The royal wedding happened this weekend and people all over the world cannot stop swooning over the fairytale nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Cashing on this historic moment is our national aviation service, Pakistani International Airline (PIA). The carrier has now extended an invitation to the new couple in town to visit the Northern Areas of the nation.
Giving a throwback to the time Lady Diana came to Pakistan, PIA tweeted that it would be super cool if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex toured our breath-taking destinations.
We watched the #RoyalWeddding & remembered #PrincessDiana & her trip to the northern areas of Pakistan, & we thought how wonderful it would be for the newly weds to visit our northern splendours as well! So #PrinceHarry & #PrincessMeghan, we are ready, just let us know when! #PIA pic.twitter.com/2aVtnqxeZ4

Sadly, PIA’s move backfired!
While the aviation service tweeted this thinking it is a smart strategy, Twitterverse is having a field day trolling the living daylights out of PIA.
Poor PIA didn’t see this coming!
Apna haal dekho or apni batien dekho. Sharam ani chahye PIA walun ko

The sweet gesture has clearly turned sour for the airline.
Yeah I think it's safe to say they are not coming …hold your markhor

People are seizing the chance to vent out against the remorseful service.
Sorry to say, But that time PIA was the leader, but now PIA is looser. People wants to that PIA again. Please Learn from Emirates

Jo Baat Hai!
Pehlay apnay logon ko tu time per le Ghar jaoo.
Expired Khan na Khilao.
Arrogant aur Badtameez staff khatam Karo

Its dangerous to travel by PIA with fake degree holder pilots/ crew and hundreds of staff.

The aviation brand vies hard to redeem itself in the eyes of its customers. However, its meager service adds to the growing backlash.
