The grounded 777-300ERs and 777-200ERs need to be renovated brought back to service for the Hajj flights

PIA will need 7 flights a day of the 777 aircraft to complete this task in 1 month.

Even if BGL is damaged beyond repair how about using its parts to bring back BHW , BID and BMG back to service.

Plus convert three 777s to all economy that will add an extra 35 seats, removing the 35 club class seats and installing 72 economy seats in its place.

Thank you Abbas for starting this thread, Seems like for this year Hajj: authorities have allowed 50 percent Quota for every country what it used to be Pre-Covid time.

For e.g. Approx 80K pilgrims are allowed for this year 2022 compare to approx. 160K pilgrims during the year 2019.
Fortune favours brave.

Saudi officials visited Lahore Airport to review arrangements for 'Makkah Route' planned for Hajj flights to be operated from the airport.

Under this initiative intending pilgrims will undergo Saudi immigration and customs clearance at Lahore airport.

In 2019, Islamabad Airport became the first Pakistani airport where "Makkah Route" initiative was introduced for Hajj flights.

Why not from Quetta? Why 5 out of 8 cities are from Punjab? The Punjabi elite is still not ready to consider areas outside Punjab as part of Pakistan.
Hope the private carriers provide direct hajj flights from Quetta
