This photo was taken by Konstantin at Dubai Airport on December 7, 2006 and it shows pair of Airbus A321-231s (registration TC-IEF & TC-IEG) in basic PIA markings on all-white fuselage and tail. PIA acquired the two narrow-body Airbuses on wet-lease from Turkish carrier Inter Airlines for four months from late November 2006 to late March 2007. The two aircraft during the Hajj season were used to ferry pilgrims from smaller airports to main hubs like Karachi and Lahore for pilgrims' onward journey to Jeddah on bigger aircraft. The A321s were also flown on PIA's domestic and regional route network
