Yet another episode of suffocating passengers reported in PIA flight
KARACHI - Yet another episode of suffocating the passengers has been reported at Pakistan International Airline’s (PIA) flight on Saturday.
Passengers had complained that they faced suffocation when the national flag-carrier kept the doors shut on an Islamabad-bound flight that was delayed for over an hour.
Flight PK-300 which was going from Karachi to Islamabad shut its doors after the passengers had boarded. The take-off, however, was delayed owing to a technical glitch.
Upon asking to open the doors for the time being, the cabin crew refused straightforwardly. The passengers reiterated that faced difficulty while breathing.
One of the passengers claimed that when they tried to record the scenario, their cell phones were taken away by the cabin crew.
In another case, a video of a mother pleading the national airline’s crew to open doors of the plane as her baby had allegedly fallen unconscious due to faulty air conditioning went viral on social media in August last year.
