Default meeting friend at manila airport (part 2)

just thought i'd post an update on an earlier thread of the same title that i started a week back.

i arrived in manila last night at terminal 3. one CAN get inside this terminal to meet arriving friends and relatives. it is at terminals 1 and 2 that you must wait outside.

Hi and welcome to paradise... Thanks for the update on the airport. I never leave the country anymore but I know there is a federal law that prevents people from entering terminals unless flying out that day. So I'm really surprised to hear that one can get in. I wonder if it is a temporory or expermintal thing of some kind. If you learn more about it, please post an update. Hope you enjoy the time you have to spend here.

Thats exactly why I decided to stop leaving and just stay and live here. Separation was just too difficult each time. Came down to money or marriage. I chose to put our marriage first ...

saw my girlfriend off last night at the airport, and again, no problem getting inside with her. i saw her right up to immigration more or less, well, the point at which she shows boarding card and passport to guard, and immigration is just beyond that. but remember, i am talking about terminal 3 here, as she was flying subic pacific.

i will be leaving the country myself later today via terminal 1, so i'll post an update on that when i get home. but i am guessing it will be as i was told. no ticket, no entry.

I'm surrpised about entry even into terminal 3. Guess the rules'laws keep changing. Hope you're having a good ride home and looking forward to a post when you get there...

Default chalk and cheese

so i flew out of terminal 1 and for sure, it was a different ball game to the terminal 3 experience. i had to show my ticket to get in and outside were the hoards of people waiting to meet incomings, and plenty of teary-eyed people saying goodbye.

i flew back on china southern. that is an experience that would require another thread altogether. but still, i survived. i would recommend the terminal 3 experience any day, given a choice, but i am guessing that it isnt the main one used by most.

cold and raining here. gone is the sun and warmth.

but u gotta love blighty.

Hi Timbla,

Thanks for the info on the outbound international flights. I figured it was still the same as they need to meet international security minimums.
China Southern and China Airlines both have a safety record so bad that I would either take another carrier or stay home. Only other airline with a worse safety record is the Russian airline, Aeroflot.
Anyway, glad you got back okay and hope you'll write that other thread as a trip report when you have the time.
