Our eyes clearly do not deceive us; when visiting Europe we do see an
obviously superior analog television picture. However, PAL is not the source
of this superiority.

The source of this superior "PAL" picture is actually the additional 25%
bandwidth allocated to that signal and an additional 100 vertical scan lines
used per frame.
Perhaps.  Perhaps not.

Television Digest reported decades ago (in the black-&-white days) about an American television delegation that went to the UK in its 405-line, 3-MHz-video-bandwidth days and found the pictures superior to those in the U.S. There was much discussion about why.
