Statement


Karachi; November 19, 2016

 

This is to inform the media that PIA's today's Toronto-Lahore flight PK-798 has been diverted to Manchester as its toilets got choked, due to something solid thrown by passengers. As all toilets are connected with a common drain line, rest of the toilets were also choked.

Keeping in view the convenience of passengers, the flight, has been diverted to Manchester where toilets would be serviced before the flight continues its onward journey. Inconvenience caused to passengers is regretted.

Chairman PIA has said the passengers need to strictly adhere to and carefully read the warning signs in the toilets.

The aircraft landed at Manchester airport 15:15 PST and after flushing of drain pipes, and refueling the plane took off for Lahore.
