This Maltese airline has three ex Singapore Airlines A330-300s.

PIA should have chartered all three of them and resumed some sort of schedule to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Paris, Milan, Copenhagen and Oslo.

This 285 seater A333 is ex Singapore Airlines cabin product and the J class seat recline is 150-160 degrees so not a flat bed.

Nevertheless the overall on board cabin product and seat capacity is fine for PAK-UK.
