Staff Report

KARACHI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) aircraft engineers have decreased the pace of work in protest, delaying 13 flights.

Aircraft Engineers Association leader Shaukat Jamshed told SAMAA the managing director turned down a request to increase salaries, stating that the airline's performance has not yet improved. This prompted the engineers' association to withhold clearance for aircrafts to take off, as required by quality control, delaying 13 flights so far. Even PIA's managing director flew out of the city by private plane.

PIA spokesman Syed Sultan Hasan told SAMAA that six flights were delayed Saturday and one flight Sunday for technical reasons.
