Thank you B747, Hello B777!



The PAL jumbo jets (right aircraft) – the iconic Boeing 747-400s – were formally retired yesterday (May 12) in a ceremony where the flag carrier also announced the use of the new B777-300ER as replacement on the trans-Pacific routes, following the country's Category 1 upgrading by the US government.
