I landed at ISB on Monday and after the joys of J class on BA, I had to take PIA 737 to Lahore. God only knows what would have happened if there had been an emergency as the plane was in a complete mess. Torn seat covers, non folding food trays, bad lighting, dodgy airconditioning and as far as P/A's there was more emphais on reciting the Quran than on safety as recorded announcements started willy nilly during the (thankfully) short flight. The landing was the worst I have encountered as the plane bumped and rolled all over the place before Captain Fantastic decided he had scared us enough and instead attempted to tame the beast by turning it on a sixpence!! Nothing demonstrates more the state of our nation today

I am taking the motorway back to ISB. Cheaper and safer...
