Excelling flight, excellent landing. Good foods. My only complain that I paid for my seat and my seat was beside the restroom. Flight attendant are friendly.
Cons: "Not enough drinks offered for 15 hr flight"
Pros: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in for flight was not very good. Counter help was not well informed/trained."
Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew throughout flight, good plane configuration, even economy comfortable. Really impressed!"
Cons: "Maybe more veg selections on main menu and more/better beer."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding, crew, food"
Cons: "Very dense seating. Essentially it's like a budget airlines: very dense seating, no IFE. Blankets are given only on request"
Pros: "It was a very good flight and on time. The food was very authentic and tasty!"
Cons: "The airport need to expand the number of runways. Always late leaving or arriving because they can't handle the traffic and especially in bad weather."
Pros: "Business class was good but sears small"
Cons: "Flight to BKK better seats"
Pros: "The lay flat bed was amazing and I like the privacy of the seats; this Philippines Airline business class is enjoyable!!"
Cons: "Don’t ask the stewardess for recommendations on what dishes to eat for meals; their taste is quite different from yours!! My stewardess recommended a pork dish that she said was tasty, but I found it dry and chewy!! But that’s Filipino taste!!"
Pros: "Straight flight."
Cons: "No shuttle bus available from New Jersey to JFK. The food was not that good, meat was tough to chew. Meatballs were dry. The crew members were good ‘tho."
Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Pros: "Nice seats in business, good food, nice crew."
Cons: "Door closed ten minutes ahead of schedule yet had to wait on stand nearly half an hour to push back due to airport congestion. Arrived in HKG late at a remote stand and had to use stairs and be bussed to the terminal. I missed the last HKIA Express train to HK"
Pros: "Well organize & very courteous.."
Cons: "So far no complaint"
Cons: "No movies in thePR301"

Cons: "Flight is too long..."
Pros: "Awesome, excelent service"
Cons: "Nothing everything perfect"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was excellent!"
Cons: "The plane seemed very dated, although clean. The worse part was getting an IPad to watch a limited number of shows. The iPad was old and the headphones were cheap and didn’t fit well. After flying 5 business class flights in the last 2 weeks, this was by far the lowest level of entertainment available."
Pros: "the people"
Cons: "flight was delayed But what else is new with PI. AIR. My husband has flown many times with pi air and he says you care about your bottom line only. it takes money out of our pockets every time we are delayed and or our luggage is lost. Now go and do the right thing."
Cons: "Unorganized for seating, they don’t prioritize family with a baby to seat together. 12:35am flight still delayed!"
Cons: "The food on both flights was pretty disgusting. And I was never given the option to order a diabetic meal."
Pros: "Service was even better on the second leg of the trip and the leg room and seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."
Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."
Pros: "Flight crew did a great job."
Cons: "Flight check-in was total disaster. Unorganized lines and only for ticket counter agents compared to Emirates 28 ticket agent."
Pros: "It's an old aircraft so we were given a personal ipad each passenger which is so good! We were emailed for flight time changed but didn't know our aircraft was changed too so our reserve seats were gone too."
Cons: "Food is very dull. Our flight coming in and out were both delayed."
Pros: "It landed safely."
Cons: "It was an hour late leaving Hawaii THAT'S NOT GOOD! And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."
Pros: "The food was better."
Cons: "The flight got delay for 1 hour."
Pros: "the airline crew were very accommodating to get the family seated together when everybody were boarded."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Pros: "the service and overall quality and comfort of plane"
Cons: "Overall we had a good experience however we were not informed about change of departure time....so double check a day prior to your flight...."
Pros: "Nothing than stands out from the ordinary it's all very average."
Cons: "No entertainment no charging facility. Bland food without flavour Worst airport I have ever used."
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: "Customer service was horrible when I called to ask for assistance prior to the trip. The first flight was delayed multiple times for over ten hours due to weather (which was fine) and "waiting for a customer to board." The second return flight was again delayed. The worst was baggage: it took over two hours from parking at gate to me retrieving my check-in baggage from the baggage claim. This airline was horrible. Even though the flight crew was decent, I will not return. This was my first and will be my last time flying with this airline."
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Few passengers during the flight."
Cons: "They served meal an hour after the take off. Then another meal an hour before landing. I was starving. Some stewardess are not friendly. One stewardess spilled water on me and she didn't even say sorry."
Pros: "Quiet, food was good Good seating organization for separating family with babies and single person. I enjoyed my flight very much."
Pros: "The food was decent compared to all other PAL flights I have taken. The aircraft was also decent and no safety pins to hold seat pockets in place. Clean. The boarding scheme finally works when passengers are shown visuals and actually rejected when their rows are not yet called. Hopefully this service will only improve for the better and hope that flights to the US have also now improved as I have been avoiding PAL like a plague ever since the 2000s if I can as the food and service and the plane were mediocre at best. Maybe this time it is actually worth trying again. We'll see."
Cons: "The delay caused by cargo being loaded late is not acceptable especially when you have a tight schedule for transitting in SGN for another flight. PAL should strive to stick to the time and avoid these delays by planning ahead..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding took too long, overhead compartment to small"
