PAL just acquired two additional Boeing 777-300ERs arriving this year. Viewers of the expo will be having a 360 tour of the said plane. The Boeing 777 or commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven” is the world’s largest twinjet, and is powered by the most powerful jet engine. Also in 2017 is the purchase of Q400 Nextgen, the world’s most modern Turboprop, which will be dedicated for domestic flight services. Also among the purchase is the Airbus A321 which has a wide cabin allowing wider seats and a more comfortable flight and the Airbus A350 which uses extremely strong and lightweight materials making it a durable and reliable aircraft. Both the A350 and A321 are for international flights by 2018.
This June of 2017, flights to Honolulu though the reconfigured Airbus A330s will get everyone excited. Philippine Airlines will convert the cabin lay-out of eight monoclass 414-seater A330-300s into a 309-seater tri-class model with Business, Premium Economy and Economy class sections. That translates to a wider cabin making each and every flight pleasant, comfortable and convenient.
The A330s also has a feature on business class which is the Pneumatic Comfort System or PCS that allows seat firmness to be adjusted by the passenger according to preference, plus the massage function. PAL is the first Asian carrier to offer the PCS.
In-seat monitors called myPAL esuite are upgraded and will be seen in the A330s. What’s more interesting is it can now work as a direct messaging function from the crew. A dedicated function for the kids called “little PALs” will be there as well among many other new functions .
Aside from the employees, planes are the heart of an airline and indeed, PAL never settles for anything less.
More flights are now available for passengers: Manila to Kuala Lumpur, from Cebu to General Santos, Surigao, Puerto Princesa and Coron and from Clark, to Puerto Princesa and Coron and can be booked by logging in to philippineairlines.com or via Swingaround tour packages at swingaround.philippineairlines.com.

The Heart of the Nation Inflight Safety Video is a crowdsourced safety video which is a first. This is a new approach to inflight safety and it is uniquely done! PAL is creating an experiential Safety Challenge to promote Safety advocacy.
Among the activities in the expo, a series of challenges tested our knowledge. This was done after viewing the inflight safety video presented by PAL. It is called Safety Zones and special prizes will be provided for participants who can complete the tasks. Up for grabs were free round trip domestic flights for the minor prizes and international flights for major prizes.
