Re: PAL drops LAX-CEB

Such a shame, i loved that route for the one time i rode it. But those A340s certainly had a decent load in Y, when i looked at J when we arrived at LAX, it certainly appeared like it was loaded to the brim. But then again it was your usual summer OFW trips.

Your dream of said Airport upgrading said object/services.

So, what is your dream object/service of an Airport Upgrading or Bringing back.

Mine is well, DVO upgrading the amount of restaurants at the International section, since well it is just one shop serving light snacks and ramen cup noodles.
