HINDUSTAN TIMES, (Pakistan), KUWAIT NEWS AGENCY (Kuwait), RFI, LE FIGARO (France)
A woman traveling from Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore to Paris via Milan fell asleep on the flight, only to be woken up 18 hours later at her starting point, reports Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
She woke up expecting to enjoy the glories of the French capital, says RFI, only to discover she was back in Pakistan.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) are investigating how ground crew failed to notice the woman during the plane’s stopover in Paris, according to the Hindustan Times.
The Pakistani airline sent her back to Paris today on another flight, writes le Figaro. As there was no PIA flight to Paris, she was asked to pay for the extra ticket back to France.
After protests from her family, the airline promised to pay for the ticket, says RFI.
