A Filipino-American community leader has field an urgent appeal to the Los Angeles City Council to intervene in the decision of the LA Worlds Airport (LAWA) transferring the check-in gates of Philippine Airlines (PAL) from the main terminal of airport to the Midfield Satellite Concourse starting June15.
Fil- Am Community Leader Ethel Rubio issued the appeal to the LA City Council last June 2.
“As one of the Filipino-American community leaders, I implore the City Council to intervene in LAWA’s customer insensitive decision to move the PAL gates to the new concourse gates.”
He said the move would aggravate the mobility of the aging population, which makes up more than a third of PAL’s passengers.
“Philippine Airlines carries between 20 and 80 wheelchair-bound passengers per flight, and a transfer to a farther location would necessarily impair their mobility,” Rubio said.
“Please help us in reversing this decision on behalf of the Filipino- American elderly in your district,” Rubio added.
