    Cebu Pacific Economy (short haul)

    on: A320

    5.1

    The boarding gate at manila NAIA T3 was altered about 45 minutes before timetabled departure which was a pain as it meant quite a long return walk with no travelators. Boarding was fairly quick for the 171 passengers. Most were Filipino with a smattering of Chinese, Singaporeans and about six ...

    This flight was uneventful save for the friendly service delivered by the cabin crew. Nothing was too much trouble. Boraidng was very slow and annoyingly done in two steps: first we were coralled into an area (but without a further security check), then actual boarding occurred. The flight ...

    Melbourne - Manila This flight was pretty uneventful. Philippine Airlines used to only use the A340 or for a while the up to date Boeing 777-300ER on Melbourne and Sydney flights. Timekeeping was good: we departed about 10 minutes late and arrived Manila 15 minutes late after the usual go around ...

    Philippine Airlines Economy

    on: A340-300

    6.6

    The flight was almost 65 per cent full with the vast majority travelling economy. I boarded about 15 minutes before scheduled departure. The aircraft was ex Iberia and had refurbished, older style business class seats while the economy seats had also had some recent attention. There was no ...

    Qantas Economy

    on: A380-800

    4.5

    This flight was mercifully little more than half full but the checkin girl still gave me a terrible seat on the upper deck right against a bulkhead. I moved, and later transferred to the lower deck where I more or less had two seats to myself. The seats have thin, weight saving but backache ...

    Qantas Premium economy

    on: A380 (Config. 2)

    4.6

    For the first time when checking in, I used a very slow ATM-like machine that asked numerous questions and which was extremely slow in its response times. Other passengers were having to recommence the process at times. I then went to bag drop but was unable to change my middle seat in the main ...

    2.1

    Boarding was slow with only one contractor checking us through towards the aerobridge. There was a horrible continual loud noise as the tug attached to the Airbus A320. Pushback was late due to other aircraft in the vicinity. Midway through the flight the captain announced 'good news, bad ...

    Philippine Airlines Economy

    on: B777-300ER

    8.0

    The flight was relatively 'open' (an airline euphemism for 'empty') so we pushed back early and took off fairly quickly after easy boarding. Lunch was served too early, some 50 minutes after takeoff when it was earlier than 12 noon Australian time. It was satisfactory with the fish being hot and ...

    This flight arrived late from Melbourne but there was nothing to reflect that on the flight arrivals screens, strangely. The ground staff were uncommunicative, but eventually everyone lined up, walked through the aerobridge, down the stairs, across the tarmac and up the portable stairs at either ...

    The plane had a long turnaround at Tacloban so the flight was able to depart TAC 23 minutes early. With no air traffic delays, we arrived MNL 30 minutes early. Snacks and drinks were sold on the flight: drinks were cheaper than on SEAir. I was able to select a good seat at checkin, while bags ...

    SEAir Economy (short haul)

    on: A319

    6.3

    Manila's 'old' Domestic Terminal is now known as T4 at NAIA and is small compared to T1, T2 or T3. However that is part of its attractiveness as there are no security lines. Checkin was fairly slow as SEAir uses a manual system. Boarding was first come, first served: we departed three minutes ...

    7.8

    Although my flight was full, we boarded fairly efficiently although departed about 15 minutes late. The seat was reasonably comfortable as the plane was only a few months old, but it is 10 across seating not nine. Service was good as San Miguel beer is now on the menu. The fish was fine. The at ...

    I was fairly early to board at MNL T2. The flight was almost full in economy; we departed 2" late but arrived HKG right on time at the gate. The attendants served a full hot meal but while I was in the third economy class row from the front, I was one of the last to be served; the meals had been ...

    This daytime flight was on one of Virgin's couple of newer A332s which had the look and feel of a new plane. Boarding was uneventful. We departed four minutes early and after the obligatory Perth Airport attaching of a tugh to bring us to the gate, we arrived seven minutes early. The bright ...

    MNL- CEB. Greeted with a smile, I was soon enjoying the cvarrier's excellent, comprehensive and extensive Smile! magazine with its interesting synopses of Cebu Pacific's destinations. The plane pushed back on time, and surprisingly was not subject to any tarmac delays at Manila's NAIA with its ...
