PAL $100 Voucher OR 7,500 Miles for NOT bringing so much luggage.

It is well known that Filipinos generally travel with how ever much baggage they can get away with, so is goes without saying that PAL probably spends more on fuel transporting luggage than it does transporting passengers. Imposing baggage surcharges and limits like US carriers would likely result in riots at check-in so they apparently came up with this "Travel Light" promo for flights ex-LAX or SFO where they will give you a $100 travel voucher or 7500 Mabuhay Miles to only check one bag. I'm betting not to many takers from the Filipino passengers but since I never check any bags it looks like a pretty good deal for me.

Oh yes, the best part is, I received notice of this promo in an e-mail from PAL's official Los Angeles Reservations office and in typical PAL syle they attached a flashy promotional PDF file, watermarked that it was created in some shareware PDF creating program whose trial period was expired. LOL
