IIRC, about 15 years ago, PAL was banned from US airspace for both security and maintenance issues.

Lufthansa Technik came in, joined with Macro Aerospace, and Lufthansa Technik Philippines was born. They took over most of the maintenance for PAL, and the airline was brought back into compliance.

This latest problem surely cannot help the Philippine government getting them back to Category 1 compliance.

What U.S. carriers get major work done there? I am encouraged that the FAA is actually watching the situation.

Unless this affects air fares the general public could care less.

Probably true...out of sight, out of mind...right?

Here's their webpage with a list of customers:

Mostly Asian carriers with a few European and Hawaiian being the sole US-based airline. If HA wasn't doing it's aircraft maintenance there, would the FAA even have inspected them?

Yes... in order to maintain their FAR 145 Repair Station Certificate they must be inspected.. US customers or not.
