Overall Flight had been very smooth but in flight services found very poor. Drinks are provided hot and staff tries to not answer bell. When serving drinks or snacks tries to run in aisle so not everyone see it otherwise have to serve it, strange but it's fact. Service needs to be improved.

Delay on the outward leg cost us a missed connection and we lost our first days holiday. Delays on return trip almost made us miss our domestic connection from Manila to Cagayan.
