I discovered that the OFW passenger type is for few KDs of discount on the ticket price, which I didn’t mind. Mark September 12, 2018 at 11:34 am - Reply no discounts, both prices are the same https://248am.com//images/2018/09/ticketprice.jpg Riz September 12, 2018 at 10:20 am - Reply To exempt the OFW to certain travel tax in the Philiipines. :) Franklin September 12, 2018 at 3:02 pm - Reply Is for terminal fee exemption for leaving PH airports.

Green September 12, 2018 at 11:01 am - Reply Always been that way on most airlines. Its called ‘youth fare’ and usually goes up to age 21. Green September 12, 2018 at 11:00 am - Reply Maybe they have a different fare? Possibly to compete with the fact that ’employers’ would book the cheapest possible ticket no matter how many layovers were involved. vampire September 13, 2018 at 3:20 am - Reply +1 APARIMITH September 16, 2018 at 1:57 pm - Reply + 1 Million :) Kuwait September 12, 2018 at 11:13 am - Reply There might be extra steps or procedures involving certain nationalities. Faisal September 12, 2018 at 11:22 am - Reply I think they have a specific fee waived for them due to an agreement with the gov’t something like that. I recently bought a ticket for a lady working in our household and realized that a small fee (1-3 kd range) got waived when I clicked on the Philipino overseas worker Mark September 12, 2018 at 11:33 am - Reply i just checked, its the same ticket price https://248am.com//images/2018/09/ticketprice.jpg Security Advisor September 12, 2018 at 11:28 am - Reply Maybe a special Kabayan friendly menu or meal plan ?? :-) afnanzn September 12, 2018 at 12:16 pm - Reply first you wanted expats to get deported rule for E lanes and now you want a special meal plan? lucy September 12, 2018 at 12:03 pm - Reply Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) are exempt from the International Passenger Service Charge (LI Tax) upon presentation of an official LI tax exemption document. May September 17, 2018 at 2:19 pm - Reply so where to get the “LI” tax exemption document? Mohamed September 12, 2018 at 3:38 pm - Reply It’s because OFWs have to pay some kind of departure tax once they present an Overseas Employment Certificate. It’s also on the Philippines Airlines website, no discrimination involved. Fawaz Al Saleh September 13, 2018 at 2:13 am - Reply i swear this airline gets dumber by the day, seriously who singles out a race of people as a separate category. shadow September 13, 2018 at 2:31 am - Reply I know we all love bashing Kuwait and anything to do with it, but this term is actually used in the Philippines, they even have OFW cards. Just a little google peepz :> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overseas_Filipino_Worker vampire September 13, 2018 at 3:22 am - Reply Plz,, know whats going on b4 responding with dump comments Ahmed2 September 20, 2018 at 4:43 pm - Reply hmm, could be so that when they arrange chairs, they put maid else where, so family be together.
