There is no stopping Philippine Airlines from getting that 5th star. Just early this morning, the airline's very first Airbus A321NEO touched down at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This is the very first frame to arrive with 5 more to be delivered within this year. Philippine Airlines ordered a total of 21 Airbus A321NEO.
This is also the very first single aisle aircraft of Philippine Airlines to have full flat business class seats, individual seatback IFEs in all classes, and WIFI accessibility. This A321NEO has 12 business class seats and and 154 economy class seats. Philippine Airlines will be flying this aircraft to Australia, India, Maldives, and other regional destinations. This aircraft can fly 8 hours non-stop.
The A321NEO is powered by Pratt and Whitney PW1100G-JM engines.
Philippine Airlines selected the A321NEO for its range, comfort, and efficiency. On top of the 6 Airbus A321NEOs, PAL is also expecting 4 Airbus A350-900 to be delivered by this year.
We hope they get that 5th star sooner!
