  • about 20 years ago, my experience of travelling to Delhi by PIA was so horrifying and humiliating that I had decided never again to fly anywhere by PIA. The PIA staff at Delhi Airport harassed and humiliated many passengers, including me and my wife.
    Twenty years later we had no option other than flying to Delhi by PIA because no airline other than PIA operated from Karachi to Delhi. I was very apprehensive, though the agent assured me that during the two decades the PiA had improved considerably.
    On our return flight from Delhi to Karachi, I and my wife were humiliated and harassed the same was we had been 2o years ago.
