GLA is being resumed under poitical pressure on PM's directive thanks to the dumb immigrant community who met him and asked him to do this, and are probably too complexed to travel on foreign carriers because they cant throw their weight around, with issues such as excess bagge and bossing the vrew.

Can you just fly to Manchester or Shannon or Barcelona and get off? Or do you have to go to Pakistan?

There is very little to no transit action in KHI as you probably know. Infact its so novel that im actually curious as to what your friends routing is that there was a need to transit via KHI. If he is connecting from EK to TG that means hes arriving from DXB and going onto BKK (TG flies to MCT from KHI too but i doubt he would go DXB-MCT this way). Howcome he wouldnt get onto a TG flight from DXB? One possibility could be to take advantage of much lower J class fares from KHI.
Coming to your specific question,there is a small transit lounge at KHI airport and over the years i have seen people there ocassionaly. The lounge is called "transit lounge" and it is located on the departures level. Logistically speaking if your friend has a separate ticket for his TG flight,it would mean he will need to go to the TG desk (to acquire his boarding pass) which is at the entrance of departures - the immigration checks are between this point and the transit lounge. Im thinking how will he make his way to the TG desk as an arriving pax with no visa.
By the way what is the nationality of the friend - if not too much hassle i would suggest he may just get a visa to avoid any hassle at the airport OR at the very least call the local TG office in Karachi and speak to a senior person there and explain his circumstances. Perhaps TG can send a ground staff to fetch him from his arriving EK flight and liase with the immigration folks.
Tell him try calling +9221 32788000 and see what they say. Do keep us posted - i would be very curious how it shapes up.

= Thanks for your help. I have already advised him of this. But he is a crazy airline guy who has been to over 170 countries and is flying the last Eritrean Airlines flight to KHI and then connecting on to Thai for BKK. So, is there not a transfer desk @ KHI?
Oh the best part, he is going to be on an Indian passport ...

Was it the only U.S. route through FRA back then and did it go to JFK?
|Quoting 777way (Reply 42):|
Yes JFK was their only US destination till 1997 when they started ORD and IAD.
JFK was also linked via Amsterdam, Istanbul, Cairo and Damascus I think Rome and Athens too later on, not sure but Dubai might have been connected to JFK for a short while., London too in the 60s what about Birmingham? it also had a no traffic right connection to Toronto.
