Understanding Seat Sales

Seat sales allow you to save money on airfare, if you book early enough. Here are a few things you need to know about them:

  • Limited slots only; the dates and number of seats available run out quickly. Decide on a destination, discuss with friends and relatives, and choose a date.
  • The quicker you book, the better. Related to the first point above, since there are a limited number of seats available, you’d have to make quick decisions.
  • Some dates may be unavailable or run out of seats quickly; this is often the case for peak and holiday seasons.
  • The fares displayed are BASE ONLY; meaning you may have to pay additional for taxes and other fees.

Be the First to Know about Seat Sales

You need to know WHEN a seat sale will or is happening before you can book. Here’s how you will know:

  • Like PAL’s official account on Facebook. Many airlines announce their latest promos through the latter first. If you want to get notified immediately, prioritize PAL posts on your News Feed. To do this, visit their FB page, hover on the FOLLOWING button; when the options appear, select SEE FIRST.
  • Follow PAL’s other social accounts such as Twitter and Instagram.
  • Like us (THE POOR TRAVELER) on Facebook. Yep! We always announce and promote the latest seat sales not just for PAL but other airlines as well.

Things to Prepare Before the Sale

Successfully booking discounted airline tickets requires a bit of luck and preparation, here are some helpful tips when you start looking for cheap fares during PAL’s sale:

  • You’ll need a reliable and fast Internet connection because the site will slow down because of heavy traffic.
  • Create an account to get points and miles; if you get enough, you might even get to travel for free.
  • Download PAL’s mobile app to book on the go.
  • Have your travel details ready: preferred time, destinations and dates.
  • Have a plan B if plan A’s dates, times and destinations are no longer available.
  • If you’re traveling with someone, get their details such as full name, birthday, preferred dates and times, and agree on a destination. Ask if they want a pre-booked meal and/or baggage, and if they want a window or aisle seat.
    Book individually or by twos because the discounted airfare might not appear if you search for tickets for your entire group.

How to Book

  1. Visit PAL’s official website: www.philippineairlines.com.
  2. Select origin and destination, dates, and number of travelers
