Our excitement for the Bohol flight rely on how efficient and timed PAL’s departure here at NAIA Terminal 2. Our departure was supposed to be scheduled at 9:20 AM but because of the failure of the airline to get airport clearance in Tagbilaran, our flight was re-scheduled at 11 AM. 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 is a lot of time so instead of complaining, we’ll just make it more productive. By writing this “PAL’s flight delayed” article, instead.
In reality, it’s not just an additional two hours that we have to endure. Ask those people who came in two hours before the original departure schedule that was set at 9:20 AM. That’s not all. Imagine the difficulties of getting to this airport if you’ve come from the northern part of Metro Manila. We have seen the long lines at North EDSA MRT Station as early as 7 AM earlier and we bailed-out and decided to take a cab from North EDSA to NAIA Terminal 2. We paid Php 295.00 for the taxi ride but giving the notion that it’s more difficult to get a comfortable ride in the MRT, that was manageable. Thank goodness that the driver of the cab was not the usual scammer of their kind. We avoided the EDSA route and instead took the Roxas Boulevard which was swift although it took us an hour and a half to get to the airport. But that was worth the ride. We checked-in still ahead of the boarding time. And that we thought so.
Anyway, as our regular routine before the flight, we had our quick breakfast and we spotted Lola Babes kiosk. We ordered one-serving of Arroz Caldo with Egg and Minute Maid Orange for a total Php 158. That small servings of Arroz Caldo was amazingly priced at Php 128! Well, that’s how it is inside the airport. Everything turns gold.
Okay, we just took out 30 minutes and we still have to wait for another 1 hr. and 30 minutes more.
