Passengers on a Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flight from Karachi barred two politicians from boarding the aircraft after the two VIPs delayed the flight by over two hours.
A video clip was posted online showing Senator Rehman Malik and Dr Ramesh Kumar Wakwani, a Member of National Assembly, being ejected from the Islamabad-bound flight by angry passengers.
The disgruntled passengers can be heard grumbling, “So-called VIPs” and “My foot VIPs” as they wait for the two delayed politicians aboard the aircraft. They can be heard talking to PIA crew who seem to be attempting to calm the travellers down.
