I have read a couple of posts which state that Pan Am, which recently purchased quite a few United 727s, will not be able to operate them dometically for quite some time.

Why is this? Did United and Pan Am agree to some sort of "no compete" clause?

Just curious.

One of the conditions when the current owner bought the operating certificate and certain other assets out of bankruptcy court in Jun-1998 was that the FAA only allowed them to operate a maximum of 8 or 9 aircraft (it was 8 or 9, I don't remember which). I'm not sure if this "rule" passed and the current stipulation is another, but you should notice that the FAA website indicates that they only operate 7 aircraft with the current certificate (while they have already acquired most of the 24 727's). I would guess the stipulation is still being enforced. Presumably, it would have to do with their fitness to operate more than "said" aircraft.

Some of Pan Am's ex-UAL 727s are being used for spare parts.
