    Volcanic eruption or not, baggage in NAIA move like snails. That is the reality we have in the Philippines.

    But it's not fair to single us out. I have also experienced more than an hour waiting for my baggage during my vacation in UK last year (Edinburgh Airport).

    I will accept it as an outlier event given that there was so much disruption caused by the Taal volcano eruption. I must say most other times my bags have arrived quickly enough.
    That's not unusual waiting one hour for your baggage. I had to wait for one hour also and that was far before the Volcano (March 2019)!

    Possibly this was your case. Other scenario might have been a shift change!

    Good news ends there.

    It took ONE HOUR and FIVE MINUTES (65 f**g minutes) for my bag to come out on the carousel. They have a video monitor now of the baggage handlers unloading the trolleys and hurling bags on to the carousel. There was no action at all for around 15 minutes, then a couple of young guys stroll into view. 2 trolleys arrive and the guys take forever to undo the straps and start loading bags. I kid you not; the trolleys arrived very haphazardly and my bag (marked priority) came out after 65 minutes. I don't know what the problem was. I assume it was too few baggage handlers, trolleys etc for the backlog of flights after the volcano closed the airports.

    Luckily I got a Grab car within 5 minutes of emerging from T3 but then it took a further 115 minutes to get home to my condo.

    All up. Sydney to Manila = 7 hours 30 min. T3 to home = 3 hours.

    Thanks for the information. I regularly travel in it.

    I am advised by those in the industry, that some baggage handlers take great pleasure in unloading luggage marked "Priority" or something similar last. I always travel business and my luggage is generally tagged as priority, but there is certainly no difference from what I can see.

    One of the great frustrations of flying, but hey it's a first world problem in a third world country.

    Malate alternatives

    Got ready to get a Grab car and go to Abaca Spa in Malate. Figured I should check Manila Tonight for any specials. Guess what. That location is apparently closed due to building ownership problems. Any suggestions for alternatives in the same area? Anyone with experience at SOTA massage or Spa Hiroshima?

    I'm in Malate. Have not noticed anything different. A girl I was banging lives in Imus and they got ash and rocks on the street there, but it is a fair way from Manila.

    Same thing happens with the volcano near Bali. Flights status can change on an hourly basis. There is a level of risk involved even if it appears dormant. Lots of people get stuck there went it suddenly re-activates.

    According to my sister-in-law who lives just south of Manila International Airport, they are getting very light ash. They are just 50 kilometers north of the volcano. The airport has been closed and opened. I don't know the status right now.

    I know some girls I have met through PL. Some even live in Cavite. They are not complaining about the ash issues right now. Although it seems the masks in the local pharmacies have been sold out. I think you should rather see the warnings in the news and make your decision. If I were you I will postpone as I don't trust the emergency response and support may not be same as the first world country.
