A PIA Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A310-300, registration AP-BEG performing flight PK-340 from Karachi to Faisalabad (Pakistan), had lined up on runway 25L and was cleared for takeoff at 05:39L (00:39Z), when the crew applied TOGA thrust without permitting the engines (CF6) to stabilize at an intermediate power setting. The left hand engine accelerated to takeoff thrust quickly while the right hand engine responded with a pronounced delay to the thrust lever movement. As result the crew lost directional control, the aircraft veered right off the runway, the takeoff was rejected, thrust was reduced to idle again, the crew regained directional control and returned the aircraft, that had been on soft ground with all gear already, back onto the paved surface of the runway. The aircraft subsequently returned to the apron. No injuries occurred, the aircraft took out a couple of runway edge lights and sustained damage.

A replacement Airbus A310-300 registration AP-BGR departed Karachi about 4 hours after the rejected takeoff.

The incident aircraft has not been seen on radar since, standing June 18th about 58 hours after the rejected takeoff.
