Sad too see a successful business ruined in just 2 years. You people have no Idea how much assets PIA has rite now (Within Pakistan and overall the world assets). If you count it will go like 7 to 8 billion USD. No one can pay such huge amount in Pakistan. If privatize it then do it in open market so we get the fair value of it.

@shakil: I'm also hardworking and honest. Make me the head! This is called nepotism. Was there an advertisement? What was the selection procedure?
