hello abd aziz
yes PIA crew gets 24-48 hour slip patterns at DXB but most of the flights are up an down sectors
monday night pk 213 khi-dxb is a 48 hour layover and the crew returns to khi on wed morning. they probably stay at intercontinental ( cockpit crew) and the cabin crew stays at Avari in Dubai or holiday inn some 3-4 star place. rest of th e lhi-dxb and isb-dxb s mostly up an down i.e th samecrew brings the flight back in the evening . I guess from lahore the slip pattern begins on fri-sat flights

pk757 thanks for ur reply... but the flights from PAK to DXB is very short and they should not stay at all.
Saudi Airlines pilots don't have any stay at DXB even is the do 2 and half hour flight from JED to DXB they have to return back on the same day.

Thats mean PIA is doing extra spending on their pilots.
