I also read this post in the other forum. I disagree and think that PIA will be allowed nonstop flights to the US. Other carriers from "sensitive areas" like KU
etc already fly nonstop to the US and their flights haven't even been cancelled like AF
. I also think there's enoguh demand from several US cities to Pakistan and they will also carry connecting traffic to other parts of that region.
Also, the -200LR can be used to carry more payload than the -200ER but used on similiar routes as the -200ER.
I'm a bit surprised that they took out the crew rest facility; maybe this is temporary or they didn't want the extra weight that it adds to the aircraft ?
