Where's CRK's T2 supposed to be situated? I can see to get a handle on that. Would it be next to T1? On the other side of the airport? If next to T1, I wish they would improve the roads into the airport to make access from the expressway more direct. It's a bit circuitous to get there now.

The new Terminal 2 is some distance forward and to the right of the existing T1 as viewed from airside.....

Well spotted, Devilfish. Like seeing the new birds here on the West Coast.

I haven't thought too deeply about it but the gov't not ensuring airlines move to Bulacan seems problematic. I thought Bulacan was supposed to replace MNL entirely, not compete with it. Or do I not have that correct?

Their plan was to transfer all airline operations to the new gateway once it's built and functioning and convert NAIA into a "green" central business district. Somewhere along the way, this was modified into the two-airport scheme where CRK and MNL would work in tandem to address the runway/terminal capacity shortfall and airspace congestion problem until such time that a large, consolidated airport complex which could handle upwards of a hundred million passengers per annum is completed and fully operational (be it in Bulacan, Clark or Sangley). Well and good so far. But then came the politicians' and proponents' conflicting interests and all good intentions went out of the window. In spite of there being a lot which could have been done to upgrade NAIA, the public was made to suffer all this time just so they could have first dibs on the land.

Now, the idea seems to be developing CRK on a piecemeal basis, that is, one terminal at a time. Despite his bluster, RSA can be credited for putting his money (however much that is or whoever it actually belongs to) where his mouth is (mind - not entirely altruistic). Which is more than can be said of his competitors in the Consortium. Of course, all want their investments to flourish and to profit (immensely if possible) from those. Mandating airlines to move their operations to a particular airport would be pointless as they would go where the money is...or leave altogether if they could not be where they want. OTOH, staying where operating conditions erode the viability of their business model will also force them to seek that better place. At the end of the day, market dynamics will dictate the modus vivendi.

If you are referring to their reconfigured A330ceo, PR would've done it soon after refurbishment if it were possible at all (assuming route authority and the new IAF were ready). Alas, the A330 can't do it.

If after completion of their envisioned premier gateway the Government is still determined to close down NAIA...then they should just transform it into a mixed-used development for a new National Government Center. This preserves the country's patrimony as the entire complex remains public property. Considering they're planning to build new Senate and Supreme Court buildings at BGC and to transfer some public institutions to Clark, locating those at NAIA keeps them secure within the NCR and accessible to everybody ...given all the road and transportation infrastructure being built around it. The existing terminals could even be re-purposed for adaptive reuse to save money. The Gov't may, in parallel, upgrade the base runway and facilities at Sangley to serve official flying needs. Developers can buy private properties in the open market if they wanted to put up hotels, entertainment centers and commercial establishments...as they used to do.

If they refurbish their other A330s,which is more economical for PAL...i think they'll have them another 10 years before ordering the A330-9 neos/B797 MOA.i believe, they will also go for the B777-9x for the replacement of their B777s,but that can be by 2023/2024.i doubt,that they'll order the 35k.even do its the most beautiful aircraft for me at present,before the B777x enters flight.:):)
the smaller A359 is more needed by this time.they will wait for the B777x.i hope they will order more A359s.
And i hope they will order the B777-9, (upper middle income country/philippines)

On the domestic front, PR/2P is restarting service to Antique with a twice-weekly CRK-EUQ (San Jose, Antique) flight. Originally set to launch on October 28th, the current winter timetable has it set to launch December 16th.

PR 2205 (CRK-EUQ) - Tu-Su - ETD 06:00 / ETA 07:20
PR 2206 (EUQ-CRK) - Tu-Su - ETD 07:40 / ETA 09:00

This is the first time Antique has seen direct air service in a very long time, with people going to the province normally flying to ILO. The last service in fact came from 6K (Asian Spirit), when it flew MNL-EUQ, but 6K stopped flying here in 2007. PR, if memory serves, hasn't flown to EUQ since the Asian financial crisis, when it had MNL-EUQ flights.

Do they even have enough widebodies for this expansion? They can’t possibly fit these new schedules + daily LHR and YVR with 10 77Ws and 6 A350s, especially now that they’ve retired the A340s.

With the 77Ws being run hard, I guess this means that there won’t be any time to reconfigure the product anytime soon...

I also guess this means that they’ll hold off adding new routes next year if they’re just going to reinforce existing routes. SEA/ORD/CDG/FCO are all in the cards, but they don’t have the equipment for it.

EDIT: the PAL spokesperson posted on Facebook that they’re aiming to fly to CDG 4x/weekly in W19. Uhm, with what aircraft? Will they be exercising A350 options?

17x a week to LAX is huge. I wish they tried LAX - CRK for the 3x week frequency. Too bad LAX-CEB did not come back.

This shows clearly that N. America really is PAL’s bread and butter, which some A.netters seem to have a hard time understanding.
And 17w to LAX, wow! Even though I didn’t see this one coming, I’m not surprised!
Sleepless, you think this is too much based on what? Between January-August, the airline carried an average of 320 pax (load factor 87%) on MNL-LAX.

And for those of you who don’t understand how PAL will make this work, I don’t see the problem. YYZ will switch from 77W to A350!

So the ten 77Ws will be doing:
LAX 2,5 x daily
SFO 2 x daily
YVR 1 x daily

The six A350s will be doing:
JFK: 1 x daily
YYZ: 1x daily
LHR: 5 weekly

Although I agree that there won’t be enough capacity to launch new destinations...

I don’t think they will. YVR just recently got decreased to daily when they made JFK nonstop, as it used to go via YVR. So I would be surprised to see them go even lower there...

Me thinks PR should exercise at least 2 or 3 of its A359 options if they are really keen to expand their route network. Then leave their remaining options open for some A35J assuming its MTOW improvements are realized. After all the first two 77Ws (-7777 and -7776) are leased and are nearing 10 years of age.

I've read from another fourm that 7776 & 7777 leased where renewed a couple of month ago. As for how many additional years I don't know? maybe 2 to 5 years? Also I think PAL should consider exercise a couple of the option for additional A359 While converting the remaining option the larger A35K or even increased there purchase rights for either memeber A359 or A35K.

evtl. with the 6 other A359s,i will not be surprised if they'll announce that next year.

I've heard from previous press release that PAL will be opening more then one new lounges in MNL. With one at T1 another at T2, Since its planned that of PAL International flights will be transferred to T1 its possible that a T1 lounge would be prioritized first since PAL currently doesn't have a lounge in T1 (question still space at T1 for more then 1 mabuhay lounge at T1?). Probably the illustrations is for the T2 lounge which will subsequent become the terminal for all domestic flights of PAL and CEB.

I would have thought FCO had an equal chance...FRA can be left to KLM. The best bets are the A359 options, going forward -- when do those expire? The outlier here seems to be the 251T A338 should PR opt for a lower CAPEX upfront...as the A339 will be pushed to the limits of its range envelope doing these longer, thinner routes. RR T7000's woes may probably be behind it by that time. Interesting times ahead. :goodvibes:

CRK needs a new terminal first...and the 77W may be too big for that market. I think CEB is just waiting for the right aircraft (as does SEA).

I think the least that could be expected for YVR is a downgauge to a normal weight A359 to save some money, should PR exercise its A350 options.

A short lease might indicate PR is picking up its options and just waiting for start of delivery...while an upgauge to the A35K for commonality may not come soon as they just leased in two new 77Ws -- possibly at very competitive rates (unless they return a couple or so of their other leased T7s)

PR orders ten A338s and Airbus could throw in an ACJ221 for good measure. The Challenger livery above would work...the yellow could remain as is...just switch the colors blue and red for the two cheat lines...remove and replace the ones on the vert stab with the government seal or flag...et voila :!: :bigthumbsup:

One passenger of pals A350 flight to london,was complaining ,because he couldn't lift the armrests in economy,having a whole row unvacanted,for sleeping.
So its true, that the armrests are fix?that is the 'aisle-seat' pay extra-policy of pal.

Yes im hoping that pal returns to zrh again in near future.:):):) that is my dream!but they should serve the key points first (Paris,Frankfurt,Rom,Madrid)
They can revive mnl-via zrh to ams, or if they want always a full loaded plane manila-via dehli-zurich.all with the A359s.indians are great travellers to switzerland.

Doubt there would be enough pax for both PR and KL to sustain the route. MNL-DEL-ZRH could be a good alternative use for PR's tri-class A330s, though I wonder if the bilateral with India allows that.....

According to the Manila Bulletin, we now have a firm date for the opening of the new TAG in Panglao: November 27, 2018.

After 15 years in the drawing board and thrice re-scheduled launch dates this year, the country’s first eco-airport, the P11-billion Bohol Panglao International Airport (also known as New Bohol International Airport) will at last open this Monday, November 27, 2018.

The new airport will replace Tagbilaran Airport as the gateway to Bohol and flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will eventually move its Bohol operations to Panglao Airport.

According to another poster, it's only PAL still who has a "confirmed international route" to ICN from Panglao. Hopefully, the airport's opening and operation would not be so unduly affected by this..... :crossfingers: .....

Just found out that that stupid passenger from london was seated in 21c which is a premium econ cabin (A359)

Anyway, it is said that quality accommodations and other attractions are in short supply at Panglao.....maybe this is limiting the influx of tourists from the region. :scratchchin:

Why is it the travel tax here in the Philippines is collected separately instead of including it in the ticket fare? If I have not mistaken, few airlines like 5J have an option of including it in the ticket fare but others don't. It is kind of bizzare when you have to stand in a queue separately especially during the peak hours at NAIA for the payment of the travel tax. I haven't seen or heard of other countries having a separate system to collect taxes.

My thinking on the matter is that since a lot of people are exempt from travel tax (OFWs, journalists on assignment, minors, Filipinos overseas, dual citizens, etc.), the government finds it to be more efficient to collect the tax at the point of departure rather than at the point of sale.

That said, local travel agents and some other airlines (PR and KE at least) also collect the travel tax, so it's a matter of the government finding a solution to automating online collections while making it easy for those who qualify for exemptions to keep their exemptions.
