Lucio Tan rebrands PAL’s premium economy offering to cater to discerning passengers

Good news for domestic flyers looking to add a little more comfort and premium service to their in-flight experience.

Ultra bilyonaryo Lucio Tan’s Philippine Airlines is renaming its domestic premium economy service to Comfort Class effective September15.

Passengers flying on Comfort Class will enjoy a more comfortable and convenient flight experience . They will have priority check-in and boarding, a 25 kilogram free baggage allowance for checked-in baggage and 100% mileage accrual for Mabuhay Miles members.

Comfort Class will be offered on all domestic flights operated by PAL’s Airbus A330 Bi-class, Airbus A321ceo, Airbus A320 and De Havilland DHC-8-400 Next Generation aircraft.

“We will continue to look for ways to enhance the overall travel experience of our passengers, on the ground and in the air, as the Philippines’ full-service network airline,” said PAL vice president for marketing Ria Carrion-Domingo.

In addition to the newly rebranded Comfort Class, travelers on PAL domestic flights will have the option of flying on Business Class (on selected routes served by A321 and A330 aircraft), as well as PAL’s mainline Economy Class (all aircraft).

On international flights, PAL will continue to offer a full Premium Economy service on its Airbus A350 and A330 tri-class aircraft, featuring a separate private cabin and specially designed wider seats equipped with personal video entertainment screens, legrests and extra recline, along with a seat pitch of 38 inches.
