Philippine Airlines to start flights to Toronto

Recommended Posts

Philippine Airlines will launch service to Toronto starting Nov. 30, three times a week. Eastbound sector will operate nonstop, but Westbound sector involves a stop at YVR presumably because of prevailing winds, requiring more fuel.

On the other hand, they are dropping service to Las Vegas.

I never thought PR extending to YYZ is a smart move. Either MNL-YVR-YYZ or MNL-YYZ-YVR cannot please both YVR and YYZ paxs. It just add cost without much extra revenue. PR is better off to terminate at YVR and code share YVR-YYZ with WS or AC.

PR is better off keeping YVR-LAS where one crew can do YVR-LAS-YVR (vs 2 crews for YVR-YYZ-YVR extension) and the flights are always full with YVR originating tour groups and casino VIPs (casino pay for the airfare).

MNL-YVR is now subject to competition from Mainland Chinese airlines such as China Eastern offering lower fare YVR-PVG-MNL than PR non-stop YVR-MNL.

Just a shame that PR can't sell seats on the YVR - YYZ sector ... would help the route survive and give us Canucks a bit more of an option. Time to wake up Canada, its the 21st Century ;)
