Airphil Express did us a huge favor when they cancelled our flight from Kalibo to Cebu last Sunday.
Buhbye Boracay. Sniff.
When we got there to the airport, there was a crowd already piling up in the counter. Turns out a flight from Airphil Express overshot at the runway and caused all flights to delay. We had no choice but to get another flight that is right for us the following day. Yes – we had to get on that damned one hour and a half ride again back to Caticlan because the flight was scheduled to depart in that airport. I am exhausted with complaining already and I found NO sense at all to berate people who clearly have no other ways to placate their customers.
Now the reroute took us to Manila on the 14th and my parents happened to be spending Valentines in Makati. Ah, another excuse to go shopping and dine and spend quality time with my parents. Lunch was at Dulcinea in Greenbelt where I was treated again to try out their bestselling potato soup, callos, steak, gambas and beef tips.
Oh, well. See, there’s always a silver lining at the end of the dark tunnel. I’m pretty sure there are others who were also bumped off in several flights from different airlines and although I really, really wanted to complain, the consolation was this.
Happy Valentines, world.
