MU CEB-MAD Business Class RTN $1070USD

I just booked this flight. I have no idea what the availability is but here are my details for a March 1-15th trip.

I booked Cebu, Philippines to Madrid, Spain via PVG on China Eastern Business class for $1,070 return.

see OTA

Good Luck

I usually book the MXP-CGK flights for business class between Europe and Asia but this is pretty good fare as well especially since it originates in Asia.

For those on DL, this trip nets 6,267MQD at a rate of 5.85MQD per $ spent. That's insane, I thought I was doing well with AF PE at 4.65 per $.

Just a question of being able to justify two trips to Cebu on the Saudia deal, nesting this one in the middle. The biggest issue I have these days is time: I donít have enough of it!

This is what I was thinking of:

Saudia GVA-KUL,CGK,MNL £750ish AI RT

Not exactly Cebu, but I suppose it’s not too difficult to get there from MNL.

I would be glad to! Just looking at the planning I just don’t know where I’ll get the time before next summer and these fares might have evaporated by now. So you live in Cebu? That’s great!

I hope they will not restrict the access to the lounge to SkyTeam Elite Plus flying Y as they did in CTU.
I know in PVG they use they own lounge, which is nice, so this should not happen. Let's see.

And a word of warning if you fly out of CEB, there is an airport departure tax, payable in CASH PHP only, so keep some cash handy, you'll need it to escape the place.

And there is no point arriving real early for this flight as security does not let you into the immigration clearance area until 4AM (1 hour 10 minutes before flight departure) which means very little time if any to use the lounge. This is an area that China Eastern really needs to address with Philippine Immigration / Security. Why open Check-in at 3AM then?
