As Ex-MEA aircraft, are these aircraft expected to be fitted with the recaro recliner Business seats MEA had, and IFE capability, or have these been removed or will be removed in house?

Thanks

Nicely painted, and now will be replaced by the shitting paint job PIA does on its aircraft.

I hope its the euro white instead of the mish mash of the 1980s to 2004 livery.

Never seizes to amaze how they cannot be bothered with having the aircraft painted in the airline's livery prior to delivery, despite lacking the facilities to do a proper paintjob of their own.

Since this Aircraft is not coming from Everett Factory, so the responsibility of painting is on the shoulder of lessee, PIA being in feeble financial health can't opt for painting at some where else. Hence only option is to paint it by themselves..
