Anyone Flying PR 100/101 Mabuhay Class?

I'm still confused about the 343 front cabin reconfiguration, especially row 1 legroom.

Most flights show rows 1 - 7, October flights are only rows 1 - 2.

If you happen to be up front and can take some photos I would be very grateful.

Maraming salamat po.

Did you check the aircraft type? On some days, PR 100/101 is flown by the A333, not the A343.

I checked many but not all between now and Dec 15, on both PR website and ExpertFlyer I'm only seeing 343s.

For PR 101:

On Oct 20, both EF (34E) & PR (340-300) show only rows 1 & 2

On Dec 15 both EF (344) & PR (340-300) show rows 1 - 7 (but there is no row 5, so 36 seats).

The 333 has rows 1 - 7 (including row 5, so 42 seats)

If that is the case, then on some days PR is operating the route using its own A343s, while on other days it's using the ex-IB A343s it leased.

The ex-IB A343s also have 42 seats up-front, I think PR is re-configuring a couple 343s and only showing rows 1 & 2 until it's done.

I'd really appreciate input from anyone who has actually flown PR 100/101 recently, since September.....

PR's 343 which use to have 1 F Cabin (Row 1-2) and 2 Business Class Cabins have been reconfigured to just retain the former F Cabin as its Business Class. The Row 1 and 2 of PR100/101 or non-ex IB aircraft will have only 12 seats in Business which was the former F class seats (old recline but full flat). The IFE is not AVOD and really very small. Economy seating has replaced the former Business Class section.

OK, thanks.

So the 343s with 6 rows are ex-IB?

So irritating, PR keeps changing equipment for our December HNL/MNL RT flights, this is the fourth change.

Every time it bounces from the 2 row Mabuhay to 6 row ex-IB they put us in row 6 and we have to call and argue to get row 1 back.

PR phone agents still have not been advised that all Mabuhay seats are the same and no additional fee is required for bulkhead seats.
