LAHORE: A Pakistan International Airline’s Rahim Yar Khan-bound flight from Abu Dhabi landed at Lahore on Saturday reportedly due to bad weather, the airline staffers have offered passengers to facilitate them by taking them to their desired destination from a bus.
However, the passengers have turned down the PIA’s offer and refused to leave the plane.
According to reports, reacting over the passengers’ refusal, the airline staffers switched off plane’s air conditioning system, resulting in suffocation in the plane, in which minors are also present.
Reportedly, the pilot has refused to take the plane to Rahim Yar Khan because of the low visibility due to smog.
The approximate time distance from Lahore to Rahim Yar Khan is eight-to-nine hours on drive.
The passengers maintain that at least the national airline should drop them at Multan Airport, in view of its proximity with Rahim Yar Khan.
