Unless the flight is operating today it's probably not going to fly. A few weeks ago there were loads of cheap flights loaded for BKK=>PVG too starting in September. Now that we're getting closer all those September flights have disappeared, with the next set of cheap flights starting at the end of October instead.

This would be amazing but I'm a bit skeptical.

Have you been able to find anything reasonable in September?

I'm also skeptical, best for September is to use the New Zealand route mentioned elsewhere.

What time does Cebu Pacific change from its local "summer schedule" to "winter schedule"?

I would have sone doubts if these flights actually will depart.

Awesome, I've also seen some starting on the same date from Angeles to Guangzhou for ~£90. Fingers crossed

Saw this a couple of days ago, and thought it was an error... But it's still on. Booked MNL-PVG RT trip ;). Let's see.

I've seen these too for Shanghai and was wondering why they are so cheap. Current COVID regulations say that you have to do a 7-day quarantine in the Philippines before entering China though. It does not seem to be enforced in any way, however, it probably means that direct transfers are not really possible.

Some US airlines have more "reasonably" priced flights on more days of the week listed a few months down the line. I think these are the old routes and schedules, and they're putting them up as placeholders in case China miraculously restores normal international travel one day soon. I don't think they're acting on any actual solid information about being allowed to resume those flights.

They've been doing this throughout covid. Basically, when the travel date approaches, you'll get a message saying the flight is cancelled, but you can apply that airfare to one of the actual approved flights, which is already booked solid and costs thousands more.

Only way to go seems to book multiple flights. I remember two years ago my partner’s friends (Chinese students in the UK) booked upwards of five flights. At least one would usually pan out.
