My diabetes meal was the same on my earlier flight from Hyderabad to Singapore. The breast of chicken was 3-4 oz piece. It was difficult to cut it on the smaller pieces in the tray. Prefer pre-portioned chicken breast cubes. No need to make it a chore. I could manage to handle, but be considerate to seniors who might have limited mobility etc.
Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Early arrival. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "I had to ask 3 times for an arrival card from the crew. Bread was dry. There should have been a breakfast served prior to landing, but no food service after 1 a.m. though flight arrived at 7:40 a.m. Timing of meals was not convenient for me at all. They wake you up at 1 a.m. for your main dinner. I would have preferred to sleep until 5 a.m. then have a good breakfast. The amenity kit in Business Class was substandard when compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Crew were amazing and great entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"

Cons: "THE WEBSITE LISTS PRICES IN SINGAPORE DOLLARS AND IT IS ONLY IN THE FINAL STAGES OF A BOOKING IS ONE TOLD WHAT THE US $ PRICE IS. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. WHEN YOU CALL SINGAPORE AIRLINES THERE ARE VERY LONG WAIT TIMES."
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours. But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"
Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."

Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."
Pros: "Service and Operation"
Cons: "The plane ... its old, in need of a new interior as things are falling off and dirty ... Flew business class and although the service makes up for the old aircraft, i think SQ can do so much better !!!"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "More food option"
Cons: "There was absolutely no wifi even though it was advertised as a flight with wifi. Would not have minded if it was a short flight, however, flying from Asia to North America is always a long flight."
Pros: "The price was right. We arrived on time."
Cons: "On a 17 hour flight, people need water, and getting that from the flight crew wasn't easy. They were rushed, unpleasant, and the food was worse than I've seen on a plane in years. The entertainment system too, was very old and lacking compared to newer systems."
Cons: "Flight delays is never appreciated."

Cons: "Food is the worst out of many other airlines"

Cons: "Eva’s Air is cheap with drinks, whether water or wine. About a Dixie cup of each for a meal."
Pros: "They setup rows in the waiting area with a Zone number for each row. That way you can get a set in the row that is for your boarding zeom"
Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."

Cons: "Air stewardess should smile more. More movies in the in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The flight has too much turbulences."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "The seats,movies and food"
Cons: "the food was a shame"
Pros: "Boarding is systematic. The zone parking and constant reminders that it is not boarding time yet alert and reminds passengers to follow directions for an efficient boarding. Love the hello kitty atmosphere on flight ORD to TPE."
Cons: "The green uniform. It reminds me of USA soldiers uniform. Stewardess does a nice job, but they should smile more, especially in a long flight."
Cons: "One crew member was so rude to me, Then my husband tried to lodge a complaint at the service desk and the manager was rude to him about it. Food is gross. Crew didn’t offer enough drinks or water for the length of flight. Economy seats are tiny and cramped."
Cons: "Cold personality of flight attendants"
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "TPE-SEA had a much better crew and plane that was much newer and had good entertainment sets"
Cons: "The crew for the SEA-TPE were an unhappy bunch. If you did not speak mandrian to them, they simply ignored you. They were rude and made me feel like I was a second class passenger TPE-KUL KUL-TPE had no entertainment. Just the screen to share in the front of the plane. I wish I knew in advance."
Pros: "The service is good!!!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The man next to me took up a lot of room with his arms."
Pros: "Checking and in-flight staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "The flight delay which caused passengers to rush for the connecting flight to the US in less than 40 minutes. Barely made it. Unnecessary stress for fear the checked-in luggage did not make the connection."
Pros: "Rude passengers refusing to raise recline chairs"
Cons: "Food was not of quality"
Pros: "helpful staff at check in in jfk airport. flights were not too crowded. only one stop to final destination."

Cons: "Too long. No ones fault."
Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"
Pros: "the food on eva was better than delta and united--definitely edible unlike the others. the stewardesses are a little bit stingy with the wine. they give such tiny tiny portions-like 2 ounces at a time--they said i might get drunk. no one can get drunk with what they give. the stewardesses are polite enough. the entertainment was pretty good--good choice of movies. like all other airlines, the seats are too squished together. more room would have been appreciated."
Cons: "i answered this already"
Cons: "Food made me sick for 5 days. Ruined my first week in Philippines, cost so much money because I couldn't leave my hotel."
Pros: "Great flight! The seats were comfortable and spacious. The crew was friendly and informative and the bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "We ordered the vegetarian meal. And the quality of the meal was terrible. There was a hair in my food as well. I fell sick during the 2nd leg of the flight after eating this food."
Pros: "The entertainment options were really nice. The airfare I felt was good value for the money."
Cons: "This was on the flight from Taipei to Chicago: The woman next to me had an injured foot which she rested on the tray table. She should have been seated where there was an empty seat next to her as there were seats available and it would presumably have been more comfortable. It turned out the outlet for plugging in the headphones for my seat was broken so I moved to an empty seat. I would not have wanted to look at her foot (no sock on) throughout the flight plus she was constantly fidgeting and poking me with her arm Ashe adjusted her foot while I was seated next to her. Unpleasant."
Cons: "Looks like the KUL to TPE crews were not happy about their job or dont want to service folks. Hope EVA can retrain them."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was cold."
Pros: "organization ans timely process on the check in counter on forward"
Cons: "the gate announcements not very clear."
Pros: "The ground steward in LAX attended to our needs. He was cheerful and made us feel welcome."

Cons: "Washroom could’ve been bigger"
Pros: "Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result."
Cons: "Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride."
Pros: "The seat supper comfort and landing very smooth"
Pros: "Crew was very accomedating and friendly"
Cons: "Good news they have a MENU for the people"
Cons: "Couldn’t fault anything"
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Pros: "The flight was fine. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to recline my seat because the person behind me did not want me to recline."
Pros: "Quite comfortable, met my expectations and I rested. On board team were friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Smell was so bad during flight"
Pros: "Living in novotel while staying in Taipei"
Cons: "stuck in Taipei"
Pros: "The boarding by zones is a great way to do it and they implemented it efficiently. The crew were outstanding - pleasant, smiley and courteous and made me feel welcomed. Meals were delicious."
Cons: "A bit cramped and not quite enough toilets in economy class. Always a long queue for the toilet."
Pros: "Totally filled to capacity. Am 6 ft guy broad shoulders squeezed next to another guy bigger than me. Totally cramped in middle seat. Holiday season travel. I should know better. Most challenging flight in years."
Cons: "Totally cramped in."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
Pros: "Entertainment device is updated and good"
Cons: "Staff at SFO was a little bit loud and mean when they asked the customers to line up—like in zone 1/2 boarding process."
Pros: "Warm service from check-in to destination. Counter staff arranged, without hesitation, upon my casual asking if could change to window seating and she did it with a smile (though I've web-checked in already). Service on flight was heart-warming too!"
Pros: "Prompt and customer-oriented service. Thank you to counter staff for arranging the seat change. I thought I had confirmed the seating during web-checkin but was told that there was no history of confirming the seats in the system."
Cons: "A change of snack for to and fro journey would be good."
Cons: "the food to much asian"
Cons: "Everything was a joke to a West standard"

Cons: "Lack of movie selection"
Pros: "Over all a good flight experience. Would use them again"
Pros: "Everything! Well organized boarding procedure (but it helps when the other passengers are well mannered, unlike flying in the USA) and started boarding EXACTLY the time they stated on the notice boards. Friendly crew and very helpful! Tasty meal albeit a bit lean on offerings on the tray."
Cons: "Food selection could better. Also hotter (warmed Or cooked more)"
Pros: "Everything went fine"
Cons: "None. Business is good!"
Pros: "my family like the food and A lot of choice for movies, will flight again , way to go China Airlines"
Pros: "Better couch legroom than any of the US carries I have flown overseas. Newer plane and attentive flight crew. There was a decent movie and entertainment selection and the meals were reasonably good. Crew was very attentive to keeping the bathrooms clean, which on a long flight is a very nice. Checking staff in Los Angeles to insuring the comfort of a taller customer was excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays, but they where at the gate to insure I made my connection."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."
Cons: "The first meal was horrible. Things improved somewhat after that but it made a lasting impression."
Cons: "Warm wash cloth must not be eliminated especially for long flights. I was not able to charge my phone since the outlet was non-functional. The flight experience wasn't that bad with the budget price of the ticket. Over-all it was okay."
Cons: "Originating flight in Manila to Taipei to connect to our SFO flight was cancelled late in Manila due to 'technical' issues (waiting in terminal, 4 hours past scheduled departure, which meant missing our connection to SFO), and the ensuing parade through having to stay in Manila overnight (on CA's dime, plus food), then rushed back to the airport the following morning (very short notice), then to have to wait again as CA figured out how to get a previously scheduled flight into the flight plan management systems, and obviously without a proper method to coordinate this sort of thing - ultimately all of this lack of 'control' over their situation, lead to a feeling that China Airlines does not know how to contend with interruptions, or how to make their customers feel informed so that they may be more understanding. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers). Bad image CA, bad image."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient with great customer service"
Cons: "Food was awful. Would bring my own food on future flights"

Cons: "I would have liked to have more vegetarian and vegan food options on board the aircraft."

Cons: "It was way too hot on the flight and the smell was very unpleasant. The seats were too close together."

Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."

Pros: "Reasonable price and not complicated"
Cons: "Cabin atmosphere, our seated very hot because air conditioning wasn't cold from Osaka until Hanoi even we have informed few staffs but nothing change."

Cons: "Not enough space in business class. Seats are terrible and ergonomically uncomfortable. Not enough choices in papers or entertainment."

Pros: "The plane and food were good"
Cons: "Took a very long time to get checked bags"
Pros: "For flying overseas the airplane was old and uncomfortable. I've flown overseas before and the seats have been a lot more comfy. The crew was fantastic and the food just crappy like any plane food."
Cons: "The seats and the food."
Cons: "There was no luggage requirment on my flight plan. I thought that it was 32 kg since it was international flight. At the counter I wad told I am over 20 kg allowed on that flight since this fligh was code shared with Vietnam Airlines but operated by Cambodia Angkor Airlines. After manager intervention my suitcase was accepted. I would appreciate clear communication about allowed suitcade weight on code shared flights."
Pros: "I had an over all position experience flying with Vietnam Airlines."
Cons: "I didn't like the extremely late boarding process, as I was worried I'd miss my connection flight."
Pros: "Great staff, clean plane and modern"
Cons: "It was very hot!!! No air circulation at all. Food was bland. No snacks given out"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The seats were very close together and there was not much room to use the tray table. I could barely fit my laptop on it open with the seat tilted."
Cons: "The flight was overweight so they didn't put my checked bag on the flight along with about 50 other bags. I didn't find out until I went to pick up my bag. I still haven't received it and they should be delivering it today."
Pros: "The Air France business lounge that Vietnam Airlines use in CDG Airport was excellent. Lots of space a good selection of food. The airline staff where all wonderful and food on the plane was delicious. I like the sleeping pods. Very private and comfortable."
Cons: "I would like a few more recent English movie choices."
Pros: "Food was great, comfortable flight, no issues whatsoever. One of the best airlines I’ve flown with"
Pros: "Passengers and crew were all nice and accommodating. Food was great!"
Cons: "Temperature was very cold 21C but perhaps that is to inhibit spread of germs."
Cons: "Many changes and mistakes"
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."
Cons: "Better aircraft"
Pros: "crew is ok, planes are good, food selection is somewhat ok, I guess it depends on a flight."
Cons: "manilla airport is awful and there is nothing that can improve that..."
Cons: "On time and very Nice cabincrew"
Pros: "crews were amazing and friendly."
Cons: "i couldn't think of anything at this time."
Cons: "Food on time"
Pros: "Food & drinks"
Cons: "more sauce in food selection."
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Delayed flight. No onboard wifi and seatbiack/streaming IFE. Poor snack quality."
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."
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: "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: "great flight great service"
Pros: "Everything but the inflight entertainment. Nothing impressive."
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: "Non-stop flight."
Cons: "About four hours before boarding, the gate assignment was changed from a comfortable gate with plenty of seats for passengers to another gate that was already occupied by another PAL flight that has not even boarded yet. So there were no place to sit down. Food can be so much better, especially the dessert. Crew didn't come across as happy with their job. When I asked for soda water, the serving stewardess didn't tell me that she'll give it later; she just proceeded to push the food cart, so I thought she didn't hear me since she didn't acknowledge my request. The bathroom was filthy!"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
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."
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Pros: "Take off and landing on time."
Cons: "Very cramped...par for the course."
Cons: "The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "the crew was awesome."
Cons: "the boeing 777 plane business class seats should reconfigure to the new version"
Pros: "nothing to really like. the crew and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "kind of hard to believe my other flight through PAL was the best I've taken. This must have been an older plane or something. No entertainment minimal leg room. Must have just been luck of the draw"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. Didn't realize there was in flight entertainment until after the flight was over."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
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: "Great service, comfortable aircraft, and pleasant staff. Would use them again!"
Cons: "Wish they would have warned us that we would be on lock down in the terminal at Manila when we went through security early. Cause we had to wait by the gate for 6 hours in a terminal that didn't have much else. Upstairs of Terminal 2 had no accommodations or restaurants/cafes. Just food stands. Still not bad though, would have been a nice warning though."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in economy for anyone over 5 foot ten inches."
Pros: "Clean new planes, great service!"
Pros: "flight, service --great"
Cons: "check in --vry problematic."
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: "flight update via email"
Cons: "late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly"
Pros: "spacious seats, IFE and great meals"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "No announcement for boarding and flight delayed."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Turbulent flight. Small washrooms."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond and made sure I had a meal that I could eat despite not having ordered ahead. Everyone was friendly and things ran very smoothly."
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."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without any communication for the reason. Overall delay was less than one hour but it is frustrating"
