There were technical issues in engine, landing gear door

A PIA flight from Toronto to Karachi had to abort take-off at the Toronto airport Monday, due to a technical fault. 

PK-784 was to left for Karachi Monday evening but it developed a technical fault while taxiing to the runway, a PIA spokesperson said. The flight returned from the take-off point.

The fault occurred in the landing gear door and engine of the aircraft, according to sources.

The plane was grounded after engineers failed to fix the fault.

Passengers aboard the plane protested against PIA for keeping them aboard for over an hour. However, they were shifted to the airport lounge.

The PIA provided the passengers living in Toronto, free rides to their homes, and people who didn't have any accommodation were shifted to hotels.

    PIA’s food quality on domestic flights is deteriorating day by day and no one is checking. I tracelled from Ialamabad to Karachi last friday on PK 309, the food quality was very poor whereas Seren Air flight food was much better.

    This article is incorrect and is misleading! The airplane never took off and landed at all!! On the runway the whole plane started to rattle and make such violent noise. All the passenger on board were so scared. A few vouchers were handed out but most of the passenger had to find a ride home at 11pm at night , going as far as Oshawa. They Promised we would be contacted with an update on a flight status and we got nothing. PIA website does not believe in updating there flight information. I will never travel PIA ever again., terrible service!!

    Incorrect news – the aircraft made a ramp return due to a malfunction with one of the landing gear doors. The aircraft did not take off.
