I dont think so they will give PIA 772LR's a special paint scheme, has PIA ever given a special paint scheme to any of the aircraft on any occasion? But still I want to see some of PIA a/c's in special colours. Examples are of Qantas, Malaysia etc...

Most probably they will put a small 'Visit Pakistan Year 2006' sticker on aircraft's fuselage like the one seen here on a Malaysian 747:

Also when they inducted the 747-300s from Cathay Pacific they did put Pashmina livery on them first, then a couple of other aircraft. Then they changed most of them back to sporty 90s style as seen here:

I had a photo of PIA Boeing 747 in 1980s livery with small logo of some field hockey tournament applied on its fuselage. I believe PIA was one of the main sponsors of that hockey tournament. I'll post that photo here when I find it.

Sticker is smallest thing they can do but this time they are talking about giving special colours to a/c, lets see what acctually they do, but yes if they cannot give the special colours they can put a big sticker on a/c like this Malaysian airlines a/c.

Its always an option, considering the B772LR are going to be painted in the latest colours and delivered at the start of the year maybe they can paint the aircrafts in a special scheme instead.

Unlike previous aircrafts that were already in PIA colours, these two aircrafts have yet to painted maybe they can design and paint these two aircrafts only to celebrate the occassion ...

Pakistan's soft image: Foreign PR firms may be hired

ISLAMABAD:
Dissatisfied with the performance of foreign missions, the federal government is planning to engage international public relations companies and advertising agencies to promote a softer image of the country.

Official sources told Daily Times that President General Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz had directed media consultants to prepare a comprehensive international media strategy. A team of media consultants, led by Mehreen Khan, was already working at the Prime Minister's Secretariat to deal with international media affairs.

Sources said that the group of consultants held a few meetings with the president and the prime minister and apprising them of the salient features of the campaign involving the international newspapers and television channels.

One of the main tasks of the consultants is to counter the "negative" propaganda against Pakistan by recognised newspapers and television channels. Sources said that the international media campaign assisted by advertising agencies and public relations firms would promote Pakistan's culture and tourism. The campaign would also project Pakistan as attractive for investment. However, it was not clear how much money would be required to launch such a big image-building drive.

According to the proposal, a rapid response unit will be set up to monitor and counter the international media reports aiming to malign Pakistan's image. shahzad raza

It's high-time Pakistan created a promotional strategy. India has been doing this (deliberately, or not) since the 60's...
