Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."
Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "SIA service and food is always good. The flight went by quickly which is good."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the 777 did not have a touchscreen which I have been accustomed to on other SIA flights, but the main issue was the brightest setting for the screen was very dim. I think the screen is just old and not as bright as before."
Pros: "Seats in economy were larger than United. Food was good for airplane food, even found a last minute vegetarian meal not ordered ahead. Appreciated a gratis glass of wine. Found a clean pillow and blanket in every seat upon boarding."
Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"
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: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Pros: "Very good service."
Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
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: "The B787 between Taipei and Bangkok was very comfortable. Really amazing how much less unpleasant it is to be in that plane compared to others. Crew was fine."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the gate agent did not call to board by group number"
Cons: "N/A: very professional crew! The cabin remained clean for the entire duration of each of my 11 hour flights."
Pros: "My experience with the airlines was poor because I got downgraded without any explanation. Upon arriving at the airport, I kept hearing, 'just wait a second,' then, they would say, 'Im sorry.' In the end they issued a voucher to be used during a future flight, which will never be used."
Pros: "Easy flight, quite nice for such a short trip."
Cons: "It's a shame that there is no way to earn Star Alliance miles (United specifically) on the flights to Luang Prabang -- can't get them on Thai Smile and don't get Star Alliance Gold status benefits on this flight, even when booked through Thai Airways."

Cons: "Food in economy could be more Thai and tasty but nicely served and efficient"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes. If it was not delayed, I'll give it good rating."
Cons: "My flight from LA was delayed so my checked bag did not get transferred in time to come through with me from Taipei to Bangkok."

Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."
Pros: "Short flight but full service with flat bed business class, was not expecting that!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The plane developed a fault 1h out so we had to fly around for half an hour dumping fuel before returning to Bangkok where we were kept in a transit lounge till a replacement aircraft was found. Missed my connections too"

Cons: "Terrible entertainment options"
Pros: "Airline and cabin crew services are great. Comfortable seats. Nice perfume available in the toilets."
Cons: "Board was troublesome and wasted alot of time as the tube was not used.had to walk down a flight of stairs then wait for mini bus (with very limited seats), then take it for around 5-7mins drive to reach the plane. Then wait for the previous minibus's crowd to clear then walk another flight of stairs up the plane :( I can accept this from a budget airline but not a commercial airline at a usual well-equipped airport especially when it's at its own home country."
Pros: "The dedicated check in area that led to its own screening and immigration"
Cons: "Food service was a little slow, not a good selection of movies"
Cons: "Super delayed."

Cons: "The gate was the furthest one and boarding was delayed more than 30 minutes"
Cons: "Late departing, no gate, waiting, immigration jammed. Overall very bad."
Cons: "Our itinerary did not show that we had to transit in Chiangmai. It came as a surprise when we checked in at the airport. That was very misleading. We had to remove our hand luggage at each stop."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Late again byt not much"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled. Crew was not helpful or informative. Was not compensated for delays at all, missed wedding functions!!"
Pros: "Baggage did not make connection to Phuket."
Pros: "Service was great, crew on board were friendly and good entertainment."
Cons: "Was not given my special dietary food at beguinning of flight and was also not received the help I was assuered when flight was delayed."
Cons: "No where to charger my phone."
Pros: "Attentive staff that managed to squeeze a quick food service on a short flight."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "All of the above mentioned service."
Cons: "All of the above mentioned service."
Pros: "They maintained darkness inside the cabin, thus I could relax well."
Cons: "Food was not good, also they served dinner at 5 pm which was very early for me. I had late lunch at 1:30 and was not expecting dinner at 5 pm. I did not feel hungry and so refused the meal. Unfortunately they served only a cup cake later in the evening. It was a 6 hour flight, thus a small cup cake late in the evening did not suffice."
Pros: "Nice Crew , very professional and courteous. Pleasant with their service. Would recommend only once for tourism. Not for families travelling with children."
Cons: "Because the system of on arrival visa has been opened to Indian folks , entire plane was crowded with indecent , uncultured Men. Mostly drunkards who would not stop at couple of drinks. Added to their worst behavior was the airlines providing unlimited amount of Liquor that was being offered by the crew after the food was served, this was quite annoying and unexpected. Thai Airways Please stop serving Liquor for God's sake , especially for folks travelling from India (Only this route) or charge $100 THB for a drink, this would stop those free riders from messing up other tourists happy vacation."
Pros: "staffs were helpful and smiling, food was nice and plenty"
Cons: "seat reclination and shape were not so comfortable, PTV was old and not sharp"
Pros: "Staff, service, and entertainment!"

Cons: "Waiting line for immigration at Manila airport"
Pros: "Crew were bright and cheery"
Cons: "Even though a short flight 1 hour 15minutes I am surprised no VOD - not even in business."
Cons: "The service was not that great. Normally the staff is very attentive but they lacked in service this time and I am not an attention seeker. (In all the flight I ask for their presence 1-2 times for water) Who knows why. Got served the wrong plate and drink."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late due to the logistical incompet nice of the Kathmandu airport. This is a chronic problem."
Pros: "First class airline"
Cons: "decor inside plane looked a little dated"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, comfy, and relaxing. The chairs have everything you need with two pockets, USB, power outlet, and stereo headphone jacks (it looks like the old school dual mono with two prongs but just plug into the right one for stereo). The entertainment was superb with very recent films (although they were censored which sucks) and a responsive unit and nice remote."
Cons: "The only thing that was lame was the food. Absolutely terrible. You don't have many options at 40,000 ft but be prepared for sub dollar store quality. At least the booze was free."
Pros: "There was no provision of snacks for vegetarians.we being members of frequent flyer club should have been treated with care and air hostess curtly responded only chicken and nothing else Felt as if we were beggars in expecting hospitality.Giving one star as zero star not possible.Will think twice before flying again with the said airlines again."
Pros: "Late departure but kept informed. Food good."
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Pros: "the noodle snack and food was good"

Pros: "When do you need help they always happy Helping"
Cons: "The best"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on this flight, modern movies and TV programs. The food was good, more than enough to fill you up on a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The business class configuration on the 777s operates on this flight is not worth the extra price paid. I found that the level of recline (120 degrees) made my back ache and it just wasn’t comfortable. I’ve flown this flight several times now and this is an issue for me. I’d like to arrive refreshed"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Don't delay"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortably"
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Cons: "The breakfast vegetarian food didn’t have any taste! Serve some real food!"

Cons: "Hi. I want you to pay me back half of my air tickets that I paid+ my expenses that I spent. I bought from you air tickets with Scoot airlines from H.K to Singapore on 30 December and back to H.K on the 3 January. when I came to the H.K airport to check in with scoot airlines they said to me that I can't go to Singapore because my passport expired on 2 of June and it's less than 6 months if I want to go to Singapore I need to have in my passport more than 6months. sow in the end I lost the ticket to Singapore and not only this I went back to H.K I toke a room in the hotel 150$ and the day after I went to the embassy of Israel to extend my passport and I bought a new air tickets with Cathay Pacific 350$ to go to Singapore. its mean that I lost my ticket +500$ .and all this because you never informed me that my passport needs to be valid more than 6 months . you can see also in your letter its written there that my passport need to be valid there is not any thing about 6 months. if you was telling me that before I could change my passport. sow pleas I insist that you will pay me back half on my ticket that I lost + my expenses 500$. if I will not get it back my story will be all over in the internet about you I suffered a lot"
Pros: "On time. Good service"
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Air hostess did not offer hot drinks"
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Cons: "The crew service very lack"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and pleasant. The entertainment was great with lots of choices. Premium economy seats on A350 was amazing. Very similar to Qants reganal business class on their 737. But how ever the seats on their A330 was average. But otherwise all was good. I would recommend Cathay."
Cons: "The food was very small portion and average in taste. The crew took a wile to take the trays and clear after all ate."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "Comfortable Economy class on A330. Adequate seating and a good breakfast pastry for a short duration flight."
Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."
Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Staff Food"
Cons: "Delayed due to rain (stopped us boarding, held in skyway for 15 minutes, had to run to another gate) Poor communication on delay/flight info."

Cons: "A short flight with just snacks. Seems downgraded the international flight standard."
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "Only complaint was the disembarking routine. They emptied all of business and first before coach could even begin to leave the coach cabin. I am all in favor of giving business and first preference in getting off the plane, but this was just too much, waiting for the slowest person in business to get off before a single person could leave the coach cabin."
Pros: "Easy check in, and a pleasant flight! Thank You!!!"
Pros: "Had a very present experience. Crew was lovely and helpful. Liked that we had menus for meals and snack readily available. Felt like the food was better than the average plane fair and wine with the meal of you want it. Plenty of movies on the media screen. There was often a line for the toilets. We must have been a well hydrated flight. Attendants were good with maintaining the tissue paper etc when notified that it had run out Overall a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Boarding and security is very efficient at Changi - other airports should take note."
Pros: "Super easy to book, loved the notifications of baggage claim number upon exiting the flight. Great itinerary too."

Cons: "On time and very Nice cabincrew"
Cons: "Food smooth"
Cons: "It’s a complete torture to be in transit at Manila airport.a large number of Passengers are kept hostage in a small room with a capacity of about 40 persons. Passport and boarding passes are taken away by the airline ground staff. Good airline but worst staff at airport. A lot to be said. TORTURE"
Pros: "Time management"
Cons: "More information about the terminals"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Check in at Manila was super slow. It took us 3 hours to check in at the counter. Food was terrible."
Pros: "The PAL Pilot and Cabin crew was very attentive and friendly. they showed professionalism to every passengers they have encountered. They were very attentive to the needs of each passenger due to 3 hrs delayed arrival. The food taste really good (Strawberry shortcake + chicken penne with red sauce). The plane is well cleaned."
Cons: "I have experienced 1 hr delay departure + 3 hours waiting inside the plane to land, but it was because of uncontrolled situation (force majuere). but despite of the delay, for me PAL served its finest world class service."
Pros: "Yes the crew are amazing."
Pros: "Great Flight Crew very Pleasant"
Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Cons: "the business class seats were not comfortable, badly designed. also it seems some staff (i think manager) are just sitting around, only one young guy was really doing all the work."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "We had to wait for additional passengers after boarding and then again after they came in to take off, so waited an additional 2 hours on the plane (it really adds up on 12+ hour flights). Communication about he delay was mediocre, and the website did not have updated flight info for pickup."
Cons: "The business seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Short leg room"
Cons: "Better snack and more leg room"
Cons: "To check out baggage it was very long try to make it short"
Cons: "It was all good, the crew were very accomodating and keeping us comfortable during the flight. It became uncofortable midflight because of one passenger, named Rachelle Marie Perez Herrera Lim sitting in 54 B started to complain about one female crew. She was unreasonable, unccoperative."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken for the paid meal. Fish was terrible."
Pros: "Yes crew and plane were ok."
Pros: "3 meals, drinks, pillow, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste and sleep mask were included. Staff was friendly and kind. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Check in counter ground staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Boarding gates have too many flights assigned to it making waiting area very crowded. Toilets are too far. Flight attendants could be more helpful to passengers with infants and small children."
Pros: "The ataff assigned me an exit row qwitj extra legroom"
Cons: "Relatively comfortable seats. Boarding process rather chaotic. Awful food, poor and limited entertainment options, unkind and grumpy staff. Not great for 13 hours!"
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: "Most ofit"
Cons: "Transfers in manill"
Cons: "I was expecting that they will compensate for the time loss but unfortunately they did not. I asked for an earlier flight and a good seat, but they just kept me waiting."
Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."
Pros: "Great on-board service. Also, the food was very good for such a short flight."
Cons: "Inexplicable why the counter staff in Taipei would not begin issuing boarding passes until 4:05PM for a flight that LEAVES at 6:35PM! I was very concerned that the huge line would prevent me from processing through security and make the flight."
Pros: "Service from the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I’m over 6 feet tall and the seating was cramped for someone my size. Full service international flights should have in flight entertainment systems."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, the boarding process was fantastic."
Cons: "The smallest seats of any airline. No entertainment at all. Food is subpar at best. No auto checkin, so had to wait in line even without checked luggage."
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."

Cons: "Because of Long lines at Thai immigration, I made it the gate as my Group was boarding. I was afraid I was going to be late."
Pros: "Legroom is wider than cheap airline, service is better. Ticket price is able to compete with cheap airline. What should a traveler ask more for?"
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: "Comfortable, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties. 9 pm delayed then new flight next day around 10/11am"
Pros: "For a short trip of almost two hours going to and from Taipei, I did not expect to receive such accomodating treatment from PAL. Crews are efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Flight delayed for about 2 hours"
Pros: "Trip was awesome, as per my nephews they enjoyed every bit of it, it was their first trip abroad"
Cons: "They liked everything, they gave a high rating.. perfect 10"
Cons: "Terminal 2 Manila is really going down the drain check in one row, immigration endless inside depart only one toilet to s eve a totally overcrowded check in Zone, not sure who the genius is deciding to close down additional toilets on one of the most busy travel days"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Turbulent flight. Small washrooms."
Cons: "Unexpected pit stop added stress to our trip."
Cons: "Of the four total flights, to include connections, Philippine Airlines was delayed on all legs. The delays were all after boarding and while sitting in plane. Delays ranged from 30 minutes to 75 minutes and all four flight delays were reported to be due to delays in getting baggage on the planes or getting the meals loaded on the planes according to the pilot's reports. Of note, on all four flights, the crew ran out of food before getting to our isle and had only one option remaining with no alternatives for those allergic to any portion of the meal. I would absolutely never recommend Philippine Airlines to anyone. The reduced cost of tickets was absolutely not worth the experience."
Cons: "My outbound flight (Manila to Taipei) was rescheduled so I had to make alternative plans. On the day itself, we were told that the flight was cancelled with very little warning. I wasted a total of 8 hours waiting to be put on another flight. They transferred us to the cheaper Cebu Pacific flight that left 5 hours later (at 10 pm!) than the PAL flight. Most horrible flying experience I've ever had in my entire life and I've been flying internationally for almost 20 years. Their customer service is terrible, not transparent and not helpful. They took longer than necessary to rebook people to other flights. Completely horrible. I have another flight booked with PAL that I can no longer cancel, but after that one, never flying them again!"
Pros: "Philappo all very nice"
Cons: "nothing i didnt like"
