    Anyone else wondering why EVERY ONE of these cancelled flights is PAL or Airphil Express (PAL’s sister company), while other carriers (SQ, TG, CX) seem to have no problems landing their flights at NAIA?

    • $2931613

      Because with PAL its safety first before profit, but for other airlines, it is the other way around

      • riza888

        Safety first?!? That’s the reason PAL was blacklisted by EU in the first place – poor safety standards.
