Now that the pay off of the once new, abandoned, and now ready for work (but very dusty) International Terminal is hopefully in the works, will that lift the blacklisting of PAL in Europe and thus usher in a new era of Manila to Europe flights again? And will NWA move to the new digs?

Not gonna happen.

I don't believe PR is black listed in the EU at all.

PR is almost at max with it utilization of its widebody. Since these routes to the EU has so much competition we wont see PR return any time soon. Europe to MNL choices are KL, LH, CX, MH, SQ, TG, CI, EK, QR, EY... etc etc

Expect expansion to China and India. More flights to the US is more likely in the near future.

There was some rumors that PR was interested in flying to SAN.

It was my understanding that because the country (New President) stiffed the German firm that put up the cash and brought in the equipment to build this massive new, however never seen one plane or passenger International Terminal of tomorrow, the world court lifted PAL and any other Philippine airlines right to fly Europe until the bill gets paid. The old president, who admitted he spent most of the time in office waisted and/or having a party, was supposed to have been in a back door deal with the owners of the new super port, and when his Excellency was tossed in the clink... all his deals were null and void by the tiny terror that took his place. Now the papers in Manila are reporting the strong possibility that a bond will be floated to pay off (settle) this debt, and get the new airport cleaned and oiled up for service before the rats and falling bricks take over MIA for good. It's a beautiful airport, and leaving Manila is a costly experience! last time I left it cost 550 pesos just to walk to your gate. No doubt an airport in Manila is a BIG $$$$ maker for all parties, gate fees, landing rights, shops, restaurants, etc.

True, they are interested in flying to both SAN and SEA this year if they can acquire proper aircraft, mostly likely A340-300s. The SAN flight would be thru YVR (MNL-YVR-SAN), and SEA would be nonstop (MNL-SEA).
