  • This is called “penny wise and pound foolish”

    Cutting allowances of lower staff and enjoying big perks as officers.

    It is a Typical anti-civilian move by non-civilians sitting at the helm of affairs at PIA.

  • It’s not a good HR practice to cut compensation of employees. Rather non-development expenses, extra travelling costs of executives, non-productive training costs, etc. Should be reduced. On the other side aggressive revenue targets should be given. Loss of Rs. 32b cannot be covered in one year. It should spread over 3-4 years.

  • PIA is a constant drain on national resources and does not even serve 1% of the population. The government must immediately dismantle this “white elephant” as PIA has brought us nothing but financial misery and shame. It’s staff and officials need to return the public money back into the national exchequer.
