Citing a leaked internal Philippine Airline document obtained by the blog publisher, the aircraft would be registered RP-C3435,RP-C3436, RP-C3437, and RP-C3438.

According to the blog, Philippine Airlines will retain Iberia's cabin configuration featuring 36 Business Class seats and 218 Economy Seats for a total of 254 passengers. In Economy Class aboard the A340-300, Iberia offers a 32" seat pitch with a 17" width. 

It is unknown at this point whether Philippine Airlines intends to install its Video On Demand product or if the personal televisions at the rear of each seat would feature main screen programming. 

While this report is unconfirmed, we will continue to monitor various media sources for any developments. Once the first photographs of these aircraft are made available by Philippine Plane Spotter Group, we will be sure to share them. Any new information or photographs will be reported as it becomes available.
