PIA slaughters goat before clearing ATR aircraft for flight
18 Dec, 2016
Chitral — In an unusual move, Pakistan International Airline slaughtered a black goat as sacrifice before clearing it’s second ATR aircraft for flight after a shake down inspection at Islamabad airport. Whatever the religious connotation of this act be, it sure has shaken the trust of passengers who now feel PIA itself is not confident about the health of it’s aircraft and is now resorting to sacrificing goats to ward off accidents caused by technical failures / incompetency. — CN report, 18 Dec 2016.
