    UK threatens to ban PIA flights over passport scandal

    LONDON: The British government has reportedly threatened to place a ban on all PIA flights over reports of tens of Afghan nationals illegally flying into the Kingdom on Pakistani passports.

    According to British officials, more than 50 Afghans bearing Pakistani passports landed in different UK cities from Karachi and Islamabad during the last two months. The British officials feared that Qaeda and Taliban terrorists could sneak into their country.Sources said immigration officer of the British High Commission, acting on a tip-off on February 2, offloaded six Afghan citizens – with their passports numbered as NRO159751, PH1158611, AJ0152881 and BK36877931 - from PIA's flight PK-785 set for London.

    During the investigation, it was revealed that Afghan nationals had paid 25,000 Pounds each for sending them to the UK. FIA Additional Director Sajjad Haider was reportedly found involved in the scandal.

    Haider is a very 'influential' person. A reference was filed in accountability court of Rawalpindi against Haider in 2004 and he was sentenced for three years. He appealed against the decision but high court did not give him relief. He was reinstated on his post through NRO on July 18, 2008, and was promoted to the seat of deputy director. After Supreme Court's decision in NRO case, his promotion was cancelled.

    This is not the first time PIA is in trouble in UK. Earlier it was banned by UK as they were using very old planes then they begged to their UAE brother and ask for old emirates B-777 -200 in the name of Islam ,then PIA staff was found stealing stuff from UK hotels.

    now ferrying terrorist.

    No doubt PIA should be banned not from UK but also from USA

    Man saw a beautiful girl at an airport cafe, sitting next to him

    He thinks that She must be a flight attendant, but which airline does she wrk for?

    Hoping to get her attention, he leans toward her & says Emirates
    She didnt notice him

    Again he leans towards her & says United Air’s
    No response again!

    Again he leans forward to say her another airline’s name

    She turns to him & says:

    “Ki Takleef ay baandraa?”

    Man smiles & says

    Ahhh… PIA :D

    Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen.

    This is your captain Welcoming both seated and standing passengers on board of PIA.

    We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off, it was due to bad weather and some overtime I had to put in at the bakery.

    --------------

    This is flight 717 to Lahore. Landing there is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in Pakistan. And, if luck is in our favour, we may even be landing on your village!
