KARACHI: A brawl took place between the PIA air crew members and Prime Minister’s son and MNA Ali Musa Gilani who was on board PIA flight PK305 from Lahore to Karachi.
Ali Musa insisted that his guard, who had an economy class ticket, would sit with him in the business class.
The matter could only be solved when the captain of the flight came to intervene and told Gilani that if he continued his demand that was against the rules, he (captain) would turn the flight back to Lahore.
The threat worked and Gilani decided to give up after which the flight continued and landed at Karachi airport.
