Hey Sanjay,
Thanks for the Info.Was it 9M-MPA that was leased to PIA?
So PIA has leased MH 777 and going to Lease the 744..
Can u check with ur Source whom u got the info of the 747 that a MAS 777 (9M-MRE) has been leased to PIA too?

Pieter, Apparently PIA is using their Own aircraft for the Hajj Flight and are Leasing 2 Aircraft from MH to Cover up for Mainly the European Routes.Do Correct Me if i'm Wrong.

Good! Extra revenue for MAS and keeps our birds flying in our colours! This must be where those 4 744s are being dispatched and hence the lower numbers listed in the "Going Places Mag"

And that's all added up to 4, so make sense now!!

2 744s are for sale.
1 in storage perhaps.
1 to PK.

Actually, the whole "13 747-4H6" in the Going Places mag could very well be a mistake..

Pieter & Sanjay,
Mas is currently using 2 of it's 747 for the Hajj Flights..So going place magazine is correct.
So those 2 that were withdrawn are being used for the Hajj Flights.
9M-MPA is probably the one which is withdrawn or is for sale..

According to this website, and noted by T. Azahan, 9M-MPA is a sold aircraft.

Yes, I forgot about the hajj flights! hehehe smile.gif Time for a whole lot of ground service vehicles to be painted all white specifically for those services! and we'll get plenty of Saudia midnight runs too!
