VN-A666 being prepared for its ferry flight back to Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Rumours are the Airblue will wet lease the remaining 3 that are in operation with PIA right now
Apparently PIA used these VietJet Air A320s on six months wet lease term.

* VN-A666 had arrived in Karachi six months ago on July 27, 2017, to begin wet lease term with PIA.

* Her three sisterships i.e. VN-A668, VN-A689 and VN-A699 had arrived in Karachi on August 3, 2017, to begin their wet lease term with PIA. Maybe those three A320s will be returned on February 3?

PIA has been planning to induct four dry lease A320s for the past two years.

In these two years they have wet leased three different times first Bulgarian A320s, then 737-800s from a Turkish airline, finally wet leased A320s from a Vietnamese airline.

Does PIA not have enough A320 cockpit crew to fly 15 planes???

Once again the four planes are going to leave PIA disrupting flights and once again driving passengers away from PIA.

Poor management.

Disruption started. PK 304 (Karachi-Lahore) which was supposed to leave at 3:00 pm this (Sunday) afternoon has been delayed by three plus hours and will now leave at 6:15pm. It could possibly be due to fog/smog there. The plane visible at the gate is a 777.
