What would you consider a 'good' round trip ticket price? Not necessarily the best ever, but if you were flying, low enough you would go ahead and get it vs waiting for prices to lower more.

Flight Network gives you a lower price guarantee. If the price goes lower, you can get it, but only once.

Flight Network appears to employ a rather dubious business technique known as "bait and switch". I've tried to book a flight from Davao to Malta and Flight Network gives me a price of £863 (round trip) flying DVO -> SIN (Silk Air) thence SIN -> ZUR -> MLA with SwissAir. However regardless of which dates I choose, that flight is always fully-booked. The next cheapest is £1046 and is with Turkish Airlines out of Manila (PAL DVO -> MNL). That same Turkish Airlines flight happens to be the cheapest shown by eBookers (a site I have used many times and do trust) but is only £916.

I have used FN only between PI and Canada with no problems getting seats for 2 at prices very close to PAL direct. Maybe Malta is busier or has less frequent flights. FN is based in Canada while EB is based in UK.

Going by these reviews, I will continue to use FN or direct from PAL. In fact, I just got 2 one way tickets from Bacolod to Manila to Toronto free using Mabuhay Miles. I paid only the taxes of 7,000p for two. That is a savings of ~85,000p.
