I just have some concerns regarding the Iloilo Airport Security. My mother travelled yesterday, Feb 8, 2009 aboard in Philippine Airlines PR144 Iloilo to Manila. Her money worth 9,000 pesos in her bag was lost. This money was put inside the packet of her slacks pants inside here bag. Since he pass through X-ray machine, and we believe that money inside of her bag was seen in the machine, but why no one inform him that, it much safer to put that money in her hand carry bag. Despite the people assigned was urging her to baggage her things. My mother never thought that her money will be lost since this is her first time to travel riding plane. This only means, they know there is money inside that back that's why they tell to baggage that bag since my mother hand carry it. And how could the people arranging the baggage in the plane if no one informs him from the x-ray machine that there is money inside that bag. Di ba? Ibig sabihin my irregularities sa Airport plang. We sacrifice a lot to have that money. We spent two years to raise a cow just to have that. Kung sino man ang kumuha nun, mamatay ka rin. sana malaking halaga pa ang mawala sau. To Philippine Airlines, I'm asking you to investigate these happenings.
RICKYAPACER, ricky ifeel sorry about your case.These had happenned to me before in the old airport. My mother was robbed by some bastard crook that i wanted to buthcher them instead of shooting. Although my reply to your message is way too late,i would say that you have a very good lesson to advice your family.You cannot even count on someone who wears a uniform,you just never knew they're maybe part of them,plus don't even trust almost anyone anymore.I still could not see any sophisticaton with regards to the security issues of the airport in the Philippines, i mean i could carry me a big load of bomb and no one can even detect.I think you are one of the victims of the "so called -inside job". Those thieves,robbers and snatchers need to be punished like they do in saudi or worst.Nowadays the law of a bullet is more respected in the place or country like the Philippines.
