Humingi ng paumanhin ang pamunuan ng Cebu Pacific Air kay Vice President Leni Robredo hinggil sa akusasyon ng isang piloto laban sa kaniya.
Sa panibagong pahayag nitong Martes, Mayo 17, kinumpirma ni Captain Sam Avila, Vice President for Flight Operations, na walang basehan ang akusasyon ng sangkot na piloto kay Robredo.
“Since becoming aware of the social media post by one of our pilots in reference to a flight of Vice President Leni Robredo, I confirm that the pilot has made it clear to us that he had no basis for his claim and was purely speculative and careless on his part,” paliwanag ni Avila.
Kasabay nito ay ang paghingi ng paumanhin kay Robredo at sa publiko.
“While the pilot posted his commentary on his own accord, a post he has since removed, on behalf of Cebu Pacific, and as Head of our Pilot Group, I take command responsibility and apologize unreservedly to the Vice President and the general public for the actions of our pilot,” aniya.
“As professional aviators and free citizens of this country, we are free to express opinions, but we are also expected to carry out our roles and duties with utmost discernment and caution,” dagdag pa niya.
Sumasailalim ngayon sa disciplinary review ang sangkot na piloto.
“Cebu Pacific has very strict social media policies covering all of its employees and such a post should not have been published. This is recognized by the said pilot himself. He is currently under disciplinary review in accordance with our Company rules and standards.”
