Early growth pains and differences of opinion over fleet plans and hub strategy led to tensions between shareholders and a change of management in the fall of 2005. Peter Foster, a former Cathay Pacific Airways executive who led Philippine Airlines` rehabilitation team in 1999 before becoming CEO of Royal Brunei Airlines, was appointed chairman of the airline on October 1, 2005. Long-term development plans and management structures were put in place and have remained largely unchanged since then. The airline was still profitable and was in the top 20 most profitable airlines in the world in 2010, 2011 and 2012, according to the Business and Air Finance Journal, which ranked it 20th in its 2015 survey of airlines` global financial ratings, with a score of BBB.
