Asad Umar thinks PIA is a ‘black hole’

December 24, 2018
Passengers claim PIA is cancelling confirmed tickets



Finance Minister Asad Umar was at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport when people saw him and complained to him about the mismanagement of Pakistan International Airline.

In a viral video, Umar can be seen speaking to a PIA official on the phone. He mentioned the passengers' complaint that the airline is cancelling confirmed tickets. “This is what I told your air marshal [PIA CEO],” said Umar, adding that “I released Rs17billion last month and I told them I am sinking this into a black hole.”

For God's sake, get somebody senior here and tell somebody to deal with it, the federal minister asked the official to resolve the matter.

    PIA is white elephant and so should be dumped as soon as possible. We have many other white elephants like steel mill, railway, K electric, etc.

    Why is this Government not dis investing the PIA? Previous Governments had employed their kith and kin in PIA. Even the salaries of Dubai based personal guards of these politicians were paid by the PIA.

    Pls ask Emirates to coach PIA management, as Emirates is succefull after sincere PIA staff trained Emirates staff . Appears PIA corruption overstuffing , no one is willing to take responsibility , Sure none of PIA staff. Have any face value. Unable to review their real face in mirror . In case if view they will be afraid from horrible face image. If they have any remaining shame .
