Based on my sources, it has been unofficially learnt that the subject a/c has been written off and will be cannibalized into a source of spare parts for the rest of the ATR fleet. Someone closer to the hearts and minds of PIA can confirm.

Regards,
Although i haven't seen pictures of the incident as yet but i had this feeling by all that i read and have seen in past that this A/C could very well be written off in today's time as insurance companies don't want to fix when they can get more from the salvage. I hope this dosen't happens but if it indeed did or would happen, i for one won't be surprised at all.

Maybe our brother Riz can share some light on this also.....

According to an article that appeared in USA TODAY in October 2005, some airlines (superstitious airlines I guess) retire flight number after a crash involving human fatalities.
I can't help but believe that 191 is unlucky after both American and Delta Airlines lost airplanes with that same flight number in separate incidents. Most airlines retire the number of their flight after a crash. I thought skittish passengers might avoid an ill-fated flight number but both AirTran and United told me that retiring those numbers is done out of respect for the families of those who lost loved ones in those tragic incidents.

i hope the plane gets back online...........it would cause a substantial losss to an average of 12 cockpit and a alot more cabin crew members monthly..lesser flying hours. I hope the insurance company has it covered...
anyone has any idea on the company insurance policy?
AP-BHO had a little over one year service with the airline and fromt he pictorials it seems to be in need of re skinning and replacing wheels. When can we expect a n offical report fromt engineering on this one?

Any updates on AP-BHO.

It would be sad to see a two year old aircraft being scrapped.

Btw, youngest aircraft lost by PIA in an accident was Fokker F-27 Friendship MK 200 (registration AP-ATT). It was delivered as brand new aircraft to PIA on July 23, 1965 and crashed on October 8, 1965 while operating Rawalpindi to Skardu flight which means ill-fated AP-ATT remained in service with PIA for less than three months.

Is AP-BHO economically repairable or not? Or is it insurance company taking time to decide aircraft's fate?
