You never hear a joke that starts off, "So I get on a Pakistani airline and I am real worried about my luggage meeting me at the airport."

term would be "old" not "young", 'cause if these aircraft were 2 to 4 years old then term "young" would be fine but age of 2 aircraft are 16.3 years old each and 1 as 22.9 years old,  according to 2 aircraft history its also flown by air nigeria in africa one of the poorest sh-ittiest places on earth and third one by air jordon since 2009 which is 22.9 years old, so maintenance history of each aircraft from safety point of view would be of great concern, i would rather take pak railway than fly in these flying coffins.

well this is you and me who do some research and come to some conclusion if its worth a risk to fly or not to fly, but there is endless supply of dumb people in pakistan who will gladly risk their life and their family's life  without any second thought by flying in these flying coffins.

It was evident that Mr. Gold was robbing PIA systematically to build an airline of his own. No wonder PIA sunk to its lowest depths in recent years.

Age of an aircraft is hardly a determinant of its fitness for flying which is determined by regular inspections. If an aircraft clears the inspection and is deemed airworthy as well as compliant with civil aviation regulations, it doesn't matter if the aircraft is brand new or decades old.

There is also the thing called possibility of breakdown. It is obviously higher in old rusty machinery and even if the old machine passes all the tests, the possibility is still much more than that of a new one.

Come on u dumbheads! American Airline, one of the largest and considered safe airline, is still operating planes that are more 28 years old. We should appreciate and welcome new airlines in Pakistan to increase quality services in airline industry.
