Philippine Airlines have been promoting the super low prices of their Mabuhay Class seats, both for their domestic and international flights. While the prices were truly tempting, I was rather disappointed that the fares for their Melbourne flights are still rather high. My brother, who received the newsletter with the low fares, noticed that the fares to Brisbane from Manila are quite cheap, and then my sister pointed out that fares from Brisbane to Melbourne go for around AU$100 round trip, so it’s still quite a savings if I’m to take that route.
So I went the PAL website to check if these fares are for real. And they are!
The biggest surprise of all is that the business class promo seats are now cheaper than if you’re buying an economy class ticket!
PAL’s Mabuhay Class promo runs until seats last, except for Sydney and Melbourne, which is only from May 1 – July 31, 2013. Fares are exclusive of surcharges, government taxes, and ticketing service charge, but excludes the Philippine travel tax (for Filipinos), and the airport terminal fee. The fare entitles you to 30kg of check-in baggage, access to the Mabuhay Lounge, and 100% miles accrual. For more details, visit the Special Offers page at www.philippineairlines.com.
