Pakistan airline probes why 7 passengers were forced to stand during flight

Published: Updated:

Pakistan International Airlines said they will be investigating the incident when seven passengers were forced to stand on a flight despite having paid for their respective seats, Pakistan’s daily Tribune reported.

The airline had boarded 416 passengers on the overbooked flight that was going from Karachi to Madina last month in a serious breach of air safety regulations.

As a result, seven passengers were forced to stand throughout for the entirety of the four-hour flight, as the Boeing 777 only had seats for 409 people.

According to sources, staff members who were operating the flight shifted blame on each other for not being vigilant enough.
