First time to fly Cebu Pacific's High Density A330 and I was half expecting an unpleasant flight. Fortunately, my flights on Cebu Pacific turned out to be much better than expected. I flew MNL-SYD on 5J7295 on 07 Nov. and SYD-MNL on 5J7296 on 12 Nov. The negatives. IFE is non-existent, no personal A/C vent, Pre-ordered meals are horrible, blankets for sale, you're not allowed to bring water on the plane from MNL but ok from SYD. Thing is, I've read about it and knew what to expect.

Now for the positives. Seat pitch was good and I'm 6'0" tall and large built. I still had enough legroom with my knees hardly touching the seat in front of me. In fact, it's much better than their A320's. Furthermore, I was also able to secure an entire 3-seat row to myself on both legs despite both flights being more than 90% full. The cabin didn't look that cramped at all. Service was likewise friendly. Lastly, both flights were on time with the MNL-SYD flight actually arriving 30 minutes ahead. If you're flying budget, just know what to expect. Otherwise, fly full service and pay the price. For A$ 140 return (fare only), I'm a happy customer.
