Last February 4, 2016, Philippine Airlines (PAL) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) in San Francisco sponsored a U.S. Roadshow Presentation at the Embassy Suites Waterfront in Burlingame, California. The event kicked-off PAL's 75th Anniversary and launched the new Los Angeles-Cebu-Los Angeles nonstop flight, which begins operations on March 15, 2016. Guests were able to meet with 8 Philippine Tour Operators (from Manila and Cebu) in order to create tour packages with the new flight to the Philippines. The highlight of the evening was the raffle of 2 roundtrip tickets to the Philippines. For a short time, the round-trip ticket costs $713, inclusive of tax.
