PIA Forgets 50 Passengers in Jeddah

Reports from Jeddah airport in Saudi Arabia have brought attention to a concerning incident involving a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight bound for Islamabad, which reportedly departed without around 50 scheduled passengers.

Stranded at the airport, these passengers find themselves facing difficulties and uncertainties as they await assistance. Seeking urgent intervention from higher authorities, they express frustration and disappointment over the distressing predicament they now find themselves in.

According to sources, the primary reason for the passengers being left behind was the limited capacity of the aircraft, resulting in insufficient space to accommodate all travelers. Despite efforts to facilitate their boarding, logistical constraints ultimately led to this regrettable outcome.
