On one hand, the government bemoans PIA’s financial deficit while on the other it is taking measures beyond comprehension. Instead of reconciling protesting employees, it appointed a foreigner as the COO at Rs 2.5 million monthly salary.
The government tasked Hayden Berg to transform PIA into a profitable entity. A spokesperson for the national airliner, Danial Gillani confirmed the appointment of Berg.
He said that the PIA administration must have found the appointment worthwhile.
