PIA orders probe into reports of 'rowdy' staff at Paris hotel
According to media reports, eight drunken staff members of the national carrier misbehaved with some passengers in a Paris hotel.
Following the incident, PIA spokesperson issued a statement which read, “Reference media queries regarding alleged misbehaviour of PIA staff in a Paris hotel, Chairman and CEO PIA have taken strict notice of the matter and ordered an inquiry into the incident.”
The statement added that severe action would be taken against those found guilty.
In May, PIA workers refused to provide protocol duty at Jeddah airport after a senior lawyer travelling back home misbehaved with an airline staff and hurled abuse at him, it was learnt on Friday.
A letter written by the national air carrier’s station manager in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah catalogued the incident in detail.
Muhammad Ali Khandwala, PIA’s station manager, also filed a complaint about an incident involving senior Supreme Court lawyer Akram Sheikh.
Sheikh allegedly misbehaved with one of the workers there and publicly hurled abuse at him. A copy of the letter was obtained by The Express Tribune. “As per practice, Khurram, the coordinator, was called from home and was deputed for the protocol of Akram Sheikh.
As usual, Khurram called Akram Sheikh and coordinated [with him] regarding his arrival time and reached the airport well before time to receive him,” the station manager recalled.
