PAL Upgrades JFK Service

5 October 2015

Philippine Airlines (PAL) is upgrading equipment to New York as it up-gauge passenger capacity beginning October 26.

The airline will shift to 370-seater (42 business/328 economy) Boeing 777-300ERs from the 254-seater Airbus A340s to operate between the two cities due to increase demand from the route.

“Using the B777 to the US Mainland enables us to operate our long haul flights efficiently and economically,” according to PAL President & Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista.

The upgrade is part of the eventual direct flight to New York to be introduce next year when new triple seven arrives.

Philippine Airlines is taking delivery of two additional units, slated to arrive in October and December 2016, respectively, says Bautista.
