If PIA defines a certain frame, I guess its just for one or a small number of flights to replace a 777 during maintenance.

Makes me wonder how many 747s of PIA are still active? Last I heard (January this year) one 742 and several 743s are still flying.

Yes, one 742 BAK and five 743s are active.

One 743 BFX has been scarpped and the other 742 BAT is grounded due to one of its engines being leased to Orient Thai.

Well you'll need to get to MAN early as there will be thousands of spotters here for the Champions League flights (around 45 extra charters on the 27th alone)

I don't understand why a woman who is that far into her pregnancy would take the risk of flying. I realize it is just 6 months but still, you never know what kind of stress a person can undergo on an airplane and what kind of effect that can have on a baby.

Doctors would suggest not in the last month - generally.
Airline restrictions are anywhere from 7-30 days before your due date.
All these obviously change when a woman has complications.

Huh? For real?

Pregnant women in general aren't the delicate flowers that you seem to be making them out to be otherwise their OB/GYN would have them not leaving their homes as soon as the pregnancy test shows positive. There are plenty of other stressors out there in the world besides riding in an airplane.

Thank you.

Have they straightened up their financial issues? I thought they were in deep straights 6-12 months ago.
