  • Karachi airport always disgusts me. Sand every where, no grass, and unfinished Chowkidar type rooms built right next to runways. it feels like landing in a improvished African countries, even they have better maintained airport areas.

    • Yes, as a Karachiite, I agree with you. Unfortunately, PPP and MQM both have destroyed this city.

      • bhai jaan….this is people of Karachi who ruined the whole thing……..PPPP aur MQM ki meya hasiayta hey…..

  • in the first video i thought it would touch the electric lines.
    WTF is this airport?

  • میں حیران ہو گیا ہوں، اتنی گرد. اسے گھاس لگا کر یا پودے لگا کر کم کیا جا سکتا ہے
