Just like the normal corporate world, flight attendants in the Philippines will no longer be required to wear their uniforms on Fridays and they may choose to fly in civilian clothes during their flights or even on reserve duty.

Flight attendants in the Philippines will soon be playing another role, and that is the role of being a pilot.
