CAUTION: Cancellations of PAL Flights

Pretty strange guidelines at Zest Air

On December 6 we determined to see our pals in Panay through Christmas and New 12 months. Sadly almost all flights have been by now marketed out or ended up sold at astronomically significant costs.

But ZestAir experienced even now some seats offered. Very well, the routine experienced not been the best:
Cagayan de Oro to Manila at 05:30 AM
Manila to Kalibo at 04:25 PM
All other flights ended up marketed out!

When we arrived ahead of 07:00 AM in Manila, we went to the ZestAir ticket office at the Aged Domestic Terminal. There we were informed that they even now experienced seats for the 12:00 midday flight to Kalibo.

When we questioned the agent to change our scheduling, she informed us, that it would be better to toss absent our ticket and buy a new one. We ended up a little bit confused…

Here is the rationalization:
New ticket cost for MNL-KLO is PHP 2,344.00

But when we rebook, the calculation seems as this:

New ticket PHP 2’344.00
minus previous ticket – PHP 1,454.00
variation to fork out + PHP 890.00
in addition 24 several hours penalty + PHP 1,120.00
additionally rebooking cost + PHP 672.00
New rebooked ticket PHP 2,682.00

We made a decision to hold our old tickets and went to Mall of Asia and had a pretty good lunch! 8 hours of amusing browsing and an outstanding lunch. Thank you ZestAir for your strange rebooking plan.

But which is not all.

When we landed at 05:25 PM in Kalibo Worldwide (hehehe, global !!!), the plane stayed on the runway. The air problem was on comprehensive electricity and we bit by bit acquired frozen and the cabin was stuffed with fog.
Just after a although the pilot educated that we experienced to wait around mainly because there was no parking area out there for his aircraft. Just after an hour, with our noses flowing and all fingers toes blue, we could leave the aircraft. 

 This delivers up two new issues:

1. Kalibo bought a definitely huge new international terminal, but the tarmac however has the size of the aged domestic only situations. Why didn’t they enlarge the tarmac?

2. Why do all the airways fly to Kalibo at the similar time? We noticed 2 ZestAir Airbuses, one particular from Cebu Pacific, 1 from AirphilExpress and 1 from PAL. 5 Airbuses that experienced landed in just just one hour.
