Stranded OFWs in Dubai who are booked at Gulf Air ask PH gov’t to help them

-

A group of stranded Filipinos in Dubai has written an open letter for President Rodrigo Duterte as their flights via Gulf Air have been cancelled multiple times. 

“We take the flights from this airline because we can’t afford the ticket price from Emirates or Etihad,” the open letter sent to The Global Filipino Magazine read. 

Their flights are connecting flight–from Dubai to Bahrain and from Bahrain to Manila. 

As Bahrain to Manila shows no problem online, the flight from Dubai to Bahrain has. 

“The flight from Dubai to Bahrain gives us a hard time that affects the flights and lead to cancellation,” the letter added. 

The stranded OFWs in Dubai said that they understand the Philippine’s effort in repatriating some OFWs via Emirates. 

“Those flights, as we checked, are mostly Emirates airlines only. We already used the money for our food to buy flight tickets. Our flights were cancelled many times. If we rebook again to the month of July, we don’t know where we will stay while waiting for the day of our flight because we also don’t know when the landlord of our small rooms will kick us out,” the sender added.
