  1. MY SUGGESTION IS, IF YOU GO AHEAD WITH YOUR PASSENGERS FLIGHTS TO UNITED STATES, LIKE CHICAGO, NEW YORK, YOU CAN BE THE BEST MAKING BUSINESS AIRLINE IN THIS SECTOR. WISH YOU A GOOD LUCK.

    • My request is to start flights from KARACHI jinah international airport to Heathrow airport…as thousands of students fly through connections..which is very tiring process…

      • Dear Dr. Tahira,
        I wish for the same as well, but Karachi being treated by all political parties like an orphan city and/or it’s not part of Pakistan. So I don’t expect anything positive from any political party (specially PPP= Pakistan pimp party).
        Until & unless Karachi city goes back to her original status as under the federal administration status or a separate province, I don’t expect any progress in Karachi.
        Having said that, Karachi loves all the races, casts & religions in Pakistan and it’s for every Pakistani national, but no one loves, respect & recognise Karachi as a commercial capital and bloodline for whole Pakistan. All political parties must think about Karachi or prepare for another episode like a 1971.
