Biman on a nosedive again

Biman is in trouble since long. Even the pilots feel that the aged crafts are not flightworthy.

We have been hearing about massive corruption by ex-prime minister Khaleda Zia's brother Shamim Iskander. He is said to control pilots of Biman Bangladesh airline and have strong influence on the entire civil aviation ministry. He was instrumental in leasing aircrafts and the scam was that the yearly expenditure was more than the cost of a second-hand aircraft. I hope Biman is rescued from the down slide soon.
