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.

If ur in economy and westerner, seats are tiny. I went biz class and seats are old, food just ok, stewardesses just ok. Movies are Vina iPad mini and the headphones are the old foam style and you can’t hear the movie well. If u want to be pampered with champagne, great food, etc., go elsewhere. If u just want to get from point a to point b, this is the airline for you

The aircraft was relatively new (an A321 Neo), the seats were comfortable, and the crew was great.

My wife and I had our seats changed by the airline after we had already made seat assignments, so we were not together on either of the round trip flight to Kauai from Los Angeles. Flights were both full so no way to change seats once at the airport. Aircraft did not change from when we booked our flight and made seat assignments, to the day of the flights. The food served was okay, but I don't eat carbos and all the food served was full of carbos. I choose to not utilize a smart phone, or other electronic devices, and the plane had no entertainment services if you don't have a smart phone or pad.

Food and entertainment we're solid. Creature comforts we're solid for economy international (toothbrush, blanket, socks, and sleep mask.)

Never got an e-ticket until the night before outbound flight. Combined with the airline's outsourced customer service, lack of record keeping, and mediocre customer service skills on both sides of the Pacific, boarding was a traumatic experience.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
