Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is notorious for making headlines for all the wrong reasons. This time, it was a live worm in the food provided to one of the passengers during a flight to London.
To passenger’s disgust, his plate not only featured Kheer but a creepy crawler as well.
The video recorded by the passenger made rounds on social media, slandering the national carrier’s reputation even more.
PIA’s slogan of ‘Great people to fly with’ could well be changed with ‘Not-so-great worms to fly with’. The customer made sure no one ate any of the food served aboard the flight as he created a commotion and the rest of the passengers returned their food uneaten as well.
PIA Spokesperson, Mashood Tajwar, promised to get the matter investigated, saying the food was purchased from a local caterer in Lahore and not prepared in PIA’s own kitchens.
The explanation, by no means, justifies the presence of a worm inside a food item.
