Yes, registration of not taken up aircraft can be used for another aircraft.

AP-BGY looks stunning in the full livery, hopefuly all of PIA’s fleet gets that look. There is nothing wrong with it

what is so stunning about a livery that is a mixture of the 1970s and 2004 and 2010 liveries all mixed up.

The green and gold stripe from 1970s along with a cramped Pakistan International from the same era.

The flag from 2010.

the large PIA from 2004.

Its pathetic.

Apparently PIA will replace 2 B777’s with 4 A320s?
Could be AP-BHW and AP-BGL ?

Why would PIA replace BGL and BHW, both are owned by PIA.

Obviously the aircraft being replaced are the two dry leased BMG and BMH.
The newer dry leased A320s will replace some of older dry leased A320s in PIA fleet.
Abbas there was a statement by PIA in the press that four A320s will replace two 777s.
