Look at this 'bakra' mess-even the bakra must be regretting why the heck did I get there on the first place...

SC temporarily bars PIA from using logo of Markhor on its planes

https://tribune.com.pk/story/1709014/1- ... or-planes/

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Sunday temporarily barred Pakistan International Airline (PIA) from using the logo of Markhor on its planes instead of national flag.

When Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar inquired what was replacing the Pakistani flag on the planes’ tails, PIA Managing Director Musharraf Rasool Cyan replied that the new logo will be of the country’s national animal: Markhor.

In response to the chief justice’s question pertaining to cost of said endeavor, the MD stated that it would cost Rs2.7 million per plane to change the logo. However, Justice Nisar observed that the cost for each plane would be Rs3.4 million and sought a report detailing tender and contractor information.

During court proceedings, the chief justice asked Cyan what his niece was doing in the national carrier. However, the PIA MD denied having any family member working in PIA.

PIA Markhor

PIA introduced a new livery with its logo and design to include a painting of the Markhor, the national animal which inhabits the mountainous regions of the country.

The Markhor was to be visible on the aircraft tail, while the cockpit of PIA planes integrated Pakistan’s flag, accompanied by PIA – written in English and Urdu.

^ Maybe PIA dropped official ceremony to unveil the A320 in new livery due to Supreme Court ruling on the livery.

By the way, the official unveiling ceremony would have been less exciting due to already leaked photos of the A320 getting new livery in the hangar.

PIA plan for re-branding seems badly collapsed, even they were unable to properly reveal new logo & livery. It's a sad state of affairs at PIA.

BTW, PIA employees need some sense of corporate secrets. They always leak internal photos & documents which cause huge damage/embarrassment to the airline. PIA official plans fail due to internal leaks & open discussions on electronic & social media.

Employees should be barred to run individual social media accounts of their concerned departments & sections.

Just saw a picture of a friend and in that it can be seen that AP-BGY has its engine number 2 fan cowling being removed and being grounded at the New Islamabad Airport. Wondering what went wrong with its engine.
Seems like AP-BGY is not gonna be returning to the skies anytime soon.

Does anyone agree with me that the new livery looks better in flesh? (Except the elephant like Pakistani flag)
The love for one's country is a splendid thing. But why should one stop at the border? :D

The large PIA has been done to death been on the planes since 2005.

Second the PIA font looks HIDEOUS.

When you dont have money to hire the best do the simple job.

PIA on the green tail. All euro white on the air frame. PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL on the on top of the windows.

This is not even a paint job they are putting stickers on the planes.

I hate it.
