-Palitan lahat ng lumang tv ng LCD tv. Mura lang naman siguro LCD ngayon

-Yung gate 7 naman, lagayan naman ng escalator. Last visit ko, stairs lang.
-Palitan mga baggage belt
-Bakit pa kailangan ng pangatlong security check sa may gate??!! First check, sa pag pasok ng terminal. Second pagkatapos ng immigration. Third sa may satellite. Di ako tuloy makapag spotting sa kabilang satellite. Di naman necessary yang pangatlong check eh.

For all terminals:
-Improve ang announcement. Panay announcement sa check-in.
-Tanggalin naman mga kotong ng personnel pati ang lintek na terminal fee! naalala ko last na uwi ko, sa departure may porter ako pinagtanungan ko kung may escalator sa gate 7 since yung handcarry ko medyo mabigat. Wala daw pero pasimple pa para kumutong. Pinilitg na sya magbaba ng bag ko. Ako nalang nag bitbit.

Sa expansion, naku wala na pagasa yung NAIA complex since masikip na. Kailangan na talaga mag hanap ng alternate location. And my opinion, di option ang Clark dahil napaka layo. Wag rin naman na mangaya ng ibang bansa sa 2 airport system katulad ng Tokyo. Kaya naman sila two airport system dahil Tokyo is one of the biggest cities in the world eh. Ang Metro Manila, its not that big compared to the Tokyo area. Ang Tokyo, spread out rin. Concentrated ang Metro Manila. Gaya gaya talaga mga pinoy.
requirement ng head office ng ibang airline companies, walang kinalaman ang miaa don.

Added suggestions for T1:

• Improve shopping experience by either reducing shops or consolidating them under the Duty Free Shop. If we want to have a decent Philippine souvenir shop, we should bring in Tesoro's.

• Better dining choices throughout the terminal, as well as more cafιs and news shops. Is there even a Starbucks Coffee at the airside of T1?

• If not done yet, free WiFi all around the terminal. Also more efficient immigration lines and desks. And better electric signages, not just overhead signs made out of styrofoam or hard paper.

• Freshen up the dark check-in area at departure level by removing old fixtures and renovating the old walls... Perhaps replacing the solid, dark curvature made of cement with glass to provide more light for a welcoming experience.

Phl to ask Japan, South Korea to lift restrictions on local airlines

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - With the impending lifting of the ban on domestic airlines from mounting additional flights to the US and flying to Europe, the Philippines is asking South Korea and Japan to remove the restrictions imposed on local airlines.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has asked South Korea and Japan through separate letters dated March 5 to lift their restrictions that block the expansion of domestic airlines after the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) of the United Nations upgraded its negative rating on the country.

“In view of this development, it is our candid position that this positive report of the ICAO should pave the way for the prompt lifting/removal of any technical and economic restrictions that were imposed by the Japan-Civil Aviation Bureau (and Korea’s Office of Civil Aviation) to Philippine carriers,” CAAP stated in the letters.

The letters were addressed to South Korea’s Office of Civil Aviation deputy director Hye-Ryong Yu and International Transport at Japan’s Civil Aviation Bureau director Hirohishi Narahira.

It would be recalled that both Japan and South Korea cited the significant safety concerns rating of ICAO on the Philippines to block the entry of new flights by airlines registered in the country.

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) announced Satuday that ICAO has officially delisted the Philippines from its tally of member states with unresolved significant safety concerns.

Business ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1


In an electronic bulletin issued by the ICAO Council on March 7, the ICAO Council formally stated that the [Philippine] State has implemented corrective actions in accordance with the mechanism approved by the Council to resolve two significant safety concerns – the issuance of air operator certificates and the aircraft registration process – and that as a result, these SSCs have been lifted.

According to the DOTC, the resolution of these concerns has major implications for the economy.

“It not only strengthens our efforts to meet international safety standards for the aviation sector, it also boosts the government’s tourism goals,” the DOTC said.

With the delisting, CAAP could now focus on convincing the US Federal Aviation Administration (US-FAA) to upgrade the ranking of the Philippines to Category 1 after it was downgraded to Category 2 in 2008 due to significant safety concerns raised by ICAO.

“This development provides more motivation for CAAP to continue on the long road towards achieving Category 1 status and lifting the European Union ban on Philippine flights,” the DOTC added.

With the lifting of the safety concerns, CAAP could now focus on regaining the US FAA Category 1 rating. Category 2 status is issued by the FAA to the civil aviation authorities of countries that are non-compliant to ICAO Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) on international civil aviation safety.

Porters in the picture are from MIASCOR (if I'm not mistaken) and green polo-like top from PAGSS. I think there's also a yellow colored polo-like top, they are hired by the airport management.
Hhhmmm ... if they are not janitors then my mistake.

To put everything in perspective, the picture was taken in the departure area, after immigration check on the way to the gates.

If they were porters, should they be in that area watching TV with the rest of the passengers?

They are most welcome to take a breather if they need to. But to sleep (employee to the left of the TV screen, covered by the lady in pony tail) in full view of passengers is quite disconcerting.

The trouble with the whole CAAP mishap back then was that they installed a helicopter pilot from the Philippine military I believe to head the certification and recertification of pilots, which is why that is one of the number one issue cited by FAA, the absence of qualified personnel for training and recertification, while airline companies had been doing their part, the government failed to be discreet and deliver their proper services out of, perhaps, desperation to put someone in place to head that department since the Philippines has been losing skilled professionals from the international market overseas. It's actually beyond just work ethic. It'seven worst than that. And yes, there is no excuse for it. Somehow, atleast this time these issues has been rectified. Hopefully that would serve as a wake up call for the current administration.
Yes, I think everybody is aware of when it all started. And I agree with you it is beyond work ethic. I am just pointing out that it STARTS with work ethic. We lose good people because of our government's lack of drive to invest in them. Sabi nga sa tagalog, naghahangad tayo ng kagitna, isang salop ang nawawala. We are not willing to pay good money to these people, and we end up losing more in the long run.

The departure level looks brighter in 80's with the sunlight coming in from the second level, which I think is covered now.

wow... it was nice to see na dati you can enter the NAIA terminal 1 building if you're sending off someone... I remember when I was a kid that I was excited to enter the airport when my aunt was leaving for the US in the 80's...

though i no longer remember that it was that crowded in the building back then...

PhilStar again! hehehhe.. Hay sana nga tuloy tuloy na yung lifting ng mga restriction imposed on us by various civil aviation authorities. I would like to fly to Europe without using connecting flights in Hong Kong or Singapore or the Middle East.

As for NAIA 3, Sec. Abaya said it will be fully operational by December this year. He said he is going to Tokyo tomorrow to clinch the agreement with Takenaka. But the work on the structural integrity of the terminal has started already.

I can remember taking off from T1 all the time, and I would see a darker version of the building… talagang time na for renovations kasi yung picture, 1980s pa. It's 30 years after right now, so isn't it time to have a proper renovation? I recall flying with PAL, Cathay Pacific, Air France, and Northwest from T1 (before PR moved to the new T2).

20 or 30 years ago? United has returned to the Philippines when Continental merged with UA some years back, but it only operates to Guam and Truk, not Tokyo or the mainland US.

oh so well-wishers were allowed to enter the lobby then.
those were the times 'when people "dress up" to ride an airplane' or in this case, enter a terminal.

by the way, where were the check-in counters located back then?

First time ko sa Terminal 3 last weekend! Super ganda! I've noticed some on-going upgrades sa structure. Siguro this is part of their preparation to transfer all international flights to T3. I hope by the end of this year, doon na sila lahat.

I have to agree when it comes to employee sitting in that area resting and watching tv. It also irkes me.

The same as in T2. Cleaners using the computer station checking their own FB. I was a passenger back then.
