My hope would be for them to leave Leeds to the likes of Shaheen or Air Blue and focus on delivering reliable, consistent daily service to MAN.

I wasn't even aware LBA could handle a 777? Would it not be extremely performance restricted out of LBA?

I have been told that once LBA is 'a little more up to scratch' then Emirates will launch DXB

I doubt for the Pak community living in Bradford modern equipment matters, so they are safe in that, but like you said the route is a loss maker and PK had almost pulled out of there.
Yes the 320s will be for regional use only, however since it was suggested Airblue fly there with their narrowbodies perhaps PIA too could with those.
|Quoting LuftyMatt (Reply 13):|
With what equipment though? If as to be believed the A332's are on their way out, then the next size closest to that would either be a 777-200 or an A340.
|Quoting PlymSpotter (Reply 16):|
Those are both also leaving, they aren't looking at destinations which can't support a 77W or 388. Once MAN is at 4 daily (2x 77W, 2x 388) and NCL is twice daily on 77W then I have a feeling you may well indeed be surprised. My only concern is that LBA won't have the appetite to make the airport 77W ready and would rather court another carrier for a ME link.

It was once such an innovator and leader and had such a reputation for quality.
