At least following:
BAe ATP
747 SP for some Arab VIP's and Axis of evil carriers
707
Falcon 900
Handley Page Jetstream 31 (maybe the ugliest PAI model left)
ERJ 135
And of course the single Tajik Air YAK.

I made thread about those surviving PAI models: http://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=2468.0


AI world has came long way from the days I watched traffic at Heatrow and those PAI's Virgin A340's were so ugly that I needed to learn to install it manually so I never again need to see them. So came FSP and TFS and I've got hooked in AI world.

As far as I know the E135 paintkit was never released, so only the *official AIM* painters can do it. 
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Yes, you can! All the PAI models needs a big update. Even the BAe ATP doesn't have flaps!..  ::mad::

While we're on the theme of models needing replacement or upgrades, I'll vote for the AIA 747 series or a completely new version.

Well done to the AIG team for this new one though, seen it once in FS and its wonderful.

 notready I would vote for an aircraft not yet modelled for ai-purposes, like the Antonov An-148 or Antonov An-30. Also the Boeing 747SP could use a major upgrade. I think there are many models in much greater need of an upgrade than the AIA 747 wich is doing its job fine for now..

All remaining FSPainter and PAI models needs to be replaced. I still think that the AIA, AIG, TFS etc is not needed to update.. Only PAI and FSP.

I use the Posky 747SP as there aren't many flying and the framerate hit is bare minimum.

That reminds me of the very beginning days of ai-traffic, back in 2002 I think, when no ai-models where available at all. I can still remember the 'relief' in the community when PAI came out with their FPS-friendly ai planes in ready to use airline packages.
