If you think air passengers are the only ones who have rights, so do flight attendants. These basic rights of the cabin crew were placed there for them to be able to carry out their duties without hindrance in ensuring the security and safety of all passengers. The top priority of airlines has always been the safety and security of everyone including the crew on board. According to various treaties and conventions, flight attendants and stewards have 5 basic rights.
These 5 basic rights are for safety matters and are primarily there for the overall safety of everyone on board an aircraft.
In the Philippines, cabin crew members are protected by Republic Act 9497 Chapter XI Sec. 81 clause 9 which hereby states that Any person who, while on board an aircraft, interferes with a crewmember's or flight attendant's performance of their duties, assaults, intimidates, or threatens any crewmember or flight attendant, shall be subjected to imprisonment from one (1) year to three (3) years or a fine of not less than Fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000.00) but not exceeding Five hundred thousand pesos (Php500,000.00), or both, as determined by the court.
