How much does a bargain P688.00 airline ticket cost?

You still save money, but here is a breakdown of fees which horribly increase the actual cost of a P688.00 to , to P1686.96

Base fare: 688.00
Aviation Security fee 15.00
Fuel Surcharge 400.00
PH-VAT 153.96
Web Admin Fee-manual 80.00
Insurance Fee(ancillary)250.00
Seat Selection Fee 100.00
Total Amount 1686.96

As far as I know, the insurance fee may be deselected, but the web-admin and seat selection fees are forced upon the traveller.

Thus expect bargain prices of P688.00 to end up more than double (1,376 pesos) from one airline.
