Cebu Pacific: Off-loading of luggage in Caticlan-Manila flight done for safety
In a statement Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution, said some pieces of luggage on Flight 57 896 were off-loaded due to the airport’s weight limitation, which was implemented as a safety measure.
“The bags were loaded in the earliest available Kalibo-Manila flight on the same day and have been delivered to the owners. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused our guests and we hope for their understanding as their safety is our primary concern,” Iyog said in the statement.
There was no mention whether the off-loaded luggage included those belonging to the group of show-biz couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto.
A brawl between Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Ramon Tulfo and several men including Santiago erupted at the NAIA Terminal 3 in Manila on Sunday.
The brawl reportedly started after Santiago confronted Tulfo while he was taking pictures of Barretto complaining to a Cebu Pacific staff about their luggage that was off-loaded at the Caticlan airport.
