"Quiet area, spacious legroom"

(Saudi Arabia)

Trip Verified | 23D (Aisle), used to be Premium Economy Class got this seat with an extra charge SAR220, MNL/RUH. Again, full flight since it was after the 5 day Holiday of Ramadan. Quiet area, spacious legroom, and your knees will not touch the seat in front of you. Warning, this area is cold, so I advice that you bring a jacket or sweater to be comfortable, or use the blankets issued by the airline. Also the advantage of this seat is the easy access of disembarking the plane upon arrival to your destination. Overhead compartment is ample - but sometimes there are some supplies for the flight in the storage. So you can use other compartments that are available nearest to your seat. So as not to feel cramped, once the plane is on cruising altitude, lift the armrest so you can feel free to move while seated. Likewise in the aisle seat, you can lift the armrest by pushing a lever in the hole under the armrest so you can leave your seat even if your tray table is open. Seat power supply (3 pin) is under the seat with a green light which you can use for your tablet and watch in flight entertainment using My PAL application. I have reserved this seat on my next flight in August.

"seats are comfortable"

(Saudi Arabia)

Trip Verified | Seat 22D, used to be Premium Economy area for RUH/MNL. There is no Premium Economy in the flights from RUH/MNL/RUH, instead you have to pay additional SAR220 to get these seats in this cabin, which I did. this is the middle seats on the left aisle. There is a charging outlet (3 pin) at the bottom of the seat - right side with a green light. The seats are comfortable with a spacious legroom, and you can put your bag under the seat in front of you. the trick so as not to feel restricted is to lift the arms of the seat both in the aisle and on the middle seat. There is a lavatory in this area, and as an improvement, not so much passengers from the next cabin are using it. This seat is more quiet, and after watching 3 movies, I slept until the flight arrived Manila.

"aisle seemed narrower than usual"

(Philippines)

Trip Verified | Seat just have the basic pocket storage with no extra sleeves for smaller items and no outlet. The recline has not much angle and not enough legroom that the person on the aisle seat has to stand up when you want to get out. The aisle seemed narrower than usual as the cabin bag cannot be pulled without hitting the arm of the chair.

(Philippines)

Trip Verified | The seat has more than enough legroom, extra width, reclines comfortably, has comfortably soft leather seat, and just enough storage for this small aircraft.

"wider seat and more legroom"

(Philippines)

Trip Verified | With PAL’s newest A330-300 aircraft, it has wider seat and more legroom that the passenger on the inner seat can now get off his seat without disturbing the aisle passenger to get up. It lacks accessories like hanger for jackets, power supply and smaller pockets on the magazine storage.

"seat is more comfortable"

(Philippines)

Trip Verified | For a domestic flight, the A321 seat is now wider and has more legroom that even the passenger beside you can pass through the aisle passenger without the latter standing up. The seat is more comfortable.

"narrower 17 inch seats"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Boeing 777-300ER seat layout was 3x4x3 with narrower 17 inch seats. Leg room was never a problem even though I'm 6' tall but the width of the 17 inch seats leaves me with bruises from the armrests on my thighs. They don't offer Premium Economy Seating on the North American Route, which they should.

"new reconfigured seats"

(Saudi Arabia)

Verified Review | Seated on seat on Premium Economy 24G, beside the Lavatory on my right side. There is a space at the back of seats 24 E/F/G where some passemgers on the next cabin (Economy) stand and queue for the lavatory. Some passengers talk so loud I cannot sleep. Seat space is okay, more legroom and seat recline is not full - but at least it reclines. Seat is comfortable with the pillows provided. it is quite cold in this section - during both flights I took. All in all, Premium economy cabin is better now with the new reconfigured seats. The Galley is just at the back of this seat separated by a wall. At times the FA's park the trolley at the space at my back and i can get water and soda at my convenience.

"recline on these seats pretty superb"

(Philippines)

Verified Review | I took a Philippine Airlines Flight PR 334 to Xiamen a few days ago. I was seated on 44K which was a window seat. The seats were cloth type and soft but you can tell that this aircraft is quite old already. I really prefer the cloth ones over the leather seats because I do find them more comfortable. I also think the recline on these seats are pretty superb, they do lean far back. I also had good views of the plane on my seat because I am also just behind the wing, so I did get some excellent footage and shots of my trip. The seats did not have individual TV but there was a TV a couple of rows in front of us. Because it was a really short flight, I didn't bother watching TV anymore. They had some short TV shows playing. They provided headsets for those who want to watch TV and also to listen songs. I didn't like the selections so I didn't bother listening at all. I wish they had more updated music selections. The seat did not have power supply or a USB Charger available.

"touching the seat in front of me"

(Australia)

Verified Review | Philippine Airlines is configured 9 across (3x3x3) in Economy, when most airlines use 8 across (2x4x2) layout. I am not a tall person but my knee was touching the seat in front of me making for a very uncomfortable journey. Thankfully this leg was a short journey of nearly 2 hours Hong Kong to Manila. With my knee touching it made it difficult to stretch out.
