I wonder how a flight dispatcher made the mistake to overflight Russia without PPR, or maybe was it the pilot that took a shorter route (the great circle route between ISB and MAN is indeed overflying Moscow FIR).

Pakistan regrets Russian action to divert passenger jet
(Updated at 1900 PST)
KARACHI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Monday insisted it had permission to fly through Russian airspace after one of its Manchester-bound Boeing-747s was forced to land by a Russian fighter jet.

The PIA also expressed regret over Sunday's incident, in which a Russian MiG-29 fighter intercepted the PIA jet and forced it to land at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

"The Pakistani Boeing-747 had permission to fly through Russian air space and we faxed this to the Russian aviation authorities after the plane was forced to land," PIA spokesman Bashir Ahmed told a news agency.

A Delta MD-11 was told to turn around a few months ago for the same reason.

In my opinion Russians are not so dumb to land a civilian aircraft just for the fun of it. If they did it so something went wrong for sure.

Well it seems we have a Russian article that says the Pakistanis were wrong and a Pakistani article that says the Russians are wrong. I am not qualified to say which one is correct, either of them COULD have made a mistake.

Here is another article.

PIA clarifies diversion of flight to Moscow
RECORDER REPORT
LAHORE : A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) scheduled flight PK-701 (ISB-MAN) was diverted and asked to land at Moscow airport by the Moscow Air Traffic Control due to misunderstanding as the Russian authorities were under the misconception that the PIA did not possess the requisite permission to fly over Russian airspace.

A PIA spokesperson on Monday clarified that under the current summer schedule, effective March 25, 2001, two PIA flights (PK-901 on Sunday and Thursday) have been operating on this particular route, flying over the Russian airspace and that there has been no record of any such incident.

The spokesperson added it appears that owing to some confusion within the Moscow air traffic control personnel, the said flight was asked to land at Moscow. Shortly after landing, the Moscow Control authorities allowed the flight to proceed to its destination as soon as it had completed refuelling and other departure related formalities.
