While those ugly counters have an excuse for being so gaudy, the toilets don't. The tiles are indeed messed up, but then again, this isn't a country that's known for its spectacular public toilets. The design of the tiles is similar to that of HKIA. Then again, as long as its kept clean, it should be okay. After all, HKIA's bathroom walls don't look that bad.

Um not similar to HKIA, its different. HKIA bathroom is marble.

I just noticed how the ceiling in this part of the terminal (image above) is similar to the VVVVV-shaped roof of the Check-In area that is visible from the exterior of the terminal (image below). look at the wall on the left (image above) and you can sorta see how the ceiling slants up and down the same way...



I love the ceiling design at Terminal 3! almost as good as the beautiful wodden ceiling design of the old NAIA Terminal 1...

I think this part of the terminal is one of the concourses. But the gate 114 on the rght side is unfinished because there are no chairs.

The yellow paint scheme represents the color scheme of our flag much the same with the blue and red paint scheme. The flag of the Philippines represent the whole population of the Philippines. Your statement regarding the yellow color as a color representing Ninoy and his followers and thereby the reason why it was used as the color scheme at the airport is not entirely true. What about the others representing the fallen dictator Marcos. Not that I am fan of Marcos but it is better to explain to someone that the color scheme of the airport was taken from the colors of our flag which represents everyone in the Philippines as a whole nation. Check the logo of the airport.

International (bottom) and Domestic (top) Terminals in NAIA


In terminal 3 i hope they will going to extend the right concourse by additional 6 contact gates in the future because int his photo we can see that the concourse is expandable. They should build contact gates for Airbus A380.

The area shown in the picture is the departure lounge you reach just after clearing the security check. The unfinished area to the right is supposed to be rented out to shops. Gate 114 is further to the right. In fact, you can see some of the chairs if you look past the unfinished area. The security check is located on the left. The area above the shops is supposed to be used for airline lounges. The duty-free mall is located at the very end of the hall way.

Based on the signs inside the terminal and on the apron, there are 20 contact gates numbered 101 through 120, and 8 remote gates 121 through 128. although gates 102/103 and 105/106 share the same departure lounge.

Actually, I got the above information because one of my students is a transportation engineer working for PIATCO, and he gave me a floor plan of the building identifying the various retail areas, and locations of the various gates within the terminal. However, MIAA might have other ideas as to how to use these areas now that they are in possession of the terminal.

I also forgot to mention that the areas on the left which seem unfinished are also supposed to be rented out as shop space. The area is fairly big as this picture was taken in the middle of the hallway and shows only half of the total area.

In my previous posting I called the area a departure lounge. Actually I think a better description should be a pre-departure lounge. This is basically the area where you shop around and wait before going to the waiting area at the gate. In the original plans, the ceiling was supposed to have an articulated skylight. But I guess they modified the design to save on air-conditioning costs. I also forgot to mention that the windows at the end of the hall way on the fourth floor allow people in the public areas to see the person they are sending off after the have cleared the security area. In the public area shown in the photograph is actually the fourth floor food court.

There is also a greeters lounge on the second floor that looks into the bagage claim area such that you can see the person you are meeting just after he has cleared immigrations and goes down the escalator to the bagage claim area.

Some of the pictures of the roadway partially show the parking area for public vehicles (tour buses, and taxis) as there is a separate arrival lobby for this which is at the side, in contrast to the main lobby which is in front.

This area with low ceiling is the immigration area.
To be more specific, the immigration area of the departure area.

Why does PAL stop in Honolulu while most other flights do not?

My girlfriend just got back from the Phillipines (arrived in San Francisco PAL flight#104) and she mentioned the plane had to stop in Honolulu to refuel.
Air New Zealand flies non-stop in both directions with the same aircraft type (747-400) and does not need to refuel in Honolulu and I also believe the SF to Auckland route is longer than a SF to Manila route. Any answers as to why?

AKL-SFO and return is actually shorter than MNL-SFO, and it doesn't have to fight winds head on. While Auckland may seem to be farther, bear in mind that the world is round. There's a lot more ground to cover when you're travelling along the equator. Besides, even CX 744s stop over at ICN sometimes on their way to Hong Kong from the US west coast.

That, and PAL flights are filled to the brim

No doubt about it. PAL flights are always full and I believe on Fridays PAL has two flights out of SFO one at 9:00PM and their daily at 10:15PM. I live in Daly City were Filipino's are the majority population and I don't understand why PAL does'nt operate two dailies. With the large population of Filipino's in the San Francisco Bay Area and no other carrier offering direct service (not even United which has their main Pacific hub at SFO) you would think PAL would offer an extra flight because I know it would pay dividends. Can't wait to see the new terminal 3 when I travel there next year!!!

Observe more carefully and at the same time look at the logo of the airport.

PAL doesn't have enough planes to send to the United States They only have 5 744s, and 4 A343s. If PAL had the cash, it would send A380s to the west coast (also, if they had the cash, they'd start caring a little more about their passengers )

Oh, and I wouldn't put any money on seeing an open Terminal 3 while recent developments are encouraging, we've grown used to the fact that ANYTHING can happen
