Philippine Airlines New Safety Video

The new safety video for Philippine Airlines puts a creative spin on a normally routine and tedious time for sky bound travelers. Entertaining and visually appealing, the new video uses a mix of special effects and comedic elements to delight and keep passengers engaged all the while giving them vital information to keep them safe during their journey. Putting a twist on the traditional safety video, Philippine Airlines’ short but effective production is a must see for all who travel.

June 22, 2014

We were out the door at around 6 o’clock with less hassle than I predicted. One thing I didn’t predict was the knot that formed in my throat as I waved goodbye to my mom with our dog in her arms. The fact that I wasn’t going to see them for almost a month hit me. Thank god for happy music ‘s ability to manipulate my feelings.

Once we got through check-in and immigration at NAIA Terminal 2, we headed to Mabuhay lounge. It was my first time entering this lounge. I vaguely remember a different lounge we stayed in when we were little. Little meaning I don’t remember most of it so this felt new to me. Everything felt new to me. Traveling to the U.S. for the first time. Taking an 11-hour flight for the first time.

Anyway, the lounge had lots of food. I mainly hovered around the desserts area where I took a bite of every sweet treat there was. Then I shamefully went around recording clips of the lounge for my airline/airplane-crazy boyfriend who I was also chatting with while waiting for boarding time.

Dad picked the seats near the emergency exit because he wanted extra leg space and that is exactly what we got. The space was a huge convenience since I could get in and out of my seat with less hassle.

So what did I do for 11 hours?

I ate. A lot. I had dinner, snacks, and breakfast. The food was superb by the way and the service was great. I also three movies: Wolf of Wall Street, Ruby Sparks, and The Book Thief. I didn’t really sleep a lot. I only slept for around an hour and a half.

We arrived at the San Francisco International Airport at around 8 in the evening. I was so surprised to see that I could still see from outside my window considering that it was technically evening. The sun should’ve been down by that time.

My first impression of San Francisco was that it was hella cold. I was sitting far from the door, waiting for us to be picked up but everytime it opened a shiver would go down my spine. And I was wearing a bulky jacket already!

I guess the day ends with me having a good night’s sleep while my dad struggled to. Hahaha. If you want a real-time view of what I went through head on over here and watch my flight vlog. 

  • PAL’s official NET income for 2010 $72.5 million or about 3.2 billion pesos
  • 3000 regular and loyal employees will be TERMINATED because the DOLE and other courts allowed PAL to outsource


  • Malinaw naman na hindi pa kuntento si Lucio Tan, PAL President Jaime Bautista, at PAL execs sa 3.2 BILLION. 
  • ISANG MALALANG KA-KUPALAN!
Sa pamunuan ng PAL

Sana piliin mong tratuhin ng tama ang lahat ng mga empleyado mo. Alam kong kahit pinto ng A320 di mo alam kung paano isara, at kahit itaya pa natin ang buhay mo, hindi mo alam kung paano mag-reserve ng kahit isang upuan para sa iisang pasahero. 

Sigurado din akong ayaw mong ikaw mismo ang maglipat ng mga bagahe mula sa tarmac papasok ng cargo bay. Ewan ko kung marunong kang magpalipad ng eroplano, pero sigurado akong hindi mo kayang liparin ang 60 domestic at 45 international flights na sa ngayon ay kanselado.

Oo nga’t may naipalit ka sa kanila na pwedeng gumawa ng lahat ng ‘yan. Pero balita ko, kulang na lang ‘di marunong gumamit ng radyo ang mga taong ipinalit mo. Parang hindi nila alam na hindi kailangang magbayad ng terminal fee ang deadhead cabin crew, o na obligasyon nila ang kaayusan ng eroplano bago magsara ang mga pinto.

Hindi mo sila masisisi kung magalit sila sa’yo. Oo, sa’yo sila galit, hindi sa mga pasahero niyo. Hindi ang paggambala ng biyahe nila ang dahilan ng gulong ito, kung hindi ang maling trato mo sa kanila. Akalain mo ba namang ilang taon nang nagtatrabaho sa’yo, sisipain mo lang dahil sa kulang na tubo?

No’ng hindi lumilipad ang mga eroplano, wala ka na ngang kinita, maraming naabala, nagkagulo na, nasira na ang mga gamit niyo, naglipat ka pa ng opisina. Pero sa bawat take-off na nangyari na sila ang nakatoka, nakinabang ka ng sobra sobra. Nakikita mo ba kung gaano kalaki ang pangangailangan mo sa kanila?

Gumagalang,

Marco

PS. Sabi mo, “non-core” ang services na tinanggal mo sa paraan ng retrenchment. Ibig sabihin, hindi ito ang pinakamahalagang serbisyo mo sa mga kliyente mo. Pero kung gano’n nga, bakit ka naparalisa nung tumigil sila sa pagtatrabaho?
