PIA Problems In Oslo (15/12/01)

Tue Dec 18, 2001 10:33 pm

I read in the newspaper that PIAs Pakistan bound flight the should have left OSL on Sat 15/12 was delayed until 16/12. But when the pax arrived on Sunady, they only had the pleasure to be told that the flight wouldn't leave before Monday. The 400 pax were angry. PIA dind't provide hotels etc, and nobody managed to get home to celebrate some kind of religios cermony.

My questions are. What kind of mechanical problems delayed the flight for so long time?
And PIA use the A310 on this flight, but it only seats (190pax), so which aircrafts where in use on this flight
(was it the 742/743?)

"Eid" is the religious festival that they missed, and PIA sometimes use the 747-200/300 to Oslo besides the regular A310 service Smile

They may have had to change an engine for some reason and if they don´t have a spare engine, they may have to wait a while for a new engine to arrive.
Anyways, this is just a theory.
