Do the loads on this sector justify the use of a 777 or is PIA slowly starting to withdraw A310s from its routes ?

or is it both?

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

I dont think this will happen this year. The 3 777s are fully utilized with the 6 weekly cross atlantic flights. I believe this would have to wait until more jets arrive.

Very good ! The loads from southeast Asia to Japan are always high and I think it´s necessary for PIA to change to B777 in the future.

Highly unlikely to happen this year thats for sure...maybe by next FEB when 2 more B 777s arrive.

The extra cargo carrying capacity of the B 777 too will come in handy for PIA versus what the A 310 can carry in its belly.

I remember reading many years ago that lots of Japanese and Chinese tourists fly PIA via ISB from NRT-PEK to KATHMANDU-NEPAL !!!

But really is demand that big to justfy replacing the A 310s 170 seaters with 327 seaters B 772s??? I would prefer it if they flew the KHI-ISB-PEK-NRT route instead 3 times a week with A 310s then do twice weekly with B 772s!!!

JFK has been getting the 777, but the PIA website doesnt list it on the 777 routes. Have they replaced the 747-200 on that route? I was planning to go to JFK and wanted to see the 747 classic in the old colors that's why I'm asking.

PIA will fly the 777 to Newyork only for the Month of April. Once the Service to Houston starts in May, all flight to JFK would once again be taken over by the 747.

thanks PIA747. So it will be sometime in May then? (remember I'm only interested in the -200 in the old colors not the -300 in eurowhite livery)

btw, does Canada get the 747 or the A310?
