Passenger Slapped Cabin Crew For Refusing to Lift Bag To Overhead Compartment
A passenger slapped a female flight crew for refusing to lift passengers bag to the compartment. Do flight attendant really need to lift passenger baggage is it part of their job?
Republic Act No. 9497, Chapter XI Sec. 81 clause 9 states that:
“Any person who, while on board an aircraft, interferes with a crewmember’s or flight attendant’s performance of their duties, assaults, intimidates, or threatens any crewmember or flight attendant, shall be subjected to imprisonment from one (1) year to three (3) years or a fine of not less than Fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000.00) but not exceeding Five hundred thousand pesos (Php500,000.00), or both, as determined by the court;”
Photos of Madel Ty went viral after she posted 3 photos showing the left side of her neck with bruises which she said she got from a passenger who slapped her.
Below is what Ty posted on her account:
“Im doing this for my fellow cabin crew. Sana maging lesson sa lahat and matutong ipaglaban ang nararapat. At para na din wala ng maulit pang ganitong case sa ibang crew. I’m sorry pero hanggang ngayon nattrauma pa din ata ako. I’m not really the one na kinagagalitan ng pax. But since im the lead cabin crew involved na din ako sa incident and kargo ko mga kasama ko.
I don’t want to elaborate what happened. Basta the bottom line, kaming mga cabin crew/flight steward our main priorities are your safety and not to carry or lift your bags. Ang kinasasama lang ng loob ko sa napakasimpleng bag na di ma stow ng maayos kailangan mo kaming sabihan na ‘your job is to assist passengers, kumbaga sa bus, mga konduktor kayo! Godda**it!’ And for the record, even konduktor hindi binubuhat bags ko to stow it. At walang masama sa trabaho namin at sa pagging konduktor. Nagttrabaho kami ng marangal. Pinalampas ko na mga sinabi mo. Nagapologize ako ng paulit ulit. Di na ko sumsagot at pumapatol. Hinahabaan ko na pasensya ko. Kasi iniintindi ko nalang yang galit mo. Ininsulto mo na nga yung trabaho namin na akala mo binili mo pati buong pagkatao namin. But this is too much. Di ako pinagaral ng magulang ko just for you to slapped me. In the end, hindi naman kami yung nagmumukang walang pinag-aralan at walang manners eh.
Well ayaw ko na pahabain pa to. Madami nakawitness sa nangyari. May Godbless you ma’am. See you in COURT!”
