There is a good promo going on right now via Philippine Airlines Ultimate Seat Sale running from August 9-12, 2016 (oops until tomorrow only if you are reading this now!) Business and Economy seats are up for grabs up to 60-percent off!
I was browsing for some good fares such as this one, r/t MNL-LAX for February 2017 (Lean Season) on Business Class (J) for only $2,559! Normally lowest fares on this route for this season would be China Southern or Asiana or Korean but at around $200 more..
Fly on “J” just for the heck of it? Yes and No.
Yes–Because this deal is irresistible, it comes only every once in awhile. If you are a Mabuhay Miles member, collecting miles and take PAL flights on a regular basis, this is a good deal for a mileage run. You get at least 125% Mabuhay Miles per way, aside from the additional baggage allowance, the seats, extra meals, extra legroom, lounge access and dedicated/priority check-in and baggage handling.
No–Because basically $2,600 will easily buy you four round-trip tickets to Tokyo already on Economy Class from Manila. Personally, I’m still on the look out for other better deals. But for bargain hunters out there, this might be the deal you are looking for 😉
