Good news.

PK should now be able to start non-stop flights to YYZ. It is no point having the MAN stopover as they do not carry pax on the MAN-YYZ leg of the journey.

true..they should use the LR's on the YYZ route..but does anyone know how the 777's will be used once boeing has provded PIA with all the 777's it requires ? i mean..will they assign the LR's a specific route and the 777-300's a specific route and so on ? Because i dont think the 777 is a viable option on flightsother than trans atlantic and trans pacific flights...keeping in mind the load factor..plus i've also heard lax is starting in jan...is it true ? maybe thats why PIA's floated a tender for a 777....

The IGW 656K will cover all the PK-USA/Canada routes non-stop, except PK-IAH.

Even PK-IAH can be covered non-stop by the 656k 772 with some load restrictions. Judging by the inconsequential loads PIA is carrying
on this route, it should not be a problem.

The 77W(340ER) can cover all PIA routes non-stop.

Getting two 77L for one non-stop twice a week(PK-IAH) route dosent make too much of a business sense.

The 777ER flew nonstop from Seattle to ISB due to no pax and cargo and full fuel tanks.

An SAA 747SP also managed to fly nonstop from Boeing Field to Cape Town on its delivery flight, as it carried only around 40 pax and no cargo.

American Airlines will operate a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft and once operational, this route would be the longest non-stop route of carrier's network. The plane would have 16 first-class, 35 business class and 185 economy seats for a total of 236 seats. Far less then 329 seats on PIA's 777's.

I am in Karachi attending an international carpet trade show. Tonight PIA hosted a dinner in honour of the visiting buyers and exhibitors.

District Manager Karachi (Mr. Shahi) announced that PIA is soon starting non-stop Karachi Los Angeles flights.

I think the LRs will go to Houston and LA.

Was any modification required to the plane? Boeing 777 has been in service for many years, so how come all of sudden this discovery is made? Who made this discovery? What does take off weight mean in lay man's term? how does it impact in increasing flying time?
