Employees per aircraft provides one measure of an airlines efficiency with respect to the average number of all its employees per unit of production. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the average Ratio for maximumefficiencyshould be 1:94 i.e. for every aircraft, the total number of employees should notexceed94. At present, out of PIAs 39 planes only 29 are operating which require 2,726 employees for maximum output efficiency and sustainability. However at present PIA has approximately 18,043 employees which gives a ratio of 1:622. The imminent end of PIA is understandable. Dr. Irfan Zafar Islamabad
