^^who knows, they might offer Clark-Manila route for only Php 300 per pax =) and then get as much passengers from Manila going to Clark na synchronized with their schedules
A fast train would really be the best solution with plenty of frequencies. And it has to be the private sector who should build this. Kung government, madami nanamang buwaya ang raraket at di nanaman matutuloy yan, tulad ng northrail project.
According to a friend from Cebu Pacific who was based in CRK too, the market there is over saturated. I thought all the while it was not coz they have the whole central to northern Luzon.
I dont know if it is just me, but I noticed when the tripple 7 goes on full throttle during take-offs, its seems so fast in the ground compared to the 747 and other aircrafts. Last time I flew out of Cebu on a PAL T7, the flight wasn't of full load and it seems like the pilot went on full throttle. We even haven't reached the terminal when the plane lifted. And it was just so fast, I can feel myself being pulled to my seat more. Maybe its just me, I dont know if others do have the same observation when riding 77Ws.
now, kung parehas lang ang magiging pasahe ng LCC from MNL kumpara from Clark? i think walang magtitiis sa hassle ng mahabang biyahe to Clark, kahit free pa yan. kelangang talaga mas mababa ang fare to sell.
I drove along DMIA at SCTEX a few days ago -- there's just too much room for expansion compared to NAIA. An efficient & fast transit would really make it promising.
At present, I will agree with the fact that Clark has Central Luzon and neighbouring provinces as share, especially outbound OFWs who are connecting to SIN/HKG via CRK instead of MNL.
Which is farther from the Capital cities?
Clark Airport to Manila or Kuala Lumpur Intl/LCCT to Kuala Lumpur?
After Metro Manila, the next biggest concentration of Filipinos are in Central Luzon, so, it just makes sense that they would have their own airport there, and yes, true enough, our countrymen from the north will now be able to fly by just going to Clark, rather than in NAIA.
It reminds me of the days when airlines would have to fly people from Davao who wants to go to Cebu to fly through Manila because there was no direct flight between CEB and DVO!!! BUT of course, that's not the case anymore.
Starting August 2011, Singapore Airlines is reducing it's SIN - MNL flights from 28 times weekly down to 21 times weekly.
Could they be feeling the pinch of the budget airlines proliferating between this busy route?
I just checked PAL website, there is still no change, they still fly 28 times weekly between SIN and MNL. I hope they can keep that up. I'd rather have schedule choices than wide-body aircraft...it's only a 3.5 hour flight, so I wouldn't mind flying their A320s between these two busy cities.
After several months from the launch of Manila - Delhi flights.
Can our friends from PAL give us an insight on how this flight is doing?
I really hope it's doing well.
Is there a specific reason why passport stamps generally speaking are of the same shape regardless of the country you are entering/leaving? I believe it's oval for entry and rectangular for exit.
Cebu Pacific to increase Kuala Lumpur flights
by Coco Alcuaz, ABS-CBN News Channel
MANILA, Philippines - John Gokongwei’s Cebu Pacific wants to increase flights to Malaysia to 14 a week -- twice a day -- from the current 10 per week, and it seems the Civil Aeronautics Board will grant its wish.
Cebu Pacific is requesting the right to fly an additional 720 passengers per week on top of its current 1,800, spokeswoman Candice Iyog said in a phone interview.
In a statement, the CAB said it will grant Cebu Pacific's request if no other carrier applies in the next 7 days.
CEBU PACIFIC MANILA-KL SERVICE
CURRENT REQUESTED ADDITION
PASSENGERS/WEEK 1,800 720
FLIGHTS/WEEK 10 4
Even if PAL wanted more flights, CAB could probably accommodate both it and Cebu Pacific. The board says it has an additional 1,260 passenger rights to assign this year, and the same number again next year, after the Philippines and Malaysia amended their air services agreement last month.
A Philippine Airlines spokesman said PAL and Malaysia Airlines, with whom it shares passenger rights via what's known as code-sharing, do not plan to increase request for more passenger rights.
The spokesman said PAL and Malaysia share their rights, equivalent to nine flights a week. All flights are flown by Malaysia, which PAL can sell tickets on.
Cebu Pacific is operated by Cebu Air Inc., a unit of Gokongwei’s JG Summit Holdings Inc.
