A photo of PIA steward who was calming down an agitated baby went viral on the internet last week. Pakistan International Airlines in the recent past has been in the news for all the wrong reasons like fake pilot licenses and the financial issues etc. However just a few days ago, singer and actor Fakhr-e-Alam shared a photo that showed the positive side of PIA. Fakhr-e-Alam shared the photo of steward cradling a baby in his arms. Fakhr-e-Alam said that the PIA official came to the aid of the exhausted mother and gave her a break. Fakhr-e-Alam took to Twitter and posted two photos of the steward.
A friend onboard @Official_PIA ISD to KHI early morning flt yesterday shared this. A baby was crying non stop, the mother was exhausted & stressed, she couldn’t comfort the child. So the head pursur Mr.Tauheed helped the child sleep. Now that truly is GREAT people to fly with. 👍🏼 pic.twitter.com/yM4aynPA1i
