I know Manila was part of the 13 destinations obtained by United with the purchase of Panam´s pacific division, but I want to know why United ended the service to this city.

Besides they operated Manila from LAX, SFO or NRT

One word: yield.

Cargo was great on this flight, but most pax were mainly homeward bounds and not biz types. Has a significant amount to do with the struggling Philippine economy. Hopefully, the new president will bring a new era of economic growth just like the one overseen by her father many years ago...

Imkeww hit the nail on the head. One more thing with Manila is that the flights did go out almost full most of the time with...non-revs.
