I had fun being with my fellow bloggers at the latest Philippine Airlines (PAL) event. It was even more fun knowing that PAL officially re-launched  its new Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity System providing passengers like me, a redefined, innovative and entertaining way to fly.

So what is  PAL’s inflight entertainment and connectivity about?  The system has four components: myPAL eSuite, myPAL Player, myPAL Wi-fi and myPAL Mobile.

Whenever I fly to San Francisco, I look forward to the movies that PAL offers.  It’s great to know I have more options now on inflight entertainment especially if the flight is more than eight hours.

PAL said that their  goal is to offer attractive inflight entertainment & connectivity services to deliver a pleasant travel experience to our passengers.  Their redefined inflight entertainment aims to move Philippine Airlines towards the vision of becoming a five-star full service national carrier of the Philippines.

The myPAL eSuite allows passengers to be entertained with over 300 hours of free movies, TV shows and music from either personal TVs or overhead screens.

Personal TVs are available on flights to and from Vancouver, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles via the Boeing 777-300ER.  This is what I look forward to when I will visit my sisters in San Francisco in 2017. As for the A320-200, which flies to Saipan, Canton, Jinjiang, Macau, Beijing, Darwin, Jakarta, Taipei, Xiamen, Bangkok, Bali, Port Moresby, Auckland and other international destinations, personal TVs are available on Business Class and overhead screens are available on Economy Class.
