Passengers Arrested For Upgrading Themselves

14 Passengers on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Islamabad, Pakistan, to Manchester, England, were arrested after they upgraded themselves to first class from the crowded coach section of a 747.  Economy class on the aircraft was quite full while the premium section went empty, so these 14 people (and who the hell can blame them) helped themselves to PIA’s plusher-than-you-might-suspect first class section after sitting on the tarmac at Islamabad’s sweltering airport for 4 hours.  The passengers then refused to leave the section after being asked by crew members and were, hence, arrested upon arrival at Manchester.
