The stranded passengers wave a final goodbye at HK Airport

About 10 Filipinos who were stranded at the airport on Feb 2 when their Philippine Airlines flight to Manila was canceled, managed to finally fly home on Saturday, Feb. 6.

Seven of the passengers sought help from the Mission for Migrant Workers as soon as they heard about the flight cancellation as they no longer had homes to go back to while waiting for the next plane that could take them home.

PAL staff at the airport had reportedly said their original flight had to be canceled on orders from the Manila government.


When contacted by the assistance to nationals section of the Consulate, PAL’s country head reportedly said they informed all passengers about the cancellation days before through an email blast.
