Pros: "great new plane."
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)."

Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Pros: "Birding was great. Punctual flight."

Cons: "Slightly limited entertainment . Mabuhay lounge at Manila's average."

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."
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"
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: "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: "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"."

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"
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."

Cons: "Nice seats"
Cons: "They should giving out headphones for business class to use the entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours"
Cons: "The plane was old but the flight was inexpensive"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Pros: "Airport, sea side"
Cons: "Did not departure on time"
Pros: "Malayasia airlines made me sad since they left my luggage in KL on my trip to Shanghai today. The agent in Shanghai was really bad to handle situation. He doesnt care at all. No one from Malaysia Airlines showed off to explain the situation. Me and my wife dont have any clothes to change. Very bad"
Cons: "Malaysia airlines need to Change the behavior of the staffs in shanghai especially the agent or the station manager of MAS"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "At least, they let me know the first delay but no further information was given to the 2nd delay. Also, neither the ground not on board staff seemed to be interested in Passagiers. Was a short flight interrupted by diverse visual ads and PRs.."
Pros: "We paid for extra luggage for check in but we were allowed to carry them on board due to the short stopover duration of the connecting flight. Thanks for the much needed flexibility!"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no head phones supplied and the food was burnt."

Pros: "On-time departure and on-time arrival."
Cons: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"

Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"
Cons: "I fell asleep during the meal serving. Instead of waking me up or putting my meal on my tray, it wasn't served at all."
Cons: "3 hour delay Food quality could have been better"
Pros: "Easy to get my boarding pass at the Changi airport. Seating was nice. Not many passengers in this flight."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty."
Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."
Pros: "The flight was fairly typical. However, it left on time and arrived on time. This was a positive."
Cons: "As usual, the flight was completely full. Everyone carries on as many bags as allowed and there is no bin space for all the luggage. I bring only my briefcase and had to search for space."
Pros: "It was a very good flight ."
Pros: "Flight was on time, good value airline"
Cons: "Kayak did not book through airline, would prefer to use known site before paying $$$"
Pros: "Prompt flight and service was good."
Cons: "I never got to take the flight. Tried to cancel multiple times with VAYAMA prior to 31 March, but they never responded."
Pros: "Delicious food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Clean and entertainment good!"
Cons: "Food is mediocre, even for airplane food."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
Pros: "Seat leg room seemed better than US carriers. Food was not exciting."
Cons: "Cabin crew very n8ce."
Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."
Pros: "I was not accepted by the airline and I didn't get any assistance aside from getting out of the airport. Tried calling and all they can say is we cannot do anything"
Cons: "Travellers should be informed about the restrictions and guided on what should be done."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and very friendly crew"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Smooth check in"
Cons: "That the in-flight wifi really is free instead of making the passengers to pay"
Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "On time"
Pros: "correct priority of boarding respected luggage handling very fast"
Cons: "quality of food"
Pros: "Nothing. We arrived safe"
Cons: "First of all it left late with no explanation. One hour late. Crew did almost nothing. No food at all unless preordered. Not even awater. Lights out for no reason. It was as t even 7:30 when they dimmed the long guts. Only one bathroom in the back and we never saw someone go forward so we were t sure if there was one in the front. Very tight seats."
Cons: "Notification of delayed flight wrong."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs"
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Flight delayed, landed at 2.00am+"
Pros: "Assistance in check in"
Cons: "After early boarding still wait like 30 min plus seating in plane"
Pros: "Price. Number of flights."
Cons: "The 7kg hardline AFTER doing the document check nearly caused me to miss my flight thus potentially missing a connection. If AsiAsia are going to keep to this 7kg hardline they really need to do it across all airports and do it during the document check so the number of queues costumers are subjected to are minimized. I did purchase extra weight when purchasing the ticket however that weight MUST be in checked bags only. No margin here for discussion. Perhaps HotSeat passengers are less scrutinized??? This all may be just some transitional pains here and other airlines may follow the same model but in my 200+ flights on Nok Air this has NEVER happened. In fact, they (Nok) have NEVER weighed my carry on bag. Such a shame as the rest of the flight experience was above average. This hardline approach will be an issue if they continue until they beat their customers into taking or leaving it in my opinion. First AirAsia flight for me so the vets reading this will be smiling quietly to themselves ;-)"
Pros: "On time and very friendly helpful staff. Especially ground crew"
Pros: "we arrived almost half hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Captain address on delayed update and get free meal"
Cons: "Initialy no staff at gate to update the delay. Passenger left wondering. Luckly received alert from Kayak.com on the delay. Received sms at 9.05pm after 1 hour delay from Airasia."
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "13 hour delay worst flight ever"
Pros: "Efficient boarding....took off early in both directions!"
Pros: "Clean aircraft"
Cons: "Two flights in a row behind schedule ; messed up my vegetarian pre ordered food selections in both flights"
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
Pros: "convenient flight times"
Cons: "i hated that there are no human beings in sight. i hate all the machines. i hate that you dont employ people. if you want to give jobs to machines then i what use are you? i would much rather pay more and be greeted by a friendly human face. you are all fools and i will seek other airlines in future"
Pros: "He flight boarded on tkme"
Cons: "The flight sat on the runway for ages and there was no explanation as to why we took off and landed so late."
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The Aircraf was brand new"
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Cons: "constant flight delays"
Pros: "Nice clean plane and efficient staff"
Cons: "We Pre ordered (and paid for) meals when we booked our tickets, having flown Air Asia before we knew what was good and what wasn't. Somehow our orders were lost and we got the 'default' meal on all flights which was sweet and sour chicken meatballs which was almost as awful as it sounds. We heard the same thing happen to the lady in the seat behind us. Staff pretty much ignored our complaint. There's also a weird process with check in where you get processed into a small lounge Pre flight with no food or shops, there doesn't appear to be a reason for this other than making you sit somewhere cramped and uncomfortable for an hour before your 9 hour flight."
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Late. As always."
Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Pros: "quick check-in and no-nonsense."
Cons: "They were fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "The delays......"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this flight - couldn't ask for more! Checking in at Hong Kong airport was great and fast."
Cons: "Not enough directions signage when arrived in KLIA2."
Pros: "Pilots made a great effort to cut down the delay, kudos to them."
Cons: "No organization whatsoever in boarding procedures. No announcement made on the flight being delayed, only a message passed down from passengers at the very front. Plane was not cleaned and emptied of rubbish before we were boarded. Most shocking of all, the plane was being refueled while passengers were boarding. All in all, pretty appalling. I take budget flights 2-3 times a year and this is the worst experience I've had with budget carriers (including the European budget carriers with dirt cheap fares and sometimes non-existence customer service)."
Pros: "Staff, flight, seats, etc. were all good. We will fly Air Asia more in the future."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Everything went as seamless as a flight can be."
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Literally!"
Cons: "Delayed for more than 9 hours, which ruined a complete day of my trip. When inquired from local office, they were clueless and was really rude. We could not do the web checking as there was a error in the site and we ended up paying more than 3 times what we were supposed to pay for baggage."
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Check in staff was extremely rude, and extorted us for RM 20 for checking in 59 minutes before the flight instead of the supposedly required 60 minutes. Their policies are outrageous, arbitrary and not stated anywhere."
Pros: "Ease of web checkin but it took too long to drop off luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Had to buy food including all beverages."
Pros: "Great service and amazing food !"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "All food and drinks were sold at additional cost, not even small snacks or water included in the price of the flight ticket."
Pros: "Same as for earlier flight"
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Cons: "Rather uncomfortable seating - very little legroom, and seat angle promotes back pain."
Pros: "Price was great and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "All food and even water cost money. The check in line took extremely long. The seat was not padded enough so I was sitting on a lump the whole trip"
Cons: "Seats that recline and quieter announcements especially the game"
Pros: "Nothing.the cebu pacific employee told me that my flight was changed from 12pm to 6pm when I checked in but I did not have any notification. He said that he can get me in, in an earliest flight they have and only to find out that the flight they he wanted me in is my flight and ask money."
Cons: "Screen employees and make sure they don’t deceive people."
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.."
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Stop charging passengers for water."
Cons: "The luggage took ONE HOUR to come out after the flight!!!"
Cons: "They should improve tge delayed flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed the captains announcements"
Cons: "Typical one hour delay due to manila traffic...does this airline every depart or arrive on time?? Nooooo! Boarding was a cattle call as usual its a stampeed. The new 321 aircraft is crammed like cattle car, no legroom and a backpack can barely go under the seat....no recline so very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "leaving on time."
Cons: "Its a cheap airline.what do u expect?"
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."
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: "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: "I was sleepless getting on the flight, so I slept most of the way. I didn’t buy the in-flight food since I wasn’t hungry."
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: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Everything also wants money, very expensive."
Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "Flgiht staff always nice"
Cons: "The cebu gate staff were awful, uninterested, never made announcemnts and as usual it was a cattle call to board. Rows were not followed. The sandwich i had paid for was all dry bread..it was awful."
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: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"
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: "Line for check-in was terrible. Wait was more than 45 minutes just to check in."
Cons: "Despite baggage being checked through from HK to Davao, Cebu offloaded luggage in Manila and failed to forward."

Cons: "We have travelled 3 times in 2 weeks by Cebu Pacific and all flights were delayed and NOBODY gave us an announcement"
Cons: "No food, no check in luggage but extra fee, no movies, no , no blanket."
Cons: "Flight time was changed from Sunday 6pm to Monday 4am! No space between rows on the flight to Singapore, EXTREMELY incomfortable!"
Pros: "On board Staff was great. Made everyone as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Agent misquoted me overweight baggage charge by half. The service agent that had to break the news to me was horrified. I paid as much for the bag as the original flight. Seats were very tight. ( I am 6'1") Next time I will fly a regular airline for the same price that I spent. Pay for bag. Pay for insurance pay for food and drink on an international flight. So wrong."
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: "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: "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)."
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: "Seats were very thin. Could feel all movement from the person behind me on my back and bottom!"
Cons: "Both flights this trip were delayed more than an hour with no explanation"
Cons: "Plane was late on arrival so departure time was delayed and we had connecting flights and the Jetstar ppl wasn't very helpful with informing Jetstar Pacific that we'd be late... We made our connecting flight but only just"
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."
Pros: "Crew were kindly , seats very comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was veey good"
Pros: "Crew very efficient, seating comfortable compared to other Spore-KL Budget flights."
Cons: "The staff from check in counter assistance should be polite ."

Cons: "Was not able to board as the flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Accomodating flight attendant"
Pros: "Flight is good, it's Jetstar so no food or entertainment was required, flight leaves Singapore at 23:00. Sleep and wake up in Darwin"
Pros: "I managed to change my seat from a middle to a window seat and had a great view of the thunderstorms and a dark Darwin when we arrived - and lots of room. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Hassle with buying a coffee. Couldn't use AMEX card but only told that when it didn't go through.. only minor but guy should have noticed it was amex and given it back straight away."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, smooth boarding and arrival (incl baggage)"
Cons: "Automated check-in is a pain for a family. There's really no room for your legs (I'm 1.8m and no chance I don't touch the next seat) - esp for old people not to recommend as definitely not healthy to be that squeezed. Worse than any other low cost carried from a space perspective."
Cons: "No snacks"
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: "750pm flight. Hope they add mor late night flight."
Cons: "I dont have checkin luggage. Web checkin did not give me straight to gate boarding even on FasT booth. Old system allows me straight to gate."
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."
Pros: "Fast Check In and Boarding."
Cons: "Totally no services for the passenger and seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Cheerful cabin crew"
Cons: "Not much legroom"
Pros: "Board on time ."
Cons: "Crew members are not polite and the way she handle seating like , don’t know how to manage . Especially check in counter . Even though we check in as a group , she assign us like a mass ."
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: "Easy boarding and relatively smooth flight"
Cons: "Delayed waiting on the plane, however all boarded on time. Seating was tight with not much leg space and tight with the people next to you. Menu options were the usual and as it’s a shortish flight just had a light snack and drink."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "you have to buy water ....fiirst airline i have seen not to give water for free"
Cons: "I lost my baggages on transit flight, it was horrible, my holiday was ruined, they brought the luggages after 2 days"

Pros: "Cheap ticket pricing. Slightly cheaper."
Cons: "Food add-on is extremely expensive. Ridiculous!"
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?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or drink offered on flight"
Cons: "I had only one baggageto check in and was forced to pay 30 min before the boarding time."
Pros: "I'm quite upset to be informed by the airline that going to Taiwan requires minimum 6 months expiry date. When I purchased the airticket it was also not stated. In the end I have no choice but to postponed my flight until I get my passport renewed."
Cons: "The website did not informed me anything regarding my entry to Taiwan required my passport to have at least 6months minimum expiry date"
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: "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"
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."
Cons: "The service was very bad especially when I checked in my luggages. They have changed me 13400 bat Thailand for the lugged and when I checked the bill when I left. She gave me two bills only and nothing else. We were three she charged us 13400 bat why is that. We have lugged for me 2 luggages total weight 28.8 kg. Plus 15.6 kg for my friend and 20 kg for the third ticket. Why is that?"
Pros: "Low prices"
Cons: "Seats are too close together for westerners to fit comfortably... heaven help any pacific islanders!"
Pros: "Nice crew. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Too long layover Not even one free check in baggage."

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"
