The old PIA colors and the bold "PIA" on that tail were stunning, all they needed to do to it was modify it and update it a little and it would have looked even better, not a radical overhaul as they did.
Hopefully if they do decide to revise the scheme it will be a bit more colorful.

Quoting KL808 (Reply 5): Their old scheme was way better, the green belly looked stunning.
Exactly. They should go back to that nicer green first of all and get rid of that sand color too, please.
Quoting KL808 (Reply 5): How can anybody mistake your brand when you have a green tail and the PIA letters on. I miss those days. Now, you have to look at a small flag that you can barely see from a few meters/feet away.
Looks like a flag of a pirate ship one sees in the movies.. that's how ugly that design is (besides not even been the same green as the real Pakistani flag)
Quoting Planemannyc (Reply 6): Its a very bad and cheap knock-off of El Al's color scheme. There is no real "excitement" to the livery with a white/brown fuselage and flag.
From a design standpoint, it's pretty much impossible to design an uglier look than this.
El Als livery is also a downgrade from their previous corporate look but at least the tail looks proper. No doubt whoever 'designed' this copied it and had the brilliant idea of adding that boring sand color Saudia Arabian uses.
Quoting LH455 (Reply 12): They should take a page out of SriLankan's book ... tho the bird looks like it's hardly able to stay airborne.
Exactly, that desinflated peacock on drugs that looks like a kid's ballon toy is another horrible design. Stupid livery that replaced yet another very classy, well-designed corporate image just because some marketing guru nerd thought "maybe it isn't modern enough".
GARPDs tail design is an improvement as is this one which flows well and almost saves this ugly design, but again, that's impossible.
LEsson of the day is? Spend a few $ on a corporate image that will look good so that people wont get tired of ir in 2 years. ALso this new crop of marketing guru nerds should be required to at least get a minor in arts.
The size of the underlined is argued by representatives of two countries (both sides claim the full territory), though one part is is under full Pakistani administration and hence belongs to Pakistan. (I tried to formulate this as neutral as I can, as I am not part of this conflict and take distance and condemn the fight)
Pakistan has always had 4 provinces only. Azad Kashmir has been given the status of a State according to the UN resolution. It has its own government and prime minister umbrellaed by the Federal government. A citizen of Azad Kashmir can not vote in the Pakistan general elections.
