Yep, I did not include a time line with my comment (as I did not remember exactly when Pan Am actually operated the Boeing 737-200 into London Heathrow); I merely mentioned they did do so at one point.

And you are correct: PA did operate 73S service from LHR a few years earlier, in 1985 to be a bit more precise, according to their fall timetable at the time.

Here are a couple of sched examples involving no less than three different aircraft types being operated by Pan Am with the same through service flight number......
