    3. If it's too big, it has to be checked in. Wheelchair nga chinecheck-in. Stop trying to get any special treatments. Policy is a policy. Im glad they didn't bend the rules for you, even if your sister.

    7. We often travel to different countries as a string quartet (manageable) and sometimes an orchestra (headache!). We buy tickets for the large instruments. Usually it gets strapped into its own seat (expensive). Sometimes it gets into a special compartment within the cabin (cheaper fee), overhead’s too small for some instruments. Made arrangements with the airline ahead of time, during booking. No problem naman either PAL, or many other airlines.

      Delete
    8. Usually, if you want to carry cello as a carry on luggage, you need to purchase a seat for it.

  3. ano daw? eh bakit yong ukelele pwede? eh pwede din namang ipanghampas ng ulo yon if in case may mag away.

    1. Kulang po sa space. Ang ukulele po maliit lang. Ang gitara kahit gano kagaan mahaba. Tsaka hindi ka din naman papayag na patingan ng bag ang gitara mo kahit nasa case pa.

      Delete
    2. Sis binasa mo ba ung reply o d ka maka intindi? Ung overhead space nila maliit, di kasya ang guitars or piano or what not. Ukulele is allowed since maliit sya and can probably fit inside overhead space

      Delete
    3. THEY NEED TO BUY A SEAT FOR THEIR INSTRUMENTS IF IT'S TOO BIG. THEY CALL IT EXTRA SEAT OR CABIN BAGGAGE. DON'T KNOW WHY THEY ARE NOT AWARE IF THEY ARE FREQUENT TRAVELERS?

    4. 1:47 yaan mo na si 1:10. Di pa nakakasakay ng eroplano or kahit naggoogle muna bago magcomment. Mamaru kasi.

    6. Anon 1:47 kasya naman pero ang point dun sasakupin buong overhead. Nakasakay ka na ba ng eroplano? Pano naman ibang may handcarry luggage wala sila paglagyan nun di ba.

      Delete
    7. 1:47 at 3:50 Sinabi din ng PAL na for safety purposes. Maliban sa size na pinag lalaban niyo, eh para din sa safety ng pasahero since pag nagka gulo pwede ihampas ung instrument sa kahit na sino dun

      Delete
    8. Mga guitars baka pag dala mo sa loob ng plane makatama ka ng iba pang pasahero.

    2. Musical instruments are very expensive. I mean VERY expensive. Some are even priceless. Airlines employees are known for mishandling and breaking these instruments and most of them doesn't pay the whole value when broken or lost. That's why a lot top international airlines allow hand carry to put in a special bin of musical instruments.

      Delete
    3. @1:19, well, when he pointed out himself being a musician and mentioned his sister being an endorser and again himself as the one who made their inflight intro, he isn't just mere asking for clarification.

      Delete
    4. Then if its that expensive.. buy a seat for your instrument.. maka expensive ka but cant afford to buy space

      Delete
    5. Anon 1:24 Then he should pay for the extra cabin fee. If you can afford these VERY expensive instruments then you can certainly afford the fee. Theres a set space for equally allocates for all passengers. If you require additional space, which he does, then pay up.

      Delete
    6. There is a violin priced at 1 million dollars. If the ground personnel mishandled a valued instrument, will they pay?

      Delete
    7. 1:24 who cares? Mag aadjust lahat para sa instruments na napaka mahal?

      Delete
    8. dear, napakamahal ng musical instruments especially violins. tapos hagis hagis lang ng airline personnel? minsan pa nga 10 taon pinagipunan ng musician ang instrumento nya tapos pagsakay ng eroplano, sira! paano naman naging entitled if he only emphasized na napakahalaga ng instrumento sa musikerong gaya nya. madami na syang nadalang karangalan sa bansa, kalabisan ba ang magtanong ng maayos?

      Delete
    9. Entitlement talaga. May magclarify bang nangampanyang wag sumakay ng PAL? First time ni Salonga sumakay ng eroplano at need pakasayahin ang piano?

      Delete
    10. Uhm 1:24 pwede mo naman pag check in sabihin na fragile para mamarkahan. Di ko alam kung may extra payment.

      Delete
    11. 1:24 E di, i-fedex nya, and and put "fragile" on it and have it insured. Theres no such thing as a special bin.

      Delete
    12. YES to that 1:24! I've seen how they pile the baggage for boarding the plane juskoooo talagang wish mo walang fragile items na di nakasecure doon.

      Delete
    13. 1:24 Then they should pay for the cabin overhead fees like what PAL. Kung mahal yung gamit mo for sure you can afford to pay additional for that very expensive musical item. Its like why buy a STRADIVARIUS if you can’t afford TOPNOTCH insurance

      Delete
    14. Kung kaya pala ng expensive things. Why not rent a plane or buy a hella plane

      Delete
    15. You guys are so naive if you think by putiing "fragile", they actually treat it as babasagin. Simple google will show you tons of airline complaints about missing baggages and broken "fragile" items.

      Delete
    16. 9:37 Simpleng skincare items ko nga na binili sa korea na delivered by fedex, basag yung lid nung nakarating sakin eh tadtad na nga ng fragile sticker yung kahon. At mali ka kasi may special bin ang airlines para sa musical instruments. I've seen people hand instruments, carseats at hand carry na medical equipments sa stewardess pagsakay sa eroplano para ilagay sa separate storage bins/room.

      Delete
    17. Im right now travelling,walang special treatment or special bin.At lalong strict dito sa ibang bansa pagdating sa luggage size.You will hand the big items to the person on the counter.Checked in lahat yan.Walang nagdala ng malalaking bagay.Magkamali ka lang dito sa international airline,ipapa iwan mga luggage mo or you will pay extra.

      Delete
    18. Hindi naman entitled yung nag ask lag ng clarification. He shared the complaint to ask kung ano yung reason talaga. He was not the complainant. Plus he mentioned frequent flyer sila ng PAL meaning they love PAL and sana magsabi ng matinong dahilan.

    19. pinagiipunan ng karamihan sa mga musikero yan para makagawa ng magandang musika na papakinggan nio sa gabi o sa panahon na mag-isa kayo sa sasakyan at nakikinig ng radio. hindi porke't may mamahaling violin eh mayaman na. karamihan dyan, gusto lang maganda ang kalidad ng musika. sana lang ung mga fragile na gamit, wag naman iitsa itsa lang kasi pinagpapaguran yan at pinagiipunan. ang nanay at tatay ko, pinagaral kami sa pamamagitan ng pagiging musikero. hindi kalakihan ang kita pero tulad nyo na ang kaligayahan eh kotse o sapatos, ang sa kanila eh violin at gitara. sana lang talaga, wag iitsa itsa ang mga musical instruments dahil kadalasan, bumubuhay yan ng ilang pamilya. salamat!

    3. The clarification is it's their policy.

  7. ang main reason is kulang sa overhead limited space. kung kasya naman sa carry-on luggage tulad ng sabi ni gerard, bakit hindi pa rin allowed?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kaysa nga pero baka the instrument can occupy the whole space. Meaning sa isang overhead share kayo ng katabi mo. Or Baka full flight sila. Kaya Hinde allowed ?

      Delete
    2. d ka maka intindi? Ung overhead space nila maliit, di kasya ang guitars or piano or what not. Ukulele is allowed since maliit sya and can probably fit inside overhead space. Besides for security purposes eh paano kung may nag amok na pasahero at binalibag ung instrument sa iba

      Delete
    3. Airlines like quantas, singapore and and british airways for example has special bin for instruments and other high value large hand carry. You will hand the instrument when you enter the plane. Phil air should do the same kasi marami talaga silang lost items.

      Delete
    4. PAL is too cheap to provide a special cabin for musical instruments and the like. Their planes are too crowded with maximum number of seats.

      Delete
    5. 1:48 wag pilosopo. Piano sa overhead space? Pencilcase lang?

      I think it's a valid point na kung kasya naman bakit di pa din inallow. Ang ukelele hindi pwede ibaliga kung may mag amok? May string pa nga yun na delikado din kung iisipin e

      Delete
    6. 2:12 those airlines you mentioned does not allow hand carry items that do not fit the luggage size.You will have to check the items in.Then they place a fragile sticker to your important luggage.

      Delete
    7. 11:29 Yes they do, i know coz i've done it before not with musical instrument though. It was artworks for me and the stewardess took it from me to put in a separate storage upon entering the plane and gave it back when we landed. Same thing happened with my baby stroller.

      Delete
    8. 12:40 I brought sports items with me,riding the airlines you mentioned and it was checked in.Not hand carry.

      Delete
    9. 1:15 baka kasi masyadong malaki ang sports items mo. I was allowed to hand carry the artwork that I purchased and the airline stowed it for me and gave it back paglapag ng eroplano. This is the reason why singapore airlines at quantas are my preferred airliner. Emirates and ANA (japan) are very good too. They are very accomodating. PAL has a lot of growing up to do.

      Delete
    10. 1:54 not malalaki pero mahaba ang sports items na dala ko.

    11. Kung may matamaan yung mga items na hawak mo since siksikan na while boarding the plane,who is responsible for that?

    3. PAL pa rin ako,at least you land safely,and not a SPIRIT.

  9. Baka sudden change ang policy nila kaya kaya nabigla yung mga musicians, especially since madaming int'l flights ang PAL. Maraming instruments na kahit na sa hard case pa, maliit pa sa hand carry luggage at mas magaan. Sayang na rin ang babayaran mong ipa check in kung pwede namang hand carry.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hindi pwede kasi ilalagay yan sa luggage compartment sa itaas,e may size naman dapat para maglagay din yung iba pang pasahero ng
    Kanikanilang luggage.Gusto mo,magbayad ka na lang ng extra,kasi parang pag lampas sa sukat ata ipapa check in sa iyo at hindi hand carry

    1. They dont allow it sa check in pag overbooked ang flight which is all the time kahit bayad pa yung seat.

    2. Allowed yan sa check in kasi ilang beses akong nakadala ng sports items at nilalagyan ng tatak,fragile.Mahaba din kasi yung ibang sports items na dala ko.Magbabayad ka lang sa counter.

      Delete
    3. Meron naman,magbayad talaga sa counter for that.Pero hindi madadala as hand carry lalo na kung mas mahaba or mabigat than the allowed size.Very strict dito sa US.

      Delete
    4. Kahit naman sa itaas mo yan ilagay,madadaganan pa rin yan ng ibang items doon ng ibang pasahero lalo na
      Pag umandar eroplano.

      Delete
  11. For sure naging policy yan kasi nagkaroon na ng bad incident before. We should also be mindful of other passengers.. And if its for the sake of all esp safety.. THEN JUST ABIDE SA RULES.

    Pero sana ma-handle with care din 'yung instruments if nilagay sa checkin. Minsan kasi bara bara mga tagahawak eh. Kuwawa din dahil mahal instruments.

    1. Baka gusto mong basahin ulit yung post. Hindi si Gerard ang nag-encourage sa mga tao to "never fly Philippine Airlines..." He was asking on behalf of his friend; thus, he linked his friend's initial post. Yung friend nya ang nagsabing "never fly..." Basahin kasi muna ng maigi bago magreact. And his names is Gerard NOT Gerald.

    1. Gerard did not post that, he quoted it from a musician friend named Allen Meek to ask for explanation.

      Delete
  14. Due to limited overhead space. Ukuleles are of the same size as just small luggages or even smaller. Its very understandable for PAL to not allow other type of musical instruments that's bigger and longer than a luggage like guitar for example. PAl also does not allow personal wheelchairs and strollers. And I believe that is fair for everyone. If you allow one passenger to bring something that would eat up a lot of space, might as well allow everyone. Though it is very unlikely for every passenger to bring a guitar on the same flight, it's just nice to have guidelines and policies on black and white.

    1. Correct.I am in the airport,travelling back to Manila.Ive seen passengers na may strollers at binawal sa counter,they need to show the items then it needs to be checked in,not hand carried.

  17. You have to pay extra seat for your music instrument, so they can tie it to it. That’s what I‘ve read when I checked if it’s okay for handcarry.

    1. Wrong. Their policy is no musical instrument at all, bigger than ukulele, in the cabin. Even if you can pay.

  18. If his instruments kaysa sa overhead Paano kung yung carry on mo can occupy one whole overhead? Paano naman yung katabi mo? Sympre in one row you share in one overhead right? Example sa isang row Tatlo kayo diba? Paano naman katabi mo? Second, baka that’s their new rules na bago na that need to follow sympre May mga sharp objects din mga instruments na yan that can use for terrorism while your on flight Hinde natin alam diba? Usually mga gamit nila nasa malaki hardcase talaga as in heavy duty na parang baul made of metal na makapal. Not unless Kung Sikat na Sikat ka kuha ka na Lang ng private plane doon pwede mo isakay ang instrument mo.

  20. Kahit sa ibang international airlines, hindi din allowed na i-hand carry ang musical instrument if it exceeds a certain allowable length. Pwede i-hand carry pero you have to pay for an extra seat.

  21. Ang bigat kaya ng gamit nila sige lets just say if share kayo ni passenger ng isang overhead Tapos bigla pag bukas mo nahulog si instrument sino liable Edi nag bukas... safety first! Violin at ukelele pwede naman ksi yun pwede mo yun hawak or itago
    Sa ilalim ng upuan.

    1. It's not him ata but his friend. Anyway, Kalimitan kasi ang mga airlines purposely yung overbooking lalo na pag international ang flight tapos ang unang seat na kinacancel is extra seats. Hindi guarantee ang extra seat. So what are they supposed to do then?

    2. He's only kinda passing on the message posted by Allen Meek

    1. Nahiya naman si Gerard sa 'yo. He might have INITIALLY gain popularity as he is naturally associated with his famous sister BUT Gerard is a well-known conductor and composer. He is a very successful musician in his own right. Hindi lang si Lea ang namamayagpag sa larangang ginagalawan nya. Lea is well known kasi nasa harap sya ng entablado, while Gerard works mostly behind the scenes. He graduated in Ateneo and pursued his education in Berkelee University sa Boston, Massachusetts where he graduated as summa cum laude. Worked with Sony Pictures and for a time, with Ryan Cayabyab, among others. Siguro sya nga yung sinasabi mong "typical musician" kasi mas kilala sya sa labas ng bansa natin dahil doon mas maraming nakaka-appreciate ng ginagawa nya. :p

    2. Haha napakabitter ng post

    3. Dont be stupid. To be a conductor you have to "know" music. You have to be a musician first and skilled in music theory. The level of discipline and precise skill that classical musicians and practitioners need, di yan typical. genius ka ha? patawa ka

      Delete
    4. Ha? Nag aral sya ng Music. Summa cum Laude pa. Music is his profession. That's how he makes money. So paano sya hindi naging professional musician? Give him credit dahil pinaghirapan nya naman yung mga naabot nya, not because of his sister.

      Delete
    5. HUUUY! Kilabutan ka diyan! Gerard Salonga has already made a name for himself as a musical arranger, conductor, and musical director. Hindi porket hindi sya frontliner or stage talent like Lea, 'nahatak' lang sya - he has his own kind of exceptional musical talent.

      Delete
    6. Not a professional musician? He's summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music. And an orchestral conductor there in Pinas and abroad. Arranges music, too. If that's typical musician to you, your standard must be off the charts. I don't think even his sister can help him be a TOYM awardee, his achievements are all his.

    1. Allen Meek plays trombone. Walang matulis sa trombone teh. Its about the size of a trumpet. Not big. I can understand why he's mad because it could break easily if checked in and for that size, PAL could've accomodated him easily. Its ridiculous to pay extra seat for a mere trombone.

  38. PAL broke my violin (a Stradivarius). They replied to me that it was my fault since it wasnt packed well. If you have high value objects, like your livelihood depends on it. Ask first before booking a flight. Better safe than sorry.

    1. Ganito kasi,if you are carrying oversized stuff,you need to declare it sa may desk pa lang so that they can accomodate your items,lets say stroller etc.May nakasulat din na fragile.Yin nga lang kailangan kang mag bayad ng extra.In my case,we bring fisging rods etc when we fly.

  39. I have a friend who is violinist. And experienced din nya for checked-in yung violin niya. pero no matter what happens, need talaga i hand-carry yung violin niya dahil it cost more than a Million. Minsan napapakiusapan naman yung FA. Okay sana kung maingat sila sa mga luggages eh.. Kahit nakalagay na fragile, minsan hindi maiiwasan ang pagkasira dahil hindi sila maingat.

  41. Mag bayad ka na lang ng extra seat!!! Napaka entitled mo naman at nanumbat ka pa. I’m sure iniisip ng PAL ang kapakanan ng lahat at hindi lang kayo na musicians. Haha!

    Pero sa totoo lang, napaka bait ng mga FA natin compared dito sa US. Sa atin maalaga at naka smile. Customer service talaga. Dito mabibilang mo lang ang mabait.

  42. Yung mga nagtatanggol dyan, pag music artist example kung nay concert, may logistics yan. Sa case niya, obviously hindi nya ni-declare bago flight niya na may dala siya. Nagtitipid si kuya. Yun lang yun.

  43. This is not an entitled post from him. The violin case is just as big as any other carry on, probably even smaller than most carry on wheelies. It's insensitive of PAL not to allow this knowing how fragile these instruments are.

    1. What he is saying is it clearly fits,what if ot fits the whole baggage compartment? What about the other passengers? Also if the container of his instrument is longer than the size specified by the airlines?

  45. Halatang halata sa mga posts ng karamihan na talagang hindi cultured ang karamihan sa mga Pinoy at puro kajejehan lang ang alam. Some musical instruments can cost hundreds of thousands up to millions, and they are fragile enough na pwedeng masira sa check in, knowing kung gano kabargas ang karamihan sa mga cargo operators dito sa atin. Kesyo entitled blah blah, waley di lang talaga kayo culture di niyo alam halaga ng mga yan. At di rin kayo masyado nagttravel kaya di niyo alam na sa ibang airlines, may special handling sila sa mga musical instruments in-flight na hindi na kailangang i check-in.

    1. You can pay for fragile items. They are marked and insured. But his post is mali talaga. It was explained na as per policy. He shouldve asked why right then and there demand explanation and information.

    4. Agree. Yung halatang-halata na nga na kulang sa comprehension at experience pero kung makapagbitaw ng comment eh parang kung sinong mga know it all.

    5. Mas kulang sa kautakan yang ipilit ninyo na isakay ang musical instrument ke ginto pa yan kung hindi allowed sa airlines,bumili kayo ng eroplano o kaya sumakay sila ng magic carpet.

      Delete
    6. Kung mayaman kayo,magbayad ng extra for the musical instrument. Sobrang kakuriputan na lang na mag reklamo sa
      Policy ng airline.
