Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "Crew will do anything to help"
Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"
Cons: "crew isnt very careful in serving the food but its not really that bad. but im just comparing it from my previous flights so i think that group of FA's can do better. And the food was served a bit a late so they dont have time to serve hot beverage anymore."
Pros: "Crew were great. Flight was not full."

Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Boarding needs better management."
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"

Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."

Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear.

Cons: "Everything was outstanding"
Pros: "Snack was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight was delayed (both ways) and after not having flown Thai Airways for many years, I would have thought the meaning of "TG = Tomorrow Go" has been improved to "Today Go" The boarding process literally remains back in the "stone age" compared to the total modern aviation advancements!!"
Cons: "The boarding process could and must be improved!! What's the point of having modern technology like self-automated boarding machines installed at the airport and not using them? People should be boarded by zoning instead of letting people acted like this is the last flight out of Saigon!!"
Pros: "Crew very good Seat getting old uncomfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Movies selection has been almost the same since a few months , some World movies never changed after 3/4 months"
Pros: "new plan and equipments are good"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Complimentary polaroid Photo taking for families or kids or couples and friends. Photo can be placed in a special thai aiways frame for memory. If this is done while the flight is preparing for take off l, its gives a great start for the trip. Gifts for kids?"

Pros: "The service was great as was the space."
Cons: "I would have liked a window seat."
Pros: "New plane, nice. Entertainment system is good but limited selection"
Cons: "Gate very far away, a good 700 meter walk! And very long immigration queue."
Pros: "Ok plane, food was fine too"
Cons: "No gate at home airport when there's heavy rain? Even budget airlines pay for a gate, why not a star alliance member?"
Cons: "Super delayed."
Pros: "The in-flight service is better than others."
Cons: "The check-in process at Heathrow is a chaos. I’m not sure who’s responsible, between the Airlines or the Airport. It sholuld arrange separate rows between those already check-in online and the others. I also saw the officials let some (1-5) group of (3-8) people each bypass the long queue, without reasons. The seat and leg space are so narrow that the direct 10+hour- flight is not so comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. A warm meal was a pleasant surprise on such a short flight."
Cons: "Seat too narrow. I was in a bulkhead seat with solid armrests. It was the tightest seat I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Hard to see screen for the movie. You see your own reflection too much. Flight was delayed a a half hour."
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system didn't worked half of flight, gate in BKK at end of airport (long walk)"
Pros: "Food served is nice especially the croissants"
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: "The movie"
Cons: "Late again byt not much"
Pros: "On time and service"
Cons: "Quite a bit odd for food from dhaka"
Pros: "Friendly crews."

Cons: "The entertainnent system never worked, even after rebboting"
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and helpful. There was a variety of entertainment options, with recent films, tv shows and music options to keep you busy. I also thought the food options were good, too. You didn't go too long without being asked about a new beverage or meal, pretty satisfying."
Cons: "The comfort could have been better. I find myself a little fidgety on flights anyway but I also had a sore back and couldn't seem to find a way to get completely comfortable, but I have had worse!"
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment limited, arrival in BKK terrible, offloading a 747 with busses is a no go. Long waiting time in plane."
Pros: "Wow, a 747 offloaded by busses, what a ridiculous idea!"
Cons: "Wow, a 747 offloaded by busses, what a ridiculous idea!"
Pros: "According to the price, services was perfect"
Pros: "We didn’t crash!"
Cons: "Old plane (747). Not very attentive staff, I had to ask for a blanket 4 times before I got one. This certainly isn’t acceptable in business class. My meal choice wasn’t available. And I had to pay $50 to change my flight to a different day (again not acceptable for a business class ticket. I’ll avoid Thai airways wherever I can from now on. #avoid When I rang the Singapore Thai office they were unable to change my ticket to a new date and kept pushing me back to the online travel agent. Called Thai in Bangkok and they did it on the spot. Very inconsistent service."
Cons: "Bad onboard service"
Cons: "Plane was late and no new time was announced. Boarding was like everyone for himself. Plane itself and crew were ok."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and accommodating. 747 is still one of the best planes out there, quiet, powerful, and lands softly."
Cons: "Seats in business do not fully recline, which is hard to sleep on. Also the seats are very hard and uncomfortable for business. Not much padding to sleep on."
Pros: "Awesome flight with great deal from kayak and thai airways. Overall service was awesome and will definately try again"
Pros: "They provided metal cutlery for the meals (in plastic wrapping, just like with disposable plastic forks and such), which seemed like overkill but added a tiny touch of premium feel."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system is kind of archaic, but it works."
Pros: "Staff, service, and entertainment!"
Cons: "The food was very average. I have flown Thai Airways many times before and I remember the food being better."

Pros: "I love the food especial Thai food. The air craft crew are very helpful."
Cons: "My friend request for extra ice cream and the crew rejected her with very loud tune."
Cons: "My sister died and I wanted to change the date of my ticket and Thai would not cooperate at all, on the other hand Delta changes all my tickets so I could return to the states with no additional fees. Thai said economy call was full on my requested change date but they had Business Class tickets available, and I ask if I could apply the cost of my economy ticket amount to the Business Class ticket and they said no, that I could only purchase a new Business Class ticket. Real accommodating when you have an emergency."

Pros: "Food and service from staff onboard the flight. Seat was also very comfortable. Overall very good"
Cons: "At check in the staff felt while flying business class that my carry-on bag was too heavy so they asked me to take papers out and just walk with these. FYI I always take a lot of paper with me to read and as it was a 16 hour flight to Taipei and a subsequent flight of 1.5 hours to HongKong that is what I did. Was really ridiculous and upsetting to get treated for a one wat flight payong $2750 like thos"

Cons: "I wish the aircraft's seats were a bit wider. (I'm not getting bigger, but space seems to be at a premium.)"
Pros: "Warm service from check-in to destination. Counter staff arranged, without hesitation, upon my casual asking if could change to window seating and she did it with a smile (though I've web-checked in already). Service on flight was heart-warming too!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants, great attentiveness. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."
Pros: "Cabin and crew and ground staff are well mannered."
Cons: "They have awful customer service and caused me to miss a flight and have to purchase all new flights. I will never use them again."
Cons: "No entertainment during the flight."
Cons: "We were sitting in the back so by the time the flight attendant got to us, we didn’t have a choice with the food. Food was bad."
Pros: "the lighting and mood of entrance is comforting and exciting, feels like a trustworthy aircraft. the crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "absolutely nothing of sustinence for vegetarians, every other airline I have been on has fantastic in flight food menus, there is no menu on china airlines and I was unaware I had to notify the flight before hand. there was a sandwitch leftover they were able to give me but the bread smelt like beer and tasted so bad, the quality of the food in general is very poor and should be reconsidered. (orange juice is not juice but a drink)"

Cons: "There was a delay with this flight or the previous one and we weren't told much"

What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."

Cons: "I have wheel chair and the crew of PAL is ignore it they dont like the same with Asiana and Korean Air they approuching us..."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was attentive. The main flight attendant knew our names and greeted us as we entered and left the plane by name. The food was very good and wine pairing appropriate."

Cons: "Long lines at check-in counter. We waited for almost 2 hours!"

Pros: "Helpful staffs"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. Alcohol included."
Cons: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"

Cons: "Waited an hour and a half waiting for the plane to go to the gate"

Cons: "mla airport is at its worse"
Pros: "food, crew, comfort were Okay. In-flight entertainment could use more improvement -- probably more asian content or travel-related shows."
Cons: "the 6-7 hour delay was handled very poorly -- lack of information; no airline manager so the answer all passengers received were "We are sorry but we aren't in a position to answer that." When asked about possible compensation, the ground crew answered "We'd have to wait until we reach Manila (which was at least 17 hours away)" -- This just made passengers more irritated and the ground crew were forced to call airport security. boarding very unorganized on our return flight."
Pros: "great new plane."
Pros: "Attentive, polite,, cheerful attendants, very service oriented. Very nice airplane and nice business class at very good price."
Pros: "Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances."
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."
Pros: "I love the service from the crew! I lost count after 6 glasses of coke and orange drinks. They had a lot of patience! I loved also the flight, there wasn’t or no air turbulence."
Cons: "The Manila international airport still needs improvement when checking in, the lines were incredible long and there wasn’t any space to walk around in terminal 2 PAL international departures. If you have big shoulders..you are better off with business class, the seats are for slimmer people."
Pros: "Nearly empty flight and was able to move to different seat for added comfort"
Cons: "Selection of inflight entertainment was very limited. Boarding was very unorganized at the gate"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "People trip me indiscriminate"
Pros: "Loved that the crew boarded everyone accorsig to seat zone starting with the backmost part... enabled speedy boarding and you'd think this would be SOP but many PAL flights don't do this. Always happy with the refurbished aircraft and selection of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online due to the kind of ticket I bought. Was willing to pay for bulkhead seats but had no chance due to unavailability."
Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "One hour delay starting and 45 min. at the end, no Gate available."
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: "Put us on separate seat...we should seating close"
Pros: "philippines air is great! very easy and accomodating"

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."
Cons: "There is a lot to improve on with their food. As the main Philippine carrier, they should make adobo in the best possible and original way that returning residents will immediately feel they are "home"."
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
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?"

The phone numbers listed on the website were not available to call and I could not get in touch with them when I needed questions answered."
Pros: "The services was excellent. Everyone was polite. Overall was very good experience."
Pros: "If you have a carry on bag only, then this airline is fine. If you have to check your bag, I would suggest not even considering it. I have flown this airline for the last 8 years in business travel, with no issues. For some reason in the last two years, the level of efficiency in baggage transporting has tanked. In the last 3 trips, my-or my colleague's bags have been lost FIVE TIMES. One time it took FOUR days (on a 6 day trip) to get our luggage, this time we received our luggage 2 hours before departing for the airport to head home. Unfortunately this is one of the few airlines that actually flies the route we need to take. I'll revise my entire trip to avoid taking this airline in the future."
