The flight attendants tried to calm her, but she continued doing strange things during flight. The PIA crew members then called doctors, who injected her tranquilizer to make things under control.
Moreover, the senior PIA employee has lodged a complaint against the traffic staff of Manchester airport for issuing a boarding pass to the mentally challenged woman despite knowing the fact that she was not well.
Earlier in April, the passenger – a woman whose identity was not revealed by the airline – and her newborn baby were offloaded from the Lahore-bound flight PK-304 after she reportedly insisted on sitting in the Economy Plus section despite having an economy class ticket.
Sources informed ARY News that the woman was asked by the cabin crew and the captain to go back to her seat but the passenger reportedly misbehaved with the flight attendants.
Other passengers complained after the ruckus escalated, due to which the aircraft was returned to the jet bridge and the passenger along with her baby was offloaded.
The flight was delayed for over an hour due to the incident, causing inconvenience to over 150 other passengers aboard.
