Philippine Airlines A340-300 Business Class Hong Kong to Manila – Hong Kong Video



Welcome onboard one of the few remaining A343 in commercial service. As I continue on to Siargao Philippines, I bid my friends farewell at HKG. No lounge footage this time since I spent my time with my friends at the AMEX lounge. I will have footage of the HKG Amex lounge in a future video.
The A343 offered a surprisingly quiet ride, though the cabin itself is very dated. The 2-2-2 business cabin was standard for the 90s though now less competitive even on regional routes. The service was great and the two FAs in the rear J cabin were professional/polite and smiled frequently. Despite the full cabin they were always courteous and patient with passengers.

  1. The first time that i saw a Phillipines A 340 was in 1993 ( ! ) in Frankfurt on Terminal 2. Long time ago. Then i saw one in Sydney in 2011 and one in Bangkok in 2013. Lufthansa just retrofited all their A 340's and they have to stay in the fleet for at least 5 years more. They switch the service to LAX from an A 380 to an A 340-600 from Frankfurt.

  3. I've flown China Eastern's Airbus340-300 before in 2011 from Rome to Shanghai, well the big CRT overhead TV in the economy class really impressed me.
