Was Air China cheaper than PAL?

I'd take Philippine Airlines, EVA Air or Korean Air. Of course PAL is the most convenient being a direct flight.

Hard to believe. If the difference isn't that big, just fly with PAL. Unless having a transit flight doesn't bother you at all.

Nov 1 to dec 31 their overall on time arrival performance is 69%. Most probably you will be transitting through beijing. Their ontime arrival at beijing is 83% BUT on time departures out of beijing is 29%.

Philippine Airlines is the only airline in Southeast Asia that has direct flights to Vancouver, you may want to take advantage of that. As far as Skytrax is concerned both Philippine Airlines and Air China are considered as 3-star airlines so the quality of service would be in the same level.

If your flight is several months from now you may want to check PAL's website for seat promotions as it could be cheaper than Air China.

That's good to hear and for travel during the middle or 2nd half of the year, there will be more seat sale to come. There are at least 2 seat promotions every month.

I have flown them from Manila to London and they were OK check out http://www.airlinequality.com/ Beijing is not a bad airport for transits, built for the Olympics, also you can have a 72 hour visa free stopover in Beijing if you want to see the great wall and Beijing.
