flying thru thai airways…

Thai Airways … Smooth as silk Photobucket

Lupet sa tagline, hahaha, smooth as silk nga ba?

April 16, 2008, we’re bound to manila from here (dubai) with my habibi (an Arabic word that literally means my beloved), it will be my first vacation being an ofw, hahaha, we chose thai airways because it’s cheaper than taking emirates and there’s no more available flight for that date kasi hinahabol namin ang graduation ng bro namin on the 18th, and so, after 1 year & 5 months, pinas here i come…

10:30pm ang boarding time, around 9pm tapos na kami checking-in, all luggages were of the required weight, nakahinga kami ng maluwag kasi madami kaming dala at maraming nagpadala, hahaha. We took pictures sa duty free, tingin-tingin lang, lakad lakad, attend to call of nature then we just stayed at the lobby taking calls and advising friends and family that everything went fine and we’re just waiting for our boarding. We boarded around 11pm, after makasakay ng lahat ng passengers, the captain announced that there will be a delay. Technical problem daw. nakatulog ako sa pagod at antok, ginising ako ni habibi dahil sinerve na ang meal around 12mn, so kumain ako sa super gutom, as in naubos, hahaha. Around 2am, the captain annouced that we have to disembark the plane, kasi di na talaga sya magagawa… whaaaaat??? after 4hours? dun lang napagtanto… pupungas-pungas pa ako ng tumayo, halos matumba sa paglakad kasi ang dami rin naming hand-carry, lintik yan, hahaha.

Nagkagulo ang mga sakay, lahat asar, lahat pagod, kawawa naman yung mga may dalang baby, pinag-stay lang kami sa airport lounge at pinaghintay for the developments. Sa sobrang antok ko, nakatulog ako sa lapag, hinayaan nalang ako matulog ni habibi kesa naman daw umiyak ako sa inis, hehehe. 4am, ang next flight daw namin ay via emirates na, 9am ang flight schedule, so we waited lang, tinuloy ko syempre ang tulog ko, walang kain, walang ligo, hahaha. Since, wala kaming seat no. unahan ang mga pasahero para makapag-check in, waaah, takbo rito, takbo roon, nakakatawang, nakakainis.

After namin makaupo, water and earphones were distributed to us. Nagrerelax na kami ng biglang may announcement na naman, the flight is not possible daw due to legalities, waah, after naming tumakbo, sumakay at maupo, hindi pa rin tuloy? (we assumed na baka di nagkasundo sa presyo between thai and emirates) screams and roars filled the plane, super frustrated na ang mga passengers, lahat galit na, lahat pagod. Ano ba magagawa namin? wala, so we disembarked the plane at once, ang lupet ng pangyayaring ito.

We were advised to go to a nearest hotel from the airport, all expenses paid, bakit ngayon lang nila napagtanto? we were checked in at avari hotel, 4star hotel din naman, ok na, we had our lunch there, shower and rest, our next flight was scheduled same time as yesteday… that was 24 hours delay, hindi na kami aabot for the graduation pero ang gusto nalang namin ay makauwi na…

At last, natuloy din ang flight, since it’s a connecting flight, we have stopover sa bangkok, at dun we were delayed by 6 hours, hahaha… napakasaya… i won’t tell anymore what happened sa bangkok, maybe sa next entries ko, ang haba na nito, hehehe…

Sa wakas, we reached pinas at 730pm of april 18, 2008, buti nalang nagtyaga ang kapatid ko sa pag-antay samin, wala kasi silang alam kung kelan kami darating kasi nga di na kami nakakontak sa kanila after matuloy ang flight namin, God is really good…

Thai airways? smooth as silk… nahhhh…. hard as rock, maybe😛

    what a flight! but you know what, dito sa alemanya, medyo mahal yang thai airways from germany to pinas — and yet we use it regularly kasi we love their service lalo pa since we are travelling with small kids. malas lang siguro yung eroplanong napadpad sa inyo, pero mabuti na yung di kayo lumipad kung may problem at delikado di ba? sa lufthansan naman ako naka experience ng ganyang tech problems at super delayed ang flight!
