The range of the A350 will mean that they can operate the flight non stop, from New York to Manila without the need for the Vancouver re-fuelling stop.

Philippine Airlines for Direct Flights From Manila To New York

Philippine airline has six Airbus A350-900 aircraft on order, with options for a further six more, which will replace their aging A340 aircraft. The first of these aircraft is to be delivered this month. It have 30 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy, and 241 seats in economy.

A350 Routes
The range of the A350 will mean that they can operate the flight non stop, from New York to Manila without the need for the Vancouver re-fuelling stop.

From October 29, 2018, All schedule for New York Rout by Philippine airline :

PR126 Manila to New York, departing 9:00pm arriving 11:35pm (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturdays)

PR127 New York to Manila, departing 1:45am arriving 7:15am (+1 day) (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sundays)

At 8,520 miles each way, the new direct flight will join the top 10 longest flights in the world, being just longer than the Singapore to San Francisco route, but just shorter than the Singapore to Los Angeles route.

As you can see below, without the Vancouver stop, the direct flight takes a slightly different route.

A350 Product
Fortunately with a new plane type, Philippine Airlines is also upgrading their hard products. Here is their 777 product, currently on the Manila – Vancouver – New York route in a 2-3-2 arrangement:

They’ve chosen the Thomson Aero Vantage XL 1-2-1 model, which is the same seat as you will find on the Qantas A330, and the new Delta One Suites (with their added sliding door).

It’s a solid hard product.

Here are the seat finishes, as installed on their A330 aircraft (images from AusBT):

There is also a small premium economy cabin a 2-4-2 layout with 38 inch pitch, and a fairly standard 3-3-3 layout economy section.

Bottom line
I’ve only flown Philippine Airlines once, in economy, on a much shorter flight to Hong Kong, and wasn’t in a hurry to repeat the experience.

But with new planes, new products, and direct flights, they’re becoming a great option for those who want to fly direct between these cities.

These new aircraft types are making direct flights between far flung cities a reality, and it’s a very exciting time to travel by air.

Current Alternative for New York to Manila:
Chaina Estern
JFK(New York) to Shanghai Pudong International Airport (One Stop) to Ninoy Aquino International Airport MNL

Jet Blue
John F. Kennedy International Airport (New York) to Los Angeles International Airport to Incheon International Airport to Ninoy Aquino International Airport
(2 Stop)

Is anyone planning to fly Philippine Airlines on their new A350?
