From 19th September 2017 a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will serve the London – Manila route, a move designed to enhance the passenger travel experience whilst rationalising capacity, with 42 seats in Business Class and 328 in Economy versus the 254 seats on the current A340.
David Cochrane, Country Manager for PAL UK & Ireland said, ‘Philippine Airlines has just been ranked sixth amongst the World’s 10 Most Improved Airlines by Skytrax and Fourth Best Airline Worldwide for cabin service. On the back of these accolades, we are thrilled to deliver a truly premium experience onboard a brand new aircraft to our guests visiting The Philippines and beyond.’
The new 777 Business Class provides utmost passenger comfort inflight, with 78 inch pitch seats which adjust into full-flat beds. All seats feature an 18.4 inch personal TV screen, a retractable privacy divider, in-seat power supply to charge via mains or USB and an ottoman that opens to reveal a personal storage area.
Likewise the 777’s Economy Class is designed for optimal comfort, with a wider seat pitch of up to 34 inches and fully adjustable leather headrests. 11 inch touch-screen personal TVs and built-in USB ports allow PAL’s guests to indulge in world-class inflight entertainment throughout their flight.
Philippine Airlines has launched an interactive virtual 360 tour of the cabin which can be viewed online at http://bit.ly/777TOUR
Across both cabins passengers can enjoy over 300 hours of international movies, TV shows, and music whilst staying connected on their devices via myPAL Wifi. Inflight dining features a vibrant mix of Asian, Spanish and American dishes offering a mosaic of flavors that are all passionately prepared.
PAL aims to be the Philippines’ full-service five star airline. The journey towards reaching this goal is the implementation of flagship initiatives such as fleet modernisation which includes the acquisition of six brand new Airbus A350s for delivery starting mid-2018 and the reconfiguration of eight Airbus A330s to serve destinations including Honolulu, Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo and Osaka.
