Philippine Airlines is the first Asian full service to add iPad for in-flight entertainment.
The airline announced that they will include customized third-generation iPads among the inflight entertainment options onboard all trans-Pacific flights.
The iPads will be loaded with in-flight entertainment options including full-length movies, TV shows, music, games, and even the latest newspapers and magazines.
The customized in-flight iPads will also contain PAL’s regular inflight reading materials such as Mabuhay magazine, duty-free catalogue, inflight meal menu, safety card, PAL promos and other popular publications.
PAL will be the first full service airline in Asia to have iPads inflight.
Both business class and economy passengers can opt to use iPad. There will be a charge.
Other customer-enhancement innovations unveiled include new inflight dishes prepared by five top-rated chefs and Book-and-Buy ticketing kiosks at selected Petron gasoline stations.
In the 80s Philippine Airlines (PR) were one of the enlightened airlines regarding in-flight entertainment. The flat beds in First Class are legendary, being many years ahead of other airlines.
PAL have fallen a bit behind over the years but are making big efforts in customer service again by announcing several innovations to enhance customer service.
