Pakistan’s federal cabinet once again delayed the decision on a long-awaited restructuring plan for Pakistan International Airlines. The airline’s Chief Executive Officer Air Marshal retired Arshad Mahmood Malik briefed the federal cabinet, about the finalised restructuring plan. But the cabinet has once again decided not to give a final go-ahead and referred the matter to Economics Coordination Committee to deliberate and decide how to make it happen. It is important to mention the fact that the government is delaying the decision for almost two years.
