Egyptair is retiring two of its 777s, which reportedly are destined for PIA.

Source: skyliner-aviation.
PIA will also take two ex-Saudia 747-300s.

Probably the two 15 year old 200ERs?

They have two 1997 deliveries and two 2001 deliveries. If they're looking to sell to raise money, I'd guess it be the newer ones...

PIA's fleet of 777-200s are all more recent builds.

What is PIA? Is that a real airline code?

EgyptAir 777-200ER have Pratt engines, PIA's 777 have GE 90 engines. Why would PIA want odd ball older 777's ?

Remember this is PK.

At one point, they were operating 747s with PW, GE and RR engines concurrently.

How many MS planes are in storage? Last time I flew through CAI, I saw quite a few!

First of all, there aren't many used 777s available. And the price may be another aspect.

It is the correct ICAO code - PK is the IATA code. IATA is used by the reservation and interlining systems, ICAO by ATC and flightcrew

Thanks for that, so its two MS-777s instead of two at least ten-year-older SV-743s.

That article infers that they wanted a lease arrangement for the Hajj season, which is nearly over.

Thanks, some people forget that there is more than one way to identify.

Both are acceptable codes/abbreviations... like UA and UAL...
