BTW, with the introduction of this revised livery design they should also have painted Pakistan flag in new and more attractive style on aircraft tail and that would have made it a very much new livery.

So far, only two B777s have been painted in this livery. So, they still can introduce completely new style of displaying Pakistan flag on aircraft tail.

Does the current design is not the perfect one? BTW, which design you imagine?

^ Through some sort of proposals' invitation or open competition they can get some good design to display Pakistan flag on tail in more attractive and stylish manner.

I think arts students from Pakistani universities/colleges can give good suggestions.

Was the management sleeping when they were repainting BHX??

Or like everything in PIA they thought of it last minute.

BHX is in the old crappy livery with the stripes yet the "new interior"

BTW, It was better to write PIA website (www.piac.aero) in official PIA font "IMPERATOR BOLD". That may have a perfect look along with "PIA" on forward fuselage.

Aircraft type marking (Boeing 777-200LR) should have also be written on it's default position.

Ew.
This is why I'm against the eurowhite scheme. PIA can't maintain it.
Signs of wear start appearing so quickly, they ruin the whole look. AP-BMS looks like it was painted decades ago, and now BGZ is taking the same route.
PIA should stick to liveries that cover their bodies so the damage isn't that visible.

^ I think AP-BMS did not receive proper fresh coat of white paint on entire fuselage and that's why it appears with patches of paint. Maybe quality of patch work done is also not good.

Euro white livery appeared in good condition on PIA Boeing 747-300s from their induction in 1999 to 2004 when the airline introduced Pakistan flag tail livery.

Look at the right wing joint on the second photo, it looks swollen, is that normal?
