I've never seen flights sub £300 to Pakistan - Islamabad so this is just a heads up. If you go via Skyscanner flights show up for £300 with Shaheen Airlines for various dates in May. Proceed From Skyscanner to book but may sure you pay in Pakistan Rupees PAK and it converts to under £300. I have friends heading to Pakistan for a wedding in May and they paid significantly more for flights. 32k of hold luggage included and 7kg hand luggage.

Wow, can they do that? Turn someone away who has booked months in advance with a ticket? That's so bad!!!
thnx for sharing op.
I am sure Pakistan is a fascinating place to visit, but just be aware:

I don't think anybody goes to Pakistan for tourism..LOL



I was more thinking of those travelling to see friends/family. I have a few friends that go frequently throughout the year to see family.

​All airlines over book and so do hotels on the basis that a % people will cancel/not turn up. That's how airlines/ hotels try to achieve max capacity / occupancy

​Pakistanis can. you think that's bad ? I've seen a car crash people still alive yet onlookers rushing to take what they can of the dead and alive persons and you're talking about double booking. it's a shame to MANKIND.

I hope that in the few years since that happened they have improved. They are never going to be popular treating customers like that! I've never heard of the airline, it seems to be popular within Pakistan.

I'm just commenting about the deal and the posters comments about the way his friends were treated, nothing more. There are millions of other things worse than being turned away for a flight but this is a deal blog.
Shaheen airlines.... No thank you, probably never properly maintained like most Pakistani airlines!

Do they?
I have never been refused a seat on any plane or a room in any hotel that I had a reservation for.
They don't need to overbook because you've paid for the ticket and you lose your money if you don't turn up.
If I remember correctly PIA refund £60 on a £500+ ticket for a no show

Booked well in advance for mother's funeral??
If you want to sacrifice all your time for money saved from cheap flight and unreliable airline then strongly recommended.
they are bot reliable please remember your seats coming back may be not guranteed and not only that you will loose your money as my bro was going to fly with them and then changed his mind
Nice, ideal start to my tour of troubled parts of the world.

(Yes, get the train to Manchester...)

I have made a mistake
It was air blue and not Shaheen airlines that my friend and many others had trouble with.
I apologize for the mistake and will delete the posts.
Cracking deal. I'm there right now for a shoot and our flights were about 450£ so bargain

You think so? … You think so? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/asia/pakistan/galleries/26-beautiful-photos-you-wont-believe-were-taken-in-Pakistan/



True, but then there are no people in these photos (except the indigenous Kalash, who look lovely despite the persecution).

One way be betta...

OHH NO HE DIDNT
I wouldn't say it's a **** hole like some. But I suppose it doesn't help with how things are around this part of the world. What I mean to say it doesn't get the best publicity.
And re take that pic when people have decided to build diy shacks all along the bank and chuck all there crap in the water. See how nice it looks then.
Shaheen airlines are not the national flag carrier and as such offer a well serviced for profit service. There will be a stop over which may be prolonged so be advise the journey can be linger than advertised. And in flight entertainment will be lacking, I will.aslo point out there demostic flight are dry so there may be no consumption of alcohol on board.
I travel to pakistan regularly for work and can say Islamabad and neighbouring rawalpindi are amazing cities and well worth a visit. You will need to apply for a visa before going if you don't have a Pakistani passport. Thanks OP great deal

What an odd report; detailed listing of places not to visit, and quite specific numbers of visitors, yet they say only that 'most' are trouble free.
What is 'most'? 51%, 75%, 99%???

Yes most airlines do, they have an overbooking % based on historic no show rates. I worked in revenue management for a British airline in the past.
seems bizarre that Pakistan would soon be a less enticing place to visit than Iran...
Typical media overhyping it as usual and people believing it. Safer than living in most of the ghetto places in england
I dont blame the government advisory websites though.
Got to start from somewhere when ur planning to invade a country and rob it blind like iraq....

​I read the same thing regarding over booking on an airlines T&Cs a few years ago. Can't remember which airline it was, but it prompted me to get travel insurance.

Yup blah blah blah blah.
Pakistan is truly amazing country with amazing people, **** happens everywhere these days so one should not make up their mind to turn their selves back. May b in few years time China-Pakistan economic corridor makes "Gawadar Port" better place than Dubai or GCC. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0e/Gwadar_Port.jpg

But it is true just because it hasnt happened to you. I have worked for a hotel chain and happened to us at least 3-4-5 times per month. People were furious as they had come from the airport and they were tired and was no room for them however they were rebooked into another hotel ( in better case) but some wanted our particular hotel as it is in Central London

Seems like other flights (oman, ethihad, pia) are for nearly same price as well....

Maybe someone can change the description
good deal. but I heatd they're offering a 60kg baggage allowance at the moment; which won't be sufficient :D. first fight tomorrow, w planning on travelling over easter but search didn't show on Skyscanner at the time.
On a scale of 1 to 10, what are the chances of ending up dressed in an orange boiler suit?

Are these the planes with outside toilets??
