still tried to help as much as they could. Food is pretty good. I mean, don't be expecting a 5 star meal, it's still airplane food... International flight so I got 2 free checked bags, which was really nice."
Cons: "It's a small thing but the Chinese and Japanese movies only have Korean subtitles, it'd be nice if they had English too. Deplaning - the only exit is from the front of the plane, so it takes a while because there's 70-something rows of passengers."

Hostess refused to exchange it with beef saying thete eas no more on the spot, not even asking others waitresses from different raw, while later on when everyone wad sleeping I went to asked for water and there you go. She ead eating the beef from economic class and a dish from first class. I always thought that customers are valuable because we pay their salaries?! Very desapointed from this hotess from the Philli. Who during the who flight treat me like dirt, maybe she hates Americain? Also most of movies are children oriented only a few for mature minds and they are over a year old. First time on Asiana and last time even been a star alliance member what a disappointment!"

Cons: "Our flight from HK to LAX we were told that the pilot refused to wait for us even if we arrived in HK from cebu at 11:35 of July 29 and our flight to lax was at 12:05 .Cathay couldn’t do anything about it. We were billeted in a hotel far from the airport with free breakfast but no lunch was provided and the earliest flight they could give us was scheduled at 16:35 of Juy 30. Upon returning to the airport I asked a cathay staff regarding provisions for lunch but I was told there’s none.Overall our trip both to and from LAX were very uncomfortable and inconvenient. I hope Cathay will do something better in situations like we encountered. As of this writing I and my husband are still at HK airport waiting for our flight to LAX."
Cons: "It was a long delay, about an hour. The airline kept silence until too late. They gave us a blanket, some refreshments and where to have breakfast. Those who made a fuss were taken to hotel. Many others stayed at the airport and had a terrible night."
Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."
Pros: "Food was great. Crew nice"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Why do people fly with infants?"
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance came very late. This aspect can be improved further. It can be more efficient. Although wheel chair assistance is asked, the electric car to move people can also help to compensate for the wait times."
Pros: "We boarded on time. Again, cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. Flight was not full- therefore, no passenger present next to me. Did not eat either meal- therefore, can not vouch for them; however, did have a cup of noodles. Again, the variety of music was nice."
Cons: "Again, airport crew leaves a lot to be desired."
Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Pros: "My husband fainted twice and they are so nice to accommodate my husband to the first class section so he can rest and sleep well! Amazing crew and I thank each and every one of them for their concerns and kind heart!"
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Pros: "The crew service was very."
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed the connection"
Pros: "Overall is good."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helped me."
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "On time performance"
Cons: "Meal service was poor by crew members for economy class. In economy class - (center section-just after first class)-only one toilet . for Passengers. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "As always the food is better than 90% of airlines. The entertainment is always great and varied."
Cons: "The crew kept waking me up and were rude."
Pros: "Had 4 pairs of eye glasses taken from my golf bag. ! prescribtion, i pair reading and 2 pairs of sunglasses. bag was left open and contents spilled into the golf carry bag. Why did this happen and who did it??"
Pros: "I was seated around a number of sick people - and it was a middle seat so hard to get up since there was pretty much no space"
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was polite and helpful throughout my flights. The food was good, tasty and hot! Had some newer movies available."
Pros: "seats were wider and more legroom in economy section, better food than other airlines, crew were helpful, entertainment system offered good selection."
Cons: "one entertainment system kept freezing and did not work for the last 4 hours of the flight, toilet need more frequent cleaning."
Pros: "All crew worked hard and kind to passengers. Food was ok. They should have mineral water not from tub water."
Cons: "Mostly problem was their website!! Terrible!!!!! They should have mineral water not from tub water."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed. The food was good. The Moon Cake provided to help us celebrate, even though we were traveling, was an added example of why Cathay Pacific is the standard that everyone else is trying to emulate in Tourist class. The L.A.-based cabin crew provided outstanding service throughout the flight. The in-flight service manager made me believe she cared about the quality of the service in the back, which was outstanding. It was as good as a full, 13-hour flight could be. Even the in-seat entertainment was outstanding and reliable."
Cons: "The boarding process in Hong Kong was terrible. It was absolute chaos. If it had not been for then complete turn around after we were on the plane, it would have been the beginning of the flight from hell."
Pros: "Seating in standard coach compared to premium economy on US airlines. The seats reclined back enough that I actually was able to sleep most if the 13-hour flight. Meals were very good for economy. Cabin crew super polite and patient, which I've come to notice as a standard on Cathay. As an example, I have a good intolerance to shrimp/prawn. My outbound flight LAX-HKG, the dinner salad included shrimp. I explained i could not eat the shrimp. The attendant was kind enough to swap it with a leftover vegetarian salad."
Cons: "Trying to setup special meals to avoid food allergies is non-existent. Cathay offers many special meals, excluding food allergies or low-carb. I attempted to call in to Cathay to explain I could not have shrimp/prawn. The rep either did not understand or could not help. I really wished Cathay offered a pre-arrival meal like the other airlines. LAX-HKG and HKG-LAX are 13+ hours. Cathay offers a departure meal and a mid-flight meal. But by arrival time, I was starting to get hungry again. Thank God, I had enough of a layover, even with CBP processing, to grab a quick bite before continuing an additional 6-hours to home with no time to eat."
Cons: "I didn't like the Hindu meal that was offered to me but other then that everything was next to perfect ."
Pros: "Its a long flight from Hong Kong to LAX. It appears that the crew is so organized that it does not appear to be as brutal as it is."
Cons: "Traveling to and from Jakarta on Cathay Pacific the most challenge i had was not being able to hear the movies. There was something wrong each time. The staff tried to repair it with no success. All and all that is a minor thing. Its also a small thing. I wish passengers wouldn't be such slobs. Even tho the crew comes by often and regularly, people leave a mess behind them. Kinda sad. Its as if some feel they are supposed to treat crew like servants. Your staff as always, don't complain just go about there responsibilities with a smile."
Cons: "my luggage didn't go with me"
Cons: "Pilots apparently forgot the seatbelt sign pretty much the entire flight. Flight attendants were trying to get people to stay seated until it became clear the light was never going off. Literally 1/2 the flight people were just wandering around and the attendants gave up. Seriously guys, on a 10+ hour flight, that's not cool."
Pros: "Friendly and hard working staff. Clean aircraft. Decent movie choices. Gluten free meal available, though I can't make a selection for GF Meal + Seafood (pescatarian). I get chicken or meat in GF, and I don't eat either."
Cons: "Boarding is not by row numbers -- this is chaotic with long snaking line. Aircraft Toilets get dirty quickly with urine on the commode and the floor. There needs to be a quick drying wet disinfection system. You must enable Gluten Free meals to come with 3 choices - Veg, Non Veg, Seafood only."
Cons: "We had to go through the security twice. One the bags we scanned and the other before getting into the airline. Was a waste of time."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "Food was hot, tasty and nutritious. This time, the crew didn't make faces or roll their eyes when I asked for a snack and the service co-ordinator was visible the entire flight making notes and checking on people."
Cons: "Cramped in cattle class but that's not Cathays fault. I need to earn more to fly comfortably"
Cons: "Plane was Not full, enough social distancing."
Cons: "couldnt change it"

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: "Clean toilets."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "I love watching all the movies"
Pros: "Smooth fly. Sleep a little bit better not to shaky.some friendly passengers."

Cons: "7:55 pilot says we will take off on time at 8:00. Then sat on plane for hour, finally took off at 9:20."
Pros: "The staff was friendly."
Cons: "The airplane was over booked, there was not enough food for everyone, the food was stale and expired, the bathrooms exuded a stench to which you had to endure throughout the entore flight, there was not enough crew so requesting things took very long and we had turbulence for 90% of the flight, on a flight that was 11 hours long."
Pros: "Restrooms were cleaned every now and then.We had enough food and snacks. I like the warm face cloths to freshen up."
Cons: "There was free WiFi for 30 minutes but weak. The one that works bette, you have to pay."
Pros: "Friendly and very attentive flight crew."
Pros: "the crew very accomodating.helpful,"
Cons: "it is the worst airline I ever fly."
Cons: "The menu mainly. I have to understand that passengers are Filipino. Everything is so with sugar! It is not a complain. just I will have to get organized next time to buy some fruit or something more in accordance with diabetes and high blood pressure. overall great trip!"
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: "It was very organized and on time"
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Narrow seat and no leg room"
Pros: "I like that the plane was not very full and I had no seatmate beside me. The staff were attentive to the needs of the passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses, transferring."
Pros: "Everything no complaints."
Cons: "the airport in Manila is terrible. Elevator broken so had to carry my carryon up 6 or 7 flights of stairs. Not enough seats for the voucher breakfast and the breakfast was mainly tiny and full of carbohydrates."
Pros: "Seat is good and nes"
Cons: "For the ticket price- I think that it would be nice to have more comfortable seats as the flight is a long one and it would also be nice if the crew make their rounds to check on the passengers and ask if they are comfortable"
Pros: "Everything else was fine other than the comments as described below."
Cons: "Saw a specific female crew member ignore a passenger raising his hand and repeatedly saying excuse me to ask for a blanket, and she straight turned around to walk the other way. It's not difficult to get blankets from the overhead bin and with the possibility of other passengers asking, it's part of your job. A male crew member was attentive to the passenger after he immediately recognized the passenger's request walking through the aisle. This was from MNL to NRT. Also on one of the connecting flights (could have been same as above), the flight departed late because they allowed another passenger through that wasn't suppose to be on that flight on to the plane. They need to have better boarding pass scanners and /or the employees should pay better attention to that main detail. Air was really dry in the cabin, suggestion is to add some kind of humidifier in the plane to decrease dryness to the nose."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, attentive, and friendly Inflight entertainment was up to date with recent movies, tv shows, Food could be better"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful. Food was enjoyable."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Got worse as hours went by. Business class in front of my seat sat empty the entire trip. I understand everybody cannot be upgraded but I paid extra for aisle seat and extra leg room. Maybe passengers that paid extra for seats could get an upgrade when available? It would have been a nice treat to be able to sit in a seat that was actually comfortable. I guess the padding gets worn down from all the passenger travel an that's understandable but for passengers with 13-15 hr trips, sleeping isn't an option really and the seats are just not soft enough. Perhaps a nominal $100 upgrade fee when seats are empty in business class? I'm assuming the reason business was empty is it's just too expensive? Maybe a price adjustment is in order rather than letting those seats sit empty? Overall, the flight was a pleasant experience. The seat situation was just a blemish on the trip. I will continue to use Philippine Airlines though probably in the future. Thank you."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines airport was convoluted, no signage, no screens, horrible. Checked-in online to speed things up, but the ladies at the "Online check-in counter" was not there, and when they turned up, there were in training. Then the boarding gates/lounge. None of the restaurants accepted credit or debit cards (?). It's an international airport!?! Unbelievable. Once boarded, realised none of the seats had screens or any onboard entertainment unless you had downloaded the myPal app. It would have been handy if the check-in staff informed us of this. Then there were flight delays, with no explanation. No screens with any live updates. Nothing. Worst terminal on planet earth! Now the plane. It must be a plane bought from another airline who completed their 30 year lease of the aircraft, because it looked like from the 1980's or older. Falling apart, uncomfortable, toilets not working, dirty, run down. The air-crew were lazy and rude and were inconsistent. One would say they ran out of something, then the person next to me would ask another crew, and received what they requested (food, assistance, pens, etc). Horrible. The pilots rarely informed us of the flight updates. Just utterly horrible! I cannot believe I have to fly with them on my return leg back home :("
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing made me felt safe to fly."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "No leg space , hard seat, no entertainment tv (only a tv of the 80s every 10 seats showing same movie over and over for 14 hours. Terrible!"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be more interested in chatting w/ each other than serving. I had to go to the service area at least 5x to ask for water. We were in a "holding" area for 3 hrs prior to flight. Was asked to vacate another area in the terminal because we didn't want to b in this cramped holding area."
