Stupid AF! Malacanang blasts PAL, CebuPac for making passengers wait hours for cancelled flights after NAIA chaos
Malacanang slammed Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific and other airlines for making their passengers wait hours only to cancel these flights late in the day.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque this indecision and insenstivity of PAL, CebuPac and other airliness merely added to the confusion caused by the crash landing of a Xiamen airline which took nearly two days to remove from the Ninoy Aquino International runway
“We should look into contingencies. Kasi parang kaya naman nagkagulo, ang daming flights na dapat siguro kinansel na pero pinaantay pa rin iyong mga pasahero,” said Roque in a briefing.
“Kung talagang may mga delays, eh dapat siguro the airlines and the airport authorities should already decide to cancel flights nang hindi na mag-ipun-ipon iyong tao sa airport. Iyon lang po ang naisip ko diyan,” he added.
Roque was among the thousands of passengers stranded by the NAIA bedlam. He was trapped in the Davao airport where he claimed he slept on the floor along with other passengers waiting for their flights.
“Like iyong flight ko, siguro hindi na kami dapat naghintay ng seven hours, dapat iyon kinansel na nila para nakabalik ako kay Presidente. Nakikain ako kung saan man si Presidente at nakapagsaya pa ako, nagkaroon ako ng happy Friday. Pero wala, I was just waiting. Kasi iyong time na iyon, they could not tell me what time actually kami lilipad. So I could not leave the airport then for fear na baka naman ako maiwan,” he added.
