I believe this incident happened a while back. GF-A330 brought up the topic, although there was only one response. The plane was headed to Ankara.

According to, it was headed to London-Heathrow as PK787--so therefore it must have been a 74M--AP-BAK, or AP-BAT. Ankara doesn't make sense since PIA does not fly there.

Airmale where did you get this information from? Dont you think these kinds of extremely inaccurate statements are typical of the aviation reporting done in Pakistan....really bothers me.
By the way i was just thinking couple of days ago that i had'nt seen any post from you in many days...Good to have you back...
