I’ve only read about this, but I never thought that I would actually try them out myself. When I got inside the waiting lounge at the Centennial airport, I saw this Boeing 747 docked in one of the bays. I’m always drawn to airplanes, and I would almost always whip out my camera and take a picture. It never occurred to me that I will be riding this plane. Never did I also imagine that it would feature Recaro seats with Audio and Video on Demand (AVOD).
Philippine Airlines has introduced its new e-ticketing facility for booking domestic flights.
Effective 10 August 2007, we are using 2 systems simultaneously. The New! Low Fare Calendar Search which is available for domestic itineraries only and the current Low Fare Search by Schedule for International itineraries or combination of International/Domestic Itineraries.
Low Fare Calendar Search
This applies to Domestic Itineraries only. You may now check the low fare across a seven day period or the low fare for your exact travel date.
Low Fare Search By Schedule
For International itineraries or combination of International and Domestic itineraries. You will be shown the best internet fare applicable to your preferred travel date.

I tried booking for a return ticket to Puerto Princessa using both systems. Surprisingly, there was a difference in the ticket prices. With the old system, the fare quoted was Php 6,873.00, inclusive of taxes. Using the new domestic booking system, the same itinerary only costs Php 5,210. Moving the departure date from a Saturday to a Sunday, I was even able to get a RT ticket for only Php 3,082. That’s a great price, isn’t it?
