LAHORE: A female passenger, travelling from Lahore to France through PIA, fell asleep during the flight and woke up when the plane landed back in Lahore after completing its journey, Express News reported on Wednesday.

The plane reached Paris from Lahore, then went to Italy and returned back to Lahore, but no one woke the woman up.

On her return, the woman’s daughter and relatives started protesting and said that it was all PIA’s fault. The woman was also stopped at the Lahore airport on expiration of her visa.

Spokesperson PIA said that a committee has been formed to inquire into the incident, and added that the woman will be sent back without any additional charges.

I am not a die hard fan of PIA but i read the comments on this issue probably all the people blaming PIA have never travelled on this flight. its practically impossible to keep a track of who is travelling where on such flights with transit passangers always on board the aircraft is never supposed to be empty.Cabin staff is changed at Paris with passangers on board. again there are passengers sitting on the aircraft wen they land at Milan. All those who are blaming PIA must get facts straaight first. its easy to blame some one else especially an organization like PIA with a very shallow reputation.
