I believe that after this year's PIA F27 crash in Multan, all of the F27 fleet were finally withdrawn.
I just checked the schedules on one of the routes previously flown by the F27 (ISB-PEW) and see that the a/c code is showing as '130'. I do remember reading that PIA would be forced to use Pakistan Air Force Herc's on certain routes.
I can not find any schedules for Islamabad-Saidu Sharif. I flew this route last January on a F27, and was wondering whether this route was axed when the F27s were withdrawn. Also, were any other routes withdrawn?
Any information would be appreciated.
