Now that's what you call poor project management. Or are we missing something?

So they have installed new seat covers, new carpet and carried out deep cleaning. But, in a few months they will repeat this process when the new seats arrive. Isn't it sensible to replace carpet and seat covers at the time of replacing the seats. Are they really that stupid? or are we missing some information.

Can someone please shed some light on this .........

^ I think AP-BHX is not among the five PIA Boeing 777s that will get new seats and IFE.

It seems two Boeing 777-200LRs (AP-BGY & AP-BGZ) and three Boeing 777-300ERs (AP-BHV, AP-BHW & AP-BID) will get new seats and IFE.

The whole 777 fleet should get the new seats so the PIA 777 cabins get standardised
