On the heels of JetBlue introducing BluePass, this year’s more limited version of ‘All You Can Jet’ where they’ll let you fly as much as you’d like from either Boston or Long Beach, Philippine Airlines is offering their own an All You Can Jet Pass (so to speak), a “Fly Asia” pass which allows unlimited travel to 12 cities for 7 weeks for only US$270 + taxes/fees. (Unlimited business class is $1070 + taxes/fees.) And it earns miles.
Travel from Manila, Cebu and Davao to Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Macau, Saigon, Shanghai, Singapore, and Taipei.
They’re seling the unlimited travel pass through August 7 and all outbound travel must be between August 15 and November 30, with all travel complete by December 10.
Within two weeks of purchase you must redeem all your travel under this program, and you must do all your tickets at once.
Here’s the table of taxes and fees:

Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles may not be of interest to very many readers, but for the two of you that are interested this could be a huge mileage running opportunity.
Update: The economy fare is not such a great mileage run opportunity — I don’t really keep up on changes to the Mabuhay Miles program and not all fares earn full mileage (apparently this change went into effect in 2009). So assuming these tickets book into U, W or P they won’t earn full miles. If I were doing this and planning to fly heavily, I’d argue that the business class option looks more attractive.
