The trouble with crashing into paradise

June 29th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Cross-posted in FilipinoVoices.com Zest Air seems to have a lot of trouble dealing with the airport at Caticlan. Last week, a Zest Airways Xian MA-60 (RP-C8892) with 54 passengers overshot the runway, in a repeat of a similar, more damaging overshoot earlier this year. Unlike the previous incident where 3 of the 25 passengers were […]

Pinoy social justice : Laws that "benefit" the less fortunate

May 16th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Cross-posted from Filipinovoices.com Maybe it’s just road rage from all the traffic that I’ve been going through lately, whether driving my (borrowed) car, riding a cab, or being a bus passenger myself, but I have always wondered: why the hell do we wonder why there’s so much traffic in EDSA, when an average of 40% […]

Through the efforts of blogger Kevin Ray Chua, the issue caught […]

You could lose stuff in your checked-in baggage

October 27th, 2008 · 11 Comments

Two weeks ago in our return trip from Davao via Cebu Pacific, my wife checked-in her backpack, along with the boxes of durian and mangosteen we purchased as pasalubong. Around half-an hour later she was called back to the check-in counter. Apparently her backpack ended up in the cart of Philippine Airlines, without the claim […]

Electric dreams of Filipino industrialization

October 25th, 2008 · No Comments

This article is cross-posted from FilipinoVoices.com While the racetrack-like Elliptical Road in Quezon City rumbles with noise, fumes, and traffic, a few silent automobiles make their own rounds in the Quezon Memorial Circle that the road borders. Humbly seating four persons max, the curious rides called G Cars (in a pun-loaded attribution to their inventor, […]

Asian Spirit becomes ZestAir: juicy new aircraft acquired!

October 14th, 2008 · 9 Comments

With juice magnate Alfredo Yao’s acquisition of local airline Asian Spirit, it was not entirely unexpected that he would change the branding of the carrier. Considering that Asian Spirit has been the butt of jokes (“fly as an Asian, land as a Spirit”) it is not surprising that Yao would rebrand the airline. Asian Spirit […]

Unsolicited advice for improving Cebu Pacific’s Sky Sales system

April 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Cross posted from .NET @ Kape ni LaTtEX One of the main points of criticism against my rather controversial, death-threat worthy posts regarding Cebu Pacific’s dismal service and the involvement of software development company Navitaire was that they found my posts too negativist and tried to bully me into suggested that I criticize more constructively.

Cebu Pacific’s failure isn’t in the software, it’s on the phone

April 22nd, 2008 · 31 Comments

In the ensuing comments in my previous post, Cebu Pacific’s monumental failure: A new online reservation system, several people questioned why I appeared to be singling out Navitaire and its online reservation system SkySales in the current Cebu Pacific brouhaha. I gave thought to this after reading Aileen’s post on how she lost money because […]

Cebu Pacific’s monumental failure: A new online reservation system

April 20th, 2008 · 55 Comments

UPDATE: Due to the shortcomings of this initial post, I wrote a follow-up post entitled Cebu Pacific’s failure isn’t in the software, it’s on the phone. Melynn, who operates I-NAV Travel & Tours, got pissed yesterday. She arrived at the Cebu Pacific ticketing office at 10 in the morning. By the time she was done, […]
