Since there are no order announcement coming from PAL. I'm starting to think JJB
was at Paris Air Show just for the Skytrex
Airlines Awards. In which PAL recived the tittle "Most improve airline in the world"
"The announcement of Bautista’s retirement coincided with PAL bagging this year’s title for the world’s most improved airline on Tuesday during the 2019 Skytrax Airline Awards, considered the Oscars of the aviation industry"
"It’s my finale act as president" Bautista said. “For the last 26 years, I worked very hard, working 24/7. I have not given much time to my family,” he said. “I have traveled a lot but I haven’t visited the places I wanted to see because whenever I travel it’s always for work, so I think I really need to have a break.”
"He said he looked forward to traveling the world with his family and grandchildren after his retirement."
“I’m already 62 years old and the position of the airline president is very taxing, very challenging. It’s really for young people,” he said, alluding to Tan."
