If true, to me this sounds to be the worst kind of behavior by a professional. Anyone has more info on this? No wonder PK is going further down each year.

Hmmm, at least India and Pakistan both have dysfunctional national airlines (or at least pilots working for the national airline)

Its passengers who are being quoted, and news media in Pakistan has become very tabloid, so i wouldnt take it seriously.

Just about confirmed it was a refuelling stopover as ISB was not providing fuel to PIA due to shortage.

COMPLETE BS! THis is just angered passengers making up stories out of anger and rage. Though it does show the maturity levels of some people these days.

They were passengers on that flight. That would be good eye witness.What's wrong with that ?

A government run airline would not come forth if this actually happened given that taxpayers would not take the news in a good way.

Good thing it doesn't matter because this story is entirely false. The diversion was to uplift fuel... Case closed

Manny, how would the passengers on the flight know that the girl's father was one of the flight crew? ijs...

Just sounds like anti Pakistan propaganda from India. They know millions will read this and believe it and enforce the previous propaganda they have read. India is in dire need of help.

The whole thing can be a bogus story, but to be honest this was not the only source the story was reported in. See here a Pakistani source: http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-ne...-lahore-for-pia-officer-s-daughter

Actually it's the 'same source' of the story - unnamed passengers reporting their views of the reason of the stop - and disagreeing with the reason given by the crew at the time. The second story quotes the first almost word for word on key information.

That tells anyone trained in journalism, or who actually studies the media - that there is one source for the information. That source is almost certainly a single person with absolutely no supporting source used or available.

Neither story actually quotes a source. Neither story provides any details other than rumors.

Both are anti-VVIP treatment stories with tantalizing few details. No date of incident, no comments or attempt to get comments from the airline.

We just recently had a thread on this forum about passengers being allowed to deplane during diversions because the diversion airport was their final destination. It happens all around the world - it has happened to me in the US.

Or whole world actually.

I could have maybe believed this kind of story if it had been a daughter of some high company chief or something, but this story is obviously rubbish, no airline crew would ever do that as it would sure result in getting fired at any airline. I doubt even state run airlines would like extra costs caused by such stop.

Read my post again please. I wasn't claiming that the story is true. I was merely responding to a claim that this was Indian propaganda.
