    Morons, before you create click bait pages, learn the process. All flights to Northern Areas are subject to weather and backlog. Those idiotic ministers know that. Travel by road, if plane is not avialable

      Lol. You know nothing about PIA, they also cancel if they have to route this plane to somewhere else. This is because they have grounded many planes in the last few years

        Other airlines do that too, its no surprise, but in northern areas it is different.
