KARACHI- A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) pilot attempted to pass off his two-year-old son as an infant in order to take him from Karachi to New York.

In violation of the airline’s rules, Captain Faisal reportedly tried to fly his son on an infant’s ticket in the cockpit of the international flight.

According to our sources, the pilot managed to take his son to Manchester but the automated system at the airport was not able to issue a boarding pass to the son; the pass was issued manually after the pilot informed the administration that he would pay for his son’s ticket. He and his son have managed to reach New York.
