Islamabad: The pilot refused to fly the plane after working hours. The incident took place last Sunday. A plane of Pakistan International Airlines, Pakistan’s national carrier, was flying from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. But due to bad weather, the plane had to land at Dammam Airport in Arabia.

Later, when the weather was right, the pilot refused to take off. The pilot replied that his shift time was over so he could no longer work. Passengers, outraged by the pilot’s behavior, refused to get off the plane and began protesting.

Dammam airport officials later called security officials to resolve the issue. Officials arrived and arranged accommodation at the hotel for the passengers. Passengers ended their protest after being assured that all passengers would rest and arrive at the Islamabad airport by 11pm.

The PIA, meanwhile, said the pilot’s rest after a flight was essential to the safety of the aircraft and its passengers. The incident comes less than two months after Pakistan Airlines expanded its operations.
