Most certainly and moreover ISB and LHE frequencies should be increasing gradually in 2013 as well.

Out of curiosity, where is the demand (for final destination) from Pakistan? Is it any particular markets or is it 50 seats here, 20 there...

This new flight allows perfect connections from DFW LAX IAD KWI DOH BAH. Please also note that the annual market size between DXB and KHI is 700,000 pax per year and EK lacked an afternoon flight from DXB to KHI as well as an early evening flight in the reverse direction for the O&D traffic. This gap has now been fitted in plus it relieves pressure off the 2230 KHI-DXB flight which is extremely popular for both O&D and connecting traffic via DXB for the 0200-0300 hub wave bank.

This is also EK's way of counter attacking TK on the LAX-KHI-LAX market sector as well as further taking away market share from CX.

The big markets from Pakistan is the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the UK.
Everyone of these is bigger than almost all the rest together.

Other markets but much smaller are Italy, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Canada and the US.

In regards to Karachi it differs slightly from many other Pakistani markets.
Its in the Sindh province. What used to be a more liberal part than the north of Pakistan but has seen an enormous influx of people from the north in search of a better life.
Most of its links aren't with emigrants to western countries but to the gulf.
The majority of Sindhi's that ventured abroad are thus found in the gulf and to a much lesser extent in Europe and North America.

With that said there are still more Sindhi people in the UK than Pakistanis in Canada to give an idea of the numbers were talking about.

However in regards to Sindhi, since many that arrived in the UK were original Hindus that left Karachi after the British and the following troubles, quite a few of them has less incentives to visit Karachi than say what a Pakistani whose origins are in Mirpur.

About time they increased flights to ISB and LHE... come in 2013 if this is true.

I don't know why they don't take over management of PIA?
