The plane with flight number PK-301, run by the PIA airlines, was travelling from Islamabad to Karachi when a sudden technical fault was discovered in the airplane’s engine, making the passengers extremely anxious.

A team of engineers checked and fixed the issue. However, when the flight tried to take off again, loud noise from one of the engines was heard, which again scared the passengers and they refused to fly.


In the end, the flight — PK-301 — took off with only six passengers, with the luggage all left behind in Islamabad.


According to an official statement by the airline spokesman Abdullah Khan said the remaining passengers will be accommodated on the 7pm PK-309 flight.
