A recent flight from Jeddah to Lahore ended up revealing too much truth to us. A passenger, a hero we should say, despite the warning signs against recording, photographed the grotesque condition in which the plane was. The passenger showed what seemed to be a plane that had not been cleaned in ages. The leather on the seats was dirty, dry glue, and the TV sets were remote-controlled.

PIA Passenger Exposed Unacceptable Uncleanliness And Maintenance

The photos were uploaded in the post uploaded recently on a Facebook group named, Voice of Customers. The photos showed worn-out seats, with stains all over them. A statement was shared that truly showed just how appalled the customer was along with the photos. 

The caption read, “Last night I traveled from Jeddah to Lahore in Pakistan International Airline pk760. Look at the condition of their seats. They are not ashamed to clean the plane. Such a dirty environment, such dirty seats. Can we question? Is this the level of Pakistanis? At the time of take-off and landing, there was a sound in the plane as if traveling in a rickshaw.”

It is quite disturbing to learn that these are the conditions of PIA. Despite being privatized. The utter shock and surprise are evident in the words of the unfortunate passenger who had traveled in such horrid conditions.

Unsettling Sounds During The Flight

Moreover, what’s even more unfortunate to learn is that the plane made horrid whirring sounds before taking off, and while landing. The customer shared it was as if riding in local public transport instead of a plane, with each ticket above a lakh.

We hope that the revelation is an awakening call for PIA and that they take some serious action against this problem. However, if they fail to, the airline will likely be forced to shut down.
