Cons: "My first flight was delayed by 2 hours, so I didn’t make it to my connecting flight. The airline put me on the next available flight, but that one got delayed too. As a matter of fact, I’m still sitting on my connecting flight waiting to take off and I boarded an hour ago."

Pros: "Yes crew and plane were ok."
Pros: "The safety belt works"
Cons: "3hours late for a one hour flight. Hour and half boarding then after sitting on the plane foe a hour they announced the plane w Needs repair and were waiting on a mechanic to finish the repairs.

The airline offered me nothing, not even a meal to compensate for the inconvenience. The problem was mechanical, not weather. MNL is also an uncomfortable airport for layovers. Never agai. Sign Philippine Airlines!"

When I am late for my flight you cancel my ticket and make me purchase a more expensive one. More than the round trip I purchased so why don't you compensate me when your delayed"

Cons: "It seems like Philippine airlines is determined to be the lowest quality airline still flying. Too bad."
Cons: "My outbound flight (Manila to Taipei) was rescheduled so I had to make alternative plans. On the day itself, we were told that the flight was cancelled with very little warning. I wasted a total of 8 hours waiting to be put on another flight. They transferred us to the cheaper Cebu Pacific flight that left 5 hours later (at 10 pm!) than the PAL flight. Most horrible flying experience I've ever had in my entire life and I've been flying internationally for almost 20 years. Their customer service is terrible, not transparent and not helpful. They took longer than necessary to rebook people to other flights. Completely horrible. I have another flight booked with PAL that I can no longer cancel, but after that one, never flying them again!"

Pros: "Did not like the flight at all."

Pros: "Quick and fast boarding"
Cons: "So when I bought the tickets. I paid for extra luggage of 40 kgs, then I unselected the assigned seating since I didn’t care where I sat, and I would rather use that money to pay for the extra luggage. I double checked several times before proceeding. At the check in counter, guess who had to pay extra because apparently the 40 kgs did not go through."

Boarded early wjich is unusual for this airline to ever be on time...then sure enough 30 min delay due t9 manila traffic?? This country needs a new major airport or updated traffic control and another runway! This pilot had the smoothest landing...the last few flights have been awful landings, hard and scary"
Cons: "Unsmiling flight attendants...what has happened? The ladt two flights ver sober looks, never smile?"
Pros: "The timing of the Cebu Pacific flight from Bali to Manila was fantastic. Short immigrations lines in Bali and upon arrival in Manila. Seats were better than expected, although we paid extra for the 2nd row. Crew was professional."
Cons: "We pre-ordered food and it was soggy and over cooked. Not worth it. Flight left late. Flight attendants were not helpful,"
Cons: "No wifi, no food or drinks provided. Checkin was a very difficult process with employees giving us different answers on same topic. No display in terminal where to check in on an International Flight. Charged us to check one bag each and would not allow us to carry it on although the same bags were allowed as carry on from NGO-MNL Were told by one person we could checkin for our flight, told were we’re at wrong counter and international counter was not open yet. My checked bag was ripped open somewhere in the process of being transported!! I don’t think I will fly this carrier ever again!"

Pros: "Thank you for the great services."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seats, friendly staff."
Cons: "Being nickeled and dimed at every conceivable opportunity. Dial back on the greedy profiteering. Complimentary in-flight (non-alcoholic) drinks would be nice."
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH.

Cons: "Late leaving the gate then waited an additional 45+ minutes in a line of planes waiting to take off because NAIA is down to one runway."

Pros: "Decent fare; organized boarding system"
Cons: "Delay both ways;"
Cons: "The connecting flight in between was not very clear during search. It was only Manila to Cebu but there was a connecting flight to Taiwan. I would have forfeited my flight if I had not brought my passport along. So the route was MANILA to TAIWAN to Cebu WHY DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SUCH A STUPID ROUTE??? AND UNLIKE OTHER TRAVEL SITES, YOURS DO NOT EMPHASIZE CONNECTING FLIGHTS VERY CLEARLY!!! Also, there was no way to cancel it. I was really disappointed in your site!"

Cons: "The flight was on time. The food was disgusting. Ordered chicken adobo and it came in a form that I guess even a dog won’t eat it! Even my cat food looks much better, and it has the sauce. Their adobo missed the... adobo sauce. Flew twice with them but nah. Not gonna do it again. And I’ve got more than 10 low cost companies. Cebu too. And all European low costs. Cebu, is much much better than airasia. At least their food is delicious and you have enough space."

Pros: "Made a reservation at a time because we were flying in from elsewhere. They moved our flight time up 2 hours, canceled all the later ones,and they were 30 minutes away from where we landed 1 1/2 hours before. We called and got no help.

Cons: "Hey I know its the Philippines, I've been here many times, but ALL of the Air Asia flights were delayed, ours 2 hours...we flew Air Asia to Kalibo last week, delayed 4 hours.
