There needs to be a lot of fixing done in Biman internally. However, 1st thing is move away from the airport-custom authorities. They are the ones who corrupted the system.

2nd stop this practice of loaning PMs from their depleted fleet.

None can not be done. Thus no change. It will not improve to 2.5 stars in near future.

You mean the onboard one? Thats only on the A380, and wasn't available in March. A380 only flies out of JFK. My mother and I flew out of IAD because we stopped by to visit my sisters who live in DC. Emirates uses 777-300 out of IAD.

If you meant their lounge, not sure if Econ class pax have access to it. Besides my mother was with me and she is ALLERGIC to smoke of any kind.

If everyone in the world was a hujur then the world would be a peaceful place.
Are you sure? Because there are many pseudo-hujurs who try their best to make the world a peace-less place.

I agree 100%. If it cannot be profitable, it has no business being in business.

First, Biman should not be owned by the government. The days of having flagship national career is over. Almost all flagship carriers, except the ones from the oil-rich nations, are struggling.

Second, I don't want the PM or the ministers fly on a plane owned by Biman, unless privatized. They make the life of the rest in the aircraft hell.

Third, Bureaucrats, officials, etc should fly. But, their flights cannot be free. These tickets have to be paid in cash. 10% discount is a good idea.

Fourth, employees and their family traveling on free tickets have to fly standby. Alternatively, they can be given good (but not too good) discounts if they want reserved seats. JFK-DAC flights were not profitable due to a large part because of these free tickets. And, family should mean immediate family (spouse, children, and parents).

First priority, Biman.

Third, if no Biman, other local airlines.
Fourth, if nothing, ONLY then foreign airlines.

It should start from President,PM, Ministers, Bureaucrats, Govt officials, basically anyone whose tickets are paid by Govt. Should also include national team like cricket team.
In return, Biman can give a 10% discount for this guaranteed target market.
This would:

a) Reduce govt expenditure
b) help keep money to ourselves
c) increase further revenue for Biman
d) when top brasses start to fly regularly, Biman's customer service would automatically improve.

There used to be a time when flying Biman was compulsory for civil servants and other Government or Military officials but it isn't now. However, many officers I know personally do take Biman if it suits their itinerary, especially if flying in Economy class.
