READ: Airport passengers offer their extra luggage weight to the soldiers carrying their equipments to Mindanao

The ‘Bayanihan spirit’ of the Filipinos is still alive!

Soldiers are considered as hero by the people because despite of their low salary and lack of equipments, they still determined to defend the country against the groups who wanted to destroy the peace and order in the Philippines especially in Mindanao island.

Because of that,some Filipinos voluntarily helped the soldiers who faced problems in random places like airports and a netizen shared an example of this.

Inday Rakel, one of the customers of AirAsia recounted in her review with the airline company how the people helped three soldiers with their problem about their excess baggage.

The soldiers who traveled from NAIA to Davao International Airport via AirAsia faced some problems before their flight because of their excess baggage. When they were informed about the problem, the three soldiers didn’t complained and stepped back and tried to fix their luggage.

But even hardly they tried, one of the soldiers still had a 7 kilos excess in his baggage.

Because of that, Inday Rakel asked one of the soldiers about the problem and she discovered that the two soldiers were going to Marawi and one was to Cotabato to perform their duty and defend the country from the armed groups.

Inday Rakel tried to talk to one of the supervisors of the airline company, but even before she talked to the officials of AirAsia, several passengers already volunteered to help the three soldiers by giving their extra luggage weight to them.

“With that, 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.” Inday Rakel said in her Facebook review.

“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. Even if they were so called “men in uniform”, they remained humble and followed simple airline rules. True heroes not just in war, but as an abiding citizens. Filipino citizens who deserve better at least for an extra few luggage weight.” She added.

The review of Inday has gone viral on the internet and as of writing, it already reached 33,000 positive reactions from the netizens.

“Dapat bigyan halaga ang mga sundalo. Dito sa US, kada flight ko , priority sila kaysa mga passenger sa business class or first class. Dapat ganyan din sa Pilipinas .” MariAnn Lacia remarked.

“Thank you soldiers for your service. Thanks to the passengers who helped with the excess baggage. Keep the Filipino bayanihan spirit alive!”

This is the whole story:

I was on queue for my AirAsia flight bound to Davao tonight (18-7-17) with flight no. Z2615. 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. The staff somehow, did her job efficiently and followed the airline’s protocol. So our 3 men without any complaints, stepped back and went to the side and sort their stuff out. But even if how hardly they tried, still there was a 7 kgs. excess in one of the soldiers’. Upon looking at their things, all we can see were their combat uniforms, which got me sooo curious and started to chat with them. 1 passenger suggested to have it cargoed but they cant do it as they have to travel straight to Cotabato and 2 of them are to head to Marawi. After learning where they are bound to, I felt like the need to talk to the Supervisor. I mean, these men are risking their lives for our security, our peace, our freedom… cant they be granted with lil bit of privilege? at least a free 7kgs luggage?

Before I went around to try to look for the Supervisor, kind hearted passengers started to offer their extra weight for our soldiers. With that, 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.

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. Even if they were so called “men in uniform”, they remained humble and followed simple airline rules. True heroes not just in war, but as an abiding citizens. Filipino citizens who deserve better at least for an extra few luggage weight.

Cheers to our heroes! Our soldiers!

May all our airlines give somehow a lil bit consideration esp. to them who sacrifice for our country.

God bless the Philippines!
