    If you're flying Singapore Airlines it's always best to check-in online. There is a separate queue for web check-in that is much, much shorter. In fact oftentimes there is no one in line at all.

    It's a no "wang-wang" zone, people! DYI, a "wang-wang"er is someone who thinks they're too important to wait in line like everyone else. I like this sign. Everywhere should be a "wang-wang"-free zone!

    Long queues going in due to scanning of the luggages. Thats before check in. Remember this is an OLD airport. Must get your shoe polished inside the terminal after check in. My tradition anyway.

    Try Japan airlines if you wish to fly to Narita or for a connecting flight going to states. Japan airlines is really accommodating and will serve you with warm welcome hearts.

    While waiting for your flight, drop by The Sampaguita Lounge (turn right after the Duty Free shops). For just 10 dollars (PHP450), enjoy free-flowing beverages, chicken arroz caldo (congee), etc.

    The terminal fee is 550 peso or US$12.55 on August 30th, 2013. You can pay by cash or card. If you have only bill of US$20 or US$50, never mind, they could give you US$5 and some pesos as a change.

    The East Wing entrance is closed for repair, go around the West Wing out for the minuscule sidewalk especially if you're using the carrying karts. Still as ugly as 10-years ago.

    The Mall of Asia is a great place to hang out if you have a long layover. Just walk out of the airport, hop on any Northbound bus to Baclaran (costs P 12) and take a jeep to MoA (costs P 8)

    If you have no access to airline lounges, there's a lounge called club Manila that you can use by paying 650pesos. There's stable wifi here, decent food and drinks. Good investment for lots of waiting

    Stay at The Sampaguita Lounge (just right after the Duty Free shops) for a quiet, relaxing space while waiting for your flight. Buffet snacks with FREE WiFi!

    Although the law changed in 2013 allowing the use if itineraries in mobile devices, it's still faster to enter the airport with a paper copy of your itinerary.

    Citi PremierMiles and Platinum holders get to access the Delta Sky Club, but only from 8 am to 8 pm! Quite useless if you're on early US-bound flights. Amex card holders get to access Miascor lounge.

    word of caution, there are two international airports in Manila, one which is for Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights only and the other NAIA1 which serves all others. Make sure your going to the right1

    The free wifi seems hard to connect to, both my phone and laptop can't seem to log on to it. Invest in a data sim card if u need data like me. Affordable at 400p for 5days unlimited data w Globe.

    If u get out for a quick cigarette DON'T talk to the cops and don't smile to them they will ask u 4 a souvenir ( cash, mostly foreingin value ). They should bomb this place and rebuild it from scratch

    When boarding be prepared to pay 550 philipino pesos right at Customs! It is a mandatory Airport departure fee that you must collect and is equivalent to 12 USD. At least they accept credit Cards.

    Prepare yourself psychologically before arriving. Tell yourself you're patient and prepare to let annoyances slide. Breathe. That's all you can do until they bring this place into the 21st century.

    If flying via TG, before heading to the airport, check-in online. At the TG check-in counters, in the airport, queue at the biz class and say you did an online check-in. Time saver.

    There are 3 different security checkpoints throughout the airport: one to get into the airport, one to get into the terminal, and another to board the plane. Thankfully you can leave your shoes on.

    Tripple checking before entering flights. You can't bring in your lighter in. Don't forget to buy some Philippines Mango as a gift :-)

    Get here EARLY, like 3-4 hours before your flight leaves. Security is tight, you go through 4-5 frisk and checks. Make sure you got your tickets or itineraries printed out or else you won't get in.

    authorities asks to see your passport and boarding pass/ticket every possible check point. Before you enter the airport, check in line,the security line,the hallway to the gate, at the gate etc.

    Been here a couple of times in the past and online check in saves you ton of time with the long queues. It used to take me an hour to check in and now it only took me 5 minutes!

    When picking-up someone, just pay for parking and wait at the waiting area. Do not be like others that park at the unloading/loading zone. It's not proper and an inconvenience to other people.

    Although newly renovated, all it really got was a paint job. Still very crowded since the place isn't any bigger. The parking lot is in dire need of a face lift! Sad, sad state of affairs here.

    The MIASCOR lounge is free for Citibank Miles card holders. This is a good respite after the long queues at check-in.

    If spouse is an OFW and you're going to the country where he/she is working, present their OEC and marriage certificate at the Travel Tax counter. You will only pay 50%.

    Dont Q on the long lines..some immigration officers (e.g LAO-lady) are doing power tripping! They forgot the purpose of a "VISA", asking you documents which u already submitted at the embassy. #kaasar

    Get ready PHP550 before leaving Manila. Airport charge terminal fee. Also, if you web checked-in, get the departure card from the check in counters or from the guard at the departure gate.

    If you have a choice, choose airlines that depart from / arrive at Terminal 2 or 3. Terminal 1 is a work in progress.

    The terminal is under renovation right now. Quite deserved, as it looks very outdated and kind of shabby. There was no restroom landside. Could find only a single power socket in the whole airside.

    If you plan to eat or do some shopping do it before you go to your gate- once you pass the checkpoint they won't let you go back.

    Unlike CX, TG's internet / mobile checkin is useless (other than selecting your seats as early as possible). No dedicated line, checkin info are manually encoded and thus may take time.

    This is the only airport in the world (NAIA 2 & 3 included) where you find monstrous lines. Aggravating for the sleep deprived...

    Leave for the airport around the ETA to avoid waiting for a long time. Free wifi and live video feed of passengers could be entertaining otherwise

    If flying via CX: Check-in online before heading to the airport, drop luggage (if any) + pick-up boarding pass at dedicated online check-in counters. Saves an hour of your time.

    Bring a pen to fill in the mandatory embarkation cards. There are no pens provided by the airport. And you can't go through the immigration without valid and filled in embarkation card.

    Do not show up more than 3 hours early for your flight or there's a good chance they won't have counters setup for your flight yet, and there's limited seating in the check-in area.
