Philippine Airlines and PAL, the low cost subsidy of Philippine Airline, have started weekly sale fares every Monday called Monday Madness. These tickets offer AMAZING savings for travel throughout South East Asia, Australia and within the Philippines. Tickets go on sale EVERY Monday at midnight and continue through Tuesday. This means that at 12pm EST Sunday the sales begin!
Although many of us will not be in the Philippines and will not be able to take advantage of these deal there are ways that many of use can if traveling that direction. If you are traveling to/through/or near the Philippines, I would HIGHLY consider looking at how low some of these fares are! Last August when my family and I traveled to Borneo, fares to Kota Kinabalu were over $1800. Instead of flying directly into BKI we saved almost $900 by flying to the Philippines for $800 roundtrip and then bought a connecting ticket to BKI from Manila on a LCC for less than $50 each way! Therefore, if you are traveling to SE Asia, be smart, save some money and make a pit stop in Manila!
Sadly Philippine Airlines do Not earn any frequent flyer points with any other airlines, but a saving of hundred of dollars can be extremely entiching over a few hundred/thousands miles!
