I've been hearing so many bad things about Zest Air regarding their services but experiencing it was worst than i thought.
My friends purchased their tickets ahead going to Marinduque (MRQ) which was being monopolized by Zest Air.
They suppose to fly out of Manila about 730am and arrive at 820am in Marinduque. Since I'm a budget traveler i don't think paying more than 5,000 php in a domestic flight will be worth it so i decided to take a bus and roro instead.
Having this itinerary from my friends, i planned my own travel time . I was already in Marinduque at 4am on a Friday. Waiting for my friends to arrive at 820am. Waiting for 4 hours was okay with me since i decided to take the cheaper route but waiting more than what i expected, really pissed me off.
Marinduque Airport was one of the small airports I've visited but the guards here are accommodating. Talking to the guard made me realized that i'm gonna wait for more than 6 hours since Zest Air is MOST OF THE TIME DELAYED!!!! It is expected that the plane will arrive at around 10am.
Yes, 10AM.... are you kidding me???!!!! A DELAY of 30 mins to 1 hour in a flight, might be reasonable but come on more than 2 hours... really!!???!!! This people should be hitting the beach already.....
My friends on that flight was also mad, disappointed and bored but they can't do anything about it. First update, Zest Air plane heading to Marinduque was on some technical maintenance and then second update was due to runway traffic.
I may not be included on that flight but it wasted so much of my time. I could visited Torrijos while waiting for my friends, if i only knew...
I just hope Zest Air will have a better system for their flight schedules. Until now I'm still decided NOT TO TAKE A ZEST AIR FLIGHT.. EVER!!!
It's just unfortunate if your heading Bellarocca and want to have a less travel time, you do not have a choice but fly with Zest Air. I just hope and pray that one day Cebu pacific and Airphil will also have this route added to their destinations.
