Click above to press play. PAL Boeing 777 tour!
Philippine Airlines just welcomed a new plane to its fleet! PAL recently acquired its 7th Boeing 777-300ER allowing them to offer more flights to North America. They’re going to fetch an 8th B777 this December! How exciting! There will be much more fun in the sky!
With more flight offerings and variety of schedules, passengers (including me) would absolutely get delighted with these choices.
By December 2016, PAL will start to operate double daily flights between Manila and Los Angeles from 10 weekly flights. Flights between Manila and Vancouver will also increase from 7 to 10 weekly and flights between Manila and Toronto will increase from 3 to 4 weekly.
I think I just wrote the magic word – “WIFI”
wifi wifi wifi wifi!
Imagine long hours up in the air with no entertainment! Now, you can wifi till sawa (I hope it’s unli). I haven’t tried a PAL long haul flight yet so I don’t know if the wifi is sagana (abundant).
The 2 B777s will be Wifi-enabled and are equipped with in-seat inflight entertainment. Check out my VLOG to take a peek and what’s in store for you!
