With the introduction of the Boeing 777, it is expected that Filipinos or all passengers on board the aircraft bound to UK will have a premium flight experience.
It is said that by the end of the year, instead of the then flying 4x weekly to the said cities, it will be increasing its frequency to a daily flight in which passengers will have a variety of options to select a flight with Philippine Airlines.
“As we carry out the brand promise to be a full service five star carrier of the country and be a source of pride of Filipinos everywhere, we shall continue to enhance the total travel experience along the route. We want our passengers to have the ultimate travel experience marked by comfort, inflight connectivity and the caring service of our cabin crew, embodying the Heart of the Filipino,” PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista said.
To note, since 2013, Pal's A340s used to served their Manila to London routes. With the this introduction to increase their flight frequency, they will now be using the new B777 aircrafts.
“With its range and operational capability, the flag carrier will be at par with other full service carriers along the route. We will also increase capacity as the aircraft will have a 370-seating capacity on a two – class configuration (42 on business and 328 on economy) as compared to the 254-seating capacity of the A340,” he added.
At present, PAL has a total of 82 planes, made up of A320s, A321s, A330s, A340s and B777s as well as Bombardier Q300s and Q400s.
