6 PIA 747-218B aircraft have been grounded due to age and poor maintanance

The airlines two 747-236M combi are still operating ads they were purchased brand new from Boeing.

Does anyone know when these planes were grounded, and how old they were, when thet were put down.

I don't think that they are grounded because how else is PIA going to operate on most of their long haul flights? They do have a busy schedule.

I can account for atleast four that are grounded, two are so badly covered in dirt theyve turned Beige and at first glance look like the Saudi Arabian Airlines livery, think they been "stored" for atleast a year if not more because the then MD Mr Abbasi had announced that all a/c(some A300s also were grounded) had been made operational and carried out the full Hajj operation for PIA in 2000 Smile

.....up there with the best!
