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)

hmm seems they only operate from manila I'm in bohol

@  samthedog : (22 January 2018 - 01:49 PM)

Hi

 

I'm trying to book a room for my stay in February at Wild Orchid Subic.

 

But they don't accept credit cards for deposits. They say it has to be done with a bank transfer. 

 

Has anyone experience with that? Is that reliable?

 

They also have very slow email communication, i'm getting only 1 answer per day, but this must be the time difference, alltough i didn't had that problem with other hotels in the past.

 

 

greetings

Leroy

Yep

That was one of my ideas too, but Agoda says there are no free rooms for my stay :)

I've booked a few times direct with Wild Orchid intending to pay cash for the 15pct discount and always get the email asking for a bank transfer.

The first time, I queried this and got a nonsensical response so I thought 'bugger it' and booked through Agoda. When I arrived, I had a dupe reservation add they didn't cancel my first enquiry and were too daft to notice that they had 2 reservations under the same unusual name.

Ever since, I've just sent off the query from their website get the confirmation and advice about the money transfer, and then left it that. Fire off an email a couple of days before arrival to remind them that I'm coming and all has been OK.

I just looked for next 2 weeks and see availability; when you trying to stay?

 

I use agoda with them few times (make sure you print out the file agoda  emails you and the hotel a stickler about seeing it.) I would never try handle it thru emails as customer service there is pitiful to say the least. Not downing resort, I will def stay again; just you get typical PI customer service...

I just copy and pasted the above comments to the manager of the Wild Orchid Subic,  Hope they can sort the situation out.  

 

I have nothing to do with the Wild Orchid other than a periodic customer and know the owners>

I was making reservations for a Boracay vacation and the hotel we wanted said they only took bank transfers - no credit (and no Agoda).  So I told em forget it.  Too much trouble for me.  I don't care if they get my business.  Too many other places to go.

 I have stayed at this hotel two times, each time being able to make reservations without making a bank transfer.

 

I just booked my third trip there - for the first time I was not asked to make a bank transfer to reserve a room.   This time that was not the case.    So maybe they are listening!   I am certainly not going to pay $35 to my bank to make a wire transfer to make a hotel reservation.   The first two times I was able to get the room even without the bank transfer....not sure if it was because of availability.   

 

You might want to try again and push back if you are asked for a bank transfer.   I would pay for a deposit, but not if it costs me $35 and a lot of hassle to go the bank to complete .
