The boeing Company is very pleased that Philippine Airlines has selected the 777-300ER for addition to its fleet.

The airline crrently operates five Boeing 747-400s and five Boeing 737-300/-400s.

PAL, THE Philippines' air transport flag carrier, has a 65-year history and has been operating in Asia longer than any other airline. It has a modern fleet of aircraft and a route network that spans 32 foreign cities and 20 domestic destinations.

The ful effiencient 777-300ER is the world's largest long-range twin-engine jetliner and is capable of carrying aproximately 368 passengers in Philippine Airlines' two-class configuration, flying up to 7,880 nautical miles (14,594 kilometers).

What now remains to be seen is the confirmation of the two(?) leased frames from GECAS, if those are to follow in 2010 - a year after the direct orders.

What a GIANT coup for Boeing!!! A good friend who was once on the Board of PAL said that the airline was headed to an all Airbus fleet only 2-4 years ago. I guess things have really changed.
