Pros: "They treated you like you were important and really took care of my every need"
Cons: "Getting on a cattle car to go to another terminal and then get in line again to go on the plane"
Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."
Cons: "It felt a tad bit hot in the plane. No personal vents to adjust to one's own desire."
Pros: "The attentiveness of the flight attendants and the new plane."
Pros: "It’s worth it to pay a bit more for the extra legroom seats."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"
Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"
Cons: "Because the flight from IAD to London was cancelled, I never made it to this flight."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"
Cons: "Lost our luggage that full with our winter clothing for the trip singapore airlines delivered to our hotel the next day and compensate us ¥jpn 12000"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Pros: "Good service and entertainment."

Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "Onboard Crew was great. I sympathize that they have to rush a service on a 1hr 20min flight with turbulance."
Cons: "I have started taking SQ instead of budget airlines hoping for good service and on time travel. However, both times travelling from SQ from jakarta was delayed. Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare. Further, when I wsa travelling to Jakarta - none of the inflight entertainment was working. So it has been disappointing."
Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"

Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival."
Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "The crew is really the only thing making the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "SQ800/805 are operated with "old" 777-200. The cabin is definitely not up to the Singapore Airlines standard. The IFE in particular is showing a very poor screen. And the food was, as frequently on SQ, below average."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and constantly moving through the cabin with drinks and snacks (outside of meal times)"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
"The best airline ever"
Cons: "Nice work"
Pros: "Very comfortable and enjoyable flight"
Pros: "Qatar Airways are still flying, in the midst of Coronavirus, unlike their competitors. This is fantastic! Onboard, there was a full service and excellent crew, all through the night, unlike their competitors during the early days of Coronavirus, when I last flew. Thank you. Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The movie selection, although vast, was not great. I resorted to downloaded Netflix on my tablet."
Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"
Cons: "Crew is very slow in serving and removing spiked plates. Food menu is very limited and not even asking for Tea or coffee, very poor service, feedback alone they ask verbally and thank to be positive. Late boarding not proper announcements"
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding process, in-flight entertainment (movie selection not good), and no wifi in flight :("
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK is very bad. They do not know the meaning of priority. Food from JFK to Doha pretty bad."
Cons: "I was given incorrect date and missed my flight. I had to spend 750 £ and buy a flight from another airline to get home"
Pros: "There was a flight attendant that this was only her second flight. She was amazing. Really enjoyed the service."
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable and food suited me"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "The crew were nice and very helpful. Vegeterian meal was great"
Cons: "It was cold almost for everyone and everyone used blanket, some people asked for second blanket."
Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"
Pros: "The crew was awesome had the most caring crew anything you need thier there to make us happy I’m absolutely happy"
Cons: "I dislike the economic class on a 19 hour journey to Doha to Dallas Texas I felt so tight and annoyed with people next to me when asking to go to the bathroom that’s my mistake next time I surely will go on bussiness class other then that everything was great."
Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Service was excellent with very polite staff."
Cons: "Front seat anchors were right in the middle of the leg space in 777 which is kind of dumb for Boeing guys."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"
Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."
Pros: "The bag with socks and toothbrush with paste was a nice touch. The flights operated on time! The seats were fairly comfortable for coach class."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meals needs some improvement. Lack of Africans as part of the crew."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. Food was less than mediocre."
Pros: "The Qatar crew was great and the entertainment was on point."
Cons: "That my departure times were 1 to 2 hours earlier than what was on my electronic ticket, if I hadn't checked on the airport website, I would've missed all my flights!!"
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "The staff was very accommodating and were able to provide me a seat with more leg room last minute."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Luggage items are missing."
Pros: "We departed late and therefore missed the connection. The staff met me and made arrangement for hotel accommodations till the next available flight. No haggling was necessary. staff on ground and in air sought to be helpful. Price of ticket was very affordable. Seating comfortable."
Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."
Cons: "I didn't have much time on my layover, i would've expected the transfer to be better."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."

Cons: "Completely satisfied."

Pros: "crew was very nice"
Cons: "entertainment system malfunction needed a long time to reboot"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "The service during the flights"
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"

Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."

Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Crew was nice and offered extra drinks when asked."
Cons: "Screaming crying babies"
Pros: "Food was good"

Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Absolutely Fabulous Crew, very attentive to Passenger Needs."
Cons: "The food could have been more tasty and warm."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. Airline officials did not board according to zones printed on boarding pass. Arm rest in seats were locked in place and did not pivot up to allow using the adjacent empty seat."
Pros: "Friendly airline staff. Ease of obtaining boarding pass at the counter. Clean, modern aircraft. Thanks China Airlines!"
Cons: "As with all airlines, the "the hurry up and wait" processes associated with getting onto the plane are tiring."
Pros: "The movies and food"
Cons: "I was seated at the exit seats next to the wall. I feel the seat was more small there. My body hurt so much."
Pros: "Since I had no check-in luggage on my way to Manila from Los Angeles, my medicine bag was packed in my carry-on with wheels. When, in Manila, I was forced to check-in that piece of luggage, I forgot to move my medication into my backpack which I carried with me on board. In Taipei, I asked the ground crew to retrieve my medication from my check-in carry-on. The team worked diligently and made sure that my medication was handed to me as I was one boarding the plane with the last few. I was delighted by the level of service and the fact that I was able to take my medication before the flight took off. What a difference in attitude between the Manila and Taipei ground crews. Thank you Taipei ground crew!"
Pros: "All my family wanted to have chicken flavor ,but we all got the wrong one"
Pros: "good it was not a long flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit negligent. They passed me when serving the food just because the aisle seat passenger next to me was served his special meal earlier, so they did not notice that the passenger at the window seat (which was me) had no tray in front of him when running the regular meal service. Isn't this sloppy !? Problem is that once they passed you, it's hard to get their attention, as they are always in a hurry, and not looking over the cabin just to check if someone needs something or wants to call on them for any reason, and there are no attendant calling buttons available. So you have to wait until they come by your seat again. Finally I got my meal with apologies 15 minutes later, but the experience was already ruined and the negative impression built.. Also, when departing from Taipei, the boarding process was a bit disorganized, compared with the one we had in Vancouver. As for as the entertainment, the LCD monitor at my seat was pretty worn out, with very poor contrast, making it difficult to watch a movie or read information. Same airline with two opposing experiences: Vancouver-to-Taipei very good, Taipei-to-Manila: poor."
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Very bad service.. I request for help on the plane and no one showed up to help me."
Pros: "China Irline crew and staff have the painful boarding and check-in process to a science: impressively organized which makes check-in and boarding such a breath."
Pros: "Nice, clean plane"

Pros: "Great service with drinks and water. The seats were super comfortable!! The plane ride was smooth. The hostess/hosts were excellent and had really nice manners."

Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff. I appreciated the extra leg room."

Pros: "I had 4 seats for me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not friendly."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was August and they did not have ac blowing during 14 of the 16 hour flight. So warm I couldn't sleep. The other two hours the ac was too high making it cold...I actually liked that but the woman next to me didn't."
Cons: "Really delayed, almost missed connecting flights. No way to contact them about this aside from a phone number that we couldn't call internationally."
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."
Pros: "Aircraft wasn't crowded and the staff were great"
Pros: "Exactly what you would want a flight to be!"
Cons: "The food can be improved. It was my least favorite about flying with China Airlines."
Pros: "Good connection time"
Pros: "They put many American airlines to shame, as they are so efficient and pleasant. Flights were very on-time, with only small delays. Very good at de-planing passengers quickly."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. Great flight/plane and crew."
Pros: "Friendly staff; good entertainment options"
Cons: "Delayed by several hours; infrequent water distribution"
Pros: "Very good."
Pros: "They should be concerned about food hygiene"
Pros: "Crew and staff were all very responsive and proactive in providing assistance, seed genuinely eager to help. Boarding was fine, and a representative of the airline took initiative to form a preliminary queue at the terminal departure counter despite the airline not having an all-day dedicated counter."
Cons: "While its 4-seat layout was better than some anes' 5 seats in the middle column, the seating was, of course, cramped, and I did not have enough space under the seat in front of me to stow my backpack. I also wish Kayak had included easy means to select seats and special meal options. Apparently to do so requires visiting the airline's own webpage."
Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Pros: "I liked how friendly and courteous the Flight Attendants were"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped in Economy."
Cons: "Wifi not included"
Cons: "missing baggage"
Cons: "Where to begin... Horrible online experience, outdated planes, rude staff, and overall bad experience."
Pros: "One of the beat flying experiences ever. China Airlines does cust at a high level"
Cons: "Nothing to report bad"
Pros: "Price was good. The plane was quiet and clean."
Cons: "Food was not very good compared to competitors. I fly a lot and I'm positive these were the smallest seats I've ever had. Understand it's economy, but for a 12 hr. flight it's difficult. Also, check-in line took almost 2 hrs, giving most of us 30 min to go through security and find the boarding gate."
Pros: "Customer service was great."
Cons: "My daughters audio didn't work at all in her entertainment system and my audio was really terrible. We did expect to watch movies and was unhappy that the audio wasn't working on a business class flight."
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Food was good."
Pros: "The attendants were very good on the flight and they made it worthwhile to fly there..."
Cons: "The customer service guy was not professional at all...also he was very back stabbing in his dealing with the requests...cause there were many open seats in premium economy and he claimed there were none...very bad attitude..."
Pros: "3 more inches of leg room."
Cons: "smallest seat ever. Could mot move or fit. Could not fit a lap top either."
Cons: "not enough toilets for a full flight - I had to wait a long time each time I had to go. The food was good, however, I didn't feel like I got a full meal. I ordered gluten free and did not get a substitute for bread in the evening or morning meal and didn't even get yogurt in the morning. I was glad I brought some bars with me just in case."
Cons: "Excessive time to get ticketing in the beginning. Poor passenger handling and lack of caring by checking in and airport agents"
Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"
Pros: "Crew was very good. The food was better than most."
Cons: "The toilets should be checked for cleanliness more often, and supplies replenished."
Cons: "Late with no explanation and no communication just late to load. Late to depart. Late late late"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding, crew, food"
Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and they had good movies."
Cons: "The food can be a little better"
Pros: "Super long delays at each leg"
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times at take off, then upon landing we waited on tarmac for another hour waiting for gate to open"
Pros: "Great seats (Premium Economy) and very friendly crew."
Cons: "A descent selection of movies, both old and new. But towards the end, I they kept stopping and I had to restart (from where I left off) a few times."
Pros: "Boarding and deboarding seem to be so much faster in Asia based airlines than US."
Cons: "Need more frequent beverage services. Also, we paid for more leg room, but it was still claustrophobic."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. Alcohol included."
Cons: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"
Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."
Pros: "Always great service on pal flights"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "I loved the space in Business class. It was comfortable and great for sleeping."
Cons: "The movies in the entertainment system were boring and the food fell short of what I would expect from business class."
Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was very tight. I can’t imagine how the tall people can fit."
Pros: "Well organize & very courteous.."
Cons: "So far no complaint"
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: "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: "Broken tv control and head sets x 2 wish I could have used my bose"
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: "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: "The service was excellent - warm, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough leg room on the small airbus we had on the Vietnam - Manila leg for someone my height ( 1.83 m )"
Pros: "Once the aircraft left the gate and started taxiing, it did the job. The crew also did their jobs. Nothing remarkable. Passengers were few, so everyone could relax better."
Cons: "One day in advance, an e-mail announced that the flight would be delayed by 1 h 10 mn. Once at the airport, the delay was increased. by 35 minutes. Yet, at the airport and on the aircraft, the only explanation given was the overplayed refrain "Due to late arrival of the aircraft..." PLEASE, stop kidding us. Bad management is not the same as "late arrival". At 3 AM everybody was on board. No other arriving or departing aircraft in that CGK airport at that ungodly time. The pilot mumbled something about loading cargo. We sat an extra 50 minutes before taking off. This airplane has no screen of any kind in Economy. There were posters and a booklet describing the possibilities of entertainment. Again, who is kidding whom? Before going bankrupt, the old Philippines Air Lines used the acronym P.A.L. And everyone read: "Planes Always Late". The acronym is gone, but the delays are back, for sure. I am sorry that I did not go on a low cost flight."
Pros: "When I first checked in I was pleased to have the exit row as my seat as I really enjoy the extra leg room especially on an overnight flight. Then just before we boarded I got upgraded to business class which has never happened to me before and I loved it! The staff were very nice and the flight was enjoyable, I was able to sleep very well."
Cons: "The Chinese dumplings that I had for breakfast weren’t very good, they didn’t seem very fresh."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was relatively efficient terms of service on the plane. Flight attendants were courteous and hospitable, despite the fact that the flight was full. It was also a relatively smooth flight."
Cons: "First of all, it took a very long time to check-in, despite the fact that I had done web check-in the night before. I think a lot of people felt the same way. It took also a very long time before we took off. We were told that it was because of the luggage being loaded but it took almost 2 hours before we finally took off. In the plane, there was a man who was obviously intoxicated and was talking in a very loud voice. I think that someone should have spoken to him about his behavior and proper decorum on the plane. Also, the flight didn't have WiFi working on the plane as well (we were told that it wasn't working) and the seat back was broken. I wish that they had told us that ahead of time to manage expectations. I hope that the next flight that I take on Philippine Airlines will be better. I hope that these comments/suggestions will really be taken into consideration so that they can make their service even better because I would really want to use Philippine Airlines again."
Pros: "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."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in economy for anyone over 5 foot ten inches."
Pros: "The crew was fine.I appreciated that it was non-stop."
Cons: "There was about 8" of leg room in the economy section. Not enough to move my feet around. The beef sausage breakfast was tasteless and not very warm; the eggs were watery. The movie was extremely violent. I worry about the children on board who could see it even if they couln't hear it."
Pros: "Great staff very nice and enterianment system at each seat was very good."
Pros: "PAL express from LAX to Manila had accommodation for their passangers"
Cons: "I could not connect to WiFi even though it was free."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay."
Pros: "Ok movie selection - gave you iPads, which were somewhat glitchy, but eventually seemed to work. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "This airline has been terrible to deal with. Before departing, they cancelled one leg of our trip, then waited a full month to rebook (only after weekly, sometimes more often, calls from us). We actually weren't sure if the flight was actually rebooked until we arrived at the airport and were able to check in. The food on all the flights was terrible. Dealing with customer service on the ground at the Manila airport was also terrible - they just kept saying they had to ask someone else who had to ask someone else, then changed the subject and did the same thing with an unrelated question until we got so fed up we left. It took 40 minutes for a bus to come to transfer us from terminal 1 to 2."
Cons: "Flight delayed for about 2 hours"
Pros: "Business class comfortable with friendly staff"
Cons: "Food was not good. Had to wait for 20 wheelchairs to go ahead of me when boarding. Not all those people were disabled but they ask you if you need a wheelchair and people just say yes so they can board first. It's a blatant abuse of the system."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and they said they couldn't get another flight. We then had to re-buy tickets on another airline. They never said a thing about a refund"
Cons: "our flight was pretty delayed due to another delayed flight from the night before, in which they decided to combine half the passengers in to our flight. They also did not communicate this effectively and check in was horrible."
Cons: "Unexpected pit stop added stress to our trip."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats on Philippines airlines are too narrow."
Pros: "Seat is good and nes"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. During the flight, you need to have your tablet or phone with installed PAL apps to able to access and play their online entertainments."
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Pros: "It was cheap. The seats were ok. Flight attendant made me a special vegetarian tray, really appreciated that."
Cons: "Very no frills. Very old airplane. Only 1 tv screen in the front of the airplane, no individual tvs. Bathroom got very dirty by the end of the flight, trash bin overflowing. Food was inedible."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines airport was convoluted, no signage, no screens, horrible. Checked-in online to speed things up, but the ladies at the "Online check-in counter" was not there, and when they turned up, there were in training. Then the boarding gates/lounge. None of the restaurants accepted credit or debit cards (?). It's an international airport!?! Unbelievable. Once boarded, realised none of the seats had screens or any onboard entertainment unless you had downloaded the myPal app. It would have been handy if the check-in staff informed us of this. Then there were flight delays, with no explanation. No screens with any live updates. Nothing. Worst terminal on planet earth! Now the plane. It must be a plane bought from another airline who completed their 30 year lease of the aircraft, because it looked like from the 1980's or older. Falling apart, uncomfortable, toilets not working, dirty, run down. The air-crew were lazy and rude and were inconsistent. One would say they ran out of something, then the person next to me would ask another crew, and received what they requested (food, assistance, pens, etc). Horrible. The pilots rarely informed us of the flight updates. Just utterly horrible! I cannot believe I have to fly with them on my return leg back home :("
Pros: "Philippine Air didn't disappoint, which it has at times because it seems to always be delayed. However, not this time, and the service Philippine Air provides is very good."
Cons: "I never heard the airport announce boarding for this flight, but simply saw people slowly begin to head through the gate, so I did likewise. For that matter, Busan's Gimhae airport is third-class at best, IMO. I flew out of Busan once before and the experience was terrible again. Would always recommend travelers take the KTX to Incheon where you'll have more options, probably lower fares and less aggravation."
Pros: "Excellent service and nice people"
Cons: "1 hr 45 min for check-in!"
