Philippine Airlines Flight Review: MNL to DGT, January 2011

Arrived at Dumaguete-Sibulan Airport

Note of these codes:
MNL - Manila
DGT - Dumaguete 
PAL - Philippine Airlines

Travel solo is also fun. Sometimes I want to travel by myself to gain more confidence especially when you interact with people. It makes me more aware on what was good in traveling solo. Actually, my plane ride to Dumaguete is my first since I have been to many airports around the country and it was my first time to land at Dumaguete Airport. It was supposed to be a Cebu flight since I attended my first Sinulog Festival in Cebu City. But due to full flights since most of them will also go to Cebu, I decided to take a flight to Dumaguete to also meet my friends and officemates there and also to visit again the city. I have been to this city almost 2 years and I am excited to be back here.

My flight was at 7AM so I have to leave my house in Quezon City at 4:30AM. I rode a taxi and gladly the driver used a taxi meter. It was a short 30-minute travel time since there were no traffic along EDSA. I arrived at 5AM and did my check-in at 5:15AM. My flight was Philippine Airlines and so I arrived at NAIA Terminal 2.

After I took my breakfast at Ya Kun Kaya Toast, I went to the gate S6 for boarding. However, the boarding procedures was done 15 minutes after. As I checked, most of the passengers were foreigners. I thought I was on an international flight. :)

Boarding procedure was fast and most of the passengers were cooperative. I also saw senior FAs in the aircraft. I quickly thought that there might be a check since the seniors were talking to the younger FAs. So it might be FA trainees. But anyway, I focused on the view outside.

Overall flight was good. FAs assisted us well even though some senior FAs were graded by their performance. They did not looked pressure and they served our snacks well. The landing at Dumaguete Airport was a bit bumpy, maybe due to shorter runway. I love flying with Philippine Airlines and I enjoyed traveling with Asia's First, Shining Through! :)

Daghang Salamat (Thank you) Philippine Airlines! :)
