Man caught smoking on an airplane

SMOKING ON AN AIRPLANE – A man in his mid-20s was caught smoking while on a flight from Manila bound to Iloilo.

In a now-viral Facebook post, Travelosyo shared one of the most dramatic flights he’d ever been on, 5J 449 from Manila bound to Iloilo.

According to him, he was sleeping when he heard an emergency alarm. He added that it was something he had never heard in all his years of flying. Then, the captain started speaking: “To someone inside the front lavatory you’re not allowed to smoke,you’re jeopardizing the safety of this flight. You will be sent to the police once we landed at Iloilo Airport.”

Then, the cabin crew escorted the man who smoked back to his seat and talked to him. And when they landed, they were held back. Eventually, security and police arrived. Later, he was escorted out.

Travelosyo noted that the one who was caught smoking was around a mid-20s guy. Control your urge to smoke or vape on the plane.

“So the one who did it was around mid 20s na guy. Pigilan nyo yung pangangati nyo mag smoke or mag vape sa plane. If im not mistaken its up P20,000 penalty plus possibility of lifetime banned sa airline,” Travelosyo noted as a reminder to the public.

Currently, the Facebook post has garnered over 21,000 reactions. Here’s the Facebook post of Travelosyo:

Meanwhile, in the Philippines, smoking on an airplane is a serious offense that can result in significant penalties. The specific penalty for smoking on an airplane in the Philippines typically includes a fine of up to PHP 20,000. Additionally, offenders may face the possibility of a lifetime ban from the airline. These penalties are enforced to ensure the safety and well-being of all passengers and crew on board.
