The national airline of Pakistan is again in the news and again, not for the better ones. This time, PIA has done what can be expected from them depending upon their past behaviors and routines. What PIA has done now, is that it has left behind around 40 passengers on the airport of Medina without informing them about the departure.
According to the passengers who were left behind at the airport, they were not informed about the departure, and the plane left without even arranging any hotel for them. The airline did not even bother to inform them when the plan will be coming back to pick them up.
The passengers who were left in desperate conditions were found appealing to the PM of Pakistan Imran Khan, to look into this matter as the airline has shown no consideration regarding the situation.
The airline is yet to issue a response, but reports are that due to the small plane, there was not enough space on it and that is why the passengers were left behind. The plan was sure to come back to pick them up.
Earlier PM Imran Khan has directed the management of PIA to clear its name and work in the business plans to overcome on the loss it has faced and caused.
PIA is currently in the loss of approx. Rs 414.3 billion and deficit worth 500 million rupees on seven different routes and not even mentioning the domestic routes.
The finance minister has labeled PIA as the black hole which is engulfing all the funds it is receiving, and nothing is coming out if it.
