Remark : My flightplan to go home was brutally changed because of the attitude of Philippines Airlines. When I arrived in Terminal 2 in Manila on Friday 3 January 2014 they refuse me for boarding, because of my ticket that I must go over Xiamen and so I have 2 stopplaces in China. And they say you can only have one stop in China, that’s Beijing ; the same like my arrivalticket. Because in China you not going in transfer, they give you a visa for 2 days staying. But when I did home a day later I spoke to someone I met when I arrive and he had no problem to stopover in 2 places in China. He was just lucky to go back on Saturday the 4 of January 2014 and then the problems of overbooking where not there.
Also terminal 2 was overcrowed at this time when many people going home after the end of the year. So maybe more the reason was the flights where overbooked, also my flight.
So I had to book again a direct flight from Manila to Beijing and because of the late arrival I had to stay one night in Beijing because I have my next flight on Sunday morning the 5 of January 2014. So I arrive one day later, but had the hotel to pay and the ticket Manila-Beijing. I had complain to Philippines Airlines , but not a result. It was a nasty story, and still I’m flying with this company, but I’m not at all happy with there policy.
