A post by a social media user made rounds on X, sharing a short clip of the huge rat he spotted at Gate 2, international departures in NAIA Terminal 3 at around 1 a.m. on March 1.

“Hello NAIA, una surot, ngayon naman may daga sa international departure? Yung totoo?!?!” he wrote. 

The post garnered various reactions from social media users.

A few days ago, the airport also made headlines after various social media users shared their unfortunate experiences of being bitten by bed bugs in Terminals 2 and 3.
