Pros: "I love the workers, I love the entertainment. The pilot did a great job."

Pros: "the service. coffee and teas was very good. probably because of the Fiji kind attendants and water."

Pros: "Great choices for entertainment; food was hot; crew was excellent to the point of bringing a hot moist towel to wash face/hands with in the morning before serving breakfast; boarding went quickly with having 2 rows to fill in, not just one; the best, however, was the cabin crew bringing water consistently through the night to those that were awake. My husband even took a glass and held it for me while I was snuggled under the blanket. Kudos, crew!!"
Cons: "HA! For me to find something 'wrong' would be hard! Maybe the headphones didn't fit the head just right and couldn't hear equally well out of the speakers? Maybe a bit more leg room for my extra-tall husband?"

Pros: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."
Cons: "Connecting in LAX with waiting 20 minutes at the remote gate for the bus, the bus ride and waiting for luggage to clear customs is virtually impossible to go though and make the connection. Having literary run out of customs and being told you missed your boarding time and now you are on stand by is not happy making. American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."

Cons: "Crew not careful during food/beverage service. Received a 2nd degree burn from tea accident due to getting spilled on"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Smoorth landing, great staff, meals, checked bag"
Cons: "Crowded by fellow psger who left tv on all night and tapped feet for the full flight"

Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."

Cons: "The plane is old and the only entertainment was a screen overhead not easy to see. Hard to keep the children occupied. A family of 4 cannot all sit together as the configuration is 3 & 3."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."

Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."
Cons: "Need to have special ENCLOSED seats for young children and their parents! It was a horrible night hearing a 2 year scream the entire night! The food smelled so bad coming down the aisle, it was nauseating."

Pros: "Very good food and service. Plane was spacious and looked new."
Cons: "On board entertainment was limited."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "I'd seen some poor reviews but found the flight to be just fine. Decent economy seats for such a long flight, good service, food, and entertainment options."

Pros: "It was okay the plan was a bit small and uncomfortable for an international flight.."
Cons: "My luggge didn't make the flight...I had to wait almost two days. And the airport is not close to where I was staying. No one offer to compensate for the inconvenience. We had to leave to another island so we was in a rush for our luggage."

Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"

Cons: "my seat, i am to big"

Cons: ". I was shocked to see social distancing was not implemented with no seats apart and I was in the middle of four seats. If the journey is as important as the destination, then it already failed the minute I was seated in a very intimate setting alongside strangers and seeing the economy class fully booked. The airline defended this by saying they have special economy seats but I complained that this is not equitable since the seats are limited and not everyone could afford an upgrade. Even if they could, the passengers would still be seated side by side and the total number of passengers aboard a tight and enclosed space or load factor is still very high. The airline’s policy was so inconsistent with the very rigid rules of the different government agencies upon disembarkation."

Pros: "The crew were attentive & accommodating."
Cons: "Food was not that good at all."

Pros: "Yes, the crew were amazing.. since I was booked In the economy class, it was not that comfortable but good enough."
Cons: "There are not much choice for food aside from the usual that come from the airline catering service."

Cons: "Not enough drinks offered for 15 hr flight"

Pros: "No!"

Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."

Cons: "No movies, seats were hard , could have used more beverages."

Cons: "food was so bad. bread/roll was served long after the food is served, due to zoning assignments. NO FREAKING INFLIGHT ENtERtainment the whole FReaking 14hrs of flight time. very poor, very bad for expensive airfare tickets"

Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"

Pros: "The flights were fine. The service good. The airplanes clean."
Cons: "The food was not as good as other Asian airlines. Transferring planes in Manila is a nightmare. They performed an extensive passport check and 2 additional security checks for everyone. Took almost 2 hours. Had to be chaperoned to the next terminal. Manila airport is a disorganized mess. Not the airlines fault but be aware when transferring through Manila"

Pros: "Yes, they were nice and approachable at all time. The seat was fine, I slept most of the time"

Pros: "I particularly admire the free media entertainment options and quality of the meals served!"
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the cabin, where it is rows of four seats, and the way the space under the seats in front of them were divided caused there to only be three separate and staggered places to put carry-on bags. With all four of us in my row needing to put bags under there, it was dicey."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seat was excellent"
Cons: "Having the luggage checked in transit without going out to open it for inspection"

Pros: "The crew is all right helpful."
Cons: "The flight time keep on changing:("

Pros: "Very friendly staff and modern plane."

Cons: "The movies in the entertainment system were boring and the food fell short of what I would expect from business class."

Pros: "The chair was comfy! It could adjust to ANY position you need."
Cons: "My crab cakes were just mush and my tv remote didn’t work."

Pros: "Lots of space and warm, soft, pillows and blankets."
Cons: "My entertainment remote didn’t work and they ran out of mango juice and the bangus."

Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was very tight. I can’t imagine how the tall people can fit."

Pros: "Clean comfortable plane. Decent leg room. Attentive staff"
Cons: "Manila airport needs upgrades"

Pros: "Flights to Manila and Denpasar were fine."
Cons: "During the long 15hour layover to Bali, lunch and dinner vouchers were provided as long as you stay in the terminal. However, if you decide to leave the terminal, you had to relinquish the vouchers. No access was given to use the Mabuhay lounge and there’s not much options for rest or entertainment at Terminal 2."

Pros: "Broken tv control and head sets x 2 wish I could have used my bose"

Pros: "Why there’s an extra charge if you seat in row 53 below. They put me to row 71."

Pros: "Most ofit"
Cons: "Transfers in manill"

Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."

Pros: "Add veggie food as an option for vegetarians people"
Cons: "To cold and no veggie food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very nice attendant"
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff"

Pros: "Liked the crew - ground and in air folks are always awesome. Pinoy food is always yummy and their J&B Whiskey is always welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing except for the price. Checked again the following week and it was $100 cheaper. Sucks but what can I do???"

Pros: "Had to upgrade to sit at the bulkhead area. Seating areas are too tight."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom smelled very bad."

Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, good selection of movies (economy)"

Pros: "Like the movies, but had a problem with the iPad provided"
Cons: "I did not like the smaller seats, spaces& the tv iPad . The stewardess were not quick assisting the passengers. They did not make sure the toilet supplies are replenished. The food were not good. I am a frequent flyer, the food they served were all the same."

Cons: "Unorganized for seating, they don’t prioritize family with a baby to seat together. 12:35am flight still delayed!"

Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."

Pros: "all the services and the staff are all friendly.none"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Nice crew. Delicious food"

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was relatively efficient terms of service on the plane. Flight attendants were courteous and hospitable, despite the fact that the flight was full. It was also a relatively smooth flight."
Cons: "First of all, it took a very long time to check-in, despite the fact that I had done web check-in the night before. I think a lot of people felt the same way. It took also a very long time before we took off. We were told that it was because of the luggage being loaded but it took almost 2 hours before we finally took off. In the plane, there was a man who was obviously intoxicated and was talking in a very loud voice. I think that someone should have spoken to him about his behavior and proper decorum on the plane. Also, the flight didn't have WiFi working on the plane as well (we were told that it wasn't working) and the seat back was broken. I wish that they had told us that ahead of time to manage expectations. I hope that the next flight that I take on Philippine Airlines will be better. I hope that these comments/suggestions will really be taken into consideration so that they can make their service even better because I would really want to use Philippine Airlines again."

Pros: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."

Pros: "I was really amazed with all the staff working for the airline. They were all very nice and helped so much with my handicapped mother before, during, and after our flight. It was already a long flight and very difficult so the staff definitely helped tremendously. The staff were very accommodating all throughout the flight. Very impressive customer service."
Cons: "We didn't have much leg room for the long 14 hour flight. And the paper towels in the bathroom were a bit thin so it was hard to dry your hands after washing."

Pros: "Was able to use the wifi to access the internet for free for 30 minutes of the flight. Can pay $20 to have it through the entire flight but limited to on 150 MBs. Transfer at MNL for domestic flight was flawless."
Cons: "Seat cushion was very hard. No movies were available on the individual screens. I could not get the myPAL app to work with the wifi and use the entertainment options on it. This was on RP-C7775."

Pros: "Flight from SFO to Manila was fine. On time without delay. Once we landed in Manila, our connecting flight was delayed. We were stuck at Manila international airport and not allowed to leave after coming through immigration! 8 hours in a terrible airport with no proper restaurant or bar! Only snack and coffee shops. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so that we could have at least gone into town."
Cons: "8 hour delay Being stuck at airport unable to leave Lack of a sit down restaurant or bar"

Pros: "The crew was polite and boarding was okay"
Cons: "Being in a cramped space for fourteen hours in opinion is torture, they need to give passengers who travel 12 hours more leg room I am 6'2" and being cramp is not good."

Pros: "The friendly hospitality"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Nonstop route, and entertainment."

Pros: "Nice music while boarding. Good food."
Cons: "We boarded early yet it took 45 minutes to take off. No complaints besides that."

Pros: "Left on time, super friendly staff which is rare in my other options (usa carriers), the only non stop flight without layover available to me, faster than before by an hour, food really pretty good for airline food and lots of it. Good entertainment options for no extra charge. Did not get nickel and dimed over crappy movies and a bag of peanuts like USA based airlines love to do. Will use again as usual."
Cons: "Nothing except business class is so damn expensive. I would love to try it someday."

Cons: "Departure time of 10pm..... didn't leave til after 11pm. and then we are sent to Guam. Nowhere on my ticket said we were to go to Guam. HORRIBLE SERVICE"

Cons: "Traffic on the take off strip made us sit in our seats for a long time, about an hour and I had my infant on my lap who had peed through his pants but I wasn’t allowed to go to the lavatory and change his diaper or clothes! Not just this but I also had a very important meeting to attend in Seoul for business and the flight delay made me late! Unacceptable"

Cons: "WiFi and entertainment"

Pros: "Aircraft is new"
Cons: "Transfer was very bad , have to walk half hour in Chengdu airport to transfer the flight to Sydney"

Cons: "Without any explanation, Air China delayed my flight from Beijing to Hong Kong for 3 hours and ground staff still had an bad attitude toward hundreds of passengers asking questions."

Pros: "seat so so"

Pros: "crews are kind and help."

Cons: "Make the flights on time!!! Cancelles my flight and totally ruined my vacation!!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "For this plane, the seat is very cramp - leg room has shrunk. Entertainment selection is poor, no new movies at all - like watching reruns."

Pros: "I booked thru a search engine more than 3 months before the flight but was not allowed to select my seat. I was seated at the last seat in the middle. The trip was long, more than 12.hrs and being in the aisle would have been comfortable. It is not my 1st time to ride the airline . ."
Cons: "Not being able to select a.seat prior to the trip."

Pros: "Everything for me to reach my destination was simple easy and accessible."
Cons: "Planes are not ment for 6'0 people, its very uncomfortable for sitt8ng down even when reclined to a certain degree. Its difficult"

Pros: "I have requested refund my money but still pending"

Cons: "I had a special meal preference as a vegetarian dish. First meal I got was, rice and steamed Napa cabbages without sauce ( little disappointed); second time, they forgot to serve me the vegetarian meal all together. I got chicken dish which I could not consume... I wish I had a crew who could speak English so that I could communicate about the situation, but I just let go of the issue. I am planning to go fasting on my returned ride."

Cons: "No WiFi, no charging. Food was inedible."

Pros: "At the moment I'm here at Beijing Airport because of their 22hr delay. They promised a hotel, but there was nobody to ask where to go too. People speak poor English. So I just decided to stay and check at the airport hourly hotel just so I could take a shower and sleep.. But it was full and waiting. So I'm here 2am waiting for my 6pm to Manila. This will be my and my last with Air China!! They are not customer and client friendly. This the mosr terrible flight I've been. Never again!"

Pros: "It was my 1st family trip to Korea from LA, USA. I was worried before trip because I have just turned 1 year baby. But the crew were so nice to us especially my baby they give us the best service to us ever. Food was great and they fed baby food too! even I didn't ordered(I didn't know that i had to pre-order.). Our seats were comfy and there was some space for my husband's legs; he is pretty tall. anyways so thankful trip for our family!"

Pros: "The lovely crew."
Cons: "Transferring at Chengdu airport is not a good experience."

Pros: "Very clean and staffs was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Need more movies option."

Pros: "On time low budget very good for The price"

Pros: "Everything fine"

Pros: "我买的机票是商务舱,结果北京到沈阳这段是经济舱"
Cons: "我妈是个不能行走的病人,缺把座位安排到最后面"

Pros: "dealys"
Cons: "delays"

Cons: "When we landed in Beijing, no one mentioned about filling out entry forms. Very frustrating when the line to clear customs was over 1.5 hours long."

Cons: "Jain vegetarian food"

Pros: "Kayak website is not liable towards its customers. Due negligence."
Cons: "The BYOjet agent that is the partner of KAYAK is irresponsible and careless and got lack of customer support."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Good for the price i payed!"

Pros: "Good amount of movies to choose from. Food was decent."
Cons: "The flight was uncomfortably warm. They give you blankets but they weren’t needed. Our luggage was never put on our 2nd flight."

Pros: "No hassle check in and boarding."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Wverything else"

Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."

Pros: "more legroom than usual, and seats reclined more than average, making for a fairly comfortable flight. Entertainment options in English are somewhat limited."
Cons: "i ordered the special vegetarian meal, while my son had the standard meals. The special meal was plain rice with a bit of steamed greens, my son's meal was the same plus a bit of chicken. Not much food for such a long flight, and no snacks are offered, so we were both hungry. (and we are not big eaters) We had planned to purchase food in the airport (LAX) but all the lines were quite long and we ended up not having enough time. Will definitely plan on bringing food and snacks with us on the return flight."

Cons: "Cabin was really dirty, carpet coming apart and stain on the seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My fly was delayed 2 times. First, i flu from lax to beijing, my fly was changed at last minutes so they changed our to another fly to have enough time to transfer in beijing . However, i had to pay 150$ more for the seat because this fly was full. Second, my fly in Beijing was delayed again. this time I waited 6 hours. When i asked them how long this fly delayed? They did not give me any answer, so my family in vietnam was waiting for me 6 hours in the airport. I will never back with air china. I think they delayed the fly on their purpose. They have many choice for time when you book ticket . Bur later they will delay to have full customer from many different fly make all customers in only one fly to save their cost"

Pros: "Overall airline experience was nice. Good food, comfortable seating."
Cons: "At the airport, clerks insisted we check our baggage, and upon collection in Bangkok, there was a note inside informing me that customs had removed 3 valuable batteries from my bag."

Cons: "Almost four hour delay to destination"

Cons: "The video selections had limited appeal to westerners."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Had good seats"
Cons: "T.v. didn't work."

Cons: "Beijing airport was under construction. There was long delay."

Pros: "Serving two meals"
Cons: "Coffee was bad"

Cons: "I got my baggage after 4 days from landing."

Pros: "Only boarding"
Cons: "No drunks like other flights"

Pros: "Short ride over to Phoenix, very nice trip"
