PAL adds class(es) to its A330s


Lufthansa Technik Philippines has performed comprehensive cabin modifications on eight of Philippine Airlines’ (PAL) A330-300s. The previously all-economy class aircraft have been retrofitted with a new three-class concept comprising 309 seats. The cabin modification campaign is part of a three-year base maintenance contract that Lufthansa Technik Philippines and PAL signed this year.

The new cabin concept, designed by the LIFT Strategic Design studio in Tokyo, comprises economy, premium economy and business class, with new seats (Thomson Aero Seating’s Vantage XL in business class), on-demand audio and video, as well as onboard wi-fi and Internet connectivity.

Other activities at Lufthansa Technik Philippines include a recent upgrade of its service capabilities to include next-generation aircraft. Preparations are underway to build up A321neo and A350 capabilities. The company will be ready for the entry into service of PAL’s new fleet of 21 A321neos and six A350s, which will be commissioned in January and June 2018, respectively.
