TAECO is HAECO’s Mainland subsidiary and most of Cathay Pacific ‘s heavy maintenance is done there due to cheaper labour costs, It’s only a 90 minute flight from Hong Kong

What do you think when the upgrade has been finished? I am thinking to book a PIA Business Class flight from CDG in January 2019 and would need to consider this.

^ First B777 expected to undergo cabin upgrade program in last quarter of 2018 and be ready by the start of 2019.

But, such plans/programs can get changed/cancelled with the change of government or PIA management by that time.

Only possible if anything is left from the recent government injection of 19 billion rupees which is probably going into paying salaries and other pressing payments.
