Airphilexpress cancelled flights from Manilia to BacolodI have read in previous posts that Airphilexpress has stop flying some routes. One of them is Manila to Bacolod. I can not find anything to verify this is true.
I am confused, Is Airphilexpress still flying Manilia to Bacolod after Oct.28?
I have tickets booked on the flight from Manilia to Bacolod Nov. 22 2012.
Does anyone know if my tickets are still valid? I have emailed Airphilexpress and haven't heard back, Also no one has come into contact with me to let me know that fight is cancelled.

2I had been planning a trip to the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. I looked up the Airphilexpress site and noted times,prices etc of flights to Tagbilaran as I was putting the trip itinerary together. Went back into the site a few days later and was redirected to Philippine Airlines website where the fares were about three times higher than when I first checked.
I sent an email to Airphilexpress customer service dept to seek clarification but have not received a reply after 8 days.
Having just perused the site again it would appear that your flight will operate as normal from the budget terminal but after 28th Philippine Airlines will take over the route flying from Terminal 2 but at considerably higher fares.
A friend suggested that there is another budget airline Jest Air who fly the Bohol route

7Thanks Irishman and Oscar. I left a message on Facebook.
Does anyone know if Airphilexpress will refund my money? Then do I have to rebook with Philippine Airlines, or do they honor my previous booking with Airphilexpress.
I see the flight times are different with Philippine Airlines to Bacolod.
Thanks for the help

9Just an update Airphil replied back to my email with a new booking time for me, with Philippine Airlines. Unfortunately the times were not good for my schedule. I emailed them back and this is what they replied.
"We are pleased to help you with your concern. Please be advised that if you are not amenable with the new flight schedule, you have an option to rebook the flight with a maximum of 90days with no penalty, or you may cancel the flight and have your airfare to be refunded in full".
At least I will get refunded.

10yes from the 28th of oct 2012 PAL express the new name for Airphilexpress
will not be flying from Manila to Bacolod. Cebu. Davao. G.santos.Iloilo.
from that date you will have to use Philippines airlines.
philippines airlines uses terminal 2. not Termianl 3.
and yes if you try too book a ticket with PAL express it will just sent you to
the philippines airlines web site where the ticket prices are more.
