What Is Sky Marshal?

My niece who is an IT major was able to download a movie online entitled “Non-Stop”, he is a sky marshal at that movie trying to protect all the passengers on board from a possible terrorist on the plane. Sky Marshal, that profession taunted in my mind, I mean so there is a profession like that in the plane, not only stewardess and Pilot on board on the plane but also there is a sky marshal who would protect when threats comes out. Sky Marshall won’t come out in the open; they will just hide as one of the passengers on the plane. You cannot tell them that they are a Sky Marshall. Sky Marshals are an undercover agent who would counter possible hijacking in the plane. El Al is one of the airlines that would provide Air Marshal. I am not sure though if commercial planes in the Philippines would provide Air Marshall or airlines from Philippines to abroad, although husband said he would like to think that Delta Airline has them.

Be Nice Even You Are In The Authority

I first saw the complaint in Facebook about Cebu Pacific crew; a mother and a kid were being stopped to board on the plane because the passport of the kid as what the manager said it was damaged. The mother begged to have them board on the plane because the kid have a check-up appointment in Vietnam and they need to be there for the child’s health. The manager shouted at them and said he have the right to stop them because he was the manager. The mother went to the Airport Authorities to file a complaint and to check if the passport can really not be accepted, but the Airport Authorities told them to go to DFA, the DFA then told her that it was not damaged.  The Cebu Pacific investigated the incidence and suspended the said manager.

Yes, we are concern about our passengers safety as the Cebu Pacific said that the staff just want to make sure if the Vietnam airport will accept them or not. But we don’t have the right to yell at any passenger even if they have faults or not, customer service should still imply even if the customer is already mad at you. Be nice even you are in the authority.

Airline Promotions

My sister keeps on informing me that some airline has promotions this week. She said in going abroad like Thailand, Singapore, and Hongkong, the fare does not even reach more than a thousand. I just shrugged because I know even how low the fare is, if ever I would grab the opportunity, I would still not enjoy it because my husband is not with me. Traveling with him is a dream come true to me, I know I just have to be patient to wait for the right time for him to come here and then we surely would travel together.
