  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.

  2. Virgin Atlantic launching direct flights to UK from December 2020. Not only that, but the airline will be adding three routes, four weekly flights which is pretty cool to see.

  3. Nice to hear that virgin Atlanta announcing start flights for Pakistan wish you good luck and warm well come

  4. I am waiting, when they will start their Flights from Pakistan to The US and Canada via United Kingdom.

  5. They should start flying from Birmingham aswl
    Because there are lots of British Pakistanis living in west Midlands who are struggling to go to Heathrow or Manchester to get a direct flight to Pakistan

  6. Virgin Atlantic Flights arrival time in Islamabad earliest in the morning is very very dangerous for passengers travelling from Islamabad to rest of the cities and villages it’s dangerous for passengers going on by cars ,vans as there is no lights on the roads and lot of security checks ups are going on and keep asking to show passports and also misbehave with the passengers and keep asking for the money (bribe passengers)
    If
