The EU has warned Pakistan International Airlines and the Pakistan CAA that they have two months to sort out some serious deficiencies in their maintenance and supervisory regimes or risk a ban being imposed on flights by Pakistani aircraft to Europe.
This is nothing to worry about, according to PIA. Their spokesman. Tahir Khalique, assured The Nation newspaper that Europe was annoyed about an impending order with Boeing for two 777′s and was trying to put pressure on PIA to buy European. According to The Nation, Mr Khalique said “negotiations are also underway to purchase five Airbus aircraft which will end the pressure automatically.”
If PIA really believes that, or is silly enough to expect others to believe it, there is little hope for them.
