The passenger, whose identity was not immediately known, prior to departure had expressed dissatisfaction at having to stow his baggage appropriately as requested by the crew, according to a statement.

Stowing baggage in an overhead bin or under the seat in front of the passenger is a safety requirement mandated by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

CEB clarified that its cabin crew’s primary duty is to ensure the safety and security of its passengers onboard flights and are ready to assist them.

It said it is providing full support to the assaulted cabin crew, who is considering filing charges against the passenger.

    Dapat lang idemanda irong mga pasahero na mga abusado sa airline crew. Pag sinabihan na ayusin ang kanilang bagahe dahil din naman sa kapakanan nila ay dapat sumunod. at sa crew rin sana kung magsalita sila pagbutihin at maayus ang pagkasabi kasi may mga pasahero na mainit ang ulo sa kahihintay sa delayed na flight na laging nangyayari sa mga local flight dagdag pa doon sa mga ugali ng mga personnel sa check in counter. Isa pa baka gutom na rin ang pasahero. Pero kahit ano pa man ang dahilan dapat lagging mahinahon ang bawat isa para iwas pagsisi.
