Into the West (Coast)

I had the honor of celebrating the introduction of Philippine Airlines upgraded service to the United States on its 777-300ER fleet. PAL hosted an event at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills to mark the only non-stop flights from the West Coast to Manila— deploying 777-300ERs to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The airline’s 777-300ERs were previously only used on long-haul flights to Australia, Canada and to London.

Congratulations to PAL on their new West Coast routes as they use the 777-300ER to expand their global reach.

Mabuhay to everyone. PAL is getting its mojo back.

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

Those 777s are going to have good passenger loads being the only airline going from LA and SFO to Manila. Congrats to PAL on the 777s and their successes ahead.
