Winglets747, that might be the case if you book on travelocity.com or expedia, however if you contact PIA directly, they offer quite a low fare, here they have a office in NYC, i plan on flying them to MAN on buisness+ its only running me 915 dollars during X-mas time. Economy is usually around 400! Try contacting the booking office they can help you out
A few times when going to England I've looked into flying PIA on JFK-MAN, but their price is usually at least twice as much as others (and sometimes more expensive than going all the way to Pakistan).
That's because you have to go into the hood and speak da lingo.
I used to work in a travel agent in the UK right in the area known locally as "The Khyber Pass". We used the same consolidators that the local ethnic agents used, but could never match their price, until we hired a Pakistani guy one day a week.
