thank you for following this report.
Nice services onboard.Anyway PR should improve standard a bit.
Wish to see MNL bonus on the next report!
The seat is an interesting product, with one passenger lower and closer to the floor and the other higher, with feet meeting in the middle.
I’ve always been intrigued by the PR A333 that comes to NGO, but haven’t found a viable reason to go to MNL. The cabin doesn’t look too bad visually, but I’ve never been a fan of this “tiered” Sogerma seat. Is this a new cabin? I always thought PR used angle lie-flat seats.
For a regional flight, catering looks acceptable. The bag of mixed nuts is KE-esque. Presentation of the starter on the banana leaf is a nice touch although I'd expect more than two small shrimp. You declined the dessert?
The tablet IFE looks small, and I always dislike them since they don’t contain the moving map. Overall, a decent offering from PR. Room for improvement, but comparable to the mainland Chinese carriers is probably good enough for their niche market.
Great photos on arrival in MNL.
Thanks for sharing!
