Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Very tiny seats, tough for a westerner."
Cons: "No entertainment, no place to plug in devices, extremely uncomfortable. The worst part was the Dixie cup of water served. Really?!? A bottle or larger cup would have broke the bank? Was so thirsty by the time we landed even though I had the attendants bring me water three times."

Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Got upgraded to first class, there wasn’t any TVs but it was only an hour long flight. Staff was also really nice"

Pros: "Good value for the money. Flight crew was young and exuberant, very willing to make the passengers journey as comfy as possible. Surprised an inflight meal and two checked bags were included in my fare. Other international carriers would have charged extra! Hope this Korean Air economy carrier sticks around. Hope to fly them again!"

The level of service is superior to most airlines we've used."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

They did allow her access to a short cut through the terminals; however she had collapsed, broke her watch, cover to the cell phone, injured both legs and right arm. She kept yelling for help and no one arrived, she managed while in intense pain to get up make her flight. When she arrived in Bangkok she went immediately to the Emergency Room and received treatment.

Cons: "Nothing was good about the flight. Sub standard . Transfer was not good either."

This is even more frustrating when the flight is delayed and you have 1 hour of international flight transiting. Food is cool and tasteless. I won't fly with Jin air ever again. I would say that after all these years of at least 70000 miles of air traveling. This is the WORSE of my experience."

Cons: "No food. Major delay without announcement"
Cons: "Cebu Pacific has to be the worst airline I have ever flown with. Boarding alone was so disorganized. People were trampling each other. The flight times changed twice. I lost over $200.00 with no refund. Said I could get credit. Yeah, like I would ever fly with them, again."

Pros: "Nothing much. The flight crew were ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Boarding and departure lounge area was utter chaos because the Cebu Pacific staff were not clear about which flight waa boarding. The plane was horribly cramped. Extra seat rows had been installed to get more seating on the plane. That might be ok for the average 5'4" Filipino, but at 6'1", I literally could not fit my knees behind the seat in front of me. As a result I had to twist my legs into an uncomfortable position for 2 hours. Not fun."
Pros: "Friendly and ready to help crew"
Cons: "No form entertainment whatsoever. Deleted for about 2 hours"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was on time."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Boarding was organized if there is such a thing in the philippines, but at least they tried. Iloilo airport is very nice and allows more room than manila fiasco. The flight for once left early and arrived early and low and behold we had a jetway and no bus!! Luggage was off in record time"
Cons: "No recline on seats and cramming too many in to such narrow rows..its worse than a new york city bus in the 70s."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Nothing about lastminute.com"
Cons: "Lastminute.com rebooked my outbound flight two dat past the original booked date then left the return flight the same which meant the return was before the outgoing. Then to make it worse they tried to charge me additional 80 pounds to change the return ticket."

Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"
Cons: "Too cold in the aircrat"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Lavatory was spacious. Airplane was clean."
Cons: "I know that the ground crew can’t control passengers from lining up even if it’s not their turn yet but there should be enough space for families with small kids and senior citizens to go up to the front to board ahead."
Cons: "I didn't like everything"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "More than 1 hr. delayed flyt"
Pros: "The flight attendants on the plane were very good very sweet very attentive. I also enjoyed the fact that we got a free meal without a ticket."
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."
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: "Cebu pacific is one of airlines who prescribe to a pay as you go additude. Be prepared to pay for everything after you pay for your ticket 7kg carry on max limits pay for the food you may or may not eat, and if you get cold easily bring warm clothes. No joke this was the coldest airplane I have ever been on in my 15 years of travel, so cold in fact that upon taking off you can hear the ice crystals breaking loose and traveling through the air system. I am going to say that the plane was in good condition and the flight attendants and pilot crew seem to be well trained as well as very polite."

Cons: "I’ve been to over 15 airports in the last month and Since when does the airport have a terminal fee of $17 And they made us check in our bag for $60 per person, I’ve been on many budget airlines before and they never made us do this, never flying with AirAsia again."
Pros: "Value for money"

Pros: "Actual flight wasn’t bad."
Cons: "I spent 2 hours on the baggage drop queue even though there weren’t that many people in front of me. Airline shouldn’t offer web check-in if they’re going to take ages interviewing each passenger. Gate changed three times so it was chaos for all the flights involved. Plane left an hour 15 after scheduled take-off. No apology extended."
Pros: "Food was tasty, check-in was simple, flight arrived on time."

Pros: "Flight time Cost"
Cons: "They don’t fly from Clark to KL Seat pitch excruciating for most average height people Particularly on a four hour flight Everything is penny pinched Crew are verging on brusque Some very loud music on boarding with some American rap music, hardly appropriate on a south east Asia airline"

Cons: "not bad"
Pros: "Crew went out of the way to assist us after a terrible checkin experiance"

Pros: "Pontualidade, atendimento e funcionalidade em uma empresa Low cost"
Cons: "Espaco entre poltronas pequeno e avião parecia velho"
Pros: "excellent staff"
Cons: "We had fallen asleep right before food service, and were not even attempted to be served lunch,, I woke up soon after to see everyone else eating, yet the attendents were of course busy, and simply passed us, In us carriers, the attendent would pay attention and ask us a few minutes later if we wanted food. This could have been improved, as I didnt feel comfortable asking, there were 2 of us, not just one so we went hungry"
Cons: "Seats are very poor. Leg room very poor. I am average size and my knees were touching the front seat. They did not provide even a glass of water that you had to buy. You had to buy food and soft drinks and even then the quality of food was poor. A Terrible airline."
Pros: "It was just a one hour flight but no complimentary dribks seved."
Cons: "Seating leg room service delays customer service"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My seat was broken and would go back if I leaned on it too hard. We were delayed for so long and sat on the runway (perhaps the airports fault). There was no overhead room for our carry-on luggage and no one was very helpful about it. Other passengers around us had the same issue with the carry-on luggage."
