PIA Query

Tue May 01, 2001 3:42 am

As you might have guessed from my previous posts, I am travelling to Karachi by PIA.

On the PIA website it states that it will be stopping over in ISLAMABAD.

PK 0718 MAN - ISB Dep 10.30 Arr 22.05

PK 0718 ISB - KHI Dep 23.35 Arr 01.30

Looking at the times does this mean that I will have to change aircraft or do I stay seated in the aircraft?

P.S. the flight numbers are the same

Chances are that u will remain onboard the same aircraft.......but like i've mentioned before ur dealing with pia so u can expect anything. This is technically an international flight--so technically they are not allowed to uplift any passengers from Isb--but what pia are notorious for is the following---they might uplift local passengers from Isb for karachi (in the event of a cancellation of another scheduled domsetic flight) and stick all the passengers on ur flight--now ur probably thinking what happens upon arrival at Karachi?? Well the friendly cabin crew make an announcement saying that all local passengers meaning the ones that boarded at isb should disembark from the front of the aircraft and all passengers that boarded from NY and MAnchester should disembark from the rear doors--that way the local passengers dont go thru immigration and customs---i know what ur thinking--what idiots?? but then again keep in mind--great people to fly with--LOL

ps keep an eye on ur belongings if that happens and dont exchange or accept anyfood or drink from a fellow passenger
