PPP moves NA over suspension of PIA's flight operation to US

Pakistan International Airlines forgot to carry two coffins meant to be flown from NY to Karachi, leaving the cash-strapped national carrier red-faced, according to a media report today.

Expressing regret over the incident, PIA Spokesperson Mashood Tajwar said that the mistake was made by the luggage handling agency's negligence at NY.

This incident took place on Sunday when the PIA staff preferred to carry its own belongings including crockery and napkins while completely ignoring over the dead bodies kept at the cargo office of the airport.

One of the two bodies had to be laid to rest in a New York City graveyard whereas the other is to be handed over to the mourning family in Karachi on November 1st via an arriving Etihad Airline flight.

Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has submitted a calling attention notice in National Assembly over the PIA's management decision to suspend its flight operation for the United States from January next year.

The PIA had already merged some United States flights due to weak passenger load to avoid losses, he added.

In the notice, PPP has stated that the 0.5 million Pakistanis will be directly affected by the suspension of the flight operations. However, the airliner used to face financial losses worth Rs. 2 billion while flying on this route.
