PIA decides to buy new.

Aug 22, 2002
[P]Pakistan International Airlines apparently turned down both 777 white tails from Boeing and three 777s from United Airlines and will place an order for eight new aircraft with Boeing. PIA cited configuration problems with the white tails and with training and support packages from United. The order is expected to be placed this month with delivery of the first aircraft in Jan. 2004. Two additional aircraft arrive later that year, two in 2006, three in 2008 and there are options for three in 2011.[/P]
