Infact there are two dead bodies schedule to Arrive. And dead bodies have priority over Cargo, they should unload Cargo to Adjust dead bodies. This pretty much sum up sorry state of PIA matters which compel this very welcome closure of JFK route.

In my opinion this particular incident is enough to hand over pink slip to PIA D.M. JFK, after his arrival in to Pakistan.

Im not sure what the protocols are in other airlines for removing dead bodies which are being carried for free vs luggage of fare paying passengers.
You might need to read it one more time, I wrote Cargo, not the luggage of fare paying passenger. Both are different things.

While loading cargo there is a priority list for loading of cargo and dead bodies comes pretty high at the Priority list. Govt of Pakistan officially declares that PIA will be carrying dead bodies for free, but it does not mean that PIA can abandon it at the eleventh hour.

Any news about a code share etc. for flights to US? or has PIA completely abandoned the US market for good?
Would have made sense to partner with another airline (prefer Turkish) to continue offering a service to US.
