PAL PR 2773 refuels in Mactan Airport after it diverted from Tagbilaran because of the Special Ops by Presidential parties

That’s 2 hours of epic waiting and that makes you feel like you’re a prisoner inside the airport because once you’ve entered the boarding gate, you can never go outside. Supposedly, it’s good if the flight schedules are in sync with the schedule on your ticket boarding pass. 2 hours […]
