Yes.....thence followed a thorough investigation:
"the pilot went out of the cockpit and explained that the problem was caused by the plane’s wiper”

Only reason I can think is that the gravity extension was used to lower the gear.

Glad everyone is OK, but it could raise old questions about their maintenance again, if anything is found to have been wrong with the plane.

Some of their A320s are fairly new, some of them have frayed seatbelts, torn seat covers etc and look on the inside to be well past their best-by date. That doesn't mean they are no well maintained, but it doesn't look good.

Then again, it is probably like that to make the passengers who are more familiar with jeepney travel feel at home.

Sources within the airline claim that the runway lights failed briefly while the aircraft was on short final causing the runway excursion.
If true, were these pilots not told about a little something called "Go around" ?

Another way of saying grass!

Col Leopoldo Galon, chief of the military's 5th Civil Relations Group, said flight 5J 971 from Manila overran the runway and hit its uncemented portion at around 7:10 pm.

A CAA inspector should keep his opinions to himself until facts become clear....

Remember this is the Philippines..
Everybody who is anybody rushes into print regardless of the consequences
Sady Cebu Pacific also entered the arena initially denying anything untoward happened .... Hence no need for any emergency evacuation.....

Philippines probe

Philippine aviation authorities said on Tuesday they were investigating Cebu Pacific pilots and crew who left passengers waiting some 15 minutes before deploying emergency slides on a plane that overshot the runway and landed on its nose.

None of the 165 passengers was injured, but several complained about the slow response. The rough landing in stormy weather on Sunday evening forced the closure of the Davao International Airport in the southern Philippines while the Airbus A320-200 remained stuck on the runway.

Civil Aviation Authority Deputy Director General John Andrews said that the pilots’ error probably caused the accident.

Everyone panicked. Women and children were screaming

“Everyone panicked. Women and children were screaming,” Percival Jacones told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. He said that the cabin crew appeared stunned and that it took 15 minutes before the captain came out of the cockpit to address the passengers.

Davao Mayor Sara Duterte said airport management was late in alerting city emergency services about the landing and denied quick access to the passengers. She said that an airport security guard phoned Emergency 911 to report the accident. The aviation authority said that all angles will be investigated.

Cebu Pacific President Lance Gokongwei apologised but also defended the crew’s action.

“In this situation we may not have handled all issues perfectly, but we can learn from this experience,” Gokongwei told ABS-CBN TV.

The plane had departed Manila. Cebu Pacific is the Philippines’ largest low-cost carrier. It operates 33 Airbus planes and eight ATRs, and also flies on regional routes.

A similar accident occurred in 2011, when a Cebu Pacific plane overshot the runway in Puerto Princesa in western Palawan province. There were no casualties.

The Ateneo de Davao University, which had members aboard Sunday’s flight, published an open letter saying it will boycott the airline to protest “the insensitivity and ineptness” of the crew.

“Your personnel lack training for an emergency situation. They froze. They did not know what do to. They must be able to put the welfare of the passengers before their own,” said university President Joel Tabora.

Gokongwei also stresed that the Davao incident did not involve "an emergency situation."

"There was no emergency situation...It was a precautionary disembarkation," he said, addressing a question on the length of time it took to deplane the passengers.

Affected passengers took to social media to complain about how it took Cebu Pacific flght crew all but 30 minutes to deplane them. This also prompted the president of Ateneo de Davao to write a scathing letter about how Cebu Pacific treated the passengers.

Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said the way the ground crew handled the passengers is "something we can improve on."

She and Gokongwei, however, said the cabin crew followed protocol in handling the passengers while still they were still inside the plane.

In explaining why the airline staff took about 20 to 30 minutes to deplane the passengers, she said the cabin crew did not see imminent danger after they landed, checked the passengers if they have sharp objects with them, and were the last to deplane after making sure no one was left behind.

Gokongwei highlighted that no one was injured from the incident. - with reports from Karlos Manlupig/Rappler.com
