Flight Cancellations In Manila?
Posted 12 August 2018 - 12:51 PM
So what will happen? Is my flight most likely going to get cancelled? If so, what's the procedure on that?
I already booked a hotel for 2 nights in Manila. Will they reimburse that? Will they pay my hotel in my layover country (Seoul South Korea)?
Will they reimburse the flight???

9 days is a long time away when you are talking weather conditions....so who knows if flooding will still exist
1. Flight cancellations, delays or re-directions (e.g. Clark in lieu of Manila) are all options the airline may use if they need to
2. Dependent on the carrier and type of ticket you purchased you will get zero to a full refund...so you need to read the fine print of the actual fare you purchased
3. Booked hotels at destination = the airline will not compensate (travel insurance is for this purpose)
4. Layover country accommodation = dependant on length of delay, actual carrier and again type of ticket you purchased......the variations are too vast to know what each airline will do in this situation (Air Asia = crap treatment, Cebu Pacific = great treatment......however this was my experience and others may have had vastly different experiences) keep in mind that if your flight into and out of the layover country is with different carriers, then any accommodation is likely to be at your cost (again Travel insurance)
BUT ..... in my opinion you are worrying way too soon...I fly into Manila in 2 days time and at this stage I am not worried by the flooding (keep in mind that Manila floods if someone cry's for too long....lol)
PS - and everyone's house floods....especially if they think that you will send money to 'assist' them in time of need

It's the worst flooding I've seen in 25 years. I watch TFC news everyday with my wife and it's unbelievable how much it's rained.

As others have said, I doubt the recent flooding would continue for nine additional days. Research the trip cancellation insurance that may be included with your credit card and go through with your trip. There are sites that list flight delays and cancellations, check them out. Also bear in mind that Metro Manila covers a huge area and not all neighborhoods flood.

As for your hotel, cancelled flights are valid excuses to request a change of date and perhaps some will allow refund if you cancel far enough. It depends on the booking site and hotel policy. But from my experience with Agoda, they have called the hotel on my behalf when my flight is delayed or cancelled and convinced the hotel to rebook my room at a future date, usually moved to a day or two later. But they require me to send in my copy of cancelled flight via emai. In fact, Agoda has always been able to change my hotel date whenever this has happened. Tho it depends on vacancy etc. Not sure what will happen if you deal with hotel directly or thru other hotel resellers. In any case, way too early to worry about the weather. IME, flights are rarely cancelled but more likely delayed 1 to 2 hrs until they find a clear opening. Last time they informed me via email, 6 hr's before, that my flight was gonna be delayed 3 hrs, I was gonna miss my flight anyways because I changed my plan and decided just to throw away the cheap ticket. But instead, I used that opportunity to get full credit on that flight for future flight. This is one of rare instances LCC will refund or rebook your flight when you buy cheapest tickets without insurance...

OP should not have anything to worry about. The rain we got here in the area of Manila I'm in was very steady Saturday, but the hard rain was never for really long periods of time, same with Sunday and this morning.....hasn't rained where I am since about 9:30 a.m. today. In this area, we got about 10-12 inches from Saturday through this morning, and there's been no flooding at all where I am.
The southwest monsoons are not predictable....some days it could be bad (made worse if there's a storm in the western part of the Pacific), some days it's nothing.
Some areas here can flood in a heartbeat...others, it could rain for weeks and it won't flood. Your biggest worry if it is raining hard is finding transportation from the airport that won't try to gouge you for all they can.

You can expect to be circling the NAIA airport no matter what the weather as the airport has trouble coping with all the flights. That is why the government is trying to get airlines to operate from other international airports instead and one of the reasons the new international terminal building was built next to the existing terminal building on Mactan Cebu and one of the reasons why a new international airport is under construction on Panglao island.
I have landed in a typhoon at Terminal 2 in Manila while there was significant flooding elsewhere in the city. Terminal 2 is a lot of glass. Afterward in the terminal building, it was like being inside a waterfall. Looking out through the glass, the planes were throwing up so much water on landing you would have thought they just landed in a swimming pool.
So, my expectation is that you will be landing in Manila on 31st August, regardless of the weather and regardless of flooding.
If there is a cancellation or a large delay, I would expect your airline to look after you at your departure point and stop over point so long as it is on the same itinerary, but will not have any liability what so ever for unused accommodation in Manila. That is what your travel insurance is for.

Your flight won't likely be canceled, because it will attempt to land in bad weather. Make sure you wear a helmet and wrap your body in bubble wrap (big bubbles are better cushion than small ones).
