I wonder whart made FI report this, they must be confused with the F27 replacement plant.
PIA operate their 733's internationally to, Colombo, Dhaka, Kathmandu, Delhi, Kabul, Mashhad, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Dubai, Doha, Bahrain, Dammam, Kuwait and Muscat and domestically to atleast a dozen cities.

My info is, that they are replacing the F27s with ATR 42-500s, used ones as there are a couple available. Dash 8 would be new to me.
Does someone know how long PIA´s domestic sectors are? If they are short, an ATR 72-500 could probably make sense as on very short hops the times are basically the same, however the costs are drastically lower. The B733s could then be redeployed to longer sectors.
