Last evening I saw a PIA 742 doing a high speed climb en route to Jeddah, its a daily service and I have seen it uncountable times in many of which the climb has been so slow and loud, like the aircraft is straining to stay airborne, rather scary. So why was this plane going really fast?

Take off/climb speeds vary on all a/c for a number of reasons such as :-
take off weight of the aircraft, temperature, pressure, altitude of airport above sea level, weather, runway contamination, obstacles such as mountains/cranes etc, any restrictions on the a/c due to tech problems...the list goes on.
