In this monsoon season in the Philippines, flights get delayed often, especially in the afternoon until the evening due to reasons like air traffic and weather turbulence.
Whatever reasons for these flight delays, passengers in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA 3) can find solace in the wealth of nurturing food available in the airport.
