It’s my first time to check in at NAIA Terminal 3.
Jeroen and I were on our way to Japan for our 14th wedding anniversary. From Pasig, Terminal 3 is faster to go to than Terminal 1. Terminal 3 is so spacious
We checked in three pieces of Rimowa trunks at Cathay Pacific.
Bearer of Philippine passports still have to fill out a departure card (not Jeroen).
No line at Immigration!!
There’s a shoe shine section waiting for customers
Tons of seats that that are not disgusting
Compare to NAIA 1
Here’s the thing: there’s still nothing to eat. Just dried mangoes everywhere.
This is not Mann Hann by the way. I wish it were. Very wrong!!
The food at the business class lounge doesn’t look edible. Nakahiya!!
So no, there is nothing to eat at Terminal 3 (and I’m scared of chafing dishes)
I would’ve eaten Krispy Kreme, but it was blocked by glass and barricades. No access for me.
They do sell Maltesers Teasers
And Birkenstocks (can’t eat those)
Here’s the best part of all: an odorless, squeaky clean toilet at the airline lounge. THANK YOU LORD!!!!
My stomach/bladder/ass thank you!!
Here’s what Terminal 3 needs to improve on:
1) Aircon. Hang inet!!
2) Lighting. Darkness + white lighting = depression.
3) Decent food choices with global-friendly brands.
4) Embargo on too many kinds of dried mango and polvoron. So boring.
5) Scenting. Seriously. Shameless plug: http://aom.ph
Other than that, we’re on our way. Baby steps.
As Field of Dreams said, “If you build it, they will come.”
One day, NAIA Terminal 1 will become world class. We hope.
