This is my first post, so I thought I'd ask an easy question to break the ice. I'm flying to Manila in December on PAL in Business class, taking Delta to SFO and connecting from there. Has anyone ever flown PAL, and what can I expect in terms of service, meals, IFE, etc.
Thanks for the Info!
Oh, and does anyone know when NW is retiring the DC-9's?

Won't answer all your questions but I flew Phillipines once KUL/MNL on a B737, apart from everyone looking completly lost, ie a girl right at the back looking for 1A it went well, took off in a monster thunderstorm which was interesting.
Once in the cruise I noticed a guy with 4 stripes standing at the rear in the aisle smoking and it was not until his 4th or 5th cigarette that I realised he was the pilot. Luckily it looked like the 2nd officer was a non-smoker as he never joined the captain for a smoke.
Onboard entertainment was a cassette player outside the flight deck door and the FE would come out and turn the cassette over........
SUPERB but went back Malaysian

Well, you will most likely travel on the 744, however they do run a weekly service to SFO with an A343. The Business Class cabin is situated on the upper deck of the 744. They have a fairly average IFE system, although they do have PTV's.
I terms of meals they supply:
