One of PK's Boeing 777-240LR's used last week on the Transit flight they offer. Only four years old i believe, so relatively young, especially compared to rest of their fleet.

I see that PIA are to replace some of the Boeing 777's aircraft that currently operate on the PIA701/702 Manchester to Islamabad route in March 2011 and recommence Boeing 747-300 operations agian to Europe.

Dont know the reasons as yet. Anyone know anymore on this?

PIA's Manchester-Islamabad service is going to be reduced from the current 4 x weekly B777-200 to just 3x weekly from next month.

PIA are reportedly looking at running a 2 weekly LHE-MAN-LAX-MAN-LHE with B77W's from next year.

This will only happen once the next batch of B777's arrive, and being PIA is very subject to change.

Hi guys I have just been on pia's website and realised that Houston has showed up in its booking engine even though they don't operate it. It's interesting as people have been saying tags pia are looking into a long haul route via manchester...
Seems interesting guys and one to watch out for..... :dirol:

There are actually several US destinations on the PIA site as they codeshare beyond JFK.

A post on the BHX PIA thread about reductions prompted me to look at the PIA site for MAN flights.

It seems MAN-ISB now has 5 weekly flights, up from 4 weekly with the introduction of a Saturday flight. MAN has, for a long time, not had a Saturday flight, probably down to LBA having a Saturday flight.

This means PIA at MAN overall now has 11 weekly flights. 5 weekly to ISB, 3 weekly to LHE and 3 weekly from KHI to JFK.

In preparation for the fight that's about to ensue on the Manchester-Islamabad route, PIA have increased the route from 5 to 6 weekly, flying every day bar Wednesday.

This route is going to get messy!

Cheers guys.

So PIA offer a one way service from MAN but not from JFK? Is that a 5th freedom issue?

The US authorities require flights originating in Pakistan bound for the USA to be additionally security-cleared in a trusted third country. However, there is no security issue concerning flights exiting the USA. Hence, only the outward LHE-JFK requires an en route security check (for which they use MAN). My understanding is that you could purchase a one-way ticket for the MAN-JFK leg if so desired, but negligible numbers actually do this for obvious reasons. The flight does not stop at MAN for the purposes of additional passenger uplift on the transatlantic portion of the route.
