Pros: "Good is in Vietnam finish"

Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "Clean airplane and ver polite crew."
Cons: "Was not allowed to get a seat assigned online. Only at airport checking when most decent seats were taken. Also could not choose the food online. Online site poor. Wasted a lot of time and still could not get seat and food preference."
Pros: "I thought the food was far bette than other airlines. The flight attendances were very helpful and kind. I love the little package i get on the seat. Toothbrush and tooth paste, a pair of slippers, blanket and pillow. Headsets are distributed later. The plane was warm for me so I used the blanket for back support instead."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Kayak used a sub company to reserve flights. My husband was involved in a collision at sea and was not able to make the flight due to military deployment status. I tried continuously to contact the sub company to request a waiver or hold on the flight. The number provided kept me on a hold . There were no answers to phone calls from information provided on receipt. Emails only stated the fees that would be imposed for any action I conducted. I will never use kayak again."
Pros: "Friendly af"
Pros: "Once we got underway, the trip was average."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay which is annoying to begin with. They could have boarded us later but they DEFINITELY could have been more polite about it. They announce very rudely that if we didn't like the situation, we should just get off. It's a 12 hour trip. A little courtesy would not hurt."

Cons: "Waiting on long line to use bathroom"
Pros: "I liked the ample legroom. I liked the food. I liked that the crew periodically offered refreshments. I liked the spacious overhead storage. I liked how far the seats reclined. It doesn't go back as far as first class seats do but better than the economy seats of other airlines/planes. I liked the clean restrooms. I liked the entertainment selection. I especially liked that you can view the external cameras."
Pros: "Delta crew was awesome"
Cons: "Running to flight"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and the food was very good, The flight was on time."
Cons: "All the advertisement books in the pouch were a pain. I could have put my reading materials in that space. The advertisements could be offered to passengers during the flight. Wouldn't probably need as many. Also, the cup holder should be up higher on the back of the seat. I kept bumping it with my knee and spilling it."
Pros: "First class service even n economy."
Pros: "I like the food,the crew are nice and very helpful"
Pros: "I requested a special meal which was accommodated and quite tasty. The flight attendants were very nice and always brought water and juice around the aisles. The warm towel was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Such a full plane with little space. Made the long flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."
Cons: "It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great too!"
Cons: "Shopping items available."
Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."
Cons: "Unprofessional boarding stuff in jfk ,not helpful & one of them was really rude.but cabin crew are nice . I will never recommend to anyone & I don’t think so I will travel again cathey pacific airlines.thanks"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."
Pros: "Crew was really good and the seating was quite okay"
Cons: "Seating distance"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "The food was amazing, and the cabin crews were all very nice people. I would love to use Cathay Pacific in my next trip. Also, I loved that they provide a lot of diverse movies from all over the world, along with good music lists."
Cons: "Honestly i think there are not much space for each passenger."
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Food& Beverage :)"
Pros: "Airport checkin crew sucked, in-flight crew were fantastic!!"
Cons: "They made me check my carry on for a flight that was MAYBE 50% full... ANd If the ground handlers were actually awake when we landed in Vancouver... took 43 minutes for the first 5 bags to come out.... and another 7 minutes before anymore... WTAF!??"
Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."
Pros: "Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Seats unconfertabale"
Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Less beverage served. No coffee or tea was offered."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seat on up position are too straight"
Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."
Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."
Cons: "They are a bit strict on carry on luggage weight but not that big of a deal."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Cons: "Unable to do online check in, have to waste time to line up in the airport. Not all people need visa to enter a country, this is rediculous that I couldn’t proceed to check in online because I do not have visa to enter my own country. Rediculous"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"
Pros: "This flight was 16 hours long was very very cold for about 5 to 6 hours needed jackets extra blankets very uncomfortable for that time frame"
Cons: "I loved everything except for the freezing temperatures for 5 to 6 hours"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight."
Cons: "The food, I don't eat meat and would like some other options. For such a long flight there should definitely be more leg room and agility to recline"
Pros: "the service"
Cons: "food no to much"
Pros: "Great service and food as always. I sat in business class and the seats and tv entertainment center are so old now. Time for an upgrade"
Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Pros: "The flight went okay, but my bag didn’t make it and still hasn’t been found."
Cons: "They asked me to change my seat, but when we asked to sit together with my husband, they were not able to accommodate it"
Pros: "Food and attentive staff"
Cons: "... Service was awful during the flight, and the second flight was delay for long time ...."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "You have to be there 3hrs before the flight to guarantee they won't resell your seat. I was at the terminal an hour prior at 9am when there was no line to check in or even at security but they turned me away. I rescheduled my flight and had to pay a lot extra to do so. I stayed at the airport to make sure I wouldn't miss it and the crew doesn't even start setting up until an hour prior... they don't start boarding until 30 minutes prior.... so they 100% sold my seat and then charged me to rebook it. They turned me away when I could have been at the gate 50 minutes prior, well before boarding"
Cons: "Broke my luggage"
Pros: "The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch"
Cons: "Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well."
Pros: "Route and travel time. The food taste good."
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Mediocre online check in experience! Their website does not accept payments for "upgrading" to an exit row seat. At the time of check in the only seat left available was an exit row so I could not proceed. Also, their airplanes are not equipped with Wi-Fi - quite unfortunate when you're flying 16 hrs from HK to NYC!"
Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Very little leg room"
Pros: "No issues with airline just other passengers. Plane was older model but very clean. Noticed flight attendants cleaning washrooms frequently. Meals were timely and quite tasty. Even though did not partake, liked how there were snacks available."

Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"

Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Boarded with delay"
Pros: "The flights overall were great. The crew were very professional and personable from when I checked in to when the plane landed. Definitely will be using Cathay Pacific again"
Cons: "The food was not very good, whatever bit I ate caused me a bit of a stomach ache. I was able to munch on some snacks. Please have some more fruit options available."
Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."
Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Cons: "I think all was very good"

Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"
Pros: "First class flight attendant shantee was fantastic. Breakfast was strange menu...but tssted ok."
Cons: "Better menu choice."

Cons: "The dinner was awful. No choice of meal. Everyone got a small plastic contained filled with macaroni in tomator sauce. Nothing else. Incredibly bad. Breakfast was better. Sausage and eggs, melon, yoghurt. But who is in the mood to eat at 2 am?"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the landing also was very good. The selection of movie are plenty."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Pros: "Everything escept the seat that was too small. I also had problems with the entertainment when trying to see movies."
Cons: "Seats too small ant could not watch Movies beacause the screen was defective."
Pros: "I usually have had great experiences with Delta. The meal selection was limited. By the time they made it up to my seat they had run out of what we wanted. Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Pros: "I liked that we got to my return destination early"
Cons: "The were no outlets and the wifi was not working. That's a big deal for me because I needed to do work on the plane!"
Pros: "The flight was calm"
Cons: "What I didn’t like is the inconviece where we had to change flight hour and aircraft and move to another one and we were delay for one all hour plus the 3 hours that we were there before the hour of departure that is really really bad"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In between Delta and Aeromexico changed my flight and made me travel more than 24 hours. In addition, I was traveling with a suitcase and nobody was able to pick it up for me. Layover time was 6 hours originally. Service from Aeromexico at JFK is the worst"
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "Good entertainment with games for kids, movies etc."
Cons: "No meals (5+ of flying), need to buy earphones, no place for hand lauggudge"
Pros: "The crew from SYD to LAX was absolutely excellent! The food is always plenty and hot, and I really appreciate being given a whole bottle of water. Also, thank you for leaving snacks out for us especially those who sleep through the meal service. Very satisfied with the airline so far!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. Terrible customer service. My bags didn't travel with me. My vacation got screwed up."

My flight was canceled from a Monday to a Tuesday only to find out that there’s no scheduled flight from NY to Manila on Mondays! They shouldn’t be accepting reservations then! The check in was good but boarding was horrible. The departure area was changed without an announcement over the intercomThe boarding was changed from 0050 to 0200Hr and the people on the boarding area looked clueless and impersonal. The flight crew was very helpful and kind which made the trip less stressful.

Better fly on time. Thats all

I like the crew, very friendly. The food was good but the serving was really small. They could’ve added bottled water for each main meal instead of pouring in a small cup.

Cons: "First time traveling via Philippines airlines, was hoping for a good direct flight, was just very disappointed. Not much variety in food, no really onboard vegetarian or seafood options. Comfort wise economy seat are bit tighter compared to other international airlines. Crew was very helpful, did their best to accommodate to what they had to work with, their crew truly saves their short-givings."
Pros: "Passengers and crew were all nice and accommodating. Food was great!"
Cons: "Temperature was very cold 21C but perhaps that is to inhibit spread of germs."
Cons: "Please balance your serving with what you pair with the rice, there’s a lot of rice little vayand"
Cons: "Many changes and mistakes"
Pros: "having the access to a direct flight to the Philippines."
Cons: "enforcing rules and regulations too passengers. as a person of purchasing additional leg room, this should be enforced to pay for additional leg room vs just giving that additional space for free. This is the second time I experienced and this has not changed since last year."
Cons: "Conduct an organized boarding procedure instead of just allowing anyone to board without making any prior announcements."
Cons: "Hoping to have a flight on time and not delayed."
Cons: "4 hours late departure from jfk."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. Lots of choice. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to come around more often to offer water or other beverages because dehydration is such an issue on a 16+ hour flight. In addition, we boarded on time at 1:00 for a 1:45am flight but did not leave the gate until 4:00am. This jeopardized my connection in Manila."
Pros: "crew was great/ airline was clean"
Cons: "the flight from manila to jfk. the security check was 3x. i justthought it was crazy"
Cons: "I do hope the cabin crews would smile more to let the passengers know they are happy to serve."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It’s such a shame that Philippine Airlines (PAL) charged extra for aisle and window seats! There was so much vacant seats during the flight. This was a deliberate way of PAL to extract more money from their passengers. In the future, my family and I will not choose PAL anymore. We felt cheated."
Pros: "The crew was really good and professional."
Cons: "Pls add quantity to the food. There was not enough meat to the amount of rice or pasta served. I got hungry between meals. Water was also not offered often enough between meals."
Pros: "Great seats (Premium Economy) and very friendly crew."
Cons: "A descent selection of movies, both old and new. But towards the end, I they kept stopping and I had to restart (from where I left off) a few times."
Pros: "great flight great service"
Cons: "Food was alright but could have been better."
Pros: "Crew was nice plane was comfortable"
Cons: "I have flown to Philippines many times with other airlines i hate to say it but PAL food is terrible The flight is long already but there was almost 2 hour delay and once i arrived in Canada it took about an hour to retrieve luggage Because i couldnt charge my phone due to no functional USB at my seat i was afraid i wouldnt be able to contact hotel shuttle"
Pros: "Aside from the scare of not making my flight because it was overbooked. I think the boarding process could have been a little more efficient. The staff are amazing as always which is why PAL is my preferred airline when traveling to and within Philippines."
Cons: "Since I have pretty broad shoulders, it’s difficult to sleep in the isles. Not to mention the multiple babies crying. Outside of that, everything was wonderful."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Missed the connection and had to pay to rebook"
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: "Quick"
Pros: "Great service and so much leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions."
Pros: "Great on-board service. Also, the food was very good for such a short flight."
Cons: "Inexplicable why the counter staff in Taipei would not begin issuing boarding passes until 4:05PM for a flight that LEAVES at 6:35PM! I was very concerned that the huge line would prevent me from processing through security and make the flight."
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Cons: "The crew ran out of meal choices for those in the back rows. Then there were no hot towels again for everyone in the back rows. There were no apologies for running out of hot towels even when it was asked about."
Pros: "food when it finally arrived"
Cons: "waiting in plane 4 hours with no updates on status"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. Didn't realize there was in flight entertainment until after the flight was over."
Pros: "I like the direct flight to Vancouver"
Cons: "I checked in early and was given a middle seat. I have back problems and walk with a cane and asked at the check in desk if I could have a window or aisle. I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "organized departure / arrival aircraft cleanliness pleasant staff great food & entertainment / free alcohol great leg room"
Pros: "They have the friendliest flight crew I've ever seen."
Cons: "There was too much leg room. I'm not used to that."
Pros: "crew is very caring and attentive, food was delicious,"
Cons: "the business class seats should be upgraded into more comfortable flat beds, biz class bathrooms too cramped!"
Pros: "What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment equipment on board is outdated"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "I"
Cons: "First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Good flight with excellent Serb=vice form the crew"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment US for one whole sections of the aircraft. The aircraft looked tired the table fittingwas broken ,"
Pros: "We got 2 food vouchers one at night, the other early in the morning. However the food establishment was so pricy a chocolate bar was $7 USD."
Cons: "13 hour delay, would not let us go home, would not cancel the flight, instead pushed the boarding time back one hour every hour starting at 4am. Flight was supposed to leave JFK by 11:55pm, we left at 1pm the following day. It wasn't solely due to the weather (we expected a slight delay), but in the morning, plenty of other flights were running regularly, while there were no updates. No one that cared, all the staff just told us it wasn't their fault. (Which is true to an extent), but all so mentioned that they were tired too, and they're exhausted too, which made many people angrier. They deflected a lot of statements."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin staff. Still the most covenient flight to and from the Philippines."
Cons: "The line at JFK. There we not enough seats for passengers. Sink was clogged in one restroom and remained so even after the "technical" layover at YVR."
Cons: "There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English."
Pros: "Vegetarian meal - way better than delta"
Cons: "None"
