Balikbayan Question

Recommended Posts


The last time I purchased my ticket online from Cathay Pacific (this year) a pop-up came on screen saying something about the balikbayan. I wish I got a screen shot of it. Their website knows about BBs, but the staff needs to catch up with it.

Have had similar issues and the only time they stood firm was Cathay Pacific in HK. We stepped away from the counter and I purchased a Full Fare ticket from Cebu to HK for the following month on them. no prob, now we can travel. As soon as we arrived in Cebu I cancelled the ticket for a full refund.

Sounds like a good option in those circumstances, if you can obtain a full refund.

Another option would be to buy a "throw away" ticket. The cheapest I have seen recently is an AUD $35  Cebu - Macau ticket, non-refundable.
