PIA flight’s emergency slide activated at Beijing airport

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight PK853 for sector Tokyo-Beijing – Islamabad had to offload 50 passengers after emergency slide got activated during the loading of inflight meals at the Beijing airport. Apart from offloading passengers with their luggage, a delay of nearly three hours was caused. The passengers were provided with hotel accommodation and were adjusted in next available flights.

Earlier this month, a woman aboard a PIA flight mistakenly opened the emergency exit door thinking it was the toilet while the plane was on the runway at the Manchester Airport.
