*KARACHI: The administration of Pakistan International Airline (PIA) has fired several flight attendants under Service Discipline Regulation 1985.*
As per details, the national flag carrier dismissed few flight attendants for acquiring the job on a fake educational degree while others were fired due to availing illegal leaves.
