#MarshalMalik #ArCmdrHamdani firing pilots without show cause notice. Unheard off!

aljazeera.com/indepth/featur…
Government's list had a number of errors such as including the names of deceased pilots, confusing pilots with similar names, and classifying pilots as belonging to airlines they had never flown with or taking exams they never attempted.

#CAA @Official_PIA @PALPA2020
Pilot A said that he had been approached by colleagues with an offer to help him cheat, with the aid of #PCAA officials, in exchange for payment when he had been attempting his commercial pilot's licence (CPL) written exams in 2009.

allez je refais une petite lecture commentée de l'avis @CNIL #StopCovid
pour rappel, le précédent avis portait sur les principes et le protocole ( #protocoleROBERT), celui-ci porte sur l'app et le décret accompagné d'une analyse d'impact (#AIPD #PIA #DPIA)
Rappel d'abord que "l’objectif à valeur constitutionnelle de protection de la santé constitue un impératif majeur de nature à justifier dans certaines conditions, des atteintes transitoires au droit à la protection de la vie privée et des données à caractère personnel".

I lost both my parents in this tragic & horrific crash. I submit to Allah’s will. However the ordeal we are suffering at the hands of #PIA is inexcusable. Callous, Insensitive, incompetent.... #PIAPlaneCrash
@Official_PIA it has been 4 days, how hard is it to organize a communication protocol that is both accurate and compassionate. Why are we getting multiple phone calls at every shift change asking extremely crudely, “aap ko bodies mil gai hain?”
@Official_PIA isn’t this your job? Don’t you have any capable crisis management personnel? Why are you so heartless? You wake up the grieving family at 2:30am to ask the same asinine questions, aap ka naam keya hai? Aap ka rishta kya hai? Bodies mil gai hain?

HRCP shares the grief of all those who have lost loved ones in the crash of #PIA 8303 in #Karachi earlier today. It is imperative for both PIA and the Civil Aviation Authority to investigate the incident transparently and ascertain the causes of the crash.
PIA and the CAA need to ensure that all aircraft are properly maintained and flight safety precautions implemented. All those who were affected at the crash site - a residential neighborhood - should be compensated. There must also be more investment in rescue operation brigades.

Long Rant of a traveling Pakistani:
Booked flight 2 months in advance through #PIA out of patriotism (and owing to my cheap nature). The return flight was from Copenhagen to Karachi through Islamabad and Oslo. First shock: automatic luggage transfer is too revolutionary an idea..
.. for #PIA and Civil Aviation Authority. So one has to collect all the luggage, get out of the airport, re-enter and go through check-in and security (2 times) for each domestic transfer plus 4 (yes 4) immigration/passport control checks for international transfers in addition..
.. to FIA checks. If you’ve been through airports in Pakistan, it is exhausting both physically and mentally because your experience is often reliant on the mood of the staff that you interact with. Shock number 2: #PIA changes my flight times WITHOUT INFORMING ME. Consequently..
