I'm sorry, ma'am, I don't work for the airline.

I agree with you Jacobin777. The 772LR would look especially nice with the blue tail. Big grin

I do not like the new PIA tails, they should have kept the previous design with the Pakistan flag on the tail which looks good.

PIA should have stuck to this, it would have been better on a 743 than 742.

Absolutely agree. I always admired the old livery. One could recognize the green tail from far away. There aren't too many airlines around with green color.

If PIA wants to keep the flag tail, then at least have some color background. One suggestion is to have a light color grape-vine background they used to have some years back.

Good to see PIA experimenting with liveries. I think all airlines should come up with occasional special liveries coinciding with events (e.g. FIFA World Cup, Cricket World Cup, etc)

I agree with you. I liked the flag much better than these new tails, they're basically a remix of the BA world tails which I didn't care much for.

I have to disagree with you, Ordryan....

Although there is similarity to the BA "world tails", the difference is in the fact that the unique designs are local in origin, rather than random influenced "world art".

I have to wonder if the flag tailed variation of the current scheme was a stop-gap for PIA while they were waiting for the final art work to be produced?

I notice that at the top of the tails there is the PIA script, wouldn't that be considered more traditional than the PIA letters?

To appease everyone, could the top of the new tail (from the white band up) be painted the distintive green, with the script in white? or perhaps script on one side, letters on the other? ....Just a thought...

I mean, I don't hate these tails, I just thought the flag looked really stylish. I'm sure I'll get used to them.
