Especially given how much grief the rest of us are having to bear.

You may want to check the BDO travel fare happening this weekend if you are based in Metro Manila. Min 2 pax to avail the rate.

Saigon is at US$755 while Da Nang and Hanoi is at US$1135.

Travel period is from 11Jan to 30 Nov 2019

There might be some local promotions from Cebu...at least we know that CX may still offer promotions to Vietnam for 2019.

Another note, anyone knows if these tickets allow name change?
Was able to rebook my return flight from JFK in November 1 day earlier. Since I was stupid and book through OTA, I have to pa US$350.00 for it.

Hi folks,

To those of you who have successfully made a chance without repricing - what was your original booking class? I have it in I class, and last time I called I was told no change whatsoever without repricing.

Thanks!

Booked mine via Orbitz - D class / Fare basis code DAARRVN8. There's a $50 change fee in the fare rules. Is that what others are seeing? How much should the total change fee be for 2 passengers?
