Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "PAL flights always delayed"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite. Cannot complain. The seat in Premium Economy was better than expected. Certainly worth the upgrade."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better. I don't really know what to normally expect. The cloth napkins and metal flatware were certainly appreciated."
Cons: "Terrible transfer facility in Manila. Poor security staff with bad attitudes. Poor and inadequate waiting areas"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and modern plane."
Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Pros: "Good check in and inflight crew service and attitude."
Cons: "Poor IFE (overhead LCD screens too small and no headsets provided for sound), seat quality/pitch, no wifi, poor snack quality/type (barely edible choco cupcake)"
Pros: "The steward and stewardess were very nice."
Cons: "The plane was late, making a long day much longer. Worse still, I waited another 30 minutes for the luggage, making it almost 2 hours later before I got to the hotel."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Pros: "Crew was fine, FOOD HORRIBLE, NO BLANKETS NO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM, AND WE WERE 70 MIN LATE AGAIN"
Cons: "They are never ontime, over 100 flights in 2 yrs with them and 85 % of time they are delayed and very late, usually 45 min up to 90 min i've flown 245 flights in 3 yrs, the 2nd worst airline I have to deal with,"
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor. No relatively new films . All TV programs were American. The Wi-Fi was slow at best . The crew tried hard but the attention to detail was lacking"
Pros: "All good. New plane, pleasant staff, on timr"
Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."
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: "Clean toilets."
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. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food needs to be improved, really not that great , the ice cream in biz class wasn’t even hagaan Daz , some cheap chinese brand , the entertainment was so so the seats weren’t even comfortable for biz class, when parking at the terminal they did not open the door in 1st class so it was tough to get out"
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: "Those of us in Biz Class had to be on the same bus out to plane on tarmac. No real priority boarding. Would be better to provide transport for BC out to plane first. Only aspect of trip I found unpleasant."
Pros: "Very nice attendant"
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff"
Pros: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"
Cons: "The lounge was terrible , the food was average in the lounge , no international magazines or newspaper, the plane was so so so , food mediocre, entertainment was not good either ,"
Pros: "Individual entertainment at each seat, the more leg space vs the Airbus."
Cons: "Called for assistance and was ignored 3 times. No one ever came to help. Flagged down an attendant and asked for water but never got a glass. Had to get up and go to the kitchen area to find someone to help me."
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!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane."
Cons: "They didn’t have snacks for Muslims which I had requested"
Pros: "Philippines Airlines ground staff expedited our immigration and customs clearance in MNL because of a flawed system for international transfers between terminals. We would have missed our connection despite a 2 hour connection time if not for their assistance."
Cons: "Despite having our bags tagged from TPE via MNL to DXB and a 2 hour transit window in MNL, we were forced to clear immigration in MNL, claim our bags, clear customs and then pay for taxi transfer between terminals to check in again for our PR flight from MNL to DXB. At the very least Philippines Airlines should have provided transport betweeen terminals. We will NOT transit through MNL again until this is fixed."
Pros: "Couldn't take flight - they changed the time by 2 hours and would have missed by connection to Soul / and USA. Worse yet - KAYAC passed on the reservation responsibilities to some 3rd party site and neither will get me a refund!"
Cons: "Couldn't take flight - they changed the time by 2 hours and would have missed by connection to Soul / and USA. Worse yet - KAYAC passed on the reservation responsibilities to some 3rd party site and neither will get me a refund!"
Pros: "We booked this flight months ago and made plans to meet people. We wanted to arrive early to avoid traffic but since the flight as 3 hours delayed we arrived at 5 and did not get to the hotel that was 20 miles away in 2 hours. When I am late for my flight you cancel my ticket and make me purchase a more expensive one. More than the round trip I purchased so why don't you compensate me when your delayed"
Cons: "Your tardiness and inconsiderate way of doing business. Your irresponsible attitude towards your paying customers."
Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"
Pros: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."
Cons: "They should raise the baggage allowance to 20K. People travel to Palawan from all over the world and probably would bring home more souvenirs if they had a higher baggage allowance. Otherwise flight was great."
Cons: "They do not have any entertainment such as a screen to watch something."
Pros: "Nice music while boarding. Good food."
Cons: "We boarded early yet it took 45 minutes to take off. No complaints besides that."
Cons: "The flight was delay for 3hours,the airline did not give us any updates during the delay,also nothing was offered to us(customers) in return for their delay."
Cons: "All four of my flight on Philippines Airlines were over 3 hours delayed. Nothing good about this airline. Horrible food. But the delays were beyond the pale. Do not fly this airline and if you have to, don't have a connecting flight the same day, you WILL NOT make it."
Pros: "The crews are nice."
Cons: "The plane was shaking and gave me nauseas"
Cons: "Departure was delayed by more than 1 hour"
Pros: "Philippine airlines was a great airline to travel with, with friendly staff good food comfortable seats and lots of entertainment options for the flight there and back will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin staff. Still the most covenient flight to and from the Philippines."
Cons: "The line at JFK. There we not enough seats for passengers. Sink was clogged in one restroom and remained so even after the "technical" layover at YVR."
Pros: "When you check in your flight from San Francisco to Manila it is very hard to get the seat assignment ahead I'm not sure why people are always nice when checking-in"
Cons: "It's impossible to get ahold of a live person when traveling if you do not go to the airport to speak to somebody who can't seem to get anybody to pick up the phone I don't know why"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "flight delayed without a heads up. no entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, though I wish they were given more information on boarding time due to the late arrival of the plane. The flight was half empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "The food was abysmal. I chose the beef option — a small lump of "beef" that was overcooked and under sauced, accompanied by a sad pied of steamed broccoli and a disproportionately large portion of white rice. The quinoa salad was passable, but the "peach cobbler" dessert course was a flavorless mass of gelatinous goo."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Service was bad, delayed flight, etc."
Cons: "Service was bad, tv was broken, delayed flight, etc."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
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: "Just an average airline nothing special"
Cons: "I was 2.5 kg over my carry on and they charged me 100 dollars no other option was given they told me I would throw things away to save money"
Cons: "They left my luggage behind. But I got it back the next day on the first flight out at no expense. The flight was slightly delayed - no fault to PAL, just a couple of super-late passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then delayed again, and then cancelled because of an equipment issue and curfew. We were then bused 1.5 hours to larger airport for another delayed flight. I had scheduled a six hour layover in Manila. As it turned out I practically missed my connecting flight. I was also greatly annoyed by the lack of information being conveyed and that is seemed all the airlines employees just stood around, not working."
