Two good news para sa atin na mahihilig magtravel.
1) Mga airline, obligadong pakainin ang mga pasahero kapag nadelay ang flight ng 2hrs+
May bagong regulasyon ang Civil Aeronautics Board o CAB para madagdagan ang benepisyo ng mga pasaherong hindi makasakay ng eroplano dahil sa overbooking at pagka-delay o pagkansela ng flight.
Kapag nacancel libre yung food and accomodation. May cash kapag nadelayed.
2) PH airlines' "non-refundable and non-rebookable" conditions for domestic flights will no longer apply starting June 15

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) "will implement its suspension orders on overbooking practices and the non-refundable and non-rebookable conditions on domestic flights starting June 15."
The report noted: "CAB Resolution 29 (BM3-05-11-2012) suspends the non-refundable and non-rebookable conditions of low-cost fares for domestic flights. Even if the passenger does not show up for the flight, the passengerís fare will not be forfeited and will be considered as having voluntarily cancelled his flight, and is entitled to rebook or to a refund."
