Excellent services! We enjoyed our trip. Till next time. Thank you.
the pre-boarding area in Manila to Vancouver is terrible. Not enough space. I was flying business and the seating that was reserved for this was not monitored therefore no seats available. Upon boarding for business the area was packed with passengers and no separate line for frequent flyers to board therefore we were stuck behind stanchions permitting us to board. We had to crawl or climb over the stanchions in order to board.... WHAT A MESS!! This criticism is not because I was flying as a frequent flyer as there is not this MESS when flying from Vancouver to Manila. Improvements must be made as this sets the impression for the rest of the journey.
Had a delay on flight back to San Francisco but other than that no issue at all.
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: "Good choices like non- Red Meat"
Cons: "Other than the better seating, business class on PAL is like economy on most airlines. Lousy food, half a glass of generic wine. Screen is too far from seated position, the remote didn’t work, and it was a long stretch to use the touch screen. Seats were not that comfortable for sleeping."
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"
Pros: "Nice cree"
Cons: "All perfect"
Cons: "E mail up dates of change of gates or times."
Pros: "None!!!!!!! Because i pay for my seat assignment and they give me the wrong seat and they say no refunds because they cannot allocate the seat assignment that i bought."
Cons: "They have should have a refund policy and they should have hire more profesional when in comes to customer service."
Pros: "The flights were fine. Airplanes clean. Food and service good"
Cons: "Manila airport is chaos. Transferring planes on international flights is horrible. 2 additional security checks and disorganized chaos"
Cons: "I don’t recommend to fly with philippine airlines It will really mess up your schedule. They keep changing and changing their flight schedule Very disappointed."
Pros: "i didnt like when we had to come out of plane and do a transit."
Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."
Cons: "seat not comfortable, tray table hard to pull out, flight delayed 2 hours, flight crew didnt have immigration card (therefore had to wait in immigration line additional 25 min)"
Pros: "The seats are cramped. Need more leg room"
Cons: "It only there is somewhere I could rest my foot, then it would have been an enjoyable flight."
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: "Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse."
Cons: "Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists."
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: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"
Pros: "Yes PAL FA are always excellent and the Pilot Captain n Co Pilot really made us all safe."
Pros: "Currtious attendants."
Cons: "Dis orderly lines. Too many long lines"
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
Cons: "old 777, no storage, not comfortable, entertainment system not working via remote, service so so."
Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."
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"
Cons: "Business lounge ? Ummm totally unacceptable. It’s a PAYG uncomfortable Un stocked unstaffed waste. Food Was extremely basic. If economy fine but business!!! Very poor"
Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"
Cons: "Flight delays several hours. Its a very terrible flight. No apology from airlines company too."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "PAL app is very helpful for tracking feature. You should allow passengers the option to purchase wifi. The food was okay and it was a night flight so most were sleepy to make any noise."
Cons: "Plane scheduled to start boarding by 10:10pm, but announcement of delay didn't air until 10:15p; no real explanation given until boarding started around 11:45pm. The time online should reflect the actual take off time."
Pros: "Great food and free wine. American carriers should learn about service from Phillipines Airlines!"
Cons: "Better entertainment options would be nice, but I needed a nap anyway."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Cons: "I had to pay again for the ticket even when I did my confirmation with time."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, the boarding process was fantastic."
Cons: "The smallest seats of any airline. No entertainment at all. Food is subpar at best. No auto checkin, so had to wait in line even without checked luggage."
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: "Crews were attentive and very helpful. They were all nice and very accommodating. But please add a personal AVOD on your aircrafts. A 10 hour flight is really boring without entertainment system."
Cons: "The portion of the food was very little. And they only serve full meal once on a 10-hour flight. Snack was served 1 hour prior to arrival but was not enough as the passengers were starving already."
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: "On time departure Short wait for checked luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No inflight wifi Sparce terminal, very few food options"
Pros: "the plane landing without feeling it"
Cons: "good flight"
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"
Cons: "Your tardiness and inconsiderate way of doing business. Your irresponsible attitude towards your paying customers."
Pros: "flight, service --great"
Cons: "check in --vry problematic."
Cons: "Don't delay the flight"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with PAL. I had read the reviews mostly good, some not so good but I decided to do it because I was going to meet my fiancee. Flew from LA to Manila and back. The flights took off late (which I later found out is called Filipino time LOL). The crew was AWESOME, the only problem was on the return flight I had some trouble getting a stewardess but to be fair EVERYBODY was hitting the bells to get service. The food was good and I liked the choices. I would DEFINITELY fly PAL again!!!!!"
Cons: "Lousy plane business class. Seats recline 20 degrees For entertainment. One has to download app Before flight"
Pros: "flight update via email"
Cons: "late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly"
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: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."
Rescheduled my flights without asking me. And I am losing money on reservation
I asked for more food as i was too hungry or I probably missed MAS onboard food. Both flight-attendants fulfilled my request by giving me both menus - the Nasi Lemak & the chicken noodles. Both tasted very nice. Thanks Mas. I think asked for skyjuice 5x & tomato juice twice

Cons: "Avoid Malaysian airlines and avoid KUL airport. What a mess of a company ..."
Cons: "Did not departure on time"
Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"

Cons: "Whilst the main meal was ok, as far as breakfast on the LHR to KUL sector was concerned, by the time I was served my preference was no longer available. The crew member who served me made no attempt to see if another colleague had my preference available."
Cons: "He is cheating telling normal taxi cant for two adualt and three chalidren to buy taket for double price for min bus or van , that person in charge is laieing and not respecting i hope to take acsing because they are the face of malysia visitor and i think no boday will except cheating even for one ringet .

Pros: "The regular plane was swapped out for the A380"
Pros: "On time. Good food Good flight attendant service"
Cons: "Delayed of baggage claims for 1 hour, flight retimed/delayed for more than 1hour"
Pros: "Avoiding the huge queues (lines) in Asian airports is worth gold. Bz class travel on the KUL-BKK sector on Malaysian isn’t great but avoiding the queues at both ends makes it all worth it"
Cons: "Their app is useless. Not user friendly and always down ! Their staff can't even give proper directions on what need to be done in terms of getting upgrades ! Such a shame how it this airlines is getting from bad to worst. They use to be great and my number one choice , but now they are just a disappointment.

Pros: "On time departure system works"
Pros: "Prompt flight and service was good."
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
Pros: "Direct Flight"
Cons: "Food was absolutely disgusting. The mash potato and chicken was completely melt into liquid. The air con continually leaking throughout the journey."
