I just wanted some help to find out some information about one flight from 97. Someone I know flew LHR-MNL back then but she doesn't remember much from the flight. She says that she think that the flight made a stop in BKK, but she wasn't sure. So my questions are:

1. If it didn't go n/s, where did it stop? (the multi-stop flights on PR had already stoped by then, right?)
2. Aircraft type? (There are 2 pics of PR in LHR, one DC-10 and one 343)
3. Also, how long did PR operate at LHR?

(LHR-MNL: PR723, 5th may 1997)
(MNL-LHR: PR722, 28th may 1997)

Thanks, bye  Smile

Philippine Airlines flew Manila-London, London-Manila nonstop four times weekly just prior to its brief shutdown late 1990s. The flight was flown using one of four Airbus A340-200 aircraft the airline had in service. (aircraft now flying for Aerolineas Argentinas)

Flight time was 12/5 hours eastbound, 14.25 westbound. I believe the flight was somewhat capacity controlled to allow the long stretch westbound.

Loads varied, but enough for PAL to schedule a fifth weekly service two months before pilots went on strike.

Other European routes included MNL-BKK-FRA (3x weekly); MNL-BKK-CDG (3 weekly) and MNL-FRA (3x weekly). For a brief time, LHR was served using an MD11 via BKK and FRA but was dropped in lieu of nonstop service. The milk run (MNL-BKK-KHI-FRA-LGW, MNL-BKK-AUH-FRA-LGW; MNL-BKK-KHI-ROM-LGW ended in the early 90s prior to the introduction of the A340-200/300 to PRs fleet

PAL served LHR about 7 years I believe having switched over from Gatwick in the late 80s, early 90s.
