@  doctor who : (23 January 2018 - 01:46 PM)

I predict you have the same chance of your flight being canceled as a Tsunami in Alaska,,

@  Red Horse : (23 January 2018 - 05:44 AM)

I predict the chance of your flight being canceled are 00.00%. Why worry?

@  teedeeboy : (23 January 2018 - 02:59 AM)

I'm from UK too and not worried about my flight back

@  teedeeboy : (23 January 2018 - 02:58 AM)

So unless it is a big eruption & winds blow ash NW unlikely Manila will need to close. But of course it could be huge. Just don't take the Iceland event as a precedent!

@  teedeeboy : (23 January 2018 - 02:57 AM)

More limited closure with the Indonesian eruption a few years before where ash did choke all 4 engines of a BA jet

@  teedeeboy : (23 January 2018 - 02:56 AM)

So they closed western European air space for elf 'n safety reasons. Total over-reaction. When pilot got back monitoring flight showed near zero ash & air space reopened

@  teedeeboy : (23 January 2018 - 02:55 AM)

The Iceland eruption close-down was a fiasco. Only happened because the ash-monitoring plane pilot was on holiday

@  statusquo : (23 January 2018 - 01:16 AM)

Stealth thanks for the update in the shoutbox helpful to all. You forgot the most important factor, amount of debris ejected. If the entire mountain explodes we all have a problem. There is no way to forecast how this will impact the planet but I must say the amount of global earthquakes is through the roof in the last couple days. I am sure scientists all over the World are crunching models of impact. I am surprised that "advisory" wasn't issued 10 days ago. Gotta feel for the people in the surrounding area.

@  Stealth009 : (22 January 2018 - 07:35 PM)

Philippine civil aviation authorities advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ash from eruptions can be hazardous to aircraft.
•Check with your airline for the latest flight information if you are traveling to/from Legazpi Airport.

@  Stealth009 : (22 January 2018 - 07:35 PM)

@Dunky , just saw this in another thread.....

@  Stealth009 : (22 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

@Dunky , you remember " Iceland " that shit close nearly all the europe airtraffic controle space for a few day`s

@  Stealth009 : (22 January 2018 - 07:22 PM)

@Dunky , it depends on a lot of different factors , how high will the ash go , how thick is it , how many miles wide is it , what will be the wind direction , how long will it be hanging.....

@  statusquo : (22 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

dunky intriguing valid question indeed. Wish you would have posted it in a thread for discussion. Any atmospheric scientists on the board?

@  dunky : (22 January 2018 - 05:05 PM)

and I'm from UK

@  dunky : (22 January 2018 - 05:05 PM)

I see the Mayon volcano has gone off. Is this likely to affect international flights? I will be booking my tickets soon for my trip between 10th feb and 3rd march '18

@  samthedog : (22 January 2018 - 01:55 PM)

Gents, I will be heading to Subic for 2 nights to 'break-up' my Cherry trip to AC in September.

I have been looking at hotel options & would like to ask which are the better choices amongst the mongering community.

I'm an easy going traveller but I'm looking for:

- a clean aircon room with in-room safe
- close to bar areas (within walking/stumbling distance)
- pool (preferably, as I've heard the swimming at the beach isn't great this time of year)
- lady/guest friendly
- jacuzzi (preferable)
- under 4000 peso

I was considering the Jacuzzi room at Kokomos (3500/night).

Any advice much appreciated,

Hi Dirty Old Dog. DO NOT STAY AT PALM TREE RESORT. Stayed there last year and what is on there web site is NOT what you get.
When I go again will probably stay at the Arizona International Resort http://www.arizonaresortsubic.com/ or Wild Orchid Resort. http://www.wildorchidsubic.com/. The Wild Orchid is not really walking but plenty of trikes to take you home. Beach front rooms, which are the best are 5,500 each but also have a jucuzzi. Enjoy mate. Cheers K

Arizona resort is very popular and right across from the bars. Kokomos and treasure island are another option but they are a bit further away from the bars (only a few minutes in a trike)

If you want a bit more luxury then Wild Orchid resort.

Thanks for the (bloody quick) responses!

Arizona looks like the preferred option. I've actually spent most of my morning at work sifting through Trip Advisor reviews. Arizona is ranked #1 & as you've mentioned, is in the middle of the action.

I do have a few Q's regarding Arizona:

1. Do they have in-room safes? (I'm only repeating this Q because there's no mention of them on their website & I couldn't see any in the photos)

2. Does the floating bar operate in September? (I'll be there 17-18 Sep)

Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom. DoD 

Sheaven's Resort has great rooms and good prices. BlueRock has the best food in town and a great staff. Both have pools and are close to the action in the evening. (2 minute trike ride for about 40 peso)

Enjoy Subic!

I normally stay at Wild Orchid Resort. Food is good, Blue Rock is right next door for change of pace and floating bar and Moby Dick is a nice little bar with a good pool table. Gina is the bartender and always pours a good drink. Great Pool also.

I have stayed at Blue Rock a couple of times and always enjoyed it there. The hotel staff is very friendly, they have a floating bar and you can also rent jet skies. The rooms are reasonable priced, very clean and have ice cold air conditioning, last but not least the food there is fantastic! I would highly recommend staying there

I stayed at the Arizona earlier this month, rooms are decent, clean, staff very accommodating, and of course guest friendly. I walked to the bars, never had to take a trike which I avoid if possible because they're a rip off.

My only caution is they are in the middle of a major remodel of the dining and pool patio area. Putting in a second floor over the patio for a new dining deck and some rooms if I'm not mistaken. Hopefully most of the disruptive work should be done by September. I know I'll stay there next time. As much as I like the Blue Rock, it's a bit off the main road, and I like the convenient location of the Arizona and easy walking distance to everything.

I have just booked one of the VIP rooms at Trader Ric's on Baloy Beach. They look amazing although I know that they are expanding and I was warned that there is construction work going on when I rang to book. I'll let you know what they are like.
