Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable."
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "I definitely love Emirates' use of the A380 as it is more spacious and therefore offers a more comfortable ride. It also helps that their cabin crew were accommodating and the services offered onboard were good."
Pros: "What I like is the food served, the entertainment, and the toilet."
Cons: "What I didn’t like is some of the stewardess attitude wasn’t really good, they have the grumpy face throughout. My seat, was unable to push back, the button was gone."

Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
Cons: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."
Pros: "Overall fully satisfied with a safe journey package"
Pros: "The media system was great. I enjoyed the food and the crew was very nice."
Pros: "We love Emirates. The previous flights and crew have been amazing. Most likely due to the plane only being half full. However the service, food, comfort and entertainment are the best I have ever experienced. The staff when able are more then helpful. They are friendly and engaging. The baggage allowance is amazing as well."
Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable enough."
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized. Food wasn’t heated properly so the fish just had coagulated oil coating it."

Cons: "My entertainment set’s headphone plug doesn’t work at all. So I’m watching movie with no sound throughout the whole flight."

Pros: "Garuda Indonesia is the most reliable sky-mate so far for domestic route. Proffesional and well informed if there is something happened beyond normal."
Cons: "I'm a bit get bored with the food."
Cons: "I purchased 3 legs of a trip on-line and tried daily for 50+ days to make a seat reservation. Occasionally, a screen would appear that stated a fee would be charged. I had no problem with that and was prepared with my credit card to make payment only to be told "oops there was an error" and the transaction could not be completed. I called the Garuda contact number in the U.S. twice and was told there was nothing that could be done from the US and I would have to take care of it when I arrived in Bangkok. I probably will never fly Garuda again so it really will not be a problem."
Pros: "Staff was great, and plane was nice. Entertainment options very good."

Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "Flight was good, easy to board, friendly service, reasonably comfortable. On time."
Cons: "Having to change my ticket was a nightmare. I had to call Garuda in the U.S. and after 45 minutes, was told I had to call Indonesia who took another 45 minutes to process the change. All of this cost time and money, not only for the ticket change but for the calls."
Cons: "This was my mother in law traveling. Upon arrival in Jakarta, no Garuda staff assisted her in changing terminals for connecting flight. Security would not let her in to China Airlines entrance, because her boarding pass was from Garuda. They were telling her to go back to Garuda terminal. My wife had to contact someone at China Airlines to go find her, get her through security, and escort her to the plane which had already boarded!!"

Cons: "Boarding was late. When we got to Soekarno Hatta, it took a while before they could open the door of the plane and let everyone out because they were waiting for some equipment (the stairs i'm guessing). Then they put us in a bus which took a loooong time to get to the right terminal. I was sick at that time so this was very inconvenient."

Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"
Pros: "Boarding quick n fast"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, leg n body, space too small n my left seat is a big sizes man , right seat is a very fat man , I can’t even move . my seat don’t have headset n request one , but until reached Hong Kong I still didn’t get it n I m in plane for 4hrs doing nothing, no games no songs n no shows. Thank for your concern . Really appreciate."

Cons: "Nice flight nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed as always"
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
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."
Pros: "The new plane"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."

Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "6,5 hrs delayed"
Pros: "I did get an upgrade and saw a pleasant movie"
Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."

Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."

Cons: "Seats need better padding"
Cons: "Seats we’re tight on second flight. They had an odd foot rest protruding.....?"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Six empty seats in the “emergency row” I was not feeling well and needed the extra space.5 hours into the 13 hr long haul to Taipei, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate, they charged me $120. Bucks for the privilege. Kosher meal was unbeatable."
Cons: "This was my first time travelling with China airlines and this trip was our honeymoon so we were really excited for this trip but after flying with China Air, I dont think I will fly with them again. Flight attendants were really rude, Food was ok, There’s no selection of drinks"

Cons: "The seat pitch is quite narrow makes plane feel crowded. Flight attendant does not pay attention to the request"
Cons: "I tried to book anew flight by of an emergency at home. Instead I had to fly delta home. Lost a lot of money."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
Pros: "We liked the service provided by the crew. The pilot was excellent, as we arrived safely."
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!"

Cons: "It would be nice if the Long-Haul flights had a better selection and more recent episodes of "The Big Bang Theory!" I'm tired of watching the same three old episodes."
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)"
Pros: "Love the air plane fly with. Seat is ok , food is better compare with Americans airline industry, but no compare with Korean airline ."
Cons: "The food is small tray , nothing special , silverware is plastic not like Korean Air or AsianaAirlines are stainless. Entertaining have a lot choice . But the screen is terrible small and old look . Can’t see clear with reading glasses."
Pros: "First of all, china airlines cancelled my original flight and put me in one 6 hours earlier, I had to change around and pay for changes to my other flights to make it work. Then 3 days before I depart they cancel another flight and don't even offer me one on the same day, they didn't have any. They put me on a flight 17 hours earlier that threw my schedule so much I had to hasltle with them, book anoth r airline and lose another few hundred dollars. To say china airlines is awful and unreliable is an understatement. it is the second time this has happened to me, the appearance of cheaper fairs is never worth the trouble u will have with china airlines or any of its affiliates such and china eastern. Thy have old planes, funny rules about phone use and just awful customer service and disregard for people plans and changes that they make. Never book China airlines. You will regret it I promise you."

Pros: "Quiet cabin - no crying babies or toddlers"
Cons: "Food was terrible; will choose different airline in future for long haul trips"

Cons: "Food and seats were mediocre at best. Two of the flight attendants that we had the displeasure to experience appeared irritated and when asked for a glass of water we had to wait 30 minutes (after asking three times). On top of that, once we arrived to Tokyo they lost our luggage. We kept phoning the Tokyo desk, but then the airline went on strike and our calls were left unanswered. Japan Airlines, which handles all baggage for all carriers in and out of Narita couldn't do anything either. When they were finally operational I phoned again for two more days with no offer of compensation for additional clothing that we had to buy. Finally on the 7th day they indicated they found the luggage and it never left SF!"
Pros: "The attendants were very good on the flight and they made it worthwhile to fly there..."
Cons: "The customer service guy was not professional at all...also he was very back stabbing in his dealing with the requests...cause there were many open seats in premium economy and he claimed there were none...very bad attitude..."

Cons: "Flight Delayed."

Pros: "Free space"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff was friendly"

Pros: "Flight was on time boarding and arriving"

Cons: "On time and very Nice cabincrew"
Pros: "Left on time. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Food and service. Seat was uncomfortable."
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: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"

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: "One of the smoothest landings I’ve ever extin my life! The food was excellent- all our children ate from 17 down to 2. We were provided blankets and pillows (which you sometimes can’t get on other airlines). Would fly with them again for sure - great budget airline"
Cons: "We had about a 35 minute wait once on the plane before we could take off. Not sure why it took so long (other than they said we were number 7 for takeoff). Also once we went through airport security and sat around we had to go through security again before getting to our waiting area (or hold area) but we had to throw out our water. Not sure why seeing as we purchased the water in the airport."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."

Pros: "The staff was very helpful especially because I flew with my 5 month old son. They were very nice. The seat had enough space."
Cons: "The food was ok but could do better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
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."
Pros: "On time departure Short wait for checked luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No inflight wifi Sparce terminal, very few food options"

Cons: "One hour delay starting and 45 min. at the end, no Gate available."
Pros: "Getting onboard"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Transit at Manila was terrible. Terrible crowded airport with poor signage. Very confusing."
Cons: "Check in at Kuala was a chaos. The agents were at a lost not knowing how to handle the family in front of me. It took them more than 30 minutes to handle just one family. I think there must be something wrong with the booking system. It took me 45 minutes to complete my check in."
Pros: "Business class comfortable with friendly staff"
Cons: "Food was not good. Had to wait for 20 wheelchairs to go ahead of me when boarding. Not all those people were disabled but they ask you if you need a wheelchair and people just say yes so they can board first. It's a blatant abuse of the system."
Pros: "Staff were nice and offering drinks/water even without me asking"
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm according to one of my seatmates"
Pros: "Liked the staff, friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Ran out of food options at the back of the plane."

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?"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"
Cons: "Horrible service, delayed every leg of the flight for 2 and half hrs. Staff are very lazy and the plane was so dirty! Especially the bathroom. The food was bad also. Omg I will never take this airline again"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Wanted to upgrade & was denied due to price being promotional fare which I don't believe was explicit @ time of purchase. In any event even though I was willing to pay was denied & entire process from checkin to boarding was terrible. THEN when bags were put on conveyor they were placed with no concern & I literally saw one TEAR OPEN on the belt! Mine ended up at the wrong carousel. Lovely."
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."
