Everytime I go to Davao, I always go there via Cebu Pacific. I have no problem with them on the first 3 flights that I had, that’s why I’m surprised of the hassles I experienced on my last trip.
First. Our flight was delayed. Before, they boast of being on time, even on TV commercials. Now, I don’t see that TV commercial anymore, and now I know why. Our flight to Davao was 1-hour delayed.
Second. Before, they gave free snacks during the flight. The first time I went to Davao, they have some free snacks and drinks. Then, the next time I went there, no more free snacks, just a free bottle of C2. And now? No snacks. No drinks. Instead, they will sell overpriced snacks and sandwiches to you. Cebu Pacific, thank you very much!
Third. This is the worst. Last January 1, on our scheduled flight back to Manila, our flight was cancelled! Yup, it was cancelled. They said it was due to aircraft problem. No details given. So, they scheduled us on the next flight available 3 hours after the cancelled flight. Good thing there are still vacant seats there. And me and my girlfriend were seated far away from each other on that next flight. What can we do, we were just paningit. Imagine, we were there at the airport by 12:30PM for a 2:30PM flight and we boarded the aircraft at 6:10PM. And as a paconsuelo de matalino, all passengers on the cancelled flight were given free non-transferrable domestic one-way flight vouchers. Cebu Pacific, thank you very much!
That is not the last time that I’m travelling to Davao. There’ll be more in the near future. And with the experience that I encountered last time, I think, Cebu Pacific will be on my avoid-this-airline list.
How about you? What’s your experience with Cebu Pacific? Come and share it!
