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: "you ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"

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. Why would they put us on a broken plane? I guess our flight was a test for the repairs. We could of sat in the terminal for the time instead of the plane."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful Aircraft ? Great Bad. Awesome awful. All of those. I really was to say nice things as it’s just basics that were bad"

If u just want to get from point a to point b, this is the airline for you"

Cons: "Same shows and movies on different segments of flights. Same shows etc 4 weeks later on return trips, 15 to 11 hours long time. Also limited selection Red wine undrinkable What would stop me flying again next year! Manila Airport!!!! Small cramped smelly. Most food shacks do not take credit card and no atms to get cash, come on this is 2018. Also my wife was unable to get her seats confirmed in Thailand for comection in Manila to Vancouver which meant having to line up in the basement in Manila and then argue that we wanted our seats together for the long haul home."

Pros: "We booked this flight months ago and made plans to meet people. We wanted to arrive early to avoid traffic but since the flight as 3 hours delayed we arrived at 5 and did not get to the hotel that was 20 miles away in 2 hours. 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"

Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."

Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"
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."

Cons: "It was the shortest flight time I've ever had from cebu going back to LA"
Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed 1.5 hours which became 2.5 hours without notice. Had to run through airport to catch flight back to LAX which almost did not happen. Luggage did not make it despite prior assurances. Luggage was finally delivered more than 24 hours later. Employees were without information and only apologetic after much protest. No compensation offered. Writing formal complaint."
Cons: "They only allow 7 kilos of carry ons. My bag is a carry on with every other airline in the world except Philippine Airlines. 7 kilos is crazy."
Pros: "Courteous Staff altogether."
Cons: "Delays should have been posted earlier. Long lay-overs."

We were sent back and fort to transfer desk and immigration then at the booking counter at the departure level. The cancellation was not handled properly and Asiana staff had no clue what to do. For a big airline company like Asiana, we expected more. In the end, we were left to tend to ourselves and staff at the transfer desk were useless. Never experience this with any other airline."
Pros: "The crew, boarding was easy and the flight arrived early. Even the snacks were good and inexpensive"
Cons: "This flight was perfect"
Cons: "Because they over booked our flight and had weight restrictions due to winds, they off boarded everyone’s checked in luggage.

Hours later and still no word on my luggage where abouts."

I am sure even I missed the fhat flight, they able to SELL that opening seat and EARN something. The CEBGO gate agents didn't do anything about it."
Cons: "The cebu pacific airline was not organized. Flight delayed and missed connecting flight because of it."

Pros: "The Crew was very friendly and helpfull"
Cons: "I was disappointed when I was told I must check my carryon bag because it was 2 kilos too heavy and must pay 1000 pesos to check it then watch as other passengers carrying bags much larger and heavier than mine walk on to my flight unmolested. I thought this unfair since the bag in question had travelled with me since Dallas on 3 different planes"

Pros: "It was fast and easy"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no one told us why."
Pros: "The flight pushed through despite the weather."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly and curtious"
Cons: "Checking in seemed long, snacks or meals weren't available unless prearranged at an additional cost....scheduled connecting flight to catarman, very long wait in amundane terminal lacking enough seating....suggesting that both airlines,PAL & Cebu Pacific coordinate flights better to cut down layover time in the inadequate Clark terminal."

Pros: "No thing about this flight"

Cons: "The service at the airports for your company was abysmal to say the least. The fact that I had to pay over $100 for my bag to be checked was absolutely ridiculous. The personnel for Cebu Pacific at the Denspar airport were borderline hostile, racially discriminating and nasty. If you’re airport employees were half as good as the in-flight attendance I would fly with your company again as of right now you couldn’t pay me to get on your airplane."
Pros: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The seats by the window were large which was nice."
Cons: "They charge you for snacks and drinks. Despite the low price I already paid for the ticket and those amenities should be automatically included."
Cons: "Flight was updated with no other options at all. Original flight was cancelled and they booked us on a much later time. Supposedly, we are arriving in incheon at 8pm. With the updated booking, we are arriving at 10pm. On the day of our flight they informed us that ot would be delayed and we’ll arrive at Incheon at 12mn."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, waiting in an overcrowded space with no aircon (and it's a tropical country). They kept on saying to wait for next announcement (but no screens, just a broken voice). Announcement were vague and couldn't understand when the flight was supposed to depart."
