    Hundreds of workers of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) protested across the country on Tuesday, incensed over the national flag carrier’s deal with Turkish Airlines and demanding the removal of the PIA’s managing director.
    A complete strike was observed at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad, disrupting the flight schedule. As many as 18 flights were unable to depart while 12 flights, both domestic and international, could not land as protestors lay down on the runway.
