That would be too disappointing. I'd like to see the airport OPENED before the new BKK airport.

Haha yeah... I knew that Just that I felt it would be too disapointing if they opened it later than the BKK airport that was built later as well. ^_^

guys. i just watched the Amazing race kanina. The racers went to the Philippines and unfortunately, T1 was the one that they used. They had to take kasi Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific from Auckland New Zealand. Grabe. Ang panget talaga. Mas maganda pa yung airport ng Calcutta sa India which was featured 2 weeks ako on the same show. Lalo pang pumangit kasi ang ganda ng airport ng Auckland New Zealand, ng Hong Kong Chep lak kok chaka Singapore Changi which were all featured kanina lang. Nahihiya lang ako as Pinoy kung anong feeling ng mga foreigners. Kung tayo nga eh napapangitan na lalo pa kaya sila. hehehe

Yeah, it was indeed a let down coming from such awesome airports like SIN and HKG. Here's what I said in the Amazing Race thread.

Quote:
Also one thing I noticed last night....you know how they show interior shots of the airports where the racers are seen running through the terminal? Well, sad to say that they didn't show the insides of NAIA T1....guess that says a lot as to how ugly and inconvenient it really is. Shame..shame..shame.

well... as i said in that thread... maybe, its because there is no exciting scenes in their arrival... probably we'll see NAIA1 next week on their departure for the US...

I can't wait for the teams to try to get to their next destination before the others and try to book a flight on PAL. Oh yes, we might see Terminal 2 but hehehe....

Scene at next destination -

yup... we'll let's hope they book for PAL.. since no one can get in the airport without a ticket....but I doubt since most PAL flights to North America is early morning.... unlike the others which are at night.... unless they miss those flights...

PAL flights to North America depart at 4:15pm at the earliest to Vancouver. they could take that flight cuz they will be going into canada before heading back to the US, right...? flights to LAX and SFO depart around 10-10:30pm... if they are going into Canada, then there are bigger chances of seeing PAL and T2 cuz PR106 should be the fastest flight from MNL. hahaha... we'll just have to see, I guess...

They are going to Canada, not the US!!! So we might just see them going to T2 instead of T1.

yeah. they are going to canada. but remember guys, PALs Vancouver service is only 4x a week. What if theres no vancouver flight for pal on the day of their departure. also, i think that the racers wouldn't want to wait till the afternoon to get a flight. There are lots of flights in the morning that could easily connect them to their destination. sorry to burst your bubble but i don't think it is likely for them to use T2 going to canada.

BUT!!!!! Lets not give up hopes yet of seeing T2. Remember, the teams must still travel to palawan. Puerto princessa is served daily by PAL. But it is still not a guarantee because both Cebu PAcific and Air Philippines go to Puerto Princessa too. If the racers know whats good for them, they will book on a PAL flight. If they thought that NAIA 1 is crap, just immagine their reaction to the old domestic terminal. hehehehe

well.. they are going to El Nido and not in Puerto Princesa... Palawan has airports in Puerto Princesa (central Palawan), Busuanga, Cuyo and El Nido (northern tip of Palawan). I'm not sure if they are all served by PAL and Cebu Pacific....

anyways... they are here, as I remember last Feb 25 to 26th.

Roundtrip Airfare

its safe to say that t-3 is dead its so sad cause the philippines really need that terminal -3 almost in desperation not only to accomodate the passengers but also to give the philippines a positive image upon arrival. fraport should have operated the t-3 but greedy gma have to put her noise were it didn't belong.....i notice on the amazing race that the daughter of gma was at the finish line congratulating the contestant...she looks like t-1
