Airlines may impose fees on late passengers

MANILA, Philippines - The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) said local and foreign airlines are allowed to adopt measures to address higher administrative costs brought about by passengers that come in late for their flights.

In  principle I agree with this.

But when I last flew from Cebu to Manila on PAL, I arrived 90 mins before the flight, the check in queues were horrendous with only 3 check in desks trying to check in an entire Jumbo of people and I reached the front of the queue only 15 mins before departure, AND there was still a long queue behind me.

So I hope they will measure it from the queue itself and not the time of check-in which can be a long time later.
