Philippine Airlines President, Jaime Bautista, expects the airline industry to remain weak until at least 2011, stating there is still a lack of demand (Manila Times, 22-Feb-2010). The carrier plans to continue offering low fares.
Philippine Airlines: “We are just waiting for the economy to recover and hopefully one year or two years from now the industry [would] pick up…What the airlines do is to offer attractive fares.
