What routes did Pan Am utilise their 707-121's on after the introduction of the -321

I am aware this probably can not be assessed from PA time tables as the generic "JET" designation was used by Pan Am, and when they did show flights as being "707', I doubt they differentiated between the model.

In addition, in what years did they convert them to "B" standard?

I understood they were never used on Pacific services, but other than that cannot be sure. I believe the -121 had a smaller wing than the -321, so less fuel capacity and less range. I would guess Caribbean and Central America routes.

PA had six 121's and two 139's. It appears they were converted to 121B/139B between 1963 and 1964.
N709PA (707-121) was written off at Elkton, 8 Dec 1963.
N779PA (707-139B) was written off at New York, 7 Apr 1964.
N708PA (707-121B) was written off at Montserrat, 17 Sep 1965.

The three aircraft written off were all on flights from points in the Caribbean (SJU-BWI-PHL, SJU-JFK, FDF-ANU-JFK?)
