He called the hotline but he was advised that there will be $34 fee each for rush processing. The processing of award ticket is free if you are booking 10 days prior to flight departure. 8 days before departure kami nagbook.
My husband informed me about the fee and I told him that we will just purchase the Manila to Cebu flight, sayang naman yung miles + $34 + P565 (taxes and terminal fee). So he just reserved a ticket for our Cebu to Manila flight.

Premium Economy 7500
Business Class 8500
Unfortunately, there is no available economy so it is either premium economy or business class, so my husband chose the business class for us para maexperience namin. Hehehe! Ubusan ng miles.
After calling the hotline, you have 3 days to collect your award ticket in any Philippine Airlines office. Fill out the form, show your ID and pay the necessary fee for domestic or international. In our case, we paid P565 each.
This was our second time to redeem flight rewards and the process is still the same. Redeeming miles is so easy but it takes time to earn miles especially that we are not a frequent traveler. Hehehe! Most of our miles are from Non-Flight (credit card rewards).
