Inaugurating w/ancient aircraft A310!!! What an irony.

Ironic that the comment should come from someone in Puerto Rico, how much do you know about PIA, Leeds/Bradford and the market segment being catered to by this servcie, or Pakistan and Pakistani ethnic niche market attitudes.

I dont know anything about your place so I wouldnt dare comment on anything there without relevant knowledge of it.

I hope PK does well on this route; the potential is certainly there, because there is a very strong Asian population in the Leeds area (among others).

PIA did have its A310s banned from Europe for a while (about 2 years ago, I think), but this has been overcome. The A310 is a fine aircraft and it's a good aircraft for some of the "thin" routes PK flies. Maybe PK will use it on other regional UK routes - Luton, perhaps?

2 years ago? It was only earlier this year actually, or possibly the end of last year. Either way, quite recent...!


Also, has there actually been an official announcement on this route?

Whilst I applaud PIA for opening up a route which will pay dividends to them, I don't think LBA have truly thought about the implications.

I had to pick up clients who were coming in from AMS last Wednesday at 21:00 and the place was in a complete state of anarchy! With our rediculous laws stating you cant drop off anymore, it took 20 minutes to get into the car park, where there were hundreds of people milling around, abandoned cars everywhere!

When I eventually got near the airport entrance, you couldn't move for families seeing off relatives, it was utter madness. I know the Asian population love seeing their families off and this works at MAN where there is more room, but at Leeds the whole place grinds to a halt!

Overall, I think it will be detrimental to their everyday business, and as my client said 'next time we'll go to Manchester... You told us this was a quiet airport and no hassle to transit through!'

Their words, not mine!

Well things are changing at LBA, they have closed the Yorkshire executive car park which is the nearest one to the terminal to improve and expand the 'drop off' area and car parks.

£20 million terminal extention next year and a further £40 million on a new runway surface, shops and facilities. Give it time and LBA will be up to standard.
