Philippine Airlines’ new Airbus A350-900 is set to make a temporary appearance on the carrier’s Manila-Los Angeles route starting September 28, with the aircraft taking on one flight per week for a period of approximately one month.
The short-term deployment comes as the airline prepares to permanently fly its latest aircraft on its non-stop flights to New York starting October 30.
According to Philippine Airlines’ current schedule, the A350 will take over flights PR112 and PR113 every Friday until October 19, with its Boeing 777-300ER operating the flights on all other days. PR112 and PR113 operate four times a week on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Philippine Airlines Manila-Los Angeles A350 schedule:
|PR112||Manila (MNL)||Los Angeles (LAX)||1125||1000||Sept 28, Oct 5, 12, 19|
|PR113||Los Angeles (LAX)||Manila (MNL)||1230||1825+1|
The airline’s other daily flight on the route, PR102/PR103, also will continue to be flown by the 777-300ER throughout this period.
