Hi,
saw 5 different PIA 747s at Manchester on Sunday, 29JUN03.
Is this a regular phenomenon at MAN ?
Can anyone supply details about the routings of these aircraft ?
Aircraft present during the day were:
AP-BFU / BFW / BFX / BGG / BAK
Thanks for any information...
Best regards...Heinz

3 PIA 747's at MAN in one day is a regular phenomenon. One flight is west bound to JFK the other East bound to Pakistan and the third is a terminator at MAN. The other two could be the extra sections flown in the summers to compensate for the extra demand. Also a delayed flight from the previous day, not very uncommon in PIA.
As they say about PIA: Perhaps Itmay Arrive

USA(New York) and Pakistan(Karachi-Lahore or Karachi-Islamabad). From this month PIA will be flying to the US from London Stanstead Airport, so MAN will only be getting five flights a week.

Airmale: The London-Stanstead routing has still not been made official. I have heard about this change from the PIA inner circles, but i believe the change is not due in July. Sabre is still accepting bookings on the MAN route.

From what I can remember, they were;
PK 717 (KHI-MAN-JFK),
PK 712 (JFK-MAN-ISB),
PK 701 (to/from ISB),
PK 709/710 (the delayed Friday service to/from LHE), and
PK 7192/710D (in from KHI going to to LHE?)


Didn't see anything about Stansted in PK's draft schedule for the winter timetable.
