With the advent of NAIA being named as the worst airport in the world and with the long over-due plans of improving it, the government neither the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) should not aim for the-now-hideous NAIA to become the best airport in the world. With the constant improvements in their respective airports done by richer countries, NAIA will never become the best airport in the world. But instead, MIAA should aim for NAIA to be the most honest and most caring airport in the world. This goal I guess is more feasible.
Present people working in NAIA seem to have imbibed the distorted culture of corruption, thievery and extortion. Sorry if I maybe too harsh but that is the image they project. And that is how I and a lot of travelers perceive them to be. Not all workers in NAIA, if I may say, are like these but those crooked individuals seem to have effectively impinged everyone.
Because if all people working in NAIA will simply be caring and be honest, everything else will follow like: (i) the sky rocketing 8.5 billion pesos annual collection from terminal fees will be used on where it is supposed to be used, i.e. facilities upgrade and improvement; (3) it will encourage reputable restaurants and boutiques to operate business in the airport; and (iii) a feeling of a more welcomed and more secured 10.5 million passengers that passed through NAIA every year.
I may want NAIA to be grand, luxurious and elegant but for now all I need NAIA to be is simply be caring and be honest.
Sin verguenza mahabaging langit! Umayos ka.
