Finally some really good news for NAIA

Wishlist:
1) Please pay extra care to the restrooms.
2) Please have a say in the shops—let’s get away from the Boy Bawang (no offence to that wonderful snack).
May I suggest: Team Manila and other great Filipino-made products from other graphic design teams/artists and artisans (think Manila FAME).
3) How about C2 Collezione? Or BENCH Pinoy Lab?
4) Can we have like McDonald’s/Burger King/Starbucks in the airport? It really helps when you’re in a rush to eat before boarding. It can be done in a clean, not carinderic way. Much as I love Jollibee, I think the international brands are more tourist friendly.
5) Can you take out those horrible souvenir shops that probably made sense in the ’70s but not today?
6) Can we improve the airport lounges please? Too small and too ugly.
7) Let’s give our passengers something the other airports don’t—FREE AND FAST WIFI PLEASE!!
8) I leave the rest to the commenters. Thank you very much.

I’d like to share an incident that just happened to my husband at NAIA 1 today. He arrived at the airport almost 2 hours before the flight.He has an OFW pass so he lined up in the lounge to get an exit clearance.There were hundreds of people in line,ni wala man lang maayos na sitting areas.Kawawa ang mga OFW sila pa ang pinapahirapan when they are the ones who should be given special treatment bec of their significant contribution to our economy.I don’t know why the line was so long,baka nawala yung tao dun in charge of issuing the clearance.My… Read more »

I flew in this morning and the lady manning the customs counter for “nothing to declare” asked what was inside our 1 luggage after asking how many were in my group. There were 3 as I was with my 2 kids. So what could be in the bag but clothes for 3 people diba? I was with a toddler who wore diapers. Baka she wanted the extra ones that didn’t get used? Crazy.

Susko, yang waiting area sa boarding gate, you have to climb down the makitid stairs. If you’re bringing hand carried luggage na medyo mabigat baka tumambling ka pababa. They don’t even have walkalators or travelators. Mabuti pa ang Sta. Lucia mall sa amin sa Cainta may walkalator.

I just feel the need to comment because I also am frustrated with NAIA 1. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t move all international flights to NAIA 3?? Anyways, summer of my junior year in high school (2 summers ago), a group of friends and I (who were Filipino-Americans who have never been to the Philippines, while I used to live in Cebu while growing up) traveled together to Manila. Since they’ve never been to the country, all I keep hearing from them prior to the trip was how they heard about the Philippines being so dirty and disgusting. I… Read more »

Ms. C, meron even at the waiting area near the boarding gates. Minsan super pagong nga lang but still tolerable.

Iloilo Airport is the most decent I’ve seen in the Philippines. It has coffee shops left and right of the building (when u buy, they give u password for wifi use). May Smokey’s hotdog, Red Ribbon and local sundry stalls. The waiting area is bright with high ceilings pa. There are a couple of tourism billboards. They were huge and entertaining to look at, at magphoto-op. I experienced delayed flights before but I didn’t mind too much because it was not a miserable place. You can meditate as you look at the runway and the ricefields beyond. Passengers look dignified… Read more »

But it’s too far from the civilization and the shops close by 9pm (if my memory serves me right) I had to plead the shop attendant to let me buy water. True enough, it’s a better airport than NAIA 1.
