Philippine Airlines is set to accept the deliveries of two Boeing 777-300ER this December, 2017. The acquisition of the airlines’ two B777 is based on a long term agreement with Intrepid Aviation.
These planes are capable of flying longhaul and will have 370 seats in two classes, 42 BCL seats and 328 ECY.
“The Boeing aircraft will serve the Manila-London route, a move designed to primarily enhance the total passenger travel experience and inflight service delivery. While we already have eight B777 serving the West Coast, the incoming units will also augment other trans-Pacific flights,” according to PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista.
On top of the two B777-300ER, PAL is expected to receive Bombardier Q400 turboprops for domestic operations and two Airbus 320NEO.
