Flying with Cebu Pacific

If you're planning to go on a vacation anywhere within the Philippines or Asia with a tight budget, then the best airline for you is Cebu Pacific. They offer really low fares, especially if you make it in time for their P1.00 per ticket promo that's recurring every so often after a few months. Also, the quality isn't all that bad. For a really cheap fare, you get seamless take offs and landings. You'd also be confident with the flight because the planes are in good condition.

If you plan to fly CebuPac, here are some tips to remember:

  1. Buy early, save a lot. When you buy early, there is a big possibility that the fares you will get are the lowest of the bunch. The later you buy, the more people have already bought, and the number of slots for the cheaper fares are already taken.
  2. Bring snacks or something to munch during your flight. Since Cebu Pacific already offers very low prices, it's only logical that they don't serve any snacks on the plane. :) They do offer food and drinks, but you'd have to buy them at quadruple its normal price. Bring some sandwiches or junk food and buy some drinks at the airport and you'll spend less on the plane.
  3. Don't mind the crew attendants. It's surprising how they repeat the safety reminders every flight, but they are also the ones disobeying the rules. During our flight from Cebu, we were seated at the last seat with a bunch of flight attendants listening to their iPods while taking off. They keep telling the passengers to turn off all electronic devices but they themselves don't do that. Oh well.
  4. Be on time. But, expect your flight to be delayed. It doesn't happen always, but it happens 90% of the time.
That's all for now. Just remember, in every trip, treasure the good memories and not the terrible ordeal of getting those memories.
