PAL Express Baggage Information

As PAL Express does not have extensive international reach (though the airline is reportedly in an acquisition phase for aircraft to expand its offerings), the airline has a baggage policy that can be deemed fluid. PAL air flights will generally allow checked bags up to 50 pounds, one or two bags at no charge, plus a carry-on item of up to 15 pounds. However, the airline is quick to point out that if your trip includes other carriers, usually those baggage policies will stand on a PAL Express flight. You are encouraged to check your connecting carrier to determine their baggage policies and work with those, especially if they are more stringent than the PAL policy.

PAL Express In-Flight Entertainment

When flying PAL air flights internationally on a Boeing 777, passengers are treated to the latest in aircraft entertainment along with luxurious seating, curtains and carpeting in the cabin. It may feel less like a plane and more like a living area, with water as the theme. PAL Express passengers are treated to a 9-inch personal television screen in the seatback, along with controls in the armrest that allow for on-demand audio and visual experiences. Each passenger has control of their own screen, allowing them to fast forward, pause, rewind and change programming at any time. Several of the latest Hollywood films are available for viewing, as well as a Filipino film of choice, along with a collection of TV programs. Passengers can also choose from several radio stations or CD collections. They can even create their own individual playlists from the CDs using the controls.
