Cebu Pacific has announced that they are will be taking on the long-haul flights starting on the third quarter of 2013. The company will be leasing 8 new Airbus A330-300 aircraft capable of up to 11 hours of non-stop flight. 

The largest airline in the country also said that the new planes will allow them to lower down the long-haul fares by as much 35% lower than what other airlines are offering. On seat sale promos, the figure can be up to 85%.

Although the destinations where Cebu Pacific will serve is not yet finalized, Lance Gokongwei said in the press release that they are exploring areas where many Filipinos are located such as Europe, Middle East, Oceania and the USA. He also mentioned one specific example, Saudi Arabia, where many Filipinos still fly on non-continuous flights.

A Revolution in International Flight Market?
Cebu Pacific has the known reputation of being a trendsetter in terms of marketing strategy. Their low-cost airline model for Cebu Pacific has boosted the company to be the largest in the Philippines overtaking the long-standing Philippine Airlines (PAL).

Cebu Pacific low-cost promo offers also helped boost Philippines' local tourism. The huge discount on airline fares attracted many locals to travel and explore the country. Due to the popularity of their promos, "Piso Fare" and "Cebu Pacific" has become household terms. 

And with this new direction to go on long-haul flights, Cebu Pacific is bound to be bigger than what they are now. I'm hoping that they will become a trendsetter not only locally, but also internationally when it comes to offering low-cost flights to the passengers.

  1. wow , that is good news!

  2. Every Wednesday the perfumed young lady slips me a hundred-crown note to leave her alone with the convict. And by Thursday the hundred crowns are already gone in so much beer. And when the visiting hour is over, the young lady comes out with the stink of jail in her elegant clothes; and the prisoner goes back to his cell with the lady's perfume in his jailbird's suit. And I'm left with the smell of beer. Life is nothing but trading smells.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100.

Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
