Probably due to airline's Boeing 777-300ER registration AP-BID grounded in Lahore since August 8 - http://www.historyofpia.com/forums/view ... =1&t=26786.

Seems her sistership AP-BHW was scheduled to perform flight PK-791 from Islamabad to Birmingham on August 9.

However, on August 9, AP-BHW arrived in Burundi as flight PK-8001 from Jeddah to bring home Pakistan Army contingent that took part in United Nations (UN) Peacekeeping Mission.

Maybe, originally PIA had plan to use AP-BID for Burundi flight on August 9?
