Philippine Airlines About Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines has been the largest airline in the Philippines since its inception in 1941. The country’s first airline dates back to 1930 and was called PATCO (Philippines Aerial Taxi Company). At that time the Philippines was under American rule. In 1941, PATCO became Philippines Airlines, and was then in charge of preparing for the possible Japanese invasion. Aided considerably by the American state, the company developed very quickly, bought out its main competitors such as Commercial Air Lines, which allowed it to become the main airline in the country. It thus doubled the number of its passengers between 1946 and 1950, with a total acquisition of 35 aircraft.

Since the 1970s the company officially belongs to the government. Privatized in 1992, it received its first Boeing 747-400 a year later. In 1999, it provided international flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco. It continued to expand its air network in the 2000s and began to serve cities such as Las Vegas or Nagoya. In 2008 the subsidiary PAL Express started operations. Here the customer has the option of booking cheap flights for regional offers. The airline offers both scheduled and charter flights. In 2013, it began serving nearly 6 new destinations. The company has also increased its fleet with the arrival of ten planes since 2016. Today, Philippine Airlines with its subsidiaries serves 98 destinations in Asia, Oceania, the Middle East and North America and has a fleet of 97 aircraft.

The airline’s frequent flyer program is called Mabuhay Miles. Here you collect airline miles in order to use them later for new cheap flights or upgrades. Within the program there are different member classes that entitle you to use ascending services. Philippine Airlines maintains several airport lounges within four airports in the Philippines.

Philippine Airlines Food & Beverage

In Economy, as in all Philippine Airlines booking classes, on-board catering is part of the service, which is already included in the ticket price. The airline does not provide much detail on its website. Accordingly, economy passengers should be pampered with a mixture of traditional and modern dishes at meals. However, sample photos on the internet platform show classics such as sliced ​​meat with rice and vegetables rather than a fruit salad as dessert. It should be possible to pre-order special meals by telephone up to 48 hours before departure, Philippine Airlines does not provide any further information about this service.

In the business world, Philippine Airlines advertises a generous selection between Western, Filipino and Japanese cuisine, but dispenses with sample menus and further information. Porcelain dishes can be seen in traveler photos. Travelers report on starters such as couscous, main courses with fish or chicken and branded chocolate or ice cream for dessert. So there is also champagne as a welcome.

Philippine Airlines guarantees the standards of a classic airline for on-board catering, but gives almost no details online. If in doubt, it is therefore advisable to contact Philippine Airlines before booking.
