Members of the Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA) reported to work on September 27 but refused to do their jobs, such as refuelling airplanes, moving cargo and manning check-in counters, causing thousands of passengers to be stranded at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2.

PALEA was protesting the Airline’s plan to outsource 2,600 jobs in the reservations, in-flight catering and airport services.
