Cons: "Poor service, rude flight attendants, didn’t give me seat they told me they were giving me, terrible food, flight attendants run past you instead of taking their time to give people beverages."
Cons: "I was notified once I arrived to the airport that the fight had been cancelled. This created a great inconvenience since I had a work meeting that I had to attend and was not able due to cancellation. I was moved to a separate flight within a different airline, which I appreciate but I still missed my work meeting due to the new schedule."
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A Philippine Airlines check-in personnel did not fail to make my family feel extremely disrespected by treating us in such a rude manner at their counter. After verifying our information, she proceeded to tell us we had no reserved seats for our flight. When I told her we had seat numbers (thus reserved seats) when I checked their website the night before, she had the audacity to imply that we were lying about these mediocre seats! After speaking to the supervisor, she then proceeded to tell us that we should be thankful for the seats she was able to give us, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME SEATS THAT WERE LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THE DAY BEFORE. Philippine Airlines need to better train their check-in personnel proper customer service to prevent passengers from having such unpleasant experiences with their staff. Our check-in process would have gone smoothly had she not replied in such a snarky manner to us and implied that we owe her for the seats we had in the first place."

Pros: "Overall it was a good flight with professional staff. The ground crews did a great job in both locations!"
Cons: "leg room is always a challenge."
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"
Pros: "The staff members were very courteous, and meals were healthy. Nice selection of inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The temperature was very cold. Many people wore jackets and used blankets and we're still cold."
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: "direct flight"
Cons: "aircraft is a bit old"
Pros: "We arrived safe. And they had movies."
Cons: "Terrible, terrible experience. We were weather delayed. Fine. Very inconvenient but have to accept it. However, THEY LOST MY LUGGAGE!!! The worse part was that they acted like no big deal, it happens all the time. And THAT is why I will never ever recommend PAL to anyone. It took them 4 days to get my luggage to me. No compensation whatsoever for their incompetence in arranging my luggage to fly along with me. They should refund 25% of the flight since they only delivered me, and not my luggage."
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing made me felt safe to fly."
Cons: "My seat from Los Angeles airport was giving to another passenger..I was ask if I paid extra??? They gave a middle seat for 14hrs flight same as coming back Manila to Los Angeles ... No priority at all.."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive, tried to make everyone as comfortable as you can possibly be in a 15 hour flight. Wouldn't hesitate to fly with this airline again."
