hey mike,

I have flown from lax several times to Manila. both Philippine and Cathay. Every flight I was on arrived at night time in manila. If that is the case then you will get there about 9 pm. Domestic does not open until around 4 am. There is another flight that goes to Singapore and to Cebu. that by passes Manila. Check that flight out.

Depends who your onward flight is with. If Cebu Pacific there is a good chance you will be leaving terminal 3. only a few oddball flights from the old domestic terminal these days.

hey Gary, that is good to know about terminal 3. It is a pain in the azz to go up to the domestic flight area. There is never anything open that late at night. After flying for almost 17 hrs I would then have to sit outside in the heat until domestic opened about 4 am.

As per normal international flights, you will go through immigration at your first point of arrival. You need to collect your bags from the carousel and carry them through customs. You will then check in for your onward connecting flight. Depending where you are flying to, that may mean another terminal. That will show on your flight itinerary.

You will have to clear customs in Manila.

I just came in on PAL from Honolulu, arriving at 4:30pm at International T2, with a 2 hour layover. Was through immigration in 10 min, waited 20 min for my checked luggage (including a bicycle in a case). Took them over to Customs, was cleared and back to the luggage belt. Walked outside and up to Domestic (same terminal) where I was still an hour early for boarding my Cebu flight. Amazing.

I do this once or twice a year and it never takes more than an hour to hour and a half max. But that's assuming you're flying in and out of terminal 2. And it helps that it's all on the same airline.

have they changed the domestic check-in location? When I flew into international I had to take local transportation up to domestic with my luggage. Walking was out of the question with luggage. It has been 6 years since I flew in there.

If you fly into the old NAIA yes you still change terminals but if you fly into the Cebu Pacific terminal, not sure if it's 2 or 3 it has both international and domestic in the same terminal.

Yes, Terminal 2 contains both International and Domestic for PAL, which is what makes it so expedient to fly PAL into the country if you have connecting flights. Other airlines like Delta, KLM, Cathay Pacific, United, ANA, and Singapore Airlines use the newer and nicer Terminal 3 for international flights, and I believe Cebu-Pacific and a few other carriers use it for Domestic, so that's another option as Cebu Pacific goes everywhere.

Easiest is simply to try and find flights that come into and leave from the same terminal as getting from one to another is a royal PIA.
