  • As I understand it, the insurance payout goes to the company that owned the aircraft and leased it to PIA, and does not go to PIA.
    A fact that has been conveniantly overlooked by the writer, and which, therefore, creates the mistaken impression that PIA stood to benefit.

  • The aircraft insurance amount will go to the owner, not PIA as this was a leased aircraft.

    PIA also maintain passenger insurance policy and every deceased passenger’s closed one will get Rs. 5 Million, out of which Rs. 1 Million had already been paid to the closed ones of identified passengers.

  • Sell PIA.
    Give the affected and deceased more than the mere 10 lac approved.
    Use the rest to make loan payments.
    We dont need PIA anymore.
