A person who is nice to you but is rude
to others is not a nice person.
I hate to be called an ingrate for the fact that I am enjoying free airfare to all destinations of Cebu Pacific courtesy of my sis who works in that company. But I hate rude people. Moreso when they "attack" the special children on their flights.
"Attack" may sound harsh but that was what the flight purser did to a special child (children to be exact because there were 2 onboard) on their Hongkong-Manila flight. According to Inquirer reports, the said crew allegedly told the Alcantaras in a rude and arrogant manner to deplane because of the policy that prohibits more than one mentally ill person in the same flight. As further alleged, even the pilot coerced with the purser. But they did not know that an addendum to that policy stated that special children are not considered a mental case.
Cebu Pacific apologized to the families involved and reprimanded their crew but the passengers did not take the rudeness lightly. They wanted to file a case against the airline.
I don't know if I were in the case of the purser would I-
- impose the government regulations over acts of charity?
- rudely ask guests (as they claim their passengers are) to deplane (get out of here) or explain to the concerned parties why they are told to do so?
