PIA A320 at Islamabad on Dec 12th 2021, engine troubles reduce passenger count from 186 to 6
Last Update: December 12, 2021 / 16:26:42 GMT/Zulu time
The passengers were kept aboard while engineers worked on the engine and thought to have fixed the problem. Unusual noises from the engine prevented the aircraft from taxiing out for departure. engineers worked a second time on the engine and again thought to have fixed the problem, a third departure attempt ended in vain due to unusual noise from the engine. Passengers now insisted to deboard the aircraft, all but 6 passengers left the aircraft. Engineers finally succeeded in fixing the engine issue and the aircraft departed again about 5 hours after the first departure (which already had been delayed by 2.5 hours) and reached Karachi with a delay of 7.5 hours.
