The million $ questions

Post by Moin »

1. Is PIA spending more than it is earning?

2. If PIA were to be privatised, is there anyone who would be interested in taking it on?

3. Is it true that PIA spent almost $25 million on the 6 AB4's it ended up selling for only $10 million?

4. Is it true that the interior of the PIA head office at KHI resembles more a 7 star hotel and the new Chairman is now renovating the entire place and has placed an order for Italian made furniture and a lift to reach upto the first floor?

You're right that is weird. They haven't said anything about the order on their website and also airblue is not even listed as a customer on the website. Weird. :?

AirBlue is listed on the order and deliviries.xls spreadsheet thats where all airbus customers are listed, even bankrupt ones too.

As far no press release,,, it is a million $$$ question.

May be because the airline is not directly buying from airbus, maybe through ILFC or some other company ?
