Philippine airlines is the best airline going. Always friendly and accommodating. If they had flights from west coast to east coast I would never use any other airline. It’s always a great experience with PHILIPPINE AIRLINES.
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Pros: "having the access to a direct flight to the Philippines."
Cons: "enforcing rules and regulations too passengers. as a person of purchasing additional leg room, this should be enforced to pay for additional leg room vs just giving that additional space for free. This is the second time I experienced and this has not changed since last year."
Pros: "Crew was very good. The food was better than most."
Cons: "The toilets should be checked for cleanliness more often, and supplies replenished."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process. Everyone rushed in when the gate was opened. No sequential boarding."
Pros: "Great crew. Old plane. Late arrival. Great food."
Cons: "Business class seats are old."
Pros: "Nice crew, direct flight to LAX."
Cons: "Philippines Airlines has two things it could improve on: one is the food, which is probably the worst of any airline I’ve flown on in recent years. But the thing that is most problematic is that it is not a member of any alliance. I live in Manila, but only for a year or two, so would be nice for those miles to be transferable. If PAL didn’t have the only direct flight from Manila to LAX, I would avoid the airline altogether for long international flights."
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Pros: "Left on time. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Food and service. Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival by over 45mins ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food and lack of IFE and WiFi"
Pros: "Despite a shortage of Flight Attendants on the Flight the ones that were working did an AWESOME Job serving the Passengers ."
Cons: "For the sake of the Flight Attendants more Of them to help."
Pros: "Everything but the inflight entertainment. Nothing impressive."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Late, late, PAL is always late. First we were late by two hours; then boarding was delayed by one hour after that; then we sat on the tarmac for two more hours. Literally my dad had almost finished watching his first plane movie before we were able to takeoff. Fortunately our flight wasn't cancelled, but we missed not one but TWO connecting flights because it was so late. Also, MNL is a terrible airport. What is the logic in needing to pass through THREE sets of metal detectors and x-ray machines before boarding?"
Pros: "Checking in took a very long time because we explored every option available to upgrade me to business class which turned out to be non-upgradable. By the time we finished, the staff was concerned that we might not make it to boarding time because my husband has limited mobility due to a back surgery a couple years ago. They suggested using a wheelchair to speed up the immigration and boarding process. We’re frequent travelers but why we never requested a wheelchair, I simply don’t know! But thanks to their wheelchair suggestion, we made the flight just in time."
Cons: "We bought my husband’s business class ticket back in May or so but because we weren’t sure where I was going to be, we couldn’t get me a ticket until a few weeks before our flight. Due to my unpredictable schedule, we opted for an economy ticket, thinking that it would be easy enough to upgrade me to business. We were wrong - my ticket turned out to be non-upgradable, which was ok for me. It was our first time to travel as husband and wife so it would’ve been nice to sit together, but I’m 5’0” and fit in the economy seat just fine anyway. What was NOT ok was when we were boarded and were waiting for the plane to take off, I brought a lunch box of cut fruits to my husband. A flight attendant was introducing herself when I came so I said hi, but she completely ignored me. She even offered to chill the fruit in their fridge, for which I said thanks, but she didn’t even look at me; neither did another attendant who cheerfully offered him magazines. There were only 2 passengers in the business class so my husband suggested I sat next to him, but I declined and went back to my seat, promising to come say hi every once in a while during the 9-hour flight. Fast forward to a couple hours later, I kept my word and came by. The flight attendant was quick in kicking me out saying I didn’t belong to business class so I had to go back to my seat. I did. My husband said to her that I was having period cramps (true) then followed me to my seat and sat with me for a bit until I asked him to go back to his seat so he could be more comfortable as he’s 6’2” and simply was too tall and the economy seats were too painful for his operated-on back. Was I perhaps too short for the flight attendants to notice?!? I had to ask for a toiletries kit 3 times before they finally gave me one just before we landed after all! Obviously, those in the business class are treated like gods; those in the economy are second class citizens."
Pros: "Most everything was very good expierence. Entertainment selection is excellent. Crew was friendly and full of energy. Plane was pristinely clean."
Cons: "I see a comment about letting people board when it wasn't their turn. This did happen a little and it is shameful more of the people that think they can get away with it. Eventually, the ground crew did start yelling and organizing people, which helped correct the situation. I do think that all people should be kicked back to the end of the line for not following the procedure. Food was only okay (Fish in shrimp sauce)."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Pros: "I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in."
Cons: "I am about 6 feet tall and the leg room was terrible. I was thankful that the person in front of me did not recline, other side their head would have been in my face."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."
Pros: "I observed that the crew were doing there very best to help with the passengers and their concerns. I also saw that they were on top with regards to cleanliness especially the lavatories. I also like how they treat each and everyone with respect especially the older people that we are with."
Cons: "PAL - Plane Always Late! it seems that this meaning to the acronym sticks really good with our flag carrier. I was observing and trying to get some information on what is happening or reason for our delayed flight but to no avail. The captain's explanation makes no sense. With a 3 hour delay, I knew and felt that It would not be a great ride because right from the very start it already started wrong. I was already stressed out from the very beginning even though i saw in the cabin crew's effort and super great service towards especially to our older passengers their dedication and passion to serve. I was really looking forward to this flight but I guess this was one of those days that all you could do is close your eyes and stretch your patience. One other bad experience was getting on Terminal 1. Great improvement but it could be still better. Can't connect to Wifi (its asking me my number on the US when I did not sign up for roaming and for sure will not be able to get the code that they will send on my number) Last year was better, just log on and boom! Impressively lightning wifi speed connection. No questions or log ins and you can safely assure and text your relatives waiting patiently outside that you are there waiting. I just wished we went to Terminal 2 instead. But I guessed it will also be the same because everything started on a bad start with that 3hour delay. They were lucky most of the passengers were excited to be home and sleeping!"
Cons: "Those of us in Biz Class had to be on the same bus out to plane on tarmac. No real priority boarding. Would be better to provide transport for BC out to plane first. Only aspect of trip I found unpleasant."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. This particular Philippine Airlines flight (PR113) from Los Angeles to Manila of July 7, 2018 did not have TV monitors, not even a USB port. Yes, they were iPads to hand around but it was not enough for everybody. Yes, we have cellphones but without a USB port, how do we recharge our phones? Sure we have power banks -- but why would we use it up on entertainment when we will definitely need it to communicate once we get to Manila? For a short flight, fine. However, for a long haul flight of 13 hours or so? Have mercy!!!!!"
Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "foods and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"
Pros: "Had to upgrade to sit at the bulkhead area. Seating areas are too tight."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom smelled very bad."
Pros: "Serice and selection of in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Japan is so nice and clean. People were very helpful. Good food."
Cons: "During my Manila 8 hour layover, someone forced tonight unlock my luggage, opened some gifts inside( canned candies) envelope containing money and gifts. At this point while writing this review, im not finish unpacking and will continue to check next day to make sure im not missing anything else."
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: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "You had to download an app to watch the movies. With 4 hours left of my flight, I saw that some people had PAL issued iPads. This would have been helpful to know at the beginning of my flight."
Pros: "Honestly one of the best flights I had compared to my previous flight over from Hong Kong with same airline. Plane was newer with entertainment module with a huge list of movies and shows to choose from. food was the best airplane meal I had ever had. Had no issues during baggage or boarding,"
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that checking in online was impossible because I was booked from another airline (air Canada). I wish they could co-ordinate to make online booking available even though we were booked through another airline just so we had a better choice for our seats."
Cons: "The choice for the movie was horrible !"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing."
Cons: "They choose to serve beef curry on a flight from a Indian minority country. Surprise, 20 of us were stuck with it because that is all that was left... All that is left is beef, is that ok? Like we have a choice. Late as always too."
Pros: "Flight crew services are good"
Pros: "None. Seat was so uncomfortable and the food was not good at all and the service is very poor. This airline is the poorest service I have ever flown with."
Pros: "Excellent customer service from the crew and airport staff. Very nice people."
Cons: "This flight we took was an older plane, no USB ports or entertainment was available. They do offer an app to watch free movies but you have to download it where your phone has good service. They also offer free in flight wifi, but that didn't really work too well for us. Not sure if that has to do with our carrier."
Pros: "On time! Good for Manila"
Cons: "PAL app didn't work. Put in screens!!"
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: "Crew staff were nice and friendly"
Pros: "Timely Good Service Smily Crew"
Pros: "The price is quite competitive. That is my only reason to choose Philippine Airline."
Cons: "In the Manila Airport, once you entered into the waiting area, it would be a hassle to go to the washroom, for you have to go through the security check lineup again to go back to the waiting area."
Cons: "Check in at Kuala was a chaos. The agents were at a lost not knowing how to handle the family in front of me. It took them more than 30 minutes to handle just one family. I think there must be something wrong with the booking system. It took me 45 minutes to complete my check in."
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and courteous!"
Cons: "The leg room of the airline seemed less than other airlines I have flown."
Pros: "Good service on the flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Manila airport is not well maintained - poor bathroom condition in the international terminal."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by more than 1 hour"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the service give by PAL. Good meals, good utensils, and blanket and pillow provided to each passenger as well as current tv shows and movies on the entertainment system for free."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the plane seemed dated and didn't work so that was a bummer. The attendants offered to move me to a another spot, but couldn't due to it being a full flight. Also the plane was two hours delayed leaving."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from the check in, getting the board pass, and getting in the plane. The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "the seats where too narrow when you're in the window side and there was no entertainment like music, video, and etc. They do have an PAL APP but you have to download it prior to the flight which serves no purpose to use the wifi you don't have it."
Pros: "Ground staff is friendly and helpful during baggage check-in. Change of gate is notified via SMS & mail."
Cons: "Air conditioning at departure hall was not working properly. It feels rather humid while waiting for boarding."
Cons: "Worst landing i’ve Ever experienced. But everything else was fine."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Little help from ground staff with finding lost clothing"
Pros: "The flight i booked has 2 segments, both by Air Asia. However, when i arrived in KL, i was forced to exit the terminal, having to go thru immigration/custom, end up paying 2 separate luggage fees, lots of hessle. Since i never received Air Asia booking#, i was not able to check in, etc."
Cons: "I will avoid booking this way and for sure avoid booking Air Asia"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Nothing is included, but you should also know that going in"
Pros: "The crew were pretty quick to help."
Cons: "The seat was moving of its own accord. I should have paid more for a flatbed. I don’t enjoy the music played at the start and upon takeoff. I wanted to sleep but it was interrupted all the time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding with room in overhead bin. Chips and salsa were great"
Cons: "No entertainment or entertainment options on an 8 hour flight. Food choices were too similar."
Pros: "Airport was quick but not because of airline."
Cons: "How is there no WiFi or entertainment on a 8 hour flight? And having to buy water or anything to drink. Will think further about flying them for a longer trip."
Pros: "All set up for reasonably comfortable short haul flight and prices ok at similar to Thai Air"
Cons: "Priced the same, but unlike the wonderful Thai Air (my only other long haul experience) my ticket price and 8hr flight didn't include any food (Thai Air had 2 complimentary meals) and no one told us we could pre order and pay for food, so missed out when it was brought round. They charge to rent blankets and pillows (free on TA) and couldn't even help me with a glass of drinking water other than offering to sell me a bottle but at $10 USD as they didn't have any change (TA provide complimentary bottled water plus comp tea & coffee. Think there needs to be clearer info/advice 're refreshments for customers on long flights like this"
Pros: "Premium flat bed is an old style business class sloping sleeper Affordable, though not cheap"
Cons: "Food is very poor Cannot check bags in until 4 hours before flight. Not helpful when transferring from an earlier flight."
Cons: "Had layovers in Malaysia and ended up being charged $145 extra dollars because of a checked baggage (which was supposed to be included in our ticket already)"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The air steward and stewardess were so noisy throughout the flight. I stood at the last row where it was close to where they sat and toilet. They took non stop and laughed literally loud. can you imagine the other way round - I am chatting loudly in the midnight and they are trying to get some sleep? They just didn't have professional mannerisms and service awareness."
Pros: "Pleasant attitude of crew."
Cons: "Air Asia no tienen el mejor servicio de atención y si quieres algo de comer te cobran el doble que en el aeropuerto."
Cons: "My flight was 2 hours late causing me to lose my connection ticket. This, because your crew did not do a proper pre-flight check and notice the emergency lighting was failing. Poor maintenance leads to tragedy and unneeded lateness. Making the cabin 16 degrees for 8 hours may sell rental blankets, but it makes people sick as well. Shame on you."
Cons: "$165usd for two 20kg (50lbs) bags on a 7hr flight for two passengers is ridiculous! Not being able to get free water on a 7hr flight is crazy! I can under short local flights having all these extra charges but long haul flights like most other carriers shld come With at least 1 free checked bag and at least free water or soft drinks on a flight."
Pros: "On time Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food portion size, taste & quality Seat is little too tight"
Pros: "Landing & leaving the plane."
Cons: "Super budget fit out of the plane, having to pay for anything at all (including water!!!). Appalled and disgusted."
Pros: "The crew on the aircraft were great."
Cons: "The boarding crew need to be trained on streamlining boarding procedures and how they communicate and interact with passengers. Room for improvement"
Pros: "Staff were helpful while checking in."
Cons: "I don't understand how paying for checked bags ahead of time would be priced any differently than doing it at the check in counter, but the difference is exorbitant. It's a cheap airline for a reason and they get their money back by charging you for everything, including water during the flight. It's better to pay a little bit more for a real airline where standard things like carry ons, checked bags, water, and drinks come complimentary, especially for long flights."
Cons: "Not much comfort, no free food, although cheap."
Pros: "The staff were attentive. The service was good and overall was okay"
Pros: "cabin crew great and friendly"
Cons: "Cabin to cold"
Cons: "their marketing indicates better boarding privileges for boarding but was forced to queue as per other passengers"
Cons: "The crews are not doing enough to help with the many kids crying incident."
Pros: "Comfortable Seats in premium economy"
Cons: "No entertainment 11 hours KL to Auckland and no movies!! Should have made up time leaving Coolangatta and still able to land on time in Auckland - people missed connections. Not good enough when they had power to go a little faster but they would rather inconvenience a number of people than spend a little more on fuel to make up time ."
Cons: "Very narrow seat No free water: not ok for a 7hour flight. Old plane with quite used seats. You pay what you get..."
Pros: "Plane is comfortable but"
Cons: "Noisy as there were babies on board making sleep challenging."
Pros: "They take too much time to provide payable services such as selling food and duty free merchandises. Lots of time was also given prior to landing that wake passengers up who's adjusting to the time difference in a overnight flight. Bottom line is most can only have little sleep due to the constant disturbance throughout the overnight flight."
Cons: "They take too much time to provide payable services such as selling food and duty free merchandises. Lots of time was also given prior to landing that wake passengers up who's adjusting to the time difference in a overnight flight. Bottom line is most can only have little sleep due to the constant disturbance throughout the overnight flight."
Cons: "web site booking luggage fee"
Cons: "Nothing but a seat"
Cons: "When i arrived at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)"
Pros: "On board, the crew were attentive, as much you would expect from a low cost carrier. The environment was comfortable and service could not be faulted."
Cons: "My experience in KLIA2 prior to the flight was poor. As we were travelling with an infant, we had to check in at the gate. Signage was unclear and staff lacked training, which was why it took us a while to find the Premium check in line. KLIA2 is its own mess of convoluted processes and a layout that defies logic."
Pros: "But economical and good timings"
Cons: "Very small seats"
Cons: "No food or entertainment for an international flight of 6 hours."
Cons: "No entertainment. For a 7h flight this is a slight disappointment. Food not included. I'd prefer to pay for it upfront when paying for the ticket or have it included in the price than pay for t in the airplane."
Pros: "Nothin to like."
Cons: "No complimentary water or soft drinks provided for an international flight is a bit too much!"
Pros: "The route, and the price."
Cons: "I used them because I was in a pinch. I should have booked a return flight with Scoot instead. It is basically a flying cattle truck. With scoot you can pay for the upgrades you need to make it bearable. Air Asia X, seems to have nothing in this space which given how unpleasant the basic flight is, it would seem like a great way to make more money per traveler."
Pros: "The only thing there is price but with my paggage it's big mistake"
Cons: "Free 25kg paggage"
Pros: "Price was ok"
Cons: "They charge for water! They keep it cold and if you ask for a blanket...they'll rent you one. No snacks...unless you pay. No entertainment on an 8 hour flight. Need I say more. I travel for business and do not recommend Air Asia for the mentioned issues."
Pros: "The food made my daughter sick."
Cons: "After catching the overnight flight from KL to Gold Coast, we were woken to announcement that food would be served (3 hours before landing) I reluctantly looked at the menu as I was still sleepy. But decided on purchasing the "ALL DAY BREAKFAST" only to find they no longer serve the only breakfast item on the menu due to its lack of interest."
Pros: "I got to my destination. Literally the only good thing about this flight."
Pros: "Airfare was reasonable. Crew were good. Check in and boarding were not bad."
Cons: "Food not very good . At back of plane nothing left if you have not prepaid. Seats very uncomfortable. Air conditioning too cold. Price of baggage a bit dear. But you get what you pay for mostly"
Pros: "I arrived to my destination."
Cons: "First off they charged me extra for my luggage so instead of trying to work with me they tripled the price at the gate. Horrible service, kept hitting me with cart or elbow as flight attendant passed by. Huge flight with Zero entertainment options. The seats were so narrow only my daughter would fit into them. Late over an hour. I was paying a discount for a 13 hour layover in KL, did not realize everything else."
Pros: "It's cheap."
Cons: "Forgot to reserve my package and I paid more than round trip ticket price. I'd rather use Korean Air."
Cons: "I had to pay 1000 RM for my luggage, I explained to them that It was a miss understanding but they did not bother to even give me a little discount, I am a student and it was just too much, First of all what kinda Airline doesn't let you take any luggage for free for an International Flight!!! Second I was aware that it wast free but I did not know the total of weight were supposed to be 40 kg, I purchased 25 kg because I thought it was per luggage which that is what usually is, I want it to purchase another 25 kg for my other luggage but it didn't let me do that online so i decided to do than when I get to the airport, No big deal right! Well I had to pay 1000 RM for that, Terrible Airline, Will never fly with them Again"
Cons: "I paid for luggage when booking my ticket but when I went to check in they said I had not. I had to pay a lot to get my bags on board. No help from air Asia, they just wanted my money."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats not so comfortable. Long queue at check in. Food can be better"
Pros: "Worst Airline Ever"
Cons: "Vietjet needs to update their refund policy"
Cons: "We left 1. 5 hours late! The only food on the plane was prepackaged chemical foods and the only vegan option was a porridge they pour water over ($2)."
Cons: "Get more Customer Services training for the better and for the next level of international services provider...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed - be on time"
Cons: "Avoid at all costs. Delayed both ways. On the way out of Danang they would not even tell us what time the flight would be departing despite numerous passengers asking. On the flight, a crew member stepped on my foot with her heel. My foot was NOT in the aisle, she has stepped in to get past a colleague. She didn’t even stop to apologize. Her colleague apologized and said I’ll get you a glass of water. She returned after a good 30 minutes with a paper cup of water. There was no enquiring how I was or if I needed anything. Will NEVER fly them again!"
Pros: "Crew was average, need to brush up on geography. One crew member announced that we have arrived to the city of Quang Nam, instead of province of Quang Nam."
Cons: "Take off on time, not 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Pros: "The food is good. Air crew is nice."
Cons: "Worth for money we paid"
Pros: "Vietjet’s staff are always attractive, smiling, and friendly. I like the double embarking and disembarking process."
Cons: "I hate Vietjet’s restrictive luggage policies. I had to repack everything at the ticket counter to match the 7 kilo restriction and one carryon limit. On every other airline the way I pack is acceptable. Then I was given a window seat with no window. It was in the exit row. Terrible!"
Cons: "Boarding on time instead of delay twice"
Cons: "should be on time"
Cons: "I was charged for a medical device (CPAP) to carry it onboard the plane. Never had to pay before on any flight as FAA permits medical devices for free."
Cons: "Airport reception is inexperience, could provide us the info we need. Luggage charging 2 for 70kg which is retarded. If you pay online or declare online it gives you discount, unfortunately that doesn’t work on visitors. The check innprocuedure was ineffective and waste lots of time"
Pros: "Fast and efficient and low cost budget"
Cons: "Customer service. Not helpful at all. They were more interested in getting rid of us. There was a man in a wheelchair who injured his leg in a bike accident. He needed to get to Vietnam for medical help. They told him they couldn’t accommodate him. They also refused to give helpful. They just left him. Your airline is run by heartless people. I would never recommend Viet jet to my worst enemy"
Cons: "No free water on a 5 hour flight. Poor choice of snacks to purchase. No leg room. Chaotic at boarding time. Expensive for the service"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phuket"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours, then didn't board for another 45 minutes after that. We were given a mediocre coffee or soft drink in a lounge, no food. Basically the afternoon at Patong was wasted because we didn't arrive until after 5pm. Vietjet is renowned for this sloppiness and persistent delays."
Cons: "Delays with no explanation or expected timing"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "It was a quick flight from dalat to hmc. So I didn't expect a lot. But they charged for water and there were no tv's."
Cons: "Baggage policy ridiculous. I was prepared bc I’d heard about the 7g rule but still had me running around almost missing the flight to pay the fee at a different location than the check in desk. The other location had staff on a break. Then no one else at the check in wanted to accept payment so that I could move on to boarding. Staff not friendly about the whole process."
Cons: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Pros: "Plane was clean and boarding was efficient. Good value. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Online booking experience was confusing as I was rerouted to Kiwi. Tried to pay for both bags at time of booking but was told due to a technical issue I had to pay at the airport. When checking in was forced to pay in cash. More of an inconvenience and caught us off guard. Plane was old and seats were very small and uncomfortable."
Cons: "No online check-in. Flight was late. No legroom."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half without any information as to why. Major grievance was baggage policy. My wife and I have been traveling Asia for the last 7+ month and taken 35 flights to 10 different countries. This is the ONLY time we were told we needed to check our bags (which are both soft-sided and weight ~7kg). Apparently our small backpacks also counted toward the carry-on limit, which would have been fine if not for the following two contradictions: this was our THIRD flight with VietJet Air (one from Siem Reap to Hanoi, Hanoi to Da Nang, Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh) and we didn't have to check baggage the first two. We also saw at least half a dozen people get on our flight with either bags larger than ours, or carrying three pieces of luggage. Either enforce all the rules for everyone, every time they fly the airline, or not at all."
Cons: "My flight was from Bangkok to Busan, via Hanoi. I was planning to transfer at Hanoi, but Vietjet did not offer transit service. I had to pass immigration (exit the country), then reenter. Luckily Korean citizens can enter Vietnam without visa; otherwise, I would have lost my luggage. Terrible service."
Pros: "It was exactly what we needed. On time flight with few frills but good price and efficient. No complaints at all. Crew did well keeping control of passengers that kept standing while seatbelt sign was on. Firm but not angry. Good job."
Pros: "The plane got me to my destination"
Cons: "1) I had to check in my bag (which in any other fight I took was a carry on) 2) I booked thru kayak via kiwi and it was impossible to make a change even though I requested the change 1 min after my booking (I called and emailed them several times without success) 3) there was a delay in the gate and we were not kept up to date"
Pros: "Relatively cheap but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "They are super strict with the luggage, and you have to go through multiple steps. Operations are poor. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "I waited 30 minutes in one line just to ask a question about luggage weight. A staff member told me to switch to another line next to me. I asked her three times if she was sure I should change lines. She insisted I move, only to wait in another line for 20 more minutes! There WAS NO ONE WORKING AT THE COUNTER! I found her again and she told me to switch. To another long line next to me and I had enough. I had to yell at her and make it clear that I was not going to wait another minute. I said I am going to the front and I’ll be next. I asked my ONE question about weight. It took 15 seconds and she should have handled it for me from the start."
Cons: "Staff that doesn’t listen and just points to a line when she demonstrated that she speaks some English. Don’t treat foreigners like idiots. They are generally very smart and have a valid question. Learn to LISTEN to your customers. A customer complaint is a gift. It’s up to you what you do with it."
Cons: "No guide telling where to find Vietjet ticket counter for check in. I missed my flight and slept on the floor. No follow up and I had to book with Vietnam Airlines with no refund or voucher. I'll only fly Vietnam Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Nothing too special to say here. One nice thing was that the lady that checked us in let us carry-on our overweight bags."
Cons: "I wish they had in-flight entertainment, but it's not that big of a deal."
Cons: "Attendants gave the first three rows drinks, but didn't give the rest of the passengers anything."
Cons: "I don't like how the lineup was at check in. You go the counter to check in. Then go to another counter to limeuo again to pay for your bags. Then lineup again for checking in. Very frustrating and confusing. Flight was almost three hours delayed and they refused to change to earlier flight. Service was poor and staff spoke very limited English. Will try to avoid this airline in future. Not a great first time experience."
Cons: "Really annoying to have to pay excess luggage fee when starting a long journey, being allowed only 15k and the first thing that happens is that You have to leave Your check in country to go and pay for having 3kg extra. Badly earned money spent all time in line hating the airline for this stupidity - 20 kg's is a very normal allowance - get back to standard!"
Pros: "Airlineseriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours seriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Caroline is wonderful once the plane is able to get into the air"
Cons: "I was on an International flights, 3.5 hours. Their website didn't mention any additional fees for check-in luggage, I didn't expect that as most airlines don't charge extra fees on international routes, how surprised was I when at the check-in counter I was ask to pay $36 for my 10kg backpack. I feel I was scammed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Bus instead of ramp boarding. No food or drinks provided. The carts raced by us and did not stop to ask if we wanted a purchase. No leg room in seats."
Pros: "Reservations were relatively easy to make on line and relatively easy to purchase on-line."
Cons: "Purchasing tickets this way can result in a lot of confusion upon arriving at the Airport. Without any documents that the Check-in Counter can use to process Check-in, the traveller will find out that a visit is required to a separate desk to obtain your reservation number scribbled on a scrap of paper to take back to the Check-in Counter (after waiting on line there again) so that the agent can find your record and proceed with check-in. This two step process is confusing and not immediately obvious to even the seasoned International traveller. Good thing I'm not easily flustered!"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in flight and baggage check in is an issue ."
Pros: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
Pros: "Schedule and price were reasonable."
Cons: "Extremely noisy announcements, much louder than necessary. Poor boarding information. Incorrect gate info and poor messaging."
Pros: "Staff onboard friendly"
Cons: "Flight check very slow"
Cons: "Booked a midday flight directly with VietJet only to find the flight no longer was flying that day. We had been up onto a completely different flight, 4.5 hours later, with no communication whatsoever. We had paid extra for certain seats, And we're told during checkin these were given away. Thankfully they gave us the seats 1 row in front of what we'd booked. They should really tell passengers about flights, as this could have caused a lot of issues if choosing connecting flights. We were lucky to be able to rearrange our pick up."
Pros: "Fluent English, comfortable and ample seat space"
Cons: "2 things: 1) I've traveled dozens of airlines with the same carryon backpack. The ticket agent required me to weigh my bag and since it was greater than 7kg said I'd have to check it. 2) Flight crew was running late which is entirely understandable. BUT rather than let the 200+ passengers know what was happening the gate agents said nothing."
Pros: "Doing its job to fly you on time with good schedule. For less than 1 hour flight that's all you need"
Pros: "We were very pleased with VietJet Air. Check in went smoothly. Our bags arrived quickly after landing. Good start for the next leg of our journey."
