It will be nice to see change of aircraft by PIA to MAN. Apparently this is the first time PIA will be operating the A310 into to Manchester.

The above info is confirmed by OAG.
I searched for Karachi-Manchester and it states 1 stop. I presume this is Islamabad ?

Departure from MAN to KHI has two stops ? and inbound has 1 ?

hmmmm...

I am also presuming this.

Maybe, a smaller capacity is needed for the Toronoto route.

The 747 can be used elsewhere, for the high density routes.

aircraft type not mentioned but most probably A310 Smile

The service starts on 29th January on Tuesday PK 703 from Lahore and Friday PK 723 from Karachi, the latter service does not make much sense since it has to fly North to Islamabad and then South again to Dubai, weird and impractical, but then thats PIA Smile
