Now I know now why the get you here 3 hours before the flight. It's chaos at the check in trying to get group in Manila was a disaster. All check through to Truk but dotted about all over the place on both flights. Half the group walked through with liquids and were not stopped, the one guy that was stopped with a small bottle of suntan lotion was getting side long looks from the security staff as the knickers & bras started to appear it was his daughters bag well that's what he said :D
I have just found out that they don't sell batteries in airside in Manila to be honest they sell very little air side in Manila apart from just about just about every antibiotic to can name in the Pharmacy.
