hahahahahahahhahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahaha

Someone should find out what each advertisement costs PIA.

They float like 20 aircraft tenders a year and maybe one goes through.

Blood suckers of the Pakistani people.

To save 15,000 jobs a year the government throws away 36 billion rupees.

That is 24 lacs per job.

So much good can be done with 36 billion rupees year in a country where 25 million children do not go to school.

A country where only 30 percent women have access to birth control facilities resulting in our exploding population.

A country where a lot of people think polio drops are haram.

PIA management should be ashamed of themselves for asking for money from a government living on debt. Last year the government added 2,500 billion rupees to our national debt increasing total debt to 25,000 billion.

Seems these four dry leased aircraft will replace currently four wet leased VietJet Air A320s.

Bids opening day today.

Bailout package for PIA approved on November 1 by ECC may help the airline in acquiring these aircraft.

Aircraft that met bidding conditions with lowest evaluated bidders DAW and Avolon. All are Airbus A320 family aircraft and I hope they select those aircraft that are powered with CFM engines.

PIA should get A321. They were looking for A321 for a long time.
A321 is the missing link in the fleet :-k :-k

Looks like PIA already in the mode of procuring Aircraft based on CFM engines.

AirBerlin is currently struggling and it is great oppurtunity for PIA to get hold of MSN 6639 and 6979.

This will help PIA to diversify A320 family Aircraft with greater capacity of A321. Recently PIA did float another tender for capacity of 120 Plus. So chances for inducting A319 is also possible. I wish if PIA could add A318 to operate on secondary markets like KDU, SKZ, GIL (after runway expansion) e.t.c

A321-200s would be perfect in 16-174 class layout. 190 seats in total.

PIA needs a 200 seats on the longer range routes maybe operate to some European routes.

Re-start Amsterdam, Rome and Frankfurt via Ankara using it as a technical stopover, offering three weekly flights to each station from Lahore and Islamabad.

How PIA is going to finance the leased A/c when all indicators point that current year loss of Rs.40 billion will top up accrue debt of Rs 316 billion as of Dec 31, 2016.

Debt is not 316 billion but total losses are.

Losses include exchange rate losses and depreciation of assets which is like a paper loss.

I think actual bank loans are like 190 billion rupees or total liabilities are 190 billion not sure.
