Which reason? I think that is only for the security of the flight.

KU suspended service to Islamabad last week, so I guess this was expected, also the CAA in Pakistan are now tracking the airspace on an hourly basis, and the Pakistani Govt. has allowed the U.S use of two aiports in the towns of Jacobabad in Sindh province and Pasni in Balochistan province, so theres bound to be more risks involved Sad
.....up there with the best!

Yes i would think so too that KU is leaving just for safety reasons.....God forbid if ever a Gulf carrier were to quit KHI for good then that would be its darkest hour......Oman quit some time back but i dont expect any other airline from the Gulf to do that.
