My Philippine Airlines Experience

I don’t know why it took me a long time to do a review on this. I have been flying with PAL for many years now. It’s just one of those reliable airlines where you could get quality service. And with its 4-star rating from Skytrax, it’s timely that I do this review now.

It would be hypocritical of me to say that I never got a not-so-good experience with this airline. I can distinctly remember the delayed flight I had years ago from them. But those would be due to circumstances that they could never control (ex: typhoon and runway traffic). This never stopped PAL from improving their services.

Their dishes have improved through the years. It was a decent meal that could power you throughout the long flight. On our flight back home, I just had to have my coffee. And the design of their sugar and creamer really caught my eye. It’s those details that are eye-catching and screams Pinoy.

We also got a blanket which I never got to take a photo of. It was nice as the flight was quite long.

I wasn’t able to take photos. Maybe it’s partly because my family always fly with PAL. I have become accustomed to their service that taking photos didn’t cross my mind. This is still our go-to airline as they offer reasonable fares for their flights. Plus, you do pay for comfort whether it’s for a bigger leg room, meal or simple things like getting a free blanket and pillow. Those things matter especially when you’re in a long flight. So yes, I still look forward to flying with PAL. 🙂

  1. Always better with the flag carrier!

  2. PR has rarely let me down in terms of onboard service. I usually fly in cattle class, but I’ve also tried Business Class a few times, and the experience has been consistently good whichever part of the plane I’m sitting in.

    A real shame PR’s home base at Terminal 2 is hobbling their drive to improve. Not all of it is their fault – after all, the government and the MIAA are in charge of building and maintaining the place, and all PR can do is whatever they can with the constrained facilities available. And no amount of effort on their part can change the fact that MNL is severely congested, with just 2 runways that can’t even be used simultaneously in most cases, so there’s not much they can do to limit the occurrence of delays.
