I was hoping #9 would do this on its maiden flight homeward but it did not.....cityairline wrote:I also believe PR's 9th and 10th 77W are arriving in the coming days...
.....Instead, RP-C7781 repositioned to YVR and flew from there for its first revenue flight home.....

"Philippine Airlines (PAL) took delivery of its ninth Boeing 777-300ER and will use the new airplane primarily on routes from Manila to North America. The carrier flew the 777-300ER directly from Everett, Washington at 7:32PM US time Dec.14 (11:32AM MNL time Dec.15) to Vancouver, British Columbia, where the airplane will enter revenue service to Manila. PAL's 10th 777 will be delivered in a few days. The new deliveries bring the PAL fleet count to 88."
RP-C7782 will follow shortly.....
Here's Philstar's take on GMR-Megawide's leading position re CRK T2 tender.....
"The BCDA official, however, said the Megawide-GMR consortium is not assured yet of winning the project despite submitting the lowest bid.
'They are the lowest rated bid right now. But we’ll make sure they are responsive as well. So there will be clarification of the submitted documents,' he said.
'We’re going to do post-qualification in the next two days and then our board meeting will be on Monday so we’ll request for board approval on the outcome of the bidding, especially on the recommendation on the lowest rated and responsive bid,' Bingcang added.
He said the project will be awarded to the winning proponent next Monday with the project expected to break ground by Wednesday."

Yahnih wrote:I don’t understand why SEA would the preferred over SAN in the first place. SAN has a substantially larger Filipino population as they recorded themselves. If anything they should tag Las Vegas on the San Diego flight.
Yahnih wrote:If they do the 1-stop they have to remain competitive against JAL. & JAL 787s are highly regarded due to their low density configuration. Might as well make it non-stop to really sell the market. I hope that law gets amended to add more destinations.. SEA has a close promximity to both SFO and YVR that already have seamless connections in the NW beyond....
