On Tuesday 28 April 2020, PR209, the 2030 hours MNL down to MEL (refurbished A333 RP-C8789) departed at 2151 and with little traffic around took off promptly at 2202, arriving on Wednesday 29 at 0721 hours, 51 minutes late.

The 0900 hours return flight has been delayed until at least 1000. It may be another repatriation flight for Filipinos.

On Wednesday 1 July 2020, PR212, the coronavirus pandemic 1035 hours SYD - MNL has been cancelled. Four others of the remaining 10 international flights today have also got the flick. This is unusual: on many days recently, SYD has been down to about four international departures a day.

PR210, the 0800 hours MEL - MNL was also cancelled. Victoria's Premier announced yesterday that international flights would be diverted for two weeks from MEL (due to the continuing spike in coronavirus cases in Melbourne) but it's doubtful PR knew about this sufficiently in advance to cancel this flight, so this 'no show' may have been due to other reasons.

Another day, Sunday 5 July, and a further cancellation of PR212, 1035 hours SYD - MNL. Generally airport websites only show flights cancelled within a day or so of departure, not ones that were wiped weeks ago.

On Saturday 25 July 2020, the increasingly rare PR212, the 1035 hours (A333 RP-C8771 - a 'high capacity' unrefurbished one with an unattractive configuration) took off from SYD at 1147 hours so arrival in MNL is estimated as 1741 hours, 51 minutes late.

Prior to the draconian restriction on inbound international passenger numbers per aircraft (and per day), during the earlier stages of the pandemic PR tended to have higher load factors than some other airlines, perhaps because its embassy and/or government was facilitating the movement of its citizens.

Despite PR209 from MNL having arrived hours earlier, PR210 on Wednesday 12 August 2020 from MEL up to MNL - a refurbished A333 in shape of RP-C7782, unusual as since coronavirus, usually the unrefurbished ones with crammed seating had visisted - did not take off until 1252 depsite being a 1030 hours departure. Arrival in MNL is predicted at 1845, 95 minutes tardy.
