Hmm they're changing it again?! Mind you... that new version looks good.

"World tails" would appear to have failed one more time...

Yes, pity about that; I thought it looked great - certainly better than the rather cheap looking painting of the Pakistani flag on the tail (not, I hasten to add, that there's anything wrong with the Pakistani flag; it's just that it looked like a very cheap job).

Why don't they include the full word "Pakistan" again? Many people have no idea what PIA stands for.

It was announced last year that the colourful tails were only ever intended to be short lived adverts for the respective regions of Pakistan. A310 AP-BEB had it's special tail repainted with the standard flag shortly after.

I agree! I like the provincial tails they seem to suit the PK colours, always nice seeing them at MAN. Any news on PK's planned a/c orders?

...none yet. The A310 serves an important part in PK's fleet. It's the right-sized plane for many of PK's routes. That being said, the B788 would probably be the right-sized replacement.

Well, PIA needs to replace the B733 fleet as soon as possible.
A310s are not the issue for the next 5 years at least, even B743s would continue till 2014 as decided in business plan.

In my opinion PIA should opt for B788 in replacement of A310 & B748 in replacement of B743.

True, true, but I was only commenting based on the subject of the A310's...

PK owns 6/12 A310's and are directly leasing from Airbus the other 6.

Quoting zainmax (Reply 16):

I think the B748I would be just too big. Even PK's "trunk routes" doesn't warrant a B747. PK can "wet lease" during the Hajj season. B77W's are the perfect large planes for PK....

I prefer the Pashminaus tails instead..

I go that as well....nice to see PK flying the route.....too bad the M.E. carriers have driven out carriers such a LH out of the market... 

I would like to see more European carriers back in Pakistan. BA should restart KHI and especially ISB as well.
