I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive.

Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall service excellent"

Cons: "The plane was broken. Old. I paid for business and they couldn’t even allow business to board first. On screen entertainment was broke. Seats were broken. The seats DO NOT fold flat in business. Not a good experience, do not recommend. Fly Singapore airlines if possible, Thai airways just doesn’t have it together- plus it’s relatively the same price with way better amenities and experience"
Cons: "The whole booking experience and long phone and frustrating. Long phone calls with not very knowledgeable/understanding staff for clearing payment with Momondo was a farce. Using a corporate credit card I have used for several years. I didn't get confirmation before I went to bed. Only next morning, when I woke up 5 am for getting my flight, I finally had the confirmation. Could never get it before I went to bed 1.30 but - but they could confirm the payment was done alright! Hurray! Never booking with Momondo/Kiwi again."

Pros: "Food was amazing"
Cons: "The WIFI"

Pros: "The seats were super comfortable and they had lots of new movies and tv shows for entertainment. Free alcoholic bevies too!"

Pros: "Loved the journey. It was excellent. Food, service were all good. Comfort of the journey was again excellent."
Cons: "There was a 30 minute delay at the gate for boarding which was not announced or informed."
Pros: "For such a short 1 hour flight, they managed to feed an A330 plane load of people - pretty impressive feat considering that US carriers don’t even bother to give complimentary hot food on a cross country flight. The color scheme didn’t hurt either. The FA’s were very accommodating and so pleasant."
Pros: "Same as above, nice staff and an amazing plane."
Pros: "Service was great, food options were good. I have no complaints."

Pros: "Fairly spacious, the food was nice and we were given beverage's at a good pace."
Cons: "I was not told to put my seat belt on for landing... I was actually not aware of landing as I was asleep, but landing woke me up and it was a little concerning, as most crew's check seat belts on approach to landing."
Pros: "The staff was nice and efficient."
Cons: "They didn't start boarding until very late and additionally the flight was an hour delayed. Understood that this is sometimes out of the airlines control as it may have been the airport's fault but they didn't notify the passengers why. This caused me & my boyfriend to miss a ferry we were scheduled to take in Krabi. We lost almost an entire day of our trip because of this."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing. Great service, even food and drinks served on an hr flight!"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent!"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Service in airplane"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Good entertainment. Skychat nice add on"
Cons: "Service not responsive when you called them. When seated on the middle sometimes difficult to get out, that's why the is a call button. The only problem, no reaction when activating that light."
Cons: "The air in the cabin was too cold during the first hour of the flight. Obviously many passengers were not comfortable and asking for blankets. Later, the crew must had adjusted the temperature and it was basically steaming hot because the it was only hot air blowing out from centralized air system. I would say, very uncomfortable during the entire flight from Bangkok to Manila."
Pros: "Very nice crew Got free drinks and meal"
Cons: "Hard to see tv and watch movies with cabin lights on"

Cons: "Good choices like non- Red Meat"
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice and helpful"
Cons: "Ancient 777 seating"
Pros: "Ahead of departure time"
Cons: "Snacks and should have inflight"
Cons: "Excessive time to get ticketing in the beginning. Poor passenger handling and lack of caring by checking in and airport agents"
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: "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!"
Cons: "Baggage delayed for days"
Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "Since I booked the flight last minute and I needed a special meal, there was no option to book one. It helps if there are such meals reserved for last minute bookings"
Pros: "Best in flight entertainment for any airline I've used"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "Crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Need reclining seats"
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: "Delayed for 2.5 hours."
Cons: "Seats did not recline very much. Hard. Food was very plain and starchy."
Pros: "Short leg room"
Cons: "Better snack and more leg room"
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: "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: "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: "Crew were polite and helpful Aircraft ? Great Bad. Awesome awful. All of those. I really was to say nice things as it’s just basics that were bad"
Cons: "Business lounge ? Ummm totally unacceptable. It’s a PAYG uncomfortable Un stocked unstaffed waste. Food Was extremely basic. If economy fine but business!!! Very poor"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "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: "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: "I observed that the crew were doing there very best to help with the passengers and their concerns. I also saw that they were on top with regards to cleanliness especially the lavatories. I also like how they treat each and everyone with respect especially the older people that we are with."
Cons: "PAL - Plane Always Late! it seems that this meaning to the acronym sticks really good with our flag carrier. I was observing and trying to get some information on what is happening or reason for our delayed flight but to no avail. The captain's explanation makes no sense. With a 3 hour delay, I knew and felt that It would not be a great ride because right from the very start it already started wrong. I was already stressed out from the very beginning even though i saw in the cabin crew's effort and super great service towards especially to our older passengers their dedication and passion to serve. I was really looking forward to this flight but I guess this was one of those days that all you could do is close your eyes and stretch your patience. One other bad experience was getting on Terminal 1. Great improvement but it could be still better. Can't connect to Wifi (its asking me my number on the US when I did not sign up for roaming and for sure will not be able to get the code that they will send on my number) Last year was better, just log on and boom! Impressively lightning wifi speed connection. No questions or log ins and you can safely assure and text your relatives waiting patiently outside that you are there waiting. I just wished we went to Terminal 2 instead. But I guessed it will also be the same because everything started on a bad start with that 3hour delay. They were lucky most of the passengers were excited to be home and sleeping!"
Pros: "There was some form of entertainment that they provided in the form of iPads so I didn't feel bored on the flight as I have trouble sleeping on flights. Because Dubai has an issue with transferring my bags, the airline did find and place my bag on the next flight"
Cons: "Some of the programs had audio only and no videos. The food on the flight was subpar at best, the breakfast meal had scrambled eggs that had no form at all. THEY WERE RUNNY EGGS AND HAD THE CONSISTENCY OF BABY FOOD. Dubai has a habit of not transferring my checked bag to my continuing flight. And Dubai placed me on the wrong bus upon arrival so I couldn't get my bag to transfer my bag"
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: "i like the movies selection , dinner meal which was sweet and sour fish ."
Cons: "They don’t offer meals for people who aren’t beef or pork eaters . Although they had a fish meal the breakfast did not have that option."
Cons: "Flight delays several hours. Its a very terrible flight. No apology from airlines company too."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "I liked that the lady at the front desk turned us away and we weren’t able to board our flight due to not having a passport that extended out six months to expiration."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I booked my flights months in advance and would have done this adjustment with Our ample time and not one person informed us about our passports from kayak or Philippine Airlines. It was disgusting that I had to lose my flight and not even receive any kind of courtesy from them or you as far as even a partial refund or any kind of acknowledgement. We just booked other flights without your product. Terrible experience. i am just appalled at the kind of service kayak offers."
Pros: "Help because the delay caused us to miss our next flight"
Cons: "Delay, crew didn’t prioritize us getting off the plane when they knew our situation of missing our flight. We didnt get food choice because they ran out when they got to us."
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 great service and hospitality of the flight crew. Was upgraded to business class, thanks PAL."
Cons: "In flight entertainment is through an iPad device which is not fully charged."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "nothing to really like. the crew and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "kind of hard to believe my other flight through PAL was the best I've taken. This must have been an older plane or something. No entertainment minimal leg room. Must have just been luck of the draw"
Pros: "The boarding, crew & food."
Cons: "Comfort: Not enough leg room. Entertainment: None . Only a magazine to browse through. Investment in TV screens & inflight movies etc. would aid greatly!"
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: "Clean and new airplane. Good screen Nice staff good space between the seats"
Cons: "Bad snacks, very limited baverage served. Limited selection of movies. very very limited TV shows. Almost no music to my taste, need to upgrade their music options!!"
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Pros: "I've always enjoyed the service I receive on Asian carriers. Last night was the first time I have experienced PAL. I had read some not so good reviews so I was skeptical and canceled my first booking. After looking at other options, I discovered PAL's direct flight from Los Angeles to Manila was the best option so I took a chance. From the moment I check in at the ticket counter in Los Angeles until we landed in Manila, I received exceptional service, tasty food and a clean environment. I have flown several Asian air carriers and have had great experiences on them all. PAL delivered the same experience I have come to love when traveling to Asia. I will definitely fly them again."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was not having discovered PAL before"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "No announcement for boarding and flight delayed."
Pros: "got lucky and no one sat next to me. Boarding was fast"
Cons: "No Entertainment module, have to pay for Wifi"
Cons: "Seats were very small. Think Asian size. I am 5foot 10 inches and it was a struggle to sit there for 3 hours. There is no tv on the plane. They want you to use your personal device which I would not do as this would drain my battery. There is no charging station on the plane. 3 out of the 4 PAL flights were delayed each by two hours or more. I would not take this airline again. I got a cheap fare of $600 roundtrip and now I know why it was so cheap. The airport in Manila is so shitty limited seating and limited choices of food."
Pros: "On our return flight from Narita to Manila there was this family with 3 little kids and seating directly in front of us , the little girl cried the entire flight of 4 hours every 10 seconds and the mom didn't do anything to calm her , even wearing a headset I can hear the girl crying. The crew should have done something to seat them at the end but they were seated in the middle. Was so annoyed ! Flight attendant were slow taking our empty food tray. 1/2 hour later or more before they finally take it. No addt'l crew to give drinks after the meal."
Cons: "To small and old seats. I am so tiny already but I can bump my elbow to next person seating. No leg room."
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: "Very interesting experience at Manila airport. Their transfer system needs refining and modernising. It was a very difficult and harf to understand process"
Pros: "That the plane took off on time and landed ahead of schedule - not like the trip down to Sydney"
Cons: "The entertainment system is non existent and is something that needs to be addressed. The food was a bit better than what was served on the trip down to Sydney but also needs to improve."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "The food was horrible and not really a choice. The children's meals should be more simple like fruit and chicken and fish without sauces"
Pros: "Seats were quite good"
Cons: "Appalling service, not once did they attend to requests. No entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants did not keep the children and their seats they let them run around as we taxied the airport until one fell and had their head. Then they would not insist on them to stay in in their seats even on take off."
Pros: "Crew quiet experienced and courteous."
Cons: "Legroom would good"
Pros: "Good flight and really comfortable. Rate 5 star"
Cons: "Very satisfied on my travel from London to Muscat"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"
Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Snacks would have been better than a cheese sandwich"
Cons: "Business class should hv full flat beds"
Cons: "To begin with they checked our boarding pass a minimum of 7 times, it makes one feel like they are in the wrong place. Secondly the seats offer leg room as an LCC, but charging non LCC money for them. Overall poor airline, staff wasn’t kind at all."
Cons: "Lost my checkedin baggage. Missed my connection flight from Muscat due to delay in arrival from Istanbul"
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "in flight entertainment was really good"
Cons: "checkin luggage was terrible with more than half an hour wait although web checkin was already made"
Cons: "Chairs are small"
Pros: "food was ok and ample."
Cons: "window seat bad for me as I stand frequently. Cramped leg room Seperated from my wife"
Cons: "The while tip was so bad"

Pros: "Loved all of it. Zero complaints"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Pros: "Roomy business class"
Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."
Cons: "Slow check in at Kathmandu"
Pros: "It was a smooth journey"
Cons: "It was overall a good experience. Nothing negative to say."
Cons: "Problems with our extra legroom being allocated at the check in desk as oman employ a 3rd party called option town to handle this process. Numerous broken tv screens on the aircraft preventing passengers from watching tv. Losing our baggage for over 2 days. Creaking tv screens prevent passengers from sleeping. Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."
Pros: "Decent entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Poor quality headphones - jacks are often messed up make sure you have your own. Got food poisoning on Muscat to Paris flight - other than that the food tended to be quite bland. Need to give out more water on flight to combat dehydration as well. Stopping in Muscat's terminal was like a time warp back to a 1970s mall. Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Never thought I would be as happy to get back to Manila!"
Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Poor amenity kit and not as good as the usual oman Air lie flat seat"
Pros: "Good aircraft from Muscat to Bangkok"
Cons: "The food was really sad"
Cons: "My return journey was also not accepted and forced to book another ticket at Zurich airport which is unfair Please check with airlines and reimburse my money I will send all details in due course Please call or contact me on top priority."
Cons: "The boarding was cancelled due to 5 hrs before visa arrival time and forcefully called no show."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food was a joke ! The trip wS expensive at 770$ !"
Pros: "The stopover was short ."
Cons: "The food and the lack of entertainment. The plane was almost full and two children never stopped arguing loudly."
Pros: "We took off on time. Attendants were nice. Value for money."
Cons: "Lavatory I used was a bit messy. Meal option was a bit blah."
Pros: "Didn't have any issues during the 8-hour flight. It was smooth all the way"
Cons: "There was a slight delay before we took off. Pilot said it was something about documents. there was a crying baby all throughout the flight"
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "The headphones didn't work"
Cons: "1. Waiting in a closed doors transfer bus w/o AC 15+ min just in front of the plane because it wasn't ready for the passengers. (Unaceptable) 2. Flight attendant unable to pick an organized trashbag politely given to her(unaceptable) ; next time all trash will be left in the seat like all passengers do."
Pros: "The aircrafts are good and comfortable, food is acceptable and air crew is curtious"
Cons: "The tickets issued to us specified that we were allowed 2 pieces of checked luggage each piece max of 23 Kg. The check in staff refused to accept the baggage allowance as was shown in the ticket . They insisted that the agent issued the ticket wrongly and they will only allow 2 pieces weighing total 30 kg. It was embarrassing as we had brought luggage as per tickets issued. IF THE AGENT APPOINTED BY OMAN AIR HAD ISSUED A WRONG TICKET, IT IS THE PRINCIPAL WHO IS RESPONSIBLE WHICH IN THIS CASE IS OMAN AIR. IT WAS A BAD EXPERIENCE AND OMAN AIR HAS TO COMPENSATE. The entertainment screens did not work for quite some time."
Pros: "Nice Service. On ground is ok. At least people are not rude. In flight is also ok. Nothing special. That's ok for me as long as they are not rude or obnoxious."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. This is such a short flight I normally watch series. Their selection is not the best. Boarding in Muscat Airport is always a mess."
Pros: "The same... good flight"
Pros: "Hospitality and efficiency."
Cons: "There could be a drinks trolley at the back to help yourself"
Pros: "Everything was awesome!"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable. Bathroom did get dirty fast."
Cons: "The food wasn't great. Plane should've left earlier if expecting delays from incoming flights over the mountain."
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were amazing! The airline was top notch!"
Cons: "When I finally got thru customs I picked up my bag and it was all wet. Something that smelt like vinegar was spilt on it. Also when my friend who I was traveling with picked up her luggage the plastic was ripped off. That must be some rough handling they have because this was a hard plastic suitcase.. They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."
Pros: "the flight was comfy"
Cons: "some drinks!!!! NOT alcohol but like water or soda."
Pros: "Friendly staff; value for the money"
Cons: "Boarding procedures not very organized"
Cons: "Boarding is a fiasco with cebu pacific they should try zones and separate lines like japan!"
Pros: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Cons: "I missed the trip. Can you help me with the refund or part of it?"
Cons: "The flight I was booked on late so they changed my reservation to the previous flight which was late as well, still.later than my original flight . But smart move by them. The only issue was the terrible terminal building at Dumagete.."

Cons: "Stop charging passengers for water."
Cons: "The luggage took ONE HOUR to come out after the flight!!!"
Cons: "Improve on the congestion of DVO"
Cons: "They should improve tge delayed flight"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "Be ontime"
Pros: "Seat was ok but could not sit with my husband"
Cons: "Check in queue at Bangkok Airport was very long nd took ages"
Pros: "Quick and fast boarding"
Cons: "So when I bought the tickets. I paid for extra luggage of 40 kgs, then I unselected the assigned seating since I didn’t care where I sat, and I would rather use that money to pay for the extra luggage. I double checked several times before proceeding. At the check in counter, guess who had to pay extra because apparently the 40 kgs did not go through."
Cons: "So late, I missed a 3 hour connection."
Pros: "Boarding was organized if there is such a thing in the philippines, but at least they tried. Iloilo airport is very nice and allows more room than manila fiasco. The flight for once left early and arrived early and low and behold we had a jetway and no bus!! Luggage was off in record time"
Cons: "No recline on seats and cramming too many in to such narrow rows..its worse than a new york city bus in the 70s."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing about lastminute.com"
Cons: "Lastminute.com rebooked my outbound flight two dat past the original booked date then left the return flight the same which meant the return was before the outgoing. Then to make it worse they tried to charge me additional 80 pounds to change the return ticket."
Cons: "I had the fattish person next to me who had most of his body in my seat."
Cons: "The delay of my flight was not acceptable."
Pros: "Nice new equipment A321 and FA always nice"
Cons: "Baording is always a cattle call, they attempt to go by rows this time but still a mess of crowding and shoving. The gate announced boarding and everyone jumped, then they tried to refuse those in line making it even worse. Poor gate agents!!! Then as always they blame manila teaffic for delays....so irritating. Almost an hour late...no reason it was sunny at both airports and this schedule is set weeks ahead and they still claim heavy traffic..ridiculous"
Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"
Cons: "Too cold in the aircrat"
Pros: "No thing about this flight"
Cons: "Not good good on board they don't have variety of food no credit card accepted"
Cons: "Because of the weather delay, I made it by the skin of my teeth to my next flight. It was quite stressful waiting for my baggage to come out so I could re-check in to my next destination."
Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "The flight attendants on the plane were very good very sweet very attentive. I also enjoyed the fact that we got a free meal without a ticket."
Cons: "The service at the airports for your company was abysmal to say the least. The fact that I had to pay over $100 for my bag to be checked was absolutely ridiculous. The personnel for Cebu Pacific at the Denspar airport were borderline hostile, racially discriminating and nasty. If you’re airport employees were half as good as the in-flight attendance I would fly with your company again as of right now you couldn’t pay me to get on your airplane."
Pros: "Cebu pacific is one of airlines who prescribe to a pay as you go additude. Be prepared to pay for everything after you pay for your ticket 7kg carry on max limits pay for the food you may or may not eat, and if you get cold easily bring warm clothes. No joke this was the coldest airplane I have ever been on in my 15 years of travel, so cold in fact that upon taking off you can hear the ice crystals breaking loose and traveling through the air system. I am going to say that the plane was in good condition and the flight attendants and pilot crew seem to be well trained as well as very polite."
Pros: "No hassles check in"
Cons: "Limited luggage"
Cons: "Despite baggage being checked through from HK to Davao, Cebu offloaded luggage in Manila and failed to forward."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "Worst seats I have ever sat in, took a red eye out of Dubai and the cabin lights were on for over half the flights."
Cons: "No food, no check in luggage but extra fee, no movies, no , no blanket."
Pros: "Flight was ahead of time. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. No information about refund"
Cons: "I BOUGHT ANOTHER TICKET WITH PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, WHICH LEFT LATER, TODAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM. NO EXCUSES. SO I PAID TWICE FOR A TICKET TO MANILA FROM BANGKOK. THE BIG PROBLEM IS EVEN WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT WAY AHEAD OF TIME, THE CEBU PACIFIC PEOPLE, JUST DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT GIVE A DAM. THIS HAS COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. AND TIME AND STRESS, THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT LET ME ON THE PLANE. I GAVE THEM THE INFORMATION, THEY NEEDED. THE SAME INFORMATION AS I GAVE PHILIPPINE AIRLINES, THAT I DID FLY WITH. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT I RECEIVED TODAY."
Pros: "No fuss,simple budget air travel"
Cons: "Nothing,does the job for a 1 hr flight"
Cons: "Its a shame—Singapore is a first-class city and its people are beautiful; except for one zealous person who made it her goal to ruin Singapore. Cebu Pacific (MNL) required our umbrella to be checked-in without incurring additional expense since it does not make sense to charge us because the umbrella price is way less than the shipping cost. However, Cebu Pacific (SGN) Counter Supervisor was rigid and unprofessional; she wouldn’t listen to reasons and logic. She said that this is SGN and not MNL and therefore, its totally different. She was correct because we were able to go home and security did not say anything about our umbrella. Basically, we do not have to check-in our umbrella in the first place. But the Supervisor was adamant and combative regarding our umbrella. We told her we’ll just throw it in the trash can instead of shipping it."
Cons: "Check-in, baggage allowance - virtually none, snacks drinks none, will never use again"
Pros: "we had a very tight connection from landing in Manila to catching our flight to El Nido. Cebu's team lead us through the check in process to expedite and save time and even ordered a special shuttle bus for us to take between terminals at the airport. I was very impressed and will be telling everyone I know how great Cebu is."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled because of weather condition while we were at the boarding gate, they didn't care about compensations or consider not risking putting the passengers under last minute pressure, at least they should've notified us ahead of time, they automatically rolled us in the next flight, however, they didn't confirm if the next flight will be cancelled or not. In order to make sure I can catch my connecting flights, I booked another flight from Legazpi to Manila on a different airline, in addition, I had to pay the hotel booking cancellation fees in Manila, since these fees can only be waved if I cancelled 24hrs in advance. Moreover when I asked for my ticket refund, they made a big deal out of it and after a ruff struggle they agreed to refund me, but whatever the refund amount was, it barely covers anything of what I had to pay for a new ticket+ 1 extra night stay in Legazpi + hotel cancellation fees in Manila, I ended up paying 400USD in total while I only got around 50USD ticket refund from them, and of course, add to that the stress and hassle I went through in doing this!"
Pros: "They put me in front row...nice crew"
Cons: "Interesting condensation coming from plane due to intense humidity - looked like smoke in entire plane!"
Pros: "Landing was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours!"
Pros: "Crew is great"
Cons: "Ticket agents are awful. Very horrible on baggage"
Pros: "Late arrival of plane meant knock on problems with air traffic in manila... over an hour late ... cebu airlines ok but system poor"
Cons: "Unfortunately delays caused by late arrival of plane - 1 hr late"
Pros: "Nice modern plane, great crew."
Cons: "Modern compact seats not very comfortable, and very little kneeroom. But fair prices, so overall a good value."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor food options. Seats were cramped for me (I’m 6 foot tall). No logical boarding organisation (free for all)."
Pros: "All - Competitive price and service"
Cons: "Nothing - No negative experience with CP"
Pros: "I'm so sick of this HORRIBLE Airline,. I could not check in online and even called them, they said oh SORRY SIR ,( TYPICAL ) AND WANTED ME TO PAY $595 for my bags on a $290 one way ticket,. Never AGAIN WILL I FLY THESE IDIOTS AIRLINE"
Cons: "I like my choice to fly another airline and that I'm able to deny payment for the flight thru my Credit Card,. ASIANA airlines for $300 and bags included"
Cons: "One of the tightest legroom. Said they were giving out sim cards but never got one even after asking for one. It was ok that we didn't get one but not ok that 2 crew members said they will get us one and never did. If you don't have it, just honestly say you don't have enough. Or just don't offer it in the first place!! No drinks... not even a glass of water without having you pay for it."
Cons: "The gate on our boarding pass initially indicated E4 and it was changed to E2 without any notification. The gate was not manned by any airline staff and only the assigned gate had bathrooms. Basically, you have to hold your bodily functions in the general waiting area at the Jakarta airport. Flight was supposed to depart at 12:30pm and a gate change was announced at midnight. We had to move to another part of the terminal, Gate D6 I believe and had to go through security check again. Another badly managed budget airline."
