American "Spy" offloaded from PIA flight

Islamabad: The Foreign Office is investigating an incident involving an American who was offloaded from a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Lahore to Karachi. The alternate energy consultant was on his way to Karachi for a meeting with a solar panel manufacturer when he was asked by the captain to return to the departure lounge for questioning by airport security.

The incident occurred when a female passenger sitting across the aisle informed the stewardess that the foreigner was acting suspiciously and had been talking on his cell phone. She had heard words like "maps", "bumm" and "deal". She also heard him mention the name "Raymond" and thats what made her really uncomfortable , as the Raymond Davis saga is still fresh in the minds of most Pakistanis.

A US Consulate official told Faux News that this was all a major misunderstanding. He claimed that the passenger was talking to his client about Google maps and the GPS location for their solar farm project in Sindh. He was just a bit loud and said he was bummed out at the flight delay but had got a chance to buy a DVD box set of Everybody Loves Raymond for a thousand rupees from the duty free shop, which was a great deal.

A PIA spokesperson said that they take security very seriously but had released the passenger after only five hours of questioning. PIA offered to pay for the passengers overnight hotel stay but he is reported to have taken the next Emirates flight to Dubai.
