PIA 747-200 replacements.

Mon Feb 01, 1999 10:38 pm

PIA is looking to replace their 747-200 fleet with new aircraft. It seems that the carrier has decided to purchase 747-400s. They may be Ex-Phillipine machines.

Pakistan International Airlines use to be one of the best airlines in Asia, but the airline just a whil ago almost went bankrupt. The goverment was to blame is what I heard. Pakistan International Airlines I think will buy the 747-400's from Philippine Airlines because I don't think right now they could afford to buy new ones right. I think they will probally lease some 747-400's from PAL. But I think PIA should have some Airbus A340-200 in it's fleet or A330-200. Right now all they have is the 747-200 and A310 in it's international fleet.

Why would they want A340s and A330s, they do not fit the requirements PIA is looking for. I think the 747s will be new but in the interm PIA will lease from SIA, Cathay or another Asian Airline that operates handfuls of 747-400s.
