Cons: "Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking)."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "the space of the seat is too narrow. the announcers can barely be heard. White bread at meals should be eliminated and whole wheat or more nutritious grains should be used."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The flight left Singapore 4 hours late. It caused me to not be able to take my fiancé to the movies before bed. I also only got 6 hours of sleep last night instead of 8. They didn't have any in flight entertainment for a 4 hour flight. It was really bare bones and it was slightly more expensive than other choices."
Cons: "Wish the seats were bigger."

Pros: "the flight attendant service, politeness and attentiveness."
Cons: "PAL - Philippine (airlines) ALWAYS Late!!! all of my flights from HNL to MNL to MNL to SINGapore to MNL and back to HNL were delayed!"
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Pros: "i would like to suggest that if there be any chance that vegetarian meals for vegetarians can also be served during international flights. Thank you so much! So far so goog! Keep up!"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"

Cons: "Loud and weight restrictions were not goodl"
Pros: "Fast checkin process"
Cons: "I'm 6'5" and the standard economy seats are much to small to even fit my knees. I little had to spend 3+ hours with my knees pulled up to even fit and it was the most uncomfortable flight experience of my life. The staff on board would not accommodate at all and told me it was airline policy to not allow me to switch seats. Pathetic! Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "i was upset because at first I asked Philippine airline to kindly assist my mom and my auntie who are senior citizen throughout their journey going to Philippines...my mom is her first time to back to Philippines and kinda don't know what to do..I called Philippine airline to asked for help and kindly assist them and they said they will..when my mom came back and ask her about it she said it's terrible.."
Cons: "My mom paid additional 400 dollars to make changes in her fight because at first they should stay in hotel that Philippine airline promise to provide for them but at the end no hotel was been provided. My mom is senior citizen and she don't have relative in Manila to stay that day so instead of saving her money she was forced to pay $400 because she end up in no choice!"

Cons: "So late, I missed a 3 hour connection."
Pros: "In time departure"
Pros: "Very clean"
Cons: "Most of the Cebu Pacific flights feel like a greyhound bus"
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."

Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were delayed by 2+ hours"
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: "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: "We boarded the plane just on time. I wasn't expected ot would be that food."
Cons: "We landed pretty late. ETA was 11:25pm. We landed almosg 12midnight."
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: "Really cool"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Extra charge for luggage is so expensive even you already paid for extra luggage allowance."
Cons: "Check in process is not so user friendly. A lot of missing sign for the next step."
Cons: "Was not able to board as the flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Accomodating flight attendant"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "3 hour delay without s good explanation....after arrival in Bangkok wait 30 minutes before leaving aircraft....madness..."
Cons: "The staffs are very rude and not helpful at all. They cancelled my flight just because i did not book the flight out of philippines and had to wait in the airport for 5 hours to get my baggae after they cancelled my flight. Very very dissapointing."
Pros: "Nothing. No food no entertainment no good service. Nothing good at all and they also take alot money for there mistake"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Never again"
Pros: "The only positive of the flight, was that they accidentally gave me exit row seating."
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid almost $100 on bag fees for one basically empty check bag. They do not offer anything to drink on the flight at all. Not even the un-bottled water. If you want anything to drink you have to pay them for it. The entire flight all they did was try to pedal their over priced junk. The best part of the experience was getting off the plane and knowing that I won't ever fly with them again."
Cons: "No basic newspapers available."
Pros: "On time but too much time to check in and had to go to several counters."
Cons: "Poor service for mobility impaired passenger. Online luggage info limited andconfusing, Incorrect charge for luggage with no consequences for airline. No wheelchair ordered even after request. Check in took well over an hour and we almost missed the flight. Not impressed with Singapore Airport if the passenger care is so bad. Luggage costs doubled the cost of the flight. Other places un Singapore, and especially the public transit system, were proactive for physically handicapped people."
Cons: "Staff was rude again, there is no room, they made us remove our ear buds for landing. You have no bag room in the back because the crew uses them instead. Won’t be using them again if I can avoid it"
Pros: "General ok"
Cons: "Plane full...good for jetstar but not good for me travelling with 2 infant on lap..."
Cons: "I was thirsty at the waiting area. The staff threw away the water I just bought. I can’t drink in public fountains. In US we can eat and drink while waiting to board. I was hoping there would be complimentary water but there’s none. I was instructed to surrender my carry on underseat luggage before I boarded the plane. They didn’t tell me I had to pick it up at the baggage claim. I have all my important stuff there and it’s not locked. That was not right."
Pros: "Crew are ok."
Cons: "No entertainment at all on a 4 hour flight. At least some funny clips or comedy would be suffice. A complimentary drink and some snacks would do too. Price is very deceiving. Luggage price should be included in the price. You book your flights unknowingly that you have to pay for a seat and luggage. leg space is very confined for a 6foot person. Would not recommend this."
Cons: "We had to pay over $165 USD for luggage. On a 7hr flight we cldnt even get water w/o paying for you"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "you have to buy water ....fiirst airline i have seen not to give water for free"
Pros: "Attendants were efficient & pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding instructions could have been repeated....got a little jammed up. Maybe it was more a passenger issue."
Cons: "I lost my baggages on transit flight, it was horrible, my holiday was ruined, they brought the luggages after 2 days"
Pros: "It was fast and eay"
Cons: "The plane seats was a bit dirty. There were lots of left over crumbs on the seat. Bathroom is somewhat dirty too with staines"
Pros: "The airline was very cold."
Cons: "I was frozen for 3.5 hours of flight."
Pros: "not too much"
Cons: "one checked bag for an international flight is extra. I flew on JetStar airlines from Singapore to Manila I made a purchase $35 body spray with in the airport in Tokyo. I was told before boarding my JetStar flight that I could not keep my gifts because of the size of the bottles. I do not believe that this is fair due to the fact that I connected directly from Tokyo to Singapore. When I purchased the gifts in Tokyo I was allowed to board the flight. Is it anyway possible that I can resolve this issue?"
Cons: "Staff helping with check-in did not feel very qualified"
Pros: "The cost was efficient."
Cons: "The food is terrible and overpriced."
Pros: "I liked that they are on time and the flight crew is so diverse. On board, we had multilingual attendants."
Cons: "Well, not much since I get what i paid for. Probably I'll comment on the uniforms of the crew. It'll be much cooler if it were white, not black with orange and red finishes on it."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew were nice."
Cons: "Nothing is complementary, including water."
Pros: "Best way for a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food was nothing special. Very nice pictures but not the food"
Pros: "Nothing to like about this Airline."
Cons: "Baggage rates are a scam! No clear statement to "pre-book" baggage! Paid tripple there rates because booked bags at the gate, like normal people do! Was then treated terribly!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "The flight was pleasantly uneventful. Cabin crew was nice and efficient. Didn't order any food so I can't rate that. Neither can I rate the entertainment since it was a short flight without such. Say at exit row so had comfortable legroom."
Cons: "Check-in was terrible. The kiosks were a huge fail. Most passengers then had to queue at regular check-in counters which were only 2. Took so long since they apparently all of a sudden don't check you in if someone else purchased your ticket. In my case my brother bought mine. They wanted to see the physical card used for purchase, along with the card owner of course. After a long wait it turns out there's no issue with my ticket since it wasn't purchased directly from jetstar. In such a case, they don't care how the ticket was bought. Their policy sucks. The self check-in kiosks are useless. I will avoid Jetstar at all costs from now on. Never have I experienced such horrible service in any airline before."
Pros: "Changi Airport will never disappoint, and regarding Jetsat I got what I payed for. It was a good flight so far."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Crew was more in the way during boarding than they were helpful."
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Long queue"
Cons: "Poor service and poor customer service in and out"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time, more or less"
Cons: "Got charged for changing my seat to an exit row seat, though half the flight was empty."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. So if u don't pay for water you don't get it. It conserves but at the same time, is the company that poor??"
Cons: "Nothing complimentary is offered. Not even water for a 3 hour flight. The flight attendants were ok, if that. As one was making announcements he used double entendres that are not necessarily family friendly. Excessive and unprofessional. We will definitely choose NOT to fly this airline again."
Cons: "I booked my flight and Jetstar changed my flight times. The new times would not work with my schedule. Therefore, I had to re - book with another airline at almost double the price. I never got a chance to use the Jetstar services."
Pros: "Service was good and thorough. Not a hitch."
Cons: "Improve on in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Low prices"
Cons: "Seats are too close together for westerners to fit comfortably... heaven help any pacific islanders!"
Pros: "No complaints! Good value for money."
Pros: "Good service--quick on and off the plane with no issues."
Cons: "Baggage costs on this airline are very high--not actually a cheap fare."
Pros: "Nice crew. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Too long layover Not even one free check in baggage."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and overall was an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Boarding gates changing were quite a hassle however that's life"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine"
Cons: "Wasnt sure how much luggage i would have until the day of travel and found the paying at check in quite alot more expensive than paying online"
Cons: "let me use backpack as carry on from Perth then charged me a lot and made me check it in Thailand. Very inconsistent considering the pack weighed the same each way."
