Thank you Raihan for the input and yes it seems PK-229 will be the actual flight number.

For some reason the flight today appeared on www.flightradar24.com as PK-8229 not PK-229.

Oman Airports website today showed PK-8229 on-time and PK-229 as cancelled. A codeshare flight would have had a different IATA airline code before number 8229.

And, it seems today the A320 is departing from Muscat for Lahore as flight PK-8230 instead of PK-230.
