Philippines – an unsafe country to fly to??

Boracay Sunset

In April this year the EU released a list of airlines that were banned from flying into EU airspace.  ALL Philippines were on this list.  So, what is it like to fly on an unsafe airline?  In the case of Cebu Pacific, which we used to fly to Boracay for a friends wedding, not so bad actually.  As far as I heard, everyone from the wedding made it in and out of the country safely.  We have flown on much worse airlines.  Aeroflot and Kenya Airways to name two (which happen to not be on the official list).  We also had an interesting experience on Air Botswana but in all cases we got to our destination just fine.

View the full list of “unsafe” airlines here.

The safety demonstration on our flight didn’t happen like this video below but any airline that tries something like this is ok by me.  I guess a little safety demo flare doesn’t give them bonus points from the EU.

Any place that can deliver sunsets like the picture above is worth a little risk… isn’t it ;)
