    Akhir kab tk yeh log humari Zindagiyan k sath khelain ge ???


    Dear friends due to the nature of my business I have to travel within the country quite frequently and unfortunately by PIA most of the times Today I was travelling from Karachi to Sukkur on flight PK 536, an ATR.
    During the flight, I could see on my left side some liquid dripping out of engine and near the wing. I immediately called the crew and told her what I saw, she called her senior and I shared the same thing with her and offered her to sit and see for herself, she showed her concern after witnessing it herself. She then informed the captain who came and sat on my seat and shook his head and left after thanking me. Later I observed that speed of the plane was increased which resulted in us reaching 15mins before the ETA. After we landed and got off the plane, the ground staff, who was informed from before brought the ladder for inspection. One of the crew member came and showed them from where the liquid had been dropping.
    I went to him and said, I quote" maray pass video hai aap chahain to khud daikh lien" and he unexpectedly burst out and said, I quote" kuon aap ko geo main video daini hai social media pe chalani hai? aap ne video kuon banai?" Instead of being concerned about the complaint he was more concerned about my video.

    I am now sharing this video in the hope that it will reach someone who is actually concerned about the safety of passengers instead of being merely concerned of defamation. These old dated ATRs are still in function regularly with no concern for human lives.

    You should email PIA your flight number / date of travel and plane information and inform them about this video. They do have a Website and contact center

    Sad to see PIA fall, it was the best airline in the world at one point. Safarish ruined it.

    Actually I consider the ATR's mid-aged. Deliveries started in '07. It's just that maintenance is not close to what it should be...

    In aviation business that's not considered any age.

    The poster is notorious for his god damn antics.

    Just a byproduct of corruption

    PIA is an absolute joke. Please fix your brand image and upgrade your service AND flights. Never am I travelling on PIA. Firstly they charge you an extortionate amount, the plane looks like it’s falling apart with its broken arm rests and outdated ugly seat fabrics, there’s no TV, WiFi, phone chargers, music players and the food is average. Ontop of that don’t get me wrong but most of the uneducated Pakistani community don’t even clean after themselves and treat property with little respect.

    Every overseas Pakistani says that but then when it comes to booking tickets, we all go for the cheapest flight. Yes, 2/3 of the time it's PIA. LOL :pakistan::p:

    Issay kehtay hain istaiqamat aur saabit qadmi. This is even worst than bollywood where people are made to believe in impossible stuff, here these guys want people to think what isnvisible to naked eyes is an illusion , bravo a new high for Pia. Dil tau chah rahay hai woh hashar karoon is airline aur iskay staff kay boothi bighar jaey inki.

    This is appalling, do they not even bother maintain these aging aircraft, what will it take? another tragedy, it is high time the media shines light on this issue so that the appropriate authority can take the appropriate measures to rectify this clear and present danger.Kudos
