[ except from full review here ]
Allama Iqbal terminal has an awesome architecture, announcements were calm and soft. You also hear Azaan (Muslim prayer call) 5 times a day in the terminal which felt really nice. Well once inside, I found filtered drinking water plant (You can get the disposable glass from CAA counter nearby). Also I found a slot for mobile charging and slept on floor waiting for my flight. PIA crew of my flight arrived a little later and were not happy to know that the flight was delayed. They sat there, we had some discussions, they were all nice and they left back after sometime. I contacted my friend on facebook (wifi is unlimited free and you can even watch videos)!! and he was outside and I went out again, same security officer at exit informed me that I cannot leave if I have got the boarding cards (I didn't) and I was allowed to go. Had some snacks with friend and lots of discussion and came back in to know that the flight was further delayed for one and half hours (its 11:30 and and we leave at 01:30) but check in was open now!
