100 billion of revenue crossed. Its worth mentioning here that when Ijaz Haroon took over, annual revenue stood at 72 billion. In past 3 years, it has crossed 100 billion with a huge improvement in seat factor. I believe it is a big success.

I don't think so. I travel very frequently on Lahore-Karachi on PIA, and it's always hard to get a seat on PIA. But yes, seat factor on domestic flights must have improved for a short while because of Air Blue.

It is more important to see how PIA is in loss than just to look at the total loss amount in isolation. PIA is operationally profitable, only thing is that PIA has so much of debt and that too in USD that it is very hard to achieve profitability and sustain it on top of that. Thanks to Mushie & Shukie!

I want to call this vote of confidence, as vote of confidence of incomptency of PPP.

Special thanks to Mushi and Shortcut Aziz for all the presents of classic incomptencies.
