Philippine Airlines (PAL) will temporarily suspend its Cebu - Los Angeles – Cebu service.  (PR 152/153 Tuesdays/Thursdays/Saturdays) effective May 30 this year.

PAL is the only PH carrier operating flights to the USA. It continues to operate 25 flights per week between Manila and the US Mainland - twice daily to Los Angeles, daily to San Francisco and four times - a - week to New York. PAL also operates daily to Guam and five times - a - week to Honolulu.

In December 2016, PAL began mounting double daily flights between Manila and Los Angeles utlizing the B777s giving passengers the flexibility to choose between morning and evening departures/arrivals.

The suspension of the Cebu - Los Angeles service is being carried out as PAL rationalizes capacity on the route.

1. Re-route their PAL CEB-LAX / LAX-CEB flights to PAL CEB-MNL-LAX / LAX-MNL-CEB flights
