There are 139 passengers stranded on Boracay Island, 164 on Palawan Island and 483 in Da Nang, association deputy director Huang Wen-ching (黃文卿) said. Far Eastern Air’s unreliability has been a known issue, but the CAA has failed in its duty to oversee the airline, Huang said. In response to the quality association’s threat to boycott the airline, Far Eastern Air said that it notified all travel agencies working with the company as soon as it made the announcement. However, Huang said that the CAA is provided with a list of every airline’s flight schedules on a monthly basis. The CAA must know Far Eastern Air has taken on more than it can handle, but has failed to tell the airline and the public, he said.
