In February 2022, Pakistani airlines including PIA, Serene Air and Air Sial had sought clarification from then Pakistan Government on Fly Jinnah (FJ).

1Rs for PIA also means 500 billion RUPEES in loans and liabilities.

What a shame, it looks like they've walked away from the Pakistani market, but I do hope I am proven wrong.

Possible that the aircraft are covering for excess demand for airarabia while approvals come through. Unlike PIA, I don’t think they’d let aircraft sit idle for months.
