I think we can now expect PIA's direct non-stop flight from PAKISTAN to US/CANADA...

Not bad, except for the incomparable service bit, and please tell me the guy is wearing socks.

Not bad at all, especially promoting the airline in TIME magazine !!

BTW, i remember seeing a very similiar poster before from PIA, it was one of the "PIA PEOPLE" posters where the format of the poster was exactly the same.

A very ho'hum ad. Notice they don't specify which routes will be non-stop (*hint*: PAK-USA still in the works...).

Oh the wonders they could've done with a Time Mag ad and a 4 figure budget. :roll:

Another example of waste at PIA or as they say here - pork!
Agree with coyboy, the guy is not even wearing socks.
Although I am not a marketing person but all the empty space in the ad represents the spaciousness of the business class cabin. PIA could have used this opportunity to unveil new livery (if it is in the offing)

The ad may not be very impressive, but at least its a start. All we're doing is complaining and finding fault.

I was wondering the same thing, I think he isn't or it can be in skin colour as well. I personally think he is without socks.

No he isn't wearing any socks, but's why are you guys making an issue out of it. The add says "sit back and relax" and I have seen plenty of people who take of their socks off on long flights, both european and pakistani people. I see nothing wrong with it.

NO issue Adnan, we are just guessing if he is wearing or not, but If you say he isn't then he could have wore sandels!

Exactly, no one puts on shoes after taking of their socks, either he should have had sandels or those sock type things they give onboard.
