Two semesters ago, I went back to school to pursue an academic path that was long overdue. I went back to my alma mater, took the entrance exam and as the cliché goes, the rest is history. I am a Cabin Crew Supervisor and a concurrent graduate school student in Industrial Relations (IR).
We have been reading stories and seeing many complaints of passengers against cabin crew members. More so, they do blame flight attendants for every unnecessary commotion on board. Things like “if the flight attendants did their job, then there would not have been this….” and things like that even if the situation is beyond the control of these cabin crew members. We have seen passengers treat these cabin crew members as their butlers, asking them to stow their bags on the overhead bins even if the passenger is physically fit to dead-lift a 100 pound barbel.
Twenty years had quickly went by for these Philippine Airlines cabin crew. They had experienced the best and the worse of Philippine Airlines and yet, some are still flying for the airline whereas some too had decided to move careers. Regardless of what it is, once a cabin crew, forever a cabin crew! Have you been wondering how it was to be a cabin crew of Philippine Airlines from 1996 to 1997? Well let us take a look back 20 years ago.
