Re: History behind idiosyncratic IATA airline shortcodes

Yes, I've also wondered for a long time how Philippine Airlines became PR. There's no R in the country's name at all, only in "Airlines", and its ICAO code is PAL. Quick research I performed assigns PH (our ISO code) to Polynesian Airlines/Samoa Airways (now OL) and Transavia Denmark - bot...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

Personally I'm not a fan of spending 8+ hours on a single-aisle like the A321. However I will consider acceptable if PAL configured there A321 in a Tri-class configuration like there A330 with J that feature direct aisle-acess and a small W cabin. I agree. Anything beyond 4 hours, I'd want to fly o...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

Although I'm beginning to question how well they deserve that 4-star rating now, what with that stupid new policy that ALL Y aisle seats regardless of fare class, domestic or international, now carry extra charges and it's only at the airport you can try and get them. So how can my family and I guar...
