It would be nice to see AA with a 747 again. But, I know that it will never happen.

I am not sure that Alitalia used to fly the 744 in pax version, may be in F version. Alitalia has sold out all its pax 747.

Kuwait Airways operates a 744 for Emir-not pax.

Emirates 747's are operated by Atlas

Evergreen, UPS, and Kalitta only operate 747 classics

Corsair reortedly will begin operating 744's later this year pending acquiring from UA

Thrust-
Alitalia never operated the 744, all 747-443s built were taken up immediately by Virgin Atlantic.

Pronto-
Both Air Pacific and Ansett currently and used to respectively operate the 744.

Aussie747-
Please read the initial topic of the thread prior to posting, titles can be deceiving. The topic is regarding current and past operators of the 744 only. There would be a far larger list of operators if it concerned the entire 747 fleet all the way back to 1969.

Egyptair also operate two B747-366Ms in their fleet SU-GAL (Hatshepsut) and SU-GAM (Cleopatra). Both aircraft will be retired this year after almost 16 years of service. The A346 is expected to be re-ordered to compensate the for the drop in capacity:

Egyptair has no plans to acquire 747-400´s, am I right?

Henopol,

No MS is expected to re-order the A340-600 to replace the old 743s by the end of the year.
