PIA still not on Daylight Savings time

On a flight to Islamabad last week, I heard an American gentleman ask his Pakistani host if there was an hour’s difference between Karachi and Islamabad. One can forgive the poor chap for being confused. After all, PIA has not yet fixed its clocks and passengers can still see the old time on aircraft screens.

Is it really that difficult to make such a simple change? I should have thought it would only take a few seconds, if only someone at PIA was bothered to do it. But then the value of time has never been one of PIA’s strong points. I guess in the tagline – PIA & Pakistan – Cultural Unity in Diversity – they didn’t commit to unity of time.

    Not to blame just PIA, even Emirates didnt skew their clocks one hour ahead on June 1st.

    Hey but PIA is our national airline. PIA still hasn’t taken care of this. One of my colleagues take on this was that they don’t know how. Another friend told me that if he wants to set the date on his computer, he needs to click on Dhaka time to get the time correct because of our move toward DST.

    you are right, they just need to adjust the time zone to GMT+6 i.e. Dhaka Time zone
