PIA warning


KARACHI: The Pakis­tan International Air­lines (PIA) has warned its pilots and cabin crew of strict action if they are found intoxicated during duty time.

“Even smoking [while on duty] is not allowed,” said PIA’s spokesperson Mashhood Tajwar on Friday. Those found violating the rules could face suspension or termination of services, he added.

The warning came aga­inst the backdrop of an in­­­­­­cident in which a steward was found to have consumed alcohol before a Lahore-bound flight a couple of days ago.
