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.
Relationships made, bonds moulded, friendships built, and for some, marriages sealed, a few of the many memories these group had regardless of where they are today. Twenty years has gone fast indeed when we do love what we are doing. Flying may have been simpler way back, or perhaps, harder. A lot of changes in a span of 20 years, changes like seat-back IFEs, safety demo videos, and a few more technological advancements. From Airbus A300s in 1997 to Airbus A330s today, Boeing 747-400s in 1997 to Boeing 777-300ERs today, from Boeing 737s in 1997 to Airbus A321s today. These cabin crew may be also one of the most versatile, a group that adopted to changes quickly and yet, managed to stay at the top of their game.
Allow us to take you to a journey to Philippine Airlines crewlife back in 1996 to 1997 from training graduation to a typical day on board. Memories never forgotten. Bonds strengthened over time.
