Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

PAL for the time being is too conservative from fleet expansion to network expansion - for some reason, they need to poke the executive who are seated at the board for the convenience more than what is needed to be done. Objectively opportunities abound for PAL but ..... they opt to miss the ride H...

The clean, sleek and sophisticated lines coupled with the organic textures of the Philippines, really stand out and emphasize minimalist modern sophis...

Re: What should Philippine Airlines do to make money?

They recently added a lot of capacity to LAX/SFO and upped frequencies to SE Asian cities. That gives them a bit more economies of scale to offer cheaper flights. Looks like there are some positive stats at least for Thailand. PAL leads the market with 40% Share of the Thailand-Philippine traffic w...

While laudable, one can't help but feel that it is still a bit of a red herring relative to both airports.

I guess with the arrival of two new 77Ws, the A340s need a place to go. However, an A330 could do the route as well. I guess all of the reconfigured A330s will be a bit busy by then. Maybe PR is trying to match capacity with demand. As it is, the A340 is already a huge increase in capacity and will...
