On a serious note PIA can do good business by leasing out its grounded 777s to Qatar airways as they have a shortage of planes for cargo aswell as passengers flights
Just like Cathay Pacific is doing leasing out 777s

Sounds like a good idea especially now that Qatar is grounding its 350s one by one after issues developed with the skin of the model, but Qatar will probably prefer aircraft with good seats and well-equipped cabins.
