PIA Pilot Takes a U-Turn to Drop Off a Grieving Passenger.


Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has been getting a lot of flak for various reasons but the latest incident is a head scratcher – a PIA pilot stopped a flight to off-load a grieving passenger.

A flight departing from Islamabad International Airport for Jeddah, PK-741, was about to take-off when the cockpit learned that a passenger’s mother has passed away and he was crying. The passenger was understandably inconsolable and due to this, the captain turned the plane around.
