From today's ATW Online

United sells 24 727s to Pan Am
Dateline: Monday February 18, 2002

United Airlines is selling 24 727-200s, part of the fleet of 75 it recently retired, to Pan American Airways.

United Services, an affiliate of the airline, will deliver one aircraft per week to the new entrant with the famous name over the next six months. The 727s were manufactured between 1978 and 1980 and will operate on routes outside the US, United said.

"We were slowly retiring our fleet of 727-200s over a three-year period, but following the events of Sept. 11, which precipitated cutbacks in service, a decision was made to retire the remaining 727-200s at the end of last October," Manager-Aircraft Sales Martin Lawrence said in a statement. The aircraft are in storage at a facility in the Mojave Desert, he noted.

Under the same agreement, United will sell Pan Am three 727 simulators and a cockpit procedures trainer. That equipment will be moved to Sanford, Fla., where Pan Am is establishing a training facility.

They're probably getting a great bargain, but where are they going to operate all of these aircraft outside of the US?

first of all, the origional thread of this topic has many replied to it already so i'm using this one!  Smile It's great to hear that Pan Am will be flying in the Carribean and South America, just like the old airline. It's a great feeling to see the blue globe back in the air and in other countries again! so in the future, after Carribean and South America, will they go Europe? i've heard long ago that they are considering Europe with DC-10s? But that is quite uncertain and far-fetched from now, certainly with the thought of them going back to Asia! But hope that it's all possible!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
