PAL to boost capacity between MANILA and GUAM for Christmas Peak

09 Oct 2019

Philippine Airlines will be increasing seat capacity by 15% on its daily service between Manila and Guam this yuletide season, by upgrading two of its seven weekly flights to the widebody Airbus A330-300 aircraft. From December 15, 2019 until January 13, 2020, PAL will operate A330 flights every Sunday and Friday from Manila and every Monday and Saturday from Guam. For the rest of the week,

PAL will utilize the 199-seater narrow-body A321CEO.

PAL's 309-seater A330 aircraft will add 110 more seats per flight compared to the current 199-seater Airbus A321 for a total of 990 additional seats each way, or a total of 1,980 additional seats both ways, during the holiday period.The A330 aircraft offers 18 all-aisle-access Business Class seats with full flat recline and a bed length of 78 inches; 24 Premium Economy seats with 8-inch recline in a private Premium cabin, spacious 38-inch legroom, a built-in leg rest, calf-rest and footrest and in-seat power supply; and 267 Economy seats with 6-inch recline and 31” – 33” legroom.

PAL's A330 is among the most spacious widebody twinjets in the skies, as competitors cram as much as 436 seats into identically sized A330s vs. the 309 seats in PAL's premium version.

All seats are equipped with MyPAL WiFi and In-flight Entertainment (IFE) with monitors reaching up to 18.5 inches for the Business Class cabin. Passengers will also enjoy the convenience of USB power supply that are found in all seats ensuring that their mobile devices are fully charged by the time they land and start their vacation in the Philippines.

PAL is the first Asian carrier to offer the Pneumatic Comfort System (PCS) which has a massage function and allows the Business class passenger to adjust seat firmness.

The A330 is also PAL's aircraft of choice for nonstop flights between Manila and Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Honolulu, Tokyo and Osaka.

The flag carrier operates a fleet of 98 high-technology aircraft and is ranked as the 30th Best Airline in the world, having recently been awarded the World's Most Improved Airline honors for 2019 by Skytrax and the 4-Star Major Airline award from the US-based Airline Passenger Experience Association.
