Last week, Malaysian authorities seized a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Boeing 777 over being a defaulter of the lease payment.

According to details, the plane was taken into custody on a court’s order at Kuala Lumpur airport with passengers on board.

In a turn of events, the company owner and director who leased the plane to PIA turn out to be Indian nationals with an office in Dubai.

Following this, the Federal Minister for Aviation, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, claimed that PIA acquired the plane on an expensive lease during the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) term in 2016.

Meanwhile, an old tweet of the Vice President of the PML-N, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, has been widely shared on social media.

She tweeted, “New leased PIA planes. A day not far when PIA will be at par with the world’s finest airlines. That’s Nawaz Sharif.”

  • The question is when whole airline industry is removing staff and giving back aircraft why PIA kept this aircraft? it is fine if you can’t pay back the lease but it should had been returned earlier. There were many other aircrafts too which could be used instead of this. This is all done to get IK humiliated I do not see any other reason behind this.
