New Philippine Airlines Business Class Seat – lie flat in the A330-300

From what I have seen, Philippine Airlines certainly does not win any prizes with its old recliner business class.

But even this rather old-school airline has caught on and is getting several new A330-330s with a new lie flat configuration:

The Business Class cabin features 18 Sogerma Equinox 3D flat-bed seats, and each premium passenger has access to their own retractable privacy divider, in-seat power supply, USB port and electrical leg rest with ottoman.

The new A330-300 HGW is also the first Philippine Airlines aircraft to include wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE), which allows passengers to stream content directly to their own laptops, smartphones and tablets. GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity is also available onboard.

According to this article the aircraft runs to the Middle East – a destination the airline hasn't served in a while.

Philippine Airlines is not part of any major alliance though talks have been close with OneWorld for some time.

The airlines loyalty program Mabuhay Miles charges 90,000 miles for a one-way in business class from Manila to Los Angeles.
