Hi,

Northwest recently announced a code share agreement with the Phillipine carrier Cebu Pacific. I'm not familiar with this airline. Does anybody have any info regarding fleet, routes, ownership, etc?

Many thanks,
Joe

Cebu Pacific is a dynamic, low-cost carrier that has a fairly extensive domestic network in the Philippines. Despite its name, the airline is based in Manila, not Cebu. I assume it used "Cebu" to capitalize on the island's business and tourist reputation. It is owned by the diversified Chinese-Filipino Gokongwei group, which has interests in just about anything you can think of. The fleet is composed of used DC-9-30's primarily from Air Canada and Indonesia. There are reports that the 717 is being considered as replacement. The airline suffered its first major accident a few years ago when a plane flew into a mountain because proper VFR procedures were not followed. The airline handled the incident relatively well and emerged from the crisis quickly. Over-all, I think it is a win-win agreement for both carriers, providing each other with feed and convenience.

At least two of Cebu's aircraft where ferried through Cold Bay Alaska in 1996-97. The pilots where not even familiar with the fuel systems on the aircraft. This caused one of the aircraft to dump fuel overboard when they started up the aircraft.....

I have also seen a couple of them that have transited ANC on the way down to the Phillipines.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Mon oncle is a captain for Cebu Pacific. He was originally a PAL 747-400 Captain, but was blacklisted after being one of the prominent leaders of the crippling Pilot's Strike that put the final nail in the carrier's most recent coffin.

He enjoys Cebu Pacific very much; he says the culture is great. I got to tour a plane he was flying one day, and although the flight systems of the 9 looked supremely archaic and 60's-glam, the plane was in VERY sturdy condition. A quality low-fare line. Visit cebupacificair.com for more info.

so, does this deal also mean that when you're in Manila and transferring from a cebu pacific flight to a northwest flight that they will take care of transferring your luggage? or do you still have to claim it and check it in at the Northwest ticket counter?

I'm not sure if they have an interline agreement, but I think it is something the two carriers should have if they are to fully exploit their potential together. NW uses the old international terminal while Cebu Pacific (I think their designation is a number and a letter) uses the old domestic airport- a distance that can take as little as five minutes by car or more than an hour if traffic is bad.
