And if memory serves me correctly, I think TWA and United also operated 72S aircraft in "change of gauge" services in Europe. WHBM, please correct me if my memory is faulty!
Per the OAG I've referenced for this question, there were no Pan Am 737-200 operations out of London (LHR) in late 1987. I think perhaps those 73S flights may have been a few years earlier...?

United of course purchased Pan Am's London routes in 1990 and so took over those intra-European flights out of LHR, though to what extent they kept all of PA's 1990 LHR-Europe routes versus expanding into other cities later on I don't know.
