American – $1,004: Dallas – Manila, Philippines. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

American has an interesting fare to Manila. It allows you to route via Hong Kong, Tokyo or Seoul. The best routing option would be via Hong Kong if you are an Executive Platinum since you can ride on the 77W.

Routing through Seoul is the cheapest at $970. You would then connect to either Asiana or Korean Air. If you go via Tokyo, it is $980 and you will connect with JAL. We picked the Hong Kong option because it is a new plane and if you have Systemwide upgrades, significantly less coach time.

The intra-Asia segments are not available as a codeshare. So you will not earn full AA mileage. If you want some AA miles for those segments, select the Tokyo routing.

And if you are still reading, Air China has this for about $50 – $80 cheaper. However, it requires a double connection.

    I’ve been looking for a flight to Manila, but would love the opportunity to stop over somewhere else in Asia fora mini-vacation. Unfortunately, this flight doesn’t allow stopovers it seems. Do you have any other suggested deals?

    • TFD says:

      @mac – if you want a stopover in Asia, you could just take advantage the numerous Asia deals out there and then buy an asia-mnl fare? for example, LA – Hong Kong is about $670 right now then a HKG->MNL roundtrip can be as low as $200.
