Philippine Airlines is running another Mabuhay Miles Getaway promotion with 30% off all award tickets on international flight (except South Korea) from September 1 – December 10, 2018. Bookings have to be made by July 27th, so be quick to get on the phone. While this promotion is not as generous as the last Mabuhay Miles Getaway that offered a 50% discount, this is still a great sale with a high discount on many flights!
Philippine Airlines (PAL) was recently named a 4-star carrier by SkyTrax and has been adding better planes and improved service. And while their Mabuhay Miles rewards program has gone through a number of devaluations recently, it still offers good value on many routes.
Especially PAL’s Business Class on long-haul routes to Sydney in the excellent new Airbus A330 with flat beds and direct aisle access, as well as London and the US are great picks. Keep in mind that starting in October, you will be flying new Airbus A350 non-stop to New York and London!
You have to book these flights through PAL’s customer service by phone or in person and be prepared to be patient. It took me several calls to book, pay and ticket a simple one-way award. Unfortunately, awards can’t be booked through the new online feature I reported earlier – let’s hope that will be a future improvement to the program!
If you don’t have enough Mabuhay Miles for your desired award ticket, you can transfer miles from a number of credit card programs, including Citibank ThankYou. You can find an overview of the best Mabuhay Miles credit cards here!
