Filipinos are very careful with their luggage since it carries not just their personal belongings but also some gifts and “pasalubongs” to their loved ones.
They give a huge trust to luggage handlers to take care of their luggage since they can’t carry it inside their plane.
That is why a lot of them were not happy upon watching a video of Cathay Pacific Airways luggage handlers carelessly flinging bags in Hong Kong.
The 37-second clip posted by a certain Marcela Fernanda Solis Walker shows two luggage handlers at the Hong Kong International Airport throwing checked bags from a conveyer belt into a cart. It can be seen that the men were throwing some fragile items that are being unloaded from the plane.
“This the way that our beloved luggage is treated!! I made the video this morning once my flight landed in #hongkongairport #cathaydragon #cathaypacific #cathaypacificairways #travelblogger #travelers #luggage the flight was CX5617 xiamen- hongkong departure 7:40am 27 of September .

The video already garnered 5.8 million views on Facebook since September 26.
The men in the video were already identified in an article by South China Morning Post as staffers at the Hong Kong Airport Services, which was owned by Cathay Pacific Airways.
The spokesperson of the Hong Kong Airport services has apologized for the video. He said they had told the matter with the supplier involved.
“We sincerely apologize to the passengers of our customer airlines in this particular incident,” the spokesperson said.
However, netizens reacted negatively upon watching the video.
“Omg kaya pala minsan ung malita ko may sira kasi ganun pala sila…kung hindi kayo masaya sa trabaho niyo dapat tumigil kayo,” Chinlee Tome said.
“Nd dapat ganyn ayusin nla ang mga trabaho nla kng masira dapat d n tinatanggap ang mga yn,” Julieta Baliton said.
“No wonder why u guys losing job! U guys don’t work well u know what’s gonna happens to who ever throwing those luggage’s. After that you guys getting upset and asking job. Poor your kids Christmas is coming no foods, gifts, new clothes with your family. Good for you guys,” Maria Data said.
“Mga balasubas lahat ang mga tao dyan sa airport lahat ata ng airpirt sa mundo…ganyan sila dito sa Pinas binubureke pa ang mga maleta,” Jose Abengona said.
“Will never understand all these peoples who has such bad attitudes toward their work , l’ve seen in my years working at the post office base, there some workers who did the same with all the parcels.. even if its has a fragile sticker on it…. they really don’t have respect for their job !!!!” Linda Ngan said.
