A beggar is seen on a flight in a video that has been circulating on the internet. Many people believe that the video is recent and that the beggar is from Pakistan due to its wide dissemination.
However, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has released a statement regarding the video, claiming that it is not recent and does not depict a beggar from Pakistan.
The video of the beggar begging on a plane that is circulating on social media is not from Pakistan. According to the information provided, the video is more than five years old and was filmed on a Doha-Shiraz flight.⬇️ pic.twitter.com/Wf6EckSVjP

According to the PCAA, the footage was apparently taken on a flight from Doha to Shiraz approximately five years ago, and the individual in the video is of Iranian nationality. Therefore, the video has no connection to Pakistan. Furthermore, the PCAA states that there is no TG507 flight route between Karachi and Bangkok, despite some social media discussions referencing it.
