I think it's enough now, Pakistan needs to actively and aggressively pursue PIA flight issue with UK authorities.

To begin with or in first phase, one daily flight from PK-UK should chalk out.

Looks like BA continuing LHR ISB flights and not switching back to LGW for W22/23...... hopefully remaining permanently at LHR.
