Two Etihad flights- one bound for Mahe in Seychelles (EY 622) and the other for Lahore (EY 421) escaped mid-air collision over Pakistani air space as the Radar Control System in Pakistan’s Pisni area was shut for maintenance and the audio frequency system was unreachable because of bad weather, according to a Pakistani website that quoted a TV news report without naming the channel. Aerospace Diary could not confirm this.

It was the airlines' Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) that alarmed the pilots about the situation.
