Hello guys, I am writing this from school. I was just wondering what routes PIA is going to use their 777's on. I heard that they were going to use their 777's to go to Texas, or somthing like that. Anyone know what routes they are going to use their 777's.

The B 772ERs will be replacing all currently operated flights by PIAs B 74Ms which means that LHR-MAN and JFK will be the 777 of PKs next year.
As for the nonstop announcement...yes it is TORONTO that will get the NONSTOP route KHI-LHE/ISB-YYZ-LHE/ISB-KHI.
As for someone writing above that IAH will get it via MADRID...that was mentioned by me just as a thought.
LAX will be 100% via a Far East destination most likely to be HKG as PIA and CX-HKG authorities are good buddies
I highly doubt that JFK will be nonstop but it will def see the B 772 and B 773s of PIA in the future. PIA does pretty well on its MAN-JFK route as the ex CX aircraft has PTVs in every seat and its J class seats recline 160 degree plus its much cheaper than AA-UAL-BA-CO to NYC from MAN.
PIA too mentioned that ORD is getting the nonstop flight...wise move but can anyone tell me how well PIA is doing on the BHX-ORD route?
Glasgow will get A 310s 100% but stranger things have happened such as PIA sending its B 743s regularly to CPH from KHI via ISB/LHE...why I dont know!!!

There hasn't been much news on what routes the 777s will be used on. They mentioned quite a few cities when they ordered them but not much since then. I did read a news item from the Pakistani press in the Daily Airliners.net newsletter about two months ago where a PIA official said they would fly them first to ORD and "Canada" (YYZ). There's nothing in the schedules yet even though they are getting their first 777 within two months.
We can only speculate until we hear something more official.
Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly...T5, CI, MU, LX and LH 777s

I hope that they start service to PHL. It would be easier for me to go to Pakistan then. Plus i would like to do some spotting of PIA aircraft. It would be easy for me to go to PHL because i live about 15 min away from it. What about the rest of the 747's that PIA has, are they going to use them on the new routes or just increase their traffic on the same routes?
