Would be embarrassing for Pakistan if Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is mentioned or thanked for providing aircraft in movie closing credits.

100% correct. 250K Euro is nothing for the shame PIA will be getting for this stunt.

Looks like the PIA management considered this A310 as their personal property and made it available for movie shooting in Malta and then sent it to Leipzig Halle Airport for display at some museum without following proper procedures & rules. Were these decisions about the aircraft approved by PIA Board of Directors? Who collected payments for sending the aircraft to Malta on rent for movie shooting and then to Leipzig for museum display?

And, above all, who decided the fate of this aircraft and sent it abroad before the opening & evaluation of bids for its sale in proper & transparent manner?

Ummm, I hate to comment, but without these stunts ONE cannot fulfill his dreams, without enough hype, to privatize the airline like scrap and fill his own pockets and above all this happens when you destroy Institutions and appoint family members in them...

Could be - I also can only imagine that it will remain at Leipzig Airport because I don't know any Aviation Museum near Leipzig.
The two larger Aviation Museums in Germany I remember are in Sinsheim (where a Concorde stands) and in Speyer (where a LH 747 stands)

By the way here is a Video of AP-BEQ Landing at LEJ
