Hello! Welcome to my first report! Pardon me for blurred pictures since I was in a hurry. It is short but I promise the next report will be longer.
This is a part of a four series trip around the Philippines starting with PR1818.
Here we are at DIA
Check-in was swift and easy
I forgot to tell you that we were supposed to be at check-in 45 minutes as usual before departure but the check-in agents were kind to let us in, and I still did a bit of plane spotting before boarding, but I only found a picture showing this Airasia Philippines A320.
Here is our plane.
Note:Pardon me for not taking any pictures of the view since I was behind the exit row, and I couldn't take any pictures.
The seat was nothing special, which is ok for a 2-3 hour flight, but having no IFE is unacceptable, no AVOD, no overhead TVs, not even a magazine, If you don't want to get bored on this flight, you better bring your own IFE/Magazine since there are none for sale. Legroom shot:
And then the snack service starts, it could have been better by expanding the choices of drinks and snacks, as you can see with other airlines, by the way, the snack was a biscuit with a choice of water or coffee.
The lavatory was clean, and I liked it that the flooring had a woodish theme, I forgot to take a good picture of it.
After a chat with my neighbor (By the way, she got a sandwich from the Y+ section from the FA, she was lucky!), we were on final approach, and I had another chat with the FA beside me(I was beside the jumpseat), on our final approach.
The arrival area was very dull, so I didn't even bother to include a picture of it.Believe me, the traffic was heavy, so if you are going here next time, leave for the airport 4 hours before departure.
Thank you for reading, my next post will be MNL-PPS, if you have any comments or clarifications, I would gladly respond.

It was a mediocre flight with PAL, but I want to clarify some things
Meal: It was pretty basic, but if you lower your expectations then you're fine (I gave it a 4because it barely passed my standards) Seat: Nothing special, but it could be barely bearable for a 2 hour flight, so I gave it a 3. OTP- Although we were delayed because of the congestion, I gave them an 8 for taking off on time. Crew- Was friendly but some of them were robotic.
As you can see I was strict in rating the airline especially that PR is the flag carrier of the Philippines, and a pack of crackers and a glass of water isn't going to cut it to be honest.
The airport summaries: DIA- Clean and spacious, but is showing signs of decay NAIA 2- Needs renovating. Also there is heavy traffic along the highway.

Thanks for sharing this first report! Reports on PR are kind of rare so it's definitely interesting to see. Overall the experience on this domestic flight seems low-cost-y
Welcome to Flight-Report!
Thanks for dropping by, and yes, the flight looked lost=cost-y by judging from it. It seems that PR was on another management when these new planes came in, so unfortunately the old management had to adjust from the new changes that the new one did.
By the way, thanks for adding DG and PPS for me.
Thanks for sharing this! Having new planes for the PAL fleet is very exciting.. but the interiors are very very disappointing. Especially that they use it for international flights. No IFE, and the small legrooms.
I really believe PAL much better than this.
I'm sorry for this late reply
Yes, I liked the fact that the plane was new, but interior-wise, I still prefer the old one, which was comfortable for me. Not to mention the drop down tvs
Well, I think personal IFEs won't work for a narrowbody, but for sure, an A330 needs a concrete IFE system for those who don't have laptops or ipads. The legroom was ok for me though, but the snacks were a disappointment, but I believe they have changed their catering to Goldilocks now, but let's see
Thanks again for dropping by!
