For frequent travelers like us, we always wanted to get great values on air fares. And while in search for a cheap flight for our next destination, I discovered this page from Philippine Airlines – by far, our favorite airline in the country. Anyways, here’s a list of type of passengers and the percentage of discount they could get when they fly with Philippines Airlines.

This post is long overdue and it has been 4 months since we experienced a canceled flight. It was our first time. Many times, we dealt with delayed flights and transfer of airplanes but this is only the first time we experienced a canceled flight via Philippine Airlines last July 29, 2013 bound to Manila from Laoag, Ilocos, Norte Philippines. It was a rainy afternoon and the first announcement was the flight is delayed. The plane arrived almost an hour after our original departure time. We were immediately embarked on the plane and when everything is in place, the pilot…

I don’t want to sound biased or promoting Philippine Airlines here, but as a traveler, it is so far my most preferred airline in the Philippines. I have rode the country’s airline flag carrier for several times already in my tours here and abroad. And so far, I’m loving it. I’m not sure but I read once that the Boeing B747-400 is the Philippine Airlines’ largest fleet (please correct me if I’m wrong). So when I learned that it will be our plane when we went to Hongkong last February 2012, I really got so excited. It is so far…

Our trip to Bohol is our first stop for domestic/beach travel this 2011.  I’ve always wanted to go to this place to see the Chocolate Hills but I was surprised because it doesn’t only have the amazing hills, it is also gifted with a beautiful white-sand beach — the Alona Beach. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, we got our ticket from PAL’s downpour deals. Our 2-day tour was hosted by Choco Tours, a local rent-a-car company based in the province. We had the Panglao tour on the first day and Bohol Countryside tour on the second day. All…
