Fully Booked


The Dutchman and I have been checking air tickets to the Philippines for our winter December trip. My brother is also getting married and since he is marrying a Tagala (someone from the Tagalog Region – Manila), then the wedding will obviously be held in Manila and not in Cebu. I heard it will be in Intramuros. I just hope they finalize all the dates this week because the flight ticket prices are climbing as I type!

OK, here's what we've found. BM Air Reizen (they have good fares), have the cheapest € 579- (retour) with Cathay Pacific but darn, fully booked. Dutchman checked our other options, Swiss, KLM, Gulf Air – ALL again fully booked! Is there some exodus of some sort to the Philippines in December?! Hmm right, its Christmas...

The thing is, the Dutchman is now in panic attack. I guess I don’t really have to explicitly explain that but we might end up buying air tickets around € 1200 each!!!

I am going to continue searching the flight database. What an exciting task this is.

  1. usually -- promo seats run out very quickly, but if you check with the airline directly, you may find that there are economy seats available, just not at promo price. this was the case for me with singapore air.

    When Mikey went to Pinas on December like 2 years ago, he paid 1200eu but that was to Davao. It would range around 1000-1200 atleast round trip with Sing Air.

    I thought you're going to Pinas for a business trip. Isn't that going to pull through?

  5. I got my tickets from a travel agency (Manila International Travel Agency or something) and they are known for selling cheap tickets. I booked at 570USD round trip. But that's from Manila. Unfortunately, by mistake, it got cancelled so when I tried to rebook, the flight was full -- according to the agency. When we talked to Singapore Air, they said their economy was still open and explained that budget seats are just a portion allocated to agencies. it's not the entire economy class section. So, I would guess you might want to check with all the airlines directly to check if they are really full or if it is just the seats allocated to agencies that have all been sold. you won't get a promo price, but it's still cheaper than business class.
