PIA 777: Map Of Pakistan On Tail?

Sun Jan 25, 2004 10:45 am

I just saw a news report here in Seattle about Paine Feild. In one of the clips they showed a PIA 777-200 doing it's taxi test and preparing for take-off.

I noticed that on the tail, there might have been a map of Pakistan on it. Instead of it saying PIA. Can anybody confirm that is what I really saw. It was a green map of Pakistan on a plain white tail.

I believe it was probabhly their "new' colours of a wavy green Pakistan flag diagonally painted up the tail.

A whole movement seems to be starting amongst people in Pakistan and Pakistani's abroad against the new livery, they're writing in to newspapers to management against it, I think this livery should be history in a few months.
.....up there with the best!
