Has PAL purchased any B747-8s yet, similar to LH? And if it does, will it have a First Class service? I hope that PAL will offer flat bed seats for the F and C classes, if not suites for the F class.

Nope. No new widebodies ordered aside from the A330-300 high gross weight variants.

I think PAL might decide to exercise its options on the 77Ws, nos. 5 and 6 (if these are still on the books), or place a completely new order with more 77ws and possibly an A350 if the 787 won't be delivered within their preferred time frame due to the backlog. While all of us would like to see A380s ordered, it is highly unlikely based on the discussions done earlier.

If PAL will try to "revitalize" its fleet a la Garuda, they could go for first class cabins on select routes like LAX and HNL. But I don't think they will change the two class layout of future 77Ws unless there is indeed a First Class market strong enough.

Not directly related to Philippine Aviation news but Ramon Ang might want to consider buying relatively new used aircraft from Kingfisher. (or the whole airline itself to bypass the Category 1 restriction). BTW here is the a classic billionaire to millionaire case for the airline industry.

Kingfisher’s licence at stake
Wednesday, 7 November 2012


If the airline is unable to revalidate its licence, it will have to go through the process of reobtaining one.

Grounded carrier, Kingfisher, could face losing its licence to fly if management are unable to turn over its operations suspension before the end of this year.
The airline’s operations were shut down on 20 October this year by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) after failing to give a revival plan for its suffering financial situation.

Now, with the carrier’s flying licence due to expire on 31 December, the airline could be facing permanent grounding because the local law requires the airline to have its suspension revoked before renewal, The Times of India reported.
Worse even, if the airline is unable to revalidate the licence, it will have to go through the process of reobtaining one, which would require the airline to start from scratch in order to fly again.

"An airline operating permit (AOP, read licence) that is suspended cannot be renewed,” DGCA former chief Kanu Gohain said.

“A suspended licence must first be revived and only then can it be extended."

The airline’s chief Vijay Mallya told media the airline has to prepare a plan otherwise face three options; remain grounded for a long time, shutting down or restarting operations, possible under a new name.

Unprepared travelers hit with airline fees

We are seeing these happen already.

Unprepared travelers hit with airline fees
By Katia Hetter, CNN
November 6, 2012 -- Updated 2304 GMT (0704 HKT)


Spirit Airlines increased its fee to $100 for checking bags at the boarding gate. It goes into effect Tuesday.

(CNN) -- Don't simply saunter up to the boarding gate at a Spirit Airlines flight and think you can carry on your luggage for free.
That'll cost you $100 starting Tuesday.
While discount carrier Spirit Airlines makes customers pay for most carry-on and checked luggage, its customers could pay up to $100 to bring their bags if they forget to pay in advance
The airline has raised other fees as well. Carry-on baggage is now $35 if purchased during online booking ($25 for members of the airline's fare club) and $50 if purchased at the airport kiosk.

Your first checked bag now costs $30 if paid during online booking ($20 for fare club member), increases to $45 if purchased at the airport kiosk and increases to $100 if you check it at the gate.
You can still carry a purse, briefcase or other small personal item for free.
"Our goal is for no customer ever to pay the $100 fee," said Spirit Chief Operating Officer Tony Lefebvre in a statement. "By planning ahead and paying for bags before getting to the boarding gate, our customers are saving time at the airport and speeding up the boarding process. When our customers choose these time-saving, self-service options, our costs go down, and we can pass those savings along to our customers."

Airlines making billions from fees

Spirit's fees may seem extreme to some passengers, but most airlines seem to be making money from charging for services beyond the basic ride they provide. Additional revenue is generated by "a la carte" services such as snacks, preferred seating, luggage fees, commissions for hotel bookings and frequent flier mile sales to partners.

Airline ancillary revenue is projected to reach $36.1 billion worldwide this year, according to the Amadeus Worldwide Estimate of Ancillary Revenue, an increase of 11.3% over last year. That $36.1 billion is 5.4% of global airline revenues of $667 billion.

"As far as fees are concerned, airlines' attitude is, 'the more, the merrier,' " said Douglas Quinby, PhoCusWright's senior director of research. "Travelers who don't have enough mileage status to enjoy any exemptions should plan for some extra spending when planning their travel, especially if they are traveling during peak times around Thanksgiving and Christmas, when overhead bin space will be hard to come by."
Websites such as Kayak, Airfarewatchdog and FareCompare have convenient tables so travelers can plan in advance to some extent, Quinby added.

Fees for 'extras' likely to continue

Will passengers see more fees in 2013? There's no end to the creativity of airlines to charge separate fees for things that used to be included in the price of a ticket, according to George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.com.

Allegiant now gives a discount for paying with a debit card versus a credit card, and Virgin America has charged an extra $20 on some flights for seats closer to the front of the plane with early boarding, wrote Hobica in an e-mail. "We might even see fees scaled by distance flown. If these fees are really about fuel consumption, why should a checked bag flown 300 miles cost the same as one flown 2,500 miles?

"We may also see penalties -- er, fees -- for passengers who don't print their boarding passes, pay baggage fees and check in online before arriving at the airport," Hobica wrote. "Want to deal with a human at the airport? You'll pay for that. There's no end to the imagination when it comes to new and 'improved' fee structures."

I think PAL would be wrong to order the 747-8i; they are much better off consolidating their fleet around 3 types. 77W (replacing 744 and 343) for long haul, A330 HGW for medium haul and A319/20/21 for short haul. Obviously, there is the Cat 1 issue to overcome but an order for a handful of 748's would just be a bit of a vanity project.

The only thing is that Kingfisher doesn't own any aircraft, so there's nothing to buy. But any airline can shop around at the leasing companies to pick some of those up. But even without the demise of Kingfisher this wouldn't have been a big problem, there are plenty of relatively new used aircraft on the market right now.

btw, PAL's new 777 will land in Manilla in just over 2 hours.

Transport Sec. Abaya promises air passenger 'Bill of Rights' out before Christmas

This I gotta see before the end of the year.

Transport Sec. Abaya promises air passenger 'Bill of Rights' out before Christmas

The online news portal of TV5

MANILA - Air passengers who feel they got a raw deal may have something to look forward to before Christmas, as the Department of Transportation and Communications on Thursday said the long-promised "Bill of Rights" may be issued before the holiday season.

The fourth quarter is a peak season for air travel, as overseas Filipino workers and balikbayans fly back to the Philippines to spend time with their families and loved ones.

"We tried to push it out before undas, but was too short a time and it may cause confusion. What we want is to have [the order] signed and implemented before Christmas to benefit more people," Transport Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya told reporters at the sidelines of a forum organized by the British Embassy.

The proposed Bill of Rights is contained in Administrative Order No. 1, which the DOTC, the Department of Trade and Industry and the Civil Aeronautics Board would jointly issue.

The rules cover denial of boarding, flight delay, flight cancellation, off-loading of baggage, overbooking, advertisement of promotional and regular fares, re-fundability and re-bookability of fares, death and bodily injury, and express lane for persons with disabilities and senior citizens.

The DOTC promises the Bill of Rights would be a comprehensive solution to customer complaints.

Data from CAB showed that consumers filed 81 complaints last year, higher than the 77 in 2010. In the first quarter of this year alone, CAB received 21 complaints.

Of the total number of complaints, 45 percent pertained to demands for a refund; 14 percent, unfair practices/negligence of personnel; 10 percent, cancelled flights; 7 percent, delayed flights, denied boarding or lost luggage; and 3 percent, misleading advertisement.

From a cost efficiency and training perspective, yes.

The vanity behind having a jumbo or superjumbo will stoke pride in any Filipino passenger who will fly PAL. It was like being the first to own the original 747-100s and Concordes in the 70s, (and to be able to fly on them).

For plane afficionados and spotters, variety adds to the spice. But from a commonality perspective, the less, the better. Not too few models otherwise it'll be like an LCC (case in point: Southwest and its 737s).

Similar to AirAsia and its A320s. Or Lion Air with its B739ERs. I think PAL could be better off with the B748 until the new airport gets built... And possibly get A380s later on.

I think the cat is out of the bag, so it's Cayman Airways that RSA wants to invest on?

Quote:
CAL shares may be open to all
Posted on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 17:02 in Politics

(CNS): Following speculation that the premier had entered into talks to sell a substantial share of Cayman Airways to a Filipino firm, McKeeva Bush admitted Friday that the airline was exploring the possibility of selling shares but alongside the San Miguel Corporation local companies and Caymanians would also have access to shares in the National Flag Carrier airline. In a statement to the Legislative Assembly Bush said CAL had received a proposal from the Manila based company which owns Philippine Airlines (PAL) to “explore mutually beneficial ways of working together,” which included investment in the local airline code sharing, aircraft operations and other strategic areas.

Whoa... RSA to invest in a Caribbean airline? That's very interesting to watch since it is located on the opposite side of the globe, with a smaller fleet than PAL to match.

Budget airlines seen expanding int’l network

Quote:
Budget airlines are expected to do for international travel what it did for the domestic sector, which are to bring down fares and make plane travel more accessible to millions of passengers.

A report by the Center for Asia Pacific Aviation (Capa) released this week said budget airlines’ penetration in the country’s international market showed ample room for growth.

“The Philippines already has one of the highest LCC (low-cost carrier) penetration rates in the world, about 60 percent,” CAPA said.

The report cited expansion plans by several local budget carriers into the long-haul international arena currently dominated by flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL).

For instance, market leader Cebu Pacific has announced plans to start flying to points in the Middle East, Australia, Eastern Europe and the United States starting the third quarter of next year.

Zest Airways, owned by juice magnate Alfred Yao, also recently asked the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) for flight entitlements to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Like Cebu Pacific, Zest Airways will use Airbus A330 wide-body planes for its long-haul services.

CAPA said the PAL group, now run by conglomerate San Miguel, would be well advised to expand its low-cost sister AirPhil Express into the international medium- to long-haul market.

“Having a budget carrier for both the short-haul and long-haul international markets is logical given the strategy of PAL’s Asian peers and the fact the Philippines is predominantly a budget market,” Capa said.

PAL would be the third full service airline group in the region to launch a low-cost long-haul operation, joining Qantas and Singapore Airlines.

It is good to know that the Philippines is a large budget carrier market. But the next question is this: will this model last, even when full-service carriers enhance their in-flight products? If, and I only am thinking if, PAL could reinvigorate itself to the likes of CX, MH, or GA by offering better in-flight products -- and make them competitive with LCCs in terms of prices -- then there can be an even split of passengers riding PAL and LCCs, if not PAL versus 5J.

The US DOT has approved 5Js application for flights to the US.

Notice of Action Taken

5J though needs to use airplanes and crew registered in the US or any Cat. I countries.

That's a good -- and bad -- news for 5J since while it still languishes from the Cat II status imposed by the FAA nearly five years ago (CAAP, where's your solution to this problem?), Cebu Pacific can finally compete with PR on lucrative routes like MNL-GUM and MNL-HNL, regions where many Filipinos reside.

I then ask a next question: how about charter service to other airports in HI from MNL?

Cebu Pacific introduces Manila-Bali service
Manila, November 22, 2012

Quote:
CEBU Pacific (CEB) is set to launch twice-weekly direct flights from Manila to its second Indonesian destination, Bali, next year.

“CEB will launch its direct service from Manila to Bali on March 16, 2013, just in time for peak summer travel in the Philippines,” said CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, Candice Iyog.

The service will run every Tuesday and Saturday, departing Manila at 04.00 and arriving in Denpasar at 07.50. On the return leg, the flight will leave Denpasar at 08.35 and touch down in Manila at 12.25.

The offer is valid from November 20-23, or until all seats are sold, after which lowest year-round fares for Bali start at 3,499 pesos. CEB says this is up to 38 per cent lower than other airlines.

The Philippines opens its skies to more Thai traffic
Rosa Ocampo, Manila, November 21, 2012

Quote:
THE Philippines and Thailand have entered into an agreement to increase the number of flights between Manila and Bangkok, following talks in the Thai capital last week (TTG Asia e-Daily, October 31, 2012).

According to the Philippines’ Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), 1,480 seats will be added to the current 5,400 weekly seats connecting Manila and Bangkok, while both countries have given the green light to unlimited traffic rights between points outside the capital cities.

The additional seats translate to a daily flight to be divided between the country’s top carriers, Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Cebu Pacific, both of which use smaller aircraft of up to 180-seat capacity on regional routes.
