Melissa Mendez offloaded from plane for causing ruckus

ACTRESS Melissa Mendez was offloaded from a flight on Friday for allegedly punching a co-passenger and a cabin crew.

In a video uploaded by model/athlete Andrew Wolf on Instagram, he said the incident happened while they were in the middle of a flight to Pagadian City.

Wolf said that a certain actress with initials M.M. threw a fit during the flight.

"I've seen some crazy things in my life. I regularly travel on planes for work, but this has got to be probably one of the most ridiculous things that I have experienced,” he said.

Wolf added: "A certain Filipina actress, past her prime may I add, decided to use our reserved seats on the plane. After being asked to move by flight attendants, the captain and even ground security she agreed to go to her seat (after 30 mins of cursing)."

"Kept claiming she was some sikat na star dati with initials M.M. She smelled like a beer brewery, you just knew something was gonna happen.... Anyway, half way to our destination to talk to our programmer in Mindanao, this "actress" decided to curse continually at my friend," he said.

Wolf posted a video of a woman, who was easily recognized by the netizens as Mendez.

He said the actress received warning from the flight attendants because of her unruly behavior. He then alleged that she punched his friend and cabin crew.

"She was given 2 warning cards by flight attendants, but didn't stop. She punched my friend and the flight attendants and had to be restrained," he said.

The captain then decided to return to Manila.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologize, but we have to go back to Manila due to one unruly passenger," the captain said.

Wolf said that the captain refused Mendez's appeal to re-join the trip.

"Captain: Hindi na, bababa ka na, hindi ka puwedeng sumakay, nasakatan mo pati flight stewardess ko."

Mendez, in an exclusive interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (, said she was originally given seat 2B but moved to 1A so that she could take photos of the clouds.

Melissa claimed she requested Wolf and his friend, who was assigned at seat 1A, if she could stay in the said chair while the plane was taking off.

"Sabi ko, ‘Puwede makisuyo, favor lang. Dito muna ako para lang pag-take off makuhanan ko ng picture yung clouds. Sabi niya (friend of Wolf), ‘Hindi puwede binayaran namin yang upuan na yan," the actress said.

She said Wolf’s friend threatened to hit her with his bag.

"Pag hindi ka umalis diyan, hahampasin ko yang mukha mo ng bag ko. May lalaki bang magsasalita nang ganun sa babae?" she asked.

Melissa said this was the time she lost her cool with Wolf's companion.

"Nagalit ako. Parang nakikiusap lang ako sa iyo? Bigla mo akong pagsasalitaan ng ganyan? Mataas ang boses ko. Mataas din ang boses niya," she said.

When the flight was already en route to Pagadian, Melissa said she approached the flight attendant if she could talk to Andrew and his friend to settle the matter.

"Tumayo ako at lumapit ako sa kanya. Sabi ko, 'bakit ka naman nagsasabi na hahampasin mo ang mukha ko ng bag mo'. Sabi sa akin, 'Lumayo ka sa akin, ang baho-baho ng hininga mo. Bad breath ka," she said, adding the guy's foul language prompted her to slap him.

"So yung galit ko, tapos sasabihan pa niya ako ng bad breath ko. Tapos sinabi pa ni Andrew na nakainom daw ako. Hindi naman ako umiinom. I don't drink at all," she said.

"Nasampal ko siya, inaamin ko yun. Right after that inawat na ako ng stewardess, so umupo na ako. Nagsalita yung piloto na babalik daw ng Maynila kasi may unruly passenger. Nagulat ako bakit isang passenger lang, dapat dalawa kami kasi yung altercation (is) between two people."

But she denied slapping a flight stewardess.

"Wala, wala. Sinungaling! Kahit magtanong pa kayo sa lahat ng pasahero doon. Wala akong sinaktan, wala akong inapakan, wala akong sinampal na flight attendant," she said.

In the end, Melissa apologized to her co-passengers who witnessed and were affected by the incident.

"Humihingi ako ng pasensiya, ng patawad kung naabala ko sila. Hindi ko sinasadya yun. Nasaktan lang ako, isa lang ako sa pasaherong nasaktan. Hindi ako nagpaka-star dahil hindi ko naman pini-feel na artista ako. At wala akong natapakan na tao mula noon hanggang ngayon. Wala," she said. (Sunnex)

    Yes, you have to pay extra. It is for those people who need more leg room because their legs wouldn't fit the regular seats. It's too cramped and uncomfortable because your legs are wide apart. If you have shorter legs I don't think it would be a problem. Or, people just want the comfort of more space.

    "question lang, mas mahal ba ang presyo ng reserved seat?

    about 150 to 250 per flight for these choice seats during booking.

    but free when you check in on the airport. LoL

    Ang sabi ni Melissa Mendez, kaya nya sinubukan makipag areglo kay Pamaran habang nasa ere dahil natakot siya don sa indirect threat na lagot siya pagdating sa Pagadian. Gawain ba ng natakot yung sampalin mo yung kinakatakutan mo?? Ang labo. Pag kinampihan to ng Garbiela ewan ko nalang. Ang isa pang di ko maintindihan, kung gusto lang magpapicture sa clouds, bakit di nalang galing sa pwesto nya sa 2nd row? Pareho lang naman ang makikita.
  • yup picture lang ng clouds, kelangan pa ng leg room.
    nagpa feeling importante lang yang babaeng yan!

    Only if they are not taken..... 4 flights this month and could not get a seat forward of row 6 on line or at the counter.

    what's with the front rows anyway
    the leg room on row 2 and the the farthest one are the same

    sa exit rows lang naman ang maluwag.

    so why are people going after the front rows? first to exit the plane?

    save the 200 bucks for inflight snacks nalang! lol
  • kel1guykel1guy Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    As you stated the exits have more room. Row one also has more room. I never sit there.... too many stuck on themselves types sitting there. Or... often politicians in row one!!!! Still beats that 13 hr MNL to LV sore bottom flight hands down no matter where you sit!

    I think PAL does not allow people from changing seats to the paid front row seats even if it's vacant. Pay first if you want it. They can, however, let you be seated at other seats if it's vacant. For CEBU pac, if there is a front seat vacant, they allow passengers who request to be seated at the front for free. They could have made some money and sell it instead. Idiots.

    I think what happened to Mendez is that she wanted the front row seat for her comfort and privilege and not about taking pictures of the clouds which is b.s. Why? She hasn't seen clouds before? She thinks being an actress gives her the entitlement and she can simply tell off the passenger who paid for the seat to exchange seats with her. The flight to destination is about an hour. The passenger stood for 30 mins because she just refuses to let go of the seat which only retards with a huge ego will do. Being so butthhurt with a bruised ego, she returned to her seat only to punch the passenger and also the stewardess who told her to return to her seat. lol

    I think she deserves being told by the passenger that he is going to hit her with the bag for being an idiot. lol

    Serves her right being offloaded. hahaha

    ako nga kuntento na ako sa window and yung malapit sa lakaran na seats, hindi ko masyadong feel yung sa gitna:lol:

    kung maaga ka lang magcheck in at gumamit ng check in kiosk sa airport makakakuha ka naman ng best available seats eh.
  • ylle45ylle45 Member PEx Icon 🎖️🎖️🎖️
    Melissa Mendez is a moron and stupid:lol:

    I usually sleep during the flight so it does not matter to me where I sit. Wag lang may katabing maingay or mataba.

    Feelingera lang talaga tong si MM.

    But cute ng daughter nya ha. :glee:

    Melissa Mendez to seek help of Gabriela
    Posted at 03/22/2015 6:10 PM

    Starlet Melissa Mendez is seeking the help of Women's party-list Gabriela to have her rights asserted following reports that she was offloaded from a Cebu Pacific flight bound for Pagadian City last Friday.

    In an interview with “The Buzz” that was aired on Sunday, Mendez was in tears as she revealed that she lost her job because of the incident.

    “Nawalan ako ng trabaho dahil sa kanya. I was supposed to leave ngayon. Biglang kinancel dahil mayaman sila, dahil influential family sila. Kaya nga humihingi ako ng tulong sa Gabriela para tulungan nila ako,” she said.

    Despite this, Mendez is optimistic that she will get over the humiliation, maintaining that she did nothing wrong.

    “I know I’ll be vindicated naman. Wala akong hawak na pwedeng ikamatay ng tao. Nasampal ko lang 'yung lalaking nag-mock sa akin, nag-humiliate sa akin,” she said.

    to be fair about it... the guy who said that is most prolly ghey. as only gheys make that kind of a threat against females.


    men would just let her be.. or even sit beside her or even not make a fuss out of it.

    You simply add a premium price of about P250 - P400, depending on the flight. Row-1 (1A yung pinag-awayan) is premium because it is nearest the door and it has slightly bigger leg space. But it is actually not very comfortable. You are not allowed to put any bag or anything infront of you, unless in all other rows. The main reason I guess it is sold as a premium is snob appeal -- everybody knows that you seat in a premium row so you are a few hundred richer than the masses.
  • BeerhandBopBeerhandBop I Am WHIP PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    only a [email protected]$$ would want the first row.
    you can't raise the arm rest up.

    people are not willing to pay for baggage, yet are willing to pay for front row seats. [email protected]$$3$
  • AirfoxAirfox B?nned by ?dmin PExer
    I always book for the first row, window seat. More leg room and more comfort. I can even raise my leg and rest on it on the divider. I don't have to contend with the seat in front of me reclining, making the space cramped. Going to the CR is a breeze. When going out of the plane, I don't have to squeeze myself to fall in line and take the baggage on top.

    Didn't know there are returds and sh!theaads seeing it as snobbish, dumba$$ery, stuck with themselves. It's like a huge problem for them seeing people all comfy on the front row. These kind of people hate it and they sulk all the way to their destination. Deal with it and go fock yourself.
  • for some reasons *** maintindihan cnu sa kanila nag sasabi ng totoo..c mm mukhang over acting at cleaning the mess done sila wolfe may chance ngang bullying kc the guy he with e may credibility na ganun
