    A Philippine Airlines (PAL) passenger gave birth to a healthy baby boy while on board PAL's B747 flight en route to San Francisco from Manila on Monday, September 19 (Sept. 20 Manila time).

    Aida Alamillo, a passenger of PAL PR flight 104, with seat number 83J, gave birth with the assistance of three nurses on board and several cabin crew led by Flight Steward Francis Lloyd Lobo. The passenger, who delivered pre-term at 35 weeks, was aided in doing deep-breathing and relaxation exercises, as a prelude to the birth of her child.

    The baby boy was described by Flight Purser Antonia Castañeda in her Flight Incident Report (FIR) as having "good skin color". She wrote that "baby started to breast feed", and gave a "loud cry" upon getting out of his mother's womb.

    The mother was described to have had "minimal pain". An ambulance and a team of paramedics were alerted prior to the plane's landing. Mother and child were assisted by the PAL Cabin Crew team, the PAL staff from San Francisco station and the medical team upon arrival in the city. Mother and child were brought to the Mills Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame.

    Nationality dispute after baby is born on flight to the U.S. from the Philippines in a cordoned off area of business class

    The nationality of a baby is being questioned after a Filipino woman gave birth to her son while she was flying from the Philippines to the U.S.
    Aida Alamillo, 41, went into labour while on Philippine Airlines Flight 104 from Manila on Tuesday over international waters.
    She started to complain of feeling nauseous and alerted the flight attendants that she believed she was going into early labour.

    Interesting... Her main intent on coming to the U.S. was to have her child born in Boston... I guess I will keep my "mouth shut".
