good journey
flight Economy, Cebu Pacific, Jan 25, 2020
I did not pre check or pre pay for check in bags bc I was unsure at time of early previous booking weeks before. Lady said we will pay overage, but instead in the end we paid flat fee to check 4 bags for more expensive but better value. She could have save time and mention that it’s better deal to pay flat fee for 4 bags instead of kg overage. But maybe communication error on both parties her and us, or bc my spouse was rushing and making me nervous to understand. Overall it went ok and satisfied with check in.

Terribly delayed, no information in the pier. Said boarding at pier 6, but was in pier 1. Hard to get food onboard. But quite comfortable journey, there were showers and other facilities

Well good
flight Economy, Philippines AirAsia, Jul 27, 2019
Besides the awkward check-in line, the staff seemed to be a little 'unfocused' and demur in attitude... As well, it was difficult to get any attention from the flight associates, as they were busy serving meals and drinks to 'paying' customers, that took way too much time... perhaps that process could be improved much better for all future flights - there's got to be an easier way to go about that.

So amazed with my trip thanks a lot.
ferry Mega Value Class, 2GO (2GO), Mar 25, 2019
It was a nice experience. Not sure if for security reasons but lights on all night in the dorm. Better to choose bottom bunk. Satisfactory method of travel for the price. Fine print of rules and regulations of ticket is very unprofessionally written. Very surprised a company of this stature would permit such writing. An insult to people’s intelligence.
flight Economy, Philippine Airlines, Jan 29, 2019
Good flight and on time. I wish 12go had suggested options for the overnight boat as well. I might have chosen that option. That said, the flight was good, on time and well-priced.

I was transferred to an earlier flight ????
