    It was time the private carriers took over..
    Look at Air India..
    Unless PIA is privatized.. and quick.. its best gone.

    Long story.. but similar to the way the situation with PIA, Border attacks.. OBL.. Hafiz Saeed.. Balochistan.. etc.
    Its the people.. not the government institutions which are perpetually apathetic.

    My father knows the MD very well.. and might even setup a flight kitchen for him.
    If that happens.. rest assured you will get much better "edible" items than any of the others.

    That seems like an odd strategy.. instead of maintaining the current fleet, buy new aircraft so that they too can be left parked on the tarmac after a few flights and then foreclose to the banks.
    Maybe not odd for somebody out to make a lot of bucks.
