We write in connection with the article written by Mr. Vito Barcelo and published in The Standard on Jan. 12, 2016, entitled “Schedule mix-up delays Cebu flight.”
We would like to respectfully clarify that there was no mix-up in the schedules of the assigned pilots and cabin crew of Cebu Pacific flight 5J 558 Cebu-Manila last Jan. 10, 2016. The crew members were also not on day-off as reported, as they were coming from flight 5J 571 Manila-Cebu.
5J 558 departed Cebu at 10:19 p.m. on Jan. 10, 2016, and arrived in Manila at 11:32 p.m. on the same day.
