They had decent leg room and great range of motion. The entertainment center was simple but sleek. I loved the extensive movie library. Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed but the crew did keep us updated and was systematic in boarding"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."

Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."

Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."
Cons: "flight delayed as usual"
Cons: "delayed as usual"
Cons: "My seat would not recline."
Pros: "the flight itself was fine. the crew is professional"

Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"
Cons: "90 minutes delayed"
Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."
Pros: "Airport checkin crew sucked, in-flight crew were fantastic!!"
Cons: "They made me check my carry on for a flight that was MAYBE 50% full... ANd If the ground handlers were actually awake when we landed in Vancouver... took 43 minutes for the first 5 bags to come out.... and another 7 minutes before anymore... WTAF!??"
Pros: "Food and drink good and staff served any time when asked no payment needed for alcoholic drinks"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"

Pros: "Staff was welcoming, everything was well organised, food was good. Journey was comforatable ."
Cons: "More choices foe veg meals"
Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."
Pros: "Everything was great !"
Cons: "Food was average"
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."
Pros: "Little more leg room! A good flight overall"
Cons: "Flying time too long!"
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Very quiet (A350), good crew who helped direct those unused to flying to the correct class. Good seat comfort and food, very good good entertainment. Toilets were cleaned periodically during the flight."
Cons: "Rather a wait for the toilets at times - not the most efficient layout and not that close to Premium Economy seating."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."
Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."
Pros: "Easy boarding, good entertainment. Great crew."
Cons: "Long flight to easy to complain about something. But really no problems here"
Cons: "Flight delay."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, efficient and attentive."

Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "The stewardesses were super helpful, quick to respond and the pilot even gave regular updates."
Cons: "Bumpy flight and the crew didn't really come around to check on what the passengers needed aka water etc."
Cons: ". I was shocked to see social distancing was not implemented with no seats apart and I was in the middle of four seats. If the journey is as important as the destination, then it already failed the minute I was seated in a very intimate setting alongside strangers and seeing the economy class fully booked. The airline defended this by saying they have special economy seats but I complained that this is not equitable since the seats are limited and not everyone could afford an upgrade. Even if they could, the passengers would still be seated side by side and the total number of passengers aboard a tight and enclosed space or load factor is still very high. The airline’s policy was so inconsistent with the very rigid rules of the different government agencies upon disembarkation."
Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"
Cons: "Adding cookies and drinks to relieve hunger or low blood sugar of passengers."
Pros: "The crew was extra friendly. The seat was spacious. Good leg room."
Cons: "Main meal , too much rice for a westerner. Quality could improve a bit. Bread roll was below average."
Pros: "you ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "Best in flight entertainment for any airline I've used"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "Food & drinks"
Cons: "more sauce in food selection."

Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."
Pros: "Crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Need reclining seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time. No stop over, because it is a direct flight."
Cons: "The choice on the menu is not available, the bread was not given to us, because they run out, no apple juice because it run out too. Drinking water served, it is warm.They should offer some ice cubes or ask the passengers if they want ice... Other airlines, serves different juices through out the flight. Crew not communicating at all. Doesn't say anything or serve you with a smile."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."
Cons: "Check in at NAIA very slow with little information available, could not check in online 3 flights were boarding, same gate same 1 hour time period, confusing when Bangkok flight was boarding, boarding was also stopped due to a flight arrival Child in seat behind kicking/shaking my seat - no help"
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours."
Pros: "the airline I've heard is habitualy late. It was on this flight."
Cons: "Food was barely passable and coffee tasted like toasted wood."
Cons: "Seats did not recline very much. Hard. Food was very plain and starchy."
Pros: "Theno del crew were polite and cheerful, efficient in their work. Seats are okay, more legroom would be better."
Cons: "no delays on schedules."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Security at manila airport is totally over the top. I am 100% for security but 5 checks!!!!"
Pros: "Truly friendly, service minded and happy cabin crew."
Cons: "A bit messy for the boarding but partly as unruly passengers"
Pros: "onboard service was good"
Cons: "17 hour delay"
Pros: "Nice seats in business, good food, nice crew."
Cons: "Door closed ten minutes ahead of schedule yet had to wait on stand nearly half an hour to push back due to airport congestion. Arrived in HKG late at a remote stand and had to use stairs and be bussed to the terminal. I missed the last HKIA Express train to HK"
Pros: "Fantastic onboard product in Business Class. Superb seating with all direct aisle access, excellent meals and friendly F/A's."
Cons: "I was a little concerned at the lax approach to securing the cabin for take off and landing the F/A's had. The Philippine Airlines lounge is an embarrassment for an airlines hub airport."
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
Pros: "Aircraft spacious seats comfortable Crew very friendly and welcoming good movie selection"
Cons: "Cues at T2 massive to go through immigration zig zag around terminal Seats don’t adjust well and little leg room when flat. Food uninspiring. Tv fixed lots of reflections. Toilets small."
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor. No relatively new films . All TV programs were American. The Wi-Fi was slow at best . The crew tried hard but the attention to detail was lacking"
Pros: "Birding was great. Punctual flight."
Cons: "My entertainment screen broke. It took the crew 7 hours to replace it. A crew member said they would sort it, bit nothing for 6.5 hours There appeared be confusing within the crew members about what food I ordered."
Pros: "On time, very good service, good food & wine and very comfortable. Plenty of space around the business class seat and easy access to and from seat. Large screen tv."
Cons: "Slightly limited entertainment . Mabuhay lounge at Manila's average."
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."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."
Pros: "No direct contact details to change flight"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun."
Pros: "free wifi."
Pros: "Great service and so much leg room"
Cons: "Flight delays several hours. Its a very terrible flight. No apology from airlines company too."
Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."
Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "I was seated in row 38 and our flight attendant was very attentive, helpful and always smiling. I think she was the the best flight attendant that I had for a long time, she’s always ready to help to needy passengers and always has a smile on her face."
Pros: "foods and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "Staff attended well , flight on time, well organised"
Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."
Pros: "The staff were courteous is very helpful ,the food was okay. In flight comforts were provided such as blacked , eye mask etc. iPads were provided as there was no built in tvs on the plane which provided a good inlight entertainment system. Overall this was a good experience as value for money as the price was cheaper than many other direct long haul flights"
Cons: "The plane it’s self was quite old and tired - with no TVs however iPads were provided which was not a huge difference. There was not a good selection of beverages on this flight -most had ran out prior."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "REad above"
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"
Cons: "More space on the flight"
Pros: "That the flight wasn't any longer than it was"
Cons: "A bit hot n stuffy"
Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"
Pros: "We were early. We sat together"
Cons: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"
Cons: "So it was annoying that the seat that was assigned to me..airline assigned that seat to someone else because that person asked for it. And nobody bothered to ask me( no email or call or anything) even though there were lot of empty seats. But the passenger was polite he moved to his original seat."
Cons: "Going and coming back was delayed"
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."
Pros: "bad movie choices"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Pros: "Flight was short and got to gate on time"
Cons: "sat for about 20 min. before takeoff with no info"
Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."

Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"

Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."
Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."
Pros: "My seat"
Pros: "Dated entertainment on the inside televisions and some of the headphones and movies were hard to understand because of the audio quality. But the bottom line was I couldn’t find a cheaper flight for my trip and overall I look for savings and my airfare."
Cons: "Customer service from the flight crew was pretty dry, my biggest complaint though was that there was very much stagnant air quality and no ventilation at HC location like I am normally a custom on most other planes."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but the ground crew was amazing I was really worried but China Eastern's ticket people were very professional! Highly recommend."
Cons: "Layover was too long. The airline changed the flight schedules"
Cons: "So hot on the plane and cramped."
Pros: "New planes. Spotlessly clean. Hard working helpful staff. Good boarding. Adequate legroom by modern standards. Food typical of economy these days. OK. But really good staff."

Cons: "plane parked too far from main terminal. long bus ride delays arrival time."
Pros: "the crew"
Pros: "Tickets were super cheap."

Pros: "Plane was okay/good. Crew was good."
Pros: "Good food. Wine was excellent. Good service."
Cons: "There were issues with the headset provided. It did not connect properly therefore sound was very poor. The programs system was not operating the first hour of the flight."

Pros: "Crew still managed to provide me the veg meal, even though they didn't get the request."
Cons: "Type of food I chose on the website was not ordered with the airlines."
Cons: "It’s no fault of crew that the flight is difficult due to length of time from Pudong to Vancouver! But the seats are too close for such a long flight and my tv only had one ear plug working (yes, we changed plugs to try to get it to work, but because the plug-in jack on the tv itself was broken, it just wasn’t able to be fixed during my flight), and the tv is the only thing that makes the flight remotely bearable!!"
Cons: "The crew was not very attentive compared to other times I have flown business class. Not very solicitous in terms of offering water regularly, etc. Also, surprisingly little food offered over a 14 hour flight from Shanghai to New York. A reasonable dinner at midnight, shortly after takeoff, then nothing till almost 12 hours later, and then not the hearty breakfast one would expect after that much time and on business class but a very small snack. Not very satisfying."
Pros: "We were bussed to the far end of the tarmac to board which seems normal for this airline out of Nanjing. The step stairs would be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Seats are comfortable enough and the inflight entertainment has several options for current movies, tv, audio or games. Mine worked on the flight home but not the outbound flight. Meals were plentiful but not to my liking, catered to the majority of the travellers which is reasonable. There were some vegetarian meals available to those that requested previously. They came around many times with beverage service and water as well. Language is a bit of a barrier but if you are patient you can figure it out. Very happy overall with the experience we had at the price we paid."
Cons: "Food options were limited. Boarding was a long process by bus out to the tarmac."
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Food very unappetising. Poor movie selection"
Pros: "Loads of space. Super crew,"

Cons: "my two year old had a fever and the crew didn’t help us any way to ease our misery. Even asking for water was too much for them"

Pros: "Didn’t provide convenience to parents with baby/toddler to checkin and boarding."
Cons: "Flight attendants are excellent, polite, warm, professional."
Pros: "It was cheap but I would not do it again"
Cons: "I made friends with another passenger who when texting his number introduced himself as ‘XYZ, flight from hell’. That pretty much sums it up but here’s a laundry list of issues I faced on the trip 1. They landed us in a different airport in China and did not inform us on how to get to the other airport (PVG). After several failed attempts of catching a taxi that accepts Visa or US dollars, we finally got a bus that ferried us 2. They also did not automatically transfer the luggage, so I had to carry my two checked in bags to the other one and then stand in a 45 min queue to get them checked in again 3. Unhelpful ground staff 4. Delayed second flight. After a shitty eight hour long layover, we got another 2 5. Horrible food 6. No ear plugs are available in the plane 7. Not a single apology from the crew about the delay Also, anyone who doesn’t speak mandarin needs to understand that the crew in China is not well equipped to understand and help you, so be prepared to have the translation struggle"
Pros: "Punctual. Seat space better than most airline"
Cons: "Food is meh"
Pros: "Great crew, good service , good food."
Cons: "No wheelchair lift to door, had to climb stairs and stop several times to rest on stairs to plane door."

Pros: "same as before Staff excellent and nice with everybody"
Cons: "the foods"
Pros: "The food was better although drinks were not enough."
Cons: "Crew were hard to understand. When you ask again they tend to be rude and short. They did not help with luggage. The seat was very uncomfortable. Boarding was confusing because they made us go back and forth."
Cons: "The seat selection that I paid Kayak for, was not honoured. Instead I got one of the worst seats on the aircraft and they ran out of food."
Pros: "good selection of movies"

Pros: "Amazing flight"
Cons: "They never pick up the phone when you call them at their offices."
Pros: "The movies and GameStop"
Cons: "2 hours late with any explanations Grumpy staff Bad food - served pork and sausage and called it chicken"
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "Delay ex Manila was said to be 3 hours but was shortened. Looking at bright side."
Cons: "The reception in Shanghai did not at first permit me to connect on my flight to Rome. If I missed that I have a flight on Monday 11am to Geneva that I would miss. My shortened layover in Shanghai due to Manila delay was still 45 minutes but Inwas being asked to transfer and get another flight through the transfer desk. Luckily After a few minutes in line at the transfer desk, was allowed back on my original flight. However and unfortunately, it was due to another 2 hour delay. arrived Rome 815++ pm ISO 6pm."
Pros: "I do not think the check in staff could have been any more useless, they wanted us to collect our luggage at every transfer, the plane was cramped, obviously made for people a lot shorter than my 6 ft, majority of the food was not edible for western people. I will not be using them again."
Cons: "No covered boarding. It was raining and the boarding stairs had no cover. On my previous flight it wasn’t raining but they had covered boarding stairs."
