As per my understanding, the flights will be landed/take off from secondary runway after rehabilitation & after that they will upgrade the Main runway 03/21 for B777

I made my last return flight from Pakistan via Faisalabad Int. and a very unique thing I noticed there is that there were no weight calculators on luggage belts during boardings. It might be the best choice for those who like to travel with overweight baggages.

Wow! What a suggestion. Ever heard of aircrafts' cargo capacity? It could be a threat to the safety of flight.
