Best airline I have flown with :) recommend
Flew to Sydney via Manilla a few weeks ago with Cathay - not a bad flight (new airbus xwb). Christ Manilla is such a sh!t hole though, I hope I never had to go back...
I recently booked some flights to Bali, on my invoice it says the fare was £49, the rest was tax and surcharges! mad (Total was £406 return)
Did you look at PAL from LHR? I paid 360ish
Tax, tax, tax
