Historically speaking

Regarding Mughal Sultanate a statesmen once said don't worry why it collapsed but ask how it continued for so long. Same holds good for PIA.
It is right from beginning everything but a commercial entity. Political appointments, postings and promotions, incompetency and inefficiencies is its hallmark for atleast three decades. PIA is in the grip of yellow fever, used to be the code word for most of the staff bending over each other to get approval for official trip(OCS) abroad mostly on flimsy grounds. Since the Color of OCS form was yellow it gets synonymous with yellow fever.
PIA fate was sealed when with this culture head to head competition with gulf carrier came with full fury after year 2000.
Bye Bye
