Can understand why Norwegian Air Shuttle does this, Norway's socialist rule makes it difficult to compete globally.

I'm more amazed why Philippine Airlines (PAL) does not rule Asian international air travel. With a huge educated workforce and ultra-low wage requirements, PAL has all the ingredients to deliver high quality services at low cost fares.

Looks like they can't overcome the massive corruption that plaques the Philippines...
The picture sure looks like a 737-800. At least that's what the tail number says.
