Hummmmmm.... I can't speak for ORD, but EK and the coming QR service will likely lay waste to anything that PK can offer. While I am skeptical, they are more than welcome to try. As I always say. "Houston can't have too many airlines, especially int'l carriers"

The reason why this flight didn't work to IAH in the first place was that it was not N/S....so bringing back a similar type of flight will only fail again.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

They actually had full freedom rights to do so..they just marketed it poorly.. yes

Actually, PK would do well if they offer the services nonstop....the problem is, with a stop in MAN, its no longer competitive with EK or EY.

Even with EK/EY offering Pakistan-DXB/AUH-YYZ services, PK does well with its Pakistan-YYZ services.

Also, neither EK or EY have announced ORD anytime soon, so if PK can get going again, they just might be able to get a decent market share.

PK had just the 5 5th freedom rights per week to operate out of MAN. JFK was the one that had the most (at least 3). Never saw that IAH had one as I believed ORD had at least 1 per week, though IAH did have a smattering of passengers so that too must have had 1 per week. Perhaps they just floated the 5 rights across those routes each week so it was pot luck if you could fly the pond with them if originating in MAN!

The PIA Billboard near O'hare did mention service to MAN.

So would it be Pakistan-ORD nonstop and then continue onto IAH or would they bring back Pakistan-MAN-IAH? Also ISB or LHE?

Was that the case? I always thought that they didn't get 5th as well as marketing it poorly.

I'm not so sure how the setup was (though I do have the documents somewhere). I did know of a number of people who flew IAH-MAN...

My family flew ORD-MAN a few times on PK...the price/service was simply unbeatable.

 checkmark ...me too...that being said, its no big deal for me as my wife and I fly PK out of LHR/MAN to Pakistan.

I think it would be the former....I don't expect to see Pakistan-MAN-IAH...I would assume it would probably be ISB one of the day(s) and LHE another day(s) with the terminator flight at KHI.

They did have 5th freedom rights....I should know, my family flew it a number of times... Wink

I see my confusion (I think) ... I know they did IAH-MAN-LHE/ISB/KHI, but were they able to sell tickets for the IAH-MAN-IAH portion?    I know a Pakistan-ORD-IAH will definitely do poorly since any tag on to IAH from other US airports, other than BA, have done poorly such as CI and GF.

Chicago AND Houston? Hmmmm..... (soon) two very LARGE Star Alliance hubs! Any chance that PIA is trying to wiggle its way into *A?  scratchchin  They do already code share with Thai and Turkish!

I wonder if their recent issues with a/c banned in the EU would have any bearing on their entrance/eligibility to enter *A?  alert
