This is volume II. It has been a long journey making this thread together and we have come this far exchanging fair ideas. From May 21, 2019 onwards I hope we can continue relevant discussions about Airlines in the Philippines.
To start the salvo, PAL retained their 4 star rating from Skytrak.
There is also a fair review of the A321neo Business Class. Some of us here wanted to look how it feels like for a long time.
PAL is changing planes again to Sydney due to range issues associated with cargoes on board.
GAP got another A320 and another two are coming from PAL to supplement fleet for China-bound flights out of Clark, Cebu and Kalibo as mainline begins transition to all A321 by 2021.
And CEB got slapped on the wrist for their massive flight cancellations. CAB in their decision said that the airline rebook affected passengers free of charge. It does not say however about the plight of number of passengers who must travel on days not flown. A number of lawsuits are being prepared as we speak.
Royal Air makes inaugural flights in Davao and Cebu. I don't know how the A319 will fit in the mix as I would rather have more BAe146 for commonality, progressing to the e-jets in the future. At least they are making full use of the BAe before its gone, or until the avgas prices start to climb again.
