The 6,661-mile flight is blocked at 11hr35min eastbound and 14hr5min westbound. Philippine Airways will use a Boeing 777-300ER for the route, that includes a complete of 370 seats. That is comprised of 42 enterprise class seats (in a 2-3-2 configuration) and 328 financial system class seats (in a 3-4-3 configuration).

This will probably be Philippine Airways’ sixth vacation spot within the US, because the airline additionally flies to Guam (GUM), Honolulu (HNL), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), and San Francisco (SFO).

Some context on Philippine Airways’ new route

Philippine Airways including service to Seattle has been within the works for a very long time. Initially the airline introduced plans for this route again in January 2020, with an anticipated launch date of Might 2020. Given the pandemic, the route was placed on maintain, as you’d count on. So it’s good to see it return, although over 4 years late.

It’s attention-grabbing to see how the airline has weathered the pandemic. In 2021, the airline filed for chapter safety, and considerably shrunk its fleet. Then in 2023, the airline positioned an order for 9 Airbus A350-1000s, simply shortly after dumping a few of its present Airbus A350-900s. So the airline appears to have the aim of rising once more quickly.

Philippine Airways actually gained’t have any points filling these flights, the query is simply if the yields will be midway first rate. The airline promotes how the state of Washington has the fourth largest Filipino inhabitants in the US, how Seattle is a high-tech enterprise hub and thriving port metropolis, and the way this can add 60 tons of cargo capability each week between the 2 cities.

I’m curious to see if Philippine Airways establishes any partnerships in Seattle, presumably with Alaska Airways. Some connectivity may assist this service, and Alaska Airways is often joyful to work with airways outdoors of the oneworld alliance.

Seattle has been booming with Asia flights through the years, which isn’t shocking, given town’s geography, inhabitants, and enterprise. This 12 months is particularly spectacular for transpacific progress, when you think about that China Airways, Delta, and Starlux, are all launching flights between Seattle and Taipei. Now there’s one other participant throughout the Pacific.

Backside line

As of October 2024, Philippine Airways is including a 3x weekly flight between Manila and Seattle with a Boeing 777. This was initially alleged to launch in 2020, however has been delayed as a result of pandemic.

It’s good to see Philippine Airways increasing once more, although the 777 isn’t precisely an important passenger expertise. I’m trying ahead to seeing what the provider’s new A350s are like.
