Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is in dire straits and has been forced to cancel over 300 flights in the past 10 days due to a severe shortage of fuel and a financial crisis.
This crisis is considered one of the worst in the airline’s history, and it’s primarily due to unpaid dues to Pakistan State Oil (PSO), which has led to a significant cut in fuel supply.
Since October 14, PIA has had to cancel 322 flights, including 134 on international routes, causing immense inconvenience to passengers.
On Tuesday alone, 51 flights were canceled, with 27 of them being domestic routes, leaving passengers stranded without a clear idea of when they can expect their flights to depart. This has led many passengers to seek alternative travel arrangements.
