Other than this PIA also clarified its position on a report posted by Dawn called ‘PIA’s freefall’. PIA clarified that the current position of the airline is quite promising. Also, there has been no removal of employees by Chairman Muhammad Irfan Elahi. The airline further clarified that the removal of Raheel Ahmed former head of HR was a decision taken by PIA management. The reason was his lack of performance.

PIA concluded, “The clarification states that with a new world-class management team at the helm and a commercially focused new board of directors, PIA has begun serious efforts to turn around its performance and return to profitability. The business plan has examined and analyzed rigorously each route PIA has been operating or should operate based on its current and future potential. Given the PIA`s cash flow constraints, a key to turning PIA around is to stop the heavy bleeding on an urgent basis. The suspension of the New York route, which could not be turned around to profits in a short period of time, achieves just that.”
