Passengers of Air Asia flight number Z2615 bound for Davao City on July 18 readily helped 3 soldiers with their excess luggage. The soldiers are going Cotabato and Marawi.
“Ahead of me were 3 humble soldiers. When their turn came to check their luggage in, the lads got an excess with their luggage weight. Your staff somehow, did her job efficiently and followed the airline’s protocol,” one of the passengers Inday Rakel said in an open letter to Air Asia posted on Facebook.
Inday Rakel further said that the soldiers stepped back without complaining and tried to arranged their luggage, however, still there was a 7 kilograms excess in one of the soldiers’ luggage.
“Upon looking at their things, all we can see were their combat uniforms, which got me sooo curious and started to chat with them,” Inday Rakel added.
She found out that 1 of the soldiers is going to Cotabato and 2 are to heading to Marawi.
Inday Rakel added she decided to appeal the case to the supervisor on duty. “Before I went around to try to look for the Supervisor, kind hearted passengers started to offer their extra weight for our soldiers,” she said.
“My heart melted. I was really captivated by the generosity and kindness these passengers shown. It was literally like Filipinos in Bayanihan. And when it was my turn, luckily enough with an extra 2kgs free, the soldier’s shoes filled my rucksack in,” she narrated.
“I am blessed to somehow help them with their luggage, and that was a little thank you for the bigger job they are doing. But, we are even blessed to have these men who are ready to die for our freedom, for our land,” she added.
