Our carrier to Osaka was again Philippines Airlines. This time on an Airbus A330-300, the largest plane in the fleet.
The flight was a breeze. Instead of having screens in the back of every set they had free movies streaming through the plane's wifi. Every device also had 15 minutes of free internet access.
