Cheap flight are the Nanny flight HKG MNL on 5J but your baggage allowance is severely limited; which means no Balikbayan.
You are not saving much if at all going US HKG or TPE and then another flight to MNL.

Alas, for the average traveler, I stand by my statement: what do you need besides carryon?

Nobody dares to go home to PH without Balikbayan.
Every time I head to MNL or CEB for business I am tempted to auction off my extra luggage allowance at the airport.

BTW in PH the country name is spelled with a P but the people are spelled with a F; so say my Filipino business contacts.

Upstart Hainan Airline is driving down the price of TPAC flights via PEK. There is a limited visa free transfer at PEK to other airlines.
The network, transfers and timing might not work for everyone.

This would be the cheapest LAX-MNL PR consolidator I personally have found.
http://www.citytoursandtravel.net/ (call them on the phone they don't yet reliability handle internet)
These days they are a little cheaper than any place else. Not "allot" cheaper.
If anyone knows better for PR I would love to hear it.

Most recently OZ had some awesome deals LAX-MNL
