Give credit to
EX DMD ENGG
AND

For selecting such a third class model B/C seat.

Just for commision.

And now we are looking to replace entire 777 fleet B/C seats.

Another opportunity for Great People for Great Commision.

No I disagree with you. These are the same seats as etihad. I have travelled with etihad many time on their business class. Also emirates. They both are really comfortable.Agar commission hai but still comfort bhi hai so always look at the positive side :-)

While selecting any model of business class seat.
Two things should be kept in mind.
A.comfort for passenger.
B.Maintenance friendly.
Thanks.

Mr. Shujaat Azeem's reply:

Dear shehryar sb,AA.

First of all I on behalf of PIA want to thank you for being a regular customer of our national Carrier and giving us the valuable feed back for PIA to improve its services.

You would be glad to know that Prime Minister gave the approval new flat bed seats on all 11 777.These seats are from sogerma ( France) and the contract was signed some time back.inshallah the new seats would be installed in phases as and when the aircraft go in for C check and the seats are available to be installed.kindly bear with us for a few months.Also you would be glad to know that on these aircraft we would have the latest in flight entertainment with wi if and Internet.

Regards and best wishes,

Capt Shujaat Azeem

The bread and butter of PIA is its economy class.

Most people who can afford business class tickets do not fly PIA.

PIA needs to upgrade its economy class entertainment system and bathrooms.

If you're not gonna upgrade they're never going to fly. You can't just give up on Business class passengers. If Business class is improved, I'm sure no one would want to fly the ME3 via the ME and add 7 hrs or so into their journey.

One business class passenger pays about twice the economy fare.
