Her colleagues found out she left when she left a note in her room.
After an air hostess from Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) went on the run, the airline’s administrators have issued a show cause notice to her.
Shazia Saeed was on duty when she was on board flight PK-733 from Lahore to Paris on April 6, 2019. She was due to return to Pakistan on April 9, 2019.
Saeed had requested the administration to book her duty on the flight.
After she landed in the French capital, Saeed left her hotel without informing anyone. She left without her luggage.
He colleagues stated that they were unaware that Shazia left as she did not tell them.
It was revealed that after she changed her outfit and left the hotel, she met with her boyfriend and together, they fled to Belgium.
Her colleagues found out she left when she left a note in her room. Sources claimed it was a resignation letter but spokesperson denied the claim.
They alerted the airline’s management department and they launched an investigation into the incident and the whereabouts of Shazia.
Now, the administrators have issued a show cause notice to the missing air hostess.
It was served to Saeed after she did not notify senior members of staff before disappearing from work.
Saeed must explain before a court as to why action should not be taken against her.
A spokesperson said that further action would be taken following her reply to the show cause notice.
PIA intends to also take action if she does not return to Pakistan to explain her reason for leaving without prior notice.
The airline has lost its reputation due to long flight delays and illegal appointments.
One case involved Fareeha Mukhtar, who went missing in Toronto after boarding a flight from Lahore.
The hostess had been suspended by PIA in 2015 after she was accused of smuggling money and mobile phones to other countries.
She was eventually allowed to return but after she failed to board her return flight, an inquiry was held against her.
Mukhtar allegedly took political asylum in Canada and managed to board the flight using political influence.
A spokesperson said that he had no information on the matter but said:
“An inquiry into the matter has been ordered and the PIA is pursuing the matter with Canadian authorities.”
As a result, the Pakistani airline was fined £6,000 (Rs.5.7 Lakh).
Mukhtar was later tracked down and found to be living in Toronto with another PIA air hostess.
